Declares In Argument.
WASHINGTON, April 1. Express
companies of the country have been
hit hard by the operation of the new
parcel post system, according to state
ments submitted today to the Inter
state Commerce Commission by coun
sel for the companies In their final ar-
uments against the reduction on ex
press rates proposed by the Commis
sion. It was declared that the com
panies have suffered a loss approxi
mating ii per cent In small package,
business, or about S per cent of the
gross revenues of the companies.
Walker U. Hlnes asserted that for
the five companies he represented the
Adams, American. United States, South-
rn and Wells-Fargo application of
the proposed rates to present business
would reduce revenues about 1-8. 000,-
000 a year, or 6.S5 cents on every dollar's
worth of business done. Such a reduc
tion lu revenues, he said, would be ab
solutely destructive. He maintained,
also, that the formula-made rates
would seriously disturb business con
ditions In large centers, such as Kew
ork and Chicago, by forcing a read
justment of competitive business con
B. K. Fairchlld. of the New Tork
Chamber of Commerce, for the express
nippers, attacked Mr. Hlnes argu
ment as "purely theoretical and hy

posed rates would yield an ample reve-
ue to the express companies, lie
maintained also that the present al-
owances made by the express com
panies to the railroads for transiiorta
tlonTervice were excessive.

BERLIN, April 1. Dr. Wilhelm Bode.

of Prussia, in an article published here
todav. says that the late J. P. Morgan
expected his death and urged him in
1S12 to nav a visit to .ew York in
for the ODenlcsr of the new wing of the
Metropolitan Museum, saying tnat ne
himself would not live to be present.
"Mr. Morgan," says Dr. Bode, "was
a great collector of a highly original
tvne. but be was not an expert. He
realized this, although he was unwlll
ing to admit it- In spite of this fact he
was rarely deceived, as he chose his
agents and advisers well.
"He habitually deterred payment ior
several months In case fraud should

had such wholesale fear of losing a
good customer that they did not dare
to pass off fraudulent or inferior ar
ticles on him. although this might have
'Mr Morgan was responsible for

Dr. Bode ranks the collection of Mr.

museums of Europe.
5ERA1CES FOR ART LAUDED

NEW YORK. April 1. The services
of the late J. P. Morgan to the Metro
politan Museum of Art are lauded and
his notable benefactions to the museum
acknowledged in resolutions of jegret
of his death, adopted today by the
trustees. He Is referred to as one of
the museum's "most active and muni
ficent benefactors." For many years,
the resolutions say. hardly a meeting
of the trustees took place at which
some rich and valued gift from him
,to the museum was not announced.
"His accession to the presidency (In
1904) marked the beginning of a new
era In the Museum's growth and pros
perity." the resolutions continue. "Gifss
and legacies have been strengthened
by his presence and his constant lib
erality, while his efforts in behalf of
the Museum have placed it In a posi
tion where Its future among the great
art Institutions of the world Is as
sured." In line with a recently announced
intention, the corporate stocks budget
committee of the city board of estimate
unanimously decided today to set aside
$750,000 for the proposed south double
wing of the museum intended to have
the famous Morgan collections of art
objects, valued at $60,000,000. Quanti
ties of art treasure which Morgan
caused to be sent here from Europe
not long ago have been stored away
in the basement of the building await
