?bJo Committes Has Reforms
. For Stock Exchange
WOULD PREVENT SHORT SALES
Operators Like Jame R. Keene, Who,
It la Alleged, Manipulate Market
Would Be Barred From Trading.
Counsel for the Pujo money trust
probers threw out In the course of Its
hearing at Washington these radical
suggestions of reform for the New
York stock exchange:
1. That members of the big board
be prohibited from executing orders
for important operators like J. It.
Keene, who are known to have manip
ulated the market.
2. That the New York exchange
prohibit short sales of stock.
3. That the exchange compel the
actual delivery of stock at the New
York exchange clearing house.
.Members of the committee seemed
to be under .the Impression that it
would be as feasible for the stock
exchange to prevent Its members
from doing business for manipulators
like Keene as it Is to apply the regu
lation against any member executing
orders for a member of the consoli
Also, the committee's counsel ap
parently believes that the enforced
presentation of stock certificates at
the clearing house would materially
All of these suggestions were met
by officers of tbe exchange with the
argument that they would be im
practicable. A large part of the proceedings
were taken tip with the consideration
of the ethics of the short sale. Frank
K. Sturgis and Rudolph Keppler. both
former presidents of the exchange
and now members of the board of
governors, gave their views on so
called manipulation and defended the

stances undT which it was perfectly
Justifiable to go short of the market,
but he had never in his life sold a
share In this way for himself and he
did not approve of the practice when
the market was In normal condition.
He added that It was largely a
"gamble," hut admitted that the New
York stock exchange has never
seriously considered the proposition
of forbidding it.
Mr. Keppler thought that manipula
tion was legitimate when the rules
were observed and when It did not
pass the bounds of reasonableness.
The test of reason that he would ap
ply seemed to depend on the wealth
of the manipulator and the length of
The committee in the course of the
day tried to obtain from Harry Con

ecuting the biggest orders on the

Republican Minority Is Reduced
by One Vote
PLACE DENIED Til DEMOCRAT
In Debate Representatives Palmer and
Farr, Pennsylvanians, Come Near
Engaging In Fistic Battle on Floor,
Following an interchange of per
sonalities In the house of represent
atives between Representatives A.
Mitchell Palmer, Democrat, and John
R. Farr, Republican, that body settled
the George R. McLean-Charles C. Bow
man contested election case by unseat
Ing Bowman, Republican member from
the Eleventh Pennsylvania district, by
a vote of 153 to 118, and then refused
by a vote of 181 to 88 to give the
vacated seat to the Democratic con
Democrats who had voted to oust
Bowman on the ground that his small
plurality In the election of 1910 had
been obtained by fraud and corruption
declined to support the resolution pr
sented by Representative Palmer de
claring that George R. McLean, Bow.
man's Democratic opponent, was en
titled to the Feat.
The failure to admit McLean was
due to the fact that the elections com
mittee which Investigated the cae
had not recommended nction favorable
to the contestant and to the further
fact that evidence was adduced bo
fore the committee tending to show
that there has been a lavish use of
money In McLean's behalf in the 1910
Had Mr. McLean been given Bow
man's seat he would have been en
titled to draw more th-tn $20,000 ns
pay for the two-year term In congress
at $7,."(00 a year, $:!,000 for clerk hire
for the two years and his mileaje,
As it Is, he will receive an allowance
of $2,000 for his expenses In connec
tion with the contest.
Before the vote was taken Palmer
and Farr denounced one another in
bitter terms. Mr. Palmer character
ized as "a wilful, deliberate and
malicious falsehood," an accusation of
Mr. Farr that the Delaware, Lacka
wanna and Western railroad hal
adopted coercive measures to drive
Its employes to the support of Mr.
Palmer In the November election.
Rising to reply to this charge Mr.
Palmer spoke to a question of persona!
privilege and called upon Mr. Farr to
prove his Insinuations or "apologize
like a man."
"It Is true," shouted Mr. Palmer,
shaking with emotion, "that I am the
local attorney of the railroad in Mon
roe county. Pa., but so far as the state
ment of the gentleman that I have
ever solicited that corporation or any
other corporation to coerce its em
ployes to vote for nie or anybody else,
It Is deliberate, wilful and malicious
Mr. Farr persisted in declaring that
the railroad officials helped Palmer in
his campaign and he insisted that
Just as much coercion had been used
in Palmer's election as Palmer had
charged had been employed in the
case of Mr. Bowman.

Ambassador Passes Away After
Two Weeks' Illness
LAST HOURS ARE PEACEFUL
Born in Xenia, O., of Poor Parents in
1837 Whltelaw Reid Rose to Prom
Inent Position in Diplomatic Ranks.
Whltelaw Reid, American ambassa
dor to Great Britain since 1905, died
last Sunday, in his London resi
dence, Dorchester House, from pul
monary oedema. The end was peace
ful. Mrs. Reid and their daughter,
Mrs. Hubert Ward, were at the 'bed
The body will be sent home -and
probably will be Interred In Sleepy
Hollow, but the details will not be
decided until a communication is re
ceived from Ogden Reid and It is
learned what action the British gov
ernment may desire to take.
Mrs. Reid hopes to sail Saturday
next, should her soi reach England
In time to accompany her, but in all
probability the government will place
a warship at the disposal of the fain
lly for the transport of the body of
the ambassador to the United States
While Mr. Reld's condition had been
serious only since Thursday last and
he had been confined to the house only
for a fortnight, his illness really dates
from his return from New York last
February after his visit here to enter
tain the Duke and Duchess of Con-
naught. On the voyage he contract
ed a cold, to which he was susceptl
ble, and found great difficulty in shak
ing It off. He Insisted on going to
the embassy every day and carrying
on his correspondence both there
and at home.
Whltelaw Reid was horn near
Xenia, O., on Oct. 27, 1837. His
parents were poor. A kinsman. Pr.
Hugh McMillan, a rigid Scotch cove
nanter, undertook to fit the future
editor and ambassador for college.
Dr. McMillan was a trustee of Miami
university and principal of the Xenia
academy. In 1856 Whltelaw Reid was
graduated from the university with
scientific honors. He became princi
pal of the graded schools In South
Charleston, O., and saved enough to
buy the Xenia News.
As editor of the News he displayed
talent and Attracted the attention of
the leaders of the young Republican
party in his state. He advocated tho
nomination of Abraham Lincoln In
18f,0. At the outbreak of the Civil

Morris in West Virginia and later
the staff of General Rosecrans. Ho
also acted ns war correspondent for
the Cincinnati Gactte. He was tho
only correspondent that witnessed the
battle of Shiloh from its start to its
finish and it was his account of this
battle that stamped him as a corre
spondent cf the first rank. In 18D2
lie became the correspondent of the
Cincinnati Gazette at Washington.
His report of the proceedings of
the impeachment, of President John
son attracted the attention of Horaco
Greeley, who persuaded Mr. Reid to
accept a place on the political staff
of the Tribune. His post was lead
ing editorial writer with a salary next
to Mr. Greeley's.
After Mr. Greeley's retirement from
active life Mr. Reid on the strength
of his reputation as a successful
editor and newspaper manager 'bor
rowed enough money to buy control
of the paper. 1
In 18SI Whltelaw Reid married the

fornlan of great wealth who removed
to this city. On her father's death
Mrs. Reid became possessor of one
