who play for the low prices.

itatcd intervals by trams employed con-
itautly for that purpose.

Testing Prolclit Car Couplers.
An important and interesting test of
freight car couplers is to be made on the
Chicago , Burlington & Quincy road next
Monday. One of the intricate problems
of railway service is that of the slack on
freight car couplers.
It is a subject about which there has
been much speculation and many of the
prominent railway men of the country
liave reached the conclusion that the
necessity for the slack or looseness is all
imaginary. Present Adams.of the Union
Pacilic , a few years ago announced it as
his opinion that a Ircight engine can pull
out as heavy a train without a slack us
with it. Now the Chicago , Burling
ton & Quincy company is
to make a practical test upon the matter.
Next Mommy a freight train will start
from Burlington with as many rars as
tire engine can pull , the ca'-s ' being fur
nished with couplers that lit tight like
those on passenger trains and do not
allow the variation in distance between
cars. Commissioner Collin , on account
of his study of tins question , has beeiHn-
vited to accompany mid assist in mauing
a thorough test. The train goes the lirst
day to Crcston and the second to Council
Blull's , and then a train under exactly the
same circtiinstances , except with the
couplers now in use , will bo run over the
oad and comparisons bo made. It will
rove an important test.

The two young men , Roper and Peter

A short time ago Judge Aylcsworth
sent to ono af the reformatory institu
tions of the state a girl of only sixteen ,
whose parents could not keep her under
control. Now comes a letter from the
girl urging Peterson to make some pro
vision for her , and to share with her the
trouble into which she linds herself
plunged from associating with him. He
denies that he is responsible for her con
dition , but ho has been making such a
reputation for himself that charges stick
Mrs. Jones and Mrs. White arc neigh
bors. Mrs. White has scratching poultry
nnd Mrs , Jones has rose bushes. The
rose bushes have been getting the worst
of it. Mrs , Jones also dislikes the odor
arising from Mrs. White's hog pen.
Judge Aylcsworth had a forenoon of
hens , rose bushes and hogs. Ho finally
dismissed the complaints and counter ir
ritants , but Mrs. White , who is a Ihtlo
deaf , and did not hoar tlio ruling of the
court , kept up her talk until the judge's
dinner hour had passed by an hour. It
was a great single handed game of talk ,
and the judge was so weary that ho con-
eluded to take a rest at Colfax. Ho will
while away a few days there drinking
mineral water nnd codifying the city or
dinances. City Attorney Holmes wil1
join him there Sunday.

SHARP WIR TAPPERS.
low They Manipulated the Markets
in Three .Southern Cities. va
Mr. Sid Pholan of the Gate City cotton
exchange hasioturned trom Birmingham
where he has just concluded a tussle with
Lho wire-tappers , savs an Atlanta , Ga. ,
lispatch to the St. Louis Globe-Demo
"It was the sharpest trick in wire-tap
ping ever perpetrated , I suppose , " said
Mr. Plielan to-day.
As his experience with the market ma
nipulators cost him about $10,000 , Mr.
Phelan in.-iy bo considered an authority
on the subject.
Mr. Phelan has an exchange in Mont
gomery and another in Birmingham , be
sides his exchange in Atlanta , and the
market quotations are sent from Atlanta
via Montgomery to Birmingham , 'each
exchange receiving the news at the same
time. Now if the wire over which the
news to an exchange is passing be tapped
the quotations can bo manipulated and
trades can be made in the exchange to
suit the wire-tappers. Being in posses
sion of the line , the wire-tappers can
send the market either up or down.
"About two months ago , " said Mr.
Phelan , "the wir6 leading to the Birming
ham exchange was tupped somewhere in
side the limits of Birmingham with mar
velous success , and the manipulators
very soon struck us for $18,000 , though 1
had to pay only $8,000 of that amount.
When the manipulators got possession of
the wire over which we were receiving
tiic quotations , they were in a position to
run prices cither up or down by simply
mutilating the quotations. For instance ,
when Louisville and Nashville were
really 07j , the fellows in possession of
wire would send it in at 0 , > i , and their
representatives on the lloor of the ex
change would buy at that ligure. Then
they would quote the stock at 07a de
cided rise and close out , sticking the ex
change for the diiferenco. Why , they had
a dead sure thing , as they were hxing
their buying and selling price , and we
were dancing to tho.r music.
"When the manager of the Binning'
ham exchange had his suspicions aroused
ho did what we called asking for a veri
fication. Tin ; request had to go to New
York , and the quotation had to comeback
back signed by the manager of the Gold
nnd Stock Telegraph company. Well ,
the request for a verification was sent ,
and in about twenty minutes the able
manipulator called up the exchange and
very kindly told us the quotation was 'O
K , ' and signed their mutil-iting selves
'Dcaly , ' which was just the way the veri
fication would have been signed had il
really come from New \ork. They hat !
such complete possession ot the quota
tions that wo could not get the correct
figures from our other exchanges except
by mail. As soon as the quotations foi
Atlanta were compared with the quota
tions in Birmingham the fraud was
shown beyond the possibility of a doubt
and in settling I refused to pay $10,000 ot
the ill-gotten profits.
"Dcaly says ho did not send the verification
cation which was palmed oil'on us as
coming from him. The wires were
tapped on the lirst day of this montham
they got us for about fl.OOQ , which was
settled by arbitration to-day on the pay
ment of about $1,000. "
" \Vastho \ thing ordered the same as
before * "
"No , the quotations were notnnitilatct
but they were taken oil' and hold back
until trades could bo made on the figures
in poasesssion of the wire tappers. The
tapping was done with an invisible wire
and when on the morning of the 1st wo
asked Montgomery the time of day the
question was taken oil' by the wire tap
pers , who replied , Instead of giving us
the true time , they made us sot our clock
twelve minutes slow. As the quotations
came in then the wire tappers tool : them
oil' . In that way they saw the quotations
twelve minutes before they were reccivei
in the exchange , and could trade with at
absolute knowledge of which way the
markets was going. Well.Jwe sohf 4,00 (

tappings 110,000. The vast stretch of
wire over which the news comes to us re
quires a hundred cells in Birmingham for
its supply of electricity. If , when the
wire was tapped , they had done nothinc
to oll'sot their lack of wire , the Hood of
electricity would have sent a streak of
lire into the exchange and the instru
ment would have worked like a sledge
hammer. Wo will guard against wire
tapping in future by puling in a set of
quadruple instruments , which will sup

to manipulate. "
