MORGAN Details of the Agreement Withheld Until the Financier's Return From Europe-Morgan-Hill and Harriman Factions Have Reached an Amica ble Understanding Regarding the Burlington Deal. New York, June 4.--The Press says that one tremendous consollatlion of all the raitroaud ope,..Aig between the Mississippi river and the Pacific coast promises to result from a set tiemeint ut the differences which caused the Northern Pacific corner. The Press saes that it is "able to an nounce on the highest autlcarity that not only have the differences been set tied between the Morgan-Hill faction and the Harriman party regarding the Burlington deal and the relations of that road and the Nottheuai I-'Paific with the Union Pacific, but also that the St. Paul, the Chicago and North wcctlrn and the Chicago G:eat West ern will be taien care of ii, the great harmonizing scheme of the trunk lines of the West. "Exact details of the harmony agreement are withheld until J. Pier p,:nt Morgan arrives from Europe. J. J. Hill, who has been his represen tative in the Northern Pacific con flict and in the practical ntnage ment of the Morgan-Hill railroads. ha:n remained 'incommunicado.' giv iug to his friends the assurance that they must 'wait and see. Facts will tell the tale in good time.' "In Mr. Hill's simple expression is the whole truth in a nut shell. The aereement over the controversy of control of the Northern Pacific means. first, that the road cwill he under the di:ection of the Morgan Fill faction. although th,' Kuehn-o-L' -Harrimnn Gould faction. backed be, the Reocke feiler and Stillman intereets. owns the maioritv of the common and pre ferred stock coembined, and. further. th-'t the harmony nareement will re suit in n closer nllir-nc between the great transmiscissipol railroads which extend from Chicago to tl,e coast and bnve affilint'nns to carrv American pr:',nce to the far East." LICENSE OF MUTUAL RESERVE. Minnesota Insurance Commissionei Has Taken No Action. St. Paul, June 4.--Ttgraphic dis patches from New York announce( that Insurance Commissioners Giljo haun of Wisconsin and Dearth of Min nesota had revoked the license of the Mutual Reserve Fund Life associa tion for their respective states. The announcement caused considerable local agitation from the fact that the association in question is the largesi assessment company in the world and has a large membership in Minne sota. As far as the statement relatee to the action of Commissioner Giljo hann of Wisconsin it has been ver. ified by information from Madison but in relation to similar action on the part of Mr. Dearth, there are indica. tions that it was premature and that, in fact, no decisive step has yet been taken. The Mutual Reserve Fund Life as sociation has a total membership of 81.076. There are in Minnesota 871 members, from whom $50,616 was col lected in premiums last year. The total liabilities as shown by the com pany's report are $1.825 128, and the total cash assets, $3.000,000. RESTING COMFORTABLY. No Change in the Condition of Mrs. McKinley.
