' NEW YORK. Kept, a In two houre of wild trading today the stock market was thrown into confusion by a violent break In price, followed by an equally violent Recovery. Widely circulated reports that the United States Steel corporation was preparing to dlasolve, lncompllance with the Sherman anti-trust Uaw, or that dis solution suit was soon to be filed by the federal government led to a flood of selling orders. Railroad stocks, which were affected adversely -toy the defeat of Canadian reciprocity, also sold off sharp ly.

Another factor In tlie decline of the stocks of the'stesl corporation was the ijvss In tel products with a resultant ' general cutting of price and the prob able necessity of 'educing wages.

RAILROADS CANNOT AGREE Rock Island Gives Up Hope of Rout ing Through Cars. HISTORY OF THE TROUBLE Northwestern and Milwaukee Road Are th Chief Beneflclarle of the New Order o th Inter . . state Commission. Th Burllngtoh and Rock Island rail roads have awakened to th fact thai the Ogden and Salt Lake gateway to the west 1 not only closed to them, but they have awakened to the fact that' thla gateway ha been locked and the key thrown away. As the situation now stands, by reaaon 6f a ruling ot the Inter state Commerce commission, neither road can sell through western ticket to points west .of ' Denver and give a continuous passage. None of the Union Pacific. Northwest ern or Milwaukee officials here will claim responsibility for th new order of thing, which 1 admitted to be the shrewdest move mad on the railroad checker board In mainy a year. They throw the reaponalbillty upon th Inter state Commerc commission, contending that It wa a move that thi tribunal made upon its own volition. All concede that the Northwestern and Milwaukee have become the beneficiaries, as they are enabled to run their through car to the coast on the trains of the Union Pa cific the Southern Pacific and the San Pedro line. Rock Island 6lve Up. Already the Rock Island has submitted to the inevitable and ha given notice that all of Its coast business 11 be routed via El Paso. The Burlington people are not saying a word, other than iO remark that the matter has not been dually disposed of. ' The origin of the order of the Harriman lines closing the Ogden and Salt Lake gateway to th Burlington and Rock Is land came about in thi way: About one and one-half years ago the Interstate Commerce commission ordered the Southern Pacific, the Western Pa cific and the San Pedro lines to reduce their fare from Ogden- and Salt Lake City to San Francisco and Los Angele to 123 68 and S26 respectively. The rate nf S23.B8 1 based on S cents per mile, while the rate to Los Anreles Is some what higher, the commission predicating the t25 rate on the fact iiiai the country i 'traversed by the San Pedro line was j sparsely settled and entitled to some- I what higher rates than those allowed the Southern Pacific. When the Western Paclfie opened Its line from Ogden to j San Francisco, it was obliged to meet the rate established by the commission tor the Southern Paclfie. The through fares front the Missouri river to California were pot affected by the order ot th commission and re mained a heretofore, till fer flrtt nd $10 for second class and S for a nine months' round trip ticket. Dividing: 'Through Pare. The through fares hav always been divided on percentages derived from the local fares of the lines to gnd from Ogden and Salt Lake City. Tht is to say. the Union Pacific fare from Omaha to Ogden and Salt' Lako City 1 ILS.tft and the Souther. Pacific fare from the two Utah towns to 6an Francisco, prior to the re duction made by the commission, t'0. Therefore the through fare wa divided practically on a basts of SO and SO per cent. When the reduced fare ordered by the commission took effect the Burlington end Rock Island Insisted on dividing on the basis of the new rate, taking ad van. tage ao to speak of the lines went of Ogden and fait Lak City, to increase their own proportion. Thla would, not in any wis benefit th public, but would add from S3 to $ per ticket to their rev enu on every passenger routed to th coast.

L. Borden will shortly be called on to for.n a conservative ministry. That the changes enacted during the last twenty four hour by the registration of the will of tha electorate are radical is shown by th overwhelming majority whereby the vot er turned down the agreement which Laurier had made with the United State for the mutual removal of duties ou food and other natural products by the defeat of seven cabinet minister out of thirteen who went to the polls, and by the political landslide which will retire xf private life Sir Wilfrid Laurier, one of "the biggest figures In the British empire. Out of nine Canadian provinces, only Quebec, Laurier' native place, came any where near remaining faithful to him, and Quebec did not do any too well. On tarlo, the greatest of the provinces, dealt Laurier a terrible blow, going almost solidly against him. and the same may be said also of Manitoba and British Co lumbia. Saskatchewan and Alberta, two great wheat raising provinces.' gave a mild support to the cause ot reciprocity.
