"It would take tts months and even years to investigate every lobby existing here today, Caraway continued. "Much of it would be repetition. We have already accomplished one of our major purposes, to discredit .the influence the lobbies are reputed to have." Looking Into Manganese. The committee began its inquiry into the manganese lobby today with Clarence A. Buck, vice president of the Bethlehem Steel corporation as the first witness.. The committee is determined to learn what influence, if any, was brought to bear upon-thj senate finance committee to placi* manganese on the free list after it had voted previously to continue the present duty of one cent a pound. The committee changed Its vote within a day or two after tho Bethlehem Stee:. corporation announced it had completed negotiations to purchase a huge amount of manganese from soviet Russia. The senate yesterday reversed the action of its finance committee and restored the 1-cent duty on manganese. During the debate it was charged, and denied, that President Hoover had brought influence on the committee to place the ore on the free list. Would Help Bethlehem. It also was charged the Bethlehem Steel corporation, would benefit to .the extent of many thousands of dollars on it's Russian contract alone if manganese had remained on the free list.

F. Leo Carroll, agent for the Thomas Carroll estate, owner of the property, plans to erect a building suitable for (itoro and storage purposes . for the Atlantic & Pao.lflc Tea company on the site of the old hotel. • Tho ground is irregular In shape, being located on a triangular corner and the old building liad a frontage of nineteen feet on Sixth avenue. A plot on the corner 120 by 180 by 1BO feet was zoned for business purposes, the remainder of the block being zoned for double dwelling purposes. Mr. Carroll wishes to give the new niilding a frontage of twenty-eight feet on Sixth avenue and the estate owns sufficient land to do this, but 0.8 'eet of tho frontage will thus extend Jeyond the business zone. Under the circumstances It will be lecessary to bring the issue before the board of appeals and it will be heard at a special meeting on Nov. 13. Early action is taken so that the new bulld- ng operations will not bo delayed. The old structure has about disappeared, DEATH RECORD.

Right In the Limelight Should it legislator or public official, nfter attending at it Burnt n prlvnle fum'.tion of a Noclnl nature, publicly roveul what transpired Senator S. W. Brookliart, left, did, lifter going to nn allegftil zA party" given by W. <l. Kaliy, lower right, n Now York broker. Ho snlil, too, that "thorn's no ethics In covering up crime." By nOUNEY DUTOIIEH. , NKA Service Writer. WASHINGTON, D. C., Nov. 8.— Argument rages hotly here over the question: "Should a senator tell?" And is the Hon. Smith Wlldman Brookliart o'f Iowa simply a brave and lonest public servant, or does ho qualify for membership in the "Polecat Club," us was suggested in a letter to him which he read on the Senate floor? Brookliart certainly had a good story to unload. If anything were needed to prove tho existence of a social lobby it was the tale of how this simple gentleman from the middle west was Invited to a "booze party" and placed between Otto Kahn and one of J. P. Morgan's boys, each of whom tried to educate him on matters pertaining to railroad legislation. And how such distinguished Republican senators as Smoot and Edge were there, too, not to menelon Mr. Vare, or Mr. Moses, who urged Brookliart to go. But the general opinion Is against Mr. Brookhart. Most members of Congress, lobbyists and newspapermen agree that Mr. Brookhart, even if put to torture, never should have squealed on his hosts. In these contentions the point of a gentleman's honor is heavily stressed, although some of tho Iowa statesman's loudest critics are those who would suffer most severely If undue publicity were to discourage gentlemen with plenty of money from giving "booze parties" In Washington's best hotels. Tho minority point of view is that Brookhart's disclpsures are not to be compared with the conduct of a guest who sees liquor served at a private party _and then goes and calls up the prohibition agents. Brookhart always has been a radical on railroad legislation. If these "Wail-Streeters," as he calls them, tried to get him pickled or otherwise'attempted to wangle him away from his convictions, well, It Just served them right. Brookhart himself Is losing no sleep over tho ethics of the case. "There's no ethics In covering up crime," said he to this correspondent. "When a fellow Invites mo down to a dinner and tries to get me to take liquor and /Ixes it so millionaires can attempt to swerve mo from my duty, I'll trade my ethics for his any time, \ "I was the only Progressive there, put of novnn or eight senators. But there was Goading of Idaho, who was a Progressive In railroad matters, and they tried to work on him, too. "That's the most important social lobby that has been around here—that bunch of Wall-Strueters with thuir biennial banquets for Republican senators, • "If you drink some booze, that makes you still more agreeable and willing to listen to thum. "I don't know whether they had checked up on my personal habits. But they found out, all right." One asked Mr. Brookhart why he had refrained'so long from telling the world about the "booze party" and Wall Street's attempt to influence him. Mr. Brookhart denied that he had. "He had only mentioned it recently on the (Senate floor, apropos of something or other, and his reference had caused so much excitement that everyone begun to demand more details. From the outset he refused to nurse the ugly secret in his own bosom. * "Right away I told the vice president of the National W. C. T, U. about it." he explained. "That's Mrs. Ida B. Wise Smith, who Is also president of the Iowa w. C. T. U. She's a finu woman. "No, she wasn't excited about It. She knew the kind of thing that was going on down here. "I mentioned it to quite a lot of people and told the story in many of my speL'che.s." SENIOR HIGH IS READYJOR GAME Members of Football Squad Are Urged to Win by Clean Sportsmanship by Speaker at "Pep" Meeting. Memtt&rs of the Senior High school football team who will play against the team of the Johnstown High school tomorrow afternoon at Johnstown were urged to win tho game but to win it by clean fair sportsmanship in an address delivered. by Rev. Burlelgh A. Peters, pastor of tho Grace Lutheran church, during a "pep" meeting in the school auditorium this morning.

Peters .took the three letters of the word "pep" and fitting tho words "prayerfully enter play" advised the members of the team to play the game with the legend In their minds. Prayerfully entering the game did not necessarily mean reciting some set words, he stated, but rather should mean the general attitude toward tho contest, In entering ,tho game he urged the athlete to give his entire ability to the work set out for him and to play the gamo in n clean manner until the last whistle had sounded. The school, songs, Including several new ones, wore sung under the direction of Howard W.

MALLON, Staff, Correspondent. WASHINGTON, D. C., NOV. 8.— The metala schedule, heart of the industrial rates of the tariff.bill, ha* been severely reversed by the Inde-. pendent Republican-Democratic coalit tlon which, is gathering more strengiW^ from the so-called regular RepubH-' cans aH the extraordinary tariff over* turn cdptiijues In the senate, Pig iron, manganese and structural steel rate programs fixed by the 'senators from industrial regions In the senate finance committee have been com- • pletely overturned on the floor by tho coalitionists. The situation has added further credence to the possibility that the Republicans may wreck their own tariff bill In conference with the house after It passes the senate. ' Huge ITofltR Cited. Citing the $042,000,000 profits of th» United States Steel corporation during the last seven years and the $930,181,000 profits of the whole American steel Industry, waq revealed In the income charges in the three big items of the metals section'. The protective rate of $1.12% on pig iron, which the steel companies manufacture for their own use, has been cut to 75 cents a ton, over the protest of senators from steel districts who wanted $1.50 a ton. The present rate was set by the tariff commission act- Ing under the flexible tariff provision a year ago. ' Manganese ore, used by the steel corporations In manufacturing steel was taken from the tree list and subjected to a duty of 1 cent a pound. While there is a 1-cent rate in existing law, the coalition , decided . it should apply on all ore of more than 10 per cent metallic content, Instead of 30-per cent ores as at present. This made the new provision a slight- increase against the steel companies. . , Increase Eliminated. The proposed increase in protection for structural steel was eliminated. The industrialists wanted three-tenths of a cent a pound instead of one-fifth of a cent, which would be an increase of 50 per cent and a very high duty because even the smallest piece of structural steel weighs many 'thousands of pounds. • ' Senators from the industrial sections point out privately that the new rates are much worse from their standpoint than the present law, which they agree Is generally "a good law." Their Inclination, therefore, is naturally swing toward complete abandonment bf the present bill and retention of the law now in force. While efforts to limit debate' and force early action have been successful In many instances, there is no reason to believe now that the bill can be passed by the senate before the regular session of congress begins, and" most of the leaders now believe senate action cannot be concluded before January.
