WA R! 1 1NGTON, May 30. (Special Tele-
. pram.) Tho culmination of the octlon of
the shippers' meet Inc. held In Omaha on
May 21, came today when a committee ap
pointed at that meethiR, accompanied by
many senators and representatives . from
Nebraska, Missouri, Iowa, Minnesota, Wis
consin and Illinois, had a conference with
Attorney General Wlckcrsham, at which
the committee presented to the head of the
Department of Justice an urgent appeal
that the machinery of that -department be
el tn motion under the terms of the Bher
i inn act to dissolve the association of rail
roads known as the Western Trunk Lin.
company aod to enjoin the railroads and
their agents from puttlns In effect and col
lecting the advances promulgated by the
I assoolatlon through Its agent, W. II. llos-
V.ier of Chicago.
The appeal of the shippers was presented
jy Hon. William Duff Haynle of Chlcato,
counsel for the Illinois Manufacturers' as
sociation. He represented that the ct
noxious tariffs were to become effective
June I and that shippers despaired of get
ting any action under the interstate com
merce law, since that action would neces
mully Involve corc.plalnt, hearing and argu
ment, and consequently long delay. The
udvatices of June 1, he said, would fol
low numerous other advances that had
linen made since the Hepburn law took
effect, and the unanimous expression of the
meeting of shippers at Omaha was to the
effect that It would be impossible for the
producers, manufacturers and consumers to
bear this additional burden.

For this reason and for the reason thai
both houses of congress had refused to
exempt railroad from the operation of the
Sherman law, -the shippers, finding rail
roads deaf to their appeals, decided to In.

general by the terms of that statute to

It was urged upon the 'attorney general
that In the famous Transmtssourl Freight
association case the federal courts had per
petually enjoined all members of that asso
ciation both from continuing their con
spiracy and from entering Into any similar
conspiracy In future. Inasmuch as a num
ber of defendants, enjoined In that proceed
ing, are members of the trunk line com
pany, It was strongly represented that, if
that company was shown to be In a con
spiracy, those roads were In contempt of
the federal courts.
liy request of the attorney general, the
members of the shippers' committee re
ffeulned after the departure of senators

asked to file and evidence that would be

that would necessarily bo embodied In such

organization of a general boycott against
American goods. None ot tho powerful
six companies' official's will discuss the

Another source of complaint seems to be
