sralc.ets niaae in that arucle it oe
came the bar-Is for the questions asked
by the meuibers cf the com aittce at
tbd hearings on the steel schedule.
As the testimony of various steel
manufacturers was at variance with
the statements made by Wr. Carnegie ,
the comciiti.'e invr.od him to give any
inlcrmatic.i the cji-iaiiaee could use.
As Mr. Caneslc dcchacd to accept
the invitation , he wa subpoenaed.
A'.tr.o.i he v.xs en tne stand for

cf the "olr.nd r tt io' v/ih his em

of CIaiIe * M. Cchv/ab , argo.1 the com
"lit lee to accept the testimony of
Judge E. H. Csry as conclusive , and

S = ys Slcei Kcecls T-fo Protection.
Jlr. Carnegie's principal contiution
was that the stcei
industry roJs no
mere protection , that it has i cached a
point in ic3 drvelopiiisnt where the
Amr"caa Kpnaiacturers can compete
v. ith the vorid under free trade condi
tions. V/hile he claimed that the cost
of la cor and. production of steel are
ler-s in this country than the other
eour tiies producing steel , ? , Ir. Car
negie ave no figures to support his
He said Judge Gary told the com
mittee that the United States Steel
tnii'f oa its producs and that should
be sufficient evidence ior the com-
r.ittee to take off the duty on steel
and iron.
Mr. Carnegie's testimony was most
unicru ? and interesting end he fre-
quentiy caur.scl much laughter , the
joke often being at the expense of the
chaiiman or some other member of
the comr-tittae. He declared emphatically - [
ally against ccnibiiations or "trusts"
r.nd said : he had nothing to do with the
sale of the Carnegie Steel company
to the United States Steel corpora-
tion. He characterised the " : ; tock
gambler" as being the worst citizen a
corntry could have , and said he never

Gsry and Schwab Interacted Witnesses
Mr. Canegie dealt largely in the

cf Judge Gary and Mr. Schwab. Tie
said 1'iat these two gentlemen
very truthful , but were interested wit
nesses , and the committee should net
place too much stress on figures sup
plied bv "interested witnesses. "
Mr. Carnegie evidently enjoyed the
crossfire of questions put to him by
both Republici and Democratic mem-
born cf the committee , but frequently
f : . ; jsed regret that he could not wl

state '
practkai'y completed iu ease
against the eight ahtje.t night riders
orK tnal lor the murder of Captain
Kanken : when it diew from Frank
Fehringcr , a member cf the band , a
detailed statement , not only of the
Ranken : tragedy , but of "half a score
or more 01 other outrages. It also
called Mrs. Eiama Thurman Johnson ,
one of the two women said to have
been whippet ! by the banJ , and had
her tell her story.
The startling testimony of Con
fessor : Frank Fchringjr , involving the
men < on trial as actaal paitlcipants in
the uiurder of Captain Ranuen , was
given with an exactitude of detail
that was amazing. As .Mrs. Johnson's
name was called , a murmur of satis
faction arose. Xearly everyone Knew
she had been whipped , but except the
grand ; jury and prcsaeuting oificers ,
none had heard her story. She re
moved her veil reluctantly en tilt ; r
judge's < instructions that she might Le
heard by the jury.
Mrs. .Johnson hul married Joe
Johnson ; , a man thirty years older
than she , and lived with him four
years ; , when a chii-i was born. Last
August she sued him for divorce ,
charging cruelty , ; .nd asking main
tenance. Early in September the rid
ers visited her fathers home , and l ft
word that she must withdraw the suit.
She failed to do so and oa a second
visit her lather was whipped tl"
Riders Enter in Silence.
On both occasions shejvas at her
sister's homo. The riders seem to have
realized this , for on Sept. 30 , about 11
o'clock at night , they went to the sis
ter's house. Mrs. Johnson awoke to
find her bedroom filled with masked
and armed men. A man , whom she
said she recognized as Fred Pinon ,
one of the defendants , was standing GO
close that she could touch him.
"We have come to tell j'ou for the
last time that you must dismiss P di
vorce suitPinon is charged with
"I will not withdraw it , " she replied.
"You will before we get through
with you , " was the reply.
Mr. : . Johnson obstinately insisted
that she would press the c-aso. Two
members ; of the band seized the young
woman : , dragged her roughly from th
bed , threw her on a log in the v voL.
and one of them beat her across the
shoulders with a strap. After the first
beating they asked her if she would
dismiss the suit. She said no. Then
was again whipped. This time
fighting spirit was broken and she.
sobbingly , said she would give in to
their : demands.
Judge Jones sent out the jury be
fore court adjourned and said : "There
eight defendants here charged
with'a ! capital offense. They are net
handcuffed and are under guard of the
deputies. I do net think they are
sale Therefore I order the sheriff to
handcuff these men and ask tlie mili
to detail ten armed men to serve
guards. "
