coast as well. It is to be the finest
thing1 on wheels west of Chicago.
and is to have all the features that
make the superb trains of the east
so notable.. It will not only be .thte
best in the west." but it will be the
peer of anything in the country.

This train, which will run .daily af

as the (ioldcu State Limited. For it
there has been secured an entirely
new outfit of equipment, which has
cost over $:i.OOO.ooo. The train will
be made up exclusively of sleeping.
dining, library and observation ears.
No day coaches or tourist sleepers
will be carried. No extra fare will
be charged for traveling in this mag
nificent train, but only first class
passengers holding tickets for Full
nian accomodations will be carried
The standard sleeping cars to be
used will contain ten sections and
two drawing rooms. The toilet rooms
are unusually commodious. Especially
is this true of the woman" room,
wh. icli is large enough to accommo
date three women at one time. The
compartment sleeping cars will be es
pecially desirable for family parties
or for women traveling alone. They
will contain two drawing rooms and
seven state rooms, each having a
double lower and upper berth, asofa
and individual toilet arrangements.
Theoretically, the buffet-snioking-library
car will be for men only. In
actual practice it will be a favorite
resort for women passengers a place
where (if they do not mind tobacco
smoke) they can spend a pleasant
hour or two. while husband, father,
brother or friend chat with chance
acquaintances and smoke the after

As far as it is possible to do so on
a train, the buffet-smoking-library
car will duplicate the functions of a
met ropolitan club. In it will be writ
ing desks, a sofa, easy chairs and a
well stocked buffet. Forward of the
smoking and reading' room, which
occupies about half the length of the
car, will be the barber shop, and ad
joining it the bathroom.

car will be intended particularly for
the use of male passengers, so, the-j
reticallv. will the rear half of the
observation ear be intended for the
especial accommodation of women.
It. will be their "club house on
wheels." Nevertheless, men will be at
all times welcome. IJut they must
not smoke. That is almost the only
rule there will be on the (iolden State
Limited, smoking will not le allowed
in the observation room.
Here will be located a station of the
P.ooklovers' Library. It will not be
a very extensive library less than a
hundred volumes but it will make
up in quality. . Unusual discrimina
tion has been displayed in the se
lection of books and fiction, travel
and philosophy are represented in
proportion to satisfy the tastes of
intelligent readers. On request, the
porter of the observation car will fur

Lighted By Electricity.
The train will be lighted through
out by electricity. ..There will be elec
tric lights everywhere in the ceil
ing, on the sides of the cars, in the
berth. This last feature is worthy of
special note, for it not only enables
one to undress in comfort, but also,
in case one wishes, to read in bei.
.All parts of the train, including the
dining car, the library car, the sleep
ers and the observation car, will be
equipped with electric fans. They
will serve a double purpose they will
keep the .ear cool and, at the same
time insure, good ventilation. A twist

There .will be other advantages in
traveling by this route, on the rear

In the course of his efforts to in

got under a fair sized jag. Along in
the evening, while in this condition,
one of his attempts at oral persua

took place not over a mile from the
police station. Finally the conten

which no one was disfigured.

and he straigntway hied him as fast
as his unsteady legs could carry him

in a complaint that led to the arrest
of one of the parties who had been
"ferninst" him in the argument.
After the arrest was made it devel
oped that there was no proof against
the suspected party, and he was
turned loose. Thereupon he turned
about and laid complaint against his
accuser, and the latter was in turn
placed in the toils. At this juncture
a number of good republicans came
upon the scene, and in a short time

President Roosevelt Thoroughly
Dissatisfied With Remod

Washington, Oct. 28. Many articles
have been written and pictures pub
lished showing what a joy forever the
remodelled white house will be when
the carpenters, painters and decora
tors finally get away from the build
ing. There has always been a feeling
of dissatisfaction among some of the
older residents of the city and
throughout the country, for thiit mat
ter, against the changes that were be
ing1 made in the historic home of the
presidents. It has been made clear
that the changes were necessary, as
the- white house for a number of
years past has been really a big office
building and that the members of the
president's family have really been
without a home. This was all to
have been changed by the construc
tion of an office building for the
president an. I the remodelling of the
white house on an elaborate scale,

his family ami open to the public only
upon Ihe occasion of receptions. The
office building has been about com
pleted and the repairs of the white
house are Hearing completion, and
the president is very much dissatis
fied with the job.
CoDerfm Appropriated KJ.VOOO
The congress appropriated $f5.(0(
for the construction of a tempor
ary office building for the president.
Now that it is practically completed,
it has "temporary" written over it.
It contains six rooms, all on one floor,
painted pine mantels, great areas of
bare wall space, and a general barny
air. It was discovered recently that
there was no vaultroom in the place
for the reservation of important pa
pers. This was remedied. When the
coal strike was on' the fuel question
occurred to the builders, ami it was
discovered that there were no coal
bins, and work was commenced to
patch up this defect. Now it is shown
that no provision has bet-ti made for
the disposition of ashes and refuse.
I he eminent architects who designed
the structure apparently failed to re
member that the president would
have just as much use as an ordinary
individual for the little necessities and
conveniences that, enter into the
equipment of a modern office build-
rng. Of course, these defects will all
he remedied, but this can be accom
plished only by a system of patch
work that will not, at least, add any
thing to the beauty of the building.

his disgust with the management.
His only satisfaction with the new-
building lies in the fact that it will

use of his family.
Work is progressing, but slowly on
the white house, and it does not now
seem probable that the building will
be. ready for occupancy before the
end of the year. It is plain that un
less the plans under way are radically

people without danger of a jam. The
reception of 5.0M) or 0.OOO would be
impossible. Only one staircase is pro
vided from the dressing rooms. 11ns
"must be used bv those ascending to
and descending from the state apart
ments. The president is loth to have the
idea go abroad that any such plans
have had his approval. Should the
president's positive orders to com
plete the work in time for the New
Year's reception be obeyed, those in
charge of such functions say that
the onlv possible way to hold the re
ception will be to ignore the improve
ments and have the line of callers
form on Pennsylvania avenue and at
the old north door of the white
house. They say it would be criminal
to undertake the management af a
crowd of 5,000 to 0,000, all of whom
must ascend and descend by the one
staircase provided. It is probable
that a similar flight on the western
side of the building will be built, but
this would still further delay the
completion of the building.
