He was Mentioned about a special 820,030

he had ndrocofa bt hdw that fund wa
collected Or disbursed. , He believed E.
F. Green of Boston, who helped raise it,
could teu now it had boeri spent. No
record had been kept, but he was certain
the money had been spent in printing and
William Whitman, former president of
the association, ' then took the stand.
Whitman explained a 13,000 gift made id
8. N. D. North, secretary of the asso
elation lnl7 and a clerk to majority
members of the senate finance committee.
The gift was made after the Dtngley
bill passed, dOngress.
Many proihlnent wool manufacturer
and others not connected with the asso
ciation contributed to the fund.
Whitman was' asked about the 86,000
gift to North, an IncldentNrhtch attracted
nation-wide attention when It waa first
disclosed several years ago. He put the
gift In a letter to North, dated Boston,
September 27, 1897, signed by himself.
George flykes, Benjamin Phlpps, James
r. Hill Thipps, Jr., and Rufua Qroely. It
set out that at a meeting of a few mem
bers of the national association ; "unani
mous expression" developed in favor of
presenting to N.orth "some sub.
stantlal testimonial in recognition of
your pant services to the naeocnitlon and
the woolen industry of the country." It
then went on to' say that a draft for
$5,000 was enclosed? and concluded: "This
la a voluntary and cheerful expression of
their appreciation of your work and of
the high regard In which yotr-.are held."
"While I looked upon the presentation
of that sum to Mr. North as a proper
rtcognltlon of his services," said Whit
man, "no thought had ever entered Into
my mind before Mr. Phillips came to me
abQUt making such a presentation. When
Mr. North left the association later In
1905,jt made him another presentation In
recognition of his faithful work. It waa
in the form of a silver rvice."
Senator Walsh read into the records a
copy of what purported to be a letter
from North to Sereno Payne, under date
of December 3. IMS. It read:
