lb Western Tramo Asseolation A Great Danger of Going to Pieces. Jay Gould Credited Wlith a Dter uination Not to Attend the Meeting. amaadlan Pacefl to Build lite the Keot met linlag )District-The Stlr-tp is the Unlon Paciflo. Several complioations of a serious natur are likely to arise should a quorum not b: secured at the next meeting of the advisorj board of the Western Traffic assoolation, There seems to be a confirmed opinion on all11ides amounting almost to an absolut certainty that Jay Gould and his following will not attend the meeting called for April 12 in Chicago. He has never attended one there and it is understood that he does not intend to put in an appearance at the next one, either. Now it turns out that the set tlement of questions pertaining te the re engagement of some members of the board of commissioners whose term of office have alreaey expired was post poned at the last meeting till the meeting to be held April 12 and the services of these commissioners were re tained provisionally till that date. Should the meeting not take place that provisional arrangement will lapse and there will be a question as to the standing and authority of such commissioners. They are the ex ecutive offcers of the association, and with out them or somebody to take their places the executive work will be at a standstill and nobody will know just where he stands. There are some who hold that a failure of the advisory board to meet and take action April 12 will amount to a virtual abandon ment of the association. Then there will be chaos. FEAR ANOTHER RATE WAR. serleos Times Ahead in the Western Pa- senger Association. A general want of confidence in the situa tion seems to pervade Western Passenger association circles at present and unless something is done soon to relieve the ten sion disastrous consequences may follow. All the principal markets in the territory are said to be thoroughly demoralized and the brokers are represented as doing all the business. This cannot continue very long without causing a dissolution of the asso ieation and the outbrealk of another rate war. At the same time conservative mem bers say that the ills complained of are more imaginary than real. Business is sat isfactory and earnings show gratifying gains over those of the corresponding period a year ago, while the prospects for the future were never brighter. If proper prudence is only shown end a conservative, concilliatory spirit manitested there is no real danger. The present demoralization may be easily removed and things go on with less friction than ever. To commence a rate war in face of present prospects would be sheer madness. INTO THE KOOTENAI. A Canadian Pacific Branch to Be Built c Into a RMiing Region. The Canadian Pacific will shortly build a branch into the Kootenai minine district. Superintendent Abbott, in an interview at Victoria a few days ago, said: "Engineer L Stewart, with a party of surveyors, has re cently left Revelstoke on an exploring ex pedition to the head of Arrow lake. The J road contemplates building a branch 4 south from Revelstoke, and it is alto gether likely that the work will A be done this year. The line would be but twenty-eight miles in length, S and would be the means of keeping up connection with Kootenai ten months in the year, if not the entire twelve. By building to the head of the lake this tire some passage between it and Revelstoke wouldbe done away with. It is that pas- I sage which in a large measure bars the rapid development of Kootenay. In the meantime, as soon as navigation opens. boats wi,l run between Revelstoke and Nelson. As cood trade is anticipated, two 1 boats will go on the route, the Lytton and the Kootenay." LEEDS TO BE CARED FOR. He Will Succeed Mellen as Traffic sana ger of the Union Pacific. A dispatch from Omaha says that J.. I Leeds, who was fired by Gould for cutting sugar rates, and who is now at the head of the Merchants' freight bureau of Califor nia, is to be made traffic manager of the Union Pacific. A gentleman who has been connected officially with the traffio depart ment for many years, says "the new traffic manager of the Union Pacific will be J. 8. Leeds, if Jay Gould continues in control of the road. Leeds was traffic manager of the Missouri Pacific, but lost his official head last summer because he made a cut-rate on sugar from New Yo. k to Denver. Ite was a favorite of Gould and, of course, was asso ciated with Mr. Clark. While they could not retain him in the service of the Missouri Pacifie without breaking up the traflic as seciation, the rules do not prevent his em ployment by any other road. Gould prob ably feels there is something due a man who has suffe, ed in his service and proposes to use the opening on the Union Pacific to settle the score. Incidentally he may want satisfaetion out of the lines that insisted on Leeds' dismissal, and he may find it in putting Mr. Leeds where he will be a thorn s their side. General Manager Clark of the Union Pacific has said that he will not appoint a traffic manager to succeed C. it. Mellen until after he has consulted others higher in authority. It is inferred that the appointment will not be made until after the annual election, when it will be deter mined whether the Gould management will be continued or not. The Northwestern's Threat. Should the efforts of the weak Chicago St. Paul lines to induce the Northwestern to withdraw from its intention to cut the time between these points thirty minutes not succeed and a time war result, the Northwestern is in such a position that it will not under any circumstances have to take the dust of any of its competitors. It is the short line between the two oeints shorter even than it is given credit for be ing. Last summer the Omaha road straightened out a number of bad curves in its line by which many miles were saved, and for this the road has never been given credit. The physical condition of the road is unsurpassed in the west, and the equip meat, both in quality and quantity, is such that the road can bid defiance to its com petitors. At the same time, they have not yet abandoned all home of inducing it to reconsider the position sit intends to take and to rescind the notice given that April 10 the running time between Chicago and St. Paul will be cut thirty minutes in each direction. New Unien Pacific Local Tickets. A new form of local tickets went into ef fect on the Union Pacific April 1. T'he ticket is known as the Lomax local ticket and is gotten up in manner differing from the old style of local tickets. It is about four by six inches in size with the agent's stub attached and has on it the names of the different stations on the road and the station number opposite. When the ticket is used the number opposite the destination is punched out. It can be used as a special, al;tare, g.overnment, clergy or second te aw ae between a* C t maye be adopted byt ot atn, . Immtgati ak Melt. Rates on imm -tmrt bsolness frotC iat dian seaports to the northwet have at test been settled.

The result of this will be to pat into ffecte to morrow the through-rate ag ree meat between the Chiago-St. Paul roads and the Canadian lines. PERSONAL.
