he no longer felt very friendly.
Story MacVeagh Told.
"Outing the conversation Mr. Mac
Veagh ald, aa I "now recollect It; that
one morning, late In October, ' 1994, ho
had bten In Mr. Morgan's office In New
Jfork. At secretary entered and asked
Mr. Morgan personally to answer a'
.telephone call from Mr. Harriman. Mr.
.Morgan demurred, but went out ttf tele
phone. Returning presently, he seemed
displeased with what had transpired,
arid demanded to know:
"What do you suppose that man. In
the White .House I do not recall
whether the word 'maniac' was used,
but at anyhow It was an expression In
nowise complimentary wants now7 It
seems that Mr. 'Harriman has accepted
the President's Invitation to dlnn with
him, and now he comes back wanting
more campaign money."
"Mr. Morgan indicated the opinion
that there was no need of raising more
money; but Mr. Harriman was Insist
ent; he wanted to raise JffiO.OOO. of
which he would give 150,000, and he
wanted 150,000 more from Mr. Morgan.
"Mr. MacVeagh said that he observed,
facetiously, that to give the money
Probably wouldn't subject Mr, Morgan's
solvency to any undue strain. Mr. Mor

make contributions that were not

On a brief cross-examination the
witness said that he had no further
Information about campaign fund
matters. He added thai his recollec

than his own.
Other Important Testimony.
A mass of Important testimony wns
laid before the committee by five wit
nesses, Charles It. Crane, Lewis Ham
merllng, of Mew Tork, and Col. John
J. Hannan, secretary to Senator Ia
Follette; In addition to Mr. Welllver
and Mr. Russell.
Conspicuous In the testimony was the
atatement of Charles R. Crane, of Chi
cago, who was alleged by Elom II.
Hooker, treasurer of the Progressive
party, to have given 170,000 each to the
La Follette fund and the Wilson fund.
Mr. Crane got close attention through
out his testimony. He said he gave

"How much did you give to Governor
"Ten thousand." said Crane, "In two
contributions one on March 28 and an
other April 30."
Crane's attention was then called to
Hooker's testimony that he. Crane, told
Hooker that he had given $70,000 each
to Senator La Follette and Wilson's
"I never had such a conversation,"
said Crane. "I talked with him, but
never told him I gave any such sums."
In connection wtlh his testimony,
Crane made the following statement:
"My contribution, to the Wilson fund
was made after It had become appar
ent that La Follette probably could not
be nominated. I desired to see a Pro
gressive nominated and elected Presi
dent. I could very well support both
Wilson and La Follette, as both men
are .Progressives. That I was contrib
uting to both the Wilson and La Fol
lette funds was known to the managers
of the two candidates, I made no se
cret of the fact.

"I have been In sympathy with the
Progressive movement for many years.
"A word on another matter. During
the primary campaign, particularly dur
ing the California campaign, I was
stated to be the head of the so-called
'Bath Tub trust,' the Inference being, of
course, that I was Interested In politics
to protect that organization. Let me
aay that I nor no member of my family

NEW York, N. Y., July 28, 1912.-"About six months ago red
blotches appeared all over my face and body, which itched so
I could not sleep. The troublo first began on my face, and
then on my arms, and on parts of my body. It was very itchy, and
burning, especially at night. I tried many salves and medicines to
clear my blood, but they only drove the sores from one place to
another. I was ashamed to go out in the street. I saw an advertise
ment for Rea'nol Soap and Ointment, and sent for a sample. I used
them and they helped me enough to assure me-4hey would cure me,

You'll note one feature absent the showy trimmings generally linked

While comparatively free of trimmings, the tailoring of the suits
