Mr. Carnegie takes the position that there ought to be absolutely free trade In steel, and his argutnet runs about as follows Ore Is becoming more and more scarce abroad and therefore the cost to the European producer must stead lly rise. Comparatively little steel is imported into the United States while wo constantly export great quantities therefore we must be able to compete with the foreign producers. If there was a weak place In his argument it was when asked what would happen to the small producer in this country in case the price were much reduced He declared that the small producer was not entitled to any consideration that the only man to be considered was the man who could make the steel the cheapest and this of course was the man with the most capital He did not deny that the first result of free trade. If It reduced the price to the consumer (which he very much doubted 1 would be to put the small manufacturer out of business and he did not deny that It would be easy then for the Steel Trust, having possession of the whole field, to enter Into an International agreement with foreign producers and thus maintain the price at practically any flgtjre that it chose. There are some who insist that the canny Carnegie, whose whole Immense fortune Is in steel trust bonds, is looking ahead to exactly that condition. These wise ones argue that the competitors which annoy the steel trust most now are the small independent companies in our own country which produce more than half of the steel made in the United States. If these competitors could be driven out of the field. It is arpued, the big trust would have things all its own way and Mr. Camegies bonds would be even better property than they are now. But however this may be, there is no question that Andrew Carnegie is a very remarkable old man for he fenced all day with 17 skilled cross examiners, all taking turns firing questions at his, matching his wits against their own and he certainly did not come ott vanquished. He did not tell them anything he did riot want them to know and he enlivened the Hearing with Jokes and stories and bits of philosophy, quick thrusts of sarcasm and bright beams of humor such as no othor witness before the Conimltfen has even remotely approached.
