THE ONLY BRIGHT SPOr
IN THE S10CK MARKET
The Flourishing Condition of the Steel
and Iron Trade and Better Price of
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 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

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.

Washington, March 20. More criti

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
The fortification appropriation bill

debate Mr. Burtlett of Georgia denied

Boston. March 20. 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

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
