SENATOR HITCHCOCK TELLS WHY
HE OPPOSES GLASS-OWEN MEAS
URE SENATOR SHAFROTH SUP
PORTS IT IN HIS TALK.
TO RUSH DEBATE
UNTIL BILL IS PASSED
Washington, D. C, Nov. 25. The
struggle in the open senate over the
administration second great legisla
tive measure, the currency bill, which
i vas opened yesterday with a short
statement by Senator Owen, the ad
ministration leader was continued tit
day when Senator Hitchcock, also a
Democrat, took up the defense of tha
substitute bill agreed upon by the op
position faction in the senate hank
Senator Hitchcock pointed out the
importance of currency legislation to
the country generally. "President
Wilson in making currency reform an
administration measure, has merited
and received the praise of the whole
country" he said. "His wisdom and
bis courage in bringing this needed
reform to a practical issue is to be
highly commended. Nothing less than
presidential Influence would have
made banking and currency reform
possible for some time. I yield this
tribute to the president of the United
States the more readily because i
have frankly opposed and criticised
him when he urged hasty action which
T deemed dangerous."
The senator reviewed the differen
ces between the bill he presented and
that presented by Senator Owen, and
dwelt at length on the provision in
his draft to make the four regional
hanks publicly owned and government
controlled. He declared that the
house bill and the Owen bill were
faulty, in that they forced banks to
give up a part of their present capital
for the new system.
"To take away from these individual
banks at one sweep oneteuth of their
cash capital, was, in my opinion, a
mistake, it was to aggravate the evil
of lack of capital, which already exist
, cd and still further reduce the margin
cf safety for the depositor. And so i
have joined in recommending an
amendment by which the capital In
the regional hanks, instead of being
supplied by the banks themselves, is
to be supplied by the report of the
United States." Senator Hitchcock
said that his plan contemplated re
gional institutions at Chicago, New
Vork, St. Louis and San Francisco.
He presented the division of capital
and the business of the country
among these banks and described the
usefulness of the four institutions to
the banks and borrowers of each dis
trict. Senator Shafroth, one of the Dem
ocratic members, who helped prepare
the Owen bill, spoke after Senator
Hitchcock, supporting the administra
Senator Owen gave notice today
that he intended to keep the Senate
hard at work on the currency bill un
til it is disposed of.
"It is costing the country $5,000,000
a day to delay this currency bill," he
said. "I propose to keep the senate
in session until 6 o'clock every even
ing and to insist on consideration of
the currency bill on all the spare time
the senate may have. Senator Pitt
rnan declared he would insist on the
agreement to consider the Hetch
Hetchy bill from December 1 to De
cember fi. Democratic senators at a
conference tomorrow morning will
take up a program to hurry the bill
along and to develop views.

New York, Nov. 25. Dr. Edward
Martini, who has been studying the j
United States army's medical work in

collection was held up temporarily by

TOO MUCH TO
SUIT MR. VAIL
Chicago, 111.. Nov. 25. An "im
mense sum" in possible telephone
profits has been lost to the telephone
companies of this country, by "de
structive competition" between inde
pendent systems and the American
Telephone and Telegraph company.
The public has profited by the war
fare between the independents and
the Bell system and it was to put an
end to this situation that a $400,01)0,
000 merger of telephone companies,
was proposed by the American com
pany, backed by the .Morgan financial
This was the substance of the testi
mony here today of Ernest Bv Fisher,
secretary of the Citizen's Telephone
company, of Grand Rapids, Mich., at
the hearing in the government's anti
trust suit against the American com
pany. .Mr. Fisher said that the mer
ger proposition was put into words by
Theodore N. Vuil, president of the
American company, and that 11. P.
Davison of the firm of J. P. Morgan
and company, told the sixty or seven
ty independent telephone men pres
ent that the "house of Morgan" was
prepared to guarantee the financing
of any proposition made by the Ameri
can company. This took place at the
meeting here December 10, 1910, to
which the members of the Independ
ent Telephone association, then in
convention here were summoned by a
message that Vail was In the city and
desirous of meeting them to talk mer
ger. Mr. Fisher said that he had op
posed the merger proposition as "im
proper" and financially bad.

So said James Barry Adams, assist
ant forester of the United States,
who has been here a couple of days
looking over forestry matters.
Mr. Adams has been spending the
past two months in Arizona and New
Mexico and has three more "stops" to
make in the Alamo and Lincoln for
ests, before returning to Washington.
"I have been studying fire plans and
the results of work in fire suppres
sion during the past year," he said,
talking of his journey through the
southwest. "1 may say that we have
had a mighty fortunate aud success
"For several years we have been
j working on plans to prevent these
I great conflagrations which do so
I much damage. Every year we find
j that we are getting more cooperation
and it. is most, pleasing to note the
intelligent interest manifested on the
part of the people who live In and
use the forests. The interest leads
these people to give the alarm when
a fire breaks out and to give also aid
in fighting the flames.
"By the system of cooperative
agreements I have mentioned we are
able to get nine hundred men in the
Jemez and Pecos forests in case of
need, whereas we employ say a score
of regular forestry men. You will
see therefore that we can throw a
tremendous force in time of peril.
This is due to a better understanding
Ot the forestry department's efforts."
Hopes for Future.
Asked If this system of cooperation
all over the country will prevent any
of those shocking forest fires with
such dreadful loss of life and prop
erty as were seen in the past, Mr.
"For the future, we can hope for
the best. It would be folly to predict
that great, forest fires are at an end.
Take the case of the city fires. There
was the city of Baltimore some years
ago, supplied with one of the very
best of fire departments, as we all
know. There was an explosion, a
building caught fire and despite the
efforts of the trained fire fighters
with all the resources that a great
city could command, the very busi
ness heart of Baltimore was consum
ed, perhaps the great Baltimore fire
I lias taught, a lesson that will make
! other great tires in Baltimore impossi
ble. Time alone will tell. The same
in the case of forests. We believe
that much has been accomplished to
protect the forests from another great
conflagration. But we dare not pre
dict Immunity from flames! We must
ever be alert to use even greater pro
tective measures and seek even great
er cooperation on the part of the citi
zens of this country."
In discussing the lessons taught by
the moving pictures on fighting forest
I fires, Mr. Adams said that there are
j several reels now being shown around
the country teaching much concern-
,,,,, f1.p.filriins but that these nlc
" ' . " '
lures are not sent out uy tne depart-
Ho toM with evldent pieaa-
tire, of a reel that had been taken in
Arizona while he was there with the
forestry office In one of the scenes.
"Of course there had to be a romance
in if," he continued, "and one of
the rangers consented to act the part
of the disappointed lover. It was
very amusing. A good brush heap,
thoroughly dry, with a background of
a few pines, furnished the 'tremen
dous conflagration.' It certainly did
look immense in the films!"
