Matters in the strike of tbe O. R. T. on
the Rock Island ara substantially the
same as they were a week ago, with no
immediate prospect of a change unless it
be a fiercer fight. For 10 days past
Chairman Coons, of the strikers, has been
claiming that the Rock Island is black
listing the sttikers and thus preventing
them from getting employment on other
roaas. What grounds there are for this
statement is not given, but Chairman
Coons claims to have enough evidence of
the existence of such a list to begin lee&l
proceedings against the company fnr
damages in names of several individuals
who, it is said, have been refused posi
tions on that account. The company on
the other hand is doing everything to
make the men cow in its employ feel sat
isfied. On Christmas the dispatchers who
are now considered a part of the official
family of the road, were esch given a
check for $50. The new schedule of
wages which the company had under con
sideration at the time of the strike will
b3 given to the new men, which will
make a neat increase in their ear nines.
The Improved Sleeper.
The Lucca, the first of the new Pull
man sleepers to run between Omaha and
Chicago, leaving the former place at 4:45
p. m. and arriving in Chicago at 8
o clock the next morning, has mede its
first trip. It has all tbe improvements,
The berths are half a foot longer than
the old, and a patent contrivance makes
the berths level. Each berth has a sin
gle curtain rail, so that each section is
independent of the other. The entire
sleeper is more heavily upholstered than
ordinary sleepers and has brass orca
ments, gas, steam, hot and cold water,
and silk curtains. Trie ventilators are
so arranged that no draft is made. The
drawing room contains beveled French
mirrors, closet, and the ladies' lavatory
also has hot and cold water. R. B
Jackson is in charge.
Sixty More Engines.
An exchange says the Chicago, Bur
lington & Quincy officials are talking
seriously of asking for bids on 60 more
road engines, in order to keep up with
the increasing business. This shows in
a measure, the growth cf the tremen
dous business on the road. They have
been getting new engines for several
years past not to take the place of old
lumber, bat to meet the increased de'
It will be interesting to many to know
that a large stock company is about to
establish a plant at West Superior, Wis.
and and build cylindrical, or "Whale
back," steel cars, to take the place of
the present coaches, which are weak and
combustible. It has long been known
that stronger and less inflammable cars
would do much to prevent the great loss
of life that often takes place in great
wrecks where cars are splintered and
piled in a heap and burned, together
with passengers. inese new cars are
to be built after the pattern of "whale
back" vessels, which have been such i
success in the lakes.
