THB STEEL TRUST
That tho steel corporation is a
gigantic trust is the gist of sworn
statements filed by representatives of
tho American Federation of Labor
with Attorney General Wickersham.
The Federation's communication is
in part as follows:
The American Federation of La
bor, as such, as well as tho members
of Its affiliated bodies in their ca
pacity as citizens of the United States
beg leave to ask your department to
commence tho proper proceedings
against the United States Steel cor
poration, its subsidiary companies,
its officers, directors, and any affiliat
ed corporations which are prevent
ing and restraining, and seeking to
prevent and restrain, commerce in
steel and iron, both in the raw and
manufactured state, and in many re
lated commodities. We beliovo their
conduct, as shown by the references
hereinafter made, violate the federal
act commonly called the Sherman
act (26th statute, No. 209) and cer
tain provisions of the Wijson tariff
act (28th statute, No. 570). We do
not think it necessary to copy in this
statement these two federal statutes.
The United States corporation is a
combination of ten constituent or
subsidiary companies that were or
ganized and combined February 23,
1901. The following is a tabulated
list of the companies, together with
their capitalization, including the
amount of the stock and bonds of
each company at the time of the in
corporation, at the values put upon
the respective corporations by tho
boards of directors of each respec
tive company, regardless of the act
ual or intrinsic value thereof:
Carnegie Steel Co.. ... .$320,000,000
Federal Steel Co . 120,600,000
National. Tube Co. , .,. . 80,000,000
American Bridge Co.. . 61,000,000
Lake Superior Consoli
dated Mines 34,700,000
American Steel & Wire 95,700,000
National Steel Co 63,400,000
American Steel Hoop.. 33,000,000
American Tin Plate Co. 46,300,000
American Sheet Steel.. 51,000,000
These figures are taken from cir
culars issued by J. P. Morgan & Co.,
tho syndicate managers of the organ
ization. In a word, the sources of informa
tion we have given you, we think,
justify the conclusion on tho part of
your complainants that the United
States Steel corporation is the high
est development and the final pro
duct of a giant trust, absorbing many
In their fourth annual report, pro
mulgated by the steel trust, the offi
cials avow that their intention is
monopolistic. Inadvertently the fact
is mentioned that this "combination"
was formed to avert a threatened
competition which would have les
sened profits in the prosperous period
which was then opening upon the
iron trade, and would have proved
destructive to several of the com
panies absorbed if they had been left
to competition. The admission thus
is made that the aim was to control
this industry and prevent competi
tion for the purpose of aggrandizing
the profits of the stockholders and
bondholders of this new entity. In
another report the trust officials
boast that they are able to escape
"the hazards and vicissitudes of the
trade as to the necessities" of suffer
ing under competitive systems. In
other words, they escaped control
and repealed "the law of supply and
WHY SHOES DON'T SQUEAK
Most every man and woman re
members tho shoes which squeaked
when now. A few years ago, when
a man wore Bhoes with soles as thick
as thoso worn today, the first few
weeks of their services made him
think of an overloaded box-car grind
ing through a union station. Tho
squeak was agonizing. Ono good
strong pair of boy's new bIiocb could
put a school room out of business.
"What has become of tho squeak?"
a shoo salesman was asked.
"Tho solo of most shoes aro made
from two pieces of heavy leather'
ho replied. "Manufacturers learned
that by putting a pioco of canvas, or
a fiber of somo sort between these
two pieces, tho squeak would bo
eliminated. Thoy did this and that's
why tho shoes don't squeak now."
