AN ADVANCE IN RATES. Lines Running Out of Chicago Put Up the Tariff on Passenger Business The Transoontl-ental Lines Have Agreed to Put Up Fares to Old Rates. Adams Express Company to Succeed the Amerloan on the nrltlagten Union Paclflc. A few days ago passenger rates were ad vanoed as follows: Chicago to Kansas City, from $10 to $12.50: Chicago to St. Josehb, $10 to $12450; Chicago to Leavenworth, $10 to, $12.50; Chicago to St. Louis. $6 to $7.55; St. Louis to Kansas City, $5 to $7.6); St. Louis to Leavenworth, $5.50 to $K; it. Louis to Atchison, $6 to $8.50; St. Louis to St. Joseph, $6 to $8.50. These advanced rates are the same as those in effect before the row which ended in the Alton becoming a non-member of the Western Passenger assoolation. The advance means an addi tional income of about $3,000,000 annually to interested lines. Eastern lines have been notified to use the advanced rates as basing rates, but will be unable to do so legally antil about Nov. 15. Until that date, there fore, scalpers will reap a harvest on through t:okets, as eastern rates via Chicago will be based on the old rates. Advices have also been received that managing officials of the trans-continental lines had patched up a truce on California rates and that all rates will be advanced to tariff. An iron clad agreement, it is said, has been signed by all lines to in no way deviate from agreed rates. The Western Passenger association at a recent meeting reaffirmed the agreement to put into effect the advanced rates between Chicago and Southwestern Missouri river points quoted above. Nothing was done with the proposition to adopt 5,000-mile interchangeable tickets. The committee having charge of the matter was unable to agree upon a reform and the committee was discharged. Further consideration of the subject was deferred until the next meeting of the association. It appears to be the general impression that no plan has been presented which will insure to each railroad its absolute division of the money received for the sale of the tickets. For this reason, if for no other, there does not seem to be much likelihood of the western roads agreeing to adopt the proposed form of ticket. BURLINGTON EXPRESS eERVICE. The Adams Company Will Occupy the Line After Jan. 1. President 0. E. Perkins. of the Burling ton, says that the report that the Adams Express company is to occupy the lines of the Burlington on and after Jan. 1 next is correet, says the Globe-Demoorat. Mr. Perkins states that the object of the change is to have the lines of the Burlington occu pied by an exoress comnane without rival or conflicting interests. This is accom Slished by substituting the Adams for the American and Wells-Fargo & Co.'s Express, both of which occupy the lines of competing railroads. Mr. Perkins thinks the change will be made without trenble or friction of any kind, and that most of those now in the employ of the American company and of Wells-Fargo & Co.'s Express will remain on the road in the service of the Adams com pany. "So far as the public is concerned." said Mr. Perkins. "it will make no difference whatever. The service will be no less effi cient than it has been heretofore, the Adams company being thoroughly organized and as oompetent to attend to the express traffic of the Burlington lines as any other organi zation could be." Mr. Perkins states that it had become a question with the company whether to run its own express or to arrange with some agency whose interests would be entirely devoted to the development of business on Burlinaton lines, and it has been found that the objects desired can be accomplished through the medium and with the co-oper ation of the Adams, which is one of the oldest express companies of the United After Jan. 1 next it will operate an express business over the entire 7,000 miles of road operated by the Burlington route. Hereto fore the American Express company has controlled the express business of tne Bur lingtou Ilnes east of the Missouri, while Wells. Fargo & Co. have controlled the bus iness west of the river. This arrangement will, after Jan. 1, shut the American Express company out of all Colorado and Wyoming business, and leave the company without any entrance into Burlington. As a matter of fact the American will, after the let of January, have but four or five oflices in the field which it now occupies almost exclusively. Offices will be maintained at Chicago, Men rots. O)ceola, Des Moines and Council Bluffs, and probably one or two more. 1[ IN 5PLENDIDi CONDITION. Comptroller Mlink and P'resident Clark larlt of the union l'aciile.

Dvntr, Nav. 7.-The evicted tenants' commission opened inquiry to-day. Jus tice Matthew, president of the commission. stated that he had a letter from the mar qnis of Clenrioarde. referring to the com mission as a plan of the campaign and declined to attend as witness for the pur pose of making suggestions for an attack upon his class. While one witness was testifying, Mr. Carson, counsel for the landlords, asked to be allowed at onee to ctoss-exalline. Justine Matthew refused, saying when the witnesses for both side. had been hoard counsel would be allowed to cross-examine them through a comnmis sioner. Carson thereupon declared the whole thing a farce and that he would noa prostitute his position by longer remaining before the commission. Justice Matthew said Carson's actions were disgraceful, Other counsel present as representatives of the landlo.sde concurred in the remarks of Carson and withdrew from the room, the landlords being thus unrepresented, Justice Matthew adjourned the commis ston.

LOST MONEY AND VOTES. Good tepubltean Cash leeored by .-l sharp Demoorate. ST. Lome, Mo., Nov. 7.-Disoovrj. we made to-day of a trick played by hbre demooratio ward workers that is diag.atial in the extreme to the republiosa man aeers. When the work of registration we going on it was an open secret that a rege Inr price of 50 cents a head was paid b; the republicans. They opened headquar toer near the registration office and did th, wot k in a strictly business way. Three democratic workers took advan tase of this. They rendeavoused at the levee foot of Walnut street, and corralas 100 ebony roustabouts, who hail from every where and reside nowhere. They drilled their company, matohed them up to the office, and registeoed them, pockesting $0 Down to the levee they took them again treated and declared a 10-cent per capiti dividend on the enterprise. The roust abouts swapped coats, hats, ate., and re ceiving new cards sallied back to the re corder's office and registered a second time in the same day. The Firat ward bosees pocketed another $50. The same thina was repeated five days Ir eacceession, and 1,000 fictitious names 2e: thus put upon the lists, for which the work. ers got $500 from the republican campaige fund. 'Ihat was not what chiefly exasper ated the republicans, however. These three tricksters proved their loyalty to the demo cratio party by furnishing the democratic revisers with a complete transcript of the 1,000 fictitious names and residences, and they were stricken of the lists.
