.Xoxx York, Aug. 5. The resignation
of Charles M. Schwab as president of
the United States Steel Corporation
xxas tendered and accepted nt a meet
ing of the directors yesterday. Will
iam 11. Corey xxas unanimously elect
ed his successor.
Mr. Schxxab's resignation caused no
surpilse in financial elides, xxhere it
had for some time been foreshadow
ed. The new piesident xxns for jears
one of Audi exx Carnegie's ablest lieu
tenants and is now piesident ot the
Caincgie Steel Co., one of the sub
siding concci ns of the United States
Steel Corporation. It is scarcely
inoie fhiin a month ago Hint Mr.
Co icy xxns made assistant to the
piesident (Mr. Schwab) because of
the latter's continued ill health.
Mr. Schwab attended Tucsdnj's
meeting of the diicctorc, coming to
toxxn, it xxas said, for that especial
pin pose. He appeared to be in good
health and spiiils and seemed lather
glad to be rcliexcd of the duties Im
posed on the chief exeeutixe of the
"billion dollar corporation." Uefoie
and after the meeting Mr. Schxxab
confcried with J. P. Morgan.
Immediately after the election of
his successor Mr. Schxxab met the
pi ess repiesentatixes, to whom he
made this informal statement:
"I want to saj that 1 think 1 haxe
hern tientcd vetj' unfairly bj- the
nexxspapers in regaid to the reasons
for inj' retirement. A number of
reason1-. including this American
shipbuilding matter, liaxe been gixen
for it, but none of them is true. As
a matter of tact the shiplhiildiug
question has nexcr been n subject of
discussion betxxeen injself and the
"On my return fiom Europe six
months ago I tried to get Mr. Mor
gan and the dhectors to accept my
resignation, but xxas unable to do so.
That docs not look as if 1 had been
foiccd out. Later I appealed to Mr.
Friek and through him haxe finally
succeeded in inducing the directors to
accept my resignation. I am as deep
Ij interested in the United States
Steel Corporation as exer. 1 am still
the largest stockholder and remain
as diiector and member of the exeeu
tixe committee. Mj retirement is on
nceount of ill health nervousness. I
haxe been in bad health for six
months or more."
J. P. Morgan, departing from his
nsunl custom, made a statement as
folloxxs after the meeting of the steel
"I deeplj' regret that the condition
of Mr. Schwab's health renders it im
possible for him to continue at the
head of the steel corporation. His
loxaltv to the interests inti listed to
him cannot be doubted, and fiom the
enrlj dajs of the inception of the
corporation he gaxe to its formation,
unification and development his un
equalled poxxers as an expeit in the
manufacture of steel.
"I consider that in Mr. Corey the
directors haxe seemed an ciuinciitlj
competent successor to Mr. Schxxab
and 1 am confident that the futuie
xxill prove this to be the case. Jn
fact 1 think that todaj- the steel com
pan j' in all its branches is intrm
sicullj' in a stronger and better posi
tion than it has exer been."
The nexx piesident has entered
upon his duties and with his election
the steel corporation has iiitiiigtu.it

Ills election and the assumption of
his holy office were marked bj- a
striking demonstration and impres

'Cardinal Clluseppe Sarto was born
nt Iticsc, province of Venice, June 2,
1&35. lie was verj' learned in the ec

and legulurs, sacred lites, indul

cd great popularity in his diocese.
He is honoied bj- nil for his pitilty,
for the stiiet uprightness of his life
and for liberal ideas. He is a modest
and agreeable man, highly cultivated,

and robust in spite of his OS years,

but divided Ida time in studj- and
Although most faithful to the Holv
See he was presented to the king and

Pius X xxas onlj 23 when he was
consecrated a priest at Castel France,
acting afterwards for nine jears as
coadjutor to the parish priest of
Tombolo, piovinee of Pndua, a small
village of 2,950 people, who were the
first to appreciate his virtues. His
kindness was untiring. He sought to
fill their wants and never a murmur
was heard when he was called in the
middle of a winter night to a death-'

In 1S75 he was elected chancellor of
the bishopiic of Trex-iso, then spir
itual director of that scmlniiiy, judge
of the eelesinstical tribunal and filial
ly vicar general.
Pope Leo, who had liighlj nppie

a cardinal and appointed patriarch
of Venice. He there distinguished
himself ns a thorough reformer, sup
pressing all abuses, rcstoiing the
dignitj of the elergj- and the earnest

rexixnl of a Gregorian chant in the
beautiful churches overlooking the
lagoons, and to him is due the stiiet
return to liturgic l tiles.

He has xerj modest tastes, having
retained almost the same habits as

Venice xxas unanimous. After Mon-daj-'s
ballots it was a foregone con

secure the necessary two-thirds,

One of the1 cardinals said .last night
that he believed Pius X would folloxv

This xoices Hie general feeling heie,
