THERE'S A BIG HOW ON.
Transeontinental Railroad Assoola tion Is Shoping Signs of Go ing to Pieces. A Fight Also in Progress Between the Northern and Union Pacifios. The Canadian Paetlfo Serves Notice of Its Withdstawai From the CombtiatiUo of Roads. The Transcontinental association has virtually received its death blow, and so eording to present indications a serious fight on Panific coast freight and passenger rates will be inaugurated next January. After futile efforts had been made at the Chicago meeting of the general passenger agents of the Transcontinental lines to bring about an adjustment of the existing troubles, the Canadian Pacific gave formal notice of withdrawal from both the freight and passenger departments of the Trans continental association, to become effective Jan. 1, 1893. The reasons assigned by the Canadian Pacific for withdrawal from the association are the action of the Southern Pacifio in holding the Canadian Pacific in the anomalous position of charging Ameri can domestio shippers higher rates from the Atlantic seaboard than the Southern Pacific eharges importers from European ports through to the Pacific coast, the fact that other lines in the aRsociation have utterly demoralized the rates, both on freight and passenger business, and their open admission that such is the case, and the association's Inability to remedy mat loere. The Canadian Pacific representative made strong efforts to secure concessions from Chairman Vining and the Southern Pacific people, but the latter were deaf to all en treaties, and persisted in refusing all de mands. Finding that it woe impossible to bring about a change in the existing condi tion of affairs, the Canadian Pacific served its notice of withdrawal. Hope is still entertained by some of the roads that a settlement of the passenger troubles can be secured, and another meet ing of the passenger otlicials will be held. The prospect of an adjustment of the trou bles, however, is meager, inasmuch as the honthern Pacific positively refuses to aban don the payment of commissions on emi grant traffic by way of New Orleans. 'I he Santa Fe seems to be determined to with draw from the association if the payment of excessive commissions is not stoppe.l, and proposes to put into effect a rate of $14.20 on emigrant business from the Mis couri river to the Pacitic coast. Three roads have now given notice of withdrawal, namely, the Rio Grande & Western, Great Northern and Canadian Pacific. It is almost certain that the Santa Fe will be the next to follow. But besides there is a row in progress between the Union and Northern F'aioia railroads which is certain to sgg-avate the situation and prevent an amicable settlem"-nt of Pacciie coast pates:nger affairs, A short time ago the Northern Pacific secured a ruling in tire courts that it is justlfied in refusing to honor through tickets issued by the Union Pacific to local r oints on its line. A day or two ago the Union Paci'lo issued orders to agents and connections to withdraw all through tickets to Pug t Sound points from Portland to destination and substi tote for same regular exchange order tickets to be drawn on W. H. Hallburt, assistant general passenger agent at Port land. This means that the Union Pacific will furnish passencers to Puget Sound points with local tickets from Portland to destination, for which, of course, it has to pay full local rates to destination. The Northern Pacific is now out with an other circular requesting connecting roads not to comply with the request of the Union Pacific system, as it has been deter mined by the courts that business need not be accepted from connections at any points except by agreement, and the circular o. the Union Pacific is simply an evasion of the law. This puts connecting lines in an awkward position, as they do not like to ansaronize the Union Pacific or Northern Pacific. After four days of profitless wrangling over the Pacific coast rate situation, the passenger meeting of the Trauscontinental association adjourned, subject to the call of the chairman. Thie only result of thir mneeting that has thus far developed is the withdrawal "f the Canadian Pacific from the organization. Every effort to reach ani amicable adju-tinent of existing differences fell flat. For a while, when the meeting was considering the report of a committee appointed to sub mit resolutions on the rate question, it looked as if an agreement might be effected. Much of the report received the unanimous approval of those present, but when it pro posed a plan for regulating immigrant traffic the Southern Pacilc promptly kicked the whole thing over. 'That company re fused with as much emphasis as ever to sign an agreement providinir for uniform commissions or the establishment of ' a joint agency in New York for tire distribu tion of immigrant trafflic we.t if the Mis souri river. It has its own eIerts lia Eu ope aind declines to rve up Irs advrntlagre. ]lesides, since the Cianrid:iin 1'acific has given notlco of withlrawal frim thb aner ciation, the Southern I'acllio takes tihe pround that it would rnot be lpolicy for it to enter into any agreemenrt for tha rutlin.l ance of rate. i5 prefers to be free to fi.ht the relvinilg iro. iBefore the mltetlu n fin ally adjourned it was evident to all that no form of agreemeirt that could be proposed would be accented by the ,iouthern P'aeitio.
