b ff Reduction Will Take Effect Before
May and 600000 Employees of
the Various Companies Will
Be Affected
1 It was stated officially today that wages will be reduced in the
ited and iron trades before May I The wage cut it is estimated will
be no less than 10 per cent on unskilled labor and from 15 to 20 per
cent on skilled labor
S Six hundred thousand employees of the steel industry and its
allied interests will be affected by the reduction which is the next move
on the steel programme to follow last weeks abolition by J P Mor
gans steel trust of its stand pat business policy and the opening of a
price war with the fourteen leading independents in the steel world
Tho yearly payrollwages ami sala

companiesamounts to the not Incon
Merable figure of JGOOOOOOOO The Steel
Trusts proportion of this great sum 13
IMO000000 divided among IO00 em
ployees In a normal period when all Its
plants are operating full time
600000 Workers
The employees of the steel Industry
number more men than the whole Con
federacy put In the field during the en
tire civil war and If these tiOOCCO men
of sinews and brawn should elect to
attend the Taft Inauguration next week
they would make a human line which
single file would stretch from Grants
Tomb In New York City to the White
House In Washington U C
Depending upon this army of steel
Workers are Z400000 women and chil
dren In fact the people directly af
fected by the eddies and currents of
the wage problem applied to the steel
trade whirlpool equal the entire popula
tion of Switzerland
Wise economic experts hare already I
harpened their pencils and are out
theorizing that the open market plan I
Is a great public benefit how a wholly I I
rtlftclal and untenable situation has I
been abandoned with a view to read
justing conditions to a basis where
makers and consumers might meet on
equal terms But this fact remains
the announced wage reduction means
the full dinner pall leaner by at lead I
175000000 worth of necessities to a class
of people already shorn of the luxuries
of life
Judge Gary Reticent
No one relalzea the effect of a price I I
war on the sire orkers morn than I
former Judge E H Gary chairman of i
the United States Steel Corporation
Judge Gary was seen today at the
WaldorfAstoria Hotel by an Evening
World reporter lie said Just now I
do not care to say anything about the
effect of the open market on the wages
of steel workersI am very sorry
Judge Gary was asked If there was
any silver lining In the open market
cloud hanging over the steel workers
I will not discuss wage cuts was his
final reply
Consumers of steel manufacturers
building contractors and bridge builders
are represented as Jubilant over prospec
tive reductions It Is pointed out that
while the steel workers will be hit hard
other departments In the world of com
merce will boom ana bring back pros
perity But buyers seldom purchase on
a falling market They he a habit of
waiting for the bottom and then buying
on the upward movement
What steel consumers wnnt to know Is I
how tar competitive cutting of < rlets I
will go and when will It end Tncro has
not been an open market since Mr I
Morgan Marled the billiondollar Steel
Trim on IU career In the spring of 1WI
The frequently illscii seil 51 cut < if Sep
tfmbcr KOI was a formal and united
lowering o the schilule price
In substantiation of the statement that I
there will be light buying In steel can
be cited the situation In copper when
only recently Its pric was put down
from Hl2 to 1512 cents a pound All I
copper consumers are holding oft wait
Ing for the price to reach say 121 cents
A Flank Movement
The report that the abandonment of
the attempt to maintain prosperity
prices was a flank movement to Influ
ence tariff regulation a sort of a
Wall street object lesson Is heard most
frequently In the locality of the broker
age offices where strenuous attempts
are being made to stem the unloading I
of steel stocks But an object lesson
L of such a character would hardly be
t made before tariff reductlorslt would
t be most apt to occur after the Installa
tion of a lower tariff

Death of President Roosevelts
Nephew Saddens Harvard
The body of Stewart Douglas Robin
son third son of Douglas flnblnson and
a nephew of President Roosevelt NaB
brought to Now York today from Har
vard University where the young man
was killed early yesterday by a fall
from a window on the sixth floor of
Hampdcn Hall a fashionable dormitory
Accompanying the body from Cam
bridge In a private car were Mr and I
Mrs Robinson parents of the young
man i Monroe Douglas Robinson and I
Theodore Douglas Robinson his broth
ers and Mrs T D Robinson Vlss
Corinne Robinson his sisters and Theo I
dore Roosevelt Jr his cousin The cas
ket was taken at once to the Robinson
home No 422 Madison avenue The
family announced that the funeral would I
probably be held Wednesday morning
In New York the burial on the old home
estate at Henderson Point Htrklmer
Young Stewart Robinsons trarle dealt
lisa plunged the whole university In
gloom He was popular with all the
students although a Junior not quite
twenty years old six feet high weighed
m pounds and an athlete In fine train i
It appears that Robinson left the A D
Club Saturday night complaining of
not feeling well and Instead of
going to his own rooms on Mount
Auburn street went to the apartment i
of his elder brother Monroe Douglu
Robinson In Hampden Hall almost dl I
really opposite to the clubhouse Mon
roe Robinson who Is a senior at Har
vard was In New Tork but Stewart
Robinson had the freedom of the place
and several of his friends accompanied
him there
Fell Through Open Window
It Is believed that after his friends
elt Robinson got out of the bed and
walked toward the window to open It
wider It Is thought that as he leaned
out over the sill which Is two feet wide
he became dizzy and losing his balance
ell out of the window
He was a member of several of the
bestknown and most exclusive clubs at
Harvard Including the Sphinx Institute
of 1770 11 K E Hasty Pudding and A
D Tliswlnter he was dretsubstltute goal
for the hookey team and was playing a
good game but was not allowed to play
In any of the intercollegiate contests as
he was out of college a part of last I
year and to failed of eligibility under
the oneyear resident rule
Mr Robnson gave out a statement In
which he said his son who would have
been twenty next month had always
slept with i windows wIne open Ti I
window In the dormitory was at least
rive feet from the floor which necessi
tated his climbing upon a table to get
to the window It Is lIved that In
opening the window half uleep as he I
probably wait lie lost his balance and
fell out after the window was opened
A table was found pushed up against
the window
The mother of Stewart Douglas Rob
Inson wit Miss CorInne Roosevelt a
slater of President Roosevelt and young
Stewart was a frequent visitor to the
White House as well as a guest of his
uncle the President at Oyster Bay
having spent put of last summer at the
latter place
Ills death recalls the triple end of
Adelbert Hay only son of the late Sec
retary of State John Hay who met
death In a similar manner by a fall
from a window at Yale just after he
had returned from South Africa where
he had been a United States Consul
Accordlnj to dtspatches from Wash
Ington President tlooaevtlt did not
learn of hId nephews death until he
reached Hampton Roads today as the
news reached the White House too late
to be communicated to Aim before his

Evanston Starts the Had of
Teaching Young Women
Manly Art of SelfDefense
Jiy nthel Lloytl Patterson
The last time my husband came
homo after midnight I hauled off
and landed a left jab following It
closely with a terrific rIght swing to
body that got him groggj all right I
so I experienced no further difficulty
Iin rushing him to a corner and ham
mering him
That Is probably a fair sample of
the conversation we shall overhear at I
afternoon teas In the future If the
precedent that the Kvanston Womans
Club has established become univer
sally accepted
Mrs Catharine TCnuRh XlcCulloch n
womnn Justice of the Peace Intro
duced the resolution to the Evanston
club that suggested that its girl mom
bern should bo taught the manly art
of celfdefciiBi Her motion was car
ned by nn overwhelming majority
Only one weakling member ventured to
murmur an amendment that would
cause tne resolution to read taught
to defend themselves from violence In
a ladylike manner Tho weakling
member was firmly squelched
No longer will the fair sex give theIr
admirers the mitten Instead they
will hand them the quick mitt
Putting Baby to Bleep
How much simpler too It will be to
land one gently but firmly on the babys
solar plexus when fond mamma wants I
to put urn to sleep
Or fancy ducking under Bridget
hamaker and getting to her heavily
with a vicious upper cur when she burns
the steak
The roll call of the Womans Club of
the future will read something like
Flosle the Mitt Fllnger Sarah the
Savage Long Armed Laura Jessie
the Jabber and Knockout Norah
Of course It Is all a Joke to speak
of women rosily taking up boxing
laughed Mrs William S Dessar one
of the most active members of the i
Womans Press Club It a woman could
not keep her husband at home by pow
dering her own flOe she certainly could
not by punching his Of course that
Is metaphor
I mean to Buy that It a woman has
done nil she can to make herself at I
tractive she certainly can arouse no
further Interest by any brand of quar
Hut of course you cannot take the
Idea of an educated woman pummelling
her husbawl seriously The type of I
woman who would do that sort of thing I
would let flatlronc and finger nails take
the place of methods and mitts
She Boxes Herself I
Now as a matter of fact Mrs Des
jar admitted It may be amusing to 1
know that I am not such a bad boxer
and wrestler myself but I did not g i
Into It with any Idea of ever match
my brawn against Mr Dessirt T e
truth Is that I have a son of fifteen jrd
as WP hall always been pretty close I
comrades he has taught me most of hu
accomplishment I
I play tennis arid golf and all that
sort of thing but for entirely lflsli
reasons First because It enables me
to be with mv ton most of the time and
second because through healthy exer
clfe I manage to retain my abounding
good health But I have not landed an I
upper cut on any one reV finished Mrs
Dis ar and I do not Imagine I ever
Mrs William Cummins Story of No
30 West Ninetieth streot was rather
shocked at the Idea of her sister club
women donrltv the fistlve glove
I have not heart anything about this
Hvinaton club she remarked and
ciTtalnly there has not luen any such
discussion In tho New York clubs If
women should take up boxing It would
be simply as they would any other
gymnasium exercise not with any Idea
of felfdefiiiac
Mrs W J De Illveri of No 131

the question any more seriously than
had the others
Boxing preparatory to feltdefense

Engineer George Must Defend
Action by City to

Through a decision entered by Justice
Platzek made public toda t revealed
a suit In the Supreme Court In which
the city of New York seeks to collect
13M73 taxes on the personal estate of
Wllllsm I George of No 310 West
Eightysixth street who rays he haint
any personal property to tax and was
never assessed before
Justice Platiek says he Is not con

cuniary ability to pay the tax and that
It Is no excuse that he was not taxed
It was on the assessment for IO The

notice to him was merely perfunctory

submitted to an examination In which
he swore he had n bonds no stock no

I am a mining engineer and at the
time of this assessment on my alleged

never been assessed for HPV personal
property and as I had never inspected
