the labor cost o the Crucible Company
was twice as much or more than it was
to foreign manufacturers. Ramsay said

mittee a Few Truths Abouj
Affairs of the Day.
James J. HUl's rugged personality
came to the front within the last ten
minutes of testimony before ho finally
left the witness stand yesterday. Here
are some of the things he said:
"I'll be a first-class angel, with red
and white feathers In my wings, 'before
I'll ever go Into the steel business "
"When the Federal government has to
regulate commerce, there'll be no Fed
"The age of competition won'fpass un
til you change human nature. It. will
exist as long as the law of the survival
of the fittest Is true."
"We are not wearing any crepe be
cause the United States Steel Corporation
is giving Up our leases."
"Wall street's opinion has never Influ
enced, me particularly. I'm satisfied to
hold my ore Interests."
Attack Government's Jteport.
Unlike .Carnegie, 'Gary, or Perkins,
"Jim" Hill ruggedly attacked the opin
ions and conclusions ot the government's
corporation commission, as well as Wall
He declared that Herbert Knox Smith's
conclusions as to the steel business are
so divergent from what his knowledge
has taught him that he didn't Dottier
about finishing reading the report. Rep
resentative Gardner, of Massachusetts,
asked him If he would not read it care
fully and. talk to the committee about It,
pointing out what he believed to be In
correct deductions. Hill refused, declar
ing that he "didn't have time, and he
wasn't any expert anyway."
Representative Gardner asked him
whether it wasn't true that the news
that the Steel Corporation was going
to break the lease on the Hill oro lanijs
had not sent the price oft Northern Ore
certificates. Ho declared that the opin
ion formed of an industry by Wall street
or tne puouc. was not regarded by him
as of any great importance.
Steel Trust "Frluntened."
Several limes during his six hours on
the witness stand yesterday the grizzled
veteran of mine and railroad declared
that he didn't know what made the
Steel company seek to break the ore
contracts for the Mlssabe ore lands.
They must have been frightened by
sometning, ne saia.
Most of the afternoon session had been
spent In discussing the details ot the
ore deposits In the Mlssabe reclon. At
S 30 the committee excused Mr. Iflii, but
jtepresentauv e ueaii, or xexas.-'asKea
tne veteran to remain a moment.
'Carnegie and Gary and many others
have expressed the opinion that the age
ot competition nas passed," said the
Representative. "They declare the time
has come when some government agency
must control tne big interests. What do
jou think of that?"
"This win be only my personal opinion.
But I think that If you can change
human nature, the age ot competition
will pass. Tou will have to eliminate
the selfish motive which moves every
human being I think that there will be
competition In the world as long as sur
vival of the fittest lasts. And when the
Federal government takes a hand, then
there will be no more Federal govern
ment. I don't want to live here then."
Chairman Stanley then took a hand.
' If." he said, "all the big concerns
should organize for their own selfish mo
tives and Interests and operate 'under a
new commercial golden rule of broth

gorging society, and use this power to

WORK ON TRANSFER BILL.

It Is probable that the Galllnger uni
versal transfer bill, recently passed by
the Senate, will be favorably reported
by the House District Committee next
week. The bill Is under consideration by
the subcommittee on the judiciary, and
it Is expected that It will be reported to
the full committee Friday. There is
some doubt expressed, however, as to
the report likely to be made, pending dis
position of the public utilities bill, which.
If It passes as amended by Senator
Works, will include universal transfers.

Maj. Shelton Attack Present Sys
tem of Mnnasrement.
Declaring that the United States army
is individually efficient and collectively
worthless, Maj. George H. Shelton, ot
the Bureau of Insular Affairs, appeared,
yesterday before the House Committee
on Expenditures In the War Department
to discuss the present plan of army
organization. Maj. Shelton insisted that
the arnfy should bo made compact and
available through speedy mobilization
for an emergency ot war.
"The troops should be located in towns
and cities." he said, "This would put a
stop to desertions duo to the monotony
of array life in small remote posts. Just
because a man Is a soldier he should
not be cut oft from all contact with his
fellow-men. This system ot Isolation Is
contrary to that followed in every other
country In the world. It results in ex
travagance, expense, and unavailability
of men when needed.''

conditions. This will not Improve much
until there Is a better understanding of
the purposes of the men who will be
placed at the head of the great political
parties in the approaching political cam

the waiting attitude of business Is due
to the apcrehenslon and doubt as to the

a while. The business men are uncertain
as to just what tbey want.
"What hostility has been directed
against President Taft, I believe. Is due
to misunderstanding as to his policies
and purposes, but since I have finished
my trip I have observed that business
Is beginning to look to him as the man
