by Majority.
I nless an agreement, of which there
now seems to be no immediate prosptct,
is reached shortlj. there will be two re
ports from tho subcommittee of tho
House District Committee, which has
been investigating ihe operatioM and
affairs of the Commercial and First Na
tional Fire Insurance. Companies and tho
underwriting firm of Tuttle, Wlghtman
S. Dudlej, Ineorporited
Chairman Johnson of the committee,
refuses to sImi the report to which three
members of the committer Representa
tives Redfield of New v. ork Proutj of
Iowa and Berger of Wisconsin have af
fixed their names Chairman Johnson
has prepared several tentative drafts em
bodying his Ideas: of what the report
should rontaln The matter Is not closed
jet and Chairman Johnson mar sign the
majoritv report as It is or maj induce
the other members to make some changes
In conformitj with his Ideas but pros
pects are- not bright and the probability
is that the majoritv report at least will
be made to the Houe not later than Sat
urdav afternoon
The majorltj report nai prepared by
Judge Proutj ind Representative Red
field Jolntlv Johnson It U sHid objects
to It because It voices too pointcdlv Mr
Redfield s Ideas, and the conclusions of
Messrs Johnson and Redfield on manv
points are wide apart To Mr John
sons wij of thinking Mr Redfield
thinks too much along the same lines as
Iocs Col W V Judon i.ngin"er Com
missioner of the District Col Judson
Is not popular with the chairman of the
District Committee
rtnlldlnc alnr Hither
Specificallj. as to several phases
of the probe Mr Johnson does not
gree with his colleagues He does not
favor passing upon the true value of
the bouthern Building, which has been
attacked persistcntlj bj the investi
gators and concerning which reams
nd reams of testimonj was taken or
if the committee Is to place a valua
tion upon the building Mr Johnson
favors a much higher figure than the
other members have agreed upon It
understood the majorltj report
valuea the biiildl-jg ind gruund at
about SI.rTDlMie This is a material
advan e hver the figure at which the
building was carried before the re
flation which taused so much
trouble II is however J2. "00 less
than the reappraisement figure upon
tht strength of which the comi anies
ssigned thcmsclvc in addition to
their surplus
nother phase over ninth there Is a
de difference bttween I halrman
Johnson and the three other ictive
members of his committee involves the
testimonj of Ifred M Best, the New
ork insurance expert who was the
star witness for the prosecution and
whom Chairman Johnson later seemed
to place In much the same categorv as
he did Col Judson Other members of
the committee on the other hand place
the utmost confidence In the Judgment
and fairness of Mr Best and the report
upon which these three members have
agreed reflects to a verv great extent
the opinions of the New v ork expert
Method Vrc Criticised.
Severe criticism of the mtthods em
plojed bv the officers of the insurance
companj in stock selling ind advertls
Ing Is a feature of the report The lit
crature is scathingly arraigned in the
conclusions and ittrntion Is called
the advisabllitj of preventing further
abuses of this nature bj establishing 1
censorship over all promotion literature
of stock selling corporations doing busl
ness in this District
The contricts between Tuttle W ight
man & Dudlev Inc., the underwriting
firm which does all the stock placing
and underwriting for the two eompinles
come in for caustic criticism and the
laxitj of the law which permits the
control of insurance companies bj tin
derwritlng concerns through interlocking
directorates Is the central point in this
line of attack
No specific legislative recommendations
are made in the report because of the
lateness of tho session but the reportt
Indicates the general outline of legisla
tion which the investigation has de
monstrated the need of Judge Proutv
at tho next session will prepare ind

or in an omnibus measure revising the
