The recent destruction of the Western
Union Telegraph lines along the right-of-way
of the Pennsylvania railroad lias a
significance much deeper than aptnra on
the surface. The origin and progress of the
destructive war. the meaning of it and the
ant Interests Involved are detailed by s
staff correspondent of the Chicago Tribune
In part as follows:
The 'Western Union was not driven oft
the Pennsylvania right-of-way merely be
cause the railroad company preferred to
do business with the Postal Telegraph
company. The chopping down of poles and
the destruction of the wires were retali
atory acta pure and simple. The trouble
dates back to the determination of George
Gould to own his own railroad system be
tween the Atlantic and Pacific slopes. The
minute he succeeded In securing an en
trance Into Pittsburg which city hitherto
had been controlled exclusively by the
Pennsylvania railroad he antagonised that
great corporation, and thereupon began
the battle between the giants.
George Gould Is the controlling factor In
the Western Union Telegraph company,
and although that company had been In
peaceable possession of the Pennsylvania
right-of-way for fifty years or so, the rail
road company ordered It removed, as It
had a right to do under Its contract. This
was nothing more nor less than an at
tempt to punish Gould for seeking to
divide the enormous business passing
through and originating In the Smoky
City at the Junction of the Allegheny and
Fight Centers In lMttatrg.
Many Chicago people will be surprised to
learn that Pittsburg claims to be, and pos
sibly Is, the greatest freight center in the
world, counting shipments In both direc
tions. The'Pennsylvanla railroad for years
owned the Pittsburg city council, body
and breeches. It prevented any other rail
road from reaching that city, and at the
same time enjoyed extraordinary privt
leges. For many years the Pennsylvania rail
road has been unable to furnish facilities
enough io handle the enormous freight
traffic which passes through the city of
Pittsburg. The Pennsylvania interests
bought out the Baltimore & Ohio railroad,
largely, If not entirely, to prevent Gould
from having any share In this enormously
profitable Pittsburg business. There has
been one congestion after another in the
Pittsburg freight yards, and the Pennsyl
vania railroad, believing Itself master of
the situation, recently decided to spend the
extraordinary sum of 126.000,000 In Increas
ing Its facilities In the Pittsburg district.
Gould Starts the flattie.
George Gould owns and absolutely con
trols the Immense system Involving the net
work of railroads reaching from the Ohio
valley to the raciflc slope. Within that
territory he could dictate price, but hla
Wabash railroad system ended nowhere In
particular to the eastward, and It was ab
solutely essential to his position that he
should reach the Atlantic seaboard by an
independent line of his own. This he pro.
ceeded to do by securing control of the
Wheeling & Lake Erie railroad, which gave
him an outlet for the Wabash to Mingo
Junction, which Is only a Short distance
The sympathies of the people of Pitts
burg were with the Gould interests. They
realized that It waa not healthy for their
city In the long run to be under the abso
lute control of a single railroad corpora.
tlon, no matter how great, how liberal,
and how progressive. - Pittsburg has re
cently rescued Itself, temporarily at least,
from a life of civic debauchery, and ona
of the first results of this reform was an
ordinance granting entrance and rlght-of

If all goes well, the Wabash system will
be In Pittsburg for Its freight traffic, and
not lesa than six months later will be run
ning passenger trains from the southwest
to Pittsburg Itself.
Gets Line to Baltimore.
At the same time, when road building was
begun from Mingo Junction to Pittsburg,
Mr. Gould set about securing an independ
ent line to - the southeast so aa to reach
. tidewater at Baltimore. The old - Western
Maryland railroad waa practically owned by
the city of Baltimore. It had been built
aa a check upon the Baltimore & Ohio, and
when the latter road paaaed under control
of the Pennsylvania crowd the people of
: Baltimore naturally desired that their
western Maryland road should not go Into

Politics, which play such a part In the
police force of New York, are absent al
most entirely from the portce of London.
The commissioner 1 appointed practically
for life, which, in Clmminslnner Piper's
opinion, allows of the working out of re
forms n a slow, but systematic manner
without thought of a nearoy election that
would cause matters to be hurried.
The London police are very courteous,
younger than those In New York, well In
formed and Intelligent. They are appointed
after civil service examinations, but the
patrolmen are kept up to therr work lies In commissioner can select whomsoever he

Each driver Is examined as to his ability.
The merchants are not permitted to block
the sidewalks with goods as is the case In
New York, and the man on post must see to
this under penalty of being dropped from
the force. Heavy trucking, too, is not al
lowed between 10 o'clock and 4.
There is an esprit de corps among the
police of London that prevents any wide
spread corruption. If there is any bribe
taking or rascality among the officers their
fellow officers rind it out and report to the
commissioner. The offenders are quickly
gotten rid of without ceremony.
The London method of handling the traffic
Is now being tried at congested centers In
New York nnd thus far the results have
been most satisfactory. When the drivers
become used to the method there Is nu rea
son why there should be more confusion in
New York than In London. Municipal

quired the tidewater link In his great trans
continental chain. It needed only the West
ern Vlrglnls road and the connection of
that line with the Western Maryland by a
new line easily constructed across the Poto
Galveston to Baltimore.
Almost before the Pennsylvania Interests
knew what was being done they found
Oeorge Gould in possession of practically a
complete line, which, with the Missouri Pa
cific and Wabash as Its main trunk, was In
a position to ship freight from Galveston
to Baltimore, and at the same time, by con
trol of the Penver & Rio Grande, to dic
tate transcontinental freight ratea to the
Pennsylvania people, to the Vanderbllta, to
Hill, to Harrlman and to any other person
who chose to mix In the game.
George Gould has bought his railroads al
most outright that Is to say, he own
controlling Interest In each line, and Is not
dependent upon the whims or upon the good
nature of some Intangible and easily broken
syndicate. In this way he Is practically
Impregnable to direct assaults. He cannot
be bought out. and the more the stock of
his different railroads Is depressed the bet
ter It suits him. because he Is then enabled
to Increase his holding at reduced cost.
Attack ti Western I'nlon.
When Gould persuaded the people of
Pittsburg to permit him to dig hi way
through the smoke Into that city, and when
he began hla building preparations from
Mingo Junction, the Pennsylvania railroad
began to show Its teeth. George Gould Is
tho heaviest stockholder In the Western
Union Telegraph company, which ran ita
wires over the Pennsylvania railroad right-
Curiously enough, the contract between
the telegraph company and the railroad
practically was the only one of Its kind
which the Western Union company knows
of.. It waa an old contract, and required
the Western Union company to remove Its
poles and wires upon six months' notice
after the expiration of Its contract. The re
lations between the two great corporations
have been so cordial that the existence of
this clause in the contract actually had
been forgotten. In all other contracta be
tween the telegraph company and the rail
roads there are naturally provisions for the
termination of the contract under certain
conditions, but In no case Is the telegraph
company actually required to remove Ha
property Within a certain specified time.
It was a rrfhtter of surprise to the tele
graph offlctals. therefore, when a year ago
they were notified that their contract with
the Pennsylvania company would expire on
a Specified day. They took It as a matter of
course, and wrote the usual letter propos
ing a renewal of the contract on the same
old aatlsfactory term. Much to their sur
prise an answer was received from the
railroad company that It did not propose to
rtnew the contract with the Western Union
on any terms, and requiring the telegraph
eompanV to remove all It property from
the railroad right-of-way within six
Gonld Is Not Frightened.
It was a distinct threat from A. J. Cas
satt to George Gould. It waa intended and
was received as such. Gould declined to be
frightened out of hla railroad projects,
however, and went on building links and
buying link. His operations were naturally
hostile to the Pennsylvania, which had at
enormous expense purchased control of the
Baltimore 4 Ohio and tke Chesapeake &
In this extensive purchase the Vander-
bllts were important factors. They were
given a large block of stock in the Penn
sylvanla road on favorable terms snd be
came Joint purchasers with the Pennsyl
vanla of the Baltimore & Ohio and Chesa,
peake & .Ohio systems. The object was, of
course, to secure a community of Interests
between the eastern trunk lines, so aa to
concentrate all eastern traffic In the United
States in the hands of the Vanderbilt and
It waa an amaslng prospect, and the one
thing which stood In the way was George
Gould. He was much In the way, how
ever, and he had aome good men back of
him, too. John D. Rockefeller has made
more money in the Standard Oil company
than he could possibly spend on the Chi
cago university and similar educational
enterprises. He found an outlet for hi
surplus funds In railroad Investments. He
Is head over heels Into the Gould system
In the southwest. The result waa that
when the Pennsylvania railroad attacked
Gould It necessarily attacked Rockefeller,
nd there has been witnessed recently i
gigantic battle to death between the Penn
sylvanla and the Vanderbilts on one side
and George Gould and the powerful Rocke
feller on the other.
War on the Stock Market
It was only natural that the Gould Inter
eat should hit back at the Pennsylvania
when that road took the extraordinary step
not' only of ousting the Western Union
from Us right-of-way, but of actually de.
stroylng In a ruthless manner the property
of the telegraph company. Tho Pennsyl
vanla recently voted an additional 175.000,
000 worth of stock. That waa to be offered
to other stockholder at an agreed rate of
120, although at the time thl figure waa
proposed the market value of the stock
was much greater. This sum of ITS, 000, 900
was Intended to provide tor the work of
digging the tunnel under the Hudson liver
and building an enormously expensive un
derground terminal in the vicinity of
Herald square In New York. The Gould
Interests saw their chance and hammered
the life out of Pennsylvania's securities
until there was a drop from the neighbor
hood of ISO down to 130. the price fixed for
the subscription to the new issue. It waa
a critical time for the Pennsylvania road
because it needed the money and would
have suffered great loss of prestige if it
had failed to tost Ita new loan at the
designated time. The road1, great as it Is,
was forced to secure the service of an
Trace In Wall Street.
This Is the situation up to date in one of
the greatest railroad ware ever conducted
by the mere power of money. There has
been no rate cutting, but the loss of mil
lions upon millions In the value of securi
ties, and this loss was still going on until
yesterday afternoon. An agreement has
been reached, however, that there shall be
no more fighting on the atock market.
The Rockefellers are. In fact. Interested
in the new Pennsylvania loan to some ex
tent, and as Gould has secured his entrance
Into Pittsburg and Baltimore there is noth
ing much left for the Pennsylvania rond
to do but to spend ita money on Improve
ments and seek to get as much Pittsburg
business and general transcontinental
traffic as Its facilities will permit it to
handle. The clash of the financial groups
has been averted to a large extent, but the
fight haa been transferred Into the open,
and George Gould and A. J. Cassatt aca
now engaged In a battle to secure control
of the freight traffic from Chicago, St.
Louis, Kansas City and Cincinnati to the
Atlantic seaboard. It Is a clash of power
ful railroad interests, such as this country
has not seen for many a long day.
Co far as the Western Union Telegraph
company Is concerned, Its fight haa largely
been transferred to the courts. If the
Pennsylvania Railroad company was not
justified In destroying the telegraph com
pany's property It will have to pay for It.
That Is a mere matter -f money and
readily can be adjusted when the courts
make a final decision. The Pennsylvania's
action waa dictated by a desire to retaliate
upon Gould, and to that extent it was a
success, because in spite of the disclaimers
of the telegraph officials It Is evident their
service was seriously crippled by the sum
mary ejectment from tho Pennsylvania
right of way. The telegraph company has
a. fifty-year contract with the Baltimore &
Ohio and "that contract is renewable for
another period of fifty years, so there is
not likely to be any repetition of the attack
of the railroad company on the Western
Greater Battle to Come.
The next development will come when
Mr. Gould' new line goes into actual op
eration. He will not be Inclined to treat
the Pennsylvania any too tenderly. He
starts out with a tremendous advantage
anyway, because he built Into Pittsburg at
the urgent request of Andrew Carnegie,
and the Gould line to the seaboard, as
well as to the west. Is to be given every
pound of freight Carnegie's steel companies
In this way It will be seen all sorts of
gigantic interests have become Involved In
this spectacular fight. George Gould, the
largest Individual railroad owner today;
John D. Rockefeller, the Standard Oil
magnate, who once hung the Pennsyl
vania scalp to his belt, years ago; Andrew
Carnegie, the great Ironmaster and library
builder, and 11,000 stockholders of the West
ern Union company, are combined together
to resist the claims of the Pennsylvania
railroad, backed up by the Vanderbilt,
that the territory from Ohio to the At
lantic is sacred and not to be entered at
any cost by competing railroads.
The public gets out of all this a new line
of railroad, and If In the fullness of time a
great rate war breaks out between the two
contending parties, as Is entirely probable.
It will be the public who will be the gainer.
