I have lent sometimes $20,000,000 or

"Why, money would not be attracted

and that for years he had traded on

Forced To Close Out
"On Mav 10. 1910. the governors of
the Now York stock exchange passed
a rule prohibiting any stock exchange
broker from having any dealings with
the Consolidated." said Mr. Hein.
Here Mr. Untermyer read into tne
record the rule.
Mr. Heln said that his brokers on the
stock exchange forced him to close out
his account, despite an effort to fight
the rule In the courts. He said he
finally wrote to his stock exchange
brokers setting forth that he was no
longer connected with the Consolidated
exchange and that he would become
nominally an "Inactive member."
Some time later he was forced to
close out his account, and all efforts to
obtain another, he salfi. were futile
"Are there many securities of lnter
states Industries -which can be bought
and sold onlyi on the New York stock
exchange"" asekd Mr. Untermyer.
"Yes. If a Consolidated member owns
such stock or bonds, then he can not
sell them In anv market""

The opinion of the New York state

was put in the record.
How Business Is Hampered.
"Under the present circumstances,"
testified Miguel de Aguero, president

"business on our exchange Is badly
hampered. To transfer properly stock
sold on our exchange, these corpora

to he acconmanled by a notorial cer
tificate proving the identity of the

are unfair toward their own stock
holders because they try to force them
to sell their stock In one market only.
A man's guarantee is not good while
he Is on our exchange, but if he
buys a seat on the New York Stock
exchange he is immediately good, al

brokerage house, dated May 24, 1903.
The writers declined to do any fur

them by Obers.
Mr. Obers said that when the"curb"

to desert his business on the curb be
cause the rules adopted "at the in

from dealing in anv other exchange
