My Dear Mr. Alturny-(lnral :
Judge E. II. aa, v aad Mr. H. C.

Thy .rate that ther la a certain
bualneaa firm (the name of which I
have not been told, but which la of
real Importance In New York bual
nea circle) which will undoubtedly
fail tills weak If help la not given.
Among Ita aaaata ar a majority of

A , . p 1 1 atlon ha been trgently mule
to the Mtel Corporation to purehaaa
thla atork aa the only meane of
avoiding a failure. Judge Oary and
Mr Kr.ck Informeal ma that aa a mere
bualnea tranaaction tiiey du not cam
to nurchaee th atork; that under
ordiber.M Ircuuntaiu t they Would
not roi. udar purehaa ng the atark,
becauae but little benefit will coma
to the Bteel Corporation from tha
putxliaae, that they are aware that
the purehaa will be uaed aa a han
dle for attack upon them on tha
ground that they are striving to aa
cure a monopoly of the bualneaa and
prevent competltlon--nt that thla
would repreacnt what could honeatly
b aahl, but what might rickleaaly
and untruthfully be aakl.
They further infoimud me. that hi
a ma'ter of fact tha policy of th
company haa been to decline to ac
quire more than ) pr cent, of tho
atel prnpertlea. and that thla pur
pnae hua been praavrd In for aev
oral year past, with the object of
preventing theaa accuaattona, and a
a mitter of fact their proportion of
tel prnlaTttl haa hiBhly danreaaed
u tha: It I below thla iO par cent .
and the aruulaltlon of the property
In qucetlun wll no ral It above
I" per cent.
But they feel that It la tmmenanly
to their Intrreat, hi to th Inlrrnt
of very reaponalble bulnee man,
to try to prevent a pant.' nnd gin
araJ Induatrlnl amaaliup at till time,
and they arc willing to go Into thla
tranaaction. which they would not
otherwlae go Into, becauae It aattM
th opinion of thoae heat fitted to
ex;lrea Ju lgment In New York that
It will be an Important fu.-tor In
preventing n break thill might be
ruinoua; and Uiat thl hua been
uiit'd upon them bv the combination
of (he moat ri'aponalblc lianker In
New York who ar thu anua-ed In
endeavoring to aava the aituation.
