N«-w Colorado llailr«a«l Makn Some ' I'nosual l'Un». I Denver, Colo., May 24.—There Is I to be one railroad In Colorado that \ will not operate trains on Sunday. I The road is the Argentine Central which is being constructed fron ι Silver Plume, by way of the Waldorf /mine?, to McClelland mountain, a dis i lance of fourteen miles. The line Is ; to be in operation by July 15. j The road is being built by E. J. j Wilcox of Denver, who is the only 1 railroad man in the state who has j religions scruples against running ! trains on Sunday. He is a Methodist ; and says his church teaches that the! first day of the week is a day of rest j mid that his men should be given an, opportunity to rest on that day ! well as men employed in other lint-s ! of work. The road is being built for the ■ purpose of hauling ores from the Waldorf mines of Silver Plume. It is not believed here that the prestige to be set bv Mr. Wilcox will be generally followed bj the other railroads of Colorado, as Sunday travel to various resorts in this state on that day has been the means of | increasing the passenger earnings of | most of the lines 11 <111 t>> Dallas to Wed. \ marriage liscense was procured here last Saturday tot .1 G.
