Co Belped Bita HITS BOUTFLL A RAP . Waterbury, May .Congress-man-at-Large George L. Lilley, whose resolution and charges in connection with the so-called submarine scandal resulted last week In a severe scor ing of him by the Boutell investigat ing committee, which charged him with wilful falsehood, bad faith and complicity in the Lake Torpedo Boat Co, to-day gave. out a statement on the subject. It includes a copy of a letter which alleges that two weeks before the report denouncing Lilley in scathing terms Mr Boutell ex pressed his admiratipn for Lilley and endeavored to effect an agreement whereby the matter should be com promised. The statement la as fol lows: To the People of the State of Con necticut: The report of the submarine in vestigation committee presented to the house of representatives on the 20th Inst, deals so largely with my personal conduct, and touches so closely my personal honor, that I feel my duty to myself and to the public, that has honored me with generous expressions of its confi dence, Justifies, if it does not de mand, a statement of my :de of the case. I do not intend to enter into the question of how many of the charges made against the Electric Boat Co were proved by the investi gation, or how much would proba bly have been proved if the inves tigation had been conducted along lines proposed by myself. In this statement I restrict myself to the assault on my personal repu tation contained in the finding of the committee that I introduced my reso lution and made my charges in bad faith; that I acted in concert with the Lake Torpedo Boat Co and con cealed the fact from the committee; that I caused groundless charges to be made against a member of the house of representatives; tnat I act ed In bad faith in stating to the com mittee that I made no charges against members of the house before the committee on rules, and that I knew that my statement to the effect that contracts for submarine boats award ed to the Electric Boat Co hud yield ed an excessive profit to' the contrac tor was false. I desire first of all to express ray gratitude to my colleagues In the house of representatives,' who, with out any defense or explanation on my part, refused to believe me capa ble of the offenses charged In the report. .. I should be ungrateful If 1 failed to express also my obligation to the newspaper press and to the people of the state of Connecticut who have with such unanimity re fused to believe me guilty of the of fenses for which I have been ar raigned, and I believe that I owe an added recognition of the chivalrous conduct of that part of the press that, notwithstanding political dif ferences, has been not less 'hearty than my political friends !u accord ing me Its confidence. I desire altto to make acknowledgment to ..on H. S. Boutell, chairman of the commit tee making the report, for his tribute to my sincerity expressed by him to my physician as will appear In the following letter: 1424 K Street. N. W.. Washington, April 26, 'OS. Mrs George L. Lilley, Washington. D. C. Dear Madame: As requested by you I called upon the Hon H. 8. Boutell In The High lands for the purtose of informing him of Mr LI 1 ley's illness and the nec essity for his leaving the city. Mr Boutell received nie in his private of fice and Introduced me to Mr Howard, a member of the Investigating com mittee. I stated Mr L! I ley's condition and Mr Boutell branched off Into a discussion of the entire matter until Mr Howard brought the conversation back to the original request, to',. I me to submit a written request to the committee, and said he was sure It would be granted. Both gentlemen spoke In th high est terms of George I Lilley person ally and said they felt certain be was being used by someone, .without hU knowledge, but. Mr Boutell added, "It has reached the point In thi In vestigation that either the Investigat ing committee or Mr Lilley has to re cede, and. of course. It is ImpoAMibl for the committee to do so." Mr Boutell then proposed to nie that I talk over the matter with Mr LI : lev. state to him the high opinion of the committee of him personally, and to tell him that absolutely not h 'ox had been proven and that 1 get Mr Lilley to withdraw the charges In which case everything would end right there. ' Mr Boutell said ho was at S;eker Cannon's home for dinner and that t could 'phone or reach him there. As yon know. I then left The Highland with Mr Howard and proceeded to the Willard hotel. I told Mr Lll'y Mr Boutell s request aad he replied that h would rather d'e lhaa withdraw the charges, which he knew were honest and square. Throughout (ho entire ena vernation Mr Boutell showed great ladigaattoa over the way the Conaertimt papers had haadled the lavestigatiag com ntittee aad Its art ions. Renectru!!T. E- W. REI5INGER. M. D. la my own behalf I desire It eay that I am not roan-tons cf anv'h'ag la my public or private life lac3:i eat with the coadnrt of an ho"-ab: ma a. If aay perwn i aware of sweh a fact I eipect of eomne. that wti! give It proper weight In decMfna; la his own mind the question of my guilt or Innocence. I have not and have never had any Interest in any company constructing or selling submarine torpedo boals. I have not and have never had af filiations with any person Interested in the construction or sale of subma rine torpedo boats. My prepossessions often publicly avowed, whether right or wrong, have been against the util ity of submarine boats as engines of warfare. If I am not guilty of mis-statement in any of these respects I believe that I can claim at the outset the presump tion of innocence which common fair ness accords to a man whose life has been without serious reproach and who has no selfish ends to accom plish. I testified before the committee and I reiterate here that my motive la In troducing my resolution calling for an investigation was the public wel fare and that I did not act in concert with any other person. The very In formality of the resolution as I 'ntro duced it Is In itself proof that 1 did not have the aid of professional .tJ vice. , The representatives of the Laka Torpedo Boat Co who took the stand during the investigation testified 'h it they had no knowledge of my pu.-oase to Introduce the resolution. It Is true that the immediate moving cause of my act was my conviction that the appropriation bill as framed in the naval committee, would so restrict the" powers of the secretary of the navy that he would be compelled to purchase submarine boats of the Electric Boat company to the de struction of competition and to the disadvantage of the government. While the present threatened loss to the government and the people was the immediate prompting cause of my action, my belief that the methods employed by the Electric Boat company warranted investiga tion was of long standing. The matter had first been called (o my attention by the late Senator Piatt of Connecticut whose Judgment the whole country respected. He had in my presence, and with an exhibition of angry feeling unusual with him, expressed the Intention of himself moving such an investiga tion. The other grounds of my be lief that the practices of the Electric Boat company should be inquired into I stated to the committee and they are now well known to the pub lic. I will not consider their im portance here as I do not intend to go into the merits of the case. I will say simply that they had weight In my mind. Against the presumption of hon esty and my own direct testimony and that of the representatives of the Lake Torpedo Boat company there was no direct evidence. In the minds of the committee, how ever, all these were out-weighed by certain circumstances ' which the committee Incorporate in the report strung together on a chronological thread. They are. I believe, insigni ficant individually and In the ag gregate. Substantially they are these: I did at one time at the request of a representative of the Lake Tor pedo Boat company send a telegram and two letters to the secretary of the navy requesting favorable con sideration of the Interests of the company. An examination of the letters will show that I put the re quest upon the ground that com petition was for the Interest of the government. It also appears and Is true that In company with other members of the Connecticut delega tion I called upon the secretary of the navy and that there requests were made for a proper considera tion of the Lake Torpedo Boat com pany as a competitor for contracts. The committee found that the Connecticut delegation was enter tained at lunch or dinner by repre sentatives of the Lake Torpedo Boat company at the new Willard hotel. It omits to find that I was not pres ent on that occasion although that fact appeared In evidence. It Is true lhat after my resolu tion was Introduced I received as sistance and my counsel received ss slstanre from the counsel of the Lake Torpedo Boat company In pre pating statements that were made to the committee. It Is true also that afr I had been denied the assist ing of counsel to examine witnesses In the ordinary way and my persona counsel had returned to their Con necticut homes, there were handed to me by the counsel of the Lake Torpedo Boat company lists of ques tions which I sdopted and presented io the committee as my own. I believed at the time and f be lieve now that I had a perfect right lc secure Information as to proper lines of Inquiry and assistance in the preparation of papers from any source where such Information and assistance could le oh'alned and that the source from which I pro cured them wss my own affair. I believed and I still believe that the thing of consequence to the committee was the answers broucht oat by the questions and not the origin of the questions them?lve. Whether I was well advised In par ticipating 1 'he conduct of the hearing and In attempting to take part in the examlna'lon of witnesses under conditions which compelled my counsel lo decline act. may be fairly an open question, but I can no' understand what It ha to do with the Integrity of my mo Ives. I was endeavoring. tneperlcBcd as I was la such matters, to help the committee so far aa 1 waa al'e. la eliciting the trath. I ass not at temp leg at this time to defend mrseif against a charg of faulty Jmltmeo.

Fire starting in the basement of Mrs Mary Moon ey's boarding house at 313 West 30th street early to-day completely cut ot the escape of Mrs Mooney's 20 boarders and when the flremea came one young woman had fallen or thrown herself from the rooi to me navement and was dead. Several others were severely burned and the upper windows, front and rear, were crowded with people begging to be saved. The dead woman is Miss Ma rie Beletraine who occupied a hall rftom on the too floor. The injured are Mrs George Mlekle, burned about the hands, and head ueoigo Miekle., burned about the arms and feet; Mrs Mooney burned about the hands and body; Mrs Mary Haggerty, burned about the hands, face and body; Mrs Mary Haggerty, burned about the hands, face and body, and overcome by smoke, condition criti cal; Mrs Madge Clarke, burns about the head and face; Miss Mae Emer son, sisters of Mrs Clarke, injured by falling down stairs. The Are started in the cellar in a coal bin. It mounted througu jne hall and stairs and when the awaken ed boarders tried to get to the street they were driven back. Some cf them went to the rooms on thu upper floors and some to the roof. "Don't Jump," called several men from the street as they saw the heads of men and women appearing at the windows on the upper floors, "Don't jump, here come the firemen." As the first fire company galloped up Miss Beletraine, in her night clothing, appeared on the roof and plunged over the coping. One of Mer shoes caught in the half open shut ters. The shutters closed and for an Instant the woman's body dangled in space. Then the shoe came off and she fell striking on her head. When the men in the street got to her she was dead. As there were no firs escapes and the blaze cut off exit by the hallways, firemen were sent through an adjoining building whence they crossed to the roof of the burning house. Mrs Miekle was confused by the smoke and was .i li able to reach the roof. Captain Sw e ney saw her at a-wlndow on ths op floor, and tying a rope to the chimney lowered h mself to the window whence the other firemen drew her to the roof. Mrs Mooney tried to get down the stairs and finding them ablaze turned and went to the roof. She was burned while on the stairs leading from the first to the second floor. Lieutenant Reilly tied a wet cloth over his face and entered the burning house through a scuttle from the roof. Feeling his way through the heavy smoke from room to room, Reilly stumbled upon Mrs Haggerty in the third floor front room. She had fallen and then crawled part way under the bed, seeking shelter from the fumes and then fainted. Lieu tenant Reilly carried her to the roof and thence to the street. The fire was quickly extinguished with 1,000 damage. Steamer Aground. Blyth. June 2. The Danish steamer Louisiana from Stettin for Boston went aground in Seaton Sluice last night. censured for not doing If he had emitted to do it. Of the anonymous communication wrl'ter by Whitney I had no knowl edge whatever. I mads no charge sgninst any member of the house. A suggestion that a member of the house had been annoyed by Impor tunities of the Electric Boat com pany representatives cannot right fully be construed as a charge against the member. A request that the committee ascertain by Impartial investigation whether Improper practices on the part of the Electric Boat company had influenced con gressional action. Is no". In my judg ment a charge against members of the house. I believed and still be lieve that the Electric Boat com .any has received excessive profit In the' mle of submarine boats to the "r.lte1 Sta es government. That be lief has been strengthened by the testimony given before the commit tee by the responsible person, that he would take a contract for the consiructlon of submarines at the price which I mentioned as giving liUral profit to the contractor. I believe I have now stated all of the ma'erial farts which l"r upon the question of my good faith. Whether the conclusions of the co-mi!ttee In this particular were Ji CmI or not I leave the public ! Judg. Conscious of the honesty of my mo'ives and having Informa tion of the facts mentioned in the letter Incorporated In this paper, and having learned from my coun sel that a member of the commit tee had said to him In the presence of o-her members and without any dissent on their part that the com mittee had no donM of my sincer ity, and knowing that the state ments "o nit physician and my coun sel were made near the rloee of the hearing and after 1 had concluded niy testimony my feeling or rather anv con ditto a on learning the com mittee a conclusions was stapefao tina. I present this statement of my position without any elaboration of details and with the renewed ex pression of my gratitade to the poi tie that has so generouly accord ed me lT confijeace a confidence which t nope I have deserved and shall never forfeit.
