A dispatch to the Chicago Record
Herald, under date of Pittsburg, De
cember 13, says: "W. Ellis Corey is
not to give up his $100,000 job as
president of the United States Steel
corporation without a fight, according
to some of his close friends in -this
city, and if certain millionaires power
ful in the company desire to make his
matrimonial troubles the basis for
ousting him, it is declared, he will
tell some stories of the doings of Pitts
burg millionaires, which will make his
little dinner to Miss Gilman appear
like a Sunday school affair by con
trast. Mr. Corey is here gathering
data which, it is said, will be useful
in his defense. Through his father
he induced J. B. Corey, his uncle, to
withdraw his offer to make public a
batch of letters written by Andrew
Carnegie and others, and two myster
ious strangers from New York, said
to be in his employ, have been busy
gathering information concerning cer

actions of some of the guests. There

his conversation with Ryan, Rynn said
that it was time for him (Ryan) to
make a namo for himself. Mr. Harri

An Associated Press dispatch under
date of Philadelphia, December 14,
follows: "The little two-story brick
structure at 219 Arch street, known
as the 'old flag house,' where Betsey
Ross designed the American flag, has
been purchased for the government.
Final payment on the property was
made today. On October 22, 1898, a
meeting was held in the 'old flag
house' under the direction of John
Quincy Adams and Charles H. Weis
garber and the American flag house
and Betsey Ross memorial association
was formed and later incorporated.
The object was to purchase the his
toric dwelling and save it to the na
tion. This was accomplished through
the issuance of membership certifi
cates at the uniform price of 10
cents and the co-operation of the peo
ple of the entire country. There are
a million stockholders of the proper
ty living in every state in the union."

In the New York court of appeals
where the attorneys for W. R. Hearst
were making an effort to have a re
canvass of the ballots, Alton B. Par
ker, formerly chief justice and a can
didate for the presidency in 1904, ap
peared as attorney for Mayor McClel
lan. Mr. Hearst's attorneys cited-an
opinion delivered by Mr. Parker while
he was on the bench, In which he
held that the court could compel a
recanvass of the ballots the very
point now urged by Mr. Hearst's at
torneys. The attorneys for Mr.
Hearst bitterly criticised Mr. Parker
for appearing in court in an effort to
destroy his own judicial opinion.
Judge Parker said that he had made
a mistake when he delivered that opin
ion, and that "after mature delibera
tion" he had concluded that the court
has no power to "assume jurisdiction
to compel a recanvass of the ballot."
E. H. Harriman testified before
the insurance committee at New York
by way of reply to Thomas F. Ryan.
Mr. Harriman said that when Ryan
bought the Hyde stock he asked Har
riman to co-operate with him in sav
ing the property; that Harriman said
he would do it if satisfied that Ryan
was acting from unselfish motives. He
said that Ryan did not satisfy him
as to the purity of his motives, and
that he notified Ryan that he would
use his influence against him. Harri
man said he offered to take one-half
of the Hyde stock and to name two
trustees of the society. Ryan re
fused to agree to this, and Harriman
concluded that Ryan was not acting

MR. BRYAN IN JAPAN
At Kagoshima, Japan, October 31,
Governor K. Chikami delivered to
Mr. Bryan the following address of
welcome: "Sir: Now that, on this oc
casion more than on any other In
my life, I need the full command of
all my faculties, I feel very sorry
indeed to confess that I am well-nigh
at a loss when I think of my poor qual
ifications for tendering an address of
congratulations and welcome to one
of the greatest orators of the age.
But I must screw my courage up to
the sticking point and do my little
best in order to fulfill, however, im
perfectly, the honorable and other
wise certainly the most pleasant duty
assigned to me this evening.
"Sir, I suppose you know well
enough that we, the Japanese peo
ple have just been celebrating, all
ove'r the land, the triumphal return
of the Nelson of the east, whose bril
liant victory on the Sea of Japan
has made our empire the mistresB of
the far eastern waters, and at the
same time the renewal of the Anglo
Japanese alliance, which, I earnestly
hope may prove to be the impregna-
