NO BRIBERY IX SOUTH
McKinley and Ormsby McHar-a:. tbe
latter contest manager for Colonel
Roosevelt in the primary fight, held the
i witness stand throus-hout the after
noon. McHarg accounted for the ex
penditure of $25,000 to $30,000 by the
Roosevelt committee in the southern
<=tates where contests were brought.
He denied that any money had been
sport to influence delegates or that he
knew of the use of any money In this
way either before or at the Chicago
con veil tion.
McKinley admitted that the Taft
campaign committee had paid the ex
penses of delegates to the Chicago con
vention, a procedure that both he and
McHarg said had been a "long standing
custom." Asked how many delegates
had thus been provided for, he said he
thought expenses had been paid "wher

his own way."

of money at the Chicago convention to

McKinley said, smiling. "I have kept

contraband in San Francisco bay. prob
ably in the estuary at Oakland. The
Neptune crept out under cover of fog.
The Samson II was discovered, but es
caped after a hot chase.
The Neptune proceeded to Drakes
bay, where Captain Oosterhuis changed
its name and started southward when
discovered by the weather bureau sta
tion keeper at Point Reyes. The
weather man telephoned down to Act
ing Collector of the Port Charles
Stevens, who immediately dispatched
the revenue tug Golden Gate to in

THREE SLOOP'S SIGHTED
Under command of Captain >11. Ulke,
the Golden Gate proceeded north at
2:30 o'clock. About an hour and a half
later, six miles off shore and about six
miles south of Duxburry reef. Captain
Ulke sighted three fishing sloops. He
was about to pass them when he no
ticed that the inshore craft was lower

two were reefed. This looked sus
picious, and he hove to. It developed
that the sail reefing craft was the
Alert, which had joined the fishers to
The Alert answered the Golden
Gate's hall and cam% alongside. Cap
tain Oosterhuis informed Captain Ulke
that he was fishing, but a search of
the craft revealed that there was only
one fishing line and a box of hooks
aboard, so Captain Ulke took the Alert
in tow and proceeded to San Francisco.
Charles Stevens and a squad of cus
toms men met the Alert when It was
brought in shortly after 6 o'clock last
night. It was discovered that there
was a good supply of stores aboard.
Oosterhuis was recognised by Look
out Ernest Raynaud of the Chamber
of Commerce, who had known him
when he was shipping out of the har
bor several years ago as mate of a
Oosterhuis denied that he was in
the smuggling business.
His story follows:

MOST IMPORTANT CAPTURE
Acting Collector of the Port Stevens
said that the capture was the most
important made this year in smuggling
"We've got the kingpin of the gang,"
said Stevens. "We have been looking
for Oosterhuis for a long time. There
is no doubt that- the Neptune landed
a bi*r party of Chinese somewhere on
the bay Sunday night."
Frank H. Ainsworth, chief Inspector
of the immigration service for this dis
trict, took the men into custody at the
barge office. He said that he had
known both at San Diego and the pris
oners admitted that they knew him.
Ainsworth declared that tha govern
ment men bad been looking for Oos
terhuis and that they had a great deal
of incriminating correspondence.
Nothing was heard of the Samson TI
yesterday. Government Inspectors are
on guard at every port of entry on the
coast, and the capture of that smug
gling craft is only a matter of a few
days**. The owners of the Samson II
are known to the immigration people,
and there is little chance of their es
caping. It is believed that the Sam
son II is making for Santa Rosa island,
one of the centers of smuggling activ
The Samson II belongs at San Pedro,
and it is said to be owned by J.

Lieutenant Governor Says He
Will Consider Matter on
Lieutenant Governor A. J. Wallace,
acting governor during the absence of
Hiram W. Johnson from the state, was
unprepared yesterday to say whether he
would grant the request of the regular
republican state central committee for
a special session of the legislature so
that provision could be made for the in
clusion of Taft electors in the ballot
"I have not received any formal re
quest for an extraordinary session,"
said Wallace last night. "I was at the
apple festival in Watsonville Monday
and attended the meeting of the bOard
of regents of the university today and
so have not been in my office in Sacra

"I received a telegram from the gov

made of any request for an extra ses

quest has reached the office.
"If a forma) request is made of me
for the calling of a special session I
shall consider it very seriously and
act as I think best in the premises."
Gustavo Brenner, chairman of the
republican state central committee, said
last night that he sent a communica
tion to Wallace Sunday in which he
embodied the resolutions adopted by
the state central committee last Satur
day calling for an extra session of the
legislature to amend the laws so that
candidates for presidential electors
loyal to Taft could be placed on the
Lieutenant Governor Wallace should
find Brenner's message as soon as he
reaches* his office in Sacramento today
and he will then be called upon to de
