that phase of the tariff has been hotly
debated. In this regard. Governor Wilson
said. "Free raw rpateria! would lower the

At about the time this declaration was
made h Governor Wilson the press was
filled with statements by the shoe manu-

STEEL TRU TS STORY
TOLD BY CARNEGIE
(Continued From Iise One )
few years ago that the Sherman law
was passed so long ago as 18S0. It c
tainly was not much heard of until loiv
Disposition of property.
Asked about the option valuation of
$320000000 and the f nal disposition ot
the property to the s'.eel corporation In
101 for a muct) larger sum. Carnegie re-
lated the history of l is retirement from
the steel business. 11 told how Charles
M. Kcliwab then president of the com-
pany had come to h:m with a message
from J. IMerpont Mo-gan asking him if
he desired to letire from business and
how much he wanted for his properties.
"I told Mr. Hcliwal that It would de-
pend entirely upon n:y partners i was
ready to go. Alread: I had become en-
gaged In arduous woi k. trying to dispose
of surplus wealth a id I was willing to
retire. Mr. Schwab said the partners
were willing and 'h went back to see
Morgan. When ne returned he said
Morgan wanted a figure We went over
the estimate and considered the former
option of t32O.OO0.0OC Schwab had fig-
ures to show that 8 nee that was given
about two and a hulf years before the
proper! v had grown n value about $100-
00000. He thought ve ought to add that
and I agreed with him. Mr. Morgan ac-
cepted that figure."
"But you sold for more than that to
the Steel oorporatlon ." he was asked.
"Thst Is not true" Mr. Carnagle stated
"that was our valuation and Mr. Morgan
accepted It as fair. I have since been
told I could have had JI00 000000 more
If I had asked it. Once and for all I
want to put to a stop this talk that I
was holding out for an excessive price.
We fixed a fair variation of S420.000.000
and got it. There a the truth gentle-
men and I am here to tell you the
Never Took Rebates.
"But the .Steel corporation." said Mr.
Gardner ' issued bonds worth 49S.00.-
1(0 against the Carnegie Steel company
when.it was absorbed."
"That's very surprising to me." said
Mr. Carnegie. "I never knew that this
was done and was not a party to such
a thing. '
When asked by llr. Gardner about the
statement made by Senator OUiver that
the Carnegln company received railroad
rebates Mr. Carnegie declared:
"It's astonishing how suspected an
honest corporation can be. I never re-
ceived a rebate that 1 know of in all my
Mr. Carnegie related how he had fought
the Pennsylvania railroad because of dis-
crimination In rates against him how he
In teres ted the Yanderhllte in a project to
erect a competing road and how the Van-
drbllte had "gone over to the enemy"
ending the project.
"When this fell through I went to
George Gould and told him that years ago
his father. Jay Gould had told me he
would furnish me the money to buy the
Pennsylvania railroad and would put dne
tn change of it If 1 would devote all my
time to it. I did not take the job. Then
I said to George Gould that inasmuch as
Ms father had given me that opportunity
and I offered to gtve htm the Carnegis
business If he would run Ms road into
Pittsburg and It waat my suggestion
that the Goulds went to Pittsburg with
the 'Wabash railroad."
Story of Steel Corporation.
Mr. Carnegie declared that Instead of
the Carnegie company having received re-
bates as a matter of (act he had forced
the Pennsylvania by threats to build com-
peting roads to agree to give him rates
as low as those given competitors.
When Mr. Carnegie first-took the wit-
ness stand he furnished the committee
with a statement regarding steel industry
conditions and told uf his career In the
Mr. Carnegie said he began Ills steel ca-
reer la November. lSil with the firm of
Miner 8mal! and that in 1S he bor-
rowed J1500 from the National bank of
Pittsburg to engage In partnership In
the Keystone Bridge company at Pltts-
feorg. . i
"Five or six of us." he said "were en'
gaged In this. In 18(3 we built another
mill In Pittsburg and in 1 I was one of
the organizers of the -Superior Ors Milt

ness?" Denounced Financial System.
"Oh no. 1 did not look for men who had
no experience in the Iron business. I was
one of the youngest of these men and w-e
had vcrv little capital. At different times
we would put In 120000 or $30000 each."
"What was tlie capital of your proper-
ties in the 0s?"
"My dear sir. I have no more Idea than
"I have an Idea." replied Stanley. "Was
It as much as 600.000?" v
"Oti ves; the Superior mill alone was
worth that but I do not want to guess.
;lvo me time and I will give you all the
figures. 1 have had so much -to think
alxmt for forty years and In the last
eleven years I have not engaged in the
steel business and so much has faded
from mv memory."
Mr. Carnegie denounced the hanking
system of the I'nlted States as a "dis-
grace to civilisation."
"When panics come in this country" he
said "they are due to the fact that we
have the worst banking system tn toe
world. Panics spread ruin and if the
now before congress Is passed you will
have something to prevent such panics.
In a "Transition" Stage.
Mr. Carnegie In the written statement
filed with the committee pointed out that
the steel committee's task had arisen
from the fact that the law of competition
in business has seemed recently to be
imimlrcd in certsin fields notably those
of natural oil steel and tobacco. Even
now a gigantic railway system embrac-
ing nearly one-half of the world's rail-
way mileage has been affected and sev-
eral retail companies have been tried and
convicted under the Sherman law be
"We are in a transition stage" Mr. Car-
negie said "and naturally suggestions
are numerous and diverse for effective
compliance with the Sherman act as In-
terpreted by the United States supreme
court. Thst a satisfactory measure will
finally be evolved is certain -one which
does not go further than actually neces-
sary to prevent restraint of trade and
"These two unendurable evils prevent-
ed the government and courts may well
rest from further action" ujrtll experience
dictates any necessary modifications.
There Is no cause at present for either
alarm or haste upon the part of the
courts congress or producers or consum-
ers whose Interests will become mutual
wherever freedom of trade from monop-
oly pre established. Nothing revolution-
ary 'is required."
Schwab Mechanical Genius.
Continuing the verbal story of hut life.
Mr. Carnegie said that during the war
between the States he suffered a sun-
stroke and waa ordered to spend his
summers in a cooler climate.
"I went to my native land Scotland
and there I watched the Bessemer process
of making steel. There too I met A
Mr. Dodds who had invented a patent
for hardening the face of steel. I pur-
chased the patent and brought Mr. Dodds
to Pittsburg where we built a furnace
and made the first bard aurface rails) la
Mr. Carnegie referred to ' "That great
mechanical genius Charles Schwab1 aa
the "greatest' man t ever knew in .that
Mr. Carnegie said he suggested Vt
Schwab that he test A process for mak-
ing ere In open hearth furnaces and then
"build an open hearth furnace."

Mr. Carnegie said that In the open-
hearwi mills at Homestead "the greatest
in the world." the committee would find
no "restraint of trade."
Tube Mill Planned.
Mr. Carnegie frequently pounded ths
table with his hand. .
"Why." he gald."re were going to
btpild at Conneaut. Ohio an enormous
tube mill that would have astonished the
world and outdistanced competition.
That's where Charlie Schwab comes in
again. He told me he was satisfied he
had a plan whereby we could build a
tube mlU that would save fit a ton In
the cost of manufacture over any other
tube mill In the world.
Mr. -Carnegie explained hew the Steel
company had purchased five-sixths of the
Oliver Mining company's stock In the
Mr. Stanley asked him why the final
sixth was purchased on a valuation basis
of tl7.HO.000 for the whole tract though
originally the company was capitalised at
only SUM 000. v
Mr. Carnegie expressed surprise at this
"At any rate." he exclaimed "we would
have paid I.S.WO.OOO for the whole tract.
I'm not surprised at anything nowadays.
If that Is true what fools We were to sell
our property t the United States Steel
It was then explained that llT.Ott.OOO
valuation basis was that of ";tha whole
tract and not ih sixth.
-Even then Mr. Carnegie said that if
such a . sum as Indicated by those fig-
ures was paid ha was surprised that he
"was such a f oni to sell our property to
the steel corporation on the basis of
S4 80000000." v
Then a moment after Mr. Carnegie
turned to the Chairman.
"My friend." he said "You will Have to
ask somebody - who know about those
figures. I never heard of them before."
