MERGER OF COPPER INTERESTS
Phelps Dodse 3k Co. Properties
Are te Re t a I ted la Fifty
NEW YORK, Dec. 11. The representative
Iron and steel manufacturers from all over
the country gathered at the Waldorf
Astoria tonight at a dinner given by E. M
Gary, chairman of the United States steel
corporation. This Is ths second Sllnner of
Its kind, the first having occurred a year
ago. The purpose Is to bring the manu
facturers together to discuss the Interests
of the trade and to bring about a friendly
co-operation of the different Interests.
Mr. Gary, the chief speaker, said ths
gathering was to "consider a proper
method of distributing our thought and In
fluence to aid In the effort to prevent
disaster to the business Interests! of this
"That some and perhaps many of ths
leading thinkers and writers have mis
Understood our action Is probable," he con
tinued. "Some at least have questioned
the propriety, If not tht legality of our
efforts and apparently others have be
lieved these efforts would be of no sub
stantial benefit, but we knew our motives
were good. We have never Intended to
antagonise the laws of the country or
rights and Interests of any one. We have
occasionally read published criticisms of
our movement on the ground that there
waa a combination or agreement, express
or tmplled, to maintain prices, to restrict
output or to divide territory. Rut the fault
lies In the unjustified assumption of fact."
Mr. Gary declared the steel manufac
turers never Intended or resorted to any
evasion and that an effort would be made
to right whatever Is wrong.
"As to the results of our efforts to co
operate," he continued, "there Is no rea
sonable doubt they have been of great
benefit. The prices have been uniform
and they have' fluctuated more or leas
from time to time. Some manufacturers
have not been as considerate of the In
terests of others as they could have
been. Perhaps all of us have been In
fluenced by motives of selfishness. But
I do not hesitate to say our movement
has prevented wide and sudden fluctua
tions and destructive competition."

Dodge & Co., tho output of which

promises a splendid chance to the peoplo
who enjoy a strong play well enacted. No
question exists as to Miss Shaw's position
In the world of ths stage. She Is In tho
front rank, and any play that gets her
rerlous attention Is well worth while. "Tho
Revelation," la the first of a series of
three, a trilogy dealing with the personal
equation, by Rev. Henry J. Knott, a Chi

to literature. In Chicago tho press was
unanimous In its praise of the work of
