Harrlman Annuls Long- Contract With
Washington, May 0. Official infor
mation reached tho Interstate Commerco
commlialon today of tho cancellation
of a traffic agreement entered Into June
18, 1003, between tho Southern Pacific
and tho San Pedro, Los Angeles A Salt
Lnko railroad companies.
In the opinion of the commission the
abrogation of Uie agreement is of tfie
highest Importance. Tho facta con
corning it were developed at the recent
Inquiry Into tho relations or tho Houtri
era Pacific with other corporations. It
was the opinion of several Interstate
Commerce commissioners that the
agreement was In restraint of trade and
might subject tho officials who entered
into It to a prosecution under the Bhor
man anti-trust act.
Notification of the abrogation of the
agreement was received In a letter from
H. S. Lovett, of New York, general
counsol of the Southern Pacific com
pany. Mr. Lovott assigns as tho rea
son for tho action the enactment try the
California legislature of a law which
prohibits contracts restricting compe
tition. The agreement binds tho Salt Lake
mad not to cliango rotes within 09 years
without the consent of tho Southern
Pacific. Itcamo out at the Inquiry
that tho agreement extends beyond
Callforni and binds Uie Salt Lake road
to build no extentlont north of Salt
