Balkan Envo3s, on the Other
Hand, Insist They Will
Break Up the Lon
don Conference.
Adrianople the Only Stumb
ling Block in the Way of
Peace; Embassadors May
Find Solution.
LONDON, Jan. 2. Tho plonipotcn-'
tiaries to tho poaco conference on
joyed a day of general relaxation. ;
Fven the mooting of the embaa
narlors today was purely academic, as
all agreed that yestorday 's advances by!
Turkey had changed tho situation to j
such an extent that thoy must await
corresponding instructions from their
respective governments.
Tho Turks continuo to doelaro that
their concessions have surpassed any
logical expectation, but that now they
cannot code an inch more.
On the other hand, the allies, with
unanimous voice and compact front,
maintain that they would rather end
the- conference than renouueo what they
claim is due thctn by right of their vic
tories. That. the game is being played on
both sides is evident. Tho Turks cm
phasizo tho enormous imporianco of
what they have ceded, which in reality
is only what they have lost and what,
independently of the allies, not evon
lho powers would allow them to rocon
qner. Tho sillies, on the other, hrnuVbe-little-
tho Turkish concessions', thoj'
desire definitely to settle forever their
differences with thc Ottoman empire.
Compromise Suggested.
The real stumbling block is Adriano
ple. A compromise solution respecting
tho Aegean islands is .possible. Some
suggest that Turkey code them to the
powers, which cau decide their fate. It
is recalled1 that such a course has been
taken on other occasions, presenting
evon moro difficulties than the present.
For instance, in the war of 3866 be
tween Italy and Austria, Austria, al
though victorious, was induced to cede
tho Venetian provinces to France,
which transferred them to Ttaly.'
Supporters of this plan point that
Turkey might even cede tho islands to
the allies, as has practically been done
with. Albania, on condition that the
powers pledge themselves to claim, us
in the caeo of Albania, the right to de
cide the status of the Aegean archi
pelago. Bitter Struggle Certain.
The strugglo now will he bitter be
tween tho Turks and tho allies. Tho
former aro threatening to appeal to tho
tribunal of Europe; tho hitler arc
threatening to resume thc war. Jt is
expected, however, that relief from this
situation may result from Ibo meeting
of tho embassadors, to whose judgment
probably both Turkey and tho allies
will submit, if they decido unanimously
what tho J'ato of tho islands must be.
Thc powers arc particularly concerned
in this question, becauso some of thc
islands, Samothracc. !Imbros, Leinnos
and Tencdos, are of international im
portance, commanding tho entrance to
tho Dardanelles, whilo Mitylcno and
Chios bar thc entrance of tho gulf of
Smyrna. Tho rest of the" islands still
are in the hands of Italy, which occu
pied them duriug thc war with Turkcj-.
If thc powers unanimously ask Greece
to evneuato some of tho islands already
occupied, it is believed Greece Avill obey,
as she did at Avlona, ou lho shnplo in
timation of Ttuly, and as Scrvia and
Montenegro did on thc Albanian coast
.on the Adriatic, or prepared to do, in
order to plcaso Austria.
Embassadors Meet.
Tho embassadors today reviewed tho
whole situation without entering doop
y iuto any particular question. They
wiBh to havo moro concrete instructions
before they do so. In the meantime an
exchaugo of communications is occur-j-ing
between tho chancellories of thc
triple entente nnd tho triple alliance,
while a special understanding is devel
oping botween Russia, Austria and Italy
concerning Albania.
There appenrs to bo among tho em
bassadors a stroug current in favor of
the annexation of Crete to Greece, but
they claim that in exchange they should
bo entrusted with tho docisipu respect
ing tho fato of the islands.
regarding the frontiers of Albania,
the opinion prevails amonu the embas
sadors that, thoy will bo ablo to strike
a proper medium between the too re
stricted suggestions of tho allies and
tho too extended boundaries favored by
Austrin. It is reportod that the Rus

NEW YORK. .Ian. 2.- William
Rockefeller continued tonight to

house of representatives.
Charles F. Riddcll, scrgeant-at-arms,
at the head of an army of assistants
and detectives who for days havo been
trying tn subpoena tho financier, was a
witness in tho "money trust" investi
gation. Ho said tonight, that all his ef
forts to got iu communication with him
had been repulsed.
Dr. Walter F. Chapelle, tho physician
who is treating Mr. Rockefeller's
throat, has rofuscd to tell whero his
patient is, whilo John W. Storling, Mr.
Rockefeller's attorney, "would not be
seen," Mr. Riddell said when he went,
to the lawyer's office.
"I had hoped," Mr. Riddell stated,
"that all this publicity would shame
Mr. Rockefeller out and that surely to
duy ho would accept service, but I have
not heard a word from any of his repre
sentatives. "
Tho sergeaut-at-arms had no comment
to mako on tho report from Brunswick,
Ga...that Mr. Rockefeller wa3 in that
city. '

WASHINGTON, Jan. 2. A series of
conferences and a vast amount of digging
Into dusty tomes of law occupied the
members of thc houso connected with the
money trust investigation today in their
efforts to evolve a plan to secure thc
testimony of William Rockefeller, whom
the scrgeant-at-arms of the house has
tried in vain to serve with a subpoena
since last June.
Meanwhile Scrgcan-at-Arm.n F.iddoll
and a small army of deputies and pri
vate detectives camped about tho New
York homo of the oil magnate.
After talking with house leaders, and
with Jerry South, chief cleric of tho
house, Chairman Pujo of tho money trust
committee tonight issued a statement re
viewing lho attempts to secure, thc testi
mony of Mr. Rockefeller, in which ho
expressed tho. hope that It would not be
necessary to exert thc "full legal power"
of the house to secure scrvlco of the
subpoena. Mr. Pujo would not say what
plans were evolved to aid tho aergeant-ut-arms
in his work. JIc raid a meet
ing of tho commlttco would be called to
morrow or Saturday and tho matter
would be taken up formallj.
Look Up Precedents.
Members of the committee, after
pouring over thc precedents, were puzzled
ns to the exact method by which tho
house could enforce tho service of the
subpoena. Mr. Pujo, however, was In
clined to bellevo that tho laot that lho
committee had received, through attor
neys, not aoting officially, a physician's
certificate sotting -forth that Mr. Rocke
feller wac too 111 to testify, might bo in
terpreted as an acknowledgement by the
oil magnate that he knew that tho pro
cess had been Issued for him.
Mr. Pujo was of the opinion that, the
facts In the caso could be certified to
the housi.'. and an attachment for Mr.
Rockefeller isuuod by resolution. Thla
would allow tho sergnant-at-arms to
neiz tho witness forcibly.
While the house officials pondered tho
question at length a series of wild re
ports as to proposed plans for getting
tho eluslvo wltnoso circulated about Mm
capltol. One rumor wan that tho ser-geant-at-arma
was about to employ a
woman detectlvn to get the missing mil
lionaire. Another was that an attack In
forco was to bo made by tho deputies
stationed about the RockefoUcr home.
Still another was that tho military au-

THE contract for the construction
of tho Utah state capitol was fl
awarded to James Stewart & nfl
Co. yesterday by the capitol
commission. The amount in tho con- Ml
tract is $1,010,000, which was tho SB
amount bid by .Tames Stewart & Co. H
for tho construction of tho building, BH
exclusive of heating, ventilating, Bfl
plumbing and wiring. Tho bid, in- B9
eluding these items amounted to $1.- O
100,000. Tho commission reserves thc Bfl
right to award tho plumbing, heating, B8
ventilating and wiring contracts to H
James Stewart & Co. or to any other MM
contractor. MM
Whilo thc amount in tho contract is flfl
only slightly in excess of one million Ml
dollars, tho commissioners estimate that mm
tho cost of thc building will bo be- Hu
tv'ceu $.1,800,000 nnd $1,000,000. Thc jfl
commission makes reservations which jm
permit the commission to chango tho OH
material aud specifications in several wMI
particulars nnd the ultimate cost of wfi
tho building will largely depend on Dp
thc nature of the chauges. HI
Tho commission held "a long meet- ffl
ing yesterday and went over in detail M
tho bid of James Stewart & Co., and HI
tho chaugos proposed in materia aud IB
specifications. Thc commission ad- fl
jourued after 7 o'clock in tho evening Kf
and announced that tho contract had jin
been awarded to James Stewart & Co. M
The bid of James Stowart & Co. was M
the lowest submitted in thc competi- mM
To Prepare Contract. H
The contract wa3 outlined by tho BR
commission and R. Iv. A. Kletling. ar- Bfl
ohitcct, and Attorney General A. Bfl
R. Barnes were tlircctod to prepare it. mm
The preparation of thc coutract will Bfl
require sovcrnl days, and it will proba- Bfl
bly not bo ready for the signature of MB
tho commission beforo Monday. WBJ
Uudur the tonus of the coutract ibo HR
capitol commission reserves tho Tight JflB
to select practically nil thc material. MB
Thc commission has tho privilege or BjB
choosing several alternatives in mate- HB
rial and may roquirc from thc cou- flfl
tractor prices on various changes in NH
materials from the original specifica- BH
lions and if the price submitted by the SB
contractor is not satisfactory thc coin- HI
mission has the privilego of seouring HI
prices ou materials from other sources gjfl
or of advertising for bids ou mate- Bfl
rials. Tho commission is to make its gjfl
selections in tho ncsfc sixty days. jf
Thc foundation for thc building and th H
stcct work Is not Included In the spcclfi- Bfl
cations subject to change, so It is pos- Bfl
Elblc for the contractor to secure- thlc HB
material immediately that there- may be DM
no delay in beginning construction as Hfl
soon as thc excavation is completed. ijB
May Exceed $2,000,000. I
The contract as awarded docs not in- oflj
cludo hardware, interior decorations, fin
mural painting?, sculptural work, tcr- BRi
racing, furnishing, plumbing, heating and MM
wiring. With these items added, tha cost HBI
of tho completed building will probably IflH
exceed 92.000,000. RH
The contract specifics that the con- Oil
tractor shall uso Utah labor and Utuh iB
material wherever possible. It Is ex- Bfl
pected that tho contractor will find It ' BH
advunlaseous to uso Utah labor !n the Bfl
construction of tho building and no dif- Umm
liculty is expected on that score, Bwfl
Tho original specifications on whi:h Hjg
thn bids of thc contractors were based BB ffl
called for an exterior construction of His
granite, with terra-cotta oot-nlcn work tMm
and trimming. By increasing tho cost mm
somewhat the commission finds that it Is 1331
ablo to have an entire granite or marMc nfll
exterior up to the roof of the dome, und Bral
It is more than likely that the specif!- wfP
cations will bo changud to permit this. Kgji
Tho contract gives tho commission the ffffil
alternative of selecting, In tho next sixty
days, either granite or marble for the anPi
entire Htrueture.
! The commission has In view three dif- Rlj
fercnt granites, and a marble for tho ox- 1mS
tcrior of the capitol. Ono building stone RU
under consideration is the Utah granite gK?w
of the type used in tho construction of PSfH
