ASKED N
O MAN
TO CONTRIBUTE
Roosevelt Asserts He Never
Sought Campaign Funds.
MO PROMISES WERE MADE
Unphatieally Declares His Aides Never
Requested Favors In Considera-
tion of Campaign Donations.
Washington, Oct. B.—"I asked no
•Ban to contribute to the campaign
fund when I was elected president of
the United States and I wish to re
iterate that Mr. Bliss and Mr. Cortel
yeu both assured me that no promise
had been made as a return for any
sontribution.
"Neither they nor anyone else hav
lag authority asked me to act or re
frain from acting in any matter while
I was president, because any contribu
tion had been made or withheld.
"Gentlemen, could I put it more
sweepingly?"
In these words Colonel Theodore
Roosevelt summarized his testimony
before the Clapp senate committee
that is investigating campaign funds.
The colonel specifically denied that
he ever asked for contributions to his
1904 campaign fund or that he had
known of any contribution by J. P.
Morgan.
To these unequivocal statements
Colonel Roosevelt added again that he
had ordered the return to the Stand
ard Oil company of any contribution
It might have made ln 1904 that he
had been assnred by George B. Cortel
you "only yesterday" that he knew of
BO such contribution, and that he did
aot believe Cornelius N. Bliss had
ewer demanded a eontribution from
John D. Archbold or from any corpo
ration by any method of extortion.
Colonel Roosevelt did not deny that
sorporations had contributed to the
1904 campaign. He said his letters
and published statements had always
acknowledged that fact, but he speci
fied that no such contributions had
ever been obtained under any sugges
tion that the administration would re
ward the givers with special favors.
Forceful and Emphatic Witness.
The Progressive candidate for presi
dent was a forceful and emphatic wit
Bess. Although direct from a cam
paign tour of many weeks he appeared
In perfect health and his testimony
was punctuated by vigorous slaps up
on the arm of his chair and his knee.
For two hours he talked and was in
terrupted but half a dozen times with
questions.
Colonel Roosevelt's testimony bris
tled with characteristic statements.
He asserted that Senator Penrose
should lose his seat because of his
proved friendship for the Standard Oil
monopoly.
He demanded that the committee re
qnire proofs from the men who are
charging that the Roosevelt primary
eampaign this year cost more than
18,000,000.
Finally he requested the committee
not to confine itself exclusively to his
oampaign affairs, but to examine those
who had to do with the funds of other
candidates and who are now charging
that immense sums were and are be
ing spent on behalf of the Progressive
candidate.
Roosevelt sprung a sensation, when,
(B a voice that vibrated with emphasis,
he asserted that he had "never asked
Mr. Harriman, directly or indirectly,
for a dollar to help in the 1904 cam
paign or in any other."
MORGAN A WILLING WITNESS
Financier Tells of His Campaign Con
tributions.
Washington, Oct. 4.—J. Pierpont
Morgan proved a willing witness be
fore the Clapp committee investigat
ing campaign expenditures and testi
fied he had given $150,000 to the Re
publican campaign in 1904 and $30,000
to the Republican campaign in 1908.
In an hour's questioning Mr. Morgan
denied emphatically the charge by
Charles Edward Russell of New York
that President Roosevelt had once
telephoned "for a campaign contribu
tion declared he never had any com
munication with Colonel Roosevelt
and asserted that he knew of no con
ferences among financial men in 1904
or in 1908 to agree on supporting Re
publican or Democratic presidential
candidates.
It was Mr. Morgan's first appear
ance on the witness stand for many
years. He appeared willing to answer
fully all questions. He confirmed the
testimony of George R. Sheldon that
he had given $100,000 to the Republic
an national fund of 1904 and added
that he gave S.'JO.OOO to the so called
"Harriman" fund of $240,000 raised
for the New York state committee.
Mr. Morgan asserted no contribu
tion ever has been given by his firm
or himself with the idea of obtaining
any favors thereby. He was especial
ly interested in the 1904 campaign, he
said, solely for the welfare of the
country and the people at large. That
was the only interest, he said, that
had guided him in making contribu
tions to political parties.

GHOSTS OF THE LIVING.
A Case That Throws Light on tht
Problem of Apparitions.
It Is not nt all necessary to resort to
the supernatural as the only sutticieut
explanation of apparitions, ln truth.,
there Is one insurmountable obstacle
to regarding tbem as supernatur.il
manifestations, and that is the simplf
circumstance that the ghosts wear
clothes, it is quite conceivable that
there really may be ghosts of persous.
but nobody who gave the matter a sec
ond thought would contend for a mo
ment that there can be ghosts of
clothes. Nevertheless apparitions are
always clothed and sometimes ln gar
ments of such modern cut Oat they
were unknown at the time the person
seen as a phantom lived on earth.
Aside from this, there is the inter
esting and by no means unimportant
circumstance that houses are some
times haunted by apparitions not of
the dead, but of the living. I know
of one case In which a gentleman en
tering a drawing room at 4 ln the
afternoon saw Rested on the sofa a
young lady with "reddiRb gold" hair,
who appeared to be reading a book.
There were two other persons In the
room, one seated beside her on the
sofa, and the visitor was surprised to
find thnt they did not offer to intro
duce him to the young lady—did not.
in fact, seem to see her. Later guest
at week end party saw the same ap
parition in the same house, and it was
seen a third time by one of the serv
ants.
No light was thrown on the strange
affair until, a year afterward, the wife
of the son of the family arrived from
Australia to pay a first visit to her
husband's relatives and was iromedi
ately identified by the servant as the
figure she bad Reen. The two visitors
who also bad seen the apparition sub
sequently made the same identifica
tion.
Since It Is Incredible to suppose that
a person can be In two places at the
same time—so that a lady can be both
In Australia and In a house thousands
of miles from Australia—It Is a legiti
mate Inference that phantasms, wheth
er of the living or of the dead, are de
•old of objective reality, are, that Is
to say. always and only hallucinations.

NERVE WON HIM LIBERTY.
Quick Wit and Daring Ruse of a Rus
sian Revolutionist.
Nowhere outside of the pages of Ac
tion would we expect such an Incident
as the following from the personal
story of the Russian revolutionist Na
rodny: Narodny had just jumped from
a window to escape the police. "When
I scrambled to my feet I discovered
myself in the yard and among half a
dozen soldiers. I was without over
coat and hat—a very suspicious figure
—and. having neither. I could not es
cape even could I get hy the soldiers
who surrounded me," be said.
"I jerked a card from my pocket
to this day I do not know what it was
—and handed it to one of the soldiers
•Here Is my card.' I said rapidly. *I
am a member of the secret police. One
of these revolutionists Is trying to es
cape. I am after him. Quick! Give
me your coat and hatr
"He automatically obeyed. 1 slipped
on his coat and hat and to all appear
ances was a soldier of the czar. I
walked past the guarded gate of the
yard out Into the street Before me
were thousands of soldiers. I wi W my
friends being brought down from
hall and put into the black vans, about
which stood guards of Cossacks I
marched through my friends (all of
that group are in prison today sa*re
only myself and the friend who es
caped with me) with the air of a sol
dier on a very important message and
pressed on through the mass of other
soldiers that filled the street"
The Change of a Word.
"Spanking" did not suggest chastise
ment originally. It was unknown to
Johnson ln this sense. To him a
"spanker" meant "a person who takes
long steps with agility." Rapid mo
tion seems to be the root idea of the
word "spank." which Is not merely
representative of the sound of the act*
as "slap" and "smack" are The low
German "pakkern." or "spenkern." to
run and spring about quickly, Is close
to the original meaning: hence a
"spanking pace." a "spanking breeze"
and a "spanker." ln the sense of an
active and sturdy person.

COPPERPLATE ENGRAVING.
The Art Was Dissevered Through that
Merest Accident
Every one has noticed on his visiting
card the extremely deljcate lines of bis
name, and almost every one knows
that they are produced by printing
from an engraved copperplate. Like
many other things of use and beauty,
this art of copperplate engraving was
discovered through the merest acci
dent by the goldsmiths of Florence in
the fifteenth century.
It is a historical fact, however, that
one day an engraver on gold, wishing,
to take a proof of bis work, made the
usual sulphur cast and then filled up
fhe lines with lampblack, thus ena
bling him to see exactly bow his work
looked. While occupied In doing this
it occurred to him that possibly the
name results could be obtained by fill
ing up the original engraving with
lampblack instead of making an im
pression of it and filling up that
Struck with the idea, be put it into
practical use and, with a little damp
paper, succeeded In getting a fair im
pression from the engraving.
The discovery was communicated to
other workers in the art, and they
hailed it with joy. as it saved all the
arduous trouble of making sulphur
casts, but they never saw the full
value of the discovery, and consequent
ly the art of plate engraving lay for
almost a century before its true im
port was discovered and brought out
in all its great and beautiful results.
Today collectors of plate engravings
rave over the crude results of earlier
times and search the world for exam
ples of these early masters to add to
their collections. Many of these col
lections have been presented to mu
seums, where they may be seen and
appreciated by the people.

A Japanese Idea.
The late Mutsuhlto, emperor of Ja
pan, on an occasion shortly before his
death took a railway journey ln the
northern part of Japan and arrived at
his destination half an hour late on ac
count of a slight accident on the road.
Next day the manager of the road com
mitted suicide, giving as the reason
for his act the fact that his bad man
agement bad inconvenienced the em
peror. The case attracted a great deal
of attention, and some of the leading
men of Japan, commenting on the dead
man's act, criticised his point of view.
In the eyes of his fellow townsmen,
however, his deed was commendable,
for they erected a statue In bis honor
as an Ideal exponent of the Japanese
conception of loyalty.
