«jual reticence was observed by the principals and
their attorneys, id at tne close of the day it had
r.ot horn ascertained when the expected announce
ment by .1 V Morgan & Co. would be made.
Charles M. Schwab, president of the Carnegie com
rtnv. had a conference in the rooming with Mr.
llorgsr. at the hitter's office, but declined to fay
.nytritnu afterward, except that progress was be«
ing made in the negotiation*.
A rumor was current that the final paper* in th«
consollnation would be signed at a meeting, at
wUlch Mr. Morgan was to be present, at the Met
ropolitan Club in the cv.-ning, but this report was
rot generally credited. One of the lawyers now
enpacefl in drawing up the papers of the proposed
combination said that he had not heard of such a
B»aet!n»r. and be doubted that it mould be Ml
vlthout the presence of the legal representatives.

left for the new common slock about 15 per cent j

It Is said that the terms on which the Federal

an<i American Bridge companies mill be taken over
have been sett!. .1. but that negotiations are still in
progress in regard to the Moore proiierties— with
?¦very prospect, however, of a satisfactory agree
ment soon being- reached. The preferred shares of
the teel companies were strong and active yester
day, while the common stocks were weak, on re- .
ports that the former would be exchanged on much '
more advantageous terms relatively than the latter. j

The directors of th.- American Stetl and Wire
Company met yesterday, but what, if any, action
wax taken by them could not be learned. The an-
T.ual meeting of the company will be held to-day.
As tc the report a day or two ago that "The
United States Pteei Company" ha 3 been decided
upon as the title of the new corporation. It may
be noted that there is already a company of that
name. It was Incorporated In West Virginia in
September. IS9S. with a capital of $a.sr>».«oo, and has
a plant at Everett. Mass.
A story printed yesterday, which found no cop.
firmation, was that the Morpan Interests have
been buying shore lands on >• itoa Inland and have
taker, options on a large tract at Montauk Point,
with the purpose of establishing near this city the
preatett shipbuilding yard in the United States and
also constructing l.ere the largest iron and steel
plant In the world. »he ere being brought to tide

The executive head of an Independent «eel corn
ji»n>\ discussing yesterday the probable effect of
the Fteel combination on trade conditions, is quoted
us saying that the consolidated company will have
to guarantee dividends !r. order to find a market
for its securities-, and that to pay such dividends
prices for manufactured articles mill have to be
eaalotair.ed This. It was explained, mill mean that
the trust will have no opportunity, even should it
asstre. to cut prITS for the purpose of forcing out
the independent companies. The result, as se«n by
thr Independent president, would me-an the Inevi
table maintenance of prices, with resultant good

TAX ON ART l\\n\ \:<T>.
At the quarterly meeting of the Board of Trus
tees of the Metropolitan Museum of Art yesterday
afternoon the subject of the Federal Inheritance
tax. as applied to public Institutions, was again dis
c-.ipsed. It was decided to continue the endeavor
to have, the law repealed, so far as it applies to
such Institutions. Both the Finance Commute* of
the Senate, and the Ways and Means Committee
of the House of Representatives have inserted pro
visions In the War Tax Reduction bills reported by
them doinc away with this portion of the Inheri
tance tax. and It Is hope] ar.d expected that the
final till, when reported back by the conferred, will
contain the provision. The I^epixiature at Albany
has not seen fit to remove the State tax. though,
and it will be to Albany saaacssAir that future
effort* will be directed.
William E. Dodge, chairman of the Executive
Committee or the Board, said yesterday that the
continuance of the tax would mean the loss of
many valuable bequests to the Museum, as It would
bankrupt them to try to pay the tax. The State
and Federal tax or. the C P. Huntlngton bequest,
for Instance, would amount to about $250.00. and
the combined tax on the R. G. Dun bequest ¦sisjM
l>e J"..C00 or JSO.OOO. falssi th* tax was removed
the Museum would be obliged to refuse the collec
"This Museum is a public Institution," raid Mr.
Dodge. "It la open to all. rich and poor alike, and
Is sot only one of the greatest educational factors
In the city, but goes far toward building up th*
dry ar.d attracting people here. That a man should
be taxed for being a public benefactor Is monetrous
and absurd."
Of iha feature of the report of the trustees, de
claring that the Mu*eum would expend no more
money to keep the building in repair. Mr. Dodge
a&id that no trouble was expected with the city au
thorities on that account, as the relations had al
ways be«n most amicable.
The m**tlr.s' yesterday being the first one of the
year, officers for the ye^r were elected and va
cancies in tho Board of Trustees were filled. The
officers elected were Henry G. Maitiuand, preel

The report for the year 1900. read and adopted,

Museum for the year was 112».#C55. The number
