Chief Conductor Clark of the Order of Hallway Conductors of America had charge of the case and brought out such testimony as showed that the con ductors ncro now working Under on arrange ment that was unfair and unjust. Edward Ducklngham , superintendent of car service , was called. His testimony was principally In regard to the llmo tables of the various divisions of the road. Manager Dickinson wao also asked for certain Information con cerning the conductors' schedules. Division Superintendents Parko and Malloy were also examined on this point. At noonUho case was closed , and was taken under advise ment by the master. The locomotive question was nlso consid ered by the court yesterday.

This was continued from Wednesday. _ . TALKS OP A NKW MM2 OP IIOAI ) . Oniiumiiy OnumlKcil to Shorten Itouto to .Southern California. The organization of the company that Is to construct a railway from Salt Lake City to Los Angeles , a distance of 790 miles , was completed In the latter city a few days ago. Joseph M. Mctcalf , vice president of the Llnlngcr-Motcalf company of this city , Is a prominent stockholder In the new enter prise and a member of the board of directors. Ho said yesterday that ho had Just re ceived a letter from his brother , who Is on the ground looking after the Metcalf Interests. The latter stated that the out look was bright and that there was no doubt but that the road would be built , prob ably within a year. The bonds arc being rapidly subscribed and a number of the Interested Callfornlans will make a trip to New York within a few days for the purpose of conferring with the capitalists of that city who have subscribed to the stock. In discussing the subject , Mr. Metcalt said : "Tho distance between Salt Lake City and Los Angeles is 1,225 miles by the Central Pacific and 2,037 miles by the Santa Fe route. It Is estimated that 10,000 carloads of oranges would annually go over the , new route- from southern California. This short route will also attract considerable other traffic ana it Is thought that the mineral belt of southern Utah will be opened up soon after the completion of the read. All this territory would bo annexed to the Omaha market , as the distance between southern Utah and California and Omaha will then be many miles shorter than It Is at present , and Omaha Jobbers will then have a most valu able field for their work. Practically , the building- this road means that southern California will bo placed BOO miles nearer the eastern markets. " ' DECIDED 1IY I'ASSE.VGEll ACDXTSt ItntcH Mude for ThoHc AVIio Attend Convention * . General Passenger Agent Francis of the Burlington and J. W. Munn of the Elkhorn returned at noon yesterday. They , with Gen eral Traveling Passenger Agent S. A. Hutch ison of the Union .Pacific , represented Omaha at the meeting of the Western Passenger association at St. Louis. The Milwaukee case did not como before the meeting. It will be considered at the meeting of the eastern committee of the association In Chicago on April 7. This case is the appeal of the Milwaukee road from the decision of Chairman Caldwell of the association , the chairman having reversed the finding of the Omaha "low Joints" and nidcrcd the Milwaukee road to pay a fine Tor "Illegitimate railroading. " The question Is whether or not the decision of the chair man , In cases of appeal from local associa tions , shall stand as final. The summer tourist rate question was corsldered and It was decided that the tour ist rates of 1895 should bo used again this season , so far as practicable. There maybe bo some changes , but In the main the rates . will bo the same. A proposition to hold the next meeting of the association at Hot Springs , Ark. , met with the disfavor of a number of the roads. The chairman was ordered to call the meet ing at ono of the principal cities In the ter ritory of the association. It Is possible that It may como to Omaha. Hates of ono fare for the round trip were ordered for the nominating conventions of all four political parties. The dates of sale and other details ot this arrangement will bo worked out by a committee appointed for the purpose. _ JIAVOIl SlITHO WAXES INDIGNANT. Dcelnrt'H ( lint IIuntliiRton IN n Pur veyor of Hunk I'NilNchooil. SAN FRANCISCO , Mnrch , 13. California read the report of the testimony given by C. P. Hiinttnston yesterday before the house committee on Pacific railroads with mingled feelings of amusement and Indignation. In discussing the public feeling In California. \\lth regard to the Central Pacific funding scheme. Mr. Huntlngton Is said to have re marked that there were perhaps 100 people In the Ftate who are opposed to the project. How near Mr. Huntlngton's estimate Is to the truth may bo Judged by the following btatemont made by Mayor Sutro : "Of the 1.R00.090 persons In California It may safely be said that 1,400,000 are opposed to the funding bill. The 100,000 who favor the scheme arc bankers who hold the bonds of the company and people under the control of the company. It Is outrageous that Hunt- Ingtan should have the effrontery to tell Diirh barefaced falsehoods to a congressional committee. Ho would have congress bolleve that I am the only man In the state who Is opposed.to the funding bill , when , as a matter - tor of fact , the sentiment hero Is almost unanimously against It. It would bo .the greatest calamity that over befell a state If Huntlngton succeeds In hoodwinking con gress to paw the bill. The funding scheme proposed by Senator Morgan will be fairly acceptable , " _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Miny IIomenrekcrN Inspected. W. D. Prultt , on Immigration agent who lias been working in the Interests of the liomoseekors' excurelcjia Into Nebraska and Kansas , writes to Ilurllnston headquarters that the prospect In the east for a lively movement this way during the comlug spring Is exceedingly bright.

JIIJT Tim GllAND Alt.MV TKIIMS Nothing ISlnc to Do After the Grcn , AVrtitrrn Onve In , CHICAGO , March 13. Thcro Is no change In the situation In Colorado rates. The Union Pacific , Denver & Gulf Is probably out for blood this tlmo and Intends to keep up the fight. Nothing will bring about a restoration ot rates unless the Atchltxm and the Denver & Quit come t" M agree fnont on the coal rates , or unless the Intlc road Is forced by the tactics ot the lines In the Western Passenger association. These roads are wllllnc to allow the trouble to remain whcro It Is without taking any ac tlon , but If It spreads outsldo of Colorado business proper there will be all sorta o trouble ahead of the Denver & Gulf , as the association lines are not willing to have their general business disorganized because of local squabbles In Colorado. It is now certain that all the roads be tween Chicago , St. Paul and Minneapolis will make the rate and grant the tlmo ex tension demanded by the Grand Army o the Hepubllc for Its annual cncumpmcn next September. It was practically a tore gene conclusion that the other roads wouli follow the action of the Great Western. , , na soon as that line declared It would make the tlmo limit thirty days , as asked by the Grand Army ot the Republic. Many of these roads arc doing this without the best grace In the world , for they feel that the exten sion will cause n demoralization In their regular business that they will feel after the tickets to the encampment proper have expired. However , there was nothing for them to do but to follow the lead ot the Great Western , when once It had declared that it would acccdo to the wishes of the Grand army. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ NUW NOIITHI311N PA CIVIC SCHEME. Still Another Project I.nolcliiK Timnril IteorKHiilrntlon , NEW YORK , March 13. The latest re ports In regard to the Impending reorganiza tion plan of the Northern Pacific railroad are that a voting trust of flvo members , In eluding Messrs. J. P. Morgan , August Belmont - mont and a direct representative of tha DcuLscho bank , will bo made. It is alleged that the preferred stock will bo assessed 0 and the common $15 per share without return except that the preferred will get a part of Its face value In new first preferred. The common will receive less than Its face value in new common stock. The holders of consols will receive first preferred stock to the extent ot the face value ot the bonds and a security for arrears of Interest. The bond charges will bo about $6,000,000. There Is some conflict ot opinion as to whether Mr. Hill be directly represented In the voting trust. The reports as yet lack official au thorlty. Ilnllwny I.litkx nnil Coni > llnK .

At the regular meeting of the Board ol Public Works yesterday afternoon the chair man was Instructed to order Contractor Cor- by to proceed at once with the romalndoi of the Chicago street sewer. This Is the Job which wao partially completed last fall , A snag was struck In the shape of tbo 900 feet of sewer which led beneath the Unlor Pacific tracks. The railroad refused to per mit the construction ot the sewer unless It was covered with stone at a largo additional expense to the city. Neither the balance In the sewer fund nor the plans and specifica tions under which the contract was awarded would permit of the use ot stono. Consequently quently the remainder of the sewer was constructed , but no effort was made to en large the sewer under the tracks. As the spring season approaches the mem bers of the board fear that a sudden rain Is liable to cause considerable damage. The sewer Is four feet In diameter west of the tracks and four and one-half feet on the other side. The old sewer under the tracks Is but three feet. The board was unanimous in deciding that the contractor should now bo ordered to go ahead , notwithstanding the objections urged by the railroad company. They expect that the company will Interfere by mandamus proceedings or otherwise , but they take the ground that In that case the railroad would bo liable for all damages that might result from the failure to com plete the sewer.
