ROOSEVELT TAKES ALL THE BLAME FOR
THE BIB STEEL CORPORATION MERGER
New York, Aug. 5.—Theodore Roosevelt,
former president of the United States,
appeared unexpectedly before the Stan-
ley committee Investigating the steel
trust Saturday and assumed entire re-
sponsibility for allowing the United States
Steel corporation to acquire tJhe Tennes-
see Coal and Iron company during the
panic of 1907. He enid he wanted to
avert a "world-wide smash." and «uo-
ceeded In his purpose.
Mr. Roosevelt read a statement he had
prepared for the committee. In which he
"It -was neceetsary for me to decide on
the instant, before the opening of the
stock exchange, and failure to act at that
time would have made any further ac-
tion useless. Attorney General Bonaparte
advised me that In the circumstances
ther, would be no proper ground tor
prosecuting the Steel corporation. But
I wish tt to be distinctly understood that
the responsibility f-oc the act Is solely
^The ex-president, however, admitted
that he had not been told by Messrs.
Gary and Frlck at their conference with
him In Washington that it was necessary
for the United States Steel corporation
to absorb the Tennessee Coal and Iron
onnrpany in order to stop the panic.
Chairman Stanley a3ked tiie oolonel to
tell his story In his own way of what
happened at the conferences leading up
lo the absorption of the Tennessee Coal
and iron company by the Steel corpora-
"Mr. Chairman." said Roosevelt,
well modulated tone. "If It Is agreeable
to you I win reo«l from these notes me

miliar Just now and with which I have
refreshed my memory.
"In the fall of 1907." then read Colonel
Roosevelt, "there was a serious finan-
cial depression in New York City and
elsewhere. The damage that had been
done was great. The impending danger
was greater. There was a panic and. no
one could tell or foresee what might

you know, the events moved swiftly He
took some actien on his own initiative
and T did also.
"I was notified that a couple of gen
tlemen wanted to see me in my office
In the White House. -Mr. Bonaparte had
Rone out of town, but I Immediately got
In touch with one of his assistants.
Messrs. Frick and Gary were in my or
fice waiting for me.
"I wish it distinctly understood that in
the matter of acquisition of the Ten-
nessee Coal and Iron company by fhe
United Suites Steel corporation, I acted
purely upon my own initiative. The re
sponsiblllty is solely mine.
"The word panic means fear. You all
know it prevailed at that time, and
loss something was done at once to
Ptop it. it is probable that there would
3iave been a general and world-wide

^ bad fallen and two or three other trust
companies followed. Other big ones were
on the dividing line. They, or rather
the Individuals In them, held securities
of the Tennessee Coal and Tron company.
* Now. the securities were useless In ease
of an emergency, but the value of the
securities of the United States steel cor-
^^ration were known all over the. world
Frick and Mr. Gary proposed to
the that to save the situation the iTnited
Slates steel corporation would acquire
Die Tennessee Coal and Iron company.
Now, It was necessary for me to decide
that proposition on the Instant to tide
the stock exchange over. The situation
in New York was such that an hour
might be vital and that failure to act
for even one hour might subsequently
r< nder all efforts at action useless.
"By having acquired the Tennessee
Coal and Iron company the United Slates
steel corporation would simply have
added about 4% percent to its control
rf the steel and iron product—an Increase
from RO percent to 62 >4 per cent. This
addition by Itself would have worked no
change In the legal status of the steel
. ..rporatlon. Action was emphatically
necessary for the general good of the re-
public. The only chance of arresting a
panic was offered by Messrs. Frick and
Ridhmond, Va Aug. 6.—Three new wit-
nesses have been found who will go on
the stand In the Beattle case and swear
that Mrs. Henry Clay Beattle was shot
while in the roadway and not in the
automobile In which she had gone to
ride with her husband. They also will
.swear that when the body was first ex-
amined after Beattle had taken it home
that her hair was filled with dirt and
dust from the roadway, but her clothing
bore few traces of her having been
knocked down befora being shot.
The detectlvcs have the names of all
who passed the scene of the shooting
that night, and they have all been sub-
Preparations are being concluded for
the trial of Beattle. The young man
will find himself facing a Jury of stern,
hard-headed, plain farmer folk of Ches-
terfield county, which lies Just across the
James river from this city.
The draina of the trial will be played
In a quaint court house built a century
ago, shaded by great trees and on the
quiet main road that runs through the
village of Chesterfield, five miles away
from the railroad and the telegraph.
Two or the ablest men at the bar of
Virginia have been engaged to defend
Beattle. They are Hill Carter, a bulky
man with a big brain, skilled in the law,
very suave and gentle In his approach
to a witness, but quick and keen for
taking advantage of every point in favor
of a client; and Henry M. Smith, once
commonwealth's attorney of Richmond,
Who has spent all of his professional ca-

On the other hand, the commonwealth's
attorney of Chesterfield will have as an
aide Louis Wendenburg, than whom there

Lawton, Okla., Aug. B.—(Special.)—
Although Friday night John Rogers de-
clared his brother, Pearl, did not <have a
gun in his possession when killed by
Deputy Sheriff W. B. Oentury, in a con-
tinuance of the coroner's Inquest Satur-
day he swore that he picked Pearl's gun

must have used, was found within the

Lon Frame- chairman of the state
board of public affairs, went to Sulphur
Saturday to make arrangements fo* the
leasing of buildings there for the use
of the state school for the deaf dur-
ing the coming year. The lease of the
buildings now occupied by the school
expired on August 2, and the state will
either renew that lease or lease other
buildings which have been orrered for
It had been expected that the new
building would be ready for use at the
beginning of the coming school year,
but the difficulties with the contractors
over their alleged failure to bring the
building up to specifications has tied
that building up completely. The board
of affairs has turned sll of the papers
over to the attorney general for the
purpose of bringing suit against the con-
tractors on their bond, but even If the
state should recover in such a suit the
money could not be used until reap-
propriated, so that the building cannot
be completed until after another ses
sion of the legislature.
Under the opinion of the attorney gpn
eral, the same Is probably true of the
two buildings now under construction a*
the state insane asylum at Vinita. Ow-
ing to the difficulties lrt connection
with the public building fund, work
was suspended there about. June 1. Un-
der the attorney general's ruling the ap
propriation expires on September 17, two
and a half years from the date of the
appropriation act, and It would be Im-
possible now to complete the buildings
by that time If work were resumed at
once. It seems probable, therefore, that
they will also have to await a reap-

decided to distribute directly to the
counties without going through the

mand is refused he will bring mandamus
proceedings to compel the turning over
to him of the funds In question.
His contention Is that his Is the proper
custodian of all state funds and that no
state moneys should be paid out except
from the treasurer's office, on warrants
from the state auditor. Auditor Meyer
takes the same position and voted
against the resolution adopted by the
school lancj board, authorizing the dis-

Saturday from that order. The railroads
allege as the basis for the appeal that
the order affects and Is Intended to af
feet Interstate rates, and 1s therefore In

the United States. Members of the Okla
homa commission state that the rates are
not placed as low as the Interstate rates
by this order, and that they could there
fore have no effect on Interstate rates.
The changes made were principally
the nature of an adjustment for the pur
pose of doing away With inequalities
which were alleged to exist In the rates
to Oklahoma City. The new rates are
now In force, not having been superseded
by the railroads.

Next week the North Bros. Stock
company will offer "Madame Sans

city nearly $33,000, to the medical school.
The city will receive a rental to be de-

that the medical school will be paid
for the service thus rendered the city.

vides for two years clinic work here

purpose Mr. Highley believes he can
