?lie^was finally given a contract by the
rompuny late in August for paving Its

J; j^s a result of these contracts Cap- I
-ta.ti Gasser stated he had purchased
:.?noxc than 111.000 worth of material. I
r*vhuch he now has ready for delivery, j
3lle; had experienced no difficulty in I

completed. It was stated that the
contractor was also doing some work
for the Water Department which had I

delayed *>y the Engineer's Department j
in getting lines and grades. Messrs. j
Clay and Steele reported a contract for
grading Nicholson Street to the Na?
tional Cemetery Koad, awarded last |
April. The work was held back by
the fact that the Cpmmlttee on Streets
secured bids and awarded a contract
without first having the damages as?
sessed, and the repprt of the assessor
was not approved until August 16.
Complaint was also made of the
contract for paving with bituminous
macadam Beverly Street, awarded May
10. to have been completed August It.
and yet far from completed. Assistant
Engineer Todd said the work was held
back by the necessity of lowering
Water and Gas Department house ser?
vice pipes. Mr. Haddon. of the com?
mittee, who lives on that street, stated
that his service pipe had been moved
three separate times by gangs of
men from the water department.

Concrete work was begun yesterday
by Contractor Cheatwood on the long
delayed work of paving Main Street
from Fifth to Seventh, and Contractor
John J. Curley promises to begin
pouring concrete in Broad Street atj
Tenth on Monday morning. Mr. Cur-1
ley stated that he could concrete and!
pave all of the northern half of the
three blocks prepared by the street
car company In a week or ten days
and expressed regret that he would'
then have to disorganize his force and;

the Republican national campaign ot
1904 ?
Mr. Morgan adjusted his glasses and
looked at a paper.
In October, l y04. I gavs $100,000.
on November 1 I gave another $50,
"Any more?" asked Chairman Clapp.
"No, that is all I know of."
Me said hs supposed the first con?
tribution was paid to Cornelius N.
Bliss as treasurer of the Republican
"To whom was the second contribu?
tion made?"
"I don't remember. It was paid in
cash-in money."
Mr. Morgan said he did not know
who solicited the first or second con?
tributions, 'but he believed "Mr. Bliss
and Mr. Odell got the money." He said
that he believed the bulk ot the
second contribution went through the
national committee but was paid over
to the New York State Committee.
Mr. Morgan could not recall con?
tributions in 1904 by his associates.
"Did you contribute in 1*04 to the
congressional campaign " asked Sena
tor Clapp.
? I recall no other contribution that
"What contributions did you make
in 1908?"
Gave ?80,000 In HH
"The only contribution I made la
1908 was t>0,000 to Mr. Sheldon"
He said he made no contributions to
the congressional fund in 1908.
"I remember Mr. Sherman called on
me once" he said, "but I can find no
record of any contribution. If there
was one made It was insignificant."
"Did you make any contribution to
the pre-conventlon campaign of any
candidate for President this year?**
"No. I was not even in the country.
I know my Arm made no contribution.'
As Senator Clapp closed his exarnl
nation. Mr. Morgan said emphatically
that he was "sure" there is no truth
in the story of a telephone request for
funds from President Roosevelt."
Senator Paynter asksd if ths $50.
000 wss part of the so-called Harri
man fund raised for the New York
state Committee.
?'I have no record" said Mr. Morgan,
'but I have no doubt In my own mind
that it was part of that State fund."
"Tour understanding was that the
$50,000 went to the national committee
but it was really paid over to the
state committee?*' suggested Senator
"Tee. I refused to have anything to
do with It unless the money was paid
to the national committee" said Mr.
Morgan. Tt was my understanding
thst the national committee did not
need funds but that the State com?
mittee was badly in need of money.
I had a great deal to do with Mr.
Cortelyoa during the campaign but I
do not know whether hs was present
at the mooting whan ths $80,000 con?
tribution was discussed "

Witness Before Committee
the elder Cornelius X. Bliss had been
very intimate; that Mr. Bliss and his
father had <been associates, he said,
and "whenever they wanted anything
they sent Mr. Bliss to me."
"Had you supposed that Mr. Bliss
and Mr. Cortelyou kept from President
Koosevelt the fact that you contri?
buted to the campaigning- fund?
"I knew nothing ?.bout that" said
Mr. Morgan. He had not discussed
campaign contributions with Mr. Cor?
telyou in 1904.
When Senator Pomerene took up the
examination Mr. Morgan leaned for?
ward In the witness chair, with one.
hand cupped over his ear. But he
failed to hear and finally he got down j
from the witness chair saying:
"Can't I sit down hers near you?|
I can't hear very well"
He took a chair from oa* of the offi?
cial stenographers and moved it to |
within a few feet of Senator Pomer?
Senator Pomerene then asked who-1
tfaer other members of the firm of J.
P. Morgan 4 Company, specifying I
George W. Perkins had contributed in J
1904. Mr. Morgan did not know.
He F-auada for Other Parties
"Did your firm contribute to the j
campaign funds of any other political |
parties la 1804?" asked Senator Pomer?
"No, sir, I did not and I bars no
knowledge of anyone else so con tri-1
butlng." Mr. Pomerene asked sheet |
"conferences" with George B, Cortel?
you. Mr. Morgan said hs talked with
Mr. Cortelyou in 1907 over the fi?
nancial situation but that he recalled
only one conference over politics.
"Did you talk with President Mellen.)
of the New York, New Haven
Hartford Bailroad ia 1*04?"
"Did you talk with representatives I
of the big Insurance companies about j
the political situation during that
"I can't tell. I talked to many peo- ]
pie. Many peopls came In to set me j
every day."
"Do you remember any conference of
big financial Interests at which was
discussed the question of whom the
Interests would support for President?"
"No. I remember no such conference"
replied Mr. Morgan,
"When was It first determined that
th* financial Interests would support
the Republican nominee" asked Sena?
tor Pomerene.
"I never had aay conference oa that j
point" returned Mr. Morgan.
The $100.904 contribution again waa|
brought ap sad Bsnefnr Pc
asked if Mr. Bliss were osllacMng aay]
Special fund. v
"No, that was the contribution we
would make la the regular course if
we wer* especially interested In the
campaign" said Mr. Morgan. "We
made the same contribution la 1904.'
"Were you especially Interested in j
the campaign of 19*4T'
"Tee, we were."
"Was Mr. Harrtman especially la-]
forested la that campaign?"
*T really doa't know."
"Wore the Insurance companies
peclally'Interested In this campaign?"!
"I doa't know. There wee never any
concerted action by me with aay of
the insurance companies la that matter
st that time." said Mr. Morgan em?
phatically. "Of course. Mr. Perkins
was a director of th* Mew Tora Life
Insurance Company, sad he probably
talked with me about their Interests,

Senator Pomerene naked If he b*sM

*T doa't remember any. but It is not

He kaew nothing of any contribution
by Mr. Harrtman or Charles ? Mellen.
"Did Mr. Harrtman ever tell you he
hod a talk with Mr. Roosevelt shout

"I remember so each conversation."

Senator Pomerene
Mr. Morgen responded he never had
been In Mr. Harrlman's office. He said
he talked with no one representing the ,
"national nominee" except officers of
the national committee. He said Chair?
men George & Cortelyou came into his
office "several times" and thought the

The committee and spectators! join?
ed. Mr. Morgan In a laugh.
Dnder ouestions by Senator Pom?
erene, Mr. Morgan repeated he had been
given to understand that the "Harri
man" 1240.000 fund was being raised
for the State committee, but was being
given to, the national committee.
"You understood that though In?
tended for the State campaign the
contribution would eld the national ,
campaign, did you not?"
"Oh. certainly." said Mr. Morgan.
He did not know of any other funds i
subscribed during that year to the Re?
publican national fund.
"Do you know the amount of money
the Republican National Committee
was trying to raiser*
"No- I never asked. My occupation
was gone when they got from me what
they could.*"
Mr Morgan said $50.000 wee ell that
Waa "given to the 1?08 campaign, one
contribution being $20.*00 and another

"These contributions were Sil under j
the direction of Mr. Perkins. I speak
of those because I resnessbe these. I ;
don't know what Mr. Perkins may
