WILL BUILD AT BEAUMONT.
Zinc Smelter and Sulphuric Acid
Beaumont, Tex., June 20. In order to get
close to what promises to be a remarkably
rich market. Eastern capitalists interested
prominently in Southwestern Missouri zinc
llelds have determined to build a. million
dollar sulphuric acid factory and zinc
smeller In South Beaumont.
They have also closed a deal for three
Splndietop wells, from which they expect
to draw their fuel supply.
Tney have paid the money for 100 acres
of land as a slta for the plant that they ex
pect to build, and are irying to purchase
almost as much more ground in the same
So careful are these capitalists to keep
their Individual and corporate Identity se
crefthat they are operating, for the pres
ent," through two agents. E- IL Mower of
Boston and Joplln is the agent who has
oeen aomg tne purcnasing nere. aiarx i.
Cox of New York Is the man whom Mr.
Mower says he represents.
And Mr. Mower admits that, back of Mr.
Cox. there are ouier capitalists wno nave
so far shown a. preference for remaining
in tne Background.
Tho anti-trust lawa of Texas are respon
sible for the timidity of the capitalists, ac
cording to common report, for it Is believed
that a well-known concern that Is com
monly colled a "trust" Is the real projector
of the new plant.
It Is stated with much posltlyeness, al
though Mr. Mower does notmake the
statement, that the company that will con
trol the Beaumont concern Is at presant
lntere3ed In practically all the largo zinc
smelters In the country, and that it has
especially heavy Interests In the Joplln dis
trict. Joplln, It Is expected, will, with the
North Arkansas district, furnish the raw
material for the smelter.
The plant will cover at least 100 acres,
and it Is expected that It will eventually
spread out over twice that much territory.
The actual work of construction will begin
within sixty days If the present plans are
Belt Buckles and Buckle Fins.
The most elaborate designs and newest
novelties are here In a profusion of Just
such pleasing, charming effects as will
most effectively set off the smartest gowns.

Washington, June 20 An unprecendented

of New Mexico, in cape the Senate does

him in resigning from Congress In case the
Mr. Rodey represented to his colleagues
that tho failure of the Senate to pass this
bill would be a clear violation of the plank
in the Republican platform indorsing state-
nooa for these territories.
Delegate Smith, who Is a Democrat, con
tended that he had nothing to do with the
sins of omission of the Republican party,
much as he regretted them, but that his
party had voted for tho bill unanimously
In the House and are prepared to do so In
the Senate and, consequently, he saw noth

The promise of the Senate Committee on

cussing measures relating to our foreign
possessions the Philippines, Cuba and
Porto Rico abundance of t'me could easily
be found to Investigate the claims of one

States residing in the territories.
Mr. Rodey said with much vehemence to
day that the present is the forty-sixth bill
In twenty-one different congresses, running
through more than half a century, that his
territory has had before Congress for Its
admission to the Union". The bill for the
admission of New Mexico has passed one

ST. LOUIS MARKET IN LEAD.
Vast Improvements in the Na
tional Stock Yards Facilities
Volume of Business Has
After breaking the record price for cattle
by paying SS.I3 a hundred pounds for native
steers, the National Stock Yard" yesterday
touched tho top motch with $7.75 for hegs.
This exceeds the market prices at Kansas
City, Chicago and all other markets, and
shows that St. Louis Is in the lead.
"We have the best market in the coun
try," said L. W. Krake. assistant general
manager of the yards, "especially for the
Southwestern territory. It costs the ship
per but a fraction more to get his stock
here than it decs to send them to Kansas
City, and the difference Is more than made
up by the rices St. Louis can now afford
to pay. Oar freight rates to the East have
been well adjusted."
Further, Mr. Krake called attention to
the improved facilities that are being con
stantly Instituted In the local yards, re
ducing the cost of handling cattle and
stock to a minimum. Within the last
twelve months nearly S500.000 have been ex
pended in extending pens and barns, and
before fall another $200,000 will have been
spent for additional facilities. This Is an
indication of how the market is growing.
It was found necessary to increase the of
fice buildings, and a new one is now In
course of construction, to cost $23,000. Al-
! though the pens and barns cover 120 acres,
the room Is not sufficient to accommodate
the rapidly Increasing herds. An extension
of the sheephouse to cover several acres
and cost about $30,000. will bo made this
summer. A new bank building will also
be constracted for In a few weeks. Im
proved scales known as the "Texas," which
weigh two carloads of cattle at a time, are
being put In.
Pnld $100,000,000 for Stock.
The National Stock Yards constitute per
haps the largest St. Louis enterprise. In
the last year more than JlOO.OOo.OOO worth of
cattle, hogs, sheep, horses and mules have
been marketed here, and the present trend
of tho market Indicates that this big figure
wlu be exceeded the current season.
On account of the geographical location
of the city, and the Inducement offered In
the highest prices, new territory Is con
tinually being added. More Iowa shippers
ore coming here than was ever known be
fore, while from Kansas and the Southwest
the receipts are constantly Increasing. This
Is especially true of Oklahoma, the Indian
Territory and Texas.
So far this year this market has received
8.S72 cars of quarantine cattle, while Kansas
Clt and Chicago together have only re
ceived 6.503 cars. This Is a gain locally of
1.273 cars over the record for a correspond
ing period last year. In one month the re
ceipts have been 24.SS3 horses and mules,
70.210 sheep and 190.000 hogs. An Increase
of 73,080 head of cattle over last year's re
ceipts Is shown In this connection.
The slaughter at the yards Is Increasing,
as will be seen from these figures: in the
first flv months of 1M1. 1S5.S22 cattle were
killed. The first five months of this year
witnessed the killing of 213,313 head, a gain
of about 20 Der cent.
Armonri Have Ble Plant.
With the completion of the $2,000,000 plant
of the Armours, which will be finished in
a few months, the killing capacity will bo
greatly Increased., This plant will slaughter
dally L500 cattle. 5,000 hogs and 2.000 sheep.
It Is said that as soon as It Is completed
the Armours, who purchased twenty acres,
will at once begin the erection of another
plant of similar size to cost $2,000,000.
The one now In courso of construction
consists of two buildings, each of which
is 00x200 feet, seven stories, and a third
building 300x150 feet, four stories, giving a
total floor space of about two million feet.
About 1.500 hands will be employed. More
railway tracks are being laid, making the
trackage through the National Stock Yard3
a total more than thirty miles.

Mrs. Anna Mullerlng and her 14-year-old

From the station they went to the home
of I G. Stanley at No. 6651 Fyler avenue in

his former home after the disappearance.
Since leaving home Mrs. Mullerlng and
her daughter have been working at the

hope that thev would see the accounts and
return home, but to no avail.
After reading the newspaper accounts of
the "mystery" Mrs. Mermod decided Thurs
day that the woman and child In her em

Fred Reld and Pendleton W. Page, Mayor
and Collector, respectively, of the town of

man of the St. Louis County Democratic
Central Committee, In Clayton, yesterday,
and requested that a meeting of that body
be called to consider the advisability of
placing a county ticket in the field for the
Heretofore the sentiment among soma of
tho county Democrats has been not to nom
inate a ticket this year. The Republican
majority In the county Is about 3.C00, and
they argued that It would be useless to at
tempt to overcome it. They sav that the
two factions of county Republicans arc
hopelessly divided, and It vtould be better
to Eupport one of the factions.
Mesrcs. Reld and Page do not agree with
this view. They ray It would mean an aban
donment of their party organization not to
place a ticket in the field this year. The
population of the county has materially
Increased and Xlr. Page says he has reason
to believe that the majority of the new
voters are Democrats.
Mr. Sudduth stated that he was personal
ly nrpo'ed to the nomination of a ticket this
year, but would willingly call a meeting of
the committee and put the question to a
