Muskogee, Okla., Aug. 6 With Unit
ed States Senator Thomas P. Gore re
asserting his charge that he had been
offered a bribe of $25,000 or $50,0u0 to
influence his action in cougress, and
with Jake L. IJanion. accused by the
senator of having offered the bribe,
denying be had ever done any such
thing, the investigation of the Okla
homa Indian lands deal by a commit
tee of the house of representatives
simmered down to a mass of denials.
For four hours Hamon, former chair
man of the Oklahoma Republican
state committee, entered a continuous
series of denials relative to his alleged
relation with what are known as the
McMurray contracts by which, accord
ing to Senator Gore, $3,000,000, or 10
per cent of $30,000,000 to be realized
from the sale of Indian lands to a New
York syndicate, was to be diverted
from the Indians in the shape of "at
Hamon also answered Congressman
O. B. Creager with a denial. Replying
to the congressman's charge that Ha
mon had suggested that an "interest"
in the contracts might be available
to the congressman ' if the latter
helped remove opposition to congres
sional approval, Hamon testified:
Friends Tells of Charges Made.
"It was Just this way I was down
here in Oklahoma attending to my
.business, when a friend told me Crea

improperly in regard to the McMurray
contracts. So I hopped on a train and
went to Washington. I got bold of
Creager and said, 'Look here, you
know I never said any such thing.'
"Then Creager said: 'Now, Jake,
that certainly was the Impression I
got that you suggested 1 might get
an interest in the contracts.' I re
plied, 'You certainly are mistaken.'
Then Creager said: 'Well, if you said
I shouldn't, I won't go before that in

Among Hamon's denials were the
following: He denied that he ever at
any time had been closeted with Sen

Washington to urge the approval of

mentioned Vice President Sherman,
Senator Charles Curtis of Kansas or
Congressman B. S. McGulre of Okla

He denied he had ever spoken of a

ing his meeting with Jake L. Hamon,
charged by Senator T. P. Gore with
being a promoter for J. F. McMurray,
who held contracts for the Rale of the
land on a Id per cent basis.
"What was the length of time of the
conversation you said you had with
Hamon at the hotel In Washington
and at which he said you might ob

you helped put them through?" asked
C. B. Ames, counsel for McMurray.
"About two minutes," said Creager.

ANSWER TO CLAIM
FOR WILSON ESTATE
Miii'nistrcfor Den es HI! Stats
mauls of Tens Claimant.
Tecumseh, Neb., Aug. 6. A. C. Sul
livan, an administrator of the estate
of Mrs. Ellen Wilson of this city, de
ceased, has filed his answer to tho
petition of John Wilson, Jr., of Hous
ton, Tex., in the probate court The
administrator alleges that he does not
know that the claims, as set up in the
petition of Mr. Wilson, are true, and
in the absence of such knowledge he
denies each and every one of them.
He asks that Judgment In the matter
may be entered as 13 found by the
facts. This is simply a stand by law
that the administrator would natural
ly have to take, and It 13 not pre
tended to be a fight against the Texas
man In case he can establish his iden
tity beyond question. Inasmuch as the
date of five years from the death of
Mrs. Wilson, July 22, Is past, the claim
of -any other claimant of the estate
will not be heard, In case one Is made.

j In Radium j
SINCE the death of Frofessor
Curie the world has awakened
to the fact that Mme. Curie Is
an even greater scientist than
her husband. In the strange partner
ship that they formed she wan the
chief and be the helper. Working
alone, she has gone on making even
more wonderful discoveries concerning
radium and the mysterious elements
connected with It than when her hus
band was alive. His death was pe
culiarly tragic. Walking along one
day absorbed In scientific speculations,
he was run over by an omnibus In the
street and killed. One would have ex
pected Mme. Curie to be prostrated by
such an Irreparable loss, but the day
after her husband's funeral she was
busily pursuing her researches Into the
newly discovered emanations of ra
dium. She has been accustomed to suffer
ing from her childhood. She has the
saddest face conceivable, ao sad that
no fresh emotion of sadness can ever
disturb it. '
ner philosophic calm Is wonderful
and never deserts her. One day her
young servant run into her laboratory,
"Madam, I have swallowed a pin!"
"There, there; don't cry," said
nindaiu soothingly. "Here Is another
you may have."
It Is Interesting to know Mme. Cu
rie's opinion ou the two most obscure
points In the study of radium.
"1 think radium is nu unstable ele
ment composed of atoms which under
go spontaneous transformation and
that helium l one of the products of
"Riullum is a distinct chemical ele
ment in the sense attached to tho word
One of Mine. Curie's recent achieve
ments has been to explain the true na
ture of polonium, a strange metal
which she discovered years ago.
Polonium is about 0.000 times more
rare than nidi u 111, and It Is doubted
whether there is more than a pound of
pure radium In the whole world. Po
lonium loses weight 11 ud disappears In
140 days, while nullum will take thou
sands of years to be exhausted. Po
lonium is an active germicide and de
stroys certalu types of ulcers.
Polonium Is oue of a series of allied
metals. Uranium decomposes Into Ioni
um. Ionium decomposes and forms
radium. Radium gives off emanations
which change from one substance to
another, and one of those Is polonium.
It Is suggested that lead may be the
relic of radium left after thousands of
year of uctlvlty.
Polonium would work miracles If
there were ejiougu of It. A grain of
polonium would heat 100.000.000,000
gallons of water two degrees. An
ounce would tow n battleship 2..r00,000
miles. The same qunuiliy would drive
a fifty-six horsepower automobile 400
times around the world at a rate of
thirty miles an hour.
Radium and polonium are produced
from pitchblende, mineral which wns
formerly thrown a way after It had
been used for the extraction of urani
um. From a ton of pitchblende al
most enough radium to cover the point
of a plri 1 produced. About one-five
hundredths of that quantity of poloni
um Is produced from the same amount
Experiments Indicate that polonium
may be used to cure blindness in cases
where It Is due to failure of the optic
nerve. Its heat and power of penetrn
tlon appear to pass through the eyebull
and stimulate the weakened nerve.
Radium has already own used lu cer
tain cases of cataract to decide wheth
er an operuilou will bo useful In re
Mme. Curio has Iveii the Hclentlflc
world Its first knowledge of the nuturo
of an atom. She ha shown that the
atom Is an extremely complex system
