The Government counsel approached
Tennessee Coal and Iron by reading
m the, minutes of a meeting of the
i'arrigle company managers which said
ne r.ihroads were reported as about to
''melon bes.semer steel rails for open
t.'jir- , rails. One extract quoted Mr.
Jj'rkny ns saying:
'Wn lost a flno order for rails last
ik when the Uarrlman lines cave It

Th. order wa.. understood to be for
i'r 0111) tons,
T rn It ilnvcloppil that the Tennessee
''''!' and Iron Company had a capacity
1 r "pen hearth rails of from 100,000 to
"ii 000 tons, far exceeding anything the
s'"l Corporation had. In fact It ap-I'ai-ed
that until the completion of the

'' t' Tennessee coinpunv. t lie Steel
1 'Tporatlnn was equipped mainly for
' ' trifinufacturer of hessemer steel.
Mr Corey said the Carnegie company
mn talked about Tennessee Coal and
Jinn sometimes. Mr. Dickinson then
read extract from .the Carnegie com-1
puny minutes In in03 to show that the
Tennessee Coal and Iron Company was
selling steel rails at ahollt i above the
agreed irlce, having certain freight ad
vantages which permitted them to do
Actiin- or r. c. .i i.
"Was the Tennessee company ;it
that time ii competitor of the 1'nlled
States Steel'.'" was one question.
"I should say vos," niiMvcrcd Mr.
Corey with u smile.
The "I'iltsliui g hase" rule which was
enfoiced liy the Steel Corporation was
".plained while the Tennessee com
pany was under discussion.
All this time Mr. Severance was mak
ing strenuous objections when It tip
peared that the Government was get
ting pretty close to Its contention that
the Tennessee Coal and Iron Company
had been nbsoibod to take a competitor
out of the market.
The "Pittsburg hase," the witness ex
pl'lned, was t'lt prevailing price nt
I'lttshiii'i.. plus freight. Mr. Dickin
son wanted to know how that worked
out. say. In the case of n St, l.ouls pur

"Would the purchaser have to pay
the I'lltsliurg price plus the freight
from that point Instead of the Height j
irom v oiingstovv n, which Is nearer si.
l.ouls?" he asked.
"To the best of my recollection lie
would," nnrwered Mr. Corev.
Armor Plate Pool Also.
"Was there an International armor
plate pool at nny time since the for
mation of the Cnlted States Steel Cor
poration?" suddenly asked .ludge Dick
inson, "I could not say whether there has
been a pool since the formation," re
plied Mr. Corey.

other copy of n minute book of the i

Mr. Corey said he did not know the',,,
details of the pool. That matter was 1
in charge of the foreign r presentativ e
at London, Mlllaid Hiiusleker. and W

pany. he thought, would know about it I
The City dinners came up nt the

"Were not you and the officials of the

"I want to ansvvtr tnat for myself

pany vvas a very large pig Iron pro
ducer. The "lllllet oelntlon."
Mr. Corey told what he knew about
the "Millet" Asoclatlou" of UOIi. He
thought the Carnegie company, per
haps th" lllnol Steel, Jones and Laugh
lin. the Wheeling and Cnmbila Com
pany, the Pennsylvania Steel, the Lack
awanna Steel and the Itepubllc Iron and
Steel Company were members. He re.
memhered that thete wa trouble In the
trade about 1!04 in which there had
been a general readjustment of prices
downward. It seemed that the Itepub
llc Iron and Stel Company undeibld the
Carnegie company for a large contract
of the Pittsburg Steel Company, where
upon the American Steel nnd Wire
Company made a big slash of Its prod
ucts, which affected the Pittsburg Steel
In It turn as n leading competitor.
When Mr. Dickinson took up the Hill
ore leases It appeared that Corey had
made a hard tight against them, but
they had gone through.
"What vvas the purpoe of those
leases to take n large body of ore out
of the market nnd away from com
petitors?'' asked Judge Dickinson,
"I have no recollection," was the
answer. "Personally, I was always op
posed to those leases." said Mr. Corey.
"Why?" asked the Government coun
sel, "Hecallse we did not need It and the
price was about twice too high."
The Cnrnrnle-Frlrk Wnr,
An extract from a meeting of the fi
nance commlUce was read In which .Mr.
Ftlck offered a resolution to Insure the
Hill toads a freight tonnage of nt least
SOO.00O tons annually at a fixed price,
Mr. Corey could not tell much nhout
that because when the leases were
signed later there was also a stipulation
for the royalty to be paid for the ore
and the freight to be given to thn Hill
Judge Dickinson touched lightly on
.. .. it .t. ..,l
Mr. Corey's knowledge of the ( a-iegle-
h'r ck war and the determination 1 All-
drew Carnegie back In 1 SOU lo begin a
great ludiislrlal war In the steel trade.
Mr. Corey remembered about tho plan
to start pipe works at ConneHiil, Ohio,
hut he vvas not asked about the railroad
which was lo parallel the Pennsylvania
to tidewater or about other branches
of business tho Iron master was to en
ter until the combination was formed.
There waa Home llttlo talk or the suit
brought by Mr, Frtck to dissolve Unji
Carnegie company and to get an ac
counting of his Interests, The answer
to he llled In that suit had heen dis
cussed hy the Carnegie hoard of mana
gers, Mr. Corey said. In which they
plaivd the alue of the plant at $7i,
fHMi.mm, although It had heen held out
to he worth at le.ist Jii.'.n iiim.nOfl, Later
it went into the combination at some
thing like $ Ioii.ihio.ooo.
Mr. Corey said $7ii.i00,oofl was n most
conservative estimate of the value.
"Vmi do not mean to say that It was
untruthful?" asked Judge Dickinson.
Mr. Corey hesitated.
"No, I would not say that," he finally
said, "hut It was most conservative."
"It was as low as would he consistent
with the truth?" Inquired Mr. Dickin
son. "If you want to put It that way,"
answered Mr. Corey.
That ended Mr. Corey's direct ex
amination. He will go on under cross
examination this morning.

street police stations sent special de
tails of uniformed and plain clothes men
to guard the hotels mil look out for
brick throwers, and the hotels them
selves for the most part had private
detectives on glial d.
Toward midnight there were proces
sions of strikers up nnd down Hroad
way and In I'ortv-second street, but
they did nothing but boo at the Knlcker-
booker, the Cadillac and other hotels
along the line of march. The police
dispersed these .demonstrators without

After the rioters had yelled nnd
thrown missiles for some time they
were shunted eastward Into l'orty

this time the police heard of another
demonstration at the Hotel Belmont.
After leavlnu the Knickerbocker the
huge crowd of waiters flowed through

I inn leaving the city to-night, so you
can see for yourself I don't look for Hny
real trouble. My reports Indicate that all
of our hotels now have at le.ist the
nucleus of a loyal Haff and that most of
the hotels wouldn't be git-atly affected by
action th union or the 1. W W might
take. Voting for a strike and then getting

The extent to which a wife who Is
liberally supplied with money by her
husband may Involve him in debt Is
Indicated In an opinion handed down
yesterday by Municipal Court Justice
Wauhope I.ynn of the Fifth district.
Tho court decided that Dr. Henry
Arthur Cassebeer, Jr., of the Alwyn
Court, Fifty-eighth street and Seventh
avenue. Is not liable for n bill of $s:t
for three hats bought by his wife while
he vvas giving her $200 a month with
which to cloihe herself.
Dr. Cassebrer Is a graduate of Har
vard, '96, of the College of Physicians
nnd Surgeons nnd of thn Hellevun Hos
pital Medical College. He was married
In London In 1S09 to Mrs. Kleanor
The suit before Justice Lynn was
brought by Francklyn W. llnvves, a
milliner, to mako her pay for three
hats. Her defence was that the bill
should hnvn been sent to her husband
because the lints were necessaries, nr,
Cassebeer repudiated tho liability, and
testified that since his marriage he has
been spending from $15,000 to tlin.ono
a year for living expenses. He said he
had heen giving bis wifo 300 n month
for private expenditures, but hnd cut
down the nllovvanco to t200 In the hope
that she would become more economical,
He testified that when he told her the
nllovvanco had been reduced she went
out nnd bought tho three hats for
which who was sued,
In his opinion Justice Lynn snldl
1 cannot permit this wife to eseape her
liability In this action, nor will I give nssent
to any rule which has crown up that n wile
may run around shopping ivheie her fancy
