HINT OF CLEARING 7 NEW HAYEN MEN 14 CAN'T UNDERSTAND WOOD, SAYS BANKS Man Who Took Over Commis sioner's Business Balks Thompson Committee. MRS. J. J.

BULK OF REASON CITED Question, naked by Judge Hunt tn the United Htatea District Court yentenlay led attorneys for some of the former dl rector of the New Haven, on trial on charge of conspiracy to hope that their client mlthl be relieved of further trial. There was no official Intimation to that effect, but the questions of the Judge In the arguments for dismissal of the In dictment or a direction of a verdict of acquittal cave rise to the hope. Seven of the eleven former directors on trial were mentioned particularly by (hose who havs been listening to the nine weeks of trie! and the two daye of , argument. mey are no tie n w ran. Charles M. Pratt. D. Nevton Barney, Frederick P. Brewster, Henry K. Me tiers. Jamea 8. Hemingway end A. Beaton Robertson. The Seven Never Active. It was pointed out privately that the names of these men have appeared only as directors of the New Haven for vary ing terms. The minutes have shown that they were present at tlms. but It wee not shown that they ever conducted uny negotiations or ever participated .. i i . . i., u hiialiiM. tnr ili- mm. pany. Thst would leave only four men for further coi.ehderatlon-WHIIam L,.,i r.i, f.., idvarrl Rd-I ward D. Ro'bblne and Charles K. Brooker of the eleven on trial. The foregoing was simply rumor with out definite basis as nil of yesterday was taken up with the arguments of Goldtbwalte H. Dorr, Thomas Thacher and Rovall Victor that all the defend ants should be relieved of further trial , and the Government case dismissed. Messrs. Dorr and Thacher finished yesterday the arguments they hsd begun on Mondsv. Mr. Victor's argument sup plemented the general argument en air. Thacher ana uecisrea irmi me ameers- ants must be sent out of court by the application of the "rule of reason deci sion" of the United States Supreme Court. it devoted Itself mainly to a discussion of the application of the crlm lnal charge of conspiracy to railroad men. One point made by Mr. Victor was that the Sherman untl -trust act was not held app Icable to railroads until the trans-Mltssourl case in is??, there fore the men could not be accused of conspiring before that date. He quoted law as establishing thai while Ignorunce of the law excuses no one for the com mission of an act. yet It has been held that Ignorance of the law Is a valid defence to a charge of conspiracy so long ss the act was not performed. eproved by Sapreme Coert. What appeared to be Mr. Victor's Strongest point was the contention that the Cnlted States Supreme Court had Officially approved the New Haver In a decision of Justice, now Chief Juntlce, White In 1904. In that decision the Justice mentioned the New York. New Haven and Hartford, the Boston and Maine und the New York Central as three railroads which had grown up by consolidation, haying that this was known and that It was accepted. The strict application of the Govern ment's theory In this ease, the lawyer declared, would make every railroad offi cial of the United State- a criminal. Itallroads can grow into reat systems only by consolidation, he said. It was not only the New Haven that war- on trial, but the entire railroad enterprise of the United States. The argument will continue to-ilny.

J, The death r.t Tburbsr sweet of Chicago wan not on to ha.lr.g at the hands i.r Virginia Military institute; cadets, under 11 ih- stsios of the sovsrnlng iiouni icmIss An ftRsstlon ' f lb spine Is given MK ths GRAND JURY TO HEAR HIM William C. nan, of the Northwestern Equipment Company, an electrical .up- plv concern that took over the business or the Northwestern Construction Com pany when Robert Colgate Wood became n Public Service Commissioner, testified before the Thompson legislative com mittee yesterday that In whatever rela tions he had had with John T. Cade of the Federal Signal Company he was animated by the sole desire to enhance the pronts of William C. Banks. Cade had reported to President Ren- ,h.w of ,h( Ped,raJ company that he m m Imnpe-)lon ,hrouKn ,n,kinr with Banks that Banks was lookiiw for a re tainer to gain the favor of Commissioner Wood for the Federal company when the Fourth avenue subaay contract was. under discussion. Banks said yesterday that he hadn't had the least MM of net ting anything else out or it exnpt busi ness for his equipment company, which he thought the Federal would patronize If it were able to land the Fourth ave nue signal system Job through his efforts. Banks was on the stand most of the session yesterday, and at the end of the filling he received from the committee he was still sntll ng and willing to talk on anything that the committee didn't want to know about. In his analysis of the character of Commissioner Wood, Banks, who has known the Commissioner for fifteen years, said he had never been able to fathom him. Calls Wood "Mysterloas, "I can't make besd or tall out of the man." he said. "I've been around with him, but 1 can't understand him. Me is a most mysteilous man. 1 guess you noticed (hat when he was on the stnnd hwx g, B ,imtt, and , things ,ha1 i cant fathom, You get uny of his rrleiMN flaw ii lier anil triev 11 tell von the same thing. They don't know any I more ubout lilm than I do." ( K:inks admitted that he lwd been he ,arn, tlia, tn. Commissioner didn't j angry at the Commissioner ever since let him In on the I1.R00 he got for help-i Inp the Union Snitch ftnrt Signal Com pany to a contrail. "Then why should vou try to cover him up"" asked Senator Thompson "I'm not trying to oovef him up. Why should 1? What would there be In that for nieT' "It Is Just possible that 5 ou may be Involved In some of the things that he is Involved In." "Oh, don't worry about me. I'll take care of myself ull right." Hanks said that he did talk with Wood while tils Fourth avenue contract was pending, hut that all he did was to let the Commissioner know that Cadi had promised til m "a piece of change" If the contract went to the Federal com pany. The "piece of change," he said, didn't refer to any specific amount of Mousy, but to the business that might come to his concern. Says H. It. T. Wanted Devlrr, Banks said that Wood told him the reason the contract for Installing a sig nal syste m In the Fourth avenue sub way went to IbS General Hallway Sig nal Company was that the B. R. T. minted the kind of speed control appa ratus which the General company prom ised to develop. He SaM he was much surprised when the Federal company failed to land the Job. "Io you think thai QbroinlSSlOMr Wood ought to lc In Jail?" was asked. "Well," replied Hanks. "I don't like to see anybody go to Jail, ini If he Is guilty of a crlm" let him go." "Ho you think he is guilty?" "That's up to the IMstrlct Attorney to prove. That Is not Within my province lu sity." But do vou think from what you know thai he ought to lit In Jail?" "If he did what Johnson says he did I don't think a bit In Jail would do him any harm." When lie found h could get nothing of value from Hanks, Senator Thompson told him to go home and talk things over with his wife and to he hack again to-day to be questioned. John T. Cade was called to Hie stand, but was Immediately excused until this morning when he refused to sign a waiver of Immunity. Both Hanks and Cade have been subpesnaed by tne Grand Jury for to-day. UPHOLDS ONE METER ORDER. Service Honrd'a 4'ounsel aye Its wtend Is HIsTht. George S. Coleman, chief counsel for the Public Service Commission, in an opinion vesterduy said that the New York Edison foinpany must obey the Commission's order of October K, which direct, that after January 1. lillti, the company shun determine the 'mount of current supplied to customers by one meter instulhel on the premises of the customer. Mr. Oolsmsn sfss asked for an opinion us to tlte effect of the order on contracts under which thu company obligated Itself to furnish und maln-t- ln more than one meter on Its custo mers' premises. Mr. Coleman uJotes a number of cases OOVSring ths point and concludes that If ii public SSrVlSS corporation had the same power as a private corporation to make binding contracts a a mple means of evading s statute prohibiting discrim ination, would he ufforded. A company buying made Ions term contracts with a few favored customers under a pate established perhaps for that very pur pose could then cancel tho rate. His opinion Is that us soon as the commla slon'l order becomes effective It will abrogate all outstanding contracts made by the New York Kdlson Company that tire In any way Inconsistent with the provisions of the order.

IN EFFECT ON NEW YEAR Ths Board of Health aimed a blow nt the high cost of living ye.terday In the annual amendments to the Sanitary Code by passing an ordinance permitting the slaughter of horse, for food. The meas ure goes Into effect with the new year and revokes the provision forbid ding the killing of horse, as meat which haa been In effect since New York has been a city. "In ndooting this resolution," .aid Health Commissioner Kmerson, "the board wished to open the way for an Inexpensive and healthy food supply. Hereafter old horses, Instead of being sold for their 'bones, can be fattened up ind disposed o' for meat. While the department does not precisely recom mend the eating of horse meat, we can see no harm In !. use. "Tho horse never has tuberculosis and practically never communicatee a malig nant disease to human being.. Conse ouenllv the strict regulation of horse nieiit would not be necessary, as with , cow, sneep or poultry, excepi m.i nu horse meat should be so labelled. There 1. no medical reason to prevent equine flesh fnim being edible. "To show the relative value of such footl abroad I need only cite the report of Dr. Ackerman, I veterinarian of the; department, who Inspected the horne abhatoirs of Parl. Ixmdon and Brussels Just before the outlin-ak of the war. He found that In Brussels horse meat from Kngland was bringing higher prices than Argentine beef." Another marked departure tnado In the code w . the incorporation of a regit- latlon providing that all schools In the city, except those maintained by the rtosrd of Fdu'-atlon. shall operate only under a permit from the Board of Health. Dr. Emerson explained that this legislation, to take effect September 1 next, was intended primirlly to im- prove the "eheodrlm." or Jewish rellg- Ions Schools, on the Bssl Side. "Many of tin SS are In the basements of tenements." he said, "and are at- tended by the children after they have finished the day s work In the public BBhSOlS, I M-:ted several of 'bese schools, end saw the teachers spitting :""1 smoking In the classrooms, and the common drinking cup and towel much deuce Tin: pupil, sat on stool. without backs."

Should be relieved .f the unnecessary hindrance of getting a permit each year.
