Railroad and In diana Union Traction to Exchange Freight. FORMAL CONTRACT SOON. INTERCHANGE WILL BE MADE AT PERU AND C. C. & L. WILL GET LINE INTO INDIANAPOLIS, AND TRACTION WILL ALSO PROFIT. By an agreement among the officials rl the two companies, arrangements Jiave been made for an interchange of traffic between the Chicago, Cincinnati Vc Louisville and Indiana Union Trac tion; railroad lines at Peru. At pres ent the agreement is but verbal, but it will bo placed in proper contract form. The interchange, applies to an exchange of business between the steam and iraotion roads between Indianapolis and Peru on the traction company's line and between Peru and Chicago on lha route of the steam road. A dispatch from Pent says: Work is now in progress on the. time carda and other details of the plan, and it is supposed affairs will be ready for ihe final signing of contracts within a few week??. The plan of the exchange is for each road to incorporate the time card of the other in its own and to advertise for and take business from one. termi nal or intermediate points to iutenno- Mate points or terminal on the other line. The electric line will do well In the exchange, because it will be able to advertise through tickets and connections to Chicago by way of this city, ajul the steam line, securing ad vantage of the dollar differential cf ihe C, C. - L. Passengers from the south will be lot off at the C. C. & L. station on lower Proadway. and will find the exchange as convenient as pos sible. In the same manner the pas sengers coming in from the C. C. ,V L. stations north of here may take the electric cars south for Indianapolis at the same station. Freight business likewise will be exchanged to some extent, but there will be no exchange of cars between the two lines for the reason that regu lation steam freight and sleeping cars bave wheels too heavy for street paved track s.

RAY ROGERS WAS THE STAR The members of the first term Soph omore English cla.ss, gave three scenes from the Merchant of Venice at the high school yesterday afternoon for the benefit, of the l'reshnien. who will soon take up this play of Shakespeare and study it. for the remainder of the term. At tho end of the play the seniors gath ered in the halls and it. looked like a conspiracy and reminded oner of the good old days of publics ere- one of of the privileges that the two upper classos had. several years ago before the ruling of the school board. The seniors, girls especially, were the bus iest gabblers and they surrounded their president and asked him to appoint a committee to see Prof. Kllabarger and escertain if it would be possible for the seniors to give some kind of a comedy before the school ends. In the production of the Merchant of Venice yesterday. Kay Rogers. who look the part of Shylock, was the star, lie whetted his ugly looking knife and demanded his pound of flesh in a man ner that would make Pen Creel envi ous. Rogers is a good actor and is an excellent comedian. His Iriends at j the high school expect him to make j good if ho enters the theatrical busi i ness.
