CORNISH AGAIN DENIES SALE
President Carter White Lead Works 8yi
Merger Story is False.
TRUST HAS NOT BOUGHT HIS CONCERN
or Is Any Ileal Font Uooklna z
the Snrrender of Independent
tnmpany tn the Bla
President E. J. Cornish of the Cat let
White Lead company returned Monday
morning from Chicago. He was pressed to
confirm or deny the reported sale of the
Carter concern to the National Lead com
pany, commonly known as the Lead trust.
Mr. Cornish wrote this statement:
The Carter company Is not selling out or
being merged with any other companies.
I and my friends control the majority of
stock and are not contemplating any trans
action that will in any manner change any
officer or employe or the policy of the com
pany or Its position In the trade.
There Is nothing pending mat would
cause the Omaha plant to cease to be
oH-rated to the limit of Its capacity. The
rumors to that eflect are unfounded and In
jurious to the company.
It Is uot denied by officers, however, that
there has been an Important deal In stock
carried on by attorneys, with the identity of
the purchasers considerably In the dark.
President Cornish says he regrets the air
of mystery which' has surrounded the ne
gotiations, but feels he Is in a position
where ho is unable to give out full and
definite information. He emphasises tho
assertion that he remains In control of tha
company and that 1 the manufacture o
white lead will continue a leading Industry
Thorn In Side of Trust. ,
Behind the bare statement made regard
ing tho desire of other Interests to acquire
the Carter White lead properties is said to
exist a story of commercial combat of re
markable Interest. President Cornish de
clines to outline the affair, but it is known
t'.iat for years the Carter company ha
been a costly thorn in the side of the
Lead trust and other Interests as well.
For twenty years the National Lead' com
pany has controlled the white-lead situa
tion except In so far as the Carter com
pany was concerned. It Is capitalized at
150,000,000 and owns every white lead pro
ducing plant of consequence In the country:
except tnosn ot tne carter company, wnicn
Is capitalized, at ll.OUO.OOO with about
three-fourths of the stocs outstanding. A
third factor, that has endeavored to exert
influence is the United Lead company,
owned by the Interests of the American
Smelting and Refining company, and which
is described as a corporation with immense
capital, but no business. The National
Lead company has had covetous eyes on
the Carter properties for a long time, but
has not been nearly so keen or eager to
buy as the United Lead company, so the
Price SuUl to Be Fictitious.
In tho negotiations for tha purchase of
Carter .stock by the Iad trust the figure
of $1,000,000 was mentioned as theousidsra-
lion. It is said the physical property of the
Carter concern in Omaha, Chicago and
Montreal and elsewhere Is not worth to
exceed the $l,rio,noo capitalization. The In
tangible value la said to exist in the process
cf manufacturing white load owned by the
Carter people. It is this process that has
enabled the Omaha coroporatlon to fight
the trust with marvelous and increasing
success for many years. The lack of as
good or better process has kept the I'rrlted
Lead company in its place. The prize In
She possession of the Carter company is
what has made the ' competitors so ex
tremely anxious to obtain control. "' ""
Founded lr Levi Carter,
The Carter company was founded and
developed in Omaha by Levi Carter, who
was regarded as a remarkable man in the
business and financial world. Mr. Carter's
brains ajid Ingenuity raised his concern to
an important position. When he died he
was succeeded about a year ago by E. J.
Cornish. Since his administration of the
affairs of the company began a large pro
ducing plant has been built and put in
operation at Montreal, operation of the
Omaha plant resumed and the volume of
business done by . the company Increased
tremendously. This activity has focused
the desires of the competitors. The valua
of the stock advanced so rapidly that cer
tain stockholders, nearly all of whom live
In Omaha, were unable to resist the pro
posals. Stock has lies sold; this much
Is clear, but President Cornish asserts with
a smile he Is still in the saddle and pro
poses to remain.
BUFFALO BILL IS ALL RIGHT
ever In Better Health and Kow
Italy with Ills Wild
NEW YORK. March J9. Colonel W. F.
Cody (Buffalo Bill) has cabled from Oenoa,
Italy, emphatically denying- the reports
widely disseminated throughout the United
Ht.iles that owing to family troubles, busi
ness perplexities and falling health he la
threatened with complete collapse and
would shortly retire from the head of his
famous Wild West show, which Is now en
tour In Europe. Colonel Cody's cablegram
was addressed to J. A. Bailey, aeneral di
rector of tho Barnum & Bailey's Circus,
who is Colonel Cody's business partner in
the Wild West, show. It is as follows:
GENOA. Italy. March 12 Barnum ,
,Builcy, 2ii West Thirty-fourth Street. New
t York: Strongly dony reports falling health,
had bulne and retirement. Never in
life fell better and business Immense.
I When questioned in regard to the matter
i Mr. Bailey said: "I cannot Imagine how
the reports of Colonel Cody's Illness and
j contemplated retirement originated Cer
tainly there is nothing either in Colonel
Cody's state of health or the success of
th Wild West show In Europe to warrant
such statements. When he left New York
February 15 on the Savoie, en rout for
France, he was tha picture of health and
enthusiastic over the prospects for the
season. This feeling was justified by the
big business of the opening performance at
Marseilles and ,te success of the tour
since that time has been beyond all ex
pectations. Colonel Cody ts so far from
retirement that he has already arranged
with me to return to tne United States
vlth the Wild West show next November
and make a very coinprhenslve tour of this
country with an exMbitlon that will far
surpass anything heretofore seen In the
way of rough riders and sensational acts ot
horsemanship and heroism."
HEAVY FALL RAISES - LAND
Know Ha KaTeet of Advancing Price
a Farm Property In
"The recent snowfall haa raised the pric
of western lands," said George O. Wallace,
an Omaha real estate man. "People who
have been thinking of buying farms in
western Kansas and Nebraska have' been
stirred Into activity, by the heavy snow and
those who have been hesitating have finally
dutided to buy. Inquiries have been many
In the last week, and sales Vave been good.
In consequence of th demand, the land
holders have raised their prices. But thea,
prices have been going up in th last year
or two. One loo-acre out west I know of.
onVrod a year ago for 1,, has Just been
old at tl.tSo. Another sold at $15.10 an
acre, a net advance of H an acre In a year
and a half."
The reports that the Chicago ft North
western railroad would build a large freight
house In the vicinity of Fifteenth and
Webster Itreets has caused a tush of prop
erty owners to redeem property In that
neighborhood, which, was sold under the
scavenger tax law. A large number of
tracts was paid out Saturday and Monday.
