E. H. Gary, chairman of the board oft
directors of the United States Steel
corporation and the officers and di-
rectors of six large steel companies

wages of common laborers.

in all. There are 62 counts in which
Judge "ary and the steel corporation
are included. The whole matter re-
volves around the big riot in East

four lives were lost, 37 persons were
injured, and property was damaged
by fire to the amount of $1,000,000.
