by political exigencies.

His viewpoint In not shared In by Rpp
reeentstlve Payne, who nid tonight that
the rates of th houn bill, i'l !H from
the standpoint of the Interest of the. gen
eral public, are materially lower than those
of the Senate bill.
Mr. I'ayne polntod out that MiVs. tallow,
Iron ore. licorice extracts and nth"V articles
of (Treat Importance to the Consuinlmr
public were tranxfetred to. the dutiable I'M
by the senate,, while Mllaator skins,
radium,'' oertaln splree, olo-stearln and
miners Safely appliances' were the moet
Important articles placed on the free Hat
by the aenate.
Mr. Payne declined to Uruss at this
time the relative merits of the sepnra'.e
provisions of Jhe bills.
"It la unfair 'to compare the two hills
by figuring- the average advalorem rates
of each." said Mr. Payne. "Many reduc
tions were made by trje houco on articles
where the Dlngley rates were practically
prohibitory, and on theee articles the ad
valorem method of comparison would hot
appear ' to the advantage of the house
measure. The only way to compare the
bills Is to consider what each house did
with the Important Items."
Changes In Senate fllll.
Members of the house tonight called at
tention to the fact that coal, wire nails
scrap Iron, shoes and leather, cotton and
wool manufactures, petroleum, potatoes,
rough lumber, lead paints, structural Iron,
cutlery, sine bullion, pig lead and other
articles of general consumption were In
creased over the house rates, while dresiied
lumber, gloves, hosiery and certain Iron
and steel products Would be the principal
senate reductions of Interest to the public.
The conferees hope to conclude their
work by the end of next week, holding
lengthy sessions dally. In the meantime
both houses will mark time, holding ses
sions every three days. hTe house will
meet Monday and the senate Tuesday, but
having no business to transact will adjourn
Immediately. ' Leaders In both houses are
expecting to dispose of the tariff before
the end of the present month.

END OF ILLINOIS CENTRAL
Union Pacififl Preparing' to Take Orer
HABJLMAU PLAH NEARLY MATURE
Will Bo Like ParrkSM of B aril a art on

NEW YORK. July ll.-Pers!tant reports
continue to be heard In Wall street that
plans are under way for ths carrying out
of a comprehensive deal Involving the
absolute transfer of control of the Illinois
Central Railroad oompany to the Union
Faclflo Railroad oompany. In official
quarters knowledge of any such propo
sition Is dleolalmed. --ut the Idea finds
many believers In well Informed quarters.
Even those who assert positively that
some suoh deal will bo put through de-
olare that It will not bo consummated for
Thslr Idea Is that upon B. H. Hani-
man's return from Europe he will take up
the matter and carry It to a conclusion
before the end of the year.
Rumors that the Union rectflc would
lease the Illinois Central on a 10 per cent
guaranteed basis are generally accredited
In authoritative Quarters. Unofficial In
formation concerning the plana tinder way,
likewise, does not agree with the 10 per
cent guaranteed dividend theory.
Those professing to have knowledge of
the matter assert that details of the plan
for taking over the Illinois Central have
not been worked out, but that If It Is
eventually executed It will probably pro
vide for the exchange of collateral trust
bonds for stock of the Illinois Central, the
latter being taken over at a valuation of
say SOO per cent In bonds, whleh would
become a liability of the Union Paclflo
and be secured by the Illinois Central atook
as collateral. . i
Imitate Hill's Methods.
Such a proposition Would be very similar
to the deal by which the Burlington was
taken over by- the Great Northern and
Northern raclflo: Jointly.
The belief la entertained In some quar
ters that the reported plan for acquiring
tbe Illinois Central la but part of a very
comprehensive scheme In contemplation
which may eventually Involve several other
When the content for control of the
Illinois Central was on It was disclosed
that E. H. Harrlman and his assoolatea,
actually owned t per cent of the out
standing atook, and they succeeded In get
ting proxlen for sufficient additional to
swing control of the property.
The fact that the Illinois Central Is al
ready controlled by the Harrimen party has
led to a good deal of doubt as to the truth
of the current reports oonoeralng a pro
posed relinquishment - of that control. It
is said, however, that Mr. Harrlman wishes
to so arrange the Illinois Central situa
tion that control of the road oould not In
the future. In any way, bo obtained by
other Interests. Under the present arrange
ment. It Is conceivable that such might be
It Is said that his desire Is to place. If
possible, all the stock of the Illinois Cen
tral In the Union Paolflo's treasury. By
offering collateral trust bonds In exchange
for Illinois Central shares, It Is pointed out,
such a deal would not Involve the raising
of any additional money by the Union
Pacific. The earnings of the Illinois Cen
tral, It Is-believed, are such that thsy oould
easily take care of the Interest of such
collateral trust bonds as might be Issued.
Hnrahan Discredits Reports.
CHICAGO, July 11. t. T. Harahan, pre
sident of the Illinois Centra asserted In
Chicago last night that he had no know
ledge of a proposed merging of the Union
Paclflo, adding that he probably would have
known Immediately of the plans If any suoh
had been In contemplation. .
'Whatever rumors have become current
In that connection are unfounded, Mr.
Harahan said, "especially at this time with
Mr. Harrlman In Europe. To my knowledge
such a deal never haa been conaldsred and
I hardly think It is being considered now. I
cannot credit the reports. I should know
It any suoh plans were under advisement,
Julius Kruttschnitt, dtreotor of mainte

fic, also asserted that ho had not heard
of any proposed merger. He declared, that
