JUSTICE U. GOULD
Insurance Investigators to Hold
Executive Session to Consid
er Transcript of Records.
Following the testimony of Congress
man Robert L. Henry, of the Rules
Committee, and Judge Ashley M. Gould,
of the District 'SuDreme Court, the in
surance investigation by the Houso Dis
trict Committee Is again in an en
tangled state today, and an executive
seston of the Investigators will be held
tomorrow to determine wnat shall be
expunged from the transcript of the
Saturday hearings. """
The latest complication Is the result of
efforts by judge Gould to run down un
substantiated reports that ho received
money for tho use of his name as an
officer In the First' National and Com
mercial fire Insurance'companles; the
testimony of Congresman Henry that
Mr. Redfleld, a member of the investi
gating committee, had made such a
statement." and the demand of Mr. Red-,
field that he leave his scat as Investi
gator and take the witness stand him
self. The committee voted late yesterday
that Congressman Redfleld could not
take the stand; that he was an Investi
gator and ought not to be investigated.
Tho commltteo practically decided that
tho entire record, so far as it relates to
the report concerning Judge Gould, In
cluding tho Jurist's- questioning of Mr.
Redfleld and the testimony of Mr. Henry,
shall 'go out ' - .
Wants It Expunged.
Congressman. Prouty moied that
everything after the direct examination
of Judge Gould shall be stricken from
the record i and it was finally decided
that the stenographers shall present a
transcript at an executive session to
morrow. At the. morning session Judge Gould
had Indignantly refuted the report that
he received any conpesatlo for the use
of his name and said he wanted to learn
the author of the report
Congressmen Prouty and Berger aaid
the entire matter should be eliminated.
Chairman Johnson took an opposite
view, but finally travn In to his col-
. leagues. Mr. Redfleld, naturally, did
not vote on the question.
The hearing took an unusual turn
yesterday afternoon when Chairman
Henry of the Rules Committee, was
called. He testified that at- a confer
ence In Speaker Clark's office regard
ing the' resolution for the insurance
investigation Congressman Redfleld
had urged the inquiry, saying that
companies do things they should not
do and that the names of some of the
judges in Washington courts were
"He said 'that they were "paying one
of these Judges $5,000 a year for the
use of his name."
t'Which Judge?" asked Attorney
"Judge Gould," said Mr. Henry.
Place don Grill.
Congressman Henry was then sub
jected to a vigorous cross-examlnaion
by Mr. Redfleld. The latter wanted to
know If he had not qualified' that state
ment by saying that "It was reported."
or "we are told" that this Is a fact con
cerning Judge Gould., Mr. Henry per
sisted that his memory was to the effect
that Mr. Redfleld had made the flat
statement, and the committee immedi
ately became Involved In a controversy
regarding expunging all this matter
from the record.
At the outset of his testimony yes
terday. Judge Gould denied that he re
ceived any money for the use of his
name; demanded that the origin of the
report be run down, and testified that
his connection with the companies was
a purely legitimate business one.
The insurance investigating commit
tee will hold no hearing tomorrow, as
it Is District day in the" House. Chair
man Johnson announced he would be
on the Houso floor looking after Dis
trict bills on the calendar, but he sug
gested an executive meeting of the com
mittee which will proceed to ao iurxncr
expunging from the record.
