LONDON, Jan- Iβ.—After a long: bat

were two divisions In the commons,
Mr. Balfoar*s motion for Its rejection
being defeated, 258 to 3«>», while the
third reading , was carried by S«7 to
Althone/h the result of the division
was c foregone conclusion. Irishmen
outside and inside thtf bouse save tbe
raeasnre for which they had waited
*nd worked so long , a great sendoff on
Hβ way %o the lords. The nationalists
waived h&ts, handkerchiefs and fanes
and cheered lustily for Premier As
ouith and Mr. Redmond, who so far
fors/ot his usual impassivity as to join
in the demonstration.

lobbies to the house of lord.fi. which
formally passed its first reading. The
r rowds In the streets cheered long and
loudly, but a strong , force of 'police
prevented any organised demonstration
because of a fear of a clash between
opposing factions.
The division was preceded by another
s«Tie!s of brilliant speeches by Fred
erick E. Smith. Solicitor General Sir
John iA. Simon, John K. Redmond. Tim
othy Healy and chief
secretary for Ireland.
Redmond declared that the day of
victory for Irishmen had arrived.
"We know," he- said, "that the house
of lords is going to throw out the
home rule bill, but I believe the bill Is
grotug to pass into law within the life
time, of this parliament In spite of the
bouse of lords."
Andrew Bonar Law, leader of the op
position, eaid that the liberals had

the real demand, for home rule came
from the nationalist party, which had
SO votes to sell. The unionists, he
said, wotild remove the temptation

the Irish representation in West

tegrefted that the opposition merely

Concentration of Qapital Is
Defended by the Head
of Firm of Kuhn,
Loeb & Co.
Admits That Cash Recently
Has Been Concentrated
in Few Hands
WASHINGTON*. .Tan. 16. —Liberty of
Individuals to concentrate money and |
power Iβ the limit of their ability was j
advocated today before the house money
trust investigating committee, by Jacob
H. Schiff of the firm of Kuhn, Loeb &
Co. Mr. Schiff- declared Individuals
should be allowed to exert their ut
most efforts to concentrate fortunes and
power until the laws of• nature caused
the attempted monopoly "to fall of Its
own weight." .He "opposed concentra
tion through corporations and holding
companies." He could not s'«y "whether '
concentration had yet reached the point
where It was dangerous.
Mr. Schiff took the view, that depos
itors In banks were protected suffi
ciently under the present law "if ad
ministered by and kept up to the teach
ing's of experience."' He thought tn*re
waj» no objection to one bank selling ,
securities to another bank which it
owned, ac "prudence" would prevent
officers of a bsnk from a<-cept)n«r too
much of a doubtful security, and that
no further law was necessary.
"Too mu<-h law,"" he vaid, "can crush
the life out of a bank."
Mr. Schiff Admitted he had observed
the concentration of control of money
and credit In the last few years into j
the h*.nds of % few corporations and
that th*e* corporations Viad been cen
tral;z<M in the fcands of a few men. .
"Has this been a subject of concern
to you?" asked Mr. Unterrnyer.
"JZo, it has not."
"Would It be a. subject of concern if
It continued until all -control was In thyp
same hands?"
"I can't answer that question,*' said
Mr. Schtff.
"When asked if he had considered the
effect of concentration on his own
credit Mr Schiff answered, "I do not
require credit."
Mr. Schiff taid he thought the more
publicity we can have about banks the
better. He was opposed to one bank
owning another and was opposed, as a
rule, to all holding companies.
"I believe in individual freedom." he
said. "If an Individual goes too far, the
laws of nature will interfere. The
first great attempt at monopoly was
the tower of Babel. That fell of its
own welgnt. Every individual, monop
oly will do the same when it reaches
that point. '
"Have you ever thought what would
happen while such a monopoly was
growing and when it had fallen of Its
own weight?"
"No, I never thought of that," an
swered Mr. Schiff.
Mr. Schiff's testimony followed that
of George H. Reynolds of Chicago, who
told the committee he believed the con
centration of money and .credit now
had reached a point where it was a
"menace to the progress of the coun
The committee adjourned until next
Wednesday and probably will conclude
its hearing Friday, after which it will
begin formulation of its report.
"What are the ethics of the banking
business in connection with bond
issues?" asked Mr. Untermyer during
the inquiry.
'It is .not considered good form," I
said Mr. Schiff, "to create undue in
terference or competition by a banking
He added that e big banking houses
had corporations as their clients,
and that no other bond house would
endeavor to take the issue from the
banking firm recognized as the usual
fiscal agent of the corporation.
At the outset of the examination
Chairman Pujo announced that plans
for taking the testimony of William
Rockefeller will be made when the
committee reassembles next week.
George M. Reynolds, president of the
Continental and Commercial National
bank of Chicago, testified that the cap
ital of his bank was $21,500,000 and its
surplus 19,000,000. An affiliated trubt
company and an affiliated savings bank,
he said, had $4,500,000 between them.

Rev. Mr. Horn maintains an absolute

of a misguided twin brother, for whose

J of former trinkets of Mrs. de Torrea,

of his guilt. •
Morbidly „ curiotfs persons thronged

of his body within some hidden recess
of the edifice.
It was known that he was de-

I when last seen in the semidarkness of
I the chapel midnight Wednesday. But
the people who know him scoff at the
idea of Rev. Mr. Horn taking his life
and declare he is keeping out of sight
either because he is guilty of the
charges and is awaiting an opportu
nity to leave town, or else, through
fear of further interviews and ques

establish his true identity.

According to the statement of Mrs.
F. Stout, wife of one of the church
deacons, Mrs. Church came up to their
home at the end of Nicholl street early
yesterday morning and excitedly told
of an unknown man entering the
Church home at 112 Nicholl street dur
ing the night.
"She said she heard a window on the
porch, opening into Rev. Mr. Horn's
room, open, and some one step inside,"
stated Mrs. Stout. "Mrs. Church said
she did not arise to investigate the
