WtsiitMiTON. .tune 13.- The Demo
crat . c.tmp was thrown Into confusion
rt-rt ii . when Hubert T. Henry of
chairman of tho House Committor-
on Utiles, prcfentcd a bill designed
i .ne the way for a renewnl of the
! -, pilry Into the so-called money trust.
With the Wilson Administration und
the responsible House leaders strongly
opposed to the Henry bill or any other
fiT.-rt to renew the money trust In
quiry at this time there t-eems to 1e
alselutcly no probability of favorable
n Hon on the measure at this session.
Mr. Henry, however, knows how to
make trouble and unless he can be
pacified be Is likely to be a disturbing
factor for the Administration.
In a statement accompanying the
nl.l Mr. Henry declares that Wall Street
conspirators arc back of the present
movement for banking and currency
legislation and that "their only aim is
n pass tile Aldrioh bill veneered over
so aw to tool the people."
Whether -Mr. Henry 'Intended It or
not, bis bill anil the accompanying
-Mtenv nt are accepted as a tleelara-
a of war by radical Democrats on the
Wi nittratlon plan to put through u
i an nc and currency revision bill at
- - s on of Congress. It h.if been
i. i more apparent dally that
"p :-'! nt Wilson's currency pro
irr.min' m lo have a rocky road.

M"'i-" Uules Committee to-day has

i.nog the lln'S of the Pujo bill passed
ly the Hmi p at th" last sit-xlon at the
instance of the money trust Investiga
tors, but which failed In thp Senate.
Mr, Henry declares that because of the
'allure of Congress to clothe the I'ujo
committee with such powers the Inquiry
barely touched the surface of the facts
i.iilcrlying the concentration of money
it was Mr. Henry who drafted the res.
Union upon which the Pujo Invostlga
ion as based. The Underwood leader--hlp
made every effort to head off the
nqilry. but without result. In two
arty caucuses the money trust rcsolu
on was defealpd. but at a third the
Hniso leaders had to yield.
Mr. Henry lost only In his proposal to
'c llio Investigation conducted by n
ii-einl committee. On this point he had
i compromise on a motion made by Mr.
ntlerwood, who moved thnt the work
", entrusted to the Committee on Hank
nt: and Currency.
Attitude f the Leaders.
T-'-i history Is recalled by radicals in
mi .tt'iy with Mr. Henry by way of
r. nent on the present attitude of the
leaders. The leaders are very
- ic to a renewal of the money trust;
f nation and will do everything pos.

f I ni between tho radicals and the
i atlve.s In such a way as possibly
I 'ai the plans of the Administration.

"To the Editor of THE SUN:
"The reports referred to in your
message concerning the existence of an
anti-American feeling in Mexico
caused by the failure of the Gocern

this Coternment are absolutely false.
I cannot conceal the fact that, this
republic hating been recognized by the
leading nations of the world, we are
at a loss to understand the strange
action of the .American Coternment,
which, we feel continced, is not in
accordance with the views of the great
American people. But it is neter
theless certain that the reports re
ferred to are fundamentally false.
You may rest assured that the citizens
of North America enjoy now as they
always hate done in this country all

Coroner J. J. Phelan opened his In

The Coroner's Inquest lu ought out a
vivid recital of the events Immediately
preceding the fatal crash and the tear
ful assertion of the engineer that he
dltl all he could to avoid It, but that the
brakes upon which he relied failed tn
work. With equal determination, th
declaration was made on behalf of the
railroad officials that their Investiga

were In perfect condition anil that tho
engineer simply disregarded danger

Coroner Plitian had understood from
a letteu sent to him by the railroad
company that I hey would have thn
cars in the wreck lu the Stamford yards
for him lo inspect m the afternoon.
When he heard that the car about
which he was particularly concerned
had been tm rut ti be stopped his inquest
to ask a lallroud lawyer who was in
the court room what It meant. He was
told frankly that the railroad officials
had ordered the Skylark to be set on
fire anil destloyed.
One more mime was added to tha
death list. Gregory T. Humes, n re
porter for the New York U'orM, died
In his mother's arms at the Stamford

The sympathies of every man and
woman in the oily court room, whether
casual observer or one whose friends xjr
relatives had lost their lives In the
wreck, went out to Fnglneer Doherty

feeling of resentment that came with

Ills tearful face or he.-trd his pain-'

friends he had gono tn his home In
New Haven and spent thn night with
his young wife and their twD llttla
children. No one doubted that It had
been a night of scrrow for him.
His story wn.s set with dramatic
moments. Before he took tho stand
tho railroad officials had given out
tin account of his twelve yenrs of ser
vice. At 19 years of uge ho began to
fire an engine nnd no demerit mark had
ever been placed ngalnst his name.
