W '-' ' fit ^'nfl?iJ*&$ffi$i}*^h'^' RAILROADS. TO INCREASE SAFETY Two Twin City Roads Are in the Market to Buy Automatic . . Devices. They Are the Milwaukee and the -Bock Island, Says Rail- - , way Age. Two Minneapolis roads are considering the adoption of automatic safety signals. The Railway Age says this week: "Several roads are reported as being in the market for the purchase and in stallation of automatic signals. It is im possible to say if inquiries have been stimulated by the number of serious col lisions that have happened lately or from a desire to run a larger numbe^ of trains. The N. C. & St. L.. contemplates equip ping thirty-two miles of single track with the automatic semaphore signal. Th e Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul is asking estimates on sixty miles of double track work and the Chicago, Rock Island & Pa cific expects to put in these signals at an early day on certain parts of double track divisions. Several other roads have the matter up with the signal companies and are reported as intending to equip a large mileage. This action shows a growing appreciation of the reliability and Annual Sale of Towels This event is at hand. There is the usual story of long preparation and search, and the gathering together from every known source of the best values in all kinds of towels. But the story of our success is not the same as usualit is better. These goods will bring us the biggest of all towel sales if we can make their value under- stood.

The greatest objection to the use of the automatic signal has always been that there was no agent on duty at the signal to report a failure to obey the indication given and therefore the englnemen be came careless, and by not obeying an in dication to stop might run into another train standing in the block ahead. That automatic signals should be put in on double-track lines to a greater extent than on single track is to be expected, as in the majority of cases a direct saving in operating expenses is determinable On single-track lines the telegraph operators are needed for the purpose of dispatching, trains and arranging ineet.ing points, and the installation of automatic signals may be expected to increase the cost of opera tion. "The economy of such installations'is derived from the increased protection against collisions, both head and rear, and in the possibility of running a larger num ber of trains in a given direction at the same time., When using the telegraph system of blocking trains on single track, but one train at a time may be safely permitted to occupy a block, while with the track between two stations divided into several short blocks by automatic signals, as many trains may be safely run in a given direction between stations, as there are blocks. It therefore follows that automatic signals, outside of safety considerations, will be of greater, benefit to lines where trains are run in sections close together than if run separately with a long-time interval between. Undoubt edly the recent perfecting of the motor and gas operating mechanisms, whereby it is possible to use semaphore signals in place of those of the disc type, has had much to do with the introduction of the automatic signal, for while the disc sig nal when newly painted and with a good background can be seen almost as well as the semaphore, the latter in giving the 2c 61c 3C 10c 121c 26 16ic A Little Surprise in Silks 45-in.

The maintenance of an oriental traffic official at Chicago under Darius Miller of the Burlington is not pleasing to the freight men of the Northern Pacific and the Great Northern. One twin city official says: "It does not matter who rounds up the business'in the east, the oriental agent m Chicago sends it over the road he pleases from here west. Great Northern freight men in the east, may corral a shipment which is delivered to the Burlington at Chicago, but the oriental agent is as likely to route It over the Northern Pacific from here as over the Great Northern. "I know personally that such is the case. I know of shipments secured by Northern Pacific men in the east given to the Great Northern here for the western haul, and vice versa. The oriental agent divides the business." ..-,.- 38c FAST TRAIN ON OMAHA It Will Rival Time of New Milwaukee Train to Chicago. The breaking of the thirteen and one half hour rule for passenger trains with sleeping cars between Minneapolis and Chicago by the Milwaukee road is to be followed up by the Omaha, which is pre paring to put on a short time train. The arrival of the long time limited trains as given in the records of the St. Paul Union station for fourteen successive days in February, shows that even the long time trains had some difficulty in ar riving on the dot.

BRITON What the Two Have Done In" Railroad Development. ""London, March'9.The report of Colonel A. N. York, inspecting Officer of railways, on his recent official investigation of American railways, consists mainly of a comparison of the systems of the United States and Great Britain. Treating of roadbed^ and tracks, Colonel York, after remarking upon certain points of superi ority in'the United States, concludes that, on the whole, the British roadbeds and tracks are superior both as regards sta bility and cost of maintenance. He points out that the comparatively small number of bridge's used by American railroads results in no restriction as to the size- of rolling stock, but exactly contrary condi tions prevail iri Great Britain, putting be yond hope the adoption of locomotives and cars of the American size in Britain. The report recommends the American wheel for freight cars. Colonel York, condemns the imperfections of the American sig naling systems The automatic system, he says, is in no wise perfect, while the variety of systems conduces to accidents. He contends that Great Britain is far ahead DRY GOODS CO * . " ' 27-in.

He considers that London has much to learn about urban traffic from New York and Boston. Regarding the personnel of American railroad employes, Colonel York declares that their superiority is unques tionable, because the men, in the first place, are picked for their physique and ability, while promotion is due solely to merit, thereby opening equal chances for every" employe. 3c 83c 8sc A New Line in Michigan. Special to The Journal. Menominee, Mich., March 9.A project to build a branch railroad through Mari nette county for the purpose of opening up a vast body of timber in the eastern.part of the county and in Forest county, is being pushed. , The new. line will be from fifteen to thirty miles long and will be a branch of the Dunbar & Wausaukee road. The survey has been completed. In these counties are vast bodies of tim ber owned by Sawyer & Goodman, the Marinette Lumber company and other local concerns. It is estimated that there are several hundred million feet of pine and hardwood in two of the townships. In Forest county there are millions of feet of timber which the extension of the line would mean would be made tributary to Menominee and Marinette and would pro long the life of the local mills for several years, and also open possibilities in the hardwood line for industries of all kinds. The Milwaukee railway will make the'ex tension if it is made.

Chicago, March 9.To residents in the territory served by the Burlington lines west of the Mississippi river the an nouncement that there will be a new branch constructed from Sioux City, Iowa, to Ashland, Neb., is considered im - portant. This link, about 100 miles long, will couple at an important point, the Great Northern and the Burlington seg ments of the Hill system. While the Burlington reaches the Great Northern with lines farther-'to the northwest and in the extreme northeastern part of the-ter ritory served by these roads, there has been a gap along the middle Missouri river valley. That gap will be filled by the proposed branch. ' Station to Be Enlarged. Special to Th'e Journal.
