The annual report of the Chicago,
Burling ton & Quincy Railway com-pan3-
for the fiscal year ended .lune
.;0, 190:5. has been issued.
Owing' to the fact that the company
at the beg'Inninj; of the last fiscal year
discontinued making monthly reports
of earnings, the issuance of this year's
annual report was looked forward to
with more than ordinary interest, as
no preliminary estimates of the re
sults of operations during the year
could be. made. The financial state
ment, as given in the report, makes' a
better showing than was expected,
$.1,228,119 being added to the surplus.
The report calls attention to the fact
that the railroads and properties of
the company were leased, taking ef
fect Oct. 1, 1901, to the Chicago,' Bur
lington & Quincy Railway company
and since that date have been ojiera
ted by the company. For purposes of
comparing results .of operation with
previous years, this report is made
by the railroad company.
Earnings from operation, including
all leased lines, for the year ended
.1 tine :iu. 190.1, were as follows: Freight.

During the year the llurlington

dividends at the rate of 7 per cent on
the stock of the llurlington Railroad
The length of road operated June
30, 1903, was R.324 mile, against S.124
miles at the end of the'previous year.
The gross earnings a mile of road
were $7,529 in 1003, as against $0,634
in 1902. Operating expenses, including
taxes, a mile, in 1903 were $4,873.
against $4,400 in 1902. The percentage

the dramatization of Charles Major's
novel which was made by Paul Kester
originally for Miss Julia Marlowe, was
presented at the Illinois last evening
with Miss Kbselle Knott in the star
role. Rook plays, as a rule, are not
lasting successes. Seldom can the
dramatist preserve the beauty and
continuity of the story, but Mr. Kes
ter has done so, nnd has maintained
the interest throughout the whole five
acts. The entire story is told in the
play of the madcap Princess Mary,
who 'dares to fall in love with the
captain of the king's guards and de
fies her royal brother when he com
mands her to marry Louis of France.
She tells him to go to perdition when
he commands her to give up her lover.

his bride in name only. He finally
dies, and she and Brandon elope to
England, where she is forgiven, and
all ends happily. The part of Prin
cess Mary, while very exacting, is pe
culiarly fitted to Miss Knott's person
ality. The termagant, yet lovable sis
ter of King Henry VIII. is one that
requires an actress of rare perception
and finesse, and both these qualities
Miss Knott possesses" to a degree.

mitted himself in favor of the adop
tion of the Kathbone Sisters as the
official auxiliary cf the grand lodge.
PIe for Slstere.
Mrs. Belle Quinlan, supreme chief
of the Kathbone Sisters, devoted her
address of welcome principally to a
plea for the adoption of her order as
the auxiliary of the grand lodge. The
grand lodge has until now declined to
admit the sisters within the fold on
Ihe grounds that there are two wo
man s societies KnocKing at ine ooor,
the Pythian Sisterhood being the oth
er, ine latter society nas no mem
bership to speak of in the west, and
none in Illinois. Its chief strength is
in the east. On the other hand, the
Kathbone Sisters have a large mem
bership in the west. They invariably
hold their grand temple simultaneous
ly with the meeting of the grand
lodge. Mrs. Quinlan advanced con
vincing arguments in favor of the
idoption of the Kathbone Sisters and
was enthusiastically applauded by the
knights. The latter are gradually
melting, and it is the belief that if the
sisters are not admitted at the pres
ent session of the grand lodge they
surely will a year hence. In sub
stance Mrs. Quinlan said that the boys
ought to soon come to a. realization
that they could not get along without
the girls as well as the girls could get
ilong without them.
Lodre Get Down to Haalneaa.
The business sessions of the grand
lodge, which are secret, were begun
at 2 o'clock this afternoon. The elec
tion of officers occurs tomorrow af
ternoon. Ihe liveliest tight is over the
grand outer guardship. There are
several candidates in the field, includ
ing S. K. Wright, of this city, whose
strength is said to be growing, Kiid
leservedly so. Fred Hathaway, of
Ottawa, has entered the race for the
office of grand keeper of records and
seal, a position that has been filled
for 26 years by B. F. Caldwell. The
latter is a candidate for reelection.

The degree work of the Kathbone
Sisters was exemplified last night at
Odd Fellows hall by the staff of Oak
wood temple, of Erie, Mrs. Leona
Housh, the grand chief, presiding.
