ate, and Thomas A. Lawson of Bos
ton confor-ed with Chairman Honry
of tho Houso Rules Commlttoe, about
a proposed Congressional Investiga
tion. Senator Stono roso to a question of
personal privilege. Ho said that con
fidential communications concerning
tho honor of tho nation had fallen
Into Improper hands, but said bo had
no Information as to whether a "leak"

ho believed It would bo tracoxblo to
"If It bo truo that any publlo offi

said Senator Stone, "ho Is an un

possible, lio ought to bo dismissed

"I do know," Senator Stone con
tinued, "that things havo occurred In

tial communications with foreign
governments to the State Department
havo by soma means found their way

concern tho honor of tho nation. How
this has happened I do not know, but
It could have happened only through
the Instrumentality of employees. I
fear that this betrayal of public con
fidence is In some way traceable to
our civil service."
Senator Stone then denounced
Thomas W. Lawson for his recent
declaration that members of Congress
would shrink from an Investigation
Into stock market "leaks,"
"I despise these, sensational fakers
who aro always talking nbout publlo
bodies and publlo men," said he. "I
am sorry that tho newspapers should

After conferring with Mr. Lawson
for two hours, Chairman Henry of
the Houso Itulcs Committee issued
