UNITED STATES SENATE,

SUBCOMMITTEE OF THE COMMITTEE ON THE JUDICIARY,

Washington, D. C. The subcommittee met at 11.40 o'clock a. m. in the room of the Committee on the Judiciary in the Senate Office Building.

Present: Senators King (chairman), Wolcott, and Sterling.
Senator KING. The subcommittee will be in order.

Senate bill 3529 is before the Committee on the Judiciary. It is a bill to repeal the act approved February 25, 1907, entitled "An act to incorporate the National German-American Alliance."

A subcommittee consisting of Senators Sterling, Wolcott, and myself was appointed by the chairman of the committee, and this bill was referred to the subcommittee. The subcommittee have authority to take testimony and to subpoena witnesses and to take such course as they may deem necessary to be advised as to the desirability or necessity of repealing this charter, and to enable them to make such report as the facts warrant.

Pursuant to this authority this hearing is being held to-day. A number of persons expected to have been here to-day to testify, having asked for that privilege. They were advised that no meeting would be held to-day because of the expected absence from the city of one of the members of the subcommittee. The member who expected to be absent was able to remain, and advised the chairman of the subcommittee of that fact this morning; so that this meeting is hastily called for the purpose of hearing Mr. Gustavus Ohlinger, who is in the city. Those witnesses who asked to be heard were notified to appear before the subcommittee on next Saturday. This statement is made so that those witnesses may understand the reason why the subcommittee is meeting to-day.

Senate bill 3529, as well as the act under which this organization was incorporated, will be printed as part of this record.
