The lln.il vote of the committee In re

form of a motion to adjourn without ac

It Is understood that this action amounted
to an Indefinite postponement of con. dera

Prior to taking this action a motion was
made h Senator Heed to postHUie action
on Mr. Worburg's name until such time
as he should appear before the committee

was .met by a motion to table offered by
one of the Administration Senators Only

The committee agreed that unanimous

TVarbiiric Told of Firm's Connection
With Tube Company.
WASHiNotoN, July 9. The correspond
ence which passed between Senator Pom
erenc and Paul M. Warburg concerning
the regional riserve banking umtroveisy!
dUcIoscs some of the grounds for Mr.
Warburg's unwIUIngneBS to appear leforc
the Senate Hanking Committee Here
tofore It has appeared only In fragmen
tary form.
Senator Pomerenc, writing under the
date of June H, submitted various ques
tions which he asserts wcrei propounded
to him by a member of the committee
whose name in not disclosed.
One of the questions asked whether
Kuhn. Iocb A Co. made loans to W.
(J. McAdoo, now Secretary of the Treas
ury, nnd his huslness associates. Mr.
Warburg replied that no such loans
were made,
Information was asked also regard
ing Mr Wurburg's views of the "reor
ganization" of the Frisco, thn flock Island
and the New Haven companies.
Of the three properties but one Is
bankrupt and has not been icorgaiilzed.
Neither the nock Island nor the New
Hsven road Is Insolvent and neither hns
been leorganlzed N'elther Mr. Wnrhurg
nor his Arm was concerned In their
Among tho questions sre some nf nn
exceedingly personal character. For In
stance, the unnamed Senator Insists In a
postscript on knowing Mr, Warburg's po
lltlcal nlllllntlons, the amount of his cam
paign contributions nnd those of his firm.
This explains Mr, Wnrhurg's reference to
Ills Intention to vote for President Wil
son, although he had Kepuhllcnn leanings,
Mr. Warburg's leply, In Us Incomplete
form, gave rise to adverse comment, It
now develops that It wus not a voluntary
statement but In reply to a request for
Information. Tt Is felt that many of the
questions submitted to Mr, Warburg were
not proposed hy Interests friendly to the
Administration. particularly questions
bearing upon Secretary McAdoo's business
Inasmuch as It would he almost Im
possible for Mr, Warburg to submit to a
general quizzing conducted along tho lines
nf Senator Pomerene's letter without mak
ing trouble either for himself or hankers
associated with the financing of under
takings of which Mr, Warburg could havn
no personal knowledge. H Is suggested
that some of the questions may have been
framed hy Interests unfriendly to Kuhn,

Senator Pomerene's letter to Mr. War-bu-g,
dated .lime 24. says'
"A member of the sub.coniiiilltee f
the Committee on Hanking ami Cunency
of the Senate, having under consideration
your nomination, writes me under d,ite of
June 22 hs follows
"'I would llko to know when Mr. War-

(loutd. Schlff and Ktlllman; his views of

dation and financing of the steel trust
and similar concerns?'
"And under date of June 2.1 as follows :
"'In addition to the Information I asked
on yesterday In regard to Mr, Warburg.
I would like to know how much money

"The committee will appreciate any In

Mr. Warburg replied as follows .
"Referring to your letter of the Stth
Instant, submitting to me sopie questions

rency of the Senate. 1 beg to advlsn you

datlon and financing of the steel trust

"Answer. In order to give my views
upon the methods of financing railroads 1
and Industrial enterprises It would be j
necessary for me to write a lengthy es
say. While, broadly speaking, one might
say that In financing railroads and In
dustrial enterprises care must be taken
that fixed charges do not exceed n safe
proportion of the net earnings , that the
obligations be well secured by actual ,
value and that due provision be made for I
the future growth of the properties, any .
such statement. In order to be of value, j
would have to be reviewed from a dlf- (
ferent angle In each Individual class of ,
case", Railroads In thickly settled sec .
tlons of the country are different propo-
sltlons from railroads In undeveloped ter
ritories; Industries In staple or well known '
products require a different point of view
from Industries manufacturing untried ,
products or nrtlcles of luxury. A coal ,
mine and an automobile factory cannot l
be covered by one rule. Moreover, dif
ferent methods apply In a nation's life
during a period of rapid development
than at a later stage of settled condl
tlons. "The Federal reserve bank tem
cannot deal In nor grant advances upon
IiomiIh and slocks of corporations ; ootid
nnd Issuing houses cannot become mem- i
hers of the system, and I fall to sec the
pertlnencv of the question ntiit no not so

general fashion. 1 might add. however,
that my general views lire fairly well

economists and that t have publicly

of this question as early as 1908 In nn ,

the murder that It seems Impossible,
It her story Is true, that he could have
seen and heard nil that he testified to.
Crnmr litilttrll Wrnk.
It Is barely possible that District At
torney Smith has evidence In reserve
which he Intends to produce nt a stra
tegic moment, but as the case stands
nobody In Kreeport believes that Mrs.
Carman could lw. Indicted, much less
convicted. Take, for example, the com
ment of ex-Judge Wallace of Freeport:
"Nn testimony connecting Mrs. Car
man with the killing of Mrs. Bailey has
been oltcred that approaches the dig
nity of evidence. Any .ludgL would be
compelled to direct a Jury to nciiult
the defendant."
District Attorney Smith, disappointed
nnd chagrined by the crumbling of the
fnundatlons of hi case, tried to-day to so bearing nnd calm denials, tho ma
secure a postponement of the hearing ! ot Persons here felt that she was
,,,.,, ... . . guilty. Since her arrest nnd the dlscov

Smith wanted a week's delay, but ,
George M. Levy, counsel for Mrs. Car
man, wouldn't consemt. Mr. Levy's po
sition wns that the county authorities
after erght days Investigation put Mrs.
Carman In Jail changed with murder,
nnd thnt It would be unjust to dilly
dally any further.
n ,lnr Would l.nuuh.
"If they've got nny renl evidence,"
said Levy to a reporter for The Sr.v,
"'let them bring It Into court. They lire
afraid. They know I can tear to pieces
every story they have set up. They've
got nothing In the world hut a suspi
cion of motive- the circumstance of a
Jealous woman who used a dictograph
to overhear he-r husband's conversations
with women patients. They can't con
nect cither Dr. Carman or Mrs. Carman
with Mrs. Halley nnd they can't pro
duce, the weapon. The Oram! Jury
would Inugh at such a ense."
The truth Is, the prosecution Is con
centrating upon a rather frightened col
ored woman, who hns suddenly become
of enormous Importance to District At
torney Smith nnd William .1. Hums.
etr CiliiniHU Cine.
District Attorney Smith said his oincp
wns working also on new clues, one of
which -was to trace a little slip of yellow-
paper which Mrs. Carman, according tn
Gaston llolusomuilt. mnnager of the
rtnnr.il Acnnsili. Cnmtvinv. showed him
, ,., i.iJ,ni .
when she llrst came to his ortlce.
This slip of paper, according to Hols-
snninilt. contained two Initials mxl thn
surnames of some person and nn uddress
In West Thirty-second street, Man
hnttnn, ttnlssonault could nut recall
the nnme or the number eif the address
except thnt it wns "a lnrgo numlicr,"
When this u-iis mentioned to the
District Attorney and I, wns explained,
thnt "a largo number" might Indicate
the address to bo near the river on
Thirty-second street, nnd that that wns
the district of the Hudson Duster nnd
(Jophcr gangs, Mr. Smith said:
"Yes, and I tell yon that this Is
one nf the most Important duos we nro
working; on."
Cella Coleman, Mrs, Cnrman's cook,
hns suddenly become the Important fig
ure In tho case. Prosecutor's men and
nurnn's men havo ding-donged nt her
until tho simple minded creature doesn't
know whether nhe, Is whlto or black.
They have elemnnded of her that she
correct her testimony Riven at tlm In
eiuest, .tin Id's Testimony I nipurlnnl.
Ill the long run It inny be that Mrs,
Carman's liberty swings upon Cella
Coleman's testimony, At the Inquest,
suddenly thrust Into a situation that
miuln her, as she said, "nil trembly and
wishy-washy," nnd menaced by tho eyei
nf the District Attorney, Cella never
theless stuck to It thnt sho wns nt
work in the kitchen from supper time
until the murder- nn hour nr more--and
thnt Mrs, Cnrmnn did not pass

Doubt was cast upon the testimony of Elwood T. Barries that he saw a
woman on the Carman fawn immediately after the shooting by the statement
of Miss Flora Raynor that Bardes called on her at 8:30 o'clock, fifteen minutes
after the murder.
This, coupled with the weakening of Oolder, the farm hand, caused a
change In sentiment in Freeport toward Mrs. Carman.
Assiatant District Attorney Weeks admitted that tho State's case was
weak and that Mrs. Carman might be freed on Monday.
District Attorney Smith asks postponement of Coroner's hearing on July
:j, but Mrs. Carman's attorney objects.

at the suggestion of District Attorney
Smith, took no action and Cell.t had her

by the prosecutor and by detectives. Will
iam J. Hums hlmclf came down from
New York this evening nnd took up tho
questioning where his men had left off.
Hut there Is no Indication yet that the
colored woman Is weakening.
Mr. Hums Is not pleaded witli the action
of the authorities in precipitately arrest

necessary to hurry the detective work.
This fact slipped out to-day, although
Mr. Hums would not criticise the .course
taken by the District Attorney nnd the
Coroner. He holds that Mrs. Carman Is
the person against whom the Investiga
tion must be directed, but he Mould have
preferred to let her have liberty a few
days more.

Mrs. Carman's behalf and Is hustling to by this time thnt they haven't a. thing

Mr. Levy has an Important asset In the
public opinion of the community. This
has undergone a curious change. A few
davs ago. desnltn Mrs. Carman's Imnres-
queer slants hnve Injected themselves Into
the case, feeling has changed materials.
If Mrs. Carman's release could be secured
by a ball bond It would not be difficult to,
get security for 150,000 or more.
The way Freeport looks nt the most ex: i
traordlnary murder ense of yenrs Is
simple. .Mil) be Mrs. Carman shot Mrs. '
Halley, but where's the evidence? '
Levy, persistently digging, happened to
hear that Flora Raynor. a girl who lives
lu Helen street, Freeport, nbout one mile
from the Cnrmnn house, was with Hardes
on the night of tho murder. He ques-
Honed Miss Raynor nnd Immediately In
duced her to make nn affidavit. Her story
Is Interesting.
She says that she had an nppolntmcnt
with Hardes on the night of June 3n, nnd
that he came to her house at 8:30 P. M-,
or a little before.
Now, Hardes says that he was In front
of the Carman house, a mile away, at the
time of the murder, which has been fixed
approximately at K.1.1 P. M., and that be
waited long enough after he heard a shot

that Hardes Is a credible witness nnd
he doesn't see how Miss Rnynor's af

William J. nurns said yesterday before
leaving for Freeport to confer with Dis
trict Attorney Smith that It would nuke
no difference in his Investigation If Mrs.
Carman were releaed from custody.
"As 1 have ssld, there Is no mystery
In this case. The evidence points to Mrs.
Carman. It's simply a matter of getting
more evidence. Cella Column has not
told the truth when she testified that she
did not see Mrs. Carman In the kitchen
at or near t'n time Mrs. Halley was
shut. I shall li" able tu prove this.
"Several persons In Freeport are going
to get In trouble, If they aren't careful.
They have been Interfering In this cast
and seklng to crento situations."
