RAILROAD NEWS
FROM ALL POINTS.
Speculation as to Changes .to Be
Made on the Frisco-Memphis
Systems.
REDUCTION IN TRAIN SERVICE.
Numerous Resignations Expected
From Employes President
Yoakum to Make Announce
ments New Lines.
Kansas City, Mo, May 28. It Is an
nounced that tho consolidation on July 1 of
tho Kansas City, Fort Scott and Memphis
and the Frisco railways vt ill mark the com
plete effacement of the former road.
The name of the new property will. It is
said, be styled the St. Louis and San Fran
cisco. It was reiterated to-day on good au
thority that the executive offlclals of tho
Frisco system will not be radically changed.
No one Is to be discharged because of tho
removal of tho Memphis general ofllces to
St. Louis, but officials and clerks will bo
permitted to resign. It is announced that
resignations will be In order within a few
days.
The first effective step toward actual con
solidation of tho two system;, will be taken
at once by the abandoning of superfluous
trains next Sunday. The Frisco will take
oft a passenger train between Kansas City
and Springfield, and the Memphis railway
will change the tlmo of Its train to that
point so as to handle Its business. Tho
Memphis will also on that day abandon two
of Its trains on the Clinton division, be
tween Kansas City and Ash Grove at the
same time extending other trains to cover
the gap.
Tho economy In train service cannot be
thoroughly brought about until a connect
ing link between the two roads from Miami
to Afton. I. T.. now building, is completed.
This will be early In July. There is to be
no compeUtlon or useless expense.

close these general offices, and those Mem
phis offlclals who survived tho present tidal
wave will go at once to St. Louis. Mr.

AGAINST THE ALTON.
Summary Proceeding to Collect Aa
aeaamenta Made by County Officials.
REPUBLIC SPECIAL.
Mexico, Mo., May 28. A step was taken
yesterday In the direction of collecting the
assessed county taxes from tho Chicago
and Alton Railway Company for Audrain
Count-. To that end H. L. BIcklcy. Prose
cuting Attorney, with George Robertson,
special counsel for Audrain County, ap
peared before the State Board of Equaliza
tion at Jefferson City. Owing to defects,
said to exist In the assessments, the coun
ties along the line of road have for some
time been unable to collect the entire tax
assessed against the road. The loss to tht;J
county Is about 12,000 annually. The coun
ties of Pike and Callaway were also repre
sented Deiora tne board.
The statutes require that the presidents of
all railroads operating lines in this State
shall make a return to the county clerks
and the State Auditor each year, giving
their property. Including all leased lines
ana all rolling stock used Dy tncm. ine
Chicago and Alton last year refused to
complv with this law, and an effort is be
ing made to have the board ascertain and
assess the property of this company as tho
other roads of tho State are assessed. If
this effort Is successful the Collector will
be enabled to collect the taxes of this com
pany without suit.
COLORADO EXCURSIONS.
Flan to Have a New Joint Asent at
Union Station.
A meeting of representatives of lines In
terested in passenger traffic from Colorado
common points to St. Louis was held yes
terday at Wabash headquarters to .con
sider the advisability of having a joint
agent at Union Station to validate return
portion of excursion tickets. At present
these return-trip tickets must be taken to
the office of James E. Hannegan, secretary
of the Southwestern Mileage Bureau, In the
Union Trust building. It frequently hap
pens that tourists arriving here desire to
make a side trip to some neighboring city,
and upon arrival here at night find tho
Mileage Bureau offices closed, and hence
are compelled to lay over until the next
day before they can have their tickets
vised by the joint agent.
After discussing the situation Mr. II. V.
P. Taylor, who was chairman of the meet
ing, appointed Charles S. Grlce of the Bur
lington and James E. Hanncgan of tho
Mileage Bureau a committee to frame a re
port and submit It to Chairman Eben H.
MacLeod of the Western Passenger Asso
ciation. It Is suggcted that a joint agent
be appointed for Union Station who will
have authority to act for all lines In Inter
est. UP TO PRESIDENT YOAKUM.
He Will Make Announcement ot
Changes on Memphis System.
Kansas City. Mo., May 28. President B.
F. Winchcll of the Kansas City, Fort
Scott and Memphis Railway, said to-day
that the changes in officials that will result
from the Memphis-Frisco consolidation
hav not yet been fully determined. When
they are, he said, the announcement will
be made public by President Yoakum of
the St. Louis and San Francisco Railway
from the general offices at St, Louis. Pres
ident Winchell returned this morning from
a tour of Inspection with President Yoakum
of tho two properties In the South, -and it
was expected that he would make public
something definite regarding the connec
tion. Many clerks In the general ofilces of
the Memphis road here are seeking other
positions in anticipation of being let out
when the offices are moved to St. Louis on
July 1 and merged with those of the Frisco
road.

tin of tho Baltimore and Ohio has been re
quested to arbitrate tho matter not later
than June 3. General Passenger Agent

plaining his position, Mr. Crane said:
'We havo simply taken the normal tariff
fare from Kansas City to Burfalo and added
the rate from Buffalo to New York by way
of the Lackawanna. Now, they propose to
make a through rate that Is greater than
the doublo locals. Wo do not want a dif
ferential, and if the Western lines want
to make time an clement of differentials
and introduce differentials into Western
territory wo are readjato-meet them."

menced his railroad career when 15 years
