11 RAILROAD NEWS. Frisco Has ExtensiTe Plans to Expend $47,000,000. Will Double Track From St. Louis to Monett. IMPH0VEMENTS 31 ANY. Are Needed to Care for Rapidly Increasing Traffic. Other Items of Interest Railway Teople. to St. Louis, June 29. The manage ment of the Frisco proposes to make extensive improvements on all the lines of the system if the resolution for the creation of a new mortgage and for a new bond issue is approved by the stockholders at the special meet ing, which will be held on August 24. The improvements will principally be In the nature of increased facilities for taking care of rapidly growing traffic. Double-tracking, the construction of passing tracks and the building of necessary short extensions into de veloping districts in the southwest are among the chief improvements con templated. The line from St. Louis to Monett and the line from Kansas City to Springfield will be double-tracked, and similar work will be done on all parts of the system where the trafiic Is exceptionally heavy. Experience has demonstrated that the construction of' passing tracks will result in economy in operation and in expedition in transportation. Investi gation has shown that delay in mov ing freight on a few sections of the line where the traffic has become im mense has been very expensive, and that passing track could be built and aintained at profit. Besides, tne ervice would be bettered. r or tnis eason the management desires to ln- crease the facalities at all points. Considerable money will be devoted to the enlargement and Improvement of terminal facilities, not only at the Important centers, like St. Louis and Kansas City, but also at the smaller. growing centers. At nearly every progressing city and town in every state of the southwest the terminal facilities will be increased. If the bond proposition is approved the company will be able to secure J10.00.000 by the end of this year. This money, according to the official explanation, will be used for "this year's capital expenditures and for fu ture additions, improvements and bet terments." Of the total Issue of $115,000,000, only the $10,000,000 will be issued im mediately. The balance of $105,000, 000, will be reserved for various pur poses. For taking up outstanding bonds and notes. $62,816,000 of bonds will be reserved: $5,000,000 will be reserved for issuance in aid of the foregoing refunding operations; $5,- 000. 000 will be reserved to take equip ment trust notes which may be issued after the new mortgage is created; $27,184,000 will be issued, after June 1. 1909. for future improvements, at the rate of $2,500,000 or $3,000,000 per year, and $5,000,000 may be Issued after June 1, 1909. at the rate of $1,000,000 or less per year, for the construction or acquisition of new lines or branches. The Frisco will have $10,000,000 for Improvements during the next two years; $2,500,000 per year in 1909. 1910 and 1911. and $3,000,000 per year after 1911. a total of $42,184.0d0. In addition, there will be a total of $5, 000.000 for new equipment. This arrangement is, although for a large amount of money for improve ments, believed to be very moderate, considering the size of the system. But it will be satisfactory, in the Judgment of the officers, and should greatly bet ter the service. The company could make a larger issue and still be con servative. An impression has prevailed that a considerable portion of the $10,000 000 would be used for reducing grades and curves. The management main tains, however. that it will render more beneficial public service by in creasing the trackage and terminal facilities and adding to its equipment. The southwest is developing so rapidly and so generally that the rail roads are hardly able to keep their facilities up to the traffic require ments. Occupied districts are growing and new districts are opening up steadily. The town of Kieffer. south of Sa riulpa. is mentioned as an example of the new demands upon the railroads. A year ago this tewn had scarcely any traffic, where as in one month this year the receipts there aggregated $127,000. The Frisco has had a particularly prosperous year. For the fiscal year ending on June 30 it will show a snr pus of about $4,000,000. or neary $2. 800.000 more than last year. The re port will show a great increase in the gross earnings.

A railroad employe standing inside this booth speaks the trains into a mouth piece resembling somewhat a telephone mouthpiece and the words are carried to the seven brass horns by the wires. But the original sounds are magnined when they issue from the mouth of the horns. Thus far. aside from a certain harshness of tone, the train announcements seem quite intelligible to passengers. GEORGIA CENTRAL'S FATE. Will Soon lass to the Control of Rock Island Interests. New York, June 29. The control of the Central of Georgia railroad, which was purchased on Wednesday by Oakleigh Thorne and Marsden J. Perry, will eventually pass to the Rock Island-Frisco Interest, if predictions made In railroad circles prove well founded. It was Baid that Messrs. Thorne and Perry purchased the Cen tral of Georgia with an understanding between themselves and the Rock Is land interests that formal control of the road should pass to the St. Louis & San Francisco after the expiration of the two years during which the rresent holders of the road have agreed to keep It as an independent line. It was pointed out that close rela tions have existed between Mr. Thorne and B. F. Yoakum, who is the guiding spirit in the affairs of the Rock Is land-Frisco systems. Mr. Yoakum is a director in the Trust company of America, of which Mr. Thorne is president, and In other ways Mr. Thorne and Mr. Yoakum have co operated in business undertakings. ihe St. Louis & San Francisco now has a line into Birmingham, Ala., and at that point it connects directly with the Central of Georgia, whose lines run from Birmingham, from Mont gomery and from Chattanooga to the coast at Savannah. In addition to obtaining this outlet to the Atlantic seaboard the Frisco, in acquiring the Central of Georgia, would come Into control of a large amount of traffic originating in the territory served by the Central of Georgia. TWO KAXSAS CITY DEPOTS. Railroads to Be OiTerel an Alterna tive Proposition. Kansas City, Kan.. June 29. A un ion passenger station to cost at least $100,000. Two passenger stations, each to cost $50,000, if the union station can not bts built. The request of the Mercantile club for a new union station in this city which is to be filed with the state board of railway commissioners next week, will embody both the foregoing propositions. There is some doubt if all the rail roads can be brought together in one depot owing to the manner in which they enter the city. If the roads use this as an argument against a union passenger station the state board will be asked to compel them to establish two depots; a "north" one to be near the foot of Minnesota avenue for the use of the lines that enter that part of the city and a "south" depot near Armstrong for the use of the lines entering by the Kaw valley. The board is to be asked to make every effort to have a union passenger station Duilt near the present Arm strong depot of the Union Pacific, This is thought to be the location fav ored by most of the roads and it is nearest to the center of population o the city. If the union station project cannot De put through the second pro position is to be taken up. IX) It WESTERN KANSAS LINE. Garden City, Gulf & Northern May Ee Extended. Garden City, Kan., June 29. G. L. Miller, secretary of the Garden City Gulf & Northern railway, announced today that arrangements were being made lor building a line north of Gar den City through the Shallow Wate valley of Finney county, through Scott county and on north to St. Francis. The county commissioners of Scott county have called an election for July 23 to vote bonds for the line and the indi cations are that the bonds will carry Bonds have already been voted for the line in Finney county. Secretary Miller says that the United States Sugar and Land company, own ers of the Garden City sugar factory. will finance the road and that it will be built as soon as the line of the Ne braska, Kansas & Southern northeast of Garden City is completed. Work on the latter line la progressing satisfac torily. SITE FOR A FREIGHT DEPOT. Missouri Pacific Will Build One in Kansas City. Kansas City. Kan.. June 29. The Missouri Pacific railway is to build freight depot at the foot of Minnesota avenue. This depot is to be used by the Missouri Pacific, Kansas City Northwestern and Chicago Great Western roads. George Kanavel, chairman of the state board of railway commissioners informed W. A. Simpson, vice chair man of the depot committee of the Mercantile club yesterday, that the railroad had notified the board that it had decided to erect a union freight station for these roads at the site mentioned. The Chicago, Rock Isl and & Pacific and Union Pacific rail ways, Mr. Kanavel said, had not se lected a site for their depots. BIG DAMAGE SUITS FILED.

Reports that Harriman's activities In the railroad and financial world are to be curtailed seriously keep cropping up In Wall street In spite of denials. Today It was saia Harriman soon would take an ex tended European trip and before start ing would retire as president of the Union and Southern Pacific railroads and from the 50 directorates to which he belongs. At the time of the March stock mar ket panic it was declared positively that Morgan and the Rockefellers had decid ed to eliminate Harrlmar; from the rail road world, but since that time Harri- man has been more dominant than ever in the affairs of his railroads and has been re-elected president of the Southern Pacific. The only direction in which his power bs been lessened has been his elimination from the Chicago & Alton railroad. When it was learned a few weeks ago that the federal ad ministration had decided not to prose cute Harriman. Wall street believed the piesident had reached his decision because he had been informed by high financial powers that Harriman soon would cease to be a leader In railroad affairs. Today's . report was that Harriman would retire as president of the Union and Southern Pacific, but would be made coal; man of the boards of both roads. OVERCHARGE IS FOUND. Not Quite Three Hundred Yards Pavement Short. of Measurements of the paving on Jef ferson street between ' Sixth and Kighth avenue to Tenth avenue, show Eighth evenue to Tenth avenue, show that 28S square yards of paving does not exist which It is stated that the city paid for. One hundred and thirty-seven square yards is on Jefferson street and ono hundred and fifty-one on Lane street. W. A. Harshbarger, who is mak ing the measurements for the city completed his work on Western ave nue this noon. Four streets have now been checked over. Clay street from Tenth avenue to Central park, was checked over the first thing and nothing was discovered here to Indicate that an excess yard age had been paid for and unac counted. Notations In the field book of the engineering department attempt to ex plain the excess yardage on Jefferson street by crediting 185.44 square yards to repairing Western avenue and the relaying of brick on Thirteenth and Clay streets where the pavement was damaged, it Is said, while being laid by a sewer excavating machine. It Is claimed that the excess yard age was allowed on Jefferson street because the repair work was done after the estimates had been allowed on the two streets repaired and in or der to make payment it was Included In the Jefferson street estimate. An explanation to account for some of the excess yardage on Lane is given to cover 65.3 yards. The Investigation is only begun and considerable paving still remains to be measured. HEIRLOOMS GONE.

FAILEDTO MAKE POINT RiTal Tillage Grew While Com pany Town ' Died. Hereafter to Be Known as Hol coinb, "Whistling Station Garden City, June 29. In the future there will be no station known as Sher lock in the western part of the state on the Santa Fe where since the road has been in existence there has been such a townsite. The new time card designates the location as Holcomb in honor of one of the foremost residents of that part of the state. Mr. Holcomb, for whom the etation is renamed came to western Kansas a dozen or 15 years ago, after having dropped a fair elzed fortune in the cat tle commission business in Kansas Clrv. Though well past the meridian of life he began anew and by his efforts has amassed another comfortable fortune along with the esteem of his fellow townsmen. When western land was a dr-jsr on ine market Mr. Holcomo purchased a large tract near the townsite of Sher lock and spent many thousands of dollars in experimenting with Irrigation and It was largely through his efforts that the attention of the government was called to the wonderful possiblli ties of western Kansas. As a result congress appropriated large sums of money which are to be expended in Finney and the surrounding counties in the interest of irrigation and in an ef fort to reclaim the arid portion. The Santa Fe evidently appreciates ine man for whom they have changed the name of Sherlock to Holcomb after having used the former name In all of their printed matter for more than a quarter of a century. The change is a compliment to Mr. Holcomb but many of the old timers will note the passing of the name with a tinge of sorrow, tor tnere is something more than sentiment attached to the mem ory of the days when the country was new and the Santa Fe a Jerk water line without through trains. This was back in the later seventies when there were few signs of civiliza tion and the population of that section of the country wag confined to scatter ing bands of Indians and buffalo and wild horse hunters. The Santa Fe road laid out a townsite and called it Sher lock and six miles east of that loca tion another town was laid out by a body of men to which Buffalo Jones, Fred Finnup, John A. Stevens. Will lam and James Fulton and a handful of others belonged. This town was to be called after the Fulton brothers, Fultonville, but even then there were jealousies and it was christened Garden City as a compro mise at the suggestion of one of the body of settlers who wisely foresaw the future in store for that section of the fertile bottom lands of the Arkansas. Then began the battle for. supremacy between the Santa Fe road and the lit tle band of frontiersmen who had loca ted at Garden City and It was a battle where the resources of the Santa Fe were pitted against the courage and honesty of purpose of the settlers. The Santa Fe owned the townsite of Sher lock as well as much of the land ad jacent which promised to become val uable with the settlement of the coun try.. The townsite of Garden City was owned by one of the Fulton brothers who is yet a resident of that thriving little city and the land adjacent was owned by other members of the com pany, i Tne santa re rerusea ror years to erect a depot on the townsite, and if a letter arrived for one of the group of men located there, it was necessary to make a trip to Sherlock to get it. None of the trains stopped at Garden City and all supplies were hauled through to Sherlock and brought back by the wagon trail. For years this condition prevailed and the little band of settlers kept soul and body together on the townsite of Garden City by the sale of buffalo hides and the capture of wild horses which were plentiful in that section of the state. Only those who had visited western Kansas knew of Garden City, for the Santa Fe never allowed a men tion of the name to be made where it was possible to avoid it. Despite the efforts of the road Gar den City grew, and all that there was at any time to mark the railroad townsite of Sherlock was the little red depot and the sign board which an nounced to passengers on the trains the names of the place. The railroad was relentless and not for years after Garden City had eclipsed Sherlock many times, did the road condescend to admit that such a place was on their line. Finally they were forced to build a little shack in lieu of a depot and stop one of their trains at the station, though for many years thev kept up the fight from force of habit. With a change in the management of the road came a charfge in the at titude of the Santa Fe towards the town of Garden City and a larger I deDot was built-for the convenience of the emigrants who poured into what was then Sequoyan county. liaraen City continued to grow until at one time it boastd of two dail- newspa pers with Associated Press dispatches, a street car system, waterworks and a sewerage system ample to care for the nedes of a city og double Its size. Then came the fine-residences, com modious school houses." four and five storv business buildings, and then the boom broke and Garden City was for years a wreck of its former great ness and fortunes evaporated as snow under a noonday sun. Then it was that Jones. Fulton. Stevens and half a score of others lost the accumula tion of years; one alone of the early settlers, Fred Finnup. a thrifty Ger man, maintaining his holdings, and he COFFEE Impoverishes the B'ood. POSTUM Makes RED Blood. YOUR DOCTOR KNOWS. There a Reason" s2 Is today one of the -wealthiest men In the western section of the state. Garden City is now enjoying another boom to which the first was a cipher !n comparison and now it is a'Santa Fe town with the road back of it all the time whilo Sherlock under its new name is only a whistling station. A million dollar sugar beet factory fur nishes employment to hundreds of men and adds thousands of dollars to the Incomes of the merchants each year, but in the memories of the old citizens there is a recollection of the time when they were pitted against the great railroad corporation and the changing of the name of Sherlock to Holcomb marks the close of the struggle.- NOT YET SAYS "FITZ." Lieutenant Governor Won't Announce Candidacy for Governor." W. J. Fitzgerald, lieutenant governor of Kansas, and one of the men whose name has ben most frequently mention ed as a possible candidate for governor, is in Topeka today on his way to Kan sas City. When asked whether cr not he would consent to be a candidate for governor, Mr. Fitzgerald said amiably: "I have been devoting my attention to driving a span of mules hitched to a mowing machine, and am not a candi date for governor " and then Mr. Fitz gerald added the word "yet." "But soon " was suggested. "No. I think not," replied the Dodge City man. "The fact is, I don't care to discuss that matter. There is time for many things to happen between now and election. It Is likely that before that time everybody may agree upon some candidate for governor, and there won't be any race at all. I like this job of lieutenant governor, and ask nothing better than to be re-elected . to that office. I am not ambitious politically. If you should come down to my farm, and get a sample of Ideal life In the country, you wouldn't be surprised that I am willing to stay out of politics." "What do you think about the prospect for a primary next year?" was asked. "I haven't studied the existing laws sufficiently to know whether a primary can be properly safeguarded with the laws which we now have. I know there seems to be a strong sentiment In favor of a primary." Concerning crop conditions In his county. Mr. Fitzgerald said: "We will begin cutting our wheat Monday. There are plenty of men and we will have a fair crop." r BGOKS TOO HEAVY. Coburn's Reports Can't Be Mailed to Foreign Country. Secretary F. D. Coburn has struck an unexpected snag In mailing out copies of his biennial report to Amer ican consuls and others in foreign lands. The book weighs over 4 pounds, and can't be transported in tho foreign mails. Forty copies of the book, sent to San Francisco for transportation to foreign countries, were held up at the San Francisco postofnee, and Mr. Coburn was notified to send 40 cents postage for the return of each book, or the books would be destroyed. Mr. Coburn took the matter up with the postmaster general, in an effort to secure the transportation of the books to their destination, but failed to secure favor able action. The books will have to be returned to Tcpeka, and no copies can be sent to foreign countries by mail. Whatever ccpies of the biennial are sent out of the state will have to be sent by express, and this will cost several dollars per copy. It will be necessary for foreigners to pay this expense. Mr. Coburn feels that the state will lose a good deal by its inability to place the books in foreign countries, where thev are used for reference, and are the means of bringing settlers to Kansas. As an example of the demand for the Coburn reports in foreign coun tries, it might be mentioned that this morning Mr. Coburn received a re quest for a couple of copies of the "Corn book" from the' American con sul in the Leeward islands, which are situated southeast of Porto Rico, and enclose the Caribbean sea. HUGHES CAN'T SIGN. Paving Contracts Must Have Signature . of Mayor Green. No paving contracts can be signed by Mayor Pro Tern Hughes. In fact no contracts of any nature can be signed by the acting mayor who took hold of affairs today following the de parture of Mayor Green at 3 o'clock this afternoon for the east. The dust that has been kicked up over the paving will settle down now for all of the paving matters with the exception of awarding the bids for some of the tag ends will have to wait until the return of Mayor Green. ten days from now. This means that the question of paving tne tnree nortn blocks of Central avenue will lie dor mant for that period. One of the first things that the new mayor will do is to secure moro pic tures for the council chamber. He innouncsd this intention today. The city has the beginnings of a picture gallery in several of the offices at the city hall and to Mayor Pro Tern Hughes belongs the credit -for secur ing what we have. All or tne steei en gravings in the office of mayor were hung there when the Sixth ward man wag mayor several years back. S. S. SMITH DENIES REPORT.
