THE WASHINGTON TIMES, WEDNESDAY, EEBRUARY 5,' 1913.
CHILTON DENIES HE
PURCHASED HIS WAY
TO SEAT IN SENATE
West Virginian, on Floor, De
fends Himself and Colleague
Declaring that the election of no mem
ber ot the Senate was more free from
blot than his own. Senator Cr.con of
West Virginia today roBe to a question
of personal privilege In the Senate and
defended himself agalns. the charges
that his election was obtained througa
bribery and corruption.
He said he would be satisfied with
the decision of the Committee of
Privileges and Elections, and with that
of the Senate on the question whether
an investigation should be ordered.
At his request, the cleric read the
statement In replv to the Glasscock
charges which war put Into the hands
of the Committee on Privileges and
Elections yesterday. This statement
was signed by Senators Chilton and
Statement Is Reply.
The statement is a detailed reply to
the charges that the elections of the
two "West Virginia Senators were ob
tained by corruption and bribery. The
roost important feature of the state
ment is the letter of L. J. Shock, a
member of the legislature, to Senator
"Watson. In this. Shock admits his al
leged confession that in attempt was
made to bribe, him was a "play" to
hurt Watson and Chilton and In the in
terest of John T. McGraw.
fihock says further that so far as he
knows the elections of Watson and Chil
ton were honest and fair.
Senator Chilton, in remarks prefatory
I to the reading of the statement, said
the question of the honesty of his elec
tion had not been raised in the legis
lature. Charges Are Denied.
One of the' charges met in the state
ment Is that the elections were brought
about by the railroads and the Stand
ard Oil Company. In this connection
and as to other charges, the statement
"In the first place the opponent of
Senator Watson was then, and Is now,
the general counsel in West Virginia of
the Norfolk and Western railroad,
which was then, and is now. owned and
controlled by the Pennsylvania, railroad,
while Mr. McGraw, the opponent of
Senator Chilton, is the owner of the
West Virginia Midland railroad, which
connects with the Baltimore and Ohio
railroad, and the attorney of Mr. Mc
Graw railroad, a member of the State
Senate at that time, is the same gentle
man who prepared the statement of one
3. L. Shack.
"More than this, Mr. Hubbard, from
whose speech the memorial makes a
garbled quotation, was then and is now
on attorney for one of the Pennsyl
vania railroad lines in West Virglnla.
"The falsity of the charge that we
were supported and elected by the
Standard Oil Company will appear to
the committee when they are told that
this same Senator Bland from whose
tstatement at the Joint session the me
morial quotes so elaborately, was then,
and Is now, the attorney of the Hope
Natural Gas Company, a subsidiary of
the Standard Oil Company.
"This statement makes It plain that
we were opposed rather than supported
by these special Interests."
CUE HIS BUSINESS
H. K. Fulton Decides He Cannot
Make Expenses Under New
When George Wech, pawn inspector
of the District, opened his mall today
he found this written across the top of i
one of the report sheets:
"Last report of H. K. Fulton."
The signing of the loan shark bill yes
terday sounded the death knell to Uv
pawnbroking business of Washington,
xnd while Mr, Fulton was the first to
refuse any more pledge, it Is under
stood the others will begin winding up !
rneir Dusinesses at tne expiration of the
thirty days of grace allowed by the bill.
It will be necessary for the pawnbrokers
to remain open at least a year or make
some arrangements whereby pledges can
be redeemed within twelve months after
the last loans were made.
Fulton's pawnshop, at 314 Ninth street.
Is regarded as the most prominent in
the city, ami the loans made by tin
firm were mostly large sums. Mr Ful
ton and the other pawnbrokers contend
dial they cannot do business at I per
cent a month, asserting that they would
lose money on such a basis.
It is understood that one pawnshop,
which has heretofore made loans in
large sums on the basis of 1 per cent
a. month, will continue to do business, i

WASHINGTON AND NEW
Deal With Washington, Balti
more and Annapolis Railroad
Expected to Close Today.
If a deal that has been In course of
negotiation for six months and is being
threshed out to a conclusion by the exe
cutive committee of the Washington,
Baltimore and Annapolis Electric Rail
road Company in Baltimore today Is
concluded, as expected, the Potomac
Electric Power Company of Washington
will have another city as a customer
for its light and power current. The
deal contemplates the closing down of
the electric light plant of the Annapolis
Gas and Electric Company and the sup
ply of electric current to the people of
the capital of Maryland by the Potomac
Electric Power Company, through the
medium of the lines of the Washington,
Baltimore and Annapolis Electric Rail
road. E. S. Marlow, general manager of the
Potomac Electric Power Company, said
today that the plan had been in con
templation for the past six months, and
It was learned from Baltimore that tne
executive committee of the railroad
company, consisting of George T. Bis
hop, president ;Frank H. Glnn, vice
president and general counsel, both of
Cleveland. Ohio: George A. Craig, of
Toledo, Ohio, treasurer, and James J.
Doyle, general manager, are now In ses
sion considering tne plan.
The railroad company has had an op
tion upon the plant of the Annapoli3
corjpany since January 23. and con
templates taking over the stock of the
company at around 1100,000. and the as
sumption of $190,000 outstanding 5 and
6 per cent bonds. The railroad com
pany has been purchasing the power
for Its line to Baltimore and Annapolis
ever since the opening of the road. The
plan is, if the option be exercised, to
discontinue the small plant In Annap
olis and establish a sub-station, for
the conversion of the high voltage cur
rent frota the Potomac company for
use by Annapolis consumers. This
would amount to wholesaling of elec
tric current to the railroad company
and retailing ir, "stepped down," to
the people of the Mary.and capital city,
giving the Potomac company another
Important customer. Since last fall the
company has been supplying current to
the lines flf the Washington-Virginia
Railway Company, that company dis
continuing its power plant across the

HP FEW ADVANCE
Dullness and Heaviness Order of
the Day Union Weak, While
Southern Pacific Holds.
NEW YORK, Feb. 5. The irregularity
of the New York stock list yesterday
save way to a decided downward trend
today. Union went off a 'whole point
on the report that It would sell its
Southern Pacific stock for cash to buy
Central Pacific. Southern Pacific gained
a point It is explained, however, that
although Southern Pacific would gain a
great amount of cash by the deal, the
road would lose one of its strongest
sections. Tne tiulzer bills provisions
for the regulation of the New York
Stock Exchange became public soon
after noon. The question of incorpora
tion Is left open. Copper stocks were
especially heavy, all going down over a
point AmeVlcan Tobacco lost 2M points
and other tobacco stocks declined, with
the exception of Liggett & Myers. Corn
Products common made a fractional
advance, while the preferred lost 2
Standard OH stocks were a feature
attain. Standard toil of Kentucky sold
at 600. a rise of 65 points over nlghC-
xne stanaara un company or cauror
nia declared a dividend of S2.50 a share,
payable Murch 15. to stockholders' of
record February 20. This Is the same
as the previous dividend paid Decem
The" American Tobacco Company de
clared a quarterly dividend of 5 per
cent and an extra dividend of 15 per
cent, on the common. The quarterly
ivldend places the stock on a 20 per
cent per annum basis, an increase of
2Vj per cent quarterly.
The regular dividend on American
Smeitinir was declared.
The Subtreaaury gained $459,000 from
the banks yesterday and since Friday
has gained $4,750,000.
St. Joe and Urbanay Ohio, Both
Decline to Grant Places of
Honor to Relics.
The bathtubs of the battleship .Maine
are not .precisely at a. premium. St..
Joseph, Mo., according1 to reports re
ceived at the Navy Department today,
does not want the. tub- Nor does Ur
bana, Ohio. The Urbane tub now re
poses In a hen house. It ,-wIll be sent to
Findlay, Ohio, which U regarded as a,
better asylum for dependent and unpro
The situation has been complicated
by a multiplication of bathing vessels.
When one was' sent to TJrbana it ap
peared that the Navy Department had
only one memento of this character.
But there is now another tub, an offi
cers' tub, to be disposed 'of. 'It is the
latter that St. Joseph has turned down
so coldly, the city council refusing to
appropriate the money wherewith to
pay the 'freight.
So far Findlay, Ohio, has not refused
this emblem of cleanliness. The Navy
Department Is frankly hoping that It
will keep It. To have one circulating
hathtnh nn Ita hands la sufficient Errfaf
I without adding to it a second Itinerant
' thing of Iron and porcelain wherein to
lave the dust from onescir.
If Findlay, Ohio, stays put there will
be hope of disposing of the second
tub. Of course, the one sent to TJrbana,
now housed In the pleblan hen-coop,
was the official property of Captain
SIgsbee. The other, the one on which
St. Joseph has opened the cold faucet,
was a mere officers bath.
Bathtub troubles mav multiply, as
the one now In the White House. In
stalled four years 'ago, ht several sizes
larger than that required for persons of
ordinary physique, nnd may daunt, with
Its broad expanse and generous depth,
even the courage of a Princeton presi
dent. It has not been determined that
this tub will be removed, however.

Pensioners in Police and Fire
Departments to Receive Only
Portion of Their Money.
Delay on the part of Congress In act
ing on tha bill providing for a police
and firemen's relief fund again has re
sulted In a deficiency In the fund.
The District's servltore who are In
capacitated by reason of illness or
Injury received In the line of duty, and
the; wldowc and orphans of the men
who have" met death while In the
service, will receive Friday for the
month of January.-63 per cent of the
amount due them by the District gov
ernment. The sum owed pensioners
of the Police Department Is 17,611. They
will receive K03J.S3. The pension rolls
of the Fire Department call for a dis
bursement of $3,744.60. The pensioners
will be paid f2.000.4S..
Again, and again the Commissioner
have asxed the attention of Congress to
tho necessity, for legislation placing the
police and firemen's pension fund upon
a, fixed and permanent financial basis.
In addition to 'the amount owed them
for the month of January, the "District
is Indebted to its pensioners in. the sum
Efforts In Vain.
The efforts of the Commissioners, aid

civic organisations have been without

situation "exactly similar to the one two
During tho last fiscal year,, from the
months of January' to May, there was
a deficiency in the payment of police
and firemen's pensions amounting to
$19,436.07. During the fiscal year 1911.
there occurred also a deficiency amount
ing to 115,666.30. It U the opinion of
Alonzo Tweedale, Auditor of the Dis
trict, that unless remedial legislation
la enacted, the, deficiency for this yar
will be greater than tha; of last. ,
'There la" no prospect "Whatever of
the payment of this, deficiency In the

Auditor. "It Is a matter of knowledge

of pensioners," including women and
children "Who are entirely, aepenaeni
