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

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
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?"
"Did you swear to It?"
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

TIGER'S SLY PLAN TO
Doiiiocrats Kavor Limitation
in Senate if Comity Lines
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
The proposals upon which the discis
sions weie had provli.cd for the appoint
ment of rew ' Commissioner.", but this
was teimed "ripper" legislation, and the
committee went to the other exttemc by
Instructing the sub-committee to provide
that the present Commissioners) shall
serve out their terms.
tnator ltobcrt K. 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
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

,FIT MAN TO RAISE MONEY
At.pant, July S. 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,
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
.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
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
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.

CROP IS PROMISED
(iovernnient's Estimate. Kirst
of Veal, Exceeds Ex
jieclalions. IfECORI) YIELD OK WHEAT
A corn crop of 2. SI l.fnn.onn bushels,
cxeeedln? expectations bv more than
iJO.OOMQo bushels, Is estimated ns of
July 1 In the (loverniuent crop report
Issued jerterilay. This Is the first re
port of ti . jrar on the site of the corn
crop. The crop condition of 812 per
cent., as rompared with s.'.li last ic.tv
nt this time, was about the llgure vi
peeled by the trade. The crop was
plintcd late, but with the exception of
fear of it late frost the promise, In the
oplnnlon of the trade, is for a yield
next to rf cord breaking in sir.e.
The reeord com crop was 3,121, Tlfi.flOO
bushels its 1912. Last year the promise
at this time was for a crop of
..Stfs.Oiil'.uiW bushels, but the crop
nctually lurvcsteel was 2,'!72.Mt 1.000
The aien planted this year Is n record,
mil, 273, 000 acres, The acreage In 1912
wns ln7.0ts.n00. Last jears acreage
was 103, i.t:,nn0. The Increase In -icre-age
this jcar. It Is thought, points to
crop dlveirltlcntlon In the South, corn
In part supplanting rotten.
The tr.tal wheat crop, reported as
913,000,000 bushels. Is a record breaker.
The greatest crop actually harvested
was tin. of last eir. 591.017 mm
bmhels. The enormous size of the crop
reported tor .this year can better be
appreciated by comparison with a pre
vlous. tioiin.il jcar or better than nor
mal yea.-, such as that of 1912. which
Is excccdi,! h this j ear's cron bv more
1 than 230.OiiO.000 bushels.
The w.mti wheat crop of Cels.nofl.nnrt,
as reported by the liovernment. Is nearl
