I Representative Francis Burton ilarri
I sun, of New York, demanded yesterday
that the Nuvy Department tell whether
It has bnen employing foreign acoount
ants In capacities where they have hud
access to the conndeiiilul or secret pro?
cesses of manufacture In Navy Yards;
Ho introduced a privileged resolution
calling on Mr. Meyer, Secretary of the
1 Navy for full Information.
J The New Vork Democrat mude pub
! lie a complaint of he New York State
Society of Certified Public Accountants,
which says In part: "Properly to in?
stall cost systems it is necessary for
thu accountants to familiarize them?
selves with the process of manufacture,
material, labor, efficiency of various
j muohlnory and overhead expense.
Hence the secrets of the navy arc ac?
cessible to British subjects employed as
I accountants. How easy It woulel be fi>r
'secret service agents of G:oat Br?x.,,
to be employed on the staff of these
chartered accountants in their navy
yard work."
It la further said that British firms
of accountants have transferred firm
members ai il n majority of their minor
assistants to this country, supplant?
ing American accountants.
Secretary Meyer has replied In a let?
ter to a member of the House that
these accountants "did not huve access
to records, processes or types of ma?
chinery that could he eo sldered In
any way of R confidential nature."
Perley .Morse, prenlde.nl of th,, New
I York accountants, has written to Mr.
j Harrison that Secretory Meyer has not
Stated all thc facts Mr. Morse added
j that Mr. Meyer natclected to say that
? these British arcou- tants have been
installing cost systems In American
; navy yards .And that they could not-no
; th's without nr. t?ss to secret pro?
cesses and methods of manufacture.
Mr. Harrison will call up his reso?
lution in a few days and It is ex?

ate will not need to act on it.

In America by the experiment carried

not yet achieved what 1 call success.

by Attorney at Republican
He Calls Carnegie's Appearance
Before Committee Disgrace?
ful Exhibition.
Now York. January 14.?Blttorly de?
nouncing the Steel Corporation ?? one
of the greatest evils of tho times,
Louie D. Brandels, an attorney from
Boston, was roundly applauded yus
torday afternoon at a formal lunchoon
In tho Republican Club. In West
Fortieth Street. Mr. Brandola gavo
vent to his opinion of trusts In gen?
eral and tho Steol Corporation in par?
ticular In a debate on thc subject,
"Trusts and Tholr Relations to the
Business of the Country."
The debate centred around tho pro?
posed lAi. Follette bill, looking toward
an Improved statute to supplunt tho
Sherman law.
"What I propose is to make the Sher?
man law enforcement eusler," said Mr.
Brandels, "and to make the remedy
more eff> ctlve and ndequato. The de?
cisions of the courts to date amount
to this: 'Don't do It again.' All tho
millions of dollars which have boun
taken from the American people
all these years und all I lie Injury done
to competition have been practically
"For the proposed La Follette hill,
enacted as a law, to be eflectlvo It
must make tho luw more crtuln in ap?
plication. Then, the enforcement must
be easier. And to make the remedy
moro offcctlvo and .Congress must |
decldu wjrtat tho fundamental eco?
nomic and social policies shall 1
be, so that the auffurlng burl - j
noes world, which Is 111 unto j
death, shall know which way to pro?
ceed to a h ;althy condition.
"In other words, shall we abundon as
Obsolete tho long-cherished policy of
competition, and uccept In Its place thei
long detested policy of monopoly?
Tho Issue Is not, -Shall we have tin-'
restricted competition or regulated
monopoly?' It Is. -.Shall we have reg?
ulated competition or regulated mo?
nopoly ?'
.??last Preserve Competition
"Mark me, regulation la essential to!
the presorvutlon of competition r.nd to I
\lt best development. Just as regula- |
tlon Is neceseary to the preservation
and best development of liberty We
have learned, that In order to preserve
the liberty of tho many we must, In j
some respect, rcBtrtct thc liberty of!
the few.
"Unlicensed liberty leads to despot-'
l&m r.nd oligarchy. We have long curb-'
ed physlcQlly the strong In order to!
protect those physically weak But
more recently we have extended such
piohlb'.tlons to the realma of business "
Mr. Brendels then turned his atten?
tion to tho Steel Corporation, saving:
"In contrast with the enormous pro?
fits made by tho Steol Corporation.'
there stands out In contrast to this
prosperity the fnct that many of Its
employes are obliged to work twelve j
hours a day. sever, days In the week.;
These arc men of flesh and blood, the
same as wo are. At the age of forty
these men nre no longer able to slave
in their capacities.
"What kind of men do you think we.
would bA in the circumstances?
What have they to hope for? And at
the same time the?? men realize that
they nre slaving to make greater the
earnings of tho wealthiest corporation
In this country. Isn't It easily realized
that there Ih unrest there, bordering
on v'olenee?
"Specially employed agent* who
have gore nmonir these men mode tho 1
name report. They linve fill found |
them on the point of revolution and ;
of vMoncce. Whnt would we think In
the snmc conditions? Inn't it a ques?
tion that commands attention and in?
Sixty Per cent. Foreigners.
"Bear In mind that 80 per cent, of
tho men employed In tho steel mills
are foreignern, and 40 per cent, of
them are unable to speak tho English I
language. When you consider the
great talk made obont protecting
American labor. Just what do you
think of that condition? It Is the
story told by the world's greatost
trust. Yet this combination, which
Justifies ItR combination, asserts that
Its own employes must not comblno
for their mutual Interest.
Charles F. Mathewson. a corporation
attorney, next advocated the repeal
of th* Sherman law, which he charac?
terized as vicious and foolish. He ad- r
VOCSted publicity for corporations,
punishment for unfair practices, and
the reduction of tariff on trusts' pro?
ducts, when It was found that the pro- j
tection was higher than necessary to !
protect American ln.bor. He took Issue ,
with Mr. Brandelg on many Important!
points In his speech.
