Tho Altons Scheme
W II Abel no relative of Mr Cain
however one of those jolly fellows known
as traveling passenger agents was in the
city yesterday distributing new advertising
matter for tho Chicago and Alton He says
the Alton is still running trains and occa
sionally hauls a passenger even though tho
boycott has compelled it to purchase a new
line of thirty chair cars to handle the busi
ness The advertising he is distributing is
something unique On tho title page is a
cut of a tram laboriously engaged in writ
ing a valuable testimonial as follows
Kansas City June 21st lS91
Mr J Charlton Esq g P a Chicago Al
ton R It
i have just trampt over the Chicago
Alton R U from Chicago to kansas city
and found it the Rockiest rode i ever
walked on Yours truly A Walkek
The significance of this is the better un
derstood when it is stated that every mile
of the triangle between Chicago St Louis
and Kansas City is rock ballasted accord
ing to the following plan given in an edi
torial in the Railway Age
Few better evidences are to be found of
the prosperity and iKjpularity of a railway
than the possession of a thoroughly well
ballasted and well maintained roadway
Roado that continue to use a dirt bal
lasted track cannot expect to compoto
in respect to speed safety and comfort of
passengers with those enjoying a solid stone
ballast well settlel by years of service and
brought to perfect grade and alignment by
constant and skilful attention A
skimped ballasting gives an appearance
of poverty and does not accomplish tho re
sults obtained from a liberal supply of
stone evenly broken into cubes that will
pass through a two and onehalf inch ring
thoroughly tamped under the ties and
brought out beyond tho ends so as to form
a symmetrical roadbed proncrly sloped to
carry off tho water and thus keeping the
track dry in wet weather and free from
dust in dry weather The traveling public
is fast coming to distinguish the difference
between a poorly ballasted road and a road
whose tracks rest on solid abundant stone
ballast giving a sense of safety by its pro
tection against derailments which often
result from tilting ties and springing rails
where ballast is lacking and greatly con
tributing to enjoyment by the smooth and
easy motion of tho cars and the absence
from dust It takes j cars and much money
to put a stoneballasted road in perfect con
dition but when this is accomplished econ
omy in the wear and tear of rails and roll
ing stock is effected and tho popularity of
the line is sure to be promoted As between
two lines one fairly ballasted with dirt part
of the way and gravel cinders and stone
over other portions and the other solidly
ballasted over the whole distance the latter
is sure to prove the favorite with tbo
public even if it has no superiority in re
spect to equipment or train service
Paring Commissions to Brokers
The Kansas City Star says The Kansas
City roads are paying commissions to the
brokers
The fact was developed yesterday and it
was also discovered that tho majority of
the lines had never stopped the commissions
with certain of the scalpers
The Union avenue men are enjoying tho
benefits of closer relations with tho lines
than for ome time past and not only are
there portions of harvest excursion tickets
in their possession but they are selling
straight tickets over almost any line to
Chicago and St Louis The rate to St
Louis for a straight ticket is 6 and to Chi
cago 9 The rate is made through the
brokers being able to cut their commissions
on all tickets they can sell and the roads
are honoring tho vouchers presented as
readily as though there was no agreement
But two roads are out of the deal and it
was reported this morning that one of the
two would be after the brokers business
by Monday
The scalpers are going it wide opel
and the fact that they will sell over any
road at the cut rates and then go to the regu
lar offices and buy the tickets should bo
sufficient cause for an investigation by Mr
Finley if ho docs not know what the ar
rangements are
The harvest excursion tickets arc being
used to somo extent but tho commissions
arrangement gives the scalpers U the
leeway necessary and they are smiling

Rock Iiland to be Proaecnted
Sometime ago there was published in the
Star an account of the trial of the Rock
Island freight agent at Peoria who was
charged by the road with being an em
bezzler During the trial the most sensa
tional developments occurred and it was
discovered that the Rock Island at that
point kept two sets of books one of which
was known as the Pecks Bad Boy set
This set was used to keep the accounts of
all switching charges and the books to
gether with the agents and cashiers testi
mony showed that the money thus received
was used to pay commissions to the ship
pers The set of books became celebrated
among railroad men all over the country
and so much prominence could not but at
tract the attention of the interstate com
merco commission It is stated on the best
of authority that the commissions agent
will begin the prosecution of the Rock
Island on the strength of testimony given
at the trial at Peoria as soon as the cases
in Missouri and at Memphis have been dis
posed of
The prosecution of the charge of em
bezzlement is costing the Rock Island a con
siderable sum and in view of the fact that
the agent was acquitted when the set of
books was brought to light it is anything
but pleasant for the road Kansas City

An Iowa Decision
The railroad commissioners of Iowa have
just rendered a decision of unusual import
ance to the railroads and one which is at
tracting universal attention For a year or
more leading attorneys have argued tho
legality of tho rule in effect on most rail
roads which requires the passenger not
buying a ticket to pay 10 cents more than
the regular fare in paying cash on the train
A resident of Sioux Rapids Iowa brought
suit against the Chicago and Northwestern
before the commissioners His case was
that ho arrived at the depot just as the
train was pulling out and did not have time
to buy a ticket The conductor told him
the regular fare was 27 cents to his destina
tion but the passenscr one Olof Ovren
offered him 25 cents This was refused and
when Ovren refused to pay the amount de
manded tho conductor after warning him
stopped the train and proceeded to
eject the man Ovren then tendered
tho regular fare 27 cents but
this was refused and he left tho
train He brought tho case before tho
board of commissioners and it was decided
against him on the ground that the railroad
company had waited the full time at tho
station and if the passenger did not arrivo
promptly the railroad could not be com
pelled to hold its trains for him and that
the passenger was under the circumstan
ces bound to observe any rules which tho
company had adopted to cover such cases
The railroad men are pleased over tho de
cision and expect that the ruling will pre
vent serious trouble in the future

A SHERIFF FINED
Growlnc Out of the Injunction Froc a4
Inc In the San Antonio and Aransas
Pass Receivership
Special to the Gazette
Sajc Antonio Tex Sept 29 As Judge
Goodrich of Waco ordered the sheriff of
McLennan county to disobey the writ of
habeas corpus issued by Judge King of the
Fortyfifth district court of San Antonio in
the cases of Swart and Corneals ar
rested for work done upon tho
Gurley Ross Gurley extension of tho
San Antonio and Aransas Pass grading
Judge King today ordered that a fine of
100 be issued against Sheriff Danf orth of
McLennan A fine of 100 each was
also assessed against Gurley Ross
Gurley and one of their foreman
named Brooks for disregarding his injunc
tion restraining them from interfering with
tracklaying on the grade Writs have
been issued for these parties requiring them
to show cause why the fine should nd
be imposed The next development will be
executive Interference and possibly the use
of the rangers to enforce tho decrees of the
Fortyfifth district court The question at
issuo is not that the San Antonio and
Aransas Pass owes Gurley Ross and
Gurley for doing tho grading on the
Waco extension but that Gurley Ros3
Gurley instead of submitting
their claim to the master in chancery
in San Antonio having it passed on
and allowed as has been done in the case of
all other creditors chose to bring injunc
tion proceedings in the Waco court As
the San Antonio and Aransas pass receiv
ership is vested in the Fortyfifth district
court Judge King claims that Goodrich has
no jurisdiction
The Screech Owl
Few cries of birds are more melancholy
than that of the screech owl a sound which
has long been regarded with dislike The
superstitious dread of the cry of the owl is
found in the forest lands of the far west
The redskin listens with alarm to the dis
mal screeching of the owl firmly believing
that its wild cries portend some impending
calamity Wilson the ornithologist in
describing the cry of these owls says
This ghostly watchman has frequently
warned me of the approach of morning
sweeping down and around my fires utter
ing a loud and sudden Waugb OI waugh
Ol sufficient to have alarmed a whole gar
rison He has other nocturnal solos ona
of which very strikingly resembles the half
suppressed scream of a person suffocating
or throttled Sir John Richardson nar
rates the circumstance of a party of Scot
tish Highlanders who passed a long win
ters night of intense fear in the depths
an American pine forest They had mads
their bivouac fire from wood taken from
an Indian tomb all night longthe shrieks
of the owl rang in their affrighted eara
cries which they at once judged came from
the spirit of the old warrior bemoaning his
desecrated resting place
