D. O. Ives, frelfiit trafflo manager of the
Wabanh, a train has stepped Into the breach
and demonstrated that ho knows Omaha in
on the map and that lit road has a line
which gives it a haul from Omaha, to Buf
falo on the products of this state destined
to the eastern ports when he met the rate
of the Chicago A Alton on packing house
products, putting Omaha on the same basis
a Kansas City on export business.
Borne trouble has existed for a long time
nn the equalisation of rates on export pack
ing house products from Omaha to those
of Kansas City. January 1, all roads re
stored the rates tto the former basis of MH
rents to the Mississippi river and 36 cents
from the river to the coast, a total of 4SH
cents, as sfatnst a required rate of 83
cents. The Alton has Just put In a reduced
tariff from Kansas City on these export
packing house products and now Mr. Ives
announces that his road will put In the
same rate from Omaha, thus giving this
city an even break on this vast business.
Nearer the Gull.
The reason Kansas City has had the
better of Omaha on export business Is be
cause It la nearer to the gulf. Effective
December 81, oil eastern lines cancelled
their low rates on provisions, deciding to
Ignore the gulf competition.
This Is of course stronger on Kansas
City business than on Omaha and when
the east and west roads realized they were
getting no business they began to recede
from their former position and reduced
rates to old figures in an endeavor to re
gain what was lost. This was Just on Kan
sas City. Now comes Mr. Ives and gives
Omaha the advantage of the Kansas City
This gives the eastern lines an actual
advantage over the gulf roads from Omaha,
much more so than from Kansas City. The
rate Is 80 cents from Kansas City to gulf
and 33 cents from Omaha to gulf. From
Omaha to New Tork It will bo cents, a
reduction of Stt cents, all on the western ,
lines, from which it Is seen that Omaha ,
Is at a disadvantage of S cents on packing
house products exported via the gulf, whllo
It has on even break to the east.
Lines east of the Mississippi rtvei advance!
January 1 from 29 to 85 cents and the othr
reduction Is taken care of by the western

All Grata Rates Ukely to Be Rear
raaced at Sew York Meeting-.
Corn and other grain rates to the At
lantic) seaboard are in a fair way to be ad
justed at the meeting of the high officials
of the trunk lines, which will be held in
New Tork Thursday. An agreement was
reached whereby the rates should be 2H4
cents to Baltimore from Omaha and Kan
sas City with a 3H cents differential In
favor of the gulf ports. When It came
time to put these rates Into effect the lines
east of Chicago could not agree with the
lines west of Chicago as to a division of
the shrinkage In the rates, the eastern
lines wanting the lines west to stand all I
Since the first of the year the officials
of these roads have been wrangling In Chi
cago as to a division of this rate, and
being unable to come to any conclusion, the
matter has been carried to the higher offi
cials in New Tork with the idea that it
could be adjusted. There was no question
as to the rate that had been agreed upon;
the question was wholly a matter of
whether the lines east of Chicago would
stand their share of the shrinkage, or
whother the western lines would have to
stand the vbrunt of the whole question of
trying to' divert some of the grain from
the gulf ports.
In aplte of the advance In rates January
15, the Burlington loaded 255 cars In Ne
braska Tuesday for shipment. Since the
first of the year most of the corn and
grain from the Burlington has gone to the
gulf and more than halt of the grain has
D. Q, Ives lint stirred up the Chicago
grain men by the announcement of his rate
to the Atlantic svuboai'd. All roads were
working on a combination of the two locals
when Mr. Ives Announced that he would
put In the agreed rate single-handed. lie
then revoked that announcement and said
he would withhold that rate u.itll after the
New York meeting January 18. He filed
ills tariff with the Interstate Commerce
commission, however, so no matter what
action is taken in New York, the Wabash
rate is In effect, and If the roads come to
terms Mr. Ives will have u few days' start
on the others.
Chicago grain ti'u-n did not like the an
nouncement of Mr. Ives in the grain matter

"CUSTOM" THAT IS UNIQUE
Calling- of Goaa to Washington Estab
lishes Precedent In Such
Charles A. Goss has gone to Washing
ton. Dispatches from the capital say he
was called there by the prenldent, who
wished to confer with him before con
firming his nomination as successor to
United States District Attorney Baxter.
This information was contained in the dis
patch from Tho Bee's staff correspondent,
and also of the Lincoln Star's correspon
dent. The Star's man said:
The president lias asked Attorney Charles
A. Gobs of Omahu to call on, hint at once,
as Is customury In the case of a new ap
pointment for United States attorney.
It had not been known that this matter
of being called to Washington was a "cus
tom." Judge Baxter was asked if he had
been called there prior to his final ap
pointment and said:
"No, I did not go to Washington for
nearly a year after my appointment and I
don't know of any of my predecessors who
was called there. I can t Imagine why
Mr. Gobs was called there unless It was
to Impress him just what he is up against."
George E. Prltchett, who held the office
under President Cleveland, said when
asked If this custom was observed In his
"No. 1 was not called to Washington.
It strikes me as If this Is not a custom,
but rather a new departure. I never heard
of it being done before."
