'Wc will go to Salt Lake, Portland,

virtually on change in Union Pacfic
affaire. We are waiting for con
gress. It is true that the reorgani
zation committee has objected to
the Hepburn amendment to the
biil in congress which call for the
opening of the various gateways of
the Union Pacific. Such action
will place us in an unjust position,
for while we would have to divide
our business and turn over part of
it to the connecting roads these
same roads would turn over none
to us. There is no question about
the Oregon Snort Line and Utah
Northern becoming a separate sys

change, I hope. I believe that the
Union Pacific will virtually con
trol the road. I think that the
general manager will be Mr. Ban
croft, at present general superin
tendent of the Mountain division
of the Union Pacific. He is the
most desirable man I believe to all
parties. Mr. Coolkige in reply to
