Mr. Wtaa rrfused to dMcuag tha
acopa of the mraatigatlon, but made
the followtnc atatcmenl roncarntng th-.
Offar made by Mr. Mellen.
Mr. Mellen baa apparantly gtven to tha
newapapera a lettar whlch he addrea-ert
to m?'. aaaumlng that an Inveatigatlon
la belng oonduetad before the grand Jur>
About the matter referred to In th's
jetter, I am aakrd whether l would '-all
Mr. Melhn aa a wltneaa.
My anawar to this Inquiry is that ir
.in .iff'i -. baa baea commlttad, accord*
iug to Mr. Mellen'a kttcr it nraet ha\e
been commltted hy him. AmuihIiu that
the Inquiry ls ns to an alleged \lolation
ct the eo-.alled Sherman law, and that
any arltneea eailed to testify a* to auch
\ olatlofl would obtain Immunity, lt i?
plaln that any prosecutttig attornay who
w.Mil.i rall BOCtl a wttneas iinoVr auch
< Ireumatan.ea would rtth.-r ba an Irttot or
B erook. I do not purpose to ]>ut m> stit
in either eafegory.
On tha other hand. if the giand 1'JrT
ahould accada to Mr MaBen'a requeat 1
am of the opinion that If he ahould ap
I ? before the grand Jury voiuotariU
and* not iu obedlence to a aubpoena he
would obtain no Immunity.
Kvery cltizen la Riiaranteed hy the CB8>
atitution r.gamat noing compelled to he a
wltneaa againet hlmself. This ri^ht ran
he walved. The Immunity utatute U a
aubstitute or an equlvalent for the con
stitutional rlght. In mv opinion. aa tha
right may be waiwd, 50 may the equi\a
k-nt.
In regard to the po&sible acore of
inquiry Mr. Wise only polnted to Sec
tion - of the Shernian law, arhleh ha*
confarrad upon the government the
broadaat powers to proeecute any at?
tempt to monopoli/e atiy part of Intar
state conDBareo.
A further indieation of the laiger
actlvitiaa of ihe grand Jut> ?as found
