Washington, D. C., Sept. 12. For mer Representative Watson of In diana, before the house lobby commit- tee, today made -a general denial of Muma,u S general, cnarge mat ne w as one of th6 active friends of the Nation al Association -of Manufacturers in congress during many years. "At no time was I in th' employ of the National Association of Manufac- any time a lobbyist or lawyer for it," ho said. ' v' Watson did work for the National Tariff Commission association. He de clared Mulhall's charge that he used his Influence to put certain men on house committees and remove others was without foundation. "You don't need to tell the sun to shine any more than .you need to tell 'Uncle Joe' Cannon who to appoint on committees," Watson said. When ask ed to give his opinion of a man's fit ness for a committee position he gave it, but he went no further. WTatson said he never was interested in any bills the national manufacturers fav ored except the anti-injunction bills, and the proposed exemption of labor unions from the operation of the Sher man law. He said he held the same views as the association on these measures. He explained Mulhall ex pected to assist him in his campaign for governor in 1908, but that he work ed only a few months, and did not make his promises good. "There was nothing secret about my employment by the tariff association," said he, "I was not in congress and thought I had a right to that employ ment. I received $250 a week and expenses and probably retained $500." "While I was whip of the house for six years," declared Watson, pounding the table with his fist, "I was int. mately acquainted with almost every member, and never knew qt a cor rupt one in the house." Questioned about lectures for man ufacturers or allied organizations, Wat son took a shot at Secretary Bryan: "He is the John D. Rockefeller of the Chautauqua platform," he said. "He has made more money cut of it than anybody else, and made more money because be has gone about abusing other fellows for making money." Watson disclaimed knowledge of a "blacklist" of six congressmen Mul hall said he had written. He said the names were in his handwriting, but he had not the slightest idea why he had written them.
