Governor of Mississippi Makes Some
Remarkable Discoveries.
Jackson, Mich., Aug. 23. Governor
Long-ino has issued a statement of the
condition of the state treasury, show
ing that on August 15 he found therein,
by actual counting. $677,847 when the
books called for $540.43$ a shortage of
J162.621. Treasurer Stowers was. how
ever, allowed credit for bills, drafts,
etc.. amounting to Sao.uuO, leaving the
shortage $lu7,tj-l. The governor then
1 indulged the hope that the amount
of said shortage would be replaced if
opportunity and time were given before
the result of said count was made pub
lic and that the state might thus re
cover the money without further trou
ble, explanation or loss. I therefore in
the interest of the state enjoined the
secrecy ol those present in the whole
proceedings, and agreed with Air. Stow

the money on Tuesday, August L0. On

ferer hopes forever ; but
almost as soon as the little blisters and
pustules appeared the poison had reached
the blood, and will break out at regular
intervals and each time in a more a'era,
vated form. This poison will loiter in the
system for years, and every atom of it
must be forced out of the blood before you
can expect a perfect, permanent cure.

Story of the Orer t hrow of Chas.
M. llajs.
Collis P. Huntington's Newpliew
the Cause.
Samuel Morse Felton Likely to
Succeed HayS.
Felton Is a Smooth Political
Railroad Magnate.
The San Francisco Call says: When
Chas. M. Hays assumed office as presi
dent of the Southern Pacific roaJ on
the first day of the present year one of
his tirst acta was to announce that the
"road was out of politics." Not only In
interviews with the press but at the
public banquet board the new president
declared his policy. There was joy in
the heart of the farmer and chagrin in
the breast of the country politician.
The one was to receive the benefit of
good railroad service, while the other
realized that Ms "perquisites" were to
be cut off.
There was a "nigger in the wood
pile," however. When the James Speyer
Who May Become President of the South
ern Pacitio.
syndicate, controlling the bulk of the
Southern Pacific stock, selected Hays
as president of the road, the eastern
combine overlooked the well-earned
merits of H. E. Huntington, nephew of
the deceased president of the line.
Nephew Huntington, recognized as a
great railroad manager and sincere
friend to California, had expected for
many years that the toga of his dis
tinguished uncle would fall upon his
shoulders and when he was given the
"overlook" he "sulked like Achilles in
his tent."
The selection of Hays for the presi
dent's chair and the ' taming down" of
Nephew Huntington led to many pre
dictions in railroad circles. On all sides
statements were made that Nephew
Huntington would "get even" and se
cure the downfall of Hays.
On February 2 of this year the pos
itive news was announced that the in
terests in the Southern Pacihc road of
the Huntingtons, Crockers, Searles and
Stanfords estates had been sold to the
great Vanderbllt-Haxri.-nan combine,
that meant a direct line from New York
to San Francisco via the Union Pacific.
The Harriman syndicate engineered the
deal by which the Vanderbilts secured
control of the Union Pacific road, and
H. E. Huntington possessed large hold
ings in that line.
Gossip says that Nephew Huntington,
affiliated with the Harriman syndicate
in the Union Pacific road, proceeded
to "wield the hammer" to the detriment
of President Hays of the Southern Pa
cific. The Harriman syndicate made Sam
uel Morse Felton the president of the
Chicago & Alton road, and it is only
natural to suppose, taking into con
sideration the relations of Nephew
Huntington and the Harriman syndi
cate, that young Huntington used every
endeavor to get Hays ousted and have
the Harriman syndicate select "one of
its own."
Felton is looked upon In the railroad
world as one of the greatest diplomats
of the times. Not only has he, like
other leaders, grown up in railroad
work, but he lias made a name for
himself as a politician and "puller of
political wires." He has the record of
having done in the state of Illinois
what the late Collis P. Huntington did
in California.
The many removals of "old timers"
is credited to the influence with Hays
of General Manager Kruttschnitt,
whose relations with young Huntington
have not always been of the most cor
dial nature.
It Is a foregone conclusion that when
President Hays vacates his position In
favor of Samuel Morse Felton he will
be accompanied by General Manager
Kruttschnitt and that Nephew Hunt
ington will dansle Kruttschnitt's scalp
at his belt and boast that he has oust
ed his former antagonist.
Hays meant well enough, but he was
not the master of his own wishes. He
was subordinate to those of the syndi
cate that gave him a job worth $65,000
a year. Though Hays has been presi
dent of the Southern Pacific system for
six months or more, he has not spent
a month in the state of California. The
bulk of his time has been spent in trav
eling on special trains going east to ap
pear "on the carpet" before the syndi
cate that selected him. and that did not
approve heartily of his methods.
Hays had so little to say in the
affairs of the Southern Pacific that
when he backed Kruttschnitt up in the
matter of closing the ferry boat bars
the political pull was so strong Hays
was obliged to cancel the order.
Samuel Morse Felton. who will be the
next president of the Southern Pacific
railroad, was born on February 3, 1853,
in Philadelphia. Pa.
He entered the railway service In
August, 1&68. from which time to 1870
he was rodman to the Chester Creek
New York. Aug. 23. It is reported in
railway circles, avers the Times, that
Charles M. Hays has been asked to re
turn to the Grand Trunk railway as
vice president and general manager.
Orient Expects to Have Its Whole
Line in Operation by That Date.
Kansas City, Aug. 23. Chief Engineer
M. P. Paret, of the Kansas City, Mexi
co & Orient, expects the line of that
road from Kansas City to Sweetwater,
Texas, 650 miles, will be In operation
by the close of next year, that the road
will be connected up and in operation
to a point beyond Chihuahua, Mexico,
by the close of 1903, and that trains will
begin running through from Kansas
City to Port Stilwell by midsummer,
The total length of the line will be
about 1,600 miles, as shown by the pre
liminary surveys which have just been
completed. This is 60 miles less than
the estimated length before the surveys
were made, the saving having been
made in Mexico, w here it is of greatest
advantage owing to the heavy work in
both construction and operation.
The first division of the Orient to be
put in operation will probably be that
part of the line extending from Wichita
to the Cimarron river, 130 miles, wrhich
it is expected will be ready by next
February or March, dependent upon
the time when the company can get the
steel already ordered.
The next division to be operated will
likely be that from Sweetwater, Texas,
to the Red River, 170 miles. This will
be ready for rails by next March and,
unless bridge work prevents, should be
in operation by next June.
The third division to be operated will
probably be that between Kansas City
and v ichita, 190 miles, which It is ex
peeted to have completed the latter
part of next year, and abovit the same
time, the line between the Cimarron
and Red rivers, 160 miles, will be ready
thus forming a connected road from
this city to Sweetwater.
Santa Fa Does Not XJmo Its New
10,000 Ton Coal Dump.
Emporia, Aug. 23. A couple of
months ago the Santa Fe took great
pains and went to considerable expense
to build a 10.000 ton capacity coal stor
age dump. Since it was finished there
iiave not been 1,000 tons of coal dumped
through it, altogether, and at present
there is scarcely more than 100 tons
there. It may be that the sole purpose
was to provide a place where coal could
be stored when it was plentiful and
cheap to be Teady in time of emergency
or high prices. That is not the sort of
time tljat has been prevailing for the
last six weeks or two months, and
probably the dump will be filled up if
tne company can ever get more coal on
hand than is demanded at once for the
use of the engines. It seems strange
to people on the outside, that there
should be a scarcity of coal in middle
of the hot weather, but such is the case.
Ab soon as the dump can be filled and
the new chutes built there will be a
revolution in the method of handling
coal at this place. In the first place
an entirely different sort of coal will
be used, the fine coal will be replaced
by large chunks. This is because the
fine coal would slack, where it must
be exposed under the dump. All the
coal that comes in for railroad use in
the dump bottom cars and will go di
rectly to the dump where it will be
stored. Then It will be loaded onto
cars, run to the chutes as needed, and
emptied by the double track cable sys
tem, which requires only two men to
do the wort of live.
Grading of the New Extension From
Mineral to Begin.
Joplin, Aug. 23. The Missouri, Kan
sas and Texas surveying corps ran
lines to the Missouri Pacific tracks In
Joplin, thus completing the survey
from Mineral. The "Katy" survey
comes into Joplin almost parallel with
the Memphis track, and when the zinc
wrorks are reached the "Katy" track
will come In over the old Missouri Pa
cific right of way.
This is the lower end of the Pacific
yards, and will be the entrance of the
"Katy" road into Joplin.
It is said that a grading force will
be here by the end of the week, and
that construction will begin at this end
of the line next Monday.
The "Katy" officials are now hurry
ing things, and It is their intention to
build as quickly as possible.--

Mayor Hughes Will Try to Find Out
About Taxes.
Mayor Hughes has decided to get to
gether all the statistics he can about
the amount of taxes which he claims
the county ewea the city on property
purchased at delinquent tax sale, and
then make a report to the council, and
try to get the council to order the city
attorney to sue the county for taxes
In that way Mayor Hughes indicates
that he has profited by his encounter
-with the attorney general. He is go
ing to take Mr. Godard's advice, and
ask the courts to arbitrate between
himself and the county, instead of call
ing upon the attorney general to per
form this function.
Ed Smith, assistant city engineer, is
being used by the mayor now as offi
cial statistics collector. Mr. Smith has
stopped drawing maps and figuring on
estimates, and is digging up old rec
ords at the court house and tabulating
the results for Mayor Hughes' delec
tation. Mr. Smith expects to ascertain
for the mayor just what amount of
money the city has "coming" from the
county on back taxes. It is thought
that it will reach about $8,000.

venturesome navigators passed down
the St. Joseph harbor and entered the
lake the boys were cheered and god
speed was extended to them by scores
of friends who had gathered at the dock
to witness the first few hundred yards
of their sixty-two mile voyage to Chi
cago. The oarsmen have blankets and fooi
stored away in the stern of their boat,
and if overtaken by an unexpected
squall or otherwise delayed they will
be in a position to remain in the craft
for several days without enduring any
