VARES' STERN "CALL"
OF M'NICHOL'S HAND
LOOKED FOR TODAY
Politicians Expect an Abrupt
Demand for "Showdown"
in Republican City Com
Speculation ns to what wn happening
behind closed doors at the meeting of
the Itcptibllcan City Committee, where
State Senators Edwin H. Vare and James
r. McNlchol came together, occupied the
ettcntlon of political circles today.
Rumors of an Impending clash flew
tack and forth, but ihoso In a position
to know were silent and mado no pre
diction!!. The committee met nt noon today. Fol
lowing so closely the report that the
Vares last Saturday demanded action by
I'nlted States Senator Penrose It tho
Js'orth American charge that Vare
helped debauch former Mayor Royburn
were repented, politicians were appre
hensive of a demand by Vare at the com
mittee meeting for n "show-down," the
North American having repented Its
Organization men were at work thla
morning trying to discount the generally
accepted belief that the Varo followers
would "knife" Penrose on election day,
with or without orders The statement
of Edwin II Vare that he was a .Re
publican and would "stick" Was being
liioted In an attempt to show that the
Vares would stand in line.
, VARES SUSPECT McNICHOL
This statement, however, was prior to
the sensational action of Congressman
"William S. Vare In rising before the
House of Representatives to a question
of personal privilege and demanding ac
tion by Penrose that would "satisfy the
people" of tho falsity of the North Ameri
can's charges. Close political observers
do not believe Congressman Vare made
this statement without previous agree
ment with his brother
Although Tenrose 13 the first object of
tho attack said to bo brewing In the
Vare ward. MeXIchol I not any more
popular with the followers of the down
town leaders. His attitude on the North
American's charges has served to In
crease the fooling downtown against him.
The Vares have been in fighting mood
since the charges were published JIc
Nlchol has affected to laugh at tho ac
cusations. The sltuntlon Is believed by
many to be ripe for on open breach.
PENROSE NOT POPULAR.
The Vares and their followers have
much to revenge themselves for, accord
ing to leaders In tho South Philadelphia
wards. Their followers have been kept In
line thus far only by tho assertion that
It was not Penrose they were asked to
support, but tho Republican candidate for
tho United States Senate. But Penrose
buttons have never been popular In the
Vare wards and enthusiasm for party has
not gone to the top of tho ticket. Vare
men have balked at Penrose for months
"It's no wonder." said one man who
has been a leader in South Philadelphia
polities for years ' The Vares have had
to put up with even kind of humiliation
from Penrose and McXlchol. The work
ers know all this, and they are waiting
for a chance to get back at Penrose "
Unless sharp orders for the support of
Penrose are Issued within the next few
days, Varo leaders believe, the great mass
of South Philadelphia followers will leave
a. blank opposite Penrose's name on tho
ballots November 3. It will be unnec
essary to pass the word along for the
mine, me memory or ion, when William

VARES ALWAYS "STUCK "
Penrose's easy disregard of the Vares
has oeen notorious for jenr.s. The Varo
following, closer and more personal than
that of any other political machine in
the country, has swallowed the Penrose
insults and "stuck" when the Vares or
dered It to. But this year tho Vares
themso'ves are developing a revengeful
disposition and their followers are Jook
ing on gleefully, in anticipation of re
prisal at the polls
A far back as 1901, when Governor
Stuart was the Republican candidate,
Penrose and Mc.Vichol showed perfect
faith In their ahilitj to keep the Vares
In line, despite rebuffs and affronts Since
then the Vares have often had to "stick"
under the brusque disregard accorded
them by Penrose ami McN'irhol. Usually
peace was patched up between the Vares
and the Mc.Vichol men In time to present
a solid front for the Penrose candidates
at the following election.

over tho legality of tho will of John G.

of the disinherited relatives was resumed
before Judge Lamorclle In the Orphans'
Jules, -who for about ten years was Jan
itor In tho curio shop of Mr. and Mrs.
Ferdinand Keller, where Mr. Watmough
was In tho habit of calling nearly every

the conduct of the millionaire during

him and tho Kellers. Jules had also pro
duced what he termed "the yellow paper"
and which purported to be a memorandn
of conversations and actions between Mr.
"Watmough and Mrs. Keller as far back
as 13 years ago.
Tho Kellers, under the terms of the
will in dispute, wero to have the residue

they would proe Maujean had commit

CAUvS YELLOW PAPER DCPLORIOUS
Lawyer Huckman took the ttand him

Kellers and Maujean had Informed him
Jules, conscience stricken, had admitted
In letters to the Killers, "the yellow
paper" record, which ho testified was
made some 12 or 15 years ago, had In
fact been prepared only a few days or
a short time prior to the calling of the
case for hearing before the .Register.
The lawyer nlso testified Jules wanted
5iroo.x so that he could "go away" after
he had "righted the wrong done tho
Kellers." After these revelations and the
preparation of the "confession," Jules
disappeared nnd the witness did not know
Ills present whereabouts.
In answer to Mason and Edmonds,
counsel for the contestants, lawyer Ruck

Reed Makes Dramatic
Speech in Suit Against
"Trust," Quoting Mag
nate's Remark to Morgan.
An eloquent and dramatic defense of
Andrew Carnegie against tho charge of
the Government that Mr. Cnrnegle was
a conspirator with J. Plerpont Morgan
and the United States Steel Corporation
In selling to It his Interests In tho corpora
tion, to restrain tho steel trade of the.
United States, wnamade today by David
A. Rood, attorney for tho corporation,
when tho Government suit for tho dis
solution of tho Steel Trust wns resumed
before tho United States Circuit Court
of Appeals, in the Federal Building.
In opening his defenso of Mr. Carneglo,
Mr. Reed read the statement made by
Mr. Carnegie to J. Plerpont Morgun on
the day he sailed for Europe, after ho
hnd sold his Interests to the United States
Steel Corporation. Tho statement was:
"Now, Plerpont, I am the happiest man
In the world. I have unloaded this burden
upon your back and I am oft to Europe
"This," said Mr. Reed, "ls the evidence
of tho charge of conspiracy brought
against Mr. Carnegie by tho Government
This meeting of Mr. Carneglo with Mr.
Morgan, Is the so-called consplratory
moctlng on which the Government bases
Its charge against Mr. Carneglo. Mr.
Carnegie's purposo In selling his Interests
to tho United States Steol Corporation
wns not to make money, but to rid him
self of the load and dovoto his entire
time to philanthropic work. Mr. Car
negie saw his oppoitunlty to servo man
kind In a way In which no man could
serve nerore. And he roso to this op
portunity most magnificently. To apply
to Mr. Carneglo the appellation applied
to criminals Is unworthy of the Govern
ment." COLTON SPEAKS FOR GOVERNMENT.
Hnrry E. Colton, who Is associated with
former Secretary of "War Dickinson in
representing the Government In Its dis
solution suit against tho United States
Steel Corporation, held the ear of tho
court for more than an hour beforo
David A. Reed took the floor for de
fendants. Mr. Colton devoted his entire time to
tho subject of prices and tho alleged
maintenance of uniform prices of steol
products for long periods after the for
mation of the Steel Corporation. Mr. Col
ton charged that tho uniform prices main
tained by tho Steel Corporation and In
dependents was one of the results of tho
Gary dinners which wero attended by a
majority of tho iron and Bteel magnates
of this country.
Mr. Colton endenvored to prove tho wit
nesses tho Government has called and
the documents it has presented showed
clearly tho United States Steel Corpora- I
non assumeu tne lead in prevailing upon
Independents to co-operate In keeping up
prices. In reply to the argument of tho
defense that prices of steel have not
remained uniform during the past few
years, Mr. Colton said the Steel Cor
poration had begun to reduce prices soon
after the Government had filed Its suit,
but that this reduction lasted but a brief
time, prices again rising to a uniform
Mr. Colton also endeavored to prove
that the prices quoted by the Iron Ago
tended to show that prices were main
tained uniform, by citing tho prices in
the Carnegie prlco book, which, he said,
were Identical with those quoted by the
Mr. Colton said the defense did "n
most outrageous thing when they quoted
prices that obtained in October. 1911. the
very time the Government Hied Its peti
tion." "Tho Government does not contend,"
said Mr. Colton, "that since the Stanley
Investigation tho directors of the Stet-1
Corporation hav dared to effect combl

Mr Colton ridiculed the contentions
of the defense as to the volume of

northern part of Cuba between 2,000,000
and 3,000,000 of ore, with only about 33
