At first I paid little attention to a slight pain across the small of my

Kansas City, June 27. President A. E.

eral contracts for work on the new line,
and construction from Port Stilwell, the
Pacific coast terminus of the road, east
ward, will be begun within a few days,
as will also work at different points on
the route between Kansas City and the
Mr. Stilwell confirmed the report al
ready published that a contract cover
ing a period of 15 years and providing
for close traffic interchange between the
Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul and the
Kansas City, Mexico & Orient had been
signed, under which through train ser
vice will be maintained from Chicago to
Port Stilwell, where connections will be
made with steamship lines ta the Orient
and South America.
While Mr. Stilwell refused to confirm
it, a report, which it is believed is en
titled to credence, is current that an
other important traffic arrangement for
the new road to the Orient is about to
be signed. As the contract with the
Milwaukee covers the territory north of
Kansas City pretty thoroughly it is ev
ldently with a line reaching some other
territory and, while those informed on
the subject speak of it very guardedly
it may not be amiss to speculate that
thia new contract is to give the Orient
road entrance to St. Louis. The Texas
& Pacific was suggested in this connec
tion, but it is not certain that is the
line, in question. It is possible the con
tract is to be with a California line.

greatest changes that has even occurred
in the Jesuit province of Maryland, will
take place at an early date, by order

Point, where property of considerable
value has been acquired.
The old novitiate was founded by
Father John McElroy, S. J.. who re
ceived ordination as a priest from
Archbishop Neale, of Baltimore, in 181.
and died at Frederick, in 1873. Many cel-
ebrites are buried in its shadow, among
them the third chief justice of the Uni
ted States, Roger Brooke Taney, and
the Jesuit Missionaries Villiger, Tuffer,
Senders and Vigilante. In the trans
feral to New York, these graves will not
be disturbed. Father Edward Purbry,
is now provincial of the Jesuits in this
province which originally covered the
country, but at present embraces only

great strike on the St. Louis Transit
company's system inaugurated May 8.
Cars are in operation on all the lines

ized, except on those running north and
south. Many thousand persons, because
of the boycott and through sympathy
for the strikers, patronize wagons and
busses manned by ex-street railway em
ployes. This is especially true in the
north and south sections of the city.
Today the remainder of the force of
Sheriff Pohlman's posse comitatus
about 600 men, was mustered out of ser
vice for good, the board of police com
missioners deciding they were no long

half of which would be retained for ac

to bring about harmonious relations between the employer and the employe. A joint agreement was signed recently
