Stubbs of Harriman Lines Says
Competition Between Lines
Always Was Keen,
Personal Spirit of Employees

agement Kept Up Competi
tion for Same Business,
By Assoc in ted Press.
"CHICAGO, January 9. Two attor
neys representing the government intuit
determined efforts today to induce two
traffic managers of transcontinental
railroads to admit that concentration
of ownership means stilling of compe
tition in railroad traffic. The. nttornoys
wore Messrs. Severance and Kellogg,
and the traffic managers woro J. C.
Stubbs of the Southern Pacific and
Union Pacific systems and J. M. Han
ntford of the Northern Pacific.
Both men contended that despite the
consolidation of interest that had taken
plaee between Union Pacific and South
cm Pacific and between Northern Pa
cific and Great Northern, competition
between the lines which are under
joint ownership is as sharp as it over
U. P. Only a Link
Stnbbs asserted from the first that
the Uniou Pacific nover had been an
activo competitor of the Southern Pa
cific on California business, for the rea
son that it had no outlet beyond Ogdcn,
Utah, on its own rails direQt to Califor
nia. Such competition, he said, as had
existed between the two roads in the
past .s still in ovideuue. Union Pacific
lie claimed is but a link in transporta
tion between the Missouri river and
California and not a separate and inde
When asked if ho did not believe that
a railroad which has a large surplus
and paying 10 per cent dividends is not
in position ta favor the public with
lower rates, Stubbs with considerable
feeling said he wished the members of
the interstate commerce commission and
their attorneys to remember that while
the Union Pacific may bo prosperous
now, the stockholders had experienced
many "lean" years and that there was
no human guarantee that the present
satisfactory conditions in railroad traf
fic throughout the country would be
Upon the subject of stilling competi
tion, Stubbs declared it was not possi
ble for this to be done, no matter who
owned the parallel lines under consid
eration, subordinates with a reputation
to mane or sustain would work for the
interest of their lines against all other
lines, and competition must therefore
He aserted that J. J. Hill while prob
ably the leading railroad man in the
country could not abolish competition
between the Northern Pacific and the
Great Northern becauwe of the personal
spirit of the men he employs.
Hunnatord expressed similar views
regarding the stilling of competition.
The only other witness of the day was
M. C. Markham, traffic manager of the
Stubbs on Stand
CHICAGO, January 0. J. C. Stubbs,
traffic director of the Union it ml South
ern Pacific systems, was called as a
witness before the interstate commerce
commission today. He answered many
questions. Stubbs said that the rates
from Pittsburg to the Atlantic, thence
via the Morgan steamship line and
Southern Pacific to California, were the
same as those via all railroads, but he
believes very little freight from Pitts
burg, Buffalo or Wheeling ever went
Asked whether freight could not be
routed by his Chicago office either via
New Orleans or Ogden, the witness said
that tlyj line on which the tratuc orig
Minted dictated the route, lie said there
was strong competition in Chicago for
Pacific coast business. Ho wns asked
if Neimycr, his Chicago ngont, was a
eompetitor for this business.
"He is," said Mr. Stubbs.
"Is he a competitor as between the
Union Pacific and Southern Pacific?"
"As much as he over was. '
"That means that ho was never n
Had to Be Consistent
Mr. Kellogg asked many question?
regarding the competition of the Union
Pacific and Southern Pacific, designed
to show that tho roads were, prior to
1901, but not now, competitors. Stubbs'
answers were not always satisfactory to
the attorney. Stubbs continued: "They
are not competitors for California bus!
ness, and never were, according to my
Stubbs wns asked if earlier in his
connection with the Southern Pacific
the Union Pacific made nigher rates to
California points from points west of
new York than from New York itself
because the Southern Pacific was com
pelled to assume the eastbound haul to
New York in order to connect with the
"That was done," said Stubbs. "We
had to bo consistent."
Wouldn't Cut Rate
Stubbs in answer to questions said
that prior to 1901 the Union Pacific and
Southern Pacific had separate solicitors
in various cities seeking the same Pa
cific coast business. Kellogg asked
Stubbs if he would permit tho cutting
oi rates by tuo Southern Pacific in order
to tnko business from tho Union Pacific
or vico versa.
"No," he replied.
"Did you cut rates on tho Southern
Pacific in order to tnko business front
tho Union Pacific prior to tho consoli
dation?" "I think not."
"You never did that?"
"Nevor cut any rates?"
"Wo never organized any cut rates."
"Aro not transcontinental rates now
about 10 per cent highor than before
"All lines tried to advance rates
about 12 per cent but they could not be
Competition Just as Keen
Kollogg submitted to tho witness
statements showing that the Union Pa
cific had been prosperous the last few
years and asked in viow of this if he
considered the present rates as equit
able. "I considor them entirely reason
able." "And competition between Union
Pacific and Southern Pncific is still
"Just as keen."
"Do you think this?"
"No, I know it."
Commissioner Clements naked if tho
Southern Pacific owned stock in the
Southern Pacific Express companv.
Stubbs roplied that ho boliovod.it did..
Owne Wells Fargo Stock
Up was asked if the Union Pacific
hold stock in tho Wells Fargo company.
Witness was unable to answer, but the
Union Pacific nttorney said that tho
railroad held about 10 per cent of the
express company stock.
In response to Commissioner Lane's
questions Stubbs declared thnt there is
as much competition botweett transcon
tinental lines as there over was.
"Would tho fact," asked Lane,
"that two roads such us Northern Pn
cific and Great Northorn woro under

CLIFTON AGAIN HAS
ITS USUAL FLOOD
No Damage to the Town, but

Tho bridge which ocenslonnlly spans
the Uila'nt San Cnrlos and which is at

Northern road as a moans of crossing
that extromely eccentric and periodie
ully turbulent stream, did its usual
stunt some time Tuesday night and yes
terday there was no rail communica

Warm rains and melting snows in tho
Grnhniu county mountains caused tho
'Frisco river to again go on a rampage
and its waters brought down consider
able debris, which, coming in contact
with the pride of tho 0. V. G. & N.,
caused said pride to fall somewhat.
The damage to the bridge, however,
was slight as compared with tho Hood
of last month, as only one bent, seven

out. Although tho underpinning was
swept down with tho wntors, tho string
ers remained, so that tho damage done

railroad again. It did no damage to the
city of Clifton. Until tho Coronado

By "Associated Press.
LOS ANGELES, Cal., January 9.
Two indictments against tho Santa Fc
railroad for rebating were returned to
day by the federal grand jury. Conces
sions on lime shipments from Arizona
were the basis for the jury's action.
Two indictments were returned
against the Grand Canyon Lime & Ce
ment eomnanv. one containing six
counts for accepting rebates and the
other containing seventeen counts tor
Tho first indictments against the San
ta Fo contains sixty-six counts for
granting concessions to John S. Schirm
and tho Grand Canyon Lime & Cement
company in the shipment of limo from
Nelson, Ariz., to Southern California
points. The second indictment contains
ten counts for giving rebates to the
Grand Canyon Lime & Cement com
pany, the road having accepted tho full
tariff and then remitted part of it.
AJ1 the indictments were brought for
violntion of tho provisions of tho Elkius
act and under provisions of this law
tho railroad, if convicted, may be fined
from $1,000 to $20,000 for each offsnsc,
orn totnl of $1,320,000 if the highest
penalty should be imposed.
. Officer a Co-defendant
On the same basis, the cement com
pany may be fined, if convicted, a total
of $200,000. John Schirm, an officer of
the Grand Canyon Cement company, is
made co-defendant in tho indictments
against the railroad and tho indictments
against the company. The latter has
its main place of business at-Nelson,
Ariz., and maintains offices in this city.
Qot Best Bate Always
The concessions nlleged to have been
granted and accepted consisted of giv
ing the cement company a regular car
load rate per ton on small shipments of
lime. The minimum rate made by tho
company is $70 for a carload of twenty
tons. It is alleged that sometimes the
cars wero not filled to tho twenty-ton
limit or wero loaded in excess of it, and
that on the small shipments and on
tho surplus of over' twenty tons the
company was given tho benefit of the
rate of $3750 supposed, to bo received
only on twenty-ton lots. ,

The petitions for the incorporation of -Globo

for tho last two weeks contained a suf-
ficient number of names last evening to .

committee headed by Attorneys Stone
man and Hill and others who have been
foremost in the movement has been
busy visiting the taxable inhabitants ;
for tho purpose of securing their signa
tures and in spite of threats made in
various sources, comparatively little op

and necessary legal steps were taken
aftor numerous consultations and it is
not belioved that a possible opening
was left for those who have been an-
tagonistic, to dissolve the municipal or

There is considerable speculation as
to the board 'b action in appointing a
council. It has been understood that w'.
tho board would reappoint as membors
of the council thoso who were selected
last October and who suosequently went
out of office with tho municipal govern
ment, as the result of quo warranto
proceedings brought by the district at

when a petition was circulated by sev
eral citizens which will bo presented to
the board of supervisors at the timo tho
incorporation petition is presented. The
new petition, to which was attached nu
merous signatures yesterday, requests
the board to appoint seven well known
business men as members of the city
council. Nono of tho seven were in
the council of last October. Just what
the object of the petition is has been
the subject of some speculation -but it
is hinted that parties who desire favors
