Wheeler, attorney for the We iern Pacific Rallway company, indicated before the state railroad comlnlniton today that he would base his 'C posi tion to the Union IPacific-SirtherM Pacific dissolution scheme iprinceirally upon, the contention that its adoption would permit a violation of the Sher lan anti-trust law and wouldl defeat the decree of thle supllrreme court of the United States that' Union Pacific slo'khol'ders calnnot plrch:as the stock of the Southern L'acitic com ipany. WCheoler iointed out thai snome 3100 stockholders ill the IUnion Pacific con trol 63 ppr cent of the collpany's stock, while the remaining T7 is owned by nearly 22,000 individuals. A syndi cate of New York hankers, headed by Kuhn, Lo..h & companvy, has under written the Southern Pacific stock not taken uip by the "outside" stock holtders in the two comlpanies. 'T'hese llnumber 40,0010 persons. "I'ndPer the proposed arrangement," s:Oitd Mr. Wh\eler, "the Union Pa:lific stockholders will be entitled, as a mllatter of right, to about 29 per (cenlt iof the total Southern '1Pacific stlock. Starting with this, it will be only necessary for a relativelo small per colntage to fall to them tllroullgh tihe underwriting syndicate in olrder to lnave domination of the S.uthelrn Pa rifle with them. "Mr. ltarriman acquired this dllom ination with 37 per cent. The supreme 'oulrt formally adjudged tlhat 46 per cent is sufficient tol control any great corporatiln and it is safe' ti~ say thi Plraoposed arrangement' will yiehll at Ieast a dominating percentage into the hands of the Union 'Pacific st.kholl.ol ers. This is what the sulllpreme court has declare'd mlbust not be dIne." William Sproule, president of the Southern Pacific, was on the stand during the afternoon. The order, dither approving or dis approving the plan subhritted by the two comllpanies for dissolution, will he made 1by the railroad llcommi ssion Mllndlay night. The attorneys agreed that while the decision of the com mlission could not he binding as effect ing any 'other portion of the roads than those in California, it woull hbe sublmitted to the United States dis trict colrt at St. ,Louis., whire another phIase of the tplan is yet to tbe heard. A telegram wasIl lI sent toi Attorney G(eneral Wickershim at St. Louis ask ing a continuance until Tuesday. The WRstern Pacific will present its case Ilhere MIolltllay on tile protest made.

TLovitt, chairman If the hoard of the I'nion Pacilfic railrad, who passed lhirloughl (naha this even ing, on routlle from Saill Francisco to St. Louis. Jullge Lovett declared his belief that the o\wnters of the 1Western Pacific w'ere "tr'ying tol unlol'ad" the property on the IUnion Pacific and were at templlting to ttake iadvantatge of Cali flrnill conditions to force his road to ake iov \'er the proplerty. Judge Lovett expressed satisfaction with the general plan apDroved by A.tornlley General Wi'h'kersham for di vircing the' 1Unilon Pacific and South ern Pacific and helieved the circuit coullrt would llakel a decree approving it.

WAR TO THE KNIFE IN RIVAL CAMPS SOMEBODY THROWS MUD AND ANTI-SUFFRAGETTES ARE SORELY AROUSED. \Vashington, 1Feb. 22.-Anti-suf fragette hlltdqularters here today was buzzing with iii.li;tiion over whtat the women opposed to suffrage intimate was the adoption of militant tactics by the suffragettes. They pointedt to the existence If quantities of mud which had ieen flung on the windows of their headquarters and which formed large and unsightly lumps on the front walls. The suffragettes as indignantly tde ni(ed that they had any hanl in the affair.

"This is a Woman'ls work," said Miss Alice Paul, chairman of the procession committee of the suffragettes, "and we will not attack any w\oman even with words. If the women opposed to suffrage choose to attack us, that is their business."

The antis may retullrn the call. BRIEF DECISIONS.
