That Mulhall realised the necessity
of his proceeding carefully In testify
lug was apparent today when lie de
manded the right to have counsel at
the hearing. He declared that the
probe was "assuming the cast of a
political battle." The committee
granted the witness the right to ora-|

ously to any more lawyers appearing
In the inquiry. His objection was
brought forth by an attempt on the
part of Attorney McCarter, of the N.

"Hereafter." Reed declared. "I'm in
favor of having these attorneys sub
mit their questions In writing. We'v.
gotten along so far without lawyers
and I'm in favor of continuing that ;
way." 1
McCarter persisted In his question
