Reports on Assisted Emigration
Led to Trouble in Hungary.
According to th^ statements of several Im
migration inspectors at ..iu Island yesterday,
Marcus Braun, the Special Immigration In
spector, who is having trouble with the Hun
garian authorities at Budapest, expected this
friction before he left New-York. Previous to
bis departure he confided to h!s fellow Inspectors
that, although of Hungarian birth, he incurred
the hatred of tin officials of his native country
last yc-ur when on a similar trip he exposed the
methods used by the Hungarian government in
Bending undesirable emigrants to this country.
Bruun wag sent to Europe early this spring
by the Department of Commerce and Labor to
obtain Information and evidence against all
forms of assisted Immigration. He was par
ticularly Instructed to Investigate the conditions
in Hungary, where the government has a con
tract with the Cuna.nl Line, to the exclusion of
all other*, whirl-, provides that it shall receive
a percentage of profits arising pom the business
<3<"in» through th< transportation of Hungarians
to this country.
Mr. Braun is well known In Republican polit
ical circles In th!<! city. He is president of the
Hungarian Republican Club, and presided at
the dinner which was given last winter by the
club for President Roosevelt. It. was on the
President's recommendation; it is said, that he
■was appointed a special inspector.

Consul General Chester is acting energetically
in the matter. Ho revested the chief of police
to make inquiry Into the matter of Braun's
treatment. This the chief declined to do. but

Astonishment is expressed hero at the pro

No further information is obtainable. The

stood that neither military attaches nor the

VERSIONS OF THE KAISER'S SPEECH.
Alarming Utterances Not Given — Russian
Berlin, May 12. — The- "Frankfurter Zeitung '
to-day gives tha following version of the re
markß made recently by Emperor "William at
Strasburg to the highar officers after a review:
A.s we hear it, the Emperor tho day before
yesterday said to the officers after a review
that certain aspects of the Russo-Japanese War
emphasised the neceSHlty for sober, moral living
among the officers and men. lie pointed out,
also, tho significance ot the race groupings in
Ea>t AEia. which might become Important for
th>- (Jftrinan army.
"Th(» Strasabtirger Post" gives a version of Em
peror William's speech to the officers differing ma
terially from "Th« Burger Zeltungs" report, but
containing a number of other Interesting details.
The Emperor spoko for half an hour, and "The
Post's" report gives only coma of his most strik
ing utterances. Ho »^(i:
Young men In tha army must have more to do;
they must work hard all clay, so as to be thoroughly
fatigued by evening and want to go to bed' early,
instead of seeking enervating pleasures. The offi
cers' corps Is the soul of the army and muat ever
be kept In trim; otherwise the army suffers.
The present war furnishes examples enough of
that. The Japanese officers' corps is extremely ef
ficient, and, like the Japanese common soldier, ha«
etood the test fully. The Russian officers* corps,
on th« other hand, has completely failed, 'whereas
tho Russian soldiers have behaved well and fought
bravely. My son told mo Russian officers bought

that in such extended battlefields the commander

There he only has a view of the part of the field

General Kuropatkin committed tho error of going
to the front. The Japanese commander in chief
Marshal Oyama, remained far to the rear, and
conducted from there a vastly extended, struggle.
He received telegraphic reports, gave telegraphic
orders and sat thore as calmly as a chess player,

HYDE COMPLAINT SERVED
f .nflnnfd from flr»t page.
Plaintiffs an; informed anil believe when tht> syn
dlcate transactions of James 11. Hyde ;tJid Apso
ciates occurred, in which Japanese <\ p<>r cent bonds,
first series, were underwritten, plaintiff James H.
Hyde was In K.imi>o.. Participation In this syndi
cate was ciffrre<l to defendant personally and he
accepted, on behalf of James 11. Hyde and As?o
ciates, and personally mado the allotments to mem
bers of the syndicate, allotting to him.^lf a J250.W10
participation and to James 11. Hyde a like amount.
Subsequently a sub-committee of the executive,
committee of the ETqultable society, composed of de
fendant and ni'.e other, but not Mr. Hyde, au
thorized the purchase by the society of part of the
Issue of these bonds, and the purchase was made
while Mr. Hyde was still In Kurope.
These transactions were. In continuance of a cus
tom that bad existed In which the defendant had
been a party and beneficiary for many years prior
to the connection '>f James Hazen Hyde with the
society. In none of such instances was there any*
tiling Improper <>r Injurious to the society or its
Interests. The defendant in all instances received
and collected a .-heck for th 6 sum of money and
at tho same time us that received by the said Hyde
on each of saJd transactions.
As to the charge that said James Hazen Hyde
was in any way interested or concerned in the
United States Shipbuilding Company, the statement
la unqualifiedly false. He was never In any way
The false and defamatory charges have had tha
effect of seriously impairing public confidence in
James Hazen Hyde, and in the society and its
manasemc-nt, and has affected Its prosperity. The
organization has been crippled, the business In
and notwithstanding the unquestioned sol
vency nnd stability of tho society, many of its
pollcyholders have become alarmed for the safety
of their Investments, resulting in litigation In many
of the States ami demoralisation among its em
ployes. All -.hese disastrous results and the conse
quent injury to the stock, of which the defendant
Is a trustee, are directly chargeable to the con
spiracy of the defendant nnd to his perfidy In at
tempting for his own selfish purposes to destroy the
value of the property Intrusted to his care.
A STOCK CONSPIRACY ALLEGED.
The general complaint continues:
Plaintiffs are lnforme-1 and believe that the de
fendant has mado no effort whatever to induce
Hyd.- on his attaining the iqre of thirty years and
on the termination of the trust, or at any time, to
make a new settlement of the stock. The defend
unt h:ig for many months past been secretly en
gage.l in organizing and carrying on a conspiracy,
the purpose and effect <>f which, if successful,
would be to take (!.■■ power of controlling th" maJi
agement of the society away from the stock with
out tin consent of its holders, and to confer this
power ostensibly on the poUcyholders ot the soci
ety but In a form in which he expects to be able
to control such management through the proxies
which tho agents ot the society would secure from
poUcyholders, fecurlng the control for himself and
his relatives. Up to fho third day of February.
1906, this m«v< ment was conducted by tho derena
ant in secret.
Mr. Tail .11 ia introduced thus:
The defendant, who owed his connection with the
society and his prosperity to the friendship and
generosity of Henry B. Hyde, inaugurated the con
spiracy, joining with himself Gage K. Tarb«ll. tho
6econd vice-president of the society. All the overt
act?* :r. the conspiracy were* committed with tne
aid and connivance of TarbeH with the Intent to
secure to the defendant and Tarbell the control
of the society and its assets freed from tho rights
and cowera over the control of the society and Ha
assets* incident to the ownership of the stock of
which fhe defendant was on© of the trustee*.
"It was tha desire of Henry B. Hyde," says
the complaint, "as was well known to the de
fendant, thn.t the control of tha stock so placed
In trust, and the responsibility for the selection
of the directors of the society and for its man
agement, should remain In his descendants as
"long: as the law would permit."
The complaint rccitog how Mr. Hyde was sum
moned before President Alexander, who de
manded that he should resign. It tells how Mr.
Hyde, to prevent the destruction of the value of
the stock, offered to compromise by offering 1 to
have his stock voted for five years by the di
rectors, in the mean time steps to be taken. If
ry, to retire th^ stock anil to conserve
the rights of stockholders and policyholders.
Tho complaint says the board of directors de
cided to "mutuallze" the company and buy the
Hyde stock, and how they found that they had
no power to purchase it.
SAYS HE HAS RESIGNED.
Tho reply of Mr. Alexander's counsel is largely
along the lines of recent statements from the
Alexander side. He declares that the plan of
mutuallzatlon advocated by Mr. Alexander
simply carries the original design of the charter;
to its logical conclusion.
Notwithstanding Mr. Hjde's recent statement
that Mr. Alexander would not be permitted to
resign his trust, It is insisted that Mr. Alexander
has "voluntarily resigned, as he had the right
to do under the agreement."
Every step in the direction of "mutualization."
It Is added, has been taken with "a sincere and
disinterested purpose." The "pretence" that Mr.
Hyde has "acted under duress' is characterized
The allegations of the complaint are regarded
"as merely intended to create a false impres
sion and as utterly Immaterial to the main ques
"The purpose of this action." says the reply,
"can hardly be to obtain relief in the courts. It
merely seeks to divert attention from the vital
question of giving to the policyholders the con
trol of their own property."
Mr. Hyde, it was learned yesterday, left town
for his Long Island home on Thursday night,
; in d, unless his presence is urgently demanded,
will not return until next week.
Owing to Superintendent Hendrlcks's absence
yesterday, his investigation was postponed until
Mr. Tarbell, it is said, will be examined either
on Tuesday or Wednesday, when he will bo
asked, bo report has it, as to his early business
career, his alleged practice of "rebating" and as
to the salary of his stenographer, who is said
to receive $12,000 a year.
In his examination by Superintendent Hen
drlcks. Mr. Alexander, it was said yesterday,
was asked if he had authorized the denials of
his sharing with Mr. Hyde In underwriting syn
dicates. The following checks made by Mr.
Hyde and payable to Mr. Alexander, by whom
they wore indorsed, were shown to Mr. Alexan
der it is paid: January 28, 1005, $12.52373;
April 28 HtO4, $2.98364; January 11. I'.hC*. $28,

CHECKS IN SYNDICATE DEALS.
As to the two checks, one for $28,26681, of
January 11. and th« other for 512J52373, of Jan
uary 23, for syndicate profits on two Japanese
loans, which Mr. Alexander had stated that he
had handed over to the .ashler of the society, it
appeared on his examination, It Is said, that
both went into his own trustee bank account.
On February 1. the day before Mr. Alexander
confronted Mr. Hyde with the memorial, ha
drew a check for these two amounts, which was
handed to tha cashier of toe society, it is nald.
