iCARLSTAD, Sweden, Sept. 15. The
meeting this morning of the delesratcs of
Norway and Swedon, who are Interested
to the dissolution of the union of Norway.
And Sweden, was postponed for an hour
at the roquost of the Norwegians. Subse
quently the delegates met at noon and
adjourned at 2 P. M. until 5 o'clock. Swed
ish military experts attended today's ses
sion. The Norwegian Premier, M. Mlcholsen,
one of the delegates of Norway at the
conference here, says he knows nothing
conarmatory of the report that Great
Britain, France and Germany have made
representations to Sweden on the subject
of the crisis. The Swedish representatives
declare the rumor Is ridiculous.
The ovenlng session adjourned at 6:45
o'clock until tomorrow. The Associated
Ir6 Imls reason to believe that the ques
tion of demolition of the fortifications on
the Norwegian frontier was discussed at
the afternoon session, and that the discus
sion developed wide differences of opinion.
Swedish military experts were present
during the session, but Norwegian mili
tary exports were not present.
The excltment at Stockholm and Chris

troops to the frontier continues.

able to settle their differences.

Swedtah Minister, Baron de Bildt, and Dr.
Nansen have had conversations with the
highest officials of the Foreign Office, but
no proposal for British arbitration has

Believes in Publicity.
"Were you in a position to know of
other campaign contributionsT'
"I don't know; that Is a question that
ought to be looked Into. In all the cam
palgn contributions, I believe that tho
fullest publicity should be attached. They
ought to be publicly known, and there
ought to be a law passed to that effect"
"If the president out of his own execu

sums as these, how do they ever come

no authority over the agency accounts

to Andrew Hamilton, March 9. 1$M. He
could not tell whether they had to do

Acting for Both Parties.
Assemblyman Rogers then expressed his
desire to ask a few questions about the
sale of bonds on December 31 to J. P.
Morgan & Co. and the repurchase on
January 2. "
"Now. Mr. Perkins, you acted in the
transaction for the life Insurance com
pany and also for J. P. Morgan & Co.?"
"I completed, the transaction for J. P.
Morgan & Co. Decause that house was the
only place where I could realize a fair
sum for tho bonds at that time. We lost
nothing in that transaction, and we mado
nothing, but in financial transactions It Is
Just us important not to make a loss as
to show a profit"
Mr. Rogers Has there been any other
case in which you have acted for both
the New York Life and J. P. Morgan &
Co. at the same time?
"1 recall no other transaction."
When asked how he divided his loyalty
between the New York Life and his
banking Arm, Mr. Perkins said he did his
"I want to say," continued Mr. Porklns.
"right here that since I havo been with
J. P. Morgan & Co. during these last
four yoars that company has marKeteti

"I do; all of them."
Bondbuylng on Joint Account
"In regard to tho Boston bonds, you
bought them to sell at a profit and to
divide It up with tho partners In the syn
dicate?" "Not at all. We bought them as a good
Investment. We go Into these affairs to
get possession of the bonds, and we may
hold them for years before sale. I am
very proud of this Joint account. I orig
inated It; I conduct It It Is an arrange
ment to get bonds at cost prices."
"Is the loss divided in these Joint ac
counts?" "Yes; but we reserve the right to with
draw our securities. The other man has
no right to our share of the profits."
As to these Joint accounts Mr. Perkins
"When we desire a certain security we
go to a firm and tell them if they will
take half of a quantity of bonds we will
take the other half. These people some
times say: We would like to do busi
ness, but It Is Inconvenient at this, time;
we have not the money.' As we are look
ing to loan money, we say: 'If you will
bo responsible for your share, we will
loan you the money and withdraw our
bonds and carry the rest at bond Interest
on Joint account'
Mr. Perkins was asked as to a number
of temporary loans that appeared on the
.books, but he would not testify without
the details and data, which he will fur
nish at a later session.
Adjournment was taken today at 4
o'clock, to enable members of the com
mlttee to return to their homes. There
will be no session until Wednesday.
Profits on Joint Account.
At the morning session, Edmund D.
Randolph, treasurer of the New York
Life Insurance Company, was again
called to the stand. He presented a
statement of the profits realized from
the operations -of the New York Life
Insurance Company's joint accounts. It
showed profits of JS93.541 in 10 years.
A book of the financial transactions
in non-ledger assets of the New York
Life Insurance Company, kept at its
Hanover Bank ofllce, was also gone
over. Checks for 100.000 were found
In the accounts of that office. These were
paid to Mr. Hamilton, who, Mr. Randolph
said, was connected with the law de
partment These payments were made
on order of the President without any
action whatever by the finance com'
mlttee, and Mr. Randolph said he
knew nothing whatever about them.
On December 30, another instance of
checks ordered paid by the president
to the amount of $48,702 was found,
and Mr. Randolph says he knew of no
one but the president who could tell
what those items were for.
In relation to the statement of the
profits, presented earlier, Mr. Ran
dolph referred Mr. Hughes to Mr.
Perkins, who has charge of that
part of the financial operations. Mr.
Perkins was sent for at this stage of

"Were all the other members of the

Perkins' Business Career.
Mr. Perkins then took the stand. He
presented his original contract with the
New York Life, which was a letter from
his father in 1572 offering him a position
as clerk. It was dated Pittsburg, March
27, 1S72, and said In part:
I have obtained a situation for you with
the New York Life to act for the present as
my clerk at a salary of 23 per month, com
mencing Anrll 1. 1ST 2. Its continuance will
depend upon your Improvement In spelling
and writing, which will need to be very
rapid. Also upon your care to attend to
everything given you to do promptly with
out making any blunders or mistakes, and if
In every respect you are honest, truthful and
faithful In your duties It will lead eventu
ally to some better posiuon. Mr. Beers
hopes that you will prove to be the coming
man of the company. I will Instruct you
about your duties in detail when I reach
Mr. Perkins went on: "I want to
say I was 16 years old when the letter
was written. I wanted to leave school
and go to work at once. I have tried
to live up to the injunctions in this
Mr. Perkins said ho succeeded to the
first vice-presidency in 1903, with a
salary of $25,000. Before he entered
the firm of J. P. Morgan & Co. he drew
a salary of $75,000 from the New York
Life, but it was reduced upon entering
Ills Dual Position.
Mr. Perkins entered with great de
tail upon the manner of his becoming
a partner In the Morgan house, and
also his relations to the New York
Life. He declared that profits accru
ing to him on bonds sold to the New
York Life by J. P. Morgan & Co. he
turned back to tho Insurance company
by his personal check.
Mr. Perkins was asked If W. S.
Fanshaw & Co. purchased bonds of J.
P. Morgan & Co.
"They do." was the Teply.
"Does the New York Life buy of W.
'They do; but what's your point?"
the witness demanded. "Do you want
to know If there is any underground
method whereby I get a profit In se
curities sold to the New York Lifer
"That's It" said Mr. Hughes.
"Well, there's nothing of the kind
done." Mr. Perkins replied.
'Will you tell us. Mr. Perkins,
what exactly are the relations of the
New York Life and J. P. Morgan & Co.
Do you personally profit by these rela
tions?" Mr. Perkins aroso and said: "We
have been very successful In develop
ing our agency work. Our business
was increasing and the organization
pretty well completed. We made an
estimate as to what the figures would
reach, and we found that in 12 years
it would reach 51.000.000.000. It was a
startling proposition, and It becamo
evident that we ought to have banking
facilities. We wanted a man conver
sant with the work. I was selected
.after discussion of the work. We
wanted to connect the man who was
to be Insured with the people who were
to Invest their money. At this time
Mr. Morgan made me a flattering offer.
"I could not see my way clear to
leave the New York Life, and I de
clined the offer. As a result of that
declination. I had my salary raised to
$75,600 a year. While that was large,
it was not moro than what I refused
from Mr. Morgan. Finally one day the
proposition was' made to me to occupy
the dual position I now occupy with
both concerns. The arrangements I
made were that my salary should be
reduced in the New York Life, and
that my efforts should be directed fo
rward the banking business."

Xo "United States Official Will Go
"WASHINGTON, Sept. 15. Develop
ments occurred In the Albers case which
may make It unnecessary for Consul
