that Williams was the author of it.
Williams corrected his testimony Fri
day so as to make it appear that Bo

Miss Boland declared that Williams'

when Boland was absent, told her what

with his request and the next day sub

Miss Boland read to the committee

The witness declared that the pro
posal of Mr.' Llavcmeycr had not been
carried out, but that he did purchase
stocks for him.
"You went on purchasing storks In
various companies with the Idea of ulti
mately consolidating them?" asked Mr.
"I don't think we had the Idea 'as early
as that," answered Mr. Morey.
Tho witness told of the later purchase
of the Fort Collins plant of tho Colorado
Sugar Refining company by Mr. Have
meyer, of which Morey subsequently be
Eeets $5.50 Per Ton.
In response to a question. Mr. Morey
described In detail tho organization of
tho Great Western company, the method
of organisation, the method of raising
bect3 and tholr handling.
"How much do you pay for beets?"
"Our present contract calls for a mini
