In the Panama canal bill forbidding
railroad-owned ships from using the
canal, was made today before Hu
senato lobby Investigating commlttra
by P. T. Bowles, president of tho
Core Rivers Shipbuilding company at
Qulncy, Mass. Deknlght, Howies,
said, wroto him tho foltowln letter,
March 18, 1912:
"If you are Interested, I would be
glad to assist In attempting to bare
this provision kopt out of the bill.
Of course. I would want a retainer,
say $1000, and a contingent fee of
$4000 In the event of the provision
being kept out of the law."
Bowles said he accepted Oeknlght't
proposition and produced a letter to
Deknlght advising him to this ef
fect. Later, Dowles testified, De
knlght advised him by letter that he
had gotten In touch with Representa
tive Knowland of California, whom
he "knew qutto well" and who would
lead the fight against the provision.
Still later, according to Rowles,
Deknlght advised him that he prob
ably would bo unablo to prevent the
house from passing the clause, but
that he might keep the majority t
a minimum, so that If the senato
took a decided stand against tlm
measuro. tho house might recedo
from its position In conference.
Rowles also sworo that Deknlght
later wroto that ho knew of "certain
tactics" which might prevent the
measuro from ever reaching a vote
in the senate
Rowles also admitted that he had
employed Deknlght even before the
pendency of the canal bill. De
knight's duty, ho said, was to keep
him posted on the tolls question.
Explaining tho $4000 contingent
fee, Rowles said. "It was only a
gamble. I would not have, proposed
such a plan."
Rowles, who Is a former admiral
In the United States navy, denied
that ho had resigned from the navy
becauso of charges lodged against
him. Ho admitted that he waa em
ployed by tho "shiu-bullding trust"
to make various appraisals of ship
yards before he left the navy I sor

do so," Tho witness admitted that
