Railroad Officials Secure Con
viction of Weil-Known
Ticket Brokers
Through the efforts of the Trans
continental Passenger association,
three well known St. Louis ticket
scalpers have been successfully prose
cuted for violating the injunction pro
hibiting brokers from handling world's
fair tickets. The men found guilty
Thursday in the federal court at St.
Louis are E. J. Gildersleeve, Clifford J.
Gildersleeve and Louis Tillman and
each was fined $250. They were warn
ed that if again found guilty of hand
ling the non-transferable tickets the
penalty would be greatly increased.
The news of the conviction of the
scalpers created great joy among St.
Paul passenger officials, especially
among the men who are connected
with lines that are members of the
Transcontinental Passenger associa
tion. Some months ago the associa
tion appointed a committee on ways
and means to stop scalping. This com
mittee is composed of John Francis,
general passenger agent of the Bur
lington; G. T. Nicholson, passenger
traffic manager of the Santa Fe; W. J.
Black, general passenger agent of the
Santa Fe: C. S. Fee, passenger traffic
manager of the Southern Pacific; T.
H. Goodman, general passenger agent
of the Southern Pacific, and H. C.
Townsend, general passenger agent of
the Missouri Pacific.
The chairman of the Transcontinetal
association yesterday promulgated the
following report of the committee:
"The securing of injunctions at Chi
cago, St. Louis. Kansas City, and else
where, prohibiting brokers from deal
ing in certain forms of one way and
round trip signature tickets, will very
laipely curtail the operations of the
scalpers in the centers referred to. It
is recommended to the Pacific coast
terminal lines that they secure similar
injunctions on the Pacific coast, enjoin
ing the brokers from handling all
foims of transcontinental tickets, in
asmuch as all of them are non-trans
ferable signature tickets.
"It is pointed out that the securing
of such injunctions will practically put
liie Pacific coast brokers out of busi
ru bp.
"It is further recommended that all
members of the Transcontinental Pas
senger association, not Pacific coast
terminal lines, agree that, if it is found
desirable for their companies to be
party to such application for injunc
tions on the Pacific coast, they will
promptly and heartily co-operate with
the Pacific coast terminal lines in such
legal steps as may be found necessary
to perfect this arrangement."
If the recommendations of the com
mittee are carried out, A. Ottinger,
president of the American Ticket Bro
kers' association and the owner of
more than a dozen offices between Chi
cago and the Pacific coast, may be
forced out of the ticket brokerage
business. His downfall would carry
with it that of most of the members
of the American Ticket Broker's asso

Cut in Grain Tariffs Will Hurt
Export Flour Busi
The reduced rates on grain, which went
into effect yesterday on all Eastern rail
way lines, make it impossible for Minne
apolis millers to compete with those in
foreign lands, and unless some immediate
change is made there will be a general
closing of the mills throughout the North
west. According to the new rate wheat
can be shipped for 5 cents per 100, while
the rate on flour is 8% cents.
Wheat can be taken from Chicago and
placed alongside ship for 4% cents. C.
C. Bovey, of the Washburn-Crosby com
pany, when seen yesterday, said:
"The pretext for this discrimination
is given to the daily press as a retaliation
against the rates on similar commodities
by the Canadian carriers. But how
shortsighted this is on the part of the
traffic officials of the roads of the United
States? Why not make the rate on flour
lower and move the wheat in the manu
factured form, thereby giving employment
to labor, while the roads get the same
tonnage and the same amount of reve
"It is needless to say that there will be
a closing down of mills until the traffic
managers come to their senses and put
flour on a parity with wheat. The flour
rates must be reduced SV2 cents per 100
to enable the millers to do an export
Matters were thrown into just the same
state at the time of the New York Cen
tral-Pennsylvania rate war, when all Min
neapolis flour mills were compelled to
close. At that time a committee from the
Northwest called on the interstate com
merce commission and after putting their
case before the commission managed to
have matters once more equalized, but
apparently it was all for naught, for under
the present rates foreigners can buy
wheat in America, take it to Europe,
make of it and ship it back to America
at a profit.
The Minneapolis mills have been turn
ing out only 75 per cent of their capacity
since the last trouble, but were getting in
shape to run at full speed again when
this final blow was received, and there
will be nothing left for them but to close
Under the new tariff all grain from Buf
falo is placed upon a 3-cent basis. This is
a reduction of 1 cent per bushel on wheat
and flax, % of a cent per bushel on corn
and V* cent per bushel on barley. No
reduction is made on oats, because the
export movement is limited.

Rev. Joseph J. Fox Will Become Arch
bishop Messmsr's Successor
MILWAUKEE, Wis., July I.—lt is
officially announced that Rt. Rev. Jo
seph J. Fox has been selected to suc
ceed Archbishop Messmer as bishop
of the diocese of Green Bay. Arch
bishop Messmer said of Father Fox:
"I have always looked upon him as
the one man for the place, he being
thoroughly and intimately acquainted
with the conditions of the diocese. No
man in the diocese is so well liked by
the clergy and the laymen alike. In
fact he was their choice for the posi

the confidence of the people in a mark
ed degree. I believe that the diocese
of Green Bay could not be given into
better hands."

work being at New Franken, in Brown

inette and Green Bay. He was ap
