Co. announced today that It has severed
Its connection with some o tha greatest
corporations In the country with which
It has long been connected. This step, the

the problems and criticisms having to do
with so-called interlocking directorates."
Among tho companies from which they
they retired are the New York Central
and the New Haven railroads.
J. P. Morgan made this statement: "Tho
necessity of attending many board meet
ings has been so serious a burden on our
time that we have long wished to with
draw from tho directorates of mahy cor
porations. Many or these directorates we
accepted with reluctance and only be
cause we felt constrained to keep in
touch with properties wo had reorgan
ized, or whoso securities we had recom
t mended to tho public, both here and
"An apparent change In public senti
ment In retard to directorships seems
now to warrant us in seeking to resign
from some of these connections.
"Indeed, It may bo In view of tho change
In sentiment on tho subject that we shall
bo In a better position to serve such prop
erties and their security holders, if we
are not directors. Wo have already re
signed from the companies mentioned and
wo expect from time to time to withdraw
from other boards on which wo feci thcro
Is no special obligation to remain."

By withdrawing from these corporations
J. P. Morgan & Co. havo cut the strings
that havo held together many of the
country's most Important corporations In
a community of Interests which has been
assailed within and without congress.
The house of Morgan feels that it has
kept within tho law. In all Its complex
operations and that no legal necessity or
threatened complications with tho au

necessary to adopt a sweeping change In

showing how a widow, after a lapse of

was something over $500. She was not
obliged under the law to do this, but her

Under tho disposition of tho estate,

Chain of Banks Will

NEW YORK, Jan. 2. Confirmation of

for financing men of small means,
would soon establish In this country a
chain of banks In an effort to aid small
borrowers who are unable to obtain
loans from ordinary financial institu

Edwin R. L. Gould. Mr. Rosenwald Is

system, but a system of credit and loan.
There are 15,70) Institutions In Germany

HENCHMEN WAITING SIGNAL
Governor Morehcad's Boosters
Ready for Big Campaign.
SCHEME IS PRACTICALLY SET
Friends of the Executive. Will So
licit Ills Enteral w the llnoc fur
rie.KIecHon' to , the Preji
ent 'Of Mce.
Tho henchmen have been properly
couched and aro now ready to begin the
circulation of a petition placing Governor
John H. Morehcad In nomination for re
election ns governor of Nebraska. Yes,
they havo been properly coached to stort
the potltlon- In Omaha and soverul purts
of the state at practically tha same time.
Tho governor knows about tho coaching,
and ho Is Just sitting back In tho ex
ecutive chair waiting for his "friends to
bring him out for the nomination."
Of course, when "friends bring one out"
and insist, ono cannot without showing
gross Ingratitude, graciously decline.
There ure several distinct reasons why
It Is necessary for "friends to bring tho
governor out." Tho big, staring, glaring,
flaring reason Is that in his campaign
for election as governor Mr. Morohend
repeatedly announced that he would ask
only ono term, and that under no con
sideration would he nsk to bo re-elected.
That promise Is easy to make during
campaigns. Likewise is It hard to live
up to, when one once gets a taste of tho
Joys of being a chief executive. It Is so
nice to be It again.
Different Tlinn Roosevelt.
But Governor Morchead dislikes to do
the Roosevelt act and deliberately seek
the office after he has publicly said ho
would never do such a thing. It Is much
nicer to have "friends urge ono to come
out." So the friends have been coached
to do the urging.
Then, too, thero Is a burning, stinging
reason why tho governor must look for
re-election if ho Is to bo In politics nt
all. His other plans for his futuro are
Thefce other plans were to Innd himself
In congress in tho place of Congressman
jjnhn A. Magulre of tho First district.
I "From governor to representative in
congress," that was Mr. Moreneoo b orig
inal program. What happened to It? The
sentiment of 'he leading democrats of
the First district will give some clue to
what happened to it. Tho leading demo
crats there will not Stand for shelving
John A. Magulre In favor of Governor
Morehead Tho leading newspapers r,f
Cass, Richardson, Nemaha, Otoe, Lan
caster, Johnson and Paw nro counties
havo mado It clear that they are not In
favor of shoving Mugulro asldo to make
a place for Morehead in congress.
So tho governor topk counsel with Mm
self, and incidentally a few of his friends,
and the result Is that his friends are
primed to begin the circulation of peti
tions to place him In nomination for re
election as governor.
This will likely mean that ho will ha'o
to beat Georgo W. Berge of Lincoln nt
tho primaries, and many political proph
ets doubt his ability to do that In view
of the good race Berge mado for gov
ernor In 1901.
