K BROUGHT $34,650 GREATEST SALE OP HEREFORDS IX TUIS COUATIIY. AUCTION OF CROSS HERD K. B. ARMOVR PAYS $2.U50 FOR BEAU HEIL'S MAID. Thl I tlie lilBlient Price Eut 1'nld for a. Hereford Cow In. tlie United Slaton nle Vim it Oreut Snccrmi TIironRlioat. The most notable cattle sale ever held In the sale paUIIon at the Kansas City Mock yardb 'was that held yesterday, when 101 head of the famous Cross herd of Here fords, Including the show herd of Sunny Slope farm, were sold at auction. Tho nalo was notable in the total receipts, the cattle selling .for a total of $3I.CM. It was notablcMn that a cow was sold for the highest price ever realized for a Hereford in this country or for a cow of any other breed since the high prices shortly fol lowing the civil war. It was notable in that it broke the record at the Kansas City le pavilion for prices either for cows or bulls. , ' In opening the sale. Colonel Aoods, the auctioneer, spoke feelingly of the late Banker Cros, who was so popular with Hereford breeders. Mrs. Cross was present through the sale nnd showed great familiarity with each in dividual animal brought out. A noel feat ure of the sale was that the clerk was a woman, the llrst instance of the kind at a Bale In Kansas City. Mr. Cross stenog rapher acted as clerk. She waq as fa miliar with the breeding of the cattle as was Mr. Cross himself. The Fensational cent of the day was the purchase by K. B. Armour, of Kansas Citv! of Beau Real's Maid, for J2.23?. the highest price ever paid for a Hereford cow. Beau Real's Maid has taken prizes over all cows of beef breeds many times and is un doubtedly the finest individual beef cow in the world to-day. The bidding started at .! nH n,nl lin In IlITTinR Of iJi tO SlW. until 11.800 was reached. Here it hung for a time and then suddenly soared again to $2,130. at which price the beautiful creature was knocked down to Mr. Armour. Thomas Clark, of Buckner. 111., was a strong bid der for the animal and after she had been sold at the highest price ever known, both Mr. Armour and Mr. Clark were warmly cheered by the crowd. Besides this, several other animals brought ery his prices and the 104 head sold averaged $333 1. each. This Is a higher average than has been attained nt any sale at the pavilion for some time. Tho highest price at which an individual ever sold at the pavilion before was Il.IuO. which was brought by Heslod jOth. a Here ford bull, at the Funkhouser sale a few weeks ago. The purchaser was J. M. Cur ult of &niaVcity. The highest price ever realized for a cow at a pavilion tale heretofore was J1.023. which an imported cow Queen's Heifer, brought at K. B. Ar mour's sale. She was bought by Scott & Whitman, of Ruble. Kas. Several years ago, in the fat stock show fiavs of 1SS4. Gudgell & Simpson sold twenty l,ull at an average of J1TC23. The same e-ir James A. Funkhouser sold eleven 'bulls at an average of 4"3C: and twenty n"ne cSwsat an average of JI'O.63. But not Individual sold as high as come of jes- tevtaMr Cross' sale at Emporia last March twenty-six imported bulls brought an av erage of J7K53. and twinty-lx home-bred bulfs an average of NSS CRW,1 fiold at an average of J-Ii.60.

Will Spend 9200,000 In Improvement Plann Are Now Beinir Pre pared far (be 'Work. 1a. F. Goodale. of St. Joseph, chief en gineer of the Burlington Route, is busily engaged preparing plans and specifications for improvements in the sv stem's termi nals in Kansas City, which will probably cost at least $200,000 but will put the road in much better shape than heretofore. As is well known, the Burlington sys tem comes into Kansas, City over two of its own Jines the Hannibal c St. .Jobcph railroad and the Kansas City, St. Joseph & Council Bluffs road. "While both roads are Burlington properties, and are operated under the general management of that sjhtem. they have alwajs maintained here two sets of yards, two round houses, two freight depots, etc. Now this Is all to be consolidated, and it is upon this work that Chief Engineer Goodale is emplojed draw ing plans. The plans contemplate consolidating the terminals of the Hannibal & St. Joseph and the Kansas City, St. Joseph & Coun cil Bluff . The present Hannibal jards will be used for passenger and repair tracks, while the new jards of the Kan sas City, St. Joseph & Council Bluffs, will be greatly enlarged and improved to nccommodate all of the freight traffic of both lines. An immense freight depot, the largest in the city, and SO0 feet long, will he built at Twelfth and Mulberry streets and the freight platform will ctend 60u feet bevond this, thus giving a total of 1.4C0 feet over a quarter of a mile of Moor space for the handling of freight. The freight depot will be but one story hlt-h, except a portion at one end, which will be two stories, the upper floor to ac commodate the offices. The two round houses now in use will be torn down and a new one built, to hold more engines than both of the present one, but with every thing about it of the most modern tvpe. ASSUMING NiwPR0P0RTI0NS. Improvements nt the Union Depot Pant Appronchlnc Completion Some Tvew Feature. The executive offices of the Union Depot Company were changed jesterday to the new rooms near the middle of the build ing on the second floor, west of what will be the ticket office waiting room. A bal cony from Superintendent Sanford's olP.ce and Baggagemaater Cpdegraff's office ovei Iooks the waiting room and arcade 40 feet long. The work of retiling the floors has b. gun. One of the improvements in connec tion with remodeling the depot, nearly completed, is the diivewav 100 feet long on the Union avenue front, over which will be a spacious open balconv thirty fet wide. Settees and chairs will be placed on the balcony for tho convenience of pat rons. The waiting room space of the re modeled depot will es-ceed that of the Union station at St. Louis.

The educational classes of the association are doing good work. The clas in Span ish is. doing especially well, and there is room for a few more who wish to take this course, which will undoubtedly prove or service in tne luiuru. Conductor Snln Laid Off. Charlj- Sain, who has been a passenger conductor on tho Hannibal & St. Joseph road for half n dozen jears. and has been one of the most popular men In the serv ice of that company, has been let out bj the company. AVhile the notice from the companj" was a dismissal, his friends claim he will almost certalnlv be reinstated f-oon. The trouble occurred December 4, when he put a mar. off the train near Clarence. The man had .1 tup pass that had expired, which vi as refused. He objected to pajirg his fare to the next regular station, claim ing he must be let oft at the lirt flag station. Conductor Sain had one opinion and the passenger another and the pas senger claimed he was nut off between stations and suffered linanclallv because of being thus prevented from keeping a business engagement.

The greater part of the sei-sion of he board of police comm!-ioners jtsterday afternoon was occupied in listening to the complaints filed against certain members, of the force. Detective George Brjant and Officers Tim Kennedy. James M. Orford, AY. S. Murphy and Park Policeman Samuel Smith were on the carpet. All of the men were exonerated with the exception of Smith, the cae against him being con tinued until ne.t 'Wednesday. Charges of conduct unbecoming an of ficer were made by Mrs. Jennie Ixvse against Detective Brvant. About siK weeks ago Mr. Lowe was arrested on .1 charge of robbing an ex-soldier named Clnrles Reed. Detective Brvant was detailed rn the case and he recovered from Mr;-. I.owe 322 of the amount of money it is alleged was stolen from Reed. A few da.vs ago Sirs. I.owe filed charges with the board against Bryant, alleging that at the time of her arrest the officer made a proposi tion to secure her release if she would pav him the sum of ?20. These charges fell flat whtn investigated by the board jes terday. There was absolutely nothing in them and the board promptly exonerated Detective Brjant. Officer Tim Kennedy was before the board to answer to a charge of drunken ness. It had been charged that Kennedy appeared in police court last Saturday morning under the influence of liquor. There was nn ncr-on nresent to ure-w the charges before tho board. Sergeants New ell and casKev anil a nan uozen unmns tpstineil th.-.t ICennedv was not Intoxicated and had not even been drinking.

Orford was in the em plov of the Williamson Laundry Company for'several months, prior to his appointment as a patrolman. When he quit AVillltm son's emplov he was indebted to him in the sum of J1"A 'Williamson made chaige to tho effect that Orford had defrauded him out of that amount of money, so the officer claimed. The trouble between Wil liamson and Orford dates back nearly three jears. Orford admitted jesterdny thit the debt is an honest one and that he would have paid it long ago had not Williamson nrpnw.l him of beintr an embezzUr. In asmuch as the dealings between William son nnd Orford occurred more than two j ears, prior to the latter's appointment to a position on the forre. the board declined to consider the charges. Agnes T. Bevington of X Hast Seventh street, failed to appear to prosecute the charges she had previously filed against Officer W. S. Murphv for conduct unbe coming a policeman. She charged him with having cursed and abused her. There was nothing in the charges and they were promptly dismissed by the board. Amos H. Kagy filed charges against Park Policeman Sam Smith some time ago for conduct unbecoming an officer. The case was called for tho third time jesterday and again continued until next Wednesday. Mi. Kagv was notified to appear at that time or the charges will be dismissed. PrntcHt Against n hnlnnn.
