REP. WATSON DENIES CHARGES
MADE BY MULHALL
Washington, Sept. 13- Former
Rep. James 'B. Watson of Indiana" en
tered blanket denial to Mulhall
charges before the House lobby in
Watson denied that he has taken
any interest in the pending tariff bill
and said that the N. A. M. had been
one of 230 organizations which had
employed him to -work for the tariff
commission in 1909.
He also denied that he put men on
committees of the House for the N.
A. M., as charged by Mulhall,
"You don't need- to tell the sun to
shine and you don't need to tell a
canary to sing and you don't need
tq tell Uncle Joe Cannon who to put
on a committee," he observed.
"Sometimes the speaker would ask
me-what I thought about this man or
that without saying why he wanted
to know and I told him without ask
ing why he wanted to know." '
Watson said he " conscientiously
believed with the N. A. M. that cer
tain measures desired by labor were
unwise and that he stood with the
N. A. M. in opposing such legislation.
"I want to say emphatically," he
declared, "I never knew a corrupt
man in the House? I never knew of
a member of Congress being corrupt
ed or of any 'attempt being bade to
corrupt a member of Congress. I
never believed a member of Congress
could be corrupted for money and I
don't believe it now."
