Witness Is Led Into General Discus
sion on Tariff on Steel—Think«
$28 a Ton Too Low.
New York.—Charles M. Schwab,
now a competitor of the United States
Steel Corporation, Saturday revealed
that corporation before the house com
mittee of inquiry as a child of his
own brain, reared by J. Pierpont Mor
Mr. Schwab pictured the steel cor
poration as a legal organization not
formed to curtail output, restrict com
petition or maintain prices, but to
develop the steel industry of America.
Aside from reciting the inside history
of the origin of the steel corporation,
he gave the committee much informa
tion relating to traffic mergers, ore
properties and steel manufactures.
The witness denied that the recent
Brussels conference of steel manu
facturers of the world, from which
he returned recently, had anything to
do with fixing prices.
"I want to assure you," he said,
"that at no time was the question of
prices of division of business territory
even mentioned. We were there to
tell the exact truth."
Representative Sterling of Illinois
led Mr. Schwab into a general dis
cussion of the tariff on steel, particu
larly as to the relations of the busi
ness in this country and Germany.
"The real purpose of the tariff on
steel," Mr. Sterling suggested, "is to
protect you in the home market. You
say you can mannfacture rails as
cheaply as Germany and you still have
the advantage in that they must trans
port to our market?"
"Yes, but Germany can now trans
port to our Pacific coast for less than
we can ship from Pittsburg te the
coast," said Mr. Schwab.
"I do not want to argue the tariff,"
he said, "but I can not for the life of
me see any disadvantage to America
from liberal protection. It seems to
me to be a mistake to have the tariff
po low that a foreign country can
even reach our Pacific coast. That
s not the practice of Germany, France,
Austria or Italy or of any foreign coun
try except England."
"You could make rails for less than
$28 a ton and still make some profit,
couldn't you?" Mr. Beall inquired.
"Oh, yes," was Mr. Schwab's reply,
"but I think $28 a ton is too low. As
a matter of fact, since I have been
president of the Bethlehem Steel com
pany we have never sold rails for less
than $30. We have sold them as
high as $55 a ton."
Mr. Schwab was a willing witness
on all points but one.
When Mr. Beall asked him concern
ing an option given before the steel
corporation combine by Andrew Car
negie on his steel plants to Judge W.
H. Moore and H. C. Frick—a deal
never consummated, to the financial
loss of Mr. Moore and Mr. Frick
Mr. Schwab said the option was se
cured for some one whose name never
had been mentioned.
"Who was it?" asked Mr. Beall.
"I prefer not to say."
"Was it someone now engaged
the steel business?"
"Nothing can induce me to say
more," Mr. Schwab answered. "It
was a purely personal and private mat
ter," he added.

the value of farm buildings of 10Ü per
cent. They show an increase of 39 per
cent, in improved acreage. These lig
ures also show that Vexas farmers
own machinery and implements to
the extent of 88 per cent more than
they owned ten years ago.
The principal rates of increase in
Texas in 1910, as. against 1900, among
the items for which percentages, are

implements and machinery, 88 per
cent; in the total improved farm
acreage, 39 per cent; and in the whole
number of farms, 18 per cent.
The decreases during the decade,
among the items for which percent
ages are given, occurred in the aver
age acres per farm, 27 per cent; and
in the total farm acreage, 13 per cent.
The statement shows in detail that
the number of farms reported in 19ft)
was 416,377, as compared with 352,190
in 1900, an increase of 64,187, or 18

per cent.
The total value of all farm build

200,000, as against $100,223,000 in 1900,
an increase of $108,977,000, or 109 per

alone constituted 80 per cent of the
total value of land and buildings, as

The reported value of farm imple
ments and machinery was $56,533,000
in 1310, as against $30,126,000 in 1900,
a gain of $26,407,000, or 88 per cent.
The total acreage reported in 1910
was 109,226,000 in 1900, as compared

The average acres per farm report
ed in 1910 were 262, as against 357 in

Bride Had but Exercised Recognized
Privilege That Is Universally
A young couple had been courting
for several years and the young man
seemed to be in no hurry to marry.
Finally, one day, he said:
"Sal, I canna marry thee."
"How's that?" asked she.
'Tve changed my mind," he said.
"Well, I'll tell thee what we'll do,"
said she. "If folks know that it's
thee as has given be up I shanna
be able to get another chap; but if
they think I've given thee up I can
get all I want. So we'll have banns
published and when the wedding day
comes the parson will say to thee:
'Wilt thou have this man to be thy
wedded husband?" I shall say: 'I
winna.' "
The day came, and when the minis
ter asked the important question the
man answered: "I will."
Then the parson said to the woman:
"Wilt thou have this man to be thy
wedded husband?" and she said:
"I will."
"Why," said the young man furious
ly, "you said you would say 'I win
na.' "
"I know that," said the young
woman, "but I've changed my mind
since."—Mack'6'?**tional Monthly.

Ended Cat's Sojourn.
Felix Smith of Easton, Pa., bought
a cat the other day. He paid $5 for
her. Why did Felix pay five bucks
for the cat? Answer—Because she
was guaranteed to be a good ratter.
Did Felix have rats? We should say
he did—the house was full of 'em!
And the cat cleaned 'em out! No;,
that's the curious part of it. After the
cat had been on the job a week the
rats were as plentiful as ever. Felix
wouldn't understand it until one even
ing he concealed himself in the base
ment to watch the cat. About 9 p.
m., as the cat sat with her eye on a
rat hole, Felix says that rat after
rat came out of the hole, walked up
to the old cat, kissed her good-night
and then returned to the hole. After
that Felix kicked the cat out of the
house.—Boston Post.
