Speaking of tho plans of the South
ern Pacific in Mexico, Mr. Ingram tooU
occasion to deny that it was ever the
intention of the road to go into Man
zanillo. "The road has obtained track
age agreement with the Mexican Na
tional road to go into Guadalajara from
Orndam," he said. "The construction
gangs are nor,' in tht most difficult
part of the work in the Tepic country,
the southernmost part reached being 20
kilometers south of the Rio Santiago.
The road has two more years, by the
terms of the concession, to complete
the gap between Yago and Tequila,
and it will be completed safely within
this time. The bridge across the Rio
Santiago has not been completed but
is in. the course of construction and
will be available for use by the first
of rext year.
"Passenger service will not be ex
tended just yet as there is nothing to
justify it until the gap is closed."
Asked concerning the reported policy
of retrenchment on the part of the
Southern Pacific, Mr. Ingram stated
that there was nothing fb it so far aa
he knew. "It would not affect thfc
construction work on the Southern Pa
cific in Mexico," he said.
Mr. Ingram is traveling in his cat

In the ""Wall street section of New Tork recently as shown by the gathered crowds in the street near the brokerage
firm's offices. The first symptoms of the panic came when a curb broker hurried into the Sheftels office and wanted

the news spread, without there being any attempt to investigate or verify. In a few moments checks on ithe firm
were being offered at 20 cents on the oHar discount. Then came the ugly rumor that Rice, an ex-convlct might
have had something to do with the trouble. The firm declared the reasonlor the bank not certifying was because
it was past the hour. But "Wall street refused to listen for a long while, and when many asked for Rice it was
