Three Circuit Judges, Repre
senting District Court of
Utah, Sit in St. Louis to
Lease of the Benecia Short
Line in California Severely
Criticised; Attorney Gen
eral Approves Plan.
ST. LOUIS. Feb. 2-3. The slock dis
tribution plan for the dissolution
of tho Union-Southern Pacific
merger, which had been agreed
upon by counsel for the llarrlman
lines and Attorney General Wlckcrsham,
was criticised here today in arguments
before the federal Judges who must pass
on tho scheme before It can become ef
fective. The dissolution plan was placed today
before the United States court for the
district of Utah, which for this particu
lar purpose was composed of circuit
judges. The judges who heard the argu
meats and who now hold the outcome
of the famous merger suit In their hands
were Walter H. Sanborn of St. Paul,
William C. I-Ioon of Leavenworth, Kan.,
and Walter 1. Smith of Council Bluffs,
Case Referred Back.
The plan argued today was agreed on
by the attorney general and the repre
sentatives of the llarrlman lines as car
rying out the dissolution decree of the
federal supreme court. The supreme
court, after sustaining the decree of dis
solution entered ln the lower court, re
ferred the case back to the court of
original jurisdiction for enforcement.
The objection to thu stock distribution
plan was entered in the arguments late
today by J?. W.. M .Cut cheon, counsel -for,
the Western Pacific Railway' 'company.
As the -Western Pacific 'was not a party
to the original suit, its, attorney was al
lowed to appear today only as a "friend."
In, this capacity he waa Introduced by
Attorney Goncra Wlckcrsham, who ex
plained the dissolution plan to tho Judges,
but made no extended argument as to
Western Pacific View.
The stock distribution plan, to which
exception was taken by Attorney Cutch
eon, contemplated that the Southern Pa
cific holdings of the Union Pacific should
be offered to the shareholders, individu
ally, of the two companies.
"This disposition of tho stock," said
Attorney Cutchcon, "is entirely unneces
sary. The stock just as easily could be
placed In the hands of a syndicate and
sold to tho public. Why was this ap
portionment of the Southern Pacific
shares proposed'.' For the purpose of
retaining for the Union Pacific some of
its present advantages."
Mr, Cutcheon urged that the dissolu
tion plan be so modified that the South
ern Pacific shares of tho Union Pacific
be placed on the market and' sold to any
who would buy.
The clause In the dissolution plan pro
viding for tho exclusive use of the Benl
cla cut-off, tho short lino between Oak
land, Cal., and Sacramento, by the South
ern Pacific and the Union Pacific, also
was denounced by Mr. Cutcheon.
Maxwell Evarts, counsel for the South
ern Pacific, ln discussing this phase of
tho plan, said:
"Tho Southern Pacific la willing to
grant to the Western Paclllc whatevor
rights It now has over tho Benlola cut
off. Those rights the Southern Pacific is
willing to perpetuate."
This offer did not satisfy the attorney
for the Western Pacific, who, In the clos
ing argument of tho day, condemned the
plan for the exclusive use of the cut-off
by the Union and Southern Pacific lines
as "tendering opportunities for an eva
sion of the untl-truat law as completely
as could bo devised."
'This plan," ho continued, "was de
vised for tho purpose of assuring the
exclusive uso by those roads of this cut-,
off. If competition between the Union
and tho 'Southern Paclllc Is a good thing;
why not competition between four
Suggestion Is Made.
Mr. Cutcheon suggestod that the West

tho right to uso the cnt-off and the Okla
homa terminals. Otherwise, he urged, the
dissolution plan would perpetuate tho
Under the dissolution plan, the cut
off, which now is tho property of the
