A study of charged particle production in 147 GeV/c π-p collisions yields no evidence for an electrically neutral central region or corresponding rapidity plateau. The results do indicate that electric charge and transverse momentum may be locally conserved over small intervals on the rapidity axis. These results support a picture in which the observed hadrons are emitted in clusters whose quantum numbers vary as a function of rapidity and reflect the incident channel quantum numbers at the extremes of the rapidity scale.
