Kahn Dneiiifi Assistant Oriml Frelaht and Pasaenaer Aatent and Major Hnrtianaa Is Apparently Retired. ' "The Nebraska and Wyoming division of the Chicago & Northwestern railway" will be the new name of the Fremont, Elkhorn t Missouri Valley railroad. George F. Hid well will remain in general charge of the division, C. C. Ilughea will remain In charge of the operating department and John A. Kuhn will be assistant general freight and passenger figent of the Chicago ft Northwestern railway, with headquarters at Omaha, and In charge of the traffic de partment of the Nebraska and Wyoming division. W. H. Jonea will be division freight agent In charge of the freight side and J. W. Munn will be division passenger agent In charge of the passenger depart ment. AH this Is to take effect on March 1, and the Information was brought to Omaha yesterday from Chicago by General Manager Bldwell and General Freight Agent Kuhn. who went there on Mondiy for ttls purpose. Mr. Bldwell on hie return made the follow. Ing statement: "The Northwestern lines west of the Missouri river will on and after March 1 be operated as the Nebraska and Wyoming division of the Chicago & Northwestern railway. The offices will remain In Omaha and the business of the linea will be con ducted In all essential particulars the same a heretofore. I think I am safe In saying that I ahall remain In charge as manager, Mr. Kuhn in charge of traffic and Mr. Hughes In charge of operating. Borne de tails had not been fully arranged at the time of my laet advices and I am not In position, therefore, to say more at this time." - No Mention of Dachnnan. Thus the changes in the traffic depart ment are all arranged and the new titles et. Mr. Jones has been chief clerk in the freight department, Mr. Munn chief clerk In the passenger department. The circular announcing the new appointments is Issued by H. R. McCullough, third vice president of the Chicago Northwestern railway and in charge of traffic matters. No provision Is made for General Passenger Agent Bu chanan in this circular, both freight and passenger Jurisdiction being combined under Mr. Kuhn, who haa been general freight agent. In the operating department exact titles are not yet published. This department Is In direct charge of President Marvin Hughltt, who has been ill for ten days, and has not yet Issued his circular on thla mat ter. Mr. Bldwell's statement conveys the general Information, save as to the titles he and Mr. Hughes will have. Mr. Bldwell w(ll probably be made an assistant to Gen ' eral Manager Gardner and Mr. Hughes dl ' vision superintendent In charge of- the Ne braska and Wyoming division. Thus the three divisions of the Elkhorn line, the South Platte, the Eastern and the Black Hills divisions, are to be combined Into one division of the Northwestern. All lettering, advertising, stationery and trans portation will be changed immediately. The division will be an Integral part of the Northwestern line and will have no distin guishing mark from It. No change In the office forces will result. Staffs will remain as now and the same headquarters be occupied as now. They are far more commodious and dignified than the usual division headquarters In most places on almost any road. Railway Xotea and Personals. E.

Objection has been made by some lines to the proposition of the Chicago A North western railway to put colonist ratea in ffect to South Dakota and the Black Hills to go on sale from March 17 to 21. The remonstrance made ia that the section Is not an agricultural country, and there U no reason for offering one-way colonist ratea to It. NEW HEADGEAR AT CITY HALL Blearest and Prondest Variation on the German Yachting; Cap Appears. A new automobile cap has arrived at the City hall and has been declared the "thing" by the fashion dictators there. It is the biggest and proudest variation on the Ger- 'man yachting cap, made famous and popu lar by Mayor M cores and others. A man wearing one needs no umbrella . when It rains nor Panama In blistering sun, for the eaves of the cap project out like the halos In pictures of the saints. The roof of the crown pokes Its nose In the air toward the 'front at an angle of 46 degrees and with an Immense flare. Comptroller Westberg made the And the other day In a shop win dow.. Thirty seconds later he had one of the sky-pieces, though It cost him 13.60 In rash. Within two hours after he had worn It In the city hall and been duly congratu lated Councilman Trostler appeared under the tame kind of a lid. When he walked In on a meeting of the Advisory board a general sigh of admiration went up and "Billy" Coburn, City Engineer Rose water, Health Commissioner Ralph and many oth ers tried It on. Yesterday there was a plethora of automobile caps In the city hall. Their wearers declared enthusiastically that they would fit any kind of a face and asserted that at a special session In the mayor's office It had been declared that a city official didn't need to own an auto In Order to wear the haberdashery.

Owar Norfleet Cay ley rrummle David Klmer Frank Mlsqulth, Q. C, M. P..F.dward Karr Oordon Jayne, M. l Harry Calvin M me James P. Donnelly Lady Orreyed Nell MrEwen Mrs Cortelyou Adelaide Katon Colton Xllean Agnes Roslyn Rose Coghlan, as Taula Ray Paula Tanqueray In her best aspect Is not a very attractive person, particularly to people who have old fashioned notions on certain points of personal behavior and re sponsibility, and the peculiar attributes of her character that might appeal to those who affect the "modern" Ideas of social existence are hardly those that Rose Cogh lan in her mature years Is capable of giv ing their best expression. So, In a word, the one-night engagement of Miss Coghlan in the Arthur Wing Plnero exposition of an admitted fact may be classed as both an artistic and a social failure. Some two or three hundred people braved the storm to attend the performance, but these were neither responsive to the efforts of the actress or greatly moved by her anguish of soul. Borne, In fact, were sufficiently dense of understanding as to actually snicker at lines that might have sounded funny to a thoughtless person, but which were Intended to represent a longing born of desperation or the despairing admission of an Inexorable fact. This lack of sym pathy and understanding on the part of the audience had Its reflex effect on the com pany, with a very obvious result. Miss Coghlan shows plainly the flight of years. Even at the best she was never by nature or training fitted for the part of the woman who tried to break down that barrier erected long ago against the sister who has sinned. Mr. Plnero merely gave more extended expression to a social axiom In writing "The Second Mrs. Tanqueray," and while some actresses have undertaken to make the part a plea for the forgive ness of the woman. Miss Coghlan merely succeeds In making plain the utter hope lessness of her situation. From any stand point the piece is not especially Inspiring, and with such Interpretation as It had last night It becomes positively depressing. In some respect Miss Cogblan's support Is as unfortunate In conception of the In tention of the play as she Is In her ls terpretatlon of the leading role. For ex ample, Mr. Ritchie, who has the part of Aubrey Tanqueray, admits his defeat be fore the first shot Is fired in the battle. According to his Idea of the role, Tanque ray knew he was making a blunder, but refused to withdraw even while he had an opportunity, and persisted In going ahead to what he was convinced could only bring misery to him. The real Tanqueray bad some sort of Quixotic notion that hi would win In time but the Ritchie Tanqueray fails to disclose this at any time. David Elmer as Caley Drummle, the hard-headed, cynical man of the world, who really loved his friend, seemed to be the only one with a real good notion of what was expected of him. The engagement was for one night only. FOOD PROTECTION The Circuit Court of the t ailed States Decldea In Favor of the In-er-seal Package. A decision far-reaching In Its effect and of Interest to all lovers of pure food, has Just been handed down by Judge Adams In the circuit court of the United States. The suit In question was brought against the Union Biscuit company for Infringement on the In-er-seal package, controlled ex clusively by the National Biscuit company, for the protection of biscuit and crackers against dust, moisture, odor and germs. In deciding against the Union Biscuit company Judge Adams says: "The proof abundantly shows that prior to the Invention of the patent the old paper cartons or boxes were inadequate to the de mands of the service required of them; that their contents deteriorated rapidly in sub stance and flavor; that they were subjected to the baneful effects of the air, moisture and dust. Since the Introduction of the box of the patent a radical change has taken place. This box has been found equal to the climatic and other local conditions In all parts of the country, from New Orleans to New York, from Florida to Minnesota and from California to Massachusetts. The uni form testimony from all these regions Is to the effect that the contents of the box are preserved in their original freshness and flavor. "The whole testimony In my opinion clearly shows that the box of the patent materially facilitates the distribution of In expensive food products to the consumer and at the same time lessens the cost and enhances the Intrinsic value of such prod ucts." Judge Adams' full decision against the in fringement not only shows the great Im portance of the In-er-seal package, but Is so broad and conclusive as to prevent any further violation of the rights of the Na tional Biscuit company.

The United States has no money available for the payment of the transportation of the troops and the extent of the demonstration will depend to a large extent upon the funds voted by the exposition management for the purpose.

' The Western Association of General Pas senger Agents will hold Its session at Hot Springs, Ark., March 6, and a large num ber of the Jobbers of Omaha and towns on the Missouri and Mississippi rivers are making arrangements to be present to pro test against the change In the' excess bag gage rates. ' These rates were to have gone Into effect March 1, but their effective ness was postponed one month In order to permit the Jobbers to show cause why they should not be enforced. It is expected that at the meeting there will be at least 150 Jobbers from Omaha, St. Joseph, Kansas City, St. Taul, Minneapolis and other west ern cities, each loaded with arguments as to why the rate should not be changed. Said an Omaha jobber: "If this new rate ts enforced It will cause the establishment of a hack line paralleling every railroad line In the west. The new rate is excessive only as it applies to short distances, and the towns are so close together in Iowa, Ne braska and the neighboring states tha by a little judicious division of time a man can make two or more of them In a day. He can drive the six or seven miles Inter vening and carry his sample cases cheaper than be can carry them by train It the new ratea are enforced, and this will certslnly be done by those houses which carry large lines of samples."
