Koosevelt 1904 campaign fund. He tes
tl.'.d 'Wore the Senato committee to
cUy that $50,000 of this amount was part
cf the $240,000 fund dumped by the late

en the eve of the election, nnd which

Mr. Morgan made the statement that
alter having contributed $100,000 he had
lcrn solicited to give not only this ad
ditional $50,000 but the entire $240,000,
which later was turned over to the
National Committee by Mr. Harrlman,
"Thcie was no limit to the amount
they would take," observed the banker
with a smile.
Mr. Morgan's testimony tended lo
confirm E. II. llarrimnn's version of the
$-10,000 gift. Mr. Harrlman always con
tended that Mr. Hoosevelt Importuned (
him to rti"e this money to save the
clay for the national ticket In New York
Mate and that the $240,000 was paid to
the late Cornelius N. Bliss as treasurer
of the National Committee. In this ac
count of the transaction Mr. Harrlman
lias been backed up by B. B. Odell, who
was Republican State chairman In 1901.

tho nvlntor who originated tho "dip of
death" as a spectacular aeroplane trick,
was killed thin afternoon when making
an exhibition flight before 5,000 spectators
at the lntcrstato Fair.

Curtiss machine wob tho llrst cause of the

Through glasses Walsh could tie seen
frantically struggling to right the biplane,
which had now tipped almost on its end.
The wind struck tho twisted wings of his
mnchino nnd blew it half n mile from tho
fair grounds before it finally crashed
into a tree and then to the ground.
The nviator was obscured in the tangled
folds of tho big filer, but the fair manage
ment had already found threo doctors in
tho crowd nnd was hurrying them in an
automobile toward where Walsh's machine
was seen floundering. When they reached
tho place where tho biplane fell they
found that Walsh's neck wns dislocated
and manv bones broken. The doctors
saw that ho was still alive and made
hurried efforts to release him from the
tangle of wires and twisted machinery.
Hefore lie could be placed in an ambulance
ho was dead.
"The dip of death," which cost Wnlsh
his life, consisted of taking tils machine
high in the uir, pointing its noso down
ward and descending at a rapid rate,
then circling up again. His previottB
exhibition of the font had met with hearty
npplauso from tho spectators.
His last flight was undertaken In the
faco of a fairly brisk breezo which swept
over the big enclosure at the grounds.
It was announced that .he wind wai
strong for aerial work, but thnt Walsh
would attempt n flight. His ascent was
accomplished without incident and after
rising to a height of about I.BOO feet bo
made n long downward glide which
brought him directly over the field in
front of tho grand stand.
Then ho began the circular manoeuvres,

Twenty-two amateur fishermen and a

them had their coats off and their shoes

"I hereby particularly warn you
against Probate Judges nnd attorneys
nt law, and sincerely trust you will not
have occasion to consult or employ the

personal experience In dealings, social
and otherwise, with lawyers has been
extensive, nnd careful observance In
other Instances has convinced me that
they are all dangerous crooks, only dis
guised and expressly educated and
trained to obtain one's confidence In
order thnt they may defraud nnd rob
with impunity,"
Mr, Bartlett left an estate of $50,000,
which went In shares to the executrix,

made out the necessary papers In con
nection with tho probate proceedings
