iri5HTr.TnV Julv 15. After an
other day's fight over the nomination
cf Thomas D. Jones, of Chicago, as a
member of the Federal Keserve Board,
opponents of confirmation were deciar.
ti- timlsrht that at least eight and pos
sibly ten Democratic Senators would
vote against the President s cnoice.
On the other hand, champions of Mr.
Jones stM were hopeful and were ex
erting every effort to line up the votes
necessary to override on the floor of
the- Senate tomorrow the banking com
mittee majority's adverse report.
Testimony Plemnes Both Sides
Roth Ridia professed to see added
strencth for their positions In the pub
lintinn r, f Mr. Jones' testimony before
the committee at Its recent Inquiry and
his relations with the International
Harvester Company and the New Jer
sey Zinc Company. The testimony
was made putjlic by unanimous vote
late today, after Senator HltchcocK,
acting chairman of th committee, had
submitted the majority adverse report
In executive sesssion.
In the course of his examination the
record showed, while defending the
harvester company and the actions of
Its board of directors since he became
a member in 1309, Mr. Jones said be
was thoroughly in accord with what
he believed to be President "Wilson's
policy In destroying monopoly.
Minority to Submit Report.
Publication of the majority findings
was withheld by the Senate pending
submission of a minority report favor
ing Mr. Jones' confirmation, which
probably will be filed tomorrow by
Senators Hollls. Shafroth, Tomerene
and Lee. of Maryland. The majority re
port was slened by Senators Hitchcock
and Reed. Democrats; Nelson. Brlstow,
Crawford. McLean and Weeks. Repub
licans. The Democratic minority. It Is re
ported, charged that the majority were
prejudicial in their findings; that they
excluded from the report certain por
tions of Mr. Jones' testimony which put
him in a favorable light, using, in
reaching their conclusions, portions of
testimony which appeared unfair when
segregated from the rest, and. In fact,
that the report was of & slanderous
nature. Majority Senators are said to
have replied that , attention could be
called In the minority report to mat
ters that the. majority might have
failed to mention.
Presence as Director Explained.
In the record of testimony taken by
the committee with regard to Mr.
Jones' election as a director of the har
vester company, which is now under
Investigation by the Government as i
monopoly In restraint of trade, the fol
"Senator Hitchcock: Would you like
to state to the committee your reasons
for going Into the directorate of this
company without having any financial
interest In it?
"Mr. Jones: Certainly. I had been
on terms of intimacy with the McCor
mick family since I went to Chicago
over 30 years ago. and In the early part
of 1909 they said to me that there was
a vacancy on the board of the harvester
company and they would like me to
consent to become a director. I told
them what they knew already, that
had no Interest whatever In the stock
of the concern and had no plans con
templating an investment; and they
knew that, and that it was not an in
vestor in stocks that they were look
ing for; it was somebody who could
afford to give the time and was willing
to give the time such time as would
be demanded as a director of the com
pany: and they asked me as a personal
favor to do so.
Compensation Never Kxpeeted.
"Senator Hitchcock: Not for any
"Mr. Jones: Not the slightest, nor
the promise of any, nor the expectation
"Senator Pomerene: When j'ou say
they' will you please state the names?
"Mr. Jones: Mr. Cyrus M. McCormick
was the man who asked me; but be told
me that he was speaking on behalf of
his mother and brother and sister and
the family. My acquaintance had been
a family acquaintance from the time I
went to Chicago."
"Senator Hitchcock: It was then a
matter of personal feeling for the Mc
Cormlck family that led you to be
come a director; acting on a desire to
Later In the examination this ap
peared: "Senator Reed: Tou accorded with
the general policies of the company
while you were in it?
Harvester Dealings Defended.
"Mr. Jones: After my election, yes
sir, I did."
"Senator Hollis: Tou satisfied your
self as to whether the selling contracts
are unfair?" ,
"Mr. Jones: I have satisfied myself
that I believe they are entirely fair.
There is no element of exclusive deal
ing in them at all. The agents of the
International Harvester Company's ma
chines handle the Deere machines; they
handle any other machines that they
"Senator Hollls: So that you. by per
sonal investigation have satisfied your
self that there is nothing in the con
duct of the International Harvester
Company with which a high-minded
man can not prooerly identify him
self?" "Mr. Jones: "I have."
Zinc Combine Denied.
Inquiry into Mr. Jones' affiliation
with the New Jersey Zinc Company as
stockholder and director was not ex
tended. He explained that he joined in
the acquisition of the New Jersey Zina
Company of the Mineral Point Zinc
Company In 1897. and later of other
zinc 'companies, involving a large con
solidation. He said the New Jersey Company's
mine produced a grade of oxide of sine
that could be had nowhere else, and
although the company controlled $5 per
cent of the oxide of zinc trade of the
country, there bad been no combination
in restraint of trade,

It Is believed In some quarters here
that Carbajal may make an effort to
obtain immunity from arrest for Huerta
if he stays In Mexico City. The Huerta
delegates in New York have tried to
secure guarantees for htm, but even
if these were given, friends of the
dictator think he would be safest out

Government to force his retirement
John Lind was sent to Mexico last Sum
mer In an effort to bring about the
withdrawal of Huerta. President Wil
son later went to Congress and re
vealed the terms on which .Huerta had
practically been asked to retire from
office. An embargo on arms was placed
on both Mexican factions and the Wash
ington Government then began Its
policy of cutting off financial aid for
the Huerta government not only irom
the United States, but also from Kurope.
Huerta's . Resources Gone.
Huerta's resources slowly diminished
under the pressure of the United States.
The constitutionalists, aided by the
moral support of the American Govern
ment, pushed their military campaign
to within striking distance of the capi
tal. Realizing that a military conquest
of Mexico City by the constitutionalists
was inevitable. General Huerta finally
yielded to the persuasion of the hun
dreds of Influential Mexicans who
prayed that further bloodshed and dis
turbances at Mexico City be avoided.
With Huerta's retirement the consti
tutionalists feel that their revolution
has virtually triumphed. They turned
against him the moment he overthrew
Madero, the constitutional President of
Mexico, In February, 1912. and have
waged their war with unrelenting vigor
American forces will not be with
drawn from Vera Cruz until a stable
government has been established In
Mexico City and recognition has been
accorded the new government. The
feeling Is general, however, that If
Carranza gives guarantees to political
otfenders. as well as the people gen
erally, recognition will be promptly
extended by the United States and na
trons of Central and South America, as
well as Europe.
Incidentally, the resignation of Hu
erta now places Kurope on an equal
footing with the United States with re
spect to the authorities at Mexico City.
Tho powers of Europe had recognized
Huerta. but on account of the pro
nounced attitude of the United States
they are expected to follow the lead ot
the American Government before ex
tending recognition again to Carbajal
or his successor.
