"WASHINGTON. Sept 80.-The senate
subcommittee renewal of the Investiga
tion of presidential campaign contribu
tions today marked the beginning- oi
hearings that are expected to bring
many of the leading financiers, politicians
and candidates to the witness stand dur
ing' the next two months.
COlonel Theodore Roosevelt and J.
Plerpont Morgan are scheduled to step
, Into the spotlight later this week, the
financier appearing Thursday and Colonel
Roosevelt on Friday.
Senators Clapp, Oliver, Paynter and
Pomerene were present when the com
mittee went Into session. Mr. Bliss was
. the first witness. He said he was an
executor of his father's estate and had
sole custody of his father's papers.
''Have you found any papers bearing
on the campaign funds handled by your
father?" asked Chairman Clapp.
Mr. Bliss placed In evidence a report
from the aduitor who examined his
father's accounts when he resigned as
treasurer or. me repuoucan commiuee.
He said the records did not show any
contribution by John D. Archbold or the
Standard Oil company. Members of the
committee examined the records.
No name3 of contributors to the 1904
campaign fund appear in the records.
Mr. Bliss was asked to read his father's
letter of resignation to Harry 8. New,
which also had been placed In evidence.
The letter set forth the late Mr. Bliss
had held as confidential the names of
contributors and the amount of their con
tributions in the "last four presidential
campaigns in which I have aoted as
"I have persistently refused to make
these reports public," the letter read,
"because I regard the relations of campaign-
contributions to party' committees
as confidential. I believe the right to re
fuse to make public these contributions
is as sacred as the rfcht of a man to
cast a secret ballot ln-fhe election."
Fend About Three Millions.
The letter added that the republican
receipts in 1300 had been "a trifle below
13,000,000;" in 1896, $3,500,000, and in 1892,
The witness said he had discovered
three other letters of a "personal and
more or less intimate nature." These he
handed to Chairman Clapp. One was from
President Roosevelt, another from Wil
liam H. Taft as secretary of war.
The committee members read the letters
Senator Clapp had them placed in the

vulged at the time. Mr. Bliss said he
bad no other documents and no recollec
tion of any conversations with his father
which would throw any light on the
subjects under investigation.
Later, however, the contents of two of
the letters became known. That from
Secretary Taft, written May 6, 1904, urged
the late Mr. Bliss to take the chair
manship, Baying President Roosevelt "was
most anxious" for it and adding that as
chairman Mr. Bliss would "secure the
confidence of these from whom contribu
tions may be expected." The letter from
President Roosevelt, dated the same, also
urged him to take the place.
Letter From Roosevelt.
While the committee at first seemed
confused as to the disposition of the
three letters to Mr. Bliss put in evidence
the substantial portions of them were
finally made public. Two were of no par
ticular import, but the third, dated March
26, 1906, written by President Roosevelt
from the White House to Mr. Bliss In
New York made specific denial that he
had ever been Influenced for or against
eny persons or interests as a result of
contributions to the 1904 campaign.
President Roosevelt wrote that he be
lieved the 1904 campaign fund had been
only half as big as the republican fund
In 1896 or the democratic fund in 1892.
"This, however, , is aside from the
point," he continued, "which Is that the
money was spent legitimately In legit
imate campaign expenses and that no
pretense has been made to the contrary,
and that It was contributed freely by
men who did not ask and who never
have received one particle of considera
tion in the shape of legislation or ad
ministrative act as a reward for. having
so contributed; exactly as no man has
been In any way discriminated against
for "not having contributed.

Gifford Pinchot, president of the Na

head of the United States forestry de
partment, outlined briefly what he and
similar thinkers must do at the next
session of congress for "all the American
people" in a short talk before the Uni
versity club Monday noon.
Ho said that several big fights were
destined for the next congressional ses
sion snd that the people must combine
against a certain clique In the national
house end senate which represents the
He and the officials of the administra
tion In which he took part he declared
had fought against the few in behalf of
all the people In brlrming about acts of
legislation favoring conservation, but
that the fight will have to be repeated
since the Interests are coming 'back at
"The first big fight we will have,"
said he, "will be against the proposition
of states rights in the matter of forest
conservation. Representatives of the In
terests have already notified us that they
intend to take conservation away from
the national government and place It
with the Individual states. This will give
the Interests a greater chance to hold
within the hands of the few the resources
which rightfully belong ' to everybody.
They can better handle the states in
dividually than as a nation.
"The second big fight we will have is
to be to get in control of streams and
water power and to make legislation and
appropriations for the prevention of
floods. Water power will some day be
come one of the greatest resource! the
American people have. It already has

Governor Hadley In his speech Saturday
night failed to indorse President Taft
Lahlv said he signed the agreement with
the understanding that if all the elect
ors signed it, Governor Hadley would
come out openly for President Taft and
advocate his election.
Louis" P. Aloe, another elector, admit
ted signing the agreement under the same
conditions as Lahlv signed. At the' re
publican statu headquarters, where the
agreement was signed, It was said today
mat it was not known how many electors
signed the agreement. The v St Loula
electors understood that Governor Had
ley was to be the compromise candidate
for president In event President Taft
could not be elected, but that there was
nothing In the agreement to that effect.
Says Project Was Dropped.
Governor Hadley over the telephone
said the project to get electors' signatures
to an agreement was started two months
ago, and dropped because it was con-
idered not feasible.
"Lster State Chairman Elvlns heard of
the plan and thought It might be put
through," said Governor Hadley. "I
gave him a copy of the original agree
ment, but had nothing to do with getting
signatures to it. Elvlns, after getting a
few signatures, dropped the project He
told me that he did not think the plan
would work out. He abandoned it a
"I never gave anybody to understand

Hadley Talks of His Speech.
Governor Herbert S. Hadley of Mis
souri said today over the telephone from
Jefferson City that in his attitude toward
President Taft he stood exactly where
his speech of Saturday night showed
him to stand.
Regarding the telegram which Otto F.
Stifel, a member ot the advisory commit
tee of the republican national commit
tee, sent to President Taft, stating that
Governor Hadley had Indorsed President
Taft in his speech, the governor said:
"It is silly to undertake to construe my
words In the way Mr. Stifel Is said to
have done. There can be no misunder
standing of my position, if the public will
take my Saturday night's speech as a
statement of my position and my pur
pose." The governor specified particularly in
reference to his speech that the para
graphs In which he said that President
Taft, if he should protnlse to use his
influence for the correction of bosslsm
In southern states and tor the enactment
of presidential primary laws, would de
sorve support and that if he did not try

not deserve support.
