Interesting Career of Fred L.

YEARS ON THE ILLINOIS DIVISION.
Selected on Ilfferent Occasions to Knu

Inc a Enviable Keeord For Ilimaelfj
Other Notes Picked lp Alondstde the
Engineer Fred L. Brewer, of the
Chicago. Kock Island & Facilic. has
had an interesting railroad career.
He was born in Moline in the year of
l!S.V.t. Ho attended the public schools
and received his early training there.
At the age of 1 years he moved to
Chicago with his parents. There his
fond wish for

of KS75 he se-
cured a posi

. man on the
ion of the C,
li. I. & I. Af
ter live years
of steady ser
vice he was
promoted to engineer on a freight
run on the s.ame division. After 11
vears of faithful engineering his ser
vices were rewarded by his being
placed on a passenger run. He has
come to be known as one of the most
skillful engineers in the employ of
the company, as has been demon
strated in his selection by the officials
on four different occasions to guide
fast trains on their trial trips.
Mr. Brewer lives with his familv in
Ihelirstof lr. Brewers experi
ences on fast runs was the time when
all Chicago anxiously awaited the tie
cison of the appellate court at Ottawa
on the hearing of t lie great Hay market
anarchist riot case whicu tl?euleil lue
fate of the conspirators. The Bock
I-!and road was c"in'iefiug with the
telegraph companies in carrying the
valuable news to the Chicago papers.
Mr. Brewer was the choseir man to
'uide the 114 on this speedy mission
The decision was received from the
stenographer and the distance was
covered in two hours, scoring a com
plete victory for the railroad, as the
court's opinion was very lengthy and
could not be handled speedily by the
operator. 1 he speed attaine.l was a
great surprise in those days, and Mr,
Brewers efforts were hiirhlv com
mended by the oflicials of the road,
as t lie eiirine was a mere scrap pile
in comparison with those of today.
When the powerful 1100 s were built
for the Hock Island., Mr. Jsrewer was
selected as the man to test the speed
and durability these monsters
The 1101 was the first one built, and
the trial trip was made three vears
ago. The trip was made in a thor
oughly satisfactory manner, and the
party of officials who accompanied
the train were elated over the run
Speed as hirh as M miles an hour
was attained. On Jan. N when
the Bock Island was competing for

Brewer handled the 1102 on this trip

he lias had many duties which are
commonly outside of the office of an
engineer, and he lias shown his ai. lily

be made of him. During the last few

The Western association umpires
have been instructed to preserve the
strictest order on the field and discuss
the points of the game with no one
but the captain. Bowdyism and pro
fane language are not to lie tolerated.
They are also instructed to be circum
spect in their conduct while oil the
grounds. Each will be expected to
wear a neat uniform on the tidd. It
is believed the clubs will endeavor to
cooperate with the umpires in pre
serving order and making the game
agreeable. The umpires are old, ex
perienced men and strictly honorable.
They will be actuated at all time by a
spirit of fairness. The umpire who
never made a mistake has yet to see

seems to be a rood one.
