1 iiSS 1 mt,y .V If ADOPT NEW SYSTEM VORRELL PLANT MAY REVOLU TIONIZE METHOD OF RE FINING LARD.'- WIT ___ I .SANITATION TANKS INSTALLED -Experiments Being Tried N'oft' a"?M System-May Be Adopted —'Picnic Will Probably Go to Burlington— Lovilia Turned Down. An experiment is being tried at the plant ol John Morrell & Co., In East Ottumwa, which, i£ successful, will revolutionize the method of refining lard and tallow an^, the treatment of •fertilizer by this firm. A set of the Powter sanitation tank have been placed in operation at'the,plant and If these work satisfactorily they will be installed in a sufficient number- to flo the work and the entire system of reducing the entrails of the nogs will •be changed. J. H. Caylord of Dayton, 0., is in the city and had charge-of the Installation of the tanks in the plant. It is stated that with this system the offensive smeil arising from the ren dering of the meats and the fertilizer .Will be entirely eliminated. How They Work. The system is composed of one tank ,15 by 5 feet in dimensions, placed in a horizontal position, and connected with two perpendicular tanks measur ing 16 by 6 feet placed directly above It. The perpendicular tanks arei heat ed and the meats to be rendered are placed in them. The lard and tallow being the cleaner rise to the top and ^e forced by compressed air through ipipas. la. the .lard -refinery, The fertil lzer goes to the tank below and is 'there dried ~and placed in readiness for the market The system' has been itrled, it is stated, in a number of large packing plants and has been found to work successfully. The sys tem has been given a partial trial here and has been found to give satisfac tion thus far. It is thought-very prob able that the Powter sanitation tanks will supersede the old method of work In the tank room of the plant and that a sufficient number of them to do the work will soon be placed in opera tion. To Disappoint Mvilia^ The picnic committee' of the (Pack ing House Mutual Aid association re turned from Lovilia with the decision that this year's outing' shall not be beld at that place. The accommoda tions were not those that are .neces 'Bary for the big event and the many Ottumwans will not go t,o the .Mon 'roe county town to spend this most enjoyable day. The^committee is still active, however, and is now negotlat- .lng with the citizens of Burlington with a view of holding the picnic in that city in Crapo park, should a rea sonable rate- be secured for transport ing the immense crowds that would surely attend this gala event. The accommodations at Burlington are ex cellent and there Is no doubt but that the picnic would be an unparalleled Success should It go to that place. A Decrease In Hogs Packed. This week's packing does not show «a increase like that shown last week, rce number of hogs killed was 12,200, which snows a. decrease of 3,350. This killing, however. Is considered good .and the average for the year will show about this amount-. The price for v, choice hogs has slightly decreased this week, and the stockmen, no doubt, prefer holding on to their product un til tl^ere is an increase in the price. 4 Notes. T. B.

THE OTfltkWA COUEIBR. OUTLOOK IS BRIGHT v? FISCAL YEAR OPENS UNDER AUS PICIOUS CONDITIONS. BPS WE1THER CONDITIONS IMPROVED Trade Outlook Is Exceedingly Good— Crop Indications Are Fdr Better in Yield Than Was Expected Earlier in the Season. New York, July 4.—R. G. Du & Co.'s weekly review of trade says: "A new fiscal year has commenced under more favorable auspices than appeared possible a short time ago, the improvement being due in no small measure to the greater conservatism that was an outgrowth of unsettled conditions. Seasonable weather has also contributed to the better distribu tion of merchandise, besides encourag ing bouyant sentiments lfl the agricul tural districts. Railway earnings and output of pig iron were larger, while insolvencies were fewer. Earnings of railways thus far, reported for June surpass last year's by 10 per cent, and those of 1901 by 19.4 per cent. In Iron and Steel Lines. "More inquiries for pig iron have &t> peared, and, although actual oontracts are for comparatively small quantities, the tone is distinctly better. Bessemer iron is not offered for the third quarter by the association, and orders accepted for early delivery are taken by middle men who have stocks on hand. The situation has been complicated during the last week by the strike'of coal min ers in Alabama, which threatens to re strict the output of southern iron. In so far as quotations are concerned, this is a strengthening factor, and is also calculated to bring considerable busi ness that is beiiig held back in expec tation of better terms. "Steel rails are still the best feature In the markets for finished products. Fully 500,000 tons are now booked for next year's delivery, and many orders for 1903 will be carried over. Struc tural material moves freely, consider ing the labor situation in the builditig trades, while there is notable activity in bars, and especially for agricultural implements and-machinery works. As to the Leather Trade. "Footwear manufacturers in New Egland have received liberal supple mentary orders for fall shoes from eastern jobbers in addition to a fair supply of contracts' already on hand. A quiet season in the leather market has produced small concessions in the prices of hemlock sole a.nd oak belt ing butts, while harness leather is now the most active feature. Both domestic and foreign hides average a small fraction lower for" the week, with a large transaction in goods damaged by floods the chiof-ifieature. Slight ad vances-are recot*deBiift some divisions .of the cotton goods market, but the changes are pracii^ly, nbrmal." As Seen byi»Bradstreet's. Bradstreet's 'Says?®' "Warm, forcing ..weather has. been .the keynote of the situation, this week, inducing favorable-conditions for the winter wheat hardest, enlargements in retail trade in summer goods, gen erally heretofore backward, And, what is most important of all, bringing about a much more cheertul feeling as to the future outlook for business gen erally. "Additional reports as to six months' trade are quite favorable, despite ear lier unfavorable conditions. June bank clearings, though aided by stock, grain, an,ii cotton speculation, largo seml-ati- nual disbursements, and the pulling this city. through of large dealings, have not been.wliolly dependent tiiereou for the marked expansion shown over last year. "Failure returns, are also favorable each other, swelled liabilities 5 per cent above those of last year. Gen erally speaking, the Second half of the year opens auspiciously. 'A slight decrease in sugar, design ed to encourage backward ucmand, is noted. Yellow pine and white pine lumber Is weaker at the west, but un changed at the east, while hardwoods are generally firmljf'held. Better Fealfng'ln Iron. Aside from the continuance of the slightly better feeling noted in Iron and steel circles last week, develop ments are few. New. buying is still small, though better than for some weeks past. Better crop reports and the placing of large rail orders, in all 5,000,000 tons for next year are a source of confidence. Foreign iron and steel are apparently out of the market to stay. Hard ware.la in better demand though not as good as a year ago, but manufacturers are reported to have agreed to maintain prices at last year's rates. Copper is weak, with rumored sales at quarter cent reduc tion. and tin Is lower on liquidation.

Americans and Frenchmen at Notable Dinner* Paris, July 6.—The local celebration of the Fourth of July culminated last night in a dinner given by the Ameri can Chamber of Commerce at the Ho tel orsay.

CHURCHES TO MERGE. Congregational, Methodist Protestant and United Brethren to Unite. Fvcr.n Saturday's Daily. Rev. S. J. Geddes, of this city, re turned last night from Pittsburg, Pa., where he attended a committee meet ing of the Congregational, Methodist Protestant and United Brethren church es called for the purpose of dlsccssing the advisability of merging the throe churches. Rev. Geddes reports that it was practically decided to merge but that the plans will not be complet ed until another ineetlng to be held at Pittsburg in October. Rev. Geddes is president of the Iowa conference of the Methodist Protestant Church and it was largely due to his efforts that the recent merger was effected be tween the Methodist Protestant and Second Congregational churches in Will Devise Plans. Rev.
