The ex-president had been requested to appear to tell of the part he had taken in the historic deal by means of which the steel corporation acquired possession of the immense rich ore deposits owned by the Southern com pany, and his testimony took the form of a written statement, in which he set forth in detail every step taken by him in sanctioning that transaction, together with his reasons for acting as he did. He did not advise the transaction, he said, but he did not forbid it, be cause he believed it imperatively necessary that something should be done to check the panic which was beginning to spread throughout the country. That the action he took ac complished just what it was intended to accomplish, was a complete justifi cation for every move he made, he contended. Noted American Painter Dead.
