NEW YORK. May 13.-James A. Far
rell. president of tho United States Steel
SorporatIon continued his testimony to
day in the hearing -of the government's
suit to dissolves the corporation.
He said that were It not for the policy
of the corporation "to do a general busi
ness regardless of conditions" the cot
ton crop of the United States this year
could not be marketed.
"Our competitors," he said, "have
ehown no desire to manufacture cotton
ties, so It developed upon us to supply
the demand. It Is not an attractive busi
ness, but lost year wo supplied the com
press men in the south with 1,900,000 bun
dles at 85 cents a "bundle. If we should
stop manufacture', the cotton crop this
year would Ho on the groundT'
"The. government at the time of the re
cent floods," he continued, "needed steel
piling to strengthen the levee at New
Orleans. We got a rush order for 515
tons on Thursday, and In spite of the
fact that we were very busy we deliv
ered It on Tuesday next, eighty-six hours

PlBT Iron Coming; from India.
The cost of production of steel was
greater In America than in European
countries. Mr. Farrell testified. Ue said
the wages paid abroad were 37 per cent
to 88 per cent lower than here; freight
rates were lower and shipping facilities
for export trade were better.
Pig iron could be manufactured In
India and laid down in Calcutta at $5.88
a" ton, he added, and there was now un
dor way In a sailing vessel from that
port to San Franclaco the first cargo of
Indian pig Iron ever brought to this coun
'The freight was 35.50 a ton and, under
the new duty the tariff 11 cents. Thus
the pig iron Would be laid down in Skn
Francisco at a cost of about $11.50. Chi
nese pig Iron could be laid down, In San
Francisco under the new duty for 310.78.
The present market price for pig Iron on
the Pacific coast is $21.50.
"Did you tell Mr. Underwood about
that?" asked Judge Dickinson, counsel
for the government.
"I don't think it would ake any dif
ference with him." smiled the witness.
Bella at Cost to Rivals.
The steel corporation exercises its
power to prevent corners in pig tin. Mr,
Farrell said. Ue explained that pig tin
was a highly speculative commodity and
susceptible to corners.
"We have on hand the largest stock of
pig tin In the world, and when the Don
don shippers attempt to cornor It we are
time and time again asked by our com
petitors to supply them. We always give
It to them at cost plus the rate of ex
change. Wo don't make any profit on It"

WASHINGTON, May IS. In a report
prepared at the Instance of Chairman
Underwood of the house ways and means
committee, the bureau of foreign and
domestlo commerce says that a comparl
son of seventeen industries In Britain
and the United States shows that the
manufacturers in this country have
higher efficiency and two and a half
many wage earners and one-sixth more
power is needed In the United Kingdom
thai in the United States to produce a
net output of equal value.
Average wages in the seventeen indus
tries, the report adds, were only half
as high In Great Britain as here, although
the wage cost to obtain an equal value
of net output was 19 per cent higher.

Long Missing Verses
of New Testament
LONDON, May 13. Some Ioiik missing
verses of the New Testament are In
cluded In the manuscripts of the gospel
discovered In Egypt six years ago and
purchased by Charles 1 Freer of De
trolt Mich., according to a study made
ot the Freed manuscript by the Times.
! A facsimile of the manuscripts has been
presented to the British museum by the
University of Michigan to which Mr.
Freer assigned the task of publication
and, according to the Times, there have
been found In the gospel of St. Mark
several verses which occur In no other
known manuscript of the new testament,
although there were known to St
Jerome, who quotes part of them.
In the Freer manuscript after the pas
sage -In which It Is said that Jesus up
braided his disciples for their unbelief,
the text continues as follows:
"And they excused themselves, saying
that this age of lawlessness and 'unbelief
Is under Satan, who through the agency
ot Unclean spirits suffers not the true
power of God to be apprehended.
"For the cause they said unto Christ,
reveal now at once thiy 'ghteousness
"And Christ said unto them, the ltmtt
of the years ot the power of Satan is
(not) fulfilled but It dravcth near (tho
text here as elsewhere Is corrupt).
"For the sake ot thpse that have sinned
was I given up unto death, that they may
return unto tho trtith and sin no more,
but may Inherit the spiritual and Incor
ruptible glory of righteousness In
A large number of variations In other
portions of the new Testament are also
pointed out by the Times in the Freer
