Not Inclined to Let New

Charles P. Mellon, president of the
Now Haven, despite his offer to do so.
prnhahly will not he permitted to testify
about negotiations between his road and
the ('.rami Trunk. He might. In the
opinion of the Federal prosecutors, gain
immunity from prosecution thereby, al
though he hn.i offered to waive Im
munity. Certain officials connected with the
rase yeatcrday gave It as their opinion
that the (Jrand .fury proceedings have
gone, too far and that too much haa
been disclosed to make It desirable to
give Immunity to the New Haven head.
It la their belief that such Immunity
would automatically be his despite the
waiver. Kven If Mr .Mellen should
appear before the fnterstute Commerce
Commission nnd testify, neither under
path nor subpn'na. It Is asserted that
there would still be a basis for an ap
peal on his part should the case go
Therefore there Is little likelihood
that Mr. Mellen will be put under suh
pnrna to appear before the Grand Jury
fir before any Inquiry board of the Inter
state Commerce Commission or the
O'Shaughnessy committee of the House.
As Mr Mellen Is the only official of
the New Haven who knows all the facts
ef any agreement with the Grand Trunk
about trattlc In New Knuland the Gov
ernment's attorneys will experience
great difficulty In making out a case
If hN testimony Is not available.
Word came from Washington, how
ever, that Attorney-General Wleker
tham Is not Inclined to permit the pos
sibility of Mr. Mellen obtaining Im
munity In the case. He haa directed
I'nlted States Attornry Wlso and As
sistant Attorney-General Jesse C. Ad
klns, who tins charge of the case, to
nwkc a study of the legal bearings of
President Mcllen's offer. In Washing
ton as here the opinion Is that Mr.
Mellen would automatically get Immu
nity If permitted to testify.
It wus said at the offices of the New
Haven that a march had been stolen on
the Federal authorities by having Pres
ident Mellen suhpir'.aid to appeur at a
hearlns In .Ww Haven District Attor
nc.v Wise was asked If the Interstate
Commerce Commission was conducting
such a hearing .it New Ilnven and he
replied thai he did not know.
Mr Wise was asked what effect a
subpirna to appear before the O'Sh.uigh

have on Mr. Mcllen's status as far as

The presence of K. J. Chamberlln,
president of the Grand Trunk, here
yesterday save rise to the report that
he was about to appear before the
Grand Jury. He declined to dlscuH.s
"T am here," he said, "You can draw
jrour own conclusions."
District Attorney Wise gave prac
tically the same answer to questions
about the Grand Trunk head. He re
marked, however, that Mr. Chamberlln'
had not sent him any letter offering to
waive Immunity, lis Mr Mellen did.
It Is not thought likely thnt Mr.
Chamberlln will be asked to testify be
fore the Grand Jury before a dellnlte
decision about Mr. Mellen Is reached.
Frederick J. Mcl.eod, chairman of the
Public Utilities Commission of Massa

before yesterday's session of the Jury,
which adjourned at 1 o'clock. H was

of the New Haven and head of Its

I.viiia.vai'oms, Dec. n. On the cross

of that city, it was brought out to-day In
the trial of the dynamite case that during

, assaults upon non-union men It was
, stated thai fsH.noo was sjient in New York
alone in a single, year irt furtherance of
I the strike.
I li'arrell was questioned concerning a
J long list of assaults, but in most instances
' he said he did noi know the men and had
J no recollection ns to whether they had
been arrested. He said he remembered
that Thomas Slattery, business agent of
, the ironworkers, wns arresiisl about

treasurer although he knew he was in
jail at Ixm Angeles; that he contributed
to a fund lor McNamara's defence and
that his local responded to the axhehsnieut
for tho same purpose.
The District Attorney read from a
niitnlor of letters that tho witness had
written to McNamara and from replies
from .McNamara that he admitted he had
received. One of these letters from
Phillips under date of March 'Js, mil,
rend in part

'Ihe stock yards corporation, known ns
the I'nion Stock Yard and Transit Com

place aro to celebrate his birthday with all
the hurrah they can muster. The third
engagement is to dine with the Cotpmercial
Club of Chicago on January II. Ileyond
these three the Governor declares no
drafts upon his time will be honored.
He expects to be too busy for that.
The Governor has no social engage,
ments for the Inst week of his stuy here.
He will work several hours each day but
will not give up entirely his open alrexer
else. His first task and one which he
began yesterday will bo the drafting of
his message to the Legislature of New
Jersey, which meets early in Janu.ny. He
has before this made it known that his
suggestions will not go beyond the plat
form adopted by the Democratic State
convention. That document, however,
is sufficiently long to occupy him for some
time. Ihe Governor was lumsell chair
man of the committee that framed it and
it may be taken for granted that its
pledges for many reforms will ho carried
out if he can manage it. Not the least
of these is a pledge to call n constitutional
convention for the revision of the present
rather cumbersome embodiment of the
State's fundamental law.
It is very likely that during the coming
week there will be a great deal of letter
writing in Glen Cove. Hy this time Mr.
Hrynn lias revived the letter which sug
gesled n consultation with him, but there
are going to be consultations with others,
nnd the President-elect, having been
treated with consideration during his
stay here, is now anxious lo get into
communication with tho leaders of his
party. Aside from his correspondence
and the writing of his message Gov. Wil
son also will be engrossed for some of the
tliim in a perusal of many books and
papers which he brought hero with him
For several days Ihe direct cable from
Bermuda to Halifax has leen broken
and communication over that route will
probably be Interrupted during the re
mainder or Gov. ilsoirs stay. The only
way in which ho can now be rcaclu-d by
the insistent is over tho Key West to
Panama cable, and the cost of using that
medium is hufiicieut to stagger many.
Ho will have only one more opportunity
to pay up insufficient postage on letters
sent him bv persons seeking favors and
then he will leave these isliuids for at
least four veins. His visit here is going
to be tlm central fact in advertising l!ei
mudu for the next decade.
It is not without some concern that
those who accompany tho Governor look
forward to tho laying nsido of white
ducks, canvas shoes, light felt hats, bath
ing suits and swagger MlckH for iiubill
ments more adequate to the climatic
rigors wlilcn a ncnovoient uuu Mream
temjs'rs for the Hsjpo hero. 'I ho air
is cleur and soouuni. Activity is as.
foreign to the place as is repose to llroad
wuy. Yet there is no more of laziness
than there is of eagerness. Men do their
tasks without listlessnesa and without
enthusiasm. Everywhere prevails th
atmosphere of the golden mean, tho
pleasant miniiio way. nomenow one una
n feeling that even if there wan ever any
excitement in Itermuda it would bo dull,
lo the en ovment of these things Gov.
Wilson has given himself up almost en

over at tho murine gardens, as they nro
called, places out near the reefs where you
look tlirougu glass nottomcu noats to sen
