WASHINGTON. D. C. June 7-Judge E.
H. Gary, executive bead of the United
Plates Steel corporation, apain a wltnea
before the house Meel trust Inveetlpatlng
committee, today declared thst President
Roosevelt's action In acquiescing in the deal
by which tbe steel corporation bought out
the Tennessee Co.il and Iron company,
"was a piece of real constructive states
manship." Mr. Gary, cross-examined by Representa
tive Littleton of New Tork. elaborated his
views ss to government supervision of
corporations and pleaded for greater co
operation between government officials and
the directing forces of big business com
binations. Mr. Gary' insisted thst the gov
ernment wss Just ss likely to go too far
In one direction 4s the corporations In an
other. Mr. Gary denied charges, attributed
to Senator Oliver of Pennsylvania, that
tbe steel corporation was endeavoring to
gain control over Ohle river transporta
tion lines, so as to cut out water competi
tion In the shipment of coaL
Mr. Gary declared the steel corporation
never wanted a monopoly of the Iron and
steel Industry of the country and had con
sistently opposed such a combination as
tha very worst thing thst could happen to
President Roosevelt, he thought had been
given to understand that the acquisition of
the Tennessee Coal and Iron company
would bring the corporation's property
above w per cent of the country's total.
Tbe bonds paid for tbe Tennessee Coal
company came from the steel corporation's
treasury, he said, and were as valuable as
cash, being amply secured. This method
of payment was adopted in order not te
disturb tha financial situation of the
Control of Ohio River.
Charges alleged te have been made by
Senator Oliver of Pennsylvania that the
United States Steel corporation is endeavor
ing to get control of water transportation
on the Ohio river through absorption of the
Pittsburg Coal and Coke company and the
Monongahela river company were presented
to the committee today by Robert C. Hall,
of Pittsburg. Mr. Gary, replying to ques
tion by Chairman Stanley, denied that the
steel ' corporation bad any such plans In
mind. : -
"Statements have been made by a senator
of the United States who has a personal
interest in the Pittsburg Cost and Coke
company," said Chairman. Stanley, "that
the Monongahela River company Is now
under the control of the Pittsburg Coal and
Coke company and that there Is now pend
ing propositions to change the securities
of those two companies for the bonds of
the United States Steel corporation, with
the inevitable result that tbe Ohio river
will cease to be the medium cf traffic for
the carriage of this tonnage of coal."
Members of the committee and attorneys
for Mr. Gary asked Chairman Stanley to
name the senator. Mr. -Stanley responded
by calling Mr. Hall to the stand. The
witness said be was a former president of
the Pittsburg Stock exchange. He related
the history of the two companies and said
the steel . corporation has a twenty-five-
year contract for coal at a price that
represented a loss to the mining com
panies. A deal la pending, he said, for the
transfer to the steel corporation of a
large acreage of coal, to be paid for in
bonds guaranteed by the steel corporation.
"There is no doubt In my mind," Mr.
Hall declared, "that the deal means the
ultimate shipment of all coal in our district
by rail and the eradication of water com
petition. Senator Oliver agreea with this
Contract Better Than Owneerhlst.
"Mr. Hall has offered no evidence that
we are getting control of these companies,"
said Mr. Gary.
"Tour contract is better than ownership
would be." replied Mr. Hall. "It is cheaper
to get ths coal at your price than to own
Mr. Hall testified that the Pittsburg
Coal and Coke company, known as the
rail company In the Pittsburg coal fields,
controls the Monongahela River company,
which ships by river.
"We have no thought of 'acquiring con
trol or an interest in either one ef these
companies." said Mr. Gary. We have no
in t treat In them except this contract for
the purchase of a certain amount of steam
Judge Gary again today declared that
President Roosevelt and Secretary of Stats
Root not only sanctioned the absorption of
the Tennessee Coal and Iron company by
the steel corporation, but held It to be
necessary to avert widespread financial
Mr. Gary declared anew that financial
conditions in XV. were such thst something
hsd to be done to prevent a panic The
conference at the White House, he de
clared, waa the final step in the cam
paign of prevention, and he added that if
the administration had declined to permit
the combination of the two big steel prop
erties he would hsvs opposed it In the
ted corporation. He Insisted thst the Im
pression made on his mind and the minds
of those with him was that both Mr.
Roosevelt and Mr. Root fully recognised
the necessity for the merger, and accepted
It as Imperative if a financial catastrophe
was to be averted.
"If President Roosevelt and Mr. Root,
then secretary of state, had objected to
this transaction." suggested Repreeenta
tlve Bartlett of Georgia, "would the United
Mates Steel corporation still have pur
chased the Tennetsee Coal and Iron com
pany?" "1 think I surely would have voted
against the purchase." Mr. Gary replied.
"You were at tbe White House then?"
Mr. Littleton said, "seeking the approval
of the administration of the proposed ac
quisition by the steel company of the Ten
nesee Coal and Iron stock."
"That Is not quits rightly put." ansaered

MEXICO CITY. June 7 Amid the wild
est enthusiasm, Francisco I. Madero, Jr.,
today entered the seat of government
which be overturned.
The demonstration was the greatest
which the capital has shown in a genera
tion. Business was practically suspended
and the streets through which the revolu
tionary leader made his triumphal way
were gay with flags, bunting and flower,
while from the throats of tens of thou
sands came roars of acclaim.
The noisy welcoms began when the great
crowd at the railway station first caught
sight of the bearded face and stocky figure
as Msdero emerged from his private car
and stepped quickly into a waiting car
riage. Shouts of "Viva Madero" swelled
into a great chorus as the cry was taken
up along the streets leading from the rail
way station throughout ths city.
Madero Bows and Ssslleo.
Bowing and smiling right and left, Ma
dero was driven from the station to the na
tional palace and then to the home of his
father at Berlin and Liverpool streets.
Throngs that lined the way fell In behind
as tbe carriage paaaed, until a great, noisy
but friendly procession had formed. Scores
of civilian societies, political organizations,
women la carriages and soldiers in parade
uniform moved on to lbs Quick-step music
of the military bands. It was a spectacle
stirring and unusual, but aoiid the popular
rejoicing could be seen an undercurrent
of resentment on the part of unreconciled
aristocracy, that looked on client though
Foraaer Chief of Pel lee Arrested.
Rumors of plots against tbe life of ths
hero of the day were rife, as were reports
that secret arrests bad been made.

wss followed by the arrest of W. L. Dunn,
an American, at Monterey, and Daniel De
Vllliers, a former police head.
These two men are accused of being at
the heed of the plotters.
Madera's special train was preceded to
the capital by a score of other trains which
went up the line yesterday to participate
In the demonstration enroute and escort
the msurrecto general to the city. The
occupants of these trains, filled the plat
forms of the stations a here stops were
made, but the general public remained out
side, held In restraint by a cordon of police.
Naay Shops Are Closed.
Banners bearing Madero's likeness were
everywhere mingled with the national col
ors and slogans of the revolution. Loom
ing larger than all others were banners
bearing the slngls word "order." These
were Intended to Influence the populers
to restrain the more turbulent impulse.
Shopkeepers ss a rule were inclined to be
on the safe side and generally the windows
of their places were shuttered.

The Columbia Fire insurance company
has been sbsorbed by the National Fire
of Hartford, Conn. Thst the deal will
mean a boon to Omaha as an Insurance
center Is the opinion of insurance men.
With a paid up capita of 1300,(00, the
Columbia has had a prosperous record
since it was organised on February L
lSOi). With the exception of the first
eleven months after It was formed, the
company has paid dividends of from S to i
per cent annually.
Control of the entire stock was obtained
by C D. Mullen and E. G. Bochanan,
who has been connected with the com
pany In its Lincoln office. Stockholders
received a premium of 140 per cent from
the buyers, bringing the shsres up to S240.
With the transfer Is included some $.0tt0
In securities, which are mostly Nebraska
Tbe National assumes all the liabilities
of the Columbia, but in the future the
business will be conducted under the name
of the "Columbia Fire Underwriters." Tbe
establishment of this office will make
Omaha a center for a larger field In the
Insurance world than It ever has been be
fore. C. O. Talmage. who has been as
sistant secretary of the Columbia since
It was organised, becomes manager of
the Columbia Underwriters. The territory
over which the Omaha office will have

Poor health will cause Mr. Bohanan to

for a time, but he plans to take ths work
up again In the future. Mr. Mullen will
resign from active business life because
of ill health.

that company In the negotiallona. The
National is one of the big companies of
the country. It has assets of nearly
"While Chicago Is the home office of but
a few companies. It is tha big Insurance
center of the country. This deal Indicates
that a similar situation may result In
Omaha," Mr. Talmage declared. "It con
tinues every thing that existed m the In
surance line up to date, and brings one
of the largest companies in tbe country In
the closest touch with Omaha and its
territory. This undoubtedly will man the
upbuilding of very large Insurance inter

quantity of securities places the National
In a position to advance tbe horns patron
