Ottawa, April interesting anil apparently important statement hearing upon the status of the ylioli committee was made by 1. I1'- ninth, government counsel, durum the course of the hearing before the Mereiiiiii Duff commission .Mr. Hellmuth said that hia tation of the standing and position of tlie shell committee was this: "The committee was composed of four contractors or manufacturers, Messrs. Bertram, Cautley. Watt and R Carnegie, and a number of mili- tary gentleman. When thr> corre- spondence with the War Olllce by cable and letter was looked over it wan evident that, at the outset from thus Bide at all events, the minister of militia in Inking over the work was asking to be allowed to perform the duty of acting place orders for the imp Hies, ami be got together a shell coa- mltlee that would undertake that duty.

They would not permit the shell committee to enter into con- tracts for them at such prices as might lie deemed advisable by llin shell committee. The War Office said, "What will you quote us shells Anil they treated from their end the matter as one of contract which they must have manu- facturers and not with the shell com- mittee at all. They asked Cor a con- tract and they got a legal contract agreeing to furnieh certain things at certain specific prices aud that con- tract was made by these gentlemen with the minister of militia, not as minister of militia, but as acting for and on behalf of the secretary of war." Mr. Justice Duff: "That is the con- ll'act at The renowned Christie Matliewson wearing thick flannels, was seen re- cently warming up before a game. He was.closely watched by fans and play- ers. The Giants' pitcher did not over- exert himself, but at the same time he-.'Bho.u-fifl enough speed to convince the baseball sharps that his arm was as strong as ever. Matty also de- livered a number of curves and spit- ters. The fact that he used the damp fling prompted au upinicm by Alex- ander, the Phillies' star pitcher, thai "Matty must he feeling good." But in warming up, the inventor of the fadeaway did not raise his right log He kept his right foot close to the ground when he let the ball go. Last year Matty did not feel the excruc- iating pains in his neck just above the left shoulder, until he throw up his leg as part of his delivery. As ho cannot pitch effectively without this motion, ho is taking plenty of time in getting into shape. When lie finds out, therefore, that he can raise his leg without a return of the pain in his neck, Matty will bo ready to work regularly. Just at present the Giants' famouji pitcher says that he is great- ly .encouraged. LEONARD BEAT UP THOMAS 'Philadelphia, May 1 Benny Leon ard the New York light weight, easily defeated Charles Thomas, of this city, lit a six round -bout here tonight. Leonard had, kltff -better of even' f.lftk Thomas wag 1 severely the beginning for empty In Dual Capacity Mr. Hellmuth "Yes. Then as mat- ters went on the shell committee ap- pear to have treated themselves in a sort! of dual capacity. They appear to have thought that they were act- Ing and perhaps they were, as an Pdministrative board. And they were when thev met together with the gentlemen who had no con- nection with any of the contracts, and tuey entered into a number of agreements and orders with parties in this country and In the United States. But they entered into even- one of them after tiiere had been a definite order passing between ths War Office and the shell committee ir the minister cf militia. "And, again, the authorities in Eng- land said we want now to have j the firm contracts for what we you orders, and then comes this contract of July which ab- solutely renders these four gentlemen Messrs.' Bertram. Cantley, Watt and F Carnegie, contractors, responsible for every single item which they had got up to that time. But they were morally treating themselves as agents for the British government." Mr. Justice Duff: "As a public- .Mr. HelUr'ith: "The four of them were entitled to make profits. The military gentlemen, were, of course, in a different position." General Hughes; "The members of the permanent force." Dissented from HeMmuth B. F. E. Johnston said he could not allow Heiimuth's interpretation to go without dissent. "The signific- ance of the words by and said he, "is that Tip to the jtirne when those messages were sent nobody .'rom the War Office had been here." Then Mr. Thomas came out and as- certained apparently the position of matters and it was aftea- Mr. Thomas' return to England that there was discrimination between the two classes which might open up a dif- ferent path to that followed by Mi-. Hellmuth. Mr. Justice Meredith: "This dis- cussion is premature." Mr. Hellmuth: "I don't want, it to be understood that the arrangement il suggest would permit the four manufacturers on the committee to escape the moral responsibility that they assumed in regard to these con- tracts. They did assume' moral sponsibility whether it wa not." The "July referred to above was as follows: "This agreement, made ibis first day of July 1'J15, between Alexander Bertram of Ottawa in tlie province of Ontario; Thomas Cantlcy of Now Coalhurst last Sunday.
