Judge Gary Defends, Tennessee Coal and Iron Company Deal NEW YORK, June 13. "If the United States Steel corporation paid $35,000,000 for tne Tennessee Coal and Iron company and $14,000,000 more to put It on Its feet, not because It wanted tHe property, but In order to fcave tho firm of Moore & Schley and other banking concerns hold ing Tennessee Coal and Iron stock from ruin In the panic of 1907, would It not haVe been better for the corporation to lpan Moore & Schley JIO.000,000' or 115,000.000, or give It to them outright?" This In sub stance was the question Jacob M. Dick inson, attorney for tho government In the dissolution suit against tho' corporation askel its chairman, Judgo Elbert H. Gary, today. Judge Gary had testified on direct ex amination that he did not believe at the time the company was acquired that Its stock was worth more than $50 a share, and that the money spent In Its acquisi tion and rehabilitation could have brought far greater profits if put into other plants. The government maintains that the corporation took advantage of the panicky conditions of 1907 to acquire the company to suppress a competitor. 'I will say 'no,' " was Judge Gary's answer. "We In the finance commltteo had to give an account to. the 'stock holders, and even to relieve such a situa tion I doubt if the stockholders would have required such action. We had to do business so as to work out of that thing and get a return on the investment And I believe we did the best .and, most pru dent thing under the circumstances."

OUTLINES RULES FOR FIGHTING Speaker Propones No Battles lie Al lowed Beyond the Three-Mile Limit from Land Navy Mat ter of Appearance. David Starr Jordan, first 'president and now chancellor of Leland Stanford uni versity, enroute to Kuropc, whero ho will speak before Tho Haguo and other peace conferences, told tho Omaha Commercial club Friday noon how war Is practically an Impossibility between tho great na tions of tho earth, and how it can bo en tirely eliminated. He said ho would not take up the moral side of the world peace question, as It has been discussed very often and most persons are familiar with It, and before a body of business men he would talk principally on tho financial side of war fare. To make war the last resort among nations Instead of tho first as it Is now, Is the meaning of the present world peace plans, he said. Tho best thing Roosevelt over Baid, ho declared, was that the na tions of tho earth should act like gentle men. And gentlemen do not fight over disagreements, tho speaker added. "They submit them to law, Just as one would not knock an editor down for say ing 'he was a drunkard, but would take the question to Marquette, Mich., for a court to settle" Wonld Snbmlt It to Lnvr. , Dr. Jordan's peace plan Is to- submit .ll international disagreements to law. Ho said ho bellved tho peace plans of Mr. Bryan and Mr. Wilson, if accomplished, would provo the greatest step toward In ternational peace that has ever been taken. "I have voted against Mr. Bryan threo tlmM find reirrettcd It each time," he Lsald. "but now I am with him In the plan to form an Investigating committee representing the nations. By the time a question In dispute Is investigated and the newspapers aro given tlmo to get It off the front page, tho disputing nations will have forgotten about It." "A navy." sajd J)r, Jordap, "Is merely a matter of appearance, Just as I would wear a fancy coat when I go out Into society that calls fojvfanoy coats. Wc fioufdTnroro" hutcKTf JsWV"ar?,bxf;j)oy.c.ott,' than we could by getting out our navies..". .Som.e of his remarks that brought ap proval w,re: "There la nothing to tne peace of dreads." "Wo need the peace of law where the smallest nation will be as fairly treated as the largest." "Whero nobody Is loaded nobody ex plodes." "We don't gain anything morally, physically or financially by war. "The nations of the world have lost half their virility through tho loss of good breeding stock on the battlefield.' "We think murder is a great and glorious thing when done on a large scale. "Ve are Just as much in danger of war with Abyslnnia.a-s of Germany pr Japan." Some of the rules which would lead to world peace, Dr. Jordon said were: Allow no fighting on tho sea beyond .the threo mile limit from land; stop the collecting of bad debts for the Interests by sending out battleships until the debts have been adjudicated by law; the estab lishment o- an international investigating committee.
