TESTIMONY OF F. E. BONNER, EXECUTIVE SECRETARY OF

THE FEDERAL POWER COMMISSION, WASHINGTON, D. C.Resumed

(The witness was duly sworn by the chairman of the committee when he appeared Thursday, February 20, 1930.)

The CHAIRMAN. Mr. Bonner, at the last hearing I gave you a memorandum of what the committee desired with respect to applications for licenses and controverted valuation items in excess of $5,000, I believe. I have understood from the clerk of the committee that you have prepared that information. Have you the information here this morning?

Mr. BONNER. Yes, sir.
The CHAIRMAN. Have you that information in written form?

Mr. BONNER. Yes, sir. But may I have the privilege of making a short statement first, Mr. Chairman? The CHAIRMAN. You may.

Mr. BONNER. It seems to me that there are several points in your record that should have some clarification before we go further in considering some of this other information. I shall not attempt to try to correct all of the inaccuracies in the testimony of some of the previous witnesses, but I should like to cover a couple of points. One is that Mr. Russell testified I ordered him out of the Flathead hearing

The CHAIRMAN (interposing). Will you just direct your conversation to the committee reporter and speak out so that we may all hear you?
