the stand when the committee resumed
the hearing.
Samuel Untermyer, counsel for the
committee, asked:
"What Is your present occupation?"
"Well. I am a student lust now,"
answered Sir. Perkins with a smile.
"I also spend considerable time testi
fying before congressional committees."
Mr. Perkins told of having been a
member of the firm of J. P. Morgan
& Co., and of his connection with the
United States Steel Corporation. He
was still a director and member of the
finance committee of the corporation,
he said, and had a great deal to do
with Its business organization after It
was formed. Mr. Perkins, as a director
of the steel corporation and the Inter
national Harvester Company. Is a de
fendant in the Government's suit for
dissolution of those concerns.
roastble Immunity Discussed.
As Untermyer began to question
him about those two companies, there
was much speculation among lawyers
and others present as to whether Mr.
Perkins" answers would give him im-
munlty from any possible Government
Mr. Perkins said the corporation
bought Its own stock only, so far as
he knew, to be Bold to employes under
profit-sharing schemes.
"We never knew of the corporation's
buying Its own stock ib protect It In
the market and know of no pools to
manipulate the market in steel stock,"
he said.
"Do you believe that directors should
be allowed to trade In the stock of their
own corporations, on advance informa
tion secured by them through their
connection with the corporation?"
asked Mr. Untermyer.
"I do not," said Mr. Perkins.
"The Steel Corporation was the first
big corporation to give entire publicity
to Its affairs, was It not?" asked Mr.
"Tes, so far as I know."
Publicity Is Favored.
Mr. Perkins said he believed all cor
porations should give publicity to all
Iheir affairs.
"Now, as to the organization of the
Harvester Company, that was -more
particularly your Job, was It not?" v
"It was," said Mr. Perkins.
Mr. Untermyer told Mr. Perkins that
he did not wish to ask any questions
that might bear upon the suit of the
Government against the Harvester
"In fairness to myself and the com
mittee," said Mr. Perkins, "I suggest
that I have Just testified In that suit
and it would be difficult for me to
testify about the Harvester Company
without infringing on the matters at
Mr. Untermyer dropped the question
as to the Harvester Company after the
witness had said he was a member of
its finance committee. Mr. Perkins
said he was one of the original voting1
trustees of the Bankers' Trust Com
pany. "What useful purpose Is served by
placing the voting power of a trust
company in the hands of a few trus
tees ? asked Mr. Untermyer.
Voting Trust Explained.
Mr. Perkins answered that he be
lieved a voting trust was used in
organizing a new concern, to insure its
being run along certain lines Indorsed
by the trustees. He declared he did
not believe persons ought to have the
power to go out and buy one or two
shares of stock and then demand repre
sentation on a board of directors, and
"raise hob with the institution."
Mr. Untermyer asked if Mr. Perkins
hsd formed an idea as to the desir
ability of "placins the Stock Exchange
under legal control."
Mr. Perkins said he favored putting
the Stock Exchange under Federal con
trol. .
"What legislation would you recom
mend against abuses on the Stock Ex
change?" "Well, that Is a matter that leads
Into detail. I believe that many of the
co-called abuses would cure themselves
with plenty of publicity." said Mr.
Even Farmers Gamble.
"What would you do about manipu
lation of prices to produce false
values?" asked Mr. Untermyer.
"Well, that Is a difficult question."
said Mr. Perkins. "That form of
gambling Is indulged In even down to
the farmer who sells his wheat this
Winter for delivery next Spring."
Mr. Perkins sold he knew nothing
personally about manipulation of
Albert F. Burrage. of Boston, testi
fied before the committee that he
was an organizer of the Amalgamated
Copper Company In 1896. He named as
Ms associates William Rockefeller.
Marcus Daly. H. H. itosers and others.
Burrage could not remember how much
was made by the organizers in tun -ing
over the various properties to tiie
-Was the profit 139.000,000?" asked
"I could not say." answered Burrage.
He could not remember his own profits
nor those of Thomas W. Lawson. Will
lam Rockefeller and Rogers.
Burrage said he got his profit in se
curities, fio far as he could remember,
and did not get any Butte & Boston or
Boston & Montana.
Barrage Forgets la Millions.
"Will you say that your profit was
not more than $5,000,000?" asked Un
termyer. .
"I could not say." answered Burrage.
He knew of no records of the deal.
"M-.en this entire deal, involving J75.
000.0. was accomplished without the
scratch of a pen?" asked the counsel.
"Tes so far as I, know."
"The public cams in in shoals, didn't
It" asked Untermyer.
"Yes. you might say that." said Bur-
He could not say whether the "In
siders" entered large requests for sub
scriptions to the stock, but he knew
that before the stock was allotted the
price had gone to $115 or $120 per $100
share. About $375,000,000 of offers, he
said, were received for the $75,000,000
of stock.
Burrage could not remember details
of operation by which Amalgamated
took over Boston & Montana and
Butte & Boston. Boston & Butte,
Burrage said, was accumulated on his
advice. Later, he said, the Globe Bank
of Boston failed, holding a large block
of Boston & Montana stock. Just
prior to the failure, he said, Lawson
conducted a vigorous advertising cam
paign, "bulling" Butte &- Boston and
"bearing" Boston & Montana. He did
not believe Lawson's advertising cam
paign had any relation to the Globe
Amalgamated Fronts Large.
Burraee said that Butte & Boston
stock was exchanged for Amalgamated
at a rate of four shares or Amalga
mated for one of Butte & Boston, which,
with Amalgamated at 130, made a price
of 520. Boston & Montana, he said, was
exchanged share for share with Amal
gamated in the merger.
Untermyer asked if Rogers and
Rockefeller had not acquired Butte
& Boston and Boston Montana
and had then as directors of the
Amalgamated voted to buy this stoca
for themselves. But Burrage did not
"But you know that the value of
these stocks increased from $30,000.-
000 to $104,000,000 when they were
transferred to the Amalgamated?"
"Yes. a profit for those who held the
shares." answered Burrage.
Burrage said that in 1904 he ordered
:l his papers and accounts destroyed
jecause Lawson and Rogers were en
gaged In an altercation.
"They were both friends of mine and
1 did not wish to become Involved,"
sa.d Burrage.
The committee In executive session
determined that Chairman Pujo and At
torney Untermyer should visit William
Rockefeller and take his testimony
In spite of the opposition of Mr. Pujo.
The determination followed the report
of Dr. C. W. Richardson, who asserted
that Mr. Rockefeller could submit to
a brief examination without immediate
serious results.

Lady de Bathe, of Historic Beauty and Histrionic Career, Finds Women
Are Cruel and Conscienceless, but Men a Trifle Better.
IN my scrap-book I shall paste this
as my shortest interview to date.
It Is a record of a deed of daring
and sheer nerve on my part and a
tale of a poor and sometimes noble
wo-r-rking g-u-r-r-1 scorned and
turned down flat.
The cast of the play reads as fol
lows: Lady Lily Langtry De Bathe. Herself
Poor and Noble W. G.. Etc.. Myself
The scene was laid in the second
floor corridor going south in the
Portland Hotel. The time was 10 min
utes after 10 o'clock last night. The
plot concerned my wild and unre
strained efforts to get an interview out
of Lady De Bathe.
Sometimes to digress a minute I
think I ought to be burned in oil for
the wicked yarns I tell about actors
and actresses not "wishing to care"
for an Interview. Believe me!!! They
usually gallop up to the office with their
little scrap-books under their arms and
their latest photographs In their hands.
But hope-to-die If this time I'm not
telling the truth.
Lady Lily Langtry De Bathe has
absolutely no hankering for any sort
of an interview and said so in much
less time than it has taken be to
teil It.
Not to me did she say it but to
Frank McGettlgan, press agent at the
"Interviews are all very well, don't
you know," said Lady Lily, "but 1
absolutely refuse to talk for a paper."
City Editor Feel Antagonised.
Which bit of conversation acted on
our city editor Just like a red rag does
to a bull to be bromldlc With the
result that he told me to Interview
the Jersey Lily.
"But it can't be done," sez I with
a mental blue-print of my best face
having the door politely shut on it.
If you are at all conversant with
the ways of city editors you'll know
how far my expostulations went.
Now we take up the thread of the
main story again. After the finish of
Lady Lily's act I gave her mentally
of course a half hour In which to
dress and get over to the hotel. And
she did it which of Itself Is some
what remarkable. (But they do say
she has three maids.)
Then I walked Into the hotel and
told the clerk what I was going to do,
so the house detective wouldn't grab
me just as I waylaid my prey. While
I sat In a chair opposite the elevator
I practiced my mode of approach
and my form of address and was so
busy making thought photos of nobil
ity at close range that her ladyship's
acutely ebon maid almost got past me
before I realized the parade was about
to start. I followed right on the heels
of the mafd. who walked with the
conscious near-majestic tread peculiar
to help of this color and brides on
their first trip up the aisle. She wore
a wonderful pony coat and a be
plumed hat. did the maid, and carried
a big sable coat over her arm pre
sumably Lady De Bathe's.
"Aad What If I AmP She Says.
"Will you tell me," I began. In a
voice in which I tried to blend com
mand and wheedling. Then the large
oak door gently and softly closed right
on my nose.
"Well," sez I to myself, "Madame will
have to come here to get in so I'll
At that very minute she rounded the
corner. And I went to meet her. She
kept close to the right wall and eyed
me coldly and distrustfully as I closed
in upon her.
"A thousand pardons!" I rushed out
the words not at all what I'd planned
to say "but arent you Lady De
"And what if I am?" came in an
icily cold voice clear as the tinkle
of cut crystal and powerfully sweet.
"Well," I stammered. "I want an in
terview." "An interview?" she echoed "as If 1
had asked her please to cut off a
slice of her nose and 'give it to our
city museum. "Why, do you 'not know
that I am never interviewed?" (Heavy
accent on the never.)
"Well," I lied, "my city editor told
me not to come back without a story
from you." All this time I kept wig
wagging back and forth in the hall
to keep her from bolting.
"I do not care what your city editor
said and I positively will not be Inter
"Why not?" I asked.
"Well, for one thing, because I am
always so cruelly misrepresented. No
one ever tells the truth about me. They
dig up old and forgotten things so
many of them untrue and attribute to
me things I never dreamed of saying."
Royalty Geta "Taken In."
While she was saying all this I was
drinking her In.
She had on a gorgeous gray char
meuse gown, soft clinging to the love
liest figure I eveV saw besides a cloak
model's. Any corset ad that uses Lily
Langtry's signature and "I use 'em"
testimonial comes under the head of
unauthentic I learned that In the
brief time I watched her treading ma
jestically toward me in the halL
She stood out against the soft gray
background like a silhouette. She is
all curves, the real old-fashioned kino
that go with panniers, bustles and
poke bonnets. She held her chin well
up and thrust out; her skirt was very
long and swished and wound about her
Idly she jangled a key and surseyed
me as -if I were an Insect she was just
going to puncture with a pin and
mount on a card for later inspection.
Her hat was slanted way up on one
side and drooped close down over a
pair of marvelous green eyes. Actually
green, I tell you. Great, wide, deep,
far-seeing eyes they are with thick
black lashes, and so cold and disdainful
they cut like tiny blue flames.

young face; it's as unlined as a girl off

'round her eyes and mouth.
While I was taking this In I was say
ing. "If you'll give me an interview. I'll
quote you word for word."
"No, you could not," Interrupted tne
Lady Lily; "you are like all the rest,
"But." I remonstrated, "as woman to
woman I'd give you a square deal."
And I meant it.
But Lady De Bathe wouldn't listen.
Women Found Cruel.
"All women are cruel,"- Bhe said.
"Why should you prove an exception?
Men have a smattering of conscience,
but women have none at alL They peer
at me In the most Insolent way 1

a dozen maids, and never quote me cor

and you wrote it verbatim and I
allowed It to get into print, I would ex
pect to wake up the next morning and
read that I had said something that
never entered my head. A newspaper

be a personal interview. If you will

correctly and put In only what you
"I haven't a doubt but that you
think right at this moment you are
telling me the truth," flashed Lady De
Bathe, "but I will -not talk."
"Not about politics?"
"Not about- dress?"
"No a thousand no's."
"Not about your horses?"
"No, I tsll you, I have no opinions,
I have no idea. I have no thoughts, I
have nothing to say now or at any
other time an any subject whatsoever."
"Well, listen, here's the stock ques
tion for interviews:
" 'Do I like your- Northwest? " she
mimicked, and for one moment her
green eyes almost smiled and & wicked
little smile dawned at the corners of
her lips.
"Tes, you may say I like the North
west," and the tail of ,her skirt whisked
into the door out of which the ebon
faced handmaiden was peering.

Lumber Lost From Coaster Sighted
130 Miles Away.
In a report made on Puget Sound,
Captain Youngren, master of the
steamer Hyades, says that when three
miles south of the Umatilla Reef light
vessel, bound from San Francisco,
wreckage from the lost steamer Rose
crans was passed, and that since the
wreck some of her Bear had drifted ap
proximately 130 miles. Among the
stuff floating was a teakwood ladder,
formerly a part of the deck fittings of
the Rosecrans.
Near the light vessel was also a col
lection of floating timbers that ap
peared to have been part of the deck
load of a steam schooner, and, while
not identified, it is believed to be a
part of 100,000 feetlost by the steamer
Westerner when she struck while try
ing to cross out" to sea and was dam
aged, but managed to return to As
toria under her own power. Reports
from Ilwaco are that dozens of souve
