I)«»fember—Some Trouble Between
the Two Big Sysitnns Over a
Cr.ssliiß Fight at Spoknne-Will
Probably Be Settled Amicably.
The December gross earnings state
ment of the Great Northern was issued |
yesterday. For the total system the j
gTOss earnings for the month amount to I
$2,301,233. Tliis is divided among the j
roads comprising the system as follows:
St. Paul, Minneapolis & Mani
toba $1,858,441) I
Eastern Railway of Minnesota... 233,301
Montana Central railway 209,429
The total earnings ot ihe entire system
from Jan. 1 of the current year 1899 to
Dec. 31 were $26,852,910, against $24,538,499
In comparison with these figures a
statement issued from the treasurer's
office of the Northern Pacific and cover-
Ing the fourth week of December is of
interest. The earnings of that system
for the week were $610,724, as compared
to $590, SCO for the same week a year aso.
The Great Northern and Northern Pa
cific have both made substantial increases
during the month, and the volume of
earnings compared with those of a year
and two years ago show a considerable
betterment lv general conditions.
Northern Pacific Tries to Head Off
Great Northern at Spokane.
The Great Northern and Northern Pa
cific are having trouble at Spokane, and
a legal fight is on to determine the for
mer company's right to cross with its
new right of way through the city the
Northern Pacific transfer track connect
ing the main line with the Standard Oil
company's depot arid the Division street
"bridge. Attorney C. W. Bunn, of the
Northern Pacific, Is in Spokane, and ad
vices were received at the general offices
yesterday giving the status of the fight.
The Great Northern's new tracks and
right of way were completed Saturday
to a point within 100 feet of %he transfer
track of the Northern Paciflo. Grading
on the Great Northern had reduced its
track level twelve feet below the grade of
the Northern Pacific, under and across
■which it planned to complete the line. At
this juncture the Northern Pacific en
tered the courts and secured an order
preventing the Great Northern from com
pleting- the right of way across its tracks.
A force of men were put at work at the
same time, and the transfer track ex
tended a considerable distance.
Attorney Bunn alleges that it was the
Intention of the Great Northern to cross
the track at night and ruin the Northern
Pacific connections with the Oregon Rail
way and Navigation compan3r. Under
the. "Injunction the' Great Northern, its
agents,' employes and contractors are en
joined • "from, grading, blasting, tearing
up or in any way changing the fifty-foot
right of way of the plaintiff, or from in
terfering lri any way with the operation
of its cars, engines" or equipment on the
Connecting track. The defendant com
pany has been ordered to appear in court
Jan. 16 and show cause why the order
should not be extended.
Northern Pacific officials interviewed
regarding the condition of affairs in
Spokane state that the trouble is not one
of a serious nature, and does not neces
sarily indicate that there is friction be
tween the two roads. Crossing fights,
according to an executive officer of the
road, are numerous, and the movements
of roads competing in the same territory
are generally closely watched on both
Bides. Great Northern officials stated
yesterday afternoon that the difficulty
over the transfer track crossing Is one
■Which will be settled by a conference be
tween the interested parties.
"In my experience," said an official of
the road, "there have been, I dare say,
a hundred crossing fights. This is not an
unusual occurrence, and the Spokane
trouble !s such that it can be easily set
tled. It is practically impossible to pre
vent a railroad from going where it
pleases. The supreme court of the United
States has. held that one road cannot pre
vent another from crossing Its line.
"The present trouble can be settled by
condemnation proceedings-or by a trans
fer of crossing rights to .the Great North
ern. In the latter case this road could
purchase outright, but would be compell
ed to maintain the crossing, right of way
and track at that point, not alone on Its
own line, but upon the Northern Pacific
as well. The matter of grades at the
crossing is the only thing giving any
chance of trouble, but this is strictly an
engineering proposition and can be cared
for by Mr. Stevens and his assistants."
latest Combination Proposed by
Railroads of the Country.
CHICAGO, Jan. 18.—In order to carry
out their anti-commission agreement, it
is proposed now to combine all the rail
roads in the country In a big passenger
pool, and operate it in such a way that
each road will get an agreed percentage
of the earnings. By such action no profit
can accrue to any of the roads from ig
noring the agreement. Each road is to
tie allowed to carry all the passengers It
can secure, but any road fhat should
manage to get more than Its allotted pro
portion would have Its labor for its pains,
as the profits would go to the competing
roads that have failed to carry their pro
portion of the business.
The Eastern roads have all voted in
favor of this scheme, and a committee of
Western railroad executive officials is
now at work to get all the Western lines
into the combination. This committee is
composed of S. M. Felton, president of
the Chicago & Alton; Paul Morton, vice
president of the Atchisorr, Topeka &
Santa Fe; J. M. Hannaford, vice presi
dent of the Northern Pacific; J. T. Hara
han, vice president of the Illinois Cen
tral, and J. Ramsey Jr., general manager
of the Wabash.
The railroad managers do not admit
that the formation and maintenance of
a passenger pool would constitute a vio
lation of the law. It always has been the
contention of the railroads that the sec
tion of the Interstate commerce act for
bidding pools relates only to freight traf
fic and does not affect passenger business
In any way, and It now seems to be their
determination to act and fight it out on
The fact that President Felton, of the
'Alton, is chairman of the committee. In
sures the co-operation of the Alton and
Union Pacific railroads, which have been
opposed to pools heretofore. The Great
Northern, which always has been a
stumbling block in the way of pools and
steadfastly refused to join combinations
of that kind, is said to have been won
JUany Railroad Men to Be Thrown
Out as Result of Consolidations.
CHICAGO, Jan. 18.—As a result of the
recent consolidations and agreement
among the owners of the great trunk
railways e*st of Chicago the entire trans
portation system between the Mississippi
river and the Atlantic seaboard is to be
reorganized, involving th 9 following
changes: The abandonment of the city
ticket offices of all of the roads in the
B yndicate in Chicago, New York, Phila
delphia, Boston, Baltimore, Washington,
Pltteliurg, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Detroit,
Indianapolis, Peorla and St. Louis, and
the substitution of joint offices in each
city, The discharge of all city, general,
traveling and district freight and passen
ger agents and solicitors of the-Eastern
roads in all parts of the United States,
Canada and Europe. This will affect near
ly DO.OOO men. The abolition of all forms
of commissions heretofore paid for the
sale of tickets over these roads. This
will affect the incomes of 10,000 agents,
and eliminate the scalpers. The establish,
ment in Chicago and New York of joint
auditing agencies that will apportion to
each road an agreed percentage of the
total competitive business.
FOR ITS OMAHA SERVICE.
Minneapolis & St. Louis Issues Its
Schedule, Effective Jan. 28.
The Minneapolis & St. Louis has issued
a schedule of its new Omaha service,
which will go Into effect on Jan. 28, a
week from next Sunday. Day trains will
leave St. Paul at 9 In the morning, ar
riving in Omaha at 9:40 p. m. Night
trains will leave at 8 o'clock, and will
arrive in Omaha at 8:15 p. m. Day trains
leave Omaha at 7 in the morning, arriv
ing in St. Paul at 7:35 In the evening,
and night trains will leave at 7:35, ar
riving at 8 the next morning. The route
is via Fort Dodge and Council Bluffs.
The service has been delayed on account
of difficulty in obtaining equipment for
the new trains, and on account of dif
ficulty in arranging with the Union Pa
cific for the use of the Omaha bridge.
Northern Paciflo Arranging for an
Unusually Large Amount.
The Northern Paciflo has completed
logging contracts to the amount of 300,
--000,000 feet, to be delivered this winter in
Duluth, Superior and Ashland. This is
said to be the greatest amount of logs
ever covered by any road in the state in
one year. During the week agents of the
road have closed a contract with W. H.
Gilbert, of Ashland, for the transporta
tion of 45,000,000 feet from Douglas coun
ty, Wls., to the head of the lakes. These
logs will be delivered on Duluth harbor.
The Sauntry interests have contracted
with the road for the delivery of 15,000,000
feet from Renshaw, Minn., to their mills,
and the Duluth and Superior mills will
receive about 100,000,000 feet of timber
now under contract. The Gilbert contract
runs through this year and well into next,
as do several of the larger deals.
St Paul Official Changes.
MILWAUKEE, Wls., Jan. 18.-The
Journal today prints , 1 aJI.,laut1 autn°rl 4 tati^
statement from Roswell Miller, chairman
of the board of directors of the Chicago,
Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway company,
in which two appointments are definitely
announced. General Superintendent H.
R. Williams has been elevated to the
position of general manager, and Assist
ant General Superintendent W. J. Under
wood succeeds Mr. Williams as general
superintendent. The successor to Mr.
Underwood as assistant general superin
tendent will not be made for some time.
A new office, that of general ticket
agent, will probably be created soon. The
appointment will have the effect of les
sening the duties of General Passenger
and Ticket Agent George H. Heafford.
Everett Has Hopes.
The opinion prevails on the coast that
the Paciflo port of the Hill Orient line,
which is now in process of formation,
will be at Everett instead of at Seattle.
With the completion of the Cascade tun
nel, the Great Northern will have direct
connections with the Atlantic seaboard
from Everett, and it is argued that with
excellent facilities Everett will be the
port of entry of the new line. Such ac
tion would save a haul of thirty miles
up shore to Seattle on west-bound freight
and a corresponding haul back again on
Put on Colored Fo<rtcra.
The Great Northern has put colored
porters In service on the main line. The
new men are an addition to the force and
wear a special uniform and badge. Their
duties cover any manner of train work
except such as Is part of the operation
of the train. They will assist in loading
baggage, help passengers and be on the
aui vive for their comfort and conven
ience between stops.
To Succeed Mr. Chnrlton.

Maj. Abbot explained that he had in
vited all Interested In the river In any
sense to appear for hearing, in order that
he might have as full as possible a com
prehension of the various Interests In
volved. The law prohibited any one from
interfering with the course of naviga
ble streams, whether by logging or other
wise, and providing severe penalties.
Any one could make complaint against
violators of this law, but it rested with
him to say when suit should be brought
in the name of the government. The
enforcement of the strict letter of the
law might ruin both the disputants.
Then the hearing began.
William M. Blandlng, of St. Croix Falls,
said the St. Crolx River Boom company
had ruined steamer traffic on the river.
By the Nevers dam, 11 miles above the
Dalles, It could control the flow of water
at it 3 pleasure. They had not only ruin
ed the steamboat Interests, but had driv
en out the small mill owners. Mr.
Blandlng thought boats should be allowed
to make trips daily.
H. P. Burdick, of Osceola, said the ef
fect of the Boom company dam had been
to drive navigation off the river.
C. W. Staples, of Osceola, said the St.
Croix had been a navigable highway un
til the construction of the Nevers dam,
which had caused the depopulation of
the towns of Franconla and Marine and
the destruction of thousands of dollars
worth of property. If properly done, the
sluicing of the logs need Interfere but
little with navigation.
Frank B. Dorothy, of St. Croix Falls;
thought the interests of all concerned
might be conserved under proper rules.
The boat might run say four days in
the week—that would be sufficient. He
read a petition signed by a number of
residents of St. Croix Falls, setting out
the damage done by the Nevers dam.
It had been charged, too, that the cus
tom of sluicing the logs down with sud
den rises and sudden falls of the river
was doing an Injury to the channel,
which might be remedied by the aban
donment of the plan, or by the construc
tion of wing dams. A considerable ap
propriation, he thought, should be
recommended by the major for the im
provement of the St. Croix channel.
W. H. C. Folsom said that when the
great western tract was ceded by Vir
ginia to the government in 1787, It was
provided that there should be free nav
igation of all streams in this territory
at all times. He had resided sixty
four years in the upper Mississippi region
and fifty-five years in the St.Croix val
ley. The boom company had destroyed
the navigation of the upper St. Crolx
and built up Stlllwater, at the expense
of the towns above it.
B. E. Blanding, of Taylor's Falls, and
George W. Seymour thought a compro
mise could be reached satisfactory to all.
C. R. Gardner, of Stillwater, thought the
dam a detriment to navigation. George
W. Hazzard thought the steamers ought
to be allowed dally trips up to July 4.
After that five days a week would do.
He presented the following statement:
As requested by your letter, we, th«
undersigned, wish to file with you the
following as our judgment, desires and
requests as to the St. Crolx river:
First—We insist that the river channel
be kept open for steamboat navigation
between Stillwater and the Dalles of the
Second—We protest strongly as to the
manner In which we have been treated
by you In not expending any part of our
appropriation on the river the past two
seasons, and declare the lack of such
outlay of money as could have been made
in a judicious manner in running repairs
has caused our interest to suffer greatly.
Third—We further protest against your
Teport wherein you only recommend one
thousand (1,000) dollars for further ap
propriations, and earnestly petition you
to make the amount twenty-five thou
sand (25.000) dollars In your next report.
Fourth—We recommend that you con
tinue to have the water grausred at the
dalles dally, bo that you can tell what the
even flow of the St. Croix river is, and
that the lumber interest be compelled not
to interfere with such even flow. It can
also be found what draft steamboats can
operate the river with assurance of not
sticking, and If owner puts boats of too
heavy draft on the public can locate the
Fifth—The lumbering Interest should be
and can be so handled as not to interfere
with the free use of the channel. To do
this may call for a separate of friendly
co-operation, and we bespeak your in
fluence to bring this about.
Sixth—lf, however, any one ot any in
terest Interferes purposely with the free
use of the river channel In a manner to
monopolize It, we ask you to commence
action at law against such at once.
Seventh—We earnestly request you pro
ceed at the ea-rllest moment possible to
Improve the river with the money now at
We would further represent that the
actual cash value of the various inter
ests in the aggregate are larger than the
entire capital involved In the lumbering
Interests, although this, however, is not,
at first glance, apparent, because the in
terests thus detrimentally affected are
distributed among thousands of email in
terests, while the lumber industry is con
centrated In the hands of a few large
concerns, well united, who can show in
a moment their entire capital.
We believe that the commerce on the
river and other business interests can be
carried on without destroying one inter
est to build up that of another, or others,
and that the interests of the inhabitants
of the Upper St. Croix valley ia In the
development of our towns, villages, parks,
water powers, manufactories and agri
culture, and that these rights are guar
anteed to ub under the lawß and constitu
tion of the United States.

of the St. Paul & Duluth road, said that
the company had suffered all manner of
inconveniences on account of low water,
which prevented the- running of boats in
connection with excursions on this road.
Time and again the-road was obliged to
refund money for excursion tickets on
account of failure to; comply with the
programme mapped" out.
M. H. Clapp, representing the lumber
ing interests, put S. O'Brien, of
Stillwater, and a number of other wit
nesses on the stattd" to show that the
sluicing had been found to be the only
practicable method', of logging success
fully on the St. Crc4k : river. The Nevers
dam had been built"in compliance with a
requirement of the'legislature, in extend
ing the charter of tfce boom company, so
that the logs would not jam at the Dalles.
He thought that the steamboat men could
get up all right if they had boats suited
to the river, except in rare instances and
when the water was low. The company
would do all it could to help them, but
he considered that the lumbering-inter
ests was of vastly more Importance than
all the other interests pleading for con
sideration. He thought that with har
monious relations the parties could get
along all right, if the steamboat men
would give them notice when they want
ed the river for special excursions. In
order, however, to get ahead enough for
sluicing, it was necessary to shut down
sometimes for a couple of days. Strictly
speaking, the company was violating the
law when it floated loose logs, and it
was liable to be proceeded against by any
citizen; yet, if it brailed its logs together,
they would be a greater Impediment to
navigation than loose.
The conference lasted until nearly 6
o'clock last night, and at the close MaJ.
Abbot said he had had considerable new
light thrown on the subject and felt that
an arrangement might be made satisfac
tory to all, withoii§ t ,resprt to the courts.
