Mr. Marshall refrained from giving

charged. The exchange of letters be.
gnu with the Invitation extended to Mr.
Marshall by the Judiciary Committee to
appear before it on June 23 and In one
hour's time answer all the charges
against him. In declining this Invitation
of the commltteo Mr. Marshall, In his

letter of June 21, points out tho utter
Impossibility of meeting tho charges of
the committee In the time allotted. In
splto of the fact that Congress had re
cently adjudged him In contempt for dis
paraging tho motives of tho sub-committee
Investigating his office, Mr. Mar
shall In this letter Bays tho whole effort
of that committee seemed to be directed
to getting evidence In support of the
charges without making any serious ef
fort to "ascertain the answer to any of
those various charges which they now
accept as truo and set forth In their re
Iort to tho whole Judiciary Committee
us findings of fact"
"It was freely predicted a long time
ngo,'' says Mr, Marshall, "that the sub
committee would not present charges
against mo, but would wind up its labors
by presorting some shirring and orfen
slvo report against mo. This has been
Strictures on Conduct.
"The method In which this Inquiry
has been conducted by the sub-committee,"
continues Mr. Marshall, "lias
created n widespread public belief that
they wero not trying to Investigate me,
but that nil their efforts were actuated
by a deslro to aid n fellow Congresman
who was Indicted, and make it a danger
ous and difficult thing for nny District
Attorney whose duty called upon hint
to prosecuto a memlier of Congress.
"In the report of the sub-committee
there arc n number of strictures on my
personal conduct and on the conduct
of my assistants and on the general con
i uct of the office of which 1 am tho
hi ad. So far as the report Involves
strictures on tho conduct of my assis
tants, I beg to say that 1 am personally
conversant with the real facts alluded to
in the report and that I take full re
sponsibility for the coinlu t if my as.
sltants and linvo had personal knowl
edge of everything they have done."
Mr. Marshall callu attention to the
fact that he whs not present or repre
sented at tho proceedings In which the
evidence against him was taken. Tho
derogatory statements made in the com
mttteo's report, ho insists, are all un
supported by facts. The prosecutor
takes Issue with tho finding of the sub
committee that although tho conduct of
Mr. Marshall's office was lax, there was
nothing proved against him to Justify Ills
limoval. Mr .Marshall tepllcs em
phatically thnt If he were guilty of tho
things charged ngalnst him by the sub
committee he deserves to be removed
from office. In tills connection he
"I ran hardly Imagine a lower stand
ard that could be set for public offi
cials than would bo set If the Judiciary
Committee on such a report ns this ad
vocated the dropping of the prosecution.
If I caused the indictment of any man
or woman for the purpose of aiding a
friend. If I failed to prosecute any case
for Improper reasons, if I prosecuted any
case out of malignity or cruelty, or If
my office Is so run as not to Inspire
public confidence and Is run In a lax
ami Improper way, It seems to me that
I should bo prosecuted to the limit of
Congress nnd removed from office.
"If they do not believe that they have
charged me with conduct that would
jtntlfy my removal, there is indicated a
very low Idea of morals on their part.
If on tho other hand they mak their
recommendation that the proceeding be
dropped because they nre unwilling to
give me a chance anywhere to present
my side of the controversy their action
netds no comment."

In reply Chalni.iin Webb on June 2.1
wrote Mr. Marshall that In accordanie
with a resolution Introduced by Mr.
Carlln of the nlb-cotumittec the entire
Judiciary Committee bad decided to give

I dined to accept this Invitation because
I of the failure of the committee to send

"I do not think there would be any
advantage In wasting either our time
or my own appearing before your hon-

Mr. Itegan conferred with both sides last

to four In the afternoon, and by S o'clock

ulsout the garages and threatened em
ployees who returned to work, with the
ressult that most ef them were afraid to
take out the buses.
Hlchard Meade, president of the Fifth

STENOOItAPHEIt Pl?T OUT
Two exciting tilts enlivened the fces
slons of the tienrly expired Thompson
committee yesterday. In one of them
Thomas Unrrett, Jr., of- counsel to tho
Guaranty Trust Company, ono of the
executors of tho Andrew Freedman es
tate, who refused to produce certuln of
the Freedman checks, was threatened
Willi ejection, and 11 stenographer who sat
beside lilm did take that mode nt exit.
In the second set-to August Ilelmont and
Frank Moss, the committee's counsel,
exchanged compliments. Mr. Uelmont
threatened to leave tho hearing. Mr.
Moss challenged him to go ahead, but
Mr. Uelmont reserved tho privilege nnd
t-at through his examination.
Thu committee had obtained a sum
mary from Perley Morse, Its accountant,
showing that 123 checkH totalling JDC.iOO
bnd been drawn by Mr. Friedman "to
bearer" and cashed by his secretary,
Jacques S. Cohen, during a period from
1912 to 1914, and that $3S,3;0 had been
drawn In this way between October 30
mid December HI, 1512, Mr. Cohen
testified that these sums were for living
e xpenses, but said that there was nothing
In tho acivunt books which hu kept tu
show how Mr. Freedman used the money.
"Wasn't some of It used to buy securi
ties with olliur persons and for loans to
other people -newspaper men and public
olllclals?" nuked Mr Moss. "No," re
plied the witness, "Not that I know of."
When Frederick T. Sherman, trust
rlerk of the Huaranty Trust Company,
refused on niltlce of counsel to produce
checks desired by the committee. Sena
tor Thompson turned upon Mr, Darn-It
and accused the bank of "taking ad
vantage of child's play." Hu said he
wanted the Huaranty Trust Company "to
stand clear beforo the people of New
York." Mr. Harrett retomd by saying
hotly that it did "stand clear." Mr. Mok-j
charged that l'crley Morse had been de
nied access to all the checks and papers
he sought nnd the row- followed.
Tlie late Mr. Freedman nlso was the
subject of a part of Mr. llelmont's ex
amination Mr. Ilelmont said be had
bought tlie New York and tjueensboro
Hallway for the Interborough. but had
not made a cent of profit for himself
In the transaction. As to the late Mayor
Haynor and Comptroller Prendergast,
Mr. Ilelmont declared there was no sucli
sltuntlm .as was described by Mr, Moss
In which the directors of the Interbor
ough discussed ways and means to over
come thu opposition of these ottlclaks to
the lnterborough's subway projsjsals
"You take the attitude." said Mr. Ilel
mont. "that some undue Influence was
brought to bear. We were simply trv
Itig to meet the views nf an unreasonable
city and city olllrlals."
"If It wore not mechanically driven
into us that ou are trying to brush
by this Inquiry we would not take tho
attitude wo do," letiirtied Mr. Moss.
When Mr. Moss beg.m asking alout
competiton In the bids for the third
trarklng contract. Mr. Uelmont flared up
and asserted. "1 won't allow' you to
make such Insinuations. You are try
ing to disgrace me "
"No, you iire tring to disgrace your
self. ' said counsel
At this point James I. Qu.ickenbush,
