CHICAGO, Aug. 'fl. Republican
finances wero again under sorutlny
of tho sennte committee Investigat
ing campaign expedltures today.
Will Hnyi, l'red Upham nnd other
narty leaders found occasion for fur
ther denial of Governor Cox's charges
that u $15,000,000 fund was being
raised, and offered the committee
leads dlrcctod toward the democratic
Questioned by Democrat.
Mr. Upham, as treasurer of the
republican national committee, was
questioned at great length by Sena
tors l'omcrcne and Reed, democrats,
who elicited from him information
that the congressional and senatorial
campaign committees of tho party
had budgets totalling $700,000 In
addition to the moro than $3,000,000
budget appearing In Chairman Hays'
testimony yenterday. At Senator
Reed's request Mr. Upham read a
table of state quotas which tho wlt
nera said he made up 14 months bo
fore Senator Harding was nominated.
This table totalled $4,401,500, but
Mr. T'pham explained ho had no de
sire to collect moro than $3,000,000
of this amount.
Senator Reed did not shake Mr.
Upham's denial that ho had no
knowledge of the city quota list
which Governor Cox read In his
speech at Pittsburgh last week. Tho
questioning by tho Missouri senator
finally led to tho point whero Mr.
Upham said ho did not know how
much of the various state quntaa was
assigned to particular localities. Ho
said he knew of only two city finan
cial directors of ,tho party In tho
country, ono each In Chicago and
Xew York, but ho "hoped thero wcro
a lot more."
Never Saw Quota.
"I never Haw a quota for any city
In the United States," aid Mr. Up
ham: "I assigned only the state
quotas and how theso wero sub
divided by tho sin to organizations
was none of my affair,"
"No, but you aro responsible for
them In law, fact and conscience, so
long as these subdivisions wcro mado
by agents of your commltteo and so
long ns thcBe agents did nothing
criminal In carrying out your sys
tem," rejoined Senator Reed.
Senator Reed then argued there
was no way to limit tho amounts
that might be collected in any ono
state, and Mr. Upham retorted that
ho "would stop them before they
got to $3,000,000."
Mr. Upham agreed with Senator
Pomerene that It was both possible!
and probablo largo sums would bo
