tions, have made "get acquainted" ex
cursions to. the western states and now
the people of the weat are sending their
governors and most prominent business
men to return the compliment.
The "patronize home industry" spirit of
the west .has been oneof the considera
tions which has urged the western de
velopment organization to send this ex
cursion to the eastern states, seeking the
best points at which the west may buy
Us goods, since It la felt that the opening
of the Panama canal Is apt to make

WASHINGTON. Nov. M.-Kcplylng to
the statement of Uev. I'nd.'flck T.

all tho charge made by the Merrltt
brothers before the house steel Investigat
ing committee, LoniiuH Mcrrlt lost night
declared he had heard It all before mid
that It wast easily to be noon tliut Mr.
Gates wes more familiar with the ledger
of Mr. nockefeller than with tho Hlble.
for the reaaon that his mind for years
had been fixed on "cash on earth rather
than treasures In heaven."
Preacher Speaka K.mphat Ically.
NEW YORK, Nov. 'M. "1 have to say
that not one syllable of tho words which
leonldiis Merrltt put In my inoutn was
ever uttered by me," doclarcd Rev. Frede
rick T. Gates In a statement Issued late
yesterday replying to tho testimony given
by Merrltt recently before the tSanlay in.
vestlgatlng committee. "With all the
rtnnhasls I can command I wish to deny
these outrageous charges."
Mr. Gutes' statement was isnuod. as
was John D. Rockefeller's, on Thursday
evening, in It the man whose name
figured so largely In tho testimony of the
Merrltt brothers regarding the manner
by which Mr. Rockefeller gained control
of tho Mesaba ore properties and the
railroad to develop them goes much more
Into detail than did Mr. Rockefeller In
his -fcply to the charges. Mr. Gates says
that while the Men ltts were testifying
before the Ftanley committee ho wa on
an Inspection tour of the Western Mary
land railroad und only this morning re
ceived a stenographic report of the Mer
rltt testimony. After registering his Im
patient denial Mr. Gates continues:
"I have further to say that not one of
the wrong acts which Linonldas Merrltt
asys Mr. Rockefeller committed or that
I committed In his behalf were ever dona
by. cither Mr. Rockefeller 017 me, and
that both Mr. Rockefeller and I on oath
denied all the wrong ets specifically and
hi detail eighteen years ago. ?' .
Mot Invited to New York.
TonJdM-Merrltt we -never Iwvtted to
come to New York by Mr. Rockefeller or
his agent?. When Mr. Merrltt cams to
New . York he was not solicited by Mr.
Rockefeller or his agent to remain In
New Y'ork. Neither Mr. Rockefeller nor
any of his agents ever solicited Ieonldas
Merrltt or any one elso to unite In a
consolidation of Iron properties. The con
solidation vi as conceived and effected by
Mr. Merrltt and his friend without
solicitation from Mr. Rockefeller or his
office. Mr. Rockefeller never made a do
mand or call loan of any kind to
leonida Merrltt. or any of the Merrltt
brothers. All tho loans made by Mr.
Rockefeller to the Merrills were time
loans with speclfla dates of maturity
named In the notes, and neither on the
dates of maturity nor any other time
did Mr. Rockefeller ever demand pay
ment for these loans. They were per
mitted to run on Indefinitely. AT no time,
was Leonldas Merrltt told that he must
pay these loans either In twenty-four
hums er on any other dale Not the
slightest pressure was ever put upon
Merrltt or any of his biuthers at any time
to puy their loans. Mr. Rockefeller was
perfectly willing to carry them. . They
know well that tho pressure upon them
came from other creditors of long stand
ingnot Mr. Rockefeller." ,
Merrltts Pleased by Offer.
Mr. Gates says that Mr. Rockefeller ac
cepted an offer from the Merrltts In
February. UH to sell 90,C0 shares or stock
for 1900,000 and gave tbcm an option "to
buy back for ono year at 0 per cent, more
than half the stock." The Merrltts, he
adds, were ho pleased that twu weeks
later they urged Mr. Rockefeller to buy
12,0110 ehres moro at the same price,
which, he did, a fact, Mr. Gates says, to
which the Merrltts "had forjolton to
"If the Merrills felt," continues Mr.
Gates, "that they had mude a mistake
in selling this stock to Mr. Rockefeller
at 110 why dJd not they go Into the mar
ket, as they could have dono any tliue
during 1S94 and 1395, and recoup thoin
selves by buying the stock for less than
110, or why did they not exercise Uioir
option to buy back from him at 107"
Mr. Galea goes on to say that Mi.
Rockefeller failed to extend the option
of the Merritta from year to year be
cause they never asked him, but Instead
began a "baaelens" suit against him.
