N. liW VORK. May IS. Daniel G.
Ueld. the railroad financier and
former member of the finance
fominlttee of the United Slates
Stel corporation, was called as a.
witness today at the hearing of the gov
rniiinl suit lo dissolve the corporation,
lo tell how the American Tin L'late com
pnm was organised.
First of the mnnv leading defendants
I lo ;ippear on the stand. Mr. Reld proved
a poor ultness for tho government, and
time and again his answer to questions
I regarding financial phases of tho tin plate
oinpany's formation was, "I do not re
j nMiihor," or "I d not recollect. " Ills
t poor memory appeared to exasperate
.Midge Dlqklnson. chief counsel for the
government, and prompted him to re
mark: "Vou con bring a horso to water, but
you can't make him drink. Vou can sub
poena a witness, but it seems lhat yon
can't make him remember."
The government contends lhat the
American Tin l'late company, which be
came a part or the United Stales Steel
corporation, was In itself a combination

Mr. Reid told how in iS'JS ho and Judge
William H. Moore had welded the com
pany together out of' about thirly-flvo tin
plate (jonccms, representing some 90 per
cent, of the Industry, but on the question
as to what the properties were worth Mr.
Rcid's memory was frail. He said $10,
000,000 in stock went to the underwriting
syndicate which financed the company,
over and above $36, 000,000 preferred and
common, stock issued in exchango for
stock of the various plants taken over.
He was unable toTocall, however, how
much of this 510.000.000 ho received as a
member of the syndicate or whether cash
was paid for any of the plants Instead
Mind a Blank.
All efforts of Judge Dickinson to re
fresh the witness' memory by reading
extracts of testimony before tho Indus
trial commission In ISO!) proved futile.
Judge Dickinson pressed tho witness with
equal lack of success for information
concerning alleged contracts by which
tho American Tin Plato company Is said
to hava prevented machinery for tho
manufacture of tin plalo from being used
"My mind is a perfect blank on that
subject," declared the witness. Mr. Reid
admitted there was competition among
the constituent plants before he and
Judge Moore brought them together, but
denied there was any intention to mo
nopolize the IndusLry or that there had
! been any efforts to suppress competition.
"Competition was fair and open," he
At preseut, Mr. Hold safd. reading from
statistics which he explained were com
piled In the offlco of tho steel corpora
tion, competition had grown to such an
extent that the annual capacity of tho
corporation's tin plants were only .'.?
per cent of tho country's tolal, as com
pared with an independent capacity of
16.3 per cont.
Reason for Combine,
"Wo figured that by combination wo
could buy supplies cheaper, reduce over
head charges and make the business more
profitable," explained Mr. Reid, but per
sistent questioning by Judge Dickinson
elicited tho answer "that he might have
hnd the regulation of prices in mind."
Prices of tin plalo advanced after the
organization of tho company, but this
was due, he said, to advances in prices
of crude steel and pig tin over which the
tin plate company had no control. He
said the prices of tin plate were higher
in the years previous to 1S9S than after.
Judge Dickinson brought out from the
witness that the National Steel com
pany, a manufacturer of crude steel, was
controlled by "practically tho same In
terests tia the tin plato company."
"All or None."
This company, the Sheet Steel company
and the American Steel Hoop company
were organized as customon; of the Na

cated" at today's hearing.
What appeared lo have been a delib
erate trap set to calch the Jurist in an
embarrassing transaction was repealed by
the testimony, and the defense !udlca.tod
that it would make the most of It.
It was alleged that W. P. Poland of
Scranton, Ta,. who had been one of lhc
defendant parlies to a case before Judgo
Archbald in the supreme court, purpose
ly had JCdward J. Williams, the principal
witness against the judge, solicit Arch

Thly action led lo filing of charges

coal properly, who gave tho option on
the culm bank to Williams and Judge
Archbald, and G. V. Browncll. vice, presi

According to Williams's testimony,
Judge Archbald personally sought Mr;

Belief That He Will
The biggest coup made by confidence
men in Salt Lake since the notorious
McWhlrtvr .swindle In 1900 came lo light
lust night when Churl".- A. Anderson, a
rancher of Mackay. Idaho, rushed Into
the detectives" rooms ai police headquar
ters and cried out that he had been
robbed of 5R770. the savings of a . life
time, by two men who Induced him to
hot on a f:ike horse race.
Wild with grief and anger, hip clothes
disheveled and his face seamed with hag
gard Ilium. Anderson blurted out an al
most incoherent tnlc of bcgullcmcnt and
betrayal at. the hands of men whom ho
had believed wi'l'c his friends. It was
fully an hour before the detectives wero
able to secure a coherent story of the
jobbery. Anderson Kald ho had been
yearchlng for Ihc police station for hours,
unable to get his bcarlngB or follow di
rections, so stunned was he by lhc real
ization of his loss.
Andcraon says ho had Saturday $6000
In cash and cert I ilea tcs or deposit on
Salt Lake and Jdaho bunks. Last "night
he asked the polico to escort him to a
pawn shop that he might pawn his per
sonal effects to obtain money to pay hla
hotel bill and purchase nomcthlng to
Nerve Is Gone.
"f would not oven trust myself In this
town to cai-j-y my personal belongings
to a pawnshop," ho said, "for I'd be nuro
to lose them before I got there."
Anderson sold Ills ranch in Mackay a
week ago receiving a trifle more than $6000
for It. Ho brought $3500 In cash to Salt
Lake, leaving tho rest In the First Na
tional hank of Blackfoot and the W. G.
Jenkins Bank of Mackay. As hr steppod
from tho Oregon Short Line passenger
station last Wednesday lie was accosted
by a" well-dressed, cheerful individual, who
offered him a cigar and suggested that
since they were both strangers iu tho
city they should unite their forces and
see the town together. Andersoji was
on his way to Los Angeles, where he
intended to buy a little home and farm.
Ho InLcnded to stop In Salt 'Lako for
several hours only, but the suggestion of
his new found friends appealed to him j
and he decided to stay over nlsht.
Anderson agj-eed to accompany the
well-dressed one to a South State street
hotel, where they engaged rooms to
gether, tho randier taking lhc precau
tion, howevej-, to deposit most of his
money, lie placed $2000 In the Mc.Cor
nlck bank and $1000 In Walker Brothers'
bank, receiving corresponding certificates
of deposit These he exhibited to his
friend along with a certificate for $1000
on the Blackfoot bank and three cer
tificates calling for ?S00. $C00 and $:'u0
respectively on the W. G. Jenkins bank
"Friend!' Spent Money.
"This fellow showed me a. roll of bills
which he said contained $10,000," said An
derson lost night. . He refused to let me
spend my money and for two days wined
nnd dined me and took me over the en
tire valley In u big automobile.
"Friday we were crossing Main street
near the McCornlck bank when this man,
who said his name was Alexander Hamil
ton, suddenly noticed another man In the
crowd and ran up and embraced him like
a long lost fi-Ieud. He Introduced the new
stranger, to me as William Link, who
ho said was one of the wealthiest horse
men In the Unitod States. Saturday af
ternoon Link proposed that we go to a
pool l'oom and place a few bets. I had
never made a racing bet in my life and
I did not Intend to, but 1 went along
anyhow. Just to see how tho thing wan
Bets on "Sure Thing."
"After making a few bet Link came
back to where I was standing and showed
niu $5000. or at least he said it was that
much. He suld he had won It on a
sure thing. He kept butting, and after a
while he camo back and declared he was
making a big killing and nnked me If I
wanted to get In on it. I consented to
put up several small bets, giving him the
money to place. Every few minutes after
that hu came lo nie mid told mo I had
won. though he didn't give nu any money
"Finally he told me ho had a mire thing, j
that he could not lose and that I had i
better make u big bet. He said I could I
win $50,000 by putting up $3000: Ho told j
mo that if I lost ho would make good
the money I wagered. 1 signed the cer
tlllcKtes and tni-ned them over to Hamil
ton, who said he would accompany Link
to see that everything was all right.
When they came back they told me I
had won $1 0.000, but thul it would be best
to let the bookmakers keep the money
In Iholr safe until I was ready lo leave
town. They had all my money by that
time except a dollar bill."
Anderson said that after the races they
went back to the hotel and had a big
