VASSAR HEARS AND CHEERS THE BARON TAFT REFUSES TO PARDON BANKERS President Declines to Exercise Any Executive Clemency for Morso or Walsh. RICH MEN MUST OBEY LAW Distinction between Honest Busi ness and Dishonest Breaches of Trusts Must Be Em phasized. Washington, May 21. President Taft to-night denied the npplle.UI'ins for the pardon of Charles W. Morse of Now York nnd John It. Vanish of Chicago, tho two most prominent bankers ever sent to pris on under the nntlonal banking laws. Not only did he refuse to pardon either Morso or Walsh, but he also declined to exercWo any other sort of executive clemency In the.e cases or to shorten tho sentences Imposed upon the two men. However, ho granted Morse leave to renew his peti tion for pardon after January 1, 1013. Ill denying tho pardons the President declared that the nntlonal banking laws or any other laws must be upheld when they affect the rieli man even more than when they affect the poor. The record In the Walsh case, the President said In a long opinion, "shows moral turpi ttule of thnt Iroddlous nno dangerous kind, to punish which the national bank ing Inws were especially enacted." In considering the case of Morse, tho Presl dent Mild that "from a consideration of the facts In each case, I have no doubt that Morse should havo recel'-ed a heavi er sentencn than Walsh. Indeed tho meth ods taken by Morse tend to show that more keenly than Walsh did he realize the evil of what he was doing." MAD KFSH FOB WEALTH. In his opinion In the Walsh case the 'President protests against the failure to discriminate between legitimate busi ness nnd Improper gain. "The truth Is lie says, "thnt In tho mnd rush for wealth In the Inst few decades tho lines between profit from legltlmnte business and Im proper gain from undue use of trust con trol over other neoplo's property and money has sometimes been dimmed, and the Interest of society requires that when ever opportunity offers, those charged with the enforcement of the law should emphasize the distinction between honest business and dishonest breaches of trust. The President's denial of the pardon applications of Morse and Walsh does not menu thnt they must stay In prison until the end of their terms. Wnlsh began a sentence of five years In the Leavenworth penitentiary In January, 1010, and under tho federal parole lnw Is eligible for parole next September. Morse tegnn his lfi-yenr-term nt Atlanta In January, 1010, also. He Is eligible for parole In 1013. Both Morse and Walsh made strong efforts to have tho President exe- jlse clemency. Mrs. Morso got up a monster petition which to signed by scores of members of Congress and other prominent persons and former Senator Hnle ot Maine did much In her behalf. The pleas of 111 health and reimbursement of all depositors In the Morse and Walsh banks were made in both cases. PAPEBS BEAD WITH CABE Both Applications wero scanned nt the department of Justice by Attorney General Wlckcrsham and his assistants and both were read with care by tho President himself. His action to-night wns In nerord with the recommendation of Mr. Wlckersham. In denying the Walsh application, the President Fnld in part: "John R. Walsh was convicted of mis application of tho funds of the Chicago National bank while Its president. "His pardon Is asked: First, becau,-e his violations of laws were technical am' did not Involve moral turpitude and se cured him no financial benedt; secotv because all tho depositors of his bank were paid through the fact of his private fortune; third, because ho was. In doln what ho did, attempting to upbuild In dustries of substantial benefit to tl i country; fourth, tn-cnuse he Is nn old man, In 111 health, not likely to live long, nn,i ono who has borne a good reputation an.l lived a life of simplicity nnd not of relf InJnlgence. "Tho facts) nro that Walsh owned a Inrgn Interest In three bnnks. He ab solutely controlled them. Ho used them to furnish tho money for the develop ment of Hovornl railroads, limestone quarries, conl mines nnd other enter prises. I'slng his control of these banks, ho took their funds nnd Invest od them In enterprises of the chnrne. tor mentioned, elthor by direct pur-i-hnsn of tho bonds, which he hnd enus oil to bo Issued, or by lending from tho funds of tho bnnk money on dummy notes, scoured by such bonds ns eol lnteral. "He risked nearly tho whole funds of thn three h.iuks In these enterprises, and be cause of these Investnu tits, tho banks failed. The allied bank.s of Chicago in or der to prevent a paid,- took over the U'nlsh bank holdings anil Walsh's proji ertle.s nnd paid the depositors In full; hut In tho liquidation the allied banks will sustain n substantial losn. "The application for lurdon must ho denied. In the flis-t plneo, tho record shows nionil turpitude of thnt Insidious nnd dangerous kind, to punish which tho nntlonal banking laws wero especially onnctnd. A bank officer who uses Biich funds (n promote enterprises In which ho bus n private Interest, nnd without thn knowledge and consent of tho sharehold ers for whom he Is a trustee, Involves tho u'hnk capital of tho bank In unauthorized spenilntlon, from which ho lu to derive profit If successful, Is guilty ot u fraudu lent breach of trust, In guilty of moral 'urplturte, and must bo punished. No ref erence to usual business method, no mig KCHtlon "f Breat bi.Hnesa enterprises no ctcuso of building up worn. Industrie, and no subsequent attempt o make goo, the looses which hi- have bro ght , i t nersons who trusted him, J can.loM'ovr tJWfcctbat Bucn rt.man Ib taking other people's money for his own use. Wtilsh hnd acquired great power In tho control of three banks, liu reuponsl hlllttcH wero commenmrrnto. His guilt la in proportion to the trust and con fidence extended to him. Of course, ho did not Intend to steal tho mosey of ills depositors or Btockholdcrs, but ho Is not less guilty on this account. IIo abused their trust nnd confldenco and Imperiled tho money of those who trusted him In enterprises of most speculative character. StONIlBS A HE MISINFORMED. M.my Influential and prominent per sons havo petitioned for his pardon. i ncy do not fully appreciate, It seemi to me, the high Importnnco to Foclety thnt such criminal breaches of trust ns this be severely punished. Such brencho. sometimes escape punishment hecnuse tho misuse, of the funds result In a pro fit In such enses tho dishonest or reck less bank, officer takes tho profit nnd tho bnnk Is made whole nnd no one Is the wiser. Then the officer comes to regard himself ns n shrewd mnnipulator with legitimate business lines. The truth Is, that In the mad rush for wealth In the last fow decades, the lines between profit from legltlmnte business and im proper gnln from undue use of trust control over other people's property and money una sometimes been dimmed, nnd the Interest of society requires thnt when ever opportunity offers, those charged with the enforcement of the Inw should cmphnslzo the distinction between hon est .luslncss nnd dishonest breaches of trust. Walsh Is "3 years of ago. Ills health I,. not good, but I do not think from tho cMoence tint his condition la nlarmliif. or requires his r-Mea.se before the time when his caso may bo brought before the parole authorities. APPEAL TO SYMPATHY. "There aro circumstances wbleli lmvn ncen emphasized by those who have rep resented Walsh In the application for paruon tnat appeal to one's svmmiliv If tho case Is Judged with reference to waisn nlone. But It must be indued with reference to the right of society to havo the law enforced nnd crime punished no matter how intluentlnl tho convicted per son or how many friends bis pitiable condition may lead to speak In his behalf. Tho opportunity to commit snob crimes Is only afforded to men who havo enjojod nigh positions in society and have secured tho trust nnd frlendshln of m.mv i:wry caso ot nils kind, therefore, must pre-ent somo sum consideration as those .v.,.,, ,um lt luP exeeuiive. on no- pea! for clemency, should yield to them It would defeat the object of the law and present a demoralizing difference twtwocn me puntshmnt meted out to the onllnnrv criminal whose circumstances have nnturally led him Into crime nnd one whose position in society should have made for him strongest restraint against violation or tho law." In the Morse case, Mr. Taft said: 'Charles W. Morse was convicted of misapplication of funds of tho National Bank of Xnrtl. America and of making raise entries m tho books of tho bank and Its reports to the comptroller of the currency. MOB.SE Jt-.ST AS GL'ILTY. Although his conviction technically wns on fnlse entries, there Is no doubt as to what the ovldenco showed gen erally, to wit, that Morso was engaged in largo private transactions In which te maintenance of tho price of cer tain stock In tho market was of capi tal Importance to him, and he procured control of this particular bank anil other banks for the purpose ot doing the speclllc thing mentioned, which wns ostontlnl to tho .success of his speculations. Tho result of his opera tions was s-overo losses to tho bank which forced It into liquidation. "Morte exhibited the same fraudu lent and criminal disregard of tho tiust Imposed upon him In the exer cise of the control over the bnnk as W.ilih did. Indeed, the methods tak en by Morse tend to show thnt more keenly than Walsh did ho realize the owl of what he was doing and resort to more substle methodB to accomplish and conceal them," ne of the chief arguments, said tho I 'resident, Is that Morso made good the losses Inflicted on the bank. But the evi dence, docs not show this to be true nnd ven If It were, "It could not chango tho necessity for his lawful punishment for the crime he committed" The President says ho nas no doubt, from a consideration of the facts In each ( ,-iee, that Morso should have received a heavier sentenco than Walsh. "Whether 15 years Is too great a sen tence, I do not now propose to decide. It will depend somewhat upon Morses' future conduct In prison. This application, therefore, is now denied ns premature, but may be renewed nt somo subsequent date. "The number of prominent nnd Influen tial members of society who have asked for clemency In Morse's case Is quite as rreat as In thnt of Walsh. In my denial cf the application In each of these cases, I have no deidro to minimize tho weight of the opinion and prayer In favor of clemency of the petitioners, but for tho same reason that I have given nbovo for differing from them In the vanish case, 1 must differ with them In Mbrse's."

Mine of Facts to Be Opened, More Shocking1 and Appalling Than Any Yet Revealed Is tho Assertion Made. Washington, May 21. Bevelatlons con cerning the election of Senator Ivorlmer of Illinois may be expected ns tho re sult of a second Investigation Into the bribery charges against I.orimer If tho predictions made by Senator I.a Folletto In tho delivery to-day on the third Install ment of his argument In support of his involution of Inquiry nro realized. Mr. I.a Folletto prophesied that more than twice tho $IfJO heretofore alleged to have been used would be found to have Iren spent In Borlmer's behalf. He snld President Tnft's name had been used In Ixirlmer's behalf, and relternted that I.orimer hnd. hnd personnl cognizance of the use of money In his behalf. ' There Is a mine of facts whlcn I ven ture to predict will bo opened up and which will bo more shocking and appall ing than any that has yet been revealed." be declared, Mr. La Folletto quoted from the tes timony given by Edward Hities, n Chl cngo lumber man. before the I.orimer Investigation committee of the Illinois Legislature, regarding Mr. Hlncs's In terviews with V. S. Senators Aldrlch and Penrose, In which Mr. Hlnes said that Mr. Aldrlch repeatedly had told him that President Taft was especially concerned In Mr. I.onimer's behalf. NO l'BOOF OF TAFT'S AID. "Thero Is no proof that tho Presi dent was interfering," said Mr. La Fol letto, "but I think that thero was a scheme to put Lorimer through, nnd It was believed that the use of the Pres ident's namo would bo potential. There Is no doubt that his nnme wns used In a telegram nnd no doubt that it was used behind locked doors nnd drawn screens. It helped to Influence members who could not bo ronched otherwise." Discussing Hlncs's nctlvlty In the Lori mer campaign, which wns accounted for on tho ground that Lorimer would favor a duty on lumber. Mr. La Folletto said that during tho lnt Lorimer Investiga tion by the Senate, Bines was much In evidence about tho cnpltol nt Washing ton, "He sought senntors nt every turn and was brazen nnd Impudent In his work." he said. "How he was received In nil cases I did not know, but I do know thnt In some cases he was re linked." Then evidently referring to the election of Senator Stephenson of Wisconsin, though not mentioning his name, Mr. La Follottc snld: ALLFDES TO LOIUMEB JFDGE. 'In nnothei senatorial campaign In Wisconsin his (Hlncs's) henchmen were notorlou.stv active for the successful candidate, and his principal agent has not dared to remain within the borders of the State." Mr. La Folletto quoted testimony taken by tho Illinois Legislature to support his contention that Lorimer had known of the use of monoy In his Interest, nnd he hoped that the Senate would "find the men back of this infamy no matter how high up they may be in the financial woi Id." Be referred to the Interference by Judge Petit of Chlcngo In tho Investigation of the nccounts of Kdwnrd Tilden. Ho chnrcterlzed Petit as a "Lorimer Judge." Mr. La Follette will close Ills speech to morrow. REMEMBERS THE HATBOX. Conductor TcIIh of t'ukuotiii Woman Who I.fft llnliy In Die. Rutland, May 21. Aside from the fact that Conductor Paul Fish of the local street railway company remembers carry ing from Rutland to and from Castleton Sunday night a woman having a hatliox In her hand, Slate's Attorney B. L. Stafford and the local sheriff department have absolutely no clue as to the Identity of the person who Is responsible for tho death of tho week-old Infant whose body wns found In a tightly shut hatlxix near the Charles Grlswnld place east of Cnstloton Monday afternoon. This morning Mr. Stafford was In con sultation with Conductor Fish and this afternoon Sheriff E. C Fish anil four deputies were gathered nt the olllce. Every possible effort will be mudo to run down the Inhuman person who left tho helpless bntiy to smother In full exposure to Monday's terrible heat. The caso Is a particularly difficult one to work out. Vital stntlstlcs will not aid materially In unravelling the mystery as there Is In this county, like every other community, a certnln few doctors who will not co-operate with tho State authorities by reporting births which take place under peculiar circumstances. A margin of 10 days Is given for reporting births before any negligence on the part of the physi cian can be charged. Conductor Fish states that tho woman In question boarded the 9: to car out of Rutland Sunday night. She got off near the Gilswold plnco In Castleton nnd when tho same car was making tho return trip from Fair Havn sho ngnln got on to It nt a point some distance nenrer Rutland, cnrrylng no box. Mr. Stafford was In communication by telephone with Dr, B. II, Ktono of the State laboratory of hygiene nt Burlington to-dny.

The Injunction was a surprlso anil a Jolt to the commKs'on ajid widened the breach between tin- two commerce tri bunals. This breach has been growing steadily slnco the r-nnunorce court was c rented. While the comml.-Miri has not stated what action It will takn In tho case, It 1h tho consensus of opinion thnt the order granting the Injunction will be appealed to the Supreme Court of tho United States. The members of the com mission, It Is said, fe-il 'specially keenly yesterday's Injunction, slnco It Is looked upon as an assumption of unwarranted authority and was handed down with out stating any reasons for tho ruling. A COTJRT OF REVIEW. The commerce court wus generally understood to havo been created to act over the Interstate commerce commlFsIon In tho capacity of a court of review on points of law nnd confiscation alono. This Injunction means that the courr holds thn right to review all evldenco nnd facts ns collected by the commis sion and thnt It may at any time set aside a decision of the commission on .a iwilnt of evidence as well ns exception of law. The prlnrlplo established means that the commerce court may nt nny time decide upon the reasonableness of a rate In contradiction to the rulings of the oommls-flVm and may accept or refuse to accept the decisions of the couits In nil matters pertaining to rate making. A logical procedure from this bnsls would give the court complete power over the commission In ull Its functions. Pit EFERENTIALS TO TIU'ST. Tho Injunction was granted on the contention of the Federal Refining com ply, which held that all lines hand ling tho trust's products give It prefer ential treatment In and around New York, Many years ago Henry Havemeyer, head of the trust, secured an arrange ment with tho rallroids In New York by whlrh they allowed his company two cents per hundred pounds for cartnge and different amounts for lighterage of sugar from thu trust's refineries ncrosn tho Hudson to the railroad terminals. Tho competitors held that these amounts wero vastly In excess of tho cost of snrvlco und amounted to gigantic rebates. Tho Federal Rollning company, which Is located nt Yonkers, could never get these reductions from tho railroads because, the railroads snld, they were outsldo of tho lighterage limits of New York harbor.
