Of The Fat Contributors
National Committee Treasurer Of I90S Testifies Be Had
Seen .The Amounts On A List Shown Dim By
Cornelias. Bliss, Senlor-Also Declares 73 Per
Cent 01 Roosevelt Fund Was Made By
Washington, Oct 3. George R.
Bhelton, treasurer flf the Republican
national committee In 1808, testified
before the Clapp Investigating com
mittee that In 1904, when Theodore
Roosevelt ran for president, the
Standard Oil company under John D.
Archbold's name contributed $100,
00;; J. P. Morgan ft Company, $ 100,
OOQ; II. C. Krlck, f 100,000, and George
J. Gould, $100,000.
Sheldon said he had seen tho
amounts on a list shown him by Cor
nelius Bliss, Sr., before the tatter's
death. This list Is supposed to have
been anions those destroyed by Bliss
during his lost Illness.
Mr. Sheldon expressed, bis belief
that the corporations' contributed
73 per cent of the Roosevelt cam
paign fund In 1904.
One million eight hundred thou
sand dollars was the approximate
amount mentioned by' Sheldon aB the
total of the 1904 contributions. '
This Is the first corroborative evi
dence that has been obtained by the
senate committee in support of the
Penrose chnrges since John D. 'Arch
bold testified.
Mr. Sheldon added another interest
ing item when, bo testified that Mr.
- Bliss statement of the 1904 campaign
receipts and expenditures, which was
audited by Mr. Sheldon, did not Indi
cate in any way that the $100,000 of
Standard Oil money ever was re
turned. Senator Dixon on Stand.
Joseph M. Dixon, Mr. Roosevelt's
campaign manager, was another wit
ness examined by the committee. Ho
proved to be the most obstreperous,
snd the committee spent several
tours '.vrangllug with him in a most
undignified manner.
Only two facts of large importance
were brought out in the course of
Dixon's testimony. One was that he
personally had raised $95,000 in the
Roosevelt pre-conventlon campaign.
This was In addition to the $141,000
collected by the Roosevelt campaign
committee treasurer, the $52,000
raised in New York county and 'the
$130,000 expended by William Fllnn
in Pennsylvania. Mr. Dixon said
that George W. Perkins, Frank A.
Munaey and Dan R. Hanna each con
tributed $25,000 to his fund of
Dixon's Allegations.
Dixon also declared that he had
been reliably Informed that Thomas
y. Ryan and A. H. Plant, auditor of
the Southern railway, had contrib
uted heavily to Oscar W. Under
wood's campaign; that Joseph X. Da
vis spent $38,000 in Governor Wil
son's pre-conventlon campaign; that
Charles P. Taft had spent $100,000
for his brother, the president, and
' that "leading financiers of New York

Actual Violence Reported In the
Balkan Imbroglio.
London, Oct. 3. Actual violence In
the Balkan Imbroglio has com
menced, according to word received
here from Belgrade. A Turkish pa
trol of 50 Moldlcrs devastated the
Servian frontier town of Ruska after
firing volley after volley Into the
town. The Inhabitants fled.
With the curt rcfueal by tho Tur
kish cabinet to surrender the ship
ment of Servian war ammunition
which was seized by Turkey while
passing through, the impression here
that it will take the nnlted efforts of
the powers to prevent war is growing
in strength. Turkey added to the
list of Injuries which Greece, I-Ionte-negro,
Bulgaria and Servla have sus
tained by detaining 52 Greek ships
which were in her ports. These ves
sels are being held so that In cose
war is declared the Turkish govern
ment can use them as Turkish trans
ports. The Intcr-Ilalkan peninsula is be
ing turned into a war camp, and a
million or more troops are rapidly
assembling there. Bulgaria, Servla,
Greece and. Montenegro are united in
this mobilization, and the desired ef
fect Is a show of war strength bo
that Turkey will be awed.
The four states in the new Balkan
alliance nrc working In harmony In
this matter, and all the troopB will
be spread along the frontier. For tho
first time these states are acting to
gether against the common enemy.
The uniformed armies being sent to
the front number 400,000. Of these
Bulgaria sends 250,000, Servla 110,
000, Montenegro 50,000' and Greece
60,000. These countries all have uni
versal "military service," so the men
will be well trained and armed.
