Hi went to far as to Intlnmt" to the commlttr there mlirht bo trouble In thn limine I world unless onw features uero ctuwiteil. i Tor Inttancv, tlir former eounsvl of the Pujo committer told the I!oue nii'mbers that In lireparlnt? u hill to prohibit the wtletenco of holding coniia.tiles .1 dlntlnc-. Hon should bo dran between Rood and bad companies of this character. Mr. TJntermyr argued that In framltiK tho holding company hill discretionary power should bo lodged somewhere, preferably In tho Interstate trade commlixlon, to de termlno wht holding companies should bn pormltted to continue In business and what companies should be eliminated. Mr. L'ntcrmyer's niggestlon seemed to m&ko a strong Impression on tho com mittee, but tho practical dlincultles In the. wy of carrying It out were acknowledged to bo great. Tho New York lawyer urged that tho holding company bill, which Is now being whipped Into shapf, should bo embodied In the trade commission bill, tho commis sion to have full power over holding com Pnles. He promised to submit a brief outlining his argument find the Mrmnrra Knotty. Mr. ITntermyer commended the purpose of the Administration measures but In sisted that they were faulty In many re rpecls. He took exceptions particularly to what Is known an the "trade relations bill," which prohibits; price cutting and other unfair practices. Ho could not see where Oils bill would do any particu lar cood and declared that moxt of the evils sought to be corrected were fully ( covered by the Sherman anti-trust act. The witness said he favored the enact ment of only one pros Ibtou of the trade relutlons, bills, that of prohibiting dis criminations In the sale of coal. "I would have this prohibition ttand but apply It generally and not attack an unfair pmctlen In on-i Industry alone h. I herein pro liled," said Mr. UtiUnnyer. On this point ulso Mr. rntrmir asru'd to lul'iult a brief amplifying his Mr. t'ntnmsor then took up the utif. ti'.'i of Interlocking illrecioratt s. - sub leet that he illscuf-ed In the report made o I'otlKI'io le 1'ujo lllOlle trUM Tht Ailiniiil'tration bill ril.iting to In terlookliiK d'recloraten applies to all cor-1 poretlous without regard to rapltallzattrn or receipts. 1 lie ultnes sugi.-ri.tfil thi adoption of an amendment limiting tho enforcement of the proposed law uccord ms to rn'elpts of corporations.

Attacks tbc Definition lllll. J Ho attacke.1 tho Administration bllt that seek to dctino the term "monopoly" ! on constitutional grounds. Section 5 of i this measure provides "that nothing con-1 Ulned In this act thall bo taken or held, to limit or In any way curtail the mean-1 Ing and effect of the provisions" of the Sherman antt-trust law. This authoriza tion, which proposed to limit review by the courts of anti-trust cases brought upon appeal, Is clearly unconstitutional, according to Untermyer. Although tho trade commission bill Is not pending before the Judiciary Com- mlttee tho witness gavn testimony con- cernlnr it to ths committee. He declared . that tho bill In its present form conwyed no essential powers not now exercise! by tho Commissioner of Corporations. He urged that the bill should bo strengthened ta . number of particulars. He believed that the commlss.lon should havo more authority over the operation of corpora tions. Mr. Untermve.r argued that Congress would make a serious blunder If It pro htblted all holding companies without re gard to their chnracter. Some holding companies wero distinctly bentflelul to business and the public at large, he said, while others were hurtful, In urging that the trado commission should have authority to distinguish be tween good and bad holding companies and to permit the good concerns to re main In business Mr. Untennjer gave an Illustration. He saldi that thero are now In operation throughout the country many municipal gnu plants financed by holdlni companies. Through these holding companies these gas plants find n ready market for the.ir bonds. He expressed doubt that these gas plants could obtain loans by worklng Independently. and added that here was at least one class of holding companies that should be permitted to continue In business.
