n Unable to
Walk, Foregoes Visit
to Temple at Karnak
NEW YOKK, Feb. 27. By way of Cairo
and London an incident of J. P. Mor
gan's visit to Luxor has been received
here. It is reported thut tho American
financier and his lmrty drovo out fiom
Luxor to view the temple in the vlllago
of Karnak. As ho was not feeling well
Mr. Morgan wanted to drive around tho
ruins, but tho natlvo official In charge
declined to allow the party to do so.
Mr. Morgan sent his servant In search
of tho Government Inspector, who also
regretted that he could not grant the per
mission. "Not eveny tho khedlve could drlva
around," the Inspector Is Bald to have re
plied. "Only. tho other day. we. had to re.
fuse similar permission to a Husslau
"But I can't walk around, as I am not
well," Mr. Morgan Is said to have ar
gued. "Oh, but you can be carried around,"
tho Inspector suggested. "There nre
plenty of carrying chairs for Invalids and
there Is no objection to that."
"Thero is a very great objection to
that." Interposed Mr. Morgan's secretary.
"If Mr. Morgan were to be carried around
Karnak the news would bo telegraphed
to America. It would be said ho was too
111 to uso his legs and there might be a
financial crisis."
Even that' argument, however, did not
win the desired permission, and the Mor
gan party retired defeated.

WASHINGTON, Feb. 27.-A general tic.
nlal of the existence or possibility of a
"money trust" was presented to tho house
money trust committee today In a long
letter sent by J. 1. Morgan & Co.. -it the
Invitation of the committee.
Upon receipt of the Morgan letter Chair
man Pujo gave out a letter written to
Morgan Co. saying that the 1 tivl tat ln'i
to Morgan .t Co. had been extended Jan
uary 27 and that the committee had been
at wmk on Its report for a month,
"Your memorandum," the reply con
cluded, "manifestly comes too Into to bo
of value."
The Morgan letter laid at the door of
the present banking and. currency law,
the responsibility for any "concentration"
of money and credit that may exist.
In Its coucluMoriH as to tho commit
tee's activities the letter said:
"We venture to submit that In u strong
public opinion there IIcb the greotest
safeguard of the community. The public
are the one who entrust bankers with
I such Influenco and power uh they today
! havo In every civilized in nil and the pub-
Ho Is unlikely to entrust that power to
weak or evil hands. Your counsel nsked
witnesses whether the present power
held by bankers In this country would
not bo a menace If It lay In evil hands.
If congrets wore to fall Into evil hands
the results might be deplorable. Hut to
us It seems ns little llkelv thnt the citi
zens of this country will fill congress
with rascals as It Is that they will entrust
the leadership of tholr business and finan
cial affairs to a set of clever rogues."
line tn Nil 1 11 ni l I.iitt.
The letter says that such concentra
tion of money In New York as has oc
curred Is due to the "antiquated banking
system" and the natural law which "In
every country creates some ono city as
tho great financial . center."
Thnt part of the money trust resolution
declaring that It "Is generally believed"
that groups of financiers!', create, avert
and compose panics 'was' particularly at
tacked by the letter. Morgan & Co. set
forth that any wltnlioldlng of money .or
credit by one man In any market would
bo "promptly relieved by tho automatic
flow of credit from eomo altogether for
eign source."
"We regret," said the letter, "that a
belief ho Incredible, to abhorrent and bo
harmful to tho country should for a mo
ment have found lodgment anywhere.
And wo welcome your Invitation as an
opportunity for us to state that, to the
extent of our observation and experi

New Rates of Union
Pacific Attacked by
the Government
WASHINGTON. Feb. 27. -Tho United
States today beRan an action beforo tho
Intorstatn Commerce commission to pre
vent what Is called an attempt by the
Union Pacific itallwny company to mo
nopolize all the trnfflc bound for the
Pacific northwest from points In the mid
dle West and Great Lakes points.
The action was brought through the
Interior department, which alleges In Its
petition thnt tho Union Pacific on De
cember 1(5. 1911. published a tariff cover
ing through shipments from points on
the Mississippi and Missouri rivers mid
tho Great Lakes to points on tho Oregon
Short Line. The intes provided, the pe
tltlon alleges, were not applicable, unless
shipments wero turned over to tho Union
Pnclflc at Its eastern terminals at Kan
sas City. Mo. ; Council Bluffs. Lenvnn
worth. Knn.; Omaha, Fremont or Nor
folk, Neb.
It Is the contention of tho Interior de
partment that this provision In the tariff
prevents the shipment of trrlght from
Mississippi and Missouri river or Great
Lakes points over tho Northern Pacific
railway, whloh, It Is contended, Is a
shorter route.
The Oregon Short Line i declared to he
a Union Pacific property amj tho.Jstter

former from promulgating throukh rates
over other lines from points mentioned In
the petition to points on the Oregon
