An Associated Press correspon
dent said: "The special committee of
the house appointed last summer to
investigate Senator Gore's charges
of attempted bribery in connection
with J. W. McMurray's Indian at
torney contracts in Oklahoma, made
its final report to the house tonight.
The majority of the committee finds
that Jake L. Hamon actually 'did,
about May 6, 1909, make an im
proper proposal to Senator Gore re
specting the McMurray contracts
and that about June 16, 1910, he
approached Representative Charles
F. Creager with an improper propo
sition on the same subject. The
committee finds no evidence, how
ever, to show that Hamon was act
ing by authority of or with the con
sent of McMurray.' On this ground
the committee exonerates McMur
ray from any connection with an at
tempt improperly to influence mem
bers of the house or senate. It finds,
however, that he used more than
'undue influence' to secure the sup
port of Chief Green McCurtain and
his son, D. C. McCurtain, in getting
these contracts by transferring a
contingent interest of $25,000 in
the contracts to D. C. McCurtain."
