The Kansas City Journal tin's morn ing ])rintpd the followine siory of the proposed mcrRcr of tlie ccmont p|auts ^ in Kansas, which does not tell nil that the IntPreatcd public desires to know, but tells a little more thnn has heretofore b<'en published. As all of the Allen County plants are involved as well as the plants elsewhere in thiB state in which" lolans own stock, the prospect of the merBor, with its one fighting chance of saving a hopeless situation, is of great Interest. Aa the clipping states, the next move will be the submission of the plans to the stockholders. The Journal story follows: "Representatives of the cement industries, situated in ilie Gas bo'It of Kansas and Oklahoma and one company near Kansas City, Mo., fifteen in all, were in continuous session in the Dwight building all of last week with a view to formulating a merger company. The representatives, who declined to discuss tlieir presence in Kansas City, did, it is known, apree upon a merger company, and have pone- back home to accomplish the ratification of their plans by the stock holders in the various companies. The three cement plants in Colorado the. Yocemento plant at Vocenicnto Kansas, and the Bonner Portland plant at Bonner Springs, Kas. are not included in the merger. "In order lo arrive at the value of the fifteen plants separately, the American Appraisal Ql)nn*py. of waukee, whose word li <° flDan^ clal circles, wa« employed to appraise the plants.

"What the government does with nearly $1,000,000,000 each year" said the President, "Is as of as much con- •ern to the average citizen as is the Ti '.anncr of obtaining this amount of money for the public u.-'c."
