SUPERINTENDENT AND TRAIN.
MASTERS CHOSEN FOR THIS
DIVISION OF MILWAUKEE.
Local officials of the Chicago, Mil
waukee & Puget Sound today received
an order creating two new positions
on the line in this state, a trainmaster
on the Rocky Mountain division, to be
filled by C. C. Dimock, and a train
master on the Musselshell division, to
be filled by F. M. Melin. The official
announcement of the extension of the
Rocky Mountain division to include the
Montana railroad from Lombard to
Lewistown has also been received. The
order transferring Quperintendenj:
Hugh Spencer of the Mon tana railroad
to Miles City as superintendent of
the Musselshell division and the ex
tension of that division by the addition
of the trackage between Miles City and
Marmath, S. D., to it has also been
received. The Transmissouri division
of the road now raches from Mo
bridge to Marmath, S. D. All of these
orders become effective Sunday, Jan
uary 10. 1
Superintendent E. H. Barrett of the
Rocky Mountain division will continue
to maintain his office in Butte for
the time being. There is now in course
of construction at Three Forks a
three-story office building to be used
by the superintendent and other di
vision officers, but it will not be com
pleted for some time. The offire of
the superintendent of the Montana
railroad, which Mr. Spencer main
tained in Helena, will be moved to
Butte at once.
The New Boss.
Mr. Barrett, who, after Sunlay, will
be in charge of the road betwe'en BIutle
and Lewistown, has been railroading
for ..mre than ?0 years, and before
that time was in the employ of a
bridge and t u!lding concern in Des
Moines, Iowa. Seven years ago the St.
Paul people placed him in charge of
construction on the Rochelle & South
ern, a St. Paul feeder in Illinois.
Construction on that line finished,
Mr. Barrett was sent to South Da
kota, and placed in charge of construc
tion on the St. Paul between Cham
berlain add Rapid City. After he had
completed that line he went to Min
leapolis as trainmaster for the St. Paul.
When work was begun upon the Pa
cific coast extension of the St. Paul,
Barrett was sent out on that job, and
was in charge 6f construction from
Marmath, S. D., to Harlowtown, su
pervised the rebuilding of the Montana
railroad from there to Lombard, and
was in charge of the construction of
the Rocky Mountain division into
Butte. He is now superintendent of
one of the longest mountain divisions
The extension of his territory to
include the Montana railroad, it is
understood, was made because of his
expertness in railroading in difficult
places, and his ability as a builder of
'both grades and bridges. There still
remains a great deal of work to be
done on the Montana railroad and this
will be under the direction of Mr. Bar
rett.-Butte Inter Mountain.
MILtAUKE TO BUILD
ST. JOE RIVER TO BE USED TO
GENERATE MOTIVE POWER
FOR ELECTRIC TRAINS.
Seven large dams will be con
structed in the St. Joe river during
the next two years by the Milwaukee,
which, when completed, will be used
to generate electric power that will
run its trains through the mountain
A company capitalized at $500,000 and
known as the Idaho Water and Elec
tric, Power company has been organ
ized for the purpose. Plans have
been drawn and all estimates made
for the dams and active work will be
started, as soon as weather conditions
The electric trains will be put on
as soon as the dams and power
houses are completed, which will be in
about two years. The dams will be
built in the St. Joe, extending from
above Hoyt's flat down 'river toward
the town of St. Joe, Two of the dams
will be on the Coeur d'Alene forest
rfterve. These will be about a mile
and a half apart.
The total cost of building these
dams is estimated at about $300,000 to
$400,000. Each dam is figured to be
capable of generating several thou
sand horsepower.-Wallace Mimes.
Telephones in divers' helmets have

They won't be many blocks from

$2.000 and the house will cost $3.000
to build. Don't wait until next
