NEW YORK. Oct. 15-When the ship
building Investigation was begun today
Frederick Seward, formerly one of the di
rectors of the United States Shipbuilding
company and an employe of the Corpora
tion Trust company, was called to the
Gt.ind. He became a director of the ship
building company In 1902, at the request
of Mr. Dcmlng of Alexander ft Green. The
witness could not sy why Dcmlng wanted
him to act. The witness ssld he acted as
on Incorporator for from fifty to seventy
five companies, while lie was employed by
the Corporation Trust company. He had
act-d as director of ten of the fifteen com
panlfs. Mr. t'termyer examined Mr. Seward at
length as to the circumstances attending
the issue to lilm of a temporary certifi
cate of stock, upon which lie qualified as

that the bonilholdfra of the receiver may
attack the legality of the acts of the first
board. These acts Include the Increase of
the capital stock and the acquirement of
the constituent companies. The witness
sa-id that lie personally paid nothing for
his share of stock, and he did not know if
anyone else had paid for it. He under
stood, however, that the share of stock be
longed to him.' He endorsed the share of
stock In blank and surrendered It to one
of the employes of the Corporation Trust
company, receiving no pay. He did not
know what became of It.
I'rocrecflags Were nictated.
In answer to Mr. Utermeyer. Mr. Stew
ard testified that he understood a "dummy'
director to be a "temporary" director and
throughout the examination the witness
insisted, on referring to himself as a "tem
porary" director. There was a sharp
wranglo between counsel occasioned by the
witness handing Mr. Guthrie his sub
poena in order to chow that he was one
of the complainants witnesses. Mr. T'ter
moyer protested that Mr. Guthrie had no
right to take .the paper, and Mr. Guthrie
Insisted that the record show the character
of the paper given him. The witness said
he had seen Mr. Demlng of Alexander
Green several times while acting as direc
tor, but could not recall any of their con
versation. He was given the minutes of
the first directors' meeting before the meet
ing was held. The minutes were a resume
of what was to be done. They Included
nJI of the documents and resolutions ready
to be passed. The proceedings were put
through without change. The witness said
that he and his co-directors voted for the
acceptance of the offer contained In th
Seward said be had never heard of John
W. Toung before that meeting. He also
paid that lie did not at that time know
the business of the Hyde Windlass com
pany. Aside from the papers he knew
nothing of the Canada company. He ac
cepted the papers that were submitted
to him because they came from reliable
He did not know of the firm of Moore
& Sons and did not know whether he
had voted to acquire their plant while he
was acting as director of the shipbuilding
company. The witness said he had placed
no valuation on the plants separately.
He said he had. however, placed a val

Mr. Ctermeyer asked him how he could
value the whole If he had not valued the
plants. The witness said he had tsken the

Mr. Seward was continued on the stand
when the hearing went on In the afternoon
and Mr ftermeyer sought to show that
he voted as a director simply as he was
told by the attorneys of the corporation
and that he had possessed no knowledge
as to the value of the 'several properties
which he voted to purchsse. The witness
would not admit that he had blindly fol
lowed Instructions while a director and

judgment dictated, accepting the assurance

When the witness passed to the other
side for cross-examination Mr. Guthrie

holders and the directors, and the wit
ness, reading from them, recited the sev
eral elections snd changes af officers made
by the company and then the books, with
a copy of the original proposal made by
John W. Toung.' were offered In evidence.
Redirect examination of Seward brought
out th fact that for his services as director
for the shipbuilding company he had been
paid the sum of 130. Iter, when Mr. Vn
termyer asked him If be would have voted

Guthrie had objected to the question aa Im
material and in the end it was agreed to
certify the question to the court after coun
sel had exchsnged sarcaam on th subject.
Did Nat Pay for Shares.
Horace S. Oould of the Corporation Trust
company, who said that he had acted as in
corporator for lou or more companies, was
the uext witness. He had two shares of
stock in the shipbuilding company, but did
not pay for them himself. He said that he
had no personal Interest In the company and
that he had probably had the two aharea of
stock long enough to endorse them and
hand them back to the Corporation Trust
Kenneth McLaren, secretary of the Cor
poration Trust company, was the next wit
ness of the day. He said that his corpora
tion had five directors, but could only name
three of them. He was sure, however that
neither Max Pam nor Charles M. Schwab
had any Interest in the concern. He was
one of the incorporators of the shipbuilding
company, but could not tell who had asked
him to become an incorporator. He had two
shares of stock, but did not pay for them
