a closed book until their publication In
Tun Si n herewith,
Muestliiii .if lHcorHrntfnii.
The Hughes commission, like the
Pujo committee,' Inquired into the
organisation of the Stock F.xchange.
The tlrst question of the Hughes com-'
mission related to the desirability of
the incorporation nf the exc'hangn
under the laws of the Slate, as dis
tinguished from Its continued existence
as a membership association or club not
amenable to those laws which govern
other Incorporated bodies. That ques
tion, which Is the most Important thtt
has been raised by the Pujo commit
tee and In regard to wnlch members
of the Pujo committee have intimated
a thirst for further knowledge, was dis
cussed at greatest length In the reply
of the Stock F.xchange to the Inquiries
of the Hughes commission.
Substantially the same answer that
was made lo the Hughes commission,
It was learned yesterday, will be glxen
to the Pujo committee next week. In
the beginning this answer says:
"The Slock F.xchange is a voluntary
organization of a body of men, subject
to rules which wro rarely broken nnd
which are scrupulously enforced at all
times, with the necessary penalty for
any violation. The Stock Exchange has
practically no property but Its realty,
It does not exercise fiduciary trusts nor
tnke charge of the properly of others:
therefore a charter would not confer
upon It any benefit nor Is It necessary
In the transaction of Its business, which
Is based upon an agreement U'lween one
' member nnd another. It hns'no inter-
est either n the purchase or sale of any
security. It Is simply a place provided
where the buyer shall meet, the seller
nnd obtain at all times n market for
Cite l.nniliiu Kxperlencr.
The brief of the Stock Exchange goes
on to recite the experience of the Lon
don Stock Exchange, which was alfo
subjected to criticism because ll was a
voluntary association, nnd shows that
exhaustive argument of the question be
fore n Parliamentary commission re
sulted 'In leaving the London exchange
In Its previous form. It then brings out
the argument which Is considered most
Important by the Stock Exchange au
thoritiesthat is, that a voluntary asso
ciation has plenary powers of discipline
over its members which could not be
exercised by nn Incorporated associa
tion. In n voluntary association If fraud
or wrongdoing 'Is even suspected the
suspected member mny be expelled and
the wrongdoing either prevented or Im
mediately punished, whereas in an In
corporated association the disciplined
member might appeal to the courts and
tie up the business of the exchange
without any advantage whatever to tht
customers or members he sought to
"Tho disciplinary power of the grov
eiTilng committee of the Stock Ex
change over its members," the brief
nays, "Is essentia! to ILa well being and
vital to the maintenance among Iti
members of high standard of honor In
business dealings. As It Is at presen
organized the members are bound by a
contract which the courts will enforce,
and those who are thoroughly conver
sant with the history of tho Exchan;t
would bo unanimous in testifying to th"
efficiency and fairness with which tljt
governing committee's power of num
mary discipline haa been exercised.
"Tho distinction between the expul
sion of a member of such a voluntarily
unincorporated association or removal
of a member of a corporation Is very
Important. Tho moment the body re
ceives a charter a different set of prin
ciples comes Into piny ns regulating the
relations between the member nnd the
