PUBLICITY FOR
CAMPAIGN FUND
Inquiry as It Amounts
Expanded.
Bills to Bring Out These
Points Explained in
Committee.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 17.-Tho House
Committee on Elections of President, VI. -President
and Representatives In Con
gress gave a hearing today on bills Intro
duced by Representative Bourk.- Cockran
of New York One provides for publlcltv
of contributions to campaign funds In
Presidential elections ami tne other for
the appointment of a special commission
to inquire into and ascertain the amoui ts
of mdnay expended by both political pnr
tles at all Presidential elections fnun 'sl
U 1904.
Mr Cockran sul.l this bill for a com
mission was not for the purpose of . z
posure, hut to secure facts which frould
he of value In framing remcdJ&J legisla
tion. Mr. Cbckran paid wo have neard
..f Stupendous funds In 18M and Wl. and
arlded that corruption may have begun in
1S92.
Mr. Cockran did not object to contribu
tions. He thought a man had a.s much
right to put up his money an his views,
and said that all could not speak or write.
'Let him write his name to a check,"
said Mr. Cockran. "If that Is tho only way
In which he can show his enthusiasm "
He said he did not care If Mr. Rocke
feller put up two miiii.-n or Mi Morgan
1 one million, but ho .lid want the fact
known, nnd objected to contributions se
cretly made. A party, he said, should be
Judged by those who contribute funds.
' Mr. Cockran advanced the argument
thnt a great share of the expense of
campaigns should be thrown on ti -eminent,
lie said public building! could
be assigned as headquarters foi the two
leading parties, and that Government
clerk might be assigned to them. Ho
j said he could eee no reason whv the Gov
ernment I'Tlntlng office should not bo
mad.- available to tin- parties under rea
sonable restrictions, for the printing of
documents, and said that by extending
the franking privilege the . ..st .if . In U
latlng documents w.ail.l be largely met.
He thought the railroads might carry the
speakers. By this plan a gr. nt burden of
expense would be lifted from the ioii-
tlcal parties, as these were the bin Items.
Kenljlng to .'halrman Gaines of Weal
Virginia. Mr Cockran said it would be
necessary to limit tho privileges t two
parties, otherwise the plan would fail.
speaking of the franking privilege, Mr
Cockran suld he had circulated 10,000
copies of a speech of his own. The party
rejected It, he said, because It was too
demoi ratlc for Democratic digestion.

Supreme court. He said county chairmen

MaJ Richard W. Young was the prin
cipal witness of the day He denied

inspired; that It was the result of a senti
ment, and that It was a sentiment since.
As to the revelation regarding polygamy

MORMONS DIVIDE I
WITH GENTILES I
General Understanding I
to That Meet. I
Judge McCarty Says So,
and, of Course, He Ought B
to Know. K
Richard W. Young Thinks Manifesto iHn
Inspired and That Connolly Ex- Hll
pressed Mormon Sentiment. Bbi
WASHINGTON, Jan. 17 When th
Smoot investigation opened today
Judge W. M. McCarty of the Supreme
court of Utah, who was on the stand
yesterday, was recalled by Chairman
Burrows and examined concerning the
division of offices between Mormons
and Gentiles.
He said there was no agreement, hut
that it Is understood that the canal
dates on the tickets shall be about
evenly divided. He repeated the state
ment made jesterday that there is an
understanding that one United States
Senator shall be a Gentile and the other
a Mormon.
Richard W. Young of Salt Lake, a
graduate of West Point and also of the
law department of Columbia university,
was sworn.
While serving In the Philippines he
was president of the criminal branch
of the Supreme court of the Islands. He
returned to Salt Lake City In PJOl and
Is now president of one of the four
Mormon stakes of Salt Lake City.
Mr. Young Is a monogamist and says
the sentiment of Mormons Is decidedly
hostile ,to polygamy. He said there Is
no teaching of polygamy and has been
none since the manifesto was Issued.
Political ' Whisperings.''
In relation to "whisperings" In poll
tics, he said he knew of no Instance
where the "whisperings" had been
traced to any Mormon authorities He
thought there may have been somo un
derllngs who attempted to create th.
Impression that the church wanted
some particular candidate elected, but
that when these cases were traced
down the accused always denied that
they had been authorized to take such
action.
So far a9 he was concerned personal
ly. he said, no person had over sought LM
to Influence his vote.
On cross-examination Mr. Young said BBJ
he believed that the manifesto was In- HHJ
spired nnd that while there are people HBl
In tho church who have not accepted the HBJ
doctrines of revelations, the overwhelm
Ing majority believed thnt the revelation
In relation to celestial marriage was In- HB
spired. '
"In view of tho persistent rumors that BHj
an apostle of the church has taker, two HB
plural wives since the manifesto, do on HB
not think that authorities of tho church HB
should procure the attendance of that HBJ
man us a witness In this hearing?" asked JjSJ
Attornev Taj ler.
"I dorA know that they could procure BflJ
his attendance," replied Mr. Ynunp. HJ
As to Traitors. BA
Mr Taylor called attention to a dispatch
from Eureka. Utah, to the effect that at HB
a meeting Sunday night Bishop Danl.-i HB
Connolly announced those who had be- BhJ
tray., endowment oaths at VYashineton
were traitors and said he "had known HB
traicrs to be shot." The dispatch said HB
also that when taken to task for the vlo-
lence of his language the bishop said that HB
ho was indignant at tho witnesses who HH
had violated their oaths, but that If he HB
had known there was a reporter present
he would have been moro guarded.
Mr. Young did not approve the reference
to the shooting of traitors, but said hfi HB
thought that Otherwise the bishop had HBJ
expressed tho sentiment of the Mormon HBJ
people toward those who had testllied In HB
tho Smoot Investigation cncernlnc the HBJ
endowment house ceremonies. He id HBJ
Mnrmiiim abhorred traitors and said a HBJ
man who would violate his oath before a HBJ
Justice of Peace would violate any oath HBJ
of the church He could make no dlstlnc- HBJ
I
In answer to questions by Chairman HBJ
Furrows, Mr. Young snld that until two HBJ
years after Its Issuance the manifesto w.xa HBJ
not construed in lie directed against th HBJ
practice of polygamy, but only against HBJ
DSW plur.il marriages. He SHld that If it HB
were not for the law agalnxt polygamy. HB
he should b.-iie-..' thn principle to be
right. Some of the bishops under Mr. HBJ
Young are polygamlsts. and he said he HBJ
had tak. n no steps to dissuade them from. HB
continuing the practice HHJ
Mr. Young, answering questions by the HHJ
chalrmnn. said he felt obliged not to re-
veal the nature of the endowment cere- HHJ
monies, but In that i oi ni ctlon old he re- 1H
netted the Inability to answer, because bo H
believed the worst mil .f Inference mlghfc'
be drawn from thca.. refusals,
Conference Could Not.
Mr. Young was on the stand at the
afternoon session nnd Mr. Tayler asked:
"Is It a fact that the llrst presidency HHl
or th apostles must be sustained at the HHl
semi-annual conference just the same as H
they arc sustained whan originally HHl
elected "
The witness thought that the confer- HHl
enco could not, at least would not. va- HHl
onto a position unless charges were llled HHl
and the oftlclul tried prior to the confer- HHl
Attorney W'prthlngton. for Senator
Smoot, and Senators Burrows nnd Mc- HB
Comas engaged In an argument as to the HHl
proprletr f ,i question ns to whether the HHl
endowment house ceremony contains any- HHJ
thing hostile to this Government when
tho witness declines to is-iv.- the wording HHJ
of the oath taken by Mormons who go HHJ
through the ceremony. HHJ
The members of the committee took the H)HJ
position that if partial answers were given HHl
the inqulrv should extend to the on- HjHJ
tire subject. Mr Worthlngtou likened HHl
the situation to an Inquiry Into Masonry
Or other Secret organizations, and said HHl
that the wltnOSl should bo pormltted to
sny that ho had taken no obligation hos-
tile to the Government, and th. n declined HHl
to reveal a secret oath which he Is obliged HHl
to divulge.
After the argument Mr Worthlngton "MVJ
asked . . HHsi
Is there anything in the oath that re-
lates to your Government'.'" HHl
"J don't know that 1 would understand
