Outside Rooms Rented to Ac commodate Overflow. USING JIORE CLERKS. Freight Auditor's Office the Most Congested of Any. A Brand New Building May : Be Erected. It !s not known that any plans are contemplated for the near future, but It Is a certainty that one of the grow ing needs of the Santa Fe at this point, is a larger general office build ing or at least some greatly Increased quarters. Two years ago an addition was made In the general office building here, which cost $40,000, and which alleviated the congestion for a short time. IThls is the addition to the building on the east. - Since this addition was built and put into use, the different departments have grown, and in some instances al most doubled, so that now there are but few of the departments which have ample room for their work. The new rulings of the Interstate Commerce commission have added to the clerical force of the roads. The commission has also made new rules regarding the keeping of records and documents. Papers of this kind, which were formerly kept for a limited period of five years or so, are now required to b& filed Indefinitely and this requires room, much more room, than the general public realizes. Already the force of the different departments has increased in number to such an extent that office rooms in the neighborhood of the general of fice building hav? been engaged. This of course entails additional expenses of rents and the like, that would he needless should the building be en larged or another one built. The freight auditing Is at present the most congested department. The clerical force occupies all the top floor of the general office building, and in addition fifty-four clerks are occupying quarters in the old Reed residence, located across the alley in the rear of the general office build ing. The Santa Fe purchased this property a few months ago. The ticket auditors have a force of about twenty men working in the new brick building adjoining the Copeland hotel on the south. This force has been nearly doubled within the past two years. The tie and. timber department which is assuming importance be cause of the scarcity of timber, oc cupies a suite of rooms In the Smith building at the northwest - corner of Ninth and Kansas avenue. The time card room, w-here all the train sched ules are worked out and which is an important department is also located in the building south of the Cope land. Other departments which do not use overflow office room are badly in need of increased quarters. The pas senger department Is crowded to, Its capacity, while the freight depart ment hasn't any room to spare. - Should the Santa Fe. decide In the near future to increase - tbe office' room, it is likely that an entirely new building would be erected. When the Reed property was acquired, it was then understood that the road In tended at some future1 date to build a new structure on the site, and this would be the probable course. The present general office building " is about complete from an architectural standpoint, and . hence, no-" further additions areiexpected, although there is plenty of- building room left on these lots.

( FIGHT IS WON.- Battle Against Tuberculosis Believed lo Ho Over. Philadelphia, Jan. 6. What is con sidered by medical men to be the most important discovery in the war against tuberculosis since the finding of., the tuberculosis bacillus by Koch, is con tained in an announcement by Dr. Randle C. Rosehbergh of . the chair of bacteriology at Jefferson Medical col lege. Dr. Rosenbergh declares that the tuberculosis germ can be located in the blood before it reaches the lungs and that in view of this can be de stroyed by very simple treatment. By use of anti-toxin, he thinks, the dis ease can bo soon stamped out. A paper on Dr. Rosenbergh's re searches is soon to appear in a med ical journal, but the results he says he has obtained were discussed before the faculty of Jefferson college. Inl view of professional ethics, however, Everybody reads the State Journal. the doctor declined to talk about his researches outside medical circles If the theory that the tuberculosis germs hrst make their appearance in he blood of the patient is correct. It s believed that the injection of anti toxin or virus would prevent them from reaching the lungs, practically rendering the patient immune. ,v.th,s ,s a" thHt iR hoped for it."

New Jersey Inaugurates System of Education for Convicts. Trenton. N. J., Jan. 6.-With almost every convict enrolled as a student, night school was opened in state's prison here last night with indications that It will be a success. Instruction for prisoners has been advocated by former Governor E. C, Stokes of New Jersey for some time past, who holds the belief that great good can be done by giving. the men a means of educa tion during their Incarceration It Is hoped not only to give practical In struction, but to arouse ambition and perhaps hav an important bearing on the future life of the men when they go forth into the world again. An interesting feature of the nlan la that several of the better educated convicts are acting as tutors-for their lenows. t ,1
