I Gary, 'executive bead of the
United SlatC3 Steel corporation,
I is to go on the stand in the
government's suit to dissolve the trust,
in refute Corcj-'s sworn statements
that Gary had personally participated
in one or more of the secret mcotiujrs
of steel manufacturers at which prices
were fixed. .Tames A. Farrcll. who
succeeded Corey as president of the
steel corporation, alto will be called
to tho stand by the trust's bi array
of lawyers. The date of their appear
ance lias not yet been definitely de
cided upon. They will probnbly be
among the first witnesses introduced
by the dofense as soon as the govern
ment shall close its ease.
It was intimated toda by dudge
.Jacob Dickinson, the government 's
chief counsel, that his side of the case
may bo brought lo its close within a
-week. Richard V. Lindabury, chiel
I counsel for the trust, said that ho was
noi. yet prepared to stato how much
timo would be required by the defense
for the development of its testimony,
though ho hoped that not more than
a few weeks would be consumed.
Gary Furnishes Room.
Today's hearing before Special Ex
aminer lirowno was held in ono of the
largo rooms, that conslitulo the hcad
quartora of tho steel trust on the top
floor of the Empire building, Ko. J7
Broadway. Cramped and uncomforta
ble quarlors for the proceedings here
tofore have, been used by the govern
ment. Judge Gary, learning of this,
tendered tho use of a capacious and
well-lighted room on the twentieth floor
of tho home of tho huge trust.
A delicate touch wns made by .ludge
Dickinson today on the personal re
lations between former President Corey
and Judge Gar3', obviously with tho
view- of discrediting tho rumors thut
oroy is taking advantage of his op
portune aB a government witness to
'"'get even1' with Gary for supplant
ing him as president of tho corpora
tiou with James A. Farrcll. The lat
ter has been known in the parlance
of steel trust factionalism as a "Gary
man," while Corey was known as a
' Carnegie man."
Corey Opposes Suit.
Instead of responding to the govern
ment lawyer's effort, however, Corey
promptly declared that he was wholly
out of sympathy with tho suit arid
that at least a quarter of his personal
fortune still was invested in steel trust
"I am opposed to the whole- purpose of
tho government's suit, declared Coroy
quickly in response to the lawyor'a qucs
1 lion if he looked favorably upon the tic
i tlon.
I'nder close questioning. Corey admit
ted that the trust could mako steel rails
cheaper than any other concern In the
' country. Ho denied that he had ever
3ald there had been at any time an In
ternational understanding- anions' steel
manufacturers to keep prices up or In
any other manner to affect the world's
steel market. He osscrted that tho mann-
j facturlng- costs of the Carnegie Steel
( company had been reduced since It had
hecomo a part of the Mon?an-Gnry com-
H' nine.
Thlo cloned the three-days' examination
of Corey and he Indulged In a loud high of
T.lef when the government counsel an
nounced that he was excused, subject
lo recall should developments mnko hlo
reappearance as a witness advisable.
a C. A. Severance of Steel counsel put n
B i few unimportant questions to him. After
, figuring for several minutes before
answering ISIr. Severance's question as to
tho approximate cohI of a modern ateel
n.ill of sufficient t-iipaclly to economically
manufa'-itirc rullp, the witness replied
that tt would be between $10,000,000 and
1 ?1 2,000,000.

been at the head of .several large con
cerns that were, absorbed by the com

as to the existence and operation of
rail pool8 prior to the formation of the
trust. He said that one such pool, which
included nearly every hlg steel plant In
the country, had been In exlHtence from
1SS7 to 1901. and that it went to pjeccs
Just before the organization of tho steel
tru.it because of the discovery that there

Au important change in the method
of assessing mincB is made by tho bill
in the provision that the amounts ex
pended for development work on mines
shall not bo deducted from tho not
proceeds of mines for the purposes of
assessment as is the present custom.
The commissioner hold to the heliet
that development work on mining
property is in the nature of an invest
ment father thau an expenso.
Several changes iu the clerical meth
ods of the offices of the state hoard oi4
equalization and tho various eouatj"
assessors are proposed in ordor to rc
duco cxneuse and to make tho work
more efficient.
Seeks for Brevity.
Jf the bill passes in its present
form real estate will be described by
lax numbers instead of b" subdivis
ions, courses, distances, metes and
bounds as at present. It is held that
the present method of doscribinK- real
estate is too long, too technical, too
confusing, aud too costly.
Under the new bill assessors aro re
quired to complete the assessment by
the second Monday in April instead
of the first Monday in May, as at
Tax paj-ors' statements must be re
turned within a time noi more than
twenty days from the time they are
sent out by the assessor. The new
measure abolishes fines and Imprison
ment or non-payment of taxes and In
stead adds additional taxation penalties.
The punishment provldod by the present
law is held to bo too drastic and thore
Is no record of It ever having been in
voked. Several sources of revenuo have been
discovered by the board of commissioners
from which the state has hitherto re
ceived no revenue and In the bill the
commissioners provide for the assessment
of these sources.
Revenue on Interest.
Taxes on Interest on state lands is as
sessed and provision made that no patent
ahall be granted to any purchaser of atato
lands until the taxes hove been paid.
Hitherto the state has received no
revenue from taxation of water rights,
Irrigation works and shares In canals and
Irrigation companies. The new bill pro
poses that these water and Irrigation
systems be assessed at a fair rate.
Sweeping changes in the methods of
assessing the property of public utility
corporations such as railways, street rail
ways, telephone and telegraph systems,
light and heating companies, power com
panies, are provided by the new measure-
At present tho assessment Is based
on the physical and franchise valua
tions. The new bill provides for the assess
ment of public utilities on a fair cash
value. To determine this valuation the
state board of equalization is required to
ascertain the actual value of the tangible
property, the market value of stocks and
bonds plus the floating Indebtedness; the
dividends paid and tho amounts added to
the surplus, reserve and sinking funds,
the net earnings and the gross earn
ings. Stock Assessments.
The methods of making the assessmont
on transient stock is changed. The as
sessment Is to be made by the state
board of equalization and to bo distrib
uted among the counties through which
the stock graze Vlockmaatcrs afe re
quired to keep tho state board of equal
ization Informed as to the movements of
flocks and tho time each flock spends in
a county. The revenue derived from tho
assessment of tho transient stock ie then
divided among the various counties in
proportion to tlie time tho slock was In
each county.
Tho affidavit required from assessors
on assessmont rolls is dispensed with,
the commissioners holding that the oathi
of office makes the affidavit unneccs- j
aary. The penalty for failure to report j
the assessment rolls on time Is changed
from $1000 to three months' salary of the
assessor, the commissioners holding that
In some Instances the penalty in greater
than the salary of the assessors for the
year and is therefore excessive.
Tax Lien Permanent.
Taxes aro made a. permanent lien i
against property In order that complica
tions may not arise by a prior claim or
mortgage. Tax titles arc dispensed with
and the property secured under fore
closure proceedings 3lmllnr to othor pro
ceedings of foreclosure on real estate
The limn for redemption is reduced from
four to three years, but the changy In
reality Is slight, for at the expiration of
three years notice of foreclosure pro
ceedings Is Hied and the foreclosure does
not take place for at least six months,
during which tlmo the property may bo
Under tho new law taxes become de
linquent on the Saturday prior to tho
first Monday In December Instead of on
November 15 at; at present. The change
means an extension of two weeks. On
tho day the taxes become delinquent the
county treasurer Irs directed to close his
office all day and to correct the de
linquent list. The delinquent tax list
Is to be published In a paper of general
circulation In the county which bids the
lowest. The enlo of delinquent property
Is changed from the third lo tho fourth
Monday In December.
The board of equalization is reduced
to three members and the salaries in
creased to 53800 per yoar.
The other bills relate largely to minor
changes in tho laws rocommended to
mako the administration of the main
rovonue law more nuccessful.
Adds to Revenue.
One of those bills changes the in
heritance tax exemptions in ordor to
provide added revenue for tho state. The
present Inheritance tax lawn exempts
$10,000 of the properly of an estate. Tho
proposed amendment reduces tho ex
emption to 35000 for direct heirs and to
51000 for collateral heirs. Tho bpi also
provides that all transfer by gift or
grant for a nominal consideration, or
held In trust or In a holding corporation
mode within five years of death, ahall bo
doomed to have been made In anticipa
tion of death and shall be taxed accord
ingly. Another new source of revenuo dlncov
crcd by the tax commissioner is on
mortgage brokers. At present they pay
little or no lax to the 8lat. One of the
new revenue bills provides that they
shall pay a graduated license tax de
pendent upon tho amount of loans made
on real estate within the state.
Street railways, electric light, tele
graph and telephone corporations and
other public utllltleK using tho public
highways aro required by one of the bills
to pay their proportion of the special
taxes levied for the Improvement of the
highways which they occupy.
The power to lovy poll taxes for any
purpose whatever la taken away from
county and road commissioners.
New Source Found.
A license of ?250 per year Is levied, by
one of thj blllB against corporations en
gaged In collecting and distributing in
formation relating to tho financial stand
ing of merchants doing business within
the state. Theio corporations at pres
ent pay no tax or licence.
In order that the assessors and the
state board of equalization may know the
exact value of property a bill la drawn
to provide for the filing of affidavits
with deedo and mortgages with the coun
ty recorder, stating that the considera
tion named In the lnstrmmenl Is the
true consideration, If such bo the case,
and If not, then stating what the true

to appoint deputy aesessoro In each
county who Hhall lo the county aBflnsa
ors. This bill Is In conflict with omo
of the othor measures and if It worn
passed It would involve some amend
ments in other measure.
Change in Terms.
Ono of the bills Increases the salaries
of the county assessors of tho various
counties to equal that of the county
clerks of tho different counties. Another
extends tho terms of the present county
assessors to the first Monday of July,
1015, and provides that assessors elected
In 1PM and thereafter Khali ocrvc for
four years Instead of two, the terms to
end In July instcud of January The
terms of tho present county treasurers
are extended to March, 1015. and the
torma of the treasurers aro made to ex
pire biennially in March Instead of in
January, as at present. The reason for
the change in the dato of the expiration
of the terms of the treasurers and as
sessors Is necessitated by the fact that
at present their terms expire Just at tho
busiest tlmo of the yoar," when a change
often involves confusion In the hand
ling of the business.
To Helpv Mining Concorns.
Mining corporations aro authorized to
acquire by purchase or otherwise the
capital stock of other mining companies
and are permitted to exchange their capi
tal stock for stock or property of other
mining corporations by a bill Introduced
In tho senate yesterday by Bcnner X.
Smith of Salt Lake. The bill extends
these powers both to foreign and domes
tic mining corporations, providing that
these powers do not contlict with the
articles of Incorporation of tho corpora
tions. To Clear Titles.
To clear the title of lands claimed by
a citizen of the stale and also by the
state, a bill was Introduced In the senate
yestordav by ISenncr X. Smith of Salt
Lake giving the citizen tho right to force
tho stato to enter Into litigation that
will clear the title. Any citizen claiming
title to lands to which ,the state also
claims title may make a demand in writ
ing upon the attorney gcnoral that he
bring action on behalf of the stato to
determine tho tllle to tho lands. Should
the attorney general fall to bring this
action the citizen la empowered to bring
action to clear the title.
Contest Postponed.
The expected contest over the appro
priation In tho urgency appropriation bill
for ihe maintenance of the state univer
sity and the Agricultural college did not
come up yesterday. On motion of Sena
tor W. N. Williams, author of the bill,
the measure was made a. special order
for next Friday afternoon.
Resolution Uocallcd.
The resolution presented by Senator
D. O. Hideout ratifying the proposed
umondmcnt lo tho federal constitution
providing for tho election of United
States senators by popular vote was re
turned to the committee on federal re
lations and state affairs yesterday at the
request of the author of the resolution.
The committee had previously recom
mended the passage of tho resolution,
but the author wished to make some
minor amendments in the resolution and
for that reason asked that It be sent
back to the committee.
Held For Consultation.
Senator D. O. Rldeout of Salt Lake
Is withholding the Introduction of his
employers' liability bill for further con
sultation with persons interested In the
measure Ho will probably make several
changes in tho measure before Intro
ducing It later in the week. Senator
Hideout liaa decided to reduce the salaries
provided originally for the members i ot
the industrial accident board from 53500
to S1000 per annum and of the secretary
from 52500 to 31300.

Fierce Denunciation.
Mrs. Pankhurst'o" denunciation of the
government was fiery and blttor.
"The farce of the roform bill Is played
out," she aald. "Either thoao whp framed
the bill were ignorant of parliamentary
proccduro and they worn unfit to occupy
positions of responsibility, or they were
scoundrels of the worst sort. It has been
a mock battle, all arranged. Mr, Har
court and Mr. Lloyd-Gcorge were aecn
going arni-ln-arm Into a music hall Sat
urday. Can you Imagine them saying;
" 'Well, now that wo have disposed of
the women, let us forget about It and
go and seo tho cinematograph.' "
The women had lost their touohlng
faith In politicians and were likely to
lose their faith In the average man, she
continued, and, short of taking Uvea, tho
suffragettes were warranted In using all
the mothods employed In times of war.
Favors Smashing Heads.
Mrs. Depard, at another mooting, said:
p "Wo ..aro up against man-made law.
We are going to Bhow that ln.vr cannot
and shall not bind women, by breaking
the laws in every posslblo way. I hope
there will bo many passlvo resistors. I
hope a great many will do other things.
All who arc In tho front of the move
ment do not earo In the least what hap
pons to thein3elvc3.''
Mrs. Drummond, president of the Wom
en's Social and Political union, has writ
ten lo Chancellor Lloyd-George asking
him to receivo another doputalion to
morrow. One of tho suffragette demands
is that Mr. .Lloyd-Gcorge and Sir Edward
Grey, who supported tho cause of
suffrage, should resign office. j
The government appears to have de
cided to drop tho question of franoblsc
reform .altogether for the present ses
sion. Harold Trevor Baker's rural vot
ing bill, which was cxpootcd to replace
tho rranchlso bill, requires too extensive
amendment, according to tho govern
ment view, to be undertaken in the short
tlmo remaining In the present session.
Hence the whole qucslion will bo post
poned until the session beginning prob
ably March G, when friends of women's
suffrage will be Invited by the govern
ment to frame a bill In such a manner
as to secure t'he support of all sections.

LONDON. Jan. 27. The fury of the
suffragettes tonight over the death oC
the franchise bill knows no bounds.
Within a fow minutes of Premier As
qulth's announcement mado to an ex
cited houHO of commons that tho meas
ure would bo withdrawn owing to the
amendment proposing woman suffrage,
constituting a new bill, Mrs. Pankhurst
rounded up her most prominent sup

worth breaking is boarded up. As soon
aa tho word went around that the bill
had been killed, carpenters were hur

sands of hammers eloquently told tho
story of tho panic that had seized Lon
don. Tho suffragists convened meetings

In every woman's mouth. Tn Trafalgar

During a struggle Mrs. Dcspard was

Sylvia got away In the excitement, but

after an exciting struggle. Another wo
man, who gave her name as Lady Crcwc
was arrested In tho West End for dis

understood that the suffragettes planned
that women who should be arrested to

ministers' wives.
Ac a result of the meetings tonight the
suffragists promise a new outbreak that

priest or partisan men were strictly
barred. At each entrance were a dozen
young stalwarts, many of whom re
sembled the malo sex In physique, and
when It came to rough-housing, tho re

Writer Collapses.
Staggering, ho collapsed into tho arms
of a girl whose pretty face, crowned
with golden hair, revived him. Just then
the strains of the beautiful lovo song
from Carmen was wafted through an
open door and that did the work.
"My poor man," said the girl with the i
golden hair, "what has happened?"
"I wanted -to tee Miss Emersion, that's '
all." replied the reporter.
"All right, wait hero; I'll fetch her, -said
the young woman, and a moment
later tho American girl appeared.
"It was real nice of you to bravo so
much to sec me. especially as I cannot
tell you much," r-hc said. "I've been
hero about thrt:e months and am doing
ull I can to help tho cause forward. At
first I spent my tlmo In the easl end of
London, explaining to the- poorer wumvn
what the vote meant for thorn. Luttt-rly
I have hcen engaged at headquarters
with Mrs. Pankhur.Ml In organization
Just then tho words, "Aro wc
through?" camo from an impassioned
speaker, and tho voices of a thousand
women Were hoard replying, "No!"
At this Miss Emerson rushed back Into
the hall Just as tho impassioned voice
was again heard:
"We will cause thu houso of commons
lo run this day."
Pnndcmonium broke looso, and tho re
porter, deeming discretion the hotter
part of valor, disappeared Into the cold
I night air.

more, which finally terminated in sueh
a weakened and painful condition that
I waa confined to my bod a jrrcat part
of the timo and unablo to perform my
ordinary houspliold duties. Suffered
with severe pains in my head, continu
ous pains in my back and shoulders,
and unable to oat tho lightest food.
Treated with a local physician without
renoivinjj any beneficial results, or no
ticing any improvement. Was advised
by a friend to take Dr. Itilmor's
Swamp-Boot and after giving it a fair
trial I found my health was restored
and can cheerfully and sincoroly recom
mend Swamp-Boot to any ono sufforiug
with kidney trouble, as I have tho full

a fair trial. I shall be, very glad if

Seventy-five per cent of the refugoes
aro women and children. Worn out by
their hardships, bereavements, exposure
and starvation, many have died In the
last two months and unlefiB those dis
tressed pooplo can bo helped through this
winter the mortality among them will be
appalling. Large sums must be ob
tained immediately from "Europe and
America If these pcoplo are not to starve.
When the war first broko out hundreds
of thousands of the Moulcrn Inhabitants
of Macedonia and Thrace, fearing equally
their own and the enemy's armlos, fled,
abadonlng their homes and all that could
not be carried with thorn. They wero
transported as faiU as possible into
Asia Minor and scattered among the vil
lages. Heartrending Situation.
Now that the snows of winter have
come, their condition Is heartrending.
nic Anatolian peasants are little bettor
off than they arc and tho Ottoman gov
ernment Is altogether lacking In funds
and .can do nothing.
The P.cd Cross organizations working
in Turkey have co-operated In forming
an effective organisation and the valu
able experience of American missionaries
in the Interior has been enlisted.
Tho relief work Is conducted in prin
ciple, first, of relieving Immediate neces
Blties, and. second, of assisting the refu
gees to self-support at tho earliest pos
slblo moment; but the resources of these
societies have been taxed so severely
that their funds will be exhausted before
the middle of Fobruary. It la hoped that
this appeal will reach all parts of tho
LTnlted States and that the churchee,
charitable organizations and nowspapers
will co-opcrato with tho Red Crosa so
ciety in reliovlng aa great suffering and
as crying and immediate need as our
century has known.
Will Give Relief.
WASHINGTON. Jan. :'7. Stirred by
the appeal of the Constantinople chapter
of the American Red Crosa society in
behalf of the suffering non-combatants
of the Balkan war, officers of tho organ
ization hero said tonight that a meet
ing of the executive committee would bo
held tomorrow, when It would be deter
mined if anothor appeal would ho made to
the American people for additional funds
to relievo the reported distress. Those
officers declared thai the aoclely would
cable to tho Constantinople chapter any
funds that may be recch'cd for tho pur
pose. The society, it was stated, ap
preciated the genoroua contributions that
already had been mado by tho American
people in behalf of the Balkan war suf
ferers. Thoro now Is on hand onlv
$1000 of tho money contributed for the
purpose. About. $2000 for the socletv'a
fund already has been used for the Bal-kans.
