Depew on Stand.
Former Senator Chauncey M. Depew of
Kew Tork, sprightly ana 'active In'splto
of hi yean, mado an Interesting wit
ness. Mr. Depew, In substance, -told
tho- committee he had given $37,1)00 to
the State and national campalgna of
1901. Ho waa a regular contributor to
campaign funda, he aald.
.Early in 1904, he gave $10,000, what he
thought waa hla fair share, to Odell (or
the New York State campaign.
( "I) heard nothing more until I wna
coming home from campaigning In tho
Btateone Sunday In October. I met
Mr. Twombly, who told mo Mr. llarrl
man waa railing I20O.OQ0 to go through
the national committee to the Btato
campaign In Now York."
(Senator Depew did not recollect ap
clflcAlly, but thought he had given
10,000 to thla. Later Mr. Twombly told
him Harrlmon waa raising an cnicru
oner fund ot $(0,000 or 100.000 for the
Btate( campaign and he gave (17,000

Senator Depew then recounted the ef
forts made to sidetrack him for am
bassador. That, waa lqte In December,
bo aald. when Mr. Twonfbly Informed
him a messenger had come from the
Htato organization or Harrlman tell
ing him he could not he elected Sena

tor Depew. "that If I had given up tho
Senatorshlp for the nmbassadorshlp I
would not have boen appointed as he
had another man In sight."
Mr. Depew to)d of giving contribu
tions to the Congressional campaigns,
of giving $5,000 to $3,000 to tho 1908 cam
paign and $500 to nhe pre-conventlon
campaign 7for Taft this year.
Throughout, the testimony of Depew
was Interspersed by lively sallies, which
kept the crowd amused. If was the
old-time Depew at hla best on the stand
Piatt Raised Fund.-
One of the most Interesting bits of
the Depew testimony was hla state
toment that In 1004 Senator Piatt raised
$60,000 to $100,000 on his own account
Piatt wanted to spent It as he pleased
for the benefit of the campaign. With
difficulty Depew prevailed on him to
turn the money over to the State com
mittee. Senator Clapp asked questions de
signed to bring out whether the In
terest of Harrlman In the campaign In
the State of New York In 1904 was due
to the fact he regarded lllgglns as
friendly to his purposes In regard to
certain Erlo canal contracts. Ilut Sen
ator Depew threw no light on this.
The testimony went a considerable
length Into the motives underlying these
huge contributions In 1904. Depew aald
Dllss was largely Interested In cotton
mills. He admitted cotton Interests had
contributed to keep the cotton tariff
up, -woolen interests to keep the wool
tariff up and other Interests from like
He Insisted there waa a difference be
tween a railroad company contributing
and a man owning heavily of railroad
stock contributing. He insisted that big
business men and financiers contributed
from mixed motives. He thought the
Sherman law so vague In 1301 that no
body contributed to escapo. prosecution
