Seldom are the corridors of the Senate
lobby of the Capital so well filed as they
were yesterday. The galleries were filled
with early arrivals long before the hun
dreds of of-rohlbitionists arrived.
One of the first moves of Senator
Underwood was to roll a sort of a home
eart full of signatures Araying for a
referenduq into the chamber. The
petition consisted of f4.M00 names which
Senator Gallinger. Republican, said were
not bona fide. The petition was backed
by the saloonkeeper. Mr. Gallinger as
sorted and he continued to say that the
freshness of the Ink and other marks
showed many signatures to be by the
samie hand.
The crowds which attended the ses
sion got their money's worth. Fom
the time the hearing started until the end.
the proceedings were enlivened by
Defeat of Refe
Deplored by'
Prominent Washington business and
professional men last night strongly
voiced their regret over the defeat of
the Underwood referendum amendment
by the Senate yesterday afternoon.
While there were a number to whom
the passage of the Sheppard prohibition
bill was of no concern. they neverthe
less expressed be belief that citizens of
the District ot Columbia should not be
denied the right of expressing their wish
before legislat.on of vital importance
was thrust upon them.
To many the killing of the Underwood
bill seemed to be a serious blow to the
future hopes of the right to the batIlot
by Washingtonians.
While those fighting for the referendum
felt that they suffered a setback by the
Senate's action, they were not discour
aged and it is understood that a con
certed effort will be made to gain favor
able consideration in the House.
The District of Columbia Referendum

"If there is cne thing for which I

P. T. Moran. retiring presiden' of the
Washington Chamber of Commerce, said:
'I %7ew with regret the defeat of the
suffrage amendment for the District by

Washington than most people realize. It
is not alone this prohibition measure

without their consent that makes me
complain, but 'what is in store for us In
the future.

there was great applause, and it was

resume business.
rendum Plan
"The defeat of the Underwood amend
ment that would have given, the citizens
of the District the right to vote upon
a wet or a dry District is indirectly a
blow at the cause of suffrage for Dis
trict residents.
"Personally. I am not discouraged. I
believe that the vote for the District Is
just as inevitable as the rising of the
sun. It has been delayed. It will be
delayed. But sooner or later it will
come and it will be all the more welcome
'Why am I so optimistic? Because I
know our cause is predicated upon jus
tice and with this foundation we are
building a structure that cannot fall.
It must go forward and it will soon go
forward to the point that Congress must
recognize it.
"We are living in .the Capital of the

first In the District to advocate a ref
I rendum vote, but I have changed my
mind since that time.
"The referendum in this case seems
to be only an attempt to defeat the
prohibition bill; it is a cover for the
fight being put up by the liquor men.
I walked up and down Seventh street
the other Saturday night and there I
saw saloons jammed with sweating
savages. just pouring it down. In my
opinion the saloon is an evil."
Colladay for Referendum.
Attorney Edward F. Colladay. formerly
president of the Federation of Citizens'
Associations, and now chairman of the
committee of finance aid legislation of
the federation, said:
"I am glad to hear that the Sheppard

planned to make the boy a civil on

mit him to take charge of his education,
he would send him to the Carnegie In
stitute in Pittsburgh and guarantee him
a successful career. These alluring prom
ises had such an effect in the Gump
household that the boy was sent to New
York to meet Thaw.
The boy had never before been away
from home, and it did not strike him as
suspicious that Thaw, in giving him di
rections as to meetng him in New York,

Thaw had hired a suite of rooms on the
eighteenth floor of the Hotel McAlpin,
which are described as "buffer" rooms.
The suite contains inside roomps which
are far removed from the corridor and
any noise 'in them would not likely be
heard outside.
Thaw was dissatisfied with the show
at the Century Theater or pretended to
be, and after the second act, left with
Gump. Thaw took Gump to the Mc

Thaw; according to the boy, appeared to
be excited and nervous.
"You have had a long ride on the

had better jump in the tugi right away
and have a bath."

denied the "Biltmore breakfast" charges
and said that he had never discussed
peace with Secretary to the President
Tumulty or anyone else connected with
the administration.
He told the committee with some sat
isfaction that his profits were all his own
and would not be "split."

public with any view to its effect on the
stock market. The New York broker
denied that his wedding trip to Europe
which will now be resumed-was designed
to remove any books or papers from the
Jurisdiction of the committee.
Bernard M. Baruch furnished the most
brilliant testimony of the hearing. When
he took the stand he ei~lained to the
committee that his business was that of
an "investor and speculator." with offices
at 111 Broadway. His first testimony after
his introduction to the committee was
with regard to the alleged leak and was
a complete disclaimer of having been
possessed of any information in advance
of the morning newspapers of December
-1, the day the President's peace note was
made public. Baruch said:
"I want to make a complete statement
on this general point first. I had no ad
vance information of any sort either
upon the so-called 'peace no$e' of the
President nor upon Von Bethmann-Holl
weg's speech at the convening of the
Reichstag In which he uttered Germany's
first peace offer."

Following Mr. Baruch was the corre
opondents of the Dow Jones Agency were
examined -by the committee. but nothing
to indicate any lokage advance news was
brought out.
The examination of Charles H. Sabin
earlier in the afternoon was brief. Mr.
Sabin made a statement to the committee
which had to do with information which
Mr. Sabin had given to the representa
tives of the press in New York about the
first of October. Mr. Sabin said:
"Barly in October-about the 6th. 3

office and I told them that information

stock market in my mind. In my talk
with the newspaper men I said nothing
about stocks. I did not allude to the
matter. I felt it my duty to the public
that with thin information in hand it
ought to be given publicity. I thought
that any impending movement in the
direction of peace was news that should
be in public possession."
Otto H. Kahn reiterated his state
ment made to Chairman Henry a week
ago, that he was in no wise Interested
in or Implicated in any leak or the
speculative market which followed the
leak. He said he had never sold a
share of stock short in his life.
Allen Curtis, of Curtis & ganger,
New York and Boston brokers, testified
that he was not the author of the "A
Curtis Letter." which formed the basis
of the suspicions connectin'g the names
of Baruch and Tumulty.
