Mr. tlrout wtis called nt 2.30 o'clock yesterday afternoon, after (leorge Mo Aneny, I'rcsldrnt of the Hoard of Abler nwiii . .Michael J. Prummond. fnrmrrl. Commlsflutir of Charities', and Thornn P Mulry, prtsldetu of the Immigrant Industrial Savins Hank, had appealed for him as ch aracter witnesses. Ho aal.l 'that ho was nearly 51 years old and that he had lived In Hrooklyn about forty.three years, He was born in th old city of New York. He said that he was admitted to the bar In December, ISfcS, nftcr eight years In the law office of On. Stewart I.. Woodford. Ho then formed n partner uhlp with tho late Mayor William .1. Oaynor, which was dissolved when Mr. Uaynor wan elected to the bench. He was also nt one time u law partner of Presiding Justice Almet P. Jenks of the Appellntn Division. Mr. Grout sketched bis political career from the time he ran for Mayor of the old city of Hrooklyn In IS?.', to January, 1906, when he completed Ilia s?eond term ns Comptroller of the c.ty. Kor ten years he hud been president of the Hrooklyn Club, he said, and for several years was vice-president of the Montauk. He In now, and has been for ulMcen or seven teen years, a trustee of Colgate, the col lego from which ho graduated. He Is treasurer of the New York County Har Association. After these preliminaries had been dis posed of Stcp'tcn C. Haldwln, counsel for the defence, said "Mr. (Irout, I now hand to you people's exhibit No. "2 the false bank report ; did you sign that?" "I did." "Did you swear to It?" "I did." Rrllea on Ahlf' Acenrsey. Mr. Oiout said that he had telled upon the accuracy of J. T Anlley ami that he had never examined tho books of the bank to timl the Items that went to make up the totals In the reports. "It would have been physically Impos sible In the time allowed me," he naiil. He told of flrianclul lossen incurred by reason of his accepting the presidency of the bank. He had feared it. he said, for his experience ns Horough 1 'resilient had taught him that, though bu got J5.O00 a year for di voting mighty llttlo of his time to the Job, the salary had failed to offset the loss In legal fees. Clients, he found, did not go to lawyers holding public oltlce. As proof of this, he quoted figures showing the falling olT of his nnnual In come while he was president of the bank and offered to let any public accountant named by Mr, Crops-ey go over his books. In ISOfi, 1907 and lDul bis income was $45,0O(i a year or nvire. In 1909, the first yenr of his presidency. It was about 133,000, and in 1910, It was If than J22.000. On the other hand, there had been a, steady Increase since tho bank fcloacd. Indictments and Incidental ex penses notwithstanding.

Hut "lien It was all over the muggings was gone tind on Its heels came a breeze that .reached almost an unpleasant degree, of coolness. In the height of a wind s-iuall In tho afternoon a big sign was blown from tho roof ot a building nt KUth avenuu and Thirty-seventh stiiet and struck three women who worn waiting for a car.

WOULD HOLD VETO POWER Al.ltANT, Jnlv - The Democratlo delegated to the constitutional conven tion nre evlllln-r to aocott a greater limitation on the New York city repre sentation In th" Senate If the Hepuhll cans will agree to an amendment to popularize the Assembly by abolishing county lines, It uus sild to-n'.ght. New York city then would control the As rembly bccmije of the majority popula tion In (Ircitcr New York and would thin hold u veto power over tlif Senate and, for th.it matter, the (lovernor on all now legislation or nmendments. The ctui-tis npptoved the plan of iwpularlrliig tho Assembly and will keep up the fight to get n larger representa tion for New York. It was announced that the pemo-rats would op;oe any plan to still further diminish the repre sentation ot the greater city In the Hcnatc by limiting all the counties within tho city to one-half of the Senitors, whereas the present provision Is that no two counties shall have more than one-half the Senators. Mo of the Itepubllcans and even the Demccrats were Inclined to laugh at the suggestion that the )emo.'rat would make an alliance with Senator I-Vlgar T Hrackctt and h.s following of nvpubll rntis to force through an amendment to iwpularizc the Assembly. Would nlu Xeu- Vnrk Control. It was decl.iied that Mr. HracVa'.t couM not control ten Itepubllcan vp'es for this programme, as It would Involve giving New York city practical control of the Assembly. The Itepubllcans can not see the:r wr.y clear to blaze a path for compromising with Tammany. Should the convention pass the iopu '.ar.;ng ameuument. then a reappor tionment would be abso.uteiy ncessary, and SeniUT Hr.ickett would have gained his point. The Itepubllcan leaders dc'nie they have enough votes to stop any apportionment plan the Saratoga Senator may devise. The committee on public utilities has definitely voted upon prov.s'.ons to pro tect the Public Service Commission and ha appointed Chairman Iedyanl P Hale. William M. K. Olcott and Jamcu A. Vo'.ty as a sub-committee to draft this article of the Constitution. This ti:b-conimlt:ee must Incorporate provisions recognizing the two oommls-rlon-s as constitutional bodies. tlNlng their ternin at fixe years, permitting the Legljliture to regulate the salaries of the Commissioners and giving the cor porations a review In the courts on de cisions of the commission on questions of law, but not of fact Ch.ilrm.ln Hale ali a 1 counsel of tho up-State Public SoivLe Conimits'.on.

Wagner protested hefore the committee on cities, of which 1 Seth Low is chairman, that Mr. Low's plan to give New York city about as much home rule as the Philippine en Joy would not be tolerated by the city. I Job K. 1 ledges, Nathaniel A. lllsberg, ' Nathan A. Smyth nti.l Itobert S. Hln ' kcrd. representing ,i New York city 'citizens committee of ISO, favored a new , home rule proposition, which whs ilia fled by u committee comprising Will iam It. WUloox, William M. ('aider, 1M wanl M. H.iMott, Alfnd K. Marling and Nelson S. Spencer. This plan would permit the Mayor of , a city to appoint a commission to pre pare a charter, which would be sub mitted to a vote of the pe pie. After 'each city had thus sccurid a rharter the provisions could be changed only tnrougn inc i.ecisiaiure passing a gen eral law governing all cities, on sp.clal subjects, by a majority vote In each bouse, or the legislature could nirpcr seile a special provision In any specific city charter by passing a specific law by a two-thirds vote In each house. Mnte Miould Keep I'linrr. The speakers did not helieve the State should surrender Its lovereignty over, the cities, and thought their plan re served to the Htato all the authority It needed. They thought this was much preferable to the Low plan. Their plan also provides tor abolishing the classi fication of cities. Hay li. Smith of Syracuse and Mer ton H. Lewis of Kochruttr, Klrst Deputy Attorm y-ttneral, opposed any giant of self-government to the cities. i "If the cities get home rule I pre i diet that within the ytars the city of I ilclals of New York will come to Albany on bended knees and beg the I.eglsln tine, to save them fiom themselves," said Mr. Smith. He said Syracuse pmplr did not want ench new Major to tinker with their charter when he has fads of his own , he wants to put into operation, j Mr. I.twls said bo thought a certain measure of home rule was dslrable, but 'he opposed any such btoail giants as I proposed by the committee. "The State should Jealously guard the I power of the Legislature to Interfere with government of cities at any timet 1 for the protection of minorities." he I said. Would Mnl.e (tilth Hauler.

New York city Democratic legislators havo decided to ask Chairman Klon II. Mrown of the legislative committee which Is to In vestigate New York city finances for the appointment of n minority counsel. If consent Is given to such nn appoint ment It Is said that Samuel I'ntcrmyer will be selected for this work. The naming of Mr. Cntermyer would be looked upon l.i some quaretrs us his j Introduction Into the New York State I political situation, with State Mnauces net tho apparent campaign Issue, ns n prohable candidate for tho Cnlted Htates Senatorshlp to succeed O'tlor I man, whose term expires March 4, 1917. Mr. I'ntermyer's appointment as mi nority counsel of the Investigating com mittee would put him In tho public eye ns much perhaps as did his work ns counsel of the Pujo ("money trust") committee of Congress. The Democrats are said to be seeking a candidate for the Senate who possesses the power to collect some campaign money and who would know how to spend It. Itrirnril Illra am Plttr. It Is said that the Tammany Demo crats think Mr. Cntermyer would till the bill. He could make his plea before i the people of New York for home rule 'anil other mooted questlonn and could I continue attacking tho Itepubllcans for I their tn levy of Illt.OOO.rtOrt this year. The Constitutional Convention has i brought the most Inllue lal Democrats .from nil parts of the State to Albany elurlug the last few weeks, uud nat urally they have- been talking politics. ; The organization Democrats seem to I think that with President Wilson run Inltig for reelection practically on a war 'Issue they will be able to slip In an organization State ticket. While tleorgc McAneny, President of the New York Hoard of Aldermen, Is known to be the choice of the Mltchel administration for (lovernor. the up state Democrats have about decided that they will force Tammany Hall to sup 1 ort Charles K. Treman of Ithaca for (lovernor nnd will be willing to support a New York city man for the L'nited States Senate. .Mr. Onhorn'i Hopes. William Church Osborn, chairman ot the Democratic State committee, wants to be a candidate for (lovernor himself nnd falling in this might look for the nomination for Senator. In view of the manner In which Mr Osbom ran the last Democratic campaign, however. It Ir believed that his candidacy for any office, even for chairman of the State committee, will not meet with much ap proval at the hands of the organization Democrats. Under Mr. Osborn's management last fall, none of the money for election pur poses was received up State until the Sat urday afternoon before election after the banks had cloed. Hy that lime the Hepub'.ieni money had been received and distributed nnd was working. Martin II. Glynn had to go to New York to manage his own campaign there an well as In Albany, so declare Democrats who know! Mr. Olynil himself Is said to believe that he Is the most likely candidate for (lovernor on the next Democratic Stato ticket, The financial iuestlons he has raised make him the logical candidate, ho is said to have told close friends, al though before the financial controversy arose. Mr. (ilyun's friends thought he would be a candidate to succeed Mr. O'Oorman. i CHAUFFEUR PINNED UNDER BURNING AUTO I Machine Skids and Overturns Near Fort Lee Driver Not Expected to Live.. Pamsaiik.
