Capt. W. S. Cowles, of the new
battle ship Missouri, was talking the
other day of the inferiority of Euro
pean to American railroads, says the
New York Tribune. "The stuffy
little European carriages are lighted
with oil. I have cause to remember
this. One night in Germany, dur
ing a violent storm, I was riding
toward Berlin iu a first-classcarriage,
when a leak began. Drop after
drop, warm and dirty, fell upon my
hat and coat. I waited till a guard
came through. It was a long wait.
One is always undergoing long
waits for guards on European rail
roads. 'Look here, guard,' I said
at last, 'the rain is coming through
the lamp hole and trickling down
my clothes.' The guard made an
investigation. Then he said, re
assuringly: 'Oh, that is not rain.
It's only oil. The lamp leaks a
little, but the roof is quite sound; I
assure you.' Then the whistle blew,
and he rushed away."

(lovornor Carter on AITnlrs In Up
Governor Carter assured Peter
Lee and the Galiciau settlers iu
upper Olaa last Wednesday morn
ing that the new road connecting
the upper Olaa Homesteads with
the Volcano Road at 22-railcs would
be commenced within two months.
The Governor also said he believed
he could find the money to make
immediate repairs on the Volcano
Road between 23 and 27 miles.
Governor Carter was met at the
Volcano House early Wednesday
morning by Peter Lee and was
driven over the upper portion of the
Olaa road. He also inspected the
trail leading from this road into the
Galiciau settlement. He was met
at this trail by the settlers and their
wives and their children. The
crowd numbered in all about one
hundred. Mrs. Nicolas Russcl was
present and acted as interpreter.
The Governor walked in over the
trail a short distance and found it
so usreputably muddy that he
said, fcnis'is no Government trail:
it is so !' that the Government
would 1 'ashamed to own it." He
told the settlers that there is an ap
propriation of $10,000 for their road
and that it would be located at 22
milis. He wautcd as many of the
settlers as wished to work at the
building of the road, and told them
the better they worked the better
and longer would be the road built
from the appropriation. The set
tlers asked for a school house. The
Governor said there is no money
appropriated for a school house, but
recognized the great need of one.
He was also questioned about a
church. He explained that churches
are outside the domain of the gov
ernment in America; that they could
have a many churches and as many
different kinds of religion as they
wanted, but they would have to
build their own churches.
The upper Olaa road which has
been an eyesore for three years will
have immediate attention if Gover
nor Carter has his way. He said
there' is $2,500 available at once
and he believes he can rustle enough
more to put the road in proper shape.
