WICKERSHAM TWICE TO
BIG 'BUGS' RESCUE
New York, Nov. 21. Just as
subpoenas for J.iPierpont Mor
gan and William Rockefeller
were issued here, orders from
Washington stopped the federal
grand jury's investigation into
the Grand Trunk-New Haven
railroad merger.
U. S. District Attorney Wise
refused to discuss the curious or
der from his chief, Attorney Gen
eral Wickersham, but it was plain
he was much disappointed.
Washington, Nov. 21. Attor
ney General Wickersham has a
new plan in the Grand Trunk
New Haven case, which will pre1
vent J. Pierpont Morgan)r Wm.
Rockefeller being dragged into
court.
This plan is to examine the
books of the two railroads, and if
the examination warrants it, to is
sue an injunction restraining the
two roads frbm carrying out their
traffic agreement.
The traffic agreement' is the
basis of the federal grand jury in
vestigation begun in New York.
It is said to be in violation of the
Sherman law.
', Just a few days ago, the attor
ney general of Texas complained
openly that Attorney jGeneral
Wickersham had deliberately
blocked the Texas federal grand
jury in an investigation into
Standard, Oil.
The Texas attorney general
said the investigation went on
until a summons was issued for
John D. and Wm. Rockefeller,
and that Attorney General Wick
ersham then ordered the investi
gation stopped immediately and
prevented the serving of the sum
monses. o o
THE WAR SITUATION
Paris. Grand Vizier Kiamil
Pasha, of- Turkey, says that un
less Balkan allies offer better
terms, war will go on.
Belgrade. Premier Pasitch, of
Servia, denies that his govern
ment has yielded to Austria's de
mand that Servia leave Adriatic
coast alone.
Constantinople. Peace nego
tiations between General Savoff
and Nazim Pasha, commanders-in-chief
of Bulgarian and Turkish
armies, were begun today at vil
lage of Hademkui, 18 miles from
Constantinople.
Rumored that a massacre of
Christians has begun at Jaffa, 30
miles northwest of Jerusalem.
Russian cruiser Oleg is steaming
there under forced draught.
London. Believed this morn-ing-that
all danger of European
war was pver.
Belief was caused by a report
that Servja had decided noj to
seize an Adriatic port, and that
Austria and Italy had agreed on
a joint control of Adriatic sea
board. Later in the day, dispatches
from Belgrade vigorously denied
that Servia had given in to Aus
tria, and renewed uneasiness was
felt in capitals of the Powers.
