The Joint Traffic Association, through I
committee consulting of President
Thompson of the Pennsylvania and Pres-
has succeeded In bringing sufficient pre'
sure to bear upon the Baltimore & Ohio
rood to stop cutting freight rates and
prevent the threatened dissolution of the
association. The committee conferred
with Receivers Murray and Cowan of
the Baltimore A Ohio at the offices of
the Joint Traffic Association here" last
night. They were authorised to use any
power that was necessary In order to
adjust the situation. The Baltimore &
Ohio was the agressor In cutting rates.
but as the receivers were not a party
to the association agreement. It was diffi
cult to reach them, both because a com
pany In the hands of the court la not
supposed to be a party to a pooling ar
rangement, and because the supreme
court decision holding that all traffic
agreements similar to the Trans-Missouri
Association are Illegal.
Ever since the receivership of the Bal
timore & Ohio, officials have been active
In securing as targe a tonnage as pos
sible, regardless of the percentage to
which the company Is entitled under the
pooling arrangement. Its allotted share
of West-bous4 freight Is T.4 per cent, s
the actual tonnage carried by It during
the last three months is said to have
averaged nearly twice that amount, the
loss falling on the Erie and Pennsylva
nia railroads. The receivers made the
excuse that they were not members of
the association and could not be held
to the agreement that bound the f irmer
management of the company. The other
companies answered this claim by snylrg
that If tt came to a scramble for business
the Baltimore & Ohio would be com
pelled to carry traffic at a loss and the
result would be disastrous to a!! con
cerned. The discontent among the trunk
lines became so great at the unfair ad
vantage taken by the Baltimore & Ohio
because of It being tn the hands of the
court, that It resulted (Inally In a de
mand being; made by certain of the
other companies that there be a readjust
ment of tonnage or ratee so that the
companies falling behind would have a
chance to make up their losses.
8UU others suggested a settlement In
money as the only way In which the
competitors of " the Baltimore & Ohio
would ever be able to even up percent'
ages. But this, of course, the courfs
would not sanction, and the suggestion
was dropped. What other Influences were
brought to bear which caused the re
celver to agree to conform to the ex
Isting rates without being members of
the association have not become known.
The result was a surprise to everybody.
8everal other companies charged with
cutting rate had stated at a recent meet
ing that If the Baltimore V Ohio would
restore rates they would do the same
The demoralisation will, therefore, end
The tonnage remains to be adjusted
according to the amount formerly al
lotted under the pool

SPEAKER REED THREATENED.
Letter Received Yesterday and Turned
Over to the Police to Investigate.
Washington, June .Speaker Reed,
like every other public man tn a high
official station, has received threatening
letters from time to time, but never has
paid any attention to them. Yesterday,
however, one was received of such a
nature that It seemed to Command more
than ordinary attention, and the speak
er's private secretary, without Mr. Reed's
knowledge, turned it over to the police,
who, after Inveetlgatlon. have come to
the conclusion that It was written by
some one desirous of perpetrating a hoax
for senatorial purposes.
This afternoon Police Inspector Hollln-
berger conferred with District Attorney
Davis and concluded that there was no
law covering the case. The writer ac
cordingly will not be areeted.

written on an envelope or on a postal

Agent Stouch at the Tongue river reser

but Is handicapped by the presence of
the sheriff, but will ask the sheriff to
withdraw from the reservation, anj If
he refuses, will order him off.
He says the Indians have behaved well

agent has been telegraphed to note the
wired Instructions of last night from
the Interior department directing htm to
co-operate with the civil authorities and
us every effort to avert further trouble.
That Captain Stouch has shown himself
able to handle the difficulty, the officials

Virginia Coal Pits Quit
Pittsburg, June 2. The national execu
tive board of the United Mine Workers
of America have decided to order a gen
eral strike throughout Pennsylvania,
Ohio and West Virginia, to secure the 4
cent rate for mining.
More than 50.000 miners will be affected
by the order, and a desperate struggle
between the men and operators will re
sult The order, It Is said, has been decided
on because of the fact that thirteen of
the large cool companies In the ntts
