Success of Oil as Locomotive
Fuel in California.
Dollar a Darrel Oil Equals Four
Dollars a Ton Coal.
SONE TEST FIGURES
Twelve Miles Gain Per Ton in
Running by Oil.
Many Otber Advantages In New
and .1?,ermanent Fuel.
Oil for locomotive fuel at one dollar
per barrel is an economical equivalent of
coal at four dollars per ton. This staae
ment is made on the authority of the
general manager of the lines which in
this country have entered most exten
sively upon the use of oil as a substi
tute for coal for this purpose. The fact
that coal at the same points where oil
is obtainable at the price named ordi
narily costs from seven to eight dollars
per ton is sufficient to account for the
present exclusive use of oil upou the
Southern California lines of the Santa
Fe system, and for the fact that the
rapidity of the adoption of the practice
upon the locomotives of the Southern
Pacific system in the same territory i2.
dependent upon nothing but the time re
quired to eftect the alterations in firebox
and tender to accommodate the change
from a solid to a liquid fuel.
Experiments in the use of oil as loco
motive fuel were begun several years
ago on the Southern California. lines now
a part of the Santa Fe system. Though
little experimentation was necessary to
determine its .erliciency and its cleanli
ness and ease of handling. on the part of
the fireman the use was for,a. considera
ble period only tentative, since the sup
ply was indeiinite and its resultant ecor
omy as compared with coal more or less
fluctuating The company has since ac
quired and developed valuable fields of
its own, and though they are inadequate
to the demand the outside sources of
supply are sufficiently numerous to af
ford a basis for the prediction that coal
will not aoan be resubs'tituted for oil as
fuel for the locomotive and shop plants
of this part of the system. The Southern
Pacific has more recently taken up the,
system with considerable energy and
has about SO locomotives equipped for oil
burning-. The Santa. Fe has about 100.
in the tests undertaken by the. Santa
Fe to determine the relative efficiency
of oil and coal as fuel irrespective of
cost, the official figures, giving the re
FURS, show that the number of miles run
per ton of coal was 26.7 and the number
of miles run per ton of oil was 38.46, a
gain of 11.76 miles. or about 44 per cent
in favor of oil. Six baxrels of oil of 42
gallons to the barrel are about equal ta
a. ton in weight. At a cost of $1 per
barrel, which is perhaps above the av
erage price paid by the railroad compa
nies, from the above figures it Will be
seen that the service of a ton of oil cost
ing S6 is equivalent to the service of a
quantity of coal costing $10.44 at $7.25
per ton. On a. daily consumption of
about 2,000 barrels by the Santa. Fe and
about three-fourths that quantity by the
Southern Pacific, the total saving is
worth considering. The Taos Angeles City
railway consumes about 6,000 barrels per
month, the Eas Angeles Terminal rail
way 3,000 and several electric railway
companies at the same point use front
1,00 to 5,000 barrels monthly in their
In addition to the saving in the lalyar
of tiring there are other advantages that
may reasonably be claimed for th,e fuel.
There is no probability of setting tires
along, the right of way, since there are
no flying cinders nor ashes, and since
there is practically no smoke there is no
discomfort to passengers from these
sources. There is no labor of cleaning
grates and ashpans, or handling. cinders,
and tenders are supplied with fuel in
about two minutes without waste at the
station or along the track. The room re
quired for storage is about the same as

the monster engines TIONV being built and
those in use offer a riddle to the man
of avoirdupois at the throttle and to
the heavy fireman whose highest as

The facts are that on many of these
big locomotives engineers find it difficult
to wedge into the places assig-ned tbem

There will possibly be a struggle be

went out on strike and those who did
not in reorganizing- the O. R. T. The
men who walked out Will endeavor to
expel those who, did not. 'Those who
did not go, out and ,some of those who,
did will endeavor ta overthrow Presi
deni, Dolphin and his administration.
'Whichever side prevails it Will be a.
pretty fight to watch and it is evident
that a complete reorganization of the
order is necessary before it will be rec
ognized by the Santa. Fe.
Most of the operators who lost their
positions through the strike, in this
vicinity, are readily being placed else
where. The Rock island took as many
of them as it could use withOut discrim
ination or objection. Among- the losing
operators a. few maintain that Dolphin
had no other alterna,tive than to order
the strike, and say they would have
run had the entire order gone out.
The majority view it more clearly as a
mistake all around, and itch for the
leader's downfall. Some of the strikers
have given up the order entirely.

Springs and Aspen, ticket brokers will
be practically shut out from these three
towns by a. license.
In Grand Junction the license for a
ticket broker will be 3250, in Glenwood
Springs $200 and in Aspen S200. The
general passeng-er agents persuaded the
city councils in the three owns to tx
this tax, and to all intents and purposes
it Will shut the scalper out of the town,
for the business is not of sufncient im

The efforts of Mr. Dailey and Major
Hooper to kill off ticket brokers from

C. & N. PENSION SYSTEM.
Details of the Plan Put in Effect New
Chicago, Jan. 2.The Chicago &
Northwestern railway on January 1, put
into effect its system for pensioning its
old and deserving, employes. The system
is in most respects identical with that
which the Pennsylvania railroad put in
effect some years ago. Any employe
who is between 65 and 69 years of age
and who has been thirty years in the
service of the road, and who is disabled
in service, will receive a pension of ,one
per cent per month calculated upon his
monthly rate of wa,ges for the last ten
years of his service with the company.
Any employe, who has reached the
age of 70 years, and who has been thirty
years in the employ of the company,
will be retired upon a pension of one
per cent per month calculated upon the
monthly rate of wages paid him for the
last ten years.
To carry out the plan the Northwest
ern has established a pension board
composed of William A. Gardner, gen
eral manager; Edward C. Gardner, chief
engineer; Richard C. Aiston, general
superintendent; Robert Quayle, super
intendent of motive power and ma
chinery; NV. H. Sterritt, auditor of ex
penditures. Northwestern officials claim that the
new system will benefit 80,000 persons on
their lines and that the cost Will be but
C.:00,000 per annum.

Pacific have been given annual plisses

MAY BUY AUTOMOBILES.
Parkhurst-Davis Company Traveling
Men May Use Them.
The ,automobile may still become a
competitor with the horse, and that by
way of real usefulness. The Parkhurst
Davis Mercantile company of Topeka
has gi,ven some thought to a plan by
which the auto ma3t become a saver of
time and money. In fact the report
has g-ained credence that this company
has already placed an order for horse
less carriages to be used by its repre
sentatives in traveling- fre,m one town
to another However, sucV is, not the
case. "A number of our men were here
last week," said W. H. Davis, president
of the company. "They talked over a
good many plans for the future, and
perhaps one of these was the scheme to
use automobiles instead of hiring livery
rigs. The autos could be used by our
men in the western part of the state
where roads are good and trains few.
They, will travel at nearly the same
speed as the ordinary mixed train and
about twice that of a livery team, and
that means a grcat saving in money
spent for livery bills and in time lost
waiting for trains. The roads are suit
able for their use about nine months in
the year. lri the Indian Territory the
plan might work rnore successfully than
here. The climate is warmer and the
distance between railroads is sometimes
eighty and ninety miles As so-on as the
price of the carriages is placed lower
we can consider such a proposition fav
orably. At $250 we could afford to in
vest in several of them at once. At
present an auto accommodating two
persons and using either gasoline or
electricity as motive pc,wer costs about
$700. - Our men might take with them
at times specialists along other lines
and thus help to pay expenses. There
are, however, several pror3ositions to be
taken into con,sideration before the plan
is put into operation."
EXPERTS AS TO BOY'S AGE.
,Frorn the Omaha Bee.
A youth clad in the shabbiest gar
ments imaginable, but wearing a one
karat dia,mond ring, furnished a prob
lem in the criminal court that required
the wit and ingenuity of experts to
solve. It was necessary to ascertain the
lad's age, and before a, satisfactory es
, timate was made several attorneys, a
barber. a veterinary surgeon and a
judge had passed judgment unsuccess
fully. The boy is known to the police
as "Doe" Sileote. He was before Judge
Baker on the charge of having stolen
284 pounds of bullion from'a freight car
on a, Union Pacific sidetrack near the

"Doctor, come here," commanded the
court "How old are you?"
, "I never knew," replied the lad.
"It's going to be hard work to tell
this boy's age," observed the court. "Do
any of the complainants know anything
Detective Vizzard, of the Union Pa,-
elide railroad company, attempted to
prove that Slicoto has been stealing so
long he must be more than 16, but the
court would not accept deductions for
evidence. One of the attorneys then
jokingly made a remark that was taken
"There is a, man skilled in horsecraft,"
he, said, pointing to a veterinary sur
geon among- the spectators.
"Bring him up," instruCted the judge,
"and let's see If he can give us a clue."
The veterinary expressed the opinion
that Silcote is more than 16, as he had
several teeth youngsters do not enumer
ate among- their molars.
As a precedent for expert testimony
ha,d been established, an attorney for
the defense ak,ked leave to call a barber
from the crowd to express an expert
opinion of Si Icote's beard. The barber
thought he must be younger tha,n 16.
The court ruled finally that Si 'cote is
under legal age, and cannot be sent to
the penitentiary. He will be sentenced
to a term in the reform school.

"Old year's sorrow,
Cast off last night, will come ag:ain -tomorrow."
But hope, that gleaming taper light in
every human soul, illumes the portal of
each opening year. And with the hearts
still mellowed by the warmth and cheer
on every side, the many glimpses into the
better natures of our fellow men, we enter
into the mood of joyousness that pervades
the very atmosphere and step gaily with
the throng, over the threshold of the un
tried years, with the feeling that the past.
like a wornout garment, is put aside; and
we may begin all over again. And
straightway we do begin a very noble
reformation, in our own minds. We make
a mental resolution that past failures and
mistakes shall be the linger posts to guide
us to the right: forgetting that we set
up our milestones .as we go: 8.nd we are
going forward, not backward. And even

new pitfalls that are the undoing of our
good resolutions, in a, moment's space.
Let us hope the will is often taken for

through its proneness to error.
A FEW NEED-FULD RESOLUTIONS.
There ttre a few resolution that we
should have revised and rebound each
succeeding year. Not that we are likely
to wear them out with much usage. but
new bindings Will attract our interest and
remind us that we have not followed in
structions herein laid down.
One chapter should begin: Resolved,
That sunshine of the soul, being largely
a, matter of cultivation, and by reason of
much suffering. sin and sorrow, the pro
duction is limited and the harvest small,
we will endeavor in every wax, and, es
peeially by example. to increase this par
ticularly desirable element, and introduce
it especially into the lives of those who
must need both mental and material sun
light; those who dwell in the lonely places
of earth, 'mid the never changing shadows
of dull, poorly paid toil; comfortless
homes, sin, sickness aml dire poverty,
whose black pall never lifts. Though vve
may not better their financial condition
by so much as a dollar added to their
"'pay," we certainly can alleviate much
of the existing evil of their condition by

do not realize how farreaching are
the reflections tif each separate life. If
we doubt our individual influence, then
watch how infectious the spirit aroused
by some great event, whether the senti
ment be one of anger 'or joy. At Christ
mas the impulse is to give pleasure to
others. With the new year comes that
universal anticipation that makes the day
one of jollification and merriment. And
it is good to lengthen out to the last
ecler this cheerful mood. For cheerful
ness and joy are the mainsprings that
move Nature in her grand and endless
course with perfect harmony. Nowhere is
the gospel of cheerfulness so necessary
as in the home. And to the women le
given this mission. The home that post
sesses a cheerful wife and mother is not
only a veritable haven of rest, but the
safe harbor whose beacon light will guide
her bread winners safely past all rocks
and shoals with unfailing- certainty. The
woman whose cheerful epirit Can take
that "brave attitude toward life" that en
ables her to bear courageously the inevit
able burdens of her lifes environment
that strengthens her determination not to
fret or worry those who, for her sake,
are fighting- the hard battles in the world,
has rattched that altitude that proclaims
her price above rubies: and her influence
and example is not felt only within the
of the four walls she has made the unas
sailable bulwark of state a,nd society. a
happy home, but reaches to those she
knows not of.
Remember that happiness makes happi
ness. Therefore, as the glad bells "ring
out the old. ring in the new'," resolve that
you will cultivate a brave and cheerful
spirit; that you will smile even in the
face of misfortune. And if ever you are
tempted to indulge in the luxury of be
moaning adverse circumstances, count
your blessings, like the good old colored
mammy, and go smiling on your way.
NE;Wir YEAR DINNERS.
These do not vary materially from the
Christmas dinner, though the plum pud
ding is generally omitted for a lighter,
more delicate dessert. And in many fams
ilies the king of the C'hristmas feast is
deposed. Really, to carry out the idea of
a new ebginning, it were wel lf an en
tire change were made in the menu. and
only simple, wholesome viands substi
tuted, with a resolution to carry this
plainer mode of living through the year.
The New Year,-not being so essentially a.
family festival, but ruled almost entirely
by the spirit of merriment. the day is
given to less feasting and more to amuse
ments of various sorts. Christmas, spite
of the spirit of good will. is more or less
conservative in its observances,while New
Year ie eosmopolitan. Everyone is young
agaiet, and expected-to enjoy their share
of frolic and fun. Many wind 1113 the day

calls for midnight "collation." The na

of courses depend on when the previous
