A Switchman Injured at the
San Pedro Yards.
A NUMBER OF APPOINTMENTS.
The Office of General Master
Mechanic of the S. P.
Frank Watts, a switchman in the em
ploy of the Southern Pacific, had his left
foot badly mashed by a switch engine in
the San Pedro yards yesterday morning
at 9 o'clock. He was at work and had
thrown a switch and when about to leap
on the running board in front of the en
gine he tripped over a hoop that was by
the side of the track. He luckily steadied
himself sufficiently to escape from falling
across the rails, but could not escape al
together and bis foot was badly mashed.
His injuries were temporarily tended on
the spot and he was then brought to this
city and conveyed to his home at 471
THE POMONA AND ELSINORE.
I* Is Said That It Will Soon Be
A statement is made crediting Col.
Fred Srocker with saying that the Pom
ona and Elsinore road will be built as
soon as the rails which are now on the
way arrive. If this is so it seems that
the statement made some time ago to the
effect that the Pacific Improvement
Company had contracted to build the
road is correct. The line is already
graded from Pomona to South Riverside,
and if the original survey is followed it
•will run on to Elsinore and to the War
ner Ranch, where connection can
be made with the Cuyamaca line to
San Diego. It will be remembered that
on the occasion of Colonel Fred Crocker's
visit to Southern California some three
months ago, he in company with Chief
Engineer Hood of the Southern Pacific
went over the survey in carriages. He
was rather reticent on the subject on bis
return, but said tbat be did not think
that the road would be built right away.
Other correspondence relative to the
matter has, however, been going on since
that time, and it is possible tbat the ar
rangements for construction have been
The Southern Pacific Hard Up for
The Southern Pacific is getting in a
tight corner again for rolling-stock, and
this time the demand is for box cars.
Last year locomotives enough could not
be obtained to move the business and 175
new ones were obtained from the East, so
there is no further distress in that quar
ter. But the enormous demand for
freight cars has proved more than the
supply, and although a large number
have been ordered from the Eastern
shops they cannot be turned out fast
enough. The through freight from the
East, in connection with the Sunset
Steamer service is heavier than ever be
fore in the annals of the company, and
then again the increased grain and
other productions of California necessi
tates a larger supply of cars for shipping
purposes. In the northern part of the
State the grain is at many stations
dumped near by until cars can be ob
tained. The empties are rushed through
as soon as possible, but even this is of
not sufficient avail. Every effort is be
ing made by Traffic Manager Stubbs
however, to remedy ths evil, and the
first of a large order of new cars is ex
pected very shortly from the East and
will help to alleviate the situation.
HIS FIRST CIRCULAR.
Changes made by Superintendent
The newly appointed Superintendent
of Motive Power and Machinery on the
Southern Pacific has issued his first cir
cular, which reads as follows:

A CHANGE OF OFFICE.
J*lr. Horubeck to Co the Traffic
Mr. Charles Hornbeck has resigned
bis appointment as Chief Clerk in the
Superintendent's office of the Southern
Pacific at San Fernando street to accept
a position in the Traffic Department at
No. 202 Main street. During Mr. Horn
beck's incumbency of two and a-half
yearb in the office he is leaving he has
made a brilliant record, and it can bs
aafely said that he has made a friend of
everyone with whom he has come in
contact. When he announced his resig
nation and also his retirement from the
secretaryship of the Southern California
Loan Association it was thought
by many of his acquaintances that
he was about to leave the city but they
are glad now to bear that such is not tbe
case. He will be succeeded in the San
Fernando street office by Mr. F. E.
Prior, who is at present the private sec
retary of General Hewitt.
The following Pullman passengers left
yesterday for San Francisco and the

Mr. Hall, Mr. Sicknor.
A circular was received in the Santa
Fe offices yesterday announcing that Mr.
W. B. Biddle, who has hitherto filled the
position of Division Freight and Passen
ger Agent of the Atlantic and Pacific,
with headquarters at Albuquerque, is
THE LOS ANGELES DAILY HERALD: TUESDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 11, 1888.
promoted to Assistant General Freight
Agent of the Atchison system, with
headquarters at Topeka, Kas. Mr.
Biddle is well known in this city as he
has had occasion to make a good many
business trips here, and his many friends
are glad to hear of his deserved good
Au \c<nt Appointed by the s. p. Nt
Traffic Manager J. C. Stubbs, of the
Southern Pacific, has issued a circular
appointing Mr. W. S. Neimyer general
western freight and passenger agent of
the Southern Pacific and of the Mexican
International Railroad. His headquar
ters are to be at Chicago and his terri
tory extends from Pittsburgh and
Buffalo, and on the north of the Ohio
River to and including Kansas City.
The Southern Pacific office at Cincinnati
is to be continued, however, with Com
mercial Agent Asa Kellogg in charge.
Mr. Neimyer's location is deemed to be
on account of the ill-feeling felt toward
the Southern Pacific by the Chicago
merchants on account of the new freight
tariff and the position regarding it of the
company and it is expected that Mr.
Neimyer will very soon restore harmoni
Taken To His Home.
The remains of McMicbael, tbe brake
man who was killed on Saturday in the
San Fernando tunnel, are to be taken
East by his cousin Mr. Tonner, to Kings
ley, Kas., the former home of the de
ceased and the place where his relatives
now reside. McMichael bore the repu
tation of being one of the most indus
trious men in the company's service.
The Tariff Trouble.
The tariff situation is practically un
changed, the only recent development
being the following notice, issued by the
Northern Pacific Company: "Through
freight rates to and from Pacific Coast
terminals and Eastern points, as shown
in tariffs 8 to 10, inclusive, are good via
the Northern Pacific, and will be pro
tected by that line."
A Quiet Bay.
Yesterday was a quiet day in railroad
circles. As far as possible Admission
Day was observed, although none of tbe
public accommodations were hampered.
The offices at San Francisco and along
ttie line were closed, but in this city
there was too much business on hand to
be able to do this completely.
A Rumored Change.
A report is current tbat Mr. H. H.
Shepperd, tbe Pacific Coast agent of the
Chicago and Alton, is to be transferred
to Denver, to take tbe agency there. He
will in all probability be succeeded on
the coast by Mr. Frank High.
Mr. J. B. McCormick, of the D. and O.
road, is in the city.
Mr. B. H. Barrows, chief of the library
department of the Union Pacific, is visit
ing the Coast.
Colonel Scott, of the Burlington road,
has returned from his business trip in
the Southern cities.
Mrs. McKellar, wife of the master
mechanic at the Needles, is passing a
few days in the city.
Mr. J. B. Griffin, train-dispatcher at
the Needles for the Atlantic and Pacific,
is in town on business.
Train Fo. 17 was delayed on the north
ern division yesterday, and was an hour
late ia reaching this city.
Trainmaster J. Thompson is rapidly
recovering from the attack of poison oak
that he contracted up north.
The ship Nevens has arrived at San
Pedro from England with 1,912 tons of
coal for the Southern Pacific.
Fires have been again raging in the Cen
tral Pacific snowsheds, and 1,200 feet are
reported burned out near Truckee.
Col. C. F. Crocker is credited with
saying "his father's money would be
kept in the lines and properties he had
helped to create."
The special train to Santa Monica was
well patronized yesterday, and the gen
eral travel to the coast points was far
above the average.
The Southern California Motor Com
pany's roadbed is graded from Uolton to
Riverside. The completion and opera
tion of the road will soon occur.
