WAPIIIMITO.V , April 10. The announce *
Itii nl that Attorney General Garland xxas to
appear before the telephone Inxestigallon
committee caused a laigonudlonccthls morn
ing. It xvas neatly tluee-qiiarters of an hour
nftci the it-gular hour of meeting xvhcn the
attorney general appeared , looking paloand
rather weak. With a cointeous salute to
thu .committee , ho Immediately took the
eland , and , on imitation of the cliahnmn ,
bean ! to make a statement of his connection
with the Pnn-Klettrlo company. Ho wished
ho said , to lay before the committee audio-
alllnn the mattei contained In his statement
to the pie-ildent on Oct. bth last.
In addition Mi. Gailand xxished to explain
two 01 tlueo points of that statement. In
rebtuaiy , Ibb3 , Gciiuial Atkins Bald to wit
ness lie bolluxed Hitler's inxentlonsuio all
of gieat utility 11 piopeily handled. Buim ;
n iiool man like hlmse.il , Atkins desired wit
ness to enter Into this. "Hold him , " said
wltnuis , "that i hid nuxui undei taken to
make any money except by laxv and poker.
1 always lost at pokoi ami guneially won at
law. Ixxas willing to go into this If it ot
tered any Inducement. " Continuinir , witness
bald that Sunatoi Hauls luado.snbstantiallj
the same statement about thu Inventions , and
two 01 Ihieu da > s aflerwaid ho ( xvituuss ) liad
been Intnduceil to Kodgeis nnd Ills son at
their home. Ho brlelly told of their orgau-
1/ing tlio Pun-Electric Telephone com
pany , ns detailed by Senator Hauls
and olhei xxllntbscs ami then tinned Ids at
tention to tlm applications made to htm to
bring suit against the Bell company. It xxas
an InlPiutite , and not a taut , ho said , that the
I'.m-Elocfilc company hud in itlu application.
The Inluieiicu was founded on two reasons :
I'iibt , that Colonel Young e.xmu xxlth otliei
gentlemen in the laltei pait of .lulx , and wit
ness kiu-xv him to be betittaiy anil treasnrt-i
ot tlm Pan-Electric ; second , bteaitbo witness
had on Maj U."i icccixod aluttci fiom Kodgeis
ieiiebting ( | thu suit to be hi ought ns
a stockholdct of the company. Coup-
line those Lvts toguthoi , witness took
it foi giantod tliat thu Pan-Ekctiic
had made aiiplication , but it xxas Mmplj in-
luiuntc , as no naiiio had been mentioned.
Witness had ticated Kodgei's litter as iiei-
Bonal , and hu knew Kodgeis had no author-
it } to ind\i > application that suth an appli
cation mustcomo tiom the piesldcnt ol the
tomp.iny. Thcietoie , the lettti had re
mained unanswcied and the puisonal papei
had not been bled. In .lull Van Bontliiijsen
lmlpii"-ontod his application toi suit , basing
It on tlm laxv , which , ho staled , had boon
passed at the last session of congiess. Wit
ness had he-aid ol thu law bufoio that , and
had some -ench made , but could not Hud the
ntt. 'llm applUation xxas so well wiitton nnd
appaiuutly set out the passage of the bill s-o
posillxely that xxltness felt them intiHt bo
homo mistake anil that the bill had become a
laxx' . The application hnd been rclontdby
witiiossto the inlcrioi dcpannicnr. wheiuft
should baxogono In tlm hist instance , and
witness beaid no mine of it until It xxab ic-
tuinullabt .lauuaivwlth otliei papers.
Altei mdvmg Van Bentliujsou's lottei ,
witness had not set to xx oik to examine into
the undid , foi , though lie had no intimation
totlmt uffce.1 , he was satisliod that appllea-
tlons would lie made. Looking oxei authori
ties ho coi eluded lie could not older thu suit ,
nnd w lien the gentlemen came , Van Hcnlliuj-
fecn , Vound and otht-is , 1m deteimined hu
would not touch it at all under any tlicum-
When witness was still In the senatu
Platt came to him xxitli a bill to atithoil/o
gox eminent suits , and asked Ids opinion of-
It. Witness hail looked It oxei , and legaidod
II asunnetuss.iiv that It would do no good.
Ti nt xvas all hu exei saxx or lit-.ud ot llio
bill until It had been hiou-lit to bis attention
thiough the application. In the earlx part ot
the tall Huinpliioys , of tlm Globu Telephone -
phone company , had called in on him nt the
derailment about the publication. "Ho
thought ho xxas going to jump
ox i r on me. " said the witness.
Humpliioxft Insisted that ho ( xxltness ) oidei
the suit , and had said that it was xoiv curious
tliat because hu ( witness ) xxas In nnotlici
compaii } that his ( Hinnphioj'b ) ilghtsshoulil
bo tllbiu aiitoil. "lio got mad because 1
would not do anything about it , " said tlio
witness , "and x\o patted not xxlth mu
tual u-spcct and admhatlon at all. "
\ \Vitne- denied that hi ) had oxer glxon an
opinion about him. Thu opinion ho had
Kixen was to thu cllect that tlm pan electric
inxentlons xxore not Inlilngiiments upon
telephones that xxeio dilleiently pntentablo
on a xxoll oigaul/od princlpfo. While a

oiity rcpoit xxas written by We.xxoi's assist
ant attotney , Hen Hall , who was left In
charge of thu case by Jtulijo Cook xxhcn ho

icre that Hall , instead of acting as a jtulge

special champion and attorney. Ho was

speech. Xcxei hax ing read the ex idente , ho
adopts Cook's views and Ineoipoiatos them

and clew ing nilsicpresentations. He gl\cs
