The meeting of this association an
nounaed to bo held in Chicago yesterday
u looked forward to with a great
tie tyand interest, and fearB
are .■ that the Transcontinental as
soci.--i.ion, whioh was established only r
f _• v months after long and tedious ue
:.:-. cannot longer be maintaii .,'
Th>.- Chicago Times of the 8th in«t. says:
Dnion Pacific claims that uniei
<' j Irauscontinental agreement, it is snb
»vy penalties for a violation ot
... Under the now arrangement wiih
the roads east of the Missouri river the
i itter have virtually beccmo a p art of tho
Ui :on Pacific. All the rates on west
bound business are made by tho roads
east of the Missouri river, and in making
them the Union Pacific has no voice. Con
jentiy, if any of these roads
should violate the California or Transcon
tinental rate, the Union Pacific, under tl e
pr^j.at agreement, would be held respon
sible —a responsibility which, under r e
present condition of affiairs, it is not will
ing to assume. It is therefore, nec<
to maki the terminus of the Transi
ne:iui association at Chioags instead of at
thu Missouri nver, as at present, and tafet
in nil the mads between the Missouri riier
and Chicago. The Union Pacino further
claims that the Burlington, under the pic s
ent agreement, has an advantage, because
it controls it own line through from Chica
go to Denver, and, in connection with tbe
Denver & Rio Gr n « Central Pacific,
has a route to California entirely in
denaudent of the Union Pacific audits
allies east of the Missouri.
As ihe Adton and the Illinois Central are
interested in the Pacific coast busi
ness it is also proposed to take them into
the Transcontinental association, and thty
hiivo been invited to attend tho meeting.
The Alton officials Bay they cannot yet tell
'. position they will assume. They
want to learn first under what com
their road is. to be admitted.
The Burlington and Denver & R
Grande people are strongly opposed to ti
reorganization of the association on th
plan proposed, and they emphatically de
dare that they will never submit to it, a
it is simply another scheme c
tho part ot the Union Pacific com
bination to deprive them of a po
. of their through business.. The
are of the opinion thai ihe new issue h.
been raised for the sole purpose of break
ing up the association in order to en
nble the combination roads to fight then
on the California busines?, as well as c
tho Nebraska, Colorado and Utah busines
The Santa Fe and Northern Pacific wil
probably Bide with the Burlington, as the
cannot effard to allow the Union Pacifi
combination to obtain mor6 power anc
advantages than it already possesses.
J. ft Stubbs, freight traffic ruanager,am
Thomas H. Goodman, general passe»ge
& b ~^ pf the Central Pacifio. arrived her
* yesterday t's attend tho meeting. The
- gay the matter at issue is noneofthir
oonoern. The quest:on of reorganization
• has to be settled by the eastern con
nections of their rcaJ. They further ta/
'they do not mean to take sides in favor cf
eniwr the Union Pacific combination or
luffliigton and Denver & Rio Grande,
bptj& } :b,?pnpy an independent position.
■-•is erc^thrown out, however, that th6
Central Pacific proposes to tako sides with '
the Union Pacific combination against tne
BnrlingtoD, and that the intention is to
have the Centril Pacific make an offensive
and defensive treaty with tha Union Pa
cific combination in case the Transconti
nental association goes out of existence.
. It is hardly probable, ho>vever, th:it the
Central Pacific will do thi?. It cannot
afford to take pncli a step, because it
would conioel tho Burlington and Rio
Grande to extend their line to San Fran- j
Cisco, which can be built within six
months. The Control Pacific at present
controls all the lines in California, and it
ia not likely to take a t tep that wonld nec
essarily lead to U:e breaking up of the mo
nopoly it now enjoys in that state.

President Sloan, of the Lachuxcanna.
Commissioner Fink, by authority of the
railroads heTrepresentsdias informed Sam
uel Sloan, presidaut of tha D3lawaie,La.ck
awanna & Western, that unless the road
maintains the pool rates and stops makiDjj
time contracts at reduced rates within a
otr^ain period the roads west of Boffalo
w Ji s:op receiving or delivering through
i're^ht to it. This would prevent the Litk
avvp.oua from issuing through bills of lad
ing or send:ng cars beyond its own lius. It
would have to break bulk at Buffalo Be
sides, » woni^ &avp to pay local rates for
freight sent by it over connect
ing lines. The specific charge made
against the Lnokaw ;nna is that it gave a
discount of 2U per cent, on its freight bills
to shippers. The r-ito from New York to
Buffalo i3 about one half that from New
York io Chicaeo. Tbo difference between
lvoai and through rates west of Buffalo is
tso preat, but the delays in transpo
on by teshipment at Buffalo won!
se dissatisfaction. Then the discoun
freight bills, added to the different
*een local and through rates, won
•b avery narrow margin in the tan
for the Lackawanna. Mr. Sloan's tin a
answer has not been received. If he doei
IECcept the terms the connecting roadi
cut the Lackawanna off. The Grant
nk, the only road clopely allied to th<
kawanna, has promised to obey th<
tmissioner's orders. Mr. Sloan wai
the first corr in'ssioner the truck lims evei
had. He was appointed to the positioi
nearly twenty years ago.
the Burlington ivill riot he Crowded Out
The Burlington does not propose to b<
crowded out of the Omaha and Counci:
Blnffs business, and will make a desperate
fight to get i's share of that business. At
there, is no disposition on the part of tkt
Sbination to allow the Burlington i
e oi the Council Bluffs business com
there by tne Union Pacific, it is hard
;e how a war can be avoided. It is the
I Burlington's intention to secure all tin
bosinefs it can at Union Pacific points
and have it shipped looally by the Union
Pacific to Council Bluffs. From the lattei
point to Chicago it will make such a rate
as will equal the through rates by the com
bination roads. Tho Burlington is daily
receiving letters from prominent Western
shippers, urging it to stand firm against
the combination, and promising to back it
up witn ail the means at their command.
Settling Freights.
A meeting is to be held to-day at Mil
waukee of freight representatives from
the Milwaukee & St. Paul, Chicago &
Northwestern, Omaha, Wisconsin Central,
and all lines interested in business origi
nating at or destined to Chippewa Falls,
Eaa Claire, Menomonie or Stillwater, for
the purpose of adjusting rates and agree
ing upo/i necessary matters relating to the
traffic at tho several points named. When
these matters shall have been settled, it
can be said that Wisconsin freights are as
settled as those of any part of the coun
try, or ia fact as near that point as repeat
ed conferences arid final arguments by all
the railway lines can make them, as the en
tire business of Wisconsin points as well
as ail of that west of the Mississippi river
Will then be npon an agreed basis of rates.

Sherman on the K. P.
[Special Telegram to tho Globe.]
New Yobk, Jan. 9. —The committee ap- j
pointed to select and secure !
a successor for Mr. ViUard
as president of the Northern Pacific j
railroad are not yet ready to report. Sen
ator Sherman said to-day that the office j
had not been tendered to him as reported, |
but that it had b&an mentioned to him by !
directors and stockholders. He said to
them that he would gladly undertako the j
duties of the office ha could not properly '•
aot as president of tho road while remain- j
ing senator, and he regarded it as his duty j
to his colleagues and constituents to Btick :
to his present post.
No indebtedness to the Oregon Railway '■
& Navigation company has been d.scover- j
ed since the $340,000 due from Mr. Villiard j
was made good by tho transfer of his j
house, but Mr. T. Jefferson Cooledge, the ]
new president of the company, has ap
pointed Mr. G. O. Morrison to investigate
the condition of the road and its affairs on
the Pacific coast. He will start to-mor
Washington, Jan. 9.—Senator Sher
man's attention having been drawn to the
j report that the office of president of tha
Northern Pacific had oetn tendered to him
! and declined said:
j "The office has not been tendered me but
i tho matter has been mentioned by leading
j stockholders and directors. I have said
| while I would gladly undertake the duties
of the office and have the highest opinion
of the value and success of the road, yet I
could not with due regard to my constitu

position of senator, nor could I properly,
while senator, act as president of the
Cuttinu Rates,
Nkw Yobs, Jan. 9.—Notice was received
nt the trunk line headquarters to-day, that
the Chicago <& Alton had cut passenger
ratis from points on to Missouri river east
ward, to thi extent of $4 in through
tickets. It is supposed that this reduction
is made in a spirit of retaliation for cer
tain measure* taken by the trunk lines to
prevent the p jyment of commissions to
scalpers, and a demoraliztioa of the rail
roaos. The position of the trunk lines is,
that they have the right to name the
conditions under which they
will sell tickets for western
loads. If tbe western roads were to sell
tickets through other agencies on more
favorable terms than the trunk lines can
sell, it is thought it would lead to a dis
crimination between the connections of
the trunk line?, and finally to a war of
rates, and great loss of revenues.
The trunk lines think that the payment of
commissions to middle men is pernicious,
and not in the interest of the railroads or
of tbe pnbiic,and if the railroads can trans
act business at less than the published
rates the public should have the benefit
and not the middle men. There is aiso a
suspicion expressed that road agents
and commission agents are often in collu
sion to defraud the railroad compauies
and tin pablio of their just dues. The
best railroad offic^.r^ m the country, they
say, are utterly opp •■■■'■ rothe commission
oystem. The tru^s lines, it is claimed,
are supported in their position by and act
with tbo roads in the joint executive com
mittee, embracing nearly all the roads
east ot the Mississippi river and Chicago,
and by all the western roads except the
Cuioago & Alton and the Chicago & Rock
Island. Although advices received did
not state that the Rock Island
road would make a similar reduction in
rates, it is thought it will soon follow the
example of the Alton if it has not already
done so. A war of the passenger rates
west, which this action will possibly pre
cipitate is viewed with no little
apprehension among railroad men.
It is not known what action will be
taken b;> the railroads in joint executive
committee to moot this reduotion, but it is
said assurances have been given by all of
them that they will refuse to transact any
through business with non-conforming
roads. Commissioner Fink announced
that on and after Monday next the roads
in tho joint executive committee will not
bo parties to buy any through bills of lad
ing issued by tbe Delaware, Lackawanna
& Western railroad. This is in accordiir.ee
with the dicision of the meeting of the
trunk line executive committee, on Decem
ber 31. It did not admit the Delaware,
Lackawanna & Western into the pool on
account of its exorbitant demands,and be
cause i; had made numerous contracts for
transportation at reduced rates, sorm-. of
which extended over a year, and which
President Sioan insisted on carrying.
Tr.int. ontinental J a ociation.
Chicaoo, Jan. 9. —A meeting of the
Transcontinental association, comprising
the lines west of the Missouri river to the
Pacific coast, vv&s held here to-day. The
meeting b6gan at 3 o'clock and lasted till
evening. Tho main object of the meeting
was to consider tho proposition to move
the terminus of the association from the
Missouri river to Chicago by admitting ah
the connections of the Union Paoifio un
der the recently ratified agreement.
ThiB will be to combine all
roads west of Chicago to the Pacific coast
against Burlington and its allies in Colo
rado and Utah, or to f orco the Burlington
to join the alliance and pool all its com
petitive business west of the Missonri
river, which it has thus far refused to do.
Little progress was made in the rea; ques
tion at issue. At the opening of the meet
ing, Clark, of the Union Pacific, presented
a resolution to the effect that the Rosk Is
land, Northwestern, Wabash, Alton, St.
Paul, Burlington and the St. Loais
& San Francisco roads be admitted
to the Transcontinental association
on equal terms with those already in. This
was laid over without action tiil to-morrow.
The remninder of she session was occupied
in consideration of the rules of the associa
tion. Ic is believed toe session will oover
several da-'S. The impression is, that un
less the Missouri river lines are admitted
to the transcontinental aesociatien. The
Union Paoifio will withdraw therefrom. It
is not believed they will be admitted, as it
is argcted it would make tho association
unwieldy in size and would involve
the Central and Northern Pacific in
a war with the Burlington and subject the
former to danger of having its lines paral
leled to the Pacific coast. The cut in rates
at Kansas City on the passenger business
to New York began this morning and re
sulted in a meeting of tho general passen
ger agents of the Missouri riyer lines here
to-day, for the purpose of considering the
question of the maximum of commissions
to common points. No conclusion was
reached, and tho meeting will be contin
ued to-morrow. Information is received
here to-day that the Waoash, Burlington
and Missouri Pacific roads met the cat at
Kansas City made by the Alton & Rook
6f. K. Harnes' Successor.
[Special Telegram to the Globe.
Chicago, Jan 9. —The officials of the
Northern Paoific held a meeting to-day at
the Grand Pacific hotel, at whioh a succes
sor of G. K. Barnes, who recently resigned
the position of general passenger agent of
the road, was decided upon. C. S. Fee,
assistant general passenger agent of the
road, will succeed Mr. Barnes, and H. C.
Davis, recent assistant general passenger
p.gent of the Manitoba road will succeed
Mr. F6e. The official announcement has
not yet been made, bnt it ia
understood that the matter has been pos
itively determined upon. Mr. Fee has an
enviable r60ord as a thoroughgoing pas
senger man, and his promotion is a fitting
mark of appreciation. Mr. Davis was the
first brakeman and fired on the first en
gine on the Northern Paoifio and delivered
tbe first stroke on the last spike. Since
his early connection with the Northern
Pacific he has been Chicago ticket agent
for the Fort Wayne road, superintendent
of the Pullman service of the St. Paul,
and assistant general passenger agent of
the Manitoba.

Six Indictments Againat OiVenders Found
Yesterday—Xha iiurderer of Kask the
Principal One.
The grand jury was actively at work
yesterday. The membsrs of it seem to
haye lost no tima at all, but proceeded at
once to business like industrious law abid
ing, energetic people, determined to do
their duty in expidetious and workmanlike
manner as all grand juries ought to. They
disposediof six cases, and as the testimony
was sufficient in all of them upon which to
find an indictment no trouble was found
in coming to a conclusion in each.
Thi case of Sor6nson charged with the
murder of John Kask, was one of the prin
cipal and most important that was brought
to tho attention of the jury yesterday.
The facts of the case are well known to
the readar3 of the Globe, having occurred
only about a week or two ago. It was tho
result of a drunken family brawl. The
people lived on Dayton's bluff,
and while the party waa pun
ishing a quantity of alcohol, Kask, the
murdered man, clled Sorensonvile name;-,
aud charged him with improper coaaduo:
with his, (Kask'?) wife, when the former
struck the latter, and beat him, injuring
him so that he died the next day. Boren
son immediately fled and was captured in
Stillwater. The evidence was such that
the jury had no trouble in finding a true
No trouble was met with in finding an
indictment against A. Cross for stealing
an overcoat from Merrill Ryder, on Jack
eon street.
An indictment was also found against
Connelly and Kruder, charged with rob
bing an old man named Neally, in the
Market house shed about two weeks ago.
Neally had a stand in the old shed where
he sold small articles. Daring
the day the two defendants went to him
and talked about buying him out, and
finally paid him a small sum of money to
bind the bargain. In the latter part of the
day and In the evening lhey met Neally
again and talked and drank with him, and
finally knocked him down, beat him and
robbed him of $117. The two defendant
ware fully identified. The wit
nesses before the grand jnry
were Mr. Neally, his wife, aud
daughter and the police officer.
The well known Nick Klinger, was also
investigated on a charge of robbing a
Swede several weeks ago out on the Fort
The same with Eureka, who stole an
overcoat from Rothschild, the clothing
man on Seventh street between Sibley and
Jackson streets.
C. Adams was also before the jury on a
charge of stealing an overcoat from
James Horan at the corner of Seventh and
Rosabel streets.
This finishes up a pretty full day's work
for the jury when it adjourned and wiii
resume its labors to-day.
Striatals Printers.
The compositors on the Vottazeitung
struck yesterday under the following cir
cumstances: Mr. Lienau left the night
before for the east, and yesterday morn
ing, while he was out of town, a committer
of three from the compositors waited upon
the gentleman who has charge of the basi
ness during Mr. Lienau's absence, and
made a demand upon him for an advance
of 2% cents psr thousand. The
price paid waa thirty five cents per
thousand, and they demanded 57%, the
decision to be rendered within an hour.
The gentleman replied to the committee
that he had no authority to either increase
or decrease the pay of the men, and of
e >arse he could not comply with their re
quest, but that he would telegraph imme
diately and as aoon as he got a reply,
which would be, probably, sometime during
the day, he would communicate the same to
tbe men. The committee refused this
and demanded an immediate refusal or
assent to the demand, and, as the gentle
man oould not do either the one or the
other the men all struck and went out of
the office. Tha men in the job room went
to work, and the paper was got out as
usual, though about an hour late.
Subsequently a dispatch was received
from Mr. Lienau, but ho did not authorize
tbe increase demanded. On the o;ntrary, he
will fill up with new printers.

Regular Monthly Meeting—Oonelderation
of the St. Anthony EUH Seweroge Syaumi
Recommendation to the Health Author
The regular monthly meeting of the
Homeopathic Medical society oi St. Paul
was held Wednesday evening at|(JteWindsc r
Owing to the solicitations of their
patrons, the members of the society dur
ing the pa3t month have been investigat
ing whether any connection existed be
tween the sewerage system of Si. Anthony
hill and the spread of diphtheria ana ty
phoid fever.
t&Dr. Dorion made special inquiries re
garding this point, and could find no in
stance in which the eewers had any i
influence upon the health of his families.
His cases of diphtheria existed where no
possible connection with the sewerage
system could be traced. He did not think
the prevailing types of oiseases were in
fluenced by sewer emanations.
Dr. Higbte—Much alarm is excited by
the markod odor arising from many of the
catch basins on the hill. The same may be
observed at the older catch basins
in other parts of tho city. Themajoti'y
of his cases of typhoid fever and diph
theria occurred in families where no con
nection existed between house and sewer.
Cold and exposure he considers to be a po
tent cause of diphtheria.
Dr. Hutchinson: Consider that the open
ing of sowers without sufficient water to
flush them to be very reprehensible, the
overflow from sinks and cisterns being in
sufficient. The most cases of diphtheria
occurred away from line of sewers. In
many instances he could trace no-possible
source of infection.
Dr. Craddcek: Sower gas per ae incao ,
bio of producing diphtheria or typhoid,
some other conditions are i-iqciir;>d besides
filth accumulations and decomposition.
Sewers r.fi'ord an exceiIf nt nidus for
poisons to propagate themselve3. Sawer
gas not to be feared for itself but for what
it may carry.
Resolved, That the members of thi3 soci
ety, after a full investigation, conclude
that the system of sewerage recently con
structed on St. Anthony hill has not as yet
materia'^ contributed to producing or
sustaining diphtheria or typhoid fever.
Case? occurring along the line of sewers
occasioned alarm. The majority of cases
imve developed in places away from any
possible contamination from the sewers.
Wo consider the use of those sewers f.>r
any Isngth of time without pr,
ing as directly prejudicial to
health, and it is incumbent upon the
thorities to see that the sewers are By •
atioaUy flushed.
