action Is a cevele setback to the eolu

The Hmwc resolution iiutlinrlr.ltiK the

of the C.irienc.x to examine itilo the
affairs of nation. il (unking associations,
for the purpose of Miming mfoi mu
tton for tlie sole use ol a committee of
Concre.'-s "
The position of the Comptmilei' is a'so
detlneil In the . tinning miiiiiii.ii of a
poll Ion of the brief:
'The Comptroller of the Currency Is
morally, although proruiuly not legally,
ktutid to hold in confidence Information
united from national tmnltlng iiRFoola
tlons by virtue of his official nuthorlty,
iMept In so far lis Its publication Is
speeltli'iilly authorized by law."
The brief goes one to say that In
the opinion of Dm author there Is no
law authorizing the Comptroller to fur
nish information he has gathered, and
that he cnntiol be compelled to divulge
nich Information b a committee of the
House of lteptesentatles,
1 if the resolution directing a sub-coin-iniitee
of the House Committee on
I'.inking and Cutreuc.v of the House to
make an Investigation Into matters re
lating 'o the supposed control of the
money market through concerted action
In the operation of national banks nnd
'at orporatlnns engnged In Interstate
commerce, lh" bllef sajs:
"Tie resolution purports to author
ize an Investigation for the purpose of
.iiotiirlug Inforimtion from which to
formulate remedial legislation, nltliough
intuit of Hie Information that Is a
iurotit dcrlied tclate.s to affairs fall

tions of the Xc.v York Clearing lloiie,
the New Yolk Stock I'sclintige .ind thu
insiitanie companies which tire not sub
Jeci to 1'edi tal i nntrol.
"1'isin the passage of the resolution
the committee proceed d to subpicna
tlm mamslng "Ulcers of various na
tional banks and atempted to compel
them to testify to the matters under In
w situation. These kink otllccrs, how
ever, refused to dhulg" an Informa

ground that the same Js pri lleged by
lrtiie of section W J t ot the Itevlsrd
Statutes, which provides as follows:
" '."o nssoclation shall be subject t
any vlsl.orlal powers other than such
as ur- authorized by this title, or ur
v. sted In the iiuirts of Justice'
"The able counsel for the committee
argues that the powers sought to be
eM'iibed by the committee are Inquisi
torial rather than viMiorlal in tin Ir
tint in and therefore not within the
opct toil of this section. However this

ln.li which is lien piesetited, but it Is
Important, I think, to conuldcr the prn
clso powers of the ItoitFe of Itepresenta
tlves, when nctlne Indejicndently of the
Senate,
"The House Is specifically authorized
lo choose n Speaker, cxerciise the solo
power of Impeachment, Judge the elec
tions, returns and (inallllcatlons of lis
own members, determine the rules
of Its proceedings, punish Its members
for disorderly behavior, and with tlu
concurrence of two-thirds expel a mem.
ber.
"There Is no cvpies! grant of author
ity to the House to compel the attend
ance 1 ml testimony if witnesses In con
nection with any luvcrllgatlou which It
may condiu t.
"It Is unite clear, however, that each
branch of Consrcss possesses Implied
power to compel the attendance and
testimony of witnesses to facilitate
the exercise of the powers expresfly
delegated to It by Hie Constitution, nn
the some principle Hint the Congres:i
acting as n legislative body is clothed,
by implication, with smli powers as
may be necessary to the pirformanco
of lis prescribed f unctions.
"Hut lii'iny opinion the House Is with
out Inlieietit power to compel the at
tendance and tejtlniouy of witnesses In
any Investigation which Is not con
ducted In pursuanci of some power ex
pressly delegated lo It us an Integral
department of the Congress."
After reviewing cases bearing upon
and elucidating the question of the pow
ers of Congress, Judge Urown declares
his opinion to be, in the present situa
tion, that Irrespective of the question
of constitutional allowances, the House
Is precluded from examining Into the
affairs or national banks by a fair con
struction of th" existing statute law.
He defines the vlsltorlal power of the
(.loveriunent over national banking as
sociations, together with the power of
supervision and control, which powers,
h" says, are vested in certain officers of
the executive branch of the Ooverntnent
and In the courts of Justice, "to be ex
ert Iscd In accordance with the spirit ns
well as the letter of the national bank
ing laws."
It Is unlawful to assess national
banks for th" expenses of conducting
examinations tinder the banking laws,
the opinion states, nnd then goes on to
the following exposition with respect to
the supervision and control of banking
Institutions:
"The Comptroller Is chnrgfd with the
supervision of national kinks, and ho
is clothed with such authority and
only such authority as Congress con
t elved to be necessary for the effective
exercise of this supervision.
Ii would constitute usurpation of
power lor him to attempt to utilize ma
chinery of his office to tnaki any in
vestigation of national banking asso
ciations which is not 1 0)1 1 .'til pl.t t I'd by
the national kinking laws.
it would fall vvhollv outside of the
purview of these laws, and t.icref.uo
tieyotlil the ptovince of the Coniptloller
or th" 'iirrenc.v . tor 1)1,11 otlKcr Ii
examine into the in!, rn.il affalts of na
! 11 .11 .1 1 banks for the purpose of securing
Information not coiMd.-icd niri"f,irv
to the pciform.ince of bis legitimate
function for use of a committee of
the House of Itepreseuinuves In th"
consideration of new legislation."
Itegardlng Section f2ll of the Itevked
Statutes, limiting the vlsltorlal powers
to which national banking associations
shall ho subject, the brief says they
were enacted to afford protection to
such iissot IntliuiH from Investigations
other than those spccillcally provided by
tlio banking laws, and continues:
"There are many relations arising out
of the business of hanking which are
universally trealed as confidential In the
world of commerce, nltliough they have
not yet bcn recognized as privileged In
the courts of Justice: and It was in all
probability through fear that these ton
ihlence.c might be unduly violated, tui
well us lluoiiuli fear that national bunks
might be oppressed by arbitrary Inier
frrenco. ftom the Comptroller of tho
Currency, or some oilier oilier or
agency of th (lovernmcnt, that Con
gress Incorporated these provisions Into
the national banking laws.
"In my opinion that part of the reso
lution of the House of Representatives
which presumes to direct the Comp
troller to exert bk olllclnl authority In;
behalf of its eommltlce in securing In
formation relative to Ihe operation of
national J'nnks Is squarely in conlllct
with Hie statute law and, to that extent,
devoid of legal force or effect. National
hanks ale creatures of the lawn of t en
gross and the I tiles whereby they shall
live and move and have their being aro
prescribed by the luwa of Congress.
Surely thbi elaborate nnd well consid
ered scheme of organization and opera
tion can only he Interfried with through
legislative expression of the will of Congress."

of the House of Hepresetilatlves,
who arrived here on Friday Irom Wash

personal churRi) of the search for tho

"Close personal friends of Mr. llocke

physically to appear nnd testify, and
and furthermore, he had hew told by
J. K. Jones, son of the late Senator Jonex
of Nevada, who is local counsel for tho
Standard Oil Company In Washington,
that .Mr, llockefeller cannot speak above
u whisper,
"My personal opinion Is that Mr. llocke
feller is not ill, or at least not so ill that
lie cannot npiwnr l-efnro the uummittee.
1 am iiersiiarled that lie is in town and
we're certainly Bolnc to find him," says
Sergt. Hlddell.
Dr. Chapell said yesterday at hlH homo
at 7 Fast Fiflv-tilth street that he, hud
supplied Mr. flockefeller with a formal
certllicato at the latter s request, tun
that he had t-craonally had no corrcspon

lie further declared that he thought it,
would Iki unwise for the oil man to ko to

Secretary of Commerce and Lubor
Xagel a stnlement selling forth that
the suspension of tho Innd killing c(
seals on the I'rlhllofs has resulted n a
large economic waste and financial Ins,
besides depriving mankind of a lora)
tnodlty nf comfort and utllltv.
. Mr. Clark, and Dr. Jordan preten
against the enforcement of the law 0f

killing for Ihe years and urge Its m'.
ineuiuto repcni. 'iney contend that th
treaty entered Into between the Fnlita

prcventH pelagic seultng, Is sufficient
to conserve the herd Hnd that Its. aboil
tlon. an demonstrated by tho cxpr.
encc of the past season, Is nn atlequat
remedy for the decline of the herd.
The statement seta forth that at th
time of the transfer to the United ytttes
of the T'rlbllof Islands the seal hrrd
numbered about -fi00,00f) and that In
IS!8 it bad been reduced to about 10,.
000. It number.; in tho present reason
about 2Ii,000.
The report says that beginning v-rHh
a catch of about 8,000 In 1S!, the num
ber of seals taken by the pelagic hunter
Increased steadily on account of th.
tension of tho licet t 61,000 anlmito
from tho Frlhllof herd In 1SS4 and that
slnco that Uate tho pelagic catch haa
declined with tho declining herd, until
In lull It riumtiercd about 10,000. Ex
amination of the skins of the pelade
catch, flic report Faye, and InvcTtlrallot
of the soxe.t of eeals taken by vesscla in
