Severance Quotes Taft and
Gary, and Asks Court to
Ignore "New Government
Economic Theories."
Urging Judges Bulllngton, Hunt. Mc
pherson nnd Woolley to cllmlnnto any
new Government theory of economics
from their decision In regard to the
charges against tho "Steel Trust." C. A.
Severance, of St. Paul, Minn., arguing
for the United Stntcs steel Corporation
today. In a forceful way touched upon
various phases of tho operation of the de
fendant company.
"Wo arc not hero to consider now
theories of economics," said Mr. Sever
ance, "we have been criticised unjustly
by the Government."
Every scat In the United States Circuit
Court of Appeals, In the Federal Building,
was occupied when the heating wns re
sumed this morning.
The St. Paul attorney cited various
United States Couit decisions In different
trust cases. Ho denied that the "Steel
Trust" or any of tho ISO subsidiary com-
pan'es were guilty of coercion.
Referring to pools, tho attorney said
that there were pools In this country
long bofoie tho Government began Its
crusade ngalnst alleged violations of the
Slurnian anti-trust laws. Ho named tho
plato pool, tho tube pool, wire pool, which
existed ln the early eighties. Prices of all
steel products were quoted In couit, each
pt.'cc was accompanied with official rec
ords. It was contended by tho lawjcr that
tho present prices of all steel products
today were considerably lower than thoso
of any other commodity.
Mr. Severance denied that prices went
up after tho "Gary dinner" movement
was Inaugurated.
Discussing the attitude observed by the
Steel Corporation toward Its competitors,
a statement made by Judgo Gary some
time ago was quoted.
The statement Is as follows:
"We have treated out competitors as
competitors. We havo pushed our busi
ness nnd puBhed It hard. Our competi
tion has always been active nnd keen,
and wo have done business with our com
petltors In a business way; but we have
trettcd our competitors as gentlemen
ought to be treated At least that has
been our endeavor. Wo have been of
benefit to them whenever we could.
"If we have been dishonest or tricky
or mean in our treatment of our com
petitors it has not been done with the
consent or knowledge of those In control
of the affairs of the Steel Corporation,
its Board of Directors, its Finance Com
nilttee or Its officers We have tried to
be frank and open with them. We havo
admitted them to our mills. We have
given them our figures. We have frankly
stated to them our business conititinr,,, i-
.!... II ..... i --...,,o ,,,
and In every way have tried to

give tlK'in the benefit of our miwri.n..
so that I am Justified In saying we have

Finds Nothing Objectionable in Show
Whose Bills Excited Suspicion.
Information received concerning a show
at the Trocadero Theatre, which was
said to need police censoring, led Lieu
tenant Smiley, of the Uth nnd Winter

Ho recid signs on the bill board before

announced "Cleopatra " Tho police critic
remembered Cleopatra was a lady who
once upon n time lost a kingdom. Another
sign rend, "a taste of Forbidden Fruit."
Lieutenant Smiley hurried into the thea

thought she was. He told the manage
