that American competition may enter into

An appropriation of $8,000 was made in

ing to vote upon the ratification of an
agreement to sell to the Pennsylvania
Railroad Company their entire transporta

thereto, and also to ratify an agreement
to sell certain shares of capital stock which
the company owns in other corporations,

The Board of Directors of the Pennsyl
vania Railroad Company met
of last month, when negotiations for the
purchase were concluded, without settling
the details of the transfer. Possession of
the Empire Line will be a
quisition to the great railroad corporations.
The business of exclusively fast freight
lines will bo abolished, and the immeuso
corporation.
The Empire Line is the most powerful of
these freight-carrying monopolies, and
controls the oil trade of this State. To
obtain possession of this is tho main cause
of the purchase, and the value of the
lease is fixed at about $5,000,000 per annum.
