lM-vicrn Freight Managem in
ScMxion Here Today.
The very unusual condition of the
horse market and the discouraging
surplus of horse flesh in the country
has led General Freight Agent Moore,
of the Northern Pacific to make a
very interesting investigation of the
state of affairs. The horse, as every
one knows, has been driven out of busi
ness by the marvelous strides of elec
trical science, and the increased rail
way and street car systems of trans
portation. Horses are a drug on the
market in America, although foreign
countries have not as yet felt the in
fluence. Concerning the matter, Mr.
Moore says:
"Five dollars and ten dollars per head
Is the price now asked for several hund
red thousand horses, branded, and
roaming the plains, too valuable to
destroy and too expensive to keep alive.
These horses vary in weight from 750
lbs. to 1,100 lbs. each, and as a rule
are branded, on the hip or shoulder,
or some other conspicuous place, to
prevent loss by theft or going astray
in stormy weather. Sometimes these
animals drift hundreds of miles from
the home ranches, but the owners can
always identify their stock with very
little difficulty. Large droves of these
horses are destined soon to be killed
and served by butchers to the trade
in Paris and other cities in Europe.
A trainload is now en route over the
Northern Pacific railway from Wash
ington, in cars especially provided with
hay racks ifnd water troughs, and will
E«.-on be driven aboard ship in New
York harbor and sent across the At
lantic ocean. This "bunch" of cayuses
and broncos must pass a rigid health
Inspection in New York and at the re
ceiving port in Europe. For a year or
more past the freight department of
the Northern Pacific railway has labor
ed to find a market for the surplus of
horses tributary to that line. A plant
was established by private individuals
at its terminus at Portland, Oregon,
to slaughter some of these animals,
but it did not succeed, for the reason
that the European governments passed
a prohibitive law against the landing
of horse meat in packages of any kind.
This effectually shut out the horse meat
pickled and preserved in that city, and
cut off an industry that promised to
be very profitable to the enterprising
proprietor, as well as a lasting benefit
to the hor?e ranchers on the plains in
providing a market for stock almost
valueless for any other purpose.
"It is only a few years since that
tales of adventure, reading like ro
mance, were written about the cap
ture and slaughter of magnificent spec
imens of wild horses in the extreme
West which were supposed to be de
scendants from animals escaped or
abandoned during the Spanish con
quests, some drliting tc the North It

tana, Wyoming, Idaho su-.d Washing

of enterprises which were proiee'ed en

or twelve years. Rome of the finest
horses in Europe were Imparted for
breeding- purposes and or, nearly all

ried on extensively. The early com
pletion of the Northern Pacific afford
ed transportation facilities for reach
ing the markets in the Eastern and
Middle states, and the great ranges
heretofore abounding In elk, deer, and
buffalo were soon occupied by large
droves of horses, many of which w T ere
driven over from Arizona, Texas, and
Mexico, to fatten on the nutritious
buffalo or bunch grass. Immense for
tunes were made in this way, and
'cattle kings' were numbered by the
score; but when the electric device and
cables for street railway cars were
adopted, profits gradually diminished
until instead of there being a gain
there was a constant loss. When the
bicycle came into general use the in
dustry received the fatal blow. Many
who were in the habit of using saddle
horses found that the bicycle did not
require tc be "broke in," nor did it
require feeding or stahHne
many respects the machine was cap
able of being applied to greater use
than the horse.
"According to the secretary of ag
riculture of this government there are
?T?nni£!ll Ho , n> flve hundred thousand
(1.500,000) horses between the Twin
Cities and the North Pacific coast in
the states before mentioned. Several
hundred thousand of these animals
could be disposed of and not be missed-

'•The enterprise of the Northern Pa
cific railway is worthy of encourage
ment; and it is hoped that the secre
tary of agriculture and other govern
ment officials at Washington will make
a strong effort to remove the obstacle
which now prevents the canning and
pickling of horse meat in America for
export to Europe. There could not be
a better way for the classes in Pans
and other places in Europe, who are
partial to horse meat, to secure excel
lent meat free from diease, than in the
wild and untamed steed from the prai
ries of the great Northwest.
"The trainload now being shipped
across the briny ocean is in a measure
experimental. The rail lines east of
Chicago having refused to make a rate
proportionate to the rate adopted by
the lines west of Chicago. If the Cen
tral Traffic and Trunk Line associa
tions would apply cattle rates on
horses (worth about one- third as much
as cattle), the success of the enter
prise would at once be assured; but
they have refused to apply less than
their tariff rate for valuable horses,
which is nearly 50 per cent in excess of
the rate for cattle. Many of the indi
vidual lines are favorable to the prop
osition, and it is hoped that the asso
ciation will reconsider the proposition
for a reduction to a basis approximat
ing the present cattle tariff, to apply
on animals of low value in train loans
when destined to Europe. The ocean
ships are provided with stationary pens
for the safe handling of live stock, and
all that remains to insure clearing the
ranges of the cheap hores is the adop
tion of the rates proposed.
"If the government officials at Wash
ington are successful In their negotia
tions with the European authorities for
the removal of the restriction against
horse meat in packages from America,
parties having plenty of capital are
willing to open a large and expensive
plant, constructed by the Marquis de
Mores several years ago, at Medora,
N. D., for the purpose of slaughtering
cattle, and will add to it a pickling anrt
canning branch, for the purpose of
slaughtering these horses."

MILWAUKEE, Wis., Sept. 23. — The
complicated muddle growing out of the
receivehshlp of the Northern Pacific, the
Chicago & Northern Pacific, and the
Wisconsin Central lines, in which all
have preferred claims- and counter
claim 3, has been amicably settled. The
Chicago & Northern Pacific will soon
follow the Northern Pacific, its parent
corporation, in emerging from a re
ceivership. It is stated that the plan
or reorganization has been practically
perfected, and that the notices of the
sale of the road under a decree by
Judge Jenkins, will shortly be issued.
Henry W. Bishop, master in chancery
of thee ircuit court for the Northern
district of Illinois, will sell the prop
erty. The road must bring $10,000,000,
the purchaser., in addition, assuming
two mortgages, one to the City of Chi
cago for $650,000, and the other to Ed
win A. Abbott and John A. Stewart for
$394,000, together with minor obliga
tions. The sale will take place from
the steps of the Cook county court*
house at such time as Mr. Bishop may
appoint. In the selection of the day
of sale, Mr. Bishop will be governed
by the wishes of the reorganization
The terms of the agreement between
the Chicago & Northern Pacific, the
Northern Pacific and the Wisconsin
Central lines will probably never be
made public, but in taking the dis
pute out of court, have robbed the
proceeding of one of its knottiest
questions, tne settlement of which rail
road and corporation attorneys have
been watching with a great deal of

PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 23.— A1l of the as
sets of the Philadelphia & Reading Railway
company and the Philadelphia & Reading Coal
and Iron company, which are in the hands
of the receivers of the Reading company,
were sold today at public auction to H. C.
Koster, a member of the firm cf J. P. Mor
gan & Co., of New York, who represent the
reorganization committee, for $4,500,000.
Among those present were President Joseph
Harris, of the Philadelphia & Reading com-*
pany; J. Lowbar Welch, one of the receivers;
Col. James Boyd, one of the managers of the
road; Judge Campbell, solicitor of the Read
ing company; F. W. Whitridge and F. lii-
Stetson, of New York; George P. Baer, of
Reading; L. C. Cleeman, trust officer of the
Pennsylvania company for granting annuities',
and Samuel Dixon and Thomas ftart, Jr.,
counsel for the receivers. The sale took
place in the old Philadelphia & Reading
depot, at Thirteenth and Callowhill streets.
The assets were divided into three parcels:
First the shares and bonds pledged as col
lateral securities under the terms of an
agreement dated Jan. 2, 1892, for the payment
of an issue of $10,000,000 collateral trust
bonds. This parcel amounted to J15.554 500.
C. H. Koster bid $3,000,000 for the parcel.
The right to knock the property down to the
bidder was reserved until a bid for the whole
was made.
The second parcel, amounting to $23,257,253,
included stocks and bonds owned by ths
Philadelphia & Reading Railroad company,
and the Ccal & Iron company, all subject to
pledges. Mr. Kcster bid $1,000,000. Thero
was no other bidder.
Parcel No. 3, all the right, title and inter
est of the Philadelphia & Reading Railroad
company in and to certain bonds of the Phil
adelphia & Reading Coal & Iron company.
One datwJ July l 1874, for the principal sum
of $30,000,000, and the other dated December
28. 1876, for the principal sum of |10,000,00 U.
Again Mr. Koater was the bidder. He hahied
$100,000 as the price. The auctioneer then
offered the whole lot and Mr. Koater bid $4.
--500,000, which was $400,000 above the total
price in the separate bids. AH of the securi
ties aro subject to pledges. Just as Mr. Kos
ter was about to bid on parcel No. 2, Rob
ert L. Luce, of New York, representing Hetty
H. R. Qieen, arose and protested against
the sale, on the ground that it was illegal.
The protest was laid on the auctioneer's table,
and the sale proceeded without further in
terruption. The property -subject to the gen
eral mortgage was offered at auction at 10
The property which is subject to the gen
eral mortgage was sold at noon. It, too, was
divided into three parcels, as described In
the advertisement, with a par value of $42,
--785,173.85. The first parcel was knocked down
to Mr. Coster for $7,500,000; the second par
cel, which was to secure obligations amount
ing to $12,500,000, went to the same gentle
man for a like amount, while the third parcel
was also bought by Mr. Coster for $1,000,000.
Prior to the sale of the third parcel, counsel
for Mrs. Green entered a protest against the
sale of the property. The second parcel is
subject to two mortgages, one of $158,000
plven by the Coal and Iron company on the
Hartman, Myer, Sehall and Reed Coal trusts,
and another of $150 000 given by the Coal com
pany on the Eagle Hill coal tract. Mr. Cos
ter deposited with the auctioneer three checks
of $100,000 each, drawn by J. Pierpont Mor
gan & Co., to bind the sale-.
Today's sale was the largest of the kind
that has ever been held in this country, not
excepting the Northern Pacific sale. The par
value of the property of the Philadelphia &
Reading Coal and Iron company is estimated
at $250,000,000. The outstanding Indebtedness
amounts to about $45,000,000. on which there
is unpaid interest amounting to $6,000 000.
The total amount of the sale today was $20,
Chairman Mldgley'tt Circular. Which
Charges "Disorder."
Is the Western Freight association
going to smash? It looks so, judging
from the communication which Chair
man Midgley has sent to the members
of that organization, which he has
termed "An Appeal for Orderly Meth
ods." But then Chairman Midgley is
generally called a voluminous sort of
a fellow who writes letters whether
there is anything to write about or
not. The letter practically admits that
the association Is on the verge of the
rocks. It charges many of the roads
with ignoring his office entirely, and
beseeches the contrary members to
live up to agreements and keep in
touch with the association. The chair
man says:
To the Traffic Officers of the Associated
Roads: The disorderly manner in which
some members (not all) are proceeding in
the publication of individual tariffs results
in no specific advantage to the companies
which thus act. The method referred to is,
without waiting to advise this office or asso
ciate members or competitors, to notify the
interstate commerce commission at Washing
ton of Intention to make effective reduced
rates. It is not asking to much to request
members, until better conditions can be in
augurated—which will surely be done before
long— simultaneously with your advice to the
commission to inform the undersigned of
your indentions. Several members have in
s ructed in accordance with the* fore
going, and no disadvantage will re
sudt from all parties doing like
wise. We are certain to be ultimately
informed, but two days are apt to elapse be
fore the bulletin from the joint agent em
ployed by the Western trunk line committee
reaches this office. Inasmuch as it is certain,
then, to come to our knowledge, members
should have no valid objections in advising
us as promptly as they do the tribunal at
Washington. The entire procedure in ignor
ing established usages to which members
have solemnly agreed strictly to conform is
indefensible, and as a special meeting can
be compelled monthly, If need be, on the re
quest of any party, in order to make effect
ive in a considerable way a desired rate,
there ought to be & speedy return to reason
in the manner of effecting changes in the
agreed rates, rules and regulations. Inas
much as the latter Is possibly too much to
hope for at once, you are at least earnestly
requested to give the assurance first herein
before requested and to fail not in observing
it. Yours respectfully — J. W. Midgley,
Western Roads to Cut Off Expense
In the East.
Under authority of the Western Pas
senger association, a radical change
will be made Oct. 1, In the matter of
ticket agencies, and joint business with
brokers. Pressure has been brought
to bear by Eastern roads for many
months seeking to have Western roads
abolish their order agencies in East
ern territory, and to refuse commis
sions to other than duly authorized
agents, which virtually means an end
to all dealings between regular passen
ger officials and brokers.
Eastern roads claim to have suffered
by the manipulation of rates by brok
era who hold ticket orders. This prac
tice has deprived Eastern ticket agents
of their commissions. A short tlir.e
ago Eastern roads m&de a peremptory
order on Western roads to withdraw
their orders, and, as i» o act
ion was taken a Berlcms rupt
ure of friendly relations was threat
ened. But the adoption of the resolu
tion will prevent further trouble. The
transcontinental lines have agreed to
follow suit Oct. 31, which will make
the new system universal. Th-e resolu
tion adopted by the Western Passenger
association is as follows:
"Resolved, That after Ont. 1, all so
called order agencies with brokers, and
the sale of orders or tickers of theae
Lr.es through brokers or .'tVir similar
outside agencies, or :h« placing of pre
paid orders in the hands of other than
authorized agents and representatives
of these com paries (and them only to
be used ftw legrittmate purposes, and
on which no corruraH&iorj shall be paid)
shall be discontinued; also that on and
after that date nu rctuntajton or other

Over tfee Outcome of the Commerce
Commission Hearing,
CHICAGO, Sept. 23.— The Western
roads are in high feather over the
manner in which they passed through
the inquiry made by the interstate
commerce commission during the last
few days. The only matter of espe
cial interest was the question of re
billing, and as the roads claim that
.stopping grain in transit to allow it
to be cleaned, does not in any way in
terfere with the provisions of the In
tprstate commerce law, they are feel
mg very comfortable over the out
come. The fight between the antl
etevator and the elevator factions, on
the Chicago board of trade, in which
the former alleges that the latter is
afforded special privileges by the rail
roads might have developed some in
teresting evidence if the commission
had been able to reach it. It will
probably be taken up the next meeting
held by the commission in this city.
The Western roads have voted down
a proposition to abolish all stop-over
privileges in connection with tickets
to Utah and Montana points and make
all tickets for these places good for
continuous passage only.

American Academy of Railroad Sur
geons met at the Auditorium hotel to

foreign Strength anil Light Re
ceipt* In th«£ Nctrth-tveiit Respon
sible for an Excited Session.
CHICAGO, Sept. 23. — December wheat
closed today at an advance of 2%c, after an
excited session. The sharp advance in for
eign markets and light Northwest receipts
created a regular scramble to cover, and
the advance was the result. Corn followed
wheat and closed %c higher. Oats advanced
Vie higher and provisions 2%c lower to 5c
higher. The Berlin wheat market came
strong at the opening and from % mark to
1% marks higher than it closed yesterday.
Liverpool opened steady for spot and %d
higher for futures of red American. This,
with reduced Northwest receipts, was suf
ficient to start the market at a substantial
advance. The owning for December was
from C2%c to tiSc, mostly at the latter
figure, against yesterday's closing price of
62%e, and, after a momentary hesitation, it
started on a buiga which carried the price
up to 6414 c, before a halt occurred. In the
Northwest the sltuat-'.on was much stronger
and prices nad a sharp advance, both in
Minneapolis and Dulith. The Northwest re
ceipts today were only 640 cars, or nearly
300 cars less than a week ago, and 175 cars
j less than a year ago. The threshing returns
in the Northwest were reported to be disap
pointing and estimates ol crops in the Da
kotas and Minnesota showed reductions. The
strength of the foreign market at the open
ing was a decidedly disagreeable surprise
to many. Anticipating a reaction after the
recent advance, many <of the big speculators
Bold heavily yesterday, and their effort to
cover resulted for a while In a scramble to
1 get wheat at almost . any price. Realizing
was heavy and caus«d several minor reac-
I tions. Chicago received IS9 ears, compared
with 63 on the corresponding day of the year
before. Only 3 were of contract quality. The
export clearances were liberal, equal to 407,
--000 bushela in wheat and flour together.
The closing cables were Btrong. Liverpool
rioted an advance for the day of %d per
bushel for futures of red wheat, and %d for
spot No. 1 northern. Antwerp repeated yes
terday s quotations, but Berlin closed with
a rise of 3% marks for September and 3
marks for October wfceat. The market here
was consistently bullish up to the close. De

BullUb Sentiment Dlttplayi-d la (lie
Grnlu Fltm.
Everything was bullish again. Cables came
nigner and stronger, cash wheat was badly
wanted in all markets, and there was no
change ia the general bullish sentiment of
the trade.
The trade appeared very hungry for cash
wheat again, and notwithstanding the fact
that December wheat took another sharp up
turn at the opening the prices of the cash
article kept pace with the advance in the
future, and In not a few cases a slight pre

It Was tue One Active Specialty
That Was Raided by the Bear
NEW YORK, Sept. 23.— The stock market
was slightly more active than on Tuesday,
but ihe distribution of the dealings was very
indifferent, two stocks figuring for over one
half of the aggregate business. These were
Sugar and Reading. The first mentioned ap
peared to traders to be vulnerable on ac
count of the recent liquidation in it, and that
contingent made persistent and fairly effect
ive efforts to depress the price. Reading
was favorably affected by the news of the
sale of the various properties to the reorgan
ization committee, although, as stated in
these dispatches, there is a remote possibil
ity of delay in completing the deal, pending
the confirmation of the sale by the court.
The market generally was irregular, with a
s-trong undertone, based to a considerable
extent on the widening market for mercan
tile paper, which is the more encouraging as
the period of the October remittances cra.w3
near, with an increasing disposition on the
part of the trust companies to put out time
funds on less exacting conditions. The al
leged prospect of an advance in the Bank
of England rate of discount tomorrow to 3
per cent, and a slight stiffening in exchange
rates, late in the day, were utilized by the
bears against the market, but except in Su
gar, there was no appreciable pressure of
long stock in the active list. Cordage stocks
were conspicuous for renewed activity and
strength, based in part on the prospective
early issue of the new securities. The shares
rose 1£3% per cent, the last in the guar
anteed, and the bonds rose 4 per cent. Tha
market closed heavy at slight general gains.
The Reading isssues were the features of the
bond trading and scored material gains.
Governments were quiet but firmer on deal
ings of $14,000. State issues commanded more
atention than usual, and decided gains were
scored in Tennessee and Alabama liens. The
transactions were $6,000.
The total sales of stocks today were 221,837
shares, including the following: Tobacco,
5,400; Atchison, 3,200; Sugar, 65,500; B. & 0.,
