RATE WAR BEGINS IN EARNEST
Burlington and Iliinoii Central Unite to
Control Corn Traffic.
OMAHA THE STORM CENTER AT PRESENT
rrratlge of the Local Market to Be
1'Bbeld bj Stroec Combination
that Can Handle All
Ths grain tariff proposition ta now
takfn on all the aspects of a rate war.
Iteijardlrsa of the name which may be
given the situation by the railroads them
selves, it Is evident that the situation has
now reached that acute stage where rate
mahlns Is no longer a mere matter of ad
JubUug dlServntlals. It is a nght to get
the business and Omaha seems to hold the
key to the situation. Eastern roods are-
. trying to pull the business away from
Omaha, and the wtstern lines with south'
ern connections are striving just as hard
- to make Omaha the principal gate through
which corn la to be hauled to tidewater.
A now factor entered the fight
. when the Burlington and Illinois Central
Joined lssuea and announced a rate of 13V
cents from Omaha to New Orleans. The
routing will be over the Burlington via
Monmouth, 111., to Centralis, where the
gruin will be turned over to the Illinois
Central for the haul to the gulf. To still
. farther complicate matters, the Illinois
Central has put in a rate of 12 cents to
Now Orleans from all points in Illinois
excepting Chicago. Why Chicago Is elim
inated is not apparent, but It does not
share in the proposition.
After the Duslness.
A Burlington man said: "The eastern
lines have been spoiling for a rale war
nr.d this Is evidently a move to convince
them that the gulf lines can give them all
the excitement they waiK when It comes
to the matter of rates. The Hurllngton and
the Illinois Central have joined Lssuea to
gft all the buslneta there is. There are no
large contracts just now that I know of,
but there Is plenty of business and there
is an enormous amount of corn to be moved
to tidewater. The southern lines are going
have their share of it. Omaha holds tha
fc7 to the situation. Owing to the fact
lfcat Omaha ran make more and shorter
connections for the gulf than Kanxus City,
it I the natural shipping point uud mutu
retain Its prestige as one of the p.-lmliml
gateways for the movement of grain trv
tended for export.
'The gulf route means a longer ocean
haul, but the rail haul by the shortest
route from O-naha I only hslf what It is
to the Atlantic senlioard. For this rea
son Omaha Is In this nght to flay. It
rates ran gi ilio tnmliirm Omaha is going
to bit the p'i'trlpiil t tipping point.
Ii-allar Kai tor of Case.
"A unl.juti factor has bcii interrd Into
tbe fight by srnne of the roads whloh are
aware that they ranot get any of tha busi
ness owing to their awkward connections.
These roada are complicating the situation
by making rates which the more favored
lines must meet. !t Is a proposition of
this kind which forced the Burlington and
the Illinois Central to pool Issues for their
own protection at Chicago. The eastern
lines were not looking for it, because they
felt that the Burlington preferred to stay
out of the controversy In order to get the
haul to Chicago If fair and equitable rates
were maintained. While differentials have
been equalized revenues have been reduced,
and the Burlington is forced into the fight
for this reason." . .

Robert Kearny Is Captured.
ST. JOSEPH. Mo.. Jan. 28 Robert- 8.
Kearny of the Kearny Livery company of
this city has been a rr rated in New Orleans
and will be brought back for trial on the
chnrge of highway robbery. Kearny w.t
Indicted lt May for robbing a atorkmitn
from whom he id purchssed horses. He
was areraled, gave bond aud disappeared,
leaving a wife. .
A unique reason Is advanced by those on
the Inside for the apparent delay on the
part of the Union Tactile in appointing a
general superintendent to succeed J. M.
Oruber. This is based on the belief that
in resigning frota the service of the com
pany Mr. Oruber has complicated matters
and broken up a slate which had ' been
planned by the officials of the Harrlman
lines. They believe that while Mr. Gruber
has undoubtedly taken tho right step from a
pecuniary standpoint, he 'has destroyed his
chances of a promotion which was bound
to come on the Union Pacific.
"In one sense, I think Oruber made a
mistake," sold a Union Paclnc official.
"There is no doubl that E. K. Calvin of
the Oregon Railway and Navigation com
pany is slated for the position of general
manager to fill the vacancy on the South
ern Pacific. I am also satisfied from what
other officials nave told me that Mr. Oru
ber was slated to take Mr. Calvin's place
when the change Is made. By leaving the
company Mr. Oruber has complicated mat
ters. There are now two vacancies that
must be filled by big men.
"The office will not be abolished. It is
too much work for Mr. Mohler to take
care of. I would not be surprised to have
Mr. Mohler Introduce the new general sup
erintendent at the dinner to be given at
the Omaha club on Monday evening. I
think he will do it. I feel confident that
the next general superintendent of the
Union Pacific will be u guest of General
Manager Mohler at that banuuet."
Sfw Headquarters Building.
A rumor is again being circulated to the
effect that the Union Pacific has plans
drawn fur a new building to bemused for
general offices of the company. According
to the report, the plans present arrange
ments for a fire-proof skyscraper to be
erected at the corner of Thirteenth and
Harney streets'.' Another rumor Is to the
effect that the proposed building is to be
erected on the property east of the present
location. When axked regarding the report,
A. L. Mohler said:
. "There Is nothing, in the story." He
would not discuss' the matter further than
to say that there Is no intention at present
of putting up a new building. A Union
Pacific man who Is In touch with the en
gineering department said: ' -
"These stories, are started .occaaionally
by real estate boomers and they cause us
a great deal of annoyance. I could name
tho authors, but all of them you will find
have property that they want to sell. They
are contlnally putting up buildings on puper
for the Union Pacific und moving our de
pots or erecting new ones In and about
Gmuha. When the Union Pacific is ready
to build the information will come from
the Union Pacific headquarters and not
from the outside, and the papers of Omaha
will know of It as soon as any one, and
perhaps a trifle sooner.
"There Is nothing in the story now. If
there were any plans drawn for such a
building I would know of it. The Union
Pacific will huye to build. It Is cramped
for room, but I think when It does build
it will put up a building adjacent to the
one It now occupies and will use some of
this structure, although a part of the
building will be torn down. Anything said
now, however, about building is premature.
It Is not even talked, excepting in the most
from five to ten; by Wilson, by request,
allowing threshers to carry Insurance for
the benefit of their patrons in lieu of
giving bond for damages.
Much of the house session was taken up
In listening to the address by Dr. Ramsey
of the bureau 'of animal industry on the
needs of cattle dipping In the state. He
said the report of inspectors In the field
showed that 00 per cent of the cattle herds
between the Missouri aud James rivers
were affected by scabies, and , that the
disease extended to the state line. lie
urged radical measures with dipping un

that no cattle could be chipped out of

So'uth Dakota fceuate Has Warm
Debate Over Election of
PIERRE, 8. D., Jan. 28. (Special Tele
gram.) The senate today started the fire
works for the first time In the sesalon over
the resolution memorializing congress for
the election of United States senators by
popular vote which was defeated on com
mittee report by a vote of 35 to 7. The
elections committee had reported unfav
orably and Toy, moved the adoption of
the report. Cook moved aa a substitute
that the reslutlnn be sent to tho com
mittee on federal relations.' This was de
Rice took up the resolution declaring that
the people were better able to Judge who
they wanted for senators than was the
legislature and that the present system
led to corruption in the selection of sena
tors. Abel did not believe that the state
legislature gained anything by suggesting
amendments to the nutlonul constitution.
Toy opposed it as a populist measure.
Lawson opposed the resolution as some
thing which had no standing except in the
democratic state platform, and that he
had not been sent to the legislature to place
the seal of approval on such democratic
dectrino and ended, by eulogizing Senators
Allison and Kittredgc. On roll call, the
adverse report was adopted.
The senate passed the Stoddard bill re
quiring ownership of motor vehicles to
register and number them. The principal
new senate bills were by CasHill, providing
for farmers Instruction and allowing coun
ties to appropriate f-'uO for that purpose,
by Johnson, fixing ths exemption limit for
single persons at $160, and providing for
organisation and control of trust com
panies. In tha house the report on the rapltol
building bill was made a special order for
Tuesday next at t o'clock.
The joint resolution for a constitutional
amendment to allow counties to engage In
drainage work was passed.

Water of Elk Creek. Being; Diverted
for I'se of Deadwooil and Sam Mine. .
PIEDMONT, S. P., Jan. 28. (Special. )-
Ranchmen of Elk Creek are exercised over
the fact that Deadwood and the Sam mine
are to take the water from Elk creek for
the city and for mining purposes. The fine
ranches along the valley from Piedmont to
the Cheyenne river can 111 afford to lose
the great water privilege they have so long
depended upon. Something over twenty Ir
rigation ditches will have been built and
opeinled In vain if Deadwood wins out. A
large hum of money Is bring raised for the
purjHse of handling the matter legally.

Cattle men deny thJ reports sent out from
some parts of the state concerning the suf
