RICH ON MERGER DECISION
Baji it Will Not Acply to Union Pacifio
and Bonthern Pacific.
BELIEVES IN CONSOLIDATION OF ROADS
Argaea that I,ower Hates Will Resalt
from Centralisation of
meat and Cqnft Redac
tion of Espeneee.
"The decision In the case of the Northern
Securities company will, In my Judgment,
have no effect upon the relation! existing
between the Union and Southern raclflc,"
Mid Edson Rich, associate counsel for the
Union raclflc. Mr. Rich doea not belleTe
In the apprehension fcateied by certain
magnates interested In the Northern Se
curities company that this decision will
have the far-reaching effect of dissolving
or disturbing every concern doing an Inter
"Only where there la an actual consolida
tion or merger can this decision be ap
plied," continued Mr. Rich. "Between the
Union Pacific and Southern Pacific there
Is no conservation; there is no positive
community of interest In the sense In
which that phrase has come to be generally
lined In the railroad world. Some stock
holders of the Union Pacific are stockhold
ers of the Southern Pacific, but the man
agements are separate and distinct, as are
the corporations, and neither Is the holding
company of tho other. I see, therefore, no
chance for this decision to apply to these
companies, or for that matter, to other
companies similarly related.
Objrct of the Snlt.
"The primary object of the suit out of
which this deelBlon has grown was to
prevent the consolidation of the Northern
Pacific, Great Northern and Burlington
and stop IJI11 and his associates from tak
ing over the stock of the Burlington all
under one management and corporation,
and the Immediate effect will be to ahut
off the acquisition by the Northern Securi
ties company of the Burlington. Aa for the
Northern Pacific and Great Northern they
were practically consolidated before this
concern was organized. The Northern
Securities company, therefore, was simply
organized as a holding company. Tet I see
no reason for not allowing Hill to take
over the Burlington since the latter Is not
a direct competitor or a parallel with
either of his northern roads. The general
purpose of this kind of law is to prevent
the consolidation of two or more parallel
and competing lines, since it Is generally
recognized of course that the original pur
pope of consolHatlon Is to shut off com
petition. But there certainly could be no
objection to all three of these companies
being owned by the same Individuals so
long as they were operated under separata
managements, as Is the case largely with
the Southern and Union Pacific.
May Retard Consolidation.
"This decision would seem to contradict
the theory that all conditions point to an
early consolidation of the great railroads of
the country under one or two managements.
If the decision stands It certainly will have
the effect of retarding such a condition of
affair. For my part I cannot see anything
wrong in the pooling of railroad manage
ments under one or two general heads. Aa
a nation we are proceeding toward an era
of centralization. This la inevitable; it is
logical. I believe the time will come, and
that within a comparatively short period,
when the railroads of this country will be
operated under centralized managements,
and I can't see how It la going to be a bad
thing for tho people either. In the railroad
business, as in every other kind of bual
ness, centralization simply means retrench
ment. The more compact the organization
the loss expensive the operation of the en
terprlse. That is a patent fact which stands
to reason. Now the logical aequence of this
will be, or ought to be, a reduction instead
of an Increase In freight and passenger rates.
The courta have the power to enforce laws
, with regard to railroads' aa well aa any
' other clasa of enterprises, and they can
compel roads o cheapen rates In the same
ratio as they will have cheapened their op
Aa to Ilarllngttoc Affairs.
Asaea n ne tnougnt the alleged con
templated union of all the Burlington
headquarters would be deterred by this
recent merger decision, Mr. Rich replied
In the negative.
"If Mr. Hill can make one man do what
three are now doing, have one headquarters,
aay In Chicago or St. Paul, whereas he now
has several, I don't see 'why he would not
do It. That la the general tendency," eald
Mr. Rich, "of tho railroad business. Take
the case of Erastus Young, general auditor
of the Union Pacific, Southern Pacific, Pa
cifla Mall, Oregon Short line, Oregon Rail
way ft Navigation company five companies.
He takes the place of about three high
pncea men ana la holding the greatest
audltor'a position in the United States
railroad world. Now It la Just such moves
as this that I say can be made elements
of strength In railroad managemcnta and
of benefit to the patrons In the matter of
VILL REAPPOINT J. H. ADAMS
City Attorney' Connell, If Re-Elected,
Will Hare His Present Assistant
at His Side.
City Attorney Connell announced yester
day morning that if reelected to his present
office he will reappoint James H. Adama aa
assistance rlty attorney. Mr. Connell, who
i candidate for re-election on the re
publican ticket said:
Heretofore the mayor has had absolute
control in the naming of all city officers
ho were not, elected. Now that the charter
has been amended the exclusive right of
ppointlng the (assistant city attorney is
given to the city attorney, but I should aay
the appointment must be confirmed by the
council. I think it is fair that the public
should know In advance what la proposed
to be done in the appointing of an assistant
attorney, and I stand ready to proclaim
my position In regard to the matter If
lected. No one up to the present time,
has approached me In any way regarding
the appointment of any particular person.
Acting on my own Judgement and having
positive convictions aa to the most capable
and competent man, In case of my election,
the appointee will be Mr. Adama.
It la admitted by all familiar with his
work that he has accomplished great re
sults. He originated and successfully pre
sented the plea of estoppal against the non
resident loan companies, which had pur
chased a large amount of Omaha property
on foreclosure sales, and has secured a final
decision from the supreme court that in all
of such cases where the purchaser In the
foreclosure sale had deducted from the ap
praised value of the property the taxes and
assessment standing against the same the
purchaser was forever estopped from set
ting up the claim that the taxea and assess
ments did not lie against the property. In
this regard alone he haa saved the city of
Omaha $250,000. In addition to that he haa
sustained all special assessment equaliza
tions which have been made subsequent to
1897, and It was through his efforts that
the legislature passed the - curative bill,
making It possible to' recover $500,000 in
apeclal taxea, even though many of them

SOLDIERS AT RIFLE PRACTICE
Twenty-Second Infantry Will Pat la
Three Months at Wlai
Captain Kreps of the Twenty-second In
fantry went to Winnebago agency last night
to make preliminary arrangements for the
target practice which the Twenty-second
la to hav there during June, July and
August. The practice for the men will
extend over etz weeks and only on bat
talion will be sent at a time. A practice
march will be made from Fort Crook to the
range on the agency and back again and at
all tlmea during the six weeks conditions
will be made as similar to Held conditions
as la possible.
The range on the agency la not all that
might be desired, but It Is hoped that the
land may be leased for five years and that
a more permanent range may be made there.
The department failed in the last sesaion of
congresa to secure money for the purpose
of improving the range at the agency and
at Fort Leavenworth. At the latter place
the prlnclplal expense In the creation of an
elegant range was the grading,, and - the
officers of the department have secured
one hundred corvlcts to do the work. In
so doing they expect to do almost all that
the parsimony of congress would have kept
tbem from. On the agency It Is somewhat
different and $1,000 is aorely needed to
make the range an Ideal one.
