In the con test between the Keene and the Harrlman Interests in the Union, the Central and the Southern Pacific Railroads, the former today secured from the Federal Court a temporary restraining order, and notice was served on tho Harrlman representa tive that at Nashville, on April 1, there would be a hearing of causa why an In junction should not be issued as prayed for. As tho date for tho annual meeting of the stockholders of the Southern Pacific In April 8, It was desired to have tho pe tition heard before the next election of directors. The Southern Paciflc Company has a Kentucky charter, although It owns no property. In that state. , Its. legal head-. quarters are ntBeecbmorit"Ky.,arsubi' urb of Louisville; where Its legal repre sentative resides, and for this reason the bill of complaint was filed in Louisville yesterday, but the attorneys found no Federal Judge there and came here, where Judge Horace H. Lurton, of the United States Circuit Court, heard the argument in chambers. The attorneys on both sides held conferences here this afternoon be fore they left for their homes to meet again at Nashville two weeks from next "Wednesday. United States Senator Foraker and Judge Harmon, of counsel for the applicants. were in conference after the other at torneys left. Mr. Harmon, as Attorney- CJeneral, during the second Cleveland Ad ministration, had much to do with the Paciflc Railway case for the Government. The bill filed by attorneys for the "com plainants, Talbot Taylor and James B. Taylor, forming the "Wall Street firm of Talbot Taylor & Co., and one of whom ls a eon-ln-law of James R. Keene. relates the history of the Southern Pacific and discloses an alleged condition of affairs in which the Union Pacific- lnterests in the Southern Pacific's directorate V.ave systematically managed the latter com pany in the interest of the former. During the years 1900 and 1901 the Union Pacific Company acquired a holding of Southern Pacific shares, amounting to $75,000,000 or 750.000 shares. These were used, it is al leged, to elect a directory, each member of which was, and is, interested in the Union Paciflc as against the Southern Paciflc The new directory, it ls charged, united all departments of the two roads where evcr possible, "subject to a dominating and controlling 'infiuenco In favor of the Union Pacific" whereby "the Interests of the Southern Paciflc are endangered, and prejudiced by discrimination in favor of the Union Pacific," adopting policies also "that tended and do tend to direct traffic from the Southern Paciflc Company which would, without the adoption of such policies, have come to that road." Hnrt Southern Pacific Business. Among other things it is charced in the bill that the Southern Pacific Company was required, to charge so excessive a pro rata on through tariffs that it was virtual ly excluded from large volumes of busi ness. It is declared that large better ment expenses have been charged a&ainst the Southern Paciflc operating expenses, whereas the custom ls to fund such ex penses in bonds to distribute the cost over a series of years, thus avoiding a burden on the part of the stockholders. TKe bill declares also that the operating expense accounts of the road either show a true state of excessive expenses, or an erroneous system of bookkeeping, and that immense improvements have been undertaken for the Central Pacific which affords the Union Paciflc an outlet from Ogden, Utah, in California and erroneous ly charged against the Southern PaciC? operating expense account, with the ulti mate purpose of greatly Improving tie Central Paciflc at the expense of the parent system, buying It and then pur chasing the greatly impaired Southern Paciflc itself. It Is declared that during the IS months ending December, 1SC2. the Union Pacific had made improvements amounting to nearly J22.000.000 on the Central Paciflc, charging the amount aralnst the operat ing expense of the Southern Paciflc sys tem, and creating a deficit of C073,92. The bill asks for an order restraining and enjoining the Union Pacific Company from voting its U.000 shares in the an nual election to be held April 8. and a decreet requiring both companies to come into court to make answer to the par ticulars of the complaint. Keene' Larjre Interest. The Keene faction ls said to hold about J30.000.000 vjorth of Southern Paciflc stock, having bought it through a pool some- time in the hope of an early dividend. The Union Paciflc people who are in the South ern Pacific board of directors, it is said, oppose a dividend at this time, figuring that tho money would be more wisely ex pended in the shape of improvements and betterments. The Keene following has resorted to the courts in an effort to pre vent the Union Pacific from voting the J73.000.000 worth of stock, which it holds In the Southern Pacific, against a divi dend from the latter company. V The Keene people figure that they will be able to create such changes in the directorate of the road at the annual meetings as will be favorable to tha dec laration of a dividend, instead, as they allege, of having the earnings of the Southern Pacific diverted to betterments on the Central and Union Paciflc Rail ways in the Interest of other Harrlman holdings. Jndge Lnrton's Order. Following is the order made by Judge Lurton: Judge Horace H. Lurton, of tho United States Court, this afternoon issued the following restraining order In the suits pending between the Harrlman and Keene interests relative to the Union. Central and Southern Paciflc holdings: 'I express no opinion upon the merits of the prima facie case made by this bill and its exhibits further than to say it seems to me that the complainants are entitled to have the status preserved until they can give notice and be heard upon an application for a preliminary Injunction. "It is therefore ordered that the de fendant show cause on April 1, 1903. be fore me In my chambers at Nashville, Tenn., at 10 A. M. of said day, why an injunction pendente lite shall not be is sued as prayed for, and in the. meantime let the defendant, the Southern Paciflc Railroad Company, be restrained from In any manner transferring or disposing of the lease of the Central Pacific road here tofore made to the Southern Pacific Com pany, or of any of the rlebts of the said Southern Paciflc Company or any of the rights of the said Southern Pacific Com pany thereunder and from disposing of or transferring by sale or otherwise the s Ha res of the company stock of the said Central - Pacific Company, owned or held by the Southern Pacific Company, and that the said Southern Pacific Company, Its officers, agents and attorneys be re strained from permitting the defendant, the Union Pacific Railroad Company, its officers, directors, agents or attorneys or proxy to vote upon any capital stock of said Southern Pacific Railroad standing in the name of the Union Pacific Railroad Company or in the name 6r names of any person or corporation for its use and ben efit, or In the name of said Mercantile Trust- Company, its officers, directors, agents or proxy or to in any way partici pate as a stockholder in any meeting of the stockholders of the said Southern Pa elite Railroad or any election of officers of said Southern Paciflc Company, and that the said Southern Pacific Company, its directors, officers, agents, etc, be re strained from In any way altering, chang ing, or amending the by-laws of the said company so as to change the time or place for the election of a new board of directors or from in any way changing existing "regulations in respect of the an nual stockholders' meeting or the election of directors, and. that this restraining or der stand until the rule to show cause shall be heard and alsxyflfrd of.

Ho was today unanimously re commended by the Oregon delegation for the appointment, and In all probability his nomination -will be eent to the Senate to morrow "by the President. The delega tions recommendation will be first re ferred to Land Commissioner Richards, but as Daly has been highly commended to both officials as an efficient surveyor and, man of good sound Judgment, and administrative ability, and as they are both extremely anxious to have. Meldrum relieved, there is no doubt that Daly's recommendation will be properly Indorsed' and. returned to . the White Won .Tn. i'view of the pressure from the department it is aiso expected that prompt confirma tion will follow the nomination. Daly ls the personal choice of Senator Fulton and was accepted by Senator Mit chell only after, a series of conferences. Several of tho men whom Mitchell wanted to indorse for the office proved to be In experienced as surveyors. Commissioner Richards indicated to the delegation that a man for Surveyor-General should be an accomplished surveyor, and his views were approved by Secretary Hitchcock, who holds the Commissioner personally responsible for his entire force. As soon as Daly has been confirmed Meldrum will be dismissed from the service, as has been predicted in these dispatches on numerous occasions. His service has been unsatisfactory In the extreme, and investigation made of his office by Inspector Green furnished the final basis for the Secretary's decision to demand his removal. , Not oniy was he reported to have been frequently under the Influence of liquor, but he neglected the office and allowed Important affairs to lapse and rendered Inefficient service generally. Upon the advent of the new Surveyor-General, a chief clerk will be selected for the office to succeed Waggoner, removed. This office ls In the classified service and the choice will be made from the certified list. ' John D. Daly is a native of New York, born In 1S37, and raised In New Jersey. He came to California in 1864 -and engaged in business in Stockton, in which he con tinued several years. In 1S78 he came to Oregon, settling at Yaqulna Eoy, and was the editor and proprietor of the Yaqulna Bay News. A few years later he removed to Corvallls and started the Oregon Union. This at present is the only Republican paper In Corvallls, and It, as well as its XORTHWEST IX CAPITAL. Baker City Building Site Contract for Portland Postofllce. OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash ington. March 13. Representative Moody today consulted with the supervising ar chitect regarding the purchase of a pub lic building site at Baker City under the recent appropriation. He told Mr. Taylor that an entire city block should be ac quired, as Baker City is destined to be the greatest mining city of the North west and the metropolis of Eastern Ore gon. He says the department should look to the future in preparing plans, and make provision for an ample postoffice. and as the state will certainly soon be divided into two Judicial districts, and as an assay office may later be estab lished in that mining center, a building should be erected of sufficient size to ac commodate these respective offices. Mr. Moody was also advised that to morrow the Secretary of the Treasury will sign the contract with Hartman, Thomp son Powers for the temporary post office In Portland. His signature has been writhheia until all details as to moving, refitting, etc., could be satisfactorily ad Justed. The bidders Include all this work in their contract price. $1800 a month. Mr. Moody will remain in Washington several days longer awaiting the consummation of matters in the department which he is advocating. Senator Fulton today called on Adju. tant-General Corbln a"nd asked that Lleu tenantTColonel James Jackson, retired, of Portland, be assigned as Inspector of the Oregon National Guard. This assignment Is recommended by the entire delega tion. S. M. Bruce, of Whatcom, Wash., had Interviews" today with Interior Depart ment officials to protest against the en largement of the Washington forest re serve along lines of recent temporary withdrawals. He was assured that the department intended to give due consid eration to the wishes of the people and would exclude from actual additions all lands that are now settled upon and Im proved. Nothing will be done, however, until the lands have been examined by special agents. DRESSER IS THE CHOICE. Recommended for .Register of Ore i X , .-koK.vCKy ImjWQc -ir OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU.

CASE FOR FEDERAL LAW Coal Conspirators Violated Inter state Commerce, Xot Illinois, Lnvr. CHICAGO, March 13.-Judge Chetlaln to day Instructed- the Jury In the trial of the Indiana coal operators to bring in a ver dict of "not guilty." The Jury was then discharged. The court held that if there was any violation of the law by operators It was a violation of the interstate law, and not of the statutes of Illinois. Such being the case, the Federal jury must try the case. The decision came as a result of At torney HammlU's motion to take the case from the Jury and discharge the defend ants or to Instruct the Jury to return a verdict of not guilty. Judge Chetlaln de elded that the- affairs of the Bogle-Indiana crowd were properly classified under in terstate commerce, and that the act of 1S91 covering the anti-trust law and the conspiracy statute of Illinois, so far as it covers an illegal act injurious to public trade, has no application to interstate commerce: that the agreement or con tract entered Into by the defendants tended to create a monopoly and. restrict trade, and that, " while the defendants were amenable to the law, they could only be prosecuted under the Federal law.

NEW SURVEYOR-GENERAL OF OREGON SHU FF Felt by Senators at Ex tra Session Talk. GHOSTS OF DEAD BILLS Would Rise Again and Plague the Leaders, ; THEY PROTEST TO PRESIDENT Democrats Would Resurrect Hoar. Anti-Trust Bill and Make Thlnga Unpleasant Short' Selon la Their Great Desire. OREGONLVN NEWS BUREAU, Wash ington, March 13. The suggestion that there Is to be an extra session of Con gress always throws Republican Senators Into mor or less consternation, and an intimation that such a session might be. called In October has not been received well by them. They do not believe that such a session is at all likely and it is understood that many of them will very strongly urge the President not to take such a step, and point out many reasons why It would not be well to have such a session. The party leaders think that there will be a ' great deal of legislation offered which may be more or less embarrassing. In fact. It is known that as soon as Con gress meets, whether In extra session or in December, the Hoar anti-trust bill will be Introduced by some Democrat and after a very short time, if it Is not re ported, an effort will be made to have the committee discharged and the bill brought before the Senate. Of course, the Republicans can vote down such -a meas ure, but it will be proposed again and again and the Democrats will claim that the Republicans are refusing to live up to their anti-trust professions. Then there is an eight-hour bill which caused a great deal of trouble In the last Congress and which would have passed had there been time as the labor interests had made It very difficult 'for Republicans to oppose It ' It has been pointed out that the services of Republican Senators and Represents tives will be needed this Fall in the states where there are important campaigns. Of these Maryland, Ohio and Iowa are con sidered of great moment, especially as the Legislature to be -chosen In Maryland will elect the successor to McComas, a Republican. It is generally conceded that Hanna will carry the Ohio Legislature, but the Republicans do not want any fall ing off in the vote In that state. Of course this Is one of the excuses made and it only goes to show that it ls the present policy of the Republican party to make the next Congress as short aa possible, and to pass the appropriation bills and get away. If there Is apparent need, for It, no doubt the Aldrich financial bill or something similar will be passed when the next Congress meets. What the Republicans say Is that there Is no great necessity for the Cuban treaty being put in operation, and although it has been determined that Cuban products cannot be shipped here In bond, awaiting the final operation of the treaty, it Is believed that the prospects of the rec iprocity will stimulate industries in that island. STATE SENATOR JOH5. D. DALY, -OF, BEXTOX COIJXTY. AXOTHER VERSIOX OF IT. President Onl Considering Question, of Extra Session. WASHINGTON. March 13. It can be stated by authority that President Roose velt has not definitely made up his mind to call an extraordinary session of the Fifty-eighth Congress. He, however, Is considering the practicability of doing so. When he was Informed that it was the Intention of the Senate to so amend tha Cuban reciprocity treaty as to render "ac tion upon It by the House of Represen tatives necessary to make it effective, he informed some members of the Senate that he would hold himself free to call an extraordinary session of the Congress In order to secure action on It. No defi nite time was mentioned by the Presi dent for the meeting of the extraordinary session The President Is much in earnest in his desire to have the Cuban treaty ratified and make It effective. It can be said that so strong Is this desire he even has considered the advisability of calling tho Congress Into extraordinary session this Spring, if the Senate should permit the Cuban treaty to fall through lack of a quorum. That, however. Is a contingency which he considers Improbable. The be lief of the President and his advisers is that the Senate will take definite action on both the Panama Canal and Cuban reciprocity treaties at the present ex traordinary session. Assurances to that effect have been received from the lead ers of the Senate. The President believes also, It can be said, that the work of the Senate will have been accomplished by the last of next week. Further than that the Presi dent "holds himself free" to call an ex traordinary session .of the Fifty-eighth Congress, nothing has been determined. Senators who talked with the President today believe it to be unlikely that an ex traordinary session will be called next Autumn. They say many reasons might be cited why such a session should not be held, the principal one being that some Important state elections are to be held In November, and members of Congress will be busy with political affairs In their own state?. They point out that on the eve of a Presidential campaign it Is high ly important that every effort be made, especially in doubtful states, to maintain the strength of party organization. In such circumstances, it Is said, it would be possible only with difficulty to main tain a quorum at each branch of the extra session. If the session were not called until November they say It would he so close to the regular session as to render it practically unnecessary.
