Now York, July 32. The Herald lays: A deal la under way involving the combination of at least four prom inent railroads, and perhaps two or three mors, making a complete trunk line from the Atlantic to the Pacific. The scheme involves a merging of sev eral of the properties in which Kuhn, Loeb A Company, E. H. Huirlman and Bpeyer & Company are Interested, and, with their friends, exert a controlling influence." v Among these properties are the Un ion Pacific, the Illinois Central and tbe Chicago As Alton, the Chicago Ter minal Transfer Comapny, the Oregon Short Line.the Oregon Railway & Nav igation Company and the Baltimore & Ohio. It is asserted in some quar ters that the Great Northern will come In, but this It considered doubtful, al though James J. ilili is closely asso ciated with several of the gentlemen who are prominent in tbe railroads mentioned. Tblt combination will give a com pact system, aud will bring about a revolution in traffic alliance. The Un ion Paclfio la the keystone. Itt olosest connection at present it the Chicago & Northwestern, and , for long time it bat been the "prevailing opinion in Wall street thai the Vanderbilts would attach both the Northwestern and the Union Pacific, and weie not aware un til a few weeks ago of what was going on. The Northwestern directors have hurriedly considered the advisability of extending their Fremont branch to Ogden to a connection with tbe Central Pacific, which it controlled by the Southern Pacific. Cut off from tbe Union Paclfio. the Northwestern will find no toad to turn to for Pacific coast business that doet not parallel it lor a considerable dittanoe. Thus, with the Northwestern ex tending its Fremont, Elk Horn & Mis souri River railway from Casper to Ogden, in order to fight the Union Pa cific, and the Northern Paoifio forced to protect itself against the Oregon lines, which have recently been acquired by the Union Pacific, there is likely to be grest time among tha great trans, continental roadt In the near tutor.
