Railway managers are considering a
proposition for the formation of an asso
ciation for the purpose of inaugurating and
maintaining a per diem basis for the use
of ireight cars. Ex-Chairman Midgeley
claims that It will effect a large saving
to the roads. His recommendations are:
That all settlements for the use of freight
cars be on the per diem baI, the method
to be placed In effect July 1, and members
of the association agreeing to give it a
thorough trial for twelve months: that an
organization such as he suggests is essen
tial to supplement the work of the Amer
ican Railway Association; that the new
association should act through an execu
tive committee empowered to interpret the
rules, adjust differences, remove misunder
standings and recommend changes; that a
clearing house should be organized for the
settlement of monthly balances growing
out of the interchange of freight cars be
tween members, and that such a dealing
house be established Oct. 1 or Jan. 1. In
this connection it Is stated that the Chi
cago & Eastern Illinois, the Illinois Cen
tral, the Chicago & Alton, the Baltimore &
Ohio and the Pennsylvania have' been pay
ing Mr. Midgeley a large salary for some
months to rrepare and distribute among
railroad officials twelve voluminous letters
with a view of offering the proposition
contained in the latest communication. If
such an association is formed Mr. Midge
ley would be a candidate for the chair
manship. Norfliweatern Lines Rename naalnesm.
Business on the three transcontinental
lines which cross the State of North Da
kota has about resumed normal conditions,
now that nearly a full week has passed
since the beginning of the great March
blizzard, although a few minor branch lines
remain to be cleared of snow. The Soö
line wu3 less affected and got its first train
through Wednesday. The Northern Pa
cific's blockade lasted 121 hours, and the
lirst train from the Pacific coast to arrive
in St. Paul since Friday last came n at
2:3 yesterday morning. Six east-bound
limited trains were caught In the drifts.
Traffic on the Great Northern was resumed
yesterday, when three "flyers" arrived at
St. I'aul close together. The blockade lasted
144 hours, the longest interruption of traf
fic the system has ever experienced. Al
though put to great expense to clear the
tracks and suffering heavy losses in traffic,
the railroad officials were much pleased
with the heavy snowfall, because It gives
needed moisture to the Dakota wheat fields.
This fact also seemed , to please the new
settlers, over 2.0X) of whom passed through
the St. Paul gateway to their new homes
within the past twenty-four hours, most of
them coming from Indiana, Michigan. Ohio,
Illinois, Pennsylvania, Kansas and Mis
souri. Mr. Ingrall on Southern Railway.
The Manufacturers' Record contains a
lengthy article in which President Ingalls,
of the Big Four, takes for his subject "Ten
Years of Railway Progress"" on Southern
lines. In part, Mr. Ingalls says: "The
mileage in the Southeast has Increased
about 40 per cent., the number of locomo
tives about the same, but In capacity it has
more than doubled. Passenger equipment
has increased the same per cent.; freight
equipment about 100 per cent., with capacity
probably about 200 per cent. The gross
earnings in this section have increased
from $60,000.000 to SlOS.OOO.Oin. The net earn
ings have increased from $21.O00,0o0 to $35.
Ooo.ooo. Almost all of the small lines have
been absorbed by three or four large com
panies. Some of us who traveled in the
South previous to 1S00 can now hardly rec
oncile our minds to the thought that it Is
the same country. Iron and stone bridges
have replaced wooden structures and heavy
rails light ones. In physical conditions,
in management of facilities for the public,
the railroads coYnpare favorably with any
thing in tho country."
Dcinnml Culled Impertinent.
NEW ORLEANS, La., March 20. The re
ply of the presidents to the. Street-railway
Employes' Union was nhort and sharp. It
referred to the impertience of the demands,
which assumed to take over the business of
the companies, to manage, and to the im
plied threat of stopping the business in case
the demands were not complied with, and
refuses to hold any communication further
with the Amalgamated Association. The
executive committee called on the mayor to
ask his influence to bring about a joint con
ference. Mayor Copdeville arranged a meet
ing for to-morrow between the presidents
of the railroads and a committee composed
of men from each road. The matter is in
abeyance until then.
The Motion to Pay Dividends.
It is said that soon after the return of
Mr. fl. R. Thomas from the West Monon
directors will meet and declare a divi
dend on the common, probably putting the
stock on a 4 per cent, basis. Earnings of
the road for some time past would seem to
justify such action. There is said to be
good legal opinion In favor of the state
ment that any attempt to enjoin payment
of the dividend could probably be defeated.
Directors have been advised that there can
be no legal objection to payment of divi
dends whenever they are earned.
Control of Northwestern.
A prominent - local railroad official last
evening received a telegram stating that
the Leeds, Moore & Reed syndicate had

The decision of the trunk lines to increase
the minimum for carload shipments of
grain from 40,000 to 45.000 pounds attracts
but little attention. But few deals are
transacted in which such a small quantity
as even 45,000 pounds cuts much figure;
then the recent action at the seaboard, by
which the inspection of a car of grain costs
now $1 instead of 50 cents, as heretofore,
causes dealers to ship as rauch as possible
In a car.
The American Railway Engineering As
sociation has at last, after long considera

great rail manufacturing plants -will build
their machinery to conform to that stand
ard. This decision is reached after experi

100 feet in length.
Officials of tho roads in the Central Traf

JURY TO DECIDE TO-DAY.
Jam cm "Wilcox, Mis Crope Mur
derer, to Know HI Fnle Soon.
ELIZABETH CITY, N. C, March 20. So
licitor George Ward spoko for the State
this morning at tho trial of James Wilcox,
charged with the murder of Nellie Cropsey.
He contended that the evidence of the doc
tors against drowning was conclusive. He
reviewed the testimony of the melical men
and asserted that the girl was murdered
and that Wilcox was guilty as charged. He
said Wilcox had grown bitter at the re
pulses he had received from Miss Cropsey,
and that he had made up his mind to win
her back or kill her.
The argument was closed by E. F. Ayd
lett. counsel for defense. He review-ed the
entire evidence in detail. Among other
things ho said: "The Cropseys have my
sympathy. I have before extended it from
my own lips. I don't blame Mr. Cropsey
for trying to find out the cause of the death
of his girl. But let us look Into the evidence
in this case. The people of North Carolina
want honest verdict:. Tiie doctors say
there are three tests of drowning, and that
they dj not apply in cases where the body
hid been dead over four or five weeks. The
doctors in this case admit that they did
not examine the windpipe and other tubes
to the lungs. This is where one of the
symptoms is found. The water could
have left the lnnijs and stomach by natural
processes in the course of thirty-seven
days. There was no evidence that the girl
was not drowned." If. however, she was
killed, he contended that the defendant had
nothing to do with it'. He had neither the
motive nor the opportunity.
The courthouse was full of people this
afternoon, but soon after Mr. Aydlett began

KlRblr I'er Cent. Clause of the I.onli-
vllle Board Declared Invnlid.
LOUISVILLE. Ky March 20. The Ken
tucky Court of Appeals rentiere! a deci
sion declaring the so pr rent, coinsurance
clause adopted several years ago by the
Louisville Board, of Fire Underwriters to
be void so far as it concerns real estate.
The decision, it is claimed, is the first defi
nite expression by any court of last resort
In this country covering partial losses by
fire under such condition, though it has
been held heretofore that the SO per cent,
or three-fourths-value clause in Insurance
policies is illegal In cases of total loss. The
case just decided was ,a suit brought by
Morris A. Sachs, of this 'city, against the
London and Lancashire Fire Insurance
Company of Liverpool.
Cleveland Street Hallway May Xovr
Fight Ontnlde the Conrti.
CLEVELAND. O., March 20. The Circuit
Court to-day dissolved the Injunction
against the Cleveland City Railway Com
pany, secured recently in the Common
Pleas Court by the promoters of the 3-cent
fare street-railway system, restraining the
officials of the old company from purchas
ing withdrawals of consent of property
owners for the construction of the new
lines -through various streets. The City
Council has already granted franchises to
the new company. As a result of to-day's
decision, however, it is prdobable that a
bitter struggle will follow between the old
and new companies.

ea3ii.m:ii at m;w yohk.
J. P. Morgan & Co Enormonn Finan
cial Transaction Explained by a
Member of the Firm.
NEW YORK, March 20. George W. Ter
kins, of the firm of J. P. Morgan & Co.,
was the first witness to-day In the hearing
before a special examiner of the suit of
Peter Power against the Northern Pacific
Railroad Company. The object of the suit
Is to prevent ne operation of the Northern
Pacific by the Northern Securities Com
pany. His firm, he said, was a purchaser
of Northern Pacific between May 1 and
May 9 last year, but how much was bought
he did not know. Neither did he know
how much of the stock J. P. Morgan held
on May 1, 1901. Mr. Perkins said J. P. Mor
gan & Co. bought about $78,0jO.OOO of the
Northern Pacific stock from Union Pacific
interests after the Northern Securities Com
pany was formed on Nov. 1.- About $10,
000,0X) was paid in cash and the rest was
to be paid for In stock of the Northern Se
curities Company. After taking the stock
from the Union Pacific interests J. P. Mor
gan & Co. sold it to the Northern Securities
Company, receiving therefor $10,000,000 in
cash and the balance in stock. The cash
received from the Northern Securities Com
pany was equal to the sum paid the Union
Mr. Perkins said! that. at the time of the
purchase of the stock by his firm there was
no agreement in existence with the North
ern Securities Company in reference to the
disposal of the Northern Pacific stock. He
said his firm simply acted as brokers in
the transaction. In case the stock was not
disposed of to the Northern Securities Com
pany It would have been turned back to
the Union Pacific interests. Mr. Perkins
said he did not know whether J. P. Morgan
& Co. owned any of the stock of the Great
Northern Railroad during the summer or
autumn of and he did not know how
much Great Northern stock the firm owned
"Do you know that he firm of J. P. Mor
gan & Co. acquired ?16.0H),000 to $18,000,000
worth of Northern Pacific stock between
May 1 and 9, 1S1?" Mr. Perkins was asked
by Judge Lancaster.
The witness said he had no knowledge of
such transaction. Judge Lancaster then
asked for a list of all the members of the
firm of J. P. Morgan & Co. The list was
handed him. A conference ensued, during
which it was suggested that subpoenas
might bo issued for some of the members
or for all.
The next witness was A. P. Clough. vice
president and a director of the Northern
Securities Company. He said the transfer
of about 500,000 shares of Great Northern
steck to the Northern Securities Company
had been completed and that negotiations
were pending for .about 300,000 or 400,000
shares more. There were 1,250,000 shares of
Great Northern in existence, he said. Of
Northern Pacific stocks $150.000,000 par value
had been turned over to the Northern Se
curities Company. Mr. Clough said he never
knew of any arrangement between Mr. Har
riman, Mr. Morgan, Mr. Hill and others
subsequent to May 1, IDOl, by which Mr.
Morgan was to be given the proxy of Mr.
Harriman in the Union Pacific in exchange
for Mr. Harriman being placed on the
boards of the Northern Pacific and the Chi
cago, Rurlington & Quincy. The hearing
was adjourned until to-morrow.

The more spring-like weather yesterday
gave more life to trade than on any pre
vious day of the week. On Commission row
there was a good deal of activity. Ship
ments of fruits and vegetables were quite
heavy, more especially of Irish potatoe.
oranges and apples, and prices were firm,
except on green stuff, which is coming in
more freely, with prices easing oft some
what. Irish potatoes bold from :Xc to $1 a
bushel. Commission men talk lirm prices
notwithstanding that it is said not more
than one-third of last year's crop in .Michi
gan and the Northwest has leen sold.
Strawberries are in better supply, but are
yet selling at luxury prices. Rhubarb, cel
ery, radishes and the like are in more
abundant supply and prices are easier. The
produce market continues active and prices
are well maintained, but a few days' of
warm weather wil doubtless change the
price of eggs and butter. Poultry is not as
plentiful as usual at this season, and until
the country roads are better the supply will
be light and prices well held. The iron and
sttel market is in strong tone, with an
active trade. Prices have lost their advanc
ing tendency and have settled down to a
solid basis, it is thought. Tiie wool market
is firm, with little doing. Seed merchants
report business as improving, with a big
spring trade in prospect. Prices rule much
the same as for a month past. Leather pre
sents no new features. lTices, except on
harness leather, are very firm, but tho ex
