President Wilson today expressed the

Mrs. J. B. Harriman, the resident
commissioner, Issued a statement today
pointing out that this was tho time of

had reports that .conditions throughout
the country wcro rapidly growing more
"Any one who falls to realize that
conditions aro about tho same In the.

reason a year ago," Mrs. Harriman said
today, "is cither Ignorant of conditions

WASHINGTON, Feb. 16.-June 15 Is tho
dato democratic leaders hope to adjourn

senate and house may work at tho samo
tlmo on tho trust bills. Ho told callers
today that business men were now show
ing a greater interest In the new legisla

very helpful Interest. That Interest, how
ever, Is not bo active as ho had expected,
and ho attributes that to tho fact that
business men have discounted tho char
acter of legislation and that tho meas
ures in a general way meet their ap
proval. The president incidentally remarked to
day that many objections to the publicity
features of the trade commission bill
were based on a misconception of what
the bureau ot corporations already could
do by present statutes. The president
sees little difference In the Interstate
trade commission and the present bureau
of corporations, which wlllbc merely t$j
largea oy the legislation. It already has
broad powers of Inquisition. The presi

ALBANY, N. Y., Feb. 16.-Accountants
from tho comptroller's office today re

State Treasurer Kennedy that they were
In perfect condition. Tho examination to

that tlmo they wcro balanced by the samo
men who made the audit today-and pro
nounced correct A complete audit of tho
books from the tlmo Mr. Kennedy took
office up to tho date ot his death prob
ably will follow.
Mr. Kennedy's successor will be chosen
by tho legislature in. Joint session. At
torney General Carmody has expressed
tho opinion that a majority vote of all
the elected legislators would bo required
to select a new treasurer. In that event,
It was pointed out, the republicans would
havo to receive assistance from the pro
gressives or else face tho possibility of a
deadlock In case the democrats stood to
