After Month's Work.
After hearings extending through
a month, the subcommittee of the
rouse District Committee today

of the Superintendent of Insurance,
the First National and Commercial
Fire Iaurance companies, and the
underwriting firm of Tuttle, 'Wight

The record is, closed except for the
arguments pi counsel and the filing
of their briefs. It was decided that
these may be, presented next Tues
day night, if ..counsel are prepared by
that time.
Scores Publisher.
George W. Inshamauperintendent of
Insurance, was again ton the stand to
day; but chief Interest' in the hearing
centered In the testimony of James F.
Stone, of the American' Union Fire In
surance Company, oC&hiladelphla, who
scored Alfred M. Best, an Insurance ex
pert of New York, and publisher ot an
Insurance Journal.,-
Mr.. Best had furnished the committee
at the contention of .the1 defense that
BesVs attitude toward new companies
Is "unreasonable."
The witness said he and his company
had been "persecuted" by Best, and
that when he went .to .New York to see
the publisher of the insurance paper.
Best suggested that "It will be nice If
you would buy some of my books."
Refused to Buy.
Sir. Tione said' he refused to buy the
books and that the management of his
company was rated "poor" while an
other Philadelphia concern, which pur
chased the books, had a better ratlOg.
Chairman Johnson, indulged In criti
cism unfavorable to Best at the con
clusion of Mr. Stone's testimony.
"I know nothing about the affairs of
the Commercial and First National."
said Mr. Stone, who explained that he
was president of the American Union
Fire Insuranco Company, a compara
tively new Philadelphia concern.
Attorney Carusl asked thr witness to
relate what had transpired at his In
terview In New York with Mr. Best.
"Our company was started In the

.Mrs. John B. Henderson, who cut'
down the "tree obstructing the View
of the White House froni her "castle"

nue, will replace that tree at her
own expense, according- to agree

Pending the reaching of this agree

Tenth precinct police officials mis'
pended service of the warrant 'for
Mrs. Henderson's arrest.
Her View Is Doomed.
As was exclusively told in The Times
yesterday. Mrs. Henderson spared not
that tree' because It blocked her ,ytow
of the Executive Mansion, and thereby
caused the swearing out of a warrant
for the arrest of this wife of a former
United States Senator, society leader
and extremely wealthy real estate
holder. The view from: the Sixteenth
street "castle" no- bids fair to be
blocked' again, for Mrs. Henderson

After a recess of one day, speaking on
the measure was resumed this after
noon. As it was a foregone conclusion
that the lords would' defeat the meas

their rejection would be impotent to
prevent the enactment of home rule,
there was not much of a crowd to hear
the debate. The peace delegates were
in attendance and prominent members
of the house of commons. Including
most of the Irish leaders, were given
places at the bar of the house, or be
hind the woolsack.
The seats reserved for the "Princes

Home Rule Issue
In Election Held
In Ulster Today
LONDONDERRY. Ireland. Jan. 3rt.
With home rule for Ireland the para
mount issue in Ilrltlsh politics, pending
at Westminster, the most Interesting
and closely contested bl-electlon ever
held hero, is being fought out today.
The balloting will decide the rival
control of the province
made bv the Nationalists (for
home rule) nnd the Unionists .against
home rule).
Although Ulster is generally spoken
of as against home rule, the Unionists
hold only seventeen of its parliamentary
seats, while the Nationalists hold six
teen. The Unionists controlled seven
teen constituencies, though they have
had but sixteen members since the
recent death of the Duke of Aber
corn. Ilia son. the -Marquis of Ham
ilton, wus the Unionist member for
Londonderry, but he was compelled to
succeed to the dukedom, which took
him out of the commons and into a
sent In the house of lords.
The Nationalists have been making
desperate efforts to capture this seat,
whlcn would give Ulster a home rule
majority, nnd when the voting began
today It appeared that they had excel-'
lent chances for success.

chance to make a close inspection of
the interior of all. the great buildings
