Financier Tells Clapp Com
mittee About 1904 Con -tribution.
(Continued1 from First Page.)
neyance at being- the cynosure of the
crowd, which atralned and taped at
him In a (ever of curiosity.
Morgan waa aworn by Senator Clapp.
"John Plerpont Morgan, 219 Madlaon
avenue. New York, banker," waa Mor
gan'a first atatiment.
"On the Id of September there ap
peared In the New York Times a state
ment by Charles Edward Russell, say
Inf. "i now charge that Roosevelt comi
manded that J. P. Morgan raise $100,000
more In 1904." said Benator Clapp.
Senator Clapp read Russell's state-
ment In full, that Morgan talked over
the- telephone to Washlntgon a half
hour, and Including the statement that
Morgan called Roosevelt "that foot
In the White House."
"Do you recall a visit with Wayne
MaoVeaghr' Senator Clapp asked.
I do not," the witness answered posi
tively. "Did you ever talk to President
Roosevelt over the 'phoneT"
"I never talked with President Roose
velt so far as I can remember."
Denies All Communications.
"That circumstance of the telephone
conversation Is absolutely made of the
whole cloth. I never had any communk
cation by mall, telegraph, or telephone
with Mr. Roosevelt at the White House,
or with his secretaries either."
"Did you contribute to the Republican
campaign In 1904?"
"In October I contributed 1100,000, and
on the 1st of November 150,000 addi
tional." "Did you contribute any mora?"
"No, not that 1 know of."
"To whom did you make theae con
tributions?" "I assume to Mr. Bliss. I do not re
call the actual payment, but my record
show it that way."
"The payments were made In money,"
"Did liarrlman solicit any contribu
tion?" "I don't think Mr. liarrlman ever
made any solicitation to me," the finan
"The firs: solicitation was made by
Mr. Bliss: I don't know who mado the
second, but I think It came" and
here Morgan stopped hesitatingly, as
though searching his memory "well.
Bliss waa one of them. Mr. Odell was
Went For the State.
"My impression is that the money waa
paid to the national committee, but that
a good deal of the IS0.00O item went to
New York, to Mr. Odell."
"Do you know of any other contribu
tions In 190iT" asked Clapp.
"I do not"
,'?!! you mako any Congressional con
tribution In 1904.7"
"I don't remember any."'
Morgan read from a prepared list his
account of contributions.
"In 1908 the only contribution I made
waa the $31,000 I paid to Mr. Sheldon,"
Mr. Morgan wag asked if Chairman
Cortelyou waa present when the second
cuniriouuon was aiscugsea.
"I have had various Interviews with
Mr. Cortelyou," he said, "but I don't
recall this occasion. Mr. Bliss was a
warm personal friend of mine, and had
once been a partner of my father.
When they wanted anything, it was
customary to send Mr. Bliss."
This sally drew a laugh, and from
Mr. Morgan a (trim smile.
"Did you discuss the matter of con
tributions with Mr. Cortelyou?"
"No. I don't recall anv discussion nt
campaign funds with him In 1004. though
it may have occurred."
"You had a number of business as
sociatespartners In your firm in 1904?"
Inquired Senator Pomerene.
Mr. Morgan was not hearing very
well, and at this point changed his seat
from the little dais provided for the
witness to a place near the end of the
committee's table, handy to the Sena
tor from Ohio.
"Yes, I had," he replied.
"Mr. George W. Perkins was one of
"Would contributions be a personal
matter, or would they be taken up at
conference of yourself and associates?"
Considered At Conference.
"After conference; though In 1904 the
mstter waa almost entlro'y with me,"
"Do you know If Mr. Perkins made
any contribution then?"
"I do not, but I don't think so."
"Did your Arm contribute to any
other party than the Republicans?"
"Not that I know of; nor myself, per
sonally." Arked about his talk with Mr. Cor
telyou. Mr. Mor?nn said lie rtlJn't ttlk
politics with Cortelyou during the 1904
campaign, but did afterward, during the
financial troubled of 1!7. when Cor
telyou was Secretary of the Treasury.
He doubted if he talked with Cortelyou
on either politics or finance In 1904.
"Did you have any conferences with
financial men, on tho political situation,
"I have no doubt I did; but I don't
recau tnem now."
"Any with E. H. HarrlmanT"
"It's likely that I did."
"With Charles S. Mellen?"
"Very possibly; I saw him often."
"With officials of tho great Insurance
He Discussed Politics.
"That's difficult to answer; I dis
cussed politics and the outlook with
prominent people when they came into
my office; thousands, I suppose, during
"Was there ever a conference of
financial interests, to consider what
should be contributed by them?"
"No; I never had any talk with any
body on such a subject. I mitv have
advised with Mr. Bliss about how In get
contributions; I don't recollect."
"When you subscribed your first
1100,000, was Mr. Bliss engaged in rais
ing; a special fund?"
"I think that amount had been prom
ised long before; It was a contribution
we would make in the regular coursa
of things; we would nave made It tour
"You were especially Interested In tho
results of tho campaign?"
"Yes and my firm, aa well."
Mr. Morgan said ho never heard any
thing about the attitude of tho blK In
surance companies, nave hh ln might
have casually inquired from Mr. Per
kins, who was a trustee of the New
York Life. I never heard of any un
demanding, or of any large fund raised,
among the large Interests, and I don't
believe thero waa one."
"Ever talk with Harrtman about tho
effect the election's outcome might
have on the railroads."
"I may have; I don't recall."
"Mr. Mollen was supporting Roose
relt?" Never Had Promise.
"Yes, but I don't know If his railroad

forward and gestured, earnestly. "1

In the belief that It waa for the good
of tho country. Wo never gave In con

could be of benefit to us; and we never

"I never had such a meeting or un

that we would support the Republicans,
but I don't believe there was ever a
conference or a combination of Inter

"Was there ever any conference look

nomination of a Democrat satisfactory
to the large financial Interests?"
"I don't think I understand," quorled
Mr. Morgan. The question was re
peated. Democrat Not Sought,

"No," replied the financier, very
dryly. "I don't think there was any

called. lie was assistant treasurer of
the Republican committee In 1904, and
said he didn't know of a big contribu
tion by Archbold; ."certainly not under
that name;" but he thought it might
have been contused with a large con
tribution by H. II. Rogers. He knew
that three, four or live men gave UW,
000 each and three Insurance companies
gave 310,000 each. He knew about the
liarrlman fund, but after eight years
could recall no details.

"Once, after tho campaign," added
Judge Deuell, "I talked with Mr. Bliss
about those matters; it was when the
Hughes ' committee waa investigating
the Insurance companies. He told me
that in 1896 every bank and trust com

"next nothing" to do with contribu

campaign. As to tho big contributions,
he suggested, some of them may have
come In cash and been recorded with
out any names of donors.
"You know," he said, "that some
people would come In and leave us

didn't like anybody to know of their
Judge Duell had a most Interesting
statement to make about the so-called
Harrman contribution. He told of
having talked It over with Mr. Bliss
before it was made.
Later tho witness said that as ho
understood it the money came from five
contributors who advanced 360.000 each.
They included liarrlman and Morgan,
Meyer Dragged Into It.
The witness dragged Secretary of the
Navy Meyer Into the campaign con
tributions of 1904. This doubtless will
result In Mr. Meyer being called as a
witness. In explaining why he did not
know more about the contributions, the
witness explained that the committee
had a number of oerSons collecting
funds. Secretary Meyer collected them
for New England, E. T. Btotesbury, at
Philadelphia, Andrew Mills In the Union
League Club, of New York, and Charlea
O. Dawes in Chicago. The totals wore
turned over to tne committee, ana tnat

ing who were the contributors.
He recalled that David Jayne Hill
frave 32,000 to tho campaign, and White

recollection of the fact, but the news
papers had said he signed a receipt of

"I don't doubt I signed It," he said.
He spoko of two or three smalt con
tributors. In response to questions by
Senator Pomerene the witness said he

No Conditions Attached.
Judge Duell said he had talked freoly
with Chairman Cortelyou about the to
tals of receipts and disbursements, but
not about contributions. He thought
that no contributions would have been
unacceptable to the committee unless
conditions were attached.
"If there were no conditions at
