Bralnard said that ha had cautioned his flagman at Kfflnghaa to look out for tha Panama Limited, as that train waa following the express closely. Bralnard said that his train reached Klnmudy at li:!4 o'clock. Th Panama, limited was due there In five minutes. lie said that h looked out tha door of th baggag car while the engineer Was taking water and saw the headlight of tha limited approaching. He did not worry, he said, as be had confidence in the flagman. He was as tounded to learn later that the flagman had not gone back more than sixty feet before the crash came, Harry J. Boecker, the flagman of the express, was next ex a mined. - He described hi. attempt ta flag the Panama limited ad said: "I waa scared when I looked back and saw the headlight. I did not run back wore than KO feet. 1 swung my danger lantern.. The-train seemed to be three quarters of a mile away." Boecker admitted that Conductor Braln ard had cautioned him about the limited, which had walled at Effingham until the express had got out of the way. He felt sure that he bad run bark mora than sixty feet, but said It was difficult to make time over the tracks. He also felt that he could accomplish more by 'quick signalling than by running fax back. 1 1 Robert Stuart, engineer f the Panama limited, was a spectacle when- he took the stead. His 'face was' a mass of wounds. He said: "I could not see the tell lights of train No. 3t (the express) because of the stesm. 1 saw only the west light and supposed It waa the Interlocker signal. It was too late to slow up when I saw the danger lamps.. I could hare seen a fuse for miles. I could have stopped In SCO feet more. I had shut off steam to comply with the slowup order at Klnmudy." . The testimony of the engineer demol ished the Inefficient airbrake story. He raid that his appliance was working Per fectly.

Tbe leng Interval between the killing and the receipt of the letter was one of anxiety to the South Dakota relatives and friends of the bereaved missionary and It had been feared that he, too, had been killed The absence of authentic news of or from him seemed to point to this. But the receipt of the letter proves that he and his youngest child, whose life he personally saved from the mob, were alive and well on November 15, last, when tbe last section of the letter just received was written. Th first part of the letter waa dated October 27, but owing to the fact that It wee Impossible to mail It, more was added to It from time to time until November IS, when It finally waa mailed. The mission where the Beck mans were stationed Ilea just outside the city of Sbeng-Fu and la surrounded by a wall eight or ten feet high. The letter re ceived from Richard Beck man state that at about 1 o'clock In the morning of Oc tober SI the mob attacked the mission. The oldest Beck man child, Belma, aged 14. and a missionary named Vatne, suc ceeded In gtttlng over the wall and kept sliced of their pursuers for a time, but finally wera captured -and murdered at .a point about eight mile from the mission. la tb meantime those rataalelng within the walla hid ibsrnsalvca la a small building -Mewevec, alter all tb building had been set on fir part of the mob lined up around the wall while the re maining members renewed . the bunt.

EXPORT TRADE IS NOT VITAL Asserts that It le et Parpese at the Cerparatlea ta Attesspt ta seeare leatrel ( Foreign Baalne. WASHINGTON. aJn. St-James A. Far rell, president of the United States Steel coiDoartlon, surprised the Stanley steel trust Investigating committee today with the statement that the steel corporation and the International Harvester company have had no dealing with each other fcr a period of five or six years. The information, coming dh the ev of a proposed Investigation o tthe harvester company by congTeas, in which It Is sought to show as tone existing condition that the harvester company and tha steel corporation have interlocking directors and that the later gives rebates to the former on steel, was doubly surprising. Representatlvs ilcQllllouddy of Maine questioned President Farrell about the export business of ths steet corporation and rebates given to certain companies. "Isn't It a fact that the harvester com pany gets larger rebates than are granted to smaller concerns" Mr. McGllllcuddy asked. "W bav done no business whatever with tbe International Harvester company for fire or six years," Mr. Farrell re plied. "Tbe International Harvester com pany has had av boycott on thla corpora tion. It al grew out of a controversy with one of our subsidiary companies and the harvester company. It-started as a mere quibble between salesmen and resulted In a - complete severance of buainess rela tions. - There Is nothing In common be tween us. Ws don't do business with tllem i Among the board of directors of the United State Steel corporation srs El bert H. Gary, George F. Baker, Oeorge W. Perkins and Norman B. Ream, all of whom also are directors of the Inter national Harvester company. Mr. Gary Is chairman of th board of tbe United States Steel corporation and Mr. Par kins Is chairman of the finance commit tee of the International Harvester company. President Farrell waa Interrogated at length, relstlve to a reported Interna tional ergsnlaaUen. sf steal nwautMr urers to control th price of steel rails. He explained that European nssneriwa. urers bad such an .rgaaltatloti. but the United States Steel corporation was not a party to It. ' ' ' i Asked by. Mr. Brail- If officials of the steeel corporation, when they decided to change prices, were . not bound to tell their competitors President Farrell an swered In the negative. "There Is no understanding that such notification should be given," he con tinued. "Whenever a change of price Is mads competitors find it out In ten min utes. If I should meet a competitor on th street or at lunch 1 would not heal, tat to tell him that we were going to make a change In policy, It on had been decided upon. President Farrell denied, In response to questions by Chairman Stanley, that the Steel corporation gave any rebates or discounts to the Standard Oil company on tin plates for cans. "The minutes of the Carnegie com pany," Mr. Stsnley said, "show that -rebates were given the Standard Oil company on tin plates." "Before, or after the formation of the steel corporation?" Attorney Reed naked. "Afterward," the chairman said. "Since I hare been president of the steel corporetlon," Mr. Farrell said, "all tin plate haa, been sold to the Standard Oil companyandall ether companies at a flat price." Representstlve Gsrdner sought sn explanation of the fact that the price of standard steel rails hsd remained at S3 per ton for ten years when the price of all other steel products had fluctuated. Mr. Farrell explained that the S3 figure for years had been regarded as a fair price and because the cost of manu facture of rails had steadily Increased no one would lower the price. "But why don't you raise the price?" Mr. Gardner asked. "I believe that the prion will be raised." Mr. Farrell responded. "I think It will not remain at 2S a ton much longer. The Republic Iron and Steel company,' which has a rail mill, baa never operated It be cause It thought the price did not bring a fair return." The steel ' corporation president ex plained that tbe United States 8teel Prod ucts company, the subsidiary company handling the foreign business of the cor poration, owned a steamship line known ss the Isthmian Steamship company, which they -were forced to build because they could get none of the ' steamship lines to hsndle their products to countries of Central America. Th export profit of the steel corpora tion had Increased, he said, from $H,)S,M In ltt4 t SSS.OUO.OO. in 1911. President Farrell completed his testi mony today. Tomorrow Richard H. Gray of San Francisco will be a witness. He will charge that " th steel corporation caused him to lose valuable armor plate contracts. Emphatic denial that the United States Steel corporation Is a "monopoly as charged" was made by President Farrell. He declared It was not th purpose of the corporation "to gobble the export trade of the world at any cost." "A monopoly of the Iron and steel trade in this country." said Mr. Farrell, "le neither possible nor desirable. There Is so monopoly or anything approaching it. Since the steel corporation was organ ised there has been much new capital attracted to the industry and many fur naces bare bee built which are not con trolled by the steel corporatlon.
