Question was Upon Discontinuing
Use of Interchangeable Cre
Dissensions among the general pas
senger agents of the western roads
have reached a critical point, and
nothing but the interference of the
executive officers can prevent a dis
astrous passenger rate war. At the
meeting of the western mileage bu
reau in Chicago yesterday the Kock
Island threw down the gauntlet, to
The 'meeting was called to act on
the. recommendation of the executive
committee of the Western Passenger
association to discontinue the use of
the present interchangeable 2,000
mile credential ticket and to issue a
2.0OO mile couiMin book good on
trains. The pit position received the
affirmative vote of all the roads ex

conditional on the approval of their

John Sebastian, passenger traffic
manager of the Hock Island, then de
clared that this- action was the result
of animosity towards his company,
which was known to be unalterably
opposed to any ticket that can be
honored by conductors on trains.
The Southwestern Passenger associa

Then Mr. Sebastian declared that if
this fight is continued the INck Isl

Chicago and St. Paul in effect until
the other roads saw Jit to change
their position regarding the sale of
interchangeable mileage tickets.
lie stated, too, that while the Kocjk
Island was not a member of the im
migrant bureau it had been coopera

Proposition Declared Lout.
The chairman declared the propo
sition to substitute an inlcrclianrea
ble 2.000 mile ticket good on trains for

it required a unanimous vote to car

.Several of the roads stated that it
was their intention to give individual
notice that they would adopt the new
ticket notwithstanding the adverse
vote of the Kock Island. They claim
ed they found the mileage credential
ticket was not satisfactory to the
commercial travelers, who demand a
ticket good on trains, and they pro
posed to adopt such a ticket regard
