of Missouri to oust the Standard Oil com
pany of Indiana; the Waters-Pierce Oil
company and the Republic Oil company
from Missouri and prevent the carrying
out of an alleged pooling agreement among
the coin panics mentioned was begun here
today before Frederick W. Sanborn, a spe
chil commissioner appointed by Governor
Folk. Herbert' 8. Hadley, attorney general
of Missouri, conducted the state's case and
attempted to show from the witnesses In
troduced that the Waters-Pierce and Re
public companies were In reality but sub
sidiary concerns of the Standard Oil com
latny, the Indiana branch of which non
ducts the Standard's business tn the west.
During today's healing there were a
number of lively,' tilts between opposing
lawyers, one resulting In a demand by the
attorneys for the defendant companies
that the testimony be taken down verbatim

that he could remain at the hearing as

any questions Involving the Standard OH

had no other reason for doing so. The other

CAGE STANDS WITH SHAW
Former Secretary of Traurj Appro!
Currency Plan af 6tcce$or.
WOULD SLIGHTLY MODIFY SUGGESTION
Frank A. anilerli Thinks Mr.
PrhlaTe Reninrka Do ol Refer
tn the Immediate Situa
tion In Markets.
NEW YORK. Jan. 5 Ionian J. Uage,
former secretary of the treasury, said to
day that he agrees with Jacob H. Schlff
In the opinion that a great panic 4s Inevita
ble unless steps are taken to remedy the
inelasticity of the existing currency sys
tem. "I aaree nositivelv with Mr. SchifT." "aid
Mr. Oage. "that the monetary conditions I
which have existed In this country du-in !
the last six days arc disgraceful to us as a J
nation and I further agree with him that
a stunning panic is lint a matter of time
Unless something Is done. The more
promptly and effectually this Is done the
better for us.
"In my opinion there Is no Immediate
danger, but the danger Itself Is apparent,
and If the country sits passive tinder exist
ing circumstances the country will suffer.
1 don't understand bow any thoughtful
financier can fall to recognise the peril.
"I see Mr. Schlff objects to Secretary
Shaw's recommendation of an emergency
circulation of heavily taxed bank notes,
holding that such a plan would facilitate
speculation rather than the legitimate In
terests which stand In need at present. I
may say that I believe Secretary Shaw's
Idea an excellent one with certain modi
fications. With these modifications I be
lieve bis proposition would provide a cure.
I on Record.
"I do not care In the short space of a
newspaper Interview to go Into details,"
continued Mr. Gage. "My views today are
views which I have entertained a long i
while views which are embodied in re
ports made by me as secretary of the
treasury and in bills already offered In
congress. I believe the work of securing
proper legislation to relieve the present
circulation conditions is a high public duty
of the president a ery high duty."
Frank A. Vanderllp, vice president of the
National City bank, said today he believed
Mr. Schlff's speech had no application to
the Immediate situation. "Had Mr. Schlff
thought," said Mr. Vanderlip. "that there
was any present danger he certainly would
not have regarded this as an appropriate
time to call public attention to that danger.
He Is undoubtedly right that In some time
our Illogical currency system will cause
trouble. It hus caused trouble In the last
fix weeks, but the Indications are that the
trouble ts alfout over."
A. Rarton Hepburn, president of the
Chase National bank and former comp
troller of the currency, criticised Mr.
Bchiffa plan as being Impracticable and
"Certainly something has to be done."
he ndded. "We have no government bank
to fall back on and some way of Improv
ing present conditions must be found."
Schlff Ksplalna His Plan.
When Jacob H. Schlff was Informed this
afternoon that his plan has been criticised
as Impracticable he said that perhaps he
had not made himself thoroughly under-
He said he had no Idea of trying to in
flate the currency by issuing paper money
agalnst the commercial paper already In
the banks, but his Idea was merely to
make more secure tho plan nlready advo
cated by Secretary Shaw.
Mr. Shaw's plan, he said, was a proposal
to let each national bank Issue fin per rent
more currency than It now issued without
any aecurity whatever.
Mr. Pchlff said he merely wished to have
that extra B0 per cent of currency secured
by the commercial paper in the hunks.
Mr. Beh'.ff adds that lie would not to' to
work out the details of the general plan
he had In mind But he reltrrated that un
less some sound scheme of stretching tin
currency In times of need were found by
the national government the next panic
would be a disaster worse than the United
States ever bef re experienced.

sent word by a near friend that, although
she felt keenly the humiliation to which
she had been subjected, she proposed to
allow the matter to (1 op. The further in
formation wus conveyed that her husband,
Dr. Morris, will reach here tomorrow from
Ohio. Mrs. Morris wus charged in the
police court today with disorderly conduct.
Instead of apiiearing for trial, however,
she did not ansaer to her name, and the
$5 collateral which was put up for her at
the house of detention was declared for
feited. In a statement made tudu.r by Assistant
Secretary U. I-'. Raines ut the White House
concerning the ejectment of Mrs. Morris
yesterday from the executive offices Mr.
Barnes stated that after Mrs. Morris' ar
rest nhe produced an envelope, ar'nt i i-hsccl
to the president, which she asked to have
delivered to him. This envelope was found
to contain a lengihy poem on the aubject
of Insomnia, which she said was her own
composition. She stated to the officers
that nlie had nut slept for seven iilKhis
past. The statement concludes as follows.
"There is no truth whatever in the state
ment niuilc by many of this morning's pa
pers that a negro laid hold of Mrs. Morris
and assisted, in carrying her. One of the
colored messengers of the office followed
the policemen and gathered up such small
articles as were dropped in the woman's
struggles, but there was no other founda
