Concentrating Plants Close as a
Means of Curtailing Output
in Joplin District.
SUSPENSION IS TEMPORARY.
Fires Will Be Rekindled as Soon
as Reserve Stock Gets Low
and Trices Return to
Y Joplin. Mo.. Oct. 15. About 100 of the
concentrating mills of the district were
shut down last night, all of them for one
week, and a large part of them, for two
week", as a means of curtailing the out
put of zinc ore to the demand of the pur
chasing agents of the smelters. The out
put will be reduced approximately 4,000
tons, or SO per cent.
When this incitement was started
"Wednesday night there was practically
no market for line ore. Since then one
buyer, who has been out of the market
for four weeks, stepped In, and is reported
to have purchased 1.G09 tons, expecting the
price to have reached bottom. Two other
buyers Increased their shipments W per
cent, and from a vacillating market up
to the middle of the week It closed with
a marked improvement, and prices were
no lower than a week ago, although the
fore part of the week It looked like there
would be a cut of from Jl to S per ton
fU along the line on zinc
A flurry In the metal market during the
latter half of the week Is looked upon by
producers as a good omen that the policy
of curtailment entered Into so enthusias
tically, so earnestly and so quickly, will
bring good results alike to the metal mar
ket and the ore market.
No action would have been taken had
ore declined only In ratio to the decline of
spelter, but It was forced down much
more rapidly and the producers felt that
they must act quickly and In unison. It
Is the strongest movement ever entered
Into by the Missouri and Kansas Zinc Min
ers' Association, having the backing of a
large majority of the larger companies
and the landowners of the district.
The highest price paid for zinc was SS
and for lead JSs per ton. The assay basis
of zinc wa J33 to $31 per ton of 60 per
cent concentrates. A year ago the top
price was $39 for zinc and J43.W for lead.
Following are the shipments of zinc and
lead ores from the various camps of the
Joplin district by the companies and in
dividuals owning land or first leases, the
district total shipment and value for the
week and for the forty-three weks of the

DEFEATS OF TWO TEAMS
WERE GRIDIRON SURPRISES.
Waslilntrton Wna Kxprctetl to Vi'ln
From Lomlinrd Culumbla'a
Victory at Surprise.
Two surprises occurred In the football
results of last Saturday. One was the de
feat of Washington by Lombard; the oth
er. Columbia's victory over Pennsylvania.
The last game was a big upset from the
standpoint of Kastem experts and coach
es. Columbia went Into the game with a
team that had not shown anything sen
sational to that time, and which "bear
stories." fomented by Its supporters, bad
said was on the verge of collapse.
Pennsylvania looked to have things Its
own way. Instead. Columbia not only
made two of Its scores through poor work
on thn narf of fYrsnn th Pennsvlvsnla
quarter back, but fairly tore the Penn line
In two when It came to mass plays.
Both uf the first two touchdowns were
made through Ccrson fumbling the ball
on Pcnn's three and five yard line, after
a punt by Columbia had sent It there, al
most from center field. In each case a
Columbia end had followed It down and
was on hand to pick It up and send it
over the line.
Metzenthln was the star for Columbia, as
he scored two of the touchdowns. In the
second half, after Bishop had punted for
the New York college. Metzenthln went
through the Pennsylvania team at full
speed, Dlcked up the ball as It bounced
from Corson's hands and went over the
line without a halt. The play came so
quickly and uninterruptedly that the spec
tators hardly realized what had happened.
As both touchdowns had been made nn
fumbles. It was thought that Pennsylvania
would go through Morley's men when It
came to actual work. AlJed by splendid
Interference, however. Metzenthln went
straight through Pennsylvania's end and
carried the ball over the line.
More. Penn's front guard, was torn to
pieces by Columbia nhen the two lined up.
That Columbia was the better team ns
the game w.is played, seems certain, even
If two scores were made on mishaps by
the Penn quarter.
Pennsylvania's adherents claim that the
game was teallv a tie. when it came to
scoring on actual merit, each team having
one touchdown, made bv usuat mettHxls
In the course of the game. It Is generally
believed, however, that Columbia care
fully fostered stories of Its own weakness
to encourage the red and blue team, and
that the latter eleven fell into the trap.
Washington was expected to win from
Ijombard. The latter college had played
a 3 to O game with Northwestern, getting
beaten by the same tally of points that
Washington was defeated by. Washing
ton played a much stronger eleven than
did the Lombard team, however, as the
latter- game with Northwestern was an
early season affair, when the Evanston
mtn were not oyerlv well prepared.
High School played Its usual strong game
against Manual and took distinct liberties
with that eleven in the second half. High
spread Its team out practically as It
pleased, even on defensive work, once It
found that Its line could hold Manual
Had Manual adopted punting earlier In
