EXTRA SESSION ASKED
ROOSEVELT BEING URGED TO
DEAL WITH FINANCIAL QUESTION
Washington. Nov. 4.—It was learn
ed here todav from undoub ed
sources that Presldeut Roosevelt It
now being urged to call an extra
session on congress to deal with the
financial situation. The request
cocne* from and represents the judg-
ment of the conservative leaders in
the financial world who have report
ed the present situation as one com-
pelling action of a cha acter that will
eradicate all .ground for suspicion of
American Industrial Methods. The
president has Imen a-f ured from
moat reliable sources that there will
be no opposition on the part of the
great Industrie* of the* country to
the enactment of the necesasry laws
to carry out his ideas of federal con-
trol to the extent which he has ex-
pounded them (u his recent public
utterances. These assurances are
made at this time to avert what has
been represented a* the most dan-
gerous situation which hns confront-
ed the country during an extended
historic period—that Is, the seeming
growing lack of confidence based on
known Irregularities In business
methods In some quarters and speedy
means of separating the good from
the unsound. To this end It Is sug-
gested that the president set con-
gress to the task, first, of making
such amendments to the financial
laws as will result In the maximum
ot flexibility with the minimum of
basic change In the system. Next
and perhaps most In importance that
the president embody his sugges-
tions on corporation control Into
distinct recommendations for enact-
ment Into law. In this connection at-
tention has been directed to what he
said at Provincetown. Mass., August
Roosevelt on Incorporation.
“I believe in a national Incorpora-
tion law for corporations engaged in
interstate business. I believe, furth-
ermore. that the need for notion Is
most pressing as regards those cor-
porations, which because they are
common carriers, exercise a quasl-
puhllc function: and which can he
completely controlled iu all respects
by the federal government., by the
exercise of the power conferred un-
der the Interstate commerce clause,
nnd. If necessary, jyider the post
road clause of the constitution..
The national government should
exercise over them a similar super-
vision and control to that which It
exercises over natlorol hanks. We
can do this onlv by proceeding, fur
ther along the lines marked out by
the recent national legislation .
Almost every hlg business concern
Is engaged In Interstate commerce
and such concerns must not be al
lowed, by a dextrous shifting of po
sitlon, as has been so often the ease
in the past, to escape thereby all re-
sponsibility either to state or na-
That the president has given re-
quest for an extra . session careful
consideration Is Indicated by those
who have been asked to lend their
advice in the matter. That the In-
formation as to existing conditions
Is not alarming has been 'the con
tinning assurance which has come
from the government's casual ohser
vatlons. With this in view the nresl-
dent has been told that the call for
an extra sesslojj of congress might
have the reverse effect from that de
sired by those who are urging such
action; that it would tend to empha
size In the public mind an apprehen
slon of unfavorable conditions which
do not exist. Failing in obtaining
an extra session, those who have
made the appeal for it have pre-
sented an alternative, or an addition-
al request, that the president make
a public statement of the assurance
he feels In the sound condition of
public credit. This. too. has met a
measure of opposition from the ad
ministration's advisers. Roth sug-
gestions are still matters of consid-
eration, although no Information
whatever is obtainable regarding
either directly from the 'White House
HE FINDS MORPHINE.
Dr. W. M. Cross Reports in the Per-
Kansas City. Mo.. Nov. 4. — The
physicians appointed by the federal
court in Topeka as an expert com
mission to ascertain whether L. H
Perkins, who fell from the roof of
his home in Lawrence. Kan., almost
two months ago. had taken poison,
have had their final joint consulta-
tion and the report to the federal
court will be made today.
Dr. Walter M. Cross, city chemist
of Kansas City, nnd one of the ex-
perts of the commission, said last
"When my examination was com-
pleted I found morphine in the stom-
ach and In the urine. The amount 1
found was enough to kill a man. The
fact that It was in the urine Is abso-
lute proof that the morphine was
taken into the system before death.
How long before It ts impossible to
state. I do not want to be quoted
as saying that Mr. Perkins died from
an overdose of morphine. That Is
for the court to determine after It
has read our report, hut the morphine
Al aged Jersey farmer, visiting a
circus for the first time, stood before
the dromedary's cage, eyes popping
nnd mouth agape at the strange beast
within. The circus proper began and
the crowds left for the main show,
but still the old man stood before the
cage in stunued silence, appraising
everv detail of the misshapen legs,
the vtoven hoofs, the pendulous up]»er
lip and the curiously mounded back
of the sleepy-eyed beast. Fifteen
minutes passed Then the farmer
turned away and spat disgustedly.
