New York Banker Ready

If Offer Is Accepted, Dr. Fried

try and Attempt to Prove
That He Has Found
Way to Conquer White
'Swciil to The Times-oispateh.)
New York. January 24?Charten E.
Flnlay, president of the Aetna Na?
tional Batik, aald today that he la
ready to pay f1 000,000 t<> bring to Amer?
ica the tuberculosis serum discovered by j
Dr. E. F. Friedmann, of Berlin, if it
can be demonstrated in New York that
the treatment will cure ninety-five out
of e hundred cases.
To teat the cure. Mr. Flnlay pro
poees to hire a sanatorium in New York 1
possibly the Old Polycllnic Hospital in
Tbk I'-fourth Street, and treat 180
tuberculosis patients free of charge, j
The first of these patients will be bis
son-in-law. Rex I.ee Paris, a Princeton
athlete of the class of lew. who married
?us daughter, Neva F.stelle Flnlay. and
subsequent ly developed tuberculosis
Mr. Firlay said that bis Interest in the
.cure had its origin in his consideration
for bis son-in-law.
Writes to lir. trledmann.
About there weeks ago Mr. Finlay
reed of Dr Fried man n s success with
the serum and wrote to him Dr.
Fnedmann"s brother. Or.Arthur Iried
mauu. of Colorado Springs, took the
matter up with Mr t- inlay, and to-day
there was a conference at the Aetna
ink. at which Dr. baureson Brown.
?>f Saranac, was present. Mr. Finlay
received a cablegram from Dr. Fried
rnann in Berlin saying that offer looked
more reasonable 'han any previously
reteived Mr. Finlay expects to get
definite response from klm within
forty-eight hoars.
Mr. Finlay said thai he had offered
to pay Dr. had? buh's expenses to
this country and also the cost of a test
on a hundred patients, which will
amount to nearly tei.om
It is his hope, he said, to disco . ?r
whether the serum is effective, and to
that end he intends to give patients
every possible auxiliary treatment and
care. He intends to leave the sole, tion
of patten's bp New York physicians,
and no charge wiil be made.
He said thx' kaj had been told that
lir Friedniann ha* presented his cure
to the Imperial Board ol Health of i
Oer soapy, and the' the rtejbhr'.ta U for
the British empire and Russia have
been entd for lt.O?*? eich
"We Intend to make a thorough test |
of 'his serum." Mr. Finley said.
if ninety-five of the wo patients are
? ured it will have been established
as a cure. If 75 pel cent of thern are
cured the public will be informed, and
in the event of its failu'e that also will
be made known We intend to test
'the serum on tubercular cases in the
primary, secondary and tertiary stages
We will give it a fair trial We want
to find out also whether theafter-effen t?
are injurious?worse than the disease
Treat Poor Free.
"If the cure does prove efficacious
we shall establish a sanatorium near
New York, and perhaps a hslf dozen
throughout the country The poor
will be treated free.' and the wealthy
will pay us what they sea fit. I cannot
say whether the treatment will be made
public then, because Dr. Friedmann
tejls me the* in the hands of a bungler
it is as dangerous as a knife in the
hands of a maniac.
"No one" knowe how earnestly I .
hope that Dr. Fried mann's cure WBS
prove sbeoltite. I am not a rich man.
and $1.000.000 will take practically all I
have. But I shall consider myself for.
tunate to have had the opportunity
to help humanity. There are 12.000.Ort),
people with tuberculosis in the Cnited
States, and of theee sflO.ooo die a year, j
:*.*D0 in New York alone. And the
majority of them are young men. It |
is a young man's disease. I have great
faith in Dr. Friedmann."

Position?Other.i Are
Supporting Him.
I Washington. January ?4.?Secretary
Knox's reply to the British protest
against the exemption of American
coastwise shipping from tolls in the i
Panama Canal having been received
i in London it is incumbent upon ihei
British Foreign Office to conm to a |
decision at once as to the course to be
pursued in the continuance of the ne-1
gotiations. to determine whether the1
effort shall be continued to adjust the
supposed differences between the two
icoumries by further exchanges or to
'accept Secretary Knox's offer to ex
I change ratification of the Knox
[Bryce general arbitration treaty as
^amended by the Senate and refer to a
i special commission the task of finding
the actual facts as a basis of possible
Oppose knox's Position.
Senators favorable to arbitration
? were generally disposed to-day to go
'on record In opposition to Mr. Knox's I
position Senator McCumber. Kepub- ?
HbM and Hitchcock, Democrat, both
members of the Committee on Foreign
Relations, expressed themselves. Bena
i tor MeCumber said :
"The secretary s letter does not alter
the fa- l tha' we agreed by treaty to ,
treat all nations alike in connection j
with the canal and titat we also agreed
i by another treaty to submit all such ;
j questions as 'bis to arbitration
Senator !L'<hiock said The reply 1
of Secretary Knox demonstrates that ;
in exempting from tolls vessels engaged
in the coastwise traffic. Co tigress prac?
tically voted to subsidize American
ships at the expanse of the taxpayer*
He asserts that the loss falls on the
? American taxpayers and none on
British shipping. To my mind, this
piesents a reason for changing the law.
unless tvs are to embark on a program
i of voting ship subsidies."
Those who oppose arbitration were
pleased ?Ith the ICnOX note. Senator
Fletcher, of Florida said- Secretary
Knox i-ertainlv is right in saying that
there has tieen no violation of the.
treaty to date, i do not favor the
arbitration of the toll question nor the
reiwal of the law. but if it should be?
come necessary, I shcuid be willing to i
1 have the xshjele oueetien passed upon \
by oiir own teas ramie C?gV/t '
Senator Townsend said: "I feel!
'now as I have feit at! ?he time thst the
Senate acted within its legal right
under the treaty. I object to sub- j
nutting the matter to arbitration, and
if it should reach the point where it
?*onid be necessary to refer the matter'
to The Hague tribunal I would in pre- !
feren.e repeal the law because I fear
serious complications might arise
.through arbitration "
May Befer It to Brjre.
There is some expectation in official
circles here that the British Foreign!
Offne will facilitate the conclusion
..f negotiations by refening Secretary'
Knox's note to Ambassador Bryce? with
instructions tha' **il! give him practi-1
cally a free hand in dealing directly
with the Sc. r< 'ar\ of Stale and Chand

Considerable speeu^tion exists as to
the probable course of the British
government respecting the reserva?
tions contained in Sir Fdward CJrey s
note touching the provisions of the foils

tha* the British Foreign Office has re- \
frained from defining its position in

Suffrage Battle Now Is
Raging in House of
Commons. ?
Feeling Is General That Meas?
ure Will Be So Mutilated by
Amendments That Govern?
ment Will Not Push It to
Conclusion ? Harcourt
Makes Bitter Attack.
London. January 24.?The critical
stage in the forty-five-year struggle to
obtain votes for women a struggle
which was started in the House <>f
commons by John Stuart Mill iu
1*?7. was reached this afternoon.
Alfred Lyttelton immediately after
"question time" moved the amendment
to eliminate the word "male" from the
franchise reform bill. The mover s
arguments were along familiar line*.
He urged that the trend of recent legis?
lation was to call women into the coun?
sels of the nation. Already, he said,
women had been called to assist in
numerous departments.
Attacks III? Colleagues.
Lewis Harcourt. Secretary of State
for the Colonies,who nas not forgotten
the attempt made some months ago by
the *uffraiH;cttes to burn down his an?
cestral home a' Nunehum Hark, made
a bitter assault on wor an s suffrage arid
on his colleagues in he Cabinet. Sir
Edward Orey nad David Lloyd Oeorge
"The adoption of methods of viol
tgtsae, ' he urged, ' is an indication of the
type of mental balance we may expect
from women if they get the vote."
Mr. Harcourt averred that Sir Ed?
ward Orey and Uavid Lloyd Oeorge
were attempting to use the parliament
act to pass a proposal w*aJcll had never
been before the electors and which
would gravely imperil lhe stability of
that admirable amendment to the
British constitution.
"I am against any form of parliamen?
tary suffrage for women, on the ground
that it is bad for the State and bad for
the women themselves. I do not be?
lieve the majority of women want the
vot. If it were given them if would con?
tribute nothing to the happiness of
their homes or the safety of the coun-.
Mr. Harcourt maintained that if wo?
men were to be enfram hised the polu-y
of adult suffrage would be the only one
consistent with political hone*ty and
public justioe.
"Why does the chancellor of theex
chequer desire to exclude 1.000,000 work?
ing women ' he asked "Surely not
because t hey are no mi. I . domeetie ser?
vants. The chanceiloF of the exchequer
does not fear to take their pence for
ineuran e. Does he fear to take their
opinion?" ?
Replies to Harrourt.
I^ord Hugh Cecil said of the speech
by Mr. Harcourt:
"His antipathy ro the Orey amend?
ment suggests that he has been re- '.
cer.tly spanked or has never got over ;
tne indignity of being born of woman."
Lord Hugh characterized Mr. Har-'
court's speech as the most damaging he ?
ever heard against the present govern-;
-The government won the preliminary
skirmish on t h? bill last night. The
amendment proposed by Andrew Horar
Ut. the opposition leader, to reject
the Premiers time limitations in the
debate wa.- defeated.
At * o'clock the discussion was ad?
journed until Monday, when leaders
onboth sides are to be heard from.
The feeling was general in the lobbies
of the House that the government
would decide to withdraw the bill, in
view of the Speaker s recent ruling that
the , haracter of the measure would be
so changed by the amendments That
it would practically become a new bill.
Regarded as Bead.
London. January ii?The franchise
bill may be regarded as dead. and. with
it. the chance of woman suffrage being
dealt with until the next session of
Parliament. The only question is
whether the government will announce
the withdrawal of the bill before or
after the division on the amendment
of Sir Edward Orey, the foreign secre?
tary, eliminating the word "male" from
the bill
The spectacle of a Liberal minister.
I^wls Harcourt. Secretary of State for
the Colonies violently attacking his
colleague* yesterday for favoring wo?
man suffrage eomisels even the Liberal
'morning newspapers to confess that a
serious crisis ha* a-isen in the party.

merit to withdraw the hill because the
situation is so entangled that it will be

10 tlx price* was known to Judge Kibert
M. Oary. chairman of the corporation,
long before he gave ordeis that the
pools should be anoloshed. according
to William E. Corey, former president
of the corporation. Mr. Corey so tes?
tified to-day on cross-examination in
the government suit to dissolve the
combination under the Sherman anti?
trust law. The testimony preceded
an acknowledgment by Mr. Corey
that his resignation as president of the
corporation in into was the sequel of
a dispute between himself and Judge
Oary as to who was chief tn authority,
and that the finance committee of the
corporation had upheld Judge Hary.
If gave direct contradiction to testi?
mony of Chairman Clary before the
Stanley s'eel investigating committee
that with the exception of the "rail
< oinbtnation." which be said did not
fix prices, he had had no knowledge
of the existence of pools and had or?
dered them abolished as soon as they
had been brought to his attention.
This was in the latter part of 1904.
Knew All About Them.
Mr. Core.- swore to-day that -fudge
Oary knew about all the pools all the
time, hnceilfi he attended some of the
meetings." Although a meeting of
the plate and structural pool" in 1902
or 1908. was the only one at which he
could dislinctly remember that -fudge
'lary was present. Mr. Corey said, "he
was sure he was present at other
meetings ''
-"Are you sure that Judge Gary was
present at the structural meeting''"
asked C A. Severance, attorney for'
the corporation.
"Absolutely." answered Mr. Corey, j
enable ?o shake the testimony of the
witness. Mr. Severance held a brief
conf^rrpe* with his associate counsel.
You let? the h'teel Corporation with
eome ill-feejing loward Judge Oary,
didr. I you - ' asked Mr. Sev.-rance.
? We were not always in accord, but
I don't think it was ill feeling," re?
plied the witness. Mr. Corey then
acknowledged that there bad been a
uuestion as to whether he was chief
executive and that the finance commit?
tee had helped Judge Clary.
Mr. Corey could not be induced to?
day to alter his previous testimony that
the Tennessee Coal and Iron ( ompany
???? a steel rail competitor of the Steel
Corporation before it was taken over!
by the corporation during the panic
of 1907 with the sanction of President
Roosevelt He said he had opposed :
its acquisition on the ground that the
price was too high. John W. Gates
and others who controlled it had placed
? "nuisance value" on the properties,1
, he said, and it would have continued
as a competitor of the corporation. if
at had not been taken over.
Persists In Opinion.
Mr Corey also persisted to-day in;
his opinion that the price paid by the
Steel Corporation fir the iease of the
Oreat Northern ore lands was too1
high, although counsel for the Oreat
Northern ore trustees, defendants in
the suit, made every effort to refute his
Rumors became current in Wall
Street to-day that the United Steel
Corporation intended voluntarily to
dissolve. These were denied by Judge
Oary. The chairman would not com?

Washington. January 34.? Acoepting
as an argument a lengthy statement
denying the existence of a money trust
and charging the co-operation among
financial Interests to "rhe weak bank?
ing law", framed by Henry P. Davtsorv,
of J. 1'. Morgan A Co., the House
money trust committee tto-day closed
; for the time being its financial probe.
The statement of Mr Davison. pre?
sented by him as he left the witness
stand, was an analytical argument based
on the tables and charts presented to the
committee, "purporting to show control
of fii.000.000.ono of resources by ISO direc
tpr'r '
The statement denied this conclusion,
and set forth specifically that the firm of
Morgan A Co "believe* that there is
no such thing, either in form or in fact,
as a money trust." The committee did
not allow the statement to go Into the
record as testimony, but et an execu?
tive meeting voted to allow it to be
recorded as an 'argument. "
Can't Shake HI* Position.
Mr. Daeison differed with Mr.
Intermyer. counsel for the commrree.
in his assertion as to the concentration
and control of money and credit, and
the lawyer was unable to shake the po?
sition of the financier.
James J. Hill, railroad pioneer of
the Northwest, followed Mr. Davison
on the stand. He was examined briefly
as to hi* affiliations with various banks
and ratlroada.

London. January J4.? Some days
ust elapse before the situation aris?
ing from the revolution in Constanti?
nople becomes clear. As far as may?
be judged, there is no intention on the
part of the new Turkish government
to force matters or to resume hos?
tilities if any reasonsbie compromise
with the Balkan allies is possible.
A dispatch from Constantinople
to'-night. says the Council of Ministers
sat to-day to discuss the reply it will
make to the note rf the powers, and it
is believed this reply, while insisting:
on the retention of Adrisnople by Tur
i key. will point to Thursday s demon?
stration as a real manifestation of the
national will.
All Decline Place.
The new government. Is finding dif?
ficulty in filling the post, of Foreign
Minister. The portfolio has been
offered to several of the Turkish am
' bassadors abroad, but thus far all have
declined. I'ntil the ministry is rom
;i!"'".i by the appointment of a Sheik
( '-Islam and a Foreign Minister it la
probable that no definite steps will be
taken. Developments in the situation
are awaited throughout Kurope with
the greatest concern, as danger might
arise through active intervention by
The Balkan delegates to the peace
. conference in London show no desire
! for precipitate action. Thev have
accepted the advice of the ambassadors
I of the powers to await the reply of the
new Turkish government to the am
i baseadors' note before forming any
resolution as ro rheir future procedure.
Opinion among the delegates is greatly
divided. Some maintain it is useless
to wait longer, in view of developments
at Constantinople, which are considered
eloquent proof of the attitude the new
i ministry intends to take. Others take
J the view that it is Impossible for Knver
' Bey to he taken seriously.
In addition, they argue that the
Young Turks, who lost power owing to
the aboslute un preparedness of the
country tinder their regime in the wee
with Italy, cannot now have the sup?
port of a majority of the people, as the
same unpreparedness for which they
were responsible has been further
demonstrated to exist in the war with
the Ralkan allies.
Think It Pity to Walt
Maturallv the Young Turks some of
the delegates-, say. have worked very
hard to regain power. Their activity
has been especially marked in the
army, but It is not believed the bulk
i of the army is ready to support them,
j and these delegates think it is not im
! possible that, a counter-revolution will
I undo whatever was achieved hy tha
Young Turks Thursday. Those of
the delegates who do not think it wise
to wait longer say they consider it a
pitv to let the present opportunity pass
w:-ho :t giving Turkey a blow, taking
advantage of the confusion ensuing
by reason of the revoluyon in con
' stanttnople
As a whole, however, the allies im
itend. if poestble. to watt fo' furkey's
reply to the powers, and if it is unsetia
factory. to present an ultimatum to the
Turkish delegates demanding a cate?
gorical answer concerning the disposi?
tion of Adrtanople and the \egean
Islands Failing to obtain satisfaction,
the armistice will then be denounced
and hostilities resumed The Turkish
delegation to-night still was without
instructions from Constantinople. It
find? itself In an embarrassing posi?
tion, as Recbad Pasha and Selih Bey
are old Turks and Osnis" N atrtml
