Two men who took the prisoner away

hutions from the Stat of Washington
were the flrat ever received from there
hy the Republican national committee.
Not a single contribution of more than
$1,0.10 has come from New Tork, but Mr,
Upham was not familiar with the identity
of the contributors,
Senator New of Indiana, head of the
speakers' bureau of the Republican na
tlonal committee, was called to testify
as to the salar!r paid campaign speak
ers. He said he had planned to pay
some few speakers who could not afford
to devote time from their regular work
to campaigning. He promised to turn
over to the committee all his corre
spondence with such men.
WOULD ROOT FOR EITHER PARTY
Senator Edge, Republican, of New Jer
sey asked Mr. New if there were any
cases of speakers seeking work from
both major parties. The witness pro
duced correflpondoncs with Prof. John O.
Hall, formerly of Wllllamett- University,
Salem. Ore., which, he said, furnished
an example of that practice.
The correspondence showed that Pro.
feasor Hall was recommended to Senntor
New by Congressman Nelson of Minn,
sota as a speaker fitted to address
Scandinavian audiences. Senator New
wrote ProfeMor Hall asking the terms
on which his Assistance could be obtained.
Replying from Washington. D. C
where he was employed by the Shipping
Board, Professor Hall said his "Demo
cratlc friends" had offered him 17,500 and
expenses and were wllllnr to glv him
116,000 for campaign work on behalf of
tha Democratic ticket.
"A good appointment tr th cam
paign nf non-polltlcal character," was
also mentioned at part of th offer,
Professor Hall wrot, however, that he
preferred to work for the Republicans
as he believed In their principles and
admired their candidate and had been a
Republican up to flfht ear ago, He
offered his services lo Senator Nw on
the same terms,
