Road at St. Paul.
A circular has just Wen receive J
iy the local representatives of the
Kock Island road which upsets pre
vious announcements as to the future
olncial status of n. II. Hudson, of this
city, auditor of the IVoria, who had
been appointed auditor of the Choc

Ihe circular in question tersely
announces, with a number of other
changes, that Mr. Hudson has been
appointed passenger trnflic auditor
of the entire system with headquar
ters at Chicago. This is a highly re
fcMnsible position anil much more
desicable than the one as auditor of
tne Choctaw road. Mr. Hudson is
promoted over the heads of several
older men in the service of the com
pany, A. Temple, whose place he
takes, being made assistant auditor
f passenger traffic. The other ap
pointments announced are that mf
L. Cramer, as assistant comptrol
ler; S. C. Matthews, as auditor of
lisburseinents. and V. II. Hums, au
ditor of freight traffic. All take ef
fect beginning tomorrow.

Another obange of considerable lo
cal interest is that bv which C. A.
Hunter, commercial agent for the
past year of the territory including
Jock Island. Moline and Kast Moline,
with headquarters in this city, is
given the commercial airenev of the
road at St. I'nnl. Mr. Hunter has
been in Kock Island just l.t months,
having opened the office in this citv
lime 1 last year. He was the first
ommereial agent ever assigned to
this territory bv the company and the
luties that confronted him were ar
luous. He has, however, overcome
every difficulty, adding greatly to the
road's local business. lie has also
made many warm friends and there
will be general regret that he is, to
cave the city. The change, which
takes effect at once, is a substantial
promotion, involving a larger terri
tory and an advance in salary. Who

Today marks the end of the official
status of the Kock Island & I'eoria
road. The office force was busy
closing up the records preparatory
to sending them to Chicago. To

have a desk there and will continue
as chief dispatcher. He will be on
duty during the days and the dis
patchers of the other divisions of the
road will take care of the night bus

Harry Hill, who have been -dividing
the work with Mr. Judd, out of
places in this city.
The. majority of the employes in
the auditor's and general passenger
offices. the I'eoria have nothing
furtii-r -regard to the future than
they have had for several days. In
general they have been informed
that they will be taken care of if
they will come to Chicago. C. K. V.

local car accountant's office, left
today for Chicago, where he will
take a position in the car service de
