HAMON, ACCUSED OF BRIBERY, DENIES THE ACCUSA TION OF SENATOR GORE. Never Attempted to Bribe. Muskogee, Okla. With Senator Thomas P. (lore reasserting his charges that he had been offered a bribe of $25,000 or $.-,0,000 to Influence his action In congress, and with Jake L. Damon, accused by the senator of having offered the bribe, denying be had ever done any such thing, the In vesflgatlon of the Oklahoma Indian land deals, by a committee of the house of representatives today sim mered down to a mass of denials For four hours, former chairman of the Oklahoma Republican state com mittee, made a continuous series of denials as to his alleged relation with what, are known as the McMurray con tracts, by which, according to Sena tor Oore, $3,000,000 or 10 per cent of $:i0,000,on0 to be realized from the sale of Indian lands to a New York syndicate, was to be diverted from the Indians In the shape of "attor neys' fees." Interrogating the witness. Congress man K. W. Saunders, a member of the committee, said: "Now, Mr. n.im.iii. you have denied the testimony of all the witnesses who have preceded you. You have brand ed the assertions of the senator, his brother, his clerk, and the congress man as absolutely false. It would ap pear from your denials that a con spiracy had been entered into grossly to misrepresent you. How do you ac count for that?" "That's beyond my power to under stand," replied Hamon. "I neor had one penny's worth of Interest In the McMurray contracts and never offered a bribe to anyone. "It Is barely possible that 1 did see Senator Oore on May 6 last when he says the offer of a bribe was made. I saw him frequently, but at this time 1 believe he took me upinto the library of th senate and closed the door. He wanted to talk over with me his com ing oampalg nand see how 1 could help him out financially. Although 1 am a Republican and he a Democrat, 1 was in the habit of helping him out." SLUMP IN THE AUTO BUSINESS. Bottom Seems to Have Dropped Out Notwithstanding Boosting Efforts of Manufacturers. New York. Indications point to the bottom having fallen out of the auto mobile buslnes. The manufacturers, It is reported in trade circles, are making strenuous efforts to keep up a show of continued prosperity, but It Is also said that they are not sell ing their product, but are storing ma chines throughout the country at their various agencies to prevent the pub lic realizing the true conditions of the market. Several large concerns are laying off men and giving all sorts of rea sons for so doing except the state ment that they are overstocked. Two or three of the largest factories re cently closed entirely, ostensibly for the purpose of taking inventory, but the workmen were not given any def inite time at which to again report for work, and It Is not expected that these factories will again be In oper ation this year. A well known automobile agent of this city said yesterday that all cars would undoubtedly be selling at from 25 per cent to 50 per cent less than present Hat prices within the next two or three months. He added: "The trouble with the automobile business Is that the farmers and peo ple of the smaller cities and towns have not taken as kindly to the idea as was anticipated. The farmers find that the cost of keeping them In re pair aud operation Is more than the cost of keeping horses to perform the same work, and while there was, for a time, a tendency among the farmers to Invest In the machines, the defand for cars from this class of buyers has practically stopped, and I venture to say we will not again sell to the farm ers to any extent until prices are ma terially reduced."
