MONEY AIDED 1904 CAMPAIGN Standard Oil Magnate Says $100,000 Went to Republican National Com tnlttee and $25,000 Was Paid to Penrose for State Committee. MAIN POINTS IN ARCHBOLD'S TESTIMONY. Paid Cornelius N. Bliss $100,000 for na tional Republican committee In 1004 with understanding It would be acceptable to Roosevelt and that he know of It. Paid Senator Penrose $25,000 for Penn sylvania campaign. Paid In surrency rather than check to avoid publicity. Asked for $150,000 more by Bliss, but refused to pay It. Cortelyou sent Bliss to Archbold for second donation, saying It was "Inadvis able" for Cortelyou to come In person. "Outrageous attacks" on the Standard by Roosevelt dated from refusal of second contribution. Archbold and H. H. Rogers visited Roosevelt at White House later and were told by Roosevelt that there "had been some criticism of campaign contributions but It couldn't be avoided." Rogers, Tllford and Barstow of trust board died during 1909, "worried to death." William Fllnn of Pittsburgh sought Archbold's aid to gain seat In senate after death of Senator Quay. Didn't hear anything about the Stand ard's money being refunded and never got It back. Washington, D. C, John D. Arch bold told the senate committee in vestigating campaign funds that the Standard Oil Co.'s $125,000 contribu tion to the Republican war chest of X904 was made upon assurances from Cornelius N. Bliss that "the contribu tion was acceptable to Colonel Roose velt and that further contributions would be acceptable." Archbold appeared on the stand be fore the sub-committee of the senate Investigating campaign contributions, to explain the controversy between Colonel Roosevelt and Senator Pen rose over the question. Mr. Archbold explained that $100, 000 went to the Republican national committee and that $25,000 was given to Senator Penrose for the Republican Btate committee. Gave Penrose $25,000, Too. When tho committee assembled, Mr. Archbold was sworn and Senator Clapp asked him what contribution the Standard Oil Company had made to the campaign of 1904. "We made two contributions to the Republican campaign in 1904, one to Cornelius N. Bliss of $100,000 and the other to Senator Penrose of $25,000," replied Mr. Archbold. Subsequently to these contributions Mr. Archbold said he talked with Mr. Bliss, not later than October 10, about further conditions. He thought Mr. Rogers might have been at one of them. He remembered that no one elBe was present. "What was the result of these con ferences?" asked Senator Clapp. "We decided not to make the fur ther contribution." "Did you have any conferences with any one except Mr. Bliss, whom you knew or understood to represent Col. Roosevelt?" asked Senator Clapp. "No. I talked very frankly with Mr. Bliss. I told him we wanted to make this contribution, but not with out the knowledge of the powers that be. AVo wanted it understood and ap preciated by Col. Roosevelt. Mr. Bliss smilingly assured me that this would be done." TEDDY REITERATES DENIAL Oyster Bay, N. Y. Col. Roosevelt cat on the porch at Sagamore Hill ifor an hour and a half and dictated a statement in reply to the testimony of John D. Archbold before the senate Investigating committee. He reiterated his declaration that he 'knew nothing of a contribution by Mr. 'Archbold or tho Standard Oil Co. to tho Republican campaign of 1904; de clared that he did not "for one mo jment believe that Mr. Archbold's tes Itimony is truthful"; and charged Mr. 'Archbold with a "wicked assault on a dead man." He added that during many calls (Which Mr. Archbold made upon him 'while he was president to urge him not to prosecute tho Standard Oil Co., 'Mr. Archbold never referred to any contribution to IiIb campaign fund, and concluded with the suggestion that the senate committee should make both Mr. Archbold and Senator Penrose testify at once concerning their relations while Mr. Penrose was member of the Industrial commission. In his last word Col. Roosevelt jthanked both Messrs. Archbold and IPenrose for "making it clear beyond possibility of. doubt that I am the man the PenroBes and Archbolds of the country most dread in public life." Bride Arrested at the Altar. Perth Amboy, N. J. MrB. Mary Pfelffer King was arrested at the altar and cast off by her wealthy 'husband of a moment, Paul King, when lie learned that hls'brldo was charged with forgery.

Government WIN Show No More Par tiality and Pest Will Meet Fate of Fly and Mosquito. Washington, D. C. A lonely mi crobe, disheartened and ready to die because the public health service is rapidly putting all his ilk where they can do humanity no harm, peeked over the edge of Assistant Surgeon General Rucker's desk and heard the doctor humming a ditty that went like this: A fly and a flea, a mosquito and a louse. All lived together in a very dirty house. The flea spread the plague and the skeeter spread the chills. All worked together to make the un dertaker's bills. ' The fly spread typhoid and the louse spread typhus, too. Folks In that house were a mighty sickly crew. Along came a man and he cleaned up the house. He screened out the skeeter and swat ted the louse. The fly and the flea he cracked on the wall. Now the people in that house are never sick at all. "Well," piped up the microbe, "that's all very well as far as it goes but it strikes me you've been a bit partial in this thing. How about the bed bug? Where does he get oft?" "He's going to get off pretty quick," returned the doctor. "So far, the bed bug has been able to prove an alibi, but I've put the sanitary detective on his trail and I'll get him yet." Whereupon the microbe, seeing the jig was up, committed suicide by jumping In the ink well. LIGHTNING IS FATAL TO SEVEN Bolts From Sky Blot Out Lives and Injure Others In and Near St. Louis.

MURDERED NATIONAL SOLONS P THEIR IRK FILE OUT OF WASHINGTON AS SIXTY-SECOND CONGRESS COMES TO AN END. , DEFICIENCY BILL AGREED TO Measure as Reported by Conferee of House Is Adopted by Senate and Signed by President Penroa Resolution Goes Through. Washington, D. C With members tired and peevish and Icbs than a majority in attendance In each houso ot congress, the second session of tho Sixty-second congress was ended at 4:30 p. m. August 26. The next ses sion will open In December, unless some great crisis should arise that would justify President Taft in calling n special session during the fall. Tired out from their all-night vigil and an gered by the action of the senate in delaying adjournment, only about 50 members of the house gathered on the last day out of the total of 390 to take part In the closing work and these were In fighting mood. Ignoring the chaplain's prayer for peace. Represen tative Focht, Republican of Pennsyl vania, got tha floor on personal priv ilege to reply to Representative Bur nett's criticism of an Immigration bill advocated by Focht. There was blood in Focht's eye when he characterized some of the statements by Burnett as "false" and "maliciously false." Speak er Clark Issued several warnings that more temperate language must be used until Garrett of Tennessee moved finally to have the whole matter stricken from the congressional rec ord. By agreement no action was taken on the immigration bill and Representative Carlln, Democrat of Virginia, made a demand for the pas sage by tho house of the senate reso lution for an extra month's pay for employes in the face of opposing Dem cratic caucus action. After causing cold chills by a threat to demand a quorum to suspend the rules, he was restrained by Underwood and Fltz-. gerald held the floor until adjournment Last Day In Senate. The end came in the senate amid profound peace, All the fight with which a number of senators bristled previously disappeared during the day and it was a comparltlvely easy mat ter for those whose duty it always is to "Ax things" to obtain an agreement to stop the filibustering and permit congress to get away. Realizing the impossibility ofdodging a vote on tho Penrose investigating resolution, those who secretly opposed it made the best of a bad situation and let it come to a vote. It was dismissed briefly, opposed by Bailey pnee more on constitutional grounds, and then adopted by a viva voce vote. With that portion of the filibuster over. Chairman Warren of the appro priations committee turned his atten tion to the general deficiency, the last of the great supply bills. The group of half a dozen senators, who had threatened to stay hero until the snow lies before they would yield to the house and re-enact the state claims the senate had inserted in this bill, thought better'of It after they had talked with their colleagues. Each of the group sang his swan song telling how just these claims were and how he yielded only because those whoso Items had been agreed upon ought not to suffer because a few could not ob tain fair treatment. One by one they withdrew their opposition and that filibuster was over. The deficiency bill as reported by the conferees was adopted, the house had its way and the laBt snag was removed from .the pathway of final adjournment. President Signs Bill. The president, smiling and happy, sat in his room signing belated bills and resolutions. The moment after he put his signature to the big appropria tion bill the committees of the two houses awaited upon him toK inform him that congress was ready to ad journ unless he had some other com munication to make. As a matter of fact the resolution to adjourn at 4:30 was agreed to before the president was notified. That made no difference to the president, for it was with every evidence of joy and satisfaction that he informed the committee he most certainly had nothing to communicate. Whereupon tho president, accom panied by his staff, was whirled away to the union station to the special car attached to the federal express, which took him to Beverly. The acting vice president wns sol 1 emnly thanked by the senate for his services. The gavel then tapped out the life of this session. Many Important appointments made by President Taft in the last few months were left unconfirmed, .Among I tho more Important are those of Judge I Richard E. Sloan of Arizona, Maj. Gen. W. W. Wltherspoon, Brig. Gen. John McClernand and Judge Clinton W. Howard of Washington state. No Sunday Mall Delivery, Washington, D.
