All the Roads Vying With Each Other in the Matter of Mal.. ing Time. Managers Have Faith in Edison's Promises and Are Waiting for His Inventions. Prosperity of the tlo Grnde . Western Burlington South Dakota Extension -Cattle Shipments. About this time last year railroad man agers were holding almost daily meetings for the purpose of devising conourrent methods of reducing operating expenses. One of the ways proposed for doing this, which excited much disuession at the time. weeas the curtailment, if not entire abolition, of fast trains, both in passenger and freight service. For a time it looked very much as if a retrograde movement would be made in this direction. The public were getting to good service for the money they paid, it was nrdad, and the fast serv cle, while very expensive to the companies, did not bring back such returns in revenue as warranted its continuance, unless special rates were paid for it. For some reason or other the scheme did not go through, and since then the fast service, especially in the passenger depart ments. has been steadily increased. The effort to-day is entirely in a different direc tion from what it was tvwlve months ago. All roads, no matter in what direction they run, north, south, east or west, are vying with each other to see which can furnish the most expeditions service, and a rate of steed is maintained on all of them at which twenty years ago railroad managers would have held up their hands. in terror. There are very few roads having any repu tation to maintain that have not added one or two fast trains to their passenger service since this time last year, Nor are there any signs of this movement coming to an end. The fact is, it seems to be only beginning, and conservative railroad managers are be ginning to predict that in a very few years from now the highest speed of the present time will be considered little better than a snail's pace, and people will be wondering how they could content themselves with creeping along so slowly. This prediction is based on the assertion of Edison that he has solved the problem of the apgplication of electricity to railroad locomotion. It is one of the wonders of the day the confidence which is reposed in this assertion by careful railroad managers. They do not seeam to entertain a doubt as to the feasibility of the plan and they are waiting with oonident expectancy to see its experimental application on a scale large enough to prove its general utility. Edison himself says that with 100-pound steel rails and a rook-ballasted roadbed these is noth ing in the world to prevent a rate of 200 miles an hour being made. Whether peo- i pie will want to be whirled over the ground so rapidly as that or not remains to be seen. At all events the prevailing opinion of prac- I tical railroad men now is that they are only on the threshold of fast service. THE RIO OGtRANDE WESTERN. The Change From Narrow to Standard Gauge Justified by Results. The Rio Grande Western has always had the advantage to be derived from a good geographical location, but so long as the line was narrow gauge and the finances of the company in unsatisfactory shape, the prop erty was heavily handicapped and not free to develop its full possibilities. Now that this has been changed-now that the gauge of the road is of standard width, permitting of the interchange of traffic, and ears with other roads, and the company's finances are in the best of shape-earn'ngs and traffic are expanding in just the way that might be expected, and, moreover, the acquisition of pew branches and extensions will serve fur ther to strengthen the hold on local traffic now possessed. As compared with roads in the east, the Rio Grande Western realizes rather high average rates, the average on freight in the late year having been 1.954 cents per ton per mile, the comparing with 2.07 cents in the year precseeding. While the average mast be expected to decline, the increase in traffio should furaish com pensation for the loss resultingin that way. P'his, however, relates entirely to the future. At present, as already pointed out, earn ings are increasing in a very decided and a very encouraging manner, and President Palmer is fully justified in the remarks he s.ape in the opening paragraph of the re port that stockholders have no cause to feel disappointed at the results of the opera tions, "which have fully vindicated the wisdom of the large expenditures made to strengthen the line since it was dec ded to convert it into a link in the most central of the great thorofares across the continment." A Burlington Extension. The Burlington railroad has decided upon extending its line into Spearfish, situated sixteen miles northwest of Deadwood. Au thentic information that such a move was contemplated was received the other morn ing, when a train of fifteen cars pulled into Deadwood and began unloading a complete grading outfit. Teams and men were also sent out on the surveyed line and have al ready commenced work. Fifty more car loads of men' teams, wagons and ecrapers are now on the way in and due to reach the work within forty-eight hours. Kilpatrick Bros., who have the contract for grading, state that they will put 1,000 men on the work within the next two weeks. lMontana Cattle Shipments. C. F. M. Tinling, general agent of the Northwestern line,who has made headquar ters in Miles City since last July, was in Helena yesterday. He says the cattle ship ments from Montana this year have been greater than in any previous year, but that they are now about over. The last conetgn ments over the Northern Pacific this year will be made on Sunuday next. Ho far, more than 9.000 cars of Montana cattle have been handled by roads east of St. Paul. The Northwestern has had its share of this businers, and Mr. Tinling is very well pleased wilti the season's business. He has represented his line in Montana for a num baer of years, and has as large an acquaint ance in the state as any resident. A Scheme to Prevent Scalping. A prominent official of one of the Chi cago has hit upon a plan for baffling the ticket scalpers, which he thinks might be used to advantage during the World's fair. His method for reducing rates during the exposition is to add or deduct from the regular fare one way 25 per cent., and make that a basis on which to fix all rates. For example, the regular rate from New York to Chicago is $20, and if low one way rates are desired eubstract 25 per cent., making the rate from New York to Chicago ~15, and fix the return at $10. 'IThis would leave the scalpers without any margin to work on, and the railroad would get all the reve nue derived from the sale of such tickets. It is prorosed to apply the same system in making rates from all points in the United States if the roads can be induced to adopt the scheme. The matter will probably be laid before the Colombian passenger com mittee at its next meeting. itlo Grande Southern. The Rio Grande Southern will be com pleted its entire length, from Dallas to Durango, Col., 180 miles, before the first of the year. The road has been built by par ties interested in the Denver & Rio Grande, nad entered into a twenty-five-year traflic alliance with the Denver & Rio Grande for nan l rohe Of 'nbntrh1u The pass oe ol t tkt riolthet agitteu. hee pise timber iof r r stt* and saw mills have qlickly tolpi the traoeklev ng.

There are now 100 miles in operation. B lreat Northern Extestlon The Spokane Review says that it learns on the most reliable information that the Great Northern company is upon the eve of letting the contract for the construction of eighty-five miles of its line upon the weat slope of the Oaseade mountains. Spokane contractors are now on the sound for the purpose of bidding upon this important piece of work, and the news that the con tract has been let may be expected soon. This contract will cover the roughest and most expensive piece of the entire line of Sthe road. It will include several tunnels, Sand the cost is roundly estimated at $4, 000,000. The contractors, preparatory to the beginning of work upon the line itself, will have to build a wagon road eighty miles long, over which to haul their sup plies. This road will cost $160,000. It is estimated that two yearswill be required in which to complete that portion of the rail road. Areund the World. Ticket Agent Keyes, of the Union Pacific, is on the lookout for some one who wants to make a rapid trip around the world. His line has recently placed on sale a ticket for the globe circlersa costing $1150 from Helena and return, and according to Mr. Keyes' figu es the trip can be made in sixty-four days, twenty-nine minutes and thirty-three seconds. That is, if the traveler has luck. To the person who makes the trip in the min imum time, the road Will present an en graving of "The Oldest Inhabitant." The route is as follows: Helena via the Union Pacific to the Missouri river, any line to Chicago, any line to New York, any steam ship to London, Pacificand Oceanic steam ship to Sydney, Oceanic steamship to San Francisco, Southern Pacific to Ogden, Union Paciflo to Helena.
