Victoria, April 29.��� Unless the Dominion government acts as it did when

yeara ago the White Pass road has
scored the first point iu the light with
ihe C P. u. Before the steamer Princess May left here on Thursday night
ltle local Officials were not instructed
with regard to hilling freight for Interior points and through bills of lading
were given whieh, it is now found, tlie
White Pass company will not recognize.
The C. P. H. steamer is held at Vancouver owing to the disagreement, and
unless some arrangement is readied the
northern freight will he discharged and
only cargo for coast ports taken north,
li. W. Greer, gtaeial freight agent of
tlie C. P. K. and W. B. Lanigan, assistant iieigiit traffic mauager. have been
holding meetings with A. L. Perdue,
general manager ami W. B, King, traf-
hc manager of the White Pass & Yukon
route at Vancouver, but have failed to
come to auy agreement. The White
Pass officials will not make any agreement to accept through bills of lading
lor freight on lhe steamer Princess May
unless the C. P. U. sigus tlie joint
Height   tariffs.
The White Pass and Yukon route
some years u^o similarly refused to
grant through bills of lading for
freight sent by the steamer Venture.
The owners of the Venture telegraphed
to the Dominion government and, as the
railroad in the north is under the control of the railroad board, wheu a telegram came back from Ottawa asking
for an explanation as to why bills of
lading had been refused to the Venture
the officials concluded they would carry
the fight no further and the bills were
Last season Ihe C. P. R. refused to
become a party to a joint tariff agreement but throughout the year the White
Pass accepted Ihe through bills of lading
'sstied by the company. This year, however, the White Pass will not recognize
any through billing of any company not
a party to the tariff arrangements. The
C. P. R. refuses to sign the agreement
and if both companies remain firm the
fur Is expected to fly somwhere within
the   next ten   days.
There are many factors In the trouble
and there are many conjectures as to
what the result will be. O-xVthe other
hand it is declared that the difficulty
dates back to the time some weeks ago
when the Alaska Steamship company
iried unsuccessfully to get the C. P. R.
to keep its steamers out of the Ketchikan and Juneau and that the influences
of Mr. Charles E. Peahody, president of
the Alaska Steamship company, ts now
being swung to make the position of
the 0. P. R. as uncomfortable as possible. On the other hand it is declared
lhat Peahody Is not in any way Interested tn the matter of negotiations between the White Pass and the C. P. R.
