Hello Jo

It's difficult to say without more context; but it seems to mean:

"MrX had a big disagreement with J.P. Morgan, an extremely prominent person and very wealthy businessman. Roosevelt confronted MrX, compelled him to concede to Morgan, and threatened to imprison him."

No, what I meant was that the original was supposed to be "run-in", so your paraphrase sounds fine to me, Mr. P.
