but that, on the contrary, they were In
flagrant contradiction with the position
th Hamburg-American Line has em

toward other companies.
"The lines, therefore, refuse- to recognize
these claims and resolve to carry out the

without the Hamburg-American Line, with
the object of upholding an organisation
which has given entire satisfaction during
the long period of twenty-two years and

It Is understood that the Hamburg-
American's claims refer solely to the per-r-ntage
of westbound steerage passenger
business, which has heretofore been al
lotted to the North German Lloyd com
pany , The latter company received 4
per out. and the Hamburg line 43. The
Hamburg company wanted Its percentage
increased to 47.
After the meeting between reprcsenta
lives of thu Hamburg-American and North
Orinan Lloyd companies In November,
the former company declared Its Intention
of abstaining from the present conference
here unices assured In advanco that the
other Herman company was willing to
make concessions. This the North Ger
man Lloyd refused to do for the reason
that when that company built the steamers

Cecllle the Hamburg-American company
refused a similar claim of the Bremen
line. For this reason the North German
Lloyd company refused to recognize the
claims of the Hamburg company, which
were, based on the building of big ships
like tho Imperator and her sister boats
which are now on the stocks.

unofficially admitted at Ttcrlln that Ger

Much disappointment over the practi

pressed by the Herlln newspapers as his
appointment was relied upon to offset In
sinuations that Turkey's defeat In the
HaJkan war was due to the faulty train
ing of her army by Gen. von der Goltz.
This Indirect blow at German military
prestige has deeply wounded tho Kaiser,
who, according to the Dally Mail's Herlln
correspondent, personally settled the ap
pointment of Gen. von Sanders with Tur

Telegraph quotes a diplomatist as saying
that the treaty between Turkey and Ilul

It provides for mutual action in the ex

Suicide is believed to have heen the

Washington, Jan. SJ. President Wll
son let It be known to-day that he had ,
no Intention of asking Congress to pass '
a law regulating the operations of sloe 1
exchanges. It had been reported that Mr.!
Wilson had contemplated making a recom
mendation affecting stock exchanges ns a
part of the anti-trust programme that
he submitted to Congress on Tuesday.
Such reports, It appears, are without
It was learned that the Presi
dent regards the problem of stock ex
change regulation aB one entirely distinct
from those which he has endeavored to
handle In the legislative programme
outlined In his address to Congress.
Thn President made the statement that
he will confine his recommendations to j
Congress for legislation to the subjects
to which the Democratic party committed
Itself In the Baltimore platform. The
President said that the stock exchange
legislation was not promised by the Bal
timore platform.
This announcement substantiated tho
belief long held by persons close to tho
President that he considers himself com
missioned by the people of the country
to carry out a definite programme jf
reform through legislation and that he
has not the right of confusing his per
sonal views with those which the people
approved in voting for him In 1912.
Want Votlna; Power Limited.
Another subject on which the President
touched In his discussion with callers to
day was the suggestion, embodied In his
message, that It might be wise to In
corporate In one of the antl-monnpoly
bills a provision to limit the Individual
voting power of persons owning stock In
various corporations having common In
terests. The President explained that he hatl
not not ventured lo make so definite a
recommendation to Congress upon this
subject as upon others. He said that the
mind of the country w-as not so fully
made up on this question aa upon tho
others under discussion. He desired
merely to lay this matter Wforo Con-
grefs to be dealt with as that body
might see fit.
The President experts that full heatings
will be given by the Judiciary and Inter
state Commerce committees of the House
and Senate upon the bills to be Introduced
with the Administration's approvnl. He
said that he was sure the fullest oppor
tunity would be given to business men to
express their views at hearings.
The President expressed his approval
to-day of Majority Leader Underwood'
nctlon In procuring the reference to the
1 Committee on Interstate Commerce of the
' section of his message dealing with the
I Interstate Trade Commission and with the
new powers to be conferred upon the In
terstate Commerce Commlsilon. The
President referred to the division of labor
between the Judiciary ami Interstate
Commerce committees as a normal dis
tribution. It Is the President's belief that the Ad
ministration's anti-trust bills will make
comparatively even progress tluough the
House and Senatn ami that they will be
enacted approximately at the same time.
Attitude Toward llrpulillvans.
Inquiry was made of the President to
day as Vt whether or not the Republican
members of the two committees would be
consulted In the handling of the Admin
istration Mils.
Tho President Is perfectly willing that
the Itepubllcans shall be allowed pattlcl-
pation in the work Incident to perfecting
the trust programme. He, however, will
not Invite Republican members to attend
the conferences In the White House upon
tho measures as they approach comple
tion. He will meiely Invite the chairmen
of the committees and the chairmen them
selves will bo privileged to select th"
committee members who may accompany
them to the conferences.
Information which has come to the
President has assured listn thrtt Republi
can members of tho Judiciary and, Intel -state
Commerce Committees of both the
House and the Senate nre willing to par
ticipate In the formulation of the Admin
istration's programme. These assurances
In a measure have Inspired In the Presi
dent the belief that party lines need not
be drawn strictly In the forthcoming fight
for the enactment of the five corporation
It Is not the President's purpose that
the hill to confer upon the Interstate Com
merce Commission the power of regulat
ing the Issuance of railway securities
shall tie retroactive. The regulating power
shall apply, according to his plan, only to
future Issues of these securities.
