COMMinEEENDS
MONEYJNQUIRY
Will Recommend Amending Na
tional Bank Law.
JAMES J. HILL IS CALLED
Railway Magnate Questioned Briefly
About Matters in Which He
Is Interested.
Washington, Jan. 25.—Accepting, as
an argument, a long statement deny
ing, the existence of a money trust
and charging the co-operation among
financial interests to the "weak bank
ing law," framed by Henry P. Davi
son of J. P. Morgan & Co., the house
money trust committee closed, for the
time being, its financial probe.
Thie committee did not allow the
statement to go into the record as
testimony, but, at an executive meet
ing, voted to allow it to be recorded
as an "argument"
Mr. Davison differed with Mr". Un
termyer, counsel for the committee,
in his assertions as to Jite concentra
tion and rontiol of money and credit
and the lawyer was unable to shake
the position of the financier.
James J. Hill was a witness for
twenty minutes He was examined
by Samuel Unteimyer, who directed
his questions largely to cumulative
voting of minority stockholders in
corporations and to whether Mr. Hill
thought the law ought to give minor
ity shareholders in a corporation rep
resentation on the board of directors.
As to the latter Mr. Hill declared
that the framers of such a law might
aim to do good, but might do infinite
harm.
Marketing of Securities.
Robert Windsor of the firm of Kid
der, Peabody & Co., and Gardner M.
Lane of Lee, Higginson & Co., both
of Boston, were examined as to par
ticipation of their concerns with J. P.
Morgan & Co., -the First National
bank, the National City bank and
other New York financial institutions,
in the marketing of securities.
Francis L. Hine, president of the
First National bank of New York,
was the last witness. Mr. Hine was
questioned as to the practice of his
bank, Morgan & Co., and the National
City bank, in handling jointly issues
of stocks and bonds. He said that
participations in bonds issued in this
fashion were usually accorded to the
banks in which he and other mem
bers of the issuing firm were inter
ested He saw no objection, he said,
to officers of these banks underwrit
ing a portion of the participation ac
corded their banks
The committee will begin within a
week consideration of its report,
which will recommend changes the
national bank law and legal control
of various financial agencies, Mr.
Untermyer said that the investiga
tion, as originally planned, had gone
as far as it could under the present
laws, but an effort would be made
later to continue it

ing collapsed. A sale was in progress
at the time. Flames quickly swept
the wreckage and it was first believed
that fifty persons had been killed.
The department store occupied

by the implement firm.

KAZIM PASHA IS KILLED
Popular Sentiment Clamors tor
Saving Adrianople or Par
ish in Attempt.
Constantinople, Jan. 24— Peace at
almost any price is a decision of yes
terday with Turkey. War to a finish
or Adrianoplo is the decision of today
and it is sealed with the blood of
Nazim Pasha, former war minister
and commander-in-chief of the army,
and the resignation of the ministry
that sought to avert further conflict
The crisis came with startling
swiftness Quiet hardly had been re
stored after the government was
forced to surrender to the demands
of a great crowd, representing all
classes of the proletariat, that de
manded that the cabinet resign, be
fore the commander of the Tchatalja
lines was shot dead by Enver Bey,
one of the leaders of the Young Turks,
who figured prominently in the earli
er affairs of the day, or his com
panion.
The two were passing the porte
when Nazim Pasha's aide-de-camp
opened fire on them from a window.
They returned it. Their bullets struck
Nazim Pasha.
Despite the tragedy there was no
disturbance elsewhere and the public
in general seemed engrossed alone in
celebrating the return of the Young
Turks to power.
Proclamation Explains Action.
The committee of union and prog
ress issued a proclamation explaining
its action. It declared that while the
Ottoman government, under Said
Pasha, carried on a victorious cam
paign in Albania the succeeding gov
ernment, under Mukhtar Pasha, ruined
Turkish authority in Albania. It
thereby excited the appetites of the
Balkan powers.
The proclamation further charges
that the Kiamil government was dis
playing' unjustifiable weakness in the
peace negotiations, while the allies
had won the powers over to their side.
It declares that Kiamil Pasha be
trayed his country by offering to yield
Adrianople and the Aegean islands
and, to conceal his treason, summoned
a consultative assembly.
"T he Ottoman nation," the procla
nnuon concludes, "could not endure
such a government headed by a trai
tor and thus exercised its right of
re\ohu'on and the sultan was asked
to Siimmon a cabinet which will be
able to take the fullest advantage of
the nation's strength to protect the
fntherland
"The Ottoman nation cannot sacri
fice its rights and will employ all the
means in Us power to defend them
and show that it wishes to live with
honor"
HASTEN TO CONSTANTINOPLE
British Warships on Their Way to

London, Jon. 26.—British warships

United States, Spanish and German
vessels already are in the harbor and
the British ships at Malta and the
Italian vessels at San Marco were or
dered to proceed to Constantinople
forthwith.
While the ambassadors were in ses
sion at the foreign office the Balkan
peace delegates called a conference at
which it was planned to decide on the
recommendation to be made simulta
neously to their four governments re
garding the termination of negotia
tions.

OPEN OUT YOUR HAND.
Then Note the Effort It Require* f»
Keep It From Cleeing.
Many tuouKnudtt of years have dtp
ed since the aih-etitorM of man livwl bj
trees, lit IK never to lie forgotten thai
though ape-like foriiw they wer*» net
ajieto Vrt. iu xpite of these ten* of
centuries that hare passed by. mail na»
not yet forgotten the instinct of nelf
preservation iu the forest. As he waa
a tailless mmture he was coin|iellei
to depend for his safety on the grasp
ing |H\ver ot his hands and feet. For
many ages, however, be had gradually
been going on the ground more an*
more and in the trees less and lesa
that his feet became more adapted for
walking and liia hands exclusively far
grusping. with the result that the grip
and muscular strength of his hands be
came Immense. This Is still moat pow
erfully evidenced in a young baby,
which, without muscular development
can within a few days of birth baaf
by both hands to a stick for as much a*
five minutes at a time and by one bani
only for two or three, a task beyoai
the power of any adult except an ath
lete and gymnast.
But a fact which is still more re
markable Is that to the present day
there is not one of us tbut can hold bh)
band o|ien without discomfort and
absolutely no one whose hand will stay
open at all unless the will is exerted to
that end Try it! Hold your hand
o|H*n for three minutes by the watch
and see how tired-you will be.' Lay
your hand on the table, the palm oa
the wood, the fingers over the edge, and
see how. In spite of yourself, they will
curve round and grasp it. Look at tbft
hand of a *-leepiug person and think If
the fingers are ever shown to be out
straight.
When the anatomy of the hand la
taken up it will be found that on the
palm and on the under side of the
fingers are numbers of nerves sensi

EGYPT'S GREEN SUN.
A Phenomenon That Waa Commented
Upon by the Ancients.
The appearance of a green light as
sunset was noticed and commented
upon by the ancient Egyptians and
more particularly so because in the
clear air of Egypt the tints of sunset
are peculiarly distinct.
As the sun there descends nearer
and nearer to the horizon aud is iro
meusely enlarged and flaming it sud
denly becomes for uu iumlaut a bril
liantly green color, and immediately a
series of greeu rays suffuses the sky la
many directions, well night to the ae
nith. The same phenomenon appears at
suurise. but to a smaller extent Some
times, just as the last part of tbe SUB'S
disk vanishes, its color changes from
green to blue, and so also after it has
disappeared tbe sky near tbe horizon
ofteu is green, while toward tbe zenith
it Is blue.
This was alluded to in Egyptian
writings Day was the emblem of life
and night that of death, and tbe noc
turnal sun. being identified with Osiris,
thus reudered Osiris king of tbe dead.
Tbe setting sun was greeu therefore
Osiris, as the uocturnal deity of tbe
dead, was painted greeu. Tbe splendid
coffins of the high priests of Atnuion
frequently depict the green sun. and
the funeral deities are all colored
green.
Tbere are innumerable instances to.

relative to death being colored greea
The practice undoubtedly arose from
the green tints of sunrise aud stiuset
The green sun disk is referred to 5.00*
yeurs ago in Egypt. This is tbe earli
