I y I Wallstreet is talking today about what a good thing the United
I i States Steel Corporation has been for J P Morgan and his friends no
matter what it has been for the 94000 stockholders
j The two steel syndicates the first formed to promote the company
1 and the second to convert the stock into bonds put up 45000000 in
tash On that investment they cleared 68942735 or about 155 per
Cent on the actual cash advanced
SCARED BY THREATS OF SUIT
1 Tho threats to suo J P Morgan Co for tho rcturp ot the profits
W
l t = lIdo out ot the bond conversion plan by dissatisfied stockholders Is be
JIovcd to havo caused the discontinuance ot tho conversion plan
I That tho conversion plan is legal has been decided threo times by the
courts Tho ground ot attack upon the conversion syndicate was that
R7hllo a member of the firm of J P Morgan Co George W Perkins who
I twaS also Chairman of the Finance Committee of the corporation used hIs
Influence to cause the signing of tho contract that enabled his firm to make
I those immense profits That is ho contracted with himself to tho tlotrl
neat of tho interests of tho corporation and to the loss of tho stockholders
cto tako money from tho company in the way of foes and commissions
that by rights and In equity belonged to tho corporation
WAY STOP PROPOSED SUIT
The general opinion on tho street was that with the ending of the
Jilorgan contract with tho corporation ended all danger ot a suit to recover
tho profit made by the syndicate
Tho profits made by tho first syndicate amounted to 56000000 In round
Cumbers The syndicate agreed to furnish tho steel corporation 200000000
but was called upon for only 23000000 so that the profit upon the actual
investment in that case was 200 per cent
The operations of the second syndicate will result in the Steel corpora
j tion increasing its cash surplus by 13200000 when it was expected that
Jho result would bo 50000000 In cash This Is but a little more than tho
profit tha tho Morgan syndicate has made out of the conversion
NICE PROFIT OF 13000000 S
I The syndicate has converted 110388500 upon which an average profit
of eleven points was made which amounted to 12143735 On the 20000
000 bought for cash tho syndicate received 800000 in comml stons and on
tho remaining 150000000 they received a commission of 6000000 This
made a profit of 18012735 On the 20000OX bought for cash tho syndicate
lost about 6000000 so that tho not profits amounted to 12942735
All these facts were freely discussed and there was a difference of opin
1 ion as to the position of tho syndicate In the eyes ot the law

Civil Justice Roisch turned over to the police this afternoon anOlli ° r1
supposed Mafia letter received by tIe father of Father Cirringione f
kidnapped priest
The letter was addressed to Antonio Cirringione of No 300 West
Seventeenth street The envelope was addressed in that manner but the 1
letter read v
I
Father Cirringione No more explanations No more You
lo your life Same as this mailed Judge Roeach Savcfyottr
life Will be against An Cf i
The handwriting was the same as that of the letter addressed to
Justice Roeich It was also in Italian i
For two ours Justice Roesch conferred with Chief Inspector De
tectives McClusky an after tne interview McCluskys scepticism of the
f
priests stcry of kidnappers dianged tc one of ardent belief
He at once ordered additional detectives to go to work on the case
He took charge of the first letter which the Justice received and which a
few hours before he had said he did not want
Evidently the opinion the police held on the case changed with tfid
visit of Justice Roesch to Headquarters The second letter to the Justice
is simply one more of the many developments which have gone to sub
stantiate Father Cirringiones remarkable story of the kidnapping his
imprisonment and release No facts have been presented to refute ii
story Although It was announced that Father CIrrlngoIno would leave St
Vincents Hospital today anti would celebrate mass at his church on
Sunday the doctors Into this afternoon decided not to release him
Ho Is too nervous JLO go away today said Dr Rourke He ma >

The first letter was received by Justice Roesch last night This letter
like those received by tho priest and others In the Bronx bears thllmJ8Y
torlous signature A B C 2
LATEST MAFIA LETTER < i ii
Tho letter was not a threat against tho life of Roesch bufrwaa Intended <
is a warning for Father Cirringione It read as follows Jj1l Pp
Sir Tell to Father Giuseppe that ho shall not sPeak Ir
any more for his life shall answer A BC s t
have saved his life Now Jam against him ABC 4
It will be remembered that when Father Cirringione first told the storr l
