Morgan & Co., in resigning from num
erous corporation directorates, but It
was not believed that it would prevent
an attempt In congress at the present
session to enact legislation to prohibit
Interlocking directorates
There was a general impression'
while the action was a step In the)
right direction, It did not signalize the
breakup of the so called money trust.
Lawyers who followed the money
trust Investigation by the house com
mittee pointed out that while Morgan
& Co. had given up directorships la
several large banks and trust com
panies the connections severed for the
most part were with railroads. So fnr
as these officials could see from the
information at hand, the relations be
tween some of the big financial Insti
tutions In New York hnve not been
broken, although this might follow.
Representative Lindbergh, of Min
nesota, author of a hill to prohibit
Interlocking directorates, said:
"I doubt If the action of Morgan ft
Co. will have any effect on legislation
It Is In line with the evident purpose
of big business to try to meet the div
mauds of the people and Is in antici
pation or legislation."
