the benumbed reacuers, and the latter
huddled in the bottom of the boat. Res?

CARNEGIE WORRIES STANLEY
Hasn't Replied to Invitation To
Be Steel Witness.
'From Th? Tribune Bureau.]
Washington, Jsn. 6. -Deep ?loom p*r
vades the stmosphere of the Stanley steel
Investigating committee room to-night. The
chairman throughout the day has appeared
dejected and careworn; the bantering spirit
in which he has been wont to meet \ Is
itora and witnesses has worn off; no smile
adorns his ruddy countenance, and the voice
which more than once has thrilled on the
Kentucky hustlnsrs has lost It? melody.
Andrew Carnegie is silent, and this has
made the chairman of the steel Investi?
gating committee sad and silent, too. <">ther
members "f the committee are just wonder?
ing. Mr. ?'arnegle weeks ago ?aid he was
willing to appear hefor? the steel committee
-.. - his presence was dc.??lrcd. Chalr
man Stanley sent him a telegram yesterday
morninsr. a?1vlslng the ironmaster that the
? opportune moment had arrived. Nearly'
forty-etght hours have elapsed, but still no
reply has come.
it Is enough to depresa even the buoyant
chairman of the steel committee. A s< "re
of time? to-day was the chief steel Investi*
gator asked. "Has ?'arnesrle replied?" Kach
time there came an answer, short and to the
point, "No." It was not Mr. Stanley's func?
tion to reason why ; n<>r did he attempt to
d" so.
Finally, he solemnly told the newspaper
correspondent? that he would call them un
the moment the ?phi master replied to hia
rourteoua telegram "f Invitation. The
hours wore on and no answer came from
Mr Carnegie, nor was there any telephone
communication from Chairman Stanley
Despite Mr. Carnegie's assurances of his
willingness to tell everything he know?!
about the steel combination, such a harsh
thins a- a subpoena may have to be issued
ta brine him here next Wednesday, the
day set for the reconvening of the rom- !
mlttee. The committee ha.? been awa) |
from the iimellgiif long enough; there must |
be a show next week or the public may i
forget there is an Investigation In prog- I
ress; and if Mr. Carnegie would dispel j
some of the gloom which, hangs over the ?
steel committee headquarters he will an- i
