Washington, Oct. 14. Senator La
Follette of Wisconsin will appear on
next Tuesday before the subcommit
tee which is investigating the alleged
treasonable utterances in his St.
Paul speech. It is probable the meet
ing will wilt be open to the public.
Mr. LaFollette asked himself 'that
he be allowed to be present. He
witihes to examine witnesses and to
submit testimony of his own.
Following the letter the Wisconsin
man wrote to the subcommittee, Sen
ator Pomerene, the chairman, replied
that the body did not consider it had
authority either to question the right
of the senator to make the St. Paul
speech nor to inquire into the motives
of those who have crit'Xsed M La-
olletto. Senator Pomerene said in
his communications:
"Referring to the request contain
ed in your letter, the subcommittee
begs to inform you that it does not
concede that its powers extend to an
inquiry into your right to make the
speech delivered by you in St. Paul,
that queytion being reserved by the
full committee for its consideration,
nor does it believe itself authorized
to inquire into the motives or animus
of those making attacks upon you.
"The subcommittee desires, how
ever, to afford you an opportunity to
be heard and to inform the committee
with reference to the accuracy of
various statments contain in the
speech referred to and to that end
you are invited to attend at the en
suing session of the committee in the
oapitol next Tuesday."
Work of the subcommittee at.the
hearing will be confined strictly to
vhe alleged utterances in St. Paul.
No other matters will be considered
The subcommittee is using as a basis
the petition of the Minnesota Public
Safety Commission which declared
Mr. LaFollette'b speech treasonable
and asked that he be expelled from
his sat in the Senate, None of the
