formation as to plans to put William
G. McAdoo's name before the demo
cratic national convention and an as
sertion from John T. King, original
manager for Major-General Leonard
"Wood, that Dan R. Hanna of Cleve
land, early in the general's campaign,
had promised "to go out and gather
in 500,000." In reply to questions,
Mr. King said he did not know

had been contributed for Senator

Conference Is Related.
Tn i-esnect to the candidacy of Mr
McAdoo, Dr. Burris Jenkins, publisher
of th Kansas City
Post, told the
committee tnat ne nao. come 10 Well
ington for a conference last night
with Jouett Shouse, assistant secre
tary of the treasury; Daniel C. Roper,
ex-commissioner of internal revenue;
Commissioner Robert Woolley of the
interstate commerce commission, and
Frank Wilson, ex-director of liberty
Dr. Jenkins explained that he had
been asked to place Mr. McAdoo in
nomination at the San Krancisco con
vention, but of any funds to be used
in behalf of the ex-secretary of the
treasury he knew nothjng, he said.
Resuming its inquiry Into the cam
paign of Attorney-General Palmer,
the committee finished its day with
ex-Federal Judge J. H. Covington, na
tional treasurer of the Palmer cam
paign, answering questions designed
by the inquisitors to show connection
of several Palmer supporters, as
named on the contribution list previ
ously produced, with the office of the
alien property custodian, of which Mr.
Palmer was the war-time head.
Covington Is Interrogated.
Judge Covington's legal representa
tion of the Revere Sugar company of
Boston, which has a case pending be
fore the department of justice, also
was touched upon.
Ta a question as to whether his
activities in behalf of Mr. Palmer
were occasioned by his quasi-governmental
legal associations, Mr. Cov
ington gave an unqualified negative.
Only nine men on the contribution
list, he said, "had any connection, di
rect or indirect," with the adminis
tration of alien property.
Mr. King's testimony concerned the
early organization of the Wood cam
paign, its financing under his direc
tion to the extent of $91,000 and his
retirement in favor of Colonel Will
iam C. Procter. He denied reports
that the Wood campaign had- been
underwritten by a group of wealthy
men, who attended a dinner given bj
the late Henry C. Frick for the pur
pose. "A question of policy," Mr. King
said, caused him to withdraw as Gen
eral Wood's manager.
The witnesses denied that the financ
ing of General Wood's campaign was
taken up at the much-discussed din
tier at the New York home of Henry
C Frick. He also denied that he had
ilscussed the subject with George
"I raised about $91,000 as I re
member it," he said, "$30,000 in con
tributions and about $50,000 which
I secured on my own note. They then
owed rne some money when I quit."
"Where did the contributions come
from?" asked Chairman Kenyon.
Dam Hanna Mentioned.
"A Major Hooker on General Wood's
Haff tn Chicago told mo that $25,000
ould be sent me," vac the answer.
'I got in the mail from Chicago one
cashier's check for $15,000 and an
other for $10,000. Then two of Gen
eral Wood's friends, whose names I
do not remember, sent checks for
"Who brought you into touch with
General Wood?" asked Senator Reed.
"I think it was Pan Hanna," Mr.
Kins said, adding: "He and William
Loeb told me of a plan to make Gen
eral Wood a candidate." Mr. King
paid "Mr. Hanna agreed to raise halt
a million dollars. It was not dis
cussed with General Wood.".
"Dir Mr. Hanna ever raise any
money and turn it over to you
"He did not."
"Why didn't he?"
'1 don't know; that was what I was
trying to find out when I left.1
"What did you do with the $91,000?"
Senator Reed asked.
Fund Spent in Six States.
"Used it for traveling expenses and
publicity. Some money went into
Mates six of them."
"Georgia, Florida, Massachusetts,
Oregon. Nebraska there may have
been one other."
Mr. King said $5000 was sent to
Oreson to a man named Doro at

"The net result of your 11 months"
connection with General Wood's cam
paign was the expenditure of $91,

can. rew Jersey.
"Yes." the witness replied.
James B. Reynolds, ex-treasurer of
the republican national committee,
testified that he had managed a cam
paign for Governor Coolidge of Mas
sai-husetts, us "long as there was i
campaign." He said the largest ex
penditure was about $22,000 for the
book on his career and speeches, and
no money was sent out of Massa
Judge J. Harry Covington, treas
urer of the campaign organization
supporting Attorney-General Palmer,
was called to identify subscribers to
funds collected by it. He denied hav
ing been connected with the alien
property custodian staff. He said he
was counsel for several German
owned chemical companies the cus
todian took over.
"Mr. Palmer had you appointed?"
Chairman Kenyon pursued.
"Oh. undoubtedly, but I was paid
from the corporation funds. I never
received a dollar from the govern
ment." He also testified that Joseph
F. Guffey was connected with the
alien custodian, as director of sales
at $1 a year.
"He's a very wealthy man; has
given $10,000 up to date without be
ing asked for anything."

NEW BILLS AT THE THEATERS
BY LEONE CASS BAER.
A GALAXY of entertainment is
"Hitchy-Koo," a.continuoua bill
of polite and sometimes not so polite
vaudeville, with the same excellent
performers occupying numerous roles
throughout the scenes. The sonorous
voiced, shaggy haired Mr. Hitchcock
plays, of course, the main role in
many of the episodes, with George F.
Moore tagging along in his comedy
wake. There is infinite variety in
Mr. Hitchcock's drolleries still run
smoothly, his voice is as sepulchral
and musicless as we have always re
membered it, and his achievements
teem to be just as originally pleas

renews acquaintance advantageously.
He still pursues his friendly habit of
hobnobbing with the folk who pay
three dollars and more for a seat to
eit in and laugh. Last night he found
targets for his original comedy in
various local lights, picking them out
in the boxes and chatting amiably and
in neighborly way with close-ups in
and aisles and front rows. A ripple
of excitement followed when a quar
tet of Portland's finest trooped down
the aisle and staged a pseudo arrest,
which was sid-stepped skillfully by

of delights in color and sound, with

graceful and a slim princess of dance

other memorable moment, with pretty
maids and young men in old-fashioned
garb bowing and pirouetting while
charming Rita Dane sings of old
fashioned days. She is a very pic

sings sweetly. Of the comedy mo

'1 believe eo," Mr. Covington re

The defense sprung a surprise- to
day when W. H. Gore, Medford banker
and member of the legislature, was
under cross-examination, by introduc
ing evidence in contradiction to Mr.
Gore's assertion that he did not know
until the spring of 1915 that Medford
would be expected to finance the fac

first heard from Alexander Nibley
that Medford would be expected to

Medford men felt that they had been
