Coxmick of Chicago stirred up a sen
sation before the Clapp committee to
day when he read a prepared state
ment touching upon (he attempted as
sasination of Coionel Roosevelt, and
declaring it had been Incited by "false
hoods of character assasins and liars
like Charles II. Hilles.
"It is difficult for an ordinary raau
in the compass of ordinary language
to compete with testimony of charac
ter assassins and liars like Hilles,
men who, by faJsehoods, Incite wea
minded men to actual assassinations,"
was the passage that brought a
stormy protest from the committee in
which Clapp joined.
McOormick argued heatedly that his
statement was admissible evidence
while Oliver and Clapp declined to al
low McCormlck to read.it and denianr
ed that he withdraw hih words. The
statement finally was admitted to the
record without being read from th
prepared copy. The reference to the
attempt on Roosevelt's life was inci
dental to McCormick's general state
ment of the campaign expenaea of the
progressive party In Illinois.
"As far as I know," McCormlck said,
"the cost of the campaign in Illinois
was defrayed by Chauncey Pewey and
myself. I gave Dewey $16,000. In ad
dition I gave not to exceed 110,000
toward the maintenance of tne Chica
