New York, May 6.—The entire inter
est of Andrew Carnegie in the Carnegie
Steel Company has been purchased by the
co partners in the business, with H. C.
Fricke at their head. The exact ngure
which represents the purchase price could
not be learned. It is known, however,
that the price was over $150,000,000 and
was entirely satisfactory to Mr. Car
negie. It is understood that one of ttie
stipulations of the sale was that the new
company shall retain the name of the pres
The new company includes not only all
tne Carnegie steel plants but also the
H. C. Fricke Coke Company, with its 40,
000 acres of coal land in the Conne'lsvil e
district; the Oliver Mining Company, wi.h
its large ore interests in the Lake Su
perior district: the Pittsburg, Bessemer
ami Lake Erie railroad; the Union rail
road, which connects at Homestead witli
all the trunk lines east and west, and
all the interests in several hundreds of
gas lines. It is intended to increase the
output of all the various departments of
the joint company so that the present
famine in the steel market may be re
lieved and the continued export demand
Will Let In the Public.
The former co partners of Mr. C .rneg e,
32 in all, purpose to retain the interests
which they held individually, as mem
bers of the original Carnegie Steel Com
pany, and to otter for sale to the public
baies which they have acquired from Mr.
Carnegie. This intention, in the event of
the purchase from Mr. Curiug e, had been
intimated for some time and long before
the sale was effected, an enormous de
mand for theee shares had come from al
most every part of the country.
It is said that the members of the new
company expect a material increase of
their property—some saying that the
property will double in value within the
next five years. They say that evidences
have recently multiplied that there will be
an enormous demand f r s e. 1 in the con
struction of all kinds of buildings and
that of necessity the value of their hold
ings will increase greatly.
