New York. Jan. SI. Wall street heart! with keenest aHght the as- nounrement that John W. Gates had asked for a hearing before the Inter Mate commerce commissles In order that he might reply to the testimony given by Messrs. Morgan. Perkins and Belmont concerning the famous Ixm Isvtlle ami Nashville deal last ram mer, it asked: "Has he the nerve to go through with the ptayT" Wall street has no tlklkng for Mr. Gales for the reason that he broke Into the game and got away with a great deal of man or. It laughed consmabty over the statements made by the witnesses aaaed and took special satisfaction In the characterisation of Mr. Gates as a "dangerous mas." ooe who eowM not be endured as the roBtrotNng pow er Is a gTat railroad system like the Louisville and Nashville. It Is small wonder that the ill as tared remarks made by Messrs. Morgan aad Perkins oc the witness stand aroused the Ire of the Western plunger and filled hint with a desire to "aw back" and give his sMe of the deal. Again the very. "Has he nerve?" Mr. Gates Is one of the glibbest talkers ever en the wtteees stand He is aa exceedingly bright man with rub Mae setf-confideac and a remarkable gift for vivid description. The two best witness before the industrial commission daring the four years It put In Inquiring Into the opera t Joe of trusts and manafactarlng conditions generally, were John W. Galea and Henry O. Havemeyer. With a singu lar facility for clear expression and a thorough acquaintance with the sub jects they were called apoa to discuss they gave a vast araoant of useful in forraatMn ana talked most eelertaln- ui sir- Mr. Gates feels that he was tricked la the 1wlsville and Nashvflte deal. although bo aad his aseoctates'cleared more uiaa ifc.vetjMW is tfce traasae- The acaafsttlOB of the control or the property by himself and Haw ley was something of an aeddoat.

A "cor ner conducted at that particular time would have caused a panic In Wall street and spread ruin all over fhe financial district The impulse to to make play was strong with both Mr. Ostei and Mr. Hawley and they were only dissuaded from doing so at the earnest soHclt&tioa of representa tives of the banking interests. The argument that finally won Mr. Gates i over was a pledge that acquiescence on i 'his part wptj'd result in his being ta ken Into full fellowship of the con servative Interests. It was a position he had been trying for through a se ries of years. He saw his opportunity and Mixed It. .t one step he could; move into the upper circles of high finance and be made one of the e!e- he thought. ... Only a. ew months afterward he was awakened from his dream by dis covering that the bankers who had agreed to think so well of blm and who had embraced him with every how of fraternal affection were call ing him remorselessly for great sums of money loaned him on call. The $5,000,000 he extracted from the street" on the Louisville and Nash ville deal rankled In their banking heart. In their haste to get the money back they went aftor him first of all. compearing blm to liquidate Immense speculative holdings. This took place soon after the be ginning of the liquidation and enabled Mr. Gates to obtain very much Bettor prices for his stocks than he eowhl have sold thctn for later oa.

The interference of tho president in the election of'n United States senator from Utah 14 an unprecedented and startling event. Probably b acted with his usual Impulsiveness and with out consideration or advice from wiser men. The question Is not complicated by the fact that Mr. Smoot, the leading republican candidate for United Statos senator from Utah, Is a high dignitary In the Mormon church. It Is said that he is not a polygamlst But all this has nothing to do with Mr. Roosevelt's Interference In the choice of a United States senator from one of the states In the Union. Ti senate atone in tne ex- rcio of Its constitutional pow er Is the Judge of the elec tion returns and qualifications of Its members. It Is not for the presl deal to say who would be a proper member for the senate from any state. The action of the president In tak ing part In the election of a senator from Utah is revolutionary. Happily It Is also without precedent No pre vious president with ostentation and offensively has thrust his advice and Infiuonce. saying nothing of his offi cial power. Into a contest Into any state for the United States senator- ship. There may have been casos whore some president preferred the election of one of his friends to a seat In the senate and where his preference was known, but If such has boon the case all the proprieties of executive con.- aoct were observed.. No president, ever before issuod a virtual proclama tion relating to the election of a mem ber of the senate from any stauv It Is reported that Mr. Smoot -re fuses to be boycotted byN the presi dent as, a senatorial, candidate. He will nd abandon his right as an American cltlien to accept an election, to me senate if he can obtain It Notwithstanding Mr. Smoot's un euphonious name, the unpopularity of the church In which he is an officer aad the president's power. It is to be hoped that he will stand fast by his political rights and that they will be vindicated by the people from whom he seeks a commission as senator Perhaps It Is better that the Issue should be met In the case of a citizen so burdened by his environments than in the case of one resting under none of those advantages. If he shall be elected and seated In the senate the rebuke to the president's revolutionary course will be more omphatlc than It would have been under other circum stances. Chicago Chronicle.

Washington, D. C, Jan. 24. Noth Ing can be said regarding the so-called Nelson bill, for aa a matter of fact that bill died a-bornln". That bill was or ' before the "Mo two days and was withdrawn by Senator Nelson, be cause Senator Quay threatened to have a vote on It, and Nelson knew that It would be defeated. That would have been a victory for the omnibus bill. During the early days of this session of congress, thore was a chance that the older senators might defeat the omnibus bll, and the readers of this paper wore fully Informed of what Sen ator Allison was doing, as well as what he Intended to do. With Sena tors AMrlch of Rhode Island, Senator Hale of Maine and Senator Proctor of Vermont, It has long been customary for the subtle Allison te steer the sen ate to whatever direction ho might please. Every effort which .parliamen tary skill could devise was resorted to and the writer believed that the omni bus bill would be defeated. Dut. aftor a ten minute confidential chat with Senator Quay.

The old senate wadws nev er ran up against such a fightinK ma chine as "Matt' Quay. Because of the farts -pointed out by Senator Jones of Arkansas, the people of Indian Territory have no chance for statehood under the so- called Nelson bill; and It would be useless to deceive the people of tho Territory. It would be useless for Washington correspondents to do ly ing at space .rates, for nothing good could come of it. Sonator Jones stal ed plainly and bluntly that Indian Ter ritory Is practically friendless before congress, and, being friendless, nectl not expect friendship from the alleged statesmen.
