rot pronounced Itself upon any of tha
Issues before the old parties. It has been
concerned solely with thn primary work
of asserting Itself and such issues, as It 1

political questions or ure old questions pre

to understand that new force which will
grow even stronger than It Is at present,

The lulior paity has u striking policy of
economic reform, which la nothing less
than' stste socialism, or the nationalism
of the mcens producing all wealth. The
labor party ruthlessly pushes the question
of free trade aside, as of minor importance,
and demands the "ownership of the land
by the people." and the consequent eboll
tion of the "landlord rlnss."
Socialism Is not a iie-risny iiialiflratfnn

and Milwaukee to Form

NEW YORK, Feb. 10. vtpeclal Telcgnun)
It wus disclosed today that one ot the
most gigantic trutis-continental railroad
deals ever made is being formulated. It
means the consolidation of the Northern
Pucillc, Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul
and Great Northern and Burlington Into
two great Uans-contlnental lines. It also
means the shutting out of the llarrlman in
terests on the north Pacillc coast. It ulso
means a desperate light between the lour
lines ineiuioned and the Harrimun lines.
As outlined today by an authority of un
questioned integrity, tho situation Is as
The undertaking involves two separate
transactions. They have been In tho minds
of the promoters for several years. The
proposal means two of the greatest railroad
systems lu the world. The Great Nortlicrti
with Its 120,K).000 of iron ore and sale
rights to its own and Burlington stock
holders, amounting to J5o.C0P.000 more, will
cement these two roads Into one vast
double track system to the coast. The
Northern Pacific system, whose stock is
actually worth 800 on the basis of Its earn
ings, may easily devote $l00,000,0u towards
the purchase of the stock of the Chicago,
Mllwuuk.e & St. Paul, now extending to
the Pacillc coast, practically paralleling the
Northern Pacific. The Chicago, Milwaukee
& St. Paul will tind it more convenient at
points along the route to use the Northern
Pacific tracks. Indeed a conference already
has been held between officials to this end.
Details of the Plnn.
A railroad attorney, whose business
brings blm In touch with the financial end
of all these roads, declares that affairs
are so shaping that one can reach no
other conclusion, and he predicts within
two years at least or possibly sooner the
four roads mentioned will t hsve become
two great transcontinental lines by the
process worked out by James J. Hill.
The nttnrnev rierlnres his belief In the .
,mmil.m of this scheme be- I

roads concerned. It Is simply a matter
of working out the detail. As the first
move 'it Is understood that the Burlington
bonds guaranteed by the Northern Pacific
are to be called In and retired. In effect
the Northern Pncltic and the Chicago.
Milwaukee & St. Phu! will be merged and
the Grerft Northern and the Burlington
will be made one system. It is understood
fie Great Northern will absorb the Bur
llngton. while for a few years the Chicago,
Milwaukee St. Paul and the Northern
Pacific fvill work In conjunction, with the
Northern Pacific finally absorbing the St.
Paul road. These plans are outlined by
parties so rinse to J. J. Hill as to make
the storj' seem inspired.

Judge Glldersleeve in the Standard O!!
The decision Is favorable to the conten
tion made by Mr. Hadley In the Standard
Oil case. The opinion, written by Justice
Sanborn, sets forth:
It is not the duty of an auxiliary court
or Judge, within whose Jurisdiction testi
mony Is being taken In a suit pending In
a court of another Jurisdiction, to consider
or determine the competency, materiality
or relevancy of the evidence which one of
the parties seeks to elicit.
It is the duty of such court or Judge to
compel the production of the evidence, un
less the witness or the 'evidence Is priv
ileged, or it clearly and affirmatlvel" ap
pears that it would be an abuse of the
process of the court to compel ita produc
tion. Movemeafs of Ocean Vessels Feb. 10,
