U. P. Morgan Testifies
Before Campaign In
vestigation Committee
Washington, Oct. 3. J. Picrpont
Morgan proved a -willing witness to
day before the Cuipp committee in
vestigating campaign expenditures
nnd testified that he had given $150,
flOO to the Republican campaign of
1904 and 530,000 to the Republican
campaign of $1908.
In an hour1! questioning Mr. Mor
gan denied emphatically the ohnrge
by Charles Edward Russell of New
vf fi'ork. that President Roosevelt had
j? once telephoned for a campaign con
j' trtbution; declared ho never hnd
K any communication with President
II Xtoosovert and assorted that he knew
l of no conferences among financial
M ; men in 1904 or 1908 to agree on sup
I) i porting Republican or Democratic
Pa presidential candidates.
Sfg l His first appearance on the wit-
I ' nc8S 8tan 'or many years, Mr. Mor
f gan appeared willing to answer fully
If ; all questions. He confirmed the toa
f timony yesterday of George R. Shel
'Jfl 1m tnat he had 5iven $10,000 to tho
mm Republican national fund of 1904 and
M added that he later gave $50,000 to the
j so-callod "Harrlman" fund of ?240,-
M0 raised for the Now York state
N$ committee.
I Mr. Morgan asserted no contribu
tion had over been given by his firm
or himself with the idea of securing
any favors thereby. He was espe
cially interested in tho 1904 cam
paign, ho said, solely for the welfare
of the country and the people at
large. That was the only interest,
he said, that had guided him In mak
ing contributions to political par
ties. The testimony of Mr Morgan sup
ported that of Mr. Sheldon yesterday
that tho so-called "Harrlman fund"
of 1904 had been raised as an emer
gency fund to help the New York
state" oommlttoe Mr. Morgan said he
understood that to be the fact when
he gave $50,000 to the fund November
1, 1904. Mr. Harrlman had said it was
raised at the request of President
"Did vou contribute In 1904 to tho
congressional campaign?" asked Mr.
"I rocall no other contribution that
"What contributions did you make
. in 1908?"
"The only contribution I mado in
190S was $20,000 to Mr. Sheldon "
Made No Contributions
Ho said he made rio contributions
to the congressional campaign in 1908.
"I remember Mr. Sheldon called on
me once," he said, "but I can find
no record of anv contribution. Tf
there was one made It wos insignificant."
! Did you make any contribution to
H? the pre-conventlon campaign of any
candidate for president this year'"
"No. I was not even In the coun-
Wm tvv. T know my firm made no con
H tribution."
H As Senator Clapp closed his ex
it ;.' nmlnatlou, Mr. Morgan said omohat- I
H ' ically that he was "sure" there is no
truth in the story of a telephone re-
quest for funds from President
i? . Roosevelt.
ill Senator Paynter asked Mr. Morgan
it if the $50,000 was part of the so
ft i callod Harrlman fund raised for the
ifl I New York state committee,
ft "I have no records, but I have no
ji doubt In mv own mind that it was
w : part of that state fund."
8 "Your understanding was that the
1 $50,000 went to the national commlt-
Uj tec." said Mr. Morgan. -It was my
m understanding that the national com-
S, mlttee did not neod funds but that
4 i the state committee was badly In need
jf ' of money. I had a great denl to do
with Mr Cortelypu during tho carn
al palgn, but I don't know whether he
4 was present at the meeting when the
Sm ?50 000 contribution was discussed."
I Intimate With EMns.
Mr. Morgan said his relations with
the late Cornelius N. Bliss had been
verv Intimate. Mr Bliss and his
father had been very intimate, he
said, and "when they wanted anything
they sent Mr Bliss to me "
"Had vou supposed that' Mr Bliafl
and Mr'Cortelyou kept from Presi
dent Roosevelt the fact thut you con
tributed to the campaign fund?"'
"I kuew nothing about that," said
Mr Morgan 'Tie had not discussed
campaign contributions with Mr. Cor
tolyou In 1904." he said.
When Senator Pomerene took up
the examination. Mr. Morgan leaned
forward in tho witness chair, with
one hand cupped over his ear. But ho
failed to hoar and finally ho got
' down from the witness chair, saying:
m "Can't I sit down here near you?
yffL 1 can't hear very well."
if He took la chair from one of tho
4li . official stenographers and moved It
Jgjj to within a few feet of Senator
I Pomerene.
Senator Pomerene then asked
whether other mombers of the firm
of J Piorpont Morgan A company
specifying George W. Perkins, had
contributed In 1304. Mr. Morgan did
not kTiow.
"Did your firm contribute to the
campaign funds of any other political
parties In 190 P" asked Mr. Pom
erene. "No, sir, I did not and I have no

Detroit, Mich.. Oct, 3. If the story

Evening Standard's Lecturer and Demonstrator Tells of Healthful H
Foods at "Carnegie Library Hall Meeting Large Ba
Audience Hears; Discussion, Wjx
"Eat more vegetables and fruit; 1
ue-c lc&s meat and be convinced,"
summarizes the advice of Sherwood
P Snyder, the food specialist, In his
lecture and demonstration In tho
fourth session of the school of in
struction and scientific cooking, boing
held In Carnegie Library hall under
tho nusplcos of the Evening Standard
Mr. Snyder 16 not a vegetarian Hla
knowledge, though of ,tho chomlcal
constituents and nutritious values of
different' kinds of meats aud meat
products and vegetables), and the
conversion of the latter Into meat
substitutes enables him to at once
classify and make plain tho dlfforcnt
food values Although a meat cater,
yet ho restricts his meat dlot to cer
tain kinds and says that a restriction
of the present meat consumption
would undoubtedly insure bettor health
generally, and that moat once a day
is an abundanoc for tho avorago per
Ison 1
Whether or not meat enters into
the diet Is a mattor each family or
Individual must determine The cli
mate and season should ontor Into
the matter In no little decree
The audience that filled the Carnc
gio hall was deeply interested in the
dlscii6Blon of the subject matter, "The
Medicinal Propertied of Vegetables,"
for many of the old-time theories wero
overthrown and practices handed
down from the grandmothers found to
bo faulty and wrong The reasons
wero qlvon and these could not bo
refuted For Instance, he said that
tho custom of parliolllng vegetables
Is a serious mistake By 50 doing a
great amount of the flavor and fond
elements are wasted The larger pari
of the mineral salts, he said, and
which are soluble in water, are lost
nnd the deploted, washed-out re&iduo
remains to be eaten It matters not
what vegetables are to be cooked use
as little water as possible or, vhai
is better still, steam them without tho
addition of water to the vegetables,
"For example," he said, "onions,
carrots, spinach, turnips, parsnips and
other vegetables, If placed In a pun
and steamed, without the addition of
water, are far Bunorlnr to tbe. rrt
He advises ngainst the use of lard
or meat frylnga for frying purposes or
seasoning. While it may aeem cheap
er at tho time, yet lard is tho most
unwholesome fat that wo have on
the market and In many instances is
very deleterious to health. He advises
the uso of vegetable fats, stating for
his reasons that the Bource of the
production is freor from contamination
and disease. Vegetable fats are eas
ier digostcd and nro not so readily
broken down chemically when sub
jected to hent. Among the various
vegetable fats sold on the market he
recommends Cottolene as being tho
one containing tho highest refined
cottonseed oil and tho best quality of
stearlne, and ho says according to
chemical analysis is the best product
in the way of fat that is sold on tho
markot today.
Concerning tho medicinal value of
vegetables he said that carrots arc
an excellent healthful food. Spinach,
red beets, water cress rank high as
blood tonics because they contain a
goodly per cent of organic iron. Tho
organic iron of this character, as
found in vegetables, 5s Jn every way
far superior to tho best tonics pro
duced In the way of medicine.
Ho said that the vegetables that
can bo used raw should always find
p place on the table. The rational
idea is to use more of such foods to
prevent disorders, rather than to uso
them alone as a curative agency.
Theo are things with which flach
woman should be familiar and, whoa
oclence is applied to foods and cook
ing, it becomes a subject most Inter
esting. Increased Interest in the list of
magnificent prizes to be awarded Sat
urday for the best baked products is
being manifested by the, thousands of
women who will participate In thin
contest, which promises to be a note
worthy event in the week's annals of
the city. The fact that a loaf cafco
will win the splendid gas range; and
a layer cake the handsome kitchen
cabinet, and doughnuts a firolefO
cooker, all of which are on exhibition
and In uso on tho 3tage, aro incen
tives that will prompt the baking of
hundreds of cakes for tills contest

handsome and valuablo prlaes for
prize winning cakes nrc also on exhi
