.Doubt of Its Abilities to Go
into Internal Workings of
Banks Means Suspension
Obstacles Are Thrown in the !
Way of Committee and
Many Points Have
" Been Touched Upon
WASHINGTON. D. C, Jan. il -Hearings
In the house money trust,
committee will be suspended Friday
or Saturday of next week, according
to tbe announcement tonight mad?
by Representative Pujo. chairman of j
the committee, who assigned as the i
principal reason for the suspension
the doubt cast upon the power of the
committee to inquire Into the inter
nal affairs of banking institutlous.
This action' said Representative
l'njo in a statement explaining th-'
announcement "Is due mainly to the
doubt that has been cast by the bank;
ni"on the power of the committee to
Impure" Into their Internal affairs and
especially their refusal to disclose the
names of individual borrowers of up
wardsf a million dollars, wbicn
would affect only thirteen institd
t!ons In the United States.
Information is Essential
"Without this information anil In
Iho'aWsrtice of TilCTH'of ascertaining
the character of business done by th.
banks that have made huge profits In
a comparatively short time, it is j
manifestly impossible for the com-:
mittee to ascertain whether, and ;t !
so, to what extent, the banks and I
their funds have been and are bein !
used by great financial interests in
the futherance of schemes to the ex j
elusion of competing business."
In announcing the suspension of
oral hearings. Chairman Pujo points
out that there are still upwards or
forty witnesses who have not been ex
amined and that many important sub
jects have not been touched.
Needs More Power
"When this committee was appoint
ed," continued Pujo In his statement,
"it was announced that it would be
necessary to Tiave further power to
Inquire Into the bank's affairs. The
bill conferring such power has passed
the house, but is still penJing In tha
."Appeals .'to the president and the
comptroller of currency for Informa
tion which Is within the power of the
president to grant, have met with low:
delays. They have embarrassed the
work committee, but have resulted ;n
"The committee Trill adjourn until
February 25 to consider Its report."

LONDON, End.r Jan. 17. The next
move In the long drawn out game- of
diplomacy for the settlement of the
war In eastern Europe must be made
by Turkey. The collective note of
the European powers, drawn by the
ambassadorial conference at London,
was handed today to the Turkish gov-
iernment ot Constantinople. There
seems no reason why a reply should
not be delivered promptly unless
Turkey determines to procrastinate
and hope for some unforeseen event,
to turn up that will be to her ad
vantage. Diplomats expect that Turkey will
concede something to th allies -with
tiic purpose of Indicating to the pow
cra that she will make efforts to
bring the peace delegate together
again for further negotiations. The
allies will then have an opportunity
to show whether their ultimatum to
resume hostilities unless Turkey com
plies with their demands Is as Iron
clad as thoy profess it to be.

year term expires February
Great confusion, out of which
arose two challenges to duels,
marked the casting of the bil
lots. Premier Polncare's selec
tion to the presidency of
France, although made ty pari
tameut as required by the con
stltut'on. is regarded as repre
senting well the popular will,
of the nition. Jules Pains,
minister of agriculture, was
Polncare's nearest competitor.

receiving notification of his
election were, '1 shall Iry to

OFF FOR VERSAILLES.
PARIS, Jan. 17 Early tfci morn
lng the senators, deputies and an ar
my of press representatives were off
for Versailles. where the members ot
the two classes first named, meeting
in joint session as the national as
sembly, are expected before the day
ia over to select the successor of 51.
FallicrejLas. president of Frdnce, The
iWrtrftfetrrf Whoever hef -mayl)e.-will
asat.im- office one month hence.
In France the constitution, which
in this respect represents th? recoil
from the napoleonic system of plebis
cites, does not admit citizens to an
direct vote in the election of tht
chief executive of the nation. Tho
president Is elected by the senite and
the chamber of deputies unl'ed in
convention at Versailles.
Public Manifests Interest.
It is a
noticeable fact, however,
that the general public has manifest
ed far more interest In Jthe present
election than ever beforje since the
idency seems to be unde -going-a rad
ical change. Heretofore he pres'den'
bus been looked upon a little more
than a figurehead. No' the peoplt
seem to want iomethln ; more than
a- figurehead at the Elys e. Retvntlj
the newspapers of all shades- ot
opinion have been point; tig out that,
for one thing-, tbe present state ot
European politics and thrt prospect of
the Immediate future in the Balkans
make It desirable that tht! highest of
fice in tbe state should he held by o
French statesman who M alle to
speak and act with an authority de
rived from personal emiitpnce and
from political experience.
Four Popular Candidates.
It is believed that the choice of
the general assembly will fill upon!
one of lour candidates M. iKiymonu
Poincare, the prime minister chd min
ister for foreign affairs- M. Alexan

M. Paul Deschanel, president o the

Other names mentioned include itfose
of M. Delcasse. minister o' marine;
M. Pams, minister of agriculture, and
M. Clemenceau, former prime mini,
M. Polncarci M. Rlbot and M. Des
Chanel arc well known to their fel
low citizens and enjoy high rcspecc
It Is uoteu that all three are mem
bers of the Academy of France, and
as. to all appearance, they are the
three leading candidates, it is antici
pated, with some satisfaction, that the
pext president of the republic will
like Thiers and Bonaparte, be a mem

signifies to France and to the whole
world that he U above the leve' of
