would como to London as soon as she Is
able to travel. She Is now In the care of

The dean of Kxeter Cathedral assented
at the service this morning to a request
that a prayer for Mrs. Pankhurst bo re

Invited to "pray for Mrs. Kmmellne Pank

WASHiNtnoN, Dec. 7. The iow between
Frank A. Munsey ui.d the Tioasury De
partment on the one hand and the New
Vork Tribune on the other over the merger
of the t'nlted States Trust Company with
tho Munsey Trust Company of this city
reached a sturio to-day where the lie was
passed by Mr. Munsey.
The New York masazlne and nevvspiper
owner has como personally to Washington
to take charge of his Interests In the
storm that has been raised over the action
of John Skelton Williams, Assistant Sec
retary of the Treasury, In ndvanclng $1,
000,000 for deposit with the Munsey Trust
Company as a means of assisting: In the
merger, when Mr. Williams's own brother
was one of tho directors of the Munsey
Mr. Munsey brok his silence, to-day
when he Issued a statemer.'' bitterly at
tacking the New York Trlbwsf for Its
assertions In reference to tho Treasury
Department and himself. Mr. Munsey ob
jected particularly to the Trtouiie's ex
ception to the statement made by the
Treasury Department that "tho Munsey
Trust Company was the best qualified
bank In Washington to handle the situa
tion" caused by the run on tho United
States Trust Company and the danger that
It threatened to Washington banking In
terests. Mr. Munsey presents figures
which, he contends, .imply Justified tho
Treasury Department for Its statement
that "this company has tho largest re
serve fund more cash on hand than per
haps any other Wushlngton institution."
C alls I'nrposr Dishonest,
After citing these figures Mr. Munsey
"In view of the above facts the state
ment In the New York 7Hbine slious an
Inconceivable measure of dishonest pur
pose. No good purpose can be served
by Journalism of this kind.
"The man alio writes a partial state
ment which, by reason of Intended omis
sions, rends a lie, is nt heart a liar, though
the exact woids he pens be true. There
can be no doubt about this, nnd It np
pllcs well and with equal force to the
newspaper which publishes It."
Mr. Muiir has fuither comment to
make on the situation thiough his news
paper heie, which said:
"The New York paper's effort has ap
parently been directed to undo the good
lesults accomplished by the cooperation
of the Trasur, the local -li.inkeis. the
Munsey Trust Company and Mr. Munsey
personally. The panic which developed
out of the reports that the t'nlted Slates
Trust Company was in malts for
ready money was nllad instantaneously
by that cooperation, ami insurance and
confidence brought back to the business
"In all quarters there were Instant ex
pressions of npprovai for the prompt,
vigorous and effective work that has been
done, but aitir the affair hail been closed
this New York paper 'discovered' what
It has been persistently pressing as sus
picious elements In the analr. Hy In
uendo, paitlal statement", garbling and
actual misrepresentations It has sought
dav bv day to convince tile people of
Washington that something ery wrons
had been done In icstorlng confidence
and In ending a panic.
Qnestlons .ovpnpcr' Motive,
"Tile actuil ni'iti and Inspiration for
the New York pallor's persistent effort to
precipitin" further financial troubles In
Washington are not jit made public.
Whether tiny be political or whether some
inorx devious and less obvious reiuions
have actuated tlv assaults nnd tho mis
representations will be made plain In good
Tile Wnshlnetnn papers to-day also car
ried page advertisements by Mr. Munsey
announcing that Ills trust company had
sent out liOO.nuO In cheeks to 20,000 per
sons who bad FO-callttI Christmas fund
deposits with tli" I'nlted Statis Trust
Company when th assets and obligations
of that Institution worn taken over by
the Munsey concern.
"Tlio Christmas fund ihecks," eaea Mr.
Munsey, "were due to bo sent out Wednes
day,' December 10, but owing to the
hysterical attm ks of the New York
Tribune somo timid i-ouls hero In Wash
ington have been anxious about their
Christmas fund checks.
"Learning this on my arrival here yes
terday morning fiom New York I Imme
diately directed that these Christmas
checks bo mailed nt once, and they weie
innllrd. This nivalis that 20,000 persons
will get Christmas checks Monday morn
ing who would not have got a check or a
suit if I had not como to tho rcscuo of
tho United Slates Trust Company two
weeks ano elerday, guaranteeing all Its
depositors agaliinl loss, guaranteeing them
with tho e ntlro f-V'Uu.Onu of resources of
tho Munsey Tiu.t Company and all my
own personal rcnouroes in addition."
t'ooKreaslonal Inquiry Kiprcted,
Notwithstanding these statements by
Mr. Munsey, it is app.uent that tho in
terest In Congressional mid blinking cir
cles In the details of tho merger
aro daily growing and that a Congrcs.
Blonal Inquiry probably will bo the re
sult. In fact, Senator I. a Follette al
ready bus Intimated to some of his friends
that ho may Introduce u resolution of

John Skelton Williams, continue to be
criticised by bankers because of their
disposition to override the Comptroller
