Monday the 12th, as hejsaid, forLincolnto

afternoon, and it will probably be sold

New Plan for Transporting: Emtgranta.
A circular has just been issued by J. W.
Morse, general passenger agent of the
Union Pacific railroad, announcing an
important change in the traveling accom
modations offered by that road. The circu
hir announces that beginning with the
date of the circular rntnh.
13th, tho third class emigrant
tickets of the road will be honored for
passage on express trains, not only over
their lines, but also over those of their
western connections. Emigrant sleeping
cars, with free births, are provided as
as before, except that these are attached
to fast express trains, instead of freight
trains, at Ogden. A passenger holding a
third class or emigrant ticket to any point
west, will now make exactly the same
time as one holding a first or second class
This is a change which tho road has
desired for years. It is esnecinHv rrot?
fymg to them, therefore, to have their
California connection follow the example
of their Oregon connection, and give their
emigrant passengers first class accommo
dations as to trains and running time.
Through emigrant passengers now hav
all the privileges of first class passengers
except stop over and Pullman sleeping
car accommodations. The patrons of the
road will appreciate the change. They
will now save two day's time between
Missouri River and California points.
The through time between Omaha nrf
San Francisco is three and one half days.
Time between Kansas City and Sn
Francisco is less than four days.
A few years ago the emigrant time
from Omaha to San Frncisco was seven
days. The change announced in this
circular reduces it to three and one-half-days.

with the superior accommodation afforded
emigrants going to California, Oregon
