MORGAN m RJL-
• TON IN DEBATE
MORGAN PUTS HIS OPPONENT
Showed From Records "That Fulton
Drew Salary to Which He Was
Anadarko, Okla., Oct. 20.—What
is generally believed as one of the
biggest sensations of the Morgan-
Fulton campaign for Congress in
the Second Congressional district
was sprung in a joint debate here
last Saturday night when Repre-
sentative Dick T. Morgan, incum-
bent, sprung letters and -official
documents on h>s democratic op-
ponent tending to show that Mr.
Fulton while a member of the Six-
tieth Congress took $5,255.14 to
which he was not entitled and that
he either connived or approved of
the legislation because he accepted
The charge came as a great sur-
prise and caused a profound sen-
sation. Nearly one thousand peo-
ple were gathered in the Opera
House to hear the joint discussion
between the rival candidates when
Mr. Morgan turned loose his sur-‘
prise paokag--. Mr. Morgan pro-
duced letters from the Treasury
Department at Washington and the
Congressional Record in support of
his contention and made the furth-
er charge that the questionable
1000 and the House passed the bill j
jMaieii if, 1909 and when the Speak-j
er asked whether there there was j
any objection to the passage of the ,
bill Mr. Fulton auquiested by his]
silence. The measure was signed
by the President March 4, 1909;
the last day of that Congress.
Mr. Fulton replying to the
charge admitting drawing the mon-
ey but gave as to his reason the
fact that he was sworn in with the
rest of the congressmen in Decem-
ber 1907. Mr. Morgan denounced
the answer as unsatisfactory and
demanded to know why special leg-
islation was necessary for him to
get the money and why the money
was not paid Mr. Fulton at the
very beginning instead on the last
day he was a member of Congress.
