W. HL DANIELS GETS
Interstate Commerce Official
Confirmed by Senate Fol
, lowing Bitter Fight.
SECRET DEBATE GIVEN OUT
Custom of Withholding From Public
of Executive Session Proceed
ings Broken, Progressives
Iefing Old Itules.
WASHINGTON. Jan. 10. Confirma
tion of Winthrop M. Daniels, of New
Jersey, to succeed himself as a member
of the Interstate Commerce Commission
was voted by Ihe Senate tonight and,
contrary to custom, a part of the de
bate on the nomination was made pub
lic revealing the bitterness of the fight
waged against it in executive sessions.
The vote, taken after opposition had
delayed action for nearly a month,
stood 42 to 15. All of the Senators of
the so-called Progressive wing of the
Republican party and one Democrat,
Senator Iiollis, voted in the negative.
Excerpts from the executive debate
Include a -speech by Senator Cummins
attacking Commissioner Daniels' fit
ness for a place on the Commission be
cause of rulings he handed down as the
Tublic Utilities Commissioner of New
Jersey and declaring that In granting
increases to the railroads in the ad
vance rate case the Interstate Com
merce Commission, led by Mr. Daniels,
"ignored the law.and exercised an au
thority which never has been and never
will be conferred on any Commission."
Senator JVevr lands I Defender.
A reply by Senator Newlands, de
fending the Commissioner's part of
both of these cases, also was given out.
It was one of the few instances in
recent times when such a course has
been adopted regarding debates behind
closed doors, and recalled the sensa
tional attack on rules of secrecy made
by Progressive Republicans when Mr.
Daniels first was nominated to the
Commission in 1913. At that time Sen
ator La Follette and several other Sen
ators, after vainly fighting confirma
tion for several weeks, announced that
they would defy, the secrecy rule

tion today. Senator Cummins went at
length into the railroad control situa
tion and-declared he believed the Fed

t-overnmcnt Ownership Preferable.
"I believe that our system of the
control and regulation of common car
riers is on final trial and if the Com
mission is to be made up of men of Mr.
Daniels' trend of mind the system must
be abandoned," said the Iowa Senator.
"For one, I have no hesitation in de
claring that if his views are to prevail
I am for absolute and immediate Gov
ernment ownership and operation of
our transportation facilities.
"if the charges for service rendered
by our public carriers are to increase
year after year in the rapid rate which
the principles which he advocates will
not only authorize but require, the bur
den, now heavy, will become insupport
able." An exhaustive review of the "cam
paign" for a general freight rate in
crease begun by the railroads in 1910
was given by Senator Cummins, who
eaid the movement proceeded until it
seemed to bring under Its influence all
the forces of the Government.
JURY REACHES 'VERDICT
BAILIFF ACCEPTS SEALED MISSIVE
AND JCRYMES GO HOME.
Judge Gets Surprise When lie Reads
We Cannot Agree on Verdict for
j Either Plaintiff or Defendant."
Anyone who has ever served on a
Jury in the Circuit Court can appre
ciate this incident.
Court attaches still are puzzled by it.
They are not quite sure whether it was
an unwitting mistake of members of a
jury panel or a clever ruse.
The Wilberg-Oppegard Investment
Company was suing the New Amster
dam Casualty Company in the court of
Circuit Judge Tucker, involving the
validity of a certain bond. Arguments
concluded Saturday afternoon and the
jury was Instructed to retire and de.
liberate upon its verdict. It was not
to report until it"" had reached a ver
diet, but if was stipulated by the at
torneys in the case that, in case a de
cision was reached after court had
adjourned for the night a sealed ver
dict could be submitted, to be read
Monday, and the jury discharged.
At 10:55 Saturday night the jurors
summoned Bailiff MacBratney.
"We have reached a verdict and we
want to go home," they told him, hand
ing over a sealed envelope containing
This seemed satisfactory and the Jury
was released for the night.
Judge Tucker opened the verdict
Monday to find to his astonishment
that.it read: "We the jury in the above
entitled action cannot agree on a ver
diet for either plaintiff or defendant.'
A "hung" Jury was expected to con
tinue deliberations and to attempt to
reach an agreement until released by
order of the judge.

SISAL MONOPOLY BLAMED

Yucatan Concern Which Controls
Supply Declared Responsible.
Prosecution Is Doubtful.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 10. The Inter
national Harvester Company and other
American manufacturers of - binder
twine have been exonerated of re
sponsibility for its increased price in
the report of the Senate special com
mittee, which investigated the Yucatan
"There was no evidence," says the
report, "showing, that the American
manufacturer is responsible for the in
creased price of binder twine, but, on
the contrary, it is conclusively shown
that the price is based on the cost of
the raw material."
CHICAGO. Jan. 10. (Special.) Cyrus
H. McCormick, president of the Inter
national Harvester Company, gave out
tonight the following interview:
"I have before me a telegraphic sum
mary with direct quotations from the
report unanimously rendered by the
Senate subcommittee which spent sev
eral months last year investigating the

"This report, signed by Senators
Ransdell. of Louisiana; Gronna, of
North Dakota, and Wadsworth of New
York, finds, in effect, that the grain
farmers of the United States are being
taxed $12,000,000 a year increased cost
of their binder twine, solely througli
the operations of a foreign monopoly
financed and made effective by a com
bination of American bankers.
"It shows plainly that neither the In
ternational Harvester Company nor any
other American twine manufacturer is
or has been in any degree responsible
for the increase of the price of binder
twine, but that it Is wholly due to the
control of the sisal production by 'the
Yucatan monopoly, financed by Amer
ican capital. v
"The report recommends to the De
partment of Justice such action as the
facts developed by the subcommittee's
inquiry warrant. It also recommends
such representation by the State De
partment to the de facto government of
Mexico as may relieve American agri
culture from the excessive increases in
the price of binder twine imposed by
the Yucatan monopoly.
"Before the Yucatan monopoly be
came effective through its financial
support by American bankers, the av
erage price of sisal fiber over a long
period was bib cents a pound. The
present price ia 14 H cents.

'The report says in part:
' "As this monopoly is beyond " the
territory of the United States, it is dif
ficult to see how it can be reached,
though possibly the actions of its

n the purview of our anti-trust laws.
The - . Pan-American Commission
Corporation (the company formed by
Chicago, New York and New Orleans
bankers to finance the Yucatan mo

they have been violated. Without the
aid of these 'American bankers, wno
kept $10,000,000 constantly at the dis
posal of the Comision Reguladora
(the Yucatan concern), it would have
been unable to effect and carry out its
monopolistic combination to control the
sisal market and fix the price regard
less of the law of supply and demand

It is to be hoped that this report
and further action by the Government
may result in bringing relief to the
