The attorneys for the American Sugar
Helloing Company, which the Ciovern
ment Is trying to dissolve with n Sher
man lawsuit, were startled yesterday
by the introduction of certuln letters
us evidence In the preliminary hearing
before I'nlted States Commissioner
Wilson It. Hrlce
In one of these letters, which were not
embodied ill the Government's evidence j
In the criminal prosecution of the sugar I
trust and ItH olllclals, John I'. Parsons,
attorney for the sugar company, advises
Churles 1 1, Helke, the secretary, that It
Is better to risk the Imposition of n line
rather than to comply with the law
regarding the keeping of stock trans
fer books in the State of New Jersey.
Mr. Parsons's ndvlce was given In
answer to a letter written by Secretary
Helke In which the latter calls atten
tion to the conferences held by the rep
resentatives of the steel Interests and
speaks of the influence wielded by the
latter at Washington. The teller, which
was dated July 7, 1908, reads ns fol
lows: "I received to. day the enclosed letter
from our Mr llannan, In which he asks
whether certain reported conferences of
representatives of the steel Interests should
not be ronsldeieri contrary to law. I sup
Kse that our San Francisco frlertds be
lleve that If the steel men may assemble
to an utig" prices the suaar men may do
likewise, but It seems to me that they hae
forgotten the classic quotation, 'If two do
the same thine then It Is not the same.'
"The steel men. us you know, are par

''l!,t 'October of the Tei
Coal and Iron Company seems certa

ompany seems certainly In
conflict with the Sherman law, but Mr
Morgan had tlrst sent to Washington to
obtain permission, which reminds us of
the Indulgence granted by the Church of
the Mhblle Ages for sins to be committed.
"I shall thank you If you will Rive me
your opinion of the matter that I may
answer Mr. Hannan's letter"
Mr. Parsons's nnswer, sent to Helke
six days Inter, says:
"If the American Sugar Helming Com
pany was In the same situation with ref
erence to the vute of New York as Steel
Is In reference to the vote of Pennsyl
vania no such quitlon ttfflt raised by
Mr llannan need arise,
