Disputes Between Seaboard
Trunk Lines and "West
Over Equal Facilities in Trans
porting Through Passen
gers, Baggage and
The Abolishment of the Practice of
Paying Commissions on the
Sale of Coupon Tickets.
The Law Does Not Compel One Com
pany to Sell Tickets Over An
other's Line Done Only
Rendered by the Comroerc Commis
sion in Three Ca?es.
Washington, July 20. Three decisions
were rendered by the inter state commerce
commission today. The most Important
was the one in relation to the commissions
by one road to the agents of another and
connecting roads for the sales of through
tickets. The points in dispute grew out of
the commission and anti commission fight
between the seaboard trunk lines and some
of their western connections. The follow
ing three cases were disposed of in the one
The Chicago fc Alton Railroad Co.
against the Pennsylvania Co.; the same
against the Pennsylvania Riilroad Co. ; the
Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific Railroad
Co. against the New York Central & Hud-
son River Railroad Co.
The following synonis contains the more
important points of the ODinion. which is
very long: The complaints in these cases
are founded unon thn thin! KPiinn nf tim
act to reculate commerce and charge vio
Nations of that section bv the defendant
companies in denying said certain facalities
for travel and forwarding and delivering
passengers to complainants, lines consisting
wi luiuuu ui uuupuu ucKeis wmen oeing
uuurueu 10 ouier competing companies,
give, the complainants allege, an undue
preference to those companies.
The material facts found by the com
mission are produced at length in the
opinion. They show that for several
years prior to the date when the act to
regulate commerce took effect, substan
tially all the railroad companies of the
country, including the complainants and
defendants, paid commissions. The de
fendant companies and some others for
about two years have made earnest efforts
to abate the practice of Davinc commis
sions. About a month before the act to
regulate, commerce became operative, the
defendant companies took steps to procure
agreements with their connecting com
panies to abolish the commission business
With this end in view they sent printed
circulars on or about March lo last, to
their connecting companies expressing
their willingness to continue to act as
agents in the sale of through tickets and
stating the nature of the agreement. The
circular of the defendant companies con
tained a condition prohibiting the payment
of commissions by other companies to its
agents. The complainant companies re
fused to enter into the agreement proposed.
On account of their refusal the defendants,
after the fourth of April last, refused to
se through tickets over the complainants
roads from Chicago and St. Louis lo Kan
sas City and still refuse, solely for these
On these facts the complainants aver that
tne detenuant refused to afford them
reasonable, proper and equal facilities for
receiving, forwarding and delivering pas
sengers, and give undue preference to com
peting roads in contravention of the pro
visions of the act to regulate commerce.
The defendants deny that they have vio
lated the provisions of the act and claim
that they have the exclusive right to con
trol their agents, to fix the amount of their
compensation and to pay them
selves; that the payment of
commia-ions by other companies is de
morali'ng to their agents and often leads
to disci 'ruinations to passengers, for roads
paying large commissions, by division of
the commission between the agent and the
passenger; that commissions consume a
considcrnble per centage of the revenue
from tin sale of through tickets; that -without
commissions all connecting roads stand
on a basis of equality and passengers select
their own routes uninfluenced by agents
having an interest in the foim of commis
sions in persuading them to choose some
The offense of which the commssion has
cognizance are anything done or omitted
to be done in contravention of the provis
sions of the act to regulate interstate com
merce. Railroad corportions in the states
are creations of the state government, and
their powers and duties are defined bv
their charters or by general laws. The
act does not make it the duty of state rail
roads to organize and operate through lines
of transportation consisting of scnamtP
roads owned by different companies. The
organization of such lines consider the
voluntary action of railrond companies, as
it existed previously.
The law in this instance does not in terms
require one railroa-i company to sell
through tickets over the road of another
railroad company. In the absence of stat
utory authority one railroad company can
only sell tickets and check baggage over
the road of another railroad company by
agreement. By agreement between the
companies, through tickets, verv properly,
are sold and used over connecting roads as
a convenience of passenger traffic and an
inducempnt for patronage.
Such tickets very evidently are a great
convenience to travelers, and perhaps to
connecting roads, but they are a part ot
the voluntary arrangements for business
purpoies, like a joint tariff interchange and
common use of depots. It being, there
fore, under our statute, a matter of mutual
agreement whether connon nr thrrmh
tickets shall be sold by a railroad company
ucr uiu rosus 01 some oiner companies, if
follows that the form of such tickets and
the manner of sale are also matters of
agreement by the companies interested.
If companies can agree upon the form of
their tickets, and how they shall be sold,
they have the right to do so, and by such
agreement become interstate carriers, but
if they cannot agree, the act does not un
dertake to coerce them to do business to
gether upon terms that mar be
JwUy objectionable or Injurious.
Through ti;kets are not indispensable
for these purposes, but assuming for the
sake of argument that they may be deemed
"facilities for the receiving, forwarding
and delivering of passeugers""to connecting
lines," carriers are only required to afford
reasonable and proper facilities. They are
not required to afford special, unreason
able, improper or unequal facilities.
This presents the question whether the
payment of commissions is in itself, or as
an incidental to the enjoyment of, a facil
ity, reasonable and proper within the pur
pose of the statute. The facilitv of through
tickets is equally offered to all and may be
enjoyed -without commissions. If the
company selling the tickets should charge
a commission it would doubtless be
regarded as an imposition, and therefore
unreasonable and improper. These com
missions are gratuities to induce special ef
forts for the company paying them. If the
statute does not give one company author
ity to subsidize the agents ofjanother com
pany, and if the practice is injurious
in its effects, it certainly can
not be reasonable and proper. The
state does not divest a railroad
company of the exclusive right to control
its internal affair, to employ its own
agents, to regulate their duties, and to pay
them such compensations as it may deem
proper. The ownership of railroad prop
erty with the power of control over proper
ties and management of property, as is ab
solute under the act as before its passage.
Manchester Cloth Market.
Manchester, Eag., July 20. The
Guardian in its commercial article says the
tone of the market quarter moderate
general business for early delivery which
was a prominent feature in cloth sections
last week has somewhat lessened. There
Is do material cge in prices excepting in
a few Instances where producers have not
sold as freely as they desired to sell, or
where they heid for rates. Business for
distant delivery Is mostly absence; buyers
and sellers are apart as a rule and have
bought less except in a few cases where the
demand was chiefly for plain staples.
China sales have been light though there
are a few orders for the moderate amount
on hand at generally negotiable prices.
South Americans purchase moderate quan
tities steadily. Export yarns have been
sold in small quantities in most markets.
The China demand has improved; prices
are steady; home inquiry is poor. Manu
facturers are not disposed to purchase
forward delivery owing partlv to the be-
lief that prices are likely to be easier, but
the main difficulty lies in their failure to
secure remunerative orders for cloth. In
the cloth market here there is augmented
uusiness, oui mosuy ot a nana to mouth
character. India shirtings of ordinary
width are steady. There have been some
sales of particular makes to a moderate
amount; prices are generally steady.
Testing the Atlanta's Ordnance.
STlw York, July 20. The Sun says:
Private letters from an officer and machin
ist on board the new steel cruiser Atlanta,
to friends in the Brooklyn navy yard, say
that during target practice in "Gardner's
bay day before yesterday the 8 inch bow
and stern barbette pivot guns recoiled with
such force as to tear loose the tracks on
which they turn, and also to rip up a por
tion of the heavy gun deck. These are the
heaviest guns afloat in tue service and those
on the Atlanta are the first of them lo be
tested on board ship by our naval officers.
The letters say the damage waslone by a
charge of ninety pounds of powder. Dur
ing the firing live sheep were used to ascer
tain just how near men may stand to the
muzzle of the great guns when they are
fired without being killed by the coucus
sion. At one discharge, the letters say, a
sheep was blown clear over the hatchway
UYo Yellow Feyer in Memphis
Memphis, July 20. The publication in
the New York Evening News of this date,
which says that Wall street houses having
southern connections confirm reports of
jellow fever rt Memphis is officially de
nied, as will be seen by the following:
Memi'his, Tenn , July 20.
It having been brought to our attention
that reports are current in New York that
yellow fever prevails in this city, we ' de
sire to denounce as false in every particular
all such rumors. Memphis was never
healthier than a"t present. There has never
been one single case of fever in this city
The city officials have been on the alert
ever since the disease was reported at Key
West, Florida, and the disease has not been
reported from any city nearer Memphis
than Key West. Tiie security from epi
demies is felt and what with our splendid
system of sew erage and sanitary measures,
we have no fear of ever again being af
flicted with the ravages of the yellow fever.

More Pay Demanded.
Nkw York, July 20. Previous to the
great strike of last winter when the long
shoremen struck out of sympathy with
coal heavers and also to help out striking
longshoremen of the Old Dominion Steam
ship company, most of them were getting
between thirty and forty cents per hour for
a day's work and sixty cents for night
worK, but when the great strike was lostl
anu iney applied for wort on the piers
they found that the steamship companies
were paying new hands only u-i cents for
night work and they were told that they
could not get any more. Gradually the
companies discharged the green hands who
were taken during the strike and put the
old men in their places. In the course of
time nearly all of the old hands were at
work again. Yesterdav their officers pub
lished notices to ship owners, stevedore and
captains demanding sixty cents per hour
for night work and work on legal holidays,
