CULLS GUVIS D Counsel for Ballinger Character izes Roosevelt Administration "the Reign of Men." Washington, Mnrch 27. Tho Hallln-Tor-Plnqhot Investigation entered Ipon n now stage yesterday. The 'prosecution," so-called, rested nftcr die Joint committed had refused to mil Secretary Ilnllinger ns one of Its A'llnesscs and nftor Ixmls Urnmlcls, Utornoy for former Special Agent I.. R. Glavli", lind Rpoken very blttorly about thnt decision. The opening of the ease for Hal linger wns made by the Tennessee attorney, J, J, Vertroes, who voiced his opinion of ex-Foroster Olfford Iinchot, and especially of Mr, Olavls In exceedingly pointed lnwrungc. He described Mr. Glavls as a man who had acted ns a detective so long that lie had formed tho habit of denounc ing people. Ho was a handy tool, the nttornoy declared, to Mr. Plnchot, who used him In tho campaign of vltuporn tlon and detraction against the sec retary of tho Interior, Mr. Vertrees's statement spiv-kled with epigrams. Tn one of these, re forrlnpr to tho acts of officers of thp noosovoU administration, the nttor nny said: "Then was the reign of men. March 4, came the ielgn of lnw AIMED AT ROOSEVELT. Although Mr. Vertreea was partlcular- Iv referring to Messrs. Garfield and Pin v-liot, some members of the committee were Inclined to construe tho statement ns a film? nt Mr. Roosevelt and so ex pressed themselves. Tho growing bitterness between Attor l.i ys Vertroes and Hrandels manifested Itself' In several sharp exchanges. Tho demands of Mr. Urantlels, first, that Mr. Halllnger appear ns a witness to bo examined for the "prosecution," nnd later, that he be required to appeal as tho first witness for the "defense," mused lively discussions between coun sel and among membors of the commit tee. The first request was unanimously denied. Tho second request, made during the afternoon was considered In execu tive session for 40 minutes, nt the end of which It, likewise, was denied. COMMITTEE HAPLY SPLIT. The vote on the second proposition stood 8 to 4 nnd was taken to Indi cate by many how hopelessly the tommlttee is divided and as presag ing In the end a majority and mln silty decision. Representative Madi son of Kansas, Insurgent republican voted with the democrats. Senator Purcoll, democrat, of North Dakota, voted with tho republicans. Representative James put the mo tion that Mr. Halllnger bo compelled to tako tho stand ns the first witness on his side of tho case nnd It was on this that the vote was taken.

The Standard this morning devotes a long editorial to lronlcnl references to Theodore ltooso- vclt's prowiesr Heferrlng to a recent rumor that the ex-preslilent lind received an offer of the !ost of adviser-general to trie Chlniso empire, tho Standard says ho Is obviously tho vory mnn for tho position. It remarks that the ordinary traveler require months of study And observa tion before venturing an opinion on foreiim nations. With a "man of genius" It Is otherwise. A few weeks, spent main ly on the car nnd steamers and at tho hotels, qualifies him to pronounce Judg ments for the Instruction of the listening nations. "We look forward with keen anticipa tion," tho editorial concludes, "to Mr Roosevelt's discovery of tho Hrltlsh Isles, nnd his candid remarks on our shortcoming Wf might return the com pliment by sending, say, Mr. Asqtilth to ledum the citizens of the United States on their ii.n lon.il defects and Imperfec tions." RADICAL TRESS DISPLEASED. In denouncing the assassination of the late Premier Houtros Pasha Ghall, Colonel Roosevelt did not mince hln words with n view to avoiding offence to the nationalists, a Kreat part of whom openly sympathized with tho assassin. The radical pros takes exception tn tho Amerb remarks and even the moderate WMminster Gazette says editorially "Disquisitions upon tho readiness or the reverse of Egypt for sclf-govorn-ment, while permitted to men without great position nrt, perhaps, better hushed In tho breasts of ex-prcsl-dents." Recalling Mr. Gladstone's pronounce ment In regard to the early Indiscre tion of the present Lord llalsbury, "mistakes whlrh are pardonable In a private Individual becomo scandalous In an o-r.nllcitor-goncrnl," the Gaz ette recognises Mr. Roosevelt's desire to bo friendly nnd helpful to Great Hrltaln, but says that his pronounce ment Is imi calculated tn make easier the path of the government In Egypt TORIES IirOin.Y GRATIFIED. On the other hand, the tory press Is highly laudatory of the fearless declarations. Tho Pall Mall Gazette considers that the American statesman hns done service not only to the Egyptlnns but to tho cause of human progress throughout tho world. The paper adds: "Mr. Roosevelt Is providing our puling sentimentalists of the Kelr Hardle breed with a healthy spectacle of tho representative of the greatest democracy In the world giving pseudo Arabic, "Down with autocracy" "Glvo us a constitution," Tho demonstrators were applauded by many spectators and Home of the. guests left the hotel, fearing violence. Colonel Roosevelt was not In the hotel nt tho time, but drove up shortly afterwards. Ho said he had heard n noise, which re minded him of American college cries, but ho had no Idea that ho was the cause of It. Another protest meeting was held this evening, nt which speeches less violent thnn at the first meeting made made. Great efforts were put forth to Induce Colonel Roosevelt to nttend, but he smilingly declined.

News of Professor Agaaslz'.s death came as a rival surprise and shock to his friends and relatives. He had been heard from frequently since lio went abroad about New Yenr's time, and so far as hl- Intimates knew he was In tho best of health.
