WASHINGTON. .Inn. 10. -Thut the
piosent concentration of monev and
cicdlt "has gone far enough;" that "in
had hands" it would have a bad effect
upon the nutlon; that the "safety of tho
situation Hps In the personnel of the men
In control." and that present conditions
arc "not entirely comfortable for tho
country." were a few of the statements
made todny by George F. Raker, master
flnnncler, as the climax of two days' ex
amination before the house money trust
committee. Mr. Halter declared, how
ever, that "bad hands" could not retain
the control.
These statements coming at the end of
a day of routine examination during:
which Mr. Baker reviewed in derail the
operations of himself, his lnk, the First
National bank of New York, and .1. 1.
Morgan & Co. in the issuance of bonds
Miatled the committee, and Mr. Tinker's
counsel, Fisher A. Baker and John C.
Spooner. The committee had gone be
ond its usual hour of adjournment In
order to conclude the examination of Mr.
Baker today. Saimicl Untermyer, coun
sel for the committee, was wading
through n mass of heavy statistics re
lating to bond Issues handled by Mr.
Baker's associates. Suddenly he paused
nnd leaneo forward In his chair and shot
n queston at the 73-ycar-oId fnanccr, who,
despite his lonK cxamlnatlop. was cheer
ful and confident.
"Mr. Baker, 1 suppose you do not think
there la a money trust?" demanded the
lawyer.
Doubtful limit Money TrtiRt.
Committee, spectators and counsel sat
forward In their chairs as the room, butj
a moment since dull and stolid, grew
tense with expectancy. The witness
leaned back in his chair, smiled quietly
about him and replied:
"I do not think there U."
'.'What do you understand-by- a money
titri!'cBtnlHlJitennyer continued.
'I. give It up, I don't know," sold Mr.
Baker' wjtji a chuckle.
"Then you do not know whether there
Is one or not do youT" demanded Mr.
Untermyer.
"No, I do not. I don't take much in
terest In that."
"Do you think there Is any kind of a
trust In anything?" queried the lawyer.
"That Is what they call them-Wl these
combinations," said the witness.
"There are some, are there?"
"They call them that; yes, sir."
"And wether there is a money trust you
are not likely to say?"
"No."
"Suppose," said Mr., L'ntermycr, "we
define a money trust as an established,
identity and community of Interest be
tween a few leaders of finance which
they created and held together through
stock holdings. Interlocking directorates
nnd other fornix of domination over
hanks, trust companies, railroads, public
service and Industrial corporations and ,
which lias resulted in vast and growing i
concentrations and control qt money and
ciedit In the hands of a comparatively
few men. Taking that definition, Is there
any doubt of the fact that there has been
of late yearw a vast and growing con
i filtration of credit In the bonds of a
few men?"
Much Cash Concentrnteil.
"Well, there Is a great amount
of
money that has come together here, more
or less, concentrated," replied Mr. Baker
after a pause -
"There have been great mergers of fl-
nanclal Institutions have ther not?"
asked Mr. I'ntermyer.
"Yes, sir." '
Here Mr. Untermyer reviewed some of
the recent combinations of financial In-
stitutlons In New York.
"And there have been a great number
of these consolidations In different Instl-
tutlons in all parts of the country?" he
continued.
"Yes," Mr. Haker replied.
Mr. Untermyer asked Mr. Baker as t..
a "change of policy" on the part of banks
within the last ten years looking toward
the combination or control of financial
Institutions. Mr. Baker said he ha been
concerned In combining some banks and
know of some other combinations, but
said he knew of no complete change of
policy In that connection.
"This Is a sort of a concentration that
has been going on of late years consid

Wool Growers Favor
a Tariff of Not Less
Than Eighteen Cents
CItHYBNNE. Wyo.. Jan. 10-The Na
tional Wool Growers" association's "un
alterable opposition'' to any tariff reduc
tion to less than IS cents a pound on
scoured wool was voiced In a resolution
offered by Secretary S. W. McClure and
adopted at the fort v-riintli annual con
vention of the association here today.
The forty-ninth annual convention of
the National Wool Growers' association
met here In the Ktks' hall yesterday. For
th lat twenty-four hours representative
sheepmen from the lutermountaln states
had been gathering at Cheyenne and the
meotlng Is already a successful one.
Mayor Hill welcomed the delegates on
behalf of the city of Cheyenne and Gov
ernor. Carey on 'behalf of the state.
K.s-Governor Gooding of Idaho, the
president of the association, was unable
to he present and In his absence Hon. A
J Knolllii of Chicago presided. The tlhir
of the morning session wan taken up with
listening to tho annual address of the
eastern vice president. Hon. A. J. Knollin,
and the ieorts of Treasurer F. I). Mir
acle and Secretary S. W. McClure. The
vice president announced the appointment
of an auditing committee, consisting -if
Joe Kinney of Wyoming. T. Boyien of
Otegon and K. Krlcksou of Utah, to
examine tho hooks of the secretary and
treasurer.
In his report Secrctarv McClure stutid
that tho association Imd gained over 20)
per cent In membership during" tho last
year. He rehearsed In detail the work ac
complished during tho last year In getting
better freight rates for shlpiers. etc.,
and thanked the National Wool Ware
house and Storage company for Its as
sistance in many ways.
There Is a strong feeling among the
delegates that the federal government
should co-operate with the i tates In of
fering bounties for tho pelts of predatory
wild animals. It Is pointed out that the
forest reserves provide excellent breeding
places for wolves and coyotes and that
to offset the harm done by segregating
great areas of timber lands In which
predatory wild animals thrive the govern
ment should offer reward for their destruction.

the military authorities have requisitioned
all the food possessed even hy private
Individuals and are making only one dis
tribution, comprising a half ration, dally.
Conditions have been rendered graver
by the great number of sick, who over
