The Vanderbilt and Harriman-Goald
Interests Have Agreed.
WILL Yin OUT CUMI'ETITION
The Absorbing of the Wagner Car
Concern by the Pullman Company
a Revelation to Manv.
A special dispatch to the San Fran
Cisco Examiner, dated Chicago, October!
22, says: j
A New York man, well known in the
financial world, now In this city, is au-1
thority for the statement that the next'
few months will witness a sweeping
consolidation of railroad interests that
will wipe out the last vestige of compe
tition between the Vanderbilt and Har-;
riman-Gould interests. i
According to this authority the con-:
solidatlon of the palace car companies
was the preliminary sep towards car
ry in c out a deal which J. Pierrepont
Morgan and his financial allien have
been working for more than a year. j
It has been a revelation to many
railroad men to find that members of
the Pullman Company Hoard of Direc
tors are not only very heavy holders of
stock In other roads of the Vanderbilt
system, but that the Vanderbllts and
their allien have ben for six months
past quietly buying Pullman stock, un
til their Interests are large, outside
the 20,C00,e00 in stock which Is to be
transferred in exchange for the Wag
ner interests. This feature of the
sleeping car combine has revealed a
secret compact which has been In exis
tence for many months, by which the
end of competition between the palace
car companies was to presage a more
sweeping consolidation of Interests be
tween the Vanderbilt lines and their
former enemies. The division of Inter
ests between the sleeping car concerns
was an Important obstacle to .the car
rying out of the Morgan plans for the
consolidation of the railroads them
selves, and Its removal makes compara
tively plain sailing.

EXPECT TRUCE TO BE BROKEN.
Eastern Rumor Sas Both Northern
Pacific and O. R. A N. Plan
New Work Soon.
There is a rumor In railroad circles
at St. Paul that the truce between the
Northern Pacific and the O. R. & N.
may not last until February 4, the date
set a the date of expiration. It Is said
the Northern Pacific has surveyors out
in the Bitter Root country and Is plan
ning to begin work at the most favora
ble moment. This Is In the direction
the road agreed to remain passive. The
O. R. N. Is credited with desiring to
renew Its contracts for construction.
There is little doubt that the North
ern Pacific has surveyors In the Bitter
Root country, and in fact local railroad
men have not made any attempt to de
ny the report to that effect, but North
ern Pacific officials from President Mel
len down Insist the truce will be un
broken. President Mellon Is expected to be on
the coast In a rhort time, and In com
pany v. Ith a party of directors, will visit
and Inspect the work In the Clearwa
ter country. This visit may have an
Important bearing on the fight for the
New Tork Times.
What Is especially striking about the
procedures of these citizens is the
warm personal animosity to the presi
dent of the United States that appears
to Inspire them, and which is not In
the least res'ralned by any polite pre
tense of respect for the office which Mr.
McKlnley holds. Nothing whatever re
strains the anrl-imp-Tlallnts from mak
ing accusations against the president of
the United Sta.es of a kind which one
would Imagine ordinary decorum would
have prevented them from putting so
very bluntly. Mr. Schurz had nothing
more personal to say than that the
president's policy In respect to the
Phlllplnes was "a criminal blunder and
a blundering crime," and then to de
scribe the war In the Philippines as the
"President's war." Mr. Edward Atkin
son went further, as might be expected,
and accused the president of a desire
to turn this republic Into an empire.
But Mr. Edwin Burritt Smith, the tem
porary chairman of the convention,
went furthest, and seemed to have ac
cused the president of pretty much ev
ery crime in the calendar, including

PORTRAIT OF LEE

Picture of the Great Soldier of the
South Will Hang beside That
of (iemral Grant.
A portrait of General Robert E. Lee,
C. S. A., is to be hung in Grant Hall at
the West Point Military Academy.
To every graduate In the army, north
and south, the appearance of the face
of the great confederate soldier on the
walls of his alma mater, side by side
with that of his great antagonist,
Grant, means the end of controversy,
the end of bitterness, the end of all
things (sectional. Lee as he appears in
his place of honor will not be the gray
garbed leader of a lost cause with the
stars of a general shining in the field
on his shoulder. He will appear In the

eagle on the yellow ground of the
Bhoulder knot, denoting the rank of a
colonel of cavalry, the position

has s'cured the permission of the War
Department for the placing of the pic
ture. Tne thought Is held and felt
deeply by army officers and army au
thorities that nothing but good to the
coming generations of cadets can come
from the proposed honoring of the
memory of one of the greatest soldiers
who ever owed his military training to
Wcwt Point on the Hudson.

gave his life for the South at Shlloh.
The portrait of General Johnston was
put In place long years before the war
on the wall of the army officers' mess
roon. at West Point. It showed him as
a Kubaltern officer of cavalry In the
United States forces. Johnston at one
time was stationed at West Point, and
the officers assembled there as Instruc
tors voted to have him manage their
mess. The quality of the food and

he said. There was a "right cut" from

was relieved from duty and sent West.
He was dismissed from the service
