chairman of .the board of director of the
United Statu Steel Corporation today flatly
denied any knowledge of the proposed
formation of a combination to control the
steel trade of the world. Mr. Gary ap
peared before the house committee Invest!
tatjng the ''steel trust" and declared that
he had come to Washington to frankly tell
all he knew of the big- corporation.
The dltclalmor to the world-wide com
btnatlon as called out by a statement by
Chairman Stanley that Mr. Gary was ac
credited with being the directing- genius of
such a "trust.',' Mr. Stanley Intimated that
these report had had much to do with the
Inquiry started by the house of represen
The examination of Mr. Gary brought out
the fact that the Department of Commerce
and Labor and lta bureau of' corporations
are not co-operating with the Stanley com
mittee. Mr. Stanley asked the witness If he
knew whether a report of the bureau of
corporations on Its lavestlgatlon of the
teel corporation had ever been aubmltted
to President Taft of. former President
Roosevelt. Mr. Gary said be did not.
Control of Subsidiaries.
"There la not any doubt," Mr. Gary told
the committee today, "that the United
P tales Steel corporation, as the owner of
most of the stocks of the subsidiary com
panies, ultimately controls those subsidiary
companies, Including their management
and conduct. " . ..
Asked If the Carnegi Steel company now
competes with other subsidiary companies
In the steel corporation, Mr. Gary said:
"I should say It does, putting my inter
pretation on the word. I came to be frank
and to gJve you the exact facts that you
may put your own -construction on them.
"The subsidiary ' companies have their
own directors and officers and have the
right to act Independently, but as the steel
corporation owns the securities, if the con
duct of a subsidiary company waa antag

of that subsidiary company would be

Distribution of Dividends.
"Are the profits of one subsidiary concern
measured as the profits of all? that is,
does the parent company distribute the
dividends of all?" Chairman Stanley asked.
"The earnings of the subsidiary compan
ies," Mr. Gary answered, "whenever divi
dends are deolared, go intd the treasury of
the United 8tates Steel corporation. That
Corporation .being the owner of the divi
dends of urae distributes' them as It sees
fit. Th subsidiary companies have no In
terest in the dividend after they are de
I'clared." , V i t- '

board of directors In the subsidiary com
panies, such as the American Bridge com
pany, American Steel and Wire company,
Carnegie Steel company, American Sheet
and Tin Plate company, . .
'. Mr. Gary declared be would furnish the
Committee all the facta and figure that
the committee wanted.
"All that you need to do Is to request
whatever you want," he said, "and we
will furnish It. We will stand or fall on
our record." .
He declared the bureau of corporations,
th report of which the oommlttee has
been endeavoring to get from Secretary
Nagel, with the consent of the president,
had been Investigating the steel corpora
tion for five or six years. , ,
"Th government investigation through
that source' has been most thorough and
exhaustive," said Mr. Gary. "The bureau
of corporations must have a house full of
tacts. It . has cost the steel corporation
hundreds of thousands of dollars to com
ply with the requests of tha. bureau for
Information and statistics."
- Iron and Steel Institute.
Mr. Stanley asked as to th nature of
the American Iron and Steel Institute. Mr.
Gary explained that It was an organisation
Of iron and ateel men which met to discuss
matter in which steel men were Inter
ested. Mr. Stanley asked about the Gary din
ners of steel men in New York and
whether the press waa admitted to them.
Mr. Gary said th trade paper were rep
resented. "I It not a fact that th American Iron
and Steel Institute 1 an International or
genlaatlon, seeking to Interest foreign steel
men In a combination ot business affairs r
Mr. Gary started to reply, when Chair.
sum Stanley, Interrupted; "I have heard,
ft said, "from time -to time and have read
In foreign journals and others that the ul
timate purpose of the American' Iron and
Steel Institute was to reach an amicable
agreement among steel men In this and
foreign countries, so that there might be
a. necessary steadying of prices in the rest
. ot the world, similar to the steadying of
teel prioe In this country.
"One of the moving reasons why I Intro
duced the resolution providing for this in
quiry was the dread that within ninety
days this Institute or some one would have
effected such an agreement. I have heard
that such an agreement was regarded as
necessary on account of th fact that the
federal government was active to prevent
Such agreements In this eountry and that
th federal eon res was liable to alter the
tariff schedules, both of which could only
be met by an International, organlsatloo."
The chairman called attention to an
editorial in tbe London Ironmonger, which
said the pending International agreement
waa due to "tbe active and able manage
ment of the chairman ' of. the board of
directors of the United State Steel cor
poration." II asked Mr. Gary to prepare
n answsr for the committee tomorrow.
"The statement of the chairman." said
Mr. Gary, "is Immensely frank mud th
question will be met In the same spirit. I
ill give you all the facts in conaocilon

PALACE PROMISES A
FURORE IN CLOTHES
Maker of "Social" Brand
For Men Couldn't Resist
Ten days ago, a buyer for The Palace
Clothing company of 14 th and Douglas
treets, Omaha, made a close cash offer
for 78S suits of men's clothes remaining
from thl season's output of the "Social
Brand" manufacturers of 70S Broadway,
N. Y and It 1 safe to say that a fine
a lot of clothes ha not been purchased
by any Omaha concern, for a little
money. In years.
The "Social Brand" people are contin
ually talking quality and style: their pro
duct Is of that high class, "swell" nature,
that merit and commands considerable
"extra 'money'- both at wholesale and at
retail. ' ; ' '
Nevertheless, The Palace closed out the
789 suits of clothes In question at prices
so low that even the nftiker of ordinary
clothes would gasp If asked to let loose
of merchandise at similar figures.
"Swell" clothes even though they are,
they will be placed on sal at The Palace
Clothing company's establishment at
14th and Douglas streets, on Saturday
next, at the most sensational sale prlcos
ever quoted In Omaha trade annals.
See all papers Friday; and don't by any
means buy a suit of men' clothes before
that time. ,
