RECEIVER FOR CORDAGE CO. Bondholders Take Its Affairs Into Federal Courts. ALL PLANTS SHUT DOWN Has Long Done Business at a Loss, and Has Made Attempt to Dissolve Itself. Th*> " Standard Cordare Company, a $2,500,009 corporation, commonly known as the Cordage Trust, and the £ucc«ts«=or. three times removed, of th« old National Cordape Company, the failure of which, ju?t seventeen years ago, brought about the panic of ISC was placed in the hands of - a receiver yesterday, after an lnvoluntary !*j>etltion in bankruptcy had been filed against it in the United States District Court by three creditors, with claims ag srre<tatinp BJNI Judge Hough appointed Lindsay Russell. a lawyer, of No. Hi Broadway, receiver for the company, with a bond of $100,000. Mr. Rustell said yesterday afternoon that from the brief examination he had been able to make of the firms affairs its assets, in *ludin« the plants in Brooklyn. Boston, and Elizabeth. N. J . were about $1.400.»oo. •rid the liabilities approximately IMIMts. From this It would appear that the credit ors, -who. with the exception of a few merchant creditors with claim? aggregat ing less than HfiOQ, are the holders of the company's outetandinc J2.505.373 first mort rafre 5 per cent bonds and $::.*7i.t*7 5 per cent income bonds, would pet less than £i per cent of the amount of their claims. Action of the Bondholders. The bondholders who filed the bankruptcy petition against the company were Jacob Fleischhauer. Philip H. E. >>>«<«? and John Allen, who hold bonds of the par value of CJffl. Behind them in the move ment- however, it was eald on good au thority, were bankinc interests represent ing holders of large amounts of both classes of bonds, who are desirous of hav ing the affairs of the company wound up Is the regular way through a federal re ceiver, rather than through voluntary dis solution, as ptauosea by the directors. The latter, it will be remembered, on April 12 applied to the state courts to nave the company placed in voluntary dissolu- ; tion, and Justice Blanchard in the Supreme Court siened an order to show cause why the company should not be dissolved. In j their petition the directors said that Tor years the company had been doing bust mss at a loo*, and that the deficit iMIIMWIiI to JGS!,3^ on September 30. BOS.. ■XiMf also declared that none of the plants was in operation, a.v! consequently there was no net income to pay the interest on the mortgage bonds, amounting to $14"."" » y#ar. The proceeding instituted yesterday su l__ 1.11 this action, but. according to an officer of the company, application will be made at once to have the receivership va cated on -the ground that the petition for voluntary dissolution had already been approved by Justice Blanchard and by the Attorney General of the etate. In the involuntary bankruptcy petition filed yesterday the creditors alleged that SSI April 1, 1206. the Standard Cordage Com pany executed a mortgage to secure an i^sue of $£.oP0.<«00 '•' bonds payable In iwenty-five years, of which *2,471.€K were issued and are- now outstanding. This is a second User there being a prior lien of 52.8CC.000. and according to the petition ers the property securing the second lien is not worth as much as the amount of the drat mortgac-" It is also alleged in the petition that for the last three years or more the com pany has been managed in a wasteful and extravagant manner, so that there have been heavy losses each year and the com pany, it is Raid, is insolvent. The petition *ets forth further that on April I the com vany committed an act of bankruptcy by Ihe payment, while insolvent, of (Alls to first mortgage bondholders. This sum. the petitioners say. was for in terest Owe October 1, 1909, on the first mort gage bonds, and was paid, they declare, j out of the free assets of the company. It •nsis also alleged that the corporation had : liabilities aggregating more .ban J2.400.0Vt »-! d that its various plants were not worth more than JJLOOO.OOO. \\..i;man & Wollman. of No. -' Broad street, are counsel for the petitioning cred itors and also for the receiver. According to Mr. Russell, the quick assets b€ the company include $170,000 cash in Vianks. 5125,<!"0 stock on hand in the vagous plants and billr receivable of about 525.0 W. Negotiations, he said, had also been com jileted for tb* sale of th* Chelsea property Ii Massachusetts for $80,400. As regards the plants, he said that while it would X'iobab!y take between 53.W9.W0 and f 4.000.000 to replace them, they probably could not l>e sold in the present depressed condition «,f the cordage business for more than JJ.fOC'XtOO. The first mo.tgage bonds are quoted nom l!.a'i!y around H. Interest on them was de faulted on Ai.ril i. mil at which time the jnanagemert sent a circular to the bond- Jiolders requesting them not to institute < i\ '■■-!)!,, proceedings, as an attempt was lo be made to straighten out the company's affairs without a receivership. The com |.«n\ continued to lose money, however. n:id one after another Its plants were cosed down until none was in operation.

MAY 4. 1.010. BLAMES GOLD PRODUCTION Massachusetts Board Says It Is Cause \ of High Prices. Boston, May 3.— A marked increase in the world's gold supply and extravagance and waste, public and private, are the principal reasons Riven for the high cost of living by a special state commission which has been investigating the subject for eight weeks. On© of the most interesting conclusions is that the tariff, trusts and .trade unions cannot be regarded as direct or active causes of the' recent general, advance of prices. Although agreeing that the tariff, is not a contributory factor, tin- commis sion Is of the opinion that when the tariff is further revised the expediency of re movinjr the. duties on food products should be carefully considered. The commission expressed the opinion that the tariff should be taken out of politics and placed on a business basis, as in Germany. In regard to combinations, the commis sion also feels that, while they cannot be held responsible for the present conditions, constant vigilance with reference to the action of combinations dealing with the necessaries of life is doubly incumbent.

CRITICISM OF PLAN.— Army officers are greatly exercised over the prospect of an amendment of the conditions prescrib ing an annual physical test. A tentative scheme was outlined a month or more hko and has been under trial by officers sta tioned at Fort Leavenworth. Fort Myer and the Army War College, In Washing ton. Department commanders and the ottl cers who took part In the trial ride or walk have made reports, and a special com ment has been made- by the surgeon Kn eral. These make up a voluminous mass of literature now under consideration by the General Staff. Some criticism has been made by officers on account of this con sultation of individual views. They fear that it is not contributing to discipline to allow army officers to criticise .an order and to assist in its composition. They be-. lieve, an order should be prepared after due consideration by those in authority and issued to the officers who are required to obey It without question. The .Titles say that the present proceeding will pro duce discontent, because no order requir ing physical exercise Is bound to meet with unanimous approval. The report of the. surgeon general on the subject is Interesting. It points out some of the. defects In the phraseology of the tentative order. Attention Is called to the fact that the army engineers appear to be specially excused from the requirement to walk or ride. The medical officers believe, that this exception should be extended to senior *taff officers, those who compose the permanent personnel, and whose duties are not more Actively military than are those of army engineers in charge of river and harbor work.

The principal criticism of the new order j springs from the* fact that the require | Befits are not sufficiently elastic; that they are too binding, and fail to anticipate In clemency of weather calculated at certain seasons of the year to make walking or i riding the distance prescribed for six days ; in the week Impossible. There is general i approval of the proposition to have regu lar physical exercise*, but this is consid j ered as having its limitations, and. ac i cording to the surgeon general, there should, be an avoidance of anything which may lead to excesses in that particular for the sake of causing retirements. While it Is desirable to help promotion. It is i pointed out that this should not be at the expense of retiring officers who are pro , Relent professionally and useful In the dis charge of their duties. General I> % onar<l Wood, who comes to WashlnKton as chief of »tan*. will presumably have much influ ence In the final preparation of the order. He is ono Of the conservatives who believe that due allowance should be made for «>;•< and for the Influences of climate in the case of officers stationed In the tropics At the same time, General \V.*>d is a tlrm believer In regular physical exercise. The army Is awaiting the amended order with considerable anxiety, especially as It Is known that the Secretary of War believes that the existing requirements are not sufficient.
