With the consummation of one of these transactions tho solo of the Midvalo Steol Company, of this city, to a group of capitalists headed by William K. Corey and Percy Rockefeller light una shed on the probable line-up of the financial powers of the country for control of huge manufacturing plants, which are available for transformation into arsenals for munitions, or which arc already devoted to making goods in heavy demand in war times. MAY AVEKT CLASH That financial war between the Du Pont and Schwab forces on tho one hand and the Morgan Interests and Corey on the other may be averted waB seen by some observers In the fact that Samuel F. Pryor, general manager of the Reming ton Arms Company and a director of the General Motors Company and the Baldwin Locomotive Works, became one of the pur chasers of Midvale and was promptly elected a director. Mr. Pryor's interests are thus Joined with those of both of the supposedly rival camps. The news was received as an Indication that the two strongholds of finance may combine at an opportune time instead of arraying themselves for a battle to the finish. The pending appeal of the Government's case against the "Steel Trust," which In the United States District Court resulted In a verdict for theUnited States Steel Corporation, was mentioned as a factor which might prevent any admission by thp leaders that they were forming a new combine.

In con sequence two persons were taken td the Jefferson Hospital and may be In danger of death, and while no other cases of poisoning have been reported to the police, It Is feared that residents of various sections of the city who patronized the store today may be in a similar condition. The two patients of the Jefferson 'Hos pital gave the names of Mies A. May rarrell, of S23 North Franklin street, and Joseph Raker, 608 West Lehigh ave nue. The latter is supervisor for John A. Belby, of Camden, agent for the manu facturers of the drink. Mlis Farrell Is the demonstrator. Each Is 23 years old. Men, women and children who passed the booth where the drink was being dem onstrated were Invited to sample the liquid. Almost every person who accepted the invitation complained that the drink was bitter. In consequence, Miss Farrell summoned Raker, her supervltor, and he sampled It, He, too, found it to be un usually bitter. Miss Farrell and Raker were discussing the cause of the defect, when their at tention was directed to two bowls from which the woman had poured water into the drink. 'Where did you get the water to dilute it fromT" Raker Is said to have asked. "From these two basins," the woman replied. With a groan, the supervisor informed the woman that the receptacles contained bichloride of mercury. Within an hour Raker and Miss Farrell became III and were taken to the hospital. Meanwhile the fluid is undergoing a test In tho chemical laboratory of Jetlerson College to determine the strength of tne bichloride. - It was Impossible to estimate with any certainty the number of persons who drank the medicine, but it Is believed thst between 23 and 50 tasted it. Members of the management of the de partment store would neither affirm nor deny that the poison was given out to patrons In the nerve tonic They said that the girl was taken to the hospital suffering from nausea, but they did not know whether this was the result of taking poison or not. Officials of the company manufacturing tho tonlo admitted this afternoon that the solution of bichloride had been part of the mUture handed out to passersby.
