From Kansas East to Chicago and West to the Coast. EVENT OF THE YEAR Will Be the Opening of the Line Into San Francisco. Onlj Road With Its Own Tracks From Chicago to the Pacific. Probably the most Important event in the railway history of the present year will be the opening of the new through line of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe road July 1. This will be the firs, company that has ever had a line over its own tracks between Chicago and the Pacific coast and much importance is attached to this announcement. Until twelve years ago the Santa Fe was a strictly Kansas system. Though it had lines reaching some distance over the borders of the state 'its principal Dusjness was within this common wealth. Then it was decided that the system was incomplete unless it secured a route to Chicago. This was an ex pensive proceeding, but was success fully executed. Subsequently the west ern ends of the road were extended. Though the Chicago line was valuable to the system as a whole, it required several years to build up a profitable business. This has been worked up, until now the Santa Fe is considered the strong Chicago-Kansas City line. Then came the company's through service to southern California. This made a hit at once and the tourist and fruit business has made it one of the most profitable lines in the country. The officers of the road started in to boom southern California as a winter resort and luxurious limited trains were put in service. Though the company has from time to time added to this service during the past winter its equip ment was taxed to the utmost to ac commodate the travel. When President Ripley assumed charge of the system five or six years ago he reorganized it. He also began to lay plans for the conquest of upper California, .particularly San Francisco. When the persons who started to build the San Francisco and San Joaquin Valley road, to give them a competitor of the Southern Pacific, gave up the task the Santa Fe purchased the line and finished it to San Francesco. About two months ago the line was opened for freight traffic and now the company announces that it is ready to land passengers in the metropolis of the goiden gate state. The new line will be the first real competitor the Southern Pacific has had. CONNECT WITH PECOS ROAD. Choctaw and Gulf Extension Now a Certainty. Oklahoma City, Ok., June 25. Word has been received here from Traffic Manager J. F. Holden, of the Choctaw, Oklahoma & Gulf railway, who has just returned from a meeting of the directors held at Philadelphia, that the extension of the road to Amarillo will be com menced at once and will be pushed to completion. The proposed extension in 200 miles in length and the completed system will make a line nearly S00 miles irom -Memphis, Tenn., to Amarillo, Tex. or to some point on the Pecos Valley roaa in Jew .Mexico. The entire length of the line is along the 3.r.th parallel and makes a line that was projected by Tom Henton in con gress becore the civil war and the build ing of w hich w as not begun because of the war. It provides a line from the Atlantic to the Pacific south of the snow line and north of the heat zone of the extreme southern states. BOCK ISLAND ANNUAL. Report of Past Fiscal Year Shows Much Prosperity. The annual financial report of the di rectors of the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific company for the fiscal year end ing April 1 has been sent out. The statement shows the corporation to be in a flourishing financial condition. Following are the principal figures in the renort: Gross earnings from operation. . .$22. (i'O. fill Operating expenses ll.ft-3.7i;S Taxes is.S2 Net earnings from operation 7.0)5.154 N'et income S.S6S,5S3 Surplus for the year 2.4W,4T5 The passenger department makes a good showing, earnings for the year being an increase of $4S7,455 over the preceding twelve months. Considerable new equipment has been added during the year and much construction work finished. Concerning track elevation, President Purdy says: "Track elevation in Chicago was ex tended during the year from Seventy first street, a distance of three-fourths of a mile, at a cost of J220.970.07. This completes the elevation as provided for in ordinances passed by the city coun cil. The total length of road now ele vated is 7.32 miles, equal to 29.42 miles of main and side tracks, the proportion of cost paid by this company being $1, 37S,114.6S." FREIGHT DIVISION CHANGE General Superintendent Nixon of the Gulf lane Makes One. Galveston, Tex., June 25. Mr. "W. C. Nixon, general superintendent of the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe, today stated that the Santa Fe would on July 1 begin using Beilville as the first freight division terminal north of Gal veston transferring from Sealy. A new train schedule is being prepared to cov er the change. Beilville is nearly an equal distance from Galveston and Temple, being 10S miles from the former and 111 mile from the latter. Sealy is but ninety five miles from Galveston and in using that as the division point the runs were not evenly distributed. The south bound grades between Beilville and Sea ly have been reduced, which will en able the company to run heavy trains from Beilville to Galveston. The ter minals at Beilville are not yet finished but have progressed sufficiently to ad mit of the change mentioned. Jeffery to Be Relieved. Denver, June 25. As has been re peatedly announced, President E. T. Jeffrey of the Kio Grande as to give up the general management ' of the road July 1 in order to devote himself to the financial end of the business, and J. G. Metcalfe, late of the Louisville and. Nashville, is to succeed him. Mr. Met calfe will arrive in Denver the latter part of this week. While he succeeds General Manager Jeffrey in title he will practically take up the work laid down by Assistant General Manager Charles Schlacks, for the latter has been taking care of the general manager's duties. air. Jeffrey declined to talk about his own futurue plans or the rumor that he was to go to New York. An Ally of the Santa Fe, San Francisco, June 25. It is report ed in railroad circles that the Oceanic Steamship company is to be made the exclusive ocean connection of the Santa Fe, that joint agencies will be estab lished at Honolulu and other Dolnts reached by the Oceanic steamers and that freight and passenger business eastbound from Australia, New Zea land and Hawaii will, so far as possible, be billed and ticketed through to the east over the Santa Fe. While the of ficials of tiie lines mentioned do not confirm this report, it is not denied that they will soon occupy the same passen ger offices in this city. No Passes to Be Issued. The executive officers of all the lines running into Kansas City have decided that no free transportation shall be is sued to or from Kansas City on account of the Democratic national convention, July 4. This is imperative, and no ex ception will be made under any circum stances. The railroads feel that very liberal concessions have already been made in the way of special reduced rates for the Kansas City convention, and they can not afford to carry any body free. Oldest Conductor Bead. St. Paul, Minn., June 25. Henry Fine hout. aged 81, believed to have been the oldest conductor in the world, died at his home here early today. His rail road service extended over a period of sixty years, and he never had an acci dent. Ban on Cigarettes. All the application blanks which men seeking positions on the Rock Isl and are obliged to fill out and sign, were recently called in and others sent out. The new ones bear the additional question, '"Does the applicant smoke cigarettes?" It was decided at a meet ing of the board in April that this question would be added to the blank. This, of course, only applies to the em ployes in the offices and on trains. FROM NEWTON.

The residents in Parkdale were fright ened Saturday night by a man whom they believe to be insane. The man was walk ing in a circle under an electric light and talking to himself. Those who saw his strange actions were afraid to approach him and telephoned for the police. When the officers arrived they at once recog nized the man as Paul Shirk, a cocaine "fiend." who has frequently been in the city jail. He is rational when kept from the drug, but becomes insane from its use. He was at one time sent to the asylum, as it was thought the drug had affected his mind, and was released after a time as cured. He got along all right for awhile, but soon again began the use of the drug. SHELDON IN EDINBURGH. Topeka Minister Addresses World's W. C. T. U. Congress. Edinburgh, June 25.

Topeka's WILL SOON RUN TRAINS Vinewood Park lane to Be in Opera tion in Two Weeks. A train Is now running on the Vine wood Park railroad. It is, however, a work train, and is made up of the engine and a flat car. A force of about thirty is at work straightening and grading the track. Passenger trains will be running to and from the park in about two weeks. The trains will consist of the engine and three passenger coacnes. Two round trips will be made each day. On holidays and Sundays trains will be run from each end of the" line at intervals of about 40 min utes. The work of grading the track would have been commenced several weeks sooner only material could not be had to repair the engine that will be used to haul the trains. A delay of nearly five weeks has been caused by this reason. The coaches which will be used in the trains run under the new management are the ones that were used by the old Kast Side railway company. They are being remodeled and thoroughly repaired. The coaches are considerably longer than the ones now in use by the present city railway. The coaches have the double trucks on either end of the car and are fitted with springs the same as any passenger coach on a railroad. The open cars nave had seats running the entire width of the car. They are be ing rebuilt, with an aisle in the center of the car. The seats on each side of the aisle will comfortably accommodate two persons. Each car is about 35 feet long and will carry about 60 passengers. The train will be composed of two of the open cars and a closed car. The closed car will be divided into two com tartments. One compartment will be about two-thirds of the length of the car and will have two seats running the en tire length back to back in the center of the car. The other portion of the car will be fitted up as a smoking room. An order will soon be placed for new equipment- It is hardly possible, how ever, that the new cars will be delivered oetore tne miauie oi August. ine nw cars will be supplied with a new and Im proved style of gasoline motor. Each car will haul one trailer. During the time occupied in getting the track into shape a force of men will be at work on the improvement of the park. The grounds will be thoroughly cleaned. Benches will be placed in convenient places and stands where refreshments will be sold will be built. The dancing pavil ion will be repaired and the floor will also be put into good condition., The pa vilion will be painted. The street car fares will be five cents each way. Next season an opera house will be erected. A number of high class summer opera and vaudeville companies will be the at tractions. It is planned that work will begin on the viaduct over the railroad tracks and creek in the course of a few weeks. Un til the time of its completion the cars will run from the car barn on the cor ner of Tenth and Chestnut streets. This is seven blocks east of Kansas avenue on Tenth. Trains will leave this point once each forenoon, once each afternoon and two trips will be made in the evening. Later when the viaduct is completed ar.d if traffic demands it trains will be run on a schedule time, and trips will be made as often as is necessary. A new roof has been placed over the round house and the corrugated iron sides will be torn down. The sides will be re built with wood. RAN INTO A FREIGHT.

Auditorium and City Hall as The FOUND SOUL IX DISTRESS. Remarkable Visit of Mrs, Willi ts to the City. JaiL A little woman dressed in blue called at the police station Sunday evening and asked if there was not an old woman con fined there who had been sick or in trouble at about 2 o'clock in the morn ing. She was informed by the jailer that woman was there and that she had called him at about that hour and had complained of feeling bad. He said she was crying when he went to her. The visitor than stated that she had been troubled in her sleet) and at 2 o'clock something seemed to tell her that there was a woman past middle age in jail who was in great trouble. She said she had been unable to rest after that, and had come to see the woman. She was taken to the room where Mrs. Wight is confined and asked to be left alone with her for a talk, as she thought she could do her soul some good. She re mained in the room some time and when the jailer went up had just finished giv ing Mrs. "Wight a massage treatment. In answer to questions put to her she said: "I am not a spiritualist and do not believe in spirits. I am a member of the Presbyterian church and of the Universal Brotherhood, a society whose object is to do good to all and to help I sick souls. I do not understand why these , strange feelings come to me. I have had : them before and when I talked to the president of The Universal Brotherhood in Los Angeles he said I was what is known to the brotherhood as a sensitive." She talked of the object of the organi zation and said that its aim was to help those who need mental as well as ma terial aid. She learned that Mrs. Wight's daugh ter was sick and wanted to go at once to see if she could not be of some help, but it was getting late, so she went home. She gave her name as Mrs. Willi ts, and said she had been here about a week. Her husband is the owner of the famous trotter Silkwood, and their home is in Santa Ana. Cal. She seemed anxious to avoid publicity and that with her earnest manner and honest effort to help a total stranger prove she has faith in her strange visions and that they result in good. She told of several instances where she had been able to be of benefit to people in distress and said that her husband would laugh at her and attempt to dis suade her from following up her incli nation to aid those who had excited the feeling, but that she would worry until she was sick unless she did. It is really a matter of health with her, because she cannot rest until she has made an effort to aid in some way the sufferer who has visited her in the dream or vision. Mrs. Willits is not a woman who gives readings or hearings or goes into a trance and gets a glimpse of the future; neither does she see spirits. She is a quiet little woman who tries to do good, and does it. although there is a little of the seemingly unnatural in the method, of her learning of the woman in jail who needed both moral and material aid. Yaqui Guerillas. Phoenix, Ariz.. June 25. H. "W. Gill, of Philadelphia, who is here from a pros pecting: trip in Mexico, says the Yaqui Indians have nearly all abandoned the war path.
