The Tennesse Central, an Independent rail
road, backed by St. Louis capitalists. Is be

a new country, which Is richly productlie

much In ore.
Contracts have been let for building tho
extension from Nashville to Clarksvill.

bring the mileage of the system with
branches up to about 20 miles. These con

Two routes have been surveyed, one of
which Is forty-four and six-tenths miles
long and the other forty-nine and two

New York. June 2. E. H. Harrlman, pres
ident of the Southern Pacific Railroad and
chairman cf tho Board of Directors of the
Union Pacific Svstcm, was at his office to
day for the first time since his return from
his three months' trip through the South
and West, and he talked at length on the
general conditions which he found In tho
territory he lilted.
He repeated the statements that he had
made during his trip that combinations of
railroads r.tre mcessary, and that the day
of pools had passed. He made a distinction
between combinations and consolidations,
however, and emphasized the point that the
legislation of the future, where any Is at
tempted, bhould le pro-railroad rather than
anti-railroad, and that the best Interests of
the countrj- demanded that tho railroads
should te allowed to manage their own af
fairs without too much leglslat'on. '
Commenting on the crop conditions In the
West, Mr. Harrlman said:
"In Texas, up to the middle of March, it
was ery dry, and since then we have hid
sufficient rain to advance all the crops to
norm.il condition. As to Arizona and New
JieMixi. as thty are irrigating countries, I
h.ive nothing to say In California the prrs
pects never were better. Crops there are
prai-ticaily assured. In Ore? n the same U
true I did not go through Washington, but
the reports from that section are t ncourag

there has been some apprehension, but the
recent rains have brought that up to about

of about 40 or CO per cent has been broken

Manj- of the wheat llelds have been re

start, and, outside of rather cooler weath

the progress of that crop for possibly ten
das or two weeks. It ought, however, with
normal conditions, to produce a fair aver
Of course, that same condition exists
east of Nebraska and Kansas, as far as
corn Is concerned, and the prospects are
equally good as to other crops.
Ktlatlve to the general railroad situation
"The railroad situation and the attitude
of the public toward the railroads never
were better. The physical condition of the
properties prlrclpallv the properties af
li lated with the Union Pacific are better
than they ever have been, and they are
getting the beneficial results of the Im
provements which have been going on for
the last few jears. The same improvement
Is being continued over the Southrn Pa

It Is expected that arrangements will be
