; Over Inaugural Ball
A Almost Any Time
ItWWIo the controversy continued over
the inaugural ball plans. Secretary of
pi, Interior Fisher startled members of
fete House today when he sent In a let
ter, broadly Ti'nt1"g that the lights In
the Pension building are liable to go
fcut-oi any time unless Congress appro
priates $8,500 for the repair of an elec-tjc-cable
which supplies lights there.
Secretary Fisher does'nt refer direct
ly to- the Egyptian darkness which
jdght descend upon the revelers In the
" tendon, building on inaugural night, but
to plainly tells the House that the feed
pablo la in ouch sape that the Pension
jjalldlng may be thrown In darkness at
rWhat if it happened during the grand
tiarchf asked a worried Democrat to-
In aaklng for the appropriation. Sec
retary Fisher Bays that the present feed
ble, running from the central lighting
plant In the old postofflce building to
the pension building, is overtaxed, and
not equal to the demands upon it. He
-ays the cable runs adjacent to and
under the street car tracks, and the
stronger voltage of the street car line
has put the Pension building In a bad
nay. Electrolysis has resulted, explains
the Secretary of the Interior, and It Is
Imperative that the cable be strengthen
ed and repaired Immediately.
The present cable Is ten years old,
and since its installation a number of
additional lights have been put in the
big Pension building, further taxing the
strength of the feeder wires.
' The somewhat disconcerting report of
the Secretary of the Interior is backed
jm bv the electrician of the department,
irho explains in technical detail Just
why the House should appropriate
6 SO) to bolster up the feed wires which
furnish light for the Pension Building.
.Mr. Fisher -asks that the amount be
tncluded In the urgent deficiency bill and
the Appropriations Committee probably
will take action. It is not believed the
committee will run the risk of having
be entire nation ask:

Indians to Play
In Big Parade
Indians will probably have an Im
pprtant part in tVc inaugural parade.
This subject is being discussed In a
conference between Chairman R. N.
Harper, or the cltc organizations com
mittee, and MaJ. Gen. Leonard Wood,
chief marshal, and Mr. Harper's recom
mendation favors it.
One hundred Indians In war paint
from the North American League of
Indians are anxious to come to Wash
ington and take part In the parade. In
addition to these. Mr. Harper is plan
ning to have other Indians represent
ing the various stages of -education and
civilization. Ore group of agricultural
Indians is pressing for an opportunity
to participate, and a group of Carlisle
Indian school graduates -nlll be glad
to take part.
Mr. Harper can obtain as many In
dians as the Inaugural committee Is
willing to provide mounts for. He has
been deterred from making a decision
concerning this feature, because of
President-elect Wilson, simplicity doc
trine for Inaugural ceremonies, but now
that the committee has agreed that n
features of other inaugurations need be
omitted. Mr. Harper feels that the In
dians should be Invited to attend.
Indians first participated in the inau
gural parade at the time of President
McKinley's induction Into office.
J. M. Brereton, assistant director
of the Stonewall Band, of Staunton.
Va., has announced that the well
known organization from the birth
place of Governor Wilson will. In all
probability, be on hand when he Is
inaugurated President of the United
Slates. It is more than probable that
the banu will have its headquarters
with the cadets of the Virginia Mili
tary Institute in the Old Masonic
Temple In F street. The Stonewall
band furnished the music during
Governor Wilson's stay in Staunton
a week ago.
Chairman George E. Hamilton has
called a meeting of his legislative com
mittee for 4 o'clock this afternoon to
consider draf's of a bill for the use of
the Pension Building for the Inaugural
ball, and for the use of the school
buildings for militia quarters.
The public safety committee is con
sidering the advisability of sending out
policemen In automobiles In the outly
ing districts during Inauguration week,
bo as to promote the security of these
sections which are generally the prey
of crooks at such a time.
A meeting of the local transportation
committee will be held at 4 o'clock to
morrow afternoon to formulate plans for
nanaung me crowas to best advantage.

Mr. Itedlleld Interposed, asking: "Why
do you object to our questioning upon
these matters if you are going to do
all that?" .
"I object to it on this ground, Mr.
Rednela." answercu Douglas.
"If S ou are going Into each and every
side issue and collateral matters that
could be anticipated here, this commit
tee could be In session for twelve sears,
unless you intend to drag into the af
fairs of the Investigation the private
affairs of every other corporation and
every lndivdual and not allow them any
opportunity to defend themselves."
"The purpose of the inquiry," said
Redfield, "Is to Investigate the history
of some of their asosUuteb. representa
tives and agents, leading up to the
transaction of the increase in value of
the Southern Building within a few days
after Us purchase for something over
Aim of Inquiry.
Mr. Douglas replied: "That Is the
crux of this whole matter, the scope of
this inquiry, as is stated by Mr. Red
field, but with all due respect to him,
I submit that he h?s misinterpreted, to
gether with the 'associates, representa
tives, ard agents." That is, the "asso
ciates, representatives, and agents' of
the me insurance companies, and Tuttle.

I now throw down the challenge In no
sense are the feouthern Building Corpo
ration and the Richmond Realty Corpo
ration, who have bought some of these
bonds, or their agents,""representatlves
or associates, now or at any time In the
past, and to go In to the private af
fairs of corporations buying those se
curities, now holding and owing thoso
securities. Is to lay bare upon this table
the private affairs of corporations, and
I submit with all deference to this
committee is beyond Its limits and be
yond its scope, and beyond its right.
"Any question that can be asked that
will throw light upon the question,
either of the cost of the land or cost
of the building or the present value
of them, taken singly or collectively,
is well within the limits of this In
quiry, and perfectly germane to the
subject, but beyond that It is drag
ging into the affairs of this investiga
tion the private affairs of other peo
ple, and Ithlnk their rights ought to
be respected, and will be resepected,
by this committee."
Mr. Redfield replied: "Mr. Douglas,
you appear as one of the officers of
the souwern uunaing i;orporauon. in
what is alleged to be Its original char
ter. Mr. Carusl Is alleged to have been
one of the special committee acting as
counsel of the Commercial Fire In
surance Company In the purchase of
this building from the Southern Build
ing Corporation, of which you were a
PlanVTo Bare Details.
"This committee desires to show in
detail the whole transaction in which
you and Mr. carusl were associated,
you, on behalf of the Commercial Fire
Insurance company now, he as on thlr
behalf now, he In the purchase of this
building from the corporation of which
you were a director then, and you.
yourself, were a atrecior in anomer
corporation which purchased the build
ing from parties with whom It is im
portant to know who was associated.
We intend to know, or ought to know,
in my Judgment, the whole transaction,
from Its beginning up, who are the
parties interested, what profits have
been made, whether certain stockhold
ers were forced to sell at 25 cents on the
dollar, whether others by knowing the In
side tracks, sold for 60 cents on the dol
lar, whether those securing that were
not themselves in a measure defrauded.
These things may not be true, we hope
they are not, but we ought to know
them all, and If I can do It, I am going
to find It out."
Retort of Douglas.
Attorney Douglas retarded: "Now,
Mr. Chairman, I make this statement
here now, that the suggestion of Mr.
Redfield, unless it Is backed up by the
facts In this case. Is, to say the least,
an Improvident statement. This com
mittee is not sitting as a court of equity
and a court of conscience, to try quar
rels that may grow out of the con
scientious differences of opinion or any
differences of opinion between the stock
holders of the Southern Building Cor
poration and tlie corporation Itself.
"If we start an Inquiry of that sort,
there will absolutely be no limit to this.
I do wonder for one moment If any
body here will sit here quietly and
without protest and hear any suggestion
made ob besmirching anybody unless
they ask leave of this committee to
have the same leeway and the same
unlimited right to eb heard in defense
of the charge against them, or the sug
gestion made against them.
"This committee has nothing what
ever to do, I submit, with whether or
not one stockholder sold at 25 cents
and is satisfied, another one at 50 cents
and is satisfied."
Cost of Big Building.
Baker's preliminary statement re
garding the Southern Building Corpo
ration, which brought on the tltlt be
tween Attorney Douglas and members
of the committee, traced the history
of the building from the time of the
purchase of the St. Matthew's Church
property to the last meeting of the di
rectors. Baker said he thought the ground cost
th( corporation about J17.M a foot, or
$110,000 for the plot. He did not recall
who held the option Continuing, he

accurate, but It was not more than $10.

Pact With Builders.
"The bonds were sold well, before I
get to that, there was a clause In the
contract with the Thompson-Sterrett
people, who were the builders that pro
vided for a cancellation of the second
mortgage bonds, provided the building
did not exceed a certain cost. I do not
remember now what that was."
"Could jou provide the committee with
a copy of that 'contract," asked John
son. "No. sir. I haven't It." answered Bak
er, "the records are all with the South
ern Building Corporation papers, wher
ever they are. I have no papers. They
were all left with them
"Those bonds were put in escrow
into the United States Trust Company.
My recollection Is indlstinc: as to the
exact amount, but something HUi
$123,000 of those bonds were put In

of course, I have not had the figures
before me in eight or ten months
but when the building was finished,
at the last meeting of tlie board that
X attended, which was some time In
1912, before the annual election, as I
think probably the records will show.
It was In April. I am not sure as to
that date. It was before the annual
election of last year.
Only Nominal Treasurer.
"Whilst I was nominally treasurer.
I had not been acting as such since
the January preceding, therefore I took
occasion to look over the recoru at
that time to see what the exact con
dition was. I do not know whether the
suit which was filed by Thompson &
Sterrett against the corporation had
been filed at that time or not, but it
was something like $20,000 Involved in
that. My recollection is that If the
Thompson-Sterrett people established
their claim that It would leave approx
imately $90,000 of these bonds to be
canceled of the second mortgage bonds.
"That would have brought the out
standing indebtedness down to $1,310.
to which you add the cash that vyaa
derived from the stock and sold, which
would make It about $L0.000, and to
that amount you add $10,000 approxi
mately, brought from the sale of the
stock, would make It $1,450,000.
"That Is my recollection as to the In
debtedness when my connection was
severed with It.
"The corporation received In cash
from the proceeds of those bonds and
the sale of the stock $1,275,000.
"At the annual election of the South
ern Building Corporation last year, the
"Let me go back a moment. At the
meeting of the board that I attended,
my recollection Is It was stated there
that with the exception of this contro
versy with the Thompson-Sterrett Com
pany, the conditions of the company
were in a satisfactory shape, but they
had fairly enough money to meet their
maturing interest obligations, which
-was something like $25,000 or $30,000, is
my recollection, and I have not attend
ed to the matter since, and that is all I
know about It, as to my recollection. I
mean, as to the loans and Indebtedness.
It Is a matter of record, the builders
took about $75,000 of bonds, the builders
and architects, but the Southern Build
ing Corporation received in cash for Its
Interest a first lien on the bonds of ap
Organizers Got Stock.
"How did you buy your stock?"
asked Congressman Redfield, resum-.
lng the direct examination.
"I would prefer to Introduce the rec
ords of the corporation," said Baker,
"but until I get that I will testify from
recollection, which Is not very good.
My recollection is that we started out
as a stock corporation, and after the
formation It had to be changed, and
the stock was made subject to the
first mortgage bonds. Stock to the
amount of $100,000 was voted to the
gentlemen who organized the corpo
ration and who had done the work."
"And who were those gentlemen?"
"Mr. R. H. McNeil, Mr. A. E. L.
Leckie. Mr. C. A. Douglas, myself, and
Mr. Meek," responded the witness.
Mr. Baker said the total bonds and
issue of stock amounted to $2,000,
000, divided as follows:
First trust, $800,000: second mort
gage bonds. $375,000; third mortgage
bondfc. $325,000; preferred stock. $300,
000, and common stock. $200,000.
The witness referred to thf fact
that litigation Is now in progress
between the corporation and the
builders of the Southern building. "If
the Thompson-Sterrett people estab
lish their contention."' he. said, "It
would leavp about $90,000 mortgage
indebtedness to be canceled, which
would bring the mortgage Indebted
ness down to $1,410,000."
G. A Lyon, Jr., editorial writer on an
afternoon paper, was on the stand be
fore the appearance of Mr. Baker. He
testified regarding the receipt at his
office of the statement Issued by the
commissions regarding tho proposed In

paper as to how to treat It.
