Formation of a Syndicate to
Control the Price of Cot
ton Seed Ol.
A speteal froma SL. Ioub ms: Some
two or more yers ao J. V. Inwle, a
rxtensive manufacturer of cotton seed
oIl, of CinciasttU , conceived the idea of
forminga pool Intended to control the
prlee of the commodity, and has since
that time been quietly but sealously at
work, with several other large manrufe
turers, to put into exealtion his plan.
It is now stated that his elborts have sue
ceeded, and that there has bees formed
a corporatin known as the Cotton Oil
Trust company, which controls every de
sirable mill west of the Mississippi river
and 80 per cent of the mille of th en
tire country. The capit d of the eountry
isn iid at $0,000,000 of which about
$17, 0 as0 been Issed to the mills
bougt by the pools. The plan of the
procedure s as ellows: If the oelrs
of the eomplay decide that a certaln
factory should be subject to pool control,
the owner is approached and invited to
sell his property. If it is unlneunbered
and in good working order he is given
certificates to the amount of three times
the value of his milL For aes valuable
property, lees is paid. If the mill thus
bought can be o:erated with a prot, the
trust empany places it lathe hands of
a superinteadentof its ow, and takes
possessmon of its property. Proe that
time the mill ranu as the best laterests
of the company dictate, tm eutput being
regulated by the current prie of the
eotto-seed products. Instead of enea
tering oppostlon from the mill wners
the pool has been besiged by applie
tions Iradmise on to the syndicate and
it now finds itself an almost eomplete
master of the situation.
"A poor wman coming i on Saturday

Dromios at the Capital.
A Washington correspondent writes :
There are six pairs of dromius in Wash
Ington this winter, and the curious am
taken which are daily oceuring are the
gossipof society and the hotels. Tom
Reed, the leader of the republican WMe
of the house, has eeuntaart in the
leading photographer d Washlagt, and
the joke is that the general air and ve
of th two are preiesely alike. The ether
night Stanley Matthews and a fellow
s rougresman of Reed's saw this photo
grapher at the theater and took him for
Reed. They went over to bm and ad
dressed him, but he knew nothing of the
subjects on which they asked to be posted
and it was some time before they dis
r covered that they were Interviewlng the
wrong man. Two other droulos are
Welborn of Texas, and the frowsy headed
r fellow who writes cards In the lobby fd
r the house. Welbornas been taken hr
the card writer time and again, and he
grows angry, a is aid, every time sah
a mistake oeeurs. The likelines of Gay
the sugar millionaire of Iasais to
SSeator Sherman is very striking, and
Cleveland and Manning are sometimes
taken for one another. I have told you
