Gallup, N. M., Sept, 28. The talk of

HUGHES-HE HAS FRENZIED IN
SURANCE FINANCIERS ON THE HIP
A CHARACTER SKETCH OF THE
MAN WHO IS MAKING THE Mc
CALLS AND PERKINSES TELL
ALL ABOUT WHAT THEY HAVE
BEEN DOING WITH THE MONEY
OF POLICY HOLDERS.
New York, Sept. 28. Charles Ev
ans Hughes, lawyer, champion inquis
itor for the legislative committee,
which Is investigating the life Insur
ance companies, Is the most talked-of
man in New York this week.
In the aldermanic chamber of the
city hall a thousand men have crowd
ed in on days when he lias conducted
this inquisition. There is no mistak
ing the look on their faces. They all
look at Hughes. He is the center, and
wherever he moves their eyes follow.
A man of average height and build
as New York well-groomed lawyers go,
"ne would not be picked out on the
street. But .this aldermanic chamber,
with Its somber light and the tremen
dous play going on. Is the Ideal setting
for Hughes. He seems B feet, eight
inches, straight, thin and bony. Wear
ing a beard and mustache which con
ceal his lips but not his strong, white
teeth. Many think of the Roosevelt
teeth. When he speaks the crowd looks
at his teeth. They look away to his
deep-set. blue eyes, to his long, sharp,
inquisitorial nose a Greek nose, with
out the wide, delicate, sensitive nos
trils; to his high forehead a splen
did forehead, though not broad like
Daniel Webster's; and then they go
back and stare at his teeth.
All the while they 'hear his pleas
ing, wonderfully distinctive voice. It
is a tenor ;obusto voice, and no mouth
was ever better adapted to enunciate
Fnglish: the sibilants come grimly
from between the teeth; he does not
drop his R's. nor does he fall Into any
of the "untidy" habits of speech that
Henry James deplores.
Every movement of lips or head or
hands or holy speaks the power, the
utter confidence of the man in hlm
seir. They stare at him all day. He
fascinates them. They admit, after
the first moment, that Hughes Is the
master of this Immense situation, that
he knows exactly what he wants, and
he will get it out of McCall and Mo-
Curdy and Perkins and the rest of
them, If he has to drag it out with
He moves around continuously, yet
never does one think him nervous.
He Is the physical type of nervous
man, but hla manner is the antithesis
LIFE INSURANCE PROBING
STILL GOES VERY GAILY ON
Vice-President Perkins Does Not Want to Produce
Books of Morgan & Co. but Attorney
Hughes Requires Them.
New York, Sept. 28. George W.
Perkins, vice president of the New
York Life Insurance company, and a
member of the firm of J. P. Morgan &
Co., created a stir before the legisla
tive investigating committee today,
when he obejeted to the use of cer
tain books of the J. P. Morgan com
pany to explain Bome of that firm's
dealings with the New York Life com
pany. He said that he would furnish
copies of entries referring to the
transactions In question, but that he
preferred not to bring the books into
court. Mr. Hughes, counsel to the
committee, for the first time during
the investigation, showed sighs of
anger, and said, loudly: "I shall have
to require these books to be pio
dueed." "All right," replied Perkins.
GREAVES AND WINTHROP
FOLLOW YESTERDAY'S LINE.
New York, Sept. 28. Perry Greaves,
a clerk in the employ of the Equitable
Life Assurance society, gave details
before the legislative committee to
day of the payment of checks to Geo.
11. Squire on a trustee account.
Squire formoily was a member of the
Equitable finance committee, and at
one time was connected with tho Mer
cantile Trust company, which shared
in the syndicate operation.
Harry Rogers Winthrop, financial
recalled. Ho said that the Squire
trustee account loan is carried as a
loan for the Equitable Trust company,
tn the name of M. L. liailey, trustee.
Winthrop said that the Equitable
Trust company holds the Equitable
Life Assurance society responsible for
,.nf i la rrt,.,l n
the loan and that the account will bo
taken up In the name of the Equita
ble Life Assurance society. The total
sum borrowed on account of the nav
igation syndicate was $25,000, and on
this $7,ruu has been paid.

of fhe nervous man. They have never
seen such a cool lawyer in Now York.
There are great bundles of big bal
ance sheets covered with figure that
look like an inextricable mass to the
committee and probably to many ex
perts in the crowd. Hughes shoots a
glance at the pile, picks one 6neet as
the musician llerrman used to pick a
card from a deck of playing cards. He
seems never to be looking for any
thing. He goes at it intuitively. He
longed to the Equitable Ufe Assur
ance society. Wlnthrop also said that
a careful search so far had failed to
disclose checks for 123,919, $21,900 and
172,795, profits In the various syndi
cate deals, which had been recorded
in the books of the Equitable society
but expert accountants are still search
