Archbold today before the senate In vest igu ting committee. He reiterated his declaration that he knew nothing of u contribution by Mr. Archbold or the Standard Oil Company to the republican cam paign of 1904; declared he did not "for one moment believe that Mr. Archbold's testimony Is truthful;" charged Mr. Archbold with a "wick ed assault on n dead man;" ndded that during many culls which Mr. Archbold made upon him while he was president to urge him not to prosecute the Standard Oil Company, Mr. Archbold never referred to any contribution to his campaign fund.j and concluded with the suggestion that the senate committee shoiilc; make Mr. ArulLuli and Senator Pen rose testify at once concerning their relations while Mr. Penrose was a member of the industrial commis sion. In his last word Colonel Roosevelt thanked both Messrs. Archbold and Penrose for making it clear be yond possibility of doubt that I am the man the Petirnscs ami Archboids of the country most dread In public life." Colonel HooRevelt's statement fol lows; , i "In the first place I wish to call attention to the fact that even if Mr. Archlinld's statements are true, they uiniituit only to saying, so far as I am concerned, that Mr. liliss told him that 1 had knowledge of and approv ed a reoucst for $100,0(10 Horn the Standard Oil Company, which was grunted, and a further recpiest for tlMl.tiufl, which was not granted. This is a pure hearsay statement and. even if made In good faith, would be utterly valueless. "Not only did I never know any thing of such a request being made, but my published letters and tele grams show that when the rumnr that there had been a contribution, reach ed ine, I acted at once, reiterating my demand again and again that the money should be immediately return ed If it bad been given, and being as sailed by Mr, Cortilyou that the money had not been received and wntiUl not be received. tVcvcr Heard of Charge. j ' I wished to reiterate that until Mr. Penrose made his speech, I never had j heard it suggested that Mr. Archbold! had contributed to the campaign or been the means through which any contribution hud been made. "lint I do not for one moment be lieve that Mr. Archbold's testimony is huthful. He apparently possesses such ii moral standard that he does not understand the Infamous accusation he is making against Mr. liliss. Mr. Ribs is now dead, lint during the seven years that elapsed before Mr. liliss' death, after Mr. Archbold elaiins he made the contribution in 'Piestion, Mr. Archbold never brought "P any statement of this kind. "He now says that Mr. liliss warned blm that he was making a serious niistu1;e in not contributing the extra amount of money, and that later on when the administration began to deal with the Standard ll people, Mr. liliss said it would have been dif ferent if thev had done as thev asked tiletll. Wicked Atsiiull on lili-. "This is an assertion that Mr. I'.llss was deliberately trying to blackmail 'he Standard oil Company into con-, "Uniting by scarcely veiled threats as to what would happen if they did not that Mr. liliss ever made any such remarks to ,ir. Archbold as Mr. Archbold says. Kor example, Mr. Archbold slates that he and the late II. II. Rogers visited me at the White House and that I then remarked to them that there had been some criti cisms about campaign contributions. This Is n falsehood. Mr. Rogers and Mr. Archbold called on that occasion to protest against any government action being taken against the Stand ard Oil Company. If Mr. Archbold had really believed that Mr. liliss had told him that I knew of any contri bution by Standard Oil or had felt that he was Jeopardized by having re- 1 used to make a contribution or was entitled to immunity for having made one, he would certainly in one of those calls have said as much. He never broached the subject. He denied again and again that the Standard Oil ever got any rebates. And he would keep on Wth these denials even when I would t-,im that 1 had In my possession reports from the. hnioui of corpora tions and the secretary of the interior which conclusively showed that the Standard fill bad been taking rebates on the largest possible scale. Archbold Accused of 1'ulschootl. "Inasmuch as Mr. Archbold does not tell the truth In bis Interview with me, I have no doubt that he does not tell the truth about the man who is dead, and who living, he never dared to accuse as he now accuses him. "Mr. liliss never said one word to! me about any contribution front the Standard Oil corporation and never said one word to me about proceeding or not proceeding against the Stand ard Oil corporation. "During ail that time neither Mr. Archbold or any one else ever hinted to me that the Standard Oil people had contributed or that there ever was any cxpectiition by any human being that I should show favor to the Standard Oil. "Mr. Archbold shows his animus In his rather ludicrous complaint that 'Darkest Africa never saw anything like the persecution of the Standard Oil corporation by the Roosevelt ad ministration.' t do not wonder that he feels bitterly. The action In iiues- tion disclosed all kinds of improper practices on the part of the Stand ard oil Company and n colossal series of rebates. A stop was put to these rebates because of the action of the people In my administration and through tile action a fine was Imposed by Judge I .and if) on the Standard oil Company, which, if it had not been reversed by the appellate division, would really have made that corpora tion smart; and even as it was, it forced them to act properly. Whole Matter a "I'rnnie I'p." "It scents me the course of Mr. Penrose in this matter and the bring ing In of Mr. Archbold to testify bear close analogies to which, in the New York police situation at this time would be called a 'frame up'; and JOHN I. AltCHBOI.D TI01.I.S OF CAMPAIGN CONTIlllW'TUiX. Washington, Aug. 211. John l. Vrohbidd today told the senate com mittee that the Standard oil's J12S, 000 contribution to the republican war ciiesi nt i!nn was made upon assur ances from the late Cornelius K. liliss that "the contribution was acceptable to Colonel Roosevelt and that further contributions would also be accept able." He said that later Mr. Pliss asked lilm for another contribution about $1 50,000 and upon Hie Standard board's refusal to make it, had said to the witness: "I think you had better make this contribution." lie said "outragcoiis attacks" by the government bad dat ed from the board's refusal. In answer to a iicstlon by Senator Penrose, Mr. Archbold declared there had never been made to him n sug gstion that the $100,000 contribution to, the national fund bo returned by the republican campaign committee. Mr. Archbold explained that 111.' $25,000 given to Mr. Penrose "was a political contribution and not a pay ment for services in public or private life." Senator Penrose was a witness be fore the Clnpp committee this after noon. Ho introduced into the record the statement regarding the $2r,00ii contribution to the Pennsylvania cam paign fund of 1(104 by John D. Arch bold and the contribution of JluO.OOO to the national campaign fund, which he made Wednesday In the senate. He said he had practically nothing to add to that, but would answer unyj questions. Senator Penrose's testimony today wa brief and corroboratory of Mr. Archbold's. At Its conclusion the com mittee nd.tou.rned and It was announc ed that George W. Perkins, of New York, would appear next Tuesday. Chairman Clapp was in communica tion with New York City over the long distance telephone today and it wus said he had been discussing with some one there the probability of Colonel Roosevelt's appearing. The nature of his conversation could not be learned.

All plans for the prosecution of the Standard Oil Company had been outlined by James R. Garfield, us head of the bureau of colorations before the fall of 1904, the time when the com pany Is alleged to have contributed $100,000 to the republican campaign fund. This statement was made tonight by Mr. Garfield, who, referring to his diary, found a letter of November 4. 1!I04, In which Mr. Roosevelt denied that such gifts had been sought. "A deliberate and uiulia llf led false hood," was the way Mr. Garfield characterized the evidence given by Mr. Archbold insofar us it dealt with the, prosecution. "Tile investigation by the bureau of corporations," said Mr. Garfield, "was absolutely free from political considerations. Its purpose was to ob tain facts. Instead of opening the books of the Standard oil to the bureau, Archbold and the late If. II. Rogers, offered the bureau statements that proved untrue. The facts devel oped by the bureau were proved in court. "Why, If there was any truth In the accusations these men now make, were they not made while Mr. P.liss, the only man they mention, was alive? It Is easy lo name a dead man, but liliss was alive during Ihe prose cution of the Standard oil case." As to Roosevelt's having Inspired the prosecution. Garfield said he him self had initiated It.

The governor declared his purpose and the officials proffered their as sistance. Rushlight i.nd Shiver told the governor, however, that they did not take much stock in his program.
