II. U. 3Indg Says Big Engines
Are All Right.
More Economical nd Less Likeljr
to Cause Wrecks.
Missouri 51an Has Wrong Idea
About Decapods.
Decapods Endorsed bj Santa Fe
Engineer of Tests.
W. E. McCully, chairman of the board
of Missouri railway commissioners,
made several statements recently which
were derogatory to the usefulness of the
big type of freight locomotives as com
pared to those of the smaller type. Mr.
HcCully's remarks were to the effect
that the managers of all of the big
trunk lines with whom he had con
versed, had expressed themselves as not
being satisfied with the big engines for
freight service. He also said that the
new type of engine does not make the
' time required of it, that they consume
an enormous quantity of coal, and that
they are hard on the fireman.
The managers of the other big roads
who now have the big engines In use
on their lines may be dissatisfied with
them but not so with the Santa Fe.
For the past year the Santa Fe has had
some of the largest engines in the world
In use on its lines and so far the offi
cials of the road have had no objection
to make regarding the manner in which
the engines have been handling the
work required of them. In fact Santa
Fe officials are ever ready to say a
word in praise of the big type of en
gine and consequently Mr. McCully's re
marks have resulted In considerable
comment among the local officials of
that road. When asked today for his
opinion of the large type of engine,H.
IT. Mudge, general manager of the Santa
Fe, said:
"The large engines are entirely satis
factory. They do not burn more coal
than some engines of smaller size al
though they do haul larger trains and
thereby reduce the number of meeting
points and delays.
"The Santa Fe has larger engines in
use on its lines than most roads and
its through freight trains, and particu
larly fruit trains, are making better
time than ever before and several days'
better time between the coast and Chi
cago than any other road.
"As to the statement that the big
engines are hard on our firemen, all I
have to say is that, as far as the Santa
Ke is concerned, it is not true. It is
easily to be seen that if a smaller
amount of coal is burned the work is
not heavier on the firemen. At the re
cent conference with the firemen that
whs one of the questions which came'
up for discussion. It was stated that
more coal was burned but we had rec
ords which showed plainly that less
coal was burned during the last year
than was burned during the same time
when the smaller engines were in use.
"Another advantage in the use of the
larger engines is that they obviate the
difficulties which result when a large
number of t.'ains are running on the
road. The larger engines can haul so
many more cars than the smaller ones
that it is no longer necessary to run
many trains and consequently we have
lessened the danger of wrecks and mis
haps." Mr. Mudge Is not the only one of the
local officials of the Santa Fe who is
loud in his praise of the big engines.
F. W. Thomas, engineer of tests for the
Santa Fe says:
"The small engines are not to be
compared to those of the larger types.
Any one of the engines now in use on
the lines of the Santa Fe is capable
of hauling more tonnage at a less ex
pense per mile than any of the smaller
engines. Consequently they are a
great deal more valuable to the road
than the engines of the lighter class."
Southern Pacific Will Take News

The Southern Pacific has a plan afoot
to catch all the worlds fair traffic out

It Gets Credit for the New Line to
San Diego, CaL.
Los Angeles, Cal., Jan. 27. San Diego
citizens are just as certain that the
new railroad planned for that city is
backed by the Rock Island as they .ore
that the line will be built. In railroad
circles the proposed line has attracted
a great deal of attention and many
rumors as to the ownership of the San
Diego Eastern are in circulation. The
most generally accepted theory is that
the Rock Island is the real promoting
force. The men in San Diego who are
supposed to be wise regarding the pro
ject keep remarkably silent, as does H.
T. Richards of this city, who holds the
position of chief engineer of the com
pany. They all refuse to talk, but
their silence adds strength to the be
lief of the San Diego populace.
Everywhere but in Rock Island! cir
cles it is stated as a fact that the sys
tem has acquired the El Paso and
Southwestern. In the region touched
by the Southwestern road the line is
known as the Rock Island, and it Is
seldom called the El Paso and South
western. This, in connection with the
announcement made in the Los An
geles "Herald" that the Rock Island
will form an alliance with the Mexican
Central, strengthens the belief that the
San Diego road is to become a part of
the great system now planning a coast
The boom at San Diego resulting
from the belief that the rosd will be
built is steadily growing. Values are
increasing rapidly and the citizens of
the town already picture themselves
residents of the metropolis of the coast.
Superintendent Hibbard Heard Him
self Freely Discussed.
They tell this one on Mr. Hibbard,
until recently superintendent of the
Albuquerque-Winslow division, now su
perintendent o the Southern California
division. Two engineers, Jones and
Smith, were busy taking in the yards
at Winslow. Smith knew Mr. Hibbard
well, but Jones didn't. Mr. Hibbard
was strolling through the yards and ap
proached the two men, attracted by the
loud talking of Jones. The latter was
sore on the road and the superintendent
and on the management of things In
general, and was telling in a very ex
pressive way what he thought of the
blankety blank superintendent and his
way of doing things. Smith vainly en
deavored to give Jones a hunch, wink
ed at him violently, and did other
things, but Jones couldn't catch on.
Hibbard meanwhile looked on with a
twinkle in his eye. After the big super
intendent had turned his back and
started away Smith said, "Good Lord,
man, that was Mr. Hibbard standing
behind you." Jones turned pale around
the gills and his jaw dropped as he
looked at the retreating back of the su
perintendent. He would have sold his
job for thirty cents and expected to get
the "can" at once. But he never heard
anything more about the incident.

West Anxious for Low Price Tickets
to St. Louis.
J1. J. Byrne, general passenger agent
for the Santa Fe with headquarters in
Los Angeles, passed through this city
on last night's Overland, says the San
Bernardino Sun, bound for St. Louis,
where he will attend the passenger
meeting of the Transcontinental Pas
senger association. The principal busi
ness to come before the meeting this
year is said to be the matter of rates
to the St. Louis exposition.
Railroad men in the west are making
a strong demand that a round trip rate
of at least J50 be made, but such action
is considered doubtful. Fifty-dollar
round trip rates are frequently made
from the east to the coast, but seldom
is such a cut made on this side. The
consensus is that the rate will be $57.
The members of the Transcontinental
association will convene next Mondav,
and the result is awaited with interest.
Packages for TJse in Emergency Are
Being Distributed.
Enid, Ok., J.in. 27. A sample of the
"first aid" packages to be issued by the
"Frisco" system was received here yes
terday. They will be distributed over
the entire system, in stations, water
tanks, section houses, switch shanties
and trains, so that in case of accident
remedies will be at hand. The package
contains one tourniquet a hoselike

The use .of the packages will be
taught the employes. The men will be
given circulars, showing how to use the
tourniquet, the method of putting on
a bandage and how to know the char
acter of bandage to use in different
kinds of injuries. It will all be supple
mented with a note of instruction to
use the whisky sparingly. The instruc

Fifty Belgian Locomotives Abandoned
by French at Panama CanaL
A correspondent of the Houston Post
writing from Panama, tells of the ras
cality of the French company which
tried to dig a canal through, the isth
mus. He says:
"In crossing the railroad fill, from
Colon to the mainland, one comes
quickly to one of the most glaring of
all the available proofs of French ras
cality. Lying in the mud, soft silt and
swamps, are fifty Belgian locomotives,
built especially to the ' order of the
Panama Canal company, and in their
day as perfect pieces of machinery as
Europe had ever produced. From some
of these locomotives the partial crating
was never removed, for it was discov
ered after they were delivered here
that 'a.' mistake' had been made in or
dering them. They were all ordered for
a different gauge railroad from that
on the isthmus and were therefore en
tirely useless. But instead of being
sent back to Euroae to be sold where
they might be used, they were dumped
in the mud and there they lie today.
"The crime of those locomotives is
rivaled for downright rascality by an
other which protrudes its proof all over
the isthmus. Of the whole canal work,
twenty-seven miles were, by the nature
of the land, from the very beginning of
the enterprise required to be excavated
from the surface, the other twenty
two miles being under-water dredging.
The French proceeded, however, in
their greed for contract commissions.
with the idea of dredging practically
the entire route. Their scheme was to
excavate from the surface until a ditch
of sufficient deDth to float a dredge
should be secured, then to pump water
into the ditch and turn dredges loose on
the work.
"Dredginjr is vastly more costly .than
surface excavation, yet the French en
tertained this monstrous idea, evidence
of which is found in the high ground
of the interior jungles. There, by the
side of the ditch, sticking through the
tangle of vegetation at short distance,
lie the hulls and machinery of dredges
it was proposed to put together and
launch into the ditch after it should
have been filled. There is not one of
these machines but countless numbers
of them, with hulls, boilers, scoops and
all other aripurtenances strewn pro
miscuously from one end of the isthmus
to the ot.ier.
Santa Fe Has Acquired Large Hold
ings in San Bernardino.
The Santa Fe now owns a strip of land
commencing at I street and running
west along Third street a mile in
length, says the San Bernardino Times
Index. This is the result of the move
made quietly eome time ago to secure
for the company additional acres for
yard and other purposes. The last par
cel of land was bought yesterday and
now every foot of land which F. T. Fer
ris, acting for the company, set out to
buy has been bought and paid for.
it is understood to be the purpose of
the company to extend the yards on the
new land, to store lumber and ties
there, and to make other changes of
another nature when the time comes.
As has been reported it is the inten
tion of the company to increase the size
of the shops but just when this improve
ment will commence is not known, and
though rumor still persists in the story
that the Santa Fe will do the repair
work for the Salt Lake for the next ten
years, nothing authentic can be ob
tained. It is certain that the railroad intends
to expend many thousands of dollars in
the improvement of its property just
bought, and that these improvements
will be of a substantial nature, and add
to the business of the town. The prop
erty newly acquired fronts on Third
street and has a depth of S00 feet ex
tending haif way to Fourth.

He Opens the War for Endorse

New Tork, Jan. 27. Every seat in the
Madison Square concert hall was taken
last night when William Jennings
Bryan began his speech on "Moral Is

women, while the body of the hall was
more than half full of clergymen. There

being escorted to the platform, where
he was greeted with prolonged ap

Civil Service-Commission Bays Postal
Grafters Were Political Appointees.
Washington. Jan. 27. The civil service
commission in its report to the president
for the fiscal year ended June 30 last,
urges legislation retiring superannuated
government employes. It suggests that
congress provide that the further admis
sion of persons into the classified ser
vice shall be based on a condition that
they shall provide against their own su
perannuation or other disability by ade
quate annuity insurance, the premiums
to De deducted trom tneir salaries, ana
that suoerannuation and disability an-
nuties for" those now in the service should
also be provided for as far as possible by
similar deductions from salaries.
The commission notes a continued im
provement in the observance of the civil
Bprvice act and rules and says that few
complaints appear to be well founded.
The report makes the f jllowing refer
ence to the postoffice investigation: "As
a result ot tne investigation into tne con
duct of the postoffice department, a num
ber of officers and employes of that de
partment have been Indicted. An inspec
tion of the commission record shows that
none of those indicted entered the ser
vice through competitive examination.
This should oe gratuying to tne advo
cates of the merit system, who hold that
employps secured through fair, open
competition have a greater degree of In
tegrity as well as efficiency than em
ployes appointed under the patronage
system." ,m
The merit system, wnicn ueKitii "
with 13,924 positions, now covers approx
imately 125,000 positions. The revised rules
adopted last April, the report says, have
given general satisfaction. It is stated
that the conditions of employment in the
Philippines continue to improve with the
result that more applicants for govern
ment places there were examined in the
last five.month3 than in the preceding 12
months. ,
The commission urges a reclassification
of the entire departmental service by
congress. It says the present arrange
ment is merely a salary classification, re
sulting from increased appropriations an
nually to meet the needs of the service
and there should be uniformity of com
pensation of the service for uprk of the
same kind.
