Johnstown, Pa , Feb. 11. And now it
Is about to dawn upon the thouands
of people heieabouts that it is a happy
tiling for Johnstown that the steel lall
pool has collapsed. What effect It
may have upon the Cambiia lion com
pany Is nobody's business, but the
stockholder. The Impoitnnt point Is
that Immense outers for steel mils are
being placed at $17 a ton, and what
the people want to know mound here
is wlieie does the Cambiia lion com
pany stand? Can it meet the slump?
Will It make steel lalls for $17? Is It
able to fight with the Camegle-Rocka-feller
combine? Can It meet the cut
prices of the Illinois Steel company
and the other large lail manufnetur

"You may say." said General Man
ager Chailes S. Price, of the Cambiia
lion company, to a United Associated
Presses leporter today, that the Cam
biia lion company will take all the
steel i all orders It can possibly 1111 at
$17 a ton. If the pi ice goes lower we
will meet the llguies. The Cambiia
lion company will not quit the Held.
It is in the light and will stay in it to
Concerning the outlook for business,
Mr Pi ice expiesbed it as his comic
tlon that from now on there will be an
enoi moils pioduction of steel lalls.
"This will mean," he said, and this is
the wondei fully good news evetybody
will lejoice to hear, "that business
will levive In every other diiection."
"Can you make steel tails for $17
at n piollt?" Mr. Pi Ice was asked
"No; but that win not matter to the
Cambria company. We will simply be
obliged to put a stop to expenditures
in some diiectlons to meet whatever
less there may be at the end of the
light. But as far as Johnstown is con
cerned, it means business and pros
perity." "Will the price fall below $17?"
"I do not think so. Cyrus Elder,
solicitor for the Cambria Iron com
pany, eldently legards the stoiy that
Cainegle and Roekafeller design to
contiol the steel tail market of the
world as wild newspaper talk. Con
cerning the tepoited Cninegie-Roeka-feller
combination to that end, Mi.
Elder said: "If Cainegle and Rocke
feller have any such Idea In view, they
will find that this Is a eiy, very laige
Mr. Eider did not know what effect
the drop in the pi ice of steel tails
would have on the Cambria company,
but he said he guessed that whatevei
happened the Cambiia company would
be able to do business at the old stand
Cambiia otilclals said today that it
was toollsh to listen to the talk that
Is going the rounds to the effect that
the Cainegle-Itockefeller syndicate
would control the markets of the woild.
"We have one of the veiv finest and
best l all mills In the woild," said Gen
eral Manager Price, "and w hen it comes
to that we are piepaied to make lalls
as cheap as any of them."
It was also brought out today In
talking with a gentleman closely con
nected with the Cambiia company that
the only possible advantage the Carnegie-Rockefeller
have over the Cambiia company Is in
the matter of freights on oies ftom the
mines. And It was added that If It
should ever come to a "show down"
the Cambria company would find a way
to get its oies cheaper.
SITUATION AT PITTSBURG.
'Pittsburg, Pa., Feb. 11. The situa
tion in the steel rail business this
morning shows that the cut in prices
has icsolved Itself Into a bitter war for
supremacy. It is learned that the Car
negie Steel company Is meeting all
competition of the Illinois company and
has instiucted Its lepresentatives in
Chicago to sell rails at $17 In Chicago,
or $14.25 in Pittsbuig. a lower tlguie
than has been quoted In any leports
When the pool went to pieces in the
Pittsburg meeting Monday an agiee
ment Is said to have been made be
tween the two big concerns operating
west of the mountains to maintain
pi ices, which were then fixed at $20
Pittsburg and $21 at Chicago, but each
firm was to go after any business that
it could obtain. President Gates, of
the Illinois Steel company, it Is alleged,
went diiect to Chicago, and within two
houis the wlies weie burdened with
Messages to all the railroads of the west
quoting tails at $18. The Cainegle
company at once !sued ordeis to theii
agents to meet all cuts that might be
made, and as a lesult today the Cai
negle company at Chicago is selling
mils at $14.2o per ton, which with the
fi eight from Pittsburg added, makes
a i ate of $17 and the war It is said Is
to be to the bitter end.
Mr. Cainegle arrived In Pittsburg
last evening and held a conference with
the ofllclals of his company this moi n
ing. Mr. Carnegie was not accessible
to newspaper tepiesentatlves today,

Athens, Feb. 11. The government
has foimulated a notlllcatlon to the
poweis setting forth that Greece can
not i cumin a more spectator of the
events which are taking place In Crete,
and that the ties of race and religion
compel her to Intervene In behalf of
the oppressed and outiaged Clulstlans
In that island.
In the chamber of deputies last even
ing Premier Delynnnls said that either
the poite would be pieented by the
poweis ftom sending reinforcements to
Crete, or would persist In sending them
theie. In elthei case, the premier de
clated, the Greek government had de
cided to take action piomptly and de
cisively When Crete demanded a
union with the mother countiy, he said,
Gieece would not temain indifferent.
At the conclusion of the remaiks of
M. Delynnnls, the leader of the oppo
sition assured the premier that the
government would hae the heartiest
support of the opposition, which as
sail ance evoked piolonged cheers.
The Cretan committee here are mak

the utmost couitesy, and was informed,
so far as diplomacy allowed, of the at
titude of Gieece on the Cretan ques
tion. His protest, however, was, so far
as known, productive of no result.
The Gieek government will not recall
the llotllla and fuithermoie, a sec
ond flotilla will shortly start for Crete.
The ttoubles In the Island have caused
many of the residents to flee to Gieece
for safety Since the outbreak began
fully 8,000 Cret-ms have arrived at the
Piraeus. As in the case of'the previous
exodus from Crete many of the tefugees
aie unable to cate for themselves, and
the government will be compelled to

London, Feb. 11. The Gazette com

theie is abundant foundation for the

government as a matter so setious as

Some UncasIness"Spaeches of
Alorgan and Tnrpie.
Washington, Feb. 11. Senator Sher
man, who Is In charge of the general
tieaty of arbltintion with Gieat Bri
tain now under seciot discussion In
the senate, Is beginning to show some
uneasiness. Just befoie the adjourn
ment this afternoon he notified the
senate that It was time an agreement
was leached, when the final vote
should be taken. Mr. Sherman asked
if unanimous consent could not be had
for some day next week Mr. Moigan,
the most peislstent opponent of the
tieaty, demurred A colloquy fol
lowed between those two senatois,
with others occasionally putting In a
woui, In which It was apparent that
Mr. Sherman would be unable to se
cuio any kind ot an agreement, and
lie theiefoie gave up the effort He
ginning with next week Mr. Sherman
will repeat his lequest ftom day to day
and Insist that action be taken befoie
that week Is over.
Rut two speeches were made on the
tieaty today, Mt. Tuiple, of Indiana,
whose position bus hltheito not been
known by his associates, came out
stiongly foi the convention as nego
tiated and took the ground that the
amendments of the committee weie
wholly unnecessaiy and tended but
to confuse the public and encumber
the Instiument itself. The Indiana
senator then pioceeded to pay his le
spects to Senator Moigun and leply to
the speech that senatoi made on Tues
day, when he udvocated the abiogatlon
of the Clayton-Iiulwer tieaty. He
pooh poohed the Idea that Great Hil
tnln had set a trap for the United
States, as Mr Moigan hud contended,
and dt nieil that we were about to en
ter Into that tiap. He had no feat
of any seciet pitfalls In this treaty,
but nsbeited that it was a plain,
stialghtfoivvaid effott on the pait of
two gieat "nations; speaking the same
tongue to enter into an agreement to
settle their disputes without lecouise
Mr Moigan i oiled to Mr Tuiple,
but when the senate ndj ilirned he had
not concluded He went ovei much of
the giouud that he had previously
coveted anil gave notice of nn amend
