MAJOR M'NEILL'S DAY DREAM.
A New Railroad to the Pacific Coast. Utah Northern to Be Extended from Frisco, Utah. An Independent Srateni t» Ri Formed of Union Fiiolllo Kronen I.lnee itud Oregon Itntlway avnd Navigation, By the Associated Press. Chicauo, Dec. Hi,—The Herald lays : A eenaatiorjul railroad rjjmbine ia con cealed behind the attempt of tbe branch Hues of the Union Pacific to eecare sep arate receiverships. Should the attempt bs successful and separate receivers be appointed forthe Oregon Short Line and Utah Northern, an independent system will be established. The' plan is to combine the Oregon Short Dine and Utsh Northern with tbe Oregon Kail way and Navigation cnrnpauy. an inde pendent system, and secure a California outlet by extending the branch now ending at Frisco, Wash. This would require the building of about 400 miles of new track, if tbe branch extended to Ban Francisco. THE ITOBT niSCBKDITED. Omaha, Dec. 14—The sensational story published in Chicago this morning relative to a combination being con cealed behind the attempt of the branch lines of the Union Pacific to secure separate receiverships, according to information secured at Union Pa cific headquarters today, turn • out to be a mere idle rumor and not at all authentic. For some time past it has been the •mbition of Receiver McNeill, of tbe Oregon Railway & Navigation Co., to bring about a separate receivership for the Oregon Snore Line and Utah North ern, the road being at preseut operated by Receivers Clark, Mink, Anderson, Doane and Condert of the Union Pacific, under ditectioua of the circuit court, al though the accounts are kept separate from the other portions of the Union Pacific system. Mr. McNeill, it is understood, has long been desirous of combining the Oregon Short Dine and Utah Northern with the Oregon Railway and Navigation com pany, thereby making of tbe two roads an independent system. But tbe scheme was not to end here. A Oslifor nia outlet wan to be secured by ex tending the branch now terminating at Frisco, Utah, for adistanoe of 400 mile 6, connecting with the Oregon Railway and Navigation company, thus giv ing the company a through line from Huntington, Ore., to the coast via Portland. For months this has been a walking and sleeping dream of Major McNeill, but when he broached the enbjsct of an independent line to Mr. Boissevain, who has large in terests in both propertie.9, it is under stood that gentleman told the Naviga tion company's receiver he was entirely satisfied to have the management in the control of the present receivers. While the officials at headquartsrs would not talk in detail about the story from Chicago, tbey intimated that for several months past tbey had an inti mation that such a scheme was talked about, but placed no credence in the rumor. Judge Thurston, who returned from Chicago this morning, eaid in re ply to a question that the scheme of re' orgsnization emanated from interests hostile to the Union Pacific. He had heard the matter talked of for some time, but thought there was abs solutely nothing in the story. He placed little credehce in the assertion tbat any such combination was likely to effect a change, in view of the faot that the stockholders ol the property seemed satisfied with the management of the property.

Ban Fxa'choo, Dec. 15.—Since the withdrawal from the Pacific Insurance union of Arthur H. McOlll, general agent for the I'ncenix and Home insur ance companies, ihe compact men at Portland threaten to expel Magill'* agent there from their association. When Magill was informed of this threat, he at once wired Portland that if his agent was thus summarily dealt with, the general agenoy of the PlKcntx and Home in this city would at once order all rates oat along the coast. "If that were done," said a prominent nnderwriter, "the whole Paoilio Insur ance union would go to smash in very short order. Magill is a man oi his word, and if be issues the order to cut, something will drop. I hear tbat be has bean receiving dispatches all day from his man at Portland regarding the situation thsre. I hope the men up north will'not expel the Phoenix and Home agent as they threaten, for if they do, Magill will go in lor reprisals with a vengeance." A committee of tbe Pacific Insurance union is now at work preparing a plan whereby objectionable rules may be so amended tbat all grievances will be settled. A committee is also con sul - ing with Magill, endeavoring to get him' back into tbe compact. He says be will return when he can support the rules. One of the main points of difference among tbe un derwriters is regarding the manner in which business shall be transacted in Oakland, Sacramento, Los Angsles and the principal cities around nan F"rancisco. The only money made in tbe state is made in these places. This is shown by tables of general aver ages kept by various insurance men. Magill, Laniere and others think they should be allowed to conduct their busi ness as tbey please in the cities named ; to establish separate offices and to pay any salary thsy desire to their agents. The rules of the nniondo not allow them the free scope they demand and constant rowß are the resnlt. Tbe outcome ol the Portland affair will be awaited with con siderable interest for much depends upon it. JDItY-BIUBING. fff EXPORT OF UOLD. Tha gtaainar l » Uhimpirni Takae Out • .1,0)10,BOO.
