RAILR0AD NEWS. Bock Island General Offices in Topeka Are in Order, Satisfaction Expressed Over New Location of Work. WILL HAVE TO BUILD. Present Building Capacity Is Not large Enough. Other Items of General Inter est in Traffic World. Th first two weeks of ODeratlon un der the new organization of the traffic conditions and officials of the Rock Island lines has ended and tne omcers of the road are pleased with tne suc cess nf thft venture. The officers at the head of the newly created second district with headquar ters in Topeka agree that every thing has been running smoothly in the time since the change. They predict that the reorganization will be permanent with the road and will carry on the entire business of the system for many years. ... ... It Is a new scheme this dividing the lines of the road up Into three districts and giving each a general headquarters and is the key to the operating secret in the modern rail roading or today, ine unw in ail hiir railwav systems like the Rock Island when the entire line is operated from the home omce 01 president and his staff. Not that the president has been his power far from that but he has given himself more personal power by supervising his road with more lieutenants who are able to get at the grass roois ui Everyone knows the old theory of railroding. A president, a iew vii;o ni-siriTit a c-eneral manager, a gen eral passenger agent, a general freight agent, etc. ine president uau Brilliant array or omciais urounu uuu imiiallv at the terminus of the lines and with the exception of one or two "inspection tours-' every year tne entire railroad system was run by the aid of a typewriter ana a sxenog ratiher. Now ft Is different at least on the Rock Island, the Santa Fe and other up to date roads. Now the system is divided Into districts and each district is given a general manager, a general passenger agent, a general superin tendent, n suDerlntendent of motive power, an engineer maintenance of way, a general ireignt agent, geucrai attorney, claim agent, etc. v.arTn eeneral manager has supreme sway over the operating department of his district. He is the head of a railroad of his own and only to the executive officers is he held responsi ble for what goes on in his district. Take A. E. Sweet, general manager of the Rock Island in Topeka, or C. W. Kouns, general manager of the Santa Fe in Topeka. for instance. If you want to go to the head of the Santa Fe general offices in Topeka you wade through four or five thick carpets and your card is given reverently to Mr. Kouns. In the Rock Island general offices it is the sa'me and you are able to get at the real head of the work you can find the responsible party without writing a letter to Chi cago and having It answered by some clerk. It is really on the commission form of government theory. Each man is directly responsible for the work of his department and if anything goes wrong it takes but a short time to trace the cause. The only difference between the railroad work and the commission form of government is that one comes after years of hard la bor and practical experience and the other is picked from the tree after weeks of clever political dealings. The Rock Island a road among the leaders of the west with 8,500 miles of track is divided into three districts. The second district including all of the rich territory of the central west cen ters in Topeka and since the first of February the officers at the head of this district hav been In the office building here. Rushing Work on Offices. It will be a week before the remodel ing of the building is completed but all of the more important changes in the Interior have been made. "Visitors to the offices now will find practically a new inside appearance the arrange ment of the rooms has been changed, all of the walls have been i-etinted and painted, the floors in the big offices have been relaid and varnished, parti- IHEUMJfflSR miEKBHEY5 &THIH BLOOD Not only 13 the blood the great nourishing source of our systems, but equally as important is its work of J-emovinr the waste of oxodized, tis-. sues which have been consumed in force and bodily heat. This waste is filtered out through the kidneys. When, however, the kidneys become weak and unable to perform their regular duties, the waste is allowed to remain in the circulation, - soon forming uric acid which destroys the greater portion of nourishing elements of the blood and leave it weak and acrid. This imperfect blood deposits Into the different muscles and joints the uratic impurity with , which it is contaminated. Then the pains and aches of Rheumatism commence. The gritty formation which- uric acid causes collects in the joints and pro duces the aches and stiffness which always accompany the disease. Like wise the muscles are coated and lose their elasticity, while the continual irritation to the nerves produces swell ing and inflammation of the flesh. t. t s. cures Rheumatism in the only way it is possible to over come the disease; it cleanses the blood of all uric acid poison and strengthens the kidneys so they are enabled to properly filter out the waste.

A person used to find very few "car pets" in the Rock Island offices here. Now a visitor can walk through many suites of offices with bis feet sinking down deep In Brussels of the best pat ternthat Is, you can do this If the descriptions given by the office boy to the outer office clerk, by the clerk to the general clerk, by the general cler to the assistant chief clerk, by the as sistant to the chief clerk and by the chief clerk to the "boss," is satisfac tory. A. E. Sweet, general manager, has one of the prettiest and best furnishel offices in the building. It occupies the tower extension on the second floor. giving him a north and south view up and down Kansas avenue. Mr. Sweet has his desk set back in this tower. The furnishings are all in mahogany and the carpet feels at least 3 inches thick. Next to him on the north is the office of George Hetherington, chief clerk to the general manager. Mr. Hetherington has walnut furnish ings and like the general manager has a long row of "buttons" on his desk. It is the common rule that the im portance of an official can be judged by the number of "buttons" he has on his desk. Chief Clerk Hetherington also has a carpet that gives a "pussy foot" effect to an Intruder. James A. Stewart, general passenger agent, is situated on the third floor with his well organized force. Like wise S. W. Mullinix, superintendent of motive power. J. B. Smalley. general superintendent, is on the second floor adjoining the offices of the general manager. In a short time the Rock Island will have to build an addition to the pres ent building which i3 used for the gen eral offices. Every office is crowded and some of the offices are moved to the rear of a nearby hotel. With the growth of the road's business, the nat ural working order of the second dis trict and the addition of new clerks to different departments something will have to be done to accommodate them. It is a question in the minds of the of ficials whether to build out the two wings of tho building on the north or to make it higher. SUPPLY MEN ARE WORRIED. Hand-to-Mouth Policy of Railroads Due to Uncertain Rate Conditions. New York, Feb. 11. It appears to bo generally conceded that it is a long time since men engaged in the manu facture of railway supplies have been Obliged, as they are at this time, to hunt for business and pursue possible contracts that not infrequently prove regular will o' wisps. The reason, of course, is obvious to all who under stand the situation, and for months have been painfully familiar with the hand-to-mouth policy governing the buying of the railroads. It has been frankly stated by the latter that in the tremendous and protracted effort made to get advance freight-rates, unless assured of the greater revenue that higher rates would give, they can not afford to go Into the market and en gage in liberal buying. ' It has been charged, however, that the action of the roads which has been so paralyzing to the supply business is the result of a concerted plan or un derstanding at least among some of the lines, and for the sole purpose of making the public believe that without higher rates there can be no prosper ous railway operation, and all other avenues of trade and commerce must share the burden of resultant depres sion. The supply men are hoping for early betterment of the present situation. It is at this season of the year they have, been accustomed to receive a plentitude of orders, the flow of which continues until about June. GULF SURVEY IS 005IPLETED. Kansas Bonuses for Road Projected North and South. Guthrie, Ok., Feb. 13. Surveyors for the Winnipeg, Salina & Gulf com pleted the survey, during the past week, from Alva west to Beaver City, nearly 100 miles, routing the road through Buffalo and Gate. Beaver citizens are raising a bonus for the company, as are also the citizens of Alva, who have promised $100,000. Sterling, Kan., has subscribed $10,000, and Sylvia, Turon and Sunningham $5,000 each. The Marine Trust & Se curity company of San Francisco is as sisting in financing the road, of which ti. Jueon Miller of Salina, Kan., is pres ident. The first line is projected to be built south from Omaha through Sa lina to Alva, with a branch west from Alva to the New Mexico coal fields. Announcement was made about one year ago that this survey was being made and that a strong organization was being formed to finance this pro ject. Whether this is a part of the system of which fifty miles has been graded and rails are being laid in North Dakota is not known. WANTS NO MORE TELEPHONES. Statement Regarding Morgan Made in Kansas City by Gleed. Kansas City, Feb. 13. "J. F. Mor gan & Co., are not buying telephone properties. They have no use for any more than they already own." This statement was made last night by C. S. Gleed, president of the Mis souri & Kansas Telephone company while discussing the many reports that have gained publicity in the last week that Mr. Morgan is busy buying up independent telephone companies throughout the country. - Mr. Gleed also said that the state ments sent out from St. Louis last Wednesday claiming the purchase by Mr. Morgan of independent telephone lines in several eastern and western cities were incorrect. Regarding the rumors of a sale or merger of the two telephone lines In Kansas City, Mr. Gleed said that no such deal had been made. . ""It -4s my understanding," , he said, "that a proposition has been made to Mr. Heim, president of the Home Tele phone company, as to terms on which a trade can be made, but it is uncer tain as to whether these terms can be agreed upon. "If one is made at any time in any form the public will know about it promptly, as the Bell people will, un der no circumstances, do anything not pleasing to the public- The Bell company would like to own the Home properties, but very naturally the Home owners place a higher value on their property than the Bell can see in it. "Both companies continually are importuned by the publio to do away with the nuisance of two services and the Bell at least would like to satisfy the demand, but Kansas City rates are unremunerative and the amount of investment to be lost by a merges would be enormous. There are also legal difficulties which perhaps would prevent a deal. But the whole sub ject is receiving most careful consid eration and a purchase or merger may result although the chances in my opinion : are - largely - against it." A TRUEjUCORING Would Give Ball Players Credit for Yalue.' Find Average Batting by Credit Points. OLD SYSTEM FALSE. Fly Hit for Score Shonld Pay Batter. Walk, Sacrifice, Bun, Hit by Pitcher, Worth Same as flit. Guthrie. Ok.. Feb. 13.-r-Edson T. (Ted) Price, one' of the best known baseball players and managers produced by Ok lahoma, comes forward at the present time, when there are so many sug gestions relative to changing the rules, with an entirely new system for figur ing batting averages. After playing independent ball for several years, Price has been playing in the leagues since 1895, leaving the Toledo team in 1902 to manage the Cedar Rapid team of tne xnree-t league. Juater toe man aged the Wheeling team of the Central League several years, the Enid team or the western Association two years, ana last season he managed the -Ke wanee team of the Central Associa tion. In discussing his proposed changes in nguring the players batting aver ages. Price says: "I am trying to introduce a system of averaging the work of a ball play er as a batter that J hope may revo lutionize the old system, by whloh the value of a player baa . always been judged by the number of hits he made in a certain number of times at bat. Before studying the new system think how many games under your own ob servation have been won by the batter by other than a clean base hit. . "My system of counting is as follows Hit, 10; run, 10; sacrifice, 10; base on balls, 10; scoring a man, 10; hit by pitched ball. 10. I "The first on my list is the hit, and none of us underestimate the value of it, but I deny that it is the whole thing. "Second The run. Some may ask: 'What has the run to do with bat ting?' Well, a man must be at bat be fore he can get on bases, and must get on bases . before he can make a run. This will be an incentive for a batter to run everything out at his best speed. "Third The sacrifice. By giving 10 points for the sacrifice an inducement is offered to the player to become ef ficient in this department, and a man can become a scientific batter only through close application to practice in that department. At first I thought of allowing the ' batter onlv 5 points lor a sacrifice, but upon rurther con sideration 10 points seemed to be the proper thing. "Fourth The base on balls. It is a standing fact that a man who gets a base on balls scores more often than with a hit. Why? Well, in the first place, it unsettles the pitcher and, he puts them straight over to the next batter, - and in the second -'see a base on- balls causes a team -to have - less confidence in a pitcher and often causes an explosion. "Fifth Scoring a man is perhaps the most important of all, as it requires a cool player to do the right thing In a pinch. During the past league sea son no less than two of the first four games played were won by fly balls to the outfield. Yet. under the present system, a batter gains nothing by scoring those runs. A ball player (the right kind) often goes up with the determination to try for a long fly merely to score the run. Yet he must suffer for it. Is it just? "The last on the list is hit by a pitched ball. No explanation of that is necessary, as that 10 even more de moralizing to the pitcher and the team behind him than a base on balls. "If the above system were used a standard for good work would soon de velop itself, and at present It seems to me that aoout a total or z&o nounas for each ten games would show splend id work by the batter. Men from high er leagues, who are looking through the minors, would not- jump at , con clusions when they saw that a man had batted only .240 or .250. This man -may have been the most valuable mem ber of the team, although there may have been two or three ,.300 hitters, under the present system, in the, same bunch. "These . rules, if followed, would bring the players who really help to win games into the limelight. The nlai-er who makes runs rather than mere base hits Is the valuable man to a team." IZZY HAS TWELVE TWTRLERS. Sends Out Call to Report March 14 A Full Roster. Wichita, Kan., 3"eb. 13. The 1911 Wichita baseball team will report here for spring practice March 14, orders to that effect having been sent out by Manager Isbell Saturday. Several major league clubs, the Chicago Amer icans and Boston Americans in par ticular, will play here on their train Ir - trip, and Isbell want3 to get Ills men assembled for these games. - In addition he will play a number of the Western association and Kansas State league teams and possibly the Okla homa City team of the Texas league. .

President John son Of ttlA lfao-llA u 0 ir iimtt-tn vt. other cities had been received point ing out aisaavantages in the scheme to keep secret the identity of official scorers and he thought the proposi tion had so little chance to find favor in the eyes of the club owners that he probably would not present it to them at the coming schedule meeting. The strongest protest came from St, Louis, seat of the trouble out of which grew the idea to protect the game from similar affairs In future. The objections are based chiefly on the ground that there would be more opportunity for cheating than If the full glare of publicity is thrown about the scoring at all times.

In the Blue Grass league the coming season two schedules of sixty games each will be played and there will be two pennants. This will give the teams which fail to get an early start in the first series a cance to win the pennant In the second series. After both series are ended a cham pionship contest Is to be played be tween the leaders of each series. The South Atlantic league tried the scheme last season and it proved a big success. The teams which finished at the bot tom in the first series were at the top in the second series. NO RECORDS BROKEN AT CLASSIC One Man in 600 Equaled a High Mark. Boston, ' Feb. 13.

Senators Thought Kansan's Point of Order purely Safe. ON AN INDIAN BILL. Amendment Before Body Pro Tided for Payment, $600,000. Bristow Only Man Opptsed to Confirmation of Smith. Washington. Feb. 13. The result of a contest in the senate a few days ago Illustrates what may be done toy a few minutes' talk by a member of that body wjio knows the facts involved In a question and who is able to state them in a few words. ". When the Indian appropriation bill was being considered in the senate. Senator Charles Curtis made a point of order against an amendment, which provided for the payment to certain Oreek Indians of the sum of $600,000. Senator Owen, who favored the item, thought Vice President Sherman would sustain the point of order made by the Kansas senator, so instead of con fining their remarks to the point of order both he and Senator McCumber argued the merits of the claim, intend ing to appeal from the decision of the chair. This they did, when he -sustained the point made by Senator Cur tis, but the Kansas- senator made a three minute speech on Its merits, and when the vote was taken only three senators voted with the Oklahoma sen ator. , ., It wag admitted by all that the brief statement of Senator Curtis caused a large majority to vote in support of the ruling of the vice president. The speech of Senator Curtis was short. It was as follows; What Senator Curtis Said. '. "In view of the fact that there have been so many misstatements in regard to this claim. I should like to take a few minutes' time in explaining it to the senate. It is a very old claim. In the first place, by the third article of the treaty of 1866 it was stipulated that the government should sell certain lands and out of the proceeds pay to the loyal Creek Indians $100,000 to reimburse them in proportion to their respective losses. The land was sold and the money was turned into the treasury. In 1872, act of July 15, $100,000 was appropriated, to be applied pro rata on the several amounts awarded under the treaty of 1866. Afterwards the Indians present ed their claims to the secretary of the interior. That officer, in a report dated February IS, 1879, held they had no further legal claim. Again, on July 29, 1882, the same claim was presented, and the secretary of the interior held that they had no further legal claim. On the 10th of May, 1883, the matter was submitted to the court of claims. The court of claims, in passing upon the case, held that the Indians had no legal claim and that the $100,000 was In full settlement of all claims of said Creek Natipn for . damages and losses of ' every ' kind growing out of the late " rebellion. The opinion of the court will be found In nineteenth court of claims reports, at page 675. I should like to read just a part of the syllabus of the case: " 'III. The provision in the treaty of 1866 that "thet stipulations of this treaty are to be in full settlement of all claims of said Creek Nation for damages and losses of every kind growing out of the late rebellion" applies to individual and personal as well as to national demands. " 'IV. By the Creek treaty, 1866, the United States reserved $100,000 from moneys to be paid the nation and stipulated that that amount should be divided among the loyal Creeks "in proportion to their several losses;" but they did not thereby assume the losses wthich loyal Individuals suffered by rea son of their having faithfully adhered to the government during the war.' "Alter that decision nothing more was done in reference to this claim until the agreement was entered into with the Creeks in 1902. In that in strument the congress of tfhe United States agreed that this loyal Creek claim and another claim should be submitted to the senate for settlement as a board of arbitration. A resolu tion or a memorial was presented. It was sent to the committee on Indian affairs in the regular order of busi ness. The committee on Indian af fairs was never selected by the senate aa a board or a court to adjust this claim. The memorial was referred to it in the usual course of business. The committee took jurisdiction, however, and reported the matter back, but not by way of resolution. They selected the Indian appropriation bill, and put the award, so called, in the Indian appro PTiation bill of March .3, 1903. Kansan Stated Hia Contention. "Now, my contention is that there was no award or any Kind or cnaracter until the Indian appropriation bill be came a law. Had the committee re ported to the senate a resolution, the senate might pass it one day and the next day. if the senate had been con vinced that they made a mistake, it could reconsider and reduce the amount from $1,200,000 to $600,000, and no one would contend that the latter action would not stand as the final action of of the senate. "The committee selected an appro priation bill. Under the general pro cedure of the house and senate the bill must go to the house. It went to the house. The house disagreed to the amendment. The whole matter went to conference, and in conference the house and senate agreed to an award of $600,000. It came back to the senate, was approved, and 1 the only legal award was the award of 5600,000 made on the 3d day of March, 1903, and the pre siding officer of the senate who passed upon this question two years ago well said that the senate could not go back of the act of March 8, 1903. That is the law. and that is the award and the only award made by the senate. I pointed out yesterday that when the $600,000 was appropriated, the pro- Persistent Saving on a well Defined Plan s is what counts.

Kan. vision of the act was that the Indians should receive this sum in full settle ment. That resolution of the tribal council passed a resolution accepting that amount in full settlement. That resolution of the tribal council was sent to the president of the United States, was approved by the president, and was a receipt in full. In addition to that, when the payment was made to each individual, each individual signed a receipt in full, and it refers , to this award, the only award made, and that is the award of March 3, 1903. i The truth of the matter is this claim has already been . paid in full twice, and I contend now, as I con tended on the conference committee, I that had the senate been advised of the J true facts In this case they would not have consented to have paid one other j cent to the Indians over and above the $100,000 that was paid in the first- in stance. These Indians have been paid In full. "Then it is said there is nothing In here that is obnoxious to the rule, and that it is carrying out the provisions of a treaty. There is no treaty, but a mere agreement, an act of congress, because the policy in dealing with the Indians was changed in 1871, and in that agreement there is no provision for the payment of attorneys' fees, and yet In this item you find provision made for the payment of attorneys fees which was not contemplated by the act of 1902. There is nothing of that kind provided for In the agree ment. This Is an attempt to put gen eral legislation on an appropriation bill, and I submit, Mr. President, that it is subject to the point of order I made against it last evening." Bristow Voted Against Smith. Judge Walter I. Smith of Iowa, one of the regular of regulars of the house, recently nominated to be circuit judge of the Eighth judicial circuit, to suc ceed to the vacancy caused by the pro motion of Judge Van Tevanter to the supreme court, was confirmed by the senate with but one senator voting "No." That was Senator Bristow of Kansas. It had been known for some time that there was a division of opin ion among insurgent Republicans in the senate as to the prdpriety of con firming Smith. No one ever questioned his legal ability. But the insurgents wanted Judge Norris of Nebraska, leading insurgent of the house, ap pointed to the office. Senators LaFollette and Brlsow were not well pleased with the prospect of; confirming Smith. They tried to or ganize a fight on the Iowan's nomina- tion. but made little headway, In view of Senator Cummins' attitude in the matter. When it was moved in execu tive session of the senate to confirm Smith, Senator LaFollette was absent in Wisconsin, planning to launch his booms for the presidency, but Senator Bri&tow, who was presented, aemanaea a vote. Orf a showing, tne senator irom Kansas was the only member of that body who voted "No." SCHOOIi CHANGE 18 OPPOSED. Kansas Superintendents Also Are Against New Institutions. Emporia, Kan.. Feb. 13.
