Each Department of the Shops Is Backing a Favorite. San Bernardino, Cal., June PI. Ther. was a merry war at the Santa Fe shops yesterday, the prize fought for being the location of picnic grounds for th shopmen's holiday, which will take place next month. Ballots were the ammunition used. And when it was ill over the judges declared it a draw be tween Hedondo and San Diego, and it will probably be some days before nnui decision is made. For several hours yesterday Chair man Perkins of the general committee was busy canvassing the several de partments at the shops in order to de termine, by popular vote, which of the resorts was lavored by the majority of the employes. When the balloting had been concluded it was found that the shops were divided between Redondo and San Diego, Santa Monica getting but a scattering vote. The rip-track men favored Redondo, while the boys in the couch shop hud set their heart upon the -southern resort, and so ot thioueh the several departments offsetting the eft'm -r in a manner divided the vote almost exactly. At a meeting of the committee last evening Chairman Perkins one that held an. nounced the appointment of the com. mittee winch was agreed upon last Saturday night. It is composed of J. H. Diirhtfoot. of the shop office; C. L. Wilson, of the boiler shop, and Beii Witham, fire chief. This committee will leave for the two favored resorts tomorrow morning and will later in the week report what it fin is in the way of accommodations. Aft'-r this information is given om the shops will be canvassed a second time ;;nd the resulting vote will deter mine which of the two resorts will be the ph-nic grounds for pie:;. This idea orieinateel with Mr. Perkins. He says: "I want the men to decide the matter. If ther vote to take their families the l-j distance to Coronado then we will go there, but the matter is not settled. After the committee reports the head officials must be com municated with and the vote tnk-n. the officials' opinion also having weight" and it will be at least Wednesday if next week before the date and location will be definitely decided. AN OFFICE WITH GOULD. A. C. Bird Given a Position of High Authority. Although nothing official has yet been given out in relation to the conference held in New York between Presidents George Gould of the Missouri Pacific and Joseph Ramsey, jr., of the Wabash and Vice President A. C. Bird, who was re cently selected to assume control of the Gould traffic interests, it is generally be lieved that Mr. Bird's position has been sustained by Mr. Gould. Mr.- Bird will have absolute control over the traffic af fairs of all the (could lines, including the "Wabash, and he will report direct to Mr. Gould. An office in New York city at the Gould headquarters, 196 Broadway, is being prepared for Mr. Bird, who will fre.fuently be calb-d on : east to confer with the chief executive j of the Gould system. He will also have an office in St. I.ouis in the new Mis souri Paeilie general office building. Seventh and Market streets, ami will make his head'iuarters in Chicago in the Western T'nion building, where his of fice is already established. Mr. J. M.

Stith, freight traffic manager of the Missouri Pacific-Iron Mountain, will go to Chicago in the ca pacity of assistant vice president in charge of traffic of the entire Gould sys tem. These changes will be brought about July 1. MEN DEMAND $1.60. i Tracn Bepairers Tie Up Work on the S Central Branch. According to the Concordia Blade, the work of repairing the flood damage or j the Central Branch is htimpered by a j strike.

There ar probably 10 to CO men involved in the movement there. The Prosper work train was ready to pull out this morn ing, but the men refused to go out un- less assured of the r having 110 crew the the vards.

Will See That Freight Trains Are Handled Expeditiously. The Atchison Globe savs: E. A. Aus- 1 tin. Santa Fe trainmaster, will make j headquarters in Atchison for awhile. In his opinion, through trains will be oper ated through Atchison for a month, j Four hundred c arloads of freight have j accumulated in Chicago, for far western ! points, and this will be handled through j Atchison. An engine cannot haul more 1 than eighteen cars between Atchison and I Topek i; figure it out for yourself. This is in addition to the freight accumu lating in Chicago every day. In spite of j the great number of trains west from Atchison, shippers find it difficult to get goods out. It is said to be probable that a train will be made up tonight for way points. At present the company has but one telegraph wire between Atchison and Topeka, and this is kept red hot with train business. A soon as possible, passenger trains will be scheduled. The situation is improving every day. BEAT THE ROCKEFELLERS Mexican Government Prevented Their Acquisition of Mexican National. New York. June 13. The Rockefellers are keenly interested in a statement ex pected from James Speyer & Co., which will make known the extent of the in terest which the Mexican government has acquired in the Mexican National railroad. The time expires then for de positing voting trust certificates of the road w ith Speyer & Co. The deal is regarded as, a black eye for the Rockefeller interest, which was understood to control the Mexican Cen tral road, the rival of the Mexican Na tional. The trip of young John D. Rock efeller to Mexico some months ago was said to have been for the purpose of studying the question of consolidating the two lines. NEW DOCK COMPLETED. Great Northern Can Handle 6,000, 000 Tons of Orn a Year. The developments in the very much mixed situation were rapid and sensa tional yesterday. The meeting of the representatives of those lines, held at St. Paul the day before, had decided that the one fare fur the round trip should be put in in order to meet the rate advertised by the Soo Line. The Great Northern will on Monday become the greatest iron ore carrying and shipping road in the world. The new West Superior, Wis., dock No. 3 will be turned over by the contractors on that date, and will give the road a total shipping capacity of 6.000,000 tons of ore a year. The new dock alone will handle 1,000.000 tons. With completed facilities, the West Superior Great Northern docks will handle more ore than either Two Harbors or the huge ore docks at Duluth. MAY BRING PEACE. New Move in the Chioago-St. Paul Rate War. Chicago, June 13. There was a very Important move today toward bringing about peace between the railroad lines east of Chicago and those extending to the northwest, when announcement was made that the latter had withdrawn from sale at St. Paul the cut rate tick ets to eastern points by way of Chicago. This action while it does not entirely settle the rate disturbances places the western and eastern lines on friendly terms. Kxcept the disturbance of rates from Missouri river points to Indianap olis this withdrawal of cutrate tickets through Chicago pretty well settles the difficulty in the western passenger ter ritory. FIXED IT UP. Mechanics' Strike on Kansas City Southern Is Declared Off. Kansas City. June in.

Chicago, June 13. The rate war which has been carried on for some time be tween the Chicago-St. Paul lines has srread until lines east of Chicago are in volved.

Testimony Is Given Reluctantly at Trial of Curtis Jett. Jackson, Ky., June 13. The feature today of the trial growing out of tlia Maroum assassination was the drift of evidence toward a conspiracy implicat ing county officials and others and tend, ing to show that Jett and White had no such motives as the consoirators, but were simply hired to kill J. B. Mar cum. who was the attorney for narties contesting the election of county offi cials. The defense during- the forenoon attempted to have the case continued on account of the absence of witnesses, and again in the afternoon owing to the illness of one of the attorneys of tho defense. In both instances Judge Red wine ordered the trial to proceed. Many of the witnesses summoned tes tified with the utmost reluctance. Wiley May, one of the witnesses called this afternoon, testified that he was passing the court house on a wagon just before the shooting and saw Jett follow White to the side door, but did not see Jett enter. He drove about 200 vards down the street and then heard the shooting. He was extremely reluctant, and re fused to testify further when he was cross-examined by Attorney French. An unusual number of correspondents arrived here today, including magazine writers and artists for illustrated papers. They will now find a quiet town. Provost Marshal Longmore has made no arrests for two nights and two days. Since he closed the "blind tigers" there has. been no shooting during the night. The free use of weapons in the carousals around these places led to re ports at times of bands of feudists com. ing into town to attack the jail.

RADICAL CHANGES. Regulations for Carrying Into Effect New Army Law. Washington, June 13. A committee of l- ot the general staff of w hich General lasker Bliss is chairman has nearly completed a draft of regulations for the government of the staff. The regulations carry the general staff act into effect will make radical changes in the army. The chief of staff will be all powerful person, uniting in himself all the theoretical authority exercised by the commanding general under the pres ent law and the powers heretofore'un offieially vested in the adjutant general. As drafted the new regulations leave lit tle or nothing of the adjutant generals department and less of the inspector generals department. The adjutant general will keep the records as now and the orders to the army will be pro mulgated and published by him. but th? chief of staff will direct the issuance of the orders. He will be the intermedi ary between the president and secretary of war and the army and staff bureaus will receive instructions and orders from the chief of staff in the name, of the secretary of war. The chief of staff will have the supervision of the troons of the line, will direct military operations and j in general wilt be the most powerful of ficer that ever held a position in the army in time of peace. Of course at all times he w ill be subject to the orders of the president and secretary of war. Not only the purely military matters sup posed to be vested in the commanding general are given to the new staff in the new regulations hut the supplies and equipments also are under his di rection. The new regulations make the general staff officers on duty in Washington boards to consider all matters requiring investigation and report including in spections. The general staff will rec ommend officers for detail and promo tion and th? enlistment and recuement of- soldiers also wdll be taken from the adjutant general's department and given to the general staff. An import ant feature not yet wholly determined relates to officers detailed from the general staff to the various army de partments. The regulations as prepar ed provide that the officers so detailed either to a department or with- a divis ion or brigade in the field, shall become the chief of staff of the commanding officer of the department or division of troops operating in the field. without regard to th? rank of any other staff officer in the command. The committee hopes to submit a. draft to General., Young today in order that he may send it to the secretary of war before he leaves the city. General Young will make a tour of the great lakes next week, leaving here on Saturday. Mountain Side Caved In. Asheville, N. C, June 13.

Page, Baraboo, Wis., Curator of the French Section of the Ebell Club, writes from 423 Fifth Ave. : "Peruna Is indeed a valuable remedy for the cure of tbat most troublesome thing, a summer cold. Last summer I caught a cold but paid no attention to it at first, but soon found it developed into a seri ous catarrh of the throat. I was very much worried as none of the ordinary remedies had any effect on it. I was advised to give Peruna a trial and In a few weeks' time I was so much better that I could sing without any effort, I therefore take pleasure in recommending Peruna. ---Sarah E. Page. Grand Recorder Daughters or Ameri- I can Independence, Miss Kate Fauser, 118 Brewster Si., Detroit, Mich., Daughter of American Independence, writes: "Last summer 1 caught a severe cold which settled on my lungs and I al most lost my voice and I felt most mis erable. I took treatment but noth'r.g did me any good until I took Perur.a One bottle brought me more relief than all the nostrums I had taken, and three bottles cured me completely. For tired and worn out women it is a boon." Colds are considered one of the neces sary ills of life. One is liable to catch cold both summer and winter, Vei y often summer colds prove fatal.
