Tho report of the speiitil attor

Commission recommends that the
Attorney-flenoral of tho United
States tako action to annul tho
contract between the Union Pacific
and Rock Inland railroad for tho
control of tho Chicago -and Alton
railroad, which was virtually wreck
cfl by tho llarrhnun syndicate.
The most startling announcement
in this respect is "that railroad
competition has been suppressed
in an area equal to ono? .third '
the United States" and "that the
profits of tho great railroads of
tfjo Far West are being used to
buy stocks and control systems in
tlio Eabh, instead of, building moie

should legislate to compel rati! mad
