DOWN GO
THE RATES!
War Inaugurated Between the Trans-
continental Lines.
Canadian Pacific Sells $12.50 Tickets
From St. Paul to Seattle.
Seattle Merchants Jubilant Over the Prospects
and Expect Great Prosperity.
The gigantic rate war between
ttio transcontinental rii!rtvu!s,
which has;been predicted (or
weeks past, has it last begun in
earnest. The clash CMC last
night, and today it promises to
assume.proportions never before
realized. For several weeks past
the Great Northern and North
ern Pacific have been selling
second-class tickets to the Pacific
Northwest for $25 to homeseek
crs. Late last night the Cana
dian Pacific and Soo line an
nounced a west-bound second
class rate from St. Paul to the
coast of $12,50, just one-half of
the rate charged by the, Ameri
can lines.
Dispatches received this morn 4
in.: indicate that the Great
Northern will not only meet this
cut, but will pa below It, per
liaps making a rate >>< #10. The
Northern Pacific will next have
to foUow in ; the reduction. The
War wiQ then begin in earnest,
for rumors say that the Canadian
Pacific win temporarily reduce
the rate to the nominal figure of
50 cents to the coast.
Where the sloshhig »ill end Is
a serious problem. The tide to
the Pacific Northwest has set in,
and the roads offering the lowest
rates will get the travel. Sev
eral conventions are slated for the
Pacific Coast, and there will be
an excitinji time in the railroad
world for the next U-w months to
come.
