THE WASHINGTON TIMES. SATURDAY, JANUAKV 11,' 1913.
. OF PEEL POST
One Woman Even Wants
Her Breakfast Delivered
'L to Her in Bed.
Prom a nine days' "wonder and a popu
lar toy, the parcel post Is likely to be
transformed Into a veritable car of Jug
gernaut In the hands or the American
people, of which the relentless efficiency
of a perfect automaton will be demand
ed. This at least Is the belief of the
officials of the Postofflce Department.
Just awakening to the Infinite possl
bllty of the parcel post, the public Is
preparing to put It to a test which will
be almost Spartan in Its severity. Pos
tal experts, knowing the limitations of
the present organization, are already
shoulder-deep in worry over the situa
tion which will soon present Itself.
Breakfast Sent By Mail
In ?ew York, a woman has conceived
the Idea of having her breakfast sent to
her by parcel post and she Is precise
In her demand that it reach her In time,
even if it Is -not served hot off the grld
llle. The postal authorities are not
worried over this Individual case; but
what will happen if thousands of other
women should take it Into their heads
to do likewise? Then there Is the case
of the man who takes his umbrella to
his- business office in the morning, arid
dispatches It home by parcel post when
sunlight breaks through the clouds, so
that his wife can use it for an after
noon shopping tour. Suppose there are
thousands of these cases every rainy
The Postofflce Department knows only
too well that they are not prepared to
meet such a test with their present
facilities. The man who has created
the Idea of sending his furnace ashes
tothe ash heap by parcel post. Instead
of by the ash man, opens up another
vlata of possibilities which is Infinite.
Special Stamps Needed.
The postal officials are continuing
their campaign of education so that It
may become universally known that a
special parcel post stamp is necessary
at the postofflce or a substation. Just
at present much trouble is experienced
through Ignorance of these provisions.
i Smelly Skunk Skins

Skunk skins which still retain the

original skunk skin package, it is said,
made a record trip. vEvery postofflce
employe seemed to want to speed it
along as rapidly as possible. It left the
trail, however, and will be remembered
for some time along the route.
Here in a Week
Nearly thirty thousand parcel post
packages were handled by the Wash

parcel post business. One of these
seven, days was a holiday. The outgo

PUJO QUIZ RAISES
New Administration Will Have Wealth of Facts on Which
to Base Desired Legislation to Curb
By JOHN SNURE.
That the Money trust investigation,
scoffed at when It began. Is going to
result In some of the most Important
legislation Congress has enacted In
j ears. Is now the conviction of most
of those who have been following the
Testimony such as that offered by
George F. Baker, by J. Pierpont Mor
gan, by various brokers who told of the
operations of the New York Slock Ex
change, by Comptroller of the Currency
Murray, and the mass of facts and fig
ures gathered by experts concerning in
terlocking directorates and Intercorpo
rate relationships has been piled up by
the commute In such fashion that it
is every day becoming a subject of more
comment about the Capitol.
It Is widely felt that the inquiry has
put some big, problems up to the new
Congress to solve, likewise to the new
Administrating It ia a practical cer
tainty that most of the subcommittee
which Is conducting the Investigation
did not know what a wbnderful field
they were getting into when they en
tered on the investigation.
Hearings Mat Continue.
It Is expected the hearings which are
now on will end in a short time. But
there Is not much doubt that ther will
be continued in the next Congress.
"Whether they are or not. the result Js

Morgan and Baker and Stlllman has

Wall Street Gambling.
It has been brought out clearly that
much of the operations of the New
York stock exchange are gambling pure
and simple on a great scale. Even men
high up in the exchange admit this.
It has been more fully shown that be
fore, though by no means a new dis
covery, that much of the money which
goes to feed speculation is money fur
nished by the big New York banks, and
that this in turn is money drawn from
the small banks of the Interior.
The tendency, of course, is to criticise
the New York banks, but in principle
they are acting no differently from the

rates when the demand for money to
help feed the engine of speculation Is
The obvious effect of this, so far as
Interior communities Is concerned, is
to draw away from them money
needed for the purpose of local en
terprises. . , .
Right at this point thero Is going
to come up before Congress tlio prob
lem of how to legislate to meet this
situation. Men like Mr. Morgan
think it cannot be reached bv legis
lation. Nevertheless the members of
the subcommittee are pondering how
to do It and It will rccelvo much
thought In the next Congress. Tho
disposition of Congress is to bear
down more and more strictly on na
tional banks and It Is entirely prob
able wajs will be found to prevent
them from helping along speculation
to the extent they have in the past.
Security Companies Involved.
The formantion or security com
panies and like devices by natioral
banks for the purpose of doing things
the banks cannot do Is one of the
practices which Congress Is not un
likely to strike at.
The fact that some of the big na
tional banks are participants in
financial transactions in stocks and
bonds, in promotions and syndicate
operations. Just about os If they were
private banns, has been orougut out.
The testimony of Mr. Baker, who Is
now recognized as the financial peer of
Morgan, made this clear. Men like Mr.
Morgan and Mr. Baker demonstrated to
the committee that they view the finan
cial affairs of their houses as private
affairs. Thev resent the Intrusion of
the public. They do not take the view,
which is now becoming common, that
the nubile has such an interest in trans
actions of the sort common to their es
tablishments that It is entitled to know
all about them and nave a certain
regulatory power over them.
How far the general Government can
reach to the affairs' of tho New York
Stock Exchange and like exchanges is
a disputed question. But there Is hot
much doubt It has the power to put
such exchanges out of business If It
cares to exercise It. Having this power,
the exchanges will doubtless be forced
to make radical reforms In their meth
ods. That Congress Is going seriously about
the task of putting an end to the sjs
tem of Interlocking directorates and In
tercorporate relationships as they now
exist can scarcely be doubted.
Numerous evils in the national bank
ing laws were pointed out to the PuJo
committee by Comptroller Murray. He
wants more efficient Inspection, wants
banks to publish the list of securities
they hold as assets, wants directors or
officials stopped from accepting per
sonal compensation from borrowers to
whom bank funds are loaned and wants
stockholders prevented from trans
ferring their stocks on the verge of a
collapse of the bank. His recommenda
tions will have weight with Congress.
Peace Conference at a Stand
still in London, Dele
LONDON, Jan. L The Turkish-Balkan
negotiations and the Roumania
Bulgarlan controversy were at a stand
still today and nothing was expected to
develop before Monday. There was no
session of the ambassadors, and that no
move in the peace conference was an

Dr. Daneff, the Bulgarian plenipotenti

Before leaving town Dr. Daneff ex
plained that the negotiations conducted
by him and the Roumanian envoy were
adjourned until Monday. The Bulgarian
admitted the situation was crave, but
insisted that the conference was ami

confidently was expected.
In the absence of the Bulgarian diplo

the foreign office and Informed Sir Ed

for foreign affairs, that tho negotiations
were progressing amicably. He den'cil

about It seems to us exceedingly desir
able to do so, in order that we may
again unite in promoting the great Issue
upon which we are In accord, namely
that of protection.
There undoubtedly are other great

agree and upon which we can act in

"Both parties are thoroughly in ac
cord in deslrinr to do all that mar be
possible to promote the social welfare
or tne people of this Commonwealth.
Willing To Co-operate.
"Much was accomplished when we
were acting together along this line,
and a great number of statutes were
enacted In this Commonwealth to es
tablish social and Industrial justice for
the people of this State.
"The present Republican majority In
the legislature has created a committee
to consider questions of this sort, a.nd
to promote tho social and Industrial
welfare of the people.
"When we are In agreement on the
questions that seem or supreme Im
portance we ought at least as good
citizens to make an effort to act In

therefore expresses its willingness to
make a fair and honorable effort to co
operate with the Progressive party to
bring about these results."

The Southern Building at present has nine stories.
Being completed only fifteen months ago, it is of
strictly modern architecture and equipped with every
