At current prices we should consider it
safe to hold It runs through a territory in
which it has comparatively little competi

Its present earnings do not show a large

should be large enough to protect the stock

Common Car Coupler
There will be a general effort to bring
aoout the adoption of a common car coupler
says tho Memphis Commercial There are
about one hundred different kinds in use
and few of them will fit into each other
The action of tho Vanderbilt lines in adopt
ing the plane couplers on freight trains to
the exclusion of the link and pin patterns
will have the effect of hastening the gen
eral adoption of the plane couplet The
Vanderbilt lines have tried the Jauney
Gould and Standard patterns and
their experience shows tho superiority of
couplers of this class So large a percent
age of accidents is referred to coupling
freight cars that a general change to auto
matic couplers is expected to reduce the
percentage of accidents very largely
Advertise the Excursions
John Howard writes to The Gazette
urging that steps be taken to raise a fund
of from 5000 to 15000 to thoroughly ad
vertise tho home seekers excursions an
nounced by tho Missouri Kansas and
Texas and tho St Louis Arkansas and
Texas the first of which occurs on May 13
The plan proposed is to advertise the ex
cursions in the daily and weekly newspa
pers of the states of Missouri and Kansas
and in the Southeast from whence come
tho excursionists The roads have done all
they can in authorizing and announcing the
excursions and Mr Howard thinks it is no
more than just that the people of Texas
should co operate in making them a suc
cess The roads can be depended upon to
do all in their power to induce large num
bers to tako advantage of the reduced rates
and if the people of Texas advertise them
thoroughly in the North and East the de
sired result will be attained
ATciaaa Invention
Mr W E Vernon of Sine Springs has
invented an elevated railway that promises
to revolutionize the present mode of
travel There is a certain chestnuty
fivor hanging about every device of this
character as so many have been intro
duced only to be cast aside as impracticable
and dane erous but Mr Vernon has some
thing that may astonish the scientific
world before many weeks His model
will show an elevated railway on which
will run a shuttle shaped car holding as
many as twenty live or thirty people
This car rests on six steel slides that run
in deep grooves out into the rail and these
lt 00 ves aro supplied with lubricating oiL
Between the rails there is a hollow tube
mo which driving projectile is arranged
n propc the car by means of compressed
air The car can ba run at
he ritic speed of rXM miles an hour with
perfect safety and stop quicker than a
jil vay train supplied with tho finest air
brakes The principle of the pneumatic
tube which is now in successful operation
h s been utilized to a certain extent in this
marvel of locomotion compared to which
the lightning express may some day be
looked upon as an ox cart With ihis dis
tance annihilator a beef steer can ba shot
through the air from Comanche to St Louis
in three hours There seems to be no limit
to the rate of weed that caa be attained
and the best machinists and mechnies of
Comanche and Slpe Sprincs say it is so sim
ple and practical that they all wondar that
it has not been thought of before A patent
has been applied for and the compressed au
motor may yet drive electricity and steam
from the field as a motive power Coman

now the Boycott of the Alton by the
Eastern Lines AfXcct Them
The ticket brokers over the country are
viewing tho boycott of the Eastern trunk
lines against tho Alton railroad with great
complacency says tho Kansas City Times
The attempt to abolish the payment of coin
missions by the Western roads to the ticket
agents of tho Eastern lines has already
proven the greatest boon to the scalpers
especially those in the East that has be
fallen them for several years
The Western roads will pay commissions
for business no matter who secures it for
them If the Eastern ticket agents are not
allowed to work for their interests then
brokers will be patronized and that too to
such an extent that they will soon become
as great a power in the transaction of
Eastern passenger affairs as they ever were
in the past
This is the view that prominent Western
passenger officials take of the situation and
the daily developments strengthen their
position The Alton has already sought tho
co operation of Eastern brokers in the
localities where they have no regular
agents and it is making no secret about
it either The other Western roads who
have openly complied with the order of
the board of rulings it is said on pood
authority have also turned their patronage
to the scalpers
It is a question with the Western officials
which is the greater evil the payment of
commissions to the regular agents of the
Eastern roads or the building up of the
business of the Eastern brokers
It is said that the scalpers will make
enough money out of tho boycott and the
attempt to abolish the payment of commis
sions to successfully fight hostile legislation
against them for many years to come
ft is the general opinion that by their ac
tion the Eastern roads are encouraging the-
very thing that they do not want to be eng
couraged For several years they have
waged a bitter war against tho brokers and
have sought by every means in their power
to minimize the scalpers business and they
have had considerable success It would
now seem that the labor of all these 5ears
has been undone by one injudicious action
So far tho boycott has had no apparent
effect on the Alton It is doing as much
business as it ever did and its passengers
aro meeting with no inconvenience
The Thirteenth Annual Convention at Kan
sas City
Tho following circular relative to the
thirteenth annual convention of the Ameri
can ticket brokers association to bo held
at Kansas City next month D E Hirsh
field the only association broker in Fort
Worth will attend the meeting
Louisville Ky April 20 1S91
To all Members
The past year has been tho most eventful
in the history 01 the association a history
by no means meager of stirring events Al
though the most strenuous efforts of those
anlagonistic to the interests of ticket bro
kerage have been exerted to destroy us not
the puny efforts of pygmies but of giants
they have failed thanks to the committee
on hostile legislation Although the asso
ciation itself has felt the shock of war
peace has long since been restored thanks
to tho wisdom and prudence of tho execu
tive committee
So then the assembling of the thirteenth
annual convention in Kansas City on Wed
nesday and Thursday the 13th and 14th of
Ma- 1S91 should be recorded as the larg
est and most enthusiastic ever held and
should be an occasion of great interest and
Business of the utmost importance is to
bo considered by tho convention and no
member can afford to permit others to
legislate for him in matters so deeply affect
ing his interest and the u elfare of those de
pending upon him Each member ispio
foundly concerned in the proposed amend
ments to the constitution relating to mem
bership and should be in attendance to
spealc for himself
The circular of welcome issued by tho
Kansas City brethren is in the hands of
every member and it speaks in tones so
hearty and extends so cordial an invitation
that it cannot be resisted
The convention will be held in tho now
Coates house corner of Tenth and Broad
way where accommodations have been
arranged at 350 per day Those wishing
special accommodations can secure them
by addressing any one of tho Kansas City
committee Ladies arc cordially invited
Members will please notify the committee
of arrangements by returning their pos
tal cards duly filled out as promptly as
By order of the executive committee

Unlimited Ticket
Chicago III April 23 It is officially
announced to day that tho lines in the Cen

chairman Donald has issued a circular an
nouncing this as the result of a vote that
has been taken of the membership The
Western passenger association cannot take
such action until the Alton boycott is over
For although tho Alton is one of the orig

consent to tho arrangement until peace has

Tho Rumors About tlio Waco Municipal
Election Cause Many Wrathy Citi
zens to limit the Woods
Special to the Gazette
Waco Tex April 25 The grand jury
has just adjourned having been called to
gether to investigate tho fraud in connec
tion with the late municipal election It
was alleged that in the late campaign
considerable fraud was practiced consist
ing of bribery betting false swearing and
illegal voting This campaign was inter
esting only as regards the treasuiers office
and many prominent citizens took part
and as a result the district pudge recon
vened the grand jury charging them to
make a rigid investigation and where pos
sible find true bills The report of tho
grand jury returns thirty four indictments
and somo of these against wealthy and
prominent citizens It has caused a great
sensation and during the sitting of the
grand jury somo gentlemen were conspicu
ous by their absence from the city
Following is the report of tho body after
five days deliberatious
Hon L W Goodrich Having clearly in
mind the matter given us in charge by your
honor and feelinr the importance of
investigation by tho grand jury we have
made dilligcnt inquiries as to matters per
taining to the election held in this city on
April 7 While wo find that the report or
rumor of irregularities at said election ex
aggerated the facts and thus caused uneasi
ness in the minds of many still the facts as
developed show that it was well to call tho
attention of tho grand jury to such rumor
While this grand jury secured facts upon
which to return indictments in several in
stances there is on the mind of the jury the
idea that all the facts have not been had
nor can they bo had at this time From
this investigation we recognize the impor
tance of throwing aroundthis question of
suffrage every safeguard and in our large
cities it would seem well not only of all
voters but to adopt some such system of
voting as that known as the Australian sys
