CALIFORNIA LEAOS IN LINES
6an Pedro, Los Angeles A. Salt
Lake the Longest System
Built During Last
, Railway building In the United States
for 1904 shows a falling off of about 25
percent compared with 1903 when 6,788
miles of new road were completed. Cal
ifornia had the honor of having the
longest new road completed during the
• year In the San (|( | Pedro, Los Angeles
and Salt road, from Callente,
Nev., to Daggett.l.Cal., a distance of
298 1-2 miles. Tholofflcal returns for
the construction of. new railroads
throughout the country during the cur
rent year are not ye^ complete but
show that 4,168 miles of first track have
been laid since January first on 299
lines In 43 states and territories.
According to the last edition of Poor's
manual this would make the ralWay
mileage In the United States at the
cperUng of 1905 •zvz.wa miles. \
In a discussion of the past year's
railway building the Railway Age says:
' that there should be a decrease in con
struction work during 1904 was a fore
gone conclusion owing to the genera!
business situation. /
New Work Projected /
• "There is a large amount of nysw
work projected," It adds, '^rnucW of
which is still awaiting financing./ The
revival of business since the presiden
tial election has given an lmuetus to
railway building which promlse/s great
er activity in 1905. While th/fe day of
-parallel railway building Is/practical
ly over, there are many extensions and
feeders . projected which arte needed to
develop new trrltory anra much im
portant work designated/ to shorten
main lines and reduce j grades and
'curves has been plannecjf."
In number of miles off railroad lines
built, California rank^l ninth with a
total of 201 miles. Missouri leads with
572 miles of new lime, and Texas is
second with 312 mtyles. Five other
states besides California to show over
200 miles each, arje:. Minnesota, -271
miles; West Vlrglnl'ia, 237 miles; Missis
sippi, 299 miles; ft Pennsylvania, 220
miles, and Nevadalj 215 miles.

Wii commenting upon ' the intentions
ow the Pennsylvania railroad and the
vJtiould interests in the east the same
ff publication says: •' •
"With the exception of the 60-mile
link (of which 10 miles were completed)
to connect the Western Maryland and
the West Virginia Central & Pittsburg,
and the completion of the Plttsburg
Carnegie & Western into Plttsburg, no
work has beer> 'done during the past
" year on the various roads necessary to
complete the Atlantic seaboard line of
the Wabash system, and there are no
indications that work is to be resumed
soon on these lines. There are per
sistent rumors of an understanding be
tween the Pennsylvania railroad and
the Gould interests which will make
the construction of these lines unnec
essary, and the fact that the work is
■ still being held up lends color to them."

HOW LOS ANQELES IS TO BE SUPPLIED WITH SALT WATER
DIAGRAM OF ENOINEER'B PLANS FOR SUPPLYING LOS ANGELES WITH BEA WATER. THE RESERVOIR AT THE LEFT, 1400 FET HIGH, WOULD, ACCORDING TO THE EN

From the Pacific for Use In
Flushing Streets and
By means of a series of salt water
reservoirs situated 400 feet. Hbove ths
business district and with an emerg
ency pressure from a reservoir 1400 feet
above sea level, A. Klnney, an engineer,
would do away with the possibility o£
a disastrous lire In the city of Los An
Klnney asserts that by his method
Los Angeles would be furnished with a
fire protection, not to mention a sani
tary system more thorough than that
of any other city in the world. Tho
emergencyJ pressure from the emerg
ency reservoir, If it were installed,
would be so great, claims Klnney, that
a stream of water from the reservoir
would, tear a hole through a six- Inch
brick wall and a series of streams
without the use of a fire engine might
be thrown many hundreds of feet over
the highest buildings. In the system
nothing but hose raits would be re
quired and with what might be called
a cloud burst of salt water a fire would
be drowned out by sheer force and
Kinney has prepared plans and speci
fications for the installation of his salt
water system for fire, sanitary ana
power purposes, and with everything in
working order Angelenos with salt
water might be able to accomplish
everything but cook their food with it.
But the possibilities of having an
abundant supply of brine to be us«d
for ; sanitary purposes at an .immense
saving of fresh water would be as Im
portant as for flre protection. Other
men besides Kinney have proposed salt,
water systems for cities but the piping
of the brine, in the past, has not proved
successful. Klnney claims to have
overcome all difficulties that may have
been encountered in this direction, and
with Los Angeles equipped with his
system sees in it a modern salt water
Uses of Salt Water
"Salt water can be used in the parks,
lnltes and for "sanitary purposes," said
Kinney, throwing up his hands and
growing enthusiastic as he discussed
the scheme yesterday. "For sanitary
purposes the great benefit cannot be
expressed in words; it means the
flushing of this great sanitary highway
from Los Angeles to the sea and that
which Is now an unwashed, uncleaned
cesspool with every inch loaded with
sewer gas, with fever and other bac
teria, dangerous to human life."
In his salt water dream of Los An
geles Klnney sees free public baths
maintained at a nominal expense, swim
ming tanks for the public school chil
dren and an increase in the city water
supply so that the farmers about Los
Angeles can Irrigate their crops with
the water which he says rightly be
longs to their lands.
Klnney figures that salt water would
furnish "5 per cent of all water used
in Los Angeles and vicinity, so that the
present supply of fresh water and what
may hereafter be developed in the Los
Angeles river and its tributaries may
supply a city of 1,000,000 Inhabitants.
HELD BY BOTH JUSTICES
George Edelman Faces Two Serious
George Edelman, who was recently
brought from San Francisco on a
charge of forgery, was arraigned In
Justice . Chambers' court yesterday
morning on a charge of having passed
a forged check in Los Angeles.
The man was a teamster in Pasadena,
and is charged with having committed
the offense August 20. ■' Following the
alleged passage of the forged checks,
Edelman went to San Francisco, but
was brought back several days ago.
Edelman was held on the charge of
forgery on ' $1500 ball, , and was then
taken across the hair between the two
court rooms to Justice Austin's court,
where he was tried on a forgery charge
caul held to the superior court on $1000
The checks are said to have been
made out for $20 and $6 respectively.

STRANGER THAN FICTION
A Remedy Which Hat RevolntlonlM*
the Treatment of Stomach
The 'remedy Is not heralded us ft
wonderful discovery nor yet' a sacred
patent medicine, '.neither is It claimed
to cure anything except dyspepsia,. ln*
digestion and stomach troubles Jwlth
which nine out of ten suffer.
The remedy 'ls In the form of pleas-
ant tasting tablets or " lozenges, enn-
talnlng vegetable and fruit essences,
pure aseptic pepsin (government test),
golden seal and diastase. The 'tablets
are sold by druggists under, the name
of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets. Many
Interesting experiments to, test the di-
gestive power of Stuart's tablets show;
that one grain <of the active principle: ,
contained In them Is sufficient to thor* .
oughly digest 3000 grains of raw meat,',
eggs . and other wholesome ', food. ;.'
Stuart's Tablets do not act upon th«
bowels like after-dinner pills: and;,
cheap cathartics, which simply irri-
tate and Inflame the Intestines with- ,
out having any effect whatever In ; di-
gesting food or curing Indigestion.
If the stomach can be rested and as-;

worked as the stomach. ??CWKMMBS4
