Now York, July 32. The Herald
lays: A deal la under way involving
the combination of at least four prom
inent railroads, and perhaps two or
three mors, making a complete trunk
line from the Atlantic to the Pacific.
The scheme involves a merging of sev
eral of the properties in which Kuhn,
Loeb A Company, E. H. Huirlman and
Bpeyer & Company are Interested, and,
with their friends, exert a controlling
influence." v
Among these properties are the Un
ion Pacific, the Illinois Central and
tbe Chicago As Alton, the Chicago Ter
minal Transfer Comapny, the Oregon
Short Line.the Oregon Railway & Nav
igation Company and the Baltimore
& Ohio. It is asserted in some quar
ters that the Great Northern will come
In, but this It considered doubtful, al
though James J. ilili is closely asso
ciated with several of the gentlemen
who are prominent in tbe railroads
Tblt combination will give a com
pact system, aud will bring about a
revolution in traffic alliance. The Un
ion Paclfio la the keystone. Itt olosest
connection at present it the Chicago &
Northwestern, and , for long time it
bat been the "prevailing opinion in
Wall street thai the Vanderbilts would
attach both the Northwestern and the
Union Pacific, and weie not aware un
til a few weeks ago of what was going
on. The Northwestern directors have
hurriedly considered the advisability
of extending their Fremont branch to
Ogden to a connection with tbe Central
Pacific, which it controlled by the
Southern Pacific. Cut off from tbe
Union Paclfio. the Northwestern will
find no toad to turn to for Pacific
coast business that doet not parallel

Thus, with the Northwestern ex
tending its Fremont, Elk Horn & Mis

Ogden, in order to fight the Union Pa
cific, and the Northern Paoifio forced to
protect itself against the Oregon lines,
which have recently been acquired by
the Union Pacific, there is likely to be

New Yor, July 24. Colonel Robert
G. Ingersoll died at his home, Walston-on-lludson,
near Dobb's Ferry, today,
His death was sudden and unexpected,
and re-ulled from heart disease, fioin
which he had suffered since 1890. In
that year, during the republican na
ional convention, he was taken ill and
bad to return home. ' He never fully
recovered from the attack of heart dis
ease, and was under the care of physi
cians constantly.
For the last three days, Mr. Ingorsoll
had not been feeling well. Last night
he was in better health and spent a
portion of the evening playing billiard!
with Walston H. Brown, bis son-in-law,
and C. P. Farrell, his brother-in-law
and private secretary. He seemed
to be in better health and spirit! when
he retired than he bad been tor several
Thii morning he rose at the usual
hour and joined the family at break
fast. He then laid he had spent a bad
night, but felt better. He had been
suffering from abdominal paint and
tightness about the chest. He did not
think his condition at all dangerous.
After breakfast he telephoned to Dr.
Smith, hia physician, who is at Bell
Haven, and told him of bii experience
duriug tbe night. Dr. Smith told him
to continue the use of nitro glycerine,
and that lie would see him during tiie
day. Colonel Ingorsoll spent tbe morn
ing swinging in a hammock and sitting
on the veranda with the members of
hit family. He laid be was better and
had no pain.
At 12:30 be itarted to go op stairs.
On reaching the bead of the stairi, Col
onel Ingesroll tnrned into bit wife'i
room. Mri. Ingersoll was there. To
gether they discussed what they woold
have for luncheon, and Colonel Inger
soll said be bad better not eat much,
owing to the trouble with bii stomach.
He seemed in good spirit! then.
After talking for a few minutes, Col
onel Ingersoll crossed the room and sat
down In a rooking chair. Mrs. Inger
soll asked hlin bow he was feeling, and
be replied: "Oh. better." These
were hii last words. A second after
they were uttred be was dead. The
only sign noticed" by Mrs. Ingersoll was
that the whites of his eyes suddenly
showed. There was not even a sigh or
a groan as death came. Doctors were
hastily called, but their veidiot waa
that death had come instantly.
Jobbara Dla.atl.flad With tha Demor
alisation of Trad a.
Chicago, July 34. The "factor"
plan in tbe distribution ot refined
sugar that is. on teimi dicUted by
the sugar trust is in jeopt rdy and
may be dissolved at any time. A
meeting of wholesale grocer l and job
bers heretofore interated in furtheiing
the plana of the American Sugar Re
finery Company, wai held at tbe Com
mercial Exchange, and the trade situa
tion ai affecting sugar was discussed
The thing sought to be accomplished
was either wavs and means of potting
a atop to the present demoralisation in
the trade, or the abandonment of tha
factor and the substitution of "what ia
known aa tbe "equality" plan, under
the operation . of which a jobber regu
lates hii own prices.
The present trouble began sereral
months ago, when jobbers showed a
disposition to break away from the
thralldom of the truat. The bars were
let down later by the Havermeyer tes
timony, that the factor plan had been
abandoned. Western grocers then de
cided to get together and agree to woik
uniformly on somo clan satisfactory to
all jobbing interests.

day, Admiral Dewey, when asked what
he expected would be developed for
the international peace confeience at
The Hague, said:
"Who is to disarm first? The exper
iment wai tried in the United Statea,
aud loos what it cost ui to get ready
iu time and how we had to feat the
lsiAie. We now think differently, and
are building 40 men-of-war. We shall
not be taken by aurprise and found
unprepaied again; and it is hard to be
lieve, in view ot our terrifio exertion!,
that the other powera will abandon the
advantage of their armaments and give
thorn up."
