INTEREST REACHES CLIMAX
In the Trial Now Near Its End.
Masterly Concluding Argu
ment of Defendants Attor
ney Heney Will Close For
the People Today.
San Francisco, June 16. With men
and women scrambling and wrang
ling for standing room in the court
room, Calhoun's explanation of the
bribery indictment against him was
practically submitted to the jury to
night, when A. A. Moore, senior coun
sel for the president of the Cnited
Railroads promised to submit his
case during the first hour of tomor
row's session.
As the five months' trial approach
es its climax, the dormant public in
terest is awakening to the point of
eager demonstration and the behavior
of the public at Carpenter's Hall to
day sorely taxed the patience of a
dozen policemen stationed at the en
trance. A still greater crush is look
ed for tomorrow when Moore con
cludes his address and the last argu
ment is begun by Heney.
Moore's argument which has 'al
ready lasted eight hours was pro
nounced tonight by adherents of both
sides a masterly review of the case.
His power of denunciation, his sar
casm and his flights into classical
reams evoked frequent murmurs of
appreciation, or laughter, from the
audience, and while the speaker open
ly confessed the weariness his hear
ers felt at the close of the long day,
ic attendance hart not - niminisneq
hen the hour of adjournment ar-
k iveoT?
Patrick Calhoun, whose wife,
' 'daughters and sons, were
present throughout Moore's address,
relaxed his solemn deportment of the
last few weeks and laughed openly at
some of the speaker's metaphors. His
friends, business associates, and the
friends of his attorneys pressed him
into the foreground but throughout
the day he never ceased to observe
the jurors and take full note of the
scene in the crowded sections behind
him.
"Suppose, for the sake of argument.
that this money was shown to have
been paid by Ford to Ruef," said
Moore when he made one of his
sudden shifts of base, "could any one
here called as a witness say that this
payment was anything more than a
surety for peace? Huef was known
to be the omnipotent potver, not
only controlling the supervisors but
also in connection with the entire
labor element of the city.
"However, this is all mere specu
lation. There is no evidence here
that Ruef ever received a dollar from
Ford for any purpose. Should we
then be forced to show what disposi
tion was inad.! of any sum enter
ing into the transactions of the Unit
ed Kail roads? We are not here to
account to Heney or any one else
.how We legitimately expend our
money."
Moore referred to the immunity
granted the nuiiervisor witnesses as
"a strange and sad story." "When
we look for a reason explaining the
strange artifreiality of this transac
tion," lie continued, "it seems that
these nn-n were, taken injo the fold
f Sprecke's under the outstretched
wings f the graft prosecution
whatever that grizxiy horror may be.
Gallagher and Nicholas were both
swearing for their- necks. There was
a kind of bastard immunity given
them a sort of bunco game since
pronounced illegal that nearly ap
proaches bribery itself."
At the time of adjournment, Moore
had atLacked every vital feature of
the prosecution's argument paying
luirtlcular attention to the alleged
discrepancies in he testimony of the
supervisors; to the claims that
Kpreckels wanted a rival street rail
way system, and to the activities of
the private agents of the prosecution.

THEEXCHANGES
REFORM
Report of Gov. Hughes,Com
mission on
Snggest That the Securities
and Commodities Markets
Purify Themselves Rather
Than That New Sweeping
Legislation Be Enacted.
t
New York, June 16. The report of
the committee appointed by tiovernor
Hughes to Investigate speculation in
securities and commodities and the or
ganizations used in dealings therein
was made public tonight. The New
York stock, the Consolidated stock, the
cotton, the produce, the coffee, the
mercantile, and the metal exclianges
and the curb market were thoroughly
investigated and recommendations look
ing to improvement of existing condi
tions were made at length by the com
mittee. The most drastic finding is
that affecting the mercantile and the
metnl exchanges, as follows:
"Under present conditions we are of
the opinion that the mercantile and
metal exchanges do actual harm to pro
ducers and consumers, and that their
charters should be repealed."
Concerning speculation in general,
the committew declares that it may be
wholly legitimate, pure gambling, or
something partaking of the qualities
of both, that in some form it is a nec
essary incident of productive opera
tions; that it tends to steady prices
and that for the merchant or manu
facturer the speculator performs a
service which, has the effect of insur
ance. In law, says tne report, - spec
ulation becomes gambling wh?n the
trading which, it Ipvolves docs not lead,
and is not. intended to lead, to the
actual passing from hand to hand of
the property that Is dealt in.
'The rules of all the exchanges for
bid gambling as defined by this opin
ion; but they make so easy a technical
delivery of the property contracted for
that the practical effect of much spec
ulation. In point of form legitimate, is
not greatly (different, from that of
gambling."
The committee makes no present
ment against, short selling but declares
the tendency of such selling is to
steady th6 prices. It is recommended
that the minimum margin should be
20 per cent and strong disapproval js
expressed of branch brokerage offices
which supply liquor and report to other
means to induce speculation.
The New York Exchange.
Taking up the New York stock ex-
Change, the volume of transactions
thereon is referred to as making it
probably the most important financial
Institution in the world, its "enormous
business affecting' the financial and
credit interests of the country in so
large a measure that its proper regu
lation is a matter of transcendant im
portance." Patrons of the exchange
are divided by the committee into five
groups, namely, investors who iay for
w hat they buy: manipulators of prices;
floor traders; outside operators having
capital and experience and "inexperi
enced persons who act on interested
advice, 'tips,' advertisements in news
papers, or circulars sent by mail, or
take fivers' In absolute ignorance ano
blind confidence in their luck. Almost
without exception they eventually
lose." A to the character of the trans
actions the committee declares it is
unquestionable that only a small part
of them is of investment character; a
substantial part may be characterized
as virtually gambling. Yet we are un
able to see how the state could distin
guish by law between proper and im-
oroner transactions, since the forms
and mechanisms used are identical.
Rigid statutes directed aguir.st the lat
ter would seriously interfere with the
former. The experience of Germany
with similar legislation is illuminating.
But the exchange, with the plenary
power over members and their opera
tions, could provide correctives, as we
shall, shov.'.
Purchasing securities on margin Is
as legitimate a transaction as a pur
chase of any other property in which
part payment is deferred. We there
fore see no reason whatsoever for rec
ommencing the radical changes sug
gested, that margin trading be pro
hibited. "Insofar as losses are due to insuf
ficient margins, they should be mate
rially reduced if the customary per
centage of margins were increased. In
preference to recommending legisla
tion, we urge upon all brokers to dis
courage speculation upon small mar
gins and upon the exchange to use Its
influence, and If necessary, its power,
to prevent members from soliciting and
generally accepting business on a less
margin than 20 per cent."
Pyramiding, that is the use of paper
profits as margin for further commit
ments, should be discouraged, says the
committee. In this cennection It Is
suggested that if brokers and the banks
would make it a rule to value securi
ties for the purpose ef margin or col
lateral, not at the current price for
the moment, but at the average price
of say, tbe previous two or three
months (provided that such average
price were not higher than the price
of the moment) the dangers of pyra
miding would be largely prevented.
"We have been strongly urged to
advise the ;rohibition or limitation of
short sales," says the report, "not only
on the theory that it is wrong to agree
to sell what one does not possess, but
that puch sales reduce the market
price of the securities Involved. We
do not think that It is wrong to agree
to sell something th-it one does not
now possess, but expects to obtain
later.' Short sellers endeavor to se
lect times when prices seem , high in
order to sell and times when prices
seem low in order to buy, their action
in , both cases serving to lessen ad
vances and diminish declines of price.
In other words, short selling tends to
proVtuee steadiness in prices, which Is
an advantage to the community. No
other means of restraining unwarrant
ed marking up and down of prices has
been suggested to us." The committee
here calls attention to the New York
law of 1858 repealing the act of 1812
and legalizing short sales.
Manipulation of prices Is divided by
the committee into two classes: First,
that which is resorted to for the pur
pose of making a market for issues of
new securities, and second, that which
is designed to serve merely specula
tive purposes in the endeavor to make
a profit as the result of fluctuations
which have been planned in advance.
The report then says:
"The first kind of manipulation has
certain advantages, and when not ac
companied by 'matched orders' Is un
objectionable per se. It is essential to
the organization and carrying through
of important enterprises, such as large
corporations, that the organizers
should be able to raise the money nec
essary to complete them. This can be
done only by the sale of securities.
"The second kind of manipulation
mentioned is undoubtedly open to se
rloqs criticism. It has for its object
either the" creation of high prices for
particular stocks, in order to draw in
the public as buyers and to unload
upon them the holdings of the oper
ators,' or to depress the prices and in
duce the public to sell. There have
been instances of gross and unjustifi
able manipulation of securities, as in
the case of American Ice stock. While
we have been unable to discover any
complete remedy short of abolishing
the stock exchange itself, we are con
vinced that the exchange can prevent
the worst forms of this evil bv exer
cising its Influence and authority over
the members to prevail t them. When
continued manipulation exists it is
patent to experienced observers."
Severe condemnation of "matched
orders" is expressed. "We refer," the
report says, "to that class of transac
tions engineered by some manipulator,
who sends a number of orders simul
taneously to different brokers, some to
buy and some to sell. Since tney are
legal and binding, we find a difficulty
In suggesting a legislative remedy. But
where the activities of two or more
brokers in certain securities become so
extreme as to indicate manipulation
rather than genuine transactions, the
oficers of the exchange would be re
miss unless they exercised their influ
ence and authority upon such members
in a way to cause them to desist from
such suspicious and undesirable activ
ity. "The subject of corners in the stock
market has engaged our attention. The
stock exchange might properly adopt a
rule providing that the governors shall
have power to decide when a corner
exists and to fix a settlement price,
so as to relieve innocent persons from
the Injury or ruin which may result
therefrom. The mere existence of snch
a rule would tend to prevent corners."
The board of governors of the stock
exchange should improve present con
ditions with regard" to failures of
brokers according to the committee.
It is suggested that the books of mem
bers of the exchange should be sub
ject to periodic examination under
rules to be prescribed by the exchange.
It is declared further that when a
broker sells a customer's securities for
his own benefit, he should be guilty
of larceny and a statute to that effect
is recommended. It is set forth also
that rules should be made to prevent
Sealing for any clerk or subordinate
employe of a bank or other moneyed
corporation. More stringent require
ments for the listing of securities on
the stock exchange are advocated,
among them that the exchange should
exact a statement showing how much
of the stoyk of the company has been
issued for each and also shifcving what
commission has been paid to the pro
moters. The unlisted departmept, ex
cept for temporary, issues, should be
abolished, says the committee. It Is
In the unlisted department that stocks
of certain companies which have not
supplied all information Miesired by the
exchange are traded in. The passage
of a statute is advocated providing that
in case any purchase or sale by a bro
ker was not actual bona fide, the cus
tomer shall recover three times the
amount of the loss he sustained there
by. Preservation of the sheets of the
exchange clearing house for six years
is recommended. It is also recom
mended that trading on the excliange
be done on the basis of a reasonably
small unit, say 100 shares of stock, and
that a bidder for more than 100 shares
be req'uired to accept offers In the 100
shares units. This, it is held, would
tend, to prevent matched orders.
The committee does not favor the
Incorporation of the stock exchange,
holding that "under existing conditions,
being a voluntary organization, it has
almost unlimited power over the con
duct of its members, and It can subject
them to instant' discipline for wrong
doing, which it could not exercise In a
summary manner If it were an incor
porated body. This committee, in re
fraining from advising the Incorpora
tion of the exchange, does so in the
expectation that the exchange will In
the future take full advantage of the
powers conferred upon It by Its volun
tary organization, and will be active
In preventing wrongdoing such as has
occurred in the past.Then we believe
that there will be no serious criticism
of the fact that it is not Incorporated.
If, however, wrongdoing recurs, and It
should appear to the public at large

FDR TAXING
CORPORATIONS
President's Message Receiv
ed in the Senate
E TAX
Mr. Gore Wants an Early Re
port by the Finance Com
mittee on Latter Feature
of the Message A Threat
by Mr. Bailey.
Washington, June 16. Hecomr"iid
ing a two per cent tax onthe net in
come of corporations, and the' mdop
tlon of an amendment to the constitu
tion providing an income tax without
an apportion nu-nt among the several
states. President Taft today sent to
congress a message embodying his
views on the subject. The president
spoke of the apparent Inability of
congress to agree to an inheritance
tax, and as regards an income tax
he refers to the decision of the su
preme court in the case of Pollock vs.
the Farmers Loan and Trust com
pany, in which the court held the tax
to be unconstitutional unless appor
tioned according to population.
"It is," says the president, "undoubt
edly a power which the government
ought to have. It might be Indis
pensable to the nation's life in a great
crisis."
The amendment suggested provides
for the imposition on all corp-fations
and Joint stock companies for profit,
except national banks (otherwise tax
ed) savings banks and building and
loan associations, of an excise tax of
two per cent on the net income of said
corporations.
The president points out that an
other merit to the tax on corporations
is the federal supervision which will
give the government, the stockholders
and the public a knowledge of the real
business transactd.
ITS RECEPTION IN THE SENATE
Washington. June 16. The mes
sage of President Taft to the senate
today recommending the Incorpora
tion of a provision in the tariff bill
for the taxation of the earnings of
corporations and the adoption of a
resolution looking to an amendment
of the constitution to permit the
levying of an income tax was regard
ed by senators of such Importance
as to place in the shade all questions
pertaining strictly to the tariff
schedules.
The message was received early In
the afternoon and was referred to the
committee on finance. Senator Root
occupied the chair when one of the
president's secretaries appeared with
the message, but it was not presented
until Senator Burton, who was speak
ing had concluded his remarks. A
full senate was present and the docu
ment was given the most careful at
tention. Mr. Gore attempted to have the
committee instructed to report on the
income tax feature of the message
by next Friday when, under a general
agreement, the income tax question is
again to be taken up for considera
tion. His motion was, however, vot
ed down and for the first time In
many weeks the division was strictly
along party lines.
During the informal discussion of
the reference of the message, Mr.
lialley gave notice that he would de
mand that provision be made for a
graduation of any income tax' that
might be provided, and he intimated
that much time would be necessary
to get through a provision whicH did
not carry that qualification. The
senate adopted the finante conlmlt
tee's recommendations regarding the
admission of Philippine products, but
not until after two or three amend
ments had been voted down.
Mr. Foster of Louisiana opposed
the free admission of any Philippine
sugar. Mr. Aldrich presented the fi
nance committee's substitute for the
house zinc schedule and it received
a major portion of the attention of
the senate during the afternoon. The
committee amendment which was
adopted, places a duty of 50 cents a
ton on zinc ore containing not more
than 30 per cent of zinc and with
graduated duties up to $4 a ton on
ore containing over 55 per cent zinc.
The senate also agreed to the
amendments placing a duty ol 1 1-3
cents a pound on zinc in blocks or
pigs and zinc dust, 1 3-4 cents a
pound on zinc in sheets, and 2 cents
on zinc sheets plated or coated, .and
one cent a pound on old worn out
zinc metal. This action concluded
the consideration of the zinc provi
sion and the metal schedules. The
committee suggestions for changes in
the sil kschedule were also adopted.
CABINET'S EARNEST CONSIDER
ATION Washington, June 16. For more
than two hours today President Taft
consulted with the six lawyers of his
cabinet regarding the message he
sent to congress on the subject of a
tax upon undistributed net earnings
of corporations and the proposition to
submit to the states the proposal for
an amendment to the constitution to
make clear the right of the govern
ment to levy an income tax.
THE PROGRESSIVES UNCHANGED
.Washington, June IS. The fight for
an income tax will 1e continued. Five
progressive republicans. Senators
Borah, Brlstow, Cummins, Lafollette,
and Clapp, conferred tonight to de
termine what their attitude is to be in
relation to the income tax amendment
to the tariff bill In the face of Presi
dent Taft's special message to con
gress today favoring the submission of
the question to the states for a con
stitutional amendment and the enact
ment of a la wtaxing the net earnings
of corporations.
They decided the president's plan is
not Inconsistent with their demands,
for the adoption of the Income tax
amendment to the tariff bill, and that
both may be adopted in harmony.
They assume that the president' plan,
endorsed by leading republicans on the
finance committee, is destined to
"chloroform" the income tax amend
ment, but nevertheless they announce
that they will continue to fight for its
adoption.

Springfield, III., June 16 In a de

' In the workings of the law, objec

It is believed this will necessitate

QUITE UNABLE
TO NAVIGATE
Testimony Concerning Habits
of Mrs. Gould Continued
THE GOSSIP OF SERVANTS
Under the Influence of Liquor
They Said Unutterable
Things Fell From Tongue
of the Plaintiff in the Sep
aration Suit. .
New York, June 16. Howard Gould
did not go on the stand today to testify
against his wife, Katherine Clemmons
Gould, whose suit for separation he is
opposing. Instead there was a con
tinuation of the servants' gossip, ac
counts by menials of their former mis
tress' eccentricities; humiliating de
tails, as sworn to on the stand, of
Mrs. Gould's alleged fondness for al
coholic beverages and her manner at
such times when what the witnesses
said was influence of liquor brought
from her lips remarks ill suited to a
woman's tongue.
It was but a reiteration in some re
spects an amplification of yester
day's testimony, the basis of which
was that at various times at Castle
Gould she had been intoxicated and
had abused the servants and . given
arbitrary and unreasonable commands
and had used rather severe language
In altercations with her husband.
An occasion when she would have
