Visit to Miami The inspection of Miami and a glance at the great mining district of Ulobo brought forth many additional expressions of surpriso and delight. That the visit of these prominent railroad officials 1ms a deep significance cannot but be admitted. Although tho trip to this district was made withMhe intention of inspecting tho railroad lines and the manner hi which they nre maintained, equipped and conducted, as a prime factor, this visit has impressed upon them something of tho importance of tho Globo district and its immense copper deposits to tho outsido world. Ah tho result, tho value which new lines into tliis district will eventually attain has been impressed upon them, at lvist to a measure, and that an enormous amount of now construction work bene ficinl to this district will be carried out within tho next few years is but a sanguine statemont of fact, as admitted by tho visitors. . Headed by Judgo K. S. Lovett, tho successor of K. II. Ilarriman at tho head of tho biggest railroad system in tho worjd, a group of tho best known railroad officials in tho country visited this city Inst evening, making Globe as a part of an inspection trip which em braces tho entire southwest. Aside from Judgo Loett, tho party was made up of Julius Kruttschnitt, director of maintenance and operation of tho Ilarriman lines, .1. 0. Stubbs, di rector of that system, E. O. McUormiek, vice president in chargo of traffic of tlicr Southern Pacific system, vEpcs Ban dolph, at the head of tho Ilarriman lines iu Arizona, Charles S. Pee, pas senger traffic manager of tho Espee, It. S. Stubbs, freight and traffic manager of tho Baudolph system, Robert Goclet and W. M. Stillmnn. On n special train ma do up of six private cars, tho party arrived hoie at (1 o'clock last evening. A stopof fif teen minutes was mado in this city, af ter which tho spgeial visited Miami, and returning to this city at.S o'clock, left for Mexico. Tho nrrival of tho special train car rving so many well known, figures in railroad lifo of today was met by a big delegation from tho chamber of com merce. Judgo Lovett, Colonel Randolph and a number of tho other visitors descended from their cars and greeted tho delegation warmly, conveising on general topics and giving their hearty approval of tho appearance of this city. "When I started out to make a tour of tho railroads of the southwest." said Mr. Lovett, in speaking to tho Sil ver Belt, "I did-so with tho intention of inspecting tho poorer lines of tho Hrriman system. With this lino, how ever, I have been ngreeably surprised. It is ono of the best branch lines 1 have had occasion to travel "over in many years and is in every way creditable. Pleased With City v "Tho sizo of Globe, as I can de termine it, is nlo a revelation to me. I had not expected to find such a thriv ing city hero and I can't blnnio yoitr peoplo for boosting for more railroads and better rail connection with tho out sido world. "This trii) will cmbraco tho entiro southwest and all of tho Ilarriman system, in fact, and will occupy about six weeks. From here wo will go into Mexico, then go to I'hoenix and later visit practically overy road of tho com pany in Arizona. From Arizona wo will travel to California, i wish tinrticn larly to visit tho Imperial valley, of which I havo heard so much." Although at tho head of tho big gest railroad concern in tho country, Judge Lovett shows nothing of tho cares which must of necessity devolve upon him in his position, his smiling countenanco and hearty laugh giving him tho demeanor of ono who has noth ing of tho worries of a position such as he now holds. At tho depot last evening, ho greeted tho crowd pleasantly, shaking hands with tho business men who wero intro duced to him and joking with tho crowd in an informal manner during much of tho timo wo was tho center of attrac tion. Colonel Uandolph took occasion to greet many old friends who wero pres ent and to speak highly of Globo and tho place of prominence which her progress has attained for her in tho past few months. That this district GASOLINE MOTOR CARS TO 111 NO OBSTACLE TO LINE IN BOX CANYON Geological Survey Rejects Application "for Irri gation Project RIGHT OF WAY NOW EXPECTED AT ONCE Dirt "Will Be Flying at Two Ends of Cutoff in Very Near Future Definite Assurance Given to Silver Belt Yesterday By Epes Randolph TO START SERVICE SOON AS POSSIBLE New Passenger Depot, Over head Viaduct and Many Other Improvements Gasolino motor car service will be established at once -between Globo and Miami. The wishes of the business men of this city, as presented to Colonel Epes Randolph through a petition of the chamber of commerce, Jiave been ac ceded to and as boon as tho propr equipment can be becured, the much wanted qu'iek service will bo estab lished. A definite announcement to this ef fect was made to tho Silver licit last night by Mr. Randolph, after he had visited Miami with Judge I?. S. Lovett and other prominent railroad officials. .Mr. Uandolph stated that an attempt was now being made to secure a gaso lino motor car from sonic other line of tho Uandolph system, to bo operated over tho Miami line. If this plan can bo carried out, it will bo a mat ter of only a few days time until tho now service is established. If it is not possible to secure a motor oar already in seivice, a new car will be oideied from the factory at onco and will be put in service as soon as it can bo secured. In any event, it will be a matter of only a short time until better transpor tation facilities between Globo and Mi ami will bo afforded. Colonel Ran dolph is making arrangements for the new equipmeut and it will soon bo in stalled. As to the service which 1ho new motor car will afford, no definite an nouncement has as yet been made. Tho service will bo iu keeping with traffic over the line, however, and will enable tho peoplo ot Globe anil Minim to travel over tho new lino practically at their own convenience. In securing motor car servico between this city and Miami tho Globo cham ber of commerce has performed, an other valuablo service for tho peoplo of this district. It was in the face of much opposition at Miami that a petition requesting this improvement was circulated in Globe by the chamber of commerce and signed by practical ly eveiy business man in Globe. The petition has had the desired effect and President Towle, Secretary Rohrabaeh er and the transportation committee (Continued on Page Four) JSlVlvsvvsAsvvsvwwwwsAw.wswwwvvwwwNl Railroad Extensions Contemplated Never in the history of the great Globe district has the visit of a delegation of prominent railroad officials been marked with as many announcements of new improvements as was the visit to this city yesterday of Judge R. S. Lovett, the new head of the great Harriman system, and the important railroad officials who accompanied him. Here are some of the important announcements made to the Silver Belt yes terday by Judge Lovett and Colonel Epes Randolph, at the head of the South ern Pacific interests in Arizona: The construction of the Box canyon cutoff is assured. The department of -the interior lias ruled adversely against the practicability of the Box canyon as a site for an irrigation dam, and the approval of the railroad company's map is ex pected within a short time. Immediately with the approval of this map, work will be commenced at both ends of the new line and will be rushed to completion. Gasoline motor car service between Globe and Miami will be established at once. The new Broad street viaduct and contingent work, which will materially improve the Miami line, will be commenced as soon as a right of way agreement can be reached with the Old Dominion Copper Mining & Smelting company, which will probably come within a short time. The proposed Globe-Durango line is more than a possibility. The railroad company is working on this line in good faith and in the opinion of Colonel Ran dolph, it will be constructed at a date not far distant. A new passenger station for Globe is assurred for the near future, an ap propriation for that purpose being under consideration at the present time. These announcements, which mean so much to Globe and the Globe district, are official. They are definite statements from Judge Lovett and Colonel Ran dolph to the Silver Belt and are not made through refusals of these officials to deny unconfirmed rumors. ssissssfi E T W K OF GRAFT IS REVEALED , Returns of Grand Jury In vestigating ( Pittsburg Scandal Published Tho construction of the Box canyon cutoff, which will connect tho Globe division of tho Arizona Eastern railroad with Phoenix and tho coast by way of San Carlos and Winkelman, is as sured. The geological su'rvey, to which the seeietary of the interior soino time ago referred tho question of the practicabil ity of constructing an irrigation dam a short distance below San Carlos, had lcportod ndvciso'y to the claims of (he inigation piomoters. Tho early approv al of the profile maps of the Arizona Eastern and the granting of permission from the government to construct tho low grade line through tho Box canyon is expected at any time, and immediate ly upon the granting of this permit, ac tive construction work will bo com menced. Such is tlie substance of a statement mado to the Silver Belt yesterday, by Colonel Epes Randolph, at tho head of tho Southern Pacific interests in Ari zona. -" Mr. Uandolph talked freely regarding the matter and gave out tho first offi cial statement to be mado regarding the practical ratification by tho government of tho low grade survey through the Box canyon. Irrigation Project Condemned "It is true," said Mr. ltandolph, "that tho department of tho interior has'' decided against the claims of irri gation promoters who havo been en deavoiing to secure a permit to but Id an irrigation dam in tho Box canyon, on tho Gila liver below San Carlos. "This action is to all appearances the forerunner of tho approval of our profile maps for the proposed low grade lino through the Box canyon and tho granting of a right of way over the low grado line. Wo aro awaiting tho ap proval of the company and expect to be notified of this action on tho part of the department of lie interior within a very short time. "As soon as this right of way is granted, construction work on the cut off will commence. We nre already working on the Winkclninn end. This force will bo enlarged and in addition, another outfit will begin work at San Carlos. A big outfit will bo put to work on this line and it will bo rushed to completion. "The construction of this line will be of great value to Globe, as tho peo plo of this city well know. It will af ford better transportation facilities with practically all territorial points and will shorten tho distance between Globo and the coast to a considerable patent. "As to t lie service which will bo installed on tho new line, I am as yet in no position to mako a statement. Thee matters will bo worked out later. "Will the construction of the line from San Carlos to Lordsburg follow immediately? As to that I cannot say. It takes time to but Id railroads and all our plans will work out in due time." Durango Promising Regarding' the construction of the Globe-Durango line, Judge Lovett con ceded tho need and feasibility of the extension, but would not say that the appropiiations had been made. Mr. ltan dolph was very optimistic.
