CUT BIG MELON FOB EMPLOYES Over a Million and a Quarter Men May Get $81,000,000 Increase By Associated Press. > .• ,. :.;■ CHICAGO, Nov. 16.— Record-Her ald says: The railroads of the entire country stand ready to accept the standard of wages set by the Pennsylvania and to grant their employes an Increase of 10 per cent In lieu of other demands. . The "melon" which the railroads are willing to cut and to distribute among more than 1,296,000 employes would ag gregate between $81,000,000 and $82,000, 00 annually. This sum the roads are ready to give the large army of em ployes, providing the latter will accept It and cease for the time being any further demands for increases in all branches of the railway service. | Several railway magnates have al ready taken action and have decided to grant the increase if It .be arranged | amicably -with employes. The magnitude of the concession may be understood when it is stated that it will amount to a dividend of nearly 1.4 per cent on the capital stock of the entire railway systems of the country j and to nearly 37 per cent in the annual dividends paid on that stock In 1905. There has not been concerted action on the part of the railroads, but the • question of the increase in wages has been the subject of discussion In many meetings which have been held among . the western executive officials at Chi cago and the eastern men at New York.

Hereaf ter there is to be no discrimination in the assistance furnished shippers to load and unload freight cars. The Hep purn law forbids any suggestions of fa voritism. . ■ ■ . "> ' • ' This is the announcement made by Edward Chambers of the Santa Fe. It used to bo the custom for railroad com panies to assist with its own men in i unloading: cars at private warehouses on spur tracks. ' The ; shippers must now provide all their own freight handlers, so that the big shipper with the private track to his warehouse will have to pay just the same as the little shipper who gets his freight out of the car into a wagon. And if the shippers do not unload with in the specified time the railroad will do the unloading and charge for it at the uniform rate of 20 cents a ton.

KEEN RIVALRY IS DISPLAYED Roads Having Through Lines Make Competition Lively Great rivalry has recently sprung up among the lines catering to travel des tined to Mexican points. The Gould lines in connection with the International & Great Northern and the. Mexican National are operating through Bervlce from si. Louis to Mexico City, by way of Ban Antonio. The "Knty" operates through service from Kiuisiis City by way of San An tonio, ms does also the Bant* Pc between Chicago and Mexico City. These, With the Southern Pacific and International & Great Northern,' give San Antonio four through lines to Mexico. ' The Hock Island has recently an nounced through service from Chicago, Kansas City and St. Louis by way of El Paso and the Mexican Central. In railroad circles it is anticipated that considerable rivalry will result, and this competition has already be come keen. It is now reported that the San An tonio & Aransas Pass will establish a service by way of Alice and Laredo to Old Mexico in connection with the Hous ton, East & West Texas and the Cotton Bell to St. Louis. This would be a very short route, and one that has never been presented as catering to through service, but, with proper arrangement of schedules, could easily compete with any other line, as distance Is in its fa vor.

TOKIO, Nov. 16.— An extraordinary story is current here of bets being laid in -Yokohama against the successful launching of the battleship Satsuma at Yokosuka yesterday and of attempts to make the launching a failure. About $500,000 is Bald to have been wagered at odds of 7 to 3 against the successful floating of the warship, and workmen, formerly of Yokohama, are reported to have been bribed to place Impedimenta in the slip. The detection of these the day before the launching, it is reported, led to the discovery that a workman had actually been arrested, but his exam ination with a view of 'ascertaining whether he was connected with the al leged betting syndicate has thus far been inconclusive. » « • » Plan Naval Demonstration i.'ll'li I'IVSS.

TWICE MARRIED; TWICE DIVORCED HUSBAND MAKES GENEROUS OFFER % Agrees to Pay Woman Who Is Seeking Separation from Him Attorney's Fees and $50 Per Month for Life : In a petition for temporary alimony argued yesterday morning before Judge Conrey of department five of the su perior court, In the divorce proceedings of Ella B. Hunt against William Hunt, a remarkable story of marital difficul ties was told, and when the case com up for trial It is expected that a close contest will result. i 1 For, according to the evidence, the present suit filed by Mrs. Hunt is the second petition for divorce which she has brought against her husband, the first having been successful, and short ly thereafter followed by a second mar riage. The couple were married in Los An geles several years ago, the groom be ing somewhat older , than the bride. Incidentally Hunt hud been married before and had several children by, his first marriage. .' .'■■''■ Following the wedding Hunt and his bride went, to Catallna on their honey moon. Hunt owned ■•< tine piece of property there and conducted a curio establishment. Says Husband Was Cruel Their married life progressed pleas antly for a while and then came trouble and the couple separated, she wile charging her husband with cruelty. A long list of allegations was murlo at the trial of the divorce in San Fran cisco, and Hunt Immediately divided his property, giving his wife practically all his holdings, including many promis sory notes, and retaining for himself the lot at Avalon. ' ■■•;.>': ! At that time the lot was worth very little, and the wife was perfectly satis- II I fled with her share of the property and a decree of divorce, But the money dl.l not last long, and according to Hunt's story Ills wife soon let him know that She had spent her share of the prop erty and that she was in actual need. Then Hunt again fell in love with his wife. in spite of all the troubles, they had undergone, and he gently woed and J won her a second time. | For a second time he led his wife to the altar and they were married. For a second time the then retired curio deal- II I er and his wife spent their honeymoon at Catullna Island and viewed his prop erty, now worth 128,000. ! Again trouble came to the household, and the husband Is now alleged to have I deserted. Before the wife for the sec ond time filed divorce proceedings she placed a homestead claim on the Culii llna property, claiming .half of that. Not knowing exactly what was hap i pening to him, Hunt yesterday made a most generous offer In court, to the effect that If the wife would lift the homestead claim he would sell the prop erty and pay her $250 attorney's fee* and settle i'M a .month upon her for the rest of her life. i The offer was appreciated by Judge Conrey, who ordered that i Hunt carry out his promise only fifteen days after lie homestead claim was titled by Mr*.

Like the surprised sportsman who brought down two qual with one shot, the doctor, who is the head of a sanitarium and hospital at Jamaica, advertised for a head nurse and got a bride. Last June Dr. Kilmer's head nurse was his cousin, Miss E. M. Kilmer. In handling a cancerous patient she con tracted septicaemia and died June 8. Dr. Kilmer took the notice of her death to a Brooklyn newspaper for publica tion. Later on he inserted an adver tisement In The World for a successor to Miss Kilmer. From some ninety re plies he selected that of Miss Ilda J. Judd and promptly established her at the sanitarium as head nurse. On Friday evening Miss Judd became the wife of Dec Kilmer. "Yes," said the happy doctor yester day, "it's quite a little romance, isn't it?
