Hart of Oakland. James i^itz, a chaffeur, ran a $4,500 automobile off from the rear of a ferry boat in San Francisco bay yes terday. Hart decided to "drown" the offending- automobile, after it had rolled up a repair bill amounting to $2,000. Yesteraay he called Litz into his libr ary. "Take that car out and lose it," he said. "I can't lose it," replied Litz, "It's too weak now. Somebody would find it and bring it back ajjain." "Then sink it in the middle of the bay," said Hart. For the first time in weeks the ear ran smoothly to the ferryboat. Litz asked *he mate to show him the deep est spot in the harbor. When the boat reached the designated place Litz stealthily ran the car to the vessel ap ron. Then he pulled wide the throttle and leaped to the deck. The automobile splashed into the waters of the bay.— Minneapolis Journal. Mrs. John Forsberg- returned home Monday from a visit since Thursday with friends at Pennock.

WILLMAB TBI6UNEJ, WMtilsftAV, HOVtMBtntf,|||J ELECTRIC BOAD OFPICIAX.S ACTIVE The Electric Short tine a Sure Thing Now. Gleneoe Enterprise: The latest project of the officers of the Electric Short Line which is being built from Minneapolis to Watertown, S. Da., the route of which passes through Win&ted and Bear Lake in this county, is the building of anoth er line that will branch off to the south ward from its line at Watertown, Carv- ELECTRIC RAILROAD PROPOSITION RECEIVING SERIOUS ATTENTION Beport of the Clara City Business Hen's Committee. Messrs. D. Grashuls, M. S.Carl and G. Berghuls were appointed by the busi ness men of Clara City to Investigate the proposed electric line project, and made the following report which we clip from the Clara City Herald: "We the undersigned, selected by you to investigate the standing of the Elec tric Short Line Railway Company and the promoters thereof,- respectfully sub mit the following report:— "We went to Minneapolis on the 12th. Inst and spent the entire day in looking over the work already accomplished by the Company, in investigating its pres ent financial standing and interviewing, leading business men and bankers in re gard to the standing and reputation of the promoters. We believe that the in formation hereinafter given to be sub stantially correct: "The principal promoters of the Com pany are W. L. and E. D. Luce. These parties have lived in Minneapolis for a number of years, own a very large am ount of valuable business property and have an excellent reputation in every way \Ve are inf.rmed that they are not, promoters, as the term is generally un derstood, but are investors, and that any statements that they might make to us could be absolutely relied upon. "For some years these parties have been quietly securing a Right of Way from the heart of the City to the City limits—a distance' of about three miles —to be used by lnterurban lines in en tering the City. They have invested about $700,000 in this Right of Way. The project has now been incorporated and a contract let to do the grading and lay the rails. This contract provides for the payment of an additional $200, 000 and the work is to be completed by January 1st, 1913. Work is now being done in the way of^ grading on this con tract. "The Electric Short Line Railway Company has been incorporated for the purpose of building an electric road from the City limits in a westerly direction to Watertown, S. Dak. Several miles of grading have already been done and about eight miles of rail laid. A Right of Way has been bought for a consider able distance. The Luces' have invested $331,000 in this Company to date, and have sold about $125,000 in stock, prin cipally to Minneapolis business men. They estimate that it will take about $400,000 more to complete the road to Watertown, Minn., a distance of about 26 miles. This amount of stock they are now offering to the people along the Right of Way. When the road has been completed to this place they promise to bond the road for a sufficient amount to complete it to Watertown, S. Dak. In order to raise this money they have agreed to put up as additional security the property owned by the terminal company referred to, and valued at about $1,000,000. We are informed by a leading Minneapolis banker that with this security they should have no dif ficulty in selling the 'required bonds. "The Electric Short Line Railway has entered into a written agreement with the- terminal Company to enter the City terms which we believe very rea sonable. The contract is a perpetual con tract and provides that the charges per car can never be increased. The "Danmenced Patch" Company has made a contract on the same terms, excepting that they are required to pay a somewhat higher min imum charge. "We believe that the project is entire ly feasable and that the affairs of the Company are being honestly adminis tered. The Luces have pledged us their word that all stock will be sold for ex actly the same price, including any stock taken by them, and that there will not at any time be any promotion or "watered" stock issued."

Luce, of Minneapolis, pres ident of the Electric Short Line now under construction from Minneapolis to Watertown, S. D., was in Gleneoe Sun day in company with Attorney F. E. Reed, also of that city. They were en route home In an automobile from New Auburn where they had been in confer ence with businessmen regarding the ex tension of the electric line through that village. A meeting was arranged to be held at New Auburn on Tuesday eve ning, Nov. 19, at 8 o'clock, when officers of the electric line will meet with the residents of that town to confer with them regarding the securing of a right of-way and station facilities and the sale of stock in the electric road. Mr. Luce says the company intends to pur chase its right-of-way, but that it will endeavor to sell a certain amount of stock to people in the towns and coun try through which the proposed line is to pass to help finance the enterprise. The proposed electric line from Min neapolis to New Auburn, will cross the Great Northern road, the Milwaukee and touch the Northwestern at New Ulm. It will pass along a route having a wide territory of the best farming country in the states on either side and running north and south as it does, will give the public greater convenience in cross-country travel. Mr. Luce says about twenty trains a day would be op erated, which is ten each way, and from any point on the proposed line it would be as short a distance to Minneapolis as by the steam railroads. The terminal of the Luce lines is near the Shubert theatre in Minneapolis in the very heart of the city. The construction of the line from Min neapolis to Watertown, S. D., has been vigorously pushed during the past sea son and it is believed that the road will be completed and the rails laid on a long stretch out of Minneapolis early next year. SBOBT KIBE ENCUNEEB VISITS DAWSON Boad Definitely laid and Will Pass Through Dawsoa on Way to Watertown. Dawson Sentinel: J. H. Thomas, chief engineer of the Electric Short Line Company of Minneapolis was in Dawson Wednesday, making a preliminary sur vey of the ground, and deciding defin itely the course of the road. Although it was first the intention of the engineer that the road should pass a mile and a half north of town the company will probably yield to the wish es of the people of Dawson and run the road into the city. In fact, in an interview, Mr. Thomas declared that the road would cross the river just north of the lower railroad bridge, and run along the forty-line south of the river, straight west to Wat ertown. The hill south of the water tank has been chosen for depot ground. Mr. Thomas says that eighteen miles of track will be finished this fall. Right of way has been acquired a distance of thirty-six miles out of Minneapolis. Erie Luce, president of the road, com the project two and one-half years ago. Realizing that other sub urban lines had failed for lack of ter minal facilities, he set about to acquire them. The result is that he has ter minals into the heart of Minneapolis within three blocks of the West Hotel. This terminal property has been acquir ed at a cost of $700,000. Already grad ing and laying of track has been done to the extent of $341,000. The Dan Patch line, which has no terminal facilities, and which has bad to build its station outside of the city, will pay $12,000 per year rental for the use of the terminal. Among the stockkholders of the road are some of the leading business men of Minneapolis, such as T. B. Walker, George Dayton and W. H. Eustis. Stocks in the new road will^ be sold, and Mr. Luce purposes to put up his ter minal property as security. After forty or fifty-miles of railroad have been built, the system will be bond ed and enough money raised to finish it. It is estimated that it will cost $20,000 per mile to finish the road.
