Instances Where He Did the
Same Thing Before.
He Says the Road Makes Surveys Just
A Long Interview With a San Francisco
Newspaper Reporter—Local Rail
Charles Francis Adams, the president
of the Union Pacific, has been carrying
out his favorite policy of denying every
thing. A month before the publication
of the fact, that the Union Pacific had
bought the Denver, Texas and Fort
Worth, after the papers had all been
signed, Mr. Adams, in the most public
manner, declared that no such purchase
had ever been contemplated and would
not be made. He played the same game
over the extension from Milford south.
He denied that the road had any inten
tion of building it up to the very time
that the contracts for the line to Pioche
A day or two ago Mr. Adams spoke as
follows to a Chronicle reporter:
"My visit to the northwest was merely
the visit of inspection which I make
every year, and the matter of our exten
sions there was considered only inci
dentally. It was determined to extend
our line from Portland to Tacoma and
Seattle at once, if the step is approved
by the board of directors. Besides this
line we will build one or two little spurs
to mining districts. All reports about
other Union Pacific extensions in that
country are mere talk. The company
does not propose to build any roads ex
cept the ones I speak of. The company
has no present intention of constructing
a line into any part of California, or of
coming to San Francisco. All the re
sources at its command are required in
fields more legitimately its own. Its re
lations with the Southern Pacific Com
pany were never more friendly than at
present, and affairs here, so far as the
Union Pacific is concerned, are satis
factory. The policy of the Union Pa
cific is entirely a conservative one. We
realize, more perhaps than other lines,
that the Union Pacific and Central Pa
cific roads were constructed at the same
time, and the purpose for which they
were constructed can best be accom
plished by their acting in harmony in
stead of endeavoring each to destroy the
value of the other. When the Union
Pacific will build into this state depends
entirely on the contingencies of the
future and on the course which the
Southern Pacific adopts toward the
Union Pacific. If the Southern Pacific
continues to deal with us in the spirit
recently shown the thing is a good ways
off. Ido not think that any man con
nected with the railroads will commit
himself to any prophecy of the future.
He merely speaks ot the present under
existing conditions. It is possible that
in six months every existing condition
will be changed."
When asked about the numerous sur
veying parties now at work in Southern
Nevada and California Mr. Adams said:
"We have made surveys pretty much
everywhere. We always have parties in
the field, and run lines in every direc
tion in order that we may be fully ad
vised as to the nature and possibilities
of a country. But running a line, in
our case, does not mean that we have
any idea of constructing on it. We have
run lines into California through Utah,
Oregon and portions of Nevada, and we
have them on file in the office of the en
gineer of the company."
The intelligent reader who knows any
thing about the practices of railways
will regard this as very strange talk.
About the extension from Milford to
Pioche, Mr. Adams said:
"The construction of this line is going
forward as rapidly as possible. We al
ready had a line from Salt Lake City
south to Milford and Frisco. The ex
tension had insufficient business, and
our investigations caused us to believe
that an extension to the Pioche mining
district would justify itself in connection
with the existing road. The only im
portant extensions which the Union
Pacific is now engaged in are the line to
Pioche, 140 miles, and the one to Puget
sound, 186 miles."
Local Railway News.
General Manager Wade of the South
ern California line, has returned from
his tour of inspection.
Richard Gray, general traffic manager
of the Southern Pacific, and L. M.
Clement, former superintendent of
track, passed through the city yesterday,
on their way north.
The railway offices of the city display
a notice to the effect that rates will go
up on the 9th of June.
It is rumored that one feature of the
new division of the Santa Fe system,
growing out of the recent acquisition of
the St. Louis and San Francisco, will be
that the sphere of General Manager
Wade's operations will be enlarged to
take in the line as far as Albuquerque.
THE CASTAC CASE.
Cross-Examination of Olme Occupies a
In department 1 of the superior court
yesterday morning the Castac canon case
was resumed before Judge Cheney and
a jury, the whole day being devoted to
the cross-examination of the witness
Joseph Olme, who told a graphic story
of the shooting on Thursday last. He
testified in effect that he was born in
this county and was 20 years of age. He
was a brother-in-law of the deceased
Dolores Cook, and was living at Cook's
house. He had done some work tor
Cook, but had not received any pay for
it. He then repeated his former story
of the quarrel over the first load of lum
ber, in detail, and this took up the time
of the court until the noon recess.
On resuming the hearing after lunch,
the defense went very closely into the
positions occupied by the defendants
with relation to the shanty, and Olme
stated that Gardener stood near the door,
Chormicle being about ten paces dis
tant and within three feet of Walton.
Before they came out of the shanty the
door had been ajar, but they pushed it
open wider to allow of their coming out.
The wagon was then twenty paces from
the house, Cook being twenty-five or
thirty yards behind it. When _ Gar
dener came out with a loaded rifle in his
hand, the witness was seven or eight
paces from the house.
An effort was made at this juncture to

show that the witness had told James
Heffner, a farmer residing at Elizabeth
lake, that Chormicle was unarmed at
the time of the first scuffle, but this the
witness denied. Olme acknowledged
that he had testified before Justice
Austin that the shanty in question be
longed to Chormicle, but stated that he
had since learned that Juan Liebes
■claimed it as his. The defense dwelt at
considerable length upon the fact that
there was a patch of growing volunteer
barley near the house, and questioned
the witness very closely as to whether
or not Walton drove the wagon over the
barley in hauling the lumber. Olme ad
mitted that they had driven through
the barley, but insisted that they
followed a wagon trail, which had been
used prior to the occasion when the
Then the story of the shooting was
repeated and gone into minutely. Olme
was positive that Chormicle did not
come out of the house before the shots
were fired, and tell Walton to take his
lumber away. He insisted upon his
statement that both defendants fired
from the inside of the house and that he
could see them; and when asked who
shot Cook, he said: "Gardener shot
Cook. It couldnot have been Chormicle,
because I distinctly saw Gardener shoot
him." In reply to a question by the
court as to what the man and boy were
doing all this time at the side of the
house, Olme stated that the old man re
mained sitting down, and the boy stood
at his side. Cook's pistol was produced
and identified by the witness, who was
then closely questioned with regard to
how he carried it and where it was
found, and at this juncture court ad
journed until tomorrow morning.
THE PARK BOARD.
It Decides to Reduce Expenses to a
At a special meeting of the board of
park commissioners held in the mayor's
office at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon
there were present Chairman Hazard
and Messrs. Hubbell and Hutton.
The payroll of the department for the
month of May, amounting in the aggre
gate to $1,823.99, was approved.
A number of demands, amounting to
$114.48, were also approved.
In response to a communication from
the city clerk, the park superintendent
was instructed to notify all employees of
the department that all moneys collected
must bejiaid over to the citv'treasurer.
The offer of the Y. M. C. A. to sell one
of the large fountains, recently used at
the pavilion during the flower festival,
delivered at Seventh-street park, for the
sum of $C 5, payable in six months, was
The city clerk having notified the
board that the park fund was exhausted,
the superintendent was instructed to
stop all improvements and to discharge
all men not absolutely rerpaired to keep
the present growth in the parks alive.
A recommendation was also made to the
council to credit the department with
$5,000, the board preparing to cut down
the expenses of the department to the
lowest possible limit, which was esti
mated at $1,000 per month.
