New Fields Opened in Senate
Hearing of Ford's Contest.
Washington, June 10.-New fields
.were opened today in the senate con
sideration of Henry Ford's contest
for the seat of Senator Newberry of
Michigan, when at the instance of
Ford counsel, subpeonas were issued
for William C. Duranlt, former presi
dent of the general Motors Company;
Andrew Green, Jr., president of the
Solvy Process Company, and Lyman
D. Smith, New York's stock broker.
None of the men were drawn into the
criminal prosecutions which preced
ed the contest, but will be asked Mon
day to tell of any connection they
may have had with the Newberry
?campaign financing in 191.
Today's scission was marked by a
clash between Alfred and Henry
Lucking, attorneys for Ford, and
Chairman Spencer and some of the
senatorial committee members, and
by the withdrawal of Paul H. King,
"Newberry campaign manager, from
the witness stand when he evinced
symptoms of nervous collapse during
examination concerning expenditures
under his control. Charles A. Floyd,
secretary of the Newberry campaign
committee, took his place, and the
Luckings father and son, armed with
6tacks of cancelled checks, said to
number 1800, pressed him sharply.
These checks, though ranging in
amounts up to $17,500, marked
"paid" by the banks, and said to have
heen given to many individuals in
cluding Floyd, the witness explained
as "reconcilement checks." No money
actually passed upon them, he insist
ed, but they evidenced money pre
viously paid out, and their total
of $160,000, he said, constitut?d in
the Newberry primary election cam
, Chairman Spencer interrupted the
examination, and, though Alfred
Lucking protested vehemently, held
to his decision that "this is enough
about these checks." Senator Pome
renne democrat, Ohio, however, left
the committee room in some heat af
ter failing to force an adjournment
Floyd conceded total of expendi
turs in the primary campaign for
Senator Newberry was $176,000.
Through King, the campaign man
ager, Mr. Lucking earlier in the day
put in the record of discreption of
the Newberry campaign, striving to
show Senator Newberry's familiarity
with the details and financing.
King, however, said he took orders
from his principal, he said, but went
ahead -alone on campaign projects
.without even reporting by mail.

Too Many Government
Not many years ago the citizens of

?ouncement that the expenses of the
federal Government for one year
.eached the billion dollar mark. The
Congress which appropriated what
vas then considered ^ vast sum of
noney was called the billion dollar

iither lost their seats or had a painful
lime explaining this extravagance to
The appropriations of the present
Congress plus overdrafts on the pub
ic treasury amount to $5,500,000,
)00, or the sum of $50.38 for every
nan, woman and child in continental
Jnited States. Much of this ,of course
nay be rightly charged to the recent
var, but a great deal of it may also

An anecdote of Slr Henry M. Stanley
that well illustrates the famous ex
plorer's mental unrest is related by
Mr. W. W. Ellsworth, in "A Golden Age
"We entertained the Stanleys at an
afternoon reception," says Mr. Ells
worth. "It was in the old clubhouse at
Lafayette place, New York. I was on
the committee, and I wanted Mr. Stan
ley-he was not knighted then-to
stand in a certain place near the cen
ter of the room, where he could receive
the people. But he would not stay,
there; he insisted on backing up
against the wall.
"Finally I appealed to Mrs. Stanley:
'Why will not your husband stand
where I put him?' 'Simply,* she said,
'because he is afraid some one will
stick him in the back with a spear. ..
"The habit, acquired in Africa,;of
protecting himself by standing with
his back against a wall was too' much
for Stanley even In the safety of a New
York afternoon reception."
