WASHINGTON. Feb. 6,-Fcar of grant
ing Immunity to witnesses caused the
Interstate Commerce commission to make
an Incomplete Investigation of the affairs
of the New York, New Haven & Hart
ford railroad, benator Norris said today,
In ursine passage of his resolution for n
new Inquiry Into several features not
touched on In tho recent Investigation.
Senator Norris read newspaper charges
emphasizing particularly that attorneys
for Morgan & Co., received $15,000. for
drawing the Incorporation papers of n
110,000 s'ubsldary corporation of the new
Haven.
Should De In l'cn.
If half J.he Information made public
about the' New Haven transactions Ij
true, eight or ten 'persons ought to be m
the penitentiary," interjected Senator
Borah. "Aro you not afraid further In.
vestlgatton may give Immunity to guilty
persons?"
Senator Norris replied that testimony
probably could be obtained from the
bookkeepers and he' had no objection to
giving them Immunity.
Senator Cummins declared that In his
opinion) congress had enough Information
and Jt would do best to busy Itself with
tho enactment of proper laws to prohibit
future transactions than to nwalt further
Investigation by the Interstate Commercu
commission. He Insisted that the commis
sion had no authority to investigate the
charges that tho directors defrauded tho
stockholders.
Known It Going: On.
"I, predict the state of affaires here
finds a parallel In the capitalization of a
dozen railroads of the country," said
Benator Cummins. "We have known It
was goint.on for years and refused o
give the Interstate Commerce commission
power to regulate such matters."
Doth Senator-Jjd(r-and Senator .Nor-,
rls said they understood the commission
ha'd evidence it had not made public.
Senator Norris declared he had great
confidence In Chairman Elliott, but Con
tended he should do everything within
his power to reveal the post that stock
holders might h recompensed for their
losses.
Mr. Borah expressed the opinion thit
the attorney general would act and re
ferred to the recent agreement between
the .Department of Justice and the New
Haven in whlWi the government ild not
waive its right to proceed criminally.
PoTrcrfnl Moral Influence.
"I think the spectacle of five or six
men behind the bars would have a more
powerful moral Influence on tho country
than any legislature we can enact." he
declared.
Senator Cummins replied there was no
federal law under which the attorney
general could "put any of these men be
hind bars," and that tho attorney general
could not enforce state laws, nor grant
Immunity from prosecution under stato
laws.
Senator Norris said ho had been told
by a member of the house that Prof.
Bruce Wyman, once at Harvard unlver
' pity and who it has since been
revealed was on the pay roll of the Now
Haven, came to Washington three timed
to' urge that it would be unwise to In
vestigate New Haven affairs.
A letter was read from Commissioner
Prouty, who Investigated the New
Haven, saying:
"On the whole I do not believe anything
could bo accomplished by a further in
vesllgatlon. I believe more could be
done by a senate committee than by the
commission."

Social Clubs Must
Pay Income Tax
NEW YORK, Fob. 6.-A11 social clubs,
provided they are Incorporated, are sub
ject to the provisions of the lncomo tax
law, according to a ruling by W. H,
Osborne, commissioner of Internal revp
nue. It Is supposed. Commissioner Os
borne says, athat congress did not Intend
that such organizations should come
within the law, but failed to exempt them
through an oversight, and the result is
that they are taxable. .
This new turn to the lncomo tax come
about when a member of a law firm that
has specialized In Income tax waa asked
by a client, a downtown luncheon club,
for Information. The attornoy sent to
Washington for a ruling, stating that the
club pays no dividends and Is not con

Commissioner Osborne's ruling, made
public today by tho law firm, was that
there is no provision in the law for tho
exemption of any organization except
those specially mentioned.
All returns under the law must be filed
on or boforo March 1.

depredations of members of tho Maximo
Castillo gang ot bandits.
This Information, amplifying reports
last night from Chlhuahun, was received
here today at the headquarters of tho
railroad. It corrects last night's state
ment that It wan the Drake tunnel, a
muller bore south of Cumbre, that was
destroyed. The Cumbre tunnel is tho

required eighteen months' to construct.

A seventh American Is believed to have
been on this trnln, and Americans were
also emplojed on the freight train which
was used to fire the tunnel.

Tho. other detchra,entr believed to bt

ing, probably-In revenge for the fate ot
his men at Kl Valle. HcT captured a train
of stock cars Wednesday and ran It Into
tho tunnel, where It was set on tire.
'he tunnel ' was a blazing mass that
evening awhen the-' passenger train. from
Juarci was captured and sent headlong
Into tha roaring furnace, which was

customers secured by such up-and-dolng
methods got a brand
ot service equal to the quality
of the advertising.
