Oct. f- Attnmey-Oen- erai Gregory Issued a statement to-day. Serving notice that he would scrutinise ery carefully the formation of mer gers In the Steal Ilk! tS try Biich an are aid to he under consideration by Charlea iL Ichwab aiid William K. Corey. It was Intimated that the Cover ument nilthl prOCSed under the Sherman anti Trust law against combinations similar to the United States Steel Cororatlon. unless the Supreme Court sustains the decision of the United Statea Court of the District Of New Jersey, holding that thin corporation la not In restraint of' trade. The Attorney "General pointed out that If the Steel Corporation la to he re- gardsd as legal no objection can prop, arty be made against the building up of similar combines, lie directed at tention, however, to the fact that the decision of the District Court of. New Jersey In the steel ease Involves a con tmctlon of the Sherman law In con tact with that of another Circuit Court . in the decision on the Harvester case, and indicated the Government's inten tion to combat as etrongly as possible tr.e decision In the case of the Steel Corporation. .Mr. Gregory attrlbut-d the , combinations now in process of forma- j lion directly to the encouragement that I had enme from the Steel Corporation ' dtwawon. Which l Aimed At la -Not clear. The Attorney-General did not make It clear which of the reported steel j n erg. r plana he had in mind In Issuing , his warning;. Two movements In this ll ll Srtlna have been described In news- paper reports recently. Mr. Schwab is j id to hava acquired tr Pennsylvania tea Company and to have been nego- j tiatlng- for the control of the Cambria j Steel Company, with a view of com bining theae two big corporations as the nucleus of an Important new steel corporation. Almost at the same time reports have been In circulation to the itTect that Mr. Corey was looking Into the possibilities of securing control of a number of small steel plants In the hope of establishing a new merger, using tne MldVmle company as a nucleus. It has been reported repeatedly that both men would seek the advice of the Federal Trade Commission and the At torney-Qenetal as to the legality of their pISBS before entering Into any definite ..rmngements. Apparently no formal In SUirtes have been submitted to either the munisaion or the Department of Jus- t.ce, however. while the Attorney-General's state ment refers to "definite ami lircumstan t al ri;rta of a proposed Combination f i:,. ie.petide.it steel companies," it waa Mid at the Iewrtment of Justice to ri Kht that the Attorney-General had be- f.:e him no more tangible data, respeot .:,. these proposals tlian were conveyed ll Inquiries that bad been made by news- papal correspondents, I Sderstaod He a Warning. The Attorney - iencral's notion in com menting upon theoretical cases Is most IIUSl ami was construed ly many as a warning. Here Is Uie Attorney -Uen. erei's statement ! I cannot Is- questioned that if It wae lawful to unite through the United States Steel Corporation one-half of the com petltlva units In the steel trade, tne other ill would also have the right to com bine, And Of course what could be done t i.

To test the matter and obtain opinions from competent observers on not only the drift of sentiment tout Its probable practical effect at the polls In Now York and New Jersey three questions were addressed by Tug Hi v to Democratic and Republican county chairmen of all the counties of both State. Replies were received In sufficient numlapr to show clearly the sentiment as to the effect of the President's declaration. The questions sent out follow: 1. It' fait ore ffa' prosptett in your enmity nn the IPOfMM suffrage nnund mrnl to thr State Cousfffuifon? 2. What effect hat Prctldent Wilson' Sftftoaftorwiaat flitf Tic I for u frage on the vote on the ew York amendment! 3. Are you for or againtt the amendment! Response from chairmen In twenty- ? nine of the New York counties declnre that at least seventeen of the counties are In doubt. Fix are for the amend ment; three at least are against It. Three are "drifting" in favor of It. About ona-half of the chairmen re port that they will vote yes. Only five declare that they will oppose the nmendment. The others are non committal. President "fVIIne' advocacy of uf.

The Democrats alm.t to a m m agree the President's stand will help the cause; the Republicans Bay It will have little effect. Of those replying to Thr Si n's Inquiry as to how they stand per sonally, seven say they will support the amendment and five say they will 1 vote against It. The others of the nineteen chairmen. In thirteen coun ties, who answered are on the fence. Massachusetts politicians do not lw lleve that President Wilson's indorse ment will make much difference In the vote for suffrage. They say the votes cause will be defeated. In Pennsylvania the suffrage leaders believe that Mr. Wilson's action as sures victory The answers of the eminty chair men in New York State follow. Mbaar.
