Railroad Notes.
The Northern Pacific has made a re
duction of ten cents per hundred on the
wool rate from Helena to Boston.
The Southern Pacific Railroad company
will, it is said, bring over a lot of Arabs to
work on the desert sectior of its line,
J. B. McMahon, Northern Pacific bridge
superintendent at Missoula, has resigned,
to take effect upon the completion of the
O'Keefe trestle.
M. S. Green of Billings has accepted
the position of local manager of the West
era Union office at Butte, and this week
took charge of the office.
A verdict for $500 against the Northern
Pacific and in favor of John Johnson, was
rendered at Fargo last week. Six thous
and dollars was sued for, the ground being
the loss of a thumb.
Citizens of Spokane and Garfield coun
ties, Washington territory, have adopted
resolutions protesting against a forfeiture
of the land granted the Northern Pacific
along its Cascade division.
At one point on the Cascade branch of
the Northern Pacific the railroad describes
a horseshoe which is two and a quarter
miles around and only 1,500 feet across
the hill at the open end of it.
J. B. Cable, formerly division superin
tendent of the Northern Pacific at Mis
soula, has been appointed assistant super
intendent of the Iowa and Dakota division
of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul
railroad.
Since the developments in the Heron
embezzlement case, a new style of tickets
has been adopted by the Northern Pacific
company, whereby there is less chance for
fraud through the connivance of agents
and conductors.
Missoulian : Two-thirds of the iron for
the new trestle at O'Keefe's has been re
ceived and the rest is on the way. The
masonry of the trestle will be finished by
July 15tb, and the entire structure com
pleted by August 20th.
Independent : Messrs. Donald Grant
and J. M. Ross, the gentlemen who have
the contract for the construction of the
Helena & Red Mountain railroad, arrived
from St. Paul last evening and are at the
Grand Central. They will make the dirt
fly in a few days.
A dispatch from Berlin to the Reuter
Telegraph company says: Negotiations
are proceeding with the Hancelsgesells
chaft and some leading New York firms
to take over $5,000,000 of St. Louis and
San Francisco railroad mortgage bonds,
in the form of five per cent, loans, the pro
ceeds to be used in completing the road
to Texas.
The contract for the construction of
the Helena & Red Mountain railroad was
let to Donald, Grant & Co., of Faribault,
Minnesota, and they have accepted its
conditions for rapid work. Mr. Grant
was one of the contractors who built the
Northern Pacific to the Missouri river,
and also built a large mileage of the Can
adian Pacific.
The report of the Central Pacific for
the year ending last December shows a
a surplus over all charges of $368,000
Gross earnings for nine months beginning
April 1st, $11,481,000 ; operating ex
penses, taxes and betterments, $5,405,000 ;
interest and rentals, $3,828,000 ; sinking
fund and United States requirements,
$765,000 ; deficient prior to April 1st,
$1 ,814,000, leaving the surplus as given.
The United States senate has passed a
bill introduced by Senator Dawes, grant
ing the right of way through the Gros
Ventre, Piegan, Blood, Black feet and
other Indian reservations in northern
Montana to any railroad company duly
organized under the laws of any state or
territory, except the district of Columbia,
or by the Congress of the United States,
which shall file with the secretary of the
interior a copy of its articles of incorpor
ation, under certain restrictions.
Anaconda Review : The putting in of
the third rail on the Utah & Northern is
going on steadily. The track has been
completed from Stuart to Anaconda and
from Stuart to Silver Bow. The third
rail is now being laid in the Anaconda
yard. The third rail ties have been put
in five miles north of Stuart and the gang
have run out of ties, which will probably
delay them only a few days. The bridges
have all been changed and new ties have
been put in of standard gauge. It is said
that August 1st has been fixed as the date
whon the standard gauge shall be ready
for operation, and from the proceedings
of the roadmasters there seems to be no
doubt that the track will be ready for
operation by that time.
After the 1 st of next month all the
railroads in New York state will have
to place automatic couplers on every new
freight car. The need of this improve
ment has long been apparent. It is said
that 2,000 brakeman are annually killed
in the United States, while the number
wounded in coupling cars is very much
greater. We have no statistics to prove
the fact, but we believe that there is no
other employment that is so dangerous—
that is, that has so great a ratio of fatal
accidents among its employes—as that of
brakeman on railroads. In this respect
very little improvement has been made
since the old days. All though trains
should have automatic couplers and air
brakes.—Ex.
The senate committee on the judiciary
reported favorably Senator Van Wyck's
bill to authorize the Union Pacific to
build branch lines in Nebraska, Kansas,
Colorado, Oregon, Nevada, Utah, Idaho,
Wyoming and Montana, and to acquire
by lease, contract, construction, purchase,
by subscription to capital stock, or guar
anty bonds, railroad franchises in any of
these states and territories. The permis
sion is general and sweeping, but there
are certain restrictive provisions. In no
case shall the purchase price or the bonds
guaranteed exceed the actual cost of con
struction, and no guarantee shall be given
to bonds issued prior to the passage of the
act. No road can be acquired in any way
except upon the basis of the actual cost of
construction, and no transaction shall be
valid without the sanction of two-thirds
of the stockholders and the approval of
the secretary of the interior, who shall de
termine the value of the property. A sec
tion is added which will not be relished
by the railroad companies, and rather im
pairs the value to them of the provisions
of the bill, as it spreads the lien of the
government now existing upon the origi
nal line of the Union Pacific over all the
branches that it now has or may hereafter
acquire. In other words, the first mort
gage bonds now secured to the govern
ment by a lien upon the old road, will
have the benefit of an additional security
in all the property that may hereafter be
1
1
obtained by the Union Pacific, by lease,
contract, purchase, construction or other
wise.
A Creaking Hinge
Is dry and turns hard, until oil is applied,
after which it moves easily. When the
joints, or hinges, of the body are stiffened
and inflamed by Rheumatism, they can
not be moved without causing the most
excruciating pains. Ayer's Sarsaparilla,
by its action on the blood, relieves this
condition, and restores the joints to good
working order.
Ayer's Sarsaparilla has effected, in our
city, many most remarkable cures, in
cases which baffled the efforts of the
most experienced physicians. Were it
necessary, I could give the names of
ma ny individuals who have been cured
by taking this medicine. In my case it
has worked wonders, relieving me of
Rheumatism,
after being troubled with it for years. In
this, and all other diseases arising from
impure blood, there is no remedy with
which I am acquainted, that affords such
relief as Ayer's Sarsaparilla.— R. H.
Lawrence, M. D., Baltimore, Md.
Ayer's Sarsaparilla cured me of Gout
and Rheumatism, when nothing else
would. It has eradicated every trace of
disease from my system.— R. H. Short,
Manager Hotel Belmont, Lowell, Mass.
I was, during many months, a sufferer
from chronic Rheumatism. The disease
afflicted me grievously, in spite of all the
remedies I could find, until I commenced
using Ayer's Sarsaparilla. I took sev
eral Dottles of this preparation, and was
speedily restored to health. — J• Fream,
