were- the. witnesses put on. the stand to
run downjihe course of the rumor. The
entire jnorning session was devoted to
the subject, Mr. Johnson asserting that
the matter affected his good name,
and. that-the rumor- was circulated for
some ulterior end.
The chairman of the Insurance Investi
gating committee was in a determined
mood and was deeply resentful of the
reports which reached him lnl round
At the outset of the hearing Mr. John
son said hethad been informed by the
clerk of the" committee. Rogers Gore,
that Gore had been told by a newspaper
reporter of a. rumor that Mr. Johnson's
brother was a stockholder In one of the
Telegraphs His Brother.
..'.'I have Just, telegraphed by brother to
find out about this thing,' said Mr.
Johnson, angrily, "and I would appre
ciate It if" the companies will have the
stock list examined."
Earl Godwin, representing the Star at
the House, was caled. He testified that
8. T. Early, representing the United
Press, had given him a "Up" that John
son's brother"was a stockholder In one
of the companies, ana suggested that
Godwin look up the matter If he wanted
to use the story. Mr. Godwin said Mr.
Early made no comment on the matter,
and said nothing uncomplimentary
about the chairman of the committee,
contenting himself with repeating a
current rumor. "
Chairman Johnson Immediately Issued
a subpoena for Early, and meanwhile
called U. G. Smith, secretary to Con
gressman Redfield, whose name had
been brought into the controversy.
Mr. Smith appeared promptly, and told
the committee that a friend of his,
Gilbert Clark, had talked of the Insur
ance Investigation Sunday night, and
had aserted that the Insurance compa
nies "had nothing to rear." Smith said
that Gilbert remarked that "they say
even Johnson's brother Is a stock
holder." ' Mr. Redlield's secretary also testified
that Clark had expressed the opinion
that "Rcdfleld seemed to be hi the
employ of Stellw-agen."
Other Subpoenas Issued.
A subpoena was then Issued for Mr.
Clark and when he arrived ho positive
ly denied that portion of the testimony
relating to Mr. Johnson's brother.
"I did say in a Joking way that Con
gressman Redfleld seemed to be in the
employ of Mr. Stellwagen," acknowl
edged Clark, "but Mr. Johnson wasn't
mentioned; neither was his brother."
Startled by this conflict In testimony,
Mr. Johnson asked:
"You didn't say that my brother was
a stockholder In one of these com
panies." "I tell you your name wasn't men

Smith. I Joked with him about Redfleld.

Was Only Intimation.
"What did Clark mean by saying that
my brother owned stock in one of the
insurance companies?" asked Chairman
Johnson with rising anger.
"Nothing except to Intimate that the
Insurance companies were all right and
that even Mr. Johnson's brother had
stock In them," answered Smith.
Mr. Smith said that he had resented
the imputation concerning the manner

This is the first time In the history of
the republic that a Federal judge had
been so convicted. The action of the
