OFFICIALS ARE SATISFIED Harriman Approves Plan for Union Pacific Machine to the Pa cific Coast. "We have at last got what we, regard as a practical gasoline motor for rail road work, the first practical gasoline motor in the world, and its discovery means almost as much as the discov ery and construction of the first rail road steam engine." This is what Julius Kruttschnitt, di rector of maintenance and transporta tion for the Harriman lines, says re garding the new motor which has re cently been completed in the shops of the Union Pacific road. With the pos sible exception of heavy through train service, it is declared the motor is en tirely capable of doing the work now done by steam, and the management of the Harriman lines has determined to put the motors in service on all the branch lines of the system and to sub stitute them for steam trains on the main lines where the runs are short and not too heavy. Trip Acroaa Continent. With the approval of E. H. Harri man, a transcontinental trip is being arranged for the motor. It is proposed to operate it from Omaha to Portland and to exhibit it there at the exposition for a short time. Then the car will be run over the Shasta route to San Fran cisco, from there to Los Angeles, thence to New Orleans and Chicago by the way of St. Louis. Between Chicago and Milwaukee the car will make special runs with a view to testing its speed and power abili ties, and subsequently will be taken to New York by the way of Buffalo and back again by the way of Washington and Pittsburg. NOTES OF THE RIVER. Capt. W. A. Thompson, who has charge of the government work at La Crosse said that the only work which is being done on the river by the gov ernment at the present time is Ihe placing of buoys on the ends of the wing dams. About a hundred of these are placed every spring as they are regularly stolen by steamboats, and frequenty rust loose and float away. Boats down were the U. S. Fensas, Ruth. Eclipse, R, D. Kendall and E. Rutledge. The Ruth, Eclipse, It. D. Kendall. E. Rutledge, Phil Scheckel and B. Hershey went north. RIVER FORECAST.
