Intelligencer Bureau.
Washington. D. C.. Aug. 23.
Before the Clapp investigating committee to-day John I). Archbold. or
the Standard OH Corporation, corroborated in every detail the charges made
on the floor of the Senate yesterday by Senator Boise Penrose, of Pennayl- j
vanla. These specific charges were that the Standard Oil Corporation,
through Mr. Archbold. had. during the l!»ni campaign, contributed $125.0011
to the campaign of Theodore Roosevelt, and then when the Roosevelt lead-1
ers asked for an additional $150,000 the corporation refused to comply with1
his demands. Angered because the Standard refused longer to dump money
Into his coffers, Roosevelt made his four-flush prosecution of the corpora
tion.
The investigating will not end To-night it was announced that the
committee would continue the investigation nnd would summon additional
witnesses Roosevelt has sidestepped requests to appear before the com
mittee The same Colonel who has been continually clamoring for the
“truth." seemingly for once his j earning* are to be fully and fairly gratified.
X'n'il Roosevelt appears before the committee and produces contradictory
evidence of the Penrose charge* that can he Rubstnntlated. he will In the
eves of the nation be the ehatnplon anti-trust buster and the new president
of the Ananias Club, and peer of slush fund recipients
IBy Associated Press.)
WASHINGTON. I). C. Aug. 23.—It Is believed here to-night that Colo
Del Roosevelt will take the stand in a few days before the Senate sub-com
mittee Investigating campaign expenditures, to answer to the charges mad*
to-day by John I). Archbold. that Mr Roosevelt had knowledge of the use of
Standard Oil money in his campaign of IJi'i.
The committee *a* divided to-night over its futuri* course of action. j
X'pon the arrival to-morrow of Senator Luke I-ea. one of the absent Demo- :
eratir members of the committee a meeting will be held to determine wliWm ]
to call, and where the next meeting is to In* held. Several members of the]
sub-committee favor transferring tin* hearing at once to New York, where)
Colonel Roosevelt. George W. Perkins. George B. Corf cl you and member* :
* Of the Standard Oil Company's bn.*rd of directors might testify

D. Arrhbold. financial head of the,
Standard Oil Company, made a clear
cut Issue between him and Colonel
Roosevelt, according to members of
the aub-committoe who would discuss
the matter tonight. Mr Archboid
testified that his understanding that'
Colonel Roosevelt knew about ami
endorsed the Standard Oil contribu
tions came through former treasurer]
Cornelius N. Bliss, of the Republican
National Committee, who is dead.
Although Colonel Roosevelt public-,
ly stated that It was absurd for him
to appear before the Senate commit
tee. it is understood that he has con
sented to take the stand, if desired. In
view of the direct charges made to
day by Mr. Archbold. If Mr Cortei
you is recalled, it wil hr* to explain
the statements inndc hv Mr Arrhbold |
that Mr Cor*elyou. as chairman of
the National comm.tfee. knew of and
sanctioned the Standard oil contribu
tions.
Pcnator Pomerene of Ohio, who sit
with the sub-committee to-day to rep
resent the absent liemocratlc m<m
hers, probably will he made a perma
nent member of the committee in
place of Senator Payne, of Kentucky.
The sub-committee will then consist
of Sena'or Clapp, chairman. Senators
Jones, Oliver. I*e.-i and Pomerene.
The committee is authorized to con
tinue its sessions after the adjourn
ment of Congress, and the conclusion
of the session tomorrow will not In

Postoffice Appropriation Bill Was
the Latest Measure to
Pass Senate.
WASHINGTON. D -C., Aug. 23 —
| Plans for the adjournment of Con !
Kress to-morrow were threatened to
night In the House by a determined j
tight of Representative Murdock, of,
Kunsas, against an appropriation of I
$33,000 for mall service on the Had* I
bridge across the Mississippi river. 1
The bridge connects East St. lands j
and 8t. l>ouis. and is owned by flf-1
teen corporations. Mr. Murdock, amid |
exciting scenes among the members
anxious to get home, insisted on a
point of no quorum, and a hurried caJl
was sent out for absentees.
WASHINGTON. D C . Aug. 23.—
Veterans of Congress failed to-night j
to recall another such "tame” end
ing of Congress as that which marks
the present session, which probably
will close to-morrow afternoon. None
of the feverish haste Hnd hustle that
usually characterizes the completion:
jef legislation and the passage of con
ference reports on appropriation bills
was apparent tonight.
Representative I'nderwood. Demo
cratic leader of the House, went over
[to the Senate chamber late to-day and j
reached a formal agreement with
Senators Penrose and Stnoot to dis-1
■pose of all general legislation to
night. leaving only the^onferenco re-1
port on the general deficiency to he I
cessed at 6 o'clock until fi:30, and the.
Senate went ahead with the passage:
of the appropriation bills, so that the'
House could consider them to-night. j
The army hill caused but little i
debate in either branch, and the con-'
fercnce rejort was adopted by both1
Houses during the day. The Senate'
passed the general deficiency hill
after a short debate, and conferees
will adjust the differences of the two
Houses on this measure to-morrow
The post office appropriation bill
was the latest of the measure to
pass the Senate. The general defi
ciency hill as it passed the Senate,
carried nearly I12.000.A00. almost
double the amount of the House bill ;
Many amendments were adopted dur ,

was the Item of fAtj.Aoo to repay con-'

Author of the Charges States Tha*
Teddy’s Relations With Oil
Trust Proven.
WASHINGTON. August 2S—fti re»
Ply to the statement of t'olonefrftooae
velt In New York today. Senator-Pen
rose said tonight:
"Colonel Roosevelt’s relations. with
the Standard Oil company clearly —
have been established The Standard
OH company, through John D. Arch
bold. contributed $125,000 to the Re
publican national campaign of 1904.
Colonel Roosevelt did not consider
that amount sufficient and demanded
an additional contribution of $U>0.
000. in reply to the disclosure of
these facts Colonel Roosevelt submits
a letter, which In police circles would
be known as a "frame up” and an-at
tack upon me personally. The ex
posure of Colonel Roosevelt relations
with the Standard OH company are
such that the frenzied cry of "H&r”
will nor satisfy the people. John D.
Archbold's statement before the Sen
ate investigating committee today1’
substantiated every assertion I made
on the floor of the Senate on Wed
nesday relaring to the Standard OH
company's contribution in the cam
paign of 1904. Mr Archbold appear
ed before the committee at his own
request.
Members of that body informed me
today that no such requisition had
been received by Colonel Roosevelt.
I intend to follow the matter to end.
Mr Archbold left Washington this!
afternoon, with the understanding
that he would again appear before
the committee and submit books and
other records bearing upon the Stand
ard OH company contribution. I shall
insist that all the persons mentioned
In my statement in the Senate Wed
nesday. including Colonel Roosevelt,
shall be summoned by the com
mittee.”
MYSTERY IN A
TRIPLE MURDER
HAST P.Ot'RNB. Kngland. August
23.—One of the greatest mysteries Id
Hie annals of Bngllsh crime seems
llkelv to be placed on record In con
nection with the four murders and
tuicide committed bv lllcka Murray
here on August 19. Ever since that
date the detective department and »
host of reporters have been Investi
gating every possible clue to the mur
derer suicide, but no progress has
been made in solving the problem.
Me was suppoeed "to have been an
iJtlc.-r In a Scottish regiment but this
h s been proved erroneous. The be
lief rains ground that Murray vit
the black sheep of a prominent family,
although ihere is nothing to demon,
i-trate this In his marriage certificate
Murray gave his father’s occupation
as a barrister, but no trace of such a
person can lx- found Iteyond thh»
certificate and his claim to hare been
a soldier in India. Murray never
spoke of bis past.
