OF COMPTROLLER inquiry Into Affairs of Officti '.ikely to Be Ordered by Congress. AUTHORITY IS ARBITRARY Right of Appointment and Kc moval in Mis Bureau Absolute. Washington, .November 6.?It Is not. unlikely that ut the next session of j Congress ail Inquiry will be directed; into tlie ulTalrs ot the office ot Coini>- | trollet- of the Currency und into t' necessity for bgisluwou amending tue national banking aet and overhauling the entire plan of administering: fulled bunks ami examining going ilnanclal institutions that have a churter from , .Hie Federal government. Tho office ot the Comptroller of the Currency was organized by an Indiana man. Hugh McCullOCh, one time Socre luty ot the Treuaury, and the first Comptroller of the Currency. Hu was it banker of experience, and the mom- j hers of his family are still In the ' banking business at Kurt Wayne. The, office is a peculiar one. The tenure ol Hu Comptroller of the Currency is] llVC :wif, while the usual term of! a public officer in the Federal service J is four years. He Is not subject to | removal except on charges or by Im- ? peuchment. Appointed nominally by the Sccretar) of the Treasury, and in theory account vole to that Cabinet Officer, the Comptroller of the Cur? rency Is really appointed directly by the President "on the recommendation of the Secretury of the Treasury." and : b< ?xerclses an authority and power ftSeu la arbitrary. Until the second election of Presi? dent Cleveland the office of thu Comp? troller of the Currency had been filled without exception by experienced bankers James H Eckels, of Illi? nois, wa? the fir*'. Comptroller of the Currency who came to that olllee with? out experience a< a banker. He was a lawyer, and when appointed admitted that lie had never read the national lianklng sot. which he was expected to administer, and liflat he had never "even had * bank account." and yet It I? generally conceded that Mr. Eck? els made one of the best comptrollers in the history of the office. He was a ijood lawyer, whose legal attainments were not unknown to President Cleve? land, who, as Governor of New York, had met Mr. Eckels as a student at the Albany Un School. Heglnnlng of Panic. In the first three months of Mr. Bck els's administration more national ? banks failed than bad become Insol? vent in all the previous history of the office. It was the beginning of the panic of 1S93. It wajj a serious trial for the hew administrator, but he earns through It with a good record. Presi? dent Cleveland explained that he had selected a lawyer for the office because tho questions arising in the office were l mainly of a legal character, and not i questions relating to national banking. The President felt that a good law- I yer was needed in the office. Since j Mr. * Eckels retired two of nUPBUCCfs ?fors have, been lawyers and ono a ' banker without any" legal experience- j The present comptroller. Lawrence O. j Murray, is a lawyer and bus had a j banking experience. The Comptroller of the Currency Is! the head of one government bureau who may make hlatappoltitmenla and removals from office regardless of the civil service law. National bank ex? aminers are not within the classlrted' eervlco. Receivers of failed bunks and! their assistants and the legal counsel1 arc all appointed by the Comptroller of the Currency without any*limitation ?s to bis discretion in the matter.

The Comptroller Of tho j Currency fixes the compensation ot re- : reivers arbitrary, and has the last word j as to the pay of ull assistants and ? eh rks to a receiver and as to the com? pensation tor legal counsel. The question has come up repeatedly In recent years In Congress as to | whether there should not bo some lim? itation on this power. Many men In Congress believe there ought to be some standard or rule that would lit- I sure some uniformity In the llxing of compensation of receivers and lawyers other than the judgment of the Comp- ! trolier of the Currency. It has been polhleu out lhat tit j power Is one which In the hands of" a i politician might be abused. Ii hits | even been charged lhat .i .'? abused and that politicians have been ; permitted to reap large fees as n.t tlonul bank receivers and as attorney* j for receivers, feos that were not war- | ranted by the services rendered. But this is not tho only ground ot complaint that has always been mada against the administration of the of flce. The complaint Is heard that It affords too great an opportunity foi personal aggrandizement. One has but to recall the historical fact that every Comptroller of the currency, with one exception, on leaving thut otfice has commanded a high salary as an officer of a national bank, regard? less of wiiethr.r or not he iiad had banking experience before be entered the office. The exception was Charles O. Dawes. who is now the president of the Cen- ' trnl Trusx Company, of Illinois. Mr. ' Dawoa always maintained that a Comp? troller of the Currency gained an In- ! sight Into the national hanking husl- : ncss ot the country through Ills ex? perience In that offic ? that was so val? uable that h- could readily command a high salary from many national bank? ing Institutions, because the Informa? tion ?s: to the- solvency and internal affairs of the banks throughout tho country was simply Invaluable to t? big national banking Institution. It was tor this reason thai Mi. Dawes always argued that he would never step from the Comptroller's offlrp Into a national bank. His Immediate successor, William! Barrett Kidgoly. resigned as Comp troller to become the president of a' natlonnl bunk in Kansas City. Thel bank had been closed by the Comptrol ? i under the authority of law and was later reorganised and Mr. Ridgely was invited to become its president and uc-; cepted. He prescribed the condition':, in his ofllciu; capacity as Comptrollei of the Currency on which tho Kunsas City Institution could resume business. Too Much I'oncr. The complaint in Congress Is that the.- exercise ot such a power as is re posed in tho Comptroller of the Cur? rency under the law might easily mak? it possible tor ah unscrupulous man to dlctuie the terms of hib employment by an Institution whose destinies wura en? tirely In his bunds as un officer ol the L'niled Stales government. James H. Kckels went from tho of llce of Comptroller of the Currency to the.-president ot the Commercial Na? tional Bank of Chicago, He v\us abso? lutely without any bunking experience ut the lime he entered lue comptrol? ler's office, t'Ul he was thought com? petent after u term in thai office to di? rect the affulr.1 of ;.n institution that hud a capital slot k of fl,v0O,oO0, Edward S.

Washington. D. C, November 6.?The employers' liability and workmen's compcnsutloii commission bill war sharply criticized by A. U. Uarrctson, president of the Order of ltailwu) Con ductors, at to-day's meeting ot the commission. .Mr. Giirreison took espe? cial exception to the compulsory fea? ture of the bill, saying that with a small maximum payment for Injury and a comparatively brief time oi pay? ment Ho- employe would desire I lie privilege of u choice. ?"If." be said, "the common law rein* cd) Is removed the average man will Invest it with a value thut it nttvot possessed." Mr. Garretson contended for an ex? tension of the years dining which compensation shall be paid tor injury, saying thut if the time were teiisoii ably extended u smaller pe'rcei^ugc would be acceptable- He advocated u llbcrul policy as a matter of sentiment as well as for other reasons. lb- did not believe that employes should be required to contribute to the disability fund, and he advocated a periodical payment for injuries rather than payment by means of lump s>i:ns. tlnis agreeing with the commis? sion. W. ?. l.cc. president of the Brother? hood of Railway Trainmen, indorsed the commission's plan, but he admit? ted that most of his associates were opposed to the compulsory system. I.Ike Mr. Garretson. he wanted a high compensation, und In that event would have no objection to the compulsory plan. He would have payments for damages made on the daily wage basis rather than on the average earnings basis. Speaking for the Edison Electric Light Conipuny, of New York. Arthur Williams said that bis company fol? lows a plan of compensation similar to that recommended by the commis? sion as a national measure, and found It to be most satisfactory. "It insures better conduct and greuter allegiance.'' he said. The com? pany pays full compensation for los; of time on account of Injury. Timothy Healy, president of the In? ternational Brotherhood of stationary firemen, expressed the hope that the work of the commission would takj in other Industries than the railroads. He said the United States Is behind all other governments In caring for its injured workers. Confidence in the courts had. he said, been entirely lost. Edward B, Phelps, who has just con? cluded an inquiry into accidents: amoinj brewery workmen, said that returns from 16,000 of them showed that 6 per , cent, are Injured In tho course of a | year, The cost of insurance of fi?-| per cent, would be less than 1 per cent., and be expressed the opinion that net cost Insuring the working class of the 1'niled States would be between 1-2 of 1 per cent, and 1 per cent. The commission's hearings will con? tinue to-morrow. NO BAD HABITS: GETS PRIZE ' Youlb Never Swore, Smoked. Chcvred, Uraitk or Kissed Girl, Ludlow, Muss.. November 6.?A fund established by Charles D.
