Senator Bailey Tells Investigating
Committee of Written Opinion.
Austin. Tex., Feb. 20.— Senator Joseph W.
Bailey, before the Investigating committee, con
tinued the story of his financial der'l^ with John
H. Kirby. a Texas lumberman: S. C, Bane, pres
ident of the Seaboard National Hank, of New
York: Henry Clay Pierce, president of the
board of directors of the Waters-Pierce OH
Company; V.. F. Yoakum, hen of the "Frisco
pystem, and with various other financiers.
One of the most important statements was
that he had been ask«d by the Standard Oil
Company officers In New York Immediately
after the Beaumont oil field boom to give them
an opinion ns to what the opportunities were
for the Standard Oil Interests to re-enter the
state a^ain and do business.

Senator Bailey told ( f his adventure? in the
financial world, and firmly maintained that al!
of his acts and deeds had been honorable and
above reproach. He told of hi? efforts to assist
his client, J. 11. Kirby, in regaining his stock
from Patrick Calhoun. of Wall street, and paid
that the Jir.6.000 he bor-^uved was because the
K!rly l.jnib-r ComjMJty could fibt legally as
sume these otiliz'J(/iiw. Ho as* • I that Henry
Clay Piorco jravj li'n i. written guarantee for
th* paymw.t if tt;« mm r.f money.
The oxpitLnatir-n of r.:s former oil Interests In
Texas \v:.« exhaustive- ir. detail. The Senator
denied that he bad conducted an oil business In
Texas In conjunction with the Waters-Pierce
Oil Company or the Standard Oil Com]
The concern which he took over for ■ debt was
known as the Southwestern OH Company, a sub
sidiary concern of th Houston Oil Company,
the latter company having a timber contract
with the Kirby Lumber Company.
V.. F. Yoakuin, he explained, had purchased
chares of the Kirby Lumber Company stock
upon his solicitation. These shares were trans
ferred to the St. Louis & San Francisco Rail
way.
Senator Bailey went in!., detail regarding hi*
attorneyshlp ■■• the Tennessee Construction
Company. "There «ras serious apprehensions,"
he said, 'that the Tennessee Central Hniiroad
would be thrown into the hands of a receiver
egain. I mad" an inspection of the railroad. I
went back to Mr. Pierce and others interested
and told them that it would not be advisable to
foreclose on the railroad and take charge Of it.
I thought the construction company should sell
Its sto<k to the Southern Railway and the Illi
nois Central. I thought that Nashville should
have more than one railroad. I was urged to
sell the railroad bonds, nnd I did It.* 1 think the
bonds wore sold in .inly. 1005, giving Nashville
needed railroads. The city of Nashville had
subscribed m.OOii for the building; of this
railroad. I consulted number of men win
were interested in the city's welfare, and they
favored my plan. The collieries still belong to
the Tennessee Construction Company."
"Did you ever change your clothes and dis
guise yourself." asked Mr. odell. of the com
mittee.
"No." was the reply. "During my trip over the
Tennessee Central system I stopped at many
places along the line, and my visits were report
ed. In St. Louis and Nashville papers. There wns
not a dollars worth of securities turned over to
me. My duty was to try to do something with
the property, if I could."
Senator BalJey denied that he had ever rep
resented Adolphus Busch in any transaction. "I
have not concluded my attorneyshlp with the
Tennessee Construction Company yet," said
Senator Bailey.
Senator Bailey paid there was not a shadow
of truth in the charge that he had accepted
money for political services rendered the Wat
ers-Pierce Oil Company.
Regarding his debt with B. F. Toakum, Sen
ator Bailey said that he urged that Mr. Yoa
kum buy KJrbj Lumber Company stock, and
showed him the tonnage advantages ■ ■< him and
his railroad. '1 was acting fcr the Kirby Lum
ber Company in that transaction."
Senator Bailey denied emphatically that his
effort In behalf of his clients had any , <■„.,., on
his public duties. He said that his attendance
upon sessions of Congress was as regular as
that of any other mem her.
Frequently during the afternoon Senator
Bailey denounce,! The charges as "ii, s" and his
enemies as "liars."

Would Cut City s Purse Strings for
Good of Department.
Po]]ce Commissioner Blngham nn<l the "N'lne
On«ls < f War" by which he swears seem ta be
about ready to swoop down <>t: the City Uni! i>y
forced marches and do a bit of lynching
"lynchee«," prospectivelyi being the honorabla
Board of Estimate and Apportionment, of which
the Mayor is chairman, and the honorable P :ard
of Aldermf-n. of which '"Little Tim" Sullivan Is the
boss
The trouble with Genprai Btngham eeemp to
arise f?om contributory causes, namely, that tli"
Ttirse rtringS o< the city n-e held jointly by the
Board of nstimato nnd l>y the Board of Aldermen:
thnt thesf organic: bodies canno: be abolished; that
they An not appropriate iv.<>ne>* f;^st enough tn build
new station Nou«e« to suit the chief war X"d at
Mulberry street, nnd that Genera Ringham was
addressed yesterday by nn absent-minded patrol
man as "Corporal. Bingham. Anyway, he "cut
loose" nt the Board of Estimate ni;d Apportion
ment :.t:.l the' aldermen. Intimating very clearly
that, lr maddened «MUz"n<= should tnke It Into their
heads to sack the City Hal!, draw and quarter the
Board of Estimate, hamstring "Little Tim" Sulli
van, gag Alderman Peters chloroform Alderman
Downing and blot out Regr" r> ill he (Bingham)
would consider It a considerable blessing, or words
to that effect.
General Ringlinm not long ago got SZ.COo.unn for
new stations and repairs. But what of that? pays
the general. This If New York expanding New
York— and what does $£,000,000, more or l»>ss.
amount to? General Bingham said that the most
of the $2,000,000 already appropriated had heen
absorbed, jrulp^d down, sponged up, for ' • lira to
Present buildings and for tearing down old ones.
He mentioned the Old Blip, Leonard street..l
bei street Delancey street and < >.ik street stations
in Manhattan and the Adams Mrf-et and low»r
Fulton strert stations In Brooklyn that should be
replaced without delay. Continuing. he said:
"I have l.een doisit my b^st to divide up su ;h
districts as the Flathngh District and the 19th
Precinct, or the T^ndorloin. and also districts In
The Bronx, and to build new station houses in
pueh divided districts; but the Board of Estimate
and Apportionment and the Board of Aldermen act
like p. lot of children.
"They don't comprehend that this city Is growing
faster than any other city in the world. It Is al
most Impossible for me to accomplish anything. be
cause the citizens don't do their d'.ity. They wnn't
put men In the board who will do thfir duty. I
would make this suggestion a? a cood nnn for the
citizens. I'd hold a mass meeting In wmc big hall
and, I'd pick fifty or sixty of the h!gK''«=t and huski
est m n at the meeting I would select men from
each of the districts of th. city, and with these
lr.f-n I'd storm the City Ha take out the alder
mon nd stick them up against a wall, and I'd say
to them:
" 'What are you going to do for me? Are vow
going to play foliticr. or re you g"!ng to give us
what we want.
"It seems to me that th!s is fh" only solution rt
the problem. 'Die people don't run- the city flti;
mor«: it's run by the Hoard of Aldermen and a
pack of fools.
"They're always wrangling about fomethln* or
othT and rl a >' politics. They are so busy doing
that th^y nave no time to do anything else.
It was EiiEg<-*t'-<l to the commissioner that If a
committee of cimer.s should storm th« City Hall
a riot call would t>e sont out. He replied:
"Well, let's have a riot call. \\'n could cope
with it."

such importance that it cannot be ignored. The formation of The Tribune Encyclopaedia Club,
the first announcement of which was printed in The Tribune of February 3, has aroused an
enthusiasm which cannot be measured in mere words. From every section of the country,
wherever this newspaper circulates, leading men and women in every walk of life have signed
