basin of understanding upon which a
settlement of tho governments suit
for the dissolution of the socalled
Harriman lines may bo reached a
number of conferences between offi
cials of the railways and the govern
ment will probably ho held during
tho next few days The first of such
conferences was held yesterday and
President Taft was among the con
ferees
The governments suit IK pending
under the Sherman antitrust law It
Is understood the Harriman lines do
sire to effect a settlement without
havlns the courts adjudicate the case
President Taft IB understood to bo
awaiting revolution of the railroads
purpose as to compliance with tho law
before Indicating what his position
will be
Judge Robert S Lovett president
of the Union Pacific former Senator
John C Spooner and Maxwell Evarts
attorneys for tho Harriman lines At
torney General Wlckcrsham and
Frank B Kellogg special attorney for
th United States In the case against
the railroad will be participants in
the conference
New York Jan 11A proposition
looking to tho separation of the South
ern Pacific and Union Pacific system
is now under consideration between
President Taft and Attorney General
Wlckersham and officials of the Har
rirunn railroads and following tho
conference of Attorney General Wlck
ersham and Judge Lovott head of tho
Harriman sjstem In Washington it
was said In Wall street today that a
definite announcement of tho separa
tion was onh a question of time
The executive committee of the Har
riman lines In tho Union Pacific Rail
road company the Southern Pacific
company the Oregon Short Line and
the Oregon Railroad Navigation
company held their regular weekly
meetings today Judge Lovott an
nounced in advance that nothing other
than routine business would engage
the attention of the committees Nor
theloss It is taken for granted that
the conference at Washington would
be very thoroughly discussed
Judge Lovott declined to talk about
yesterdays meeting hut some of his
associates said that his visit to the
national capital had not been barren
of results Those results it was add
ed wore quite satisfactory to the rail
road Interests although no further
details wore vouchsafed There Is
reason to believe that at yesterdays
meeting a proposition Vas mode h
Ill as Us ultimate end the separation
of the Union Pacific and Southern Pa
chile roads along the lines laid down
by the government In its suit
This proposition came from the rail
road Interests and according to Wall
street gossip Is likely to be finally
entertained by the government provid
ed certain other conditions Imposed by
the administration are incorporated
therein
It is believed another visit of the

may bo followed by a definite an
