WAR FOR GOVERNMENT BUSINESS FEARED Oiaaha Officials Think Cnt May Be Caased by Waiver of Cost . ot Traasfer at Chicago. CHICAGO, Feb. T. Th Inter Ocean to day says that In order to prevent the transcontinental mall from being trans ferred to the Rock Island system the Bur lington railroad has notified the Postofnce department that It will cut its rate for this service about T per cent, equal to about 08,O0O per annum, - . , Thi Is the first time that a railroad ha offered to cut the rate fixed by an act of congress for mall service. The Burling ton's proposition caused amazement In rail way circles yesterday. In view of th bills which have been introduced fh congress to lessen the pay to railroads for mall service. The fear was expressed by officials of other railroads that the Burlington's, ac tion might lead to a rat war between the railroads for mall traffic between all com petitive points, and might also be regarded by oongress as the best of evldunce that the price paid by the government for the transportation of the malls has been too high. "Nothing ha been heard at Omaha con cerning the above statement." said l W. Wakf.ley. general passenger agent of the Burlington, "but If It la so, the Burlington is probably assuming the cost of trans porting the mails across Chicago, which th Rock Island claimed it would save to the government, and was about ,000 a year.

Cet them of 7 result, I would interpret th Inter Ocean story to mean that the Burlington had agreed to equalise th through rat by meeting the Rock Island competition. The Burlington does not reduce the rate, but assumes th difference In cost In the extra transfer of mail across Chicago, the same as Is done every day In passenger and freight business.
