Hill, for the Burlington and the Northern Pacific, declares it is simply another step in the long protracted contest be tween Harriman and Hill for suprem acy in the traffic control of the west. Continuing the article says: "By securing the 2,250 miles of the Colorado & Southern system. Mr. Hill has not only swelled the total of the lines controlled by him to nearly twenty-four thousand miles but by se curing the long desired outlet to the gulf of Mexico and completing his route from the far northwest to Gal veston he has' invaded his rival's terri tory just as Harriman has persistently strengthen his own position by push ing out new lines into the northwest, west. "The Colorado & Southern connects with the Burlington at Cheyenne, Wyo., and at Denver, Col., and in ordei to secure a shorter and more direct route from Denver to the northwest it would onlv be necessary to build the short connecting lines already surveyed by the Burlington from Lyons to Chey enne. Wyo., and from Orin Junction to Gillette or Sheridan, Wyo., to a con nection with the Burlington's line to Billings, Mont., where it joins the Northern Pacific. "It has been generally understood that one of Mr. Hill's ambitions has been to secure a new route from Seat tle, Portland, and other cities of the northwest to the Gulf of Mexico, and it has been repeatedly rumored that he had been figuring on the Missouri, Kansas & Texas which connects with the Burlington at Hannibal, Mo. The Colorado & Southern, however, woum serve as a much more direct route to the northwest and would prove a logi cal outlet for the cotton of the south to the Great Northern's ocean lines from Pueet Sound as well as from the nortn- w?st to the gulf ports. The Tribune says it is expected that further details will be arranged at tne meeting of the Burlington directorate in New York today and at the Colorado & Southern board meeting on Tuesday. The purchase price is said to be about eighteen million dollars. SANTA FE7S BRIDGE AT ALVA. Salt Fork River Is Spanned by Per manent Structure. Aha. Okla.. Dec. 2 2.--The Pioneer states that the last girder in the new bridge across Salt Fork has been low ered into place and connected up one of "the 'very bear hridges-tali the, southwest. The work of putting down j ties preparatory to laying the track, has begun, and In a very short time the heavy steel on the new grade will be in and trains running. The Santa Fe company is to he con gratulated on a great piece of work in the construction of their new line, which is almost on grade. Tou can not imagine the vast amount of work done, or the cost over it and figure on the largo fill across the low-land and the deep . cut through hills and highland?. mv. nr, ttio Salt Fork bridge has been under headway for more than a year, steam holsters were used, and the cement piers over which the track passes are resting on the solid ground, which means that the com pany went many feet through sand and water in the river bed to find such a foundation; this bridge is only a sample of the excellent work all along the entire line. t Three car loads of bricks are now on the side track for the fine new passenger depot, which will be built fronting Seventh street, Just northwest of the present depot, which will be used for freight purposes. The new depot when completed will be, of course, not the largest, but one of the finest on their new line of road. SAIjR IS RATIFIED. Colorado & Southern Xow a Part of the Burlington. New York, Dec. 22. Directors of the Colorado & Southern Railway company today ratified the safe sale of the road to "the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad company. Edwin Hawley, principal stock holder of the Colorado & Southern stated that actual transfer of control would take place today. President Trumbull of the Colorado & South ern says the transaction would be ad vantageous for both roads. He de clared that he looked forward with satisfaction to an early temporary re tirement from active business. Mr. Hawley said that the Bur lington purchased practically all of the common stock of the Colorado & Southern railroad which he and his associates had held. It was understood that Mr. Hawley continues to hold Colorado & South ern first and second preferred stock and that President Trumbull retains his interest in that property. XEW ROAD FOR LEBANON. ton & Quincy for violations of the safety appliance law returned a ver dict in favor of the . railroad. In spectors charged that the . Burlington hauled two cars from the Denver & Rio Grande transfer tracks to the yards of the Burlington at Nineteenth street with defective couplers. The road put up the defense that the cars were not in interstate commerce in the movement from one vnrrt to an other, and the Jury took that view of the case. The road claimed that the inspectors ought to notify the rail roads when they find defective equip ment. Suits of a similar nature against the Colorado & Southern will be taken up Monday. children.

Augustus Thomas Say Write: ' a 'Play on Socialism. CURRY WANTS STATEHOOD. New Mexican Governor Vant9 "To Be Treated Lilte Men." Washington, Dec. 22. "We have a wide awake, progressive industrious and intelligent population and we want to be treated like men." In those words . Governor George New York, Dec. 22. Here is encour agement for young and aspiring play wrights. Augustus Thomas in .an ad dress last night before the American Dramatic club of which he has been president since the death of Bronson Howard, had this to say of plays and playwrights: "No old playwright can tell a young one how to build a play. There are no rules to the game and there is not a single accepted maxim that you can't break and make money. The greatest of them all misled more peo ple than anybody ever did when he said that playwrighting " was holding the mirror up to nature. Shakespeare nev er did that in his life." As to the future Mr. Thomas said: . "Great plays remain to be written about the American Jew and about so cialism. I men the American Jew with his fine qualities as we know them. I don't mean the dull kind of socialism that we hear from platforms and in speeches, but a sort of celestial social ism that we. sometimes read about." Eugene Presby, William Gillette and Victor Herbert were among the others who sjpoke. ONE CAUSE FOR DIVORCES.

There are plenty of railroad rumors floating about over the proposed extension of the Union Pacific stub from Beloit to Kearney, Neb., which crosses the C. R. I. & P. railway at this point. That this new line would be a great feeder to the TTnion Pacific main trunk lines almost across the continent, a feeder from the richest alfalfa and corn belt of Kansas, is admitted by all. she calls the "simple life." and as serts that young women will keep on going down to physical and moral destruction so long as wealthy women publicly display their riches. Inmates of prisons will be the spec ial objects of her peculiar kind of charity, though she by no means in tends to overlook the poverty stricken or distressed. She says she still possesses 15,000 worth of Jewelry, and intends to dispose of it for art's sake. She visited the young women in Harrison street police station annex yesterday and gave them a talk which she hopes will help toward convert ing them in . the Bahai religion, which she herself embraced three years ago. "The methods of the modern church are wrong." she said last night. "Why should the poor give up their hard earned nickels to the preachers and priests? Why should not these shift for themselves like other strong men? They should not be recognized as head or leaders. There is only one head, and that is the manifestation of God. "The proper thing for us to do is to live upright lives. I am a servant to the threshold of the merciful one. Don't glory in your . country, but glory in loving all humanity. There is no division of creed or color, or belief in my religion, and I believe in the principles of uniting all man hood into one great family under the banner of one God. "I love all women. Why shouldn't I? We are all sisters. I was brought up in luxury, was formerly maid of honor to the empress of Austria, and once believed that J could not get along without my horses and car riages and the rarest of -wines, but I have sacrificed it all. l am down in the gutter trying to uplift un fortunate beings. "I was born in Hungary of royal lineage, and was married to Count Sandor Bethlen, who owned vast es tates. He died in 1892 and the fol lowing year I came to Chicago to visit the World s Columbian exposition Inside of twelve months in America I squandered. $36,000, but today I value money only for the good it will do. Who ever takes up my religion is expected to do good according to his capacity. "Should I go out and find any per sons suffering from illness or disease I will nurse them, and if I find dirt and filth about the house I will get down on my knees ana scrub it away. So will I wash the sick or unclean Curry, of New Mexico, asks statehood for his territory in his annual report to the secretary of the interior made public today. " - Governor Curry says New Mexico's credit is excellent that no strikes mar the record of its industries; the laws enacted by its legislature are good; gambling is prohibited and the "Sun day closing" enforced. So he con cludes. New Mexico deserves state hood. The governor states that the population of the territory is over 450,000, and that there is over $300 000.000 worth of property in New Mexico, in addition to its coal, timbeV and fertile lands. He asks that the Carey land act be extended to the ter ritory and the bill now before con gress providing for a seventh judicial district for New Mexico be enacted in to law.

Cedar Rapids, ' la., Dec. 22.

"Mna catch ing" by frivolous women was deplored here greatly in a sermon . by Rabbi Joseph Krauskopf at Keneseth Israel temole. This, he declared. was re sponsible for a good portion of Ameri can divorces. The rabbi said: "From the day the daughter enters young womanhood the sole thought of many homes is man catching, io arti fice is shunned that shall enable the gorgeously decked out huntress quick est to entrap her victim. "There is probably no thought which occupies a young society woman more than that of being married; there Is probably no thought which occupies her less than that of being happy when married, or making a husband happy." CHICAGO'S IDEA OF A JOKE. Autos Rush to Hotel to Convince New Yorker Business Is Brisk. Chicago. Dec. 22. A practical joke played upon a young woman guest at the Auditorium Annex nearly caused a riot of chauffeurs at the hotel. The trouble began when the young woman was told by the clerk over the house telephone: "Your car is ready." She replied that she had ordered no car. However, in quick succession. five more calls were turned in. Hotel detectives finally explained to the waiting chauffeurs that they were not wanted. The young woman explained that re cently she expressed the opinion that there was less automo ninng in Chi cago than in New York. Portland. Oregon.
