REFINERY LAW NOT, VALID

ard Oil Company,
TOPEKA, Kan., July 7. The law passed
by the leKlHlalure last winter appropriat
ing (410,000 to build an Important oil re
finery at Peru was today declared unconsti
tutional by the state supreme court In an
opinion rendered by Associate' justice
The oil refinery law was considered one
of the most direct blows struck at the
Btandard OH company by the last legisla
ture, which adopted several measures tend
Ins; to restrict that concern In the handling
of the Kansas product.
The oil refinery law provided for the erec
tion at Peru also of a branch of the state
penitentiary to house sufficient prisoner,
who, It was Intended, were to work the oil
plant. Btate Treasurer T. T. Kellv an.l
Warden E. B. Jewett, whose duty It was
to Issue the bonds, declined to Hlurn thfm
In order to first secure a decision on the
constitutionality of the act. Attorney Gen
eral C. C. Coleman filed mandamaus pro
ceedings In the state supreme court on be
half of the state to compel these officers
to sign the bonds. The opinion today, de
claring the act to be Illegal and unconsti
tutional, was concurred In by all members
of .the supreme court.
Declares Gas Company an Outlaw.
The state supreme court today rendered
a decision declaring that the Kansas
Natural Gas company, a Delaware cor
poration, cannot do business In Kansas.
The derision, which Is sweeping in Its
terms, makes an outlaw of the company,
which It declares cannot hold property In
Kansas and cannot operate In any man
ner within the state.
The company has already spent several
million dollars, It Is said. In laying pipe
lines In Kansas.
The opinion is rendered In the case of
the state of Kansas, on the relation of
Attorney General C. C. Coleman, against
the Kansas Natural Gas company. It
seems that when the company applied to
the Kansas charter board for permission
to do business In this state that the board
denied the application. However, the com
pany went ahead laying Its pipes and con-

date the company has expended millions
of dollars laying pipe lines from the
southern Kansas field to the Missouri line
and to a dozen or more northern Kansas
cities, much of which work has practically
After the charter board had acted the
attorney general, In the name of the state,
brought this proceeding In quo warranto
against the company, asking that It be
required to show Its authority for doing
business In Kansas and that if unable to
do so It be ousted from the state. The
company answered, setting forth Its ap
plication to tne charter board and alleging
that It had - done all things required by
the statute, and asking that the charter
board be ordered to grant them a license.
A demurrer to this answer was filed and It
was agreed that a final Judgment should
be entered In accordance with the ruling
of the court upon the demurrer. The court
sustained the demurrer and entered a
Judgment of ouster against the gas com
pany, all of which will have a tendency to
cause the defendant to quit business.
The opinion of the court was delivered
by Justice Qieene, all of tho judges con
curring. The barred company owns a majority of
the producing gas wells In Kansas and Is
capitalized at tl0.O(O,0U0. It has spent six
months In constructing a pipe line from
Montgomery county to Kansas City. , The
company was Just on the point of piping
gas Into Kansas City, Kan., Lawrence, To
pe k a, Ottawa, Olathe and many other
Kansas towns, but under the terms of the
decision. It must cease all work In Kansas.
The court goes far enough to Intimate
that the company has exhausted Its re
sources at law and says that It cannot
come Into court and ask for a mandatory
order to compel the state charter board to
grant it a charter.

No," said Mr. Hogrefe, -Mr. Pollard

will be elected by a rousing majority. The

Brisk Duplicate Order BuiineBs in Whole
sale and Jobbing Circles.
BUILDING OPERATIONS ARE ACTIVE
Rail vray Earnings for June Show
nn Incrense Over One Year
. Agwl)Fcreii la Imports.
NEW YORK. July 7.-R. Q. Dun & Co.'s
Weekly Review of Trade' tomorrow will
In wholesale and Jobbing circles an un
usually brisk duplicate order business tes
tifies to the freedom from accumulated
stocks on the shelves of Interior dealers,
while there is no abatement of conlidtuee
in the future. Structural steel and all
forms of railway equipment are the promi
nent features of the iron inquiry, but iuKt
conditions prevail at coke ovens and pig
Iron furnaces. Bensatlonal soaring of quo
tations for raw materials threatens the
stability of the leading textile markets, al
though consumption Is not yet perceptibly
diminished by rapidly riling price, lists.
Varying reports are received rexardlng the
crop situation, prloes rising higher tnan
would be the case If manipulation were
leFS vigorous, and exports are adversely
affected. Several threatened labor contro
versies have been averted by agreement
upon wage scales for another year and
building operations are unusually brisk for
the season. Inventories show a good vol
ume of business for the first six months
of the year and still greater activity is ex
pected in the last half. Railway earnings
In June were 65 per cent larger than la.-u
year's, but foreign commerce at this port
for the last week shows a loss of 4.1ti,' In
exports and a decrease of !tsK,i58 In im
ports as compared with 1904.
Uncertainty In the markets for cotton
goods has resulted from the rise in the
raw material and It Is almost Impossible to
negotiate for future delivery. Similar con
ditions prevail In the other leading Wxtilo
industries, except that raw material has
fluctuated less of late.
Increased activity Is quoted In the hide
market, the demand emanating chiefly from
one prominent Interest and confined mainly
to native steers of later salting. Foreign
hides are dull. Salesmen have returned
from western trips bringing liberal orders
for spring shoes and buyer In the Koslon
market are operating iretiy on iiuuui ton
tracts. Failures this week In the United State
are iou, against last week, lao the pre
ceding week and i the corresponding
week last year. Failures In Canada num

ing week and 13 last ytar.
BH1DSTREETI HEtlKW OF THADB
Holiday laflneaees aid Irregalar
Weather I.lntlt Baslness.
NEW YORK. July 7. Bradstreef to
morrow will say:
Holiday Influences, lrregulur weather and
crop reports and seasonable shut-downs
for repairs and inventories have tended to
limit the turnover of the week. Too much
rain In the west has retarded trade In that
section, and from the south similar re
ports come. In the central west, the
east and southwest, however, trade Is of
full summer volume, with a good retail
distribution and fair returns for summer
goods from Jobbers. The. sharp advance
In raw cotton has had a rather stimu
lating effect on southern traoe sentiment,
though Indicating smaller than expected
yields, the feeling being that higher prices
will offset reduced producdon. The ad
vance In raw cotton has stimulated In
quiry fur coiloa goods, which Uave been
generally advanced 6 to 10 per cent and I
buyers complain of deliveries. Wool has '
strengthened, and the market for footwear, j
though quiet, has shown the effect of pres
ent prices of leather and the highest prices
for hides In years. Building material of
all kinds reflect the demands of a record
year In this respect. Pig Iron has been
dull and moved lower, but heavy finished
products have been In good call.
Labor Is well employed, and the signing
of the new tin plate scale removes the
only threatened feature In Industrial lines,
which report no important strikes occur
ring. Railway earnings continue largd, tho
gain In June being 6 per cent, with May
net earnings exceeding last year by 8.5 per
cent and the fiscal year will show a gain
of 7 per cent.

X. A. WbLUH, Local Furccaster,
OMAHA. July 7.-To the Editor of The
Bee. Enthusiasm and optimism should al
ways dominate our sphere. Puhhlng
Omaha 1 a good thing, a mlghtv good
thing, for Omaha need that push. To ex
ploit Its industries, it natural right, It
educational facilities, Its beauties. It sire
and possibilities this Is all well and good;
but let u not overboost Omaha; let us not
exaggerate too much. After all. are we
getting there as fast as we presume we
are? Are we growing as rapidly a we
think we aret Are our Industrial Institu
tion Increasing as rapidly as we would
make believe? To consider these questions
It Is not necessary to become a pemimtst,
but It 1 and will be to our advantage ns
a city to give It a thought. To begin wllh,
our retail district Is not enlarging Itself.
This statement may be contrary to com
mon belief, but It 1 merely changing ii
location.- Lower Farnam street and lower
Douglas are becoming empty, while Six
teenth street la now the retail center. Our
retail institution are not Increasing, but
rather on the decline. Think of the many
Did firms that have gone out of business
or sold out during the last few months!
But new ones have not taken their place.
Ask any retail merchant whether h! busi
ness has increased proportionately to the
Increased expense In rentals, etc., and the
answer will be In the negative. Th?se are
all Indications of not so great a local In
crease In trade as one would naturally sup
pose from the general make-bellove talk
handed out. Our plan on which we are
working In altogether too elaborate, too big;
our city government 1 too expenelV'; our
rents are too high; our trade Is not big
enough, not enough of It. Let us push the
town, but not make things look like moun
tain whon they are only hills.
