Oil Cart Overturned. In a derail
ment of two freight cars from the
Rock Ialand switch tracks at Fourth
and Federal streets Saturday morning
"a loss was sustained of over 3,000 gal
lons of gasoline from the Standard Oil
company's tanks, when the cars In
their fall down the embankment, car
ried away the feed pipe to the large
tank. Immediately after the accident
the fire department and police author
ities were notified and for several
hours the Standard Oil company's
property was surrounded by policemen
and firemen guarding against possible
Fparks. On account of the fluid form
ing a gas almost immediately, the
smallest Fpc.rk or a man smoking
would have doubtless caused a devas
tating explof ion. A line was thrown
around the tank for some distance
and every one warned away from the
clangor zone and cuutloncd not to
smoke while in the Immediate vicinity
of the plant. The escaping fluid filled
the gutters and eewers, und for a time
fears for an explosion within the sewer
were entertained by Chief Denser,
from the gas trying to expand within
the sewer' narrow confine, but his
tears were rot realized. When the
cars were derailed they toppled over
the embankment and started rolling
toward tho tanks. The heavy weight
wrenched the feed pipe from tho con
very representative delegation, and
one that will most creditably repre
sent the state of Iowa.

Investors Suffer Through Failure of the United'
States Independent Telephone Company
at Rochester, New York
r "With a great blare of trumpets this
company started out in this city and its
investors included not only men of large
wealth and many society women, bnt per
sons of slender means. Then the Mercan
tile Electric Co. of New York City, which
was absorbed, was generally supposed by
the investors to have a franchise to lay its
wires in the streets of New York City and
get a share of the immense telephone busi
ness in the metropolitan district. As a
matter of fact, the franchise was merely
a burglar alarm permit, the Mercantile
Co. being a concern promoted by some of
the men formerly identified with the
Equitable Life Assurance Society. With
this burglar alarm permit the company
was reorganized into the New York Inde
pendent Telephone Co. and its capital was
also $50,000,000. Then seemingly to
strengthen the first $50,000,000 merger,
the burglar alarm permit of the other
$50,000,000 company, composed of dum
mies, was taken over, and the securities
unloaded on the public. A tremendous
amount of water was injected and those
on the inside advised all their patrons to'
buy at 80, as the stock was then quoted.'
Even servant girls and day laborers put
their savings into the stock. Presently it
started on its record breaking slide to
1314. The common stock (mere voting
trust certificates) started in at 55 and
went dead at 3. Then the small investors
woke up and finally got out an injunction
against the corporation, which shortly
went into bankruptcy." New York
