I : -.1, A tolopram from Judse Pollock of thi'-C. S. Federal court, sitting at Kan sas t'itj-. Kansas, came this inornins to Frank 1-. Travis, informins him that the court had apiwinted Travis receiver for the Great Western Port. land Cement Company and that if he would qualify and accept he tnust report at once. Mr. Travis telegraphed his' acceptance and left for Kansas City this afternoon. I-ater the Asso-i jciated Press sent the above dispatch. Little additional information is available concerning the affair. The Great Western is a Kansas corporation which built and:has been operating the cement pjant at Mildred, in the i]ortheast corner of this county. Som<J difncultles were found in the final financiuK of the plant, but it •was completed and oi>erate<l for some time. It was shut down for several montlis. a- reorganization w-as announced and thi' plant ordered started up. when this word was countermanded. It is certain that fln.'snrlal Iroubles are tlic basis of the court's action In appointing a re <MMver, and It is probable that the Commerci- Trust Company holds bonds. Mr, Tr.'ivls could throw nn lU-hi on the nlluallon and declared Ihiit all the information he jiosNeHsed was conlnln- I 'd In Ills I'.'IcKr.irn • from .IiidK" I'ol- lock.

Since the failure of the, long projected cement mcrRer. which was to have included iiractlcally al' of the Kansas mills, the Monarch Portland at Humboldt and the Great Western have gone into the hands of receivers A mercer was generally admitted to be the one lalvation of the stockholders, and without it the banks holding the bon^s seemed certain <o foreclose on their mortcnges. the stockholders being left bo'iiinp the s;ick. A few stiff-necked concerns, knowin? <he situation, and being despenitely situated fh< inselve.<!, knocked out the inorg- . er, b.->ping that the demise of the wenkoBt plants mit;ht prove their own salvation. Xow the banks holding the bonds seem to be drawing the lines tisht and it rempins to be seen who will escape the to'ls. General nation -i nl prosperity trndoubtedly is the onlyj hope of the Kansas industry. MR.
