Controller Hartley's non -insertion of

Mr. Grttenbcrg add yesterday, was
worthy 'of an Investigation by the Dis
trict Attorney's office. In discussing
the matter further today, Mic Itcscarch
Bureau head said :
"It goes without saying that the
Bureau of Municipal Research is not
now and never hns been interested in
personalities. It would be extremely
rejrettablc if a highly important pub
lic problem was to be lost sight of in
1 maze of charges and counter-rlinrges.
"Tbc fact of the matter is that the
Bureau of Municipal Hescnrch is In
terested iu presenting fncts only on
flfhlch the citizens of I'hllndelphia may
base their conclusions. It Is for that
rnion that the facts relating to the
$5,000,000 bond issue were presented.
"It Is significant, of course, that
there has been no attempt made cither
to' refute the facts so presented or to
testify the policy of ignoring the or
llmry buMncss practice of providing
for a cnllnblo loan.
"It Is important that this problem
hould bo Ftudicil for the reason that
lie city's financial welfare is closely
elated to it. How can there be, cspc-

money was to grease through (jouii-
cil an ordinnnce permitting the con-

When the chnrges and rumors were
sweeping this city. Mr. Schmidt bad

Mayor Moore todnv forcefully dis
claimed all knowledge nf so-called

tin controversy over tho unmitig of the
I'hlllls Whcatley playground.
Mr. Ilnll staled yesterdav thnt one
letter received bv ills daughter referred
to him ns "Crook Ilnll." This drew a
. comment from t lie Mayor

"On the question presented thc-e men
stood on the side of decency and moral
Itj. As to the fuimlnntlons and per
sonal attacks of an irate Councilman
on the other side, the Mayor expressed
a deep sense of sorrow and regret.
"That n member who proclaims him
self a 'business man,' ns well as a leg
islator, should lead the attack, how
ever, may not pass unnoticed, becm.se
It is always important in n civie con

the statement of the gentleman whose
name 1 nave not publicly mentioned
since his wounded feelincs induced him
to bring a $."0,000 libel suit against the
Mayor is significant.
