WASHINGTON, Aug. 6.-Congresslonal
Investigation of Martin M. Mulhalls story
of his alleged lobbying activities for the
National Association ot Manufacturers
took on a dual aspect today, when the
special house committee began grinding
on the thousands of letters already in
troduced beforo the senate committee and
prepared to cross-examine Mulhall on his
claims of Influence with various repre
sentatives. The first part of the day
was taken up with preliminary testi
mony of Louis Belbold of the New York
The senate committee having finished
with Mulhall, began hearing some of the
men referrod to In his correspondence.
Former Senator Korakcr was the first
and he generally denied Mulhall's claims
of Influence with him.
Chairman Overman today notified for
mer Representative Charles K. Llttlefletd
of Maine that the committee would be
glad to hear any statement he desired to
moke. Mulhall claimed him as one of
the friends of the National Association
of Manufacturers In many fights before
committees of congress. Llttloflold re
cently wrote Honator Overman from
Switzerland, asking for a hearing and de
nying many ot Mulhall's charges.
Foraker explained his connection with
tho sale ot Union Pacific to a reorganiza
tion committee In 1697, which was brought
into tho lobby investigation by David
Lamar testified that Foraker, through
Influence In Washington, took a leading
part In the deal at Lamar's solicitation.
Foraker testified that at the time ot
reorganisation the Union Pacific owed
the United States 130,000,000 and one pro
posal was that tho government received
enly part of that sum. Foraker swore that
he did not figure In the case except In
an effort to seo that the government
got the whole sum.
Foraker said ho had known Mulhall
since 1883, when he (Foraker) was a can
didate for governor of Ohio. Ho did not
know how active Mulhall was In his
behalf in that campaign.
"I don't remember that I ever asked
him to work for me, and I don't know
that I asked him not to," he sold. Foraker
denied that lie ever favored any legisla
tion wanted by the National Association
of Manufacturers or that he talked with
Mulhall about legislation in Washington.
Hp said he frequently talked to men in
the capital, however, In those days about
"Uofore wo got so good as we are n,ow,"
he said, "I thought It was all right to
answer questions. Ot course, I never had
any Idea that these conversations were
to be made the basis of reports by some
Foraker denied Mulhall's testimony ot
a conference at which many leading re
publicans opposed to the nomination of
Taft gathered at Foraker's house to dis
cuss plans for concerted oposltlon,
"No such conference was held at my
house or elsewhere," said Foraker.

New Tork World, as the first witness.
Identifying published statements and oth
erwise laying foundations for the cross
examination of former Representative
McDermott ot Illinois, one of the mem
bers of tho house named in Multiall'r
charges, was represented by counsel.
Discussing the life of public men classi
fied as those whom tho National Asso
ciation of Manufacturers "had no diffi
culty in reaching and influencing for
ouslncss, political or sympathetlo reso
lutions," Mr. Seibold testified he had no
purpose of Implying "any moral obliquity
or legislative impropriety" to tho men
"The basts for this list," said Mr. Set
bold, "was the Mulhall letters, his per
sonal narrative and statements he mad
He told tho committee that 4QQ or 500

ment of policy or further tep will ba ,
taken by President Wilton in the Mexican
situation until former Governor Ilnd of
Minnesota, appointed ambassador to
Mexico to succeed Henry Lane Wilson,
resigned, arrives in Mexico City and
familiarizes himself with condltons.
This was made clear at the Whits Houso
today. Mr. Llnd carries Instructions to
talk Informally with prominent Mexicans. ,
Administration official indicated that 1
no steps toward a mediation policy would 1
be attempted until after Mr. Und had
sounded out sentiment In Mexico and '
determined whether the assistance of the ,
United States in adjusting the dispute
would be received
Mr. Und will Inform inquirers on
authority of President Wilson that only
the government constitutionally set up
will ba recognized by the United Htaics
This wilt Involve the resignation of Pro
visional President Huerta in favor of the
provisional president selected by the
Mexican factions, the neW president to be
first appointed minister of foreign rela
tions In conformity with the law of suc
cession In. Mexico.
It was pointed out In administration
circles that white Mr. Llnd's position

ho will act in reality as an unofficial
ambassador, to be named ambassador
when a stable government is organised
and recognition is extended by tho United
Just what part Mr. Llnd will take in
peace negotiations is not made clear here,
but there is every reason to believe that
he will merely represent the views ot
the American government to those who
consult him and will not directly inter
fere with the progress of events unless
the Washington government finally de
cides to mediate the dispute.
Secretary Bryan said that Mr. Llnd
would take a ship from New Orleans if
ho could savo time by such a route and
otherwise would go to Galveston, Tex.,
to embark on the New Hampshire.
