1 The further the testimony given be
r fore the Special Grand Jury In the
J Metropolitan examination Is scrutinized
the more apparent It becomes that I
fi a TVlllfcim C Whitney whose guiding
tW t creed In life was loyalty to his friends
a has been chosen as the butt for blame
f t Ii by his former associate
J Paul n Craath counsel to the Met
Jj ropolltan and Thomas F Ryan was
r t examined at gr < 6t length by the Special
JI Grand Jury This Is what he said about
i William C Whitney
i The present condition of the Metro
politan organization Is du i In a Kre t
I l measure to Sir William C Whitneys
mistakes He was a great IJ1lna man
of power and ability and tremendous
11 energy and great foresight He worked
constantly to brine about the consollda
tk > n of the street railway sjrctems of
H
Manhattan
I
i BUT
i Mr Whitney was not fnmllKr with
toe physical and financial condition of
ij the various properties He sacrificed a
i great deal to his scheme of consolida
r tion Involving the Metropolitan In ex
I pensive leases some of which have
T been borne by It nt a lass
All through the testimony of the vari
I ous witnesses contested with the Met i
j ropolitan In capacities of power and In
f v fluence there ran this undercurrent I
I William C Whitney was a great I
IT ronn BUT I

h i Acted as Dummy
sr When the Grand Jury first began Its
p Inquiry Into the sale of the Wall and
it Cortlandt Streets Ferry Hallway fran
is chise by Anthony M Brady for JDtfOOO
to the Metropolitan Securities Com
f pany as brought out before the Public
il Service Commission they sent for
everybody who had anything to do
I
1 with the sale On the records the name
1 of George S Bixby a lawyer of No
62 William street stood out as the
vendor of the franchise The records
showed that he had sold JlCnODOO worth
of bonds and 1000000 worth of stocks I
of the Wall and Oortlandt Streets Com I
t pany to the Metropolitan Securities
I Company and directed the check to
be sent to Mr Brady
When Biifty appeared before the
Grand Jury he was flabbergasted to
ay the least Mr Jerome asked him
to tell the Grand Jury what he knew
about the sale
I only know replied the lawyer
that there was a transaction in which
the franchises or securities passed
I through my hand replied Blxby ser
lously
+ Only a Trustee
You figure In the papers as the
j vendor of the franchise exclaimed Mr
Jerome in some surprise
I did but I only held It as the trus
tee
teeFor
For whom wore you trustee
L couldnt tell from recollection
was the astonishing reply
I What did you hae to do with Mr
Whitney In connection with the trans
tt action
1 J I never saw Mr Whitney
l From whom did you receive the
j million dollars worth of bonds and the
million dollars worth of stock
Well now I cannot tell you from
recollection said the lawyer who ap
parentl suffered from lapse of mem
t ory
iti Cant you recollect who your spent

I have absolutely no recollection of
J the Wall and Cortlandt streets dea

dummy Inquired a furor
Certainly he does replld Mr Je
