ship Its Lawyers Say
Stxdal to T Evenlasr Word
ALBANY Feb IlThe Senate com
mittee on miscellaneous corpses gave
a hearing today on the Page eighty
cent gas bill nnd the Gas Trusts
galaxy of attorneys did heIr little stunt
would be
of showing how the trust Wuld
robbed and Its property confiscated If
the price was put down to eighty cents
Senator Stextns who was chairman of
the comlttee that investigated the trust
lout year marked that as a result of
the reduction of the prtco of electricity
to the consumer tie receipts of the elec
creased tric lighting company had greatly In
This increase In receipts said the
Senator was due to an Increase in
consumption Now I maintain that if
the Km had len passed reducing the
prlcu of U to eighty cents the re
ceipts at the ffos company would have
correspondingly increased
I To questions put bv a member of the
commlttcv Attorney Mathewson for the I
Trust replied that the latter would
rather have the Legislature fix the price
than havu it pass a bill for municipal
ownership But he qualified that state

Reoval
DistrictAttorney Jerome this after
noon asked about the charges made
against him by William N Amor at
Aba yesterday sold
Aa I have only read the head line
I do not know whether I correttly un
d iMbat Mr Amory 1s reported
to hare said I have known him
hav sad iwn h ta
many years and while there were
some facts that to many have thrown
doubt upon the Integrity of his mo
ires I always believed that the pri
mary motive which has controlled p
one conduct has been other than a selfish
one
tHe has ta a number of years had
his mind
exclusively concentrated upon
street traction matters in the city up
whatever the charges o allegations he I
b made In regard to me I believe
bIeve
I
that ho Is sincerely convinced of their
conlce thel
truth and that they are not made I
from any motive of personal hostility
or for any political pro hOtty
The proposition with which be I I
dealing seems to him s plain that he I
cannot understand how anybody can i
differ with him except from sinister
motives
