' As Mr: Hyde evaded .the summons to
appear before the committee for sev
eral months by remaining out of Ha
Jurisdiction, considerable cariosity was
exhtblted a to the outcome of Tils Cross
examination by AUerney 'Hughes.- He
' was called aftec John McOuuinesg had
. completed his testimony, and there was
a stir In the. room aa tne young f inancier
"'wnii'liworn.' He whs modlshly,' almost
foppishly dressed, and wore a boutono

'Americas was on the stsnd.Hyde.wak
accompanied by Attorney Samuel Ctterr
; meyer and appeared unconscious of itht
attention he atn-aoted. - .
' Hyde began with the. story of his
Ufa In the Equitable.- Replying to
queries by Inquisitor' Hughes he ex
plained his first connection wtth'.ths
Kqultablet He declared that he had been
' educated by bis father in the life insur
ance business and had been brought tup
to understand that ha would succeed his
father. He entered the service .of the
' Equitable In the fall of -tm as second
' vtca-presldent and felt through hlspre
vtoils training that ha. was quallfjod to
'fill the position."' He declined any ..sal
ary wben ha entered. In 1900 , ha' ac
cepted salary of $30,000 a year. .This
salary-Was continued until 1901, when It
was increased to S7S.000 a year. . - ;

Hyde stated that when his salary was
IncYeased ha waa ronde chairman of the
finance committee and given Increased
' duties. He Insisted that In both eases
his salary had been offered and ' In
creased without any auggeatton from

the executive committee, s . :
' Hyda was reminded by Hughes of the
' testimony of Senator Chauncey M.' De-
pew before Insurance Commlasioner
- Hendricks, in which the senstor was un
certain whether Hyda had asked for an
Increase, but thought that he did, and
also that ha aakad for more than Presi
dent Alexander waa drawing. Hyde
, could offer no explanation to Depew's
testimony. Mr, Hughes asked Hyde
If ha would have continued at 175.900 '
year If $100,000 had been refused him.
' ."Yes, because I didn't believe I could
get as much elsewhere,",, replied Hyde
amid laughter from the galleries.

Hyde said that he had been given au
thority to receive- money from.-the
cashier without other voucher than hla
own. He 'became a director of the
Kqiiltable Trust company previous to
' 1901 and vice-president of lt later, with
"a, salary of 15.000 which was later-increased
to $11,000. He claimed much of
the credit of building up the trust com
pany. Hyde discussed St. Itagth the ayndl

It was asserted today that the Har-

railway company to build a belt line
along the waterfront connecting the
Jefferson street road, owned by Harrt-

luttly jecessarr to the economical haul

for tha purpose of placing ths Harrl-

the opinion that thla Fourth street

Before many daya have passed there

Bruin, after several 'conferences, have
deckled to make a number of radical
changes, snd It Is known that their
recommendations are already filed with
Mayor Lane and will be laid before ths
police commission at the next meeting. .
The most Important of the' changes,
as scheduled, will consist- of reducing

quarters that a number of changes were
to be , recommended by Chief Grit'
maeher. Every member of the detective
force, ln anticipation of being selocted
for the ranks, has been quietly, at work
exercising "pulls'.' to offset the expected
action. The first definite news was
published in The Journal several days
ago. at which' time It was stated Ace
Welch, formerly, a patrolman, was
slated for tha detertlvs department and
that several detectives were to be placed
In uniform and assigned to heats.
. A few days afterward Welch waa
placed 'In plain clothes and later ap

up the east side of the Willamette

ths city limits, and the Jefferson street

the situation ef the Harrlman system
with reference to tha entire traffic of
the west side of the Willamette river
bt wean Portland and- CorvaUla, includ-.
ing the rich Yamhill, polk and Benton
counties, you will see the desirability
from the Harrlman point of view of se
curing that belt Una down ths Port
