NEW ENGLAND FILMS.
Quincy Adams Sawyer at Novelty
Friday and Saturday.
The much talked of and well known
New England rural comedy, "Quincy
Adams Sawyer," has been made Into
a. great special feature picture by
the Puritan Special Features com
pany of Boston, Mas. This Is the
same company that controls the play
and these are the first pictures ever
made of this great rural play and
fjreat success is predicted for it in
picture form. The photoplay of
Quincy Adams Sawyer" consists of
over fifty different scenes of com
edy, country characters and action.
There is something doing all the time,
all the scenes in the play have been
faithfully reproduced in the picture
and the clean, wholesome atmosphere
stands right out and the same sweet
love story will make the picture play
as big a hit as it has been on the
stage play. An absolute true picture
of New England life and character.
This picture will be shown at the
Novelty theater Friday and Saturday
of this week.
Mayor Will Name I M. Wood.
Mayor Cofran will name L. , M.
Wood as the architect to draw up
plans, specifications and estimates for
the rebuilding of "Fire Station No. 1"
in North Topeka. If Mr. Wood's
name Is approved by the commission,
he will begin work at once. He re
cently compiled a detailed report of
the dangerous condition of the build
ing; declared it ready to collapse at
any time. Mr. Wood's report was con
sidered by the mayor, the fire mar
shal and the commissioner of public
property. The city attorney, being
asked his opinion, declared the com
mission could legally appropriate the
emergency fund for the reconstruc
tion of the station. Mr. Eone said
this morning that the fund, which the
statutes state shall not exceed $25,000,
is $17,000 at this time.
"If Mr. Wood's name is approved,
said the mayor, "he will bppin work at
once. The construction of the station
will start as soon as possible."

Samuel Parks, her lover, convicted of
the same offense, and who will serve
the same term as the woman. They
bade a tearful goodby and will see no

Delivery of Mikado Type En
gines In Kansas.
Rock Island Receives 25 Pow
IMMENSE HAULING CAPACITY
Built to Meet Difficult Operat
Other Items of Interest in the
The first signal lor an Increase In
Rock Island motive power for the
i handling of the fall crops came to the
i general offices of the road today when
the office of A. s. sweet, general man-
New Rock Island
ager, was notified of the recent order
for twenty-five new . Mikado type
powerful freight locomotives. This
engine, the largest In use on the Rock
Island freight service, will be sent to
Kansas for the work on the Kansas,
El Paso and Colorado divisions.
These locomotives have been tested
by the Rock Island Lines. The first
delivery some time ago relieved the
road of a shortage of power in times
when freight was coming iiuickly and
when a heavy demand was made on
motive power. It was found that the
hauling capacity is considerably larg
er than the other type of freight en
gines and the economy in fuel con
sumption has been marked.
These locomotives are being intro
duced in order to increase the ton
nage capacity and relieve freight con
gestion. The average load per pair
of driving wheels is nearly 60,000
pounds and in point of total weight
the locomotives are the heaviest of
their type thus far completed by the
builders the Baldwin Locomotive
Works. The engines were built la
accordance with specifications fur
nished by T. Rumney who was assist
ant second vice president at the time.
Compared with the average type of
freight locomotives used on the Rock
Island the new Mikados show an in
crease in tractive force of 35 per cent,
in weight on driving wheels of 31 per
cent and in total equivalent heating
surface of 83 per. cent. , The engines
are equipped with-, fire tube super
heaters. On tha basis of water eva
porating surface alone, the. locomo
tives show an increase of 33 'per cent
over the old class and this is prac
tically in proportion to the tractive
force. Therefore the increase in rela
tive boiler capacity measured on a
heating surface basis, is provided by
the superheater and Is approximately
5 0 per cent. This means increased
hauling capacity for the new engines
plus the added advantage of taking
the larger tonnage at a higher speed
than could be maintained ty the old
The boilers of the new Mikados pre
sent a few features : that are worthy
of mention in the railroad mechanical
world. The firebox is radically stayed.
The superheater is of the Schmidt
type. It provides 1050 square feet
of superheating surface and the ele
ments are located in 36 tubes each
5 Vt inches in diameter.
The frames are of vanadium cast
steel with back sections of hammered
iron. The front frames are single and
are cast in one piece with the main
frames which are six inches wide and
measure seven Inches !n depth over
the pedestals. The rear frames are m
the form of slabs and are 2 inches
The tender is of the Vanderbilt typo
the only engine of this type on this
district. The tenders have a capacity
of 9,000 gallons of water and 16 tons
of coal. The tank has a diameter of
eight feet, nine inches and the frame
is composed of 6x4 inch angles with
steel bumpers. The trucks have cast
steel side frames and steel tired
These locomotives have a ratio of
adhesion of 4.12. The weight on
drivers is thus fully utilized and. as
has been pointed out. the boiler ca
pacity is sufficient to insure free
The Mikados have be.-n specially
constructed to meet difficult operating
conditions and trials indicate that
their performance is satisfactory to
the road's freight service.

SAFETY HABIT IN CALIFORNIA.
Railway Commission Issues Rules for
Prevention of Accidents.
San Bernardino, Cal., June 19. The
railroad commission has announced a
series of rules and regulations, to go
into effect on July of this year, which
will make for greater safety in the
operation of all railroads in the state
of California. The atep is one of the
most important the commission has
taken and has for its general purpose
the elimination, as far as possible, of
the dangers attendant on the crossing
at grade of one railroad by another.
The commission lays down first a
standard form of construction for safe
ty interlocking devices which it orders
placed at the most dangerous cross
ings, where a separation of the grade
is impracticable. These safety Inter
locking devices must be of a form to
be approved by the commission and
must be effective as far as modern ma
chinery can go in preventing accidents
at such crossings. -
In addition, the commission lays
down a series of regulations to be ob
served by all railroads at points where
their tracks cross the tracks of other
railroads and where no interlocking
device Is provided.
GOOD EAKNTXGS IV MAT.
Gain of 8.3 Per Cent Shown by Last
The complete statement of United
States railroads making weekly re
ports shows that the earnings of all the
leading systems are remarkably well
sustained, the total of all returns re
ceived for May aggregating $37,745,
8S, a gain of no less than 8.3 per cent,
as compared with the earnings of the
same roads" for the corresponding
period a year ago. Very few roads
make smaller returns than in 1912,
and, where they occur, they are in
significant and are probably due to
local causes, so that they do not de
tract from the favorable comparison
as a whole.
On the other hand, there are many
Important systems which report mark-
ed Improvement, among them being
the Louisville & Nashville, whose
earnings for May are $379,004 larger
than in the same month last year;
Mobile & Ohio, 150,586; Chicago &
Alton, $208,685; Seaboard Air Line,
$91,364: Chicago. Indianapolis &
Louisville, $99,010; "Soo" line, $371,
514, and Central of Georgia, $37,800.
These gains are especially notable,
because in April and in March most of
these roads suffered severely from the
floods that occurred throughout the
districts they serve, and the fact that
their recovery has been so prompt
and so pronounced indicates clearly
that conditions, so far as they affect
the railroads, are generally favorable.
BUSINESS MEN RUN A ROAD.
Seward Merchants to Try Operation of
Alaska and Northern.
Tacoma, Wash., June 19. The roll
ing stock and trackage rights of the
Alaska &- Northern Railway were
turned over to a committee of Seward
business men to be operated for the
benefit of the community. This action
was taken by Chief Engineer Swanitz
of the railroad because of a demand
by the United States for the payment
of $67,000 mileage tax, which the rail
road company says congress expressly
relieved the company from paying un
til 1916. Contributions were made by
Seward business men to hire crews and
operate cars, which will carry supplies
to th rtniners and -settlers in the in
terior.: No fixed charge for this ser
vice is made, but the committee will
accept gifts of money.
