It was that of W. L. Stow & Co.
Jcteat cheer rent the air a cheer from
the victorious bears.
The market wavered In Us nervousness,
hut It was clear that there was mare work
to be done.
Prices continued their downward course
and new low records were established In a
score of Industrial stocks. Then it again
became known that another falluro was to
Once more the chairman rore In his gnl
lerv and commanded the attention ot the
excited brokers. This time the announce
ment was made of the failure of the great
commission lirm of T. J. Taylor & Co.. In
whose office James R. Keene had since 1901
directed the manipulation of the greatest of
all bull markets.
Another cheer greeted this announcement,
but It was even louder and more powerful
than that which greeted the news ot the
collapse of W. L. Stow & Co.
When the news of tho two failures was
digested the market Immediately showed
signs of Improvement, but hesitated on the
reports that another suspension was to be
a:nounced. There were, however, no fur
ther announcements made, and the street
Immediately assumed that the worst was
over. The traders thereupon began to bid
up prices and the market closed with a
remarkable show of strength,
SAGn THE LARGEST
It was stated in a prominent banking
house that Russell Sage Is the largttit se
cured cedltor of the bankrupt firm of Tay
lor & Co.
All the leading bonks have held some of
the time and call loans of the Keene bro
kers, but tho most expert opinion that pre
vailed had It that most of the largest loans
were "bailed" out In the heavy liquidation
In the last week or more. In fact, the at
torneys of Taylor & Co. admitted to-night
that It was due to the inability of Taylor
& Co. to liquidate the stocks held by them
which compelled a suspension.
James R, Keene, when asked for an ex
pression of his views late to-night said:
J. R. KEENE SAYS
STOCKS ARE CHEAP.
"What's the use of discussing a situation
when ruling prices are absolutely out of
touch with real values. The wonder Is that
such a condition can prevail In Wall street
The market is demoralized; there seems to
bo a craze to sell everything; people are
as eager to sell as they were to buy a
year ago, when stocks were DO per cent
"Stocks are very cheap, but there is such
a deluge of them due to recent liquidation,
and such timidity on the part of buyers
that except in a few Issues, there is no
market And this while business Is ex
cellent throughout tho country, railroad
earnings large, and crops promising. Wall
street Is the only black spot"
When asked regarding the failure of Tal
bot J. Taylor & Co., Mr. Keene said:
"I have nothing to do with that I think
the suspension will be but temporary. They
evidently thought It useless to go on far
ther, although all their stocks were mar
gined up to bank requirements."
"Did the Southern Pacific pool have any
bearing on tho failure?"
"The Southern Pacific pool was dissolved
three or four months ago."
The collapse of tho two firms will lnvolv
liabilities of millions ot dollars, but up to a
late hour to-night no estimate was made as
to the extent of the aggregate losses.
Only 200 shares of Southern Pacific were
sold "under the rule" following the an
nouncement of the failures.
At tho office of W. L. Stow It was said
the firm had been earning a great number
of customers whose margins had been ex
hausted. Mr. Stow, it was said, was such
an implicit believer In Mexican Central that
he used his resources to the utmost in pro
tecting his friends.
PIERCE MIGHT HAVE BEEN
ABLE TO SAVE STOW.
According to the statement of a person
speaking for Stow & Co.. the failure would
have been avoided if Henry Clay Pierce,
president of the Mexican Central, had
Unfortunately Mr. Pierce had accompa
nied the New York club cruise, and funds

willing to supply In order to permit Mr.
Stow to complete what would have been a

of Mexico, was incorporated February 25.
1E80, under the Massachusetts laws, and
holds a Mexican charter and subsidy. Its
main lino runs from Mexico City to Juarez,
a distance of 1.244 miles.
In March, 1901, a syndicate headed by H.
Clay Plerco of St Louis acquired a major
ity of the stock, the amount of which out
standing at that time was about e4S.000.000.
In January, 1902, the company Issued 10,
000,000 collateral trust five-year -percent
bonds, secured by $16,125,000 consolldat
4 per-cent consols of the Mexican Central
proceeds of which were used for the retire
ment of f6.000.000 notes issued in payment of
the Monterey and Mexican Railroad. Tho
balance was used, according to report, for
the extension of the Monterey road.
The Mexican Central Securities Company,
limited, was formed in 1899, to acquire the
4 ptT cent consols of tho Mexican Central
Railway, "and to Issue In their place two
classes of securities." Several prominent
Englishmen, Including Lord Hllllngdon and
Lord Revelstoke. were among the original
trustees of the securities company.
The appended statement was Issued at
tho office of Taylor & Co. this evening:
JAMES R. KEENE IS
"Talbot J. Taylor & Co. have this day
executed a general assignment for the bene
fit of creditors to Philip J. Brltt. and he
has accepted the assignment, and has taken
charge of tho property and assets of the
"The assignment of the firm Is due to
their Inability to liquidate the stocks which
tho banks held for their account. All banks
having loans with them are well protected,
but the Inability to liquidate the stocks so
held has caused the suspension, which, it is
hoped, will be temporary. If the banks take
the reasonable view that by waiting grad
ual liquidation can be effected without dis
turbance to the stock market The largest
unsecured creditor of the firm Is Mr. James
Efforts to ascertain the amount of the
firm's Indebtedness to Mr. Keene were un
successful. The assignee Is a prominent Tammany
politician, and Is well-known as a closo

OP UDELL'S HIE,
Property Owners Up 5n Arms
Against Calling Thoroughfare
Camp Jackson Avenue.
APPEAL TO MAYOR WELLS.
Petition Asks Chief Executive to
Xot Sign Bill Until Holders '
of Real Estate Have
The property owners on Lindoll avenuo
from Channlng to Grand avenucsareup In
arms against tho proposed changing of tho
name of Llndell avenue to Camp Jackson
As an evidenco of their Indignity tho own
ers of property havo filed a remonstrance
with Major Wells asking that he withhold
his signatura from the bill until tho pro
testing petitioners have a chance to express
It Is claimed that the first Intimation
given regarding the changing of tho name
of tho street was the anriouncement In the
press that tho Council and House had
passed the bill authorizing tho change.
A protest was Immediately prepared and
circulated among the property owners who
attached their signatures to the document
"We would not have objected so strenu
ously to tho proposed change," said T. J.
Lonergan of No. SKB Llndell avenuo, "It we
had received a chance to voice our senti
ment In the matter.
"The bill seems to have been railroaded
through both branches of the Municipal
Assembly, and tho first thing we heard of
It was that the measure had passed both
houses. Another thing, we believe It Mil
be damaging to property Interests."
The protest was circulated yesterday, and
every property owner who could be seen
placed his signature to the document, at the
same tlmo expressing himself In strong lan
guage against the change.
It was stated last night that tho protest
had been filed with Mayor Wells, and that
tho Mayor had been requested by Corwln
H. Spencer to not sign the measure until
the property owners had an opportunity to
explain their reasons for objecting to the
PEITION TO THE MAYOR.
It Isn't the changing of the name to Camp
Jackson that Is particularly objected to, for
the majority of the property holders. It
seems, like that name, but It Is on general
principles that the objection Is made.
Nicholas M. Bell, who owns property on
Llndell avenue, states that the ctange in
name will greatly depreciate In value all the
property on Llndell avenue from Channlng
to Grand avenues. Mr. Bell terms the
proposition an Injustice.
Among tho property owners who have de
nounced the proposed change are: Captain
Joseph Anson, J. W. Harrison. John Hogan.
Horace Stone, R. M. Collins. R. II. Bernard,
Abe Slupsky and Charles Sonnemann, all of
whom own valuablo property on Llndell
avenuo east of Grand avenue. Others who
have signed tho protest express the same
"Wo object to the proposed change." Raid
one of the property holders last night "be
cause It Is unjust The matter came up be
fore the Municipal Assembly without any
publicity whatever. None of us knew any
thing of It until it was announced In the
papers that the bill making the change had
passed both houses.
"Mayor Wells has been asked to withhold
his signature until he hears from the prop
"The street only a year ago was recon
structed by the property owners at a great
expense, and I believe that all the costs of
this improvement have been paid.
"We have secured the signature of nearly
ever" property owner on the street to the
protest and I do not believe Mayor Wells
will decline to give us the proper consider
ation." Although tho measure has passed both
houses It Is not yet a law, and that Is why
tho property owners have protested to
Mayor Wells. The bill was onco killed In
the House and afterwards reconsidered and
passed, jet It Is claimed that If the Mayor
vetoes It there la still a chance for it being
It was said last night that members of
both the Housa and Council have stated
slnco the measure was passed that If they
had known that there would havo been a
protest they would havo voted and even
worked against the passage -f the measuro.
The property owners are waiting with
much anxiety the action of Mayor Wells,
for upon bis action depends largely Its final

various exhibit buildings.

Intends to sail for Paris to make his report
to Michel Lagrave, Commissioner General to
M. Boeufve expressed great concern about
the disposition of exhibits after their ar
rival in this country, and particularly after
their arrival at the Exposition grounds.
"I fear delay from congestion caused by
the clo-e arrival together at tho Exposition
of ovhlblts from various parts of the
world," lie said. "I shall counsel French
exhloitcrs to ship their displays several
weeks In advance of tho time other exhibits
will bo forwarded to this city. Only In tills
way will delay in installation bo avoided.
Such a delay Is the general rule at every
great International exposition."
M. Boeufve's presence here seemed to have
some effect on the tardv progress that has
marked the erection of tho Grand Trianon,
the Trench national pavilion at the Fair.
Tho foundation has been in place for two
weeks, but no uprights had been raised. The
timbers for the w.,lls of the building -were
on the ground yesterday end workmen
were busy on the silo of the structure

Property Holders Declare Old Doc

Year Ago Is Now Being
Used to Get Location.
A petition to open a dramshop at No.
1015 North Grand avenue has caused con
siderable indignation among residents In the
vicinity of Grand and Finney avenues, and
the probabilities are that a vigorous pro
test will soon be registered with the Ex
The cause of the trouble, It Is said. Is an
old petition, which, the residents claim. Is
now being used.
About a j ear ago Joseph Badaracco, a
memter of tho firm of Badaracco S Sons,
got up a petition to open a saloon at No
CG01 Finney avenue. Signatures were ob
tained, but as a remonstrance was made by
residents In the enlghborhood, the saloon
project was abandoned. The petition was
not filed with the Exclso Commissioner.
Several dajs ago a patrolman made a
house-to-house-canvass with a petition to
open a saloon at No. 1W5 North Grand ave
nue, which is part of the building at No.
3C03 Finney. The patrolman's canvass was
to see If the signatures" were bona fiSe.
All recognized their signatures, but many
were surprised to see the petition, as they
had heard nothing of It for a year. They
could not deny the signatures, but many
failed to notice that the location of the
saloon which they had signed for a year
ago wa3 changed.
The location of the proposed saloon Is
to be across the street from the Rock
Church, not far from the Odeon, and but a
few hundredfeet from the High School.
One resident wrote a letter to Excise
Commissioner Selbert repudiating his sig
nature, saving that he had signed for a
saloon at No. 3C04 Finney avenue, but not
for one at No. 1015 North Grand avenue.
Those who were approached , by the police
man claim that the original number on tho
license was cleverly marked out and tho
new one substituted in its stead.
The building at No. 1015 Xorth Grand ave
nue Is at present occupied by John J.
Burke, florist, who. It Is said, has a lease
on the place, but whom tho owners will buy
out, providing a license Is obtained.
Those who are said to be opposed to the
dramshop are: Mrs. Dorsey. who owns
the property at the corner of Grand
and rinney avenues; William H. Roeder,
who conducts a music store In tho Olivia
building; Wright & Gllmore, who conduct
U docoratlng business In tho Olivia build
