SiiANUMAi, ,lan. 9.- Ily order of the
Governor of Hunan Province a woman
wns publicly shot at Changsha to-day
for disobeying the prohibition of opium
smoking. A great throng of people
wntched the Infliction of capital punish
ment In a puhllc'place.
I.'nder recent treaties with flreat
Diitalli and other countries China
agreed to prohibit the use of the drug.
On Christmas Day an edict was Issued
prohibiting people from Indulging In the
habit In order to savo them from a llfo
of degradation. Notwithstanding this
It was asserted that the manifesto was
not being enforced In the central prov
inces and a formal complaint wns made
to tho Pekln authorities by tho Hrltlsh
Minister. The Governor of Hunan evi
dently received strict orders to enforce
tho mandate, and to-day Imposed tho
capital punishment In the most public
manner possible In order to Imve a
atrong effect on recalcitrant natives
who do not wish to give up the habit.
Charges have been made that tho
Chinese Government was not enforcing
tho prohibition HKalnst the growth of
the poppy and that the authorltlcn had
winked at the holding up nf $60,000,000
worth of Indian opium In Shanghai nnd
Hongkong warehouse in order to pro
tect the homo trade. To-day's execution
was the first open nttempt of tho Chi
nese Government to put the prohibitory
laws Into effect.
Canton, Jan. 9. The authorities here
are making energetic efforts to try
to suppress the opium trade. They Hre
prosecuting dealers and are seizing
Chinese owned opium as well as cer
tlfted Indian opium In transit.

F. V. Fox, Tndinnn Hotel Man,
Charges Gamhling Fraud
in Arkansas.
SAYS HE WOX 20,000
But Ho Then Had to Cash Pig
Cheek "Friend" Dropped
That, and Pile, Too.
Hot SrniNas, Ark., Jan. 9. On of
the worst gambling scandals ever
sprung In this city wns mado public
to-day when Frank P. Fox, a wealthy
hotel man of Tcrro Haute, Ind., caused
tho arrest of Arthur Slavln nnd Joe
Abcrly, employed nt tho Indiana Club,
and had warrants Issued for four others
of that gambling house charging them
with grand larceny. Not only ore the
city und county authorities Investigat
ing Fox's story but the Tcrro Haute
man nlio has placed tho case In the
hands of two United States marshals
and action on the part of tho Govern
ment Is expected.
Fox claims that he was swindled out
of $20,000 In tho Indiana Club, nnd his
story, If It can be substantiated In court,
will show one of the smoothest urrange
ments for a transaction of this kind
ever heurd of in Hot Springs. Seated
In the office of his attorneys, Martin
and Wooton, Fox made the following
"Iist Thursday myself and n number
of gentlemen were seuted In the lobby
of the hotel, when Mr. James came up
to us. Ward was acquainted with one
of the gentlemen In the party. I was
presently called off to one sldo. Mr.
Ward explained to me that his brother-in-law
was assistant mannger of the In
diana Club. He stated that his brother-in-law's
name wns Joe Denton. It wns
explained to me that Denton had fixed a
roulette wheel in the Indiana Club so
that he and Ward could win some,,
money, provided he would bring some'
men along, men of considerable means,
so that It would look like these men had
a chance to win.
"1 came to Hot Springs with Ward
last Friday. Upon arrival It wns ex
plained and demonstrated that It would
be possible to win. This conference
took place In the ladles' parlor of the
Indiana Club. On Friday evening, about
7:30 o'clock, the play staried. 1 won
$36,800 In about fifteen minutes. This
wns to be deposited In a local bank to
be divided between five In the crowd, In
cluding a friend of mine, Ward, the
dealer, Joe Denton nnd myself."
Fox explains that when he won his
money was refused him, tho statement
being made, he alleges, that the club
declined to pny until ho could prove
that had be lost ho would have lieen
able to make good. He Mates be later
cashed his own check for $20,000. which
lie had tendered when he clnlms he
started to play the wheel, and that after
be had deposited the $20,000, the amount
of his check, he received from the In
diana Club a due bill for $16,700. cover
ing the amount of his cneck and the
$20,700 he alleges be won. Continuing,
Mr Fox says,
"Upon later presenting the due bill
I was told the club did not have nnv
money to meet the same, but would send
out nnd get it. Ward nnd the rest of
us retired Into nn adjoining apartment
where we had a bottle of wine. 1 wns
awaiting the return of the money. Ward
left tho room nnd ls supposed to have
played tho due bill In one of the games
nnd lost."
Fox is the man who assisted Detec
tive Hums In kidnapping McNamara
and speeding him out of Indianapolis.
H waa Fox's automobile the chief of
the dynamiters was placed In. Fox said
to-night he will get his $20,000 back or
spend twice that much to close gam
bling In Hot Springs.

For months tho Manhattan Club has
hnd under discussion n proposition to
leave their present clubhouse nt Madi
son avenue nnd Twenty-sixth street and
movo further up town. A number of up
town sites have been under considera
tion. There have been freijucnt ballots
taken by tho members as to whether
they should remain In tho old club
house or buy a site In tho neighborhood
of the Hotel Manhattan ami build.
It was ascertained last night that
after all the ballots had been thor
oughly canvassed and nfler frequent
meetings of tho board of governors tlm
preponderance of predilection la for re
maining In tho old clubhouse, and It
was therefore announced Inst night that
further consideration of an uptown site
has been abandoned.
The proposition Is to buy the present
clubhouso and eventually rcnovato It,
for there are many real eatato authori
ties among the membcra who believe
that eventually tho present file will be
very valuable.

Wamiinhton, Jan. P. From another
commanding figure In tho financial
world the Pujo Investigating committee
of the House has learned that faith and
conlldf nco In the Individual ls the basis
on which banking and other business
enterprises are founded.
"Confidence nnd not facts Is what Is
needed," was the way George F. Baker
of the First National Bank described
the situation.
This reply came In response to the
committee's repeated suggestion that
national banks should be compelled to
disclose to tho public a full list of their
assets with the exception of loans. Mr.
Haker Insisted that such a law would
bo prejudicial to the business lntereala
of the country nnd that bank depositors
with the examinations now made and
tho public report of a general character
now required arc sufficiently protected.
It all came back, in Mr. Baker's opin
ion, to the question of confidence In thi
officers and directors of a financial In
stitution, nnd without that laws requir
ing publicity of assets and other de
tailed disclosures would avail nothing.
Sir. nakcr Aid lnretla;ator.
Mr. Baker was on the witness stand
for almost four hours, and like hU
cloo business associate, J. p. Mor
gan, ho retired leaving the Impression
that he had tried to bo absolutely frank
with the investigators and to aid them
In every reasonable way In their search
after a "money trust."
llepcatcdly Mr. Hakcr yielded hla
views In regard to the privacy of his
own personal affairs and disregarding
the suggestions of his lawyers laid the
facts before tho committee. He ex
plained on ono occasion that he did not
bi'llevo the committee had any mor
right to ask him what his personal hold
ings In bunkH were than it had to In
finite into his tailor bill. Yet he pro
duced alt of this Information because ha
professed a desire to aid tho commutes
In Its work and not even to appear to
be concealing anything.
Tho commltteo had not finished with
Mr. Hakcr nt tho conclusion of to-day'
hearing und he will resume hla testi
mony to-morrow morning.
Like Mr. Mnrgnn, Mr. Baker seemed
to be embarrassed when Samuel Unter
mjer, counsel for tho committee, sought
to Impute to him great power over tha
flnanclnl institutions of the country. Ha
nover waa conscious that he exercised
couliol over tbe First National Bank,
or, for that matter, that anybody tlsa
did. The bank In fact practically con
trolled Itself, lie said, and they were aj
very happy nnd harmonious lot.
l omninnlly of Intrrrat.
Mr. Baker's testimony disclosed that
there ban been a community of Interest
between himself nnd Mr. Morgan and
Mr. Stlllnjau in recent yeara In other
mutters than the purchase of a majority
stock of tho Kqtiithble Life Assurance
Society. The fact was brought out that
the purchase of two large blocks of Na
tional Bank of Commerce stork from
the Kqultuble und the Mutual Life com
panies soon nfter Mr. Morgan got con
trol of the Kqultiible Involved an under
standing between these three parties.
Mr. Baker bought the Kqultable's hold
ings nnd Mr. Stlllman the Mutual Ufa's,
but later there was a division of tha
stock, In which tho Morgan Arm shared.
.Mr. Baker disclosed that tha First
National Bank Interests bought control
of tho Chase National Bank several
years ago with the Intention of con
solidating the two banks. He made It
known for the first time also that tha
stock of the Guaranty Trust Company
had been purchnsed from the Mutual
Life In the Interest of the Bankers
Trust Company and that It was tha In
tention at that time to merge the
two Institutions. In both cases, how
ever, nil Idea of consolidating tha In
stltutlons has been abandoned,
nUcunaea Vollns; Tramt.
Mr. Baker discussed wltftt frankness
the advisability of having a voting trust
control the affairs of a big financial In
stitution. Ho never would consent ta
such an arrangement for tha First Na
tional Bank. Ho reviewed tha purposes
and conditions which led to the organ
ization of tho First Security Company,
declared that he could sea no objection
to allowing a bank to hold atock con
trol over another and professed to ba
lleve that the service of a single dlreo
tor on the boards of competing rail
roads was a good thing for each Una. ,
