Tli< St. Louis institution is made trustee t6 see that all tho n-ijuln im-nts act properly carried out in the issue of J2.000,000 In bonds by tin- cement company, for which the cement company has executed a mortgage on its property. The trust deed is dated Xovember 1, 19U, and tho transaction was au thorised at a meeting of the stockholders on October 24 last. Thr bonds are issued to raise "funds to jwy or secure the payment of thr company's present indnbtednoss and provide additional fund.s, for sueh other purposes as thr> Board of Directors may determine." Each bond is of the denomination of $1,000, is payable .Vovemb<r 1 1«21. bears 6 per cent interest, payable Bemi -annually at the office of the Commonwealth Trust Company. The bonds may be retired at any time at the value of |102 plus accrued interest. After 1915 provision is made that a sinking fund of $150,000 annually shall t>e set aside to care for the retirement of the bonds. To secure the payment of the bonds a mortgage is given on all the property of the: lola Portland, including the factory In Bassett, dam, rock quarjry. gas leases, wells and pipalines, pumr Ing station for water, town lots in lola and the unplatted portion of Bas- -^^t, together with numerous par ens of land in Bassett. and spvera' tracts of| g>-psiim lands- in Woods county, Okla., ""«iukht' from A.

Speculation as to the real mranrne of The transaction is idle. Tlie W> company which has been a leader in the cement field for many years which is one of the very few whicn has paid its nreferred dividends regularly and which is today operating at tnll blast, is one of the finest cement properties in the west. The real purpose of the bond issue is undoubtedly neatly and successfully concealed In the expression which says that the bonds are for "such iiur poses as the Board of Directors nay determine." The board, acting foi* the stockhoiders, "kens its ain business," but Ithere is a popular beHef that, as has previously been l!int"d. the bond issue is a preliminary of the proposed cement plant merger and in no manner wliatever indicative that the lola Portland is not today, a.<( ii has been ever since it started, cue ol the most substanUal and prosperous of the cement concerns in this coan- try.

He sflld there was cowardise in both parties as advocates of the measure feared to vote against the bill because of the possibility of its effect on their elections. Until today there have been ffrw opponents of the proposal to Increase pensions. The contest lay between those who favored' the Sherwood btti, ' " " which establishes a pension based on length of service; and the advocates of the Sulloway age pension bill, which was passed by the House ;last i .spring, but failed in the Senate. ^ "The Sber\>ood bill would grant flS -r- month to those who served mofe _ than 90 days, but less than six mont&s $20 a month for a service up to htee months; $25 a month for a service iip to one year, and' $30 for a service Of more than one year.
