Impottiiut stocks sold at the open
ing of the stock market today at
prices unchanged from yesterdays
closing There arc no changes of
note and the speculative Interest was
very languid and the volume 01 deal
Ings at a low ebb
The absence of demand encouraged
selling and the copper stock Union
Pacific St Paul and other railroad
stocks fell slightly below yesterdays
final figures These losses wore made
up later when some large purchasing
orders were executed in Reading ad
vancing that stock to above last
nights close
The board room traders operated
lightly and frequently chanced their
position Prices advanced lightly and
frequently changed their position
Prices advanced before noon but the
movement was narrow and listless

I
I Minneapolis Sept fIAn unusual
situation confronted the six members
of the BalllngerPinchot congressional
investigating committee when they
mot today
Three Republican members Sena
tor Sutherland of Utah and Represen
tatives Donby and McCall refused to
attend the meeting which wtiss called
to order by Senator Nelson Not long I
afterward Mr Nelson himself left the I
room
Thus the four Democratic members I
and Vie Insurgent Republican are left i
without a presiding officer for the
I
time being The committee when It
met larked one loss than a quotum
and was unable to transact business
which could bo considered as bind
ing
I
Several attempt were made tot
force the attendance of the absen
tees but the chairman hold there was
no sergeant present although
such duty had been delegated to Sec i
retary Slemnn of the committee and
the members could not be arrested
I Presumably the reason for the fall
I ure of the Republicans to aintnln a
quorum was the possibility that the
Democrats being In control their ac
I tion of Wednesday in adopting a
e resolutloh declaring for the removal
I of Secretary Ballinger could have
I been ratified I
I The chairman sent the Democrats
and Mr Madison a notice calling a
I
i meeting of the committee I nChlcago
Sept 13 but the latter contended that
I I Mr Nelson has no authority to do
I
so
Representative Madison speaking
I for himself and the four Democratic
members paid
i
t The committee at its last session
In Washington adjourned to meet In
I Minneapolis September o for the
purpose of formulating reports to con
gress The committee met In pursu
I ance of this adjournment
There were eight members pres
ent constituting a majority At tho
i
request of the chairman we adjourned
to meet Sept 7 Wo met In pursu
I ance to the adjournment eight mem
bers nf the committee being present
Later Senator Sutherland and Rep
resentalvo McCall withdrew The
committee after the transaction of
I certain business then voted without
objection on the part of any mem
I ber Jo take a recess until today at
10 oclock I
At 1 oclock we convened Chair
1 man Nelson in the chair There were
six members present also the secre
tary of the committee Mr Sleman i
I immediately after calllnc the com
mittee together tho chairman read a
statement the substiincojEDf which
was that certain members were not
in the city and that one of them
Senator Root could not be here until
Tuesday and said there was two alternatives
ternatives for us to adopt to adjourn
I either until Tuesday In Minneapolis
or In Chicago on Monday
Tho chairman stated he would en
I tertain no other motion except to
adjourn to which protest was made
I as arbitrary and unfair and a mo
I tion was made to instruct and emnow
or the secretary of the committee
Mr Sloman being without a regular I
sergeantatarms to brln In Senator
Sutherland Representative Denby
and Representative McCall at once to
the committee I
The chairman said ho would enter
tain that motion as he felt there was
I two Ihlnggsg we could do adjourn or
I do what we could to secure the at
tendance of the absent members We
have done what we could to secure
I heir attendance Wo have Insisted
they should come to the meeting and
engage in dellgeratlous on the com
I mittee report I
They have so far refused There
has been no attempt to transact other
business BO far except that a motion
was made to tako a recess at 230 p
m which the chairman refused to
put but he said he would lot some
other member put It If Iw desired
I He repeated again that the only thing
we could do wits to adjourn or use
s h efforts as we could to compel the
attendance of a quorum
About 113J ne slated he desired
I to leave the room on an errand and
would be hack in a minute The com
I mittee has not voted to adjourn It
is legally organized and its action Is
binding
Minneapolis SP nBut six neml
hers of the BnlllngerPlhchot Investi
I gating committee one less than a
quorum were present when the seam
slon opoiiud today Senator Suther
land of Utah and two other Republi
cans Representatives Samuel W Mc
Call of Massachusetts and Denby of
Michigan refused to attend I
The failure of these three meliihor i
to attend when the session opened
I wns decided on last night following
the arrival of Representative Denby
Mr Donbv had declared that the ac
tion of five members who on Wednes
day adopted a resolution made by
Representative Madison of Kansas
I an Insurgent Republican which
I charged that Secretary Balllnger was
unlit and shouil be removed was the
most extraordinary Indefensible and
unjudicial that partisan politics could
devise
lu view gf that he said he wjuld
be absurd to moot with those mem
bers when they already had promul
gated their decision j
Moflr Sutherland and Mel tll took
a similar view and failed to appear
Chairman Nelson was the only Repub
lican member hoeldefl Mr Madison In
attendance and tho ineetiu wn ft
ulnrly called to order The Democrat
ic member proaent were Senator
Purcell North 1ltjkotx Flotcher Flor
ida and Reprc fIJUd Ollle Junros
uf K1PtiifK And Jams M Graham
of 11noi
Soon after mi > nng the committfu
4
room the Democratic members af
fixed their signatures to their find
ings which condemn the actions of Mr I
Ballinger as a public oftlcor and In
dicate GIfford Plnchot former chief
of the forestry department
Mr Madison prepared an independ
ent report which favors Mr Plnchot
and brought It to the committee room
Shortly after the executive session
began the secretary of the commit
tee Paul Slcmun was designated ser
gcantatit arms and directed to find
the absentees If possible and bring
them in In view of the positive dec
larations of Messrs Denby and others
that they would not attend his mis
sion seemed futile
The action was considered a mere
formality rwo of the members had
left tho hotel shortly before the com
mittee met and Mr McCall remained
his room

In this section of New Jersey Gard

In Redbank since August 21 and na
clue to explain his disappearance was
discovered until yesterday when his
body was found in a clump of bushes
six miles from town close to the
tracks of the railroad of which he was
the managing head
From the condition of the body the
police bellcvo that he was beaten to
death Tho murder was apparently
not committed by robbers as a largo
sum of money was still In ills pockets
and his Jewelry and a wallet full of
papers had apparently not been dis
turbed
The only clew to the mystery of his
death was offered by the testimony of
a woman living near the place whero
the body was found She told tho po
lice that she encountered two strang
ers who were Idling near the spot on
the day of Gardners disappearance
Their actions she said were such as
to arouse her suspicions but she said
nothing about them to anyone until
tho discovery of time = bo7estertlay
recalled them to her mind She was
able to give the police only meagre
descriptions of their appearance how

cording to the testimony given here
lu the investigation by the senate
committee into the affairs ofthe
Orange board of education
Under the school law the boards
have been advised that motif for one m

Therefore in Orange for Instance
with 110000 on deposit in the Orungc

National hank as a fund for the erec
