DECIDE ON A DIFFERENTIAL
Railroads Roach a Solution of the Chicapo-
WILL INCREASE FARE ON FAST TRAINS
rslilPiilNRrei oil the 7 I 'llioil of
Srtllrnicnt , IiiMivlnir UetallM to
lie \Vorlii-il Out liy the
Passenger men In Omahn am speculating
on the results of the decision of the presi
dents of the lines between Chicago and Den
ver to charge excess faro on the now fast
trains between these two cities , via Omaha.
The amount of the excess faro to bo charged
on the new trains has not been definitely
-t flxcd , the details of the new arrangement
having been left to the general passenger
agents of the Interested linen to work out.
The meeting of the presidents at which this
decision In the long-drawn-out controversy
rtas reached Is said to have been n brief
one , nearly all the presidents , before the
meeting convened , being of the opinion that
to charge excess faro would bo the best
solution of the trouble.
Ttio passenger departments of the various
lines hero have received no news from the
Chlrngo meeting nave that conveyed through
the press dispatches. Conversation with the
passenger men who nro In Omaha filiowi
the general belief that the excess faro will bo
charged only on through travel. A pas
senger from Chicago to Denver or from
Denver to Chicago will bo charged $1 or $2 ,
ivtotovcr the oxccea ohnrgo may be , In addi
tion to the prlco of the regular ticket , If ho
wants to travel on one of the new fast
trains. It U not thought that any cxcefw
fa to will bo charged on the fast trains be
tween Omaha and Denver or Omaha and
Chicago. In either direction. ThU settle *
jiicnt of the conlrovemy will lenvo the Santa
Fo and tdo Missouri Pacific an differential
lines to ell Intents and purposes.
What the effect of the charging of excess
faro In thn west will bo Is a matter of con
jecture , lletwecn Chicago and Now York
nnd Chicago and Philadelphia excess faro Is
charged on the limited trains and with profit-
nblo results. Hut the class of travel be
tween these cities Is somewhat different
Iroiu that In the west. The now move will
lie an Interesting experiment , and will bo
closely watched by railroad men all over the
country. During the coming spring and
mimmcr It Is expected that travel will be
heavy on all western lines , partly on account
of the exposition hero and partly because of
the promised development of various western
ontorprlscs. Uy irany railroad men It Is
thought travel will bo sutllelently heavy to
make the now fast trains between Chicago
and Denver pay for themselves , oven If excess -
cess faro bo charged.
Up to date the amount of travel on the
no'.v trains hia been fairly good. Through
travel haa not been so numerous , but local
travel In Nebraska and Iowa has greatly ex
ceeded all expectations. Thtough travel , as
veil as local , should under the existing con
ditions gradually Increase from thU tlmo on
until Into In the autumn. Kach of the new
trains coats about $1 per mile , or means an
oxpcr.so of about $1,000 each way a day be
tween Chicago and Denver. With two now
tra'na this makes the additional expense to
each company about $2,000 per day , The
jirffilJenta of Ihp lines have evidently con
cluded that the HOW trains cau be uado to
pay for themselves ,
Late reports from Chicago In local railway
circles are to the effect that the excess faro
on fast trains 'between ' Chicago and Denver
will apply only to the new trains recently
put on Uy the Union Pacific-Northwestern
and by the Burllngtou , It Is said the new
trains that the Hock Island will place In
service on April 1 will take two houis
longer time for the trip , and will therefore
bo exempted from making the additional
charge. N'o authentic Information as to the
amount of the excess charge lias i > eeu re

All the railroads entering the city report
that the number of sneak thieves on their
trains In and out of Omaha has greatly In
creased lately. The railroad detectives are
kept busy looking after suspicious charac
ters on the trains and about the depots.
The new criminals are supposed to have
been attracted hero by the exposition. Sev
eral thefts of small articles from various
trains in and out of the city have been
On Monday a passenger who was going tea
a point In southern Indiana had her pocketbook -
book nnd ticket stolen from her on a Mis
souri Pacific train but a few minutes
after It had left the depot. She left ber
seat across 'the aisle , and left her pocketbook -
book In the seat. She merely stepped to
the opposite window for a moment , but
when she returned the pocketbook was miss-
Ing. The thief evidently got off the train
at the West Side station and made straight
to the olllco of a ticket broker. The ticket
was sold that afternoon. Its value was
$17.50. The broker llrst said ho paid $5 for
the ticket , and then later reported that he
had only given $4 for It. The railroad com
pany furnished the woman another ticket
to replace the stolen one , and she left for
her homo the following day. I/ocal detect
ives and the special service agents of the
railroad company have been at work on the
case ever slnco the theft occurred , but up
to date have not succeeded In capturing any
one that answers to the description of the
man given by the broker.

Rev. Alexander Gllchrlst , Rov. A. J. Turkic
and Rev. J. D. Kerr , representing the com-
mlttco appointed by the Omaha Ministerial
ualon to present to the exposition manage
ment the protest of the union against keep
ing the gates of the exposition open "cii the
Lord's day , commonly called Sunday , " pre
sented to President Wattles a communica
tion addressed to the board of directors of
the exposition. This recites the fact of the
appointment of the committee at a regular
meeting of the union and states that the
committee has attempted to hold an Inter
view with t'io ' cxecutlvo committee of the
exposition , but has been refused that privil
ege ; It also states that this action on the
part of the executive committee has been
duly reported to the union and a resolution
adopted Instructing the committee to press
on in the good Vorlc. The communication
expresses the hope that the board of dl-
lectors will take the matter In hand and
see to It that the "Lord's day" Is not pro
faned by allowing the gates to bo opened
and that the Interests of the employes on
the grounds are protected by not compelling
them to bo on duty at that time.
This communication was given prompt at
tention by President Wattles. Ho wrote a lot.
tcr to the committee and explained that the
subject matter of Its communication was ono
which had never been seriously considered
by the exposition management and that the
time had not yet como for Its consideration.
Ho Informed the committee that when the
time comes for this matter to bo taken up
the action of the Ministerial union will bo
given duo and careful consideration. The
president further explained to the committee

lowed the practlco adojitcd at an early stage

Preparations for Issuing The Hatchet , the
children's paper to bo Issued by the Woman's
lioard of Managcrs of the exposition In aid
of the construction of the Girls' and Hoys'

the paper will probably bo out early next

caused by the dltllciilly of getting the half
tone cuts of children's pictures , which will
form a prominent feature of the paper.
Anxious mammas wanted new pictures for
the purpose. It Is thought at headquarters
that the trouble Is now over and that mat
ters will now -proceed rapidly.
Other portions of the paper have not boon

large magazine form and will have thirty-
two pagra besides the cover. It will be
printed on enameled book paper and the

The paper Is designed to appeal more espe
cially to children of all ages , although there
will be much In Its pages that will Interest
the children of larger growth. About eight
pagrti will be devoted to stories written by

been received by the editor from all parts
of tbo state. The amount of originality and
genius shown In the stories sent In by con
tributors who are less than 1C years old Is
truly remarkable , and the task of selecting
the articles to be used has been no easy one.

Missouri will occupy 0,774 square feet of

tion. This result followed the visit of the
special committee of the Missouri Kxpcal-
tlon commission , which visited Omaha about
ton days ago. A telegram from Chairman
Clark II. Sarapecn to the Department of Ex
hibits asked that the space named be re
served for Missouri , nnd gave notice that the
check In payment for this space will bo sccit
by moll at once. The space taken by Ml -
sourl Is divided among the main buildings as
follows : Agriculture , 2,220 feet ; M'ties and
Mining , 2,400 ; Horticulture , 1,188 ; FUG Arts ,
In addition to , the space occupied' In the
main buildings , 'Missouri will erect a state

The Denver papers are printing columns
of matters regarding the trip of tbo Colorado
delegation to Omaha Tuesday. The delegates -
gates returned homo thoroughly Imbued
with the Idea that the state and Denver
must make a showing that will equal or
excel that to bo m > de by any other section
and they have been talking that theory to all
the people all the time. They are high In
their praise of the preparations which are
being made and stat < > most emphatically that
the people of Colorado will miss the grandest
opportunity that has ever been offered them
If they fall to take advantage of the oppor
tunity and have a showing at tbo exposition
which will do the state Justice.
A mass meeting of the people of Denver
will be called early next week 'by Mayor Me-
Murray and the mayor announces his In-
tentlon of putting the 'matter squarely before -
fore the people and aiklng them to turn Th
and give all the assistance possible to make
up for the valuable tlmo that has been lost.
It has been estimated that Denver could
erect a creditable building for about $0,000 ,
and an effort Is to bo made to raise this
money at once In order that the site chosen
'or the building may be secured before some
other locality takes It.
The member * of the state commission are
also thoroughly alive to the situation and
strong efforts will bo made at once to raise
enough money to make n good showing of
the resources of the state. The energy with
which the work Is now being pushed makes
It more than probable that the Colorado
exhibit will do full Justice tn the prominent
places In the main buildings which have
been .reserved . for the Centennial state.
