Referring to tho testimony given, yesterday by Ben jamin B. Odell before the Senate com mittee investigating campaign contri butions. Colonel Roosevelt said, last night that the relation of the late E. H. Harrlman to the national Republican campaign fund in 1804 had bcon defi nitely settled byhlm in. the letters pub lished six years ago. Ho declared that no question could be raised by any hon est man, and that any attempt to do so was to deal in falsehoods. Mr. Odell's testimony was, he said, purely hearsay, and not to be consid ered evidence against his own state ment and George R. Sheldon's letter. As was pointed out in that statement, the colonel continued, he had never di rectly nor indirectly asked Mr. Harrl man for a dollar, but,, on the contrary, Mr. Harrlman had asked that money be given to him and to Odell. ., When former Governor Odell's tesTP" mony was called to the colonel's atten tion at the conclusion of tho Progres sive conference last evening, lie de clined at first to reopen the contro versy. Dictates Statement. After a moment's reflection he dic tated this statement: "I have not a thing to add to what was contained in my statement con taining tho letters published at that time. These letters speak for thorn selves. Mr. 8heldon's testimony abso lutely bears them out. I nover direct ly nor Indirectly . asked Mr. Harrlman for a dollar, and he never spoke to me about giving a dollar to the national campaign fund. On tho contrary, he asked me to help htm get for Odell and the State campaign fund some large Bums of money from the national campaign committee on the ground that my election was safe anyhow; that It was essential to help Odell carry the State ticket. "Let me repeat that every fact was Bet forth In full and In detail by me six years ago, while Mr. Harrlman was nllvR. Thin statement contained my letter written at the time to Mr. Harrl- I Held for Removing Gem From Bracelet Accused of tfe theft of a diamond from a braceletl which he found on the street, John Snead, colored, of 1125 Fourth street northwest, has been ar rested by Detective Barbee, of the Sec ond precinct, on a charge of petit lar ceny. On the evening of July 2$ Miss Mary Horn, of 1108 Fifth street northwest, lost a handsome gold bracelet set with soveral diamonds. Snead found tho bracelet and advertised in the papers for the owner. Miss Horn answered the advertisement, claimed the brace let, but discovered after she got It home that one of tho diamonds was missing. Snead asserted the stone was missing when he found the bracelet, but the police were not satisfied with his ex planation, and he was taken In custody on a charge of petit larceny. Hearing of the t-nso has been set for the latter part of the month. All Bids Too High for The Gunboat Monocacy Secretary of the Navy Meyer has de cided to refuse the bid of the Seattle Construction and Dry Dock Company for the construction of tho little gun boat Monocacy, because Its offer Is still several thousand dollars In excess of the highest navy yard bid. The vessel will be built by the Maro Island navy yard at a cost of $141,000. Congress appropriated $215,000 for this purpose, but part of the appropriation will have to be expended for shipping the vessel In knocked-down form to China and re-erectlng It there. Hardware Merchant Goes Into Bankruptcy Maurice Shapplrlo, proprietor of a hardware and sporting goods business at 923 Eighth street southeast, today filed a petition In voluntary bankruptcy In tho District Supreme Court. He list ed his .liabilities at $2,217.64 and his as sets at $1,505. Attorneys Mark Stearman and Harry H. Hollander appear for the petitioner. Home-Made Beauty Aid's (By Ella Ellis In Tho Arch.) "If you dissolve an original package of mayatone In a half pint witch hazel you havo a true complexion beautlfler that will make your skin smooth, clear, satiny, and free from blemish. Gently massage the face, neck, and arms with this simple lotion and you will be de lighted with the improvement. It Is better than face powder. "Put four ounces of powdered orris root in a fruit jar, add an original pack age of therox, shake together, and you have a perfect dry shampoo powder. Sift a teaspoonful on the head, brush through the hair, and It removes dust, excess oil, and dandruff. Therox makes the hair grow long and luxuriantly, and keeps it soft, fluffy, and lustrous. "To make a hair remover, mix pow dered dclatone and water In sufficient quantities to form a paste. Cover the hairs on face or forearms with the paste, allow to remain two minutes, then wash the skin and the hairs wlli be gone. This method Is sure, safe, and speedy.

HE- C- QK uucEtrn - om is oo to wimu man, and neither Mr.' Harrlman nor Mr. Odell ever attempted to answer this communication of .mine, and no human being can attempt to refute any state Jnent I therein made without brand ing hjmsrlf an dlshqneBt and untruthful. "'Mr. Sheldon's statement,-which 'he, of his own accord volunteered to make, corroborated everything that I said. I was glad to have It. published,' but the letters that I gave needed no corrobor ation." Conference a Long One. The big cAmpalgn conference of the National Progressive leaders was com pleted late last evening. None of Its participants, Including, besides Colonel Roosevelt, Senator Joseph M. Dixon, Oeorge W. Perkins, O. K. Davis, and Medlll McCormlck, had1 anything to say for publication at Its conclusion, except to Indicate tho general character, of their deliberations. It Is understood that after some na tional organization plans left over from Tuesday night were cleared up the prob lem of the colonel's Itinerary ' for his sweeping campaign trip next month was tackled with such success that, while not yet ready for publication, It has, on the authority of Senator Dixon, been snopca on an save the finishing touches. Sets Hard Task For Colonel. In order to cover the thirty-odd States which the colonel hopes to enter In the one tour, a very close schedule Is de manded. In somo States It Is likely that not more than one or two stops will be made. So far as possible, State fairs and Stato conventions will be utilized to get the greatest results In 'the least time. The former President Is fullv alive to the hardships of so rapid and extensive a trio, Imuch of which will be, negotiated in, special trains, He remarked yesterday that he had never supposed that It would be necessary for him to undertake again such a task. Senator Dixon was Inclined to make much of a report he had Just received of tho election of James Wlckersham, the Progressive candidate for Congres sional Dclegato from Alaska. "This Is a significant Progressive vic tory." said the Senator. "The first Con gressman to be chosen."
