RUMOR UHDER INQUIRY
Union Pacific to Be Shut Out of
PREAT OF THE SOUTHERN
Officiate of tlio Department of JuHtlco
and Interstate Commerce Coin in 1k
hIoii Are Looking Into the. Matter.
All Government nights Will Bo
Fully Protected by tho Courts.
Law officers of ttie coverncnint are In
terested In a rumor which was printed
last week to the effect that the Southern
Pacific Railroad Company had notified tho
Union 1'aclfic Itallroad Company that after
NoTemt)cr it would refuse to run trains from
Ogden to the Paclf lecoast In connection w ltli
the Union Pacific trains, thus practically
shutting out the latter road from Pacific
No official intimation to this effect has
reached either the. Department of Justice
or the Interstate Commerce Commission,
but the matter Is under inquiry by the of
ficials of both divisions of the Kovcrnmejit.
No expression of opinion regarding the
possibilities of the case will be made at
either department, In view of the fact that
it may come before them for action; all
that they in ill say Is, in tho. language of
Attorney General Harmon "That all tho
rights of the government, whatever they
are, will l;e fully protected "
A Judicial decision has recently been
made, respecting the obligations rest
ing upon a railroad company to establish and
maintain "running connections" with an
other, and it is of interest In this connection.

compel it to accept at Portland from the
Short Line in the tatter's cars, freight
destined for Pugct Sound points, advance
to the delivering company the amount of
freight charges due It, und collect the whole
transportation iharges from the consignee
The order was asked by the Short Line
Company on the ground that it was a "run
ning connection," sanctioned by custom
among railroads and was required not
ouly by the terms of thecharter of theNorth
eru Pacific Company, but by the Inter
state commerce act as well.
Judge Field, of the Supreme Court of
the United States, on circuit, refused to Is
sue the order. Judge Deady, of the district
court, dissenting. On appeal to the cir
cuit court of apiieals the altloh of Judge
Field was sustained In an opinion ren
dered by Judge McKcnna. Adopting, the
definition passed by Judge Field, the court
of nppcals said:
"The running connection which must
be icrmltted by the defendant Is not a
running over its lines, but only in connec
tion with It, n provision Intended to secure
the transportation nnd cxclungoof freight
between connecting Unci,, and not the
use of each other's roads by the cars of
such companies. We aro of opin
ion that a running connection of one road
with another, within the meaning of the
defendant's charter, only Includes such
arrangements as the time of arrival and
departure of trains, nnd as to stations,
platforms, and other facilities as will en
able companies desiring to connect to do
so without detriment or serious Incon
venience." NO POWER TO COMPEL.
The Interstate Commerce Commission
early In its existence, according to the
statement of Secretary Mosely, came to
the conclusion, over the dissent of Commis
sioner Morrison, that, under the law, it
had no power to compel the establishment
and maintenance of through routes by
the co-operation of certain railroads.
There is, however, a provision In the act
granting n charter of the Union Pacific
Railroad Company which, it 13 believed,
can be invoked toi prevent the Southern
Pacific Company from carrying out its
reported intention of breaking off connec
tion with the Union Pacific at Ogden,
rcdutliig it to a purely local line, and de
priving it of the. power to meet its obli
gations to the government, ns regards Its
bonded debt. Section 12 reads in part-
"The track upon the entire line of rail
road and branches shall be nC uniform
width (the gauge was afterward fixed

IlreiikH In a Wutcr JMiiln.
A squad of workmen were eugaged in
repairing teveral breaks In the water main
011 Florida avenue and Thirteenth, street
northwest until yesterday morning. Tho
breaks. It is thought, were due to the change
in the tenjierature. the sudden lowering
causing the pipe to contract and break.
The streets about the breaks are pools
and lakes, and the operations of tho worlr.
men were rendered difficult.
