SENATORS TO OPPOSE HURLEY
Washington, Feb. 1. Further in-,
formation regarding the disqualifica
tion of Edward N. Hurley of Illinois
to act as a member of the federal
trade commission has been laid be
fore the senators who are preparing
to oppose this nomination. According
to Moody's Manual and Poore's
Manual, the financial authorities of
the United States, Mr. Hurley was a
director in the Chicago Great West
ern railway and he was appointed
when the stock of this -company was
in the hands of a voting trust, con
sisting of two men, of whom George
F. Baker of the Morgan firm was one.
This connection is not regarded as
especially fitting him to serve on a
commission to regulate big business.
Hurley is and has been for ten
years president of the Illinois Manu
facturers' association. This associ
ation has had its lobby representa
tives on the ground in Washington
for many years. It was one of the
strongest supporters of the lumber
schedule in the Payne-Aldrich bill,
and there is every indication that it
helped Mr. Hines "put Lorimer over."
Mr. Hurley was present in Washing
ton in company with Mr. Hines on
both these occasions..
