' Meeting of Foil Republican
"OLD GUARD" IS ACCUSED
New York, Jan. 16,-George W.
Perkins and Everett Colby in a signed
statement today on behalf of progres
sive demanded a meeting of the en
tire republican national committee for
the purpose, in effect, of rescinding the
action taken yesterday by the repub

sives to bring about harmony with
The statement by Mr. Perkins and
Mr. Colby charges the "old guard"
with taking over control of the re
publican party. .
"The states lost to Mr. Hughes last
fall," it said in part, "were lost pri
marily because independent voters be
lieved that behind the cloak of his
name the machine leaders, who were
in control of the organization of the
republican party, would handle it
against the public interest and for
non-public ends. The action yester
day absolutely justifies these fears."

asserted his sense of duty. When
Pangborn went to Johnson, Vt, a
year or so later young , Dewey in
sisted upon following him to that city.
Student of Naval Academy. ,
At the age of IS George Dewey was
tent to the Norwich Military academy
at Norwich, Vt His father wished
him to choose a military career, but
George preferred the . sea and was
happy when he received an appoint
ment for Annapolis through Senator
Foote, Dewey entered the das of '54
it the naval academy at the age of 17
and toon distinguished himself not
only by hit prowess in all athletic
sports, but also by the promptness
with which he resented insults from
other cadets. He graduated the fifth
fat hit clast of sixty-five, in 1858.
- Dewey was at his home in Mont
pelier when Fort Sumter was fired
upon, One week later he obtained his
commission as a lieutenant' and was
ordered on the steam sloop Mississippi
of the west gulf squadron. Admiral
Farragut raised his flag over this fleet
in February, 1862, and it was the privi
lege of Lieutenant Dewey to serve and
distinguish himself under the eyes of
the famous naval hero, Admiral Far
ragut conceived a great liking for the
dashing and yet coolheaded young of
ficer and distinguished him by making
him first lieutenant of one of the gun
boats which Farragut used as a dis
patch boat, A ; . ;T

' After the war Lieutenant Command
er Dewey terved two 'years on the
European squadron and after hit re
turn, while on-duty at Portsmouth,

daughter of Governor Goodwin of
New Hampshire, She died in 1872,
shortly after the birth of a son. who
became a merchant in New York.
In 1868 George Dewey was at
tached to the Naval academy and in
187a he received his first command,
that of the I Narransett. He was
made commander in 1875 and was as
signed to the lighthouse board. Next
he was placed in command of the
JUniata of the Asiatic squadron and
in 1884 he wat made captain and
placed in command of the Dolphin.
He wat made commodore on Feb
ruary 9, 1896. i
Battle Of Manila Bay.
At the beginning of the war with
Spain Dewey was in command of the
American fleet which bad previously
been congregated at Hong Kong,
China. : As soon as hostilities were
known to have broken out, Dewey
proceeded with his fleet to Manila,
the capital of the Philippine Islands.
On Sunday morning. May 1, 1898, be
fore dawn of day, Dewey s fleet sailed
past the outer forts and regardless of
submarine mines, into the outer har
bor, and at sunrise engaged the Span
ish fleet of warships, commanded by
Admiral Montojo. Before noon the
Spanish fleet was entirely destroyed,
with a loss of 412 officers and men
killed or wounded, while on the
American tide none were killed and
but seven men wounded. When the
official report of the battle reached
Washington, Commodore Dewey was
at once made a rear admiral and con
gress voted him a resolution of
thanks. He was further honored by
receiving the degree of LL.D. by the
University of Pennsylvania and by
Princeton university, and by the pres
entation to him, in the following year,
of a beautiful house in Washington,
which he in turn presented to his
second wife, formerly Mrs. Mildred
McLean Hazen. In 1899 he was made
a member of the Philippine commis
sion and promoted to the rank of ad
miral. Later he became chief of the
general board of the navy. .

perjury," , Lawson dramatically de
clared to the committee; Tm guilty
of foul perjury and unfit to be any
where outside the bars of a prison."
"I was very much worked up about
the Henry statement," Lawson con
tinued. "We had agreed on one. He
had said 'You word it.' I did, and
he said it was fair and gave both
sides and we shook hands on it.
When I read his statement it appeared
unfair. It looked as though in the
three hours and a quarter he had
asked me over and over again to give
him names and that 1 had tailed.
He wanted Cosgrave and Kidgway
to hear his story, he said, because they
were men of long experience in
handling investigations and he de
sired to know whether they thought
he should drop the entire affair or if
he owed it to the public to go further.
Representative Garrett objected to
Lawson repeating his conversations
with those men on the ground that
they did not tend to cast any light on
Representative Campbell then
changed the form of questioning
slightly and Lawson continued to re
peat his conversation with Henry,
Insists on Telling AIL
"I will say in viev. of all that has
occurred here," Lawson declared,
"that it is right that you should hear
all 1 have to say. When there is a
direct difference of opinion stronger
than veracity raised, it is perfectly
obvious that one of the other of us
is committing perjury, deliberate, rank
perjury. This is no syndicate or na
tional bank meeting. This it a meet
ing of a high committee of congress.
In my opinion ther: is nothing of
greater importance than for your
committee to arrive at a fair and hon
est decision and to do that you must
hear what I have to say."
Representatives Garrett, Foster and
others objected to Lawson's argument
and there was a stormy wrangle dur
ing which Lawson shouted his insist
ence that he should be heard fully,
i Chairman Henry ruled that he
would be given an opportunity to tell
all he wanted, v
Henry Favored Delay.
Lawson resumed his narrative of his
meeting with Henry, reiterating that
the chairman told him the leak was
too serious for an investigation at
this time, but he favored a general
inquiry later into the stock market
Lawson said he endorsed that and re
vealed to Henry that he bad much
to do with the money trust inquiry,
though Henry, a member' of the com
mittee, was unaware of it.
"I told him," Lawson said, "that
I dug up much of the information.
Untermyer went to Europe while I
did it. 1 personaly paid the bills of
the experts, upwards of $40,000, and
asked for no glory except to appear
at withett. i v. .;. J,'
Lawson Advises Lifting Lid.
'"'Here is a chance,' I told Henry,
'to duplicate that. It it the greatest
thing that can be done for the Amer
ican people.' "
"Go to Wall street and set up
shop," was the advice Lawson said he
gave Henry. There, he said, all of the
Stock exchange members could be
summoned, with their books and
clerks, and be forced to reveal the in
side of transactions.
Referring again to his conference
with Henry, mentioning Secretary
Lansing and Bernard Baruch, Lawson
declared Henry told him the commit

tee had the substance of all of one of
Lansing's talks at the Biltmore hotel
with the New York broker and the
substance of part of another.
"I said to Henry, 'Go through it
from A to Z,'" Lawson testified,
" 'and before you are one-third done
the lid will be blown off. Congress
will know and the world will know
who the hypocrites are that are mak
ing millions.' Thst was what we
talked about in the three hours and a
quarter I was with him.
"He asked me one thing before we
left the meeting: 'I ask you to do
this,' he said. 'Throw the newspapers
off the scent We cannot gain any
thing bv lettina them know that we
are coming back here at 3 o'clock.'"
Second Talk with Henry.
'So I met Mr. Henry again at 3
o'clock," Lawson continued. "He
said to me: 'Lawson, I'm sorry that
we can't do what you say. I agree
with you that it is a great thing and
a good thing, and all I regret is that
I am going out ot office on the 4th ot
"I said that there was time enough
yet to do something. Then Henry
said that since we had parted in the
morning he had thought it all over
and that he had come to the con
clusion that the matter was too se
rious to have made public now. He
then added: 'What do you say if we
get at it again in thirty days?'
I said, not at all. It would be side
tracked by that time and we will
never have this opportunity again."
"State the way in which the names
came to be mentioned first, in your
interview with Mr. Henry?" said Rep
resentative Campbell, republican.
"I entered the rom and the chair
man said nice things to me. He
wheeled up a chair and said: Take
a comfortable one.' I asked him to
have one of my cigars and he asked
me to have one of his cigarettes.

"Then he said: 'Lawson, we've

let us be fair with each other.' I
said to him that I thought his com
mittee would dispute his right to hold
a star chamber session of this mat
ter and that I probably would have
to talk to the committee. He said:
'No; it's my duty to do this. There
are hundreds of things that come
before this committee, many of them
worthless charges, and it is my duty
to sift them and to see whether they
should be given to the committee.'

Henry Mentions Lansing.
"Then Mr. Henry said: To show
you where we stand I'll tell you of
some things we have got. We have
it that a Mr. Baruch, who made large
contributions to the democratic cam
paign fund, had four conversations
with Secretary Lansing.'
"That's going some,' I replied,
'four of 'em.'

and then he added I forgot to state

of such transactions, even though
these things were floating all around
"Then Henry asked me how these
things could happen and I told him
that there had been a big conspiracy
