CHICAGO-ST. PAUL LINES TO IG
NORE THE CHAIRMAN'S
f.'tl II 'ABLE LAKE AND RAIL RATES
'I'll rill' on Lime From "Wisconsin
Pot* *- Reaffirmed at a Meet
The fight between the Ogdensburg Transit
company and the Joint Traffic and
Western freight pools has been won
by the former, and Chairman Midg-
ley and Commissioner Blanchard have, to use
a slang phrase, "got the worst of it."
The Ogdensburg Transit company, on ac
count of its circuitous route from East to
"West, contended that it should be allowed to
charge a lower rate by 10 cents per 100
pounds from New York to Chicago and Mil
waukee and the railroad territory of the
Northwest than the direct lines. The agreed
pool rates between the same points are on a
basis of 84 cents per 100 pounds, first-class,
or a lake and rail rate of 54 cents from New
York to Chicago and Milwaukee. The pool
managers refused to allow the Ogdensburg
company to go below these figures, and on
April 15 it took independent action, and put
In a tariff of 44 cents, first-class, New York
to Chicago, 10 cents below the agreed figure.
The fight was really one between the Joint
Traffic association and its lake organization
and the Ogdensburg company, but Chairman
ilidgley issued an encyclical, framed In the
strongest railroad English, to the members
of his association flock, absolutely forbidding
them to accept the proportional rates offered
them by the Ogdensburg company, except by
charging the full local rate of 40 cents, first
If this ruling had been obeyed It would
have amounted to a boycott of the strictest
nature, and would also have been an Illegal
discrimination against the merchants of St.
Paul, Minneapolis and the entire Northwest,
in that an association of railroads were barred
from making lower freight rates to the
Northwest than were quoted by a combina
tion of lines against a legally reduced rate
of a line that did not see fit to join the East
ern traffic pool.
But the Chicago-St. Paul roads have prac
tically agreed to completely Ignore Mldgley's
ruling; to accept the Ogdensburg tariff, and
to exact no higher rates on Northwestern
shipments via this line than via the pooled
This now leaves the rail and lake rates
from New York and the East to the North
west. 84 first-class, via all lines except
the Ogdensburg, and 74 cents via this route.
WESTERN ROADS CHAFING.
•fTot Pleased With Demand Made by
the Traffic Association.
CHICAGO, April 30.—The Western roads
are chafing over what they consider the ef
forts of the Joint Traffic association to reg
ulate all matters relating not only to traffic
in Its own territory, but throughout the
United States. The Joint Traffic association
has set up the claim that all parties to any
Joint rate sheet must submit all rates
through any portion of Its territory to tho
board of managers of the association before
the rate sheets are issued or the rates made
effective. It further demands that the rate
Bluets shall bear on the .face the announce
ment that the rates contained therein have
been approved by the board of managers of
tho Joint Traffic association. This demand
virtually means that no rate from any part
of the United States to any point in tho ter
ritory east of a line drawn through Chicago
and St. Louis, and north of the Ohio river,
may be put Into effect until It has been ap
proved by the board of managers of the Joint
Traffic association. Under this demand, it is
conceded, none of the transcontinental roads
can reduce the rates from San Francisco to
New York without the consent of the asso
ciation, even though the road making the
reduction may stand all of the cut and pay
the joint traffic roads their full percentages.
The Western roads are Indignant at the de
mands of the Eastern lines, and It Is not
likely that they will extend the latter all
the consideration they are demanding.
Notice was given by the Northwestern road
today that It will Join in making the same
through rates from the Atlantic seaboard to
Australia via San Francisco as the Cana
dian Pacific makes via Vancouver. At the
request of the Northwestern the proposition
to remove trans-Pacific through business
from the agreement of the Western Passen
ger association has been submitted to the
lines for a vote.
PARTY RATES AGAIN.
Some Lines "Will Make Them Con
Inasmuch as the executive officers of the
Western roads were in session yesterday in
St. Louis, considering both the subject of mile
age books and the party rate matter, it is ex
tremely unlikely that these matters will bo
brought up today In Chicago by the Western
Passenger association, but Chairman Caldwell
will probably issue the call for a meeting early
next week in Chicago.
Advices were received here yesterday that
the trans-Missouri lines,which announced sev
eral days ago that they would make a party
rato under certain conditions, had decided to
make a two-third one-way rate for theatrical
and other regularly organized parties made up
for the purpose of giving exhibitions. The lat
est feature Is the including of hunting and
fishing parties, which are stated to come under
the head of parties organized In a common
interest. There Is some diversity of opinion
In tills connection, but as the deciding of cases
not explicitly provided for in the rules Is left

anything that water won't

—saves useless and harmful
to the discretion of the chairman, there will
be little or'no trouble on this score. Many of
the strong lines, in the traM-Mieseuri territory
such as the Rock Island, Northwestern and
Burlington, have larger interests to subserve
in the territory east of the river, and will,
therefore, exercise their best endeavors to
bring about the adoption, pf the plan or a sim
ilar plan in the Eastern territory.
The view- has been expressed that the new
plan may be a violation of the law, but rail
road lawyers explain that a case is pending
in the supreme court, and that as the rates
are to be openly made -they can readily be
withdrawn if the case is decided to be a viola
tion of tbe law.
NEW LINE SOUTHWEST.
Big Railroad Deal Brought to Light
by Sale of Bonds.
COUNCIL BLUFFS, 10., April 30.—The sale
of the Omaha & St. Louis railway-bonds to
a syndicate has given evidence that a rail
road deal of great proportions is on. The
plan, so it is alleged, Is for the Drexel &
Morgan interest, which controls the East
Omaha bridge, to provide terminal facilities
at Council Bluffs and Omaha, and the Fort
Scott to build the railroad. - It is known that
the Gulf road has Council Bluffs in the plan
of one of the biggest railroad schemes that
has been projected in the West for a num
ber of years. The construction of a line
twenty-nine miles in length would give the
road connection with the Omaha & St. Louis.
The company also has plans for a line to
the Twin Cities and other Minnesota con
nections, via Dcs Moines, and the work on
this project is only awaiting the closing of
the deal which the syndicate is supposed to
have made Tuesday.
MR. SHELnV'S RESIGNATION
Freely Discussed by Local Rail-ray
The resignation-of Assistant Traffic Man
ager P. P. Shelby, of the Great Northern, at
Seattle, chronicled in this 'column yesterday,
proved a fruitful topic of conversation among
local railroad men.
Mr. Shelby has not been enjoying good
health for some time back, and as soon as
relieved of his duties with the company, will
go to Europe in search of improvement.
Upon his return to this country he will prob
ably take up his residence on an immense
farm he owns in Idaho. As Intimated yes
terday, it Is probable that such changes may
be made in the arrangement of the traffic
department as to obviate the necessity for
appointing a successor to Mr. Shelby, as the
passenger and traffic departments on the
coast have been made separate, and a West
ern freight agent will probably be named.

In the Omaha office to consider the matter
of changing rates on lime shipped from
Oshkosh, Sheboygan, and other kindred Wis
consin points to St. Paul.
At the last meeting of the Western Freight
association, some of the lines asked for some
increases and some reductions, but It was
voted yesterday to reaffirm the existing rate
viz., 12 cents per 100, and Chairman Pearce
will so report to the association.

is 1,000 feet long and has a capacity for over
a hundred cars.
They report that the new division build

An Address by the Secretary of the

CLEVELAND, April 30.—At the annual

Navy Herbert and Mayor William L. Strong,
of New York, were the guests of honor. Sec
retary Herbert responded to the toast, "Our
Country; Its Achievements and Its Perils."
Mayor Strong spoke of "The Business Man

land, who responded to the toast, "True Citi
Secretary Herbert spoke of the wonderful
progress of the United States In riches, de
claring that it was due to the liberty guar
anteed to every citizen in the country to
purchase In the cheapest market and sell in
the dearest, to free trade among the states.
Reviewing the earlier perils of the republic
up to the civil war, he declared the war was
worth all It cost, for It had taught the North
and South respect for each other, and had
settled for all time the sovereignty of the
federal authority. But new perils, he said,
were arising. Monopoly, Industrial and com
mercial, were resulting In the accumulation
of vast wealth In the hands of the few and
promoting a feeling of discontent In the
breasts of the many, which might logically
lead to the adoption of a socialistic remedy.
The farmers, once the saving force In the
population, were becoming discontented, be
cause of what they denominated favoritism
In legislation, and were beginning to ask why
they could not have the benefits of legislation
as well as other people.
The belief that the value of money, as well
as of commodities and wages, could be flxsd
by legislation, he added, was growing, and
a socialistic sentiment being promoted among
all classes. He thought, however, that the
saving common sense of the people would be
equal to every emergency and find a proper
solution of every difficulty as It arises. What
was needed, he said. In conclusion, was more
political education among the masses.
The Demand for It Is to Be Made
INDIANAPOLIS. April 30.—The American
Federation of Labor will demand eight hours

that arbitration would be tried, but. if not
svecessful, other means will be used. The

Pork, Lard and Ribs All Derived a
Benefit From the Strength of
CHICAGO, April 30.—Wheat had a mid-day
period of weakness today, but In the first half
hour of the session, and again during the .last
forty minutes it was very firm, and closed with
a net gain for the day of %c. The closing
prices for corn, oats and provisions were each
at a shade of improvement for the day. Mod
erate speculative activity was reported in
wheat, the market showing but %®%c range.
The early firmness was due, to a great extent,
to weather conditions in spring wheat terri
tory, and the rather gloomy reports from that
section regarding seeding. The map showed
heavy rainfalls In both the Dakotas and Min
nesota and lowa, there being a perfect deluge
In the Red river valley. Private advices came
very bullish, and there was fair outside buy
ing. The result was the shorts were disposed
to cover. As the session advanced, offerings
greatly Increased, and prices finally yielded,
touching the low point of the day. July
opened %@%c higher, at 63%@63%c, sold up
to 64c, then weakened and declined to 63% c.
Prices rallied sharply Just before the close on
the report that the Spanish government had
taken action regarding the import duties on
wheat, and had removed the same. On the
rally the market became very strong, July go
ing to 64c, where it closed. Corn was heavy
during the greater part of the session. May
closed %c lower than yesterday. July opened
%c higher at 30%c,closed steady at the opening
price. Oats were active, principally in May
liquidation. This was a source of considerable
weakness. May silling at one time at 17% c,
breaking the low-'p^lc'e record by a full cent.
July opened at 1914 c, touched 19% c, and closed
at the opening price. Trading In provisions
was fairly active. July pork closed 10c higher,
at $8.35; July lard, 2%c higher, at $4.85. July
ribs, 5c higher, at $4.20. Estimates: Wheat,

Ruled Dull and Weak Until Near the
There was a fairly large trade in specula
tive wheat. The opening price was a shade
lower than Wednesday's close in sympathy
with advices from abroad showing lower mar
kets at Liverpool. But there were enough
people who believe the Northwestern pros
pects serious, and the buying by these people
advanced the price somewhat. Then there
followed at Chicago and other markets a
general liquidation of May contracts, owing to
foreigners, in many cases, countermanding or
ders for May shipment. The break of nearly
1c which took "place on the strength of this
selling was rapid. Buyers became worried a
little, and some of the wheat bought on the
advance early In the session became for sale
on the break.
Late In the session, on fresh report of heavy
rains in the Northwest, the market reacted,
selling to a high point, Minneapolis leading
all others In the advance.
The cash wheat market Is about as dull as
It could be. In short, there Is not a feature

Official Route of that society to the Republican

NEW YORK, April 30.—Waning activity
was again noted today in stock speculation,
the aggregate of dealings being on a holiday
; basis. Of the meager total, nearly one-third
: was distributed in the grangers and industrl
; als. At the beginning of business the opin
! ion was general that from $2,000,000 to $3,0C0,
--| 000 in gold would be shipped on Saturday,
] and this expectation predisposed operators on
j both sides of the market to Inactivity, pend
j Ing definite news on the subject. The treas
i ury call was also a factor. It will Involve
i the withdrawal from the channels of circula
tion of about $3,000,000, and it is expected
that the depository banks will respond within
a few days. The action of the treasury de
partment is not expected to cause any im
portant change in the'money market, owing
to the constant inflow of funds from the in
terior, which is expected to continue, barring
the Improbable event of material exports of
gold, until the late summer. The impres
sion prevailed, after the close of business,
that the call would result in the postpone
ment of the anticipated shipments of gold.
The course of stocks prices was dictated by
the professionals, and while irregularity was
noted, the more general tendency was to
ward a lower level. The Industrials were
prominent in the trading, and also covered
the widest range In fluctuation. In the clos
ing dealings, the expectation of smaller gold
shipments than had been figured upon, led
to a rally. The closing was steady, with the
net changes recording slight losses.
Total sales of stocks today were 118,454
