Executive officers of Western railroads will meet here next Tuesday to discuss terms of an agreement aa to the Issuance of annual passes for next year. About this time every year the' executive officers meet and agree'not to issue annual passes "to Influence trafflc." or. In plain words, not to give passe to big chipper. Th Interstate commerce law forbids the Issuance of passe to shippers, as that is equivalent in many case to paying rebate which small shipper do not secure. A regularly aa the agreement ha been mad in past year it has been broken, but it is only fair to say that every year the number of passe improperly Issued is growing less.

Opinions on the street yesterday were divided aa to th result af th new mor ot th union In adopting graded commissions. Union managers said that th beauties of the, plan and it probable results grew upon them the more they wr considered. 'and. that the word they received from th agents was all (favorable, they being delighted with the plan and allowing It to bo inferred, that they would get rid of their nocv-unlon companies. The non-union force had got their second wind- and were talking even, more hopefully of outcome to be expected than on the day before. They claimed to be gettlnc Just as good and Just a many promise a th untoa managers, said that the union had weakened Itself by It action, aatt that th net result would be that the union companies had Increased their expenses, and that what they would .gain by It would oot offset what it bad cost them.

On of them drew, attention, yesterday to th remarkable comparison between the convention of th agent and the manager, the former at Buffalo last month and the latter at Niagara last week. The agents, who dope nd upon their commission for their livelihood, declared that under existing condition they believed a lower rate of commls-aion would be for th best Interest of tb Insurance business and, therefore to their best Interest, amt declared- their willingness to accept a lower commission in order to put tb business as a wool oa a better footing. On the other hand th manager.' who have been declaring that expenses were too hsgk and) that it would be absolutely necessary to reduce them, answered the agents'- offer by Increasing commissions and expense.
