NEW YORK, Oct. 27.-E. H. Harrlman,
president of the Union Pacific and Southern
Pacific railroads, today discussed railway
affairs as follows:
I think that we are running Into an era
of competitive railroad building, Just as
wc have had an era of competitive buying.
The Union Pacific is ready. It is In the
beHt position of any of them, and the Union
fuel no does not fear nor does it care.
He added that the reported suits between
the Union Pacific and the Chicago, Bur
lington & Quincy Railway company over
a right-of-way In the North Platte country
were not an Indication of an outbreak of
hostilities between the Harrlman and the
Hill interests. "We are building a line in
the North Platte country," he said. "That
Is, we have started to build an old line
projected some time ago. They tried to
stop us and we enjoined them. It is a
Transportation la Orient.
Speaking of his recent trip to Japan and
China, Mr. Harrlman aald:
Japan is getting railroads and going
ahead to put them In shape to bring about
further development. The money that has
been collected from the people is being used
for their benefit.
Th Japanese are ambitious and 'besides
their railroad building thev Are to in a- to
develop transportation by water, and we
will have to co-opeiate with them or com
pete with them. I think we had better co
operate. They are guitig to get their share

which helps its producers. The other class
takes awty from and hinder Its producers,
and all the oilier countries are still in this
class. The little I saw In China, however,
convinced me that that country Is Koing to
open itself up as Jnpun has already d me.
China la already developing the railroad
lilies it has and will have nine. The Chi
netw are now using their railroads Instead
of tearing them down. Corea will have
to be recrcanlred and this will be done
hy the J-ipanese. This means a future
for that country, too.
No Serious Friction flays Hill.
James J. Hill, president of the Northern
Securities company, when asked for his
opinion on the approach of an era of com
petitive railway building, he said:
"That view of the situation has not held
itself on me." He said that the suits over
a right-of-way in the North Platte country
were unlikely io cause serious friction be
tween the rival systems.

WASHINGTON, Oct 27.-U Is the un
derstanding that the efforts at treaty mak
ing between the United States and China
will await the action of congress In the
matter of amending the Chinese exclusion
act. in accordance with an expected rec
ommendation of President Roosevelt in hi
next annual message. So far there ha
been utter failure on the part of the two
governments to negotiate a treaty. Soon
after China brought the treaty of 1894 to an
end December I it presented th draft of
a new treaty to the Stat department. Tills
waa turned over to the Department of
Commerce and Labor, which has jurisdic
tion of immigration matters. When this
department concluded with the treaty it
was returned to the State department for
transmission to China. China utterly re
jected the Instrument In Us modified form.
Since that time no further eteps have been
taken in the matter, although the under
standing here is that China la preparing a
That much has been done to lessen the
rigor of the exclusion act in accordance
with the expressed wishe of President
Roosevelt la manifest by the Increased
number of Chinese who are coming into
the Vnltad State The records show that
In September 283 Chinese were admitted
and but eleven rejected. In September of
last year the number admitted was 124 ana
the rejections eighty-five. Thl. U I said,
is the result of lessening to tension at
the porta of entry.
Inspectors More Loalent.
Since the executive order was Issued in
spectors charged with enforcing the Chi
nese exclusion law give great weight to
what a Chinaman saya in making hi de
mand for admission. It is decidedly touch
easier to satisfy the Inspector that a Chi
naman is a "merchant" or does not belong
to the excluded class than it was pre
viously. A recent modification of the regulation
make, It la declared, an absolute breach
in the exclusion wall. The regulation in
question required before it wa modified a
bond of $500 to be furnished by the trans
portation company for every Chinaman in
transit through the country and no laborer
would be allowed In transit. Thl bond
has been entirely done away with. Thl
fact, taken In connection with th ease
with which a laborer can now persuade aa
Inspector that he is a "merchant" and only
desires to pas through, constitutes th
breach in th wall. Once in th country
"in transit" It is an easy matter to get off
the train at any desired point and remain.
This modification of the regulation in
favor of the Chinese has not a yet become
generally understood. When It is, official
look for an influx of Chinese "in transit."
