eiatlou to run special eteurslons to Colo

was negatived.
This dlil not please him a llttlo bit, eo.
faking the bull by tho nurn he served
notice on Chairman Ebe.n K. MacLeod that
ids company would take Irdercndcnt ac
tion and put In reduced rates fer these
rprcl.il excursions extending over :i limited
period of time. His co-npany will sell tick
ets from all Missouri Hlver sideways on
July T. S, 9 and IS, und on August "
On these tickets stop-over privileges will
bo allowed west ef Colorado common points
within a Iln.it of thirty davs on gedng trip.
On tho return trip the passage will be con
tinuous. The return limit will extend until
October 21.
Mr. S'bastlm'9 move will bo discuel,
doubtlessly, at the meeting of the Kxeeu
tlve Committer of the Western Tassenger
Association to-morrow and again nt the
eeneral mteting to be held on May S. If he
eloe-s not recede from his present position
other lines are certain to take independent
action and put In rates for a series of these
excarslons. which may be a trlfli lower th in
thoiv of the Hock Island. ThN must In
evitably lead to a elemoralizatlon of pas
senger rates, which will extend lwycne! the
pe riod limited In Mr. Sebastian's scliedu!-.
One of thp main objects of the meeting on
May ! Is to discuss summer tourist rates
and as thee special excursions if too fre
epient, tend to di-rupt general agreement-"
and make Impossible the maintenance of
rates, the members will have a knotty
problem before them. It Is well known tha't
utile lines are only too anxious for a pre
text to kick over tho tracts an I Mr. ? -basthin's
Independent move mav ho the
cause of bringing about a set of ile-e ai.d
easy tariffs for the summer.
