Washington, Sept. 1. Threats that "some of the resent trade connec tions between the United States and England that have existed for a cen tury" will be "absolutely terminated" unless the Fordney permanent tariff bill Is changed were voiced before the senate finance committee by a deputa tion of British steel manufacturers. The action of the committee in per mitting business men from across the Atlantic to testify in opposition to a bill being framed by congress was taken at the request of the State de partment. Arthur Balfour of the steel firm of A. Balfour & Co., spoke in behalf of the deputation. The other members were S. J. Robinson, Peter MacGregor and J. G. Ward, representing the Shef field (England) Chamber of Com merce. The duties imposed on Sheffield cutlery under the house tariff bill would drive many British cutlery con cerns out of business, Mr. Balfour told the finance committee. He strongly opposed the American valuation sys tem worked out by the house and re cently approved by the finance com mittee. "The peace of the world depends upon you and upon us," said Mr. Bal four. "We do not want to do any thing and we trust that you do not want to do anything to disturb or dis rupt or destroy the harmony that has existed up to this time between you and us. Let us live, let us work, and let us pay to American business what we owe you and the only way we can pay you is in trade, is in goods." Mr. Balfour told the finance commit tee that the British contemplated no retaliatory tariff. "We do not and have never contemplated throat-cut ting," he said.
