"WASHINGTON, July 6 Charges that the president
organized the National Council of Defense, before war was
declared, in ubsohitc'violation'of the law and that he there
by created a secret government in the United States, which '
formulated war legislature, dictated the policies the coun
try was to pursue and befriend big businesses, were made

tee investigating war department expenditures.
Minutes of the council were read to the committee bv
Mr. Grayham, together with a report that the council had
assumed such powers, that Major Goethala of the traffic
division of the war, had defied it. Cabinet members are said
to have protested against its activities and Judge Gray,
president of the United States Steel organization', accused..
it ot operating in flagrant violation of the law.
Mr. Grayham declared that the president created the
secret government by ignoring and reversing the intent of
congress in authorizing the establishment, of a council of
nation defense in August, 1916.
