Chauncoy M. Depew, who is said to
have given $50,000 to the Harriman
fund in 1904; former Senator Nathan
u. Scott, connected with the republi
can national committee that year, and
Matthew Hale, Roosevelt leader in
Massachusetts last spring.
The controversy surrounding an
alleged demand of J. P. Morgan for
an additional campaign fund in 1904
was partially cleared up today by
Charles Edward Russell; socialist
candidate for governor of New York,
and Judson C. Welliver, a Washing
ton newspaper man.
Mr. Russell had been quoted as
saying Wayne MacVeagh, attorney
goneral under President Cleveland,
was in Mr. Morgan's office when the
latter was called to the telenhnnR
and asked for the contribution. Mr.
I Russell told the committee, under
pressure, that Mr. Welliver, then a
magazine writer, had been his in
formant. .Mr. Welliver, sitting at the
newspaper table in tho committee
room, afaked permission to take the
witness stand after Mr. Russell concluded.
He said Mr. MacVeagh told him
in 1910 that Mr. Morgan had been
called to the telephone in 1904, as
stated, but that it was B. H. Harri
man who asked for the contribution.
Mr. Welliver testified that Mr. Mac
Veagh told him Mr. Morgan said Mr.
Harriman was asking for more cam
paign money, as tho result of his
visit to President Roosevelt In
Ogden L. Mills, of New York, treas
urer of the republican committee of
New York county, denied wholesale
charges f fraud that had been made
by Roosevelt leaders in New York.
He presented to the committee
records from different election dis
tricts, which he said he thought in
dicated fraud on the part of many
of tho workers for the Roosevelt
An account of the receipts and ex
penditures of Senator La Follette's

Before the campaign fund investi
gating committee, Wayne MacVeagh
of Philadelphia, formerly attorney
general, testified concerning a tele
phone conversation H. McK. Twomb
ley had with the late E. H. Harriman
in 1904. Mr. MacVeach said rhnr
while In Mr. Twombley's office in
1904 the latter had a telephone talk,
and told him that it was with Mr.
Harriman; that Mr. Harriman had
said he had been to the White Ho-iso;
that President Roosevelt had ex
pressed anxiety that a $240,000 fund
be raised, and that Mr. Harriman
had agreed to it. Charles A. Peabody,
president of the Mutual Life Insur
ance company, Mr. MacVeagh said,

Russell, socialist candidate for gov
ernor of New York, and Judson C.
Welliver, a newspaper men, to the
effect that J. P. Morgan had received
asimilar telephone call from the
White House. Mr. MacVeagh ad
mitted having told Welliver about the

gan was concerned. Mr. MacVeagh
testified that he had been given to

tions in 1904 Mr. Twombley repre
sented the Vanderbilt railroad in

steel interests and John D. Archbold
and the late H. H. Rogers Standard
Charles Edward Russell, socialist
candidate for governor of New York
and J. C. Welliver, a writer, told
Lueir versions or tne story. It sub
stantially was that Mr. MacVeagh
had been present in Mr. Morgan's
office when such a conversation took
"I never saw Mr. Morgan use the
telephone or knev of his helng
called to the telephone," he said.
Mr. Morgan had never conversed
with him on the subject of crmpaign
Mr. MacVeagh said he did not wish
to say he had not givtm Mr. Welliver
