TOPEKA STATE JOUENAL, WEDNESDAY EVENING. NOVEMBER 27. 19QJ.
8 RAILROADNEWS. Switchmen's Strike Has Ended in Flat Failure. Lehigh Talley the Only Road Seriously Affected. TRAIXMEN OPPOSE IT. AT as a Conflict Between Riral Labor Unions. Duplicate of the Kecent Strike in Colorado. Pittsburg, Pa., Nov. 27. Judging by apparent conditions, the switchmen's strike begun this morning has proven a flat failure. The strike was ordered by the Switchmen's Union of North America and the claim was made early in the day by the union officers that every road in the city with the excep tion of the Pittsburg, Fort Wayne & Chicago, and the Pittsburg. Cincinnati, Chicago & St. Louis, would be tied up completely. The developments of the day however, demonstrated that only one road, the Lehigh Valley, was ser iously affected. On this road but one crew was at work and the road is badly crippled. The company officials, while admitting that freight traffic has been practically suspended, say that within twentv-four hours they will have all the men they need and work will be re sumed as usual. The other roads affected were the a. & O., twelve men out; Pittsburg Junc tion, a branch of the B. & O., fifteen men out; the Pittsburg & Lake Erie, four men out; the Pennsylvania, fifteen men out. One hundred and fifty would be a hish estimate of the men who struck. None of these roads suffered much inconvenience, because new men were readilv secured to take the places of the strikers, and some of the men on discovering that the strike order had not been generally obeyed returned to their places. A meeting was held this afternoon and the claim was made that the strike was a success as far as it had gone and that within forty-eight hours the mem bers of the union, about TOO, would be out. The demand of the switchmen calls for the enforcement of the standard scale of wages. It is claimed that the Monongahela con necting line signed the scale today, but the officials of the other roads say they are more determined than ever not to sign. The strikers have not the sym pathy of the other trainmen's unions. W. G. Lee, iirst vice grand master of the Brotherhood of Trainmen, is in the city, and says the members of his or ganization will oppose the present movement. Should the condition in the Allegheny valley as it existed today be continued longer than two days more the mills and factories along the Allegheny river depending on it for ray material will be compelled to close.

These circulars will be distributed by the thousand among Quakers and oth ers who are interested in the sugar beet country. AN ORIENT STO BY, Baid That the Use of Santa Fe Cutoff Will Be Leased. There Is considerable talk, says the Bmporia Gazette, about the Orient road leasing a right of way over the Santa Fe cutoff, from Emporia to Kansas City. What makes this look probable is the fact that the Orient survey be tween here and Kansas City is parallel and very close to the Santa Fe Ottawa branch known as the cutoff and be cause between here and Kansas City THE OFFSPRING OF HEREDITARY BLOOD TAINT.

John Eagan, the Orient's lawyer at this place says he thinks this is not proba ble. His Idea is that the. Orient will build independently and not use Santa Fe track. Also the Santa Fe runs so many trains daily over the cutoff that it would make it Inconvenient to form a conjunction with another road. Mr. Eagan says the Orient is surely coming but it always takes a long time to build a railroad. The Orient is now spending its strength on the Mexico part of the rofed. As for them leasing the cut off time alone will telL LANTRYS GET FIVE ENGINES. They Are Being Fitted For Oil Burn era in Santa Fe Shops. Lantry brothers of Strong City have made a deal with the Santa Fe whereby the company is to fit up five locomo tives for oil burners. These engines were lately purchased in the east and have been consumers of hard coal. The first has already arrived at To peka shops from Dayton, Ohio, and is an object of no little interest. It is an eight-wheel Dickson and is equipped with a steel pilot. All of them are to be ready for the Lantrys to use by about January 1. At that time two special trains will leave Strong City bearing the men and machinery with which they are to execute the two years' contract of filling th China ba sin at San Francisco. The event will be made an important one in the his tory of that town. GENERAL STJPT. HILTON. Sir. Mudge'a Stenographer Gets an Unexpected Promotion. Topeka people probably have not heard of the new job secured by W. C. Hilton, who has for some time been stenographer for General Manager Mudge. Here is what a Colorado Springs paper sasy of it: "H. U. Mudge, general manager of the Santa Fe; W. C. Hilton, general superintendent, of Topeka; J. E. Hur ley, of La Junta, division superintend ent; R. G. Parker, of Pueblo, also a Santa Fe official, are in the city on business connected with the railroad. They are all at the Alamo." It looks as though the Colorado Springs paper was trying to steal Mr. Hurley's job and give it to Mr. Hilton. WILL SUBSTITUTE GAS. Coal Chute in Chanute to Utilize New Power. Chanute, Kas., Nov. 27. The new coal chute in the Santa Fe yards is not yet in operation. The delay is now caused mainly by a change that had to be made in the engines. A gasoline engine was first ordered, but after the com pany struck gas it had to be sent back, and a gas engine is to come in its place. The new clute will be a great Improve ment over the old one when it gets in working order. THEY WANT PASSES. Large Number of Santa Fe Employes Going Away on Thanksgiving. There will be a grand exodus of Santa Fe people on Thanksgiving day. Elmo Whitmore, transportation clerk in the general manager's office, is working overtime to keep up with the rush of orders for Thanksgiving transportation issued by the various heads of depart ments for their employes. "It snowed today," he said as he held up a fat package of documents begin ning "Please issue to." Every order for transportation has to be separate, and must state the full particulars for the transportation desired; the name of the holder, the destination, reason for issu ance, time limit and numerous other things. A great many of the requests for transportation are for Kansas City, where a large number of the Santa Fe employes will go to attend the footbail game between Kansas and Missouri universities. Will Not Mix the Colors. Superintendent Chase of the Northern Pacific dining car service has issued an order stating that hereafter no negro waiters will be placed on dining cars having white cooks, and vice versa. Hereafter the crews will not be mixed. Cars having negro cooks will have negro waiters. This plan is adopted for the purpose of avoiding all friction among members of dining car waiters. The white waiters will wear Tuxedo coats, low-cut vests, black trousers, white collar, black tie and black shoes. Handsome Gifts to Brave Trainmen. A gold watch valued at $1,000 and a check for $500 have been presented to Engineer John Riley of the Pennsylva nia road in recognition of his act of bravery on May 21 last, when with an engine he checked the speed of a run away train near the famous Horseshoe curve, preventing a wreck. Checks of $200 cash have also been presented to Engineer William Black and Conductor Lundy of the same road who, on Feb ruary 26 last, pursued and captured a runaway engine near Manor, Pa.

Mudge. civil engineer, with headquarters in La Junta, both Santa Fe officers, were in El Paso with reference to the overhead crossing to be put over the line's tracks by the El Paso electric street car com pany. The viaduct is to be utilized a mile and a half west of El Paso in reaching the smelter. The railroad's engineers visited the locality and took observations. Track laying with the street car company has progressed as far as Sixth street on El Paso street. Improved Shop Facilities at Chanute. Among the improvements in the Santa Fe yards at Chanute Is a good sized addition to the car building de partment, adjoining Foreman Calder head's office. Machinery is to be put in this new shop that will make it pos sible for car repairing to be done on a much larger scale in Chanute than up to this time. Everything will be done except the building of new cars, and all the larger pieces of repair work that have been going to Ottawa will be done in Chanute. It is said that this new work will probably take eight or ten new men to Chanute, including 'several skilled mechanics from Ottawa. Increase in Freight Auditor's Force. Two new employes have commenced w-ork in the office of W. J.- Healey, au ditor of freight receipts for the. Santa. Fe. They are G. S. Neal and G. M. Abel. They have been assigned to the claims department. These employes are an increase in the force of that depart ment, no vacancies having been created to receive them. Lederman Goes to Mexico. D. B. Lederman, a clerk in the office of Superintendent of Machinery Player, has resigned his position to accept a better one in the mechanical depart ment of the Mexican Central. Mr. Le derman is a young railroad man of much experience. For six years he filled different clerical positions with the Missouri Pacific, entering the ser vice of that road in 1892. In October, 1S98, he came to Topeka beginning with the Santa Fe as shop timekeeper, and has held a number of positions in this department since then. He will leave Monday for the City of Mexico to as sume the duties of his new position. Making the Best of It In the discussions concerning the res ignation of John Player as superin tendent of machinery about the shops the men seem to unite on two points: That it is a good thing he is not going to sever his connection with the road" entirely; and that the man who is to take his place is all right, Newton Kansan-Republican.

St. Joseph, Mo., Nov. 27. A new base ball league to take In Minneapolis, St Paul, Kansas City and Omaha in the west, and Milwaukee, Indianapolis, Co lumbus and Toledo in the east , has been formed here, and the revolt in the western league was ended, an agree ment having been reached between President Hickey, W.

Conducted by Llda Ames "Willis, Mar quette building, Chicago, to whom all inquiries should be addressed. All rights reserved by Banning com pany, Chicago. Now For Thanksgiving'. It Is time to be getting ready for Thanksgiving. This distinctively Amer ican holiday is a legacy left us by our honest Puritan forefathers. It was from its very inception a feast day. Its first observance was in the fall of 1621, when stern old Governor Bradford in gratitude for a bounteous harvest which followed a period of sore distress, proclaimed a day of thanksgiving and feasting and in practical furtherance of his proclamation at once dispatched four men in search of game. Then game was not so scarce as in these days and the hunters soon returned with sufficient supply of game, prin cipally turkeys, to rejoice the heart of the brave little colony and satisfy their wants for days to come. In the hands of the thrifty housewife these good things were transformed into a very generous and surprising list of dishes for the great day, or days, for the ceremonies and feasting, includ ing the time of preparation, lasted about a month. The day would lose its significance if devoted to selfish pleasure and gratifi cation only. Do not forget the less for tunate and friendless, and those far from home. There is no sadder day in the year to the homeless American than this holiday. Each one knows of some one to whom Thanksgiving would bear a fuller meaning through the accept ance of our hospitality. INDIVIDUAL CUSTOMS IN FAM ILIES. In one household of Knickerbocker origin, after dinner has been discussed, there is a good old-fashioned experi ence meeting when each one of the family "reckons up his mercies," and makes public announcement of what he has to be especially grateful for. An established custom in one of the old Philadelphia families, where chil dren and grandchildren gather from "east and from west," is to have the coffee and fruit served in the family "sitting room" after the dinner. The coffee, piping hot, is brought up by the maid, poured by one of the aunts and passed around by two of the small children costumed in white aprons and caps which are kept in store for this festal occasion. The honor of being cupbearer pro tern. Is much sought after, the office 'being transfer able from year to year. In one New England home, fortunate In the possession of a store of colonial heirlooms, Thanksgiving day finds the twentieth century dining room meta morphosed into the replica of aft eighteenth century one. In front of the spacious fireplace are the crane, pot hooks and kettle, with the skillet, toast er and baker standing on the hearth. On the shelf above are the cider tank ard, iron candlesticks and tin lantern, while along its edge are festooned strings of drying apples. Above hang the old Queen's arm and powder horn. The ingle-sides are set forth with spinning and flax wheels, warming pan and bellows and quaint chairs, while pewter plates and porringers, alman acs and samplers lend realism to the scene. SPECIAL ACCESSORIES. While these are Impossible for the majority of our people, who are becom ing more and more nomadic in their habits; all the decorations of table and dining room should be in keeping with the day. A pretty idea is to bank the mantle with all kinds of fruits and small vegetables, purple grapes, brown cheeked pears, rosy apples, crimson beets and golden squashes mingled with oats, barley, ears of corn.autumn leaves and scarlet berries. Wind the chandelier with ropes of mosf and clusters of bitter sweet. Light tne table with candles placed in an tique iron, brass or silver candlesticks, and for the center piece, use your in genuity in evolving a jardiniere made from a small half pumpkin or cabbage. If you use the pumpkin, cut the edges In points, scoop out the center and fill with fruit, striving to get the best color effects. If only the cabbage is available, strip off the coarse outer leaves, take out the heart and fill the delicately col ored, green ball with yellow chrysanthe mums and the green of carrot, parsley or ferns. The bill of fare may be varied to suit Nervous Dyspepsia. A CURE FOR IT. Not a Patent Cure-All Nor a Modern Miracle, But Simply a Rational Cure For Dyspepsia. In these days of humbuggery and decep tion the manufacturers of patent medi cines, as a rule, seem to think their med icines will not sell unless they claim that it will cure every disease under the sun. And they never think of leaving out dys pepsia and stomach troubles. They are sure to claim that their nostrum is abso lutely certain to cure every dyspeptic and he need look no further. In the face of these absurd claims it is refreshing to note that the proprietors of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets have care fully refrained from making undue claims or false representations regardingthe mer its of this most excellent remedy for dvspepsia and stomach troubles. They make but one claim for it. and that is, that' for indigestion and various stomach troubles Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets is a radical cure. They go no farther than this and any man or woman suffering from indigestion, chronic or nervous dys pepsia, who will give the remedy a trial will find that nothing is claimed for it that the facts will not fullv sustain. It is a modern discovery, composed of harmless vegetable ingredients acceptable to the weakest or most delicate stomach. Its great success in curing stomach trou bles is aue to tne tact tnat tne meaical nronerties are such that it will digest whatever wholesome food is taken into the stomach, no matter whether the stom ach is in good working order or not. It rests the overworKeu organ ana repien lishea the bodv. the blood, the nerves, ere ating a healthy appetite, gives refreshing sleep and the blessings which always ac company a good digestion and proper as similation of food. In using Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets no dieting is required. Simply eat plenty of wholesome food and take these tablets at each meal, thus assisting and resting the stomach which rapidly regains its proper digestive power, when the tablets will be no longer required. Nervous dyspepsia is simply a condition in which some portion or portions of the nervous system are not properly nour ished. Good digestion invigorates the ner vous svstem and every organ in the body Anv drue-eist will tell vou Stuart's Dys pepsia Tablets give universal satisfaction. o Omeda dTjil Many people WJLA believe Rheu matism is a disease of the blood. Perhaps it is, and perhaps it is not. If it is a blood disease, why is it the pain often stays in the same place ? Why is it the blood doesn't always carry the disease all over the body and into every muscle and joint ? Your doctor may be able to explain mm it, but it is all guesswork any how. Omega Oil is what you ought to use for Rheumatism. It is to be well rubbed on the place where the pain is. No matter whether the trouble is in the blood or not Omega Oil goes in, finds it out and cures it. What's the odds so long as you get relief? Drink plenty of fresh water every night and morning while using Omega Oil. The water will keep the kidneys well flushed, and will bring about a quicker cure of Rheuma tism. Try this plan for two weeks and see the result, m the purse or the individual taste, pro viding that the national dishes, the real concomitants of the first Thanksgiving, find an honored place. Certainly it should be a feast where the special products of our own land should be enjoyed the turkrty, the potato, the In dian corn, the pumpkin the cranberry, barberry, apple, butternut, etc., should have preference, leaving foreign dain ties for other occasions.
