Star-Journal Bureau, Munsey Building. WASHINGTON, May de- veloped today that the Honduran ;reaty, which is: supposed to be the atest wrinkle in international high finance, has struck a mighty Wg snag in the senate committee on for- ;ign relations. Although Secretary of State Knox and J. Pierpont Morgan jre on the anxious seat and each is pressing in his own sphere of in- 'luence for early 'action on the treaty, t is stated by those who have inside nformation as to this very interest- ng situation that the treaty will lot be ratified before July when :he options taken by the Morgan syndicate will expire. Secretary: Knox evidently is deeply ioncerned over the outlook as he ap- peared before the foreign relations :ommittee in private audience and irged that the committee lose no Ime in reporting the treaty favorably o the senate. It seems that unless he senate ratifies the treaty by July L the arrangement by wliich that em- nent financial genius. J. Pierpont Morgan, was to take over the nation- al debt of Honduras ami recoup him- self through the recipts of the Hon- n customs houses will fall :hrough. Even if the committee were to report favorabl at once it is ioiibtful if the treaty could be put hrcuhg ths senate in five weeks and he committee itself is disinclined to ict, notwithstanding" the impassioned jlea of Secretary Knox.

A big baibboon with his coat on fire was shot down just as it reared itself on its hind legs to attack the firemen who were trying to save it. In all, seventji-nine animals were killed. Six tiny babies in the 'baby incuba- tors were wrapped in blankets and carried to safety by one .policeman. The flames were first seen at the. lower end of the park next to the ocean and spread rapidly, fanned by a stiff sea breeze.

GHOTBUDF Says Roosevelt, At Morgan's Suggestion, Was Buncoed In Allowing Merger. WASHINGTON, D. May 27 RYAN HAS BOIL; THAT'S ALL NEW YORK, May that Thomas F. Ryan, the multimillionaire Before the house committee probing the steel trust 'and with John W. Gates testifying, Congressman Stan- ley today succeeded in establishing statements contradicting at every point the famous 'Roosevelt letter which explained the absorption of the Tennessee Coal Iron Co. as a bene- ficent act of the steel corporation to prevent a financial panic. Gates said Roosevelt was merely 'buncoed by the financiers. The house commitee of eight mem- bers today began its probe into the steel trust and Gates was the prin- cipal witness. The committee is ar- ranging to call Judge Gary, of the United States Steel corporation and a large .number of other captains of industry. Considerable fear is felt that Wall street operators will take advantage of the uncertainty caused by the probe to manipulate stock quo- tations. Gates related to the committee the manner in which Roosevelt was in- duced to allow the steel trust to ab- sorb the Tennessee Coal Iron Co. in order to-avert a panic----Hfi_said_ii was J. P. Morgan's suggestion that this be done and that Morgan loaned the money necessary to avert a panic aft- er the absorption had taken place.

Prosecutor To Hurry Action In Matter Of Publication Of Examiners' Report. Because the attorneys for Auditor Deist were not ready to go ahead with the trial of the mandamus suit brought by Prosecutor Hart to compel the pub- lication of the county examiners' re- port, the hearing was postponed by mutual consent until early next week.

THOUGHTS ARE OF THE BLUEi THEY WEAR GRAY Special to The Star-Journal: COLUMBUS, 0., May is a. bit of pathos in the Memorial cele- bration that will take place tomorrow by Walled City Camp No. 1, and the program which has just been is- SDSd, printed with blue ink on gray paper, is rather a grawsome momento of what is certain to be a sad occa- sion. Walled City Camp is made up of the veterans of the civil and Span- ish-American wars, who are prisoners in the Ohio penitentiary. For the first time they will hold a memorial service in the chapel of the prison tomorrow. They would like to hold it on Tues- day, the regular day set apart for memorial observance, bat great state of Ohio needs their work on that day, and if they would honor their dead comrades it must be done on Sunday. Over a hundred veterans are con- fined behind the gray stone walls of the Ohio state prison. Half of- these are men who sacrificed their homes and lives during the trying days from '61 to '64. They emerged from the bat- tlefield in safety, but for some offense. some violation of the laws of the great state, they are made prisoners. These unfortunate men have laKen the dimes and nickels sent them by friends on the outside and had the memorial day program printed. On the first page is the roster of veterans in the prison, and they come from almost every county in the state. Their names will be called and the grizzled old veter- 1 ans, battle and prison scarred, will rise in their seats, but instead of wearing the regular blue uniform of the old soldier, they will have on the gray prison garb. Their thoughts will b3 of the blue, but their uniforms of the gray. A musical program will, be rendered, and, just to enliven the oc- casion and take the thoughts away i from the sad to the outside world, there will be some jig dancing by a Spanish-American war veteran, In the I evening an extra menu has been pre- pared for them, and during the day, these veterans will have the right to j receive visitors from the outside. Judge Releases Man Arrested for Selling Ice Cream Cones From Wagon Congressional Redistricting Bill Must Be Read On Three Separate Days SENATE PROBERS ASK FOR TIME EXTENSION Utilities Bill Now Agreed Upon Is Strong Measure And Expected To DECISION IN TEST -CASE Health Board Ordinance held to Be In Restraint of Order Issued, Deciding an important test case, ofj interest in other counties, Judge j Reed, Saturday morning, held that: Ray McDermott can sell ice cream from his wagon in cone form, or in quantities of a pint or more, and that lite leg illation of the board, of health to the contrary is in restraint of trade, and therefore "void." A writ of habeas corpus was issued, freeing McDermott. An order was al- so made forbidding any interference with the sale of ice cream in wagons by the Grimes Candy company, for which McDermott worked. The result is a decided victory for McDermott. The case was argued Saturday morning before Judge Reed, by City Solicitor Steinemann'and At- torney H. L. Peeke, representing Mc- Dermott, "The board of health cannot say arbitrarily that ice cream shall not be sold in quantities of less than a declared the court in handing down the decision. "Such an attempt- ed rule is in unreasonable restraint of trade. Of course, the court can reasonably provide that the ice cream must be kept in sealed receptacles. The board has no more right to limit the amount of ice cream sold than to prescribe how little or how much milk a dealer may sell." McDermott was placed under ar- rest Tuesday at the instance of the board of health on a charge of selling ice cream from a wagon, contrary to a regulation made by the city board. The hearing was scheduled "to place before Mayor Lehrer Monday morning. WASHINGTON, May 27. In a bomb-like speech before the graduat- ing 'Class of the Washington College of Law, Senator Cummins, of Iowa, last night declared that the shadow )f a Is 'hanging over the United States. Within the next twenty years, he declared the great problem of the distribution of ,the wealth of the nation will be set- tled either by law or a gigantk .revolution. ARCHBISHOP .NA3IED ROME. May Francis Prendergast, auxiliary bishop of the diocese of Philadelphia, was today appointed archbishop of the diocese to succeed'the late Archbishop Ryan. STRANDED IN EXILE COLUMBUS, 0.. May will be impossible for the legislature to complete its work on next Wednesday, and it is certain that the session will be prolonged at least one day and maybe longer. An agreement has virtually been reached as to the boundaries in.the congressional gerrymander but it imisv. be read on three different days except when the rules are suspended and this can only be done with the aid of the republican votes. These, according to leaders, will not be cast with the democrats. The senate probe committee will ask for continuing the session until they can determine their right and it seems practically certain that they will be. supported by the majority of the members of the senate who, in direct opposition to the members of the house, want the probe complete. Party leaders agree today-that it will be impossible to adjourn next Wed-; nesday. The legislative conferees reached a practical agreement on an utilities commission bill. The bill, which will be presented to the senate and house Wednesday, is not as strong as the measure which passed the house, but it is a big improvement over the cor- poration-made bill of the senate. Practically all of the conflicting in- terests among the legislative mem- bership have agreed to support the conference bill. The result f9llowed a long conference between the com- mitteemen and Governor Harmon. Tae threat of natural gas companies to withdraw, used in Akron, Cleveland and Columbus, is met by compelling them to abide by the result ia ap- pealing to the commission a rate fix- ed by council. This right of the util- ity to go to the commission is re- tained with the governor's approval. The home rule feature; chief bone of contention on which Senator Join H. of Cleveland battled, has been taken care of by a provision that when the commission overturns a rate fixed 'by council, it shall report back to council, and a referendum may be held within thirty days. The certificate of public necessity feature is restricted to telephones, S3 that competition is permitted with, all other utilities. All mergers are brought within commission control and the house stock and bond regu- lation is restored. No merger can ba authorized until the commission has valued the properties determined the rates to be charged. Further public protection was add- ed to the Wisconsin-scheme--of de- termining the rate basis, by speci- fically exclusive from property of which a return can be asked, all fran- chise or monopolistic values. Utilities and customers have been made guilty of felonies under the bill by certain acts. An amendment made by Repre- sentative Langdon of Warren makes it a felony for a member of the com- mission willfully to overvalue the property of a utility as a basis, for rates.
