Attoiney Walsh for the defenso today
The big feature of Fleming's testimony
that Dr. Hyde's attorneys would hresk

Colonel Swope, to swell Mrs. Hyde's In

the testimony of Fleming were futile.
After an hour on the stand he was ex

man Swope, was called. The defense im
mediately objected to the testimony as

apartment last June they fired In self

show that In the case of Miss Graham
he was the pursuer and not, as Stokes,
Intimated, the pursued. ,

Is searching for a solution of tno pres
ent trust problem in the I'nltcd States.
Big corporations are essential to the
development of the country anu tne
maintenance of business prosperity, he
said. To prevent their misusing the
enormous power that comes with wealth
and control of Industrial agencies, he
thought the government should take con
trol of them, through a corporation or
trade commission with absolute power to
regulate their affairs. Add to this a clear
law as to what can and what cannot be
done; the strong light of publicity on all
the affairs of corporations tend the elimi
nation of presidential and other political
Issues from tho business world and the
"unrest" that has spread over the United
States will largely disappear, said Mr.
The coming election is already disturb
ing business, he added. He said members
of the courts ought to be appointed for
life; that the president ought .to Ve
elected for eight years without the prlv
tlego of re-election, so that he would be
In a "position and frame of mind" where
he would not he tempted to "look In any
direction or toward apr Interests" in
seeking re-election. '
Tnlks of PollUcnl Sitnatlon,
Mr. aGry dwelt at length upon the
political situation. He said : he had no
particular president in mind,' but that he
believed fewer elections and less rea
son for seeking public or private support
for political purpose would aid greatly in
keeping business at a Jevel. At the pres
ent time, he said, there 'was a great cur
tailment of business activity because of
the approaching election. ,
Judge Gary recommended the federal
license of corporations; ther control by
a trude commission; publicity of all their
affairs nd the sanction o( certain; acta
which the commlsgioij mght conslderuot
to dip refitranit of trade."
He promised to appear again before the
committee next week.
"How would tho commission know
whether an agreement among steel men
to fix the price of rails at $2S was 'ro
ut rain t of trade?' " asked Senator Cum
"It would soot' become competent to
know that," returned Judge Gary, "as
the interstate commerce commission has
become competent to decide whether rates
are Just and reasonable."
He declared unrestricted competition
meant the ruin- of the snlalt Individual
or concern and the gradual strengthening
of the natural monopoly of the larger.
As opposed to this he urged' that the gov
ernment recognize the need of partial
agreements between corporations and In
dividuals, so that an active competition
might still be maintained that would be
fair and free to all Interests,
'Is there any particular thing now
clearly forbidden by the Sherman law
that you think ought to be permitted?"
asked Mr. Cummins.
Mr. Gary thougnt not, but he Bald the
business difficulty lay In deciding before

The famous "Gary dinners" where steel
men gathered to dUcuss their affairs were
not to fix prices, but to disclose their
business Condition to each other, he said.
"Every gentleman there, it he was a

knowledge of his competitors' affairs am?
could shape his business so aa not to ruin

He added that he had not dared even

TAFT TALKS FRENCHMAN
President Interviewed by Francois
De Tessan of the Matin.
FOREIGN PROBLEMS DISCUSSED
United States Will Jint Offer to
Mediate Ilrtrreen Italy and
Tarker Unless Asked
to Ilo No.
PARIS. Nov. 29.-The Matin publishes
today what purports to be an Iruervmw
with President Taft. written bv Francois
de Tessan. The writer quotes the presl-
ttent on such questions as Intervention in
tne 1 urco-ltalian war, on America's at
titude In regard to China on ihe sit on.
tton In Mexico and on the general sub
ject of arbitration.
When asked about th nnsHthllltv nf
American meditation In the Turco-ltalian
war the writer says that president Taft
declared the United Slates was certainly
disposed to be In favor of the re-establishment
of peace; Nevertheless he felt
that It would be unwise to depart from
tho usual path.
"Our relations with the two belligerents
are, equally friendly. We do not wish tq
'offend the 1 national dignity f either.
Moraerer, the turCd-nallan'war con
cerns primarily the European concert,
There Is therefore the question of tact
for the United States not to put herself
forward to bring an end to a conflict
which, however, from the bottom of her
heart she desires to see ended.
"It is evident that If the Europsan
powers were In accord to ask for our
mediation we should be happy to work in
favor of peace. We have wished t' avoid
anything that might lead to a misinter
pretation of our action. That la the rea
son why up to now we have adopted an
impartial and Impressive attitude."
Situation in China.
Speaking on the subject vt China, Presi
dent Taft Is stated to have said that tho
United States would naturally defend its
interests, remaining at the same tlin-
faithful to the double principle of tho
maintenance of the Integrity of celestial
empire and of the open door.
"The United States cannot conceive on
the other aide of the Pacific a nation dis.
membered and a prey to foreign cupidity
in which our enterprises are 110 longer in
a state of etublllty. What will emerge
from the Chinese revolution Is a question
which no one knows how to answer. It
Is necessary therefore to act with pru
dence and within the limits of the Inter
national accords concluded after the
Boxer troubles. We are adopting a pa
tient attitude so as not to add foreign
troubles to the existing confusion in the
"The point of view of the United States
has not varied since the time of John
Hay. We wish to see China restored to
youth and modernised, so that when In
drstry and publlo works are acilvelv
pushed forward we shall be able to de-
veiop our commerce In accordance wtfth
the rules of loyal competition."
' Outlook In Mexico.

Continuing President Taft Bald:
