Breaking up of tlic Ice In the rivers hsu
brought the llrst mntorlal damage to thi
Missouri 1'aciflc road. The north section oi
llio bridge across HIP Piatte- river between
Plattsmouth and LaPlatlo wont out ycsterdas
moraine. It was due entirely to the hcavj
movement of the Ice which has accumulated
In the river during thu winter. The bridge
building crow was sent from Atchleon , Kan.
nt once to rebuild the break , nud It la ex
pected by the olllcera of the road that the
damage will be repaired to permit the reg
ular running of trains Inside of two days.
A passenger who canto In on the tralc
from the south nald he felt the bridge sae
ns the train crossed the structure. Hi
thought the train was off the track nt the
time , 'but ' ns It continued on HB Journey
concluded there must have "been " Homo othei
cause for tbo sensation liu experienced
When. ho heard that the bridge had gone
out ho at once concluded Its weakened con
dition began to manifest itself when his
train crossed.
The Missouri 1'aclflc company has bn <
more or less trouble with this bridge fron
the day It was built , every tlmo there wai
high water or heavy Ice Mowing. A fev
years ago n man WBH drowned there whlli
engaged In protectluK the structure from tin
enormous cakes of Ice which threatened It
It la a pllo bridge , und Its stability I :
threatened by the uncertain position of tin
current of the river nnd the unreliable bei
of the stream.
The olllclnlB of the road are congratulat
Ing themselves that the break In the brldgi
was discovered In tlmo to prevent any wrecl
to the trains of the line. No. 1 , which li
duo hero nt G a. in. , was due at the bridgi
about 5 o'clock , an hour which , with tin
character of the weather prevailing , woul <
ordinarily have prevented discovery of thi
dangerous condition. It was found In time
however , to warn nil trains , and pending thi
rebuilding of tbo bridge trains will be oper
uted through Union and Weeping Wute
ulong the old main line.

Any one thinking of applying at th (
Union Pacific headquarters for a position Ir
nny department of the road must first make
euro of his age. Age limit Is one of the
Htrlctest rules In force on the road undei
the present management. A few days age
n resident of Omaha applied ut the audi
'
tor's office ) for n position. There were twc
vacancies there. Ho was annulled foi
cither of them , nnd had recommendations
from many of the leading wholesalers am !
shippers In the city. Ho seemed to satlsfj
every requirement made at the ofllce , anc !
felt ho waa to bo given one of the places ,
when ho was asked his ago. He was o
year or so past 40 , nnd was Informed 'this
was an Insurmountable tor to his employ
ment ,
Inquiries at headquarters developed the
fact that thla rule prevails everywhere on
the system , 'but Is more strictly applied IE
the auditor's office. In other department !
It Is generally applied , but occasional excep
tions are made In extraordinary cases. One
of thu officers In defending the rule aali
It requires from eight to twelve years for t
man to equip himself In almost any brauc )
of railroad work. After becoming pro-
llclcnt the company Is entitled to some
years moro of his service in return fo :
preparing him Tor tlio work. "When i
man begins service at 40 years or past , '
said this official , "he Is well up In the r.O :
7 > eforo It can 'bo ' said he is a capable railroai
man , nnd another rule In force there , retir
ing a man when ho reaches the age of CO
placed the company In the position of edu
cating the employe only to discharge hire
when ho becomes of value to the road. "

For permanent Improvements along th <
line of the Union Pacific road the director !
of the company a few days ago set aside tb <
mini of $9,000,000. So far as can bo learuce
Bicro this money will all bo expended ir

It Is simply n provision for taking earn ol
contracts previously let to meet necessities
which required prompt action. For Instance
a largo part of the money will go to pay foi
the new depot which Is building In Omalu
nnd the securing of additional terminal fa
cilities needed to accommodate such new
lines ns may desire to use that de-pot ,
Other portions of the money will go'to paj
for the largo order for new equipment or
dered a few weeks ago , and which is nov
being built for the road. Still a much large :
portion of It will bo used In rebuilding thi
Julffiburg branch In Colorado , which was recently -

As nn Indication ot the extensive use o :
printer's Ink by railroads to properly place
their equipment and conveniences before
the public , a case In point has been fount
at the Union Pacific headquarters. The
passenger department of the road has re
ceived several copies of papers published li
Australia In which the praises of the Over
land system were sung In the peculiar typo'
graphical style of the English press. In thi
Melbourne Age there was a reading notice
calling attention to the extraordinary offei
of ti through ticket for a trip around tin
world by the agencies ot certain steamshli
lines , the Central Pacific , Union Pacific nm
Northwestern lines nnd their connections
Some of the language used in reference te
these roads has become so familiar will
the reading public In this country as to bi
a trade mark , and Is quickly recognizee
In the advertisements published In Aus.
tralla. The advertising was contracted foi
by the Union Pacific's agent at Hong Kong
Service ConHlilerrd Too .
There Is no immediate proepcct that the
local service between Omahn and Soutr
Omaha over the -Missouri Pacific will lx
established. Residents of this city whe
work In South Omaha petitioned the road ;
few weeks ago to put on a train vhlcl
would accommodate them In going to am
from their work. The petition was sen
to the superintendent at Atchlson , nnd the
report has just ibecn returned from there
that the service desired would bo too ex
pensive for the company to Inaugurate. li
was estimated that It would cost afoou
$600 a month to operate such trains , am
the company could not see adequate re
turns In prospect. Some of those who ad
vocated I ho service are now endeavoring te
convince the management of the road thai
no such expense would be incurred In utilis
ing the switch engines which are constnntlj
plying between the two allies , tout thl :
effort Is probably destined to fall.
Slimy OuliiK to J'ort Arthur.
Local officers of the Port 'Arthur route hav <
assurances there will 'bo ' a generous turnoui
of Omaha people on the road's excursion le
Port Arthur next week to attend the cele
bration of the opening ot the Port Arthui
canal. By the terms made all passenger ;
from this city will bo carried to Kansai
City and return free of expense , provldec
they buy a ticket from Kansas City to Pori
Arthur nnd return nt the rate of $15 foi
the round trip. The local officers are putting -
ting forth every effort to have n good show
ing from this end of the line , and are en
couraged by the outlook. It Is possible
enough may bo secured to warrant the com
pany running a special train from hero foi
their accommodation. Passengers maj
leave either on the morning or evening
train next Tuesday , leaving Kansas Citj
for the south the following day.
IMctiirpN \cbriiNUu Farms.
In the March IBSUO of the Corn Belt i
publication fathered by the pasenger depart
ment of the Burlington , there appears i
number of clearly printed Illustrations o
farm scenes In Nebraska. The title page I
taken up by a picture of a cattle feedlni
lot in Furnas county , with n thick growtl
of trees In the background. Another scon
is nn alfalfa farm in Furnas county , an Jo

IIOUBO in Harlnn county , a creamery in th
southern part of the state , n farm horn

Kansas also receives some attention in thl

CHICAGO. March 14. The Interstate
Commerce commission today continued in
vestigation of the charges ngalnst the rail
roads of discriminating ngalnst Chicago ant
other Illinois points In western trausmls-
slsslppl rates on grain for export. A num
ber of railroad and board of trade men tes
tified. On behalf ot the railroads it was
urged that the low rates from Iowa were
necessary for the railroads to get business
Tlie Board of Trade men said the discrimi
nation prevented them from shipping gralr
for export ; that the elevators were flllei
with grain awaiting the opening of navi
gation before they could compete with the
Iowa points.

When the checks were sent to the bnnV

the -checks for Coburn came to him a llttl
