Captain Carter bas been in Mexico two or three months, and bis former connection with the Government was known to tbe Brick Company people and to all others wbo take an interest In public matters. Captain Carter represents a syndicate of capitalists, and bas an option on tbe Mexloo Brick I'lant, and we sincerely trust will locate in Mexico permanently.

Tbe engineers of tbe toutb branch are no actively at work near Hereford, Calla way county.

It will not be sold out to tbe steam roaa, be cause It pays to keep it, and It Is ruin ous to sell f k Most charters of elec tric roads forbid tbelr operation by steam road methods. Nearly all In terurban roads are "parallel aod com peting lines" within tbe meaning or intent of tbe law, soltbey cannot be absorbed by steam roads without vio lating tne Jaw. Tbe .United States supreme court recently decided tbat the New York ft New Haven road must relinquish tbe .ownership ac quired in rrne competing Interurban roads. Besides, steam roads bave no surplus money with which to buy up interurban; most of them are pant ing pretty bard to keep tbelr finan cial breath, and there's pretty tough sledding ahead of tbem. It must be borne In mind too tbat tb steam road I operated so as to ac commodate aod cultivate tbrougb business , trains that ravel long dis tances and do little or no local traffic While Interurban roads are to accom modate local business, short trains and frequent service are tbelr purpose. Tbe methods of operating tbe two roads Is wholly different.

Stephens Clothing Tb steam mad xoanagemeat knows very well that it could not operate tbe mtemrben as well as tbe local owners oaa, ao It would be a detriment to the steam road for It to acqulr the inter arbaa. Toe wholesale merchant know that hit basinets would suffer If be bough l up tne retailer or suppressed blm. So tne steam road know lu business would suffer if it bought up or short ened tbe service of tbe interurban. Tne interest of tb two different kinds of roads srs mutual, not antag onistic. Don't let tbe ' sell out" notion trouble yon; it's simply the weapon ot tbe "knocker." As an illustration ot why the own ers ot In terurban railways do not "sell out" take tbe case ot Mr. George 1. Bishop, wbo la actually tbe trolley king of tbe United Slates. Mr. Blsnop was a railway clerk at 18 years of age and is now a multi millionaire at 44. He persuadedlsome friend to back iblm with capital to build a trolley road from Dallas to Ft. Worth In Texas. In two years be returned all of tbe money be paid out for building tbe road and earned 100 per cent on tbe investment for him self and bis backers. Then be built an Interurban road from Baltimore to Washington City with a branch to the Doited States Naval Academy at An- napolla. This road I a gold mine that It getting richer tbe more it it worked. Wa. & McKlnley, of Illinois, a member ot congress and the owner of a trolley sittem of over 300 mile In length In centra! Illinois, begsn building interarban about six years sgo. He bad nothing a tew. years ago except the conndesce of soa friends with money to invest. Sow be it sev eral times a millionaire and his friends wbo trusted la bis geolus and skill uavs reaped large returns on their In vestment. Hundreds of enterprising people all.over tbe land bave made fortunes out of Interarban roads, not by selling tbem out but by operating them. Tbsre are 30,000 miles of electric trolley and interurban roads In tbe country, all of wblcb are paying large dividends. Ohio leads tbt list wltb about 2,300 miles; Indians, Mlohlan aod Illinois come next In order named, of large mileage. But these roads are not all confined to tbe central states, tbey are all over tbe land and are multiply lng dally. 8 team railroad eompanleeCdo not try to buy these roads, for tbey are more valuable to tbem when tbey are oper ated as Interurban roads and owned by the original promoters, .and being valuable to tbe lownert tbey are not tor sale. Referring again to tbe values of lands; once i went Into a little village to buy a site for a repair shop; land had been unsalable iat 120 per acre. There hadn't been a .transaction tor years. But when It was learned tbst an Interurban road was coming tbe sere price Increased to 11,600 per acre and subdivision .property sold at prices exceeding this. Tbe reason tor this Increase is tbe traffic tbat comes to towns and cities by toe bulldlog of tbe interurban roads. Tbls traffic Is nearly all new bus! ness, created by tbe frequent opera tion of tbe Interurban trains. After tbe rosd from Dallas to fort Wortb was built the trtfflo Increased 300 per cent and the loss ot business to tbe steam roads was leas than 15 per cent. The people travel more, because tbey can go and come when tbey please at a small cost. There It no industry more profitable tban a well managed and properly built Interurban railway and there are thousands ot places where these roads can be built cheaply and make fortuues for tbelr owners. A little enterprise coupled wllb sense enough to secure skilled aod ex perienced assistance will set the tblng to, 'going, and first claw Interurban railways are maklng'tbeir stock bold era rich as a result.
