InKtead of l.OnO diners as t first ex pected, from 1.3U0 to 1.500 men will dine to rethor at the Auditorium the evening of December 30. the occasion being the Com- merclal Club's Traveling Men' dinner. j The dinner Immediately after being pro- pored deteiupvd into so big on affair that: it at once became necessary to syslemiie , with a much detail as a census, all ar-i rangements, including invitations and re-1 punaes. I Accordingly the Commercial club besides letters has sent out regular V.anks.to be filled, the title being "firm name, traveling men, hea.la of firm, department heads and credit men, cky salesmen." Below the sub head "traveling men" thirty-five or more lines had to be drawn, for many Jobbers and manufactuiera have this number of commercial travelers representing them. Invitation to Commercial club members, not traveling men, or heads of firms r otherwise above scheduled, will not go out until Monday, for as the dinner is primarily and all the time a traveling man affair, it has been necessary to Invite and hear from all such before inviting anyone else, because even In the Auditorium accommo dation are limitod. This faot testifies to the number of traveling men who will be guest that night. Mnny Meetings Held. Meetings of &ui)-committees are being held dally at the Commercial club, two or three oommlttees a day, because the work of preparing menus and programs and every thing else for so gigantic a dinner la really tremendous. The last circular letter ent out by the general comrnliee on arrangements warns against confuHliin arid tell of the necessity of prompt responses. The letter reads thus: "As already advised, the price per plate 1 $2.00, each house to be responsible for Its reservations. The affair will be held in the Auditorium on a big scale and, from pres ent indications, will break all previous rec ords for magnitude and enthusiasm. A good dinner will be served. There will not be much speaking, but what there is, will be worth listening to. The entertainment com mlttee 1 busy, but silent on what they are planning. "If you would avoid later embarrassment to yourself and the committee, mall blank to reach the Commercial club not later than December 23. With a probable at tendance of from 1,200 to 1,600, the com mittee must know by that time how many to plan for. "EDGAR ALLEN, President. "DAVID COLK. Chairman Executive Committee."

A new system, which promise to pro duce an experienced railroad man, who will know every department of the road's business, 1 being tried out by the Union Pacific. The plan teaches the young man what each department I doing, by placing him In It ome six month and insisting that he do real work there. No one under th rank of assistant super intendent I given this opportunity and even then It 1 entirely optional with th? individual whether he will learn of rail roading In this way of stick close to re position and hop for promotion. The scheme. In short. Is to glv an en- ; terprlsing employ a sort of college educa tion In the management ot a railroad' business; a training that will make him a capable manager and experienced In every depaitment. W. L.

He draw an assistant superintend ent' salary, but works a a track builder, shop man, audttor, office man In the freight, passenger, transportation and In all the many department and finally goes back and take up hi position wher he left It. He ha been over a year sometimes a year and a half In shifting around. H 1 now back in Just the same place where he was. before starting hi "experlenos tour," and drawing the sam salary. Pat he has a knowledge of hi business that would have taken him years to learn other wise and 1 said to be worth all that he has cost the railroad. He may leave the Union Pacific to take a better Job elsewhere, when, ot course, the training would be lout, but the road Is willing to take It chances on this and Say that one man well trained is worth a dosen with a (mattering.
