Special Meotinir. To-Iay to
William Fulkerson, chairman of tho
Board of County Commissioners of Calhoun
County, has called a special meeting of that
organization, which will conene at Har
din to-day for the purpose of considering
tho question of granting a franchise to tho
Qulncy and Southeastern Electric Railway
Company. The meeting will be held in the
office of County Clerk Charles Flamm. At
the meeting representatives of the com
pany will present a petition for n fran
chise to equip and operate an electric rail
way along the public roads of the couiity
for a period of twenty years.
At present Calhoun County had no rail
road nor telegraph olilce, and the present
company is the first to seek a franchise
to construct a railway In that section of
Illinois known a the "Kingdom or Cal
houn." For many jears the residents, have
offered Inducements of moro or lesti value
to railroads to build lines into their county,
but heretofore the roads have not given the
matter serious consideration on account of
the necessity of bridging both the Hlinoin
and Missouri Rivers In constructing such

County from the north, connecting the
towns of Uarrs", Hardin, Rushvllle and

consequence would have to be spanned by

Was reached at Hardin. The latter place
however, according to the best Information
obtainable, will be the southern terminus
of the road for some pionths. with a strong
probability then of crossing the Illinois and
Sinning south through Jersv and Madison
counties for St. Louis.

INTERRUPTION IN GERMAN.
Hohenzollern Tries to Extend In
vitation to Vessel Which Is
Bidding Cood-By to Depart
New York. Feb. 16 There was a three
cornered conversation by wireless teleg
raphy. In two languages. In the North
River jesterday. While George Kroncke.
the wireless telegraph operator on board
the Kaiser Wilhelm der Grose, was talk
ing to the departing steamship I.ucania.
the operator of the wireless telegraph out
fit on board the Imperial yacht Hohenzol
Icrn joined in the tonv ersatlon, the Ger
man messages causing a veritable confu
sion of tongues until matters were
The Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse was ly
ing at her pier at the foot of West Twelfth
street, while the Lueania left the pier be
low to start on her voyage to Liverpool.
The Imperial yacht lay in her dock In Ho
boken, almost opposite the big German
"We pjo off the Battery. Everything do
ing well." was the first message received
by Mr. Kroncke from Mr. Hepworth. the
operator aboard the I.ucania. Then after j.
lull of several minutes came the words:
"We are off Staten Island. I can see the
cruisers of the United States Navy."
Mr. Hepworth then began telling the op
erator aboard the German steamship that
he was going to try to break the wireless
telegraph record, made by the steamship
Philadelphia, which talked to the Lizard
while l.Ti) miles distant. Strange and ob
scure words began at this time to creep
Into the messages.
Mr. Kroncke shut off the connection and
turned It on again, but all he could make
out was several German phrases, among
which the words-, "Sehe.i sic?" and "vler
I'hi" were invariably repeated. Then there
came it complaint from the Lucanla:
"What are vou talking about, anyhow?
I can't speak German."
"Who is this?" was the message flashed
out to the wind by the operator aboard the
"Tho yacht Hohenzollern," was the reply,
"All right, Hohenzollern, keep quiet a
moment." replied Mr. Kroncke. He con
tinued to talk with the Lucanla. whoso
mecsageb grew weaker and weaker.
"We're out at sea. now." said the opera
tor of the I.ucania. "I can scarcely make
vou nut. I'm hungry and going to get din
ner, so I'll say good-by."
"Good-by. Bon voyage." was Fent back,
and then the conversation ceased.
Mr. Kroncke then communicated with the
Imperial vaclit and learned that the opera
tor on the latter hail been trying to send
to him the Invitation In German: "Come
over to ee me at 1 o'clock."
