THE ONLY BRIGHT SPOr IN THE S10CK MARKET The Flourishing Condition of the Steel and Iron Trade and Better Price of Copper. New York.. March 20. The only mo tive power in the stock market today seemed to be the shifting operations of professional traders. The tone was one of uncertainty and instability un til a brisk advance in the final hour. 1-arge attention was given to the state of the Iron and steel trade owing to the publication of a pamphlet report of the Steel Corporation for the last year, the outcome of the conference yesterday among the steel men over the policy of maintaining prices. The report said: "The bookings for Jan uary were 2" ier cent larger than for December, and for February were Sfi per cent larger than for January. As this report goes to press, the bookings per day are at least 2.1 per cent larger than those of February. The man agement expresses a hopeful view, of the future." The favorable Impression of the Iron and steel trade derived from these fac tors is supplemented by good reports from the copper trade. The price of that metal advanced in the local metal exchange and in London and the ex port price ct New York was also re ported raised by the principal selling agency. A depressing influence was exerted during the morning by reports that sweeping reductions in working forces in all departments were pro jected by the Pennsylvania owing to the heavy curtailment of traffic. Bonds were steady. STOCKS. Amalgamated Copper 573. Ameri can Smelting B9H. Atchison 73. C. It. & St. P. 1 1 5 - . New York Central S84. Pennsylvania 116, Reading 1-04S. Southern Pacific 73-.

' ..,.lvvvt ;"tt -5r ' eat' So ; m Alfred Benjamin & Co., MAKERS NEW YORK Sia-n, m CI nesting in a place or nonor on me 'j i a top of his desk, empty-eyed and grin- j jjjJ; ning with a well preserved set of V-.-i. Roosevoitiun teeth, the skull of a man f"' who nce possessed more than com- j tTHj mon physical development, faces Sup- Sigt erlntendent Robert Craig of the city I 5s water department. Mute ana unre sponsive to the Jocose remarks of Re corder Thomas and the. other water de partment officials housed . in that apartment of the city hall, but never theless as affable as one in Its help less but dignified condition may be, this silent visitor from another genera tion, perhaps a former civilization. Is u guest unwelcome to the Janitor, Fred Gardner. Fred is not exactly "skeered" but he has a bit of the old superstition about graveyards in his mind and ad dressing Ned Creighton. chief clerk of the water department, he said: "1 wish you'd have Judge Thomas put that hombre in the vault. I don't like to have him around. I-have to meet you here every morning and one" dead one" is enough. This skull is the head-piece of a skeleton that was found yesterday by the men engaged in connecting the new water pipe with a service pipe from a house near the comer of Mad ison and Second avenue. The skeleton was found in a sitting posture and a workman's pick penetrated the 'skull before he was aware of the "presence of the past." Coroner Johnstone was notified in due course but by the time he arrived the curio hunter had got in his desecrating work and this, per haps Phoenix' oldest citizen, was al ready dismembered and scattered all over the townsite. The upper bone of one leg had been carried to the sher iffs office, .the head to the city hall, and other bones to other parts. The coroner viewed the spot where the re mains had laid and announced sol emnly that the statute of limitations had run against the case and he re fused to consider It In his court. There wasn't enough left of the deceased to even hang a court decision on, much less collect a fee. The identity of the skeleton Is and always will be unknown. Death came upon him before the advent of Arizona Bill or Alkali Ike, for there wasn't a metal beer check or a six shooter to be found anywhere near his resting place. He may be a representative of that ancient civilization that flourished in this valley In larger numbers than the present inhabitants, back In th? days to which the mind of man, nor yet his records, runneth not back. Most likely though the skeleton Is that of an Indian, though his frame is larger than that of most of the tribes men In these parts. The cheek bones are high, the forehead not specially well developed, while the top of the head is rather too high and full and the thickness from the nose to back of the head is too slight to suggest a Caucasian type. The leg bone at the sheriffs office la longer than that of mast men so he must have been well toward seven feet tall. The fact that the bodv was found In sitting posture l also In accordance with old customs among the Indians and some of the oldest settlers say that when the town was first laid out, Indians resided in huts in that locality In quite large numbers, as they did also Just east of the present Gold hotel. Seabright Sack Suit VOr: m THE SHIP SUBSIDY BILL PASSED BY 1HE SENATE (Continued from page 1J THE HOUSE. Washington, March 20. More criti cism of President Roosevelt was In dulged in in the house today when he was roundlv denounced by Mr. Hard wick of Georgia for failing to send to congress all the Information regarding corporations which has come Into his possession. The president, however, found a ready and vigorous defender in Mr. Mann of Illinois, who asserted that the president had acted with the utmost good faith in sending to con gress all the information that had come to him. The discussion arose over a resolu tion by Mr. Harwick to require the president to supply the house with all data so far obtained by the bureau of corporations. The resolution was tabled. The fortification appropriation bill was taken up. In the course of the debate Mr. Burtlett of Georgia denied the claims of the republicans of credit for the authorship of the railroad rate or Sherman anti-trust law.

The condition of Governor Curtis Guild remained ex tremely critical tonight, though there has been no actual change since last evening. Dr. Frederick 13. Wlnslow stated that the governor's condition remains unchanged and that he is holding his own well. A feeling of gloom pervaded the state house all day. It is evident that the officials who visited the Guild residence shared in the general depression. It is freely admitted that Governor Guild's condition has reached a stage where it is a question of life or death with the chances apparently against his recovery. Numerous attempts to trnin ilufinit. Infiirtniillikn fnim Ihp physicians as to the exact nature of f'""' th- disease, proved unavailing today. From outside sources, however, it was saiil'ihat the governor lias inflamma tory rheumatism and is suffering from uremia and endorcarditis. the latter being un inflammation of the mem brane llninij the cavities of the heart. " This afternoon tin1 police closed traffic on that part of Marlborough street on which the Guild residence is lr.catfcl. so that the noise of the teams would not reach the governor's chamber. Prayers for the recovery of the chief executive were offered by the chaplains of the senate and hotipe and In several churches today. just because they happen to be. a little shabby or faded.
