(ilobo Hank of Tloxton occurred after
the ciiiupHlKn Hitd U',000 sluireH of Ho?

market.
"Had not the blocks of the 1 ton ton

wltnec."
.Mr Hurrauo could not recall any of
the (li'tnlla about tlm purcliMHcH of thctc
copper mocks or the Invmetiso prollt
which Mr I ntcrmyer contendi'd w.n
maili' throuBh the mile of the companies

In AnvilR-umuttKl at one time, hut could
not recall the detail.''. He admitted that
all hi record. chev.-k bitiltx, check MI1I18
and other papers relating to Amalga
mated had been destroyed. He destroyed
them In 1'.'04 when Mr. lJiwsnn and Mr.
Hotcers fell out. Mr. I'ntennyer wanted
to know If tlilx row between I.awHnn and
ItoKcr was not cttusfd by Mr. I.awson's
complaint over a division of prntll In
Atnalnatnated. Mr. HurniRO contended
that the trouble nrone over a deal lu

tienrK'- W Perkins In bfRlnnlni,- his
testimony save his present occupation
ns a "student of economics." He denied
that the HteelCorpomtlon bad IxniKht Its
own stock except for the purpose of
profit sharing with employees. He con
sidered It improper for any director of
a enmpnny to deal In stock of that com
pany Hi- favored the fullest publicity
In regard to financial and corporate
affairs and thought this was ono way of
minimizing speculation.
Mi. 1'erklns was one of the original
votlnir trustees of the Hankers Trust
'ntnpaur Hn could not recall any
special leason lor the creation of the
voting trust, and when asked whether
or not lie approved this form of control
said It depended on the circumstances.
He denied th" existence of the voting
trust hail been kept a secret Mr
1'erklns expressed the belief that the
minority stockholders in financial and
corporate institutions ought to have a
legal light to bo represented on boards
of directors provided this right could
lw safeguarded against abite.
Mr. 1'erklns testified that he knew
verv little about the operations of tho
Stock Kxehtinge. He was in favor,
however, of the Federal Incorporation
of the exchange.
Mr. IVrklnx ppresd the belief that
It would be very hard to prevent
manipulations In stocks.
At this point one of the committee,
men asked the witness's opinion as to
what would happen If the Legislature
enacted a law prohibiting gambling In
stocks.
"I think It would be beneficial If it
could be drawn nnd enforced," said Mr
Perkins.
"Gambling Is gambling." said Mr.
Perkins, referring to the farmer who
speculates on his future crops nnd on
the real estate operator who Invests
money In property for a rise.
Mr. Perkins was In favor of small
boards of directors for banks and con
centrated responsibility rnth'T than the
scattered responsibility represented by
tlm present large board".
It Doesn't Worry Mr. I'rrklna.
Mr. I'ntennyer read the resources of
seven of the big Institutions of New
York, amounting to $l,3!'S,000,ooo, and
of tlm two life Insurance companies,
the Mutual and Kqultable. amounting to
II.2S9.O0O.O0ii. He then put this formal
question to Mr. Perklna.
"Assuming now that the situation In
as described In exhibits 131A anil 134C.
and assuming further that the business
of making the Issues of the giest inter
state corporations has during the past
five years been conducted mainly on
Joint account between Messrs. J. I'. Mor
gan & Co., tho First National Hank and
the National Mty Hank of New York.
Iifce, Hlgglnson & Co. and Kidder, Ptu
body .t Co. of Huston, and the Illinois
Trust and Havings Hank and the I lrsl

tha flnanclal power of the afllllatlons of
these hanks and banking houses and
their control over financial, railroad
and Industrial corporations, please, state
whether or not, and If so, to what ex
tent, this concentration nnd control of
money and credit constitute a peril to
the prosperity of the country and slate
also, if you will, the reusons for your
conclusions."
Mr. Perkins acknowledged that ho
had been mulling over this question In
written form all night, hut that It had
not caused him to loso any sleep, He ob
jected to giving an opinion upon as
sumptions which he had not been able to
Investigate. He contended also that the
Individual clement entered largely Into
the. question of tho business done by J.
I. Morgan & Co,
Faith In Mr. Marfan.
"Jf J, l Morgan should make n bond
Issue from the Desert of Sahara," said
Mr. I'erklne, "und put his name to It
It would be subscribed for, not lwcausn
he Is connected with thoao Institutions,
but becauso hn has lived nn earnest
and tremendously strenuous ltfo In ths
study of these questions for half n
century and thn peoplu have bought
securltlea that his name, hna been put
lo and havn believed that they cami
out right."
j Mr. Perkins contended that concen
1 tratlon had besn going on In all de
partments of thn country, had been go
jlnsr on rtffht In W,-uthtDcton and was
represented by the method which the
Ftljo committee Itself had adopted In
Conducting Its Invest Unit Ion when It se
lected "tho ablest matt In the lountry"
to conduct this hearing.
"I should like to get un answer to my
question," snapped Mr I'nterntjrr
Mr. Perkins finally acknowledged that
ho saw perils In concentration unregu
lated and unsupervised. Later he nar
rowed this down to the slntetnent that
hn believed concentration could easily
be a peril.
Mr. Perkins contended that It nil the
banks nnd trust companies or Urn lead
ing ones in New York were concen
trated In tho hands of bankers whoso
business It wns to issue credits It Would
nnt constitute a peril If the transactions
were under lovernmeiit regulation. Ho
would consider It, however, a peril If
one smalt set of men having control
over Industries and railroads were to
get control of thn leading banks of tlm
J country unit their assets.
J. Is not that the situation to-diiy" A.

feller to-night that Dr. Illchanlson. who
I'Miinined him lti Miami for the I'u.lo
committee had reported to the com

more scrloin than Mr. Hockefeller's
personal jyslclim had Indicated his
son. William O. ltockefellc r, gave out
the first statement h" has made ner
In the ciuse. Ho said:
"Physicians had differed In their
statements to us of father's condition.
We knew that one of his vocal cords
was seriously affected. Wo "ind nnt
been told until this report that the curd
was destroyed. We knew, however,
that he was a sick man.
"There bud Is-en some insinuations
that my father was trying to run uwny
from the committee f course that
H not so, and wn are. of course grati
fied to have the committee's own
phislctan report to the committee and
tho public that his condition Is as he
stated. Uf. ltlchardson, of course, said
no word to us of what his report
would be, and we did not ask hlin "
In the e vent of Mr. l'ujn and Mr Cn
tcrmyer coming here to take his father's
deposition as Indicated. Mr. Rockefeller
said he would make what opposition he
could.
"As a son having a sick father. I could
not assume any other position " he --aid.
"I do not believe father i ould talk for
two hours. He cannot carry on an nrdl
nary conversation. His voice thickens
so he has to atop In a few minutes. This
Is not a court proceeding. I do not be
lieve the committee can require him tn
testify under the circumstances."
"Have you taken lecnl advice in the
matter'" he was asked.
"Nn," said he, "not on this point, but
I shall refer It right awaj to our coun
sel In New York. 1 don't believe there Is
any precedent for Just such a case I
do not believe he can be made to testify,
and. as I say, we shall certainly oppose

however, that lm will be here this eve

search was made for them they were
not found. It was reported that they
were present to take note of anything
the speukers might say and possibly to
arrest some of them on warrants which
It was said they had secured late last
evening.
When the strikers learned that the
detectives W'tTr. present they weft- ex
cited to such a point that tlm meeting
was Interrupted for some time.
"If we find those spies they Hill
never get out eif here alive," said one
strike leader as he started off to look
for them. "These, men lu re am In nn
amiable frame of mind and If they find

If Fttnr hud reached town last night
hn would have found a iiumlicr of
union men waiting to act as a guard for
