THE NEWS OF THE RAILROADS.
(Southern California New Table
in Effect Today.
A. Pblllips, the Excursion Agent,
Reports on Tourist Traffic.
Sa K»w I.laa or Road to Tacoma and
■eattla — Chans;.* In the Par.
aonn.l nf tha Santa Fa
System.
The Sunset Limited, westward bound,
arrived in town last evening at 8:10 and
leit for Ban Franoisco at 6:40.
Today the new time table oi the South
am California road goes inlo effect.
This table has been gotten out in neat
shape and is to be "easily underslanded
of the people." It fills a long felt want
for while the old time table answered
admirably as a puzzle to while away an
idle live minutes at the depot, it served
no useful purpose in conveying intelli
gence of tbe arrival or departure of trains
to the average traveler.
STEADY INFLUX OP BETTLEItS.
Mr. A. Phillips, who has built up a
reputation throughout tbe west by
means of his excursion parties, returned
yesterday from an extensive trip through
the eastern states. He is a firm be
liever in tha southern counties of
California and talked in an interesting
mauner yesterday regarding tbe out
look during the coming winter for pas
senger traffic.
"The number of passengers brought
west last year," he remarked, "was in
the aggregate larger than this year, but
then the world's fair at Chicago and the
midwinter fair at San Francisco more
tbaa accounted for tbe difference. The
outlook just vow is in every way en
couraging and there is every reason to
believe the coming season will be a good
one for passenger traffic. A very large
percentage of the people coming west
now are bona fide settlers, having a lit
tle money and are prepared to engage in
agricultural or horticultural pursuits.
The productiveness of Southern Cali
fornia is being made known throughout
tbe couutry districts of the east and
many of the drawbacks we bad to con
tend against in the past no longer ob
tain."
"A year or two baok we not unfre
queutly had to carry back men, some
time) with families, who had made a
iai ore, and of course returned to their
irien » to paint in livid colors tbe draw
backs to a settler's lite in California.
Tbess kickers are all dead or else gone
hauk east, for we are never called upon
to carry one, A small percentage ol
new arrival* make their way north
through having relatives or friende who
have already settled there, out the large
bu'k of the incomers look around and
permanently settle in Southern Cali
fornia.
''One of tbe beat things tbe fruit grow
ers have ever done bee been tbe adop
tion of co-operation tactics in marketing
their produce. These methods are
laigsly responsible for tbe markets that

the true solution of tbe difficulties at

tuinimriM of expense.
"Business is picking up in the east,"
said Mr. I'billips, in concluding, "but it
is no exaggeration to say that so far as
businesß prosperity is concerned Los
Angeles hi ale the procession."
MIDLAND PACIFIC RAILROAD.
Arrangements have been completed
by which work on tbe above road will
be commeuoed without fail next spring.
It will run irom Bioux Falls, 8. D., to
Seattle aud Tacoma, Wash., a distance
of about 1600 miles. Canadian and for
eign capital has been enlisted in tbe
scbems and no furtner difficulty is anti
cipated so far as tbe financial arrange,
merits are concerned.
The first section of the road from
Sioux Falls to the coal fields of Wyom
ing, about 400 miles, will be built in tbe
spring of 1895. The second section from
the eastern boundary line ol Wyoming
to tbe Yellowetone nark wdl be com
pleted during tbe season of I89(i. and in
connection with the Illinois Central air
line will afford a route 200 miles shorter
than any other between Chicago and
the National park. The third section,
which is expected to follow the second
section immediately, is called the Idaho
division and starts at tht western line of
the Rockies. The fourth section, the
Washington division, will pass through
tbe center of tbe Btate and have termi
nals at both Tacoma and Seattle.
Five eastern roads converge at Sioux
Falls, and it is in consequence a very
.prosperous oity. It is the distributing
center for all the eastern and southern
parts of the state, Jouthwest Minnesota
md Northwestern lowa.
Aotive work will be begun June 1,1895,

8.36, followed by Norway with a rate of
8 cents.

TWO GOOD FORTUNE TELLERS.
But One of ThPiu Waa Rather Too Good
For the Other.
"That is a suro sign of death," said an
elderly lady, who affrctcd extreme girlish
noss, addressing n young man and his
wife—a potlte brunette, by tho way—as
they woro standing near tho south en
trance of tho Koldlors' home. Tho remark
was occasioned by hearing a passing horse
utter a mournful neigh. Tho young man
replied that ho thought tho only sure sign
of dcatli was tho prosonoo of crape on a
doorknob. "I nover knew it to fall," said
the elderly party, "and I have been a clair
voyant for nearly 10 yoars."
Sho then informed tho young man and
his wife, whom sho evidently mistook for
brother and sister, that her place of busi
ness was on Princeton street. ''Now, you
bayou happy futuro before you," she said
to bun, "You will marry a tall, light
haired girl with lots of money." Tho
young man turned to his wlfo and winked
tho othor oyo.
"Your sister hero," shocontinued, "will
havo lots of trouble before sho marries,
but sho nui6t be brave, and all will be
well. Now, como down to my house, and
I will tell you many things of most vital
Importance concerning both your futures."
"You certainly ui-o wonderful," said the
young man, "hut I, too, am a fortuno
teller."
"You I"'
"Yob; lean tell any ono's fortune by
morcly looking at tho palms of t heir hands.
Give mo your hand, aud I'll show you."
He took her hand and scrutinized it
closely, remarking about certain linos and
tho Interpretation of them. "Lots of trou
ble hero—and you are married—yes, a dark
man. You expect lots of money some
day." Then he stopped, and looking her
squarely in the face said: "I find a line
hero that I hesitate to tell you about. You
might be offended if I told you what it
meant."
"No; tell mo what It means," said she,
her curiosity aroused.
"Well," said he, "if you are sure you
will not be angry, I'll tell you. This line
—the one near the Index finger—says that
fou are much given to the habit of lying,

CHILD MARRIAGE IN INDIA.
(Single Life For Man or Woman Forbidden
by the Hindoo Religion.
The Brahman has to got his daughter
married before she attains puberty. This
custom has crept into religion. The Hin
doo religion striotly forbids single life for
woman or man. Especially must the wom
an be married; hence there are no old
maids In India. Sometimes ono may meet
an old, ''cranky" bachelor, who bos re
mained unmarried because ho was too
poor to marry or because his character
was not good, but cvon these axe seldom
found excopt in tho lower olasses. If a
man is not married at tho latest by his
twenty-fifth year, his repntatlon suffers.
It is a belief t hat those who havo a son go
to heaven, when the son, after tho death
of his parents, performs the spiritual rites.
However this may be, whether they go to
heaven or not, this severo rule tends to a
strict cult nation of home life.
Owing to this rule, if a Brahman's
daughter attains puberty before marriage,
the father is disgraced. He loses his caste,
and no ono will marry tho girl. Thus,
when a poor man has more than one
daughter, it is a misfortune for him. The
Hindoo father himself has to find out a
suitable husband for his daughter, so he
goes to a gentleman who has a son. He
first makes inquiries about the family, the
property, tho health and education of the
boy. Then ho asks tho father of tho boy
to marry his son to his daughter. Tho fa
ther of the boy asks for dowry, aud the
amount of this is fixed according to the
moans of tho man who asks for it and not
of the man who gives it—that is to say, if
the father of the boy is very rich, he asks
thousands of dollars.
Henoe tho Hindoo father of a girl has to
spend much for tho marriage of his
daughters, for he always wishes to see her
married Into a rich family.—Burnshotam

THE POWER OF THE PRESS.
Dow It Might Be the Highest Terrutrial
Illustration of Omnipotence.
Colonel Pat Donan, the celebrated
correspondent, speaking on the subjoct
of editors of newspapers to a Philadel
phia News man, said:
We speak of England, Franoe, Ger
many, Russia and the United States as
"the great powers," but among all the
powers of earth the press stands oasily
first and greatest. If every journalist
fully appreciated his power and his re
sponsibility and every journal were
known to be absolutely truthful, honest,
fearless and inoorruptiblo beyond the
reaoli of whoediug, bribery or intimida
tion; wearing tho dog collar of no
party, sectiou, sect or fnotion; patriotio
and not partisan, always for the right
and against tho wrong, a union of ail
the newspapers would be the highost
terrestrial illustration of omniscionce
and omnipotence. Such a combination
could overturn any principality, throne
or dominion under heaven, as a herd oi
steers might upset a child's array
of tin soldiers. It could establish nud
maintain any system, cause, creed or
institution tho editors chose to support.
Civilization culminate* in the power
press, and tho bounds of civilization nro
limited by the circulation of tho iluily
papers. There is no civilised speech or
language where their voice is not heard
or their influence is not felt. A few
weeds soaked in bilge water, or a lit! 1 o
calomel rolled in sweetened dough,
With plonty of printora' ink, will ;n;ike
v millionaire of any pauperistic quack
in five years, whether it is tho brains,
hearts, livers, lungs, kidneys or giz
zards of newspaper reading gudgeons
his humbug panacea claims to regener
ate. A few thousand acres of iron, coal
or timber, a fair fiat boat harbor or two
or three intersecting railroads, with
reasonable circumjacent possibilities,
aDd.Ahnndn.nt advertising, will build a
city out of nothingness anywhefe in a
decade. There is no enterprise or busi
ness, benefaotion or villainy that cannot
bo pushed into triumph or driven to
failure by tho newspapers. Great repu
tations nro created by them out cf noth
ing and wrecked by them for amuse
ment. In this country governors, sena
tors and oven presidents are made by
them—often out of material intended
for tinkers and peddlers, baseball play
ers, gamblors, shysters, pickpocket aud
thugs.
COLD AND FISHY.
It Was During: a Hailstorm That the Flsli
Wore Hit.
Colonel Harry Mooro of Rocky Ridge
tella n story which would mako Ananias
blush were it not for tho fact that Mrs.
Mooro corroborates it. "Ono Sunday,"
Harry says, "wo had n very heavy hail
storm. How it did ball, though! The
hailstones were larger than peas, and they
came down with a clatter that was almost
deafening. Well, it was soon over, like
all storms in theso parts, and when the
sun came out I took a walk down to the
lake. When I got there, I was greatly
surprised to find a largo number of appar
ently dead fish floating around on tho sur
face—not littlo ones, but good big ones,
from Bto 10 inches long. When f recov
ered from my surprise, I gathered up a
dozen or two and took them to the house."
"Yes," chimed in Mrs. Moore, "and I
cut them open to sco if they were good tsa
oat, and what do you think—they were
chock full of hailstones! I think that
when tho hailstones started to splash on
tho water the trout though r they were salm
on eggs and jumped for them, and when
they had swallowed enough they froze
still!" "And," Harry then went ou,
' when tho sun had been shining on them
for a short timo they thawed out and
swam away again. In half an hour there
was not a fish to be seen. And say," he
concluded reflectively, "don't you think
you Whatcom fishermen bad better start
out right after a hailstormßeUlag>
