Al.oNY. Feb. 20. New York's finan
cial supremacy will be doomed If tho
Legl.ilntlire pastes the bill Introduced
tii the Instance of Gov. Sulzcr iirovtdlng
for the Incorporation of stock ex
change, said .Tobn G. Mllburn, counsel
tor the New York Stock Exchange, to
day nt n hearing before tli! Senate and
Assembly .Itullclary nnd Codes commit
tees. "This would bo the most unfortunate
piece of legislation that could be put
on tho wtntute books," declared Mr Mil
bum. "It makes It a crime for a man
to belong to an association and buy
and sell securities It that association
Is not Incorporated. You say that here
after It shall bo a crime for a man to
do perfectly legitimate business to
nhlch ho Is entitled hy membership In
in association for which he paid his
"Your bill', authorizes the New York
Sloclt Exchange to do a banking busi
ness. It doesn't engage In that busi
ness, so this Is n new authority to en
gons In tho business of lending and bor
rowing money. I'm wondering who
wantt the exchanges to have that
power. No well conducted exchange
"You want the .Superintendent of
Ranks t oapprove all by-laws of the
xchang. There's no grievance with
respect to our by-laws, so this Is just
another piece of radical legislation for
which therejs no call.
Don't Krrp nooks.
"Then you provide, that there shall bo
nn examination by tho Superintendent
of Banks of nil books of tho Stock Ex
change. The Stock Exchange has no
business for whicn It should keep
books. It buys and noils no stocks,
ha.i no money, has no business or
orders to execute. I don't see what
a Superintendent of Banks Is to do
when ho goes down there. Tie can only
find the books of individual brokers,
but they arp not tho Stock Exchange.
"Now there's your bill to Incorporate
stock exchanges. You think that all
will ho white as driven snow after It
goes Into effect If ever a mountain
labored and brought forth a mouse, so
far ns tho correction of evil Is con
cerned. It Is this bill."
Other Hpcakers urged upon tho com
mittees tho necessity of not affecting
the open market of the exchange by at
tempting to regulate it through Incor
poration. They riectaro that tho In
corporation bill ould not give th
State any more supervision than Is
now enjoyed, whllo It would rob tho
exchange governors' board of the rigid
disciplinary powers It possesses. The
result would be a degeneration of the
exchange, and many of its beat mem
bers would bo only too ready to sell
their seats and tako their business to
Won't Come Back.
"And when It trtics It won't come
hiv.h, evon ir tho laws are amended,"
said H. II. Boycsen of Sullivan & Crom
well couiiM'l for the Consolidated Stock
Exchange. He believed moro time
should be given the Stock Exchango
men in which to prepare careful briefs
for the committees to show what will
result If the bill passes.
There was a difference of opinion
among tht Stock Exchange men re
garding the bill which prevents tho
New York Stock Exchange from dls
( rimiimtliig against the Consolidated
Exchange. The New York Stock Ex
i hango members declared that the rule
prohibiting them from doing any trad
ing with members of the other ex
i liange was a protection to members
of the New York Stock Exchange and
had no other purpose, while those who
favored the bill took tho opposite view.
As n means of driving the bucket
Miopu out of business II. II. Boycson
of the Consolidated Exchange suggested
that the bill provide that brokers
must deliver to customers within
twenty four hours after a transaction
memoranda, derrlblng the securities,
the name of tho buyer or seller, to
gether with tho day, hour nnd minute
at which the transaction took place,
nnd making failure to do this a felony.
Tho eleventh bill preventing brokers
from trading in Kecuritlfs of a cor
poration which luui not tiled with the
Secretary of State n quarterly report
of Its business within live days after
the end of the tiuarter was opposed by
all tho broker! becauro they claimed
large corporation would be utterly un
able to comply with Its provisions.
William C Van Antwerp extended to
the four legislative, committees an In
vitation to go to Now York and spend
a day or two Investigating tho work
ings of tho Stock Exchango so that
they might bo ablo to go about their
work less blindly.
"Aerlde.ntH ami mishaps havo oc
curred on tho Stock Exchango desplto

Rers," said Mr. Van Antwerp. "Ho In
national biinkn things have happened
despite the watchfulness of bank ex
aminers, so m railroads, whora wrecks
have occurred In spite of tho block sig
nal systems, and no In churches. All
we ooino here for Is to invoke a spirit
of fair play from thu Legislature."
Object srut flair,
Mr. Van Antwerp objected to a, pro
vision or the bill permitting tho sale
of the seat of nn Insolvent member of
tho Stock Exchango at public auction
lo tho highest bidder.
"Shall wo have nothing, to y u to
who shall bo a member of the Slock

do away with tho safeguards with whl:h

W. C. Van Antwerp read tho remarks
of H. K. Pomeroy, a former president
of the New York Stock Exchange, who
was compelled to tako an early eve-

"You gentlemen havo a hard task
beforo you In trying to enact proper
laws from the mass of bills before you.
My own feeling is that the best thing
jou can do Is to shelve the whole lot
and lot tho exchange work out Its own
reforms, as it Is earnestly trying to do."
Calvin E. Keach of Lanslngburg, who
has been a Oreenba-cker and a radical
in politics for some years back, was tho
only lay advocate of the bills Gov. Sul
ze'r could Induce to come forward.
"I am here as tho representative of
Gov, Sulrer," said Mr. Keach, "al
though I do not claim that tho Gov
ernor Is bound by my statements. Tho
Governor expected to havo Thomas A.
Lawson hero from Boston In advocacy
of these bills, hut when ho learned thin
morning Mr. Lawaon was not coming
I was called upon to till the breach."
Mr. Keach made a radical attack upon
Wall Street. Ho was followed by Charlen
II. Kendall, president of tho New York
Bank Note Company, who related tho
story of tho New York Stock Exchango
trying to put his company out of busi
ness. It was 10 o'clock to-night beforo tho
opponents of tho bills concluded their
arguments. Tim first speaker In favor
of tho bills was ex-Senator Charles A.
Mr. Towne termed tho regulation of
