LonSon, Oct. 28, 1 a. m. — The English press
tortetlas with paragraphs about the tobacco war
between the American and British trusts, but a
fir more important movement, which has been
la progress since the spring, escapes observa
tion. This Is the projected amalgamation of the
business interest* of the largest Iron and steel
manufacturers In the- United Kingdom.
Th« formation of the United States Steel Cor
poration was the signal for similar concentra
tions of capital in Europe. The German Ironmas
ters and steel manufacturers, under the leader
ship of the Krupp*. have been endeavoring to or
ganize an industrial combination, and the Bel
gian nine owners and iron and steel manufact
m have been moving in the same direction.
The Interests of both those countries are cen
tred in a few hands, and these, combinations.
while not yet effected, are easy In comparison
with the amalgamation of British iron and steel
jnanufacturers. whose Interests here are of tre
mendous magnitude and inertia. British con
servatism has obstructed the application of new
principle* to the concentration of capital and
the lessening of industrial competition.
AN AMERICAN ORGANIZER.
Protracted negotiations have been required.
but a combination is being arranged by a group
of the largest Iron and steel manufacturers of
the North and South, with the help of an Amer
ican organizer. This combination will control
the manufacture of rails In the United King
dom, and will have a cash capital of £20.000.000.

The American organizer Is John R. Bartlett,
who effected rot long 1 ago a combination In the
oil manufacturing trade and won the confidence
of a large group of English capitalists by his
skUl and practical intelligence in conducting
financial operations. He visited^ during the
spring nearly all the Important iron and steel
»crks of the United Kingdom, and after looking
over the ground and meeting the masters of
th!s enormous Industry he submitted to them
.a plan for effecting a combination of their busi

with a lack of any systematic department for
keeping those in th* trade Informed regarding
the organization and methods of their principal
competitors; second, injurious competition, by
which manufacturers were bidding against one
another for the purchase of supplies and the
•rde of products, thereby Increasing the cost of
production and the expenses of management
•M of marketing; third, aggressive competition
tern the United States and Germany in the

manufacturers were themselves to blame in al
lowing the Americans and Germans to surpass
them in technical skill and In Industrial organi
sation. He suggested as a remedy consolidation
cf the iron and steel industry of the United
Kingdom into a single corporation for mutual
.Protection and defence against overwhelming

substitution of a single corporation for thirty
or forty different managements he described in
*«*il. Amalgamation, he urged, could Involve
°» centralization of management by which the
*orJc would be done most cheaply for the mar
ket, home or foreign, to be supplied. It would
eliminate hurtful competition in the purchase
of supplies and the sale of products, and would
bring about the adoption of the best and most
economical methods of manufacture, thereby
improving the quality and reducing the cost and
increasing the profits without raising the prices
for consumers. It would secure for the benefit
of the whole trade the practical knowledge of
*«* leading men In It. It would reduce expenses.
I*«**n1 *«**n risks and secure the adoption of a uni
form system of accounting. It would Increase
toe morale of the business, and make the se
curities of the consolidated company a more
Profitable Investment than the existing secur
ities ot the separate concerns.
DETAILS OF FINANCE.
These proposals were accompanied by a pre
liminary memorandum of the scheme of .com

taking care, showing that a financial syndicate

of the tangible assets of each vendor would
be ascertained by valuers, on the basis of
"willing seller and willing buyer." The, earning
power of these assets, regulating the value of
the> good will, would be obtained by taking the
average annual profits of the last five years,
and deducting therefrom interest at 4 per cent
on the value of the assets and multiplying the
result by five. The good will in this way would
be valued only by such profits as were in excess
of the amount of interest which the capital in
vested in assets could earn elsewhere.
The total capital of the combined company
would be the value of all the ¦businesses, esti
mated in this way, with th* addition of such
further cash working capital as might be re
quired. It would be divided into debenture,
preference and ordinary shares, and th* owners
of the businesses would be paid in securities or
proportionately in cash, as the stock might be
taken by the public. Th* debenture stock
would represent the value of the properties, the
fixed plant and th*. machinery. The preference
shares would not exceed the value of the assets
exclusive of those covered by the debenture
stock: and the ordinary share?, which would
stand for the pood will of the business* ac
quired, would be calculated on a basis of 10 per
The method of ascertaining the purchase price
was definitely described and illustrated, and 10
per cent was added to the capital on each class
of securities to cover the expense if new ma
chinery, improvements and the costs of amalga
mation. The total capitalization of the com
pany would represent th* aggregate amount of
the purchase consideration paid to the vendors.
With this addition, safeguards were established
for the confidential valuation of the assets of
vendors, and explanations were made respecting
th« method of dealing with the questions of de
preciation and ordinary and abnormal profits.
PLAN UNDER CONSIDERATION.
This Is virtually the scheme of operations un
der consideration by a powerful group of manu
facturers which will probably Join the amal
gamated company. There have been many con
ferences, and the manufacturers, while Intensely
Interested, have- wanted time for reflection, and
have been waiting on the fencf- to find out what
corporations would lead the way. Many of the
most important iron and steel concerns In the
United Kingdom now nave tho whole matter
under consideration. If there be an English
Morgan behind this iron and steel combination,
as I suspect, he still remains in the background.
While the organizer if- an American, the pro
jected enterprise is exclusively English, and Is
not connected in any way with the United States
Steel Corporation. It is not organized In hos
tility to the American combination in the same
industry, but as a necessary measure of mutual
protection and sHf defence for the immense
masses of English capital Invested in iron and
Hteel manufacture. It is a signal proof that
while English manufacturers are not flexible
and imitative like th* Germans they are gradu
ally adapting themselves with characteristic
caution and sluggishness to the new economic
and commercial conditions.
The concentration of capital in the iron and
steel trade will open the way for similar move
ments among English mine owners, shipping
lines and textile trades, and even railways,
which are now operating against one another
and disappointing th* expectations of share
holders, may ultimately be brought together on
a common basis of self interest. I. N. F.
.1//?. BARTLETTS ACTIVITIES.
HE HAS FORMED MANY BIG COMBINA
TIONS BEFORE NOW.
Jolm R. Bartlett. the American promoter who
!s organizing this big British steel deal, has an
office at No. 2 Wall-st.. in this city. He is at
present in Paris. The projected amalgamation of
the British steel and iron industries is the heaviest
operation in which he has ever engaged. His ex
perience as an organizer of the British Oil and
Cake Mills. Limited, broadened his acquaintance
with English manufacturers. That was capitalized
The story of Mr. \Bartletfs life is interesting.
As a boy he. was compelled to leave school at the
age of fourteen years. He found work at carrying
the tapellne for a surveying party. When he was
seventeen years old he went to work in a carriage
factory, acquired the art of designing and con
structing, and. three years after, engaged in the
business of manufacturing carriages for himself in
Haverhill and Boston. Desiring more scope, he
entered on a general mercantile business in Boston
In 1565. being then twenty-six years old. He ex
tended his connections to New-York, to which city
he moved In 1573.
Mr. Bartlett organized between 1556 and UN vari
ous water companies and consolidated water rights,
with the result that the companies so created now
supply Newark. Jersey City, Paterson. Passaic,
Montclalr. the Oranges and other New-Jersey
towns with water. In 1891 he reorganized the
manufacturing and commercial business of the
American Cotton Oil Company, with a capital of
J33.(00,<f00. He was afterward made president of the
company. In 1894 he was elected chairman of the
reorganization committee of the Nicaragua Canal
Construction Company, and accomplished success
fully the reorganization contemplated at the time
of his election, afterward becoming president of
the Nicaragua Canal Company.
Mr. Bartlett is now connected with the following
large concerns: The British Oil and Cake Mills.
Limited; the American Pegamoid Company, the
Nicaragua Canal Company, the Pennsylvania Iron
Works Company, and the Drawbaugh Telephone
and Telegraph Company.
Mr Bartlett has evidently communicated nothing
of' his steel plans to his friends In business in this
country.' "The report that a gigantic steel and iron
combination among the English manufacturers was
contemplated and was. indeed, practically under
way was news indeed to the leading Wall Street
men a.nd Industrial magnates to whom it was car.
ried last night by a reporter for The Tribune. None
of th*m doubted that Mr. Bartlett could engineer
such an enterprise, but none would drsruss the sit
uation that such a combination would create. They
wanted to know more of the details before they
could form an adequate opinion of the effect it
would have on the steel industry in this country
and how it wo.-li r.~.-~A exports.

Th* vast throng was seated according to

obstructed only by those persons who insisted
on standing until they were howled down. Some
of them were persistent, bo there was a good
deal of howling.
When the calcium lights that lit up that
splendid assembly oi boy«, old ;ind young, were
shut off. the lime light threw Its radiance upon
the curtain. FroTi either side there appeared
two heralds in' ancient garb who trumpeted the
fact, in silver tones, that the performance was
about to begin. Between the folds of the cur
tain emerged the announcer of the evening.
Krastus Corning, who declared in well con- j
structed verse the purpose and scope of the en- i
tertainment. Then the band began to breathe
a solemn, old time melody, a whistle blew and
the curtain rose on the house of the Rev. Mr.
Russell at Brandford, where took place two
hundred years ago, the gift of books that is
looked upon as the founding of Yale.
THE SCENE OF YALE'S FOUNDING.
Mr. Russell was selecting the books which he
had promised to give for the founding of Yale.
Nine other ministers presently entered, each
carrying the books which he promised for the
founding of th? college. All placed the books
upon the table in the centre, committed them to ;
Mr. Russell's keeping and joined in prayer for |
the success of the undertaking. When the ap- \
plause died away the band struck a chord, the j
vast audience arose to Its feet and sang:

SECOND ADVANCE WITHIN A MONTH MAT
CAUSE ANOTHER CRISIS AT FALL RIVER.
Fall River. Mass., Oct. 22— Notices have been
posted in the Iron Works cotton mills, increas
ing wages .1 per cent, to take effect on Novem
ber 4. This Is the second Increase of 5 per
cent in these mills, which are owned by M. C. D.
Borden, of New-York, within a month.
This unexpected action, it Is feared, may pre
cipitate another of the frequent crises in the
cotton manufacturing industry of Fall River, as
the operatives of other mills have not yet re
covered from the agitation caused by the an
nouncement of the previous advance at the
Iron Works Mills.
The news quickly spread to-day from one end
of the city to the other, and was eagerly dis
cussed by the army of mill employes. To mill
owners also, the news was of intense Interest.
The Textile Council to-night instructed its
secretary to send a communication to the man
ufacturers asking for a 10 per cent Increase in
wages, to take effect on November 4. The
action of Mr. Borden in advancing wages an
other 5 per cent in his mills here has stirred
the operatives to an unusual pitch, and they
talk strongly of fighting for the advance. The

Carl Sclmn made hb hr^t speech of the campaign last ni^ht at the St. Nich
olas Rink. Seth Low, Dr. Felix Adler, Justice Jerome and others spoke at the
Edward M. Shepard in East New- York and at Richmond Hill. He
tried to place the responsibility for Murphy and Devery on Governor Odell, and
made some remarks that seemed to hit Devery.
Ir was said that Mr. Croker feared tliat "Tim" Snffivan and the gamMing
"combine" were trying to elect Fromme and T.'n^er at the expense of Shepard.
The Rev. Pr-. Theodore L. Cuyler and LmdsaT Parker spoke at fusion mass
meetings in Brooklyn.

AND DEVERY AT THE EXECU
TIVE MANSION DOOR.
"I say that from to-night and every day that
Police Commissioner Murphy remains In his of
fice, from now until December 31. 1901, every
; such day is a certificate of character from Ben
jamin B. Tide!!. Jr.. and upon his own oath of
rf]. he declares himself that th»» Commissioner
' is entitled to and should remain in office."
, In such words Edward M. Shepard, the Tam
many candidate for Mayor, last night tried to
' shift from the Tammany administration the re
sponsibility for keeping Murphy and !•.•¦••.¦ at
the head of the police force in this city, i". . lay
the burden upon th* shoulders or" the Governor
of th* State of New- York. He was making a
speech nt a Democratic meeting in Richmond
, Hill, and was trying to discount the effect of
' S*th Low's declaration that he would remove
i Murphy and Devery from office if he had the
j power as Mayor.
' Later in his speech Mr Sh^pard said some-
I thing that was understood by his hearers to be
an attack upon Devery. although the name of
the Deputy Commissioner of Police was not
mentioned. He said:
The Police Commissioner should re a dignified and
self-respecting magistrate Th« policemen shouM
he aided anil respected and considered as men of
family. I say to you that the practice of trunsfer
hig of policemen without regard to the signal re
quirements of th.- scrrlce should not be done, that
a policeman should be respected as .i man who has
a home, who belongs to his home and should have
.i home in the community to which he is attached:
that he should be treated as a self-respecting citi
zen and as a magistrate entitled to all respect and
t.i make others respect him. and he should be
resprcted by those over him in authority.
Mr. Fhepard went to Richmond Hill from
j East -York, where he mails a spews' to a
larga audience in Schielleln's Hall earlier in
the evening. His reference to the possible' re
: moval of Police Commissioner Murphy at the
; East New- York meeting was bate! and uncer
| tain. He said that Mr. Low was 1 tying much
stress upon the removal of the Commissioner,
and "perhaps the Commissioner ought to be re
moved." but only after a hearing. He indulged
in several promises, saying that they were like
promissory notes, to be redeemed after election.
As if to Indicate his belief In his own election
"I expect that every promissory note issued by
me In this campaign will come back to me early
in January. 19u'_\"
Referring to Mr. Low's statement that when
he was Mayor of Brooklyn the legislature, iht-n
Democratic, did not pass an act relating to
Brooklyn which he opposed. Mr. Shepard said:
Mr. Low took to himself — I don't mean wrongful
ly, perhaps naturally— took to himself some credit,
would it not have been fair and frank to have
given the Democratic legislature in power three
years out of four some credit for the fact that
they at least did not meddle with the affairs of
Brooklyn, because the Mayor of Brooklyn happened
to be ii Republican? Now. on the other hand, dur
ing the last four years the Mayor of Greater New-
York has been a Democrat, and the legislature
and the Governors have been Republican. The Re
publicans themselves, all of the independents, all
of the Independent press, whatever other attacks
they have made upon Mayor Van Wyck. they have
credited him the extremist and cornDletest honor
for the veto messages which he has sent to the
legislature upon the partisan legislation against
the city of New-York enacted by the Republicans
at Albany. They rind fault with the Mayor for
everything- else that he does. These vetoes of
Republican legislation the press almost unanimous
ly and the entire public sentiment and independent
thought of this great city have supported.
But what did the Republican Legislature do?
Almost every one of those hills intended to curb a
government, constrain and restrain the city of
Yew-York because it was Democratic were passed
at Albany over the veto of the Mayor by the Re
publican legislature, and signed by the Republican
Governor. Now I say. fellow citizens, that it Is of
the utmost consequence that the battle in that re
spect carried on by Mayor Van Wyck shall be res
olutely carried on to the end. that there shall be
some one in the Mayor's chair who represents the
dominant idea of home rule held by the Democrat*
of Greater New- York, and who in season and out
of season will resist that tendency ingrained in the
Republican party to meddle with and. m I have
said, to constrain and restrain this city and Its au
thorities for no other reason than that we happen
to be out of political sympathy with the powers at

ence waited until 10*30 lock for Justice Je

last night and reached the rink at 10. _'."> o'clock.
i The rally was magnificent in all respects. Carl;

I' .in. l his remarks attacking Tammany were;
vigorously applauded. He said that of the two.

i of Mr. Shepard than of Mr. Low. but that he'
j would oppose Shepard: none the less vigorously
, on account of what his candidacy represented.
Mr. Low drove straight at Crnkerism, as he has
; from the beginning of the campaign. Dr. Adler
wound up his remarks with a peroration, say
ing: "Tammany stands accused of a crime!"
The applause following his declaration was tre
mendous. Justice Jerome gave his auditors a
merciless scoring for their alleged neglect of
civic duty, and said that he cared more for the
good opinion of the people on the lower East

given by the well to do of the upper West Side.
REMARKS OF MR. PUTNAM.
George Haven Putnam, of the Citizens Union.
under whose direction the meeting was held.
called the assemblage to order.
"More than one grand jury has declared that
the District Attorney's office, of which Henry
W. Unger was the chief assistant, was not to bf»
; trusted." declared Mr. -Putnam. "We told Gar
diner and Unger (when Mr. Putnam was fore
j man of a grand jury* that we preferred to ex
amine witnesses in our own way and in our own»
: room, as we found that they could not be trust
ed because we found that tips were given to»
! those interested in our findings.
"The whole Tammany government Is one of*
I tips to crime. Think of the money that is being
wrung by Tammany from the people of this
city: Dollars from the fashionable gambling;
houses, dollars from the little pinochle games on
the lower East Side, dollars from the cadets In
pursuing their infamous traffic, dollars from
fallen women whose virtue has been sold. Those
are the dollars which are now being used to aid
In the election of Shepaxd. If Mr. Shepard is
elected by these dollars, his elevation will have*
