CORNERING BRITISH POTTERY. The English pottery manufacturers were greatly dismayed by the report of an endeavour on the part of an American syndicate to obtain the com- plete control of the china and ball clay industries of this country. The failure of the attempt is explained in an interview, published in this week's Cornish Guardian," with the gentleman who acted as agent for the syndicate during the negotiations with the clay merchants, and who holds a responsible posi- tion under the American Government. This gentleman informed the interviewer that he had the backing of a powerful group of Ameri- can financiers, at whose head is Mr. Pierpont Morgan. The syndicate wanted to buy all the china clay works, and the terms offered were half the pur- chase-money in cash, half in shares, and at least 10 per cent. of the profits for thirty years. Some stood out for higher terms, but men like Mr. Pierpont Morgan, prepared to pay a big price, were not prepared to wait." Other tactics will now be adopted, said the gentleman interviewed.
