Y., March 7.—The sen ate judiciary committee has adopted a resolution directing the chairman, Sen ator Davis of BulTulo, to notify State Superintendent of Insurance Otto Kel sey that at Its regular meeting nest Wednesday it will be prepared to bear him and his counsel and receive nay documents or depositions in connection with the pending recommendation of Governor Hughes that he be removed by the senate from the office of super intendent of insurance. At last the Albany legislature has before it the bill supimsed to embody the ideas of Governor Hughes as to the regulation of so called public utilities by state commissions to take the place of the present state board of railroad commissioners, the state commission of gas and electricity, the New York city lamrd of rapid transit railroad commissioners and the state inspector of gas meters. The hill in form ns de scribed in the statement given out by Senator Page of New York and Assem blyman Merritt of St. Lawrence was introduced by them in the two house*. In the senate It was referral after some debate to the committee on finance, and the committee voted to re port it for reference to the committee on judiciary for consideration of the important legal questions involved, with the understanding that subse quently It will return to the finance cojnmlttee. Senator Cassidy criticised ihe action of the introducers of the bill in mak ing a public statement of its provl niVUO LTUtUIC luv. IU\IIOUH u> the senate. Senator Page replied, "I have no ob jection to saying that early copies of this bill bod beeu stolen and that erro neous statements were being made In the press for certain purposes, and we found that an Incorrect alvstract of the bill was liable to be published today, so uuder those circumstances we Con sidered ourselves justified In giving to the press a correct statement in order that the public might not lie misled.” When questioned about Ills state ment on the senate floor that “early copies of this bill had been stolon” Senator Page said: “1 am reliably Informed that a taipy of the bill was in the possession of a banking bouse—I do not know which one—said to be close'to the New York city railroad Interests and that gar bled versions of parts of the bill were in circulation. Thu nature of this version, especially with reference to stock mergers and holding companies, tnude it evident that the stolen copy was one of the first drafts of the I>111. materially different from the final form.” “Didn’t you see what happened In the stock market? Didn't Brooklyn ttapld Transit drop? Wouldn't that lie explanation enough?” Early copies of the bills us introduc ed were In groat demand, and a first extra edition of 1.000 copies was or dered. The bill, which was the fruit of many conferences of the introducers with Governor Hughes and his official counsel. Ernest W. Huffeut, marks the beginning of the “intense” stage of the session and with the matter of 1 lie recommended removal of Superintend ent of Insurance Otto Kelsey is lie lteved on till sides to make Inevitable the serious delay of final adjournment of the legislature.
