Cotton Pool Indictments.
New York, June 20. Some corroboration
was obtained to-day by a report that Rock
efeller Is now the largest lcdhidual holder
of the stock of the Missouri Pacific Rail
road, which, up to this time has always
been regarded as a distinctively Gould
prcpert j .
It was said, however, by the same au
thority, that the acquisition by Mr. Rocke
feller of a controlling interest In the stock,
bought In the open market some months
ago, did not mean that the Gould manage
ment would be disturbed, which was shown
to be the fact at the last election, when
tho Rockefeller stock voted for the Gould
The Influence of Mr. Rockefeller, how
ever. In Missouri Pacific, it was said, un
doubtedly would have a bearing on the re
lations between tho Gould and the Penn
slvanla interests, which are believed to bo
gradually becoming more strained
Georire J". Gould Apprised.
Georgo J. Gould, It is said, was first ap
prised of Mr. Rockefeller's large holdings
of Missouri Pacific several months ago
when a huge bundle of stock certificates
were sent to the Missouri Pacific office to
be transferred on the stock books to Wil
A large proportion of this stock was
transferred prior to the recent annual
mteting of the Missouri Pacific stockhold
ers, and tho fact that Mr. Rockefeller at
that time evinced no disposition to inter
fere with Mr. Gould's plans, is regarded aa
an Indication of friendly spirit toward the
Maj Merge "W Itli the Knty.
The Rockefellers have owned the Missouri,
Kancas and Texas Railroad for several
jears, and periodical rumors appear In Wall
street that ultimately this road will be
consolidated with the Missouri Pacific
Mr. Rocke'eller, for some time, has de
clined to answer any inquiries b newspa
per men regarding the current rumors, and
representatives of Gould say that they
know nothing about Mr. Rockefeller's hold
ings of railroad stock. The Goulds also hold
stock In the Missouri. Kansas and Texas.

CUICAGO .D EASTERN ILLI.NOIS.
"Wall Street Believes This Ilond "Will
Pass Cntlcr Cotton Belt Control.
New Tork, June JO Tho belief Is general
In Wall street that the Chicago and Eastern
Illinois is about to pass under the control
of either the Louisville and Nashville or
the St, Louis Southwestern Railroad.
The control of the company has long ben
In the hands of II. H Porter and his fr'en Is
and control can only be obtained by deal
ing directly with him. as there la not
enough stock afloat, even if it could all be
secured, to get an thing like control.
The fact that the road has long had a
traffic arrangement vlth the St. Louis
Southwestern, and that a bridge is now be
ing constructed across the Mississippi River
between the terminals of both lines Is
looked upon as pointing very directly to a
closer combination by ownership or other
wise of the two companies.
With the Chicago and Eastern Illinois
owned or controlled by the St. Louis South
western, the entire Gould sstem ot roads
In the SOUthWeSt Will have a Shnrt nnrl rtl
rect route, with adequate terminals to Chi
cago. At the same time it is realized that the
Louisville and Nashville has long desired
a direct Chicago connection, and manv be
lieve that the Chicago and Eastern Illinois
Is the most available for this purpose.
OBJECT TO LOW PARTY n.VTES.
"Western Railroads "Would Stop
"Wholesale Cnt Pares,
The general passenger agents of the
Western rallroad-i are seeking a method of
stopping the wholesale cutting of rates for
bnseball, theatrical and other parties.
Lately ncne of the members of the West
err Passenger Association seems to have
paid any attention to the ru'es of the asso
ciation regarding party business.
Th rule Is that party rates shall be given
only to bona-flde organizations, that no
rate less than 2 cents a mile shall be made,
and that no free traisportatlon shall be is
sued to secure business.
It is claimed that In many cases less than
1 cent a mile has been granted, and that
free tickets have been given In cases where
large parties were to be transported.
One road has made a proposition to with
draw the restriction of party rates to regu
lar theatrical and athletic organizations, ex
cept between Chicago and the Northwest
Many of the roads are opposed to thus ten
dering these rates to the general public for
the reason that after drlng so they could
not conslstentl ask the Government to pay
the highest individual rates for soldiers
traveling together, as were made voluntari
ly b the railroads for baseball and theatri

"Washington, June 20 Le Grand Powers,
agricultural expert In the Census Office, in
a report on Kansas, asserts that the Indian
Is not a successful farmer or Industrious
citizen. He sas the Klckapoo Indians of
Brown County, Kansas, have ever' oppor
tunity and Inducement to become successful
farmers, but that they are making little ad
vancement In that respect. He tas:
"The sstem of allowing Indians to lease
their lands Is In a great measure account
able for their lack of Industry In agricul
ture. Their incomes from annuity pajments
and the lease of a whole or a part of their
lands enable them to live in idleness most
of the time, and they are retrograding, ac
quiring habits of Indolence and dissipation,
borne of them, however, have tilled the soil
Industriously, and are steadily Increasing
their acreage under cultivation."
