CANADIAN PACIFIC "SOO."
Not the Canadian Soo at Sault
Ste Marie, but the Canadian Pa
cific Soo railway company which
Minneapolis is just now pelting.
A New York dispatch in the Min
neapolis Journal is as follows:
Canadian Pacific was bought
yesterday for Montreal account
and probably for London as well.
It is not thought there will be
any difficulty in placing the new
issue of stock as the London
market will readily take it.
Canadian Pacific stock is own
ed almost exclusively in Canada
and Great Britain, and its div
idends are paid where the stock
The Canadian Pacific owns a
large majority of the "Soo"
stock, and receive whatever div-
,S idends are paid upon it. Thomas
Lowry and his Minneapolis
friends have been having lots of
fun kicking the minority stock
up and down in Wall street, and
playing foot ball at the expense
of the good people of Minneapolis
There are always a lot of fool
Americans who would sooner
pay freight to an Englishman or
some sort of a foreigner than to
their own neighbors Oand the
surest way for a man to provoke
the enmity of his fellow Ameri
cans is to go and and buy out
English or German stockholders,
and begin paying dividends over
the bank counters in St. Paul or
Minneapolis instead of sending
bank drafts to Montreal, London
No self-respecting American
can afford to keep still while his
neighbor is collecting freight
moneys and putting the same
back into American railroads
and steamships. No American
having "hoss" sense will own
railroads in his own state and ex
pect to keep the good will of his
Thep'Soo" railroad is IT. None
of its controlling board of direc
tors can be reached by any pro
cess of any court in the United
States, and its dividends flow as
easily and naturally to London
as do those of the diamond mines
of South Africa. Even the abor
iginals of White Earth are scrap
ing their feet on the front porch
of the Canadian Pacific Soo

Miner Meets Death in a Particularly
Butte, Mont., May 8.Emll Bouthel
ler, a miner in the Cambria mine, met,
a horrible death yesterday, beingj
slowly crushed between the side of thei
shaft and the top of the cage until all
life was extinct. Three miners riding
with Boutheller at the time of the ac
cident saw him reel, apparently as in
a fit, and the next minute his head
and shoulders vanished from view.
The pressure on Boutheller's body
was terrific, as his feet flew up, and,
striking one of the miners in the
stomach, floored him in agony.
