NEW YOIUC, May 13.-The United
States Steel corporation as an Industrial
factor was the subject of today's testi
mony of James A. Farrell, Its president,
In the government suit to dissolve the
corporation under the Sherman anti-trust
law. It was Mr. Farrcll's second day on
the stand Xor the defense. He testified
that the corporation manufactured cotton
ties for the cotton growers of the south
because Us competitors found the busi
ness unattractive and practically had
abandoned It The corporation, he said,
always gave preference to government
work and In a recent Instance had neg
lected other business to rush an order of
steel pilings to New Orleans In order to
jiave the levees from tho flood. It used
Its enormous stocks of pig tin to prevent
speculators from cornering tho commodity
and sold It to competitors at cost when
Attempts to corner It caused a scarcity.

corporation had raised the wages ot Ha
employes V4 per cent, adding 110,000,000 a
year to its payrolls.
! Stop Experimenting

fuL Therefore, th y can not be sold
under the, same name for any length
of time. Then the Identical, worth
less, harmful concoctions are given
new names and advertised again as
totally different preparations to
Defraud the Same Foolish Women
Who Innocently buy them- over and

this will continue as long as women
are so unwise as to experiment with

name has never been changed. It Is

Mr, Farrell gave a clean bill of health
to the American Steel and Wire company,
one of the subsidiaries of the corporation,
which the government alleges Is a monop
oly In Itself. He quoted flguresvto show
that of the hundreds ot different kinds of
wire products, which tht) company manu
factured, Its percentage of production
was less than half ot the country's total
output, and In one Instance he named
a ao-cnllod independent concern as the
manufacturer ot as-much as 75 per cent.
Answering the charge that owing to the
"community ot Interest between railroads
and the steel corporation, the corpora
tion was favored over others In buying
steel, Mr. Farrell said that It was thu
custom of the railroads to get 'their sup-
plies from the steel mills nearest their
shops regardless of who owned the mill.
Poshed Foreign Trade.
The steel corporation, he repeated, had
made every effort to push Its foreign
trade and while the corporation had been
able to obtain higher prices tor Its ex
port products prices to domestlo consum
ers, had grown cheaper. lie added that
the foreign business of the corporation
now was being threatened by new steel
plants In Australia, which could mine
and assemble raw material and manufac
ture steel at a lower cost than the cor
poration. Senate to Fight
Chief of OensuB
WASHINGTON, May lS.-Benate re
publicans began their first 'big tight on
President Wilton's nominations tonight
when the appointment ot W. J. Harris
of Georgia, as director ot the census,
succeeding E. Dana Durand, was taken
up in executive session. For nearly five
hours the senate played at cross pur
poses on the Harris nomination without
ever entering Into a discussion bf the
merits ot the case.
The republicans forced roil call after
roll call on question ot procedure, and
In support ot tactics which the demo
crats termed dilatory. Motions to put the
nomination over until tomorrow, until
Friday and until next week, were put
find defeated and finally when the mem
bership on both sides had dwindled away
to almost nothing, adjournment was
taken until tomorrow at noon.
Republican ltaders have served notice
that they expect to keep up. the fight
against the confirmation ot Harris until
July 1 at least, when Mr. Durand has
announced his intention to quit. Under
the senate rules there Is no question ot
their ability to filibuster. to their hearts'
content, and It they are willing to go
Into long executive sessions day after
.day they can prevent confirmation as
long as their talking powers last.
In the debate tonight an 'unsuccessful
attempt was made to invpkr the 'famous
"Ileed rule" by which members present
in the chamber but not voting were
counted In an attempt to disclose a quo
rum. This innovation brought forth more
speeches, and before the session ended
most of the democrats and -a Urge part
of the republicans had spoken,' although
none touched upon the nomination Itself.

Falconet of Minneapolis. Miss Cameron
had been employed as cashier at John
con's restaurant. These charges wero
dropped and Johnson and the Cameron
girl were married.
It was during the police Investigation
of Johnson's affair with the Minneapolis
girl that facts were unearthed which re
sulted In tho prizefighter's Indictment
by a federal grand Jury In connection
with Mls Bchrelber.
Four ballots wero tnken by the. Jury to
night, the first showing four Jurors for
acquittal and eight for conviction.
James Brlce, a grain dealer of Mar
seilles, III., was foreman ot the Jury.
Two counts of the Indictment were dis
missed yesterday at the request 'of Judge
Carpenter who declared that no good
purpose could be served by airing un
necessary details ot the relations ot John
son and the woman.

I.uclle Cameron-Johnson, his present
wife, did not appear In the court room
at the trial, his attorneys fearing theN
effect of her presoncei Mrs. Tiny John

constantly at his side. Only a few per
sons were In court when the verdict was
reached, Judge Carpenter had ordered
that "scandal fans" be barred from the

smile," which had been on his lips dur
ing tho time of tho Jury's deliberations
failed when the clerk pronounced- the
word "guilty." Johnson sat solemnly In
his seat until Attorney Parkin's motion
(that the fighter bo taken Into custody
was denied, when he slipped .quietly from
his seat and' made his way from the
court room atone.
"I haven't, a thing to say,", he said.
"My attorney will speak for' me."
Johnson was the last witness before
the taking of testimony closed. He ad
mitted that he had sent Miss Schrelber
Un0ney n response to her request by tele
phone, but denied that he had made any
stipulation that she should use It to come
Denied Hrntlnn Up "Woman.
Johnson denied that he had Improper
relations with the Schrelber woman In
the flat here and also denied that he
had forcibly taken money from her or
had "beat up" Etta Duryea.
Johnson spoke In a low voice and at
times hesitatingly. His chin most ot the
time rested on the fingers of his right
hand, with his arms partly folded across
his chest. Beads of sweat stood out on
his forehead and trickled down the side
ot his face. After fifteen minutes on
the witness stand his voice grew moro
distinct and he seemed more at ease.

guilty, knowing as you do the evldonce
In the case," said Assistant District At
torney Harry Parkin, "I do not see how
any of you can go homo nnd look
squarely Into the faces of those you re
spect and admire."
Attorney Bachrach for the defense,
maintained that the general record and
behavior ot the negro was not to be
considered by the Jury. "If he sent her
the money to come' to Chicago for Im
moral purposes he Is guilty," he said.
"That is the only thing to bo considered
by a Jury."
Suit for 63. was filed against John-
son by an automobile tire company to
day, alleging that Johnson had failed to
