Transcription of newspaper article from the Daily mining journal (Marquette, Mich.), Feb. 15, 1889, regarding the Duluth, South Shore, and Atlantic Railway Company., Electronic reproduction of: Transcription from Daily mining journal (Marquette, Mich.), Feb. 15, 1889., Source:  The Mining Journal Marquette, Michigan February 15, 1889  Waiting for the South Shore.  Much has been said in the paper recently of the proposed agreement between the presidents of great railroads of the west, a huge combination for the preservation of rates and the circumvention of the inter-state commerce act.  The Wisconsin Cnetral railroad is one of the seven lines that have not signed the presidents' agreement.  The Wisconsin Central, Burlington and Quincy, Fort Scott and Gulf and Denver and Fort Worth roads all claim to be in favor of the agreement but will not sign it unless the Kansas and Texas, Burlington and Northern and Illinois Central join in the movement.  The Burlington and Norhtern still insists that it will not sign unless the Soo Line, Duluth, South Shore and Atlantic, Minneapolis and Eastern and St. Paul and Duluth agree to become members of the new association.  These four roads are not named in the agreement, and it is not believed that they can be induced to join, especially is this true of the Duluth, South Shore and Atlantic and Soo Lines which are practically free from the restrictions placed on other roads by the inter-state commerce law.
