Santa Fe General Office Build
ing Too Small.
Outside Rooms Rented to Ac
commodate Overflow.
Freight Auditor's Office the
Most Congested of Any.
A Brand New Building May : Be
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
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.

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.

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.
