Finally he answer ed government regulation on the same principle as now in opera tion in regard to railroads, i Then he wandered once more. He produced a long typewritten statement, and began to read it, and not the most strenuous ef forts of the committee could stop him. It dealt with how Andy would run the government if he ere the government. Stanley asked the "Little Fath er of the Steel Business" if he did not believe that men who violate the laws the regulations of busi ness should be sent to jail. Carnegie said that punish ment as a warning to others" doubtless was a good "legal ar gument", but that he did not think that morally a man's con science was clouded who could .say: "I have done no wrong knowingly."

Then he refused to "criticize his successors in business"; in other words, he refused to have anything- to say about the meth ods of the Morgan Steel Trust.

At the close of it, Carnegie re marked to Gardner: "If you were in my position,' and I in yours " "Well, I'm not," snapped Gardner. "I'm examining you, and you are on the witness stand." Carnegie sighed. "I know it," he said. "I wistf our positions were reversed." o- 'HUMAN ADDING MACHINE'S" MEMORY PAILS HIM ON STAND; HENR'Y F. MOYER CAN'T REMEMBER The testimony of Henry...
