N. A. M. Head Sent Check
to Negro Attaches.
Witness Says Check Was Given to
Mulhall For Pages "Merely to Pay
For the Many Courtesies They
Performed For Our Members."
Washington, Aug. 13. James A.
Emery, chief representative of tho Na
tional Association of Manufacturers
hero, defined to the senate lobby com
mittee tho duties of Martin M. Mul
hall, who claimed to be that associa
tion's lobbyist
"Mulhall kept mo supplied with cop
ies of bills and public documents In
relation to tho work here and got
Information of tho status of legisla
tion In which wo were Interested. In
this work ho gathered Information and
learned the views of members of con
gress. Ho made inquiries about hear
ings and requested an opportunity for
me to appear," sold Emery.
Emery denied that Henry Neal and
Harry Parker, two negro employees
at tho capltol were In the pay of the
manufacturers. Mulhall swore that
for almost a year Emery gave him
each month a $100 check, of which 50
was to go to I. H. McMlchael, one time
chief page of tho bouse, and $50 went
to Parker and Neal. Emery denied
he ever drew such check. He declared
Mulhall told him he had a friend at
the capltol -who could get public docu
ments and bills. Later Emery learned
the friend was McMlchael.
Emery testified, however, that ho did
draw a check for $50, sent it to Mul
hall and told him to divide it between
Neal and Parker, "merely to pay for
tho many courtesies they performed
for our members."
Made Payments to Mulhall.
"Did you ever make any payments
to Mulhall for McMlchael?" asked At
torney McCartcr for the manufactur
ers. "Yes," said tho witness, "It never ex
ceeded ?20 a month, and It terminated
when I left for Europe in 1010."
Emery denied Mulhall's story that
former Representative Jenkins of Wis
consin had promised that If re-elected
ho would see that a man satisfactory
to the manufacturers would go on the
house Judiciary committee.
Emory denied that ho tried in 1003
to have Congressman Malby of New
York mado chairman, succeeding Jen
kins. Mulhall testified the manufac
turers worked to put Malby in the
Emery testified his only activity
against Senator nughes, when a can
didate for congress in 1008, was the
distribution of campaign literature
among manufacturers giving Hughes'
attitude toward labor. Ho thought It
was mailed under the frank of Con
gressman LIttlefleld.
Martin M. Mulhall continued his ac
count of his relations with congress
men tln his work for tho National As
sociation of Manufacturers before the
house lobby committee.
ED IN 1874.
Ice cream has been a dominating
influence in tho progress of the soda
water industry since the advent of
pure fruit syrups. Tho addition of
thiB frozen palate-tickler to soda
water not only Improved the rich
ness and smoothness of the beverage,
but at the same time it Increased its
food value.
Statistics as to the consumption of
ice cream show an enormous increase
since it was first added to soda wa
ter, and the soda fountain has not
only been tho greatest quantity con
sumer of Ice cream but Its best ad
vertiser. With tho advent of tho
luscious sundae came still additional
increase of both soda and ice cream
at fountains.
Everyone knows just what consti
tutes a sundae, and how tempting
the appearance of the ice cream with
tho added syrup, fruits and nuts
a combination pleasing alike to eye
and palate. Tho combination was
christened sundae so the legend
goes because a druggist originated
this " one best bet " on a Sunday.
There are many claimants to the
honor of " I did it first," as there
are to almost all of the combinations
represented by the modern menu or
dispenser's guide, but whoever
thought of the sundae first did a
good thing for which the public as
well as the fountain Industry owe
a vote of thanks.
In thp spring of 1874 Robert M.
Green, of Philadelphia, had begun
the manufacture of smaller types of
fountains. He secured a concession
to dispense soda water at an exposi
tion held under the auspices of the
Franklin Institute of Phllnde'phia,
and stress of business compelled him
to do something to attract the
patronage of the public. At all
events, such was the inspiration ac
cording to Mr. Green which prompt
ed him to put ice cream in soda wa
ter. For the first time he advertised
ice cream in soda water at a soda
fountain, and he unquestionably is
entitled to the honor and the credit
of originating ice cream soda, which
as the years have passed has develop
ed an enormous demand and given
unquestioned impetus to the busi
ness of soda water dispensing.
On the other hand, the credit for
commercializing ice cream as an ad
junct to soda water, even though Mr.
Green was the first to use it, un
questionably belongs to Fred Sand
ers, of Detroit, a prominent con
fectioner of the Michigan city. The
Inspiration to use ice cream with
soda water came to Mr. Sanders one
night when his plain cream had
soured, and without the knowledge
that it had already been used as a
component of soda water in the east.
Mr. Sanders used ice cream and
featured it. It is said he did more
to popularize ice cream soda than
any other fountain owner in this
