George T. Horning Admits Sending
Cash to Illinois Representative,
bat Says It Was Part or
Loan Not Yet Repaid.
WASHINGTON. Auk. 19. The House
lobby investigating committee today
rontinued to probe the statement of
I. H. McMichael. one-time chief page
of the House, that Representative James
T. McDermott, of Illinois, had been
given 17500 to work against a "loan
shark" bill for the District of Colum
bia, by pawnbrokers affected by the
Two of the three brokers who con
tributed to a fund to be used against
the bill denied that Mr. McDermott had
even been asked to oppose its passage.
They swore they raised about I375U for
use in the employment of attorneys and
for presenting printed arguments to
Congressmen. Isaac Heldenheimer. who
gave 40 per cent of the total, said his
acquaintance with Representative Mc
Dermott was slight, and his conversa
tion with him about the loan bill was
New York Meeting Held.
George D. Horning, leader of the trio
of brokers, denied McMlchael's state
ment that he. Representative ' McDer
mott. John J. McDermott and McMichael
made an arrangement for the payment
of the 17509 to Representative McDer
mott at a conference in New York In
John McDermott's office. Horning said,
however; that he did talk with John
McDermott in New York about the leg
islation and thought the Illinois Con
gressman and McMichael were present.
He agreed with the chief page that
he sent $200 by express to Representa
tive McDermott at Chicago, and tele
graphed him he had sent it. He said
this was a loan, and added that Mc
Dermott still owed him fltfOO loaned
more than 18 months ago.
Money Glvem for Campaign.
Heidenheiraor and Horning agreed
that part of the fund they raised to
defeat the loan shark act went to the
Democratic National campaign fund.
Horning said he contributed $825 to
the committee and that 500 of this
amount waa taken from the common
fund. He said National Committeeman
Costello, of the District of Columbia,
and Henry Morganthau, of the Demo
cratic headquartera in New York, had
asked him for personal contributions
and that he thought a contribution
might help with Democratic Congress
men. Horning said he made an unsuccess
ful effort to have someone in Tammany
Hal) get friends of that organisation
innongress to see that the Washing
ton pawnbrokers got a hearing before
the committee in charge of the loan
bill. He did not remember who he
saw that waa supposed to have the
ear of Tammany Hall Congressmen, but
said he was "turned down" with the
statement that "Tammany could not
go Into such a thing."

names or say anything about them
selves. They followed Thaw here from
Coatlcook and remained In town over
night. V. L. Shurtleff. the Coaticook
lawyer retained by Thaw, denounced
the hearing before Justice Dupuis as
unfair and said he would apply tomor
row for a writ of habeas corpus for
Thaw prior to the hearing before the
extradition commissioner. Should the
writ be refused. Mr. Shurtlen said he
would seek an appeal.
After Thaw had spent some hours in
his cell and grumbled a bit at his poor
quarters he was removed to the hospi
tal, where the accommodations are bet
ter. At his lawyers' suggestion he con
sented to see reporters.
"Where did you intend to go after
you left Matteawan?" he was asked.
"I may have been going home." he
replied quickly and finally. No amount
of questioning could induce him to
modify this declaration. Nor could the
interviewers persuade him to tell where
he had been or what he had done since
leaving Matteawan. Courteously, but
firmly he declined to answer all ques
tions, even remotely hearing on the
Big Touring Car In Seen.
The authorities, however, believe
that Thaw had an all-day ride at
breakneck speed after he left Mattea
wan. An automobile answering the de
scription of his big touring car passed
through White River Junction, Vt.,
Sunday night. The same car was seen
yesterday morning at Woodsvllle. N. H.
On each occasion it was occupied by
four men. It is believed that Thaw and
Ms two companions left one man with
the car near Lancaster. N. H., before
boarding the train.
Of this, however. Thaw refused to
talk. He was then asked:
"Do you care to say anything about
reported threats you have made that
you would go after certain people,
should you once get out of Mattea
"I shall make no answer to the non
sense that has been printed." said
Thaw, and that ended the Interview.
The photographers came next. They
wanted a picture. Again Thaw balked.
He would not consent to il did not
consider it until he put on a clean
shirt and collar. He explained that he
had had no chance to change his
clothes since leaving Matteawan.
Thaw's two companions surpassed
him in reticence. All the newspaper
men could get was a description of
each. One of them is five feet eight
or nine inches tall, smooth faced, with
dark hair and eyes, and heavy set. The
other Is about the same height, lighter
in build and of fair complexion.
THAW'S ESCAPE COST $25,000
Two Men Suspected of Being Accom
plices In Flight Talk Freely.
NEW YORK. Aug. 19. (Special.)
Information that would indicate that at
least two of the five men who aided
Harry K. Thaw to make his sensational
escape from Matteawan are in hiding
in this city or in one of the small towns
on the New Jersey side of the Hudson
River was received by the police of this
ity late this afternoon.
From the stories they told it would
seem the escape of Thaw was not ae
complished without the expenditure of
J25.0OO. as It is said that the leaders of
the ban in this city have been lavishly
spending money in the Hell's Kitchen
district since the automobile party first
appeared at the Holland Hotel, at Fish

Most of Acting Governor Glynn's time

Governor Sulzer s day was uneventiui
except for his appointment of a new
commission to ascertain the mental
condition of a patient confined in the
Auburn State Prison under sentence of

this action, from the fact that nowever
the commission may find, it might open
the door to court proceedings to test
the validity of the Governor's act.
Governor Sulser seemed unperturbed
over the opinion of Attorney-General
Carmody, upholding the contention that
he is unlawfully exercising the func
