The line will be rebal lasted and placed in first class condition in every way for the heavy winter traffic which the road will be subjected to, it be ing used jointly by the Santa Fe and Salt Lake roads. It has been learned from offi cials of the road that the East ern Oklahoma division oT the Santa Fe will be known hence forth as the main freight line between Chicago and Kansas City to Oklahoma and Texas points. The former main line running south through Arkan sas City, Guthrie and Oklaho ma will be used for passenger and local freight service. The eastern Oklahoma line was con structed with this point in view. It runs byway of Pawnee, Still - j water and Shawnee, to Paul’s I Valley. Within three weeks the new Santa Fe Railroad hospital in Los Angeles will be completed and opened for use. There is a probability that it will be used jointly by the Santa Fe, South ern Pacific and Salt Lake roads, as the two latter roads have no hospital buildings there. The buildings are of the old mission style, cost $200,000. and are seven in number, being connect ed with covered passages which may be thrown open when the w 7 eather permits. The grounds cover three acres, and altogeth er it is the finest hospital in the west. The telegraphone. the newly invented instrument for use in telephoning over telegraph wires, has been installed on the Santa Fe Central Railway for some time past as an experi | ment and has been found suc cessful. The instrument has been adopted on parts of the Southern Pacific and other big systems for use in handling trains to the exclusion of the telegraph instrument and its re liability has been demonstrated. There are telegraphones in use in the trainmaster's office of the Santa Fe Central in Santa Fe and at Kennedy, Moriartv, An telope Springs and Torrance, and they have been found a great convenience by officers of the system and others. The belief is growing among railroad men that Chief Engi neer R. B. Burns, of the coast lines of the Santa Fe, has quit the line for good. 11l health is assigned for the leave of ab sence, but it is thought the ex tremely onerous duties that have fallen to the chief engineer in the past two or three years, is the cause of his retirement. The friends of C. A. Morse, who is temporarily filling the place of Mr. Burns, believe he will ultimately be appointed to the position. He is well quali fied for the place as he has been assistant engineer on the lines east of Albuquerque and for a year, during the absence of W. B. Story, filled the position of chief engineer. Albuquerque Citizen. The first of the new engines built especially for the New Mexico division of the Santa Fe by the Baldwin Locomotive Works arrived in Albuquerque this morning. The engine w r as in charge of Engineer Blevins, of Las Vegas. The train that the engine hauled to this city weighed exactly 1.150 tons, the weight the new engines are guaranteed to haul. Engine 1601 is the first one of twenty of the sixteen-hundred class that have been purchased |by the Santa Fe for use be tween this city and Las Vegas. The engines weigh 140 tons and are fitted with all the latest ap pliances known to engine con j struction. Announcement has also been made that the Santa Fe will add seven new engines of the twelve-hundred class, used ex clusively for passenger service between this city and Las Ve gas, to those already on hand. These engines are built for speed and it was one of this class that was used to haul the Walter Scott special from Albu querque to Las Vegas. The addition of these engines is said to be only a starter of the vast improvements to the other kinds of equipment the Santa Fe is to make to its lines in New Mexico and Arizona. — Albuquerque Citizen, Septem ber 12th.
