NBV YORK, Jan. 23,-Thc United State?
Steel corporation and tlie Bethlehem Steel
company participated fur lour years in
an International pool In armor pinto
which divided up the business of "neutr.il
markets." William E. Corey, former
president of the steel corporation, so tes
tified today at the hearings In the gov
ernment's suit to dissolve the corporation
tinder the Sherman antl-truat law. It
was the first direct testimony which the
Rovernment has been able to obtain an to
tlin existence of such n pool.
Mr. Corey, who resigned us president of
tho gteel corporation In 1910, was unable
to recall today that the armor plate pool
had existed until his memory had Jmen
refreshed by the reading1 of minutes of
the Carnegie Steel company quoting him
as advising: against joining with the
"armor combination" In the erection of
an armor plate plant in Japan. This was
In 1902, shortly after the organization of
the steel corporation.
The witness then testlfed that a com
bination of armor plato manufacturers
in KnRlarid, France and Germany and the
Tnlted States had existed as late ns "1904

The Carnegie Steel company and the
Hethlehem Steel company were tho Amur
lean members of the combination, he
"WJiat was the agreement of those In
the pool?'' asked Judgo Jacob M. Dickin
son, attorney for the Kovernment.
"1 was not familiar with the details,"
said Mr. Corey, adding Colonel Millard
llunslcker, representative of the Carnecle
company abroad, conducted the negotia
The witness testified 'that during tho
existence,).; .tbo agveementthe American
members -had not, to his knowledge, at
tempted to comimte for armor plate
either In England, France or Germany.
"Did th foreign firms bid for United.
.Stales government contracts?" he was
"I believe, that It Is provided by law
that the United .States government con
tracts in armor plate shall be given only
to American manufacturers," was the
Domcntlc Prices UlRlirr.
AVhen Mr. Corey resumed his testimony
today ho was questioned briefly con
cerning James A. Parrell, now pres
ident of the corporation, who, Mr. Corey
said yesterday, conducted tho negotia
tions for the formation of tho Interna
tional steel rail pool.
Jacob M. Dickinson, counsel for the
government, then took up the question
of tho difference between the domestic
nnil export price ot steel rails.
"Was the mill price of steol rails, sub
sequent to tho formation of tha steel
corporation, grcnfSr or less than the (
export price" ho asked.
"I want to be accurate," replied Mr.
Corey. "The mill price on foreign bus
iness netted the producer less than on
"Then the domestic, price was higher?"
Mr. Corey conceded that such was In
effect the case.
The government attorney took up the
competitive position of tho Tennessee
' Coal and Iron company In the stel
rail trade previous to Its absorption by
the United States Steel corporation in
, 1907. Mr. Corey said that the Tennessee
Coal and Iron company, was manufac-

ST. IOUIS. Mo.. Jan. 23.-USpedal Tele
gram.) Tho I'nlted States court of ap
peals today reversed the decision ot tho
United States district court In the case
of the government against the Lexington
Mill and Elevator company of Ix-xlngton,
Neb., In which the lower court declared
that the electrical bleaching process
known at the Alsop process was a viola
tion of the provisions of the national pure
food and drugs act.- Tho appellate court
ordered the lower Court to retry tho case.'
Tho caco originally was heard In Kan
sas City. Judge Smith McPhcrson charged
th jury that If It was found the bleaching
process added anything to the flour,
whether It was Injurious or not. a verdict
In favor of the government should be
found. The appellate court held that
Judge McPherson erred In so charging
The government suit against the Lex
ington Mill and Elevator rompany. was
In reality a test case In voiding the use
of the Alsop process machinery In the
mills of the country. John 15. Mitchell,
president of tho Alsop process company,
declared today after the court's decision
was rendered, that he believed the .decree
settled tho question for all time, and that
there would bo no other trial of tho

When tho attorneys for the milling com
pany aigucxl tho case before tScuppcllate
court It was admitted that In the bleach

was proved that a man would have to eat
about 15,000 loaves of brond before he
would get an orlnary dose of the nitrate,
and that even If he did take a dose of it,
It would not hurt him. Atorneys for the
milling company declared that the Alsop
process waB so valuable to tho millers
of the country that if Its use was pro- 1
hlblted the people of the country might
have to ceaso eating bread a year to give
the wheat and flour an opportunity to
become ripened or to bleach by tho pro

capablo of enabling niillern to grind green

By any other process, it wao declared, It
would bo necessary to wait until tlw

was ground It would require weeks for the.
