A Frclcht Complication.
CniOAOo , July 13. [ Special Telegram to
TUB BEB. ] The east-bound freight compli
cation was still further mixed to-day by a
notice of tbo Michigan Central that It would
meet the Grand Trunk cut to 20 cents on all
classes of grain , Chicago to Now York , next
Friday. It will bo remembered that the
Grand Trunk gave notice that It would ad
vance all rates to the 25 cent busts on July
24. This notice superseded its notice of re
duction to 20 cents. The joint committee do-
oldod in New York , on Wednesday , that on
July 23 the rates of 30 cents on corn and 2 >
cents on wheat should go Into effect. Ac
cording to this , all central trafUc and trunk
line roads , cxcent the Grand Trunk and
Micnignu Central , will put the joint commit
tee rates into effect July 22. The Grartd
Trunk will r.iiso all the grain rates to 25
cents July 24 , meantime charging 20 cents ,
und uftor July 10 tha Michigan Central will
charge 20 cents on all classes of ? rnm. Of
course this paradoxical state of nffulrs can
not exist , und unless the Joint committee

Sioux FALLS , S. D. , July -Spoclal [ Tol-
ogrnn'i to THE BRK. [ Thirty delegates , six
loss than n quorum , were nil that put In nn
appearance at this afternoon's session of the
constitutional convention , Judge Cars'an , of
Dcailwood , presided , Judge Kdgorton having
gone to his homo at Mitchell for Sunday. A
dc&lgn for the great soul of South Dakota
was received from n Chicago llrm of en
gravers nnd referred to the proper commit
tee , and then the convention adjourned until
'Monday at 2 p. m. , after being In session
seven mlmilos. It Is now settled that the
convention will remain iutnct three weeks
longer. As n body It has decided to m'copt
nn invitation to attend the waterway con
vention nt Superior , VVIs. , on Tuesday ,
August 0. The wives of the dele
gates nro to go also , and there Is to
bo a special train ride , a baDQitut and a ptcnla
generally. Arrangements are being nego
tiated with n view to having the convention
of .North Dakota go with * the party , but it Is
believed here that the northern neighbor
will remain In session during all of the dog
days , as the work of constitution making at
Bismarck progresses slowly. Considerable
interest Is felt In tbo numerical order in
which the state of South Dakota will couio
into the union. The omnibus bill , adopted
by congress last February , providing for
statehood for North and South Dakou. Mon
tana nnd Washington territories , refers to
them In the order here named. If Presl-1
'dent ' Harrison's proclamation declaring their
statehood employ * the name phraseology us
this law , North Dakota will bo the thirty-
ninth and South Dakota the fortieth state.
This may not scorn to to a matter of much
importance , but it Is , as It iuvolvos the senior
ity and leugth of the first terms of the
United States senators for the two stains.
Ono of the gortlemcn whom nearly every
body in South Dakota believes will bo chosen
United States senator by the legislature this
winter , says the terms of the United States
senators for thn thirty-ninth state will bo
for ono und one-half years and three and a
halt years on the first election , whllo the
United Statessenators chosen the
- senators by legis
lature of the fortieth stnto will survo ns their
first tormit four und six years. Thus those
who aspire to be United States senators for
South Dakota are congratulating themselves
that President Harrison will follow the
language of the omnibus bill and name North
Dakota us the thirty-ninth state of the union
nnd not overlook the law in au effort to rcc-
ognizo South Dakota's work for statehood.
She has berne the brunt of tha battle from
first to last.
There is not a very great scramble for the
state nominations in South. Dakota. Ttiis is
duo to a general understanding us to whom
shall bo nominated for tha principal ofllces
on the republican ticket , which is the only
ono having uny prosptot at all for success.
Artlm * Mollottc , of VVutortown , Presi
dent Harrison's present governor of both the
Dakotas , will be nominated und elected by at.
least twenty thousand majority. Emigra
tion Commissioner Hagorty , of Aberdeen , is
likely to bo nominated lieutenant governor.
The two congressional nominations He between -
tween Colonel Charles T. McCoy , Of Aber
deen , who was a member of the original
South Dakota constitutional convention and
who has buen a member of the national com
mittee nnd a recognized leader of the party
for many years , Hon. John II. Gallhle ,
of Yunkton , who was also a member of the
original constitutional convention nnd who
is u hustler , ana the present elective con
gressional delegate , Gcurge C. Matthews , of
Only three names are overheard in con
nection with the United States senutorship.
They are Judge O. J. Edgerton , of Mitchell ,
who was president of the lost constitutional
convention , and is the presiding oftlcer of tno
convention in session here ; Judge Gideon D.
Moody , of Dcndwood , who was a member of
of the original constitutional convention , and
who has rendered incalculable service for
the division of Dakota and statehood , nnd
ox-congressional delegate Frank Poitlgrow ,
of Sioux Falls , who has been a lighter in the
front ranks for division and statehood since
the inclploncy of the movement. Messrs.
Edgerton and Moody have the prestige of
having been elected United States senators
by the Huron state legislature , Mr. Pettl-
grew has the advantage of having made ono
of the most satisfactory and effective dele
gates Dakota over sent to congress and
with having done more than nny man in
South Dakoia for the territory's develop
ment. Ho is Just entering the prime of lir < > ,
Is a thorough statosmnn , familiar with the
legislative proceedings of the territory
mid of congress , and ho will take heed at
Washington like nn experienced senator. Ho
has assisted with his own capital und that
which ho has secured in the cast so many
cities and towns In Dakota that n sense of
gratltudo on the part of their citizens will
give him great strength , oven though the ad
vantages ho would have In Washington at
the outset nro overlooked. Dakota is popu
lated with shrewd , warm blooded men ,
among whom PCttIRrow Is the foremost. Hem
m an unwavering and the staunuhost of
friends. Ho is the youngest of the trio.
Judge EdgcrUm served In the United
States sonata from Minnesota with great
credit. Ho Is ns largo and broad mentally ns
ho IH physically , nnd ho Is n magnificent
specimen of iluuihootl. Ho was u good soldier ,
is n trained statesman , well educated , well
read and well known ; a tine lawyer und
Jurist , a firm friend nnd thoroughly popular.
Judge Moody is a fearless , progressive
statesman. Ho was a colonel in the union
n nny during the late war , and like his coad-
Jucators , early came to Dakota. Ho was on
tiio'fodoral bench In South Dakota for many
years , proving himself nil able and clear
jurist , and sluco ho became a private citizen
has demonstrated his ability as an advocate.
' All of those thrco men would do great
credit In the United States senate to any
state , nnd the people of the country may bo
sure , oven at this early day. that South Da
kota will have as strong n delegation in con
gress this winter as can bo found from any
state In the union.

Thnt Kullroad Trust.
NEW YOIIK , July 13. [ Special Telegram
to THIS HEE. ] Concerning Air. McCook's
circular In regard to the formation of a huge
railroad trust , Mr. McCook yesterday after
noon said that the statement printed In
Chicago that certain railroads were already
committed to the scheme was Incorrect. The
original letter , ho said , had boon written
without consultation with railroad or other
ofllclals. Not a man or a road had been com
mitted to it. McCook hits rccoived letters
acknowledging llio receipt of tlio circular ,
but none of the writers have given the mat
ter suflleiont consideration to base an opinion
on It.
Mr. Macjrowan , McCoolt's ' partner , was
also seen , and In speaking of the matter said
thnt whllo what Mr. McOook hud stated was
exactly correct , nevertheless there was u
scheme in the air for the formation of a
series of trusts among the railroads , and It
embodied very iioarly the ideas , in Mr.
McCook's circular. It is said that McCook'a
scheme is backed by Drexel , Morgan & Co. ,
Hrown Uros. & Co. , and Kidder , Poaboily &
Co. , three of the largest batuclnt : houses in
the country.
It Is lo'irnod from a banker of prominence
that most of the great roads in the west , in
cluding the Union Pacific , would favor such
a scheme , and that the Gould and Vanuer-
bllt Interests would look at It m the sumo
Railroad ofllcials , bankers < and railroad
lawyers agree that there is no likelihood of
oven an attempt being made to form a rail-
roatl trust. It is intimated that some stops
are necessary to remove the Chicago fc
Alton and the Burlington & Northern roads
from the position they now occupy , and thut
npioposltion hus boon inado to purunaso the
stock of bath companies and operate them
by u union committee. Another schema pro
posed is to follow out the plan under which
the Cleveland , Columbus. Cincinnati & In
dianapolis , the Cincinnati , Indianapolis , St.
Louis & Chicago and the Ualro & Vlnconnos
roads wcro consolidated , und form the rail
ways of the country into four great systems ,
the stocks of the old companies to bo can
celled and their Individuality destroyed.
Mnnncor Mollon'n Threat.
CHICAGO , July 13. The lack of harmony In
the 1'itor-stato Commerce Hallway associa
tion was illustrated to-day at the mooting of
the general .managers of lines In the trnus-
Missouri division. A hot discussion ever
competitive traulo from the fur west brought
out n direct threat from General Man
ager Mellon , of the Union Pacific ,
to cut loose from tlio "Gentlemen's
agreement"anil do as ho individually pleased.
Tbo Union Pacific wuiitod the Denver & Hlo
Grande west of tha Itocky mountains forced
to conform to the rules of the association. It
was shown by the Denver Klo Grande
representative thnt they had only Joined the
combination on being assured exemption
from obedience to the rules beyond the
Koeldes. Manager Mellon thereupon claimed
similar privileges for the Union Pacific , and ,
being refused , made the wrathful threat of
withdrawing. Ho wus ridiculed by those
present. Nevertheless , theru wus an evi
dent fear that president Adams , the superior
ofilccr of Mr. Melton , is only walling for a
pretext to secede with the Union Pacific.
Some relief from this fading was obtained
when later tha Union Pacific unexpectedly
ncrood to u restoration of the passenger rate
from Colorado points to Chicago. Ten days'
notice of an advance from $ -0 ! to $30,05 , old
figures was given Immediately.
