to meet mo. I made an appointment to
meet him. At 11 o'clock Mr. Cravath came
and said Ryan was sorry he had to pro
ceed without me. I told Mr. Cravath I
considered this an act of bad faith, turned
my back on Cravath and walked away.
Mr. Ryan later asked me to come to his
office on Monday and meet Mr. Root.
Root Insists on Trnatees.
"In that interview with Cravath he told
me that Mr. Root had Insisted on the ap
pointment of the trustees of the Equitablo 1
at once and the announcement in the
morning papers. That was the first in
timation that Mr. Ryan had asked the
trustees to act. I want you all to under
stand that I have something besides life
insurance to do and think of. My mind
was on the 35,000 miles of railroads and
thirty-five to forty steamships which I
have to take care of. I wanted only to
safeguard the Equitable. Mr. Ryan did
not tell me at the first Interview what he
paid for tho Hyde stock.
"At the next Interview Root and Cra
vath were present. I said to Ryan, 'You
want my co-operation?' He said, 'Yes.
I said, 'I will take half of your stock pro
vided you will agree to the appointment
of two additional trustees who will be
absolutely independent.' Ryan refused
and told me I had promised to
help him if I was satisfied. 1 I said this
was my way of being satisfied. I do not
remember what else I said. I may have
said what these gentlemen say I did. I
Intended, unless I was satisfied of his mo
tives, to oppose his control of the society
knd thought It ought to be stopped. I
knew whom he had selected as trustees,
but did not know his plan to divest him
self of control of the stork."
"Why did you object?" asked Mr.
"I wanted two trustees Independent of
Mr. Ryan. I think that any trustees
named as Mr. Ryan named them must be
to a certain extent under Ida control, espe
cially as he had named a man out of his
I own organisation aa president. I did not
! demand a light to name two trustees, but
able has yet come to my attention," he
said, "and I have not had time to attend
to It. if anything hud come to my atten
tion I should have acted."
"What Is your political InP.lience?"
"It is such as any man of prominence
has who has never asked any one to do
anything Improper. I have great Interests
in New York and am often consulted."
Mr. Harrlman said that when a move
was on foot to give the control of the
Equitable to James W. Alexander and his
friends by means of legislative action at
Albany, he wired certain persons at Albany
to keep him informed as to the progress
such proceedings might make.
Wonld Spare Friends.
Asked wno these persons at Albany were,
Mr. Harrlman asked that he be excused
from answering. He said ho did not want
to answer because he uld not want to give
occasion for sensational newspaper head
lines. The committee and counsel, Mr
Hughes, retired for consultation. Mr. Har
rlman said he would like to consult be
The committee decided, however, that he
should answer and he d d so, saying that
the persona from whom he had requested '
the iniormatlon were Oovcrnor HlgKina and
the late Senator Nixon of the assemoly.
After Mr. -Harrlman had answered con
cerning Governor Hlggins and Speaker
Nixon, Senator Armstrong, chairman of
the committee, said:
"We are sorry you gave such an sir of
mystery to this matter, as we all know
such Inquiries are regular and common.'
Before an enthusiastic audience, which
filled the First Methodist Episcopal church
lost evening, the. West Des Moines High
school went down to defeat at the hands of
the Omaha orators. The question, "Re
solved, That American municipalities should
own and operate their street railways,"
was timely and Interesting and was handled
In a thorough and scholarly manner.
The Iowa debaters, supporting the afflnn--Ulre.
Were Fred Baer. John Orebell and
lfred Sanborn. Omaha was represented
by Herbert Potter, Glenn Wallerstedt and
John Latenser. Principal Waterhouse was
master of ceremonies. A stirring number
by the cadet band and an admirably ren
dered selection by the "octet" opened the
frogram. After these preliminaries were
dlpoed of Mr. Bner of Des Moines com
menced Actual hostilities. Thlt champion
of municipal ownership declared that the
public ownership of gas, water and electric
light facilities had been a success, and. In
Europe at least, street railways hod proved :
no less adaptable to. that system. Massa
chusetts waa Introduced aa an example of
public control; the alternative for munici
palization and the system there was as
serted to be unsatisfactory. From that
moment the contest revolved more or less
upon tho "hub of the universe."
EtIIs Are Admitted.
Mr. Potter, who followed for Omaha, ad
mitted the evils of the present condition,
but stoutly maintained that state control
waa the better remedy. American experi
ments In municipalization of transportation
systems have all been failures. Massachu
setts, assertions to the contrary notwlth
rtandlng, Is a forcible example of the feasi
bility of state control. Stock watering has
been prevented, the facilities have been Im
proved and a large part of the profits have
been turned Into the coffers of the people.
Mr. John Orebell then took the floor and
explained that the few failures which have
resulted from publlo ownership were the
work of grasping corporations who 'would
not keep "hands off." The banner of
Massachusetts was once more dragged Into
the dust, where It lay In disgrace, until
rescued and reholsted by the next speaker
on the negative. After he had somewhat
dazed the audience by charts of statistics
concerning "kilowatt hours," etc., Mr.
Grebell demonstrated that in "Bonny
Qleega" municipal ownership haa been an
Glenn Wallerstedt spent most of his time
In ably explaining that the experiment of
municipalization Is still in such an embry
otlo state that conclusions In favor of it
are hasty and unwarranted.
Tho determination of corporations to con
trol the controllers was brought forward
by Alfred Sanborn to show that state
supervision would fail. Once more the resi
dents of the Plymouth Rock state were
tumbled from their pedestal of pristine
purity and the stock of their street rail
way company, upon another re -examination,
was found td contain an undue
amount of molsttlre. Brooklyn bridge waa
offered as a concrete example of public
ownership, but that Illusion was shattered
when John Latenser, who followed, pointed
out that In 1R99 It was sold to a private
' Latenser Warmly Greeted.
The appearance of Mr. Latenser waa the
occasion of prolonged applause. He an
swered the analogy of Oreat Britain by
calling attention to the fact that British

He raised the question as to whether Presi
