M01i, If simple enough 1 The rail
road people won't furnish us cart
enough. I could ship a hundred car
loads tomorrow If I bad the cars, but I
haven't got 'cm, and I can't get 'em."
"Do you iix-an that you are offering
coal a freight to this railroad and
the road Is refusing Itr
."Yes, that's about It I've asked for
cars and can't get 'em, except a few
each day." '
"Do the other mine along this little
branch railroad hove the same trou
ble r ,
There is only one other mine on
this line." ' i ;
"Well., does it encounter the same
difficulty lnnarketing Its coal 7" '
"Not-et toast not to so great an ex
tent You sec, somebody there Is
standing in with the railroad people-.
I supposo they've had a little block of
stock given to them-the railroad peo
pl, I mean. So the Quentln mines
get all the cars they want and we get
only their leavings."
"Well now, Mr. Davidson, I give
you this order: Set to work at once
and bring out every ton of coal you've
got ready lu the mine. There'll be
cars here to haul It when you get It
ready. Good nl),-bt Mr. Davidson. I'll
talk with you another time about the
other matter. I have a good deal to
do tonight so I can't talk further with
you now." .
Davidson went out after a grudging
"Good night" Duncan did not yet
know or suspect though be was pres
ently to find out that to Davidson,
also, the proprietors of the rival mine
were paying a little trlbuto as a re
ward for silence and for making trouble.-
Duncan sat for an hour writing let
ters. One of them was addressed to
the general freight agent of the little
railroad ou wblch the mine was sit
uated. It read as follows:
Within six oar X shall have 100 ear
loads of coal, at th mouth of this mine,
read? for shipment upon orders.' After
that time I shall bare about sixty car
loads ready for shipment each day.
Pleas see to It that aa adequate supply
of ears to more this frelfht are side
tracked, bare on Uis .
Duncan signed that letter with all
needed circumspection. The signature
read: , '
. for th Redwood Coal and Iron com
pany, Oullford Duncan, manaaer and at
torney at law and la (act for th com
That subscription was Intended as
When on the next afternoon the gen
eral freight agent who had several
times met Duncan at Captain Hal
lam's bouse, read the letter his atten
tion was at once attracted, precisely as
Guilford Duncan bad Intended that It
should be, by the elaborate formality
of the signature.
"So Hallam'a got that smart young
man of his at work, ha. her the
freight agent muttered. "Well we'll
te what we can do with him." But
be deliberately waited till 0 o'clock
IUMkt uigut uciuia ixroyvuuJMg). auu
opening the telegraph key at bis el
bow, he called Duncan, and Duncan,
who had learned telegraphing, as he
had learned many other things, as a
part of bis equipment for work,
promptly vent to bis key and answer
ed the call. The general freight agent
spelled out this message:
"Simply Impossible to furnish cars
you ask. Haven't got them." -Duncan
"The Quentln mine gets all cars need
ed. We demand our share, and I shall
Insist upon the demand."
The reply came: , .
"I tell you we can't do It I'll run
down to your place tomorrow or next
day and explain."
"Don't want explanations," answer
ed Duncan. "I want the cars."
"But we simply can't furnish them.'
"But you simply must"
"What If I refuser
"Then I'll adopt other measures. But
you won't refuse."
. "Because I know too much," answer
ed Duncau. "I shall send to you by
special messenger ou the train that will
pass here within an hour a letter mak
ing a formal tender of the freight I
make that tender by telegraph now,
and you may as well accept It In that
way. Your road Is a chartered torn
mon carrier. Tour lawyers will advise
you that you cannot -refuse freight
formally tendered to you for carriage
unless you cna show nn actual Inabil
ity. Iu that case you must show that
you are doing your best by nil shippers
alike; that you are treating them with
an equal hand, You perfectly well
know you nre not doing that You
know you have curs In plenty. ' You
know you are deliberately discriminat
ing agnlust this mlno aud lu favor of
its rival. I make formal demand on
behalf of the company I represent for
all cars needed for the shipment of
this freight. If they are not forthcom
ing, as you sny they will not be, I give
notice that I will dump tho coal by the
side of your loading aldo track and
leave It there at your rink. Good
night" And Duncan abut off tho tele
graph liiHtruineiit and devoted himself
to tha pri'puralloii of his loiter of de
mand. It should bo er.pl i'jicd thai the young
man wss not "mating a bioff" in toe
figurative phrase of that time and
eouhtry-whou he telegraphed In this
way to the general freight agent lie
bad bis fact welt In band. Aa soon
as Davidson's intimation had come to
him to the effect that the railroad of
ficials were "standing in" with the j
proprietors of the Quentln mine he had '
telegraphed for Joe Arnold to come to !
blm by a train that would arrive at
mlds'ght Joe Arnold was a detective
of rare gifts ami, incidentally, a re
porter on a Chicago newspaper. Cap
tain Will ilallam often had occasion to
employ Joe and thus Duncan bad come
into acquaintance with the young
man's peculiar abilities for finding out
To this man, when be came by the
midnight train, Duncan said:
"1 muat know who are the stock
holders In the Qnentln mine, both those
of record and those whose names do
not appear on the stock books. If pos
sible I. must know also what each
stockholder, actually paid for bis
shares. You must hurry. I must have
this Information by noon tomorrow.
You'll need to use money, perhaps,
lie-re's stake for expenses. Come back
on the noon train tomorrow."
And Joe Arnold came back, bringing
with blm quite all the Information that
Guilford Duncan wanted and con
siderably more, for he brought with
blm transcripts of all the correspond
ence that had passed, between the rail
road peopl snd the mine proprietors,
including a dispatch which the general
freight agent bad -sent a little after
midnight that morning to Napoleon
Hallam has got that sharp-youns fel
low Duncan at work, and, as you ar
aware, he knows his business and his
rights. I'm afraid he'll make a formal
proffer of freight and a demand for ears.
I wish you could come here, but of course
you can't o long as you wish your stock
holdings In that mine down there and
your relations with u to be kept secret.
F!?M telesraph any Instruction you
may wlah. ' - , l ".' ' '
That dispatch, of course, had been
sent not from the mines, but from the
general freight agent's office in an
other town. But "there were always
men In those days who were deeply
interested to learn what was going on
among the masters of finance, and one
of these overcorious ones was a cer
tain telegraph operator. It was his
practice to' take off the wires what
ever dispatches there might be passing
between Napper Tandy and the rail
Thus It came about that Joe Arnold
brought to Guilford Duncan a mass of
accurate and detailed information
which enabled bfm to take the high
band in his telegraphic controversy
with the general freight agent when
that person, lata In the evening, called
blm up on the wire in answer to bis
letter, received the night before. Thus
was Duncan armed cap-a-pie for the
telegraphic controversy. And. thus It
came about that during the next six
days there were a hundred cars shunt
ed to Redwood side tracks,, where they
were rapidly loaded with the coal out
put of the Redwood mine.
