John P. MaeMasters, financial backer 1
of R. H. MacMastcrs & Co., bankrupt | f
Consolidated Exchange brokerage, told ' '
yesterday of his connection with the',
firm. He was a witness before David ' i
W. Kahn, attorney for the receiver, ; '
Robert F. Stephenson, at 120 Broad-i
way. It had been tea titled by Roy II.j
MacMastcrs that his stepfather. John !
F? drew $550 a week while the firm | j
was in financial difficulties and while t
he was doing no work.
The elder Mac-Masters had the same J
answer for more than a dozen impor- ?
tant questions regarding the method of
doing business, the sale of stocks and ^
the disposal of bonds pledged as collateral
by the firm's customers. It t
was: jfl
"I refuse to answer on the ground ; s
' F
' that it would t^nd to incriminate and i

nany months ago. but that this was
i gilt from his son. The cheeks by
vhich iL was paid, however, were from
jiuneh houses in Chicago and Milwaukee
und the Iranaaction, therefore,
lid not appear on the books here.
Two weeks before the firm failed,
said the witness, he had heard it van
in difficulties from his son. and also
from a committee of which AW S. Silkworth,
president of the Consolidated,
was a member. The committee called
>n him at Brettori JIal!. MacMastera
said:
"They told me that if I could produce
i couple of hundred thousand dollars in
i day or so the firm could be saved.
1'hey seemed lo think I .had the money
Wanted somewhere."
"Which of course was untrue," said
tfr. Kahn, with a rising inflection. "A'ou
tad nothing?"
' Practically nothing."
"You call this real estate and Liberty
>onds and automobiles nothing?"
"Well, 1 had no money."
Committee Had Deed to House.
After assorting emphatically thai
one of the firm's money wont for the
urchase of his house or other effects
Mat-Masters admitted the deed for bit
esldence had been turned over to a Mr

Mr. Silk worth was a member and which

Al first, the witness went on. he had
bought of "throwing in everything he

iml ho did not believe he could have
iav?d the firm, anyway. Hp continued:
"1 think in tiiat T showed great tinlelflshncss

he only big mistake I have made in tny
ife."
Creditor tsl.s (Insntlona.
Frank X. Sullivan, representing Willam
Hammond, who deposited $(1,000 in
><>nds with the first as collateral last
)ctober and who said he has not. reclvod
the bonds or anything else, asked
he questions MacMastcrs refused to anwer.
The first was:
"What was done with the bonds ol
iistomere deposited with the flnn as colit
oral? Were they sold?"
"1 refuse to answer on the ground
hat it would tend to Intimidate and
legradc me," answered MacMasteri
;llhly. Ills counsel corrected hlin, subtltuting
the word "incriminate."
Mv Qnliiv.n tlinn asked whether any
