Hie reorganization committee of the Oregon Short Line and Utah Northern railroad, were in Sho shone Wednesday last. In the par ty was Samuel Carr, chairman of the reorganization committee of the Oregon Short Line and Utah North ern, and S. II. H. Clark, Oliver Ames, Henry G. Nickols and T. j Jefferson Coolidge, of the Union Pacific. It is also stated that Gen eral Manager Ed. Dickinson and other oliicials of the operating de partment are with the party. The trip includes Salt Luk . Portland, Seattle, Tacoma, and return via Ogden, the whole trip consuming about three weeks. While in Oma ha, Ames w as quoted in the Woild Herald in the following important words of deep local interest: We are on a general tour of inspection ol the Union Pacific, said Mr. /Unes 'Wc will go to Salt Lake, Portland, and other western cities, and also clown to San Francisco There is virtually on change in Union Pacfic affaire. We are waiting for con gress. It is true that the reorgani zation committee has objected to the Hepburn amendment to the biil in congress which call for the opening of the various gateways of the Union Pacific.

I believe that the Union Pacific will virtually con trol the road. I think that the general manager will be Mr. Ban croft, at present general superin tendent of the Mountain division of the Union Pacific. He is the most desirable man I believe to all parties. Mr. Coolkige in reply to a question as to the changesfor the separation of the Oregon .Short Line from the Union Pacific, said. that such a move would undoubt edly be made, but be was unpre pared to say whether or not mat ters were in readiness font yet while. It was his opinion that the management of the Short Line af i ter tl^e segregation had been effect ed, certainly would wish to work harntoniously with the Union Pa cific interests, and as far as the oparation of the road was concern ed it would oe practically as though it was a member of the old Union Pacific system.

And it came to pass, in the days °f Patsy Boliver, the scribe, that a certain farmer had a son; that worketh not much, but sitteth in the shade with the hired girl, And " 60 ha PPened that the sire wa f ed ™ th > and he gathered un ' to hiaîSeh a bed slat and belabored his son much, who after the chas tizement, rose up and demanded of his father, the two bits he had promised him if he would eat less and do more work. And he went himself away into a far land, and sqaudered the sheck *cs which his father had given un— to him, buying tangle foot lor the boys. Aud when he found that he was broke, he said, I will arise and go a unto my father, And when he saw his father afar off; cried unto him, father me let return to the bosom of thy family,, that I may live on cold Johnny' cake that reposeth within thy swill. ub. And it came to pass that he ried the hired girl, had thirteen children, and they lived with the old man to the end of his days. And his last days than the first. mar • were worse • x. 4. 2.
