R. Seymour haa flnlahed his Inquiry Into
the Are which cost th live of thirty-two
person, moitly women, and which de
stroyed the factory of the Blnghamton
Clothing Company on July 21. The
verdict will probably be transmitted about
September 1.
No person or persons will be named
a responsible for the conditions existing
before the fire and the verdict will be
brief. There will be no recommendation
attached to the verdict.
A resume of the testimony fall to ahow
conclusively where the Ore originated
The evidence ie divided aa to whether It
tarted on the shelf between the flrat and
second floor In th atalrway well, where
pluah canvas, old book and paper were
tored. or In the cellar of the building,
directly under the etalrway well.
The early report that the women em
ployees Imagined the ringing of the flee
bell was merely a signal for another drill
and didn't hurry was disproved by the
testimony. Nearly all of the witnesses
who were on the upper floor declared
that they saw the mok coming up
through the stairway well about th same
time that the bell rang.
Nothing ha been brought out to ac
count for the almost Incredibly rapid
spread of the flame through the build

Ore escapes waa another point brought oat

the employees.
According to the testimony of em

brought out that the labor law relating
to fire prevention In factorlea were Vlo
lated. The alleged violation were to the
effect that while there were metal recep
taclee on each floor to receive clippings
and rubbish they were not covered ; that
the clippings of cloth were not removed
from the Moors twice a day and that they
were not removed from the building each
day, but ware allowed to accumulate for
days and weeks In the cellar of the build

Mlchael. former chief page In the Houee
of Representative and frequently men
tioned by Col. Mulhall as his "principal
news source' In legislative mattera. gave
the House Lobby Committee a new Sen
sation to-night. He testified thst Repre
sentative Jamea T. McDermott of Illinois
during ths pendency of a loan ehark bill
affecting pawnbrokers snd "ten per oent
ers" had been th paid agent of the pawn
brokers. McMlchsel told of s number of In
stances where he had pawned articles of
his own and of MrDermott'a with Wash
ington pawnbroker. He named tleorge
B. Horning. D. Heldenhelmer and S.
Rurnatlne ss persons who had been In
collusion with McDermott to prevent the
passage of the anti-loan shark bill In Its
original form. He told of a cot.'erence
in the Hotel Navarre In New York at
tended by Repreaentatlve McDermott,
Jeerge H. Horning and T. D. McDermott.
general agent of the Cnlted (tnte Brew
ers' Aesoclstlon. At this conference, ac
cording to Mi Michael s story, the agree
ment regarding McDermott activities
against the bill was entered Into.
McMlchsel told of several Instances In
which pawned goods were removed from
the clutches of the pawnbrokers without
the payment of Interest snd of other
Instances where they were returned with
out the payment of even the principal.
He aald that McDermott told him he had
received all told more than 17.00 by
shaking down Washington pawnbrokers.
In the course of his testimony Mc
Michael declared that Henry Neal, Speaker
Clark's colored messenger, snd Harry
Parker. Chairman I'nderwood's messen
ger, had been ta hla knowledge In the
pay of rol. Mulhall.
"McDermott would rather lie than eat,"
wa one of the expressions used by Mc
Mlchsel. May tsapeweh McDermott.
McMloha! asm teetlfted that Repre
sentative McDermott offered to pay him
lAo a month to assume responsibility
for all the letters written to Mulhall
bearing MeDermott'a name. He aald
McDermott tnld him that as a member
of the lipuse and a man with wife and
children, he could not afford to bear the
responsibility. The Illinois member, ac
cording to McMlchael, asked the witness
to assort that all the alleged dealings of
McDermott with Mulhall were really car
ried on by MAIIchael.
It waa the belief here to-night that the
disclosures will result In an effort to Im
peach McDermott and possibly an Investi
gation by the Qrand Jury.
McMlchael kicked a few props from be
neath the already tottering edifice of
Mulhall' exposure. He testified tbat he
wa employed at a salary of ttO a month
by Mulhall from 10 to 1011. His work
consisted solely In collecting and mailing
bills, reports snd other Congressional
documents to Interested member of the
National Aesoclattor of Manufacturer.
You ar sure you never sought to ob
tain private Information through the
medium of the page boysT" demanded
Chairman (larrett.
"Certainly not, sir!" replied Mc
Mlchael. "I would not dare to suggest
such a thing to one of the boya and I
would not consider such conduct on my
own part with regard to any member of
th House of Repreaentatlve. I defy Mul
hall or anybody else to produce a single
one of thorn who will substantiate the
statements made by Mulhall."
Mi Mlcli-.el told of meetings In
Frltx Keuter'a Hotel In Washington
between Mulhall, McDermott and him
self. Tte declared that frequently
at these dinners McDermott and
he would rail fur Mulhall to come to the
hotel, aa they both wer without money,
and Mulhall "alwaya supplied the defi
ciency" Mays McDermott Took berk.
The monthly check fur 1125. his salary
as Representative's clerk, wa drawn to
the order of McDermott, and, except fur
110 or III at a time. McDermott kept
the money.
McMlchael waa unable to describe
with any degree of accuracy any occasion
on which money waa given or lent to
McDermott by Mulhall. He aald that th
money waa covertly handed out In th
private dining room of Frit Renter's
Cross-quest lonsd by Repreaentatlve Fer
ris of Oklahoma as to the uses of th
"prlvste conference room" In the Capitol
used by Mulhall, McMlchsel told the
Oklahoma Congressman that Its princi
pal use, an far. as he could sc, waa "to
sleep off drunk In."
McMlchael explained that hi compen
sation waa paid always by Mulhall. One
when he wa In New York he called at
the office of the N. A. M. and endeavored
to collect arrears of salary, but waa In
formed by 3. P. Bird, general manager
of the association, that be waa Col Mul

to look to Col. Mulhall for the money.
The same thing waa told him, he aald,
by James A. Kmsry when he endeavored
to collect a telephone and carfare voucher
at Mr. Bmery' office.
In regard tu hie relatione with Jamea
