September 14, 1889  The "Soo" Road  Cuts The Passenger Rate to the East  The South Shore May Follow Suit  St. Paul, Mn., September 12.- To-day it was announced that the "Soo" would put in a rate of $20 to New York and $19 to Boston; a proceeding which wipes out completely the rate between Chicago and St. Paul, as the rates quoted are those now in effect over the differential lines from Chicago to the east.  What will be done by the Chicago lines remains to be seen, but some action will probably be taken by the Western States Passenger Association, now in session in Chicago.  It is expected the unless some adjustment is made the Chicago rates will be utterly demoralized.  General Passenger Agent Hibbard, of the South Shore, who is in the city, could not state positively that his road would meet the "Soo" rates, but did not doubt that General Manger Fitch would authorize a corresponding reduction.  An inquiry at the other offices elicted noncommital replies.  DSS and A C and NW CM and StP MStP and SSM Passenger
