3 RAILROAD NEWS. The Bock Island Offers $100 For a Name. California Limited Train Must Be Christened. , ORIGINALITY WILL WIN Kock Island Will Get Ideas From Thousands of Brains. Details of the Elegant Service Offered. During the coming week newspapers In all parts of the United States will contain notices of a cash prize of 10 In gold that is offered by the Rock Island railroad for a suitable name for the new Chicago-California limited daily train that is to be inaugurated Novem ber 1. This week from the office of K. W. Thompson, assistant general passenger agent, in charge of the lines of the Rock Island west of the Missouri river, the following notice is being sent for pub lican in the western papers: "A name is wanted for the new daily limited train to California to be placed In service November 1, 1902, by the Rock Island system and Southern Pacific company, via the El Paso Short Line. The competition is open to the public, and conditions involve no fees of any kind. For circular of instructions ad dress at once Jno. Sebastian, passenger traffic manager Rock Island system, Chicago." The notice will appear in no less than four thousand newspapers In all parts of the United States. In this manner the offer will reach thousands of peo ple. The correspondence that will fol low will be tremendous. Each appli cant must first write to Chicago for a circular of instructions.- The circular which is sent to each person who wishes to submit a name will be accompanied by a postal card on which will be print ed blank space for the suggestion of & name which the contestant desires to offer. Only answers on the cards fur nished by the railroad will be considered. In conjunction with and through traffic arrangements made with the Southern Pacific railway company, the Kock Island system announces the in auguration of a limited passenger serv ice between Chicago and California, be ginning November 1. The train which the Rock Island system will put into service it is claimed will excel any other train of its kind in service In thk west. A number of new features in railway service have been added to make this train attractive to the traveler. Among the new features is the establishment of the Book Lovers' library on each of the ten or eleven trains that will be re quired to make the daily service be tween Chicago and California. The Book Lovers' library is too well known to need anything in the way of explana tion. Each patron of the train, whether lie be a member of the library or not. will be entitled to use the books while an the train. The Book Lovers' library will be In the composite library, smok- ' ing and buffet car. Another library of late and popular books will be in the parlor of the observation -car, thus hav ing two libraries on each train. A feature that will prove of value to the business man will be the prepara tion of the market and stock reports which will be made and daily furnished for those on each train at various hours of the day. Another thing which will prove at tractive and which has heretofore been unknown on any of the trains running west of Chicago is the bath room fa cilities. A barber shop will also be a feature of each train. The equipment of each train will con sist of a special mail car, a composite car, a dining car which will be carried the entire distance of the trip, stand ard 12-section double drawing room sleepers, one compartment sleeper and one 10-section observation sleeper, which will have in addition to the observation parlor, an .enclosed wide observation platform in the rearV Another feature that will prove at tractive will be the serving of after dinner coffee at the pleasure of the pas sengers in either the composite or ob servation car. Only the regular fares will be charg ed. However the train will not be al lowed to the use of those carrying pass es. The time which the train will make, it is hoped will be .considerably less than that of any present schedule. The only thing lacking for this new service now is an appropriate name for the train. Consequently the -cash prize of $100 is offered for the best suggestion. In suggesting a name originality should take all precedence. It must not be patterned after the name of any other train. It should at the same time be peculiarly significant of the route, the destination, the service and equipment ELECTRIC RAILWAY TRAIN'S. New York Central to Run Them Into New York. The decision of the New Yorft Central to use electricity instead of steam on all trains in and out of New .York city a distance of thirty miles from the sta tion has caused considerable discussion regarding the probability of the sup planting of steam by electricity on rail roads generally. W. C. Brown, third vice president, was asked what he thought about this question, and re plied: "No man can tell about that for certain. The officials of the New York Central have determined in their own minds that electricity will do the work they have planned for it. If it does so, it is natural to . ask, Why not use it over the entire system? At present the economy which such a change would bring would not warrant the expendi ture. We have notrdecidedJ what kind of a system we shall use, whether third rail or otherwise. The first installation will be 100,000 horsepower, and will cost about $10,000,000." FIRST PASSENGER TRAIN. Orient Will Inaugurate Its United States Service Sunday. . The first passenger train to be run over the tracks of the Kansas City, Mexico & Orient railway in the United States will carry an excursion party from Harper and Anthony, Kas., to Waldron, O. T., and return next Sun day. Two passenger coaches for the Orient have arrived at Anthony, and this will be their initial service. Reg ular passenger traffic will not be estab lished for a time. The freight business of the road since operation began on the Kansas and Oklahoma division a few days ago has been highly satisfactory to the management, and large quantities of freight are still awaiting' shipment. Track laying has been temporarily sus pended, pending the completion of the bridge over the Big Sandy, which work is delayed by the non-arrival of long piling for the 150 feet in the center. These have been shipped and are due to arrive any day, after which the work will be pushed, material being now on the ground for the completion of the road to Carmen. The line of the Orient east out of Chihuahua, Mexico, has been in opera tion for some time, and track laying is now in progress from Port S til well east, where the line will soon be put in operation. Track laying will con tinue in four places, east of Port S til well, east of Chihuahua, north of Har per, Kas., and south of Waldron, O. T. Grading is under way at numerous other points, but rails will not be laid there until next year. THE OLD, OLD STORT. Western Roads Talking of Stopping the Exchange of Passes. If present plans are carried, out there will be no interchange of passes among western roads during VMS. The meeting of the pass committee representing all western lines has-been set. for early October, and the matter is already re ceiving considerable discussion. Until last year the pass agreements have been largely farcical, but it is expected this year that the agreement, which has been kept only by trunk lines, will te generally in force. J. V. Mahoney, chairman of the western trunk line committee, has been made chairman of the pass committee in place of George W. Ristine. Last year roads in the var ious associations agreed not to inter change passes, and the agreement fell through before it was put into effect. Finally the Central Passenger associa tion lines and the trunk line entered into the agreement, which the former were unable to keep. It was stated that this was largely due to the fact that the Wabash extends in eastern as well as western territory, and that it could not have one rule over a portion of its lines and another over other portions. What railroad managers would like to do is to place transportation on a pure ly commercial basis, but this will never be done until they obtain the nerve to defy the politicians and through them adverse legislation. Santa Fe Engineer Dead. J. W. Raynolds, a well known loco motive engineer, for some time running on the second division of the Santa Fe Pacific, died at Albuquerque of tuber culosis. Mr. Raynolds had been a resi dent of that city for many years and served his time as fireman on the Santa Fe. He was a member of the brother hood of locomotive engineers, and was one of the most popular men on that part of the system. He leaves a wife and three children. first aid to the wounded and injured in wrecss. - Railway surgeons have estimated that least 30 or 75 per cent of the deaths which now occurfrom injuries received in railway wrecks would not occur provided the injured received skillful and intelli gent aid at once. The value of the theory has appealed to the officials of the North BUILD OVER ABO PASS. Teach the Trainmen Surgery. Train employes of the Northwestern Road are to receive instruction in the science of medicine and the art of surg ery, so that they will be able to set a broken leg and bind up the wounds of the injured. W. A. Gardner, general manager of the company, now has the plan under con sideration, and together with Dr. Owen, chief surgeon of the company, is arrang ing the details. The purpose of the pro ject is to make every train crew on the Northwestern system competent to give THE fOtKE" POOD CO. Buflkta. N". TC 3 OkAS SissI fcavt Ms?

Jones, engineer of the Santa Fe cutoff, stopped off between trains in Albu querque while en route from Belen to Las Vegas. , Mr. Jones was returning from a two weeks" trip by buggy from Las Vegas to Finos Wells, and from the wells along the line of the survey over Abo Pass to Belen. His mission was to investigate the timber and water resources of the country over which the new road will run. He reports having found a good supply of water at dif ferent places along the route, and that an abundance of good timber can be found in the Manzano mountains. He says the Santa Fe short cut will be built over Abo Pass. REBUILD THE COAST LINES. Important Announcement of Proposed Santa Fe Improvements. Los Angeles, Cal., Aug. 8.

The Canary Islanders are among the most healthy people in the world. They live on gofio, which consists of wheat and corn parched or dextrinized in an iron ketUe over a fire, then ground and eaten mixed with water. Attention was first called to this food by an eminent physi cian visiting the Canary Islands, who was cured of chronic dyspepsia by eating gofio. A prominent Chicago physician lived on gofio for many years, which he obtained from the Battle Creek Sanitarium, where it was formerly used in the treatment of various digestive disorders. By an im portant discovery a great improvement was made in the preparation, which is now known ae Toasted Wheat Flakes, sweetened with Malt Honey, crisp and delicately sweet, its use cures indigestion and chronic constipation. and drawing about three feet of water. It is one of the finest crafts that has ploughed the waters of the Kansas river in years. - ... . In order that provisions for emergencies might be complete, C. H. Sharp, the Ok lahoma contractor, has bought from the Santa Fe an additional tank to be used along with the steam shovel whenever needed. It has capacity of 4,200 gallons of water and Thursday was being gone over by the painters. Machinist Charles Hunt, who has been putting in an enjoyable vacation on the j Atlantic coast, eeems to De continuing nis enjoyment.

Two thousand tons of coal have been stored at Wellington, although It was the intention of the company to have 5,0) tons there at this time. The scarcity of fuel in the west seems to be general. Mrs. F.. J err am and daughter, Miss Lulu, have gone to New York, where they will sail for England. The main object of their visit naturally is to attend the coronation, but they will spend two months chiefly in London visiting kin. They have been away from that country about 8 years. Fred Jerram of the Santa Fe machine shop is a son of Mrs. Jerram. Greer Arthur, an employe in the senate folding room at Washington, D. C. is in Topeka for a few- days' visit with rela tives and iu a short time will go -to his home at Logan for a fortnight's recupera tion before resuming his place at the na tional capital.

Frank Jones, who has charge of the en gineering force that is laying out the work of changing the yard tracks here for the new shop plant, is expected to wind up the job this week and go to Kansas City Monday. The rearrangement of the lines there incidental to the erection of the new "in" freight depot was commenced some weeks ago, but owing to certain objections which arose soon afterward, their comple tion has been delayed until this time. G. C. Grout of the water service is planning a trip that would make the mouth of a "grind" water. In a few days he and Mrs. Grout, and Mr. and Mrs. Charles Hoyle, of St. Joseph, Mo., will leave for Colorado Springs. Thence they plan to go into Cottonwood Lake, a body of water located about 130 miles from that city and providing an excellent opportunity for those who like fishing to gratify that desire. A part of the way they will camp out, and sufficient time will be spent for a most enjoyable va cation. With the paper used for railroad tickets right now it is difficult for a man to de fraud a company by erasing or endeavor ing to remove any of the writing done by the seller of the ticket. Tests have been made In the chemical laboratory here with the intention of finding some chemical whereby ink might be bleached out and rendered indistinguishable and in practi cally every case the impossibility of success in such an effort was demonstrated. Red Ink showed slight signs of fading in the sunlight, but the light would not touch the other kinds used. Corn fables have begun coming on the maiket although the demand thus fa has been somewhat light. Here is one that sounds ripe and was picked up at a cheap price: The other day a 39-car train left Topeka yards for Emporia; going up Pauline hill the link-pin in the car next to the engine broke. After the most of the train had been run back down the in cline the crew with some difficulty se cured a thick woody corn-stock, from an adjacent field, put it in the place of the pin and proceeded to Emporia without further bother fryn that source.
