Representative Adamson So

Tells Why.
MAY SEND MESSAGE
That Controversy Is Bound to Go Over
Into the New Administration
Is General Belief.
That President ilon, carl In his
administration, will send a message to
congress recommending the repeal of the
free toll provision of the Panama Canal
act, was the prediction mado yesterday
I v Representative W C Adamson of
Georgia, chairman of the House Commit
ter on Interstate and Foreign Commerce.
Air AdamMin framed the Panama act,
which, as original! reported, provided
that American vessels, as well as foreign'
v .ski Is, should pa j tolls for admission
to the canal
Chairman Adamson made his predic
tion that President tvilson would rec
ommend legislative compliance with the
Ilritih protest against tho alleged dis
crimination against the vessels of that
ccuntrj incident to a criticism of the
nolo of Secretary of State Knox, in which
Mr Knox upheld the present position of
the United States on tho canal question
Mr Adamson announced some days ago
that, while he favored tho repeal of 11m
free toll provision, he would not present
a repeal measure unless asked to do so
by the administration. Tho impression

question, us presented in the British pro
test, will go over Into the new adminis

British note protesting against the free

to the canal, on the ground that the
prlvllige constitutes a violation of our

If Secretary of State Knox succeed
by his plea of absque Injuria in avoid

all foundation for the illogical claims
of sonic of our people, who say they

TATTOOING LOSING ITS "CLASS"
NAVY DESIGNS ARE BAD
Tattooing is as much In vogue among
American bluejackets as ever, but there
Is a most d'piorable decline in the taste

to results of investigations made by Surg
Ammen Farenholt, U S N.
Designs copied by the tattooed deep sea
sailors of generations ago, such as the
"Jerusalem cross," or a pig on the dor
sum of the foot, are never seen among
American bluejackets of to-day, accord
ing to Surg Farenholt. Other old-time
favorites, such as crosses, crucifixes,
Neptune, mermaids, and the weeping
v Illow beside a tombstone Inscribed "In
Memory of My Mother." are becoming
very rare In their place the modern blue

and blue pictures of the Katzenjammer
kids, Happy Hooligan, tennis rackets,
hat and ball, glass of beer, and even a

becoming to a tattooed sailor man. Jap
anese Influence Is easily discernible, he

tattooed with designs of dragons, flow

women.
Tattcolng is just us prevalent among

drinking carbolic acid In her apartment

follows

' BESSIE s ELVVEUx"
' I have known Miss Ewell for a num
ber of years," said the man named in
the note when he was called on a tele
phone. "I called on her for about four
years and suppose I could be placed In
the category of her sweethearts I am
married, and Miss Elwell threatened to
tell my wife of my attentions. The price
of Miss Elwell's silence was S2.S0O. I
did not have the money. I told my
wife of my attentions to Miss Elwell and
the trouble that resulted has now
passed "
Studied urslnc Here,
Miss ' Elwell studied nursing at the
Homeopathic Hospital from September
ZI, 130a, until November 30, 1908. being
graduated on the latter date. She prac
ticed nursing in 'Washington for some
months, went to Baltimore to continue
her profession, and more recently Is said
to have been In charge of a small pri
vate hospital in Florida.
It is related that Miss Elwell made
desperate attempts to regain the love
of her former lover, but failed utterly.
She talked freely among acquaintances
of the wrong that had been done her.
It is said, and only a fortnight ago
threatened to end her life and kill the
man she loved
In the apartment in the rear of the
seventh floor of the Plymouth In Elev
enth Street, between N and O Streets
Northwest. Miss Elwell lived with four
other women, and when she uttered her
threats they took alarm and sought to
dissuade her from acts of violence. She
llFtcned to arguments, but gave them
little heed, and only a week ago turned
on the gas in her single room. An oc
cupant or the flat, who succeeded In
shielding her Identity, detected the odor
of gas and saved Miss Elwell from
death.
Hardly had the nurse been reviv ed
than she declared she wdtild again at
tempt suicide. She Bpoke bitterly of the
man to whom she ascribed her unhappl
ness. She began her plans for self-desturc-tlon
on Friday night. She sat up near
ly all night writing letters. How many
letters Miss Elwell wrote is conjectural,
but the number is vaguely placed by her
friends at "many."

Investigation of Money Trust.
However, May Not Bring
Any Legislation.
VIEWS OFMAKY MEN
Favorable Insight Into Moneyed Men
Believed to Have Justified
Action Alone.
The conclusion bv the Pujo committeo
of the nrst part of Its Investigation and
possibly of the entire inquiry brought
the question from many sources to-day
whether all the fui and mental turmoil
over thi subject really had been wortli
while The op'nion expressed by mem
bers of Congress, conservatives as well
as radicals. Republicans as well as
Democrats, was that the Investigation
would yield good results, even if not a
shred of legislation is put on the stat
ute hooks
The conerv atlv cs in Congress who.
from the start, havo scouted the idea of
a Mono Irust, contend that the inquiry
has jut!Hed Itself alone In the fact that
It has afforded an opportunity for the
country to obtain the views of men like
J P. Morgan, Jacob II be h Iff, Jame" J
Hill, and George K Baker. Some mem
bers of Congre'-s go so far as to say
that the favorable Insight -vhlch tho
public was able to get Into the charac
ter and personality of Mr. Morgan while
he was on the witness stand in Itself
was sufficient to compensate for many
of the undesirable features of the In
quiry These Senators and Representatives
contend that the testimony has estab
lished the fact that there is no Money
Trust, but that there has been, as every
body realized before the Inquiry began,
a notable tendency' toward concentration
of credit and banking resources in re
cent years
T15e most radical of the Democrats
even are willing to concede that the evi
dence adduced by the committee does not
warrant the assertion that there Is a
Money Trust In the commonly accepted
meaning of that term Where the radi
cals and conservatives differ over the
results of the Inquiry is on the ques
tion of the causes that have led to this
centralization of banking Interests.
The radicals ascribe it to the selflsh
nes3 and ambition of a small group of
powerful bankers who have sought to
eliminate competition and through a
system of co-operation to monopolize
flotations of big security Issues through
out the country. This probably is the
view that the Democratic Investigators
will take in seeking to Justlfylnclr ef
forts and in making recommendations for
legislation.
The conservatives in Congress, how
ever. Interpret the facts brought out be
fore the committee, as many of the Im
portant witnesses have, that the concen
tration of recent years has been a move
In self-defense by the bankers of the
country: that It has represented an effort
on their part to protect themselves
against a defective currency sy stem, and
that the tendency cannot be baited until
Congress strikes at the root of the evil
by enacting reform currency legislation.
That some legislation aimed at exist
ing practices Is bound to follow the In
quiries Is certain J. P. Morgan. Jacob

have agreed readily as to the advisability
of certain reforms, and Congress un

The same is true of labor organizations,
he said, and asserted the recent dynamite
conspiracy trial at Indianapolis would
not have been necessary If the rank and
file of the labor unions had paid more
attention to the actions of their officers.
He said:
"It Is In large measure because of the
gross neglect of the affairs of their com
panies bv the Individual stockholders that
officers and directors of corporations
have. In so many Instances, utterly lost
sight of their trust relation, and used
their official position and opportunities to
enrich themselves without regard to the
Interests of the stockholders whose agents
they were. The same Is trut? of every
form of organization.
"If the honest, law-abiding workmen.
who make up the rank and tile of labor
organizations, were more attentive to
their own real Interests, and did not
put themselves so absolutely in the hands
of a practically self-perpetuating cllcue of
officers, organized labor would not have
been disgraced by the group of criminals
who sought to retain their pow er through

and destruction of property and a savage
disregard of the lives and safety of the
