The disruption of tlio Transcontinental
association Is a foregone conclusion for thrco
roads , the Ulo Orando Western , tbo Uroat
Nortliorn nnd tbo Ciumdlnn Pacific , liuvo
Blvoti notlco "that on January 1 tboy will
withdraw from the association and paddle
tholr own canoes. Hut tbls Is not nil. Not
withstanding tbo denial ( rota ofllclals nt
headquarters that thnro is nay intsunder-
ntandlng between the Union 1'ucillo und
Northern Pacific , tboro is a growing difference -
once ovur rate matters and freight tariffs
which prom.sos to Involve both roads In u
Tbo reasons nsslcnoi by the Canadian
Pacific for withdrawing from tbo associa
tion are tbo nctlon ot the Southern PacUlo In
holding tbo Canadian 1'aclllc in tbo anoma
lous position of charging doiccstlo shippers
higher rates from the Allan tic soabonrd tuun
the Southern 1'uulllo charges importers from
European porti through to the 1'acillu const ,
the fact that the other lines In tbo associa
tion have utterly demoralized tbo rates , both
freight and passenger business , and their
open admission that suoh is the case and tbo
association's inability to remedy matters.
Should the Northern Paciilc follow the ox-
nraplu of its neighbors and pull out , ( ram tbo
association nothing would bo ( eft for the
Union Pncillc but to follow suit unless It
would bo decided that the latter road could
keep Its California business distinct from Its
Tacoma , Portland and Scaulo business. But ,
this Is baldly possible as tbo business Is t > o
oloso between the points that it would ro-
qulro all the linesso of a passonKor agent to
bo able to draw the line of demarcation.
The Southern Pacific operating almost
wholly within tbo state of California exacts
from other roads an arbitrary which Is al
most cqunl to levying tribute for tbo use of
the Rtato as a hiahwuv over which other
roads may pass. Tlio Canadian t'acllio while
operating largely In the British Possessions
penetrates to California by the Shasta route ,
the Union Pacific by way of Portland. The
latter road is compelled to pay an arbitrary
amounting lo $18 on llrst cuss nml tlU.tr on
second class passage which to any the least is
excessive , wtille thoCdtindianPacilloiscom
pelled to pay a like arbitrary for the
benefit which accrues by roanon of Its oceu-
pntlou of California territory. .Things , however -
over will , it is thought. Do vastly different
nftor the 1st of January for tbo Canadian
Pnclllo undoubtedly means to cut the rnto
from northern points to California within n
dollar or two of tbo arbitrary , and as it Is
outside tbo association will simply say 10 tbo
Southern Pacific , "Now whlstlofor redress. "
Tbo Great , Northern , while situated somewhat -
what differently from the other roads men
tioned , Is nffrctcd in hko manner and was
forced to leave the association as a matter of
self protection , not particularly because of any
election It may have bud In tbo matter , but
simply as a uornlor rcssnrt.
In a 1'imHciiKcr U'ny.
Mr. E. I. , . 'Lomax , who has Just returned
from a four days meeting of tbo Transcon
tinental association , said yesterday in speak
ing of the passenger situation ; "Tuoro
Is a great , donl of unrest abroad among
passenger associations and tbo situ
ation begins to look ugly. I have
no unubt that tbo Transcontinental
is a thing of the past , and yet the roads re
maining may form a pool against tboso tbat
are nut , hut that Is hardly possible. Should
tbo Northern Pacific folio follow tbo course
of tbo Great Northern and Canadian Pacific
I proiumo the Union Pacific would bo com
pelled to do likewise , as a matter of self-
interest. Wo are not lonltine for trouble ,
but are compelled to bo on the safe side
when 1t docs overtake us. Individually I am
n firm advocate of tbo pool and 1 belloVe the
intorstnto commerce commission Is largely
of that mind. Wltn a pool the smaller or
differential roads got as much protection ns
the larger roads and thcro Is a great deal
more harmony existing than under the
present arrangement of forming roads In a
dlsttlct Into associations with equal powers.
"But tbn unrcit is notconllned alonolo the
Transcontinental association. Tbo Burling
ton has given notlco of Its withdrawal from
tbo Western Trafllo association , which
means tbat other roads will follow and tbo
collapse of the association made entirely
probable. So you see that a passenger
agent's Ufa is hardly a hanpy one , for I don't
know of a moro perplexing problem than
just this question of urbltrarlos which apply
In all flections of the country. The freight
question , to my mind , Is by no means as in-
trlcuto ns those problems of rates which the
passenger nu'ont Is called upon to daily un
tangle. I tiavo no doubt tbo frolgbt man
looks with supreme disdain upon tbo passen
ger man and his arbitrary when differentials
I have the Moor , but tboy are both dlflicult
nuts to crack. . AH summer the situation has
boon strained In passenger circles , and I
will bo glud when wo get out of the special
tourists' rates and b.iclt into legitimate
passenger buslnosi. "

Ciiiiililiiii on Wyoming Conl.
The prlco of Hook Springs coal has been
advanced U5 cents n ton at Cboyonno. mate-
Ine it cost tbo consumer tO.25 at Cboyonno ,
but tbo prlco bus not been increased at
Omaha yot. The Wyoming papers state
tbat the Increase In price there is duo 10 tbo
fact that the Union Pacific has scoured
control ot tbo entire output from Hook
Springs by giving the private mine owners
an advance of ! i5 cents n ton over the
prlco that was bolng paid by other
ngonta. This offer was readily accepted
and the Union Pacillo now has the monopoly
of the business. Many of tbo dealers wbo
liavo handled the coa't of the smaller com
panies at Rock Springs will have to go out
of business or break tbn combine. Thov are
reported to have formed a combination for
the latter purpose.

The machine is drawn bv nno span of

ordlntry street sweeping broom which
loosens up the dirt. This dirt is then drawn
through a suction tube and convoyed to u
