no objection to this transfer of stpek,
I but he dlil object to the plan offered
by the t'nlon Pacific company for the
sale of the balance of $126,000,000
Southern Pacific stock which it holds.
Mr McKeynoMs asked either that a
receiver be named to handle the sale of
tin- stock or that the tourt name a
commission to dispose of the Southern
Pacific, stock held by the I'nlon Pa

tended that nny plan wlilih would com

have no common olticers, no common dl
reclois, no common sollcltots The
Southern Pacific sloi k held hv the
I'nlon Pacific Is disfranchised and the

The I'nlon Pacific, Mr. Loomis .said,
made ever endeavor to purchase th"
Central Pacific fiom the Southern Pa
cific, but obstacles arose !,0 that the deal
could not be consummated In time. Tlie
present plans therefote plollde only for
the sale of fhe Southern Pacific stock
Two plans, lie explained, are submitted.
One provides for a public offering of the
.Southern I'acltlc stock at .1 minimum
price, tlie Piiion Pactflc stockholders be
ing plolilblted from buying or bidding.
Judge Smith at this point suggested It
was not well to leave the minimum price
to the company, which might fix a pro
hibitive price, Mr. l.oomls said this
might he done, but It would not be to
the company's Interest to do so. The
company was willing to have the court
fix a reasonable time In which lo sell
the stock, Just now, he declared, Is a
bad time to throw a big block of stock
on the market.
Judge Hook suggested that I'nlon Pa.
clflc stockholders might huv the stock
in the name of emplovees. Mr l.oomls
thought the affidavits tequliei would
prevent this,
A rr fur (he Sale,
Mr. F.oomjs then remarked that a year
would be a reasonable lime In which to
sell the stock, If It were all thrown on I
the matket at once It would cause a big t
slump In all railroad stocks. He further
explained negotiations had been tried
with other Knatern roads for an ex
change of stock, hut wlthout'success.
Tht; second plan, If the stock cannot
be sold under the first plan, explained
Mr. l.oomls, provides for the distribu
tion of rertlflcntes of Interest In .South
ern Pacific stock to Union Pacific share
holders. These will confer no voting
power until sold to non-l'nlon Pacific
Hhareholdors and converted Into South
ern Pacific stock,
JurtKo Hook remarked that the I'nlon
Pacific stockholders nlready hold $90,
000,000 Southern Pacific stock In addi
tion to the $126,000,000 held directly by
the company, and that unless some of
the Htock held by the company was
transferred to the hands of non-Union
Pacltlo stockholders tho I'nlon Pacific
stockholders would have a majority of
the voting stock In tho Southern Pacific
as Ions us the stock held directly by the
company Is disfranchised,
