NEW YORK,; Jan. 16.— The theory .
that J. P. Morgan and J. J. Hill are ',
secretly buying the control of j the ',
Union Pacific railroad system to re- ]
tallate on ' E. '. H. Harriman and } John [

There has-been a mysterious 'buying '■',
of Union Pacific stock and .certain '
persons claim to have evidence ■ that
the deal Is actually, under way for the
control of the Union Pacific. !The t 'con- '
trol'is said to lie ;in the j open .market, i
That is, neither party owns 'an actual !

Many facts Un connection -with .this
rumor look, suggestive, .the , most, im
portant of which 'is .the. steady rise in
the price of. ; Union. Pacific, from 71' to

of Harriman's; party to depress It.
.It Is now believed, even in' the Union

strong p.ar ties who have taken all of
this stock were working for Morgan
and Hill. There Is much nervousness
about Harriman's office.. ' His friends
believe Hill and Morgan , will at least
get enough stock to demand a retire- ,
