Untermyer Defends Wiison's
Attitude Toward Trusts.
(By Telegraph te The Trlbune.)
New Haven, Nov. 8.?Samuel Hnter
myer came agaln to the defence of Oov?
ernor Wilson last nlght by taklng up
Colonel Rooaevelfs reiterated charge thal
Governor Wiison's record as Governor of
New Jersey iu deallng with the trusta
was inconsintent with hla preaent poal
tlor. on the trust problem.
Speaklng at New Haven, Mr I'nter
mver sald that he preferred to attrlbute
thla elevenih-nour attack to want of
knowledge of the facts. rather than to an
absence of alncerity.
Aa to the assertlon that Governor V* il
son falled to prosecute the trusts formed
under New Jersey laws, Mr. Hnterm.ver
aald every novlce in the laws knew that
tlie state could not confer on corpora
tlons varloiis prtvileges and then prose?
cute them for avalling themseives of thoae
advantage*. It was unfortunate that such
wide powera had ever been beatowed upon
corporatlons, he added. but that had been
done many yeara ago.
The aecond part of the charge. asserting
that the reaaon Governor Wllaon did noi
proi ure a change ln the New Jeraey cor?
poration laws, has been repeatedly an
swered. Mr. I'ntermyer said. by quota
tions fiom Governor Wiison's message to
the ".-.eglslature of New J. rsey. The t>g
Ulature being antagonlstlc to Governor
Wllaon'a party, his programme waa not
carrled out, Mr. Untermyer declared.

This has been one of tbe most interest

Behind President Taft stand Ihe men

majority ln both branches of Congresa
The stat.-ment was in part as followa:
Wilson and Marahall will have the

Thev wlll recelve also the largesl popular
vote ever glven to a polltical pai t> ln the
liisti.ry of the l'nlted States.
Thev wlll carry not b-.a than forty or
the torty-eight states, and are likely to
carry all of them. A unanimous vote in

knocked from my noae. and I afterward
found that the left lena wa* broken. I
had another pair of glaasea wlth me.

hands and was astonished to flnd that
lt waa bleeding profusely. Some of the
blood got on my overcoat. I knew it

"There were still some people in the
street. and the chauffeur called to two
boys and asked where we could flnd a
doctor. The boys got on tlie front of
the car wlth the chauffeur and guided
him to Dr. Tltua'a offlce, a few blocks
away. The boys were the flrat to get to
the doctor's door."
Dr. Tltus, Governor "Wilson aaid.
found aome halrs lmbedded in the
wound, and these he carefully cleared
away. "I must say that Dr. Tltus
showed rare Judgment whni he declded
not to sew the wound. He found that
by drawlng the edges together and
painting the cut wlth collodlon the
same effect was had," the Governor
sald. "Then he adjusted a flnlshlng of
gauze, and I was as good as new.
"My family physieian, Dr. Car
nochan, was eloquent ln his praise of
Dr. Titus's nkill when he made an ex
amlnatlon of the wound later. Dr.
C'arnoehan redressed lt. but that would
have been necessary ln any case."
Captain "Blll" McDonald, the Texas
Hanger. who for the last few weeks
has served as a bodyguard for Gov?
ernor Wilson. was wlth him at tlie time
of the accldent, and he also received a
number of sllght brulsea.
Automobilfl Strikaa Mound in Road.
Tho Governor was passing through
Hlghtstown, when the automoblle,
whlcli was golng i t a rapid rate, struck
mound in the road. bounded a couple
of feet and threw the Governor out of
his seat and against one of the sup
ports of the top of the ear,
Hlood began to trickle down Gov?
ernor Wiison's face and over his ehlrt
and collar when he resumed hla seat,
and Captain McDonald. greatly
alarmed, ordered tho automoblle
stopped at once.
Inqulries were made in the town and
ih? Governor was tnken to the home of
Dr. Franklin. who at once called Dr.
George K. Titus tO asslst him. Ofl the
way to the physlcian's home Governor
Wilson protested that every one was
taking the accldent too seriously, and
hO sugg- sted going to his home here
before cal'.lng In a physlclan.
Capt.tln M^Donnld. however. pf?nd>d
with the Governor t,o have his wound
examined. and he linally yic.ded to his
r ntreatien.
Taking off hii overc jat. the Governor
sat down, while the two physieians
shaved off a small patoh. of hair near
the top of his head and found a paintul
stalp wound, four inchea long, from
which blood was flowlng freely.
After washing snd cauterizlng the
wound the physiclans dreseed It with
gauze, adding a amall plece of court
plaater. The Governor abaolutely re
fused to rtllow the wound to be dresaed
with a bandage. "I don't want to go
home with my head tied up," he said,
adding that if he did oo his wife and
daughters would be seriously slarmed
before he had time to explsln to them
the nature of the accldent.
The Oovernor thanked the phyaicians
for thelr prompt work, cllmbed into the
automobile and, -with Captaln McDon
sld, reaumed hls homeward Journey.
The Governor left Red Bank about 11
o'clock last night ln an automobile
plsced at his disposal by Abram I.
Elkus. After hla speech at the Lyeeum
he went to Mr. Elkus's home, and after
a llght luncheon started for here.
One of the flrst thlnga the Oovernor

He said they would not prevent him
from keeping his engagements to speak

and all the atternoon telegrams and
telephone messages poured Into thla

Governor's condltion. They came from
all parts of the country, and were so
numerous that late ln the afternoon he
humorously said that he had been so
