NEW STEEL TRUST
Duluth Interests Said to Be
Concerned in Combina
tion No. 2.
New York, Nov. 16.—Concerning the
nictHiiig of capitalists in this city to-day
to take steps towards forming a new steel
corporation, smaller, but modeled on the
lines of the United State 3 Steel corpora
tion, the Tribune says that like the Vnlted
States Steel corporation, ijbe new com
pany will absorb three classes of plants.
These comprise blase furnaces and steel
works, iron mines and coal and coke prop
erties, thus providing for every line of
material utilized in steel manufacture.
The plants to be absorbed, it was said,
would be of the best of the outside in
terests, concerns with a large earning
capacity and ready market for their out
put. The territory coveed by the plants
of the new concern will include Pennsyl
vania and Ohio. Some of the plants are
situated in the Mahoning valley, while
some of the iron ore will be mined In the
Duluth region. Said a member of the
law firm of Blymyer, Hobbs & Stover,

The new corporation will not enter the field
to tight the United States Steel corporation.
Those entering the new concern are doiug so
simply as a matter of protection. They are
getting out of the wet while there is yet time.
We hold that there is ample room in our
markets for this rombine and those already in
the field. In England, where a process of
consolidation has been going on in the steel
industry similar to the one here, there are
four concerns controlling the steel output.
There should be room for at least as many

Dcs Moines, lowa, Nov. 16.—"Mose" Ja
cobs, the "king of newsboys," is heart
broken and all but penniless. After ac
cumulating a fortune of $62,000 by the
sale of papers on the street and placing
it all in the hands of his mother, like a
dutiful son. he watched her life ebb away
ten short weeks ago, learned two weeks
later that his father had induced her to
transfer to him. all her property, the ac
cumletions of Mose's lifetime, saw his
father reward this devotion and trust of
his mother by ftiarrying another woman
seven weeks later and refusing to make
any division of the estate with him; and
now he has resorted to the district court
in the hope of having his wrongs righted.
If ever public sentiment was arrayed on
one side of a case, it is in this instance.
All Dcs Moines is ready to assert that
Mose has been the sole support of his
mother and has at the same time pro
vided a comfortable home for his father
In his petition Mose charges his father
with being shiftless and a non-bread

Skeleton of a Giant Found in

iuiddletown, N. V., Nov. 16. —Hunters
from Susquehanna, Pa., while excavating
for a hunt near Shohola Glen discovered
a cave in which they found the skeleton
of a man of gigantic size. It was swathed
in rawhide trappings that kept it in a sit
ting posture, the knees drawn up to the
hand and clasped in a bony embrace with
fleshlesa arms. Near the skeleton were
several bowls of reddish clay, almost as
hard as flint. A stone tablet was found
near the skeleton's side covered with
rude pictures of birds and beasts, among
them one of a monster half beast, half
reptile. A number of implements were
also found in the cave, among them a
huge ax made of stone and stone spear
heads of unusual size.

Unconfirmed Rumor That the

Washington, Nov. 16. —It Is rumored
that Miss Stone has been released by her
Bulgarian abductors. This cannot be con

believing that this event is impending,
the authorities say no surprise need be
expressed should a few days elapse be

The department denies that it has prom

Bulgaria from punishing the brigands
after Miss Stone had been released. As
a matter of fact, it is the department's
intention to require the Bulgarian gov

an indemity besides.

who captured Miss Stone and Mme. Tsilka

demand to 20,000 pounds Turkish. Co

convinced that this is more than Mr.
Dickinson will give, would accept 15,000
pounds sterling. Even this sum is great

Leavenworth, Kan.. Nov. xB. —J. B.
Waldrupe, a guard at the Port Leaven

Some people have made the point that the

The following statement, made by a rich

The government ownership of railroads
would be far from unwelcome to many big
financiers of the country. These men. are
harrassed so much as to make life miserable,
and if they could sell their securities to the
government, receiving bonds in exchange,why
should they not be willing to dispose of
their holdings? They would be in a com
manding position as regards legislation. You
may rely upon it that whatever action con
gress might take their interests would not
suffer. 1 believe that their dividends would
be larger than they are now, and at the same,

POSSIBLE ATTACK IX COURTS
Claim In Made That So Law Is Being
i Special to, Tho*"Journal- V ?<|-~./_
Special vo The Journal.
New York, Nov. 16.—The likelihood of
an attack being made, in'• the courts of
i several states in> the northwest upon the
new company on the ground that it vio
lated the anti-trust laws and the statutes
forbidding one railroad acquiring parallel
lines was .much discussed in legal and
financial circles. While it was admitted
that such opposition would probably de
velop, it was claimed that there are no
laws which prevent a corporation or in
dividual acquiring securities of any sort
permitted under its charter, and that as
the Northern Securities company would
not operate any railroad, but would simp
ly hold the stocks and bonds of transpor
tation lines, it would not violate existing
railway laws in the northwestern states.
This matter has been carefully gone over,
and it is said to be the opinion of W. P.
Clough of St. Paul, the general counsel of
the company, that the legality of the deal
cannot be questioned.
Talk of Financier* Unloading; on tue
Special to The Journal.
Chicago, Nov. 16. —Leading railroad
presidents and general mangers in this
city are scenting danger in the giant
comibinations lately formed in the country
by the big interests. Many think the
financiers mean to unload their holdings
on the government. The belief is grow
ing that the condition created by the mag
nates will lead to a general demand for
government control of railroads. Said one
Here is the new Northern Securities com
pany with a capital stock of $400,000,000, with
out a cent of assets or any income except
what can be made out of the securities of the
roads interested, and which are already far
in excess of the actual value of those prop
erties. If times should grow dull and rail
road earnings fall off materially, none of these
roads will earn more than their fixed charges
and how there can then be any profit on the
enormous capital stock of the Securities
company is hard to see. Of course the ways
of those New York financiers are inscrutable.
They evidently expected to double the earn
ings of the roads by curtailing expenses in
every direction, consolidating offices and
throwing hundreds otit of employment, and
not only keep up the rates but place them
on a higher level wherever it can possibly
be done. Instead of giving the shippers and
the public some of the benefits of the
economies effected they are grabbing it all,
and no one else is given a chance. Such a
state of affairs cannot last. The public will
sooner or later rise against such tyranny
and there will be trouble.

SCORE: FIRST HALF.
Prom a Staff Corespondent.
Camp Randall, Madison, Wis., Nov. 16.—
Nearly 16.000 people gathered at Camp
Randall this afternoon to see the great
football game between the great Gophers
and the speedy Badgers. All Wisconsin
expected the Badgers' speed to give them
the victory and thousands from all parts
of the state turned out to see their ex
pectations realized. Minnesotans were
confident their giants could not be de
feated and traveled hundreds of miles to
whoop it up for J their idols. As noon ap
proached, everybody made a scramble for
dinner and before 1 o'clock the procession
to Cam» Randall baa begun. The vast
grand stand and stretches of bleachers
looked too big a thine lor Madison with,
all of Its vl6tors to fill, but It was not
long before the white expanse of seats
was hidden with a mass of yelling human
ity. The larger share of it wearing the
A great crowd of Minnesotans, however,
ably sustained the Gopher reputation for
artistic and effective rooting. They were
seated in the grand stand, the roof of
which is so shaped as to make an effective
sounding board, so that the Minnesota
yells almost drowned the Badger rooting
from across the field. A thresher engine
behind the Wisconsin section furnished
ateam for a huge siren whistle.
Shortly after 1:30 the Gopher band ap
peared on the field, and to stirring strains
and tremendous cheering by the Minne
sota contingent marched around the field.
The weather for the players was ideal,
and gray and chill, with little wind. But
it was cold for the spectators, of whom
many are chilled, but few were frozen.
The gridiron is covered with grass and
lake hay In its slipperiness. Minnesota
looked fearfully at it and wondered if the
gophers, accustomed to a rather soft dirt
field, would be able to get footing enough
on it to hold against the charges of the
fast badgers. Still the confidence of the
Minnesota wbb unshaken, and victory was
regarded ascertain as the time for the
battle began to draw near.
At 2:20 the gophers trotted into the
grounds, coming through the south gate.
The Minnesota contingent in the stands
gave the gophers a roar of welcome which
was the exultation born of confidence in
victory. The Minnesota contingent was
bunched at the north side of the grand
stand and although greatly outnumbered
made itself heard with the big band to
lead in the noise making.
Five minutes later came the Wisconsin
team and there was a great uproar. The
Wisconsin band played the stirring air,
"There'll Be a Hot Time in the Old Town
To-night." A sentiment which the Wis
consin crowd re-echoed.
The officials for the game were offi
cially announced as follows: Ralph Hoag
land, referee; Walter Kennedy, umpire;
George Belden and John P. Gregg, lines
men; Henry Clark, timekeeper.
Captain Knowlton won the toss, and

BEFORE THE BATTLE
Thins* Got Lively When the Mlnne-
aota Band Arrived.
From a Staff Correspondent.
Madison, Wis.. Nov. 16.—Madison was
the Mecca of northwestern football en
thusiasts to-day. At 5 o'clock this morn
ing, special trains began to arrive from all
directions and kept coming up until noon,
bringing hot rooters to see the great
western game of football for the season
of 1901. By noon it was estimated that
nearly 10,000 vlstors were in the city.
Everybody was expecting Mueller, Minne
sota's right guard, to play. It was not
known that Minnesota authorities had de
cided to withdraw him as foreshadowed in
The Journal of yesterday when it
was said that there was reason to believe
that Minnesota would withdraw the big
guard out of deference to the senti
ment against his playing.
Strathern, who has played substitute cen
ter, it was decided, should .take Mueller's
place. He has shown fitness for the place
by his work in the game against the Has
kell Indians. Thorpe was chosen to play
the left halfback position. Aune will play
right end in first half and Hoyt in the sec
ond half. Schacht's arm is still in bad
shape. Strathren was in bad shape yes
terday. On his arrival at Sun Prairie he
was taken sick with a severe cold, and it
was feared that he might be seriously
weakened. Word waß sent to Madison for
medicine to be used in an effort to fix him
up, and it was felt he would play. The
crowd, however, knew nothing of all this,
and there was loud talk on the part of
Madlsonians against the gophers for per
siating in playing Mueller, and a demand
in some quarters for odds in the betting,
though late last evening there was a good
deal of money placed at even terms, one
bet of $1,000 being made.
The gophers arrived in train loads to
day, coming early. They were confident
of success whoever played the game, Muel
ler or any one else, and showed their en
The arrival of the Varsity band was the
signal for "whooping 'er up," and) there
was no end of hot air for the rest of the
morning. The band, with eight coaches of
lusty rooters, arrived at about 8:10. Tho
next section of the Milwaukee train ar
rived soon after, bringing hundreds
more. Large numbers poured in from
Chicago, Milwaukee, Duluth, Superior and
all surrounding points. The hotels were
overrun and simply could not feed the
hungry multitude. It was announced this
morning that the game would be called at
Weather is cold and. slightly cloudy.
A\ iNCuimln Betting Slow.
Wisconsin- betters are not supoprting
their team. This noon the prevailing
odds were 100 to 75 on Minnesota, but
comparatively little money was wagered
at those figures. Wearers of the maroon
and gold are holding off in hope of bet
ter prices later on. The Minnesota crowd
whioh arrived in Madison this morning
brought $26,000 to risk upon the gophers'
chances of victory. At present, however,
it looks as though most of this money
would be taken home again, irrespective
of the afternoon's result. In the hotels,
billiard rooms and cigar stores even
money was offered on Minnesota with no
takers. A few small bets were made at
10 to 9 and 10 to 8, but even theße
prices failed to tempt the badgers. la
the lobby of the Park hotel a Minneapolis
grain man offered $25 to $75 that Wis
j consin would not score. Another better
offered $10 to $50 that Minnesota would
score 15 or better. Neither found takers.
For the first time in many years the car
dinal was bet to a standstill on its own
grounds. Shortly before noon a party of
Minnesota rooters climbed to the doma
of the state capitol and from there mega
phoned offers of 100 to 80 on the gophers.
They were not called upon to produce.
Probably $1,000 would cover the sum total
of bets made here .this morning. Both
sides are holding off. This will mean a
wide scramble to place money at the field
this afternoon and the price may be ex
pected to fluctuate worse than corn during
a Philips corner.
As usual, Madison seemed totally un««
prepared for the crowd which arrived this
morning. Men who failed to turn out of
their berths until the train arrived found
themselves unable to get into either ho-1
tels or restaurants. Many got no break
fast until noon, and there was much kick
iflg in consequence.
The street, hotels and other semi-publia
buildings were thronged with Minnesota
adherents. "Ski U Man" and "Poor Wis
consin" resounded incessantly, while
badgers responded with "U Rah Urah!" 1
and the old familiar "Anoka, Anoka, An
oka, Minnesota." The people of the town
is more than doubled and the market on
doughnuts is decidedly bullish.
Never before has Minnesota sent such
a delegation of rooters to cheer on tha
team. On the morning trains came ment
of all walks of life, from a justice of the
state supreme court to a little colored
newsboy brought down by one party as at
mascot. University co-eds are well repre-«
sented, and a large number of Minneapo-*
lis society women are here as well.
Will Semple, who was Minnesota's offi
cial mascot in 1895, but who has now out
grown that role, came in with his father-
