.BRETTON WOOP9. N. H., Sept. 22.
Attorny Wickersham this afternoon
authorized the following' statement:
"No arrangement for the dissolution
of the ateel truat have been made, or so
far a I am aware, proposed to the De
partment of Justice.'-'. '
NEW YORK. Kept, a In two houre of
wild trading today the stock market was
thrown into confusion by a violent break
In price, followed by an equally violent
Recovery. Widely circulated reports that
the United States Steel corporation was
preparing to dlasolve, lncompllance with
the Sherman anti-trust Uaw, or that dis
solution suit was soon to be filed by the
federal government led to a flood of
selling orders. Railroad stocks, which
were affected adversely -toy the defeat of
Canadian reciprocity, also sold off sharp
ly. After the til at sharp creak in which
IJs.OOO shares of United State Steel coro
jaon were sold In thirty minutes it be
me apparent that eupport ' was being
lent by powerful banking Interests and
trading Became steadier. Once the de
cline stopped the market turned abruptly.
With the exception of the Hill " stocks
and Steel common, the early losses were
eliminated. Officials of the steel cor
poration maintained their silence. E. H.
Gfaxy, chairman of the board, declined
(o comment on a dispatch from Wash
ington In which the position of the De
partment of Justice In regard to the en
forcement of the anti-trust law was set
forth. Report that negotiations between
Attorney. Oeneral Wlckersham and of

touch with the situation.
i General List Affected.
The -alump In steel, had its effect
throughout the . general list and there
were destine. of from 1 to 4 points In in
duatrlaU and . railroad stocks. It was
notad. however, that the decline which
the market had H4 within the last six
weeks h&4 given' It much strength .-to
withstand the unexpected liquidating
movement la .steel securities. ' Weak
pots In t6e . railroad .list and other In
dustrials, .had', bea eliminated by the I
midsummer liquidating movement
Representatives of the United States
Steel corporation continued silent, thla
morning regarding the various reports
of voluntary dlbaolutlon of the corpora
tion. , It seemed to be the general belief
to Wall street that the steel corporation
had received' Intimation from the federal
government that it could not continue in
Its present form.
Another factor In tlie decline of the
stocks of the'stesl corporation was the
ijvss In tel products with a resultant
' general cutting of price and the prob
able necessity of 'educing wages.
On. his aj rival at his office today El
bert H. Gary, chairman of the steel cor
poration, declined to discuss the disso
lution reports In any refpect. Counsel
Bolting, of the corporation likewise de
clined to. be Interviewed.
Railroad liiari Lower.
The defeat of the Canadian reciprocity
added to the weakne of the market.
Commission houses report a large amount
of selling -lor Canadian account. The
railway here which - had held steady
during the previous days of the slump In
steal stocks weakened today. The loss
was moat extensive among the North
western' roads- which were expected to
gala the greatest benefit from reciprocity.

Cash wheat advanced J to 4 csrit on
the Omaha market Friday morning, due,
according to the grain men. tothe elimi
nation of the possibility of reciprocity
with Canada. One car of spring wheat

that wheat would soon go to SI a bushel.

today are 95 cents to Si. the highest ac
tual sale of this grade being six cars at
97 cents a bushel. One man who Thurs

today at 9 cents.
Corn felt' the effect of the rising price
in wheat and cash quotations on the
local market were 1 to Ihk cent higher

N. Merrlam, who has talked and
dreamed anti-reclproclty for month6, was
the happiest man on the Grain exchange
floor. He would yell "Hurrah for Can

bought cigars for everybody on the Coor.
Mr. Merrlam says the decision of Canad.i
at the polls Thursday will save Nebraska
farmer million of dollar annually.
The man who could have plucked up
nerve to buy wheat Thursday for sale
today could have cleaned up a fortune.
If any of the local grain men did it they
are keeping quiet about It.

Rock Island Gives Up Hope of Rout

Are th Chief Beneflclarle of

Th Burllngtoh and Rock Island rail
roads have awakened to th fact thai
the Ogden and Salt Lake gateway to the
west 1 not only closed to them, but they
have awakened to the fact that' thla
gateway ha been locked and the key
thrown away. As the situation now

None of the Union Pacific. Northwest
ern or Milwaukee officials here will
claim responsibility for th new order of
thing, which 1 admitted to be the
shrewdest move mad on the railroad
checker board In mainy a year. They
throw the reaponalbillty upon th Inter
state Commerc commission, contending
that It wa a move that thi tribunal
made upon its own volition. All concede
that the Northwestern and Milwaukee
have become the beneficiaries, as they
are enabled to run their through car to
the coast on the trains of the Union Pa
cific the Southern Pacific and the San
Pedro line.
Rock Island 6lve Up.
Already the Rock Island has submitted
to the inevitable and ha given notice
that all of Its coast business 11 be
routed via El Paso. The Burlington
people are not saying a word, other than
iO remark that the matter has not been
dually disposed of.
' The origin of the order of the Harriman
lines closing the Ogden and Salt Lake
gateway to th Burlington and Rock Is
land came about in thi way:
About one and one-half years ago the
Interstate Commerce commission ordered
the Southern Pacific, the Western Pa
cific and the San Pedro lines to reduce
their fare from Ogden- and Salt Lake
City to San Francisco and Los Angele
to 123 68 and S26 respectively. The rate
nf S23.B8 1 based on S cents per mile,
while the rate to Los Anreles Is some
what higher, the commission predicating
the t25 rate on the fact iiiai the country i
'traversed by the San Pedro line was j
sparsely settled and entitled to some- I
what higher rates than those allowed
the Southern Pacific. When the Western
Paclfie opened Its line from Ogden to j
San Francisco, it was obliged to meet
the rate established by the commission
tor the Southern Paclfie.
The through fares front the Missouri
river to California were pot affected by
the order ot th commission and re
mained a heretofore, till fer flrtt nd $10
for second class and S for a nine
months' round trip ticket.
Dividing: 'Through Pare.
The through fares hav always been
divided on percentages derived from the
local fares of the lines to gnd from Ogden
and Salt Lake City. Tht is to say. the
Union Pacific fare from Omaha to Ogden
and Salt' Lako City 1 ILS.tft and the
Souther. Pacific fare from the two Utah
towns to 6an Francisco, prior to the re
duction made by the commission, t'0.
Therefore the through fare wa divided
practically on a basts of SO and SO per
When the reduced fare ordered by the
commission took effect the Burlington
end Rock Island Insisted on dividing on
the basis of the new rate, taking ad van.

situation., developed from the fact that
reciprocity with the United States has
been rejected, that the Laurier govern
ment has been defeated and that R. L.
Borden will shortly be called on to for.n
a conservative ministry. That the changes
enacted during the last twenty four hour
by the registration of the will of tha
electorate are radical is shown by th
overwhelming majority whereby the vot
er turned down the agreement which
Laurier had made with the United State
for the mutual removal of duties ou food
and other natural products by the defeat
of seven cabinet minister out of thirteen
who went to the polls, and by the political
landslide which will retire xf private life
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, one of "the biggest
figures In the British empire.
Out of nine Canadian provinces, only
Quebec, Laurier' native place, came any
where near remaining faithful to him,
and Quebec did not do any too well. On
tarlo, the greatest of the provinces, dealt
Laurier a terrible blow, going almost
solidly against him. and the same may be
said also of Manitoba and British Co
lumbia. Saskatchewan and Alberta, two
great wheat raising provinces.' gave a
mild support to the cause ot reciprocity.
The magnitude of the landslide ap

hav held office for fifteen year and
who firmly believed that they were des
