an order compelling the Moores to

opposition to the propose I bond issue
of .l;::.0(H.oou. which, it is stated au
thoritatively, has been tin lerwritten
by Speyer A- Co. In cinncction vvilh

who ought to know that ihe Moores
purpose now to carry out their orig
inal intention i f securing a transcon
tinental line by pushinp on from Den

not be undertaken until conditions are
more favorable, but it is the present j

I'lan Another Merger.
St. Paid. Minn.. April 1:.. President
James J. Hill declares in an interview
that behind the Harrimau petition is
a scheme to partition the merger lines
between ihe St. Paul. I'nion Pacific
and Northwestern systems, throwing
the entire western railway situation
into the hands of a new combine in
which Vaiiderbilt. Ilarriman. Kockc-
! fc!!er. Stillmau. and ot h r interests
i Mr. Mill believes that the
j petition is the first blow in
ima-is the railway mileage
; northwest in the hands of
I la r rima ii
a fisjht to
: bine and cstabli.-h a new combination
, of routes under common control be
tween ( hicago and the head i f Ihe
lakes and between Chicapo and Port
"I'nilerlyinp the Harriiuan petition
tiled in Ihe I'nited Strifes circuit
court." said Mr. Hill, "is a sharply dc
fned plan to bottle up the (treat
Northern, force a sale, and divide the
northern transcontinental lines be
tween new interests, the I'nion j a
citie taking the Hnriingtoii. the St.
Paul taking llie .Northern Pacific, an I
1h Northwestern taking the (ireat
"lt is not the Northern Pacific alone
that is concerned. The control of
that line is part of a plan under which
the purpose is to shut the (ireat
Northern off en Ihe south and north,
leaving it in a position such that it
wiil sell out.
! have no doubt but that now I
couhl command almost any price for
ihe Creat Northern, up to 2",o per
haps. The scheme of division is simply
this, that the I'nion Pacific want the
llurlington. and the pan! is aiming
to take over the Northern Pacific. The
.Northwestern, if the petit'on succeeds,
will take its chance of" getting the
hlreat Northern. If the Harrimati
suits win I have already said the (ireat
Northern will sell out. We will retire
from the strupple and leave the north
west to fipht its own battles.
