Roosevelt Insists He Did His Best to Avert a Panic. FULL CREDIT CLAIMED BY SCHWAB ON STAND Former Head of" Corporation Says He and Morgan Made Deal, ENGLAND HAS NEW POLITICAL CRISIS NEW YORK, Aug. the first time in the history of the United States, a former president appeared before a congressional investigating committee when Col. Roosevelt presented himself be- fore the Stanley Steel trust probe committee today and announced his intention of telling all he knows about absorbing of'the Tennessee Coal Iron Co. by the steel trust. Roosevelt, who appeared before the committee voluntarily, declared that first of all he wanted to accept full responsibility for allowing the trust to absorb the Tennessee Coal Iron Co. He declared that there was no question but that the trust company holding the Tennessee company stock Avould have failed unless financial help was extended and that the fail-. ft- fefe LAST EDITION NUMBER 256, Early Report Forced By Coali- tion of Democrats and Insurgents.

PEACE EARTW lire of the concen. would have started a nation-wide panic. This financial help, he declared, was only available by- allowing the steel trust to absorb 1he Tennessee company and he there- -fore-gave permission. Roosevelt said it was necessary for him to make 'his decision in the matter before the stock market opened for the day on which the absorption took place the panic were to be averted and that he now accepted full responsibility for deciding the way he did. Roosevelt concluded by declaring that the manner in which the panic was averted fully justified his deei- iHon- A- B- Balfour, unionist leader, sion.

Asquith's ad- ?he king that more" pears be have been criminal in my position if I had failed to take such action." Roosevelt admitted, however, that at the time of the merger he had no information as to the immense coal and iron holdings of the Tennessee company whose possession by the steel trust gave the latter 'practical monopoly of. the steel and iron busi- ness. The colonel told Chairman Stanley he would never achieve his purpose of "busting the by them into parts and expect- ing them to compete. Charles M. Schwab, who announced he would tell all about, the trust, de- clared that the idea originated in brain and that the financial genius of J. Pierpout Morgan made it possible. That it was not a trust he protested with an earnestness bordering on elo- quence. Although now a) head of the combine's most powerful rival, the Bethlehem Steel Co'., he had not. one of criticism or complaint to make against it. Mr. Schwab's atti- tude was aggressive, his manner was frank and at iimes he turned upon his inquisitors and shot questions at them. For example, when Judge Bartlett of Georgia was insisting on knowing why, if the cost of steel production in the United States was no greater than that in foreign countries, Germany could land its steel at Pittsburg cheap- er than the domestic product could be transported from in order to coerce the house of lords. Asquith's he declares was "a gross violation of constitution- al liberty." today became apparent that i opposition to the' arbitration j treaty in the senate is pro- I nounced that it is not likely i they will bo considered by the present session of congress."

Ordered to report the bill by Aug. 10, Chairman Penrose, of the finance committee, announced thst it would be reported today, either with no recommendation, or" a recom- mendation that it defeated. The coalition of democrats and in- surgent republicans forced the early report and perhaps an indefinite sit- ting of congress with a probable at tempt to pass tariff laws over tho president's veto.

Governor Harmon has left Colum- bus, and with the exception of an- other short visit in his office in the state house, he will be in Charlevoix, Mich., with his family and won't bo in Columbus to attend the Jefferson club outing, although an invitation had been extended him, and he has been urged, to attend. The entire outing has been arrang- ed by the friends of Governor Harmon who want to see him secure the nomi- nation for president next year, and if any attack is made upon him by the editor of the Commoner, there will bs a scene that will be worth coming miles to see. But when a delegation j of local democrats met Bryan during the past week at Marion, he wa.s in- formed that it. would be unwise to say anything against Harmon in his home city, and for that reason it is not, expected that there will be any- thing out of tbiD unusual except as regards his answer to Chairman Un- derwood. The open opposition of Bryan to Harmon has not cost, the latter any support in Ohio, and it is expected 1 that he will go to the national crm- j vent ion with a solid delegation. The ,_ news from Washington to the I h' amst Underwood is being urged for'1 rhP on hjff ed pleasing to the friends of Govern- or Harmon, and the ticket of Har- mon and Underwood would be entire-1 ly satisfactory to them. Some of the 1 strongest adherent to the Harmon j platform and candidacv have so far j come from states south of the old! Mason and Dixon line and from no-1 ing played. Before the cotton bill comes to a vote the insurgents hope to have a complete understanding with the democrats, such as existed-with ref- erence to both the wool revision and farmers' free list bills.

With but a few hours remain- ing for the filing of petitions for nomnation prior to the primaries, there was no great rush at the board of elections office Saturday and it became apparent that the real scramble to get under the wire would come in the evening. The democrats had their completed but the republicans were not so fortunate and up to a late hour we.-e still seeking can- didates for city treasurer and city solicitor. Chairman Craig was confident he could get men to at least "reserve the places."

"Does that mean you intend to rnn as an independent was asked. "I haven't said anything of the kind." was the quick reply. The republicans succeeded in com- pleting their school board ticket by inducing Merritt S. Wilcox to entei as a candidate. On the democratic side all candi- dates, it was said, had plenty of natures to their petitions which were ready for formal filing. While ftienos of each were making claims it was agreed that with the primaries a month away it is anybody's race for the nomination for mayor and no can tell what will happen.
