ARBITERS FOR FREIGHT MEN
Board to Adjust the Canadian Pacific
Question Still Unknown ,
AMERICAN LINES CHOOSE THEIR MEMBER

Feature * of the .Mil I lorn
For the arbitration of the differential
question between the American transconti
nental lines and the Canadian 1'icllc with
regard to freight traffic , the u.tir.os of tlnee
arbiters wilt soon be announced The Ameri
can lines have already picked out their rep-
rcsenlatlvc , but his name will not ha an
nounced until the board Is complete. The
Canadian line has not yet named Its nrbltcr.
When It docs the two will select a third
member of the board of arbitration , and the
board will soon thereafter brgm to take
evidence in tbo dispute over the differential
now enjoyed by the Canadian Paclllc.
There bas been some criticism ot the
American freight men wbo tuut In Denver
last week and agreed to arbitrate thulr
trainc differences with the CanaJInii Pacific.
The criticism cotnus principally fiom '
passenger men of American lines , .
met In Chicago with the Inter- |
elate Commerce commission a short time
and declared that the question of continued
enjoyment of the 10 per cent differential by
their Canadian competitor was not a proper
subject for arbitration and positively re
fused to listen to all talk touurd an agree
ment alonj ; that line. Those who criticise
the freight men for taking a dlffcicnt stand
Bay that the differential principle Is the Bamu
when applied to freight and passenger traf
fic. If the American lines were right In re
fusing to submit to arbitration , they argue ,
the question of aliening the Canadian Pa
cific a differential on passenger business ,
on the ground that an alien corporation pay
ing no taxes to thla country should not en
joy hpeclal privileges over American roads
on American traffic , for ths inmc reason It
would seem that they should have refused
to arbitrate the question of differential rates
on freight traffic.
The freight men , on tbo other hand , say
that their dispute with the troublesome
Canadian line it entirely different from
the differences of the passenger men , and
Is capable of being settled In a different
manner. One of ttiem who attended the
Denver meeting said to The Bee : "The
criticism Is unfair because the freight dif
ferences and tho. passenger differences are
entirely dissimilar. In the case of the pas
senger dispute the American lines protest
against the 10 per cpnt differential enjoyed
by the Canadian Pacific , a strong line. In
tlio freight dispute the case Is different.
The American lines have not so strong a
complaint against the Canadian line , which
is handling Its freight by a wnter and rail
route. In this case the question of whether
the Canadian Pacific should bo allowed a
differential of 10 per cent on freight origi
nating and terminating In the United States
appears ito bo a fair question for arbitra
"Do you think a settlement will be
reached by arbitration ? "
"I rather think so. The fact that the
parties who differ have agreed to submit
the question to a board of arbitration Indi
cates a willingness to settle these differences
in this way. They have progressed this far
nil right , and I 'think ' will reach a final set

John I | . Webster
, vice president and gen
eral manager of the Omaha Bridge and
Terminal railway. Is In the east. Ho has
been there for several days , and Is not ex
pected borne for about n week. It Is be
lieved that his visit Is In reference to the
entrance of the Chicago Great Western Into
Omaha over the tracks of the Bridge and
The coming of the new line received ad
ditional confirmation on Monday afternoon
by the recording of a property transfer In
Council Bluffs covering laud desired by the
Great Western for terminal facilities. The
transfer Is not made out to the railway
company , but to an Individual who Is known
to represent the corporation.
There has been quite great deal of dis
cussion In local railroad circles recently
about the entrance of the Great Western ,
and those who arq In a position to know now
accept the coming of the enterprising line
ns an assured fact. Just how Hie new
comer will be received Is a matter of sorno
conjecture , but on account of Its well known
independence it Is not thought the other
railroads will very cordially welcome it.
In Kansas City the other lines do not af-
flllato with the Great Western to any great
extent , and from expressions heard here
things are not likely to bo much different
\vhon the new line begins running Its trains
Into Omaha next year.

Omaha passenger men look for favorable
action on the part of lines east of Chicago
toward reduced rates to the Transmlsslsslppl
Exposition In about ten days or two weeks.
Letters have been addressed to the general
passenger agents of lines outside of the
territory of the Western Passenger associa
tion not only by Manager Babcock of the
exposition's Department of Transportation ,
but also by the general passenger agents of
Omaha , asking the co-operation of the out-
Bide lines on reduced rates. It Is thought
by th a passenger men here that about ten
days must bo allowed for action on those
A rate of one faro plus $2 for the round
trip to Omaha on Tuesday of every week
is what the Omaha passenger men expect
to bo granted by the lines outside of their
association. These rates , It Is thought , will
be put In by the lines south of St. Louis
to the Gulf of Mexico , east of Chicago as
are filled as never before. From Estes
Park , Colorado Springs , Mnnltou and
nienwood comes news that the season
la unpreci'denttdly successful , Tlio
IJurllngton has done and Is still doing
n blc share of the Colorado travel.

Traveling Passenger Agent McNutt of the
"Knty" road Is In town. He says three or
four largo excursions to the exposition from
points j on that line are In sight for Septem
ber | nnd October.
The Texas & Pacific quartet , composed of
four I colored railroad employes of Texas ,
who \ enjoy some fame ns melody warblers ,
arrived hero this morning to sing at the
exhibit of the Rock Island railroad at the
exposition , They will Rtvo n concert once
ix day during the remainder of the exposi
, Excursion Agent Gay of the Raymond-
Whltconjb excursion .company Is In the city
with a party of Hostonlans , who will spend
four da > s at the exposition. This Is the
second party Mr. Gay has brought to the
uxposltlon. Between the two trips he bas
taken a party of Now England travelers to
Alaska and back.
All of the lines entering Omaha did n
big business on the trains reaching here
on Tuesday morning. Although Borne Hues
In the Western Passenger association neg
atived the proposition to put In a rate ot
ono fare for the round trip for Cody day
hero j It would appear that the amount of
travel | attracted by the wild west show Is
such aa to justify such a reduced rate.
"Our advices as regards crops along the
lines ] of our system arc very good , " says
President Purdy of the Rock Island. "I do
not think this hot spell will damage corn
to any extent , on account of there being BO
much rain prior to It. There Is a rather
free movement of grain , but I do not think It
Is so largo as at this time last year. Bus
iness Is keeping up remarkably well , es
pecially In merchandise , which Is going
both wnyu freely. "
Business on the Burlington system this
mpnth has been very satisfactory. During
the ilrst part of the month the grain move
ment was very light , but has been be
yond anticipation the last ten days. During
this period about G50 cam have been loaded
dally , which ls but slightly less than In
the same period a year ago. The volume
of tralllo Is about 3,500 cars per day. There
are twenty-seven working days In the cur
rent month and the total loading will ap
proximate SS.OOO cars , against 9S,17C cars In
August , 1897.
Someone In the Pullman company evi
dently thinks that the exorbitant rntes nnd
enormous travel In the company's cars this
st-aEon are not sufficient to enrich the com
pany fast enough , so additional rates are
tacked on when the travelers will stand It.
Dr. Hall of Minneapolis complains to The
Bee that his wife purchased a sleeping car
ticket from there to Omaha over the Minne
apolis & St. Louis and Rock Island rail

Lieutenant Moore Shows Signs of His Rough
Experience in Cuba ,
HOW COLONEL WIKOFF WAS KILLED

nt the KlKltt Twenty-
Second Una 1IUN > - Time.
Lieutenant T. W. Moore of Company O ,
Twenty-second United States Infantry , has
retained to Omaha from his campaign In
Cuba. Ills regiment , with the eighth regi
ment , wcro the first troops to land on
Cuban soil , and the lieutenant was In the
battle of El Caney. Ho afterwards had
an attack of the fever which Is prevalent
on the island at this time of the year and
returned with his regiment to Montauk
Point about the middle of the mouth. Ho
has had a couple of attacks of the fever
since his return to this country and his
emaciated appearance is evidence of the
slcgo ho has passed through sluce leaving
Fort Crook In June.
"All of the Twenty-second , " said the lieu
tenant , "were brought away from Santiago
on the transport Mobile , about which thcro
has been a large amount of misrepresenta
tion In the columns of the press. It Is true
that many of our soldiers were taken sick
en route to these shores , but they would
have been sick had * they remained In Cuba.
We left none of our men In the hospitals at
Santiago. Kvcry man who waa alive was
brought back. Those who wcro apparently
well when wo left Cuba undoubtedly had
the fever In their system , and the change of
climate Incident to the removal brought it j
out. Some of them showed no signs of |
sickness until they reached Camp WikofE.
The boys seemed to be In good spirits. I
overheard one of them remark on ship
board , after ho came down with fever , 'that
It was an American fever , anyway. '
"It Is remarkable how well the soldiers
stood the fire at El Caney. It must be
understood that about 00 per cent of the
troops were never under fire before. The
same Is true of the officers. Young boys
just out of West Point stood up on the
firing line directing their companies with a
coolness that could hardly be credited by
one who did not sec them , while the troops
worked with their officers with the skill of
How Colonel WlkofT Died.
"There have been many Inquiries as to
the mancr of the death of Colonel Wlkotf
, of the Twenty-second. Before our trans
port reached Santiago he received word that
he was to take command of a brigade and
we saw llttlo of him after we landed. Ho
was at the front with his staff. He had
stepped out on the line once to
look over the field and started
to do BO again. Ills staff officers
cautioned him that It was dangerous and
that ho would surely be killed. But the
soldierly Instinct was too strong and tbo
colonel could not content himself hearing
firing without knowing something about
where It was and what was going on. Ho
went out a second time and almost instantly
ho was seen to fall. His staff officers went
out and rescued him , but he passed away
within a few moments. When wo marched
back to camp the next day his grave was
pointed out to us , but wo were too tired
after our long vigils and hard fighting to
take more than a passing notice of it.
"Tho day Cervcra's fleet was destroyed
we had many experiences. Like any largo
body of men , without any direct commu
nication , wo hcrnl countless rumors. The
first report wo received was that Cervcra's
fleet bad escaped and had given the Oregon
hell. Wo did not permit this report to
reach the troops , although few of the officers
believed it to be true. About the middle of
the afternoon wo heard the true story of
the destruction of the fleet and It lost no
time In being circulated among the men.
The only band wo had nt that time was
the Eighth Infantry organization , all the
others having been used In carrying litters.
This band assembled and played the Star
Spangled Banner and the tired and fever
ish soldiers stood with uncovered heads and
with tears In their eyes. Then wo had the
experience of our soldiers knocking the hats
off the heads of the Cubans to teach them
to uncover when the national air was
played , a lesson that needed no repeating.
Liter , when the solemnity of the occasion
wore away , the band regaled the troops
with such airs as 'O , Give Us a Drink , Bar
Volunteer * Flwrlit Well.
"The Second Massachusetts was the only
regiment of volunteers brigaded with the
Twenty-second , and they behaved them
selves well. They were armed with the
Springfield rifle , and every time they fired
the binoko would expose them to the enemy
with frightful results , and they were or
dered to cease firing. They lay there In
the open field with such shelter as they
could Improvise , with the enemy's bullets
flying all around them , but unable to lire In
return. It was a trying position for any
troops , especially for volunteers. After the
battle they lost no time in securing Krag-
Jorcenscns from the dead and wounded
among the regulars. They were a good lot
of fellows , too. While the people In all
parts of the country wcro sending all kinds
of delicacies to the volunteers , no one
seemed to think of the regulars. The Mas
sachusetts boys gave us several crates of
eggs which bad been sent to them , and
Borao ono In New York Interested himself
sufficiently to send us a carload of melons.
You ought to have seen the boys get into
connection with that fruit when it was
placed before them.
"Cuba Is a beautiful country. The scenery
in and around Santiago Is unsurpassed.
The possibilities for development of that
section of the Island I believe to bo beyond '
computation. Of course It Is now a barren
waste. It had really never recovered from
the ten years' war for Independence , and
outside of the towns ( here were few signs
of habitation , and vegetation was wild and

Walker In AYruiiK *
The police are naturally taking little
stock In Conductor Walker's Identification
of J. S. Klrby , under arrest nt the central
. station charged with being one of the two
j I men who held up the conductor nnd motor-
| 'nan of a Hanscom park car at the termi
nus of the line Thursday night last. They
ballevo It U a case of mistaken Identity ,
as the arrest was made by Walker "without
the aid or consent" of any detective on the
Omaha force. This very Irregular way of
arresting criminals can hardly bo expected
to obtain official favor. .
Two nomen who board at the same house
with Klrby Informed the police that on the
night of the robbery Klrby was at the house
until long after midnight. It was at mid
night that the car was held up.
T. C. Carr , who was a passenger on the
car nt the time ot the robbery , was shown
Klrby and he is positive In his statement
that Klrby In no wise resembles the taller
ot the two robbers.
Thomas Edna , Klrby's roommate , who was
so positive yesterday that Kirby was not at
i homo on Thursday night , changed his mind
I about It and now asserts that Kirby was at
homo on that night.
Conductor Walker still persists he Is right
in his man. He says Klrby's height and
voice and general appearance Is fixed indel
ibly on his mind. The police are still Inves
tigating this holdup and the bold one of
Saturday night , but thus far their Investiga
