S ATTTI PAY, JOT ID, 1913 THE SOUTH BEND NEWS-TIMES. SE TO S HEAR OF, ATTEMPT TO BRIBE GOKflS Man Named Brandenberg Was Following Him and the Plan Had Been Arranged Accord ing to Mulhall. SOUTH BEND FIGURES IN DAY'S TESTIMONY Mulhall and Peter Kline, a Deputy Factory Inspector, Visited City and Secured Many Contributions. WASHINGTON". July 19. S. Wood McClave, republican candidate for congress In a 'fecial election to be held In the sixth N. J. district next Tuesday, camo to Washington Fri day nlffht ami told the senate lobby investigating committee that Martin M. Mulhall, late "lobbyist" for the National Association of Manufactur ers, had perjt red himself in his testi mony before the committee. McClave denied emphatically that Mulhall had raised or spent money for him, had managed his campaign or had beer his close companion and associate during his fight against William Hughes for the sixth dis trict nomination in 1910. Mulhall. tho witness swore, came unknown to him in his office in New York city in 1910 introduced himself and said he wanted to help him. "It looks as if you were going to get the nomina tion," he quoted Mulhall as saying, ".and I wanted to know how you Btood on public questions." McClave said he replied that he Btood for protection and fair dealing to labor, and that Mulhall responded, "our organization stands for the same thing and wants to help you." He addenl that Mulhall insisted up Dn hiring two rooms In Paterson as headquarters, but that he visited them only a few times and then saw only a few newspaper men. Mulhall had letters from Vice Pres. Fhermai. Cong. Gardner and others, the witness said. First Kspericncc "It was my first experience." he added, "and I supposed a man en dorsed by euch men must be all risht." The New Jersey man had been held up to the committee by Mulhall yes terday as one whose meal checks and other expenses Mulhall had continu ously paid and for whom Mulhall raided and spent more than $3,500. This McClave vigorously denied as ab solutely without truth. Martin M. Mulhall gave the senate M. Mulhall Friday jrave the senate lobby investigating committee his ptory of the alleged effort in 11)07 or 1908 to bribe Samuel Gompers to desert the cause of labor and support the policies advecated by the Na tional Association of Manufacturers. He admitted he had no positive infor mation that an attempt to bribe Gompera had actually been made; but he said Atherton Urownell of New York had outlined tho plans to him and had told him of what was to be done. . Mulhall was excxised late Friday afternoon until Monday morning on the ground that he was tired after a week of continuous testimony. The committee held a session Friday night to hear the testimony of R. W. Mc Clave of Paterson, N. J., now a can didate for congress, and with whom Mulhall claimed ho worked through out the campaign of 1910 when Mc Clave was running against William Hughes. The committee opened the Gompers Incident Friday when newspaper clip pings appeared showing that Gompers had made the bribery charges before a court in 190S. and that Pres. Van Cleave of the Manufacturers associa tion had denied all connection with them. Mulhall said he had been re ferred by Van Cleave and Schwedtman to Mr. Prownell In New York, who claimed to be conducting a publicity bureau for the association. Was Following Gompers. Brownell told him. he said, that a man named Hrandenberg was follow ing Gompers; that they had a plan fixed up by which they expected to "get" the labor leader and that thoy were positive could not fail. Mulhall raid he warned them they would not succeed, and later advised Van Cleave to the same effect. Van Cleave left New York sudden ly, the witness said, after telling him that he had nearly "fallen into a trap". "He said they wanted him to go downtown to meet those people, but he got a tip not to fro." added Mulhall. "He told me he thought Prownell had more sense than to go into a trap of that kli.d." This was the extent of M.ilhaH's 'knowledge of the matter, but he ln pisted that from the previous Informa tion he had he knew the plan that ! had been on foot to force Gompers into signing a document that would insure his future action. Mulhall Complains. The Gompers' story and an unex pected outburst from Mulhall who complained that oflWrs of the Na tional Association of Manufacturers were trying to stare him "out of coun tenance", were the enlivening features of a day in which the confessed "lob byist" identified several hundred more of the letters relating to cam paign and legislative activities. Proceedings were running smoothly when Robert McCarter. attorney for the Manufacturers' association, "tried to interrupt and ask Mulhall a ques tion. The committee has thus far permitted no question by outside at torneys. "I refuse to answer any questions from that man." shouted Mulhall. "Further. I want to tell the commit: that those men at that table have ke -t rome one there continually to star" steadily at me while I have been on the stand. I think it i3 a contempti ble trick. The ex-rcsldent (John Klrby, jr..) relieved Mr. Emery at the Job a little while ago." Members of the committee tried to rooth the witness and Acting Chair man Pankhead mildly suggested that Mulhall look at him instead of at Ids antagonists. Mulhall admitted lu -ivaa somewhat nervous but insisted that witnesses hav hnn intimidated rilnce they were Lrouht to Washing- 8 CHAPTER iiy wlwii: IAAZ. I have discovered why children have the measlc.4. Doctors say all the dis eases of children are unnecessary and avoidable, but doctors do not know more than nature does about every thing. It i3 nature's Intention that the woman who obeys all of her laws shall some day be made a grandmother, and so nature Invented tho measles and the whooping cough' and the rrurnps and the chicken pox to pro vide something interesting for grand mothers to do! Thus woman in the Seventh-Age-of-Love is altogether happy. She is more than useful she is necessary. She has learned to do hundreds of things nobody else can do, and that is a grand comfort. Moreover, man does not then consider her ridiculous b 'cause she wears pretty clothes and likes some style to the cut of her skirt. Tile re is always happiness in doing the normal thing and misery n de parting from it. Now this is a platitude seven days in the week, but the nation maintains its expensive penitentiaries, and asy lums, and hospitals simply because people have not got it by heart. They keep right on paying their heaviest taxes year after year as the price of their indifference to truth. The woman who thinks jthe can beat nature by planning her career is bound to pay for her youthful clever ness with wretchedness in her old age. ilut if she marries early and nurses her own children so well that she can instruct any trained nurse in the art of caring for her grandchildren's measles, then she will never have any conspicuous miseries to advertise to a scandal-hunting neighborhood. Woman's attire always indicates the state of her emotions. When a woman of any of the indefi nite and undeterminable ages which follow Forty-Five puts on the co quettish dress and manners of a girl, she seems a huge poster illustration of the revenge which nature takes when her Great Purpose is not ful filled. And her most terrible punishment overwhelms her jn its most dreaded shape the Ridicule of Man. Making which discovery, woman sometimes becomes that unhappiest of human creatures, the student of her own soul, and a real menace to society if she takes to writing morbid book3 like the heroine of that misleading volume, "The Dangerous Age". To the woman who follows her, na ture offers a new enthusiasm In every age of love. The poets are nature's interpreters, and not one of them ever put down greater solace for woman than Browning when he wrote: "Grow old along with me! The best Is yet to be. The last of life, for which the first was made!' ton. "outside as well as inside this committee room". betters identified Friday covered a wide range of activity, but centered chielly about the campaign in Indi ana in 1908, when Mulhall. according to the documents, was working in close co-operation with Cong. James E. Watson and with national and state republican leaders. Mulhall told the committee he raised $5,500 for that campaign. One of the letters referred to this amount; and another mentioned a list of manu facturing concerns In South' Bend, the proprietors of which had been visited by Mulhall In company with Peter Kline, deputy factory Inspector for that district. "In an interview I had with Mr. Parry and other large business men of this section, they clearly stated they were jumping the law a3 far as corporations are concerned subscrib ing to our campaign funds." said Mul hall in a letter to Schwedtman from Indianapolis Sept. 26, 190S. "There are a hundred and one ways to get around that and we all know that, and I cannot see why Mr. Van Cleave cannot go around It ju3t as well as the large manufacturers here." Correspondence read late in the day showed that the Indianapolis News had Identified Mulhall as connected with the Manufacturers' association in September and had brought the mat ter into public discussion. Mulhall laughingly told the committee that local, state and national campaign managers had consistently denied that they knew anything about any work by the National Association of Manu facturers, even after work had been going on for nearly a year in Indiana. In a letter to John Klrby, jr., from Indianapolis. Sept. 22, 1903. just after some of the so-called Archbold letters had been made public, referring to Sen. Foraker. Mulhall said he still had "faith In Ohio's great senator", and thought he would win. He expressed surprise that Roosevelt was stirring up the Standard Oil matter and said. "the president is playing very poor politics". "Instead of gaining votes, he will find on the third of November that it will be a losing game," said the letter. "Even the Standard OH com pany has its friends, and I cannot un derstand why a man of stripe will think it is a crime for a man to hon estly work for a corporation of that kind."

One of these letters said: "Watson was not only the greatest help to us personally, but he represented all the forces that did help us, and I person ally believe that we need friends in congress far more than anywhere else.
