Hamon approached him on behalf of J. F. McMurray with | an offer pf a bribe to promote a scheme whereby $3,000,000 would bo paid In the form of "attorneys' fees" out of money realized from the sale of Indian lands.

Mr. Hamon said he was ready to go on the stand. In an Interview Mr. Hamon denied ever offering a bribe and that he ever had mentioned Vice President Sherman or Senator Charles Curtis of Kansas as having been "in terested" in the McMurray contracts "I am ready to toll all I know , " said Mr. Hamon. "When that Is told ray position , I am sure , will be clear of reproach. " Besides Mr. Hamon , another Impor tant witness to bo hoard Is Congress man B. S. McGulre of Oklahoma , who was charged by Congressman Creage with having occupied the same suite of rooms with McMurray at a hote In Washington , and by Senator Gore with having been Interested In the approval of the contracts for the sale of the 450,000 acres of coal lands on n 10 percent attorneys' fee basis.

This con ference with President Taft should alone set at rest any further consid eration of the vague charges made by Senator Gore In this matter. We have proof beyond the shadow of a doubt as to our standing In this case. " P IMS I TO SEE PARENTS Formei * vfc'i Pugilist is About Ready fo , ? % < n Last Fight.

And Farmers Do Not Mortgage Homes to Buy Cars. Oberlin , Kan. , Aug. 5. "I do not know of one instance in the western . mrt of Kansas where either a resident j. of the towns or a farmer has mort gaged his home to buy n motor car 'or pleasure. I believe , so far as west ern Kansas is concerned , this talk of extravagance In buying motor cars Is very much overdrawn. Our farmers who have bought motor cars have been amply able to do so. They bought : hem because they needed them In their business , and not as one spends money extravagantly for pleasure. " This Is the opinion of H. O. Douglas s , vice president of the Oborllu National bank , with regard to the motor car situation , after reading many news paper articles alleging an extravagance lg gance in the purchase of motor cars and that homes are being mortgaged to pay for them. A careful Inquiry develops the facts to be practically as Mr. Douglas says. Farmers living far from towns , who own motor cars , say they have carefully compared the cost of the car , the up-keep , the interest earning capacity of the money Invest ed and the value of the time used with the same figures for horses and that the motor car fully justifies Itself. Besides , by having a car they can save and rest their teams for the heavy work of the farm. A man living fifteen miles from the county seat and desiring to bring his family in to an entertainment or who needs to make a quick trip to town for , required repairs for his machinery considers that he is saving money by using a car. This trip can be made 1 with a car to town and back without hurrying In an hour. To drive to town and back with a team would require nearly an entire day's time. Successful farmers say that theli time is as valuable In their line ol business as any other business man's time. Investigation shows it is the successful and prosperous farmer * who can afford them who buy motoi cars , and not the men who cannot af ford them. ARCHIE ROOSEVELT IN DAKOTA Deadwood , S.

TRIPP CO , WOMAN WINS Right of Northwestern to Build Across Her Claim is.Disapproved. Yankton , S. D. , Aug. 5. After hav ing had the case under advisement for fourteen days , Judge R. B. Tripp has handed down a decision in the im portant case of Eleanor Salee of Tripp county , versus the Northwestern Rail road company , In which the court sus tains the plaintiff and an injunction ordered restraining the said road from continuing its construction work across the claim of the plaintiff , who holds claim No. 4 In the Tripp county drawing. The case is one of much Importance and the decision is far reaching , as it gives other homestead ers the same rights under the same conditions Miss Salee has successfully contested. The question Involved was somewhat complicated and turned on an entryman on public land giving a deed to the Northwestern for right-of- way while a contest was pending against the entryman on his filing. The court held that inasmuch as the railroad had failed to file an approved profile of Its road In the local land office before the road was constructed it acquired no right-of-way under a deed given It by an entryman named Schneider , whose claim was contested by Miss Salee , who Is a very popular settler of Tripp county.

George Har vey , editor of the North American Re view. The Initiation took place In the of flee of the Outlook , of which Colonel Roosevelt Is contributing editor , and the new member , while not actually present , was put through with much vim and considerable bounce. While Colonel Roosevelt did not use the "shorter and uglier word" In con nection with Colonel Harvey , his Ian guage was distinctly blunt and plain. The reopening of the club , which was closed Just prior to Mr. Reese velt's departure for Africa , was brought about through an article In the August number of the North American Review entitled "Is Rooso- f volt an Asset or a Liability ? " which was signed "Tho Editor.

" When Colonel Roosevelt saw this his eyes snapped and his teeth click ed as ho almost shouted : "That Is n simple falsehood ; I have never said anything like that. " It was pointed out to Colonel Rooso- velt that Colonel Harvey evidently e- meant to convoy the impression that as ho would be forced to accept the noml nation. By this time Colonel Reese < of volt appeared extremely angry ; and again repeating that ho had novoi lu- made the statement attributed to him ed made a rush for the waiting elevator to "it may be unseemly for mo to en gage with JIr.

He made a tour of Europe after the placing of the five million dollar bond Issue and felt the pulse of Investors there. While he Is cheerful and hopeful - ful over the future of American se curities abroad , he declared that this country was losing millions of dollars of 'io inoiiL of European Investors because of the uncertainty of condi tions here. Money that would ordi narily come into the market here through the buying of our bonds and stocks is finding Its way Into South American countries , particularly Ar gentina. ' "The investor seems afraid of con ditions here , " he continued. "No one seems to know what Is going to hap pen next. There have been so many changes In the laws , so imny Investl- gallons , that the European Investors have become wary. " "The charge has been made that there has been too much politics , " he was told. "I guess that's part of the trou ble. " he replied , "because there Is no denying that this Is a wonderful coun try , a great portion of It being unde 1 veloped , especially the great south west. "The railroads will have to be Riven encouragement , however , to go ahead. For the railroad Is the agent of pros ' perity and development goes with It. Give the railroads a chance to make a good rate , so that their earnings will be ample to pay the Investors and 1 this country will see the * cjraacost. pros ' perity It has ever known. I think I 1 cn say without contradiction that the railroad companies in the United ' States are prepared to spend MO mil lion dollars In the next ton years If the officials of the railroads are sat isfied that they will not be held hack : by legislation that Is founded on agi tation rather than on good , sound law.
