WASHINGTON, Oct. S9.-Important
changes In the administration currency
bill resulted from the .first day's execu
tive work on the measure by the senato
committee. The committee passed over
for later action the proposition to nub
stltutc a central government-controlled
bunk for the regional bank plan In tho
bill, on which the members were evenly
divldod and proceeded to perfect the de
tails of the measure.
The complexion of the proposed federal
reserve board was altered materially by
amendments adopted today and probably
will be changed further. It was de
cided to Increase the membership of the
Hnwt frnm KnVAll. njl'flxed ttl thO hOUSO

tary of agrlcultudo and tho comptroller
of the currency irom service on mo
board. Another amendment Is pending to
tako off .tho board the secretary of tho
treasury and to remove, all ex officio
nembers. The committee decided to ar-
ngo tho terms so that one member's
rvice would expire each year. This
.provision Is designed to, meet tne ucmanu
that tho service of members of tho board
bo given continuity to enable them to
profit by their experience on tho board.

From hi coll In Sing Sing, x-Stato
Senator sviophen J. Stllwcll repudiated
the correctness of his written application
foi pardon, as made public by Sulier.
Ho was backed up by James M. Clancy,
warden of tho. prison. Standing by Stll
well, but denying that he was attempting
to shield Tammany, Clsncy wrote out his
resignation and sent It to the state de
partment of prisons.
The tSUwcll letter, a given out, was an
application for a pardon In return for
an cxposuro of "boss rule" in Now York
City. Stllwell's alleged overtures along
this line were further delayed by John
Hennessy, campaigner against Tammany.
Ho told of av conference with Stllwcll In
prison, of Stllwell's boast that he could
"put Murphy In Jail" and could Intimi
date certain legislators and swing them
In line for SuUcr at the impeachment
Stllvrell Demanded rardon First.
However, according to Hennessy, Stll
wcll demanded his pardon first and no
terms could bo agreed on. Tho fact that
Hennessy even outlined what took place
between them was credited today as hav
ing brought about Warden Clancy's resig
nation. John B. Riley, state superin
tendent of prisons, was fiuotcd as fol
"Mr. Clancy told mo Monday that tho
statements made by BtllweJl to Hennessy
were made with tho dlBtln.ct understand-
lng and agreement that they should not

"Warden Clancy told tne that he tvould
resign It Hennessy should break his
agreement with Btllwell."
Stllvrell Talks to Miller.
Senator Btllwell refused to make a con
fession last summer, so ex-Governor
Sulier was Informed today, becauso the
Tammany senators, somo of whom, he
Suiter would bo removed from office and
then Sfllwell vould be pardoned.
Mr. Sulier received this Information to
day n a letter from Rov. O. R. Mlljer of
Albany. The letter says:
"One day the latter part of last Juno I
called on Senator Btllwell In the Tombs.
GUI Well said he ought to squeal on tho
Tommany senators, some of whoni( he
said, had done worse things than h. He
Insisted that he know much to tell on
other Tammany men. However, before I
)eft, Stllwell said to me: 'Oh, I shall not
squeal-not yet. They are going to im
peach Sulier and remove him from office
and then the chief says I will bo par
doned.' He said that he had talked with
,blg Tammany men lately and knew
whereof he spoke.
"A day or two later told Governor
SuUer what Stllwell had said to me. The
governor spoke up emphatically, 'btll
well Is guilty and deserves little consider
ation.' he said."

appealed to the United States circuit court
dt appeals today to have the Judgment
Attorney Elijah H. Zollne began tho
argument In behalf of thirty of tho men.
Three othors are not Involved In the ap
peal, one remaining In federal prison at
Leavenworth, Kan., and two others hay
ing beetl paroled.
"Wo will show that these men not only
did not have n fair trial, but Uiat they
were punished three times for tho same
offense," said Attorney Zollno.
Three Crimes in One.
"First, they were convicted of conspir
acy with Artie E, .MoManlgal and the
McNamarsLS to violate the federal law
against carrying explosives on passenger
trains; secondly, thay Were convicted of
actually carrying explosives, and thirdly,
they were convicted In the consolidated
"All these convictions were based on
the same evidence. The punishments
were fixed accordingly. For instance,
Frank M. Ryan was given seven years
on th contention that he committed
thres offense' by oho act."
Mr, Zollns quoted authorities' to show
that a conviction on oao offenso Is a bar
to a conv!6llon on another when both
offenses are based on the sumo evi
dence. "We also contend that these men were
railroaded to Jail," asserted Mr, Zollne,
Rushed to Penitentiary,
"After their conviction at Indianapolis,
they wera not given tlmo to apply for a
writ of error, but Immediately were
! rushed to the penitentiary at Leaven-
; worth. If the court please, these men
. are union workers. They construct beau-
. tlful houses, but they don't live In them,
They are. laboring men, but they are en-
titled to a fair chance.''
Only two of the convicted men were In
court. They were Mr. Ryan, who still l
president of the International Association
of Bridge and Structural Iron Workers,
and Richard H. Uofillhan of Chicago.
Mr. Ryan had served only a few weeks
of his seven years' tcntenco when he
was released on bonds.

(Law) had mado att he Blenheim palace
rally In July, 1012, to support Ulster in

made perfectly clear.

tho unionist loaders would hot decline
the invitation to a conference and would
oonslder any proposals made to therri
