WASHINGTON. July 17. Preslden
Taffs campaign fund of 1908 was th
oubject of Inquiry today by the Senat
committee Investigating the political
was chests of that campaign and of
Alton B. Parker, fonr year before.
Postmaster General Hitchcock, chair
man of the Aepubllcan committee In
1908. told the Senatora no contribution
was accepted from any corporation, and
that the committee, had declined 120.000
from T. Coleman Dupont, of Delaware,
because the Government then was at
taekina- the powder trust. Moreover,
Congress had forbidden corporation
The total of the Republican fund was
tl.6S5.518. Mr. Hitchcock said, and he
reminded the Senatora that those fig
ures were disclosed in the report filed
In Albany In conformity with the laws
of New York.
To ha ct- Trast Not Cnatrlhator.
Neither the Tobacco Trust nor any of
Its stockholders that Mr. Hitchcock
knew of contributed. Some stockhold
ers of the Steel Corporation and somt
of the International Harvester Com
pany, among the latter, George W.
Perkins, gave to the fund.
Mr. Hitchcock went Into details con
rernlng the offer of financial assist
ance made by General Dupont, who
went to the committee with $20,000.
"He turned It over to the Treasurer.
George R. Sheldon. began Hitchcock.
"When I learned of it I told Mr. Du
pont I did not think we could accept It,
because the Government had a civil
suit against a corporation In which ha
was Interested. I Instructed the Treas
urer to return It. and he did so."
Hitchcock said General Dupont de
clared he felt twe was not doing bis
part and asked If he could not give the
money in some way. Hitchcock said
he replied In the negative.
"I am positive he did not contribute
it to any other fund, he added, be
cause I have talked to General Dupont
about it since the campaign. He said
that when the fund was returned he
considered he had given it to a cause
and placed it on special deposit.
Snail Coatrllrations Desired.
Hitchcock insisted that with the ex
ception of about 25 all the contribu
tions were below (5000.
"We figured that the more persons
we could get to Invest, the more inter
est they would take In the success of
the venture," explained the former
Before the system of collecting
money by finance committees organ
ized in each state was put into oper
ation. Hitchcock said. fortunately
friends of the party came forward with
large contributions. The first "friends'
he mentioned In that connection were
Charles P. Taft. brother of President
Tart, who contributed S30.000; William
Nelson Cromwell, 925.000; Mr. and Mrs.
Lars Anderson. 125,000; Andrew Car
uegie. 120,000; William Smith Cochran,
115.000; Frank Munsey, $10,000; White
law Rfld. $10,000; M. C. Borden. $10,-
000, and General Corbin, for a number
of persons, $10,000.
Senator Paynter asked Hitchcock if
be were acquainted with any of the
stockholders of the International Har
vester Company. He said he knew the
Mt-Cormlcks. Krank ' Munsey. George
Perkins and Clarence S. Punk.
"Did Mr. Perkins contribute?" asked
the Senator.
"I do not thlrftc so."
"Did the McCormicks?"
"Not that I remember. They would
be more likely to contribute to your
party, sir.

have a complete high school course. In
connection with its public school sys
tem. Heretofore the tenth grade has
been the most advanced course of
studies offered.
The District School Board called a
special election at which the voters de
cided almost unanimously to maintain
the full number of crrades prescribed
for schools offering; the complete high
ichool course.
Heretofore many students have se
cured the last two years of their high

will be unnecessary and also It is be
lieved that the added school advantages
will attract families to this city as well
as scholars from the surrounding com

LOS ANGELES. July 17. (Special.)
Sullen, unruly and a persistent dls
turber of prison discipline. J. B. Mc
Namara, elder of the McNamara broth
era, confessed dynamiters of the Times
building, is passing- a long period in a
dungeon at San Quentin: a cell Into
which but a bit of sunlight pene
trates and where the sound of human
voices is seldom heard.
There he must wait until the dawn-
ng of a desire to conform himself to
the requirements of his station in life.
Long hours of solitary confinement
have had no effect thus far, the prison
authorities say, but they expect to
bring the convict to submission. Resists Discipline.
McNamara refuses to obey orders, is
awless in his demeanor and will not
submit to discipline, according to ac
counts received from the prison offi
cials by Deputy Sheriff Manning, who
returned from the North today. Mc
Namara would not do his dally work
in the jute mill. He Is also believed
to have been a ringleader In the re
cent uprising of convicts and It la aus
pected he knows a good deal oi the
conspiracy to burn the Jute mill and
its valuable machinery.
'The prison authorities have found
B. a bad actor," said Manning. "He
causes all the trouble he possibly can.
He assumes a sneering attitude all the
time. He will remain in the dungeon
until thoroughly submissive, the off!
lals assured me.
Insanity Plea Suggested.
It has been suggested that he is
trying to lay a foundation for an In
sanity plea at some later date, but
the officials declare It is a plain case
of natural cussedness cropping out.
John J. AlcNamara, on the other
and, is proving a model prisoner and
as tried to Influence his brother In
that direction, but to no purpose. Both
the McNamaras are In good health.
Delegate Tells of Weary Honrs in
Taking 4 6 Ballots Says Wil
son Won Fairly.
"With the nomination of Woodrow
Wilson as candidate for the Presi
dency on- the Democratic ticket the
supporters of Bryan, Clark, Under
wood and other aspirants for the nomi
nation have acquiesced to the will of
the majority and wltb the belief that
Wilson la the best man for tbe posi
tion are going to strive for his elec
tion," declared F. V. Holman. a dele
gate to the Democratic convention, who
returned yesterday after spending sev
eral weeks near Chicago.
"I have talked with many people in
cluding; Republicans and I have found
that they are of the opinion that Wil
son is a good man. - I believe con
fidently that he will be elected. In
the first place It is certain that he
will get the votes of all Democrats,
progressive or conservative. It is also
highly probable that ha will get many
progressive Republtcana who are not
radicals of the Roosevelt kind.
"1 base my opinion on what I have
gleaned from conversations with poli
ticians In many parts of the East, In
cluding Baltimore. New York and Chi
cago. I remained In the East until
tbe noise of the convention had blown
over and I believe that when the polit
ical atmosphere grew clear thera was
a unanimity of opinion that no mistake
was mads by the party In selecting Mr.
"The convention Itself waa a long,
hot and hard one. It la hard to realise
what S ballots means without being
there to take , part in them. During
the first ten ballots I was for Wilson
and cast my vote that way. At tha
time Clark had a majority and Wilson
was trailing behind with less than one
third. After ten ballots I turned to
Clark and remained with him until
Wilson began to gain. I then wen
back to him and remained for the last
25 ballots and until he was nominated.
Wilson's gains came slowly and for the
most part consisted of scattering dele
gates. The convention was composed
of men who could not be stampeded.
"Each of the ballots took about an
hour and it 1s possible to tell how
we worked when we were in session
all one day and night until 7 o'clock
next morning. Another day we were
In session until 3:30 o'clock in the
morning. Wilson's nomination was by
good, clean and honest tactics of which
there Is no dispute. ,
Members All Quit In Body and Crisis
in Affairs Is Feared.
Turkish Cabinet resigned today In con
sequence of the revolt In the army
against the methods of the Committee
of Union and Progress.
It was thought that the vote of con
fldence In the Grand Viier. passed by
the chamber on Monday, after, he had
announced that the Turkish govern
ment refused as unacceptable all the
proposed conditions of peace with Italy,
had given the Cabinet a new lease of
life. The feeling, however, against the
dictatorial Saloniki committee, which
behind the scenes had been preparing
the departmental action of the minis
ters. was no longer resistible.
Mahmond Shefket Pasha's resigna
tion of the war office was a protes
against the action of the Committee on
on Union and Progress, which preemp-
torlly, countermanded his orders to the
troops to abstain from Interfering In
the elections.
Military League Active.
The military league has rapidly
grown and Is pledged to secure the
appointment of a new cabinet which
will enjoy the confidence of the pow
ers. The league la determined to over
throw the Committee of Union and
Progress, which apparently is losing
the vice-like grip it has held on the
government and the Turkish Empire
since the revolution of four years ago.
The news from Albania Is serious.
The troops have been 'rebuffed by the
Albanians In many directions. Four
battalions of Infantry recently were

troops with three of their officers were
forced to surrender. They were dls
armed and carried off to the rebel
Albanians Beaelge Troops. 4
The remainder of the Turkish trooDS
retreated to Dlakova. where they are
besieged , by the Albanians.

Terminus on Tillamook Bay. The following extract from the Telegram, July 16, is a criterion of the de
velopment of the Tillamook country: "The outlook for business on the New Coast line of the Southern
Pacific is most excellent," said General Superintendent Campbell this morning. "Not only have sawmills
been established, but there are numerous other industries which are considering securing locations along
the line. Freight tonnage is increasing at a most gratifying rate and I look for extraordinary develop
ment of the entire Tillamook country within the next year. Investors and settlers are being attracted by
the fine opportunities. ... As everybody knows, the greatest timber belt in the world is in Tillamook
County along our line, and there is no better dairying country than Tillamook County that I know any
thing about." ' .
