GENERAL PROTEST FORMS
Commission to Be Asked to Prevent
Union Pacific and Oregon Short
Line Prom Holding Scenic
Public officials and commercial or
ganizations In Southern Idaho and
Northern Utah are preparing to protest
to the Interstate Commerce Commission
against the recent action of the Union
Pacific and Oregon Short Line in can
celing passenger rates in connection
with the Denver & Rio Grande through
the Ogden and Salt Lake gateways.
While the proposed cancellations do
not affect the business west of Hunt
ington, it is expected that the O.-W. R.
& K. territory soon will be similarly
By this method the Union Pacific sys
tem will be in position to say to its
"If you want to travel between points
on the Oregon Short Line on the west
and points east of Denver on the east,
you can no longer have a choice of
routes at Ogden and Salt Lake City.
You must travel all the way over our
lines or pay the penalty of a higher
rate for traveling over the Denver &
Rio Grande between Sale Lake City and
.-. will no Millie.
This is virtually what the Union
Pacific already has said to its passen
ger patrons in the territory east of
Huntington. B. L. Winchell, traffic di
rector of the Union Pacific system, said
at Chicago last week that the order
will not be issued against the O.-W. R
& N. territory, and travelers here are
hoping that that condition will remain
in effect. The Denver & Rio Grande,
on account of its scenic attractions, al
ways has been popular with persons
traveling between Portland and other
points in the Northwest and the East.
With the privilege of traveling over
this line withdrawn it is believed that
the Northwest would lose much of the
tourist travel that annually passes this
Meanwhile, other railroads connect
ing with the Union Pacific, notably the
Santa Fe, Burlington, Rock Island and
Missouri Pacific have served notice with
the Commission that they will refuse
to become a party to the new order
closing the gateways.
Rltcht of Originator Pleaded.
When the Union Pacific attempted, a
few years ago, to close the Denver
gateway on freight business, it insisted
that no such action was contemplated
on passenger traffic. However, the
records show that a large volume of
passenger traffic is diverted every year
over the Denver & Rio Grande between
Salt Lake City and Denver, and it is
understood now that the Union Pacific
seeks to retain this business for itself.
"If we originate the business," they
argue, "it is not reasonable to expect
us to turn it over for the long haul to
a competing road.
"If people still want to travel via the
Denver & Rio Grande they can buy
local tickets connecting at Ogden or
Salt Lake City."
Such combination of local rates will
be more expensive, however, than the
through rates now enjoyed.
Mr. Winchell will be in Portland
within a few days, and it is expected
that the subject will be taken up with
him while he is here.

AMEBIC AN WOOIi SUPPLY NOT LARGE
Western Clips Transferred at Good Prices
Wool trading at Boston fell off last
week, transfers amounting to about 5,000,000
pounds. Prices remain firm. Included in
the sales were 1000 bags Montana at from
21 He to 23c, and a similar quantity of
Dakota at 22 23c, 100,000 pounds Nevada
from 20c to 20c, several hundred thou

10,000 pounds New Mexican at 19c, about
8000 pounds fine Montana clothing at 21c,
100,000 pounds Colorado half-blood at 22c
500 0 pounds half-blood Soda Springs at 24c,
100,000 pounds Utah at 19 20c, containing
mostly fine clothing, and 200,000 pounds of
Idaho at 20 to 21c, or a clean cost of about
The problem of the wool supply Is r
ceiving considerable attention at the mo
ment from every branch of the trade, says
the Boston Commercial Bulletin. Well-
posted merchants assert with positlveness
that to the best of their belief there are
not over 35,000.000 to 40,000,000 pounds of
territory wool available for the mills in
the owrfershlp of the Boston trade. Thus
the total supply of domestic wool Is far
from heavy and given a fairly good demand
for goods the assertion that this wool will
all be needed seems far from illogical.
I HE FIRST t'UGGLE HOPS ARE SOLD
Command Same Price This Year as Laicr
Fuggle hops are selling this year at the
same price as the late variety. TM ab
sence of a premium on the early sort is
due to the fact that there Is as yet no-
export demand for them.
McNeff Bros, yesterday bought several
lots of fuggles and clusters, aggregating
49 bales, at 17 to 18 cents.
McKlnley Mitchell returned yesterday
after an inspection of yards In the Laurel,
Jefferson, Gervais and Aurora sections. He

short of last jear and estimates the total
yield of the state at 100.000 to 110.000

NEW YORK. Sept. 9- Completion of the
details connected with ths new city loan
of $100,000,000 was the noteworthy fea
ture of the day m the financial district.
Just what proportion of the entire amount
will be taken by foreign interests is a mat.
ter of conjecture, but Indications point to
a strona- demand from that quarter.
Local banks and bankers committed to
the loan regard the notes as an excellent
Investment at this time, because of the
unusually larpe Interest yield, and appllca
tlons from that source promise to be suf
ficlently large to reduce Individual allot
ments to small amounts.
Advices from the various cities suggest
that the municipalities are likely to avail
themselves of the methods adopted by this
city to refund maturing debts. it is vir
tually a foregone conclusion that In every
Instance where this Is done, renewals or new
loans will be negotiated at higher Interest
Exchange was more active today, moving
In a manner, that denoted a better inquiry
at London. Cables and demand were 1 to
Itt cents above yesterday, with an Increased
supply of bills. Hardening of the rate was
ascribed t demands from local banking
interests, which wilt have to send large
remittances abroad for dividends by the end
of the month. .
According; to trade authorities, the past
few weeks have witnessed a marked de
crease In steel orders. Export trade has
not develODed fast enouirh to offset lack
of domestic demand. Nevertheless, the
August statement of unfilled tonnage of the
United States Steel Corporation, to be issuen
tomorrow. Is expected to show an Increase
over the nrecedlng month.
Rpraitw nf n. holfdav. the Chicago rraln
market suspended operations today. Local
quotations were slightly easier, with oniy
a nominal market for corn. Other com
modities reflected more stability.
Declaration of regular dividends by New
York Central and Western Lnlon Teiegrapn
neutralized the effect of some recent de
ferred and reduced disbursements.
