Special DUtHilch to 'Pit Chluigo TriLnnt.
Kansas Citv, Mo., Got. 10.—'There is trouble
Again about passenger rates Amongst tbo rends
centering bore. It appears that tbo tickot
agents have an Agreement to soli only rebate
lickots.lo Chicago. The only exception to this
is that the roads aro permitted to poll straight
tickets, without any rebate, on Mayor’s orders
Issued to passengers klm have hot money
ehourli to pay tho full fate to Chlohgo and wait
until they got fboro to get their rebate re
funded to thorn. This makes tbe ticl rate to
such persons only 97, Which Is ail that tUoy uro
required to pay before obtulnlngn ticket to Chi
cago. Tbo other passengers have to pay 9H.W,
and are refunded $7.80 when they arrive lu Chi
cago. -It IB alalmed that tbh ARoh had
told two tickets to Chicago ut $7 without
tbo Mayor's brdors. Tho Alton denied this,
And produced the orders of the Mayor
lh evidence, and the Mayor testified that tho or
ders were genuine and wero Issued by him. It
appears that, fur scimo reason, the other agents
are a little mail about tho Alton getting away
with thorn, mid. notwithstanding tho tacts In tho
case, they found tho Alton guilty, mid lined the
Alton agent twice the value of tho tickets at full
regular tariff rate, tuo line amounting to s‘*U.iU
The Alton agent Anally concluded to pay this
rather tlmh nmkouny trouble, and to appeal the
cuso to a higher court; but In tho moantlnio ho
went to work to see If ho could And any crook
ednesS on tho part of bis opponents. Ho speed
ily found mid presented u easu against tho Rock
Island for selling a tickot from Kansas City to
Milwaukee and extending the limit of It so
that It could bo scalped at Davenport. Tbo
lino for this uttunse, under tbo agreement, is
double tbo value or the tickot. Tho court of
ticket agents round tho facts to bo as stated by
tbo Alton agent, but decided to lino tbo Rock
Island Road tho value of that portion of tho
ticket only which road from Davenport to Mil
waukee. This was manifestly nut n decision In
accordance with tho agreement, because if tho
agreement means this, then It would also mean
that. If tbo tickot had been traveled on to desti
nation, there would imvo been no lino whatever,
which is certainly what none of tho agents pro
tended to say was what tnov intended in making
their agreement. U was thought, however, that
these decisions ended' the trouble, and that
things would go on ns usual. Rut the Alton
man, feeling that tho court, tn anger and with
out regard to tbo facts, bud rendered an unjust
Judgment against him, appealed his cuso to
headquarters, and is today In receipt of tbo fol
lowing tclegrniti from Chicago:
Chicago, Oct. 10.—I understand tbo enso
Against us to bo for selling two tickets tn Chica
go at tbo agreed rate on Mayor's orders, ns per
poreoraeht. The other sldo Claim that wo had
out tbo orders, or that they were nut gonulno.
On this wo are found guilty, notwithstanding
that tho Mayor testifies to tbn genuineness of
his o. lets. I unncrstanl onr case against tbo
Rook Island to bo that tho agent of that com
pany sold n tickot to Milwaukee and extended
tho agreed limit, so ns to admit of tho tickot be
ing scalped at Davenport. This Is proved and
admitted by tbe other side, and is consequently
h clear case under tho agreement, and wo can
not submit to tho glaringly partisan nud ab
surd decision against us In such cases. Wo can
notalford to bo In unugreeraont tho parlies to
which loso their temper and their bonds,
and mnko up their minds flagrantly, openly,
and arbitrarily, In violation of tno 'plain words
bf lbo ogrocmcnt. to And us guilty when we aro
clearly Innocent, and to find another lino inno
cent whan it is plainly and Indisputably gulliy.
Insist upon reconsideration of tbcao cases. Mr.
Bt. John will never sustain bis man In doßbor
tteivscaJpinghls own good local business to tho
detriment of bis company and diminution of bis
recolots. If not favorably reconsidered, demand
an appeal to Dio General Ticket and Passenger
Agents from these outrageously unjust docls
lions. If Justice Is domed us, It is useless to
consider toe agreement as being in clTect. and
wetmisttauo tho matter under consideration
and decide on measures to protect ourselves.

A RAILWAY THROUGH A DESERT.
The London Times has tbo following regard
ing Russian railroad enterprises in Central
Asia:
‘•By the completion ot the line of railway
from Krosnvodsk to Xlzll Arvat tho Bus*
Sian Government havo Mulshed tho Mint sec
tion of tbo Transcaspian Rallwuj’, which Is In
tended to bring the territory recently conquered
from tbo Turcomans Into direct communication
with both the Caucasus and tbo interior or
Russia. Tbo port of Klzil Arvat has long boon
oueofsomu Importance, and during tho event
ful period of tho last ton yours it has played a
considerable part in Russian operations In this
quarter, and now, as tho actual terminal point
of the railway, it Is not likely to sink Into lusig
niUcnnco. From Kroanuvodsk. which, after the
suggestion of several alternative places, seems
destined to remain tbo principal Russian harbor
on the eastern side of tho Casplon, to Klzil
Arvat, tbo distance Is about -*IXI miles. Tho
country through which tho lino pusses Is mostly
deSert, lying between tbo two Balkan ranges,
and completely waterless, savont tho fow spots
where wells are to bo found. Of these tho prin
cipal are those at Molln Karl, Tugcor, and Kuy
andtik. Although tho scarcity of water has
hitherto constituted an obstacle in Iho path of
nn army or of a caravan, ills probable that tho
Russian engineers nro right In saying that a
•ulllctent supply can always bo procured on
route tor the engines, white the naphtha springs
or tho Caspian provide a cheap and cosily ob
tainable fuel/*
“It is not expected that tbo Russians will re
main long content with Klzil Arvat as tho ter
minus of thoir now lino, especially ns o brisk
trade is likely to spring up with tho Turcomans,
sad also with the towns on (he northern borders
of Persia. East of Klzil Arvat thodllUoultlos
pi engineering arc very much less thou thouy
thatprcsflntodthomsolvQS west of that place,
although oven these wore not very formidable,
and havo now boon successfully overcome. As
Russia bus formally annexed tbo region up to
Ashkabad, which is about tbo sumo distance
from Klzil Arvat that that place Is from Kras
povodsk, tboro will probably bo no further de
lay than financial considerations may imposo In
carrying the lino to tbo capital of now trans
cutpiso province. The energy shown In improv
ing tbolr moons of communication with this now
P.aasesslon Is In striking contrast with tho in
dilToronoo or sluggishness exhibited by tho
auiborltles in other parts of Asia.
’Jhllo Tasbkund remains more remote from
Moscow than our possessions ut tbo antipodes
are from London, uud while tho resources
ot Siberia oro undeveloped fur want of
railroads and canals, tho same six months have
witnessed tho subjection of u bravo racu and tho
connection of Utolr subdued territory with tho
main linos of communication In the Umpire. To
pretend that this exceptional energy has not a
Peculiar slgntiloanco would butodlsrogardfncts,
nor, although wa may rupoat that there is
nothing unreasonable in Russia desiring to bring
her latest Central Aslan acquisition Into dlreut
communication with Tillin' or Derbend. cun tbo
plain fact be ignored that tho first section In a
nneof railway which must one day connect
with Meshed, and possibly with Herat
jM*®, no? boon succusslully laid down and opened

ST. LOUIS VIIKTCIIIT IILOOKAT)!'
Tho Bt. Louis Globe-Democrat has tho follow
ing regarding tbo serious freight blockade at
Enstßt. Louis:
"Tho most,serious question now confronting
tbo business interests ut this city is tbo freight
blockadu across, tho river. Hundreds of cars
arc quietly standing upon tho trucks mvniting
transfer, and tho merchants are clamorous to
ohlnlh their goads, while freight und transfer
olllces arc daily besieged for special favors. It
Is to tho detriment of tbo general trade that
such a statu nf affairs becomes possible, and
peculiarly so hi tho busiest season of tbo year.
Tbo freight linos claim promptness In delivery,
and aro inclined to mneq biitme upon tho Trans
tor Company, while tho latter has a number nf
excuses. Tno Transfer Company allege Uml
limy have had iWO horses, actually uml threat
ened, with tho plnk-cyo, and they wero pre
vented from exul ting themselves to meet tho
annual rush of goods; that tbo past two weeks
they only obtained a limited numbor of work
ing days on account of tho Incessant rains and
tbo closing of business over tho President's
death and tor tbo fair. It Is staled on good au
thority that cars arc now standing on tho
tracks at East Bt. Louis, (100 of which oolong to
tho VandalJa Lino. Hevcrnl merchants, during
the earlier portion of tbo week, obtained per
mission to send their own wagons over nnd
select a few boxes ol goods In Dm most needed
linos, but tho railroad companies soon dis
covered that such proceedings must be stopped,
or trouble would follow, and now each merchant
must await his turn. Twenty-live cars wero
pushed across yesterday and landed ut Dm
union Depot, nnd n great pressure was made
upon tho Transfer Company tn obtain Immedi
ate admission to those ears. It is n sinaular
fact that all tbo Jobbing dry-goods houses in tho
city nro entirely void of black prints, and there
is a groat rivalry to secure tho first lot. Tho
run was caused by tho extensive draping in
memory of Uarlield. A few orders for this lino
of goods wero duplicated yesterday to bo for
warded by express, ohd tbo brief struggle will
be Interesting."

RESISTING PAYMENT.
Special Dirpaleh to The Chicago TYiSuns.
Cr.iNTOk, 111., Oot. 10.—About four years ago
tho Supromo Court of Illinois issued a manda
mus on Nathan M. Barnett, of Barnett Town
ship, DoWltt County, ordering him to sign
$40,000 in bonds issued and voted to tho Illinois
Midland Railway, bo then being Supervisor of
that township. Mr. Harnett disobeyed tho order
of that honorable body, and, ns a consequence,
tho Court sent him to Jail for six months for
contempt, which sentence bo served, coming
out one ahead of tbo court, and now tho Bit
promo Court has ordered another mandamus to
bo Issued on Lyman Baruott, brother of Nathan,
ordering him to sign them os Supervisor of
Barnett Township. Tbo fun of tho caso Is that
during the last four years. In order to maintain
tho township organization, tbo people have
elected a Supervisor ouch year, hut tbolr candi
date after election would not qualify, and
Just how tbo Supremo Court cuu. mukn
u man hold olJloo whether bo wants to or pot
remains to ho soeu. It Is at least a very
dellcuto question for a court to decide. Thu
people am bound not to pay tho amount of tho
bonds, as Iho road has not yet complied with tho
ngroomunt or contract—viz.; The road was to
have boon laid through tbo contru of the town
ship. but instead of that tbo company built tbo
roadway oil to one side, bonoo tho bitter fooling
towards paying otf tho debt. It is a similar ease
to that of Harp Township, which has caused so
much trouble to this county In tho way of riots,
etu. Tho voters of Barnett Township nro not
to bo blamed very much for this resistance of
tho dobt, as It Is no doubt n fraud, though wu
presume that tbo dual outcome will bo tbo pay
ment of tho debt.
PACIFIC COAST GOSSIP.
SAN FtuNCIHCO, Cal., Oct. 10.—The Bulletin
publishes editorially a report that tho South Pa
oltlo Coast Uallroan has been purchased by tbo
Central Pacific. It says; "Wo do not vouch for
Iho correctness of the rumor, but It coiao» from
two or three sources, ono nf which Is rarely at
fault. It Is a fact that too Central Pacillo bos
recently purchased iho tiauta Cruz St Watson
vlllo ami Montoroy & Bullnas narrow
gugo roads. Tbo former baa boon
already converted to broad gaga and tbo latter
soon will bo. It Is understood that those pur
chases aro for tbo purpose of heading on Jay
Uould In his otforts to obtain a terminus ot Bun
Francisco."
Graders on tho California A Nevada Railroad
havo advanced on tho Oakland end several
miles below that city. Another rumor which
appears tu have a basis of fact is that tbo Ore
gon St California Road and Huornuionto Valley
Railroad, tho former under tho euulrnl of Vll

PaoiMo, will form a Junction somowhero nonr

A number ot changes and appointments In tho

of tho now propeller Michigan to tho line. Cnpt.
It. Prlndlvllio, a well-known Chicago skipper,
has been appointed master of tbo now propeller
Michigan. Joe Russell has been appointed First
Mato. Al Sohutto, formerly on the Htemn-lmrgo

THE HAlimm AT EltlE.
The Government work on tbo harbor has been
nearly completed, and hut u fortnight mure will
bo needed to finish the small piece of tbo south
pier of tbo channel extension, all that in nnw
incomplete. Luku men nave boon troubled for
years by u bugo bar that was always to bu round
ut tbo entruueo tn tbo channel, and an attempt
has been made to remove this permanently.
Thu current In tbo channel Is tromondmuiv
swift, bnl the south pier being several hundred
foot shorter than tbo north pier, tho current
broke at tho end of the south pier, and lost its
force to such an extent that It could not keep
tbo channel open, hence the formation ol ibo
bar. Thu piers have been made of equal length
and tbo bar has been removed by dredging, and
It is thought that tho currupt will In tbo future
prevent Its formation.

member would run up intu tens of thousands of
dollars.
