Washington1. Jnn. IS. When the Sen

rnnslclcrotlon of tho nomination of John
Skclton Williams to ho Comptroller of
the Currency, as It will probably ilo to
morrow. It Is likely that there will bo
mni. comment on tho mystery surround
leg ilia origin of n statement printed In
i, Washington 7'fme on Novcmocr ..,
the day after tho acquisition by tho Mun
sey Trust Company of the United States
Tlil statement wan printed In Frank
A. Munscy's Washington Time under the
caption: 'Treasury backs tho Munsey
Trust" Tho nllegcd statement from tho
Treasury Department aroused lnlBna
lion among local bankers. For example.
It contained tho following:
The Munsey was the best iuallfled bank
In Washington to handle the situation.
This company has the largest reserve
fund more cash on hand than perhaps
utiv other WnshlnRton Institution."
it was this part of the statement to
which tho local bankers objected and
which appears to hnve been wholly un
warranted when the financial condition
of the Munsey Trust Company, as shown
by Its statement of Its condition at tho
close of business October 21. Is com
pared with the known condition and re
sources and condition of other financial
Institutions In Washington.
Dsnlnla liy JlcAdon and William.
Some time after this alleged ortlclal
xiit.mrnt nnneared In Mr. Munsey's news
paper it n explanation was put out that
neither Secretary McAdoo nor Assistant
w-relarv Williams had knowledge 01 11,
but that ono of the prlato secretaries was
responsible for it. However, as late as
December 7 the Times In a lead written
tn nn Interview given out by Frank A.
Munsey while the Munsey deal was under
criticism, said f Mr. Munsey s siaiemeins
He states tho facts concerning the re
sources of tho Munsey Trust Company
facts which moved the Treasury to reter
to It as the concern best equipped to
hanritn tlm emergency."
Mlltnn K. Alles. vice-president of the
UIbkk National Hank, sought to read this
statement before the Senate Banking
Committee last week as tending to show
that Assistant Secretary Williams had
shown favoritism to the Munsey Trust
Company, of which his brother. It. Lan
caster Williams. Is n director.
Senator Heed of Missouri raised a pro
test against the leading of tho statement,
but Senator Hrlstow Insisted that It
should go In. Finally Stuart Oliver of the
Munsey Trust Company of llaltlmore,
who was nt tho committee hearing und
.hn had carried on the negotiations on
behalf of Fronk A. Munsey for the taking
over of the United States Trust company,
asked permission to explain the state-

i Oliver) wrote the statement nt tne re
nuest of soino ouo In authority on Mr.
M.M....V!. npwsnaner to use ns an edl-
tnrl.il on the situation, and the statement,
Iv mistake, was published as an otllclal
statement from the Treasury Department.
This was the tlrct time that such an
explanation of tho origin of the statement
Had ever been offered. Other explanations
had been given, nmonff them the state
nunt that one of the private secretaries
at the Treasury Department had written
Mrnntor Weeks Suspicions.
After Mr. Oliver had made hla disclosure
to the commlttco Senator Weeks suggested
t Mt the statement bore ovldcnco of having
licit put out by the Treasury Department.

" tn. latent disclosures as to its oilsln aro

As published the statement was as fol
