NSW YORK. Nov. 22. Governor
elect A. B. Cummins of Iowa, who is
at present in New York, made a state
ment yesterday with respect to the
possible results of the joint control of
western railways by the Northern Se
curities company. He said-
"r do not believe there will be any
organized opposition- in Iowa to the big
consolidation of western railroads.
There is a widespread difference of
opmicx: m our suits as to the result
oi the ronsolidation. While it is
recognized that the movement places
a great jower in a few hands, ic is
f recognized also that power may be
used for the people's good as well as
to cheir detriment. It is ielt that it
may eliminate cutting of rates, rebates
J' to large shippers and give steadiness
to transportation charges. Tnese are
some of the things that present the
greatest trouhles to our people.
0n the other hand, the consolida
tion places in the hands of those at
the head of the movement a power that
contains the elements of periL If it
is used to reduce the accommodation,
of the lines, consolidated, to raise their
rats and decrease facilities fcr ship-,
prs and passengers in order to reor
ganize, there is no doubt the people
will be prompt in taking such recourse
as in. their power This would prob
ably assume the form of lawsuits and
legislative action. If. however, the
railroads m the consolidated lines use
their large powers wisely. I see no
reason far them to apprehend any
trouble m Iowa.
T regard the consolidation of tne
northwestern railroads as the first step
toward uniting the interests : all the
great railroad systems west of New
York. When carried through it will
prevent entirely rebates and rate cut
ting, which are great hindrances in
many places to business. Eut if the
powerr of the final consolidation are
uned tc raise rates and decrease facil--ities
of shipment and travel, there is
no doubt the general government
l would step in and regulate rates."
NEBRASKA MERELY WATCHFUL.
LINCOLN, Nov 22. In a statement
given out last night Governor Savage
declares- he knows no reason why Ne

opposing the reported consolidation of
railroad corporations. He maintains
there is no evidence cf a combination
of railroads which parallel each other
in this state, but on the contrary all
lines are active competitors. Ee says,
however thar the laws will be en
forced and that if any railroad corporation-
is found violating any cf them
it will ce called- to swift account and
