logical result. They flguro that in the
plans the Union Pacific will take over the
old Central Pacific from Ogdcn to San
Francisco, and that the line from Omaha
to tho coat and' numerous branches will
all ba operated from this city. None of
these men expec. to see the headquarters
In San Francisco entirely abandoned.
They flguro that a general ngtnt and
force largo enough to take care ot tho
business will be maintained there.
This, they say, will. mean the removal
of from 300 to COO persona to the head
quarters here. Most ot these clerka aro
men and a large proportion of them have

the removal Ib complete, a population of
J.toO to 1,500 will be added to this city.

that it was Impossible to get all the

while tho thief tried to get Into the safe,

Had stock In the safe, which would

Detective Tom ItlnK. who Is working
on the case, seems to think that the job
was dono by a professional thief. The '

The burglar took from COO to 600 solid

fifteen diamond rings seven dozen scarf

Masonic emblems, eighteen feet of Ger

of Jewelers' gold findings."
