Former President of New York
Stock Exchange Testifies
OFTEN MORAL QUESTION
Consolidated Exchange Members
Complain of Treatment Ac
corded Them.
Tqank K Sturgi" former president of
the New ork Stock Fxchange and now a
member of the board of governors ac
knowledged on the witness tand before
the Pujo Investigating committee jester
da that tl e sale of stocks on the big
board was sometimes manipulated so as
to bring about a high or a low level of
prices. Mr Sturgis insisted at first that
this manipulation was designed to make
the market seeminglv active and he was
not prepared to condemn trading of this
character When pushed to the acknowl
edgment that the real purpoe of stork
manipulation was to depress or raise
prices Mr Sturgis sa d that it was a
matter of individual responslbllltv with
members of the exchange and one for
which the exchange Itself cannot be held
accountable
When as! ed if ne Delieved that the ex
change ought to punish manipulations he
replied i es w 1 en thev are of a heinous
character Their helnousncss In bis
opinion would consist in the danger of
Insolvency
At one point in the inqulrv Mr Sturgis
replied to a question as to whether or
not he approved of stock manipulation
ou are asking me a moral question
and I am answering a tock exchange
question
ttornry 3Iakes ng;s;eatloii
In the course of vesterdav s inquiry
suggestion was made by counsel for the
committee that some method be adopted
bj the stock exchange to prevent losses
to customers through the rehypothecating
bv exchange brokers of the customer s
securities Mr I ntcrmv cr advanced for
the commltte the idea that brokers should
'IVfbllged to mark on tliclr loan en
pes containing stock on which a cm
tomcr owes moncv and the amount that
is borrowed on it. so that the bank will
not lend more than is owed to the broker
Mr Sturgis declared that this would be
Impracticable
The most of the dav was spent in ex
amlnlng Mr Sturgis and obtaining his
defense of Ivew York Stock Exchange
method" The forrnllltee founJ time
however to listen to the complaints or
Miguel h. d Aguero president of the
Consolidated Exchange and other mem
bers of that bodj against the treatment
that had I ren accorded to them bj the
governors of the big board Thev con
tended that the stock exchange author
tics wee attempting to establish a mo
nopolv Later Mr Sturgis was examined
In rega-d to the controvers between the
two exchange ind acknowledged that
If the Consolidated brokers would double
the r commission charges it probably
would be a healing balm
V thlcK of Trading
Mr I nt rimers assumption that the
witness favored certain manipulation
was baed on an answer made bj the
board of governors to one of the ques
tions sibmltted bv the Hughes Commls
slon w h ch examined the Stock Ex
change That answer read
If a member In good faith gives to a
broker an order to buj a certain amount
of stock, and the said member gives to
another broker In equallv good faith
and with no collusion between the two
parties an order to sell the ame amount
of stock and tho"e two orders are ex
ecuted upon the floor of the exchange
and commissions paid and every require
ment of the law met such a transaction
is not Illegitimate.
The witness testified that he still ad
hered to this statement
Then said Mr I ntcrmyer if a
member of the exchange gives to one
broker an order to buv 1 000 shares of
stock and an order to sell 1 OH) shares
of stock and both orders are executed
bv d fferent brokers and a commission
given jou consider that a perfectly le
gitlmate transaction
I do providing there is no knowledge
and that the orders are given in good
faith and with no collusion between the
two parties
Q But sou know that when buving
and selling orders are given In that way
they are given for the purpose of ma
n pulatlng stocks to u higher or lower
level of prices V No they are sonJe
times given purelv to make the market
active In dull times
Q But why would a broker pav com
miss ons on both orders Just to make
the market active Thftt could be his
purpose A Just that His clients may
have large interests in those stocks
Q Is It not for the purpose of either
Increasing or reducing prices A Not
necessarily it is for the purpo'e of mak
ing the market active
Q Tor the purpose of making the
market seem active er for the
ptjpose of making it seem active If
jou prefer It that way
Loaned ?2,0no,iO0 In Dnj
The da s session opened with the
testimony of J H Giesel king of the
money crowd who told of the methods
of lending call raonej on the exchange.
Mr Gricsel said he had been a member
of the exchange for twenty nine years
and had been in the business of lending
money on call even before that. He
said that the loan value of stocks ranged
from 25 per cent of the market value of
Industrial Issues to 63 per cent of the
value of first-class railway stocks
'I have loaned as high as 5 000 000 In
a day, said Mr Grlesel but the. gen
eral run of a day s business Is not more
than tlO.000.000.
Mr Grlesel gave as the biggest lenders

"Verbal firework; lingual shrapnel oralJ-

at the National Press Club
And when the dust had lifted and the
audience began to get out the wet towels
as tho principals retired to their corners
Referee John Have Hammond threw both
arms high above his head and cried
above the reverberations of the surround
ing storm
No decision
It was the nicht of the annual debate

speaking stars of the occasion The sub
ject was that world old question

elect James Cox of Ohio who was called
home several dajs -go The elubrooms
were crowded with Senator- members of
Congress club members, and guests
President Haskin started hostilities
promptly at 8.3) o clock, the opponents
having weighed In ringside some few
minutes earl cr amid frantic applause
and tobacco smoke
Senator Penrose was the first to ap
pear being followed a little later bv the
three other principals In a bods IIos

until Representative Rodenberg of nil

Magazine entitled Ode to the Printing
Pres '
Qunlinrd for Job
In introducing John Havs Hammond
as referee President Haskin stated that
Mr Hammond was particularlj well
qualified for the job The master of
this disputation is a man who has traveled
far he said He has tried all forms
of navigation from sailing on sunlit seas
private yacht to going homo In the
dark with a skate He is such a con
firmed navigator that he can t look at a
glass of Ice water without saying Ship
ahoi He should have no trouble in
keeping the contestants in a straight
course
Mr Hammond immedlatclv proceeded
to have a little fun with the disputants.
It is a complete refutation of the
charger of modern pessimists that
patriotism Is dvlng out, he said, when
we find a mining magnate like tbje
Governor elect of Iew ork the Sher
lock Holmes of high finance like Rep
resentative Stanley neglecting the op
portunities of office and the importuni
ties of offUe seekers when we find men
like Senator Penrose willing to leave
his political fortune to BUI Flynn. and
Senator Gore to leave the envied ap
plause of listening Senates to come
here at the beck and call of humanity
as I say, it la a refutation of the charge
that patriotism has died out. But even
more commendable Is the fact that so
many members of the National Press
Club who usually at this time of night.
after a strenuous days effort In be
half of humanity, retire to the seclusion
of their homes (laughter) have come
here to add by their presence encourage
