His Narrow Kscape
An engineer on the Fort Worth and Den
ver tells a story of a narrow escape When
tho storm which accompanied thejwater
spout that did so much damage burst he
was pulling a train between Chilhcothe and
Quanah He pulled out of Chillicothe on
time but soon after the rain came down in
sheets and he says he could hardly see his
smokestack It was as though somebody
was emptying barrels of water on the
encine Ho walked over all bridges ahead
of his engine and progress was necessarily
very slow and careful When he got to the
tank or where he thought the tank ought
to be threequarters of a mile from Quan
ah he concluded he would stop and recon
noiter He climbed down and went ahead
and in less than forty feet distance came upon
the break through which ntorrentof water
was rushing His train laid there five days
Ho and a friend were anxious to get to
Quanah It was only three quarters of a
mile away but the yawning chasm was
simply awful They finally crossed by se
curing a fifty foot rojie each tying an end
around his body Ono man braced himself
while the othcrplungcd into the stream and
managed to get across The other then
followed the same tactics reversed being
pursued That engineer expresses the
opinion that railroading in Texas is a very
pleasant occupation except when it hap
pens to rain
Their Earnings
The showing made by the railroads of the
United States is a very satisfactory one
notwithstanding the dull season It shows
that as a rule rates have been more firmly
maintained and though the tonnage has
been less tho absence of revenuesmashing
rate wars has had a very noticeable effect
Tho Wall SteetNews says We have
passed through what may be considered
one of the crucial months iu the current
year so far as railroad eirnings are con
cerned It was generally expected that
there would be an appreciable falling off in
March and certainly in April but it ap
pears that tho roads have held their own
during the month of May as compared
with an enormous increase in the month of
May last jear and that too when the
month this year contained five Sundays
naturally entailing a reduction of a little
more that 3 per cent in tlio monthly earn
ings There must be a very strong and
healthy growth of gcucral business which
has sufficed to overcome the depression in
tho iron and coal trade naturally contingent
upon the coke strike although where the
earnings for May of last year showed a
larger increase over the previous May tian
was ever known before paying nearly 13
per cent there is a slight gain this year In
fact the earnings in May this year on a
much smaller number of roads are very
nearly as large as they were lin jMay past

cific which last year liad a gain of 3S000
has this year a loss of 790jb The Louis
ville and Nashville last year had a gain of
SlWOOO andthis year a loss of 9SOOO and
yet the total number of roads reporting
show an aggregate gain as compared with
previous years and that without any more
important contributions than J265C00 from
the Canadian Pacific S114000 from the
Great Northern and 100000 from the Wa
bash Considering the large figures of the
previous years we may reasonably expect
that the June statement will not be less
satisfactory and from that time onward
wo shall certainly look for an improve
ment Showing hott steady the earnings
have been it mav be added that for the
fourth week in May eightyeight roads
showed a loss of 2 per cent while in tho
first week in Juno thirtyseven roads
showeda gain of 2 per cent and that in
spite of the serious losses on the Grand
Trunk and the Louisville and Nashville

The Alton is a Winner
Special to the Gazette
New York June 10 A Western passen
ger agent in sieaking of tho Altons cut in
passenger rates yesterday says I am
very sorrj to hear the news Our passen
ger earnings have been constantly increas
ing but this is tho end unless Chairman
Blanchard finally agrees with everyone else
and acknowledges the total failure of the
boycott Let mo tell you how it will work
We get say 11 as our proportion of a
through ticket from Kansas City to New
York The boycott debars the Alton from
participating in through rates and to meet
the situation it makes a local rate from
Kansas City to Chicago of S10 This cuts
the regular local rate 250 Somo lino will
ask and immediately obtain permission
to meet the Alton rate
This will not be in a day before the
Alton will make a 9 local rate Wo will
all be forced to meet that The Alton will
then go a dollar better and so on until we
are compelled to carry passengers at an
actual loss in which event the rates will
go down via St Louis and the Wabash and
Mapleleaf lines will carry the reduction to
Toledo and Detroit In any event lines east
of Chicago would have to Join us in lower
ing the through tariff and every rate be
tween the Missouri and the Atlantic will be
reduced Before the rates go to the bottom
millions of dollars in revenue will bo lost
and the Alton which is better ablo to stand
its share than any of the others will not
lose one dollar where tho balance of us lose
a hundred The only possible way out is
for eastern roads to get together acknowl
edge tho mistake of the boycott and declare
it off It is utterly impossible to down the
Alton and to continue the attempt will
bankrupt all of us

Special to the Gazette
Pauls Tallet I T June It The
Chickasaw militia composed of about one
hundred well armed Indians are in camp
near Pauls Talley Their intention is to
drive tho intruders out of their country
Their movement is delayed a few days on
account of high water They will march to
Parr a place about fortyfive miles west
where they will bo joined by government
troops
Governor Byrd arrived this morning to
see what the general feeling of the people
was in this matter There is nearly one
fourth of the population in the Chickasaw
Nation intruders and before they submit to
leave their crops and homes serious trouble
is looked for
Governor Byrd said ho did not look for
much trouble as tho government would
furnish them all the troops necessary and
all they wanted was what was right
A message was received from Col Carl
ton from Fort Sill saying they were de
layed on account of high water but would
be at Parr by the 20th
A LATER ACCOCXT
Special to the Gazette
The Indian militia arc with us Thirty
brave joung bucks with their teamsters
cooks etc under the command of Capt
William iBowland of Courtney Flats
reached here last night and are now en
camped in a wagonyard on tho outskirts of
the town The second company under the
command of Albert Lewis of Tishomingo
are camped just opposite here on the banks
of the Washita waiting patiently for the
swollen waters of that briny stream to go
down before the braves can cross The lat
ter company is nearly all fullblooded
Chickasaws and can speak but little if
any English Governor Byrd and Indian
Agent Bennett together with D O Fisher
having charge of the supplies Permit
Collector McClann and Indian Police Bud
T Kell are stopping at the National hotel
Both companies of militia are well armed
and mounted and look prepared for a siege
of war Your reporter visited their cam
this morning while the braves were breaEP
fasting on bacon flapjacks and coffee after
which he sought Agent Bennett and had
quite a lengthy talk with him over the situ
ation hero and the ejectment question
Agent Bennett had just finished a hearty
breakfast and greeted your reporter pleas
antlv When asked to state tho object of
his visit to this section tho agent replied
I am here under instructions from the
United States governmeut to investigate
affairs and eject or put out if necessary
those persons living hero unlawfully who
refuse to take out permits from the Indian
government
He stated that the number of intruders is
much smaller than at first supposed and
that since tho question has been agitated
most of the noncitizens have come forward
and taken out permits Those who have
made an honest effort to secure them and
those who are unablo financially at the pres
ent time to take out the same will bo given
time in whicl to do so and dealt with very
liberally Indeed there is no certainty that
auy ejectments will bo madeaud if any per
sons really are put out which now looks
doubtful nothing is to hinder them turning
to the territory again at their pleasure
When questioned as to how long he ex
pected to remain in this section on tho out
ing business tho agent replied thrt if he
found tho situation in other parts of the
territory as it is around Pauls Valley his
stay in these parts will be of very short du
ration He further stated that all persons
holding permits secured from a Chickasaw
citizen whether an authorized peraiit col
lector or not will bo allowed to remain
There is no question that a great many
permits have been issued illegally and tho
returns from some confiscated for personal
gain by tho citizen issuing the same Agent
Bennett is in no way connected with tho
Indian miliatia They are under the com
mand of Governor Bird and will bo used
only to enforce the national law violated
by eitbens of the Chickasaw Nation Gov
ernor Byrd Agent Bennett and tho militia
were expecting to leavo here some time
during the day for Parr but the agent is
just in receipt of a message from Muskogee
stating that owing to the swollen waters of
Beaver creek the Unitrd States troops will
not reach Parr until tho 20th inst so the
militia will likely remain here for the day
Agent Bennett could not say the course
they would pursue from Parr but it will be
in a southerly direction
Governor Byrd expressed tho opinion
they would work from Parr direct to Heal
ton some thirty miles duo west of Ard
more
