Financial Showing is Made, but Nothing of Particular Interest Developed. Nothing of great importance de- iveloped at the annual meeting of the fjowa Central officials at Chicago last ^Friday. The old officials were re-elected and a good financial showing ,made. The officials came as far west [as Marshaltown, but Geo. C. Call got 'word Saturday that they would not at .this time come up the line. In connection with this meeting the New York Commercial, a journal demoted to such matters, published an in- ;terview with Vice-President Morse of Slocal interest. It said: " Probably the most important part [of the meeting will be the discussion of lihe sale of the road to one of the great stern systems, For some time past ^rumors have been in circulation regarding the sale of the road, and yesterday they were confirmed. George R. Morse, the vice-president and treasurer of the road, who has an office in this city, stated to a Commercial re- porter that it was very likely that the road would be sold. " For some time past, he said, it has generally been considered that the ultimate destiny of the Iowa Central was a consolidation with one of the large systems of the west. Nothing definite has been done as yet in regard to the sale, but there are negotiations pending with one or two roads. You can definitely deny that the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul has about concluded negotiation for the purchase of of the road. I am not at liberty to say which of the big systems, however,will be the most likely to buy It* "Asked, whether anything definite would develope at the annual meeting next week, Mr. Morse stated that there was nothing going on just now which would indicate that the matter would be discussed. 'You see,'he explained, 1 the Iowa Central is like an old maid in new clothes. The road has been through several flirtations with some of the big systems and now that it is in a paying condition, it is being treated once more with marked, favor. As I.have said, the road will very likely be sold, but how soon, or to whom, is a question which I cannot answer at this moment. " From other sources it was learned that negotiations were now pending between the Iowa Central and the Chicago, Rook Island & Pacific and the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy, An other line is anxious to buy the road as a feeder, as it is now doing a greater business than ever before. Our Removal Sale Is Still Going On. Customers are delighted with the bargains they are getting right in the face of the rising market. Goods which have advanced even 50 per cent, are sold by Durdall in his Removal Sale at Hard Times Prices.
