Dr. Friedmarm Is Coming
to This Country for
New York Banker Confident
Berlin Physician Can Prove
He Has Discovered Cure for
Tuberculosis ? Plans to
Give Everybody Benefit
of His Discovery.
(Special to The Times-Dispatch.)
New York. January J?. ? Charles E.
Kinlay, president or the Aetna Nation?
al Bank, who ottered last week to pay
ll.000.ouu to Dr. f*. K. Kriedmann. of
Berlin, if he would bring or send hts
auppoaed cure for tu bereu login to thin
country and have It proved effective,
said to-day that he knew that I>r.
Kriedmann would lufiy bring his cul?
ture here in person and that he would
sail tor the Inltcd Ktatea within a
couple or week*.
"I have insisted upon his coming
said Mr. Kinlay at bis home at Oreat
Neck to-day "Mia brother, who is
here in New York, has received a cable
from him telling that he is ready to
start for New York and will sail within
a week or two. He m corning here to
provt, his assertions that he has at last
found a tuberculosis cure and if he
should fad why there la nothing lost '
Mr. Kinlay aspactl to hear within
two or three days of the definite plans
of Dr. Flleillliailll He is glad that the
Merlin specialist has a, cepted his offer
Mr. Kinlay does not look upon the pay?
ment of the million dollars in the event
that the cure is a < ure as men of the
medical profession here in this country
do. He says he has offered it more as a
reward and to make it certain that
Amern an* have the benefit of the cure
He intends to make the culture public
If It is a sue ess ami to found hospitals
within and without New York where it
may be administered
A Business .Man's View.
"I regard it. with a business man's
point of view." said Mr. h inlay. Of
? ourse, I do not stand to make a dollar
by it. but it la worth while 1 think
to find out whether it is a practi> at cure
It cither heals Of It does not heal. I
am going to pay the expenses of finding
out whether it is a cure or not. That
means an outlay of (>erhapa t* ??
Hu' that isn't mm-h to risk if WS run
the chance of getting a positiv?? cure
for the white plague
"As regards Dr. Kriedmann accepting
the sum ot fl.oon.nrjo. I can't see why It
should raise auch s fuss. If he has
discovered u remedy he. deserves to
have the money. It would be a reward
My purpose in getting him to tome
over here is to allow him a tair and
impartial trial. I understand that he
has been treated rather badly on the
other side and is almost without the
fold American doctors even If they
think his aetions are unethical, will give
him a square deal Dr. I.awarson
Brown, of Saranac. will probably con?
duct the test, and he will be aided Ly
sui h men as the N'ew York medical
profession shall < noose to assist him "
Mr. Kinlay went on to say that what
he had heard about division <>f opinion
in Berlin over Dr Knedtnann's
supposed cure had caused him to make
investigation for himself before he made
the million dollar offer to him. New
York men whom he knew in Berlin had
looked into Dr. Kriedmann's record
and found it good and also through
his bank connections Mr Kinlay had
found that the Battta dOCSOr was likely
to be telling the truth when he said
he had a tuberculosis cure Negotia?
tions have been going on between the
two men for the past three or four

Stock Exchange Denies
Right of Congress to
Regulate It.
Believes, However, That No
Laws, State or National, Ever
Will Be Able to Stop Cer?

Organization Ablest to
Control Own Affairs.
Washington. .January M?M c m tiers
' of the House money trust co rn m 11'. ce
who are to draft a report on result* of
the inquiry into flnuncial affairs thus
far conducted, have before them for
consideration a brief just riled on behalf
of the New York Sto< k Exchange by
its attorneys denying that the federal
government has power to compel its
! incorporation or to regulate its affairs
The State of New York, it is ad?
mitted in the btief. has power to enact
laws for the guidari'e of the exchange,
though the belief is expressed in the
argument that no law. either by the
State or nation, will ?top certain 'rans
j actions. It is further a-serted that the
ti.?Tnbers* of 'he exchange are better
I able to control its affairs than any
1 legislative authority.
" We assert, ' says t he brief. that no
' regulation whatever is within the
, power of Congress. But we are far from
' asserting that the S'a'e is without
any power of regulation
"That the State may legislate with
respect to transactions such as im?
proper manipulation, is unquestion?
able. How effectively it can leg. -1 n ?
as to such matters is another question.
Hopes and expectations in that direc?
tion are apt to be in adverse ratio of
accurate knowledge and experience
. It is a regulation interfering with and
diminishing the responsible self-gov?
ernment of such an exchange that we
argue against as detrimental in an
incalculable degree as well to the
, interests of the public as those of the
Defending the rules of the Stock
Exchange, the brief declares that its
business is of neither interstate nor
foreign character, "nor do us oper
; ations in any respect come within
the sphere of the Federal jurisdic?
tion "
Kulea of the exchange, the brief
declares, prohibit manipulation, short
selling and general gambling, reports
I of which are said to be exaggerated by
the general public. The answer to all
j charges against the exchange is said to
lie in the statement that att transac?
tions are matters between customer and
broker with which the exchange has
nothing to do so long as highest stan?
dards of business honesty are main

The brief also contain* many legal
j decisions submitted to prove that the

ldent-Elect Wilson to-day addressed
a private gathering of prominent social
workers at the home of Mrs. Caroline
? B Alexander, where he and his family
j were week-end guest ?.
in a statement given out by Mrs.
Alexander setting forth Oovernor Wil
BOa'l remarks, he is quoted as declar?
ing that in forwarding the m o v e u., ? c ?
for a national bureau of health, it was
desirable t<> remove the impression that
? the government expected to set up a
!' medical trust " The Oovernor is
! reported as having said that there was
no intention to put any school of medi
' Ism in charge of national health pro?
jects, but that all schools of medicine
should work in harmony on the ques?
tion of sanitation, which he considered
most important.
Several speeches were made embrac?
ing immigration, child labor, contract
labor, workmen's compensation and
industrial relations. No newspaper?
men were admitted and Oovernor WU
' son could not be rea> hed to-night to
make any comment on the conference.
The statement given out at the Alex?
ander home quotes the President-elect
as saying :
"Every subject treated here to-day
engages pay deep interest and entnusi
iuni My enthusiasm is in proportion,
generally to the practicability of a
? scheme I have always been eager to
forward general principles, but I do not
feel the breath fill my lungs until 1 see
the practical plan. I hope you will
always rome. to me with plans and you
may depend upon me to consider those
plans with interest and friendliness.
Embarra-slng I*olltl<all>.
"Most of the things that you have
r spoken of arc without political ernbar
! raserncrit. One that does have a poiiti
i cal embarrasement is the health de?
part nietit problem. Already in dealing
with medical education m New Jersey,
wc have had political difficulties, be?
cause of the various independent schools
of medicine that have sprung up on all
bides. There is a fear :n many minds
that we are about to set. up what has
been called a medical trust and it is
very desirable to rtrnove that idea. I
bare never seen any serious proposal
? to put any particular school of medicine
in charge of the national health.
' With regard to the children's bureau,
another similar difficulty exists. My
own party, in some of its elements,
represents a very strong States' rights
feeling It is very plain that you would
have to go much further than Best
interpretations of the Constitution
would allow, if you were to give to the
governme nt general control over child
; labor throughout the country- It is
important to make it generally under
' stood that the purpooe of your bureau
is to collect and co-ordinate information
on the subject.
I "I Want, above all things, to enjoy
tee confidence of. and to have at my
eeervicc the information and counsel
of those who are engaged in these
fundamental things. Most of the
vitality of public action comes from
outside the government. The govern
1 ment does not originate. It responds
to public opinion You all try to re
gard ynurselvrs as sources plying upon
the government, and I hope that during
the next four years you will find a
sensitive part of the government at
the top."

Leaders Do Not Know
Wilson's Program for
Extra Session.
Believed. However, That Ques?
tions of Currency and Freedom
for Philippines Will Be In?
cluded in Scheme- Decks
Now Being Cleared for
His Administration.
Washington, January 26?Although
the ?COpS of legislation to be taken up
at tbe approaching extra session of
Congress has not yet been outlined,
congressional committees are rapidly
j pushing their preliminary work to a
1 point where reco/nmendatlons can be
I made to President-Elect Wil?on and
plans laid before him for the early work
of his administration.
Work on tariff bills will soon be
?terted, the hearings reaching an end
' this week The "money trust" end of
' the House Banking and Currency
t'ornmittee is already working on a
report, while the "currency" branch
of the same committee will push its
in ve.ungation this week into other
branches of the currency question in the
effort to secure comparative suggestions
for currency reform.
Senate and House leaders do not yet
know what legislation, if any. in ad?
dition to the work of tariz revision,
will be taken up at the extra session.
Several who have talked with Gover?
nor Wilson express the confident be?
lief that the currency question and the
question of liberating the Philippines
will be included m the new President's
scheme of action lor his first congres?
sional session.
It is the general opinion in Democratic
circles in Washington that President ;
Wilson will at least not "foreclose"
Congress against acting on everything
but the tariff in special session. A ma?
jority of the Democrats in the Senate'
expect little legislation outside the tariff'
'. to be taken up. but they believe Presi?
dent Wilson in calling the extra session
will not specifically limit its work.
Want Action Postponed.
An effort is under way by some :
Democratic Senators to poetpone ac-I
j tion on the currency until the next I
regular -e-sion, and it is expected that :
: a movement, will be promoted to secure ;
an extension of tho present Aldrich
Vreeland emergency currency law for
at least a year, so that an emergency
measure will still be at hand in case j
*>>f*rWWisrrial or flnanr la! distnrtsSWOSS. j
I nder this plan no attempt would be
? made to legislate on currency questions
! until next winter.
The full extent of the fight between
' the Republican and Democratic fac ?
tions la the Senate over President
Taft'S appointments is expected to'
develop this week. A Republican j
I Sill as. the first at* the session, probably
will be held early in the week and the
majority of Republicans now insists
there will be no concessions to tho|
Democrats, but that the demand will
again be made for confirmation of all
i of the appointments now before tho
The House will devote its time this
'week to the consideration of appro?
priation bills and by the end of the week
it is expected that several big supply
measures will be ready for the consid?
eration of the Senate.

Proposed System of Ap?

New York. January 26.?Reiteration
of their willingness to submit to arbitra?
tion the demands of their locomotive
firemen for increased wages and better
working conditions is contained in a
statement issued to-day on behalf of
fifty-four eastern railroads. The 30,nur>
members of the Brotherhood of Loco?
motive Firemen and Enginemen. em?
ployed by these roads, commenied
taking a strike vote after the suspen?
sion recently of protracted negotiations
between their representatives and a
committee of managers. The result of
the vote is not yet known
In their statement to-day the rail?
roads take exception to a quoted
statement by representatives of the
firemen that iheir report of the recent
conference* contained evidence "that
the responsibility for a failure to arbi?
trate all matters in the controversy
and thus avoid the turmoil incidental
to a strike ballot and the distress that
must tesiilt from a strike! rests upon the
railroads and not upon the locomotive
firemen "
In reply, the roads declare they have
signified to the men a willingness "to
gran: certain increases of wages" and
to apply to the firemen the cone-lusters
of the arbitration board which settled
the re?.-enf d i ffe re M es between the roads
and their engineers In addition to this
statement declared :
"The railroads are prepaied to arbi (
irate the present ease independently
by a board of five or seven men ap?
pointed by some disinterested authori?
ties such as <"hief Justice White, of the
I nited States Supreme Court, and Or.
C. P. Nell. I'nited St-atrs Commis?
sioner of Labor, as was done in the
engineers' case."
The statement was sent out by Ktisha
I.re chairman of the managers com?
mittee of the roads.
The break in the negotiations be*ween
the firemen and the roads, it wa?
generally understood, came through
differences as to the method of arbitra
tion. Both sides indorsed the principle,
but the roads declared in favor of a;
board similar to that which decided
vear the dispute of the engine, ?
while the Bremen insisted that arbitra
tion under the Erdman law whs the
proper course.

London. January 26 ? The Balkan
plenipotentiaries, who have received.
I full powers from their respective gov?
ernments, appointed a committee to
j day to draft a note to the Turkish.
! plenipotentiaries explaining why tbo
! peace conference must now be consid?
ered broken off. It is hoped the draft
will be ready for approval hy the full
delegation Monday nighf.
This action of the allies is part of a
scries of well-considered forms of
pressure with which the Balkan dele?
gates hope to obtain their object
without resuming the war.
The meeting to-day lasted for an
hour and a half, and the course to bo
followed was given earnest ronsidera
i tion. Two distinct views were mani?
fest od?one for the immediate rupture
I of the negotiations, leading to a re?
sumption of the war. and the other
' favoring a temporizing policy, in order
to avoid irrevocable steps. The latter
course triumphed and a committee was
appointed, consisting of one member
from each delegation, as follows;
Michael MadjarolT. Bulgarian minis-.
I ter at London; Professor Oeorgios
streit. Greek minister to Austria
; Hungary . Count Voynovitch. chief of
King Nicholas' Cabinet, representing:
Montenegro, and Dr. M. K. V'esnith,
Servian minister to Prance, with the
addition of M l'olitis. of the Greek
I delegation, owing to his knowledge of
' French and his thorough ai quaintance
! with international law.
Old Arguments Rehearsed.
Oeneral lines were laid down on
I which the note is to be drafted, com
I prising the arguments already set forth
many times as to why the league de
: mands the surrender of Adrianople and
the Aegean Islands as an indispen-a >lo
condition to the conclusion of peace.
That the policy of the allies is to
i gain time is patent ami does not douetvo
', anybody. The delegates declared that
j the advantages to be derived from lh?j
' resumption of hostilities would be m
i proportion to the risks they ran and
1 that they would not take that step
unless absolutely forced to do so. It
lie realized that even a partial rrverso
! would have grave moral and material
; consequences, apart from the loss of
i thousands of men.
In addition, the fad is not over
' looked that there is danger of Rumania
advancing from the rear and of Austria.
: imposing on Servia and Montenegro
; her conditions for remaining neutral.
The only disadvantage m delaying;
< decisive action is In keeping large armies
. inactive and on a war footing for a
'long time, thus heavily taxing both
the financial and agricultural resources
of their countries.

Constantinople dispatches received in
London confirm the previous accounts
of the revolt against the government
