President Cable er the Reek Islam
an Jay Uaald W. V. Brews mill
Tbe attention of R. R. Cable, president
of the Rock Island road was directed in
Chicago the other day to what purported
to be an interview with Jay Gould tele
graphed to Denver. That part' of the
interview tn which Mr. Cable was most
interested was the one in which Mr. Gould
is quoted a sayiug: "I wish to emphat
ically deny that I am seeking to disrupt
the Western traffic association. Why I
do not deny that such a thing has entered
my mind more than once, still it would
not be policy for me to do so. Don't
think for a moment that I am afraid to
attempt such a thing. I dare do anything.
The Santa Fe and Rock Island are often
pointed out to me as great rivals. It is
bosh for reasons which Mr. Manvcl and
Mr. Cable can both explain. Neither
one of these roads can make a move with
out consulting me."
A perceptible sneer curled the lip of
President Cable when he read this por
tion or Mr. Gould's alleged statement.
He said the announcement that Gould
had considered the proposition to dis
rupt the Western Traffic association
would surprise nobody in the railroad
world. Neither would anyone question
the reason which be assiened for refrain
ing from it, that is, that it would not be
"I may add," said President Cable,
"that nobody questions his couratre in
attacking a contract when. it
interfered with his interests. He
ought not to assume, however, that the
managing officers of other railway com
panies dare not make a move without
consulting him, and especially as his at
torneys are now busily engaged in de
fending suits vigorously prosecuted by
two companies the Rock Island and the
Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul to com
pel tbe performance on his part of the
contracts in regard to the Omaha bridge.
This movement at least has been made
without consulting Mr. Gould."
W. C. Brown, the erstwhile supetin
tendent of tin Rock Inland and St. Louis
division of the C, B. & Q. is still going
higher. An important change in the
management of some of the Burlington
route's lines is announced. Hereafter
tie Missouri river lines of this system,
consisting of the Hannibal & St. Joseph
railroad and the Kansas City, St. Joseph
& Council Bluff railroad have been oper
ated under one management, with offices
at St. Joseph, Mo. The E. line and the
Chicsgo, Burlington & Kansas City have
been operated from the general offices,
Keokuk. Commencing May 1 these two
systems will be operated under one man
agement. W. C. Brown, who has been
general manager of the Missouri river
lines, will be general manager of the con
solidated lines, with headquarters at St.
The Quincy papers say that the air in
that vicinity is filled with rumors of im
portant changes soon to be made among
the officials of the C. B. & Q. system
in that part of the country. No definite
information is to be gained, however.
The C. B. & Q. discharged 60 more
of its employes at Galesburg Monday.

Duncan Clark's female minstrels ap
oear at Harper's theatre Saturday night.
The Rochester Herald says:
Burlesques always have a strong hold
upon popular favor, and it needed only
the announcement that Duncan Clark's
company was to open a week's engage
ment at tbe Grand to draw a good sized
t.udience to that place of amusement last
tvening. , The performance was after the
usual style of female minstrels, consist
ine of an olio, songs and dances, several
ery good specialties, a "statue march by
1 ively women," and the never failing
afterpiece. The play greatly pleased the
