QUEER WISCONSIN BILL
miV EH FOR RAILROADS.
Would. Allow One Road to Condemn
Tracks and Proper!?/ of Others.
One of the moat curious pieces of railway legis
lation ever devised has recently been Introduced
into the Wisconsin Legislature, where It is at pres
ent In the committee stage. Ths principal claw??
of this bill is as follow;":
When .< railroad corporation shall require any
JA:i<is. trackage rights or other property which any
oth»»r railroad corporation pha'.l have previously
acquired in any manner. such lands. trackage
richls or other property may be acquired in i'"»
same manner as the lands of other?: but the «**»"
road ' ''im:nlF«ion. an<i not the courts, primarily
•hall in nich ra°sea determine the question of tn<"
necessity of taking ewh lands, trackage righta or
other property, or any part thereof, and nil tnn
term.* an*" conditions relating to and governrna
such taking and the us* and ejoymer.t of th» lands.
trackage rights or other property sought to be ."o
taken, as veil as the compensation therefor.
This measure, if enacted Into law. will apparently
enable any railroad desiring to obtain entrance
into a town or city entered by another road to ron
dfmn and tak<» over the ownership of such portion
as if may need of th<» tracks, right or nay and
terminals of the other road, which will thereupon
be compelled to rr.ak* terms with th*» newcomer in
order Itself to continue to move traffic in ann out
of ti:'- I'lHce. rirre is ,-m example of the posslOßl
tie=; of ihe bill. The only Imp* olty of Wisconsin
is Milwaukee, which is reached by the Chicago &
N'ortwrhtetern. the St. Paul and th* vTisconi«.n i »'
tral. The. latter, however, lias no direct entrant
into M;iwauKe». coming in over the St. Paul a
tracks. But if the bill outlined nbovw should no
come r law. it would seem th« Wisconsin if 1 " 1 ;?;
would be able to condemn s«ch part of tlie. line «*»
the St. Paul, the Northwestern or one of in»
smaller roads entering the. <-iiy as would be con
venient for it« use in cstabliPhfng a terminal <'{ 1 ■
own th^re. __ ,_
The railroad campaign Is still In progrr-s* in
the West and Northwest. South Dakota, rot 11
stance, has passed a bIU fixing passenger rates .-..
two and one-half cent* n mile. Htid has enacted ;i
law compelling the road* to furnish ears, m ii 0 *' 1
a two-cent rasK«>ng.-r rate bill has been signea t\\
the Governor and a bIU Is V-eforo him ving the
Railroad Con:tr<i«!<lon authority to 11 x Join! races
for freight. In Minnesota tlie legislature has
passed bills for the two-cent rate on pussengei
Earea and « 10 per cent reduction on commodity
in!-. but the Governor lias not yet signet them.
SAYS STANDARD' EVADES TAXES.
Authorities of Lak« County, Ind., Begin
Action Against Oil Company.
Chicago. April 16— Taxing authorities of Lake
County. Ind.. have instigated an action against
tha Standard Oil Co:npany of Whiting as a re-
BUlt of investigations. They have discovered,
they say. that the company for four years has
sequestered million* of dollars of valuable prop
erty from tax duplicates.
It is estimated by the officials that the Stand
ard Oil Company should be paying taxes on $40,
000000 of property, when it is assessed on the
tax duplicates for only $3,000,000. The Stand
ard, they say, hns evaded payment of taxes on
eighty-one bouses, bu'.'.t four years ago, which
i! rentt to employes.
Million* of barrels of oil are stored in great
steel tankj and there is improved property
along 1 the Pennsylvania track* amounting to
Sl.ooo.OuO> The Standard has been paying $50.
000 a year, when It should have paid ten time*
that amount, the tax officers pay.

FEARS FOR SOUTHWESTS WHEAT.
B. W. Snow, Chicago Crop Expert, Thinks
Product a Failure.
P. W. Snow, the Chicago crop expert, accord
ing to a special dispatch received hero yesterday
from that city, Is pessimimic on the outlook for
the crops In the Southwest. He says:
The wheat crop of Kansas is In a critical posi
tion. Bugs are everywhere present and Increas
ing rapidly in heavy Southern wheat counties.
Actual damage from bugs Is scarcely apparent
yet, except near the south line of the state, but
they are as numerous as they were In Central
Oklahoma two weeks since, and everything in
dicates a similar result. Dry weather in Injur
ing wheat and permanent damage from this
cause is already apparent. The Oklahoma wheat
crop is a failure), except in th«; extreme north,
where a mall yield might be secured. The
condition for th*» whole territory is hardly
above 25.
From now on until the early fall estimates
and reports of damage to the crops may be ex
pected. In. some parts of the Northwest the
sowing of spring wheat and the planting of
corn have rot yet been begun, but th« next two
weeks will probably see the completion of the
task in all of the states and territories of the
wheat arid corn districts.

Many Improvements.

directors' meeting at th« company's offices, at No.
11l Broadway. Charles M. Schwab, pcrsluent ct
the company, after the meeting, said that In view
of the extensive improvements to the plant and
the large requirement. for money the directors had
felt It (inadvisable to pay any dividend at this tlpae..
Mr. Schwab went on to say that from the be
ginning ha had been against paying any dividend
until the completion of the plant, when the com
pany by divc/slfyinsr its products would not have
to depend on the government for oiders. lie said
th« government was a very uncertain customer,
and that one could never tell what Congress would
do In the matter of armor plate. lifter the com
pany had speii: $5,000,00) to increase the capacity
of its armor plant to 20,000 tons a year, he said, the
government gave them an order for 2,000 tons.
Mr. Schwab raid that the company had already
spent $17,000,000 on extensions, and that when it
was completed, which be expected would be in the
coming fail, it would he the largest steel plant in
the world, employing- thirteen thousand men.
He said th« company would continue to manu
facture armor and battleships for the government,
but that it would not contract to build any mer
chant vessels excepting the special line built by
the Harlan & Holllngsworth Company.
The Bethlehem Steel Corporation eueeeeded the
T ntted States Shipbuilding Company, and acquired

TO INSPECT WATERSHED
STATE AND CITY UNITE.
Controller Metz Will Go Over Fil
tration Scheme with Engineers.

supply of this city. As a result of a conference
en Monday, at which Dr. Darlington, the city
Health Commissioner: John 11. O'Brien, the Water
Commissioner, and Dr. Eugene H. Porter. State
Health Commissioner, were present, a comprehen
sive and permanent plan for the inspection of the
Croton watershed was adopted, and. according to
reports from the State Health Commissioner's of
fice, each of these departments will have a repre
sentative always on the ground to oversee the
Ml square miles comprising the watershed.
To-day Dr. C. F. Bolduan, representing Dr. Dar
lington; Dr. Daniel Jackson, from Mr. O'Brien, and
a representative from the State Department will
meet nt Katonah to formulate plans for thorough
Inspection. Tho state representative, as agreed by
Dr. Porter, wilt be ready at any time to use the
full authority of the state to compel the abate.
ment of nuisances that may be discovered by th«
other men or reported to them by their subordi
nates.
The state has tha power to abate nutsenees. The
city has not. unless It owns the property. As It
does not own the property upon which the most
threatening nuisances are, the presence of the stat»
representative will Insure the most adequate pro
tection. This plan win eliminate all red tape. It
will insure th« prompt suppression of any threat
ened source of contamination.
The city and state authorities now feel that
with this arrangement of state co-operation they
will be able to keep the situation well In hand
until nitration or the. sewering of the watershed
has be»n aei'cmnllahed.

Mr. Lewis, of the Board of Estimate and Appor
tionment, and Mr. Whlttlngton, of his own depart
ment, accompanied by Mr. O'Brien, the Water
Commissioner, will go to Jerome Park Reservoir.
Mr. Metz wants to know whether It will be wise to
allow the preliminary appropriation of 54.000.f00 for
the proposed filtration plant. He doe* not believe
In filtration as the only means for securing a pure
water supply. He said yesterday that Bomo of the
most Injurious germs would escape. Typhoid
bacilli might not be stopped by filtration. In fact,
the repearches of chemists, he said. bad shown that
10 per cent of bacilli in water will get through, any
filter invented, and among this 10 per cent the
typhoid germ was most likely to be.
Mr. Met* said that tho R0(>0.000 asked for was a
small part of what th* whole work would cost.
Chief Engineer De Varona *a!rt that the cost would
be about $11,500,000. but Mr. Metz said It would most
likely to run up to 53Q.080.000. At all event.", he Is go
ing over the ground with his engineers, and will be
guided larger by What they say.

that the valuations offtred by the railway repre
sentative* were Inflated. W. W. Cotton, on be
half of the Barriman system, argued that the

•■f Commerce made: a stand for a reduction of
rat«s from Portland to Spokane and interior ter
ritory, offering as a reason the fact that prsa

sion would not fix the value of roads on the e\i
dence offered between tiie road and contrac
tors.
