Yet, present to all of us, is tho rejoicing which attended the last visit here of my grandfather of blesesd memory.

No amount of endeavor has been able to extract from tbe Union Pacific an assurance that they will have anything to do with the reorganization of the lines of the Western Passenger asso ciation. It is practically hopeless to think of reorganizing the Colorado traffic with tho Union Pacific as an outsider, and particularly as long as it seems to be just now in a mood for reducing rates. There is a growing opinion that it would be best for the lines to wait a short time nnd see what Receiver Egan of the Short Line will do.
