President E. P. Ripley and Third Vice President J. W. Kendrlck of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe, were in the city about twenty minutes this morning between trains while en route east from a trip to the coast. Mr. Ripley was seen by a Citizen representative and consented to an In terview. Mr. Ripley is the chief official of the Santa Fe system and what he says about things concerning railways can be relied on. He stated that he and Mr. Kendrlck had been on a tour of the coast lines and had covered the coast from southern California to as far north as Portland. They found the coast lines doing a nice business and road beds and equipment In good condition. When asked about the Santa Fe cut off and bow work was getting on In its construction, the veteran railroad man said that was all right as far as be was Informed, but be let such things alone when they were in the hands and under the supervision of contractors like the' well known firm of B. Intry Sons. The Harvey curio department and officials of the Santa Fe friendly to ward this attractive and worthy de partment of the Harvey system have been making an effort to have the Cali fornia limited stop at the local station longer than It does now, thus giving the passengers on It, which passengers are the largest buyers In Indian curios, plenty of time to visit the Alvarado and curio rooms. It seems that the officials of the eastern grand division are willing to grant a stop here of more than twenty minutes and that the officials of the coast lines object. They base their objection on the fact that the flyer gets Into San Francisco too late now and that the time between there and Chicago should be shortened Instead of being lengthened. Arthur O. Wells, general manager of the coast lines, accompanied Messrs. Ripley and Kendricas far as Albuquerque, and Is spending the day here. It was surmised that the lay-over proposition had been under discussion by the three officials, and the question was put to Mr. Ripley. He hesitated some before answering but Anally ad mitted that the matter had been fully considered and that the wishes of the west end officials would probably be gratified. The flyer will only stop here twenty minutes as In the past. rlages and the procession started upon the route which had been laid out. It went direct to Marlon square, where about 2,000 school children were as sembled, and the president was con ducted to a platform where ne deliver ed a few words of greeting and encour agement to the children, who respond ed by singing "America" In one mlgav ty chorus. This feature of the pro gram seemed to please the president, for he smiled and Joined heartily la the chorus. From the square the pres ident was driven to the capltol build ing, where he delivered an address. At the conclusion of the address the president was driven to the train again and the party left for Portland. Arrangements at Portland. Portland, Orev May 21.
