BUILD LARGER CARS.
Harrlman Has Plan to Best Hill On
Omaha, Neb., Dec. 19. tf, H. Har.
ximan, to keep up with bis rival, J. J.
Hill, olans to spend over $1,000,000 in
equipping the Union Pacific railroad
with newly designed freight cars, built
especially to carry lamber. About 1,
000 of tiiese curs are to be ordered fiom
tbe Pittsburg Prereed Steel Car com
pany. at $1,000 each.
When put In service they will be
used solely for carrying lumber. They
will have twice the capacity for that
purpose of the present car, and will
thus enable the Onion Pacific to lower
its lumber carrying rates. Mr. Hill
will be forced to do likewise and will
probably be forced to equip bis lines
with the new style cats to keep from
losing money. The now cars will carry
60,000 feet, against 20,000, the capacl
ty of cars now used.

of the hearing lies in the fact that it
is the first attempt of the commission
to regulate the boslnow of the Pullman
