Republican Forces Impatient; Imper
ialists Want Delay.
St. Petersburg—A dispatch from
Hankow says that the Republicans
opened fire from Wu Chang on Han
Yang, which is held by imperialists.
They seem to be of the opinion that
the armistice has expired.
Negotiations between Shanghai and
Pekin continue, but apparently there
has been a change in the situation.
The imperialists are endeavoring to
delay matters, hoping that time will
favor them. The rebels seem desir
ous of forcing the issue, but neither
side is willing to terminate negotia
Soldiers from the Japanese legation
came into conflict with Yuan Shi
Kai’s body guard. Bayonets and
swords were used and six or more
Japanese were wounded. It is report
ed that more than that number of
Chinese were injured. The Japanese,
as well as the Chinese soldiers, we
off duty, but the Japanese legation
sent out a company to rescue its men.
The incident is believed not to have
any political significance.
Sheng Huan Huai, minister of posts
and communications, writes to a
friend here that the rebels are seques
tering his extensive property at Shang
hai. They allege that the “ foreign
nations” group of financiers heavily
bribed him to favor them in connec
tion with the currency and railway
loans. This he denies.
A dispatch from Hankow says three
soldiers have been courtmartialed and
beheaded because they were suspected
of an attempt to assassinate General
Li Yun Heng, commander of the revo
lutionists. They were captured with
revolvers in their hands standing close
to the general.

Impetus to Business Result of An-
nouncerpent of New Line.
Lakeview—The coming of the new
railroad here means an impetus to
business of which few outsiders have
any idea. Many people believe that
the coming of the railroad means
merely better methods of transporta
tion for those already settled, but the
importance of the growth has already
begun to be demonstrated. There are
a number of new people who have
come here to engage in business of re
cent weeks, and the real estate busi
ness is attracting some who believe
that the approach of the steel rails
means higher values for land. One

filled by a new lumber yard, and as

The town already has one lumber
yard and planing mill, but the demand
for material has overtaxed the facili

builders to get plenty of material,
without using freshly sawed lumber
or carrying stock for a season and
waiting for it to cure.
Streets leading to the depot are
being graveled and put into good shape

Evidence That $500.000,000 Mer
ger Was Once Considered.
Chicago—Details of the plan for a
$500,000,000 merger of the Armour,
Swift and Morris interests in 1902, by
which, the government contends, it
was sought to control the meat indus
try of the country, were revealed in
the trial of ten Chicago packers be
fore United States District Judge Car
penter. The contract which was
dated May 31, 1902, was read to the
jury and offered in evidence by coun
sel for the government.
The original agreement was pro
duced in court by Albert H. Veeder,
attorney for Swift & Co., who was
called by the government as its first
Attorney Veeder testified that the
plan for the giant merger was aban
doned and that in March, 1903, the
National Packing company was organ
ized, to operate certain independent
packing companies purchased with a
view of including them in the big
Under the terms of the agreement,
the three large packing corporations
and their subsidiary companies, to
gether with recently acquired inde
pendent companies, were to be merged
into one giant concern, Armour, Swift
and Morris to receive bonds and pre
ferred stock of the new company for
the value of their tangible property.
In addition to this the promoters
were to receive $25,000,000 worth of
the new company’s stock for intangi
ble property and a large block of com
mon stock for their good will, this
amount to be fixed by the earning of
the different plants in the first year
of the new merger.
The promoters planned to borrow
$90,000,000 to finance the giant cor
poration. The appraised valuation of
Armour, Swift and their subsidiary
companies was given at $180,000,000.
Each of the three promoters deposited
$1,000,000 with a Chicago bank as an
evidence of good faith, but they were
compelled to drop the plan because of
the failure of certain New York cap
italists to furnish the funds needed.
Veeder admitted that the packers
had an organization which met every
Tuesday afternoon in a room near his
law office and that his son, Henry
Veeder, acted as secretary in 1900,
1901 and 1902. He did not know the
name of the association and did not
know what was the business trans
