PEARSALL TO BE DEFEATED
A Message From Seattle Last Might

Seattle, August 31. On Monday next
Judge Han ford will announce hla decision
In the. suit of Brayton Ives, president ot
the Northern Pacific Railroad Company,
to ouBt the, present receivers, . Oakes,
Payne and Rouse.
J. J. Hill, president of the Great North
em, returned to St. Paul from New York
last week and hls statements in regard
to the 'Northern Pacific deal are most In
teresting as published by the 1'ioneer
J. J. (Hill Is home. He Is liable to re
turn to New York at any time. When
asked lust night at Ms residence by a
Pioneer Press reporter regarding the
Great Nbruhern-Nbrthevn Pacific deal ho
replied that It 'was still In good shape.
When asked if It iwas In as good shape
as it ever wvis, he replied In a trisyllable:
"Whit about the legal compClcatlons?"
he rwas asked.
There will toe none of a serious nature,"
l.-e replied. "I see that one of the stock
holdens has brought suit against us. But
that doeen't oimbunt to much."
"You refer to Pearsall of Now York."
"Yes. We shall defeat him on his own
grountl. He thinks thut the proposed deal
vould be Inimical to his and other Inter
eats, ut he 1s evidently mistaken. Most
of the Great Northern peoro think other
wise, and we eMail defeat him."
"Then you expect no leg:il obstacles to
the consum'mn'tlon of your deal."
"None. The deal Will be carried out as
"How Is the reorganlzajtlon progressing."
"It seems to be progressing very well."
"How long Should it take?" i
"I cannot tell. I have stated to you
before and to others for publication no
less than twenty or thirty times that It
can only be consummated by the security
holdws of the Northern Pacific."
, "What are the differences between you
and the Northern Pacific people as repre
sented by J. Plerpont Morgan?"
"None. J. Plerpont Morgan 1ms nothing
to do with this. He may represent some
of the underwriters, but they will come In
aftenwoirds. People who write about dif
ferences between my'self and Mr. Morgan
are writing SVr space."
"What is the actual amount of guaran
tee c-f earnings or so-called rentai?"
"Six anMHon tlwo hundred thousand dol
"Is 1t a fact that tho Northern Pacific
people demanded $7,000,000 and also $15,
"It 1s not a (fact, and all reports to that
effect are wind." '
"Thon after itlhe reorganization has been
effected there appears to be no obstacle
In thie way of your plan for control?"
"There uppcars to be none. You have
slezd up the situation correctly."
"You are confident now that the deal
will be all right?"
As bearing upon the claim which the
Tresld'ent of the Northern Pacific com
pany 1s endeavoring to maintain ut Se
attle, that Judgo Jenkins had no Juris
diction over tho WropsPty- of the com
pany iln appointing the receivers. It Is
Interesting to note that In 1875 George
W. Case 'Was aippolnted receiver of the
Northern Pacific compiny by a United
States clicult court in the state of New
York, and served in that capiclty With
out question until the company was re
organized. So much bias been said recently re
garding the probable net earn Intra of the
Northern Pacific company for the year
ending June 30, on account of their bear
lng upon.the reorganization, that it seems
desirable to correct certain misleading
statement regarding them. The figures
of the operations of the company for
June have not yet been made public, nnd
thoy mlay not be for some little time
to come, as the receivers are making tip
an annual statement that will Include
them. It dan bo stated, however, with
out fear of contradiction, tWat when the
figures for tho year are made up, they
will not Khow, as frequently asterti'd,
net earnings of more than $6,200,000, the
amount of the proposed Great Northern
The annual tatement when made up
will dhow receipts from all ssurcos of
approxlmately $6,680,782, nnd this result
has been spoken of as net earnings. It
is far from toeing that. From this
'amount must toe deducted the rentals,
which include the inters paid on Du
luth & Manitoba and Spokne & Palouse
divisional bonds, taxes and several hun
dred thousand dollars earned by branch
roads not owned or covered by Northern
Pacific mortgages, and oons'jquantly be
longing to the bondholders of those branch
Ilnea as part of their rental. The total
cf 'these IteimB for the yeir ending June
30 last 'Will not be Tar from $2,351,839. De
ducting this tfHom the tolat net receipts
as given above, 1t appears that the
net earnings aie $4,337,843, or near'y $2,
000,000 leas titan the proposed' guarantee
of the Great Northern company.
The disposition of the not earnings, as
Just shown, during the year ending June
10 was under the following hcad3: Sink
ing f imd and Interest on the first general
mortgage bonds, sinking-fund and Inter
est on the Missouri division bonds, sink
ing (fund and Interest on Pend d'Orellle

In the United States circuit court
Wednesday the case came up of Thomas
Pearsall, (stockholder nf the Grea't
Northern, owning 500 shares, against tho
Grea't Northern, to restrain that com
pany from making further attempts to
obtain VontrOl of the Northern Pacific,
upon the reorganization of the latter
company. Tho answer read in court
cites In extenso that much advantage
would accrue to the Great Northern and
Its stockholders If a close union of the
kind contemplated were entered Into be
tween the two roads, mainly through the
aquisttlon of a Mne Into Manitoba, and
connection with Portland, Or., a connec
tion Which otherwise would cost in the
neighborhood of $8,000,000. In reply, Attorney-General
Horn went Into the charter

lines and of the Northern Pacific, the ob
ject being to show that the lines were
parallel and that a consolidation Is Ille
The- culmination or defeat of this
gigantic trust will be watchedi with the
utmost Interest by all in the West. There
might some good result to the public
from the consummation of the deal, but
on general principles It does rfot teem
to be desirable or the proper and Jist
thing. Astoria and the Columbia vivnr
harbor could expect nothing from it,
unless a guarantee was given of fair
play and an agreement made to utilize
this harbor, which can hardly be ex
pected umlor present conditions. If Hill
obtains control of the Northern and
Bhould also become Interested In the re
organization of the O. R. & N., which if
Is intimated that be will d'j, and would
allow traffic to seek its natural channel,
Astoria would be largely benefited. But
it Is stated on good authority that suei
would not be the case. Even were It
so, nothing 'Would be gained particularly
that coutd not be accomplished through
trattic arrangements with the separate
companies, although It might tnke more
time to complete results. On the other
hand it is against public policy to con
solidate parallel lines of railroad under
