of, a large block of bonds to the State
Comptroller's office he deposited $90,
000 in a safte deposit box in the Fifth
Avenue branch of the Metropolitan
Trust Company and allowed it to re?
main there for a year. The fact that
it drew no interest during this period
did not .appear to worry him,
In explaining his desire to receive
most of his profits in eash.-Judson said
that after the outbreak of war in

would be highly advisable to have
large amounts of money in places
where they would be easily and quick?

through several financial panics and
thought this the safest method to pur?

it more convenient to do business with
cash than with checks.
Pressed by Mr. P?cora to tell just
how h?? disposed of one item of $10,000
in ca>h received from Fanshawe & Co.,
Judson said he had bought jewelry
from Tiffany and also from Charlton
on Fifth Avenue. He declared that he
had also made a number of unprofit?
able investments, but preferred not to
go into detail about them, as he did
not wish to "add to the store of knowl?

Judson, who is a man about si>:ty,
wore dark glasses when he entered
the District Attorney's office, where the |
inquiry is being conducted before Jus?
tice Frederic Kcrnochan. lie had to be !
assisted to the witness chair by his
attorney, Senator Walter R, Herrick.
Later the witness said that bis eye?
sight had been failing since last June.
During the recess a reporter asked him
how ho managed to count, the large
Minis of money he said he usually had
with him if his eyesight was so liad.
Judson reached into his inside pocket i
and drew out an unfolded bundle of
what, seemed to be several hundred
dollars in new money. It was divided
by elastic hands. Around the one dol-I
lar hills there was one band, .around ?
the fives there were two, the tens were

During the time that Judson was tes- j

Many Friends in Albany
In telling of his many trips to Al?
bany to discuss prospective bond in?
vestments with Comptroller Eugene M,
Travis and Deputy Comptrolled James
A. Wendell it developed that the wit?
ness bas a wide .acquaintance at. the
state capital. He said that, when he
was graduated from college, in 1882, he
became assistant business manager of
The Albany Evening Journal, owned by
William Barnes, although it was not
until 1914 that he acquired the 100
shares of stock in that publication
which he later pledged, with $50,000
worth of New York City bonds, as col?
lateral for a loan of $46,000 which he
obtained from the Metropolitan Trust
Judson said his father had for many
years been chief examiner in the State
Banking Department, and that he him?
self had been for some time account?
ant and statistician to the State Board
of Railroad Commissioners. He said
it was during this time, that hi? first
became acquainted with Deputy Comp?
troller Wendell, to whom he frequent?
ly referred yesterday as "Jimmy."
When Judson took the stand bo was
informed of his right to refuse to
answer questions that might incrim?
inate him, and when asked to sign a
waiver of immunity Mr. Herrick in?
formed the court that while his client
had been willing to do this, tie had re?
fused to permit it.
Mr. P?cora asked Judson who had as?
sisted him in carrying on his bond
transactions and the witne?i replied
that he liad employed three stenog
raphers who had acted as private sec?
retaries, hut that one had gone to
Havana, another to Lake Champlain
and the third to California. The wit

to ascertain why Judson's name had
been concealed in the various ?hals
carried on by him through Fanshawe,

Red Admiral Deposed
By Mutinous Sailors
From The 'Tribune's Washington Bureau
WASHINGTON, Oct. 11.?
Mutinous Bolshevik sailors have
deposed Admiral Raskilnikov,
head of the Soviet. Baltic fleet, ac?
cording to a report received to?
day by (lie State Department.
Apparently the outbreak occurred
simultaneously in the fleet and
on shore, but was less successful
on shore, being put down by
armed -force. Saratov, Tambof,
Wiasma and Smolensk, important
railroad points, were reported to
have been the scenes of outbreaks
' reaching the proportions of a re?
volt against the Bolshevik regime.
' asked if ha recalled a sale of $1,061,
100 worth of bonds to the state in
Anril, L916, Judson1 replied: "I do not.
I have had a very poor memory all
"Is that why you never kept busi?
ness accounts -or records?because you
preferred to trust to a poor memory?"
snapped Mr. P?cora.
The profits derived by Judson and
; Fanshawe in this deal amounted to
$32,645.48, of which $16,804.80 went to
judson, and $15,840.68 to tin* brokers.
The witness said that from the figures
he would imagine it was a joint ac?
count between himself and Fanshawe,
although he had no idea why the profit
was split the way it was. Prior to this
tb( same concern put through a deal
for Judson in which the profit to the
bond trader had been $3,241.76, while
that derived by Fanshawe, according
to the records, was only $48. 5. The
witness could not explain the great
difference in the profits received by
the broke!- in the two deals.
Mr. P?cora refreshed Judson's mem?
ory concerning a bond sale made ir
May, 1915 in which the nrufit, amount?
ing to $24>912.90, enriched him b\
$23,077.16. of this amount Judson ad?
mitted receiving $17,000 in cash, al?
though he could not recall what he ha<
done with it. lie swoiv that in non?
of the transactions did V- split hi?
profits with any one. II- said tha
ne kept most of his money in sat'i

Company and the Metropolitan Trus*.
On May, 23, 1916, Judson sold to th<
state a block of bonds on ivhich hi
profit amounted to $148,292.98, whili
that of Fanshawe was S22.807. Th?
witness admitted that he collectoi
$123,292.98 of his profit in currenc;

Witness Tens of Deals
Judson w; 3 asked t ?> give his own
version of the negotiations carried on
between himself and the State Comp?
troller's office which led up to the sale
of November 16, 1917, whim $2,013,000
were disposed of to the state, about
one year after Fanshawe- said they
were t.?> lie sold. In telling of his ac?
tivities in arranging for this sale the
witness displayed an intimate knowl?
edge of state finances and the printed
data issued in connection with them by
the Comptroller each month. He said
he usually was able to tell when the
Comptroller would have money on hand
for bond investments.
Judson said that in some cases he
discussed prospective bond sales with
Wendell;, but in most instances the ar?
rangements were made with Comptrol?
ler Travis personally. fie admitted
that there had been occasions when
bonds were sold to the state ?it more
than the quoted market figure.
The questioning about this particular
block of bonds brought up the subject
of "wash sales" made by interested
parties in order to bring about the
quotation of certain prices on the Stock
Exchange. The witness was asked
whether he had given to the firm of
Folsom & Adams orders to buy bonds
at certain prices just before making
sa*lfs to the state.
?'Wasn't it your intention to make
certain prices on issues you intended
selling later to the State Comptroller's
office?" asked Mr. P?cora.
Judson replied that such mighl be
the case, but he was not certain about
Deputy Comptroller Wendell waived
