Universal Service Correspondent.
Washington, Dec. 4.—Formal public
hearings on the Keller resolution for
impeachment of Attorney General
Daugherty will be started by the
House Judiciary committee Tuesday
morning, December 12. at 10 o'clock.
The committee in response to the
demand of Representative Keller ob
tained by special resolution Monday
afternoon power to subpena wit
nesses, administer oaths and requiie
the (submission of documents and
papers in the files of the department
of Justice requested by the author of
the Impeachment charges.
The resolution was offered by
Chairman Volstead. The vote was
This course of procedure was de
termined upon by the committee nfter
an acrimonious 40-minute session, at
which Representative Keller and his
counsel, Jackson H. Ralston, of
Washington, had flatly refused to:
proceed with the offering of testi
mony until authority to make the
hearings official was obtained.
First among the 14 specific charges
presented to the committee by Repre
sentative Keller will be the group
dealing with alleged refusal and neg
lect by Attorney General Daugherty
to enforce anti-trust laws, particu
larly in cases referred to the depart
ment of Justice for action by the fed
eral trade commission.
Besides the evidence turned over
to the department of justice by the
commission charging violations of
these statutes by more than 30 cor
porations, which Mr. Keller asserted
would be sufficient to substantiate
these specifications. Mr. Ralston sub
mitted the names of these two wit
nesses, whom he asked to have sub

Daugherty Issues Denial.
Daugherty Sunday sent a scorching,
defiant 'denial to every charge con
tained in Representative Keller's
charge of impeachment now beforem
He declared that radicals and war
grafters are engineering the case in
nr. effort to learn what the depart
ment of justice has against them and
flatly declined to submit to the com
mittee the documents asked for.
He strenuously defended his action
ir. asking for a sweeping injunction
during the railway strike. He said
that the conditions at the time left
him no other course. To the question
of influence of the Morgan interests
he said that wealth in no way influ
enced him and had nothing to do with
Regarding Morse Case.
Mr. Daugherty declared that the
case of C. W. Morse, indicted for
shipping fraiftls, was directed by and
still is under the direction of the
I United States shipping board. His
I role in this is entirely formal, he says.
He brands as “knowingly false anjl
untrue” the charge that he failed to
act against the so-called dye trust.
There are 14 specifications In the in
dictment and Mr. Daugherty treats
with each in a detailed denia*.
In refusing to submit the dope- ‘
ment records in.130 cases, inclu
the reports of the bureau of inves
tlon, all correspondence and docu
ments, he said It ‘‘would be violative
of the rights of those whose confi
dence, as muny of these reflect, were
given to the government upon the ex
press understanding that the confi
dence would not be violated.”
Alleges Plot of Antis.
"Certain important matters which
involve the vital interests of the gov
ernment,” he says, "are now in pro
cess of presentation to the proper
tribunals, praying for relief.”
Mr. Daugherty concludes:
"The attorney general cannot es
cape the conclusion that the sole ob
ject and purpose of the proceeding
Is not to remove him from office, but
is in the nature avowedly an attempt
to compel the publication and the
disclosure in advance of the evidence
upon which the government relied
ar:d must rely in the prosecution and
investigation of cases of the greatest
importance to the government."

BLOC TO TEST
First Clash in New Congress
Likely to Come Over Rural
Credits Legislation — Con
firmation of Butler Blocked.
Washington, Dec. 4 (U. P.)—The
newly formed progressive bloc will
face Its first test In the session of
congress which met at noon Monday.
Rural credits legislation is be
enacted this winter. Other measures
dealing with the welfare of the farm
ers are probable.
Under the leadership of Senator
Watson, Indiana, Harding adminis
tration forces have worked out an
agricultural program which will be
presented by President Harding,
probably in his annual message on
Tuesday or later.
First Test of Power.
The progressives also have an agri
cultural program, dlferring In es
sential particulars from that pro
posed by the administration. The first
test of progressive power therefore,
probably will come upon this matter.
The progressives do not expect too
much at this session. They will not
reach their full strength in either
house until after March 4. They are,
however, powerful enough in the sen
ate to put up a sturdy fight for their
What appenrs likely to happen is
compromise legislation, in which
some administration ideas and some
progressive ones will appeap. The
progressives are not opposed to the
proposed administration plan, but
they hold it does not go far enough,
nor hit directly at the cause of agri
cultural Ills. They would gladly take
the administration bill or .bills with
out change rather than get nothing
for the farmer.
Both the congressional and public
groups of progressives will plunge at
once at the work outlined at the Fri
day and aSturday conferences here.
Session Lasts to March 4. f
With a brief 10 minute interval,
congress Monday ended its extraor
dinary session and at noon entered
upon Its regular December session. It
is the fourth assembling of the GTtli
congress, and Its last. The session
will last until March 4, when the
present congress expires by law.
Preparatorv to the main routine of
business of the- session—passage of
appropriation bills for all govern
ment departments—President Hard
ing transmitted his budget message,
setting forth the needs of the govern
ment as complied by the budget bur
eau. This message was a letter from
Mr. Harding transmitting the recom
mendations of Budget Director Lord.
It was read in both houses.
Regular Message Later.
The president's annual legislative
message will be read in person be
fcie a Joint session of Houso and
Senate tomorrow or possibly later in
the week. This message is looked up
on as one of the most important to
which Mr. Harding has addressed
himself, as he must now meet a
strengthened progressive bioc. with
a legislative program which It will
insist upon, even if that calls for
sidetracking measures sought by the
