PIG IRON RATES.
Pig iron rates and storage charges
were the chief topics discussed at the
meeting of the Central Freight Associa
tion. The demoralization In these mat
ters has extended over quite a period,
out It was thought well to see what can
be done by individual effort before tak
ing united action. With reference to
Storage charges at elevators, the asso
ciation finds itself handicapped by the
ruling of the interstate commerce com
mission. that where elevator charges are
made they must be published on the
tariff. It is hoped- that the posting of
charges at each elevator storage ware
house will be held to comply with this
requirement, as otherwise a very long
list will be needed. It was decided that
apples will be taken in central freight
territory at 150 pounds a barrel, and
lime in bulk, where the actual weight
cannot be determined, at 70 pounds a
Imrrel. The rule of the asodatlon makes
it SO pounds a barrels, but this is in con
travention of the Ohio state law, which
fixes it at 70 pounds.
A NEW ORGANIZATION.
An organization to be known as the
Federation of American Railway Em
ployes has ?been formed at Chicago. It'
Includes the Brotherhood of Locomotive
Firemen, the Brotherhood of Railway
Trainmen, the Order of Railway Tele

senger Association haVe agreed to co
operate with those of the Western Asso
ciation In running homestead excursions
March 15 and April 5 and 19. For some
of the eastern roads this Is a new move.
WILL ADVANCE COAL RATES.
At the meeting of the representatives,
j of Ohio and West Virginia coal roads
I In Cincinnati it was agreed to advance
! the rate on coal from the mines of Ohio,
West Virginia and Pittsburgh fifteen
1 cents per ton on September 1. The pres

Mr. Hullltiew Qunrrlcr, prAritont of
tho Dt-laplaln Dry Goods Company, and
president of the Wheeling chamber of
commerce, has returned from an ex
tended biwlncES trip In the eust. "White
away from Wheeling. Mr. Quarrier
went to Baltimore and had a tall: with
tho Baltimore & Ohio people regarding
the prospect* for the erection of the
long promised new passenger station of
this ro?d? In Wheeling.
His talk was not satisfactory from the
point of view of people who have tired
seeing tho "little frame station around
tho corner" on t)ie South Hide, but at
the same time Mr. Quarrier adinlt\
that the reasons for wunt of action by
the railroad company are good ones,
and lie, as a business- man, would pur
sue the course followed by Messrs.
Cowen and Murray.
Receiver Cowen admitted that Wheel
ing deserves a passenger station com
mensuate with Its importance as- a city
Jf the second elans and?which Is more
to the point?as one of the best throe
shipping points on the Baltimore
Ohio .system. Mr. Cowen, however, said
that the receivers were not prepared)
to make a large expenditure of inaney
at this time. Tho war scare has1 un
settled financial1 matters to a larger ex
tent In the eastern money centers than,
haw been felt In this community, and a
result is that tho receivers have not
considered it a good business" move to
invest further large sums of inaney.
As. Mr. Coweiv expressed it, "sueh a

So the new station remains tho un

FOR USE IN THE SCHOOLS.
Board of Education May Get Bids on
interest has been aroused as to
wvCat 'action the board of education
<would take relative to the oiler of a fire
extinguisher company to furnish the
public schools with Its apparatus, but a
member of the board last night stated
?that no action would be taken. Thcr of
fer of the company was referred to the
committee on'buildings and grounds, but
tills committee and the board, in fact,
came to the conclusion that if apparatus
were to be purchased, it would be 'best
first to get bids from other companies.
In yesterday's Intelligencer, "Sixth
Warder," asked for light on the board's
action. The board holds its regular
meeting on Thursday evening, and no re
port Is expected on rhe fir* apparatus,
other than that of deciding to fit the
.schools with the apparatus only after
competing companies have been -heard

there was nrenter confidence and a few,
