NKW YORK, March J3.-J. Plerpont
Morgan testified todai- ln the suit of
Peter Powers against ths Northern Pa
ct Ao' to restrain that road from convert
ing -Ha preferred stock into that of the
Northern Securities Company.
An eager crowd of brokers and lawyer
filled the court room to hear the details
of the. Northern Paclflo corner.
Morgan said that when the Northern
Paotfle affairs began to cause unessiness
among the publlo he became convinced
that something should be done, and as a
- result an understanding was arrived at
that the Morgan interests would be left
In. control of the road. . ,
He defined a "Community of Interests"
as a body of men who own property and
oo wnat tney please with It.
Morgan began by saying that his com
pany was h$ f financial?, agent for., the
Northern Pa6J4o. and that he had absolute
charge of " the re-organisation of that
road. The Great Northern, he said, was-
shar competitor of the Northern Pa
. ulflc at various ' points. Regarding the
retirement of the. preferred stock, he de
clared the dtreoters had absolute power
to io that and that the question was not
submitted to ther common stock holders
as a whole. He suggested to Mr., James
, 3. Hill, two years ago, that the Northern
Paclflo ought to enter Chicago, ' and ad
vised the jmrohase of the St Paul line,
h... wanted to buy the Burlington, be
cause tt would bring more freight than
the St. Paul, but the latter road, refused
to sell, so negotiations with the Burling
ton were entered Into.

consummated, will materially chrhge the
political situation Jn the State. One Is
said to be a combination of the friends
of Congressman Moodjl; and his strong
est opponent, Btate Seas tor J. N. WUI

; The second reputed deal and une which
Is of as much Importance ss the Wllllam-iin-Moody

No one has been found who will vouch
for the' truth of, Chess reputed bargains
hut the slate-makers are excited.
A strong sentiment sprang up this
morning mDemocrSUo etreies in favor of

as far as the offlee of Mayor fs concerned

that he will receive the labor Vote In Us

candidates for' Mayor ire John Lamont,

The Independent Republicans wilt hold
a caucus tonight in the Cathollo Forest

talk of an "'"open convention,"' it Is al
most certain that a full ticket will be
slated. The Regular Republicans say that
they expsct nothing and the indications
are that they will -not be disappointed.
The slats-makers are at 'sea. ' Besides
the nomination of Judge Williams for
