MIXING SHARES B1!!:.IK.
La Rose and Ni pissing Sell Of
Under Pressure and Rumors.
There was great excitement on the curb market
yesterday when La Rose and Niplsslng Mines, two
of the most prominent mining stocks dealt in
there, Buffered a severe slump. The two Issues
have been Felling recently around S and II I*.1 *. re
spectively. L,a Hose fcn>en<?d yesterday nt T' and
quickly broke to under T. Great quantities of the
stock were thrown on the market and the prlea
continued to fall rapidly until It touched 5%.
Some supporting orders then appeared under which
the stock rallied to above 6. The Improvement
continued to the end. the closing price being 6V a
net loss of S of a* point for Jhe day. The trans
actions were 120.000 shares.
Nlpissing. which Is closely allied to I-a Hose, tlie
interests In both being practically the same, broke
in sympathy with the latter, declining rapidly from
IIS. the opening price, to 9»«. It then rallied over
a point, closing: finally at 11. a net loss of \ of a
point on the days transactions, which totalled
22.000 uhare*.
Various reasons were given for the break in the
two Issues, among them being that two Stock Ex
change houses that have been active in handling
the shares had a falling out and were trying to
square accounts by unloading their holdings and
breaking the market. Still another reason was
that there was some dissension in the board of di
rectors of on« of the companies. This was de
nied, however. In authoritative quarters, where it
was said that the break tn the stocks was probably
due to some large holder having had to let go of
his stock.
On September 20 the Xipissing Mines Company
increased its quarterly dividend from 3 to 5 per
cent and also declared an extra dividend of 2V*
per cent. Instead of the usual 2 per cvnt extra dis
bursement, thus placing the stock on a 30 per cent
yearly dividend basis.
STEAMSHIP LINE BID IN.
Metropolitan Expected to Pass at
Once to Morse.
PJoston. Oct. B.— John W. McKinnon, a member
of the board of reorganization managers of the
Metropolitan Steamship Company, bid in the com
pany for J2.500.000 at the foreclosure sale here to
day, an.i. if the plans of the board are carried out,
the line will pas 6 at once to Charles W. Morse
and affiliated Interests.
The terms of the reorganization of the Metro
politan Steamship Company, as outlined to-day by
tl c managers— George F. Shaw. Henry Hornblower
and John W. McKinnon— provide that the new
encapaajr shall have J3.000.000 stock. J3.W3.000 of 5
per cent thirty-year first mortgage bonds andJSOO,-
M 0 per tent notes. The new bonds are Issued in
exohanße for the company's outstanding Indebted
neas of $-..Vj9.000 l> per cent bonds, on which interest
has 1 een in default for a year. The managers also
stated that the defaulted interest, amounting to
S'.2."..'>n). would be paid in new stock at par, while
the remaining JaOO.uuO bonds, together with $600.0"»
in notes, would be issued to take care of fU)M,7SO
of preferred debt and receivers" certificates. Tho
remainder of the 12,215,977 floating debt, which
amounts to H. 191.52". represents unsecured claims
which are to be paid for in new stook.
It was sHid to-day that a majority of the claims
■rere purchased by the Morse interests some time
atro and would be at once converted into new
stock. It was the expectation here, after the auc
tion, that Mr. Morse would be elected president of
the reorganized company, together with a friendly
board of directors.
Ti:e Metropolitan Line whs one of the companies
in the Consolidated Steamship combination, and
passed into the hands of a receiver soon after the
larger company failed, two years ago. The com
pany is an old one and for mnny years maintained
a freight line between this city and New York.
Soon after it had passed into the Morse control
for the first time it entered the passenger service
with the turbine steamers Harvard and Yale.
Just before the auction sale to-lay a notice
whs read from the Clyde Steamship Company
stating that it had reserved full possession of
I i» r 4.'.. North River, New York.
GRAND TRUNK'S NEW MOVE.

Haven and Candian Pacific Alliance.
N.w Hav»n, Oct. f.— The Grand Trunk Railway
Company, it was said to-day, has secured an option
on tli* Providence ft I>an!e'.son line, probably
with the view of connecting th<» N>w I^ndnn
Northern and th*> Wrmnnt Central system with Its
mum line through Canada.
The new plan is probably intended to strengthen
th" (Jrani Trunk against future connection of tho
Kew Haven with tho Canadian Pacific, especially
now that the New Haven has secured definite con
trol nf the Boston & Maine The connection with
Providence would require .he building of a line
westward from Danlelson, Conn., some twenty-five
miles in length, reaching the Now I>ondon North
ern, which is under a Grand Trunk lease.

SSBSSi CENTRAL'S SALE
George F. Baer Describes Prompt
Action of Mr. Morgan. ,
The interesting story, not heretofore published,
of the reasons governing the acquisition in 1901 of
control of the Ceutml Hailroad Company of New
jersey by the Philadelphia & Reading Railway
Company, and the prompt an-i decisive action of
Mi. Morgan In lii« matter, is given in the steno
graphic record, just completed, of the recent testi
mony of Qeorge F. BatT, president of tho Reading,
In tho government suit against the so-called coal
ropds.
Mr. Haer »aid that the purchase had been made
not with the object of stlfilnj? competition. Jnit
to enable tn*> Keadinc to "conipet'' with the people
that had us by the throat In New fork Harbor."
The Residing nnd the Oritral of New Jersey, be
continued, were not parallel and competing roads
In any sense of the term. It was essential for th r »
Reading, and also for the Baltimore &. Ohio, to get
to New York over the New Jersey Central, which
in Mr. Haer's opinion has the l>cst terminal facili
ties i', this harbor. At various times efforts had
l»ern mad., to unite the Heading and the New
Jersey Central.
In December, 1900, Mr. Baer testified, he was told
that the men controlling the New Jersey Central
were ready to sell their holdings, and that an
offer for the stock had been made by the Haiti
more & Ohio. This Information he promptly com
municated to Mr. Morgan, who was then the voting
trustee of the Reading company, telling him that
it would be the ruin of u u - Re-ading If a hos
tile company should get control of the property
or if the Baltimore & Ohio could control the Read-
Ing's terminals at New Vorktl. Following Mr.
Morgan's instructions. Mr. Baer prepared a re
port, which he submitted to the banker, who held
It under consideration for a few days. Mr. Bacr s
testimony continues:
"When I got home one night, in Heading, there
was a call at the telephone, and 1 went to the
•phone, and Mr. Morgan was there, telling me to
come to New York immediately— that 1 must come
On at once about that Jersey Central business. I
w.nt to New York the next morning. I saw Mr.
Morgan and told him that if ha thought the finan
cial plan was sound and he could back it— it in
volved that collateral trust mortgage, you know,
and the borrowing of money— l would be re
sponsible for the rest of It; that I thought it was
sound.
"He said to me, 'What do you think is a fair
price" I said. 'I have named what I think Is the
fair price in there.'
"He culled for Mr. Baker, who was the chairman
of th<ir lommtttee, or a leading man In It. Mr.
Baker c»mu over, and we sat down and dickered
for about five minutes, until Mr. Baker said they
would take 160; I said I thought I would advise that,
and I went to the 'phone and called up Mr. Welsh
and Mr. Harris, who were, with myself, a majority
of the executive committee.
"They said, 'yes, 1 and the deal was closed. That
is the whole story. We did not even make a
writing about it. Mr. Baker said he would under
take himself, with Mr. Maxwell and his triends, to
deliver us a majority of the stock. I do not know
what further I tan say about it." *

SAY RATES FAVOR EASTERN FIRMS.
Western Manufacturers' Complaint Heard by
Interstate Commerce Commission.
Seattle, Oct. B.— The Interstate Commerce Com

tion Bureau and the Tacoma Traffic Association
against the Northern Pacific and the Great North
ern Railroad companies. Seattle and Tacoma a.-k
for a reduction or eastbound rates on manufact
ured poods. Seattle and Tacoma manufacturers
say that under present conditions they cannot
sell their goods much beyond the Cascade Moun
tains, owing to the advantageous freight rau-s
enjoyed by the Eastern shippers.
I^arge Eastern concerns, shipping on favored
rates, are alleged to be able to sell in territory
that under a readjustment, it is asserted, would
properly belong to Coast cities. Reductions In
rates from Eastern cities to interior points have
been made frequently, while the rates from the
Coast to the interior remain unchanged.

TO PREVENT TOBACCO FRAUDS.
Treasury Issues Instructions for Proper
Classification.
Washington. Oct. 8.-Strict Instructions for a
proper classification of tobacco, with resulting
benefit to the revenue, were issued to-day by Act-
Ing Secretary Hllles. The action follows advices
that recent examinations of tobacco invoiced as
filler have disclosed a considerable quantity of
wrapper in tho shipments.
Wrapper tobacco is taxed at $1 s:,. as is filler to
bacco when mixed or packed with more than 13
per cent of wrapper tobacco, but unstemmed t'ller
tobacco with less than 15 per cent of wrapper is
taxed only 33 cents. Treasury oSciala have be
lieved for some time that the government was
not getting ali the duty It should receive on wrap
per tobacco, and seizures will be made in any cases
of fraud.
When an examination of packages ordered into
the appraisers' stores shows l per cent or more
Of wrapper in each of two or more bales, examina
tion will be made of a further quantity equal to
the original number of packages designated for
examination, If two or more bales are found to
contain 1 per cent or more of wrapper in each
bale, the entire importation will be examined.
EFFORT TO SAVE POTASH TRADE.
German Syndicate Attempting to Retain Part
of American Market.
Berlin. Oct. B.— A committee headed by Herr
Krhudekupe. manager of the export department of
the German potash .syndicate, expects to start for
N**w York <>n October 21 for t!.e jmrpor-e of nego
tiating direct with the American fertilizer com
panies in the hope of saving p;\rt of the American
market tor the syndicate's products. The syndi
cate has controlled the potash business of the
world, and it is now in danger of losing the whole
American market, amounting to HO per cent of
the export trade, valued at fT.QsVjttfll either to (he
German mines outside the syndicate or to mem
bers of the syndicate who contracted heavily with
American fertilizing companies whil<> the sj ndi
cate was temporarily dissolved.
The syndicate managers, who are backed by a
group of the principal banks of Berlin and the
holders "f the stocks and bonds i>f the potash
companies, luge the passing of Imperial legislation
nt th>- next session of the Reichstag which w i.l
prevent the fulfilment of tlio American contracts
by levying a producing tax. operative after tbfl
mines are sold. The view of the government is
that no discriminating legislation against Ameri
can Interests should be passed while the tariff
relations betwen the two countries an* in suspense.
