Consummated At Last.
Nr.wi'ouK , Sept. 2. The mysterious move
ment of tlio slock market during tlio past
week and continued rumors from all sources
that some Important developments wore hang
ing o\ur tliu railroad and telegraph world
wore explained by the facts which were made
public late this afternoon. After breaking
oil his negotiations with Ives A Co. Mr. Garrett -
rett wont to London , whore the negotiations
were continued with J. 8. Morgan , and to-day
n deal was Announced comparable In Import
ance with tlio West Shore's settlement with
the NPW York Central , and the forming of
the Heading syndicate to reorennlzo that
company. Both of these deals were carried
through by Drexel , Morgan & Co. ,
but In the Inttcr cane Edward Lauterbach
was the most prominent liguro as mediator
between the Gowen and Drexcl
Interests and In the agreement DOW made ho
also takes a prominent place. The consum
mation ot the contract made to-day WAS held
In abeyance until his opinion was obtained
on the question of whether the sterling loan
made by tbo Baltimore A Ohio railroad cov
ered the telegraph system of the company.
After studying the question In all Its aspects
he decided that the telegraph lines were free
from all liens , and on receiving this opinion
an agreement In the nature of a preliminary
contract was executed to-day. The parties
to the contract arc the lUltlmoro A Ohio
railroad company and a syndicate cum nosed
of J. S , Morgan & Co. , Baring Bios. & Co. ,
Brown , Shipley & Co. and Brown Brothers.of
this city , and Drexel & Co. , of Philadelphia.
Tlio most Important point In the contract
provides that the management of the com
pany shall bo placed In competent hands sat-
Isfactoiy to the syndicate. Who the men ao
who will bo satisfactory to the syndicate
cannot bo ascertained , but A. J. Cassat , the
vice president of the Pennsylvania railway ,
Is generally believed to bo booked as Mr.
Oarrotl's successor. Satisfactory contracts
are also to be made with the Pennsylvania
and Heading railways on all business north
of Philadelphia and with all other trunk
lines entering New York by which the an
tagonism will be removed and Insure the
permanent working of the Baltimore it Ohio
in harmony with other trunk linos.
In addition to these contracts the
lines In process of construction from
Philadelphia to New York will be suspended
In their construction just as they now stand
and the work on Sinten Island stopped. In
consideration of those contracts being signed
and with the control In their hands the syn
dicate agree to relieve the railroad from Us
present embarrassment by providing 810,000-
000 with which to take rp the llnatlnc debt.
This will be represented by 8.r ,000,000 In Bal
timore * Ohio consolidated 5's and 35,000,000
preferred stock. The lloatlng debt na
it stands amounts to $7,000.000. mostly In the
shape of certificates ot Indebtedness , script
and notes. Of this amount (4.000,000 Is said
to have matured on the 1st lust. One of the
parties to the syndicate lias autlion/od the
following statement as the outcome of the
contract : "The position of the Baltimore A
Ohio railroad as an Ishnmellto In lallroad ,
Bleeping car , express and telojrnph business
Is given up. All outside enterprises will bo
fold to parties to whom they will bo valuable.
The Western Union will control , If it does
not buy the telegraph lines , ana the Pullman
Palace Car company will take the
Bleeping car business. The express
business has already gone to the United
Estates express company. Tlio affairs of tin
railroad company will bo entirely rcorgati
Ued and placed upon n hound linancia
basis. " Drexel , Morgan ACo. . were in dlrec
correspondence with their house In Loudoi
and Philadelphia , and late In the oveniiif
continued the statement * that thu contract !
nnd negotiations given above had just beet
Outside of the facts given above they do
cllved to speak. The cause of the contrac
suspending all work on the extension fron
Philadelphia to New York is believed to b
thu key note of the syndicate's Interests ii
the negotiations , and Is construed to mcai
that the Baltimore fe Ohio railway , whui
divested of all extraneous enterprises , wil
bo operated practically by the Pcunsylvnul

rates to near thu Inter-state rate now in force
with the board of railroad and warehouse
commissioners , the railroad representatives
and shippers and manufacturers present held
a secret meeting together last night and
again this morning till at about 11:30 : o'clock ,
when they made the following icport to the
board : After n full discussion of matters , at
the request ot all the representatives ot rail
roads , the representatives of the shippers
concurring therein , It was resolved that the
commissioners bo asked to postpone further
consideration of the complaint for thirty
days : that If at the end of that time thu rail
roads shall put In force rates which shall have
remov ed the cause of complaint , the complaint
shall , with the consent of the commissioners ,
bo dismissed , otheiwlso It shall bo submitted
for further hearing and such action as shall
to the commission sueui lawful and just.
General McNulta further states that a com
mltteu of railroad men had been appointed to
meet and \\IUincoinmitteuotship- -
pers and canvnss the matter and to allow
such satisfactory rates as may be deter
mined upon and at the end of thirty days
this committee , If successful , will FO report to
the board , and If not , a report will bo made
and the commission can take such action as
they deem the case demands. The commit
tees are : For the railroads , K. I' . Klnley ,
Chlcaeo , Burlington AQulncy ; W. M. Dun
can , of the Ohio & Mississippi ; II. C. Dlchl ,
of the Toledo , I'eoria A Western : J. O.Gram-
mar.oftho 1'eorla. DecaturA Evnnsvlllo ; 11.C.

the shippers : W. A. Brubacker , of 1'eorla ;
J.G. Moydof DccnturjC. Henklcof Spring
field : Fred Wild , of Itock Island ; J. B. Bos-
worth , of Qulncy. The railroads appear to
reco nie tlio probability that should the mat
ter bo left to the commission to decide a re
duction would certainly be made. By taking
tills course they have everything to gain and
nothing to lose , since they can , and no doubt
will , make some reduction In state rates ,
while by this course a higher rate will bo
saved to them than might be fixed by the
commission In casuof nchatiL-e In their tariff.
Tlio board met again at 2.TO : In the after
noon to discuss the rates on coil adopted by
them July 20. The rate heretofore charged
bv the roads has been M cents per ton for a
long and short haul. The comnihslon made
n ratu at a meeting on the 20th of July tUIng
the maximum prices at 40 touts for a distance
of ten miles and over slv , nnd 50 ( .cuts for n
distant.o of twenty miles and under htteon.
The roads contend thnt if the rate
for a ton mile haul Is fixed nt
40 cunts they will have to charge The
samu along the whole of their line , which
they cannot do , as It will bankrupt tlmm. If
a mine is located within ten miles of a mar
ket and there are others on the same line
within forty or fifty miles of the same mar
ket the latter could not alTord to pay n
higher rate than the ono nearest to thu con
sumer. The consequence would be that the
mines most distant would Imvo to cense
operations or simply sell to their local trade.
The case was ably argued by Mcssis. Jeffrey ,
of the Illinois Central , Mr. Smith , of the
Louisville & Nashville , Mr. Charles Uldg-
uly , of Springfield , and others. Statistics
wore elven to show why thu roids could not
afford to havu the rates reduced. The matter
was taken under advibumeut by the commis

to the IlKU.J lleprusi'iitntive Cnrllslu's visit
to the president K very slgnlllcant every
body ndmltsbtit the conjectures nbout the ob
ject of the conferoncu which Is bolnit held
rniiKOoveraory wldo Held. It vvns re
ported some time ngo that Congressman
Mills was hero and tlmtCnrllsluwasu.xpectcil
soon. Since Cnrllslu's nrrivnl the two Imvo
bad several conforetiees , mid nil dny yostcr-
day and to-day Mills and n cleik of the house
have boon locked up nud nro getting up tar
iff figures. It fins nlio been learned from the
\t < rytH ! t authority thnt Secretary Fniiehlla
has been hunt for , although nobody
at the treasury department knows
of It or expects him. Ho will bo hero
to-night or to-morrow. The object ot the
commltteo Is to formulate n tariff bill. Thu
revenue programme will concede the abolish
ment of the tobacco , but no other Internal
revenue tax , nnd then slash the tailff. The
president and Carlisle are , of the opinion that
Unnd.xll will ; ioso the support of most ot his
southern friends when the tobacco tav Is re
moved , and they think he cau bo so Isolated
In that w v. A friend of Itandall sav shell
to be here Monday and coufur with Cnrllslo
and the president lint that is , perhaps not
correct. It Is ulso a fact that It Is proiwccl
not to elect Carlisle speaker , but to lut him
take the chairmanship of thu committee on
ways and means , and bo onoot thu
democratic leaders of thu house.
I his proposition was made because
Mills docs not cnjov the coiilldcnco of his
party nnd would not bo a match for Handall
and the republicans. But Carlisle seems to
bo the only nblu man among the democrats ,
and If ho is to ho on the floor ho cannot bo Iu
the chair , nud there is no one to put In the
chair who could rule the house and his pirty
successfully except Handallvlio Is out of the
question for that reason. They are still con
sidering whether Mr. Carlisle could do moro
In the chair than on the floor and vlco vers-a.
Indications point to the decision that ho must
nualn bu speaker nnd thnt Mills Is to bu chairman -
man of the committee on wnvs nnd moans ,
although Mills ays ho would willingly glvo
way to Cnrllslu on the committee , but would
not consent to Imvo niiy other man put there.
The situation isery Interesting. The tarltt
reformers have decided to bring Randall's
followeis to desert him and it remains to bo.
scon what will bu their success.
