gave to the press tho following state
ment: "A conference of the highest import
ance In connection wllh the Northern

In this city. All Interests connected
with tho pending differences concern.

Those present Included President Brny
ton Ives, 'Mr. Turner, counsel tor tho
Farmers Loan nnd Trust comapny; Jlr.
Cardoza, representing the second mart
gage bondholders, nnd Colonel Pettlt
counsel for the railway.
"Their presence was had pursuant
to the advice given by Judge Lncomb
when tho receivership question came ui
again In the United States court In th
afternoon. Ills ndvlco was that thi
counsel should unite In tho nppolntmenl
of receivers over the whole line, nnd foi
that reason he decided not to act on thi
suggestions to appoint Robert II. Gallx
way, who wns spoken of In the court nl
n perfectly Intelligent, able nnd uprlglr
man for that position and generally ca.
pable. He Is president of tho Mer
chants Natlonnl bank and was th
choice from the first, of President Ives
who suggested his name over a weel
ago. The opposing Interest, however
demurred and sought delay, expectlno
to gain thereby and honlnc- Tierhnn hni
Judge Lacombe would rnnnrm l!mk-.
ers JloIIenry and Blgelow, who had
ibeen appointed by Judge JcnklnB of Mil
wnukee, who had previously appointed
the old Oakes receivership.
After a long conference all partlct
agreed to accept Robert M. Callaway
nnd decided upon united action In re
gard to the other receiverships. As a
result there will soon be a united, hnr
rnonlous receivership conducting the af
rnlrs of the Northern Pacific company
which are now In the hands of five re
ceivers. The resignation of the old triple re
ceiyorshlp also remains for action by
Judge Lncombe and others. It Is un
derstood also that In accordance with
this settlement there will be only three
receivers. Mr. Burleigh of Soattle will
no doubt continue to act as such while
Mr. Callaway will be In charge of tho
New lork Interests. The name of tho
third receiver has not been Intimated
with certainty. He will be nt St. Pnul.
Of course, the settlement will not bo
complete until the United States court
acts on It."
