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

Santa Fe Selects Route For the New
Mexican Cut-Off.
Albuquerque, N. M., Aug. 8. F. M.
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. It has been

heavy earnings of the Santa Fe during the

improving different parts of the system
had met the approval of the directors.
These plans include the rebuilding of 176
miles of track in California. Arizona and
New Mexico. The Santa Fe coast lines
will be torn up and 65-pound rails replaced
by 85-pound steel ones. This will include
the main tracks from San Francisco to Al
buquerque and from Los Angeles to Bar-stow.

FOOD OF THE CANARY ISLANDERS.
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.

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

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

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
