Robert N. Harper, president of the
District National Bank and former
president of the Chamber of Com
merce, Is preparing a plan for tbe
financing and erection of a hal) for
submission to the Chamber and to Con
gress at its next session.
Project Co-operative Plan.
The plan contemplates a co-operative
arrangement between the Government
and the clttltens of he District whereby
the former shall donate the ground for
such a building, preferably the site ot
the formor Pennsylvania railroad sta
tion at Sixth and street northwest
with perhaps, some additional space
adjoining, and the clUsena shall ftnanes
the erection of a building o cost 'about,
1500,000 through ths. Issuance, of loteMst
bearing, bonds, the Interest and elnjunjr
fund on the bonsai to Jxytriet by. the
income from the building. While Mr.
Harper has not (completed the detailed
figures of the project thts. In tbe
rough. Is the general scheme.
The Government's participation In tha
project as an equitable ana Just expec
tation Is based on the fact that accord
lng to the Secretary of tho Interior, the
Government Is a large loser ntery four
years by reason of tne necessity of va
cating a large amount ot the space In
the 1'enslon building to prepare for
the Inaugural Ball, and the loss of time
of employes forced into Idhtsness by
the upsetting of the routine arrange
ments In the big building. Tbs Secre
taries of the Interior estimate, every
four years, that the Government loses
enough and more.- through this disar
rangement to Justify tne erection ot
some Dlace In which to hold the big
quadrennial social function.
Nor Is this the only reason why the
Government should share In the enter
prise. Last week, at the Invitation ot
the Government tbe Fifteenth Interna
tional Congress on Hygiene and De
mography held Its sesslon In no less
than four seprate buildings, so scattered
that It was found of the utmost Incon
venience to the foreign vlsltori to find
them, much less to travel between
them to tbe various sessions and social
functions. If the United States Is In
viting visitors from foreign landt to
meet In the American Capital, it Is
Folnted out, the Government should
urnlsh a suitable meeting place for
Government Could Use Building.
It Is also pointed out by Mr. Harper
that the International Brotherhood of
Carpenters and Joiners, the American
Public Health Association, and tha
American Association of Commercial
"Executives, all International gatherings,
were held here, though the Government
was not responsible for their presence.
Given the ground for a suitable build
ing, Mr. Harper shows, the building, to
cost halt a million, could be erected
through the proceeds of a bond Issue
based on the whole undertaking The
building ought to earn readily enough to
pay the Interest and sinking fund In
cases of International gatherings,
brought here by the Government the
United States would be quite as willing
to pay for the use ot the convention
building ss for the use of any other,
and the citizens' organizations. If they

Pennsylvania spent $95,000 in their effort
to carry Alleghany county (Pittsburgh), and then were badly defeated.
That Senator Flinn spent $28,000 in carrying Alleghany county
That the total expenses of the Roosevelt national campaign to
date have been $141,675.
The first witness was Eton H. Hooker, treasurer of the national
Progressive committee, who presented a very detailed showing of the
contributions and expenditures; first, in the fight for Roosevelt dele-
gates in the Chicago Republican convention; second, a similarly
detailed statement of contributions and expenses of the Progressive
party, since it was formed.
Senator Flinn mentioned, quite casually, but with some empha
sjs and air of belligerency, that ''if Senator Penrose says I offered
him a million dollars, or two million, to be appointed Senator, Penrose
is a liar."
CLASH WITH OLIVER.
While Flinn was on the stand, the little scene between himself
and Senator Oliver was decidedly entertaining. They both live in
Pittsburgh, and have been political enemies of the real, blown-in-the
bottle Pittsburgh kind for many years. Flinn was plainly shooting
his testimony about Pennsylvania affairs straight at Oliver, and the
Senator didn't like it at all. As soon as he got a chance, he took
Flinn in hand and started a long line of questions designed to get
the Oliver side of the story into the Record. This, being a story of
local affairs in western Pennsylvania, finally caused some protest
from members of the committee.
Elon H. Hooker, treasurer ot tbo Progressive national committee, was
the first witness. He was treasurer of the New York county Roosevelt
committee, beginning In February and gradually worked Into treasurorshlp
of tho national committee.
PRESENTS ROOSEVELT BOOKS. '
Mr, Hooker presented completo copies of the records of tbe treasurer
of the New York county committee, which have all been filed heretofore
with tbo secretary ot state ot New York, at Albany.
"This Is a statement ot all receipts and expenditures of tho Roosevelt
committee of tbe city of Now York, In the primary campaign," he said.
"Tbe secretary of state said It was the most complete ever made by any
political campaign. It shows every receipt and every expenditure down to
$5. There wero no expenditures In the State ot which I know, aside from
these, except that Amos Flnchot was treasurer ot a league of clubs that
raised $11,000, and that reported In full to the secretary of state."
Mr. Hooker spoke ot the Roosevelt national organization In the pri
mary campaign, and said while It had no treasurer, he did such work ot that
nature ob was required. He presented a statement ot that work also.
"Do you know ot any contributions other than those that appear In
"I bollove Emlen Roosevelt sent 15,000 for Calonel Roosevelt, to
Senator Dixon." This last statement, Mr. Hooker said, of national pre
convention funds, had never been made public before. It Included data
ot tho expenses at Chicago.
"Did you solicit funds, personally, for the campaign?"
"Just as bard as I could," smiled Mr, Hooker.

from a list or tno contriDutors. , s j
