OF STOCK FOR BONDS
Oircn Letter From John Trebane of
Euprland to Directors of
Holders of preferred stock In the United
Stnles Stel Corporation who live in Europe:
and England either oppose or ask delay of
the proposed conversion of 200,000,00 of the
preferred mock Into bonds. The proposition.
In the understanding of the English cap
italists, will reduce the rate of Interest n
their holdings from 7 to ."i per cent, and
gie them nothing In exchange for the loss.
In an open letter to the directors of the
Steel Corporation John Trehane of Lon
don, England, a member of the United
States bar, a friend of the late Colonel In
gersoll, and who represented the United
States in the Delagoa Bay arbitration, has
requested on the part of himself and other
stockholders a postponement of the pro
posal. In a communication addressed to The Re
public Mr. Trehane says:
"The directors should, as to their own con
siderable holdings, certainly not be in a
hurry to fasten a mortgage for their bene
fit on the corporation whose affairs
they manage and for which thev predict
unclouded prosperity. Such anxiety on
their part would be a danger slsnal."
The proposition of the Steel Corporation,
which has awakened wide discussion in the
United States, is double. First it Is pro
posed to raise the KQ.OW.'-W cash by an i
tue of 0 per cent gold bonds, to be redeemed
at the maximum of -sixty years and the
minimum of ten years Ten million dollars
of this is to be uaed for the purchase of
new properties, and JW.O9.000 for improve
ments of prevent properties.
The second part of the proposition In
volves the exchange of stock for bonds.
Mr. Trehane, In his letter to the director",
does not oppose the former, but condemns
the latter us bad financial pollcv. For ne
gotiating the KO.000,000 loan J. 'P. Morgan
& Co. are to receive a commission of J2.CJ0 -000.
which Mr. Trehane considers fair.
For managing the bond issue in exchange
for preferred stock, the same company Is
to receive $6,000,000. Mr. Trehane says that
this Is paying heavy commission from the
nssets of the company as reward for sad
dling the company with a $2,000,000 debt.
Mr Trehane asserts that he has conll
dence In the corporation and its officers,
and believes that the business can continue
to pay 7 per cent on the preferred stock.
He does not wish to secure himself by be
coming the holder of a mortgage and
thereby reducing his Income which was
lust as safe the other way. He prefers to
bo a partner at 7 per cent than a creditor
at C per cent. The exchange would neces
sitate a surrender of 40 per cent of each
stockholder's preferred stock.
