'--saTfe DAILY ARIZONjt SILVER BELT 4 4 t' 5 V if VOLUME GLOBE, GILA COUNTY, ARIZONA, JfWRSDAY, JANUARY 10, 1907 Number 77 '? -HS TRAFFIC MEN ON THE RACK Stubbs of Harriman Lines Says Competition Between Lines Always Was Keen, MANAGERS INSIST STIFLING IMPOSSIBLE Personal Spirit of Employees of Roads Under Same Man agement Kept Up Competi tion for Same Business, By Assoc in ted Press. "CHICAGO, January 9. Two attor neys representing the government intuit determined efforts today to induce two traffic managers of transcontinental railroads to admit that concentration of ownership means stilling of compe tition in railroad traffic. The. nttornoys wore Messrs. Severance and Kellogg, and the traffic managers woro J. C. Stubbs of the Southern Pacific and Union Pacific systems and J. M. Han ntford of the Northern Pacific. Both men contended that despite the consolidation of interest that had taken plaee between Union Pacific and South cm Pacific and between Northern Pa cific and Great Northern, competition between the lines which are under joint ownership is as sharp as it over was. U. P. Only a Link Stnbbs asserted from the first that the Uniou Pacific nover had been an activo competitor of the Southern Pa cific on California business, for the rea son that it had no outlet beyond Ogdcn, Utah, on its own rails direQt to Califor nia. Such competition, he said, as had existed between the two roads in the past .s still in ovideuue. Union Pacific lie claimed is but a link in transporta tion between the Missouri river and California and not a separate and inde pendent line. When asked if ho did not believe that a railroad which has a large surplus and paying 10 per cent dividends is not in position ta favor the public with lower rates, Stubbs with considerable feeling said he wished the members of the interstate commerce commission and their attorneys to remember that while the Union Pacific may bo prosperous now, the stockholders had experienced many "lean" years and that there was no human guarantee that the present satisfactory conditions in railroad traf fic throughout the country would be indefinitely maintained. Stifling Impossible Upon the subject of stilling competi tion, Stubbs declared it was not possi ble for this to be done, no matter who owned the parallel lines under consid eration, subordinates with a reputation to mane or sustain would work for the interest of their lines against all other lines, and competition must therefore inevitably follow. He aserted that J. J. Hill while prob ably the leading railroad man in the country could not abolish competition between the Northern Pacific and the Great Northern becauwe of the personal spirit of the men he employs. Hunnatord expressed similar views regarding the stilling of competition. The only other witness of the day was M. C. Markham, traffic manager of the Missouri Pacific. Stubbs on Stand CHICAGO, January 0. J. C. Stubbs, traffic director of the Union it ml South ern Pacific systems, was called as a witness before the interstate commerce commission today. He answered many questions. Stubbs said that the rates from Pittsburg to the Atlantic, thence via the Morgan steamship line and Southern Pacific to California, were the same as those via all railroads, but he believes very little freight from Pitts burg, Buffalo or Wheeling ever went that way. Asked whether freight could not be routed by his Chicago office either via New Orleans or Ogden, the witness said that tlyj line on which the tratuc orig Minted dictated the route, lie said there was strong competition in Chicago for Pacific coast business. Ho wns asked if Neimycr, his Chicago ngont, was a eompetitor for this business. "He is," said Mr. Stubbs. "Is he a competitor as between the Union Pacific and Southern Pacific?" "As much as he over was. ' "That means that ho was never n competitor?" Had to Be Consistent Mr. Kellogg asked many question? regarding the competition of the Union Pacific and Southern Pacific, designed to show that tho roads were, prior to 1901, but not now, competitors. Stubbs' answers were not always satisfactory to the attorney. Stubbs continued: "They are not competitors for California bus! ness, and never were, according to my theory." Stubbs wns asked if earlier in his connection with the Southern Pacific the Union Pacific made nigher rates to California points from points west of new York than from New York itself because the Southern Pacific was com pelled to assume the eastbound haul to New York in order to connect with the steamship lines. "That was done," said Stubbs. "We had to bo consistent." Wouldn't Cut Rate Stubbs in answer to questions said that prior to 1901 the Union Pacific and Southern Pacific had separate solicitors in various cities seeking the same Pa cific coast business. Kellogg asked Stubbs if he would permit tho cutting oi rates by tuo Southern Pacific in order to tnko business from tho Union Pacific or vico versa. "No," he replied. "Did you cut rates on tho Southern Pacific in order to tnko business front tho Union Pacific prior to tho consoli dation?" "I think not." "You never did that?" "No." "Nevor cut any rates?" "Wo never organized any cut rates." "Aro not transcontinental rates now about 10 per cent highor than before the consolidation?" "All lines tried to advance rates about 12 per cent but they could not be maintained." Competition Just as Keen Kollogg submitted to tho witness statements showing that the Union Pa cific had been prosperous the last few years and asked in viow of this if he considered the present rates as equit able. "I considor them entirely reason able." "And competition between Union Pacific and Southern Pncific is still keen" "Just as keen." "Do you think this?" "No, I know it." Commissioner Clements naked if tho Southern Pacific owned stock in the Southern Pacific Express companv. Stubbs roplied that ho boliovod.it did.. Owne Wells Fargo Stock Up was asked if the Union Pacific hold stock in tho Wells Fargo company. Witness was unable to answer, but the Union Pacific nttorney said that tho railroad held about 10 per cent of the express company stock. In response to Commissioner Lane's questions Stubbs declared thnt there is as much competition botweett transcon tinental lines as there over was. "Would tho fact," asked Lane, "that two roads such us Northern Pn cific and Great Northorn woro under one ownership have any effect on rates?" "T don't boliove thnt it would have a particle of effect," said Stubbs. If IN Vote Will Be Taken on Abolish ing the Grade of Lieutenant General in the Army. SENATOR TILLMAN 0NTHE SICK LIST Discussion of Brownsville Res olutions Postponed Until To day Because Southern Sen ator Wants to Speak, fly Associated Press. WASHINGTON, D. C, January 8.

A point of order was made and sus tained against tho paragraph in the bill abolishing the grado of lieutenant general with the retirement of Gen eral MacArthur, tho present officer of that grade. Among other items stricken out were the following: Giving the commanding officers at army posts or headquarters, authority to appoint clerks and other employees, authorizing the sale of sur plus stores in Cuba and the Philippines; permitting construction and operation of laundries at military itosta, providing for the sale of fuel to officers on the active list, prohibiting the expenditure of any money for brigade jiosts except by authority of congress.

Such a rule is necessary if tho vote be taken, from the fact that the paragraph abolishing the office was stricken out today.

Warm rains and melting snows in tho Grnhniu county mountains caused tho 'Frisco river to again go on a rampage and its waters brought down consider able debris, which, coming in contact with the pride of tho 0. V. G. & N., caused said pride to fall somewhat. The damage to the bridge, however, was slight as compared with tho Hood of last month, as only one bent, seven teen foot, of the bridge was washed out. Although tho underpinning was swept down with tho wntors, tho string ers remained, so that tho damage done wns not very serious.

By "Associated Press. LOS ANGELES, Cal., January 9. Two indictments against tho Santa Fc railroad for rebating were returned to day by the federal grand jury. Conces sions on lime shipments from Arizona were the basis for the jury's action. Two indictments were returned against the Grand Canyon Lime & Ce ment eomnanv. one containing six counts for accepting rebates and the other containing seventeen counts tor accepting concessions. Tho first indictments against the San ta Fo contains sixty-six counts for granting concessions to John S. Schirm and tho Grand Canyon Lime & Cement company in the shipment of limo from Nelson, Ariz., to Southern California points. The second indictment contains ten counts for giving rebates to the Grand Canyon Lime & Cement com pany, the road having accepted tho full tariff and then remitted part of it. AJ1 the indictments were brought for violntion of tho provisions of tho Elkius act and under provisions of this law tho railroad, if convicted, may be fined from $1,000 to $20,000 for each offsnsc, orn totnl of $1,320,000 if the highest penalty should be imposed. .

A committee headed by Attorneys Stone man and Hill and others who have been foremost in the movement has been busy visiting the taxable inhabitants ; for tho purpose of securing their signa tures and in spite of threats made in various sources, comparatively little op position to tho movement was encoun tered. The work of drawing up the petition . and necessary legal steps were taken aftor numerous consultations and it is not belioved that a possible opening was left for those who have been an- tagonistic, to dissolve the municipal or ganization which will follow. There is considerable speculation as to the board 'b action in appointing a council. It has been understood that w'. tho board would reappoint as membors of the council thoso who were selected last October and who suosequently went out of office with tho municipal govern ment, as the result of quo warranto proceedings brought by the district at torney. This belief obtained until yesterday when a petition was circulated by sev eral citizens which will bo presented to the board of supervisors at the timo tho incorporation petition is presented. The new petition, to which was attached nu merous signatures yesterday, requests the board to appoint seven well known business men as members of the city council. Nono of tho seven were in the council of last October. Just what the object of the petition is has been the subject of some speculation -but it is hinted that parties who desire favors from the council arc the most active in its circulation.
