Pujo Inquiry Counsel, Speaking In
Chicago, Request Executive Com
mission to Administer Law as Rem'
edy Cltos Standard Oil Case.
Chicago. Jan. 7. A powetful federal
executive) body to administer the
dherman anti-trust law is tho prime
remedy for the country's financial Ills,
according to the statement of Samuel
Untormyer on Monday at a luncheon of
the Illinois .Manufacturers' association
here Mr Untcrmjer was the counsel
for the l'ujo committee, which recent
ly investigated the "money trust." Tho
HUbJect of hU address was "A Legisla
tive Program "to Restore Business
Freedom and Confidence."
Mr. Untermyer ridiculed tho court
"dissolution" of the Standard Oil
trust as "flagrant and pitiful." with no
restoration of competition anions the
component companies Ho also gave
warning against lodging In tho attor
ney general tho power of negotiating
"consent decrees" like that which has
broken up tho American Telephone
& Telegraph company.
There must bo. howpver, he wild, an
executive authority to assist the
courts and the attorney general In the
practical application of laws to liber
ate business from tho thraldom of II
lgal combinations, and this authority
Mr Untermyer would give to the in
dustrlal commission. Tho speaker
did not recommend any plan for tho
appointment of the commission
Mr. L'ntennyer directed tho atten
tion of the business men who heard
htm to the fact that anti-trust legis
lation Is the next big problem to which
the national administration, must de
mote Its energies Business men, h
said, should co-operate with con
gress In a spirit of patriotism and not
In the attitude of hostile criticism
which characterizes utterances by
banking organizations and Individual
leaders before the passage of the in
come tax and currency measures.
In addition to a law for the Indus
trie commission. Mr Untermyer said
congress should pass bills embodied
In the 22 recommendations of tbo Puo
committee, dealing with banks. Inter
locking directorates, stock exchanges,
clearing houses and the administra
tion of the Sherman act
At ono point, talking about "dum
my" directors, he referred to the
withdrawal of the house of Morgan
from participation in the affairs of 28
corporations and tald it Is "most un
substantial." BRITAIN SHIFTS SIR CARDEN

Kidnaping and Shooting of Charles
Moyer While He Was at Hancock.
Houghton, Mich., Jan. 7. Governor
Ferris has taken hold of tho strike sit
uation in tho copper country. With
h!s-comlng Monday a practical truce
went Into effect and both sides ex
pressed a. willingness to await his find
ings before Initiating now measures
in the industrial warfare.
John II, Densmoro of tho depart
ment of labor announced on Saturday
that his efforts to end the strike, of
copper miners by conciliation had
failed after ho had made a final effort
to bring the warring factions to
gether. He did not licsitato to blame ills
failure upon the uncompromising at
titude of the mine owners, who re
fused to recognize tho Western Fed
eration of Miners as a party to arbi
tration proceedings or other peace
"In a nutshell, the question was
whether the union men should go back
to work with or without discrimina
tion. The companies refused to do
anything but discriminate against
members of the union," said Mr. Dens
more. "It means a struggle to the bitter
end," said O. N. Hilton, chief of coun
sel of the Western Federation of
Miners, who has represented Presi
dent C. II. Moyer hero since the let
ter's deportation. "Tho outcomo Is
due entirely to tho attitude of the
companies. Thoy wanted- everything
and would concede nothing."
The union's last word was an off or
to withdraw tho Western Federation
from the Held, Its place to be taken by
a union affiliated with tho Michigan
Federation of Labor, tho United Mine
Workers, with which tho Western Fed
eration of Miners Is affiliated, or some
similar body. This was rejected ab
solutely by the companies. Word of
tho negotiations was telegraphed to
the secretary of labor by Mr. Dens
more. Ho said that a full roport of
the efforts made, would be made by
him after his return to Washington
Tho Houghton county grand Jurj
was specifically charged by Judge 11.

"If tho Jury believes thero Is reason
able amount of evidence pointing to
ward persons connected with the kid
naping, they aro to bu Investigated
and Indicted," Judge O'llrlcu charged.
Tho grand Jury Is made up of James
Mac.N'aughton's chauffeur, Edgar Bye,
several rnlno superintendents and two
Socialists. The evidence Is being
placed before the grand Jury by
George Nichols, a special prosecutor
appointed by Governor Ferris to con
