ST. ANTHONY. Idaho, Jan. 24. With a
talc of death and Intense suffering State
Game Warden D. F. Hudson of Wyoming
arrived here today from Jackson's 'Hole,
Wyoming. Ho was caught in a snowslide

similar slide last year.
Warden Hudson raid that they were
caught In an avalanche of snow and ice
that swept vehicle and all off the road
and down the mpuntalnslde Into a creek.
Hudson was burled beneath the slide, but
managed to dig his way to the surface
and then started digging for Curtis.
At last he uncovered tho boy'a font,
but his head was submerged In the creek
and he had drowned before Hudson oauld
drag him out-.

fore he reached assistance. AH wires

have Instructed their Peking represents
lives to Initiate the loan If the ministers
in Peking of the six powers of which ihe
loaning bankers arc citizens are satisfied
with the conditions of the contract.
The ministers, however, are by no
means unanimous In approving the condi
tions. The French minister Insists upon
drastic conditions governing the loan; in
cluding definite undertakings In the con
tract for the appointment of financial
advisers by China and the arrangement
of minute details In connection with the
financial reorganization and supervision
of the country. Certain, of the other min
isters demand payment from the loan of

The Chinese government, which has
agreed to all the original terms of the
bankers, suggests dealing with tho ap
pointment of financial advisers and other
details of the loan agreement In a sep
arate note, thus satisfying a majority of
the bankers.

NUW YORK. Jan. 34. Tho Tennessee
Coal and Iron company wbm taken over
by the United States Steel corporation
during the panic of 1907 despite tho pro
tests of the corporation's president, Wil
liam E. Corey.
Mr. Corey so testified today under
cross-examination at tho hearing of the
government's suit to dissolve the corpor
ation. He declared ho had not concurred
In the purchase because the price paid
was too high This price was the equiva
lent of $119 a share. Mr. Corey said ho
did not believe tho stock was worth more
than $50 a share. He added that John
W. Gates and others who controlled Ten
nessee Coal mid Iron, had placed a
"nulsanco value" on the pioperty.
"Mr. Gates told me that the stock was
cheap nt $250 a share," Corey testified.
"I Invariably tepllcd that he was $200 ton
high."
Wiii Itenl I'ii in pel 1 1 or.
Despite all efforts of attorney's for tho
corporation to confute his testimony. Mr.
Corey persisted In his contention that
the Tennessee Coal and iron company
wus and would have continued n steel
rail competitor of the United States Steel
corporation If It had not been taken over.
One reason was because of the "nuisance
value." He admitted that the company
could not at tha't time make Its open
hearth steel rails at n profit, but said It
would soon have been ablo to reduce Its
costs,
Mr. Corey was questioned about Judge
K. II. Gray's knowledge of steel pools.
"He knew about all the pool all the
time, because he attended some of the
meetings," said Mr. Corey, mentioning
the rail pool and the plate and structural
pool meetings.
Before the Stanley steel Investigating
committee Judge Gary testified that as
coon as the existence of tho pools came
to his knowledge he had ordered them
stopped.
,Mr'.-Coi4y4ittldthat-4ie was not-In ac
cord with Judgeu Gury's views at all
times, hut declared that there was no 111
feeling between them, although there- wus
some question as to who was the chlof
executive, himself or Judge Gary.

poration, Issued the following statement
this afternoon:
"There Is no foundation whatever for

voluntary dissolution and that It will
apply to the supreme court for direction
how to go about It.
"The question has not been up for con
sideration before the board of directors.

the corporation,"
London Papers Do
Not Like Knox Note
I3NDON, Jan.. 24. Seoretary Knox'a
reply to Blr Edward Grey, on the question
of Panama Is found unsatisfactory by
those evening newspapers which com
ment on It.
The Westminster Gnzctte, generally
looked upon as the mouthpiece of tho
government, says:
'The Knox suggestion leaves the door
open to a long series of bickerings which
might do much to undermine the good re
lations of the two countries."
The Pall Mall Gazette says:
"Coming from any other country than
the united Btates, the tone of Secretary
Knox's reply would be deeply resented.
Unless International law overrides mu
nicipal law when treaty rights clash with
It, international law haa no existence and
peaceful Intercourse between states be
comes Impossible."
