IMPASSABLE ROADS CAUSE
SHORTAGE OF ORE SUPPLY.
Car Famine Still Fait In Joplln Dis
trictLead and Zinc Roth'
Joplln, Mo., March 3. Dally warm rains
during the week caused the frost to come
out of the ground and roads In part of tha
mining district have) been lmpasaoble for
heavy wagonload of ore. while In every
part It has been Impossible to haul more)
than half loads at any time during the
week. This condition, a higher metal mar
ket and the continued car shortage all com
bined to create a greater demand for ore
In easiest reach of the railroads.
Competition advanced the pric- $38 per
ton for one lot, and another lot sold at
pr7.ro per ton, the assay basis In several
instances being raised to tH.io per ton for
ore assaying tO per cent line, while very
little ore was loaded that sold on a basis
les than S33 per ton. A few lot of ore
wi-io advanced II per ton, and the general
advance amounted to 20 cents per ton.
A lack of sufficient cars for transporting
the ore from the mine to the smelters his
greatly depleted reserve stocks at the
smelters, compelling the loading of ore on
cattle cars and even on open coal cars.
The situation has become so acuta that
it Is necessary for soma of tha purchasing
agents to secure ore at almost any prloc
oio that can be loaded, and on' railroad
that can supply the demand for cars. It Is
apparent from the fact that there ar some
8,600 tons of ore In the. bins of tha produ
cer .throughout the district that th hick of
cars and the mud had mora to do with the
higher prlcevs than the steady advance In
the metal market.
Spelter has gained 10 cent per hundred
pounds In two weeks, and this is equiva
lent to th gain In or prices.
A higher pig lead market brought a St.
Louis smelter agent Into th field for lead,
but the ore has not yet been advanced, th
selling price of the week being Ml per ton,
the some as for two months. Btlll higher
prices for zinc are expected this week, and
hones are entertained that lead will follot'.
Following are th sale of vine and lead
ores In pounds by the companies and In

PLANS FOR (OULD'S
Centralization of Management
With Iron Mountain as Holding
Company for All Systems.
SCHEME IS BEING PERFECTED.
Readjustment of Cotton Belt Has
Been Made and Will Be Tut
Into Effect Shortly.
New Tork, March 8. While there Is more
or less of a haze surrounding; the mysteri
ous steps that are bens takin totvr.rd re-orKanlilr.g-
the Gould system In the South
west, a general Idea of the ultimate pur
pose cf those charged with pe.-fectlnsjthc
plans has been obtained. '
It Is evident that the centralization of
management Is the primary purpose, and
this Is being slovly worked out. It would
seam as If the Iron Mountain might be
come tha holding company for all the roads
except th Missouri Pacific. The various
tepa that have been taken point that way.
It Wat stated positively that the plans for
the readjustment of the affairs of the 'St.
Louis Southwestern have been perfected
and will he put-lnto effect shortly.
They Involve, so It Is ald. the retirement
of tho preferred stock by a 4-per-cent bond
of the Missouri Pacific and Iron Mountain
and a possible Increase in the common
stock. There Is a total of tS),0X).XO of pre
ferred stock and 16,W0.XM of common stoclc.
If the preferred stock should be retired
and no Increase made 1:: the amount of
common stock. It would ba necesiarv to
hold only tS.SOO.OCO of the common stock to
keep control of the property, and th bonds
received In exchange for the prererrrd stoclt
could be disposed of at the best prices ob
tainable. At the present time It requires more than
118.000,000 of stoclc for control, and the street
recollects the time when that control was
nearly wrested from the ?reent manage
ment by a certain capitalist row actively
Identified with Mexican Central.'
That could not be done hot, but the re
tirement of the preferred -toc!t wou'd be
of material benefit to thope now controlling
the property. While It trar be o::!y a re
flection of the rport that the Iron Moun
tain will acquire the Wubus! It is said
that the Cotton Belt the St. Louis South
westernwill eventually pass Into the di
rect control of the Iron Mountain.

problmn of stopping an Immense landslide
that has been coming down on Its main
traclts for several weeks, and Is continu

Ind., where the company recently made &
long and deep cut whereby the track was
shortened two miles.
A mountain of clay four acres in extent
and ISO feet high has broken loot from
the Wampler farm, and carrying trees and
poles along Is coming down on the track
and has left a breach 800 feet wide between
the slide and the Wampler farm, it is one
of the most- remarkable as well a -expansive
freaks ever encountered by a' rail
road. A steam ditcher and fore of twenty-five
men are kept buy night and day
removing the clay from tha main trade,
which Is hauled on flat car to LAwrence
vllle. Ill , and used for embankment pur
pose. Train have to slow up on reach
ing Prltchton. and often watt until trees'
and other ri-hbuh besides the clay are
cleared from tha track, as the mountain of
earth now stands squarely against the
track, almost Imperceptibly coming upon It.
The company Is puzzled as to what to do
In the matter In a legal -way.
The farmer who owns the land.ha threat
ened to bring suit against the companjfor
despotllrur hi land, while the railroad say
it Is the one to proceed and sue the owner
of the land for obstructing Its right of way.

Aanouaoeiaeat of Purchase to Be?
Made .Text Week.
New York. March 8. In the development
of the greater Per Mrqutte Railroad,
now dominated by St. Louis capitalists, ne
gotiations have been practically closed for
the purchase of two of the smaller ur.it
tached railroads of Michigan.' These roads
are the South Haven and Eastern, tunning
from South Haven to Lawton; the Milwau
kee. Benton Harbor and Colema. connect
ing Benton Harbor and Paw Paw Lake.
Announcement of the purchase of these
roads probably will be made next week. It
Is not likely that control of the new acquit
eltlons will be taken before April 1.
Significance of this purchase lies In the
fact that a portion of the South Hven
and Eastern will be used as the ba;'s for
a cut-off. which, when completed, will give
the Pere Marquette a very direct line be-1
tween Chlct-co and Detroit, and. with the
building of the Eastern extension to Buf
falo, a line between this city and Chicago,
which will be in lavorable position to com-'
pete with existing lines for through traffic.

BIRO'S SUCCESS DUE

RE-ENTERED RAILROAD FIELD.
Success Followed and He Steadity
Arose Until Hq Was Ap
pointed Traffic Manager
of Gould System.
Withdrawal of Presbyterian Church dea
cons from the bond of A. C. Bird when he
was Postmaster at Pana, 111., because they
disagreed with his manner of business, is
In a degree responsible for his now beinsr
trafllc manager of (no Gould aystem. and
' one of the best-known railroad men in the
i United States.
I Had he continued to held hi poritlon a
Postmatter. Mr. Bird mly.ht now be a h!r.h
official In the Post Office Department, or a
well-to-do merchant in the Illinois town.
Loalng the postmastershlp forced him back
Into the railroad business, and he .f-rured
a minor position In an office In one of the
roads running Into St. T.ouls. From that
point he has worked up to his present po
sition. The Pot-OfBce Incident referred to hap
pened several years ago, when the traffic
manager as leglr-.nlnc his business career.
His father and grandfather were Presby
terian ministers. Bird was working in the
office of, ttii old St. l.iuls and Alton road
. Tlie salary he received as assistant agent
was so small that he was unable to support
himself and wlte. He cast about for a more
lucrative position, and through the efforts
of friends was appointed Postmaster at
Pana. His bondsmen v.ere deacons of the
church and others who had helped to se
cure h's appointment.
BEGAN' CHANGING PLANS.
On entering upon the duties ot his office,
he found things run In what he considered
an "old-fgy" manner.' and at oiicn set about
changing and Improving the matters In the
Post Office. Not long after ha had, taken
hold he found that his friends, the deacons,
wanted a oice in the management of affairs
and he was unwilling to let them have their
Bird Intimated that he was the Postmas
ter and intended placing the office on .in
up-to-date basis. The lesult was that hi
bondsmen were dissatisfied and withdrew
from his bond. He then resigned his posi
tion and came to St. I.ouIs. where he
entered a railroad office.
It was not long before he became a man
of prominence In loci! railroad circles. Then
his friends, who had formerly been on his
bond, came to visit him. In the course ot
their visits they hinted that he was in a
position to help them In the matter of free
transportation. Bltd opened his arm and
declared that he would always b willing
to help them as. by withdrawing from se
curity for him. they had caused him to
leave Pana and enter a successful career.
AS AN INVENTOR.
Bird Is the Inventor of the tin seal for
freight cars, which has saved manv thou
sands of dollars to railroad companies. He
invented this wlrile working In St. Iul?.
He also Invented a system o"f tracers for
following up lost freight. The tracer is a
book of stubs vrhlch is sent to agents alonsr
the road. One each stub Is a blank de
scribing the mlwing freight.
Ech agent was obliged to fill out the
blank and return It to the central office,
then forward the stub to the next point on
the road. This takes the place of a man
and excellent results were- obtained.
A striking feature of Mr. Bird's person
ality Is his power of predominating
wherever he may be. rAt meetings of traffic
managers attended by Mr. 3lrd his influ
ence was always strongly felt. Frequently
he has held the chair In the assemblies, but
even when simply a delegate he was much
upon the floor, and his arguments were of
such a convincing kind that everything
carried before them.
GOOD STORIES FROM
THE NATIONAL CAPITAL
Washington. March 8. Two very young
lads from Nebraska were taken to the
White House the other day In order that
their proud parents might relate !n after

to the grounds. After that they had a con
fused Idea of what happened.
The boys were questioned about the visit
hat same afternoon.
"And did you shake hands with the Pres

"I don't know," he replied, "hut I shook
hands with that big policeman at the gate."

During tho9 eventful two hours of the
last night seislon of the Senate, when Till
man nt behind a barricade of books and
documents threatening to force an extra
eslon of Congress and "Uncle Joe" van-1
i.on paced the floor of Senator Allison'
committee room emphatically denouncing
everybody, especially United States Sena
tors, Senator O. II. Piatt had his little joke.
Senator Bacon had obtained unanimous
consent to nass a little bill appropriating
J 100 to recompense a Georgia livery stable
keeper for the loe of a horse shot by
United State revenue officers. '
"Mr. President." nald Senator Piatt. "let
ua have the report read."
Thereupon the clerk occupied half an
hour of the midnight .-watches reading th
long report. It was full of particulars an
to the character and value of the bone and
the manner of the killing. It also went in
to a detailed description of how another
honre was shot through the ear. The whole.
Senate was convulsed with laughter and,
tha sleeper in the galleries awoke.
Afterward the Senate passed the $100 horta
bin. while two important treaties, a great
finance bill and the Philippine tariff bill
were not allowed to come to a vote, and
two great supply bills appropriating over
:10.OC000 were held back.
