who Ih confident thousands of dollars' of
Improvements will be made In Denver by
the ltock Island this year, said regarding
Mr. Wliicheirs dictum:
"It Is not the policy of high officials to
tell of Improvements before they obtain
a site. The Rock Island has several real
estate dekls on band In Denver and an of
ficial admlsnlon from Mr. Wlnchell might
cost the corporation a small fortune.
"The Rock Island practically owns the
Colorado & Eastern franchise and ter
minal?, and it is going to do big thlncs In
Denver this year."
The report that the road would build
from Llmon to Denver was based on an
alleged interview with John F. Stevens a
few days ago In Kaunas C'lt. Mr. Stev
ens Is the fourth vice-president of the
road and in charge of the construction.
Mr. Wlnchell says that Mr. Stevens was
probably misquoted. Tho Rock Island
trains now conic Into Denver from Llmon
over 1'nlon Pacific tracks. A long lease
upon the line has been granted to the
Rock Island by the ITnlon Pacific and the
facilities are ample for handling tho busi
ness of both roads. Practically all tho
Rock Island would sain by having a
track of Its own would be on the local
business In the territory between Denver
and Llmon, and this Is hardly worth considering.
AFTER CANAL BUSINESS.
Ex-Senator Harris Tells of tho Mis
sion of the X. C, M. & O.
Kansas City, Mo., Jan. 17. William A.
Harris, former T'nlted States Senator from
Kansas, has been appointed a member of

Mr. Harris, who until 1S72 had charge
of the Indian reservation and Congression

position Mr. Harris said today:

routes began a great many years ago.

mnde mo feel that access to tho Pacific
coast by the shortest route from Kansas
City was one of the most attractive prop
ositions that had ever appeared upon the
railroad map. Close reciprocal relations
between this country and Mexico are com
ing soon. The unmlstakeable trend of
public sentiment In both countries Is for it.
"The Orient road will be largely sup
plemental to the isthmian canal. A rapid
transit route from the Pacific by the near
est way will be a necessity and the Orient
will absolutely occupy toe only avnllablo
po.fitlon In this regard. It will he a
great factor, too, in the building of the
canal. Its southern end Is rich In ma
terials, In coal, iron, cement and timber
needed Jn the canal construction."
