The controversy surrounding an al?
leged demand upon J. P. Morgan for
an additional contribution to the
Kooseveit campaign fund in 194 was
partially cleared up to-day by Charles
J?dward Russell. Socialist candidate for
Governor of New York and Judson C.
.AVelliver, a Washington newspaper
man.
Mr. Russell had been Quoted as say?
ing Wayne McVeagu. Attorney-General
under Cleveland, was in Mr. Morgan's
office when the latter was called to
the telephone and was asked for the
contribution. Mr. Russell told the
committee, under pressure, that Mr.
Welllver. then a magazine contributor,
toad been his Informant. Mr. Welllver,
Bitting at the reporters' table, asked
permission to testify.
Ho said Mr. MacVeagh told him In
1910 that Mr. Morgan had been called
to the telephone in October, 1904, as
stated, but that It was ?. H. Harriman
who asked for the contribution. Mr.
Welllver testified that Mr. MacVeagh
told him that Mr. Morgan said that
Mr. Harriman was asking for more
campaign money aa the result of bis
visit to President Roosevelt
"What do you suppose that man inj
the White House wants?" Mr. Mor-1
gan was quoted as saying to Mr. Mac?
Veagh. "It seems that Harriman has I
gone off down there to Washington ]
and dined with him and now ho comes i
Iback and says that the President
wants him to raise more campaign
funds. He has given 150.000 and now
he wants me to give $50.000."
Mr. MacVeagh. according to the wit?
ness, told him that Mr. Morgan wrote
a check for $50.000 which he sent to;
Mr. Harriman* office. Mr. Morgan
testified last week that he knew of
no such contribution
Claries R. Crane said that he con?
tributed both to Senator La Follette
and Governor Wilson before the nomi?
nating conventions, because "both were
progressiv? candidates."
"I Just wanted one progressive to
succeed" be said.
-I did not care which it was." He I
denied having told Treasurer Hooker,
of the Progressive party, that he had

10 HASTEN WORK
Street Car Company Secures
Outside Contractor So as to
Expedite Paving.
What Is hoped to be an amicable
arrangement lor expeditlrrg the de
iayed paving contract* ot the city on
certain streets, partly occupied by car!
?racks, was reamed at a conference
of the tiuocommitte? on Streets. City
engineer Boiling and representatives
of the Virginia ltailway and Power
Company yesterday afternoon. Captain
A. B. Guigon. general attorney for
the Virginia Railway and Power Com- '
pany, stated that m response to th*
suggestion or request of the subconi
IBi 11SS, his company had secured an
offer to do the track reconstructionj
on Robinson Street from Broad to
Main, from,a reliable contracting firm..
which had promised to press it with ml
reasonable haste. '
'ihe company's new contractor was
ready to proceed next Monday morn?
ing, after tue rush of lair week, but
desired to put the committee on notice
that the work, at a time when large
tedious of track on both .bast and
M est Broad Street were being re?
newed, w ould necessarily result in seri?
ous delays in schedules and inconveni
tme to the public. The committee and
the City Engineer wer? of opinion that
some delay would be inevitable. It is
considered necessary, the contract for
the paving has already been awarded,
and the contractor has purchased the
material, borne of the cars wld be
routed over Harrison Street temporari?
ly.
Wfll Hurry Broad Street.
Mr. Boiling stated that he had ar?
ranged with X- Norman Jones, Jr..
c.iiet engineer of the Virginia Kail
way and Power Company, for continu?
ous work on Cast Broad Street in ,
advance of the pavers. Mr. Jon.-s said
his company was ready to proceed at
once, and only awaited permission to
open a new section as soon as tne
portion now opened has b -en paved
and again put into use.
Paving began yesterday with a
sma>l force on Main Street west of |
Seventh, but the contractor hasn't
sufficient blocks to finish the work, j
'h n questioned about the delay, Mr.
Boiling said the Committee on Streets
knew of the time speci?ed when it <
ordered him to award the contract to
the low .-st bidder.
Hag Only Five Men at Work.
J. B. Chewning. contractor for
sewer work on Bacon's Quarter
Branch, admitted that he was far be
bind time and that most of the sum
tner he had only four or five m?n em- j
ployed on a $5.000 contract. Lately I
the force haa been Increased. Mr. j
Boiling notified him that If better :
spej.i was not shown he would recom- i
mend to the Street Committee on
Qctober 1? that the contract txt re?
voked.
