the Fact Will Come Ont
WASHINGTON, July 29.-Jdartln M.
Mulhall told the senate lobby committee
that at one time he proposed an Investi
gation of hts activities as a lobbyist for
the National Association of Manufactur
er to former Chairman Wilson of the
labor committee. Speaker Clark and Re
publican Leader Mann and that all turned
down his proposal.
Mulhall testified he made his proposal
to Wilson, now secretary of labor, per
sonally and to Clark and Mann In a
letter through Representative McDermott
of ttUnols. He testified he had offered
his correspondence to Samuel Gorapers,
t president of the American Federation of
Lubor and that Gompers had declined.
"Were the letters or their substance
laid before Mr. Wilson?" asked Senator
"1 gave Mr. Wilson an understanding
of what I had," repUed Mulhall.

Speaker Clark and Mr. Mann. Mulhall
said, would not have the matter "come

"No I offered to give them."
Mulhall went briefly Into the story of
Ills separation from the National Associa

disagreed with his superiors about his
participation In the campaign In Maine, in
- which, he swore, tho United StateB Brew
ers association had paid hla expenses.
Ills resignation followed a rebuke by the
executive board of manufacturers. The
manufacturers, he said, wanted to keep
out of liquor fights. Mulhall explained

Majority Leader O. W. Underwood, of
the house, today denounced Martin M.
Mulhall, alleged lobbist for the National
Association of Manufacturers, as "a liar
and a blackmailer." Mr. Underwood ap
peared, before the senate lobby committee
to deny that Mulhall had ever talked to
him about legislation before congress.
After one look at the witness he sold:
"I never saw him before In my life."
"I think," said the majority leader,
"that It Is In tho interest of tho public
that a man who has taken liberties
with public men, as this man has, should
be contradicted. I regard a man of this
kind as a blackmailer. That man has
never been In the ways and means
committee room since r have been chair
man. He may have had conversations -with
me, but when he says he had an
Interview, I want to say that statement
is a lie. '
Mr. Underwood appeared unexpectedly
'and mude a brief statement before he
was sworn. Ho denounced as false
Mulhall's statement that an employe of
the ways and means committee had been
In his employ. According to Mulhall's
earlier testimony, the man was paid $20
"You made the statement that this
man was a blackmailer; that means he
used threats to extort money," said
"I think he was trying to get money
out of his own people," returned Mr.
Chairman Underwood read Mulhall's
letter about ' the alleged Interview In
which Mulhall wrote that Underwood
had told him that he could not do other
wise than appoint William B, Wilson,
now secretary of labor, chairman of tho
house labor committee because there
was. no other candidate betore the ways

to Demote Veterans
in Pension Bureau
WASHINGTON. July 29.-A sharp fight
In congress Is threatened as the result
of all alleged demotions In the penMon
bureau. In which many old soldiers are
said to have been the sufferers. Repre
sentative Austin of Tennessee has of
fered a resolution In the house calling on
Secretary Lane of the Interior department
for Information concerning the alleged
shakeup, and especially as to whether
civil service rules are being violated.
The activity of tho republicans Is said
to be based on the report that when
Pension Commissioner Saltzgaber returns
to his post there wilf be further and more
sweeping changes Acting Commissioner
Tllman Is reported as saying that. In the
general reorganization, employes with
democratic affiliations and beliefs will
be given preference on the ground that a

ministration Is necessary to satisfactory
Denial was made by Mr. Tieman, how
ever, that political faith would be the
prime requisite. Personal worth and of
ficial record of secvlco, he said, would
likewise carry weight.
Thus-far the matter has not been taken
before the cvlc service commission. John
A. juclllhenny, president of the com

had been made to him.
Price of Corn Rises
2 Cents on Reports
of Drouth Damage
CHICAGO, July 29. Sensational lower
ing of crop estimates owing to damage
from drouth and heat, brought about a
rush of buying today In the oorn trade.
The result was to put up prices 2 ,
cents a bushel. Profit taking by holders
caused no Important setback, the market
absorbing all offerings in a manner that
seemed almost ravenous.
All hope of 3,000,000,000 bushels of corn
this season appeared to have been
abandoned. Instead, experts talked of
2.675,000,000 bushels to 2,700,000,000 bushels,
with a possibility of a drop to as short
a total as 2,500.000,000 bushels.
Excited purchasing carried prices yet
higher before the final gong cleared the
brokers from the pit, which had been
crowded throughout the day. The sharp
est advance was In the December option,
which at one time showed a net advance
of J!i33c a bushel, at 63g63Kc The close
for December, however, was at 62Ho.

This lav. It Is stated, prohibited the
use of the same rate by two or more
componles, for the use of tne same rate
by two or more companies was mado
prima fade evidence of a felonious agree

"The Insurance business Is of such a
