Confirmations of Biblical Record*.
Professor G. Frederick Wright of Ober
lin college addressed the members of the
Congregational Club on "Geological Con
firmation of Biblical History" at a meet
ing of that organization held in the First
Congregational church last evening. He
argued that records written in the earth
could not be contravened and thus af
forded better proof than human records.
The lecture was written after a trip made
to the Holy Land, during which Profes
sor Wright studied the geology of the
country thoroughly, finding much to con
firm fragmentary bits of history that had
previously been considered doubtful. Tho
speaker gave it as his opinion that the
flood followed close upon the glacial
period, and in answer to objections based
on chronological grounds, said the best
critics now admitted that no chronology
of events prior to the time of Abraham
could be relied upon.

Shown by Election of Miller as Bur
lington Traffic Manager.
Important Developmental Expected
Including Ilealjfnatlou of llnr
rlmau Front > P.
The election of Darius Miller as vice
president and traffic manager of the Bur
lington by the new Burlington proprietary
company is considered good evidence that
James J. Hill has been finally successful
ln carrying out his plans in connection
with the management of that system.
The meeting of prominent interests con
nected with the Burlington was held at
4i» Wall street yesterday afternoon and
was secret. Among those present Were
G. E. Harris, J. J. Hill, E. H. Harriman,
G. W. Perkins, of J. P. Morgan & Co.;
\V. P. Clough, solicitor for the Northern
Securities company; James Stillman and
John S. Kennedy.
The meeting lasted nearly two hours,
and at its conclusion it was learned that
the following were elected as officers of
the proprietary company: W. P. Clough,
E. H. Harriman, G. B. Harris, J. J. Hill,
J. S. Kennedy, W. H. Mclntyre, C. J.
Pain, G. E. Perkins, Mortimer Schiff,
James Stillman These directors elected
as officers: G. B. Harris, president;
Darius Miller, vice president and traffic
manager; J. C. Peasley, treasurer.
The greatest significance attaches to
the election of Mr. Miller as traffic man
ager. It is regarded as another evidence
of the strength of Mr. Hill's position in
the great contest which has taken place
for the control of the Burlington as
against all other interests. In this con
test Mr. Miller was the bone of conten
Harriman May Pnll Out.
A number of other important develop
ments are looked for this week. Follow
ing the example of Mr. Hill and Mr.
Schiff in resigning as directors of one or
the other constituent companies, Mr. Har
riman's resignation from Northern Pa
cific is expected this week. It is also as
serted on good authority that still other
resignations from both the Northern Pa
cific and Great Northern boards are pend
Delay in U. P. Statement.
The tardiness in issuing the Union Pa
cific statement is causing much comment
in railway and financial circles through
out the country. It is now several
months over due. Its failure to appear
at various Btated times has been at
tributed to insignificant causes. But the
understanding is now general that for
legal reasons it is deemed inexpedient to
make a statement of the participation of
the Union Pacific in the settlement of the
Northern Pacific trouble or its relations
toward that road. Union Pacific Interests
are afraid of the Nebraska laws and are
said to realize that their position in the
"divided control" of the Burlington from
a legal standpoint is weak. Wall street
now concedes that a big legal knot must
be untied before the Northern Securities
company and the community of interests
in railroading can expect easy sailing.
The action of the western governors has
placed the railroads on the defensive,
so that the spectacle is presented of a
great railroad corporation like the Union
Pacific forced to deny vital information
concerning its affairs to its own stock
Railroads and Copper.
Referring undoubtedly to the Amalga
mated Copper company the New York
Sun in a review of the situation says:
What Is the exact present relation of the
Union Pacific road to the Burlington, North
ern Pacific and Great Northern systems?
What obligation has it assumed in its lease
of the Burlington Jointly with the Northern
Securities company, If it has leased it at
a!l? By whom and at what price was th<?
famous block of Northern Pacific preferred
stock purchased for the Union Pacific rail
way, and what is tho form and character
of the burden growing out -of this purchase
that now rests upon the Union Pacific's stock
holders? Was this action taken by the Union
Pacific board of directors, or by only a few
of them, or by one of them alone? Answers
to these questions may determine whether
there may not be. a sfall difference after all
between the management of a railroad cor
poration and that of a copper company.
Foreign Railroads Place Order* in
the I nlted States.
New York, Dec. 17.—A number of im
portant contracts for locomotives to be
used by various foreign governments and
private railroads have been placed in the
United States within the last few days.
The American Locomotive company of
this city has captured a contract for
thirty locomotives, intended for the Jap
anese government railways. The engines
will be built at Schenectady.
The same concern is also building
twelve locomotives for the Kuishi rail
way, one of the big private roads operated
in the Japanese empire. This makes the
sixth order—seyenty-two engines in ail
that the American Locomotive company
has secured from that road within the last
two years. The Hokkaido railway, con
trolled by the Japanese government has
also ordered six American built engines
The Baldwin Locomotive Works of
Philadelphia has been awarded a contract
calling for eighteen locomotives to be
shipped .to the West Australian govern
ment railways and thirty-six American
locomotives have also been contracted for
on behalf of the New South Wales gov
ernment railways. The H. K. Porter
company of Pittsburg has been allotted an
order for four locomotives for use in the
coal mines near Johannesburg, South
Credited With Being Back of Stand
ard Steel Cor Company.
James J. Hill is credited with being
the promoter of the Standard Steel Car
company, the organization of which was
announced several days ago, with head
quarters at Pittsburg. The new Standard
company is endeavoring to secure control
of the Pressed Steel Car company at
Pittsburg. The big railway interests
with which Mr. Hill is associated are be
lieved to be ambitious to build steel cars
and manufacture other railway supplies
so as to be independent of the market
entirely. No less than $30,000,000 will be
at the command of the new syndicate.
Some 100 Miles Will Be Laid Xext
President Stlckney of the Chicago Great
Western has announced that 100 miles of
the road will doable-tracked in 1902. The
second track is to be laid over portions
of the system where it will best facili
tate traffic. The line between Minne
apolis and Randolph will receive a portion
of this improvement. Second track will
also be laid forty miles east of Dubuque,
out of Oelwin, lowa, in three directions
on the Minneapolis, Chicago and Kansas
City lines, and out of Chicago.
President Stickney will leave toward
the end of the week and spend the great
er j>art of the winter in New York.

How a Quick Witted Thief Secured
a Purse.
A Woman Branded as a Kleptoma
niac So She Could Work
A peculiar swindling game was worked
successfully on the lost and found depart
ment of the Powers' Mercantile company's
store, this morning, as a result of which
the company is out a trifle over $22.
A purse was found by the young woman
in charge of a certain department; and
was promptly turned In to the lost and
found counter. Scarcely five minutes
later a tall, well-dressed woman, evident
ly laboring under excitement, rushed, up
to the desk and inquired whether any
thing had been seen 1 of a lady's purse,
containing $22 in bills, and less than a
dollar in small change. She was asked
to describe the purse, and did so perfectly,
telling the clerk in charge that it con
tained, In addition to the money, a sample
of cloth, a number of hairpins and a re
turn ticket to Faribault, Minn.
The description tallied exactly with the
facts and the purse was accordingly
turned over to her without further ques
tions. The woman went away, apparently
much pleased, after expressing profuse
•About twenty minutes later a second
woman made her appearance. She, too,
was looking for a lost purse and her de
scription of the missing article was more
exact, if anything than that of the first
applicant. She said she had left the
purse at a counter where she had made
a purchase, and that when she returned
for it the girl told her It had been turned
in to the lost department.
The clerk was In a quandary, but finally
asked for the igirl, who had found the
missing; article and sent it to the office.
She came accompanied by a 3oorwalker,
to whom the entire matter was explained.

"You found a lady's purse about haif an
hour ago?" queried the floorwalker.
The "Other Lady" Had It.
"Yes, sir; and I sent it right down here, t
Why," glancing at the woman who stood |
before the desk, "here is the lady it be
longs to, now. I remember seeing her
at the counter, and it was right after that
that the other lady found the purse there
and handed it to me."
"What other lady?" burst simultane
ously from the floorwalker and the clerk.
'"W rhy, I don't know. She was standing
at the counter and 1 saw her pick up the
purse and open it. She looked inside and
then said: 'It's too bad, someone has left
a purse here with a good deal of money
in it and 1 can't find any name or ad
dress.' "
'•What did she look like?"
"Well, she was tall and dark, and neat
ly dressed. I. didn't notice particularly,
but I know she wore a boa, a black boa
It was."'
"The very one," groaned, the clerk.
"What did she do, after she gave you
the purse?"
"She looked at some things, but she
didn't buy anything. Then she walked
away. It's all right, Isn't it? I turned
the purse in as soon as I got it. I didn't
suppose that woman would take anything
out of it. Did she take some of the
The explanation, of course, made the
whole matter perfectly plain. Woman
number one had left her purse on the
counter. Woman number two had picked
it up and opened it. Then, seeing she
was observed, she had not dared to keep
it; but had handed it over and later
claimed it at the lost and found desk. Of
course, she was able to describe the pursQ
and contents exactly, and naturally it
was surrendered to her.
The swindler has not yet been appre

ever, the firm reimbursed the real owner
for her loss.
A Clever "Lifting" Game.
This is the time of year when the big
stores are on ,the lookout for swindlers,
kleptomaniacs and kindjed gentry; and
yet, even with the most thorough pre
cautions, they are frequently victimized.
A short time ago the young lady in
charge of the jewelry counter at the
Powers' store sent for one of the special
detectives assigned to duty there and had
a man arrested for suspicious behavior.
Her story was a peculiar one. She said
the man had appeared at her counter and
she had seen him place a number of
rings among others on a tray. At first
she wasn't quite sure, so she watched
him, and a moment later he drew a num
ber of stickpins from his pocket and slyly
placed them with the others on the
counter. That sort of thing had never
happened before, and the girl thought
it was too good to be true, so she had
the man arrested and he was taken into
the office.
There he broke down completely, ex
plaining that his wife was a kleptomaniac
and had stolen the jewelry .the girl had
seen Him return to the counter. He did-
I not want to keep the stolen articles, but
I neither did he want publicity; and so, he
said, he had determined to return them
without the company's knowing anything
about .it.
The floorwalker to whom the matter
had been referred was properly sympa
thetic; and as the story seemed credible
the man was released. Before he left,
however, he explained that he lived in
constant terror of his wife's being de
tected in her pilferings and arrested;
and he described her and asked that if
she were eaugnt stealing anything the
bill be sent to him for settlement, and
the woman allowed to leave with her
"I agreed to that," §aid the floorwalker,
"this morning, and the poor fellow went
away, thanking me for what I had done |

The woman was caught stealing. We let i
her go, and sent for the husband. He 1
came, broke down again, but paid up and
expressed his thanks anew for our con

number of times, and might still be hap

whole thing had been simply a clever
scheme to protect the woman whenever
she was detected. They counted on her
getting a good deal of stuff when the
man wasn't caught. You see, there was
absolutely no risk, and the game might
be worked now if it hadn't been for the
foolishness of the man in spoiling a good

in the tailoring department. A man came
in and) ordered a suit of clothes, making
the customary deposit. Afterwards he re
turned to have it tried on; and after it
was finished came back again, to see that
the fit was satisfactory. He went into
one of the trying on closets, and then,
when the tailor's back was turned, at

ing his old one behind him. He was
caught, though, and made to pay for his
