"ROC X seats on 1 naY-F. TO F WORK Project Initiated to Secure THE JOINT THROUGH LINE L. H. Chalmers Starts an Un dertaking Designed to Com plete Southern Pacific and Santa Fe Central Arizona Enterprise. L. H. Chalmers yesterday under took the completion of the transcon tinental railroad line which will put Phoenix on a through road from the east to the coast, the prolect first un dertaken by the Santa Fe and later devolving upon the Southern Pacific through its purchase of the Phoenix & Eastern, and held temporarily in abeyance, presumably by the scarcity of money for railroad construction, due to the panic. In other words, . by the time the Southern Pacific can get busy and construct the line through the canyon of the Gila between Win kelman and San Carlos, the Santa Fe will have its Parker line finished to the western terminal, and the trick will be turned. Mr. Chalmers' pro ject is to get the Southern Pacific started, and he Is earnest about it. His plans were outlined yesterday afternoon to the directors of the board of trade and again last night before the city council, both organizations taking favorable action upon it. Mr. Chalmers' speeches were prefaced by references to the advantages of such a railroad, which phase of the ques tion Is too well known locally to need exploitation' at this time. Everybody along the line of the railroad wants its early completion and regards it as one of the most Important developing projects. Mr. Chalmers said his plan came to him by reading a press'dis patch to the effect that Mr. Harriman is soon to go into camp near San An tonio for a- three weeks' period of rest and simple life, as recreation from his strenuous business duties, and Mr. Chalmers' plan is to send a deputation of the right kind of people to call on Mr. Harriman under these most favor able circumstances, and by facts and figures demonstrate conditions that will surely impel him to undertake this construction at the earliest possi ble moment. . In making his remarks, Mr. Chal mers said he made no denial of the fact that he was a local attorney for the Santa Fe railroad, but that the subject in mind is one of his own conception, and he has not conferred with a single Santa Fe official In con nection with It. Further elucidating his plan, he said that a committee should be appointed by the board of trade to locate Mr. Harriman and dis cover when and where would be the most favorable time to see him; that it should In the meantime prepare a statistical brief by which Mr. Harri man could be readily shown the pres ent business of this section and the prospective busines In the event of construction; that It should be a busi ness talk along business lines with a business man. He advised that Colonel Epes Randolph should also be first .approached and his co-operation se cured, and if possible he should be s persuaded to accompany the delegation that called upon Mr. Har riman, but that if he refused the dele gation should go any way. He be lieved In going to the fountain head, or as near It as possible. He be lieved in making the straight talk in the place where it would be effective, if anywhere. He said the Southern Pacific is now spending millions in construction in Mexico, and he be lieved, If the proper business showing could be made, it would even more gladly spend a little money in com pleting this undertaking and placing It on a proper revenue basis. The board of trade left the matter in the hands, of the transportation committee, which consists of B. A. Fowler, Dr. J. C. Norton and Da. A. J. Chandler, requesting Mr. Chalmers also to serve as a member of the com mittee. In the evening Mr. Chalmers made a similar talk to the city council, and a motion prevailed that the mayor ap point a committee of three or more to co-operate with the board of trade mlttee in this enterprise. The mayor announced that he would announce the committeemen later. o THE MARKET BROKE UNDER HEAVY SELLING The Steel Situation Isl Filling Specu lators With Suspense. New York, Feb. 18. The stagnation that has prevailed in the stock mar ket changed taday into an active sell ing movement without any counterbal ancing demand to meet. A severe In road on prices was the consequence. The whole marke hinged upon the de velopment of the steel trade. It is gen erally known that the conferences go ing on between th officials of the Steel Corporation are likely to result in changes of the schedule of prices which have been firmly held by the corporation. Reports of independent steel companis that were making con cessions and getting what business Is going were met by deprecatory com ments that there were small propor tions of such business. The position was complicated by the fact that the market prices of the stovk of the Steel Corporation have been held by main force as well as by the prices of its product. The belief that a position so long maintained by the leading steel interests Is about to bo abandoned un edrmlned the whole market. STOCKS. Amalgamated copppr.

The list has been unsettled and lower during the day, the feature being the heavy pressure on the steel Issues, attri buted principally to the Insistent talks of a reduction In the prices of finished products. Discussion as to the extent of tariff revision has also been a disturbing Influence and the professional element has attacked1 prices vemorously and succeeded In piercing liquidation on the decline. A' great mining pool lightened their loads, accounting for sharp declines In various Issues, but at the levels prevailing near the close some sup port was noted, the aggressiveness of the professional would seem to de note the caution of a good sized short interest and although scattered liquidation has occured on the de cline, the securities held by the pub lic are for the most part very well protected and congestion in likely to occur at almost any time when shorts commence to even up their accounts. It is true that conditions do not warrant an extended upper I movement, of the list, but it should be much to the interest of the large holders of securities to hold prices around prevailing levels until financ ing of the future Is completed and the ease of money is a factor which should tend to work against a ma terial decline.

Wheat May sold at between $1.13 1.14, and July at $1.00i4. May corn scored a new high record mark for the present upward move prices at 66 He. May oats sold at 55 l c, a new high record for the season. The market closed strong almost, at the top. May, 55H554c; July, 49c. ' CHICAGO GRAIN Chicago, Feb. 18. Nobody in the local trade pretends to be wise enough to know just what is going on in the local camps of the bull leaders. They sold a little May wheat so as to prevent the price from going above 114 the first hour. Their broker bought quite a little May wheat later in the session, na turally the pit trade can't distinguish between the extentions for ordinary customers and the operations of the leaders. It seems evident from the action of the market that support will be felt any time the price has a declining tendency. It is a market' in which trade cannot act on the new failure as thry come out without running against Some contrary Influ ence In the market. Kansas City reports rain to be followed by colder weather. We ad vise the buying side of July wheat on a chance of a crop scare. Soft and unseasonable weather has continued over the corn shipping sections of Illinois, and to sole ex tent over the western states, until it has started more or less of a scare among the remaining shorts. Illinois points In some cases report impas sable roads. Strong local people were on the buying side of both May and July on the advance. These condi tions over the country will not last long and corn will move freely as soon as roads improve. We believe in taking some profits on long corn at this level. We advise the placing of . resting orders well under this market, to take hold of some product at the right spot for a higher level of prices later in the season.

Phone, Main 67 1 A new serial; describing the visit of an American girl to" her aunt, who has married an Italian prince, and her ex periences in Roman society, is an nounced by Everybody's Magazine, to begn in the February number. The story is full of action and constant In terest to American readers, from the moment that the heroine, Nina Ran dolph, leaves her New York home for the steamer. "Nina's father talked with her for some time on various topics: on the beauty of Italy, the charm of the peo ple; of his admiration for Eleanor Sansevero. 'But, dearest,' he ended, one word on the subject of European men: you will probably have a good deal of attention. I don't want to spoil your enjoyment, but you must remember the hard, cold fact that it will be chiefly because you are Miss Millionaire. " 'I am sure' they couldn't be any more after "Miss Millionaire" over there than here.' She began calmly enough, but grew vehement as she continued: 'How many of the pro posals that I have had from my own countrymen during the past two years have been for me, the girl, and not merely for your daughter?" "Her father, having stirred up her resntment, now tried to soothe it down. " 'You must not get cynical, little girl. Every advantage in this world must have its corresponding disadvan tage. I merely want you to follow your extremely sensible and well-balanced head. Only, remember,' he add ed with bantering good humor, 'I am not over keen . about foreigners, so don't bring a little what-is-it back with you, and don't expect because it has a long string of titles dangling to it, that it will be welcomed with any enthusiasm by your doting father! So, away with you!' He again looked at his watch. 'Better get your things to gether; you haven't any too much . time.' " I o I Skinning Live Snakes. . Very few of the people who are the ( proud possessors of belts, pocketbooks, card cases, and numerous other arti cles of snake skin, realize the agony I that the demand ' for civilization for fads' has meant to the original owners of the material from which these ar ticles are made, says the March Popu lar Mechanics. It .is difficult to skin a dead snake, and the skin is often spoiled in the course of the operation, while, on the other hand, It Is a simple matter to skin a live snake, and the skin thus gained is worth much more. Dead snakes bring from 2 to 5 cents, ac cording to their size, and live ones from 25 cents to $1. One of the largest snake skin com panies has factories in Sumatra. When ( a snake is received from a hunter it is seized adroitly by an operator, one hand squeezing the neck and the other holding the tail. It is then attached by the neck to the trunk. of a palm tree, an. assistant holding it by the tail. Resolved, That the thanks of J. W.
