the authorship of the charges against

friends. White failed of appointment
at his county camp as a delegate to

Reilly for his defeat, it is said. Mr
Reilly disclaims having any fight

D ELAN 0T0 WABASH
Burlington's Former Manager
Called to High
SUCCEEDS JOSEPH RAMSEY
To Take Charfe of the Entire Sys
tem the Coming
George J. Gould, head of the entire
Gould system of railways, has chosen
Frederic A. Delano, former general
manager of th? Burlington, to be en
trusted with active control of tho Wa
bash road. Mr. Delano yesterday was
elected president of the Wabash-Pittsburg
Terminal company, and it is un
derstood that he will become presi
dent and general manager of the rail
way in the autumn.
For some time, it is said, there lias
been friction between Joseph Ramsey.
Jr.. president of the Wabash, and Mr.
Gould owing to differences of opin
ion about the details of extension and
financing. Mr. Ramsey desired to re
sign last January, but Mr. Goiiid per
suaded him to remain until another
man could be found who in all re
spects would "fill the bill.') That man
he Is said to have found in the per
. on of Mr. Delano.
Consequently, at the meeting yes
terday in New York Mr. Ramsey's res
ignation as president of the terminal
company was accepted and Mr. Dela
no's election ratified.
It is understood that the change in
ihe priidency of the ro;id wi'.l take
i lace on Oct. 1. which time will mark
he severance of Mr. Ramsey's connec
tion with the company. He then will
io on a six months' tour of Europe.
IMiMhrd Out by IIHL
I'ntil a few months ago Mr. Delano
vas general manager of the Burllng
on system, with headquarters in Chi
cago. Then he tendered his resigna
tion to James J. Hill. He is known
as a representative of the new school
f railroading and is regarded by rail
way men as exceptionally versatile,
being a civil engineer and trained me
chanic. One of his contrivances is
said to have revolutionized the meth
ods of locomotive firebox construction.
Mr. Ramsey has been president of
the Wabash since 1STG. The plan to
nter Pittsburg and share in tho enor
mous tonnage of that city was origi
nated and executed by him.
The securities issues to cover the
cost of this undertaking resulted in
differences between Mr. Gould and Mr.
Ramsey. The latter's friends say that
he saved th Yv'abash enormous sums
by his financing of this deal, but that
he has been hampered in his manage
ment of the Wabash-Pittsburg termi
nal properties ever since.
