House Probe Committee At
tributes Money Trust
Gymnastics to Him.
Washington, D. C Dec 10. "The
Morgan influence" in New York bank
ing formed the basis for most of the
daj's session of the house money trust
investigating committee.
Walter E. Frew, a banker and presi
dent of the New York clearing house
association, was under a fire of ques
tions by Samuel Untermyer. the com
mittee's attorney, who sought In vain
to get Mr. Frew to admit that the
rbenomenal rise of the Bankers' Trust
. .r-pany deposits from $8,000,000 In
"3 to 168.000,000 at the present time
was due to the influence of J. P.
"'.rgan & Co.
Mr Frew did not know just what
was meant by a "Morgan Institution."
Hp admitted, however, that the three
men who hold a voting trust that
rules the Bankers' Trust company
were "associated with Mr. Morgan."
Mr. Untermyer endeavored to bring
nut that the merger of the Mercantile
Trust company -which was controled by
'." Equitable Life Assurance com-
jny, with the Bankers' company
vl which added materially to
tie deposits, of the latter, was
brought about through the "Morgan
irflience" Mr. Frew, although a di
r otor of the Bankers' company, said
be knew nothing of the negotiations,
which were cordueted entirely by the
' rustees
Clearing House- Tactics
Mr Untermyer took up the attitude
of the New York clearing house com-
ittee toward the banks that went to
ihe wall during the 1907 panic.
Mr. Frew sai the Mechanics' and
"radars' bank was advanced 12.100.000

"How much does your bank earn?"
asited Mr. Unterroyer.
" Uiout 21 or 23 percent on Its capi
talization," answered Mr. Wardrop.
"Is not that a pretty fair return?"
Ves. that's pretty good."
But with a rate of exchange It

Yes. it would be better."
Take Control Away From Basic
Mr Untermyer placed In the record
the rules of the clearing house associ

by its members for service performed

McManigal DeclaredDef end
ant Pointed Out Nonunion
"Jobs" to Be Blown Up.
Indianapolis, Ind., Dec. 10. Accused
as an active promoter of explosions
in eastern cities, Michael J. Young, of
Boston, testified la his own behalf at
the "dynamite conspiracy" trial today
that he. never participated in the Mc
Namara "plots.
Young, a member of the iron worK
ers" executive board, is charged with
approving the appropriation of $1000
a month to John J. McNamara for
dynamiting purposes. He also was di
rectly named by Ortie E. McManigal
as personally having pointed out non
union jobs to be blown up.
McManigal said when he caused an
.explosion in a. new opera house In
construction at Boston In March 190U,
Young met him and showed him where
to put the explosive. On. another trip
east, McManigal said Young met him
in Springfield, Mass., in April, 1911
and arranged for the dynamiter to
Wow up the tower of the Springfield
municipal building.
Numerous letters between Young
and McNamara were produced for ex
amination by Young.
Says He Never Saw Dynamite.
"Did you ever point out to Mc
Manigal a spot in the opera house in
Boston and say "put a shot in there
and blow It to helir " asked attorneys
for the defence.
"I did not," answered Young. "I
never talked to anyone about blowing
up any place and never saw dynamite
in my life."
Shown canceled checks payable to
McNamara and marked "by order of
the executive board," which the gov
ernment charges enabled McNamara to
carry on a "dynamiting campaign" on
non-union jobs .extending from Boston
to Los Angeles, Young said he did
not learn McNamara received that
money until after the latters arrest.
Accused Voted for McNomara.
For voting for John J. McNamara's
.ulaAHnii oa swrtftrv nt the Mil-
I waukee convention of the International
Association of .Bridge ana structural
Iroh Workers in September, 1911, five
months after McNamara was arrested
for dynamiting, Edward E. Phillips, of
Syracuse, N. Y-. was subjected to se
vere cross examination.
Phillips as secretary of the Syracuse
local union told of many letters he
wrote to McNamara, but denied they
pertained to proposed explosions.

Charges against Phillips were Dasea
on letters In which he referred to a
job at Bremerton. N. Y as follows:
"It is a fine place to make an ever
lasting piece of work and set them
thinking. It can be done very easy,
and I am going to look for something
doing when the right time comes. The
barge canal work looks all to the bad
The witness said he was trying to
Induce McNamara to employ two or
three men to ascertain whether the
eight hour law was being violated.
Letters Were Too Plain.
In another letter, he said: "Some
of the brothers are getting restless
and are anxious to see something hap
pen." In reply McNamara wrote:
"I am afraid you speak a little too
plainly in your letters. I am not
criticising you, but no one knows who
reads my letters, and this Is Just to
give you a pointer. Our people should
be careful what they puSpon papox
when writing to headquarters."
Numerous dashes in the letters Phil
lips said had no particular significance.
In reference to all his correspond
ence, Phillips disavowed any purpose
to use violence on nonunion work and
added he never had heard of a "dyna
miting campaign" on nonunion work
throughout the country until McNa
mara's arrest.
Asked why he did not report to the
state authorities any violations of the
eight hour law, the witness said It was
necessary to employ men who would
work on the job and make affidavits.

(By AVlnflcId Jones.)
Washington, D. C, Dec 10. With
Democratic control of the senate after
March i, next, hanging only by a
slender thread, there are reports
around the capitol of a clash between
Democratic factions over the control
of Important committees of the upper
Some of the newer Democrats in
the senate are thirsty for some of
the power that will be taken over by
the Democrats from the Republicans
after March 4, and there is talk of a
breaking away, at least to some ex
tent, from the long established rule
of seniority in the appointment of
committee chairmanships and in the
filling of vacant places on the bis
So small will be thi margin of Dem
ocratic control that a small group
of Democrats might remain away from
the senate or take some other method
of revolt and leave the remaining
Democrats powerless to reorganize the
senate as they might wish. The newer
Democrats who clamor for important
committee assignments, and who are
among the most aggressive members
of the upper house, are holding this
position as a trump card with which
to turn many tricks.
Precedent May Be Smaohed.
There are senators Bacon, Martin,
and Tillman, who entered the senate
on the- same day in 1895 and who are
the oldest Democrats In point of
service. Senator Tillman is the rank
ing Democrat on eight committees,
and that means, under the rule of
seniority, he can have hi3 choice of
eight chairmanships and still hold the
second place on the other seven.
Among these eight are the committees
on appropriations. Interstate com
merce and naval affairs. Senator Ba
con is the ranking Democrat on five
committees, including foreign rela
tions, judiciary and rules. Senator
Martin is chairman of the Democratic
caucus and ranking Democratic on
four committees, including commerce.
Under the plan proposed by some
of the newer senators, these older
senators would be allowed to make
their choice of a chairmanship to
which their reniorify entitles them
and then yield their second place posi
tions to newer senators.

It is possible for governor Wilson to
revoke the order. Just before the close

issued' an order placing a large num

ice President Harrison succeeded him
and amended the order. As a result
many Republicans obtained offices
from which, under the Cleveland or
der, they would have been barred.
After his own partisans were taken
care of, president Harrison issued new
drders extending the civil service The
new order duplicated the one he had
revoked. He lifted the lid long enough
to let Republicans in office and shut
It down again promptly in order to
bar Democrats.

to the fact that the laurel grows from
New Brunswick to Florida, but only as
far west as Ohio and Tennessee.
