Arguments Before the Comptr ;!. by aianoerson ana Cafirey. Ppecial to the Asiorlan. Waeihlntrtan, August 7. Th bearing be fore Comptroller Bowler upon the ques tion of the constitutionality of the sugar bounty nppraprfcvtiowi made by the Usrt congma for the cnops of 1803 and 1894 be gan tottay. Sx-Senator Mandenon, of Nebraska, wk tnade the first argument, said that t-he teterest meter commiseration was one of tjreat lmportBne not only to bis state, bin to the entire United States. Tb bounty provided for la the taw wnm tx; plan of goverwment rewird for experl' merits in sugar production, to '.ho extent of two cents a pound. It was a solemn coratraot for a tnm of years and thjr producers bad a right to rely upon it. The Mate of Nebraska, be said, bad goni to great expense in establishing experi ment elation for the purpose of teaching t'he people bow to grow beetis. iHe cbar--.ot-einzed ttie repeal of the bounty law ol ttji unjust and moat unltuvCm exerc.se of the congreasloaal prerogative md referred to It as a bunco process. Senator Oa fiery asked Mianderaon nvheltb er It imas not true that Uhe RepuWicant 'had voted for the bounty ,a a reasonable measure, and not as going to establish the bounty prlnclpl ,to which Mander son ea.xl such was the case. Citing pre ceueniia, Anuidern rel'erred to t.le op puas.Uon 'made by the federaii&us to Wu purchase of Lo-ulslaaia territory and said "Suppose we should t'hen 'have had ai omcial iwho wou'.d have assumed to nu'.li fy imat act by refusing to pay out tht money lapproprlatud?

The Consolidation of Great Business Interests and . i . RAILROAD COMPANIES ARE Seeking to Out Down Expense! by Amalgamation of Lines and . Lessening of Fay Bolls. OorsolMJtkm, amalgamation . and . tht union of large Interests in aU lines ot business seem to be the order of the day, particularly In railroad circles. Undei present condiKoma of ibuslness unity ol interest and economy of management an absolutely necessary. Vhore is, however, a iinut to which great corporaUons cai go, ibeyoind which the rights of the public are Jeopardized and must be protected line consokidiaulon of parallel and competing- lines of Tailiroad is contrary tc pub.de interest and puiU.c policy, when b) eiiioh cunisoeldojtlon proper competition ane Uowaice of power are wiped out of exist ence. On the other bund, the Joining of vol .r.eoUng lines into one system oruraraspor tatjon wderelby better service and Cheap, er rates ore furnished is legitimate am uommendable. Two great projects, illus tratiiug bath kinds of combination, are now oin Uhe carpet. Tne one, the consoli dation of Uhe Great Northern and North ern rac.Oc, about which much bus been said, ueems not to be for the beat inter com of the public, and it Is very doubt I'ul If It iwiU suboe-eid. Mr. J. Plerpomt Morgan, iwho Is the ad visor of itlae VanideribUt Interests Is sale to hoidi Uhe key to the situation Just now, and he Is reported! to tat not at iad'1 in ac cord with air. lllii. Mr. HiU's proposition to -Uhe reors'anizat'lon commltltee was prac UcaLiy that if he could control the sys temv he wus willing ito agree to pay the boncHooldcrs under his ' reorganization scheme the euro of 35,225,000 per annum. But Just laibout the time the details. of his propo8tft"-becaime genenully known, tlie Norrhern .Pacifk! people found that their net earnings for 'the past fiscal year had, In spite it the hard times, run "up to the 'handsome figure of nearly 38,000,000. And when the general' revival of the times was considered, a great wheat crop being har vested In the northwest, making a big 'tonnage for the road to haul, the resump tion of mining activity in Montana, of the lumber and shingle industry in Washing ton and Oregon, of other Industries, and the improvement of the passenger busi ness, jtbe Northern Pacific officials felt safe In assurtng the receivers that the net earnings for the next fiscal year would be at least -37,000,000. Of course, Mr. Hill's offr of 35,225,000 'or 35,600,000 could not be considered alter this earning statement had been presen'Wd. Mr. Hill's first project for overcoming die Minnesota statute mentioned, K is ourr-ently bedewed, was to organize a new company to build a short north and south road connecting alt some point on the imaln line of the Great Northern with that of the Northern Pacific. Then through this company ha would simulta neously purchase in the name of th company a controlling Inlterest in both roads. There Is a bit' of Interesting history connected with that Minnesota rallorad siatute which has not yet been told in pri . The law was drawn many years ago by ex-Senator Bpooner, of Wiscon sin, who is now special counsel for the receivers of the Northern Pacific. Spooner wn then attorney for the Northewestern Tee Northwestern had gotten possession of t'he old Winona and BU Peter railroad and warned to consolidate It legally with its own sye'tem, so Spooner was sent to St. Paul to procure the necessary legisla tion. He drew bill in two sections. The first section permitted any railroad to consolidate with any other road which was an extension of Its own line. In order to get this through ,ths legislature without any trouble, Mr. Spooner added the seconl section, prohibiting any road from corasoCltllating with any parallel & cornpetlrg road. The bill went through smoothly, and now, after , 20 years, it turn up to block the way of Mr. Hill's err.bl'tlon. Of the other olass of railroad combina tion is the proposed traffic union between t-he Pemmsytvamia Company and the Chi cago, Burtlngton and Qulncy Railroad. Th most promlnenet railroad men in Chicago think there is good reason foi the report of an amalgamation of the Pennayivania and Quimcy systems though on a greatly modified plan. The physical situations arvd commercial interests of thise systems Justify such a report and statemeuits of 'President Roberts, of th Penruylvania, two years ago, seem to con-firm It. In his annual report for Chi Highest of all ia Leavening Power. Latest U. S. Gov't Report year ended December 31, 1893, he s.iid that when the Vandalla line, iwhlch runs from Terre Haute, 171 miles to Peoria, and hfl a Bne from Terre Ha-ute to St. Juseph and another to Eaat St. Louis from, In dianiaipolis, wlaa completed the Pennsylva nia or "Panhandle," which strikes it at Logansportt and Terre Haute, would entur Into some close arrangement for mutual trafllc interests. Continuing, Prealdanit Roberts said: .; "For the purpose of securinff a more direct connection between Its southwest ern lines and -the Chicago, Burlington and Qulncy, and other -western railways, this company acquired the ownership of t majority of the stock of the Toledo,. Peoi rla and Western, 231 miles long. Ncgo tlotlons are now pending wfuli the Chi cago, Buniington, and Qulncey for such Joint ownership and management of Ufli property as will be to the mutual interest of both companies and enable them to Uka advantage of its important geugraph- " leal position." , The scheme of having the biggest and only strictly ttianpckunitinelntal aina in the -United States, it will be seen, occurred to the Pennsylvania people long ago. Phy sical ur.l geographical difficulties have now been removed, and 'the scheme seems about to be consummated. The most fh&t can be said for the new deal is that It 'Will be one of the moat intricate traill a arrangements ever tried, if reports anic Indications count tor anything, und will have an important lnduenca on transcou tinetal truffle. ' ' The outcome of both these great scheme will be watched with the grealUsl Interest by the" shipping public as wei as all railroad oven. ' ' ALL TANGLED UP. Durranit May Get a.
