Kenyon Declares Practice of
Entertaining Senators Jus-
tifies Wilson Charge.
La Kollette Kegards 1egislator as
Species of Judge and Would
Penalize Speaking to One
on Public Business.
WASHINGTON". June 3. "Social lob
bying" in Washington justifies every
word that President "Wilson uttered in
regard to the presence of "insidious
lobby" at the capital. Senator Kenyon,
of Iowa, declared on the witness stand
before the Senate investigating com
mittee. It was the first unequivocal
statement in support of the President's
attitude since the inquiry began.
The Iowa Senator explained that he
believed the "most insidious" and
powerful lobbying possible was the
practice of flattering Senators by hav
ing them out to dinners, to theaters
and on automobile rides, ingratiating
the host with the distinguished guests.
Pointing to the sworn testimony of
Edward Htnes, a "lumber king," be
fore the Lorimer election investigation
that he entertained Senators at hotel
dinners at a time the lumber sched
ule in the Payne-Aldrich bill was be
fore the senate. Senator Kenyon de
clared it his belief that Senators were
being entertained in this "Insidious
way" at present.
KelloTT Senators Denounced.
He also denounced ex-Senators for
capitalizing1 their privilege on the floor
by using it to lobby. Referring to one
ex-Senator representing many railways
In Washington and often -seen on the
floor of the Senate, he advocated the
enactment of legislation to prohibit an
f x-Senator from being a lobbyist.
Senator Hughes of New Jersey and
Senator James of Kentucky told the
invest! gators for the first time of the
trials and tribulations of majority
members of the finance committee with
with the many persons who had flocked
to Washington to present their views.
Neither knew of any attenppt to cor
rupt Senators, but both suggested they
rould have done better work if they
had been bothered less. These Sena
tors, as did Senator LaFollette. who
followed them on the stand, suggested
that legislation for the registration of
lobbyists would be a good thing.
SiiKiir Appeal Made Iublle.
Senators let it be known today that
they had received by registered mail
what purported to bo a reproduction
of a letter from the American Cane
Orowers Association of the United
States sent o members asking for con
tributions for the use of a "large com
mission in Washington."
A copy was dated New Orleans, April
2. 1913, and read as follows:
"Pear Sirs: Your association has a
lnrge commission in Washington now,
doing everything possible to try to
save the sugar industry.
"We have hesitated In calling on you
but as we have now overdrawn the
bank It is now absolutely necessary
that we have funds at once and there
fore call on you to please send one
half of your subscription, say 5 cents
per thousand pounds on the crop of
"This is very important and we
would like to have remittance at once.
"You rs verv trul y,
"CHARLES A. FARWELL, President."
I'enrose Gives. 175 Names.
Senator Penrose gave the names of
3 75 persons who had called on him
since January 1, but said none had
made "improper" attempts to influence
him. He said their work was "perfect
ly legitimate.'
Senator Lippitt, first witness at the
a fternoon session. testified that he
owned about one-quarter of a cotton
cloth plant capitalized at $6,000,000 and
located at Providence, R. I. He had
talked with other Senators about the
cotton tariff. He furnished a list of
25 tariff visitors.
Senator Lippitt declared that he had
not tried to Influence anyone improp
erly, nor had anyone so tried to influ
ence him. Common stock of the Mann
ville Cotton Company, of which he was
manager, had gone down probably 50
per cent as a result of the threatened
tariff reduction, he said.
"Is it true you prepared the cotton
Bchedulo as it appeared in the Payne
Aldrich tariff bill?" asked Senator
Aldrlch Advised by Lippitt.
"I am perfectly willing to say I ap
peared before the ways and means com
mittee and said the manufacturers did
not ask for increased duties, but later
I tendered a letter which was Intended
to correct several decisions. I also
asked for an increased duty on mercer
Izatiou because that was a new process.
Shortly after that I went to Europe.
When T arrived In New York I was
asked by telegraph to come here to act
as an expert In advising Mr. Aldrich,
who was a personal friend and who had
confidence in my knowledge. It took
in a a week to study out the changes
made in the Senate. I had nothing to
do with the changes."
"Hid you furnish Information to
I talked to Senators Smoot, Lodge
end Flint. I remember."
The Senator said he believed some
of hi3 suggestions to the ways and
means committee were incorporated In
the bill.
Senator Hughes, of New Jersey, the
first majority member of the iinance
committee to take the stand, testlttod
he was not financially or professionally
Interested in the MIL. "I have sought to
influence members of the finance com
mittee as to rates, however." said the
Senator with a smile.
"Making due allowance for the in
terest of men in their business." he
Fail, "I . should, say no Improper at
tempts were made to Influence me. One
lft a piece of soap; one h safety
laxor; another a hat that lit me."
Ho declared a favorite method of ap
proaching him hud been for delega
tions of laboring men to come to him
with an appeal not to hurt their busi
J on en Qualifies as Farmer.
Senator Jones, of Washington, quali
tw d as a farmer by saying he owned
1 acres. He said he had no knowledge
of a lobby, livery day. he said, he got
a circular from W. L. Bass and another
from Frank Lowery regarding sugar.
H" said this must cost money, but he
did not know whose money it was,
senator Kenyon testified he. too. had
a farm in Iowa. He said he had re
reivt'u several letters about the tariff,
one regarding dog biscuits.
Senator Johnson, of Maine, said he
owned 2$ shares in a cotton mill in
his home town, but a" he was In favor
of reduced duties on cotton he never
i "'iKid.-red his interests disoarred him
'r- in parsing on the schedules.
Senator Myers, of Montana, testified
considered a -man a lobbyist who
eMHbllshed himself near a legislative
body and rtpeatedly talked to members
and under that definition, classified H.
T. Oxnard and truman O. Palmer, who
had called upon him to urge sugar du
ties, as lobbyists, but not in an obnox
ious sense.
Senator Hitchcock, of Nebraska, de
fined a lobbyist as one rho came to an
executive body and interviewed mem
bers for private interests. He said h
would change the law so that man
would not be made rich by statutes
and would no longer have a special in
terest in legislation.
"I believe a lobby exists here and the
President knew just what he was talk
ing about," declared the Senator. He
said he did not know to what extent
"social lobbying" was being carried on
at this time.
Senator LaFollette, of Wisconsin, tes
tified he was interested in the publica
tion of a weekly paper, but said he did
not believe it would be affected by any
Item in the, tariff bill." He said he
owned a farm and an interest In some
zinc-bearing lands in Wisconsin, which
since the Payne-Aldrich tariff had been
enacted had been producing a small
royalty. In response to letters from
zinc land owners in his state the Sen
ator said he asked Senator Stone re
cently if it would be advisable for them
to come to Washington to present their
views against a reduction in zinc tariff
rates. As a result he wrote them not
to come as it . probably would do no
good. x
LaFollette Defines Lobbying.
Four years ago. Senator LaFollette
said, he was interviewed in regard to
hides, the interviewer informing him
that he had already engaged a page or
two of advertisement in his magazine.
"I told him if he did not hurry to the
telegraph office I would be at him In
ordering a cancellation of his adver
tisement," declared the Senator.
Replying to questions about persons
being maintained in Washington to look
after legislation. Senator LaFollette
said the American Federation of Labor
and the Seamen's Union kept men
"Under my definition of the term,
that is lobbying," ho declared.
"A legislator should stand in the same
attitude as a judge," Senator LaFollette
added. "I would make it an offense to
speak privately to a member or Senator
about public business."

BOSTON, June 3. The guilt or inno
cence of "William Mt Wood, president of
the American Woolen Company,
charged with conspiracy to "plant" dy
namite on the premises of textile strik
ers at Lawrence, must be determined
by a jury without any direct evidence
by the defense.

Jury Left to Decide.
In denying the motion, the court said
that so far as Wood was concerned
the questions to be considered were:
Does the evidence show a conspiracy
to have existed, and was the defend
ant. Wood, a party to such a conspiracy?
"Juries said Judge Crosby, "can
only draw such Inferences from facts
such as are fair. It seems to me of
much importance to show the relations
business and otherwise between Mr.
Atteaux and Mr. Wood, as well as the
relations between other co-conspira
"It Is necessary for the common
wealth to show something more than
passive knowledge or acquiescence in
the conspiracy, but it is not necessary
to prove that the conspirators actually
met together, though this might be in
ferred from the evidence.

"I have not been sitting here for
part of three weeks without having

SAN FRANCISCO, June 3. The peak

the United States, compiled by the
Bureau of Foreign and Domestic Com

Thus, the highest number of arrivals
in any one year was 30,226 In 1907, at
the time of the agitation suppressed by
President Roosevelt. Again In 1912,
just before the enactment of the alien
land law, the excess of arrivals over
departures was 4617. a greater num
ber than for any year since 1908, when
arrivals totalled 15,803.
Since 1906 the figures are as fol
lows: Arrivals 1907, no, 226: 1908, 15.

Delegation Urges Continuance of Ir

WASHINGTON, June 3. Apprehen

delegation of citizens of that state
called on Secretary Lane today to urge
him to continue the projects.
At a recent conference representa

the lands to be Irrigated In Montana
were not valuable enough to warrant
the amounts the water-users will have
to pay. Secretary Lane intimated,
therefore, that Jt might be goad policy
for the Government to forego the

McCartney holdings have secured the
property of the Newark Development
Company on the Western Alameda
waterfront. This latter report Is de
nied by Harvey M. Toy. but the internal
evidence points to the confirmation of
the rumor. Toy owns all of the stock
of the Newark Development Company
in conjunction with his wife and one
of the clerks in his office and is active
head of the company. He admitted to
day that he had sold his holding on
Bay Farm Island, from which action
his connection with the Hill system
may be surmised.
The Newark Devolopment Company's
land is better known as the Neptune
Garden project. It was said when the
land was secured that it was to be used
for an amusement park and bathing
resort. It appears that it was never
intended to while away the tedious
hours of the residents of Alameda. The
company owns 94 acres of waterfront
and tide lands property. The peculiar
feature is that while its bay frontage
is 751 feet, its water frontage is much
larger. The rights to the ttdelands
of the adjoining property have been
secured, and it is understood that negro
tlatlons are being carried on for th
property and tldelands of the holdings
just to the south of its tidelands.
Water Terminal Proponed.
Here will be developed, the great
water terminal of the deep-sea lines
to be operated in conjunction with the
railway system. A large amount of
dredging and rilling will be necessary,
but the site 'Is much more practicable
than the Bay Farm Island for a deep
water terminus, for the bay shoals
rapidly to the south.
It is not only in San Francisco that
tne activities of the Hill system are
arousing interest. From Sydney,
Australia, comes the report that a
steamship line is to be established be
tween that port and this. That the
company is planning an increase in its
water carriers is substantiated by the
building of three steamers in the East
for the Pacific service. Each rumor
points to the quick entry of the rail
road into this region.
Even the route from the East has
been tentatively chosen. From some
point in Wyoming, on the Chicago, Bur
lington & Quincy road, the line will
be run to Salt Lake City, Utah. From
that point two courses are open. A
new road paralleling those of the Cen
tral Pacific and the Western Pacific
may be built, or the complete absorp
tion of the Western Pacific may be
effected. In the light of the recent
attacks on the Harriman lines under
the Sherman anti-trust law, the latter
plan Is apparently barred, and to secure
entry an additional road must be built.

only Is it one of the largest in size,
consisting of 625 acres, but its position
on the western end of the island brings
with its purchase the most valuable
waterway right and the most conven
ient location. This property recently
changed hands, and it is understood
that the purchasers of the McCartney
holdings bave secured a large part of
the other lands of the island. The total
area of Bay Farm Island is 1778.78
acres. Including the marsh lands.

Statute Demands That Hotels With
Burs Accommodate 5 0 GueMs.
H1LLSBORO, Or., June 3. (Special.)
The new state liquor law. In effect
today, has closed but three saloons In
Washington County, one at Buxton, on
the Pacific Railway & Navigation Com
pany's line between here and Tilla
mook, one at Timber, and one at Tual
atin. The Buxton saloon closed May 1,
because its license expired at that time
and the proprietor concluded It was not
worth while to continue for a month.
The two saloons at Banks, and the
saloons at Timber and Sherwood are
located In hotel buildings. The North
Plains saloon, on the united Railways,
yesterday moved into the hotel building.
District Attorney E. B. Tongue today
received an opinion from Attorney-Gen
eral Crawford, touching on the hotel
qualifications necessary for Installing
a oar. ne law requires that the
County Court may grant saloon licenses,
outside of incorporated towns, only to
bona fide hotel keepers having capacity
for the care of 50 guests. The state's
legal adviser holds that it is not neces
sary for such hotels to have 60 guest
rooms, and avers that in the country
many hotel keepers "double-up" their
patrons so that two occupy the same
The Attorney-General advises the
District Attorney to use his own jude
ment in this regard, as the law is not
exactly clear.
The town of Tualatin, which has no
large hotel, will vote on Incorporation
In July and if it carries, will handle the
license question from a municipal stand
point. The law now cuts saloon licenses
to 12 in this county, five of which are
in this city, and two in Beaver ton.
Another peculair feature of the new
liquor amendment is the inhibition of
gifts of liquors of any kind, even hard
cider, outside of incorporated cities or
In dry territory. The law says any
persons is prohibited from selling or
giving away liquor of any kind con
taining alcohol. If this Is followed to
its last analysis a host cannot give his
guest a glass of wine, beer, whisky or
hard cider, either at the table or at any
other time, if he shall live outside an
incorporated town. Members of the
local bar here allege that such an in
terpretation of the statute would be an
absurdity, but the District Attorney
refused to commit himsell when asked
the question direct. Some lawyers,
however, say that such a law Is un-

Oregon Senator Insist on Knowing
About Indian Founds.
ington, June 3. Senator Lane today
gained one point by his attack on the
Indian appropriation bill, but has not
let up on his fight to require the In
dian Bureau to Justify every appropria
tion that has been asked of Congress.
The committee has agreed to rewrite
these items and specify the exact pur
pose for which the appropriation Is to
bo used, for salaries of employes and
for improvements at Indian schools and
on the reservations.
Even yet, however. Senator Lane has
been unable to procure from the In
dian Bureau a. complete explanation of
various estimates for which many ap
propriations are really intended, and
he has insisted that this explanation
must be forthcoming; before the bill
receives his sanction.
White he is making no threats, he
has conveyed the idea to members of
the committee that If they outvote him
and. rush the bill to the Senate over
his protest he will transfer his fight
to the floor of the Sena-te and there
openly demand the information he is
now seeking in committee.
