At least $67,000 was received since early spring- by David Harvey,, promoter of the Pershing victory reception, which was canceled after his arrest last Monday. This is one of the interest ing: developments in District Attor ney Swann's investigation into his activities. - Of this amount, $35,000 was ad vanced by Mrs. Henry F. Dimock for expenses in connection with the George Washington Memorial Asso ciation, and $32,000 was obtained from the Armenian relief committee for ex ploiting a motion picture. Mrs. Dimock, of Washington. D. C visited the district attorney's office and went Into details of her transac tion with Harvey. Information as to the Armenian relief committee was supplied by.

It was announced that the district attorney's office had learned that fif teen bad checks had been issued by Harvey in the last few months. Tells of Giving Money. Mrs. Dimock spent more than an hour at the district attorney's office. She was accompanied by her lawyer, Francis M. Scott. After the hearing Mr. Swann said: "Mrs. Dimock told us that she had turned over to Harvey $35,000 of her own money to start the cam paign for the 110,000,000 to bifild the George Washington Memorial In Washington. This was after she had given Harvey a contract whereby he was to receive 5 per cent of all the money raised by subscription for the fund. In other words, under that contract he would have received 1500.000. "It appears that on February 15, 1911, the executive committee of the association passed a resolution giv ing Mrs. Dimock a sum not to ex ceed 5 per cent of -the total amount raised. She in turn arranged to give the commission to Harvey for his "We have not found that Harvey handled any of the funds of the I George Washington Memorial Asso ciation. Whether any money actually passed through his hands is yet to be determined. We have been told that he did receive one check for $1,000, but this has yet to be investigated." No Satisfactory Accounting. he was identified with Carl Deiner. Investigation Into the latter man's activities by District Attorney Kllroe. resulted in a request to Lord ana Lady Aberdeen and others to stop making collections. In the effort to examine Harvey on this subject, Mr. Kilroe asked yesterday that he be aent over from the Tombs. Harvey, however, refused to appear without his lawyer. He will be arraigned before Judge Rosalsky in general sessions this morning. His attorney, Isldor "Wa survogel. announced last night that he would seek to have him discharged on the groupd that his arrest was Il legal. He contends that Harvey can not be held for violation of parole, because the offense he committed has been outlawed. Mr. Talley Insists Harvey was a fugitive from justice. . WOOD SILENT ON QUITTING ARMY i Idea of General as Next G. 0. P. Presidential Candi date Gathers Strength. NEW YORK, Sept. 12. Maj. Gen. Leonard Wood today refused to dis cuss persistent reports that he would r!nm his army office within a few Assistant District Attorney Talley, j days to become an active candidate for the Republican Presidential nomi nation. The report was first spread by politicians who talked to General Wood when he reached New York yesterday. General Wood feels, they said, mat in telling of the Armenian commit tee's transactions with Harvey, said: "Our information comes from Henry L. Rupert. He says the Ar menians paid Harvey $32,000 on an agreement whereby he was to get 10 per cent or the gross receipts of a;lt WOuld be almost disloyal for him to moving picture. The money was ad- j remain in the army and at the same vanced to him for expenses, and al-!fim -triv ta succeed President Wil- though they have made repeated de mands for an accounting they have never been able to get a satisfactory report as to how the money was ex pended. "We will also continue our investi gation into the story that he re- ceived $50,000 from the Elks for two pictures, and will also look into his activities with the Federal Board of Vocational Training." The $35,000 which Mrs. Dimock ad vanced to Harvey may not be lost by her after all. When District Attorney Swann suggested to her that she might reimburse herself for this money out of her share of the 5 per cent of the association funds she told j ported. cun sne expecicu io so protect nersen against loss if necessary. Fosslbly In War Charities. The possibility that Harvey had some connection with war charities in May, 1018, is another point into which the District Attorney's office is looking. There is a suspicion that son, his commander-in-chief. A com mittee Is reported being, organized bv "National Committeeman, John T.' King, of Connecticut, to boom his: candidacy and some of Colonel Roose velt's former lieutenants are Investi gating the possibilities of Wood's success throughout the country. These emissaries, it is said, have reported that Governor Lowden, of Illinois, who is also mentioned as a candidate, is willing to accept- the Vice Presidency should Wood be nomr inated. Governor Goodrich, of In diana, close friend of Chairman Hays of the Republican national commit-. tee, is similarly disposed. It Is ro- GIRIi WOULD BE BOSTON COPPESS BOSTON, Sept. 12.

This wa1nust six m,ies across from the main line of the Union Pacific, and I went to the agent and asked a special service; if they could furnish me an engine to run those cattle up to North Platte and then come right back up to within six miles of the main line. "The agent took it up with the superintendent and after hearing front the superintendent he said the government rules were such that they coqld, not furnish an engine for less than 25 cars. Thfc Union Pacific used 1o send' me an engine for 8 or 10 cars. Then I said 'if they will let me unload the cattle at Ogallala I will wire my men to come there and drive them across. Well, after doing that, he said : 'No, we used to do that, but governoaaaf regulations are in force and you have got to drive your fat cattle back to: where you unload your stockers.
