Morgan's Testimony Causes a Huge Sensation C~^ Wets Pile Up 6 io I Lead in New York State Head of Morgan Firm Admits No Income Tax Payments in Two Years WASHINGTON, May 23.—the investigation by ihe Senate Com- mittee today of the financial House of Morsran caused a sensation in political and commercial circles as it -was brought to light that the gigantic banking firm, with over fiv<- hundred millions of asset? and comanercial interests in all coun- tries of the globe had paid a mere $47,ooO tax to the government. It also came to light that Morgan himself had paid no income tax to the government the past two years. Much dissension broke out. anions the Senate investigators jelative to securing: income state- ments from the Moriran organiza- tion. Senator Glass and counsel Fecora locked horns over the is- sue due to the persistence of Pe- cora in asking the question with Glass explaining that such was un- necessary as all reports were on file in the Internal Revenue de- partment. Finally so hot became the debate that the committee re- cessed to a committee room to er- mine the matter. At the outset of the investiga- tion Mr. Morgan read a paper which in general defended the private banker and his organiza- tion. Following the paper Mr. Pe cora asked for the articles tnership hut was refused. brought out 1>y Pecora that the private banks were not subject to the State banking laws nor to any legal control but could do as they saw fit. No statements or investi gat ions of the House had ever been made by state or national govern- ments although the Morgan firm had submitted statements to the Federal Reserve Bank because **of business reasons.** Mr. Morgan al- so stated that his firm would ac- cept small deposits ranging down to *a few thousand dollars *but did not encourage them/* The investigation will be resum- es! tomorrow \when others will be summoned. These include ten of the Morgan partners and the fam- ed YanSweringen brothers of Cleveland, together -with Presi- dent G. H. Howard of the United (orporations, an alleged Morgan holding company. The committee decided ;tt a meet- ing late today to tear the lid off the Morgan transaction regardless of the consequences and it was pre- dicted that an explosion which would startle the country would occur tomorrow. It is rumored that several high officials of the Hoo- ver administration and one of the present administration are inen- of par-tioned in correspondence as having It was had dealings with the Morgan firm.
