The Company is formed to produce a inetai not heretofore made in America "Metallic Tin,", of which 71,248,407 pQunds were last year imported, the gross value of which was $16,746,117. The company will mine the valuable tin deposits owned by it in South Dakota, seven miles from Iron Station, ou the Burlington & Mis souri River R. R., which railroad will Boon be extended through the company's property, the company will erect custom concentrating plants in South Dakota and smelting reduction works at Niagara Kails for the treatment of tin ores generally, •lther those owjied by the company or by ethers, and for the manufacture "of bab bitts, solder and alloys; and for these purposes the company will erect custom concentrating plants wherever a sufficient quantity of ore can be obtained. The property owned by the company comprises over 80 acres of the richest de posits known to exist in South Dakota, where there are reefs of great dimensions containing large quantities of black oxide of tin, than which there is none better or purer In the world. At the lowest price of tin for past ten years, this ore will pay well. But at its price during pant two years the profits will be much greater than those of the best average of copper or gold mines. This company is the pioneer in estab lishing in America the business of mining j and smelting tin. Such rapid strides have been made by the I'nited States in the development of its iron, steel, copper, lead and zinc industries that it now con- ■ trols the market for these metals, as it Boon will for tin also. The company using improved machin ery, new methods and processes con trolled by it, will produce refined tin of or the very best quality without loss in bmeltlng, and, with the abundant supply of ore now available, will produce pun> tin at less cost than ever. The company will purchase tin ores under long term contracts with mine owners generally. j* a recent article Franklin H. Carpen ter, M. D. f M. E., late principal of the school of mines.

New York, Jan. 30.—James J. Hill left here last night for St. Paul. The Press, commenting upon Mr. Hill's departure, says: "The completion of the railroad deal whereby the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul would pass to the control of the Great Northern and Northern Pacific, has been postponed. The plans have not been abandoned, but the interests are so many that time is required to carry the nego tiations to <a successful coadtuion. "The stumbling blocks in the way have been legal aspects of the transfer and the persistence of some large holders to ex act a prohibitive price for their holdings. Persons intimate with the plans of the j Morgan-Hill clique say that the public ! has expected results too quickly. "'They point out that it requires time to perfect every great deal, and that the one in regard to St. Paul will be no ex ception. Yet none asserts that it will not be accomplished—probably when un expected." A\OTHER STORY Tlii* Say» the Deal Ha* Fallen Through. New York Sun Spmctal Service •'ew York. Jan. SO. —A representative of th« Great Northern-Northern Pacific in terest, Is authority for the statement that rhe proposed purchase of. or combiuation with the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railroad, had practically been declared off because a satisfactory basis of negotiation could not be agreed upon. In reply to a question as to whether a direct otpr as "made for the control of the St. Paur road, this representative re plied-: "Overtures were made looking to a defi nite offer.

I wish to answer a most emphatic YES." Referring to Bear Gulch i where the company's property is situated, he in part says: "I have broken speci mens for hours in the vain search to find some part of the vein that did not <?arry tin. 1 only mention tb.it. to show how thoroughly disseminated n is in some de posits, and one which i lecall is compar able for size to the great Homestake mine, and in my opinion is alone capable of employing as many men. It is my opin ion, further, that this tin district, prop erly worked, is capable of supplying all the tin used in the United States, but it must be worked in some such system and scale as the Homestake or Calumet and Hecla. Great as is the development of the gold mining there it will yet be ex ceeded by tin and iron, metals just as use ful if not quite so 'noble.' " The company's initial concentrating plant at its mines will have a daily ca- j pacity of 130 tons of ore, from which I eight to ten tons of high grade concen trates (55 to 60 per cent metallic tin) will be produced and shipped to its electric smelting works to be erected at Niagara Falls, where the electric power will be supplied by the Nigara Fails Power Co., and where the company has secured a I most desirable site for its plant. The K. Y. C. & H. R. R. will run a track di rect to the company's works and in New York there is a market for everything the company produces. The production of tin is one of the few I Industries that shows a steady increase in I price, a diminishing supply and an in creasing demand. The world's production of tin is stead ily decreasing as the old mines are sunk deeper; it was 10,000 long tons less last year than it was five years ago. The I'nited States consumption increased from 3U, 000,000 pounds in 1894 to 71,000,000 pounds in 1599, while the price has ad vanced from 13 cents in 1897 to 2S cents in 1900. was 33 for the preferred and 12 for the common stock. •'The largest individual stockholder in Chicago Terminal & Transfer securities has been for some time the Deutscher. Bank of Berlin. Kuhn, Loeb & Co. have been negotiating with this institution for the transfer of its entire holdings. This was finally accomplished last week. One of the primary purposes of the new man agement will undoubtedly be to bring as many as possible of the leading railroads having terminals in Chicago into the Grand Central station controlled by the Terminal company.

SPORTS A BOOST FOR MINN; Casper Whitney's All-Western Con tains Four Gophers. PRAISE FOR SIX OTHERS! These Are Mentioned an Close Sec- ' / onds for Other Positions— ■ - ! Individual Work. . j The editor of Outing, Casper Whitney, is handicapped in point of timeliness on football information because of the fact that his publication is a monthly, but his standing is so strong as a fair and just writer, that admirers of football will feel disposed to overlook the fact that hie February comment comes late. Mr. Whit •ney, in the current issue of Outing, dis cusses southern football to a considerable length, and comes back again to a final word on the western work of 1900. He first makes up an all-western team, on which he puts four Minnesota men, and then discusses individual play as fol lows: At center, Page of Minnesota, who has played the position for three years, is easily In the lead. Of the other western centers, Scow of Wisconsin and Ely of lowa come next —with very little choice between them. For guards, Riorden of Wisconsin and Dfetz of Northwestern are to be preferred, although Mueller of Minnesota and Flynn of Minne sota are nearly their equals. In the tackle position, Curtis of Wisconsin may be selected for one, while Warner of lowa and Fee and Tweet of Minnesota are so evenly matched for the other position that a selection among them is difficult. As Warner is brilliant as well as steady and experienced, the choice, should be rather given to him. Fell of Chi cago should come next. At end, Aune of Minnesota and Snow of Michigan stand out conspicuously as superior to all others. Next in the list should be placed, without hesitation, Hoyt of Minne sota and Juneau of Wisconsin. Praise for Dobie. Behind the line, in half-back position, he considers a number of men, giving first choice to Larson of Wisconsin and Henry of Chicago, with Sheldon of Chi cago and Van Valkenburg of Minnesota second. For quarter-back he says: There are only two candidates in the west for the position of quarterback. These are Dobie of[ Minnesota and Williams of lowa. Both men are quick and accurate in passing and runners of great swiftness. In all-round play and in genera! knowledge of the game. the two are about equal. As a field general, Williams is the superior of Dobie, but in catching and running back punts, Dobie has no equal in the we3t, if, indeed, he has in the entire country. Dobie, too, is a punter sec ond to none, and in aiding the runner in in terference is slightly better than Williams. The position of quarter, therefore, goes to Dobie; allowing Henry of Chicago to captain and direct the running of the team. Coming to full-back, h« gives Knowlton of Minnesota first place, with Sweeny of Michigan second. •'Knowlton," he says, "is a long and accurate punter, a reliable catcher, and a brilliant runner with the ball. He has kicked a number of 'drop' goals, and goals from placement, from the field, but his strongest point, the one in which he has no equal, is on defensive play in backing up the line." Whitney's* All-Western. Here is Mr. Whitney's all-western eleven for 1900: Page (Minnesota), center. Riordeu (Wisconsin) and E. Dtetz (North western), guards. Curtis (Wisconsin) and Warner (Iowa), tackles. Aune (Minnesota) and Snow (Michigan), ends. Dobie (Minnesota), quarter. Henry (Chicago) and Lairaoa (Wisconsin), halves. Knowlton (Minnesota), full. It will be seen that this foremost foot ball writer of the country maintains the same interest In Minnesota when treat ing of the team individually thai he has in referring to the team in general terms. His comment illustrates anew the stand ing of the university eleven. RACING RILES National Cycling; Association Will Probably Make Some Changes. New York, Jan. 30.—At the annual meet ing of the National Cycling association, to be held in this city next Tuesday, some important changes in the racing rules will be submitted for adoption. The introduc tion of motor pacing has made a change in the riding of paced, middle distance racers and the old rules drawn up for use when | the pacing machines were driven by mus cle alone will not fit the new conditions. Elkes, McDuffie and Michael have made j suggestions to the association. It is the effort of the association and the better class of riders to do away with team work in sprint races as far as possible. If the new rule is adopted there will be only two men left in the final for all championship sprints. This plan will be followed up using semi-finals until only two men are left. This will do away with team work certainly in the final and the best men ought to win every time. THE STATE TAKES ACTION Legal Proceedings to Prevent Jef frles-Ruhlln Fight Are Begun. Suit to enjoin the proposed Jeffries-Ruh lin fight at Cincinnati Feb. 14, was com menced yesterday.
