Stock Dormant Since January, 1904,
Will Pay 2 Per Cent Yearly .
The directors of the United States Bteel Cor
poration yesterday decided to resume the pay
ment of dividend* on the common stock, at the
rate of 2 per cent a yaar. Their action came as
• welcome surprise to Wall Street, which had
not generally looked for ihta step before the
October meeting of the board, and there were
indications that the final decision to place the
stock a pain ln the dividend-paying class was
taken at yesterday afternoon's meeting, and not
before that time. The declaration, which was
the first since the fall of 1903. included two divi
dendß. each of one-half of I per cent, one be
ing for the quarter ended March 31, and the
ether for the quarter ended June 30. Both divi
dends are to be paid on October 1 /rom the sur
plus net earnings for the six months ended June
#• to stockholders of record on September 8.
The board also declared the usual dividend for
the quarter on the preferred stock. 1»4 per cent,
payable on August SO.
Th» quarterly statement of operations of the
pteel corporation, issued after the meeting of
the director* and after the close of the stock
market, shews net earnings of $40,125.(183, the
Unrest for any three months in the history of
the corporation, comparing with the previous
rewi of $37,662.^*7 for the ApHl-May-Juns

until a typewritten statement bearing: upon the

was said on high authority later in the after
noon that the proposition to resume dividends on
the common stock had been unanimously recom

Books To Be Sold at Two Cents a
Mile After September 1.
The Pennsylvania Railroad Company on Sep
tember 1 will place on sale 1.000-mile tickets at
the flat price, of $20, or two cents a mile, and
these tickets will be valid on all its lines east of
Pittsburg and Erie.
The Interchangeable mileage book, at present
the only form of mileage bold by this company,
is valid over six railroad systems besides the
Pennsylvania, but is non-transferable, and
therefore requires a deposit of $10 to guarantee
Its exclusive use by the purchaser. The new
ticket will be accepted for travel upon this com
pany's lines only, upon presentation by any one,
making it available for use by individuals, firms,
families cr associations.
The management has also decided to reduce
the maximum one-way fares to two and a half
cents a mile upon ail passenger traffic east of
T*lttsburg and Erie, although under its charter
the company has a right to maintain a charge
of three cents a mile for through passengers and
three and one-half cents for way passengers.
This will go into effect not later than Novem
ber 1.
The present Interchangeable mileage ticket,
provided the other railroads Interested are will
ing, will bo continued on sale.
PETERS HITS AT JEROME.
Alderman Calls for Action by Others
Against Ice Trust.
Alderman Peters, at yesterday's meeting of the
Board of Aldermen, introduced a resolution calling
on the District Attorney of Kings County to take
action against the Joe Trust.
The alderman's resolution was a severe arraign
ment of District Attorney Jerome. He said Jerome
would do nothing, that Jerome had declared no
evidence of criminality on the part of the Ice Trust
had been present**! to him and had suggested that
the state authorities look into the matter.
Alderman Peters seemed to think that almost any
attorney, excepting the District Attorney of New
York County, could find some legal means to haul
the Iw Trust into court.
Speaking to the resolution. Peters declared that
If h* had the power he would Indict every member
of the American Ire Company. Then he wandered
into reference to "the gigantic fraud perpetrated at
the last election."
'Is this ice? " veiled Alderman Dowling.
Resuming- his former subject. Peters declared that
"an honest District Attorney" ought to seek a
chance to prosecute rich thieves as well as poor
on«\"=. The resolution, after being amended to in
clude the district attorneys of other counties in the
greater city, except New York, was adopted.

Sorthern, Sni/s firr-Prmdcnt.
St. Paul. July 81.— During a hearing: to-day
on merchandise rates In Minnesota, before the
State Railroad and Warehouse Commission, R.
I. Farrtnsrton. vice-president of the Great North
ern Railway, made the statement that, no matter
how great the earnings of the Great Northern
Railway, President James J. Hill had laid down
the rule that stockholders should never receive
a higher dividend than 7 per cent.
Mr. Farrinjrton also said that improvements
were paid for out of the surplus until a new
Issue of stock became necessary, when stock was
Issued ln blocks of $25,000,000. Mr. Farrington
was asked by Commissioner Staples what be
came of the $'.'5,1X10.000 realised from the sale
of stock.
"This goes back Into the treasury to make
good the expenditures for Improvements made
from the surplus," said Mr. Farrington, "and to
pay loans which are frequently made for a short
time. James J. Hill has always made it a rule
that not over 7 per cent shall t>e paid in inter
est on stock. The use of surplus for new lines
is simply a temporary use of treasury assets,
borrowing, as it were, from the surplus till the
stock is latter sold."
Some discussion as to accumulated surplus
caused the matter to be looked up. and it was
shown that the Great Northern now has on
hand a surplus of over $19,000,000.
MEAT LAW WELL TAKEN,
Failure to Ask Inspection Due to
Ignorance, Mr. Wilson Says.
Washington, July 3i.— Secretary Wilson returned
Department of Agriculture to-day after a
short trip to Richmond, Va., where he inspected
the plant of a meat extract establishment. The
Secretary said that the meat inspection regula
tions had been well received by the packers and
the trade generally; tliat most at the large and
some small establishments throughout the coun
try were putting their houses In order for the new
dispensation, but that many small establishments
had so far failed even to apply for inspection,
although the department has advertised the fact
that such places must have it or go out of inter
state or foreign trade.
"Many slaughterers of food animals and pre
parers of meat food products which enter into
interstate or foreign trade have apparently not
realized that unless they have federal inspection
and the legal label by October 1 their interstate
and foreign trade will be closed," he added.
Representatives of the various railroad systems
of the country have been in consultation with the
Secretary, and it is believed at the Department
of Agriculture that plans have been adopted
which will effectually prevent the interstate or
foreign transportation of uninspected meat,
"It is not the desire to evade the law which
causes certain dealers and firms to fail to arrange
for Inspection." said the Secretary. "It is rather a
failure to gTaap the wact that the law applies to all
food products Into which meat enters in whole or in
part. Why, we had one firm which thought the
law would not affect them because they put out a
compound composed of lard and cottonseed oil.
We told them that unless they had the government
inspection and the government label the product
could not be sold in interstate or foreign trade after
October 1 next. We told them further that the
government label would show that their product
contained cottonseed oil.
The Secretary was asked if such products as
canned pork and beans and mincemeat would be
barred from interstate trade unless their prepara
tion was supervised by federal inspectors, and his
answer was emphatically in the affirmative. The
meat inspection law provides that no false or decep
tive labels shall be used, and from the statements
of Secretary Wilson it is gathered that hereafter
the American people will know what is ln the
can if they take the trouble to read the label.
PLEASED BY WELLS-FAiGo STATEMENT
Representative of Minority Stockholders
Tni:;k> C •-■!■":•.:: ■•■r.% Proved.
Walter C. Stokes, of the Stock Exchange house
of Walter C. Stokes & Co., which is leading the
movement of minority stockholders of Wells, Fargo
& Co. to secure a lareer dividend on th«lr shares,
expressed himself yesterday as well satisfied with
the statement Issued on Monday night by the man
agement. He said in part:
Th*y have now given us all that we asked for.
except the 16 per cent dividend. We asked them for
a statement of earnings for the last five years.
which we said would show that the average earn
ings over that period amounted to SO per cent of
the capital stock. They have given us a state
ment of earnings for six years, which discloses
average net receipts aggregating 32 per cent. Thus
they have proved that our estimate was within the
mark.
As to their valuation of the assets and their dec
laration that these have not been undervalued, we
still claim that the valuation is, at any rate, very
conservative. Of course nobody would wish to
quarrel with conservatism like this, but I will give
you one Instance to show that the assets are prob
ably worth a great deal more than 120,777.710. The
list of stocks and bonds are valued at cost price.
The company's holdings in the Wells-Fargo Nevada
National Bank is 20.000 shares, valued at $3,no».000.
which is JISC a share ot 6tock. Now this mock
is on a regular 8 per cent basis and the bank Is
doing well. The last price I heard for the stock
was $200 bid, with no offers. Supposing that the
quotation is only $200— it may be much more — then
the 20,000 shares are worth $4,000,000. and this one
item adils $1,000,000 tr the total of assets.
