'LINES FROM OCEAN TO OCEAN Talk of Consolidations Which May Oontrol Overland Traffic. OUTLINE OF THE VANDERBILT SCHEME Old Htorr Ilrvnmiicil Petitmj-1- vnnln Itond Hnld to He I.nukliiK to the Control of the Snnln 1'e S > MI-HI. NEW YORK , July 12. The Tribune says : Ono of the ccrtalntlw of the not distant future , In the opinion of Wall street , Is fho establishment of a transcontinental railway line umlw Vnndorbllt control. The Boston & Albany , the Xow York Central nnd the Wcrt Shore nro the Vnndorbllt llnw linking Now York ami Boston , the great cities of the eastern seaboard , with Buffalo ; nnd Buffalo la Joined to Chicago by the Lake Shore , the Michigan Central and the Nickel Plate. The Chicago Northwestern , which is practically a Vandcrbllt road , stretches westward from Chicago to Omaha , where It me ts the Union Pacific , n. controlling In- twtBt In wMoh the Vanderbllta are credited with holding. The western tormlnl of the Union Pacific nro Granger , Wyo. , nnd Offdcn. U4nh , nt both of which points the road connects with ho Oregon fihort Line. From Granger the Short Line runs northwestward to Huntington - ton , Ore. , Where It connects with the Oregon Jlallroad Navigation line extending to the Pacific coast at Portland , and from Ogden a branch of the Short Line goes southward to Mllford , UUh , from which place the Utah & Pacific Is being built into California , it Is reported , with a view to enabling the Union Pacific to gain entrance Into San Francisco. As already said , the Vanderbllts are com monly understood to control both the North western nnd the Union Pacific. But the Union Pacific In turn , controlti the Oregon Short Line and the Oregon Short Line vir tually controls the Oregon Railway & Navi gation company. With thoao several con trols \\lthln controls. Wall street argues , it will not bo beond the power of William K. Vnndorbllt to realize the ambition which ho Is everywhere believed to cherish of coalescing thrso connecting lines Into a vast system from ocean to oce.in. While It is well understood that n cordial understanding exists between the Now York Central under the broad management of William K. Vnnderbllt and the Pennsylvania under the guidance of Its now president , A. J. Cassatt , this understanding , extending to the development of plans for a division of territory In Now England and to an agree ment to net together In the maintenance of rates , no ono now believes , If Indeed any ono over has bellovcd , that a consolidation of these two great systems , occupying such part of the Hold east of Chicago , would bo effected. An thcso natural rivals in busi ness are working In harmony east of Chicago cage , so they may bye and bye bo found competing on a bosla of good faith and mutual regard In the western country , for rumors are beginning to bo hoard with In creasing persistence that the Pennsylvania , llko the Now York Central , Is contemplating nn extension of Its lines to the Pacific. The Atchlson , Topeka & Santa Fo is the road which report has It will bo combined with the Pennsylvania to form the second great transcontinental system. A third transcontinental line , Jt to be- HoVod by not a few observers of the trend of railway- ownership and affiliations , will nome day bo formed by the consolidation of the Baltimore & Ohio , the Great Northern nnd the Northern Pacific , but this combina tion Is thought to bo further away than either of tha other two. FAST MAIL MAKES GOOD TIME ItnllrondB Continue to Triumjiort Mull vrltli Oreat Sliced anil IlCKiiliirity. During the closing weeks of the year 1S9S and the opening of the present year , public interest throughout the middle wait , aa well as to the extremes of the United Statea , was centered on the races Indulged In by trains representing the great railway systems competing for big prizes In the shape of fust mall contracts between Chicago cage and Omaha. The journeys of thcso trains , the marvelous speed attained by them , the clockwork regularity with which the mall was transported from Chicago to Omaha nnd then back again In Its course ucroes the continent wcro matters of gen eral interest. While the public Interest has subsided to a degree wliero but llttlo at tention IB paid any more to the speedy runfl of the fast malls , the railroads have not lessened their endeavors to contlnuo the records made when the conteet for the fast mall cqntract waa on. As a result , the delivery of the malls between Chicago nnd Omaha on the exclusive mail trains of the different railroads continues to bo emi nently satisfactory. . > | One thing which the exciting race for the mall contract resulted in which Is of general public interest la the betterment of time and improved traffic accomodatlons by all the railroads. The publlo showed by the close attention paid to the records made by the fast malls that it was Interested to a marked degree lu tbo matter of tlmo made , and to satisfy the demand for better tlmo and Im proved service the four great railroads run ning Into Omaha from Chicago , are vlelng with efch other In their efforts to please the pubFlu in tills direction. Especially Is this true us to time. Hy railroad men fast run ning is not no important aa a reasonable speed and strict compliance with scheduled time. In other words , "on time" is the wotuhword with the railroad officials who have to do with the running of the trains , and n statement of the past six months , rail road men say , were It accurately prepared , would show a decidedly marked Improvement In the regularity of all the passenger trains , nnd by comparison with former years would convince th publlo that railroad methods und Improvements are constantly advanc ing.

The now rate on tbcso two roads became effective "Wednesday of this week. The Grand Trunk , Nickel Plato nnd Wabasli roads claim to have received no advices concerning the raising of the rates and , consequently , have as yet announced no change In the $33 fare.
