from a aerloua operutlon performed laat

did undergo a minor operation, but It
waa not serious or even painful and he

some sort of an operation Ae his

The Qrand Jury has temporarily
dropped the Hipp charges, but they will
be taken up later with particular refer
sne to the aBeged police "frame-up" by
whloh Blpp waa arrested tn Atlantic
City on charges made by two women of
no reputation. It la eald that the pollce
men who got theae charges together
mil ir overreached themselves, for when
the accusations became public and P rp

policemen gave ... to bitter enmity and
resentment, and U now detertnltied to

BJpa la his etoy to the Grand Jury
yesterday mentioned the names of an In
spector and a rtptaln In the Police
Department, but was unable to give evi
dence which would warrant the arand
Jury in taking action However, a Un
of Inquiry has been opened up which
wfll be followed.
Apparently Blpp haa determined to tall
all he knows about vice conditions as
they prevailed during the days of hla
sstlvlty aa a keeper of a disorderly
hotel In Harlem. He aald yesterday
at he waa going clear to the bottom
that hla revelations would surprise
Tork.
tpp at the same time repeated a story
he told to the Grand Jury to the effect
that ha understood a large sum bad been
raised to keep him out of the State, and
that he had acoepted T0 of the money
while la Newark. The reports of the
amount vary from 11.000 to tt.vOu. Ed
ward J. Newell, i tpp'e lawyer, and the
lawyers for Fog deny the story Blpp
jakt Newell knew about the transaction,
whtcb Newell flatly denlee. Blpp saya bs
haa released Newell aa hla lawyer and
retained Solomon A. Hyman of No. Mi
Bast One Hundred and Twenty-first
atreet to represent him In case the police
make another attempt to Set nun on
criminal charges
Last night eight or ten buatnsss men
ot standing tried to get In to see Slpp.
but were not admitted. They had var
ious excuses for wanting to talk to h.tn.
but It Is surmised they intended to urge
him not to go farther with his es
poaurn It la likely no other police graft wit
nesses will bs heard by the Grand Jury
before next Monday, as tbey have arson
t4 also t ion cases and other matters to
work on that will bap them busy until

Here the committee snd spectator as
well as the counsel nd the witness
laughed.
For half an hour Mr I'ntermyer en
deavored In vain lo eeeurc a definite
answer tn his hvpothetlr al question, hut
Mr. Perkins sal dthat he could not as-
ume to know the facta assumed In the
question.
When Mr Perkins was cslled to the
st nd Samuel I'ntermyer. counsel for
the committee, asked:
"Whnt la your present occupation?"
"Well, I am a student Juat now." an
swered Mr. Perkins, with a smile. "I
slao spend conalderabls lime testifying
efore Omgresalonal committees."
Mr. Perkins told nf having been a
n ember nt the firm of J. P. Morgan
Vi. and of hla camnectlnn with the
'rilled Htatea Rleel Wri .ration He
waa still a dlrctor nnd member of the
'Inance Committee of the corporation,
le said, and had a great deal to do
with Its business organisation after
wns formed Mr Perkins aa a di
rector of the Hteel 'orio atlun and the
International Harvester Company Is a
defendant In the Oovernment'a suits for
the diasolutlcn of those concerns.
Aa Hamuol l.'ritermyer, counsel for the
committee, begun lo question lilm about
those two companies, there was much
speculntlon among Iswyers and others
present as to whether Mr Perklne's
answers would give him Immunity from
ny possible Government prosecution.
Mr. Perkins mid th. corporation
'bought Its own stock only, so far is
he knew, to be sold to employees under
profit sharing schemes.
We never knew of the corporation
buying Its own slock to protect It In
the market and know (.f no pools to
manipulate the m.nket In ateel stock.'1
he ssld.
Un you believe thst directors should

own corporations on advance Informa
tion secured by thsni through their con
nection with the corporation?" saked
Mr. I'ntermyer. "I do not," sild Mr
Perkins.
BELIEVES IN PUBLICITY FOR
CORPORATONS.
'The ftleel Corporation was the first
Wg corporation lo give entire MbMaltt
to Its affairs, was It not?" naked Mr.
ITnlermyer. "Yea. so far as I know."
Mr. Perkins said he be'leved all cor-
rporatlons siuuld give publicity to all
their affaire.
"Now, ai to the organisation of the
Harvester Company, thai wae mm
pui-tlcularly you.. Job. was It mil?" "It
was." snld Mr. Perkins.
Mr I'ntecmvrr told Mr. Perking that
he did not wish to ask any questions
that might bear upon the suit of the
Government against the Harvester
trust. "In fairness to myself and the
oomnilttee," ssld Mr. Perkins "I sug
gest that I have Just ' titled tn that
suit, and It would lie difficult for rue
to testify uluMit the Harvester Com
pany without Infringing on the matters
at lasbe."
Mr. I'ntermyer dropped the qucsflomi
Into Harvester Company after the wit
ness ssld he was a member of the
(Inance committee.
Mr. Pcrltlns said be waa one of the
original voting trustees of the Hankers'
Trust Company.
"What ueeful purpose la served by
plhotng the voting power of a trust com
pany In the hunda of few trustees?"
usked Mr. I'nterniyer.
Mr. Perkins answer ed that he believed
a voting trust wits used In organising a
new concern, to Insure Its being run
along certain lines Indorsed by the
1 metres.
"A few yonng men In Blew Tork who
met ocoaslonslly at dinner aad abo-it
town fait that there was an opening
for another trust romnany In Maw
Tork and we organised this one," he
ssld, and added that the Bankers'
Trust Company was the flrat financial
Institution organised ander a toting
trust.
Do you approve of ths continuance
of this voting trust?" aslked Mr. TJnter-inyer.
'Probably not," said Mr. Perkins, but
I em not eufrlrlently familiar with con
ditlons to-day to say."
He said he believed that minority
stockholdere of corporations should
have a proportionate representation r.f
the board of dlrectore. He and Mr. Un
trrmyrr argued over the legal standing
r thle question.
"Bo you or do you sot approve of a
ohangs in the law that would give the
minority stock of a oornoratloa a right
of repreesntauont" asked Mr. Unter-myer.
I certainly would approve of that
If it were properly eafegvarded aad
properly Introduced and Trranged so as
to oondnct It properly."
Mr. Perkins declared he did not be
lieve persons ought to have the power
to go out snd buy one or two shares of
stock nnd then demand representation
on a board of directors and "raise hob
with the Institution."

GIRL NURSE SOUGHT
WAHIirNOTON. Jan. IB. - William
Rocksfeller, Htandard HI millionaire, la
not too sick to testify briefly In the
Money Trust Inquiry. This was the
opinion given lo-dsy by lr. Richardson,
the committee's throat speclsllat, who
examined Rockefeller at Miami, Fla.,
last Sunday.
He said s long examination might be
dangerous tn ltockefeller's health, but
the'brlef questioning would not.
tar. Richardson gave It aa tils opin
ion that If the commutes desired to
question the oil magnate on a matter
of verry great Importance. Rockefeller
could endure about two hours ordeal
on the stsnd without danger.
The expert said that aluiough Rocke
feller's vocal cords were badly effected,
his voice could be heard for twenty
feet. He said that the millionaire was
a victim of ehaklng palsy, which would
make It lmiaslble to conduct an exami
nation In writing.
Dr. Richardson added that were lie
Mr. Rockefeller's physician he would
endeavor to protect him against the
strain of testifying. Chairman Pujo un
nounced the committee would decide
later whether to Insist on the testimony.
Dr. Richardson said that lie exam
ined Mr. It... kefeller at Miami. Fla., on
Sunday, Jan. It, that no one else was
present and that he spent an hour With
him. The affidavit presented by Dr.
Chappoll, Mr. Rockefeller's physician,
he snld, did not fully state the case.
"Mr. Rockefeller's condition Is more
serious than would be supposed fr.mi
reading Dr. Chappell'a affidavit," said
the witness.
Br. Klohardeon said that he found
that the right vocal ohord of the oil
magnate waa practically gone aad that
