cancy. A better man could not
be selected to fill the position
of president. Col. Allen has had sufficient
experience in base ball business to fully com
prehend all that is necessary to be done in
order to keep the club in good condition, so
l"hat it can win a reasonable number of
frames and thereby maintain a position of
renpectability in the league. It is very for

ability and cool judgment as Col. Allen to
occupy the position of president. It has been

learning that such was not the case, he re
considered the matter, and last night he with
drew his resignation. It is to be hoped that
the management will insist on Mr. Scott re

Why Scott Retired—The Old Fight Bctxceen
The. Rock Island and the Northwestern.
Now that Mr. Vanderbilt, of the North
western, and Mr. Cable of the Rock Island,
have got at it, with every indication that a
big fight will occur, former events are be
coming significant. About two years ago W.
L. Scott was dropped from the directors of
the Rock Island, and no one has ever been
able to find out why. A gentleman inter
terviewed on Friday gives the following par
"Well, I can tell you all about it. It is
quite an interesting story and shows that the
trou'ole between the Rock Island and North
western is not of recent origin, but com
menced when Mr. C. Riddle was still
president of the former road. About two or
three years ago President Riddle of the Rock
Island and President Keep of the Northwest
ern had under consideration an arrangement
by which the two roads were to secure joint
control of the Burlington, Cedar Rapids &
Northern railroad. Under the arrangement
the Rock Island was to get all the business
south of Cedar Rapids and the Northwestern
that to the north. President Keep, of the
Northwestern, assented to the plan, but sug
gested that final arrangements be delayed, as
better terms could be secured from the Bur
lington, Cedar Rapids & Northern directors
after awhile. There was an understanding
that Mr. W. L. Scott should look after the
matter in the interest of both companies, the
latter being at the time a director in both
companies and a member of the executive
committee of the Rock Island. After things
had been running along for
awhile that way, President Riddle was
astonished to see it announced in a news
paper that the entire road (Burlington, Cedar
Rapids & Northern), had been leased to the
Northwestern. He immediately caused in
inquiry to be made in New York whether
this lease was to be made permanent be
tween the Rock Island and the Northwestern.
He was informed that it was exclusively in
the interest of the Northwestern, and that
the Rock Island would not be permitted to
participate. When Mr. Keep was reminded
of his agreement with Mr. Riddle, he excused
his action by saying that Mr. John I. Blair, a
prominent stockholder and director of the
Burlington, Cedar Rapids & Northern, made
it a condition of the lease that the road
should be operated exclusively in the inter
est of the Northwestern. Mr. Scott was then
appealed to. He professed to have forgotten
that he had been deputed to secure an ar
rangement in the interest of both companies,
and insisted that the Rock Island should
not object to the Northwestern taking the
property. About that time, Mr. Cable, who
was then general manager of the Rock
Island, appeared in New York as representa
tive of the Rock Island. He found that
terms of lease had been agreed upon, and
the officers of the Northwestern instructed by
their board of directors to sign it. He also
found that there was to be a meeting shortly
of the Burlington, Cedar Rapids & Northern,
at which it was understood like action would
Mr. Cable succeeded In securing an ad
journment of this meeting for a week. At
the adjourned meeting the Rock Island sub
mitted a proposition to pay a rental amount
ing to $100,000 more than that which the
Northwestern agreed to pay. This demoral
ized the Burlington, Cedar Rapids & North
ern board, which appointed a committee to
negotiate with both the Rock Island and
Northwestern companies. The committee
attempted to play one company
against the other and secure a higher
rental than had been ordered by cither. Mr.
Keep, of the Northwestern, finally became
disguested and withdrew from the contest.
The Rock Island thereupon withdrew its pro
position and submitted the one which had
been agreed upon between the Northwestern
and the Burlington, Cedar Rapids & North
ern. A lease was executed subject to ratifi
cation within a certain time by the stock
holders of each company. Neither company
ratified the lease within the specified time,
and the arrangement fell through, but the
principal portion of the business of the Bur
lington. Cedar Rapids & Northern has since
been divided between the Chicago, Burling
ton & Quincy and the Rock Island under a
traffic arrangement entered into between
them and the Burlington. Cedar Rapids &
"How did the Chicago, Burlington &
Quincy get into the arrangement?"
"That I don't know. I think it had an in
terest in the road before, and securing the
aid of other stockholders in the Burlington,
Cedar Rapids & Northern, succeeded in pre
venting the consummation of the lease to
the Rock Island, and afterwards made the
arrangement referred to with the Rock Is
"How about the retirement of Mr. Scott
from the directory of the Rock Island."
"You see the Rock Island stockholders
were greatly exasperated at the bad faith he
displayed in dealing with their company.
They came to the conclusion that he was
workin i- altogether in the interest of the North
western and against the Rock Island. They
did not think he could consistently perform
the duties of director for both companies,and
therefore at the succeeding annual election
he was quietly dropped from the list of
Rock Island directors and another gentle
man who had no connection with the North
western was elected in his place."
Rates on Lumber to be Raised.
Chicago, Feb. 23.—The general freight

panied by two copies of the invoice, showing
actual value of the shipment. This is a re
quirement of the Canadian government, and
the lines north of St. Paul refuse to receive
such property unles it is accompanied by such
duplicate invoices. In order to prevent delay
and unnecessary annoyance, the invoices
must in all cases be attached to the original
way-bill that accompanies the freight."
