shail be served with tho colors and part
in reserve The beginnings of this plan
were enacted Into law last summer
through a compromise not particularly
a grin-able to Representative Hay. It Is

inward a contraction. Representative

one-third of tho present cavalry strength
to reduce tho army. Gen, Wood has

Washington, Nov. IB.--A big row
has develojied In the money trust com
mittee of tho House and Samuel Unler
myer is likely to retlro ns counsol,
Tills Information was obtained to
night on top of the resignation of K. 11
Karrar of New Orleans as counsel for the
Mr Karrar represented the conservative
wing of the committee while Unter
myer was chosen by the radicals.
Chairman Pujo ami other members of
the committee with conservative leanings
are dissatisfied with the way the Inquiry
has been conducted. There will Im a
showdown between the two factions of
the commltteo at a meeting to-morrow.
Mr. Untermyer arrived hero to-night
nnd had a long conference with Chairman
Pujo and Representative Glass of Vir
ginia, a member of tho commit toe It is
the understanding that in his talk with
Mr Pujo the New York lawyer made an
effort to smooth over the troubles that
have disturlted the affairs of tin com
mittee, for several weeks.
The charge is made by Democrats un
friendly to Mr. Untermyer that from
the outset of the money trust inquiry
he hns attempted to usurp prerogatives
that lielong to th committee itself For
example, it is stated that Mr Untermyer
has drawn up a bill embodying a plan
of currency and Ivinking reform and
that he submitted it to rsons prominent
in the financial world
It may U stated on authority that Mr.
Untermyer will not lie rmitted id follow
his own devices in the examination of
witnesses that will appear lfore the
money trust committee This will lm
made plain at to-morrow's meet J ng and
many Democrats believe that when Mr
Untermyer is informed that his activities
are to lie restricted he will hand in his
Friends of Mr Pujo declare that it is
his intention tn exercise fully the func
tions -ested in the chairman and that 1
accordingly he will take charge of the
examination of witnesses
There hns been had feeling in tho money
trust committee ever since Mr Unter
myer was retained The New Vork
lawyer was not the choice of Chairman
iljn and his npointment was disap
proved by certain conser-ati-e House
leaders. It is generally known in Wash
ington that Mr Untermyer was select.-d
as a means of placating House radicals
at a time when the charge wa made
openly by them that Chairman Pujo and
the majority of his associates were de
termined to "whitewash" the money
trust. Shortly thereafter, at the instance
of Chairman Pujo, II Karrar of New
Orleans, ex-president of the American
Bar Association, was retained as asso
When seen to-nlKlit Mr Untermyer
denied positively t tint friction had de
veloped lietween himself nnd any member
of the House committee.
"Are you going to remain as counsel
of. the committee" Mr. Untermyer was
"I am," he replied emphatically.
According to reports there is a reason
for the retirement of Mr. Karrar that is
not dselosed on the surface It was
aid by friends of Mr. Pujo that Karrar
resigned because. Mr. Pujo evpeofcl to
havo difficulties with Mr.
and would be in a better position to ileal
with the situation summarily if Mr Karrar
was not identitied with the case.
In his telegram announcing his resigna
tion Mr. Karrar deolares that evidence
has already been obtained tending to
disclose the existence nf a money trust
which he says exercises the siwer of
creating or preventing panics at will.
Mr. Karrar asserts that State anil Kederal
legislation is necessary to regulate tho
operations of the so-called money trust.
. ' , .
Complications and exigencies have arise,,
In my professional Hffalrs hlrh make It
Imperative that I should resign my post
as counsel for your honorable committee in
the money trust investigation. I am not
In a position to make the sacrifice required
Io give up my whole practice and deote

duty to do in order to serve you as you
hould bo served.

matter thoroughly and in the absence of

u panic on the Stock K.xchangit at uny time
they wish, as they did on October 21, 1007,
li',withdrawlntr their loans from brokers on
tho floor of that exchunje.
I profoundly appreciate tho honor con
ferred upon mo by the committee in naming
me as ono of their counsel, and it is with
the greatest resret that I And myslf unable
to continue In their servlre In an Investiga
tion which Is of the Upermost Importance

I know will disclose abuses which require
legislation both State nnd Kederal.
I shall make no claim against the com
mittee for profesMfyyl services, but will
forward a statement of my actual expenses
for the consideration of the committee.
In accordance with a call issued some
weeks ago by Chairman Pujo tho money
trust committee will assemble In this
city to-morrow , Nearly all tho members
will be present. It is tho purpose of tho
committee to map out tho programme
for the winter, At to-morrow's session
u list of witnesses who oro to be called
will bo made up. Chairman Pujo will
urge that tho hearings bo concluded by
Deconibor ID. It Is Mr. Pujo's hope and
ho is working to that end that the commit -tee
shall coinploto its work of research
by December 20 and then buckle down
to the task of preparing a report to bo
made to tho House. Whether Mr. Pujo's
plan in this regard will be approved by
the committee remains to be ween,
There has been friction in tho money
trust committee from tho beginning of
the inquiry. It now develops that some
fettling has grown on tho part of Repre

While General Manager Dice of the
Reading was on tho stand to-day Vioe
Presidctrt Voorhees continually coached
the attorneys for the railroads, but Mr
Dice made a poor witness and was asked
to Htep aside. K. H. Crossley, chief of

answers offered by Crossley former. Gov

Broad in its scope, sweeping in its power, it is only fair to add
that it is almost brutal in its naked picturing of the lust for wealth
and the hunger or love.
It is not for those who fear the fighting force of a strong man,
nor is it the unfolding of a lovely life.
It is first of nil a great, absorbing, haunting story, then it is
perhaps a lesson "wt, taken all in all its bigness, its insight into
larger phases of our life it seems destined to rank as one of the
great examples of modern fiction.
