Investigation of campaign contri

election to Tacoma this morning
the key was discovered that prom

make an open book of the whole
controversy as to who gave the
money and why.
Acting on a telegram from Sen
ator Platt, Senator Wesley Jones
held an investigation in federal
court room at 10 o'clock today
and examined Elmer Dover, Pa
cific Coast representative of the
Byylsby company, the largest pub
lic service gas company in the
country. Mr. Dover was secre

later secretary of the national re
publican committee for about ID
years. He resigned from the sec
retaryship of the advisory com

time to the gas business.
"Did you solicit or secure any
contributions to the campaign
fund, of 1904?" asked Senator
"The only large one I person

by the family of Senator Hanna,"
He declared as secretary it was
not his duty to secure contribu

The lists are in a lnrge box I
have stored m Chicago, which
contains all the records I kept."
Senator Jones wanted to know
if the records could be secured
and Dover said he was willing to
turn them over to the committee
and if it wishes Dover will make
a trip to Chicago, unlock the box
and bring the missing documents
to the light of day.
