John (!. Johnson of rhiladclphla summed up for the de fense in a two-hour speech that held the close attention of 'h crowded court room and Jacob M. Dickinson, chief counsel for Ihe government, be gan his iirRiinient in rebuttal. Me hopes to conclude by tomorrow cv"'. iiig. JniiMTfecl Stiitcmcnts. Mr. Johnson opened with the gen i ral statement that the weight of the evidence in the suit was all against the government; that the things com plained of rested upon imperfet statements and that when the govern ment saw that its allegations had not betn substantiated by the ev idence it should have withdrawn the action. Si one had been harmed by 111., organi zation of the steel corporation, he said, so far as the record showed, nor had any one, consumer or competitor, been unfairly dealt with hy the parent company or any of its subsidiaries. In his peroration .Mr. Johnson said the court Is asked to cut up the great or ganization into "ml"iable frag ments." He predicted another war after the present Kuropeau conflict is over, a war in which Oermany wl 1 battle fur the commerce of tip- world and in which war the steel companies in the United Statea will be as pig mies if Ihe I'nited States Steel cor poration Is disintegrated by the courts. Dii Mucin's Reply. Mr. Dickinson, before proceeding to the issues ill the case, said there neer was a great corporation brought into court for some violation of the law that did not hide Its head in the claim that to strike it down would be detrimental to the best Interests of the public, lie disagreed with Mr. Johnson that the government had not substantiated its case and proceeded to point out what he declared to be conclusive proofs of instances of the violation of the anti-trust law. With Infinite detail he produced testimony nf witnesses in the case tending to show that by the merging of compet itive companies the steel corporation had unduly restrained trade and com petition. In reply to a o,uestion of the court, Mr. Dickinson Raid that if the Bteel cotporatlon had done noth ing unlawful after the organization the government would have still prayed for the dissolution of the cor poration on the ground that its for mation was illegal. Taking up the charge that the steel corporation sold products cheaper in foreign markets than in the domestic trade, Mr. Dickinson said the Ameri can consumer should have been given the .advantage of the lower prices. Failure of the corporation to do so, he continued, was evidence that it conspired to maintain excessive prices. He unid that the government would later show that the steel corporation had much more than 50.1 per cent of the iron and steel business of the country and that the remaining 49. per cent not embraced in the stel corporation, was not as formidable as counsel for the defendant would have the court believe.
