ed on the new Seneca street bridge to-

ASSESSOR LAW MUST STAND.
Extra Session of Legislature to
Remedy alleged Defects.
No extra session of the legislature
will bo called to remedy the law cre-
ating the offlco of township assessor.
Such Is tho statement given out at the
territorial building aftor a conference
between Governor Ferguson Secretary
Grimes and Attorney General Rob-
berts. Attorney Goneral Robborts at
tho conference cited the fact that there
could bo no extra session exiled for
the consideration of onomattor alono
and that after being oonvenod In extra
session the legislature might remain
m session as long as the members de-
sired. This was deemed Inadvisable
and tho extra session was called off.
Tho blanks for the township as-
sessors under tho new Jaw are being
hent out to Uio county clerks through-
out tho territory to be distributed by
them among (he township trustees
who under the new law are constituted
township assessors. In cities of the
first class and in towns tho mayor and
r.incil shall appoint a person for as-
s or until the next general oiectlon.

MAY LOSE CONTROL.
Present Financial Management
Santa Fe-Sald to Be Shaky.
New York March 21. Tho relations
between Rock Isjand and Atchison are
dostlnod to become vory close not-
withstanding idonials that have been
made particularly by those represent
ing the present management of tho
Atchlgc-n conipanjv W. H. Moore D.
O. Reld and W. B. Leeds aro big hold-
ers of Atchison stock. Mr. Reld said.
ft a Wall street man before-leaving for
Europe that he and one other man
woro the largest lndjvldualjioldors of
Atchison stock. V.lulc no donials aro
to bo had frjm those In interest as to
the plans if"- the future. It may bo
said on good authority thnt-tho prosont
management of the Atchison is likely
to lose control unless terms aro roach-
ed with those In control orltock Island
before the next annual mooting of tho
Atchison Topeka and Santa Fo com
pany. The belief In well Informed
circles Is that control of Atchison has
been acquired by the "Big Four" of
Rock Island which Includes tho
Moore brothers Mr. Reld and Mr.
William H.-Moore Is onoof the leist
communicative of Wall street men. Ho
has become cautious lit the matter of
Interviews in recent years and..thero-
fore no sort of confirmation can bo had
from him of the stories' that aro be-
ing talked of privately in high' finan-
cial circles. His roply to questions re-
garding the truth of the story of a
holding company to control five" big
railway systems was that tho story "Is
Important If true." Rock Island Is
said to be the central and .dominating
figure In the combination which Is to
take In in time Atchison St. Louis
and San Francisco Southern Railway
and Central of Georgia. This story
If It has foundation In fact means a
'direct and close combination of Inter
ests between tho Moore following and
the Morgan part'. J. P. Morgan con-
trols Southern railway. The Centra
of Georgia Is under control which Is
friendly to the Southern railway sys-
tem. Rock Island could not obtain
either of these Una without Mr. Mor-
gan 's approval.
