As a result he ivestigated and took the James’ Treat ment for Drunkenness, and is now a ured man. If you do not want to lose our Job and fill a drunkard’s grave, I rould advise you to take the James reatment.’ as a result or ms aavice, 1 went to our offices, at No. 221 Missouri Trust lutldlng, 9t.

Ay sleep was fitful and interrupted by lorrible dreams. My heart, liver and kid isys were all affected, and I was so ner ous I could hardly do my work. I squan lered my entire wages for drink, and vhen I had money would invite every >ody to drink with me. Oftentimes dur ng the night I would drink a gallon of oe water, and undergo the most excru ciating pain. I would never undertake iny task of Importance without first tanking up.’ “I am glad to say that the James Treatment has not only cured me of my infortunate W’hiskey addiction, but has ilso cured me of the horrible mental and Physical condition in which l bad been eft by another treatment.

Manager I POOL INTERESTS HAVE BEEN BUSY Stock Market Seemed to be Highly Artificial ^ ROGERS CRAVES SYMPATHY Say* Ha It Tired of Being Aseailed. Heinzes Really Got Only $11, 000,000 for United Copper. Wall Street Gossip. BY W. G. NICHOLAS. New York, February 24.—(Special.)— Pool manipulation has been much In evi dence this week. Clique stocks were put to the front and given market leadership. Although there was a reaction later un der pressure, prices were marked up the first of the week In direct conflict with news and Influences of pronounced bear ish tenor. This was conspicuously the case with Reading and to a lesser degree with other coal roads, which would nat urally have been adversely affected by the supreme court decision and by threatened Congiess investigations. The excuse given for pool activity In these stocks was that a tacit compromise agreement had been reached between the coal opera tors and the miners under the terms of which peace would be assured for an other two years. Industrial stocks were ; aiso given, a wniri, and tnen rouowed the | standard railroad stocks, and lastly ; some of the low-priced Issues. Altogether I the market had a most unnatural aspect and seemed highly artificial. The Hill group was boomed energetically on the strength of the deal for turning over Air. Hill's ore properties to the Steel Trust on a royalty basis. No cash is involved In this transaction, but under its opera tions the trust is to come into possession of some hundreds of millions of dollars worth of cheap Iron and Mr. Hill’s rail roads will derive direct compensation and largely increase its tonnage. In as much as it Is high treason for any of Mr. Hill’s followers to ever sell any part of their holdings, the floating supply of his stocks is very light, and it is an easy matter to mark up quotations to seemingly ab surd heights. Everybody who has bought into the Hill stocks and stuck by them has made money. That has gfvfen him a great following, which is loyal almost to the point of fanaticism. There is no length to which they will not go In blind obedience to what t'hey believe has the •proper Inspiration. This is a remarkable testimonial and endorsement, and places Mr. Hill in a position unique In the an nals of Wall street. The devoted orators and historians enlisted under the Hill flag are trying to make it appear that their hero has been indulging himself in the pleasure of colossal self-sacrifice in turning over his ore lands to the Steet Trust for t'he benefit of his railroads— ore lands that cost him originally less than 1600,000 and according to actuarial re claiming possess a value of several hun | dred millions under the terms of the new deal, official details of which are looked for with curiosity. Tt. might he. mentioned In this connection that Mr. Hill is turning over to the Steel Trust only a part of his ore lands. The area which he retained will be In the position of a vacant city square which is about to be surrounded on all sides by sky scrapers. the construction of which will multiply his land a thousand fold In value. It will be seen, therefore, that Mr. Hill’s wise generosity In t*he interest of his railroads contains a clause con ferring a gift of fabulous value to his own posterity. When Mr. Hill Is be trayed into the commission of an act of seeming prodigality It Is sometimes well to take a little peep behind the cur tain. Any jury will acquit Mr. Hill of a charge of heedless charity. Rights of Coal Roads. Attorneys are very busy these days “construing” tlie decision of the supremo court restricting and defining the rights of coal roa%s. Most of them seem to he trying to convince themselves that the court did not mean what it seemed to be saying it meant. The burden of most of the legal arguments and reason ing thus far advanced is to localize and minimize the importance and significance of the decision. Anthracite and bitumi nous lawyers are unanimous in the opin ion that this latest high judicial finding in prohibition of common carriers doing a mining or mercantile business in com petition with their patrons has no bear ing on the existing practices of the coal roads. They do not deny that the de cision Is an unusually interesting con tribution to the legal literature of the day or that it has academic Importance. They have serious doubts, however, as to its application to current railroad or coal mining affairs. Attitude of Congress. Similarly the street 1b belt’s morphlnod in the matter of congressional Investi gation Into doings of coal roads and other transportation companies playing the dual role of carrier and producer. In this case, however, the anesthetic does not Impart the desired results for there Is a strongly defined feeling that If Con gress Is really In earnest there is trouble in store for some of the big companies alleged to exist In flagrant violation of the law*. It Is of common knowledge that there Is already stored In the de partment. of justice In Washington proof mountain high of the existence of an anthracite coal trust. Congress has only to call upon the departemnt for this evidence to make at least one Invincible case. Wall street cannot pretend to long remain In Ignorance of this situation or to view with aasumed Indifference the latest outbreak of feongresglonal curiosity on the question of combinations It) re straint of trade. Financial Interests Easier. The financial interests behind the rail roads ars easier In their minds, yet not entirely satisfied with the Washington outlook touching rate regulation. The commonly adopted theory that Con gress will do nothing to really disturb the status Is not held so universally by the big people rs might be supposed from hearing the Inspired expression on the subject. A vigorous Investigation along lines Indicated by latest Washington ad vices might set In motion forces which cannot bo controlled, as was the case with the life Insurance Inquiry. Wash ington, It will be perceived. Is likely to be a factor In the market for several months to come. It will be the part of prudence for Investors and speculators to keep an eye on the nation's capital and not be lulled Into a sense of over-confi dence or over-security by reiterated re ports that there will be nothing doing in that quarter. More Combination, Progress is being continually made In the grand plan for closer relationship be tween Vanderbilt and Standard Oil rail roads and the Harrlman system. This deal Involves directly New York Central, Lake Shore. Union Pacific. Northwestern and Illinois Central, with possibly Inti mate communion with St. Paul. These plans took definite form more than a year ago when William Rockefeller took over the larger part of William K. Van derbilt's holdings of New York Central.

Standard Oil money is the cement which will eventually bind the various parts to gether under one control. What the Heinzes Got. Irritated by persisted publication of the story that the Heinzes got $25,000,000 for the mines and smelters of the United Copper company in and around Butte, parties speaking for Mr. Rogers and his Standard Oil associates have caused It to be given out "by authority that the actual price was a little oter $11. 000,000. all In cash, the deal giving the Heinzes no special privileges beyond a chance to subscribe to a small minority In the new holding company, a favor which would be given anybody who has the price. Meanwhile United Copper, divested of Its lungs, 'heart and stomach, hut with $11,000,000 of new cash In Its treasury, continue* to receive Inside sup port at skyscraplng quotations. The cynics of the curb are Jokingly Inquiring of each other when United Is to be traded In "ex-mystery.” These rude people on the curb can never quite forget the more or less nebulous equities dealt In under various trademarks In times past, and they have adopted as their rule of safety the venerable Missouri maxim, "Show me.” C. & N. W. Stock. The standard old Chicago and North western could not resist the temptation to dip Into the golden stream that flows through Wall street. The Northwestern treasury Is popularly supposed to be literally bursting with cash and quick asset*, yet it comes gaily to the front with a proposition to add to its store of money the sum of $1«>,000,000. The ex cuse offered Is a new issue of stock to be subscribed for at par by owners of outstanding common and preferred shares of the corporation. This gives the trans action the color of a distribution to stock holders, ‘Tights'' being worth approxi mately |32. Rogers Sore. H. H. Rogers, the Standard Oil mag nate, is sore clear through. Kick any man in one place long enough and hard enough and he will get sore, however much he may imagine himself to be Jhick skinned and impervious to attack. The Rogers plaint is that he has been shock ingly misrepresented and abused and that hi» true self is unappreciated and misunderstood. He says that lie lias been shamefully and wrongfully hammered from one end of the country to the other and that he is tired of the game. To his friends *he confides that were it not for his pride he would retire from the active management of the mammoth in dustrial enterprises of which he is the real head. It goes against the grain for him to quit under fire, and as the bat teries of the enemy will probably never eeaae playing on him he seems to be fated to die in harness. The much ma ligned multi-millionaire seems to have had It finally driven into him that a man can pay too high a price for money and that the acquisition of an enormous for tune has its offsets. Mr. Rogers would now wish above eveorytning else in the world to enjoy tihe good will of his fel low men. This sensation Is of late de velopment. His senior associate, John D. Rockefeller, began to feel a similar human emotion years ago when he first began thinking about founding the great university of learning with which his name Is Identified. Neither of them seems able to command the one thing that would give him greatest peace and com fort In Ills declining years. So far as known. William Rockefeller, the third member of the remarkable Standard Oil triumvirate, has not yet been assailed by any overpowering desire for human sympathy. He has been in Europe for more than a year and shows no signs of Intention to revisit Ills native lnnd. Shortlv prior to his departure from America some of tile hardy mountaineers who had been dispossessed of their homes up in i he Adirondacks and otherwise har ried In order that the William Rocke feller domain might he properly rounded out and fenced In. threatened to "shoot up" the Kerosene King and Ills hench men. by way of reprisal. It was given out that Mr Rockefeller was In no way alarmed on account of these threats arul that he would be back in time to re occupy his Adirondack establishment as soon as the weather would permit. That was last spring. He failed to make good and has shown a marked preference for life abroad. The mountaineers are laugh ing among themselves and telling around their firesides how they "scared off” William Rockefeller, whom they have learned to hate with the same Intensity that their kind In the rugged fastnesses of West Virginia, Kentucky. Tennessee and North Carolina hate their hereditary foes, the revenue agents. They look upon both as tyrants and Invaders bent on depriving them of home and God given privileges. Prom all of which It would appear that the lot of the Com mercial Conquerors of America Is not altogether a happy one. DR. J. H. TINDER Office Hours 9 to 12:30; 2 to 5 p. m. Optical Parlors with P.
