BOCOHT STOCK CONTROL
Suit, for Recovery of $50,000
Interest in Company.
An answer filed in the Supreme Court
yesterday In Representative Herman A.
Metz's suit against lien V. Hardest)' to
recover $50.000 on a note indorsed by
Metx disclosed the fact that the former
Comptroller of New York Is In control
of a company which has a contract with
the Government for carrying all the malls
In the lower part of New Vork city. It
was said yesterday that Representative
Metz's Interest In the mall carrying con
tract would be brought to the attention
of Congress to determine whether It le
proper for a Representative, to be Inter
ested In a contract with the (lovern
ment. The New York Mall Company, with
an office at East Seventeenth street. Is
a corporation with Il.iO.OOO capital stock.
Hardesty was president until April 15
last, when he alleges he was forced out
by Metz. who made Charlea H. Murray
president and other agents and employees
of the Representative were elcted di
rectors. Failed to Pay Note.
Metz's suit Is based on a note made by
Hardesty and Indorsed by Metz. which
was discounted by the Metropolitan Bank.
Hardesty failed to pay when the note
became due anil Metz was held liable.
The suit was brought through Senator
O'lJorman'a firm. GrGormaji. Ilattle &
In his answer Hardesty says that In
February. 190!, the New York Mall Com
pany entered Into a contract with the
ioernment for carrying malls. The con
tract was continued until June 30 last.
The American Surety Company executed
the bond for the performance of the con
tract and Metz Mibsequently signed an
agreement to Indemnify the surety com
pany for any los.
Hardesty alleges that Metz became
the owner nf J31.O00 worth of stock In
the Atlantic Kxpress Company, which con
trolled the mail carrying firm, and ad
vanced Jl 0,000 to enable the latter com-
pany to carry out Its contract. Hardesty
was president when the note on which
the suit Is based was executed.
Buy Control of Xtork.
Hardesty says he and Metz agreed to
purchase stock control of the express
company for J9T.000 and that ho gave
his notes for ItT.oon as part payment
and that the remainder was to be raised
on the $;0.00il note discounted by the
.Metropolitan uatiK. tie says It was
agreed that the stock was purchased for
the benefit of both, He says that Metz
agreed to use his best endeavors to
have the contract with the Uovermnent
Tho defendant alleges he delivered to
Metz's attorney the stock they bought
and on February 10 at the plaintiff's re
quest he Indorsed all the stock In blank,
and it Is now owned by Metz. Hardesty
charged that lie was forced to rei.lgn
as president of both corporations: that
Metz agreed to take care of all the out
standing liabilities, elected his own offi
cers and haa since conducted both com
paniea. Mets la Indlanant.
Representative Metz when seen at his
orrtce. 1'-- Hudson street, was Indignant
at the nature of Hardesty's defence. He
said that the mall carrying contract has
been extended to September 1. and that
the post office authorities have known
of his interest In the contract, and re
quested the extension.
"I got Into the thing through doing a
favor for a couple of people In 1910:
said Mr. Metz. "They asked me to go,
on the bond for Just a week, and when'
I got on I couldn't get oft I had to keep
the company going and when I saw what
Hardesty was doing T had him put out.
It was because of his mismanagement
that the company was running at a loss.
He never put up a cent to buy tho con
trol of the two companies."
"As a member of Congress you wouldn't
feel that It was proper to make a con
tract with the Government, would you'."'
Mr. Metz was asked.
"Cartalnly not," he replied. "I was a
sucker to go into the thing, hut the only
investigation that will be made will be
ma.de by me after next September. Some
of these fellows wilt be sorry before I
get through with them."
Section 3739 of the Revised Statutes of
the United States makes It a misdemeanor
punishable by a tine of 13,000 for a mem
ber of Congress to make, directly or In
directly, a contract with the United States
Government, and provides that such n,
contract shall be void. Section 3740 says
that nothing In the preceding- section
shall extend to a contract "hy any In
corporated company where such contract
or agreement la made for the general
benefit of such Incorporation or com
pany." SAYS HUSBAND BELIEVES IN ROD

Washi.votov. July 24. Col. Martin M.
Mulhnll met with another Impressive denial
to-day when Senator Cummins, a member
of the lobby committee, branded as un
true Mulliall's statement In regard to him.
The lobb) let's statement Involving Sen
ator Cummins wns contained In a lfltter
written by Mulhall to Fred C. Schwedt
man, secretaryto the president of the
N. A. M.. on May 25. 1909.
This letter read In part :
"t called at the ofttces of several friends
on the House side, and not finding any
of them, while going over to the Senate
side of the Capitol 1 met Senator Cum
mins of Iowa. He stated that he was
on his way to Senator Dolllver's room
and Invited me to go with him. I was
wry much pleased on account of this
meeting, for fie was one of the gentle
men I had prepared to see when I was
In New York on account of a siieech made
by the Hon. Nathan E. Kendall, Con
gressman of the Sixth Iowa district. Ken
dall had made a bitter attack upon the
Committee on Lalior. particularly Gard
ner, to have the eight hour bill taken out
of the coitjmltteo's Jurisdiction and bring
It upon the floor.
"When I first started In with Senator
Cummins he seemed to be xery aggressive
against us. but after an Interview of
about twenty minutes lie Invited ine to
meet him In a day or to."
Senator Cummins questioned Mulhall
closely as to statements In the letter. The
brief examination ended, the Senator made
a short statement. He said in part :
"In the first place, strange an It may
appear. 1 have no lecollectlon of ever see
Ins Cot. Mulhall until he appeare.i bef.ire
thl committee, no recollection of ever
speaking to Col. Mulhall on any subject .
but 1 am not prepirrd to ssy that 1 have
not done jo. because there are a great
many men with whom 1 have talked that
of course I do not remember.
"I am positive with regard to the meet
ing In Senator Dolllver's room. It JemJ
to me Impossible that ouch a meeting a?
that could have occurred nnd left no lm
presf Ion upon my memory "
Col. Mulhall resented Senator Cummin.- e
denial of the statement he had made in
the letter and then had sworn to upon the
witness stand. He offered to refresh
Senator Cummins s memor.
"I am getting tired." shouted Mulhall,
"of denials that are made here, denial by
men high In the councils of the Republican
p.irtv all over the I'nlted State". "
"l't docs not make any difference to me,'
broke In Senator Cummins, "whether you
are tired or not. If you do not tell the
truth I am aotng to deny any mis-state-inents

$400,000 at Newport.
NewrotiT, R, I., July 24. It ws re
ported here to-day that nt the next regu
lar session of Congress there will be a bill
Introduced In the House by the Naval
Affairs Committee calling for an appro
priation of $400,000 for Ihe enlargement
of the torpedo factory al the naval tor
pedo station here.
The committee on Its recent Inspection
tour spent some time ut the station and It
was admitted then that the factory with
its capacity of 100 torpedoes a year was
Inadequate to meet the needs of the navy.
The desire of the comtnltce now Is, It Is
understood, to have Congress appropriate
money enough to enlarge, the factory so
that 1,000 torpedoes can be turned out
each year ror ten years.
Wasiiinoton. July '.'4. Representative
Hrltton of Illinois., 'i member of the House
Committee on Naval Affairs, who has Just
completed u tour of Eastern navy yards,
says that the Government should build
more torpedo boats, abandoning Its "stingy"
policy, discontinue a number of navy
yards at Southern ports and commence
the construction of dreadnoughts at Phila
delphia and Huston.
"Japan had l.ftno torpedoes on hand
when war was declared with Russia," he
said. "Her llrst torpedo charge, which
sunk and maimed the Russian fleet, gave
iHpiin the control of the sea The torped.i
practically won the war for Japan.
"I will introduce a bill calling for an
appropriation of Itoo.oon to double the
capacity of the Govi-rnm. nt plant and
