p. p. `$helby to be General Manage.
Of the Great ?o'thean O, the Sound.. ,Anothier Year For M. E. Keefe to Qomplete His Colorado Contract.. site-Shaped Tracks-Rallroadlng as It Was Regarded Fifty Years Ago World's Fair. P. P. Shelby, general traffic manager of the Great Northern road, is on his way to the coast, and will probably take up his residence in this city on his arrival, says the Seattle Post-Intelligenoer. If he should not remove from St. Paul to Seattle at this time, he will do so in the very near future. Mr. Shelby will take the general manage ment of the coast lines and the western di visions of the main line, and will also take charge of the Portland & Puget Sound road. It is pretty generally understood that the Union Pacific has given up all hope of being able to complete this road and will sell the work already done to the Great Northern,_which will complete the line. This work will, it is understood, be in Mr. Shelby's charge. It is understood that he will be given the title of second vice president and hold a position in Seat tle analogous to that of C. H. Prescott, seo ond vice president of the Northern Pacific at Tacoma. While St. Paul will be the headquarters of the road, Seattle will be in a sense, the second headquarters, with Mr. Shelby as executive office in charge. Mr. Shelby has the reputation of being one of the best railroad men in the coun try, and is particularly able in developing business for a new road through a sparsely settled country. He was born at Painee ville, O., in June, 1845, and is thus not quite 47 years old. He entered the railroad service on the Union Pacific in 1866 as a brakeman, and went through the several steps in the operating department as con ductor, baggageman and yardmaster until 1867. In that year he came west as a clerk in the office of the station agent at Omaha. In 1870 he was appointed station agent at at Omaha, in 1875 he became division super intendent, in 1878 was arpointed assistant general freight, and in 1882 general freight agent. From January, 1886, to September, 1887, he was assistant general traffic man ager. On October 16, 1887, he was appoint ed general manager of the Montana Cen tral after its completion, and in that capa oity showed his ability in promoting the development of the state's resources by in ducing eastern men of capital to come out and locate along the line. Fiom that posi tion he went to St. Paul as general tratfio manager. a position which he still holds. H. H. KEEFE'S CONTRACT. It Will Take Him Another Year to Com plete It. For several days past rumors have been afloat in the railroad circles prophesying the abandonment of work on the Busk Ivanhoe tunnel-one of the costliest under takings of the kind ever attempted in the mountains, says the Denver News. The big hole is on the line of the Colorado Mid land, near the summit of the range at Hagerman pass, at an elevation of 10,800. Operations were begun about a year ago by a stock company containing a number of heavy capitalists on its rolls. Recent re ports conveyed the information that dif ficulties had been encountered which greatly discouraged the company and made further progress a question of grave doubt on the part of the stockholders. M. H. Keefe, who has directed the opera tions at the tunnel since the work was in augurated, effectually disposes of the rumor. "It is true we have had a hard job on our hands for a month past," said he, "but the main difficulties have been over •come and we expect no more trouble. The difficulty was encountered at the Ivanhoe end of the tunnel. Although the experts and geologists gave it as their opinion that the mountain was of granite, we came to a fault which was filled with muck, making it necessary to hold up the ground with timbers. Even this was very difficult to do on account of the large flow of water, but everything will be made secure by solid masonry. The fault has been crossed and we expect solid rock he eafter." Mr. Keefe said that 4,800 feet of the work is completed, that the total length neces sary to tunnel being 9,400 feet. He is con fident that the work will be done by the end of another twelve months. 'Iwo hun dred men are employed constantly in the great undertaking. The tunnel will effect a cut-off of nine miles between Busk and Ivanhoe, and also reduce the grade from 8 per cent. to 1.40. The new tunnel is 800 feet below the Hacerman tunnel. Theroad of nine miles, which will be abandoned, is said to have cost $2,000,000. It was planned by English engineers who were not tamiliar with mountain engineering. KITE-SHAPED TRACK. How a Tramp Was Fouled by Oneof Them on the Santa Fe in California. Kite-shaped tracks are all the rage now adays and, not to be behind the times, the Santa Fe has built an immense one on this model, taking in the principal towns in San Bernardino, Los Angeles and Orange coun ties. Starting at San Bernardino, for exs ample, one may take a train and ride for several hours, never passing through the same town twice, and yet at the end of the trip he will be juast where he started from. A tramp who was not familiar with this unique bit of railroading, and who had been passing some time amid the lovely orange grovea of San Boernardino valley, decided it was time to seek fresh fields, so with a party of his friends he went to the Santa Fe station in the city just mentioned, and. finding a train there on the point or startinel out, he bade his comrades a long farewell, ageed to meet them somewhere in New Mexico within a couple of months, and as the train moved, swung himself on a brake-beam and was soon flying through the country I The train made many halts, but none long enough to allow the imroecunious traveler an oppor tunety to get out and stretch himself. Finally, however, a place of largle size was approached, and when the train stopped it was evident a long stop was to be made. The tramp concluded it must be a division headquarters, so he sneakedout from under the car, straightened up, and then looked about to see what sort of a place he had struck anyhow. T'here was a familiar air to his surroundings, and looking at the sign board on the station, he was paralyzed to see the name "San lBernadino." He had put in the best part of a day riding on a belt train over a kite-shaped track I FIFTY YEAitS AGO. Chancellor Livingaton Said Steam Ral. roadlng Was Impracteable. The following letter, in reply to a sugges tion about railroads, written over fifty yeari ago by Chancellor Livingston, who had been associated with his brother-in-law Hobert Fulton, in application of steam tr vessels, shows the state of improvement ir that day: ALBANY, N.

Asked a Mllion, The offiioals of the Baltimore A Ohio a few days ago rwent to Chicago to look over their terminal facilities on the World's l fair gonads. They were prett well sati. fled but thought it they eonld seeure an additlonal strip of 800 feet that they would e in ship-shape. The officials were pre pared to pay a gpood rouand sernm for the use af the additional 800 feet, but were not c ready to cover it with diamonds in order to secure it. When they called upon the I parties having charge of the rentals on the h fair grounds they were told that the Balti more fr Ohio railroad compenr could have the use of the 800 fest for 61,000,000, The railroad officials almost lost their breath. and rushed out of the office as fast as their legs would carry them. Salaries of Rallway Men. t The salaries of railway men in this 1 country are not too large, but they are e princely as compared with those paid inen Europe, as the following examples of the wages of German railway employe indi- 1 eate: Bookkeepers and secretaries, $500 to $900 a year; ticket stampers and office clerks, $250 to $875; porters and guards; $200 to $900; engine drivers and maehin ists, $800 to $500, or not over $10 a week; stokers, from $5 to $7 a week, and brake men from about $4 to $6 a week, To Beduee the Time. The Lackawanna, it is reported, is pre- I paring to contest with the New York Cen- I tral for a record in fast passenger service, and for that purpose four engines have been recently built by the company with drivers six and a half feet in diameter. The engines have, it is stated, been built so as take water while runnine , but track tanks will have to be built. It is said to be the intention of the company to make the trip from New York to Buffalo forty minutes quicker than the New York Central.
