Secretary of the Nebraska, Kansas & Southern, has closed a contract with representatives of trust companies, of which the Commonwealth Trust com pany of St. Louis Is the leading firm represented, by which the entire issue of the road's bonds on the 170 miles between Garden City and Stockton is taken.' The bonds total 34,250,000. All that is necessary to finally close the deal Is a formal meeting of the directors of the road, and that will be held this month. . The same capitalists have agreed to finance the extension of the line from Stockton to Superior, Neb., on the north and from Garden City south west when the railroad company is ready to undertake them. The in terests taking the bonds made an ex haustive investigation of the probable earnings along the road as well as the cost of construction, and the reports indicate that the Kansas, Nebraska & Southern will develop a rich territory. In addition to a grain carrying traffic it will have considerable manufactur ing business, reaching the sugar beet region at Garden City and the big cement plant at Hogback in Ellis county. The location survey for the road Is being pushed northeast from Garden City, and right of way men are al ready at work. As quickly as the pre liminary work cm be rushed out of the way construction will be started. A number of townships and counties through which the road will pass have voted in aid of the road; and others will do so this month or next. Much enthusiasm is shown all along the line, and the promoters of the road are greatly pleased with the status. Highest Price Ever Paid by Wichita Packing House. Animals Fed on Mixture of Corn and Cotton Seed Meal. 31. P.'S NEW OFFICIAL. C. Ii. Stone Will Be Passenger Traffic Manager. St. Louis, July 16. The position of passenger traffic manager for the Mis souri Pacific-Iron Mountain system, with headquarters in St. Louis, has been created and it will take effect August 1. Vice President C. S. Clarke is expected at headquarters from New Tork on Wednesday, when the official announcement will be made. For some years the traffic department or ganization has provided for a freight traffic manager, with headquarters in St. Louis, but there has been no pas eenger traffic manager, and to make the organization uniform and complete the new office is now established General Passenger Agent C. L. Stone of 'the Louisville "& "Nashville has been electel by the Gould. Lines' manage ment tor the helm of the passenger department, and it is understood there will be no other changes. General Passenger Agent H. C. Townsend. who has been at the head of the Missouri Pacific-Iron Mountain passenger department for twenty-five years and was previously with the Wa bash, will remain in his position, but will be relieved of much of the detail work attaching to such an important office, and he will spend, more of his time in moving over the system and supervising the agencies. Mr. Town Bend's health has been very indifferent of late and he has been recommended to get away from office confinement. He is one of the oldest and most high ly esteemed passenger officials in the country and he is held in the warmest regard by the Goulds and all the offi oials of the Gould system. In railroad and business circles generally he has held the foremost seat of popularity. Mr. Stone, who will occupy the new position, is a strong passenger traffic man. making his record with the Chi cago & Eastern Illinois as general pas eenger agent. Shortly after the death of C. P. Atmore at Louisville, he was offered and he accepted the position of general passenger agent of the Louisville & Nashville, and he is in close touch with the passenger chiefs of all the leading lines in the south et and southwest. He is also popular with the St. Louis passenger fraternity. Assistant General Passenger Agent B. Howard Payne of the Missouri Pa ciflc will, of course, remain under the new regime. The immense mileage of the Missouri Pacific-Iron Mountain has called for a heavy volume of work at the St. Louis general office and Mr, Payne is recognized in the passenger world as a master of detail, with an extraordinary capacity for office labor. He has represented the Gould system at many important traffic conferences and he Is secretary of the St. Louis Association of General Passenger Agents. R. I. IS OCT OF POLITICS.

John Sebastian, general passenger agent of the same road, who was en tertained with President Winchell, said that the Rock Island will not re duce its passenger service on account of the two cent rate laws but has and will Improve it further.

Roosevelt May Adopt It for Railroads of tills Country. Mexico City, July 16. Minister of Finance Jose Yves Limantour, in an interview with the correspondent of the Associated Press, discussed today th." report which recently reached this capital to the effect tat President Roosevelt had under consideration a proposal that the railroad question In the United States be solved by the adoption of the "Mexican Plan." That the president has had such a suggestion under consideration for some time was made evident during the course of the interview, when Minister Limantour declared that some months ago, when he was in Washington, both President Roose velt and Secretary Root questioned him as to the method by which the republic of Mexico had gained con trol of its great trunk lines without in any way causing the railroad com panies or olHcials to surrender any of their rights. "The cardinal principle or tne 'Mexican plan' as you term it," said the minister, "is the' absolute divert ing of railway control from. politics. "The federal power merely exerts a controlling influence over the great trunk lines of the country by the pur chase of a majority of the stock of the principal lines of the republic. Details are left to the directorate .and the executive officers. "Mexico does not want to operate the railroads within' her domain. The scope of tha plan' of the control' only entertains the proposition that the government exercises - a dominating Influence and be in a position to dic tate when an attempt to bring about unjust conditions as to the rates makes itself apparent. - "We believe that' this sort of con trol will be a success." Wichita, July 16. A local packing company has closed a deal with L. W. Robinson of the Robinson Brothers ranch at Towanda for 100 head of prime export beef steers. The steers average 1,300 pounds. Tho price on this shipment of steers is 6 cents per pound on board at To wanda, This is said to be the biggest shipment of high priced beef the lo cal market has ever disposed of. The total price received by the Robinsons for the hundred steers was $3,100, or 581 a head It was at first supposed that the steers were for shipment to the for eign markets, but it was learned from the manager that all the beef would be sold to the local markets Instead of shipping it away for the foreign trade. The price of the steers 6 cents a pound is the highest price ever paid by a Wichita packing house for beef: in fact it is the highest price ever bnught on the local market. The steers have been fed on a mixture of corn and cotton seed meal during the past six months. THE PRISON BRICK PLANT. Is Taxed by Orders From Pittsburg, Topeka and Osawatomie. Leavenworth, July 16.

The creature was about four inches ' in length, white in. color, and exceeding ly lively. For some days Mr. Johnson had been suffering from what a physician diagnosed as indigestion. The pains in his stomach were very severe. He tried various remedies, and at last by advice of Mr. Hester took a dras tic emetic. - The second event in the series of occurrences for Mr. Johnson cul minated last night when he was sum moned to the parental home at Nor wood to join a family meeting with a stranger from Ohio. The visitor was administrator of the estate of an aunt of Johnson who died In Ohio in March last, and who had devised her prop erty to Mr. Johnson and his flvo brothers and sisters.

The suit was brought by the telegraphers to secure an in junction under the -Erdman act, which prohibits corporations from dis criminating against labor organiza tions. They charge the railroad com pany with preventing their agents from securing interviews with the railroad operators and with threaten ing to discharge such of them as join the union, and this course, they as sert, is a violation of the law.

Afterward a short programme of ' Interest to publishers was given. -. On a muddy field Monday afternoon, it took the Topeka Champions but an hour and a half to place the crepe on the door of Jack Holland's Wichita Job bers and to encase the crepe in a neat oval of pallid whitewash. This makes the third consecutive time Topeka has forced the Jobbers to tag along On the losing end of the rope and so far this season the local aggregation of baseball athletes have dished up seven sour doses to the mery ball chasers from Wichita town. May It continue thus. Big Roy Arnold whom some of the fans of Topeka have pronounced N. G. worked in the center of the square and by heady pitching allowed but four of Holland's held apparents to the pen nant to reach first base and none of them had the nerve to try to get further ex cept Augustus Hetling and his trolley slipped eu route and Erwin's throw beat him there. Two solitary bingles were all the heavy hitting aggregation from western Kansas could negotiate. Thes-j came in harmless times and in both cases after two men were out. Roy also surprised the fans in the grandstand by opening the bottle in the seventh inning with a scorching single to center field. This is the first hit for him on the home grounds this season. Mr. Arnold nearly scored. The novelty of running bases was entirely new to hini but he acquit ted himself in this capacity with good gracefulness. This makes two victories for Arnold over the Wichita bunch in three days. At the rate he is going at the present time all of General Sher man's rynonym for war cannot stop him. Frank Dick dished up the pellets for the visiting team. Dick started out. with the speed of a Rusie and the; rnrvA rtf a ivf a tt hpwsnn. in tne nrst ' Inninir three of the Topeka batters .

But that was doing too much. It lasted but two innings, it so happened in the fourth Inning that Ole Olson, the premier second base man of the Western association was the first man to bat. His appeaarnce before the delivery of Mr. Dick was the cause of the first crimp in the of ferings of the pellet dispenser of the foreigners. Arnold attempted to sacri fice Olson to second but he popped the ball right into the hands of Dick, who tried to catch Olson before he return ed to first. The ball was an elevated heave and did not reach terra flrma until it had passed Holland some sixty feet. By this time Olson had reached third. Liawle'-attmpfc-'ta bring Ole in- ort'the squeeze play was frustrated and the runner was caught between the bases. Lawler hit safe as soon as the squeeze fizzled and was forced to second by Dick's generosity to Cap tain Hurlburt. Abbott came to bat with two men on bases and two down and a hit needed to break through the crust of oblivion for a score, spencer ino delivered the goods and Lawler reached home with the first run of the game which alone was sufficient for victory. Erwin hit to left field, but Captain Hurlburt's visions of a score were punctured at the plate by a throw from Milan which caught Hurl burt a country block. Poor coaching! But the run wasn't needed anyway. In the following inning Red Davis mgnlit to sneak around through the courtesy of Mr. Dick and other gen tlemen on tne Visiting team. xvcu started off at first on a pass.

Sommers; WESTERN ASSOCIATION GOSSIP. WHERE THEY PLAY TOMORROW. Topeka at Webb City. Joplin at Hutchinson. . Oklahoma. City at Leavenworth. Wichita at Springfield. Topeka has two postponed games to play with Springfield. These games will be played on the next trip to the Ozark burg, which will mean a double header Saturday and Sunday. If the Champs can take the whole bunch it will put us well up In the race.. Eddie Page, the pitcher of the Mets, who was signed up this spring and then canned only to be resigned, haa been loaned for the balance of the season to Independence, Kan., in the O. A. K, league. . Clark, the young pitcher with the Wichita team, is a very fortunate young man. He is drawing a . good salary with the Jobbers but doesn't have to work. He is carried probably onl yto pitch against Leavenworth and Springfield and never has to work against any other team. Gilbert was expected in time to pitch yesterday's game but as he did not arrive he could not be used. If he gets in in time to work in today's game he will work. He defeated Wichita one game while working in a Joplin uniform. The Joplin News-Herald let the fol lowing fly at the Webb City team: "The Webb City team Is largely a bunch of literary stars out on a sum mer's vacation. Aside from John Mil ton, the great English boet who Is managing the team. Bobbv Burns, thn Scotch jlngler, and Gray, who wrote the famous Elegy, are playing wlth the club. Meredith is an English -prose writer of note. Halla is entitled to a great deal of credit for working in Sunday's game, as he was under the weather and al most unable to be on his feet. Between innings several times he said that he was about all in. It is not unlikely that the' Western Association will have a new umpire within a few days. A deal is now on between President Shlvely and Presi dent Holland of the Three Eve league which if consummated will bring about a traoe or iuckmann for Bobby Car ruthers of that league. Carruthers is an old umpire who has worked for years and has had much experienca. He is always recognized as a topnotch- er. lie got away bad with one team in the Three Eye and as Eckman has gotten away to the bad with several of the teams In this circuit it is thought that a trade would work for the mu tual advantage of both leagues. Cy Young is badly disappointed with the showing he made Sunday against the Topeka team. He was worked in the game by Captain Jack Holland upon the request of Bob Lowe, who had heard much about him and was anxious to see him in action. This is the third time this season that the lanky Wichita pitcher has made a poor showing before a scout. When the Sox were in Wich ita Blankenship of Washington was there to see him work and Topeka Dounded him for eleven hits. Leaven worth batted him hard when Heilbro- ner of Cincinnati watched him. Sun day's performance was the third. And yet Cy Is a good pitcher with a record so far this season of winning 18 out of 22 games. Porter, who Is now pitching fjr Springfield secured a tryout with Jay Andrews early in the spring but failed to convince the doctor that he was a good pitcher. The real reason that Nig Perrlne was traded to Minneapolis was because Nig was not hitting the ball with regularity. Mike Jacobs left Topeka Sunday night for Leavcnwortn. As eoon as President Shlvely heard of the trouble with Eck- . mann at mat pmce ou cm Jacobs over there to use his efforts in promoting peace among the pelligerent populace. Prpsident D. M. Shively has written - to all the managers and club owners and umpires in the association making a ruling that in the case of a passed ball a runner has the right to score tr-nm third base no matter whether the catcher can throw him out or not. This rule was made as no backstop in the association is removed 90 feet from tho home plate as specified in the rules of the game. As yet, however. President Shively has made no ruling as to the game at Wichita where Captain Hurl hurt was thrown out by Bayless on a passed ball. The backstop at Wichita is only 35 feet removed while at Okla homa City it is still closer. Hutchinson News: Doc Andrews re cently Bent In an inquiry to the Sport ings News asking for an opinion on ths decision at Wichita which robbed Hutchinson of the game July 1. 1 It will be remembered that Cy Young after taking his windup . threw the ball- to third base 'but Umpire Jacobs declared that it wasn't a balk because Wilson. who was at bat, had stepped out or nis box. The editor of the Sporting News says that Jacobs was wrong and that Hutchinson should have been given the same. At the time Andrews asked Jacobs to call time and wire to Shively for instructions but the Irish Mike refused. MeetrnattheChautang.na.
