GOULD LINES SHUT OUT OF IDAHO BY 0G DENGATE Can Do No North Pacific Busi ness Till Building of Western Completed. THEN THERE WILL BE A MERRY SCRAMBLE Ogden, Utah, Oct. 20. Though the Ogden Gate has for a long time stood ajar the inevitable has happened and it will now be closed, and the Rio urande and Gould lines will be shut out of Id alio and Montana absolutely by the Oregon Shore Line. When the announcement was recently made that the Denver & Hlo Grande would not be represented in the new Idaho and .Montana tariff sheets that are issued by the Harriman lines it plainly meant the closing of the Ogden gateway con sequently the Union Pacific will -get the long haul from Denver to tae northwest. All connecting lines at enver and Itio Grunde because no person 'will pay the local rate on freight, west and north of Ogden, the terminus of the Rio Grande. The agencies of the doomed line at Butte and Portland, Ore., are closed. The closing of the Ogden gateway means that the Rio Grande will be shut out of Cache valley, Urlghtaui City, t-u-cote.io and all other points north and vest of Ogden. Naturally merchants will not ship their goods from the east over the Rio Grande and then pay the local rate on from Ogden in addition. Ia consequence all the busi ness will go to the Harriman lines until the Western Pacific and Goulds projected line to Idaho and Portland are built. Then there will be another merry scramble.
