Northern Pacific Complications
Being Straightened.
John II. Egan the Compromise Ulaii
He Has an Enviable Record
Throughout the U.S.
Many A&Drliains will remember Mr. John
M. Eagan, the St.' Paul railroad manager
who wias here in the city a few months
ago and who was appointed by the court
In Portland receiver of the Oregon Short
Line, but whbse appointment was not
conflrmed by the court In Utah, Mr.
Eagan Is well known througlhout tho
United States as one of the abtast rail
road managers in the country. He Is now
lllcery to become one of the receivers ot
the Northern Pacific. In speaking of the
matter the Chlloago Tribune says:
With the view of keeping the expenses
of managing the affairs of the Northern
Pacific railway within reasonable limits
the reorganization committee, It Is said,
favors the appointment of not more than
thiree receivers for the entire system.
and John M. Eagan may be one of them.
Several of the members of tho reorganiza
tion committee and their attorneys, are
now on their wiay here for the purpose ot
reconciling the differences between the va
rious courts in the West, and to get them
to unite upon three receivers in the In
terots of the holders of the bonds secured
by the second and third consolidated
Messrs. Burleigh and Galloway, who
ave been appointed receivers by the
United States courts of Washington and
Itfa.tK, are satisfactory to the bondholders
and will no doubt be retained. A new
nan has lately been suggested as a most
suitable man for receiver, one who would
gve satisfaction to all concem.jd, and be
better qualified to unite with the other
bww receivers In the manigvmcnt of the
property tman any one else who has thus
far been suggested or named. It is John
M. Eagan, formerly president and general
manager of the Gbfcarro Great Wet era
railway. Mr. Eagan has be.n connected
with the management of railroads in the
Northwest for many years and is conald
ered one of the best and a hi ant railroad
managers In the country. He is a man ot
high standing and undoubted honesty and
integrity. .
About nine months ago Mr. Eagan was
appointed receiver for Wre Oregon Short
Lane and Utah Northern, but as the bond
holders of that road failed to fulfil the
conditions imposed by the United States
court of Utah that road reverted back to
the Union Pacific and Mr. Eagan was not
given a chance to qualify. Mr. Eagan's
appointment as one of the receivers ot
the Northern Pacific would prove a hnooy
solution of existing complications, and he
wouM in every way be qualified to take
active charge of and conduct the opera
tlon of the road.
