SERVED QN MORGAN
Financier Subpenaed by a
Rus-e in the Power Case.
MUCH TO HIS LAWYER'S DISGUST
Procc Server Sccnred Admission to
Morgan RenideHce on Uaderstaad-
lagr That He Had Cerae From
NEW YORK, March 22. Concerning the
service of a subpena on J. PJerpont Mor
gan In the suit of Peter Power against
the Northern Pacific Railroad Company,
Francis Lynde Stetson, counsel for Mr.
Morgan, today made the following state
ment: "In several of the newspapers of this
morning have appeared Items suggesting
that the counsel representing Peter Power
In his suit against the Northern Pacific
Railway Company have found or antici
pated some difficulty In securing the at
tendance as a wtlneys of either J. P.
Morgan or some member of his firm.
Any such suggestion, whether or not so
Intended, Is unfounded. Mr. Perkins, of
the firm, has already appeared and been
examined. Mr. Steele, of the firm, was
ready to appear yesterday at the time ap
pointed, but his examination "was post
poned, r.dt at his request, but at the re
quest of Judge Lancaster.
"Yesterday afternoon Mr. Morgan re
turned to the city, from which he had
been absent during the pendency of these
proceedings, of which he knew nothing
until Thursday at Washington. Immedi
ately upon learning of the desire for his
examination he instructed me to advise
Mr. Power's counsel that he would at
tend at any time without subpena. At
once I so advised the counsel, who an
swered that this would be entirely sat
isfactory, and accordingly we arranged
for Mr. Morgan's voluntary appearance
"Apparently because of the Inability of
the counsel to reach Ills process service,
for which miscarriage he has written to
me expressing regret, Mr. Morgan was
nerved last evening with a subpena by
a messenger who obtained admission to
his residence upon the understanding of
Mr. Morgan Ithat the messenger had
come from my office a statement for
which Mr. Power's counsel disclaims any
responsibility, and expresses regret If any
such statement was made.
"It may be a matter of news, but It
hardly can be a matter of general satis
faction, that admission to the private
house of any gentleman should be ob
tained, as stated In this morning's paper,
by a ruse, which, of course, means by
deception. In any case, such a proceeding
would be one for which reputable counsel
naturally would desire to disclaim respon
sibility. In this cose any such proceed
ing was unnecessary."
George Alfred Lamb, of counsel for
Peter Power, made the following state
"I accept responsibility for the Bervice
made upon Mr. Morgan, and the manner
in which It was made. I had good reason
to believe that Mr. Morgan would not
willingly accept service, arid In making
service In the maimer In which he did, the
process-server employed by me merely ful
filled his duty as a process-server. I
had previously endeavored to arrange with
Francis H. Kellogg, general counsel for
the Northern Pacific Railroad Company,
that witnesses in the cas6 of Power
against the Northern Pacific Railroad
Company should be produced without serv
ice f subpena, and at times might be
mutually agreed on. Although Mr. Kel
logg in the first instance agreed with
Judge Lancaster and myself In Minneap
olis that he would endeavor to arrange
this, he subsequently announced his fail
ure to do so, and notified me that I must
obtain the testimony of witnesses as best
"It therefore became my duty to my
HIeht to use every means of vigilance to
have service made upon witnesses whose
testimony I desired. Until 4:30 yesterday
afternoon I had received no notification
that Mr. Morgan would voluntarily tes
tify, but I had been led to believe that
he would not testify unless ho was duly
subpenaed. It Is regrettable that upon re
ceipt of this notification I was unable to
recall all my subpena service, but I don't
agree with the conclusions reached by
Mr. Stetson. There are no ethics about
this service. When a lawyer gives a
process-server a paper to serve, it be
comes the duty of the process-server to
serve the paper entrusted to him, with the
least delay and In any manner that pre
sents itself. It is perfectly Justifiable for
a process-server to make service In any
manner and by any means, and I cer
tainly will not repudiate the act of a man
vho was employed by me and who sought
to serve me zealously.

SALEM, March 22. In spite of a cold
rain, driven before a heavy wind, polit
ical workers were quite active on the
streets of Salem today. This being the
last Saturday before the county conven
tion, many delegates were In the city, and
the various- candidates were consequently
busy. Candidates for county offices were
most in evidence. The general opinion is
that the Legislative ticket will be selected
with regard to the Senatorial preferences
of the candidates, and that the slate will
be agreed upon by the political leaders be
fore It Is put before the convention. For
this reason, the candidates for Legislative
honors are not buttonholing delegates, but
are working with the leaders.

these two men will get the nomination,
though the geographical distribution of
county offices might affect this contest so
as to bring out a new candidate who
could take a prominent place. There are
two county officers who hold over an
other two years. They are County Super

The candidates for the offices of Sheriff

tke Murder of Brooks.
NEW YORK. March 22. Florence
Burns, the young Brooklyn woman who
has been In the custody of the police
of this city since February 15, under
suspicion of knowing how "Walter Brooks
met his death, was discharged from
custody by Justice Mayer tonight
Brooks, who was a young commission
merchant here, had been keeping com
pany with Florence Burns. He was found
dead tho night of February 14. In a room
at the Glen Island Hotel. The gas In
the room was turned on and there was
a bullet-wound in the head. The District
Attorney tried to show that Florence
was likely to have killed Brooks because
he was trying to break oft his associa
tion with her. The defense advanced the
suicide theory and ror several days
Justice Mayer has been examining the
two theories. He finally decided, when
the hearing closed tonight that nothing
had been brought out suRlclent to hold
Florence Burns to the grand Jury. After
her discharge she returned to her home
At the hearing this afternoon Attorney
Backus, representing the Burns girl,
made his argument, contending there
was not an Iota of evidence to show that
his client was connected with the death
of Brooks. Assistant District Attorney
Schurman followed In an .argument In
tended to cast suspicion on the girl, hold
ing that there was plenty of circumstan
tial evidence on which to bring her case
to the attention of the grand jury.
Justice Mayer at once gave his decision,
in which he reviewed all the evidence
and held that nothing had been brought
out by the state sufficient for him to
hold the girl for trial In the criminal
branch of the Supreme Court JusUce
Mayer Is of the Special Sessions Court
and sat as an examining magistrate.
' Ruth Dunn, the young woman on whose
account it Is alleged. Brooks wished to
break oft his relations with Florence
Burnp, testified that she saw "Walter
Brooks on the Monday, Tuesday and
"Wednesday evenings before his death. At
the request of Attorney Backus, for the
defense, her evidence was stricken from
tho record. Mr. Backus moved that cer
tain statements- made by his client to de
tectives be stricken from the record, be
cause she had not been Informed of her
rights when the statements were made.
Assistant District Attorney Schurman
opposed this motion, but Justice Mayer
granted It, saying he had searched care
fully for a precedent where the state
ment of a defendant, when not Informed
of the charge against him or her, had
been used as evidence and had failed to
find one -such case. Justice Mayer said ho
fOund no warrant In law for the question
ing of a prisoner by a police officer before
the prisoner had been arraigned before
a Police Magistrate or Informed of his
Mr. Schurman said he hoped the court
would make It possible to have that view
thoroughly tested. "It Is going to work
the greatest Innovation In the system lft
vogue," ho added, "not only the "City
of New York, but In the entire country.
Thousands or cases have been decided In
court here on statements made by pris
oners to officers berore the arraignment."
Justice Mayer said the system might
have been established by custom, but as
long as there was no warrant ror It In
the law, custom could have no force. The
Justice alBO declared that there was no
