Expert Recently Said Here
That It Is Nearly Equal
An expert who recently visited the
city to examine the tianta Ke'a big
tie .preserving plant, said In regard
to the tie timber storage:
"Experts In -wood preservation In
this and other countries have discov
ered that the beech makes a most
lasting and durable cross-tie, when
properly treated. In the search for
railroad tie timber to fill the wide
caps made by the dwindling supply
of white oak, lumber manufacturers
have been compelled to turn to
many woods which were once con
sidered Inferior, hut which under
creosote or other chemical treatment
have 'been found to furnish excellent
substitutes for the oak.
"Railroad builders have rejected
beech heretofore because It decays
quickly In damp places. They want
ed oak, and when that could not be
had they took other decay-resisting
woods, but In most cases they did
not consider beech at any price, ex
cept as a temporary makeshift. Tet
It has been proved by actual tests
of long duration that a beech tie may
be riven a preservative treatment
which will make it outlast white
oak. It is possible to turn this
knowledge to great practical use In
relieving the enormous demand up
on the limited supply of good tie
Grows in Profusion.
"The beech is found widely dis
tributed throughout the eastern por
tion of the United States, reaching
its beat development in the basin of
the lower Ohio river, and on the
dope of the Allegheny mountains.
It grows to an average height of 70
to to feet, but occasionally trees of
120 feet in height are found. The
diameter of mature trees Is often
three or four feet. In the forest, the
beech forma a comparatively slen
der stem clear of branches for more
than half Its length. The wood Is
x hard, strong, tough, and very close
Trained. Its use is largely limited to
the manufacture of chairs, shoe lasts
plane-storks, handles, and for fuel.
Wliite Oak the Best.
The Ideal timber used for cross
ties is white oak. This combines all
of the good qualities of the beech
and in addition is very durable.
Consequently it has been widely em
ployed by the railroads for tie pur
poses. It not only is an excellent
wood for ties but is widely used in
ship building, for construction, and
In cooperage, the manufacture of
carriages, agricultural implements,
the interior finish of houses, and for
furniture. On account of its exten
sive use the supply has been greatly
reduced, and a great many railroads
u-e now forced to pay almost pro
hibitive .prices for white oak ties or
to substitute other and cheaper
woods to replace the white oak ties
rapidly disappearing from their
linea Michigan cedar or arborvitae
has been extensively used to take the
place of white oak."

MEXICAN COAST IXNE,
Mexico City. Mex., Oct. 24. The
railroads which E. H. Harrlman and
associates are building down the Pa
cific slope of iliexlco has more cos
mopolitan, or world-wide features,
tn its construction than any railroad
In the world, it is said. The ties for
the road are being brought from Ja
pan; the steel rails come from. Bll
toa. Spain, and from Belgium; the
coal that is used in the locomotives
is brought all the way from Aus
tralia; the grading machinery Is
from Germany, and the laborers
have been imported in ship loads
from 'Russia, Japan and China. These
foreigners work side by side with
Taqui Indians in the construction of
Comparatively little of the mater
ial used in the construction of this
riew road has been brought from
the United States. The whole world
has been searched over in an effort
to find the cheapest country and
place In which to buy the various
kinds of material necessary for the
construction of the line, and it is al
ways purchased where it can be had
eU tha lowest cost.
The distance from Guaymas to
(Guadalajara, or to Orendatn, a point
twenty-five miles west of Guadala
jara, where the new road will con
nect with the Mexican Central, is
about 860 miles. It la understood,
however, that It is planned to ex
tend the road all the way down the
i-acuio coast to the Isthmus of Te
huantepec, a total distance of about
0.600 miles. It will connect with
the National Tehuantepec line on
the Isthmus of Tehuantepec. It is
claimed that the completed portion
is tne best cunt road in Mexico.

MEXICAN MVES SHORT
ON PASSENGER EQUIPMENT,
'Mexico City, Mex., Oct. 24. The
Question of cars is again occupying
the attention of railway officials, as
the ears now being constructed in
the United Btates and the various
hops of the republic will be total
ly inadequate to handle the passeng
er. This is not only on account of
the Increased traveling, but on ac
cwnt of abollnhlrMf seron!-claw
people who formerly rode in second-
class coaches will now be first-class
passengers, preferring the Increase
In cost of fhe discomforts of riding
with the third-class passengers.
When the order was issued by the
railroads concerning the change they
were not in a condition, from a
standpoint of car surplus, to carry
those who traveled first class, not to
speak of the extra burden which the
change brought about. The result
Is that the cars on the various roads
are now overcrowded, and In many
cases numbers of passengers who
are entitled to seats are compelled
