Attempt to Bribe Samuel
Gompers Aired at Hearing |
•IcClave, republican candidate for con
gress, in a special election to be held
In the sixth New Jersey district Tues
day, came to Washington tonight, and
fold the senate lobby investigating
committee that Martin M. Mulhall, late
•lobbyist" for the National Association
cf Manufacturers, had perjured himself
la his testimony before the committer.
McClave denied emphatically that
Mulhall had raised or spent money for
nim, had managed his campaign or had
been his close companion and associate
in his fight against William Hughes
tor the sixth district nomination in
Mulhall, the witness swore, came un
known to him In his office in New
Tork in 1910, introduced himself and
said he -wanted to help him.
"It looks as If you were going to get
the nomination." he quoted Mulhall as
saying, "and I wanted to know how
you stood on public questions."
McClave said he replied that he stood
for protection and fair dealing to labor
and that Mulhall responded:
"Our organization stands for the
same thing and wants to help you."
Mulhall had letters from Vice Pres
ident Sherman. Congressman Gardner
and others, the witness said.
• "It was my first experience," he add
ed, "and I supposed that a man in
dorsed by such men must be all right."
The New Jersey man had been held
up to the committee by Mulhall yester
day as one whose meal checks and
other expenses Mulhall had paid and
for whom Mu'hall raised and spent
more than $3,500. This, McClave vig
orously denied as absolutely without
McClave said he could obtain no aid
from the republican national commit
ter, and that when Mulhall came as the
representative of tbe National Asso
ciation of Manufacturers he said he
was willinsr to accept their assistance.
What was the National Association
pf-Manufacturers to get in return for
the money it spent?" asked Senator
'•1* was going to get a representative
in the American congress who was in
faVor of protection to American in
dustries." replied McClave.
Mulhall gave the senate committee
today his story of the effort in 1907 or
1908 to bribe Samuel Gompers to de
sert the cause of labor and support
the policies advocated by the National
Association of Manufacturers. He ad
mitted he had no positive information
that an attempt to bribe Gompers ac
tually had been made; but he said
Atherton Brownell of New York had
outlined the plana to him and had told
him of what was to be done.
The committee opened the Gompers'
Incident when newspaper clippings ap
peared showing that Gompers had
made the bribery charges before a
court In 1908, and that President Van
Cleve of the Manufacturers* associa
tion had denied all connection with
them. Mulhall said he had been re
ferred by Van Cleve and Schwedtman
' to. Mr. Brownell In New Tork, who
said he was conducting a publicity
bureau for the association.
Brownell told him, he said, that a
man named Brandenberg was follow
ing Gompers; that they had a plan
fixed up by which they expected to
•get" the labor leader; and that they
v. ere positive they could not fall. Mul
hall'sald he warned them they would
not succeed, and later advised Van
Cleve to the same effect.
Letters identified covered a wide
range of activity, but centered chiefly
about the campaign in Indiana in 1908,
when Mulhall, according to the docu
ments, was working in close co-opera
tion *with Congressman James E. Wat
eon and with national and state re
publican leaders.
The Citirens' Industrial Association
of America, with C. W. Post as Its
president, and many officers of the Na
tional Association of Manufactues on
its list, figured prominently in the pro
ceedings. Several letters on the sta
tionery of this association and signed
' James A. Emery, secretary," were
read, and Senator Reed suggested it
was a "half brother" to the manufac
ture! s' association.

Senator Bristow Starts Tem
pest of Oratory by Renew
ing Attacks on Secre
tary's Lecture Tour
Democratic Members Point
Accusing Finger at Kan
sas Senator
WASHINGTON", July 18.—Secretary
Bryan's policy of lecturing in his va
cation time Involved the senate in a
bitter controversy today. It began
when Senator Bristow, ignoring the
defeat of his resolution directed at
Mr. Bryan's action, insisted upon being
heard in severe criticism of the cabi
net officer.
Before the debate ended, charges
and countercharges between senators
on the two sides of the chamber had
brought the senate to a high pitch of
excitement. Senator Ashurst produced
an old letter of Senator Bristow's,
which, he declared, indicated that Mr.
Bristow in 1906 had been perfectly
willing to take a federal position and
devote only part of his time to it.
Senator Bristow retorted with the
charge that Senator Ashurst had spent
over ?100 of public funds sending pri
vate telegrams that should have been
pai,] for from his own pocket, a charge
denied by Senator Ashurst, but which
Senator Bristow agreed to prove by
producing original telegrnms that had
berm paid for out of senate funds.
From these personal accusations the
debate went Into the general field of
public lecturing and writing, and demo
cratic senators called attention to the
Chautauqua platform work of Senator
Bristow and many other?, and to the
newspaper writing that Senator Bris
tow had 1 done nt thodast Baltimore con
tention. The Kcni»,« senator emphati
cally declared that he never had
neglected the duties of his office.
"I am not on trial here." he said.
"I simply want to show that people
who live in glass houses should not
throw stones," said Senator James.
Senators Bristow, Townsend, Fall
and o*hers attacked in strong: language
the action of Secretary Bryan in de
livering paid lectures at a time when
they claimed public questions required
his close attention to the affiairs of the
state department.
The Bristow resolution Introduced
Tuesday calling upon President Wil
son to state what salary would be
sufficient to secure all of Secretary
Rryan's time was tabled by a vote of
41 to 29 as soon as it came up today,
nil the democrats and Senators Borah
and Poindexter opposing it.
A prepared attack upon Secretary
Bryan's 1 action by Senator Townsend
and an extensive defense by Senator
Lewis illumined the oratory of the day.
Senator Townsend Insisted the ex
ample of the secretary In selling his
time for private giin when it already
had been sold to the government was
unwholesome for the entire country.
Senator Lewis apked when the sen
ator from Kansas and the senator from
Michigan had become so "subtly Inocu
lated with a comprehension of the dan
gers" of a public official spending his
vacation addressing the people on
questions of vital interest to them. He
said this could have been when a re
publican president was campaigning
at the expense of the tar payers".
[ ""Where was the voice of protest
when a postofflce official turned him
self into a great political machine to
elect another public official to the
presidency?" he inquired. "Where was
the voice when Major Kay abandoned
his post In the army to engage In po
litical work In Chicago for a presi
dential candidate? Why were the
voices of the senate silent then? Was
It because those men were not dem
ocrats? Where was the voice when
officials of previous administrations
were speculating in the stock market
and on tariff bills?"
Secretary Bryan talked freely with
the newspaper men today about his
much dismissed and criticised plan to
spend his vacation on the lecture plat
form. He said he probably would make
a little more than $250 on each lec
ture, and added: "When I return I'll
tell you just how much I have made."
Mr. Bryan will deliver his first lec
ture before the Winona (Indiana)
Chautauqua assembly Sunday after
noon. He will make as many addi
tional lectures as time will permit be
fore his return for his conference with
Ambassador Henry Lane Wilson, now
en route to Washington from Mexico
City to make the report to President
Wilson and Secretary Bryan which
probably will determine the future at
titude of the United States toward the
revolution torn republic to the south.
The secretary indicated that he was
making the trip under his own aus
pices and said he would not become
president of the Winona Chautauqua
until its reorganization after its in
debtedness had been liquidated.

Dooling Is Named as Judge
Nomination Goes to Senate
Jurist Is Eminent
for Classical
President Also Urges
His Appointee for
U. S. Attorney
President Wilson sent to the senate
in Washington yesterday the nomina
tion of Maurice T. Dooling of Hollister
for United States judge of the north
ern district of California and Albert
Schoonover of Los Angeles for Fnited
Stateg attorney for the southern dis
trict of California.
Judge Pooling was born at Moore's
Flat in Nevada county in 1860. His
father was a pioneer of the mountains,
his mother a sister of the famous early
day priest, Bishop Manogue, whose
name is recalled in the history of Corn
stock days. His early education was
the public schools of Nevada county.
and later he came to San Francisco to
study at St. Mary's college, then lo
cated on this side of the bay.
Graduating in 18S0, he took the de
gree of master of arts in 1881 and
then taught classics in the college for
two years.
In ISS3 Judge Pooling, then 23 years
old, moved to San Benito county and
the next year was elected to the as
sembly from that district, making a
reputation for fearlessness and honesty
in the legislature.
Dooling left the assembly in 1886
and began to practice law in Hol
lister, continuing until 1592, when he
was elected district attorney as the
nominee of both republicans and demo
crats. In 1894 he was re-elected and
two years later resigned to become su
perior judge.
Re-election came to him in 1902,
when the two parties joined to support
him. There was no opposing candidate.
His record as a judge is Btatewide. and
he has been called repeatedly to other
districts to try cases.
As an Instance of the confidence
placed in him. no civil case in his own
county has ever been tried by a jury
in his court, the litigants preferring
his judgment to that of 12 jurors.
Aside from his judicial reputation
he is widely known as an orator and
a scholar. His standing as a publicist
and jurist brought him the degree of
doctor of philosophy from Santa Clara
Judge Dooling is grand vice presi
dent of the Native Sons, a member of
the Salinas lodge of Elks, Watsonville
lodge of the Knights of Columbus, Hol
lister Camp of the Woodmen and the

His home is in Hollister, where he
lives with his wife and two sons.
Tige Can Bark All Night

fSp°clal Dispatch to The Cain
BERKELEY, July 18.—Epigramatic
are some of the statements made by
Prof. Robert Irving Fulton in his lec
tures on public speaking at the Uni
versity of California summer session.
Here's some of them:
"A Baltimore girl going on the
stage drags her heels. A Boston girl
puts her toes down first."
"A woman is poorly dressed when
people turn around to look at her
after she has passed."
"A girl can say 'quit?, or 'stop' so
that it means 'go on.'"
To his class Professor Fulton, who
has achieved national repute in his
recitations and as dean of the college
of oratory in Ohio Wesleyan univer
sity, said:
"Study elocution by watching a baby
breathe and how he uses his abdominal
muscles. Notice how a dog breathes.
Because he breathes correctb' he can
bark all night and not become hoarse.
A dog understands the elocution of his
master —not his words. A dog Is the
best sort of elocutionist."

Human Chain of Four Men,
Braving Torrent, Drags
Helpless Victim From
Raging Waters
Truman Chapman, 22 years old, of
Hamilton, Ont., was rescued from the
brink of the American falls tonight by
four men, one of* whom took a desper-
ate chance to reach him. Chapman was
sitting on the Iron railing just above
Prospect point and was seen suddenly
to topple backwards into the stream.
At this point the current Is swift
and the pull toward the brink of the
falls, 15 feet away, almost irresistible.
After striking the water Chapman's
body lodged against two projections of
rock and this undoubtedly saved him
from almost instant death.
When the cry went up that a man
was in the water, John Hughes and
Thomas S. Winders of Niagara Falls,
Thomas D. Thomas of Toronto and a
fourth man. who did not give his name,
leaped over the railing.
The unidentified man waded several
feet, but did not reach Chapman.
Hughes, Winders and Thomas then
formed a chain from the iron fence
and clinging to the unknown's hand
enabled him to reach Chapman.
Twice the man at the end of the
chain was swept from his feet but he
clung to his burden and the united
efforts of the men nearest, who had
better footing, finally swung the two
of them out of the grasp of the cur
Chapman was unconscious for an
hour after being taken ashore. Rela
tives said he was subject to fits and
undoubtedly was stricken while sit
ting on the railing.

SEATTLE, Wash., July 18.— While
the officers of the Pacific reserve, fleet
of the United States navy were danc
ing at the arjny and navy ball in the
state armory tonight, several hundred
of their sailors and marines were
marching through the streets of the
city, denouncing the Industrial Work
ers of the World and the red flag, sack
ing and burning socialist and Indus
trial Workers' headquarters, and in
their haste demolishing a Salvation
Army meeting room before learning
that they had mistaken the place.
The city headquarters of the moder
ate socialists and the radical socialists
were sacked and the books and furni
ture carried into the street and burned.
A socialist news stand on the prin
cipal street corner of the city was de
molished, and the big meeting room of
the Industrial Workers of the World,
in the southern part of the city was
stripped of its belongings, which were
thrown from a second story window
and burned in the street below.
The police offered not the slightest
real resistance to the rioters.
Some of the officers said that all the
force was busy handling the Potlatch
crowds, and no reserves were available
to cope with the rioters.
The hatbands of the cruisers Charles
ton, Colorado and California were
most numerous among the sailors.
A few uniformed members of the
Washington naval militia Joined with
the naval men.
Citizens made up most of the mob.
The actual destruction of property
was carried on by uniformed men.
Among them were a number of petty

A report was widely circulated today
that Secretary of the Navy Daniels in
a speech at the Rainier club last night,
had taken the Industrial Workers of
the World as his subject and had de
clared that they and all other believers
in the red flag should be driven out
of the country.
Those who heard the address of the
secretary say that lt was exceedingly
moderate and had no reference to any
local trouble. Nor did he at any time
mention the Industrial Workers.
A street fight last night at an In
dustrial Workers' meeting, in which
three soldiers were beaten, had been
represented to the naval men as a di
rect attack upon the service. All day
some sort of trouble had been expected.
Waving United States flags, one
storming party swooped down on the
cart news stand of Millard Price, a
socialist speaker, at Fourth avenue and
Westlake boulevard, the busiest night
corner of the city.
The cart was broken to splinters in
a moment, the big stock of socialist
papers and magazines torn, tossed Into
the street and jumped upon.
The sailors and their associates then
rushed to the socialist headquarters in
Fifth avenue near Stewart, smashed
in the big plate glass front and nailed
