RULES IN USE
Why Some Roads Vary From
Others In Such Reg
ulations. "On a double track system which
track do the eastbound trains use?
asked the man with a high forehead
at the lf pot last night.
"Why the .track on the right hand
aide," wild tine operating official.
"What track Is used by the west
bound .traiiis'.'" was the next query.
"Same answer," curtly replied, the
operating official, who began to sus
pect that he was being Joshed.
"I can prove you are wrong" said
a young man who had been study
tng a picture that hung on the wall.
It was aplcture of the Twentieth
Century Limited on the Lake Shore &
Jdlchigan Southern railroad. It show
ed a douoie track with the train
Deeding along on the left hand
"Here Is the Los Angeles Limited
on the Chicago & Northwestern,
aaid another man. "It's on the left
"Those are ithe exceptions,"
plained the operating officials: "The
Lake Shore ami the Northwestern
railroads use the left track. Every
other railroad m the country uses
ua ngnt nnn-a Tracn.
"Tou may be right," said a travel
ing passenger agent, "but I rode
from Holllday, Kan., to Emporia the
outer any. its unuble track all the
way and we used the left hand
Vso liCft Hand Track.
"Must have been something the
matter with the right hand track,"
growled the operating official. But
there wasn't. A division superinten
dent Joined the group and he was ap
"We use the right hand track
wherever we have double track ex
cept on the Emporia line. We change
from the right hand track to the left
track at Holllday. This exception was
originally a single track ystem. The
grades on the original line were suit
ed to westbound traffic. So we built
the second truck for eastbound
traffic. It la this peculiar condition
that makes us left handed on the
Kiclit Hum! Track.
"The right hand track is In gen
eral use by virtue of a rule adopted
by the American Railway associa
tion, which requires that all stan
dard railroads use the right track. It
was thought be to use the right
hand track for the reason that It af
fords the engineer a better oppor
turrlty to observe the Mignnla which
are In use on all double track sys
tems. It was the theory of the man
agement of the Northwestern and of
the Lake Shore that If the engineer
vu on the left hand side he could
watch both tracks. So when the rule
was adopted an exception was made
in ravor of these two lines."
Only West anil liim bound.
"Now that we have settled this
proposition let us have an ex plana.
tion why we never see anything on
official time cards concerning north-
oouna ana soutnooun-d trains." sug
gested the man who had started the
"In making up time card only
two directions are recognized," said
the operating official. "Every train
la either an enstbound or a west
bound train. The eastbound trains
carry even numbers and the west
bound trains odd numbers. FVr In
stance, a train from Coffevvtlle.
which la south from Kansas City, is
carriea as an easiununa train, and
train to Leavenworth and Omaha,
W'hioh are north of Kansas City, are
cornea as wet-tDouna inuns.

representative of the company is of
the opinion that he will sell a grent

the only thing standing in the way of

Interstate Commerce Com
mission Institutes New De
parture In System.
Washington. I). C July 24. Pos
sibly few people realize the changes
nslltuted under the Interstate com
merce commission law; nnd the
power conferred by It on the com
mission. For Instance, there has
cen a radical departure In railway
accounting, as this branch of the
business has been brought directly
under tlre supervision and control of
the Interstate commerce commission.
For a good many months past, the
commission has been almost In con
stant consultation with the American
Association of railway accounting of
ficers, regarding the contemplated
changes; and on July 1st the com
mission promulgated the first Install
ment of these changes. Wherens,
under the old system the roads
throughout the country, generally
speaking, had a classification of op
erating accounts cnlllng for sixty di
visions, this has befn changed by the
commission to ono hundred and
wenty-one divisions, and will be the
standard from this time.
The commission is empowered to
enforce Its will for a uniform sys-
em. though It Is hardly probable,
basing their future action on their
efforts up to the prfnsent time, that
they will ever use their power arbi
trarily. The genera effect will bo to in
crease the demand for disbursement
men, that Is. those familiar with dis
tribution of accounts, based on the
necessity of maintaining for the first
year the old distribution coincident
with the new Tor the benefit or com
parisons with the previous year.
Possibly only railroad accounting
men can appreciate the magnitude of
the commission's undertaking; and
certainly only rallrondlng accounting
men can estimate the enormous
amount of work Involved. There is,
however, one good thing in nil this.
that Is nn evident desire on the part
nf the railroads to co-operate with
the commission in this regard.
MEXICAN' LINES PREPARE
FOR THE RAINY SEASON'.
Mexico City, Mexico, July 24.
Preparations are now under way on
the Gulf line of the Mexican Cen
tral between Monterey and Tamplco
to forestall as far as possible the
damaging effects of the rainy season
on the roadbed of that branch. Ex
tra heavy ballast has been Installed,
and drainage gutters have been ex
cavated and re-enforced at all point3
where the rains are likely to prove
of the greatest danger to the bed.
This will prevent the accumulation of
water on the track, and by running
the water off as fast as It falls will
keep the track above water at all
Similar preparations have been un-J
der way for some time on the Chi
huahua division of the road, and It
is now In an excellent condition to
withstand the ravages of the rainy
season. The National, International
and Interoceanlc roads are also pre
paring for the advent of the rains and
will be In shape before the wet sea
son sets in.
IIARRIMAX LINES SPEND
82.IMMUMI0 IX ADVERTISING.
Chicago, III., July 24. The Harri-
man lines are preparing for the most
energetic advertising campaign In
their history, a campaign In which
more than $2,000,000 will bo expend
ed. The. heads of all of the adver
tising departments are meeting here
and discussing plans for the cam
paign. The method pursued In arriv
ing at a decision of how the money
shall be spent is unique. The publi
cations and the work of each depart
ment come In review before all of the
other departments for criticism. As
a result, many advertising 'practices
In the past are going to be abandoned
and some new features adopted. It
Is understood that the companies
have decided to do more newspaper
advertising that before, and to issue
fewer booklets of an expensive char
acter. SHORT LINE WILL HE
COMPLETED IX TWO YEARS.
rtrownwood, Tex., July 24. The
construction of the TexLeo-Drownwood
cut-off of the Santa Fe Is now in pro
gress out of Texico, N. M. It Is staled
thut grading will be started on this
end of the line in a few weeks. The
survey for the road has been finished
and the right of way obtained. The
distance between Texico and Hrown
wood is about 350 miles. For most
of this the country Is level and no
heavy construction work will be en
countered. It will take about two
years to complete the line, according
to present estimates. It will connect
with the gulf division of the Santa
Fe at Rrownwood and with the new
transcontinental line of the same road
at Texico. Jts chief Importance Is
that it will form a connecting link
in a new transcontinental route of
the Santa Fe between Galveston and
Heaumont and Pacitlc coast points.
It Is planned to eventually extend thi
system to New Orleans.
