SWEEPING PROBE OF LOBBIES
WILL BE MADE
Washington, D. C, July 5. The
mostj sweeping investigation in the
history of the House of Representa
tives t will be made into the charge,
that 'lobbies, especially that of the
National Association of Manufactur
ers, improperly influenced legislation
and made and unmade legislators as
the N. A. M. pleased. . -
This became sure today when the
House Rules Committee unanimously
reported an inquiry resolution, creat
ing a committee of seven with unlim
ited power, an unlimited expense ac
count, authority to employ outside
counsel and to get to the bottom of
all the charges recently made.
The investigation is to be entirely
independent of the Senate lobby in
quiry now in progress.
The Overman Senate Committee
today took up the papers in the case
of Congressman Gardner of New Jersey.
These charges are contained in a
letter written by Col. Mulhall, the
confessed lobbyist and strikebreaker,
to John Kirby, Jr., then president of
the N. A. M.
The charges are:
That Gardner for a time strenu
ously fought for the adoption by the
House of his eight-hour bill limiting
the day's work of government em
ployes and all work for the govern
ment by contract to eight hours.
But that Gardner, through the per
suasions of the N. A. M. lobby, was
induced to pigeonhole the eight-hour,
bill for two years.
And that he only reported the bill
when Congressmen Hughes of New
Jersey and Rainey- of Illinois openly
threatened to denounce him on the
floor of the House.
