Session Ends the Jurisdic tional Fight Over Investigation Washington July 11.—Martin M. Mulhall, who claims to have been the active lobbyist for the National As sociation of Manufacturers for many years, began his testimony tonight be fore the Senate lobby investigating committee. Mulhall, whose alleged correspondence has brought into the limelight names of scores of men prominent in political life in the last ten years, was on the stand about two hours. The committee made only a faint ’impression on the huge pile of letters, but enough was read into the record to show Mulhall’s alleged relations ■with Marshall Cushing, former secre tary of the manufacturers’ associa tion. These relations, the testimony showed, began in 1903, and that Mul hall was first employed to work against an eight-hour bill favored by the late Senator McComas of Mary land. Mulhall admitted frankly that he had worked to defeat the McComas forces in Maryland, while he was still posing as the senator’s friend. He said he received many checks from Cush ing for small amounts which were to be used in paying the expenses of a labor organization in Baltimore which was opposed to McComas. Helped Settle Strike Mulhall told also of efforts to help set tle the anthracite coal strike in tho Pcnu eylvanla fields in 19u:l arid spoke of at tempts to arrange conferences between thr then Governor Stone and labor Ha l t:.-. Just after the committee adjoutwed a sergeant at arms of the House appeared and served a subpoena on Mulhall. direct ing him to appear before the special lobby committee of the House at 9 o'clock to morrow morning. The Senate committee bad adjourned until 10 o'clock, but when Senator Over man heard of ttie action of the House there was a hurried conference and Mul hali told to show up before the Senate committed at nine. "Thcrc're making themselves ridiculous," ■aid Chairman Overman, referring to tlie activities of tlie new House committee. Tlie effort to get Mulhall to the House side was tlie final move of the day by Chairman Garrett and Ills associates, who wanted to put him on the stand either before the Senate committee or at odd moments when tlie senators were not listening to his testimony. Before tlie matter is settled the ques tion of Jurisdiction may take a more seri ous turn, although tlie senators who have "tlie papers' ’ and haw Mulhall under ■ ubpoena feel they can keep him as long as they want. Washington, July 11.—After an all day effort to settle the question of Whether tlie Senate lobby Investigators or I he new House committee should stage the inquiry into the confession of Col. M. M. Mulhall, diplomatic ne gotiations were broken off tonight and tlie Senate committee called Colonel Mulhall at a night session. Senator Overman announced earlier that no session would be held tonight hut Hie meeting w'as decided on afier Chair man Garrett of the House committee had armed sergeants at arms with sub poenas and sent them scurrying about Washington after Colonel Mulhall and J. H. McMtchaels, who was charged by Mulhall as having acted as paid in formant of the National Association of Manufacturers' lobbyists while em ployed on the floor of the House. This terminated a day of jurisdic tional conflict. The Garrett commit tee had asked Senator Overman yes terday for copies at least of tlie Mul hall correspondence. Tlie Senate com mittee voted not to surrender them. After the House committee met today it recessed lo allow Representatives Garrett, Russell and Nolan to go to tlie Senate committee and renew the quest for tlie "papers."

Asbert, who has been transfer red to the main prison, continues to receive friends and hbndreds of letters and telegrams from political adherents pledging support. Much interest attaches to the attitude of the liberals, still undertermined. President Monocal has expressed his intention to proceed at all hazards with the prosecution of the accused in vin dication of law and order. It is reported that the President’s attitude has been strengthened by the receipt of a note from. Washington ex pressing the sympathy of the United States government for the loss of such a valued official as General Riva and , giving assurance of approval of his courses in upholding the law. Public excitement in Havana has ap parently subsided, but cavalry continues to patrol the streets and the police prohibit assembling of groups in all public places.

After some discussion they agreed on the proposed salary of $10, 000 a year for eacli member of the board. The bill was amended, however, to provide that the four members of the board to be appointed by the President should lie distributed geographically throughout the country, and to require that they should devote all of their time to their duties on the board. The conference considered the terms on which state banks may become mem bers of the regional reserve banks and the division of earnings. The provision limiting shareholders to an annual cum ulative dividend of 6 per cent was ap proved. It was agreed that all of the net earnings of the reserve banks above tlie 5 per cent emulative dividends to the stockholders, should be paid to the United States government, tlie 20 per cent surplus of each bank remaining the property of tlie government, so as to put the stock holding banks at all ! times on an equal basis.

'■Opon the report of the autopsy, performed by Dr. P. J.'Higgins, and which he snid disclosed the pos sible motive, Herhert Johns, 24 years old. who had been with the girl, was arrested, but was later exon erated of the charge.

July 11.——Herbert Johns wit m held without hail on the charge of murdering his 1 N-year-oId sweetheart, \llce t'rlspell, at a hearing tonight before \ldermuii Frank H. I) row n. Although Johns was exonorated by the coroner's jury In connection with the. death of the girl whose body was found floating in Harvey’s Dis trict AMorhey ' fcMgoiow decVreri was enough evidence to make out a prima facie case aginst the prisoner, At the hearing l)r. P. J. Higgins, who performed the autopsy, said that he had not examined the stomach or lungs and that it was possible for the girl to have been dead before her body reached the water. Wllkesbarrc. Pa., July 11.—District Attorney Bigelow announced today he would oppose the pleas of Herbert Johns, who was exonerated last night by a coroninl jury with connection in the death of Alice Crispell, whose body was found in Harveys Bake last Mon day. Johns will have a bearing before a justice of the peace late today. The district attorney, who is not'sat isfied with the decision of the coronial body, claims the case is beyond the Jurisdiction of a peace magistrate and the only way Johns can be released is through habeas corpus proceedings. The district attorney has applied to the county court for permission to dis inter the body of the girl for further examination, but later withdrew the ap plication. Physicians were of the opin ion decomposition had gone too far to make a second autopsy possible. Authorities Not Satisfied County police authorities said today they were not satisfied with the verdict of the coroner’s exonerating Herbert Johns of connection with the death of Afice Crispin, whose body was found in Herveys Lake Monday. Tlie verdict stated: “Evidence in this case fails to show any motive for crime on the part of Herbert Johns and w‘‘ feel certain that lie had no part in the death of Miss Crispoil.” Representatives of tlie district attor ney's office said that while there was nothing in the testimony to base charges that Johns was guilty, yet the coroner's jury should have rendered a verdict simply of “death by drowning" without accusing or exonerating any one. Additional Evidence County Detective McKelvy says that he did not think that three deputy cor oners should have made up half of the coronial Jury. He said for this reason he will introduce additional evidence tonight when Jbhns will be given a hearing before a justice of the peace. Little that was new developed at the inquest except that members of the f*rls pell family testified that tht* girl had been wayward and that on this account she had had trouble with her father. The father iti ills testimony admitted pointing an unloaded weapon at his daughter.
