' j Detectives Look Into ' " Attempt to Wreck' Grand Island Train Hastings, Neb.. Fel. 9. (Special Telegram.) Detectives arrived here tbday to investigate what is believed to have been a deliberate attempt Wednesday night to wreck the south bound St. Joseph & Grand Island railroad passenger train a mile and a half south of Edgar. A railroad tie was wedged tightly between the rails in such a manner as to make derailment practically a certainty. The pilot of the engine, however, split the tie-and the locomo tive remained on the track. The work was carefully done, the tie being so placed as not to attract the attention of the engineer whose first knowledge of the attempt came when he heard the engine strike the tie. The train was stopped and a careful search made which revealed no trace of would-be wreckers. State House Notes (From a Staff Correspondent.) Lincoln, Feb. ' . (Special.)

Navy recruit ing agents have been instructed to immediately enlist 25,000 additional men. While the current naval bill author ized a peace strength of 74,000 men, it carried appropriations for consid erably less than that number since the department had estimated that in the normal course of events not more than 10,000 recruits above the num ber necessary to replace men dis charged could be found. Officials have been encouraged by recruiting returns during the winter months, however, which have brought the actual strength up to nearly 58,000 men already. In the event of war probably the first act of the president will be to authorize the enlistment of the maxi mum war strength of 87,000.

In the War department steps arc under consideration tor hurrying or ganization, of the officers' reserve corps, Less than 1,000 men have been commissioned so far, although ap proximately 50,000 would be required for a volunteer army of 500,000 men. An official statement issued today calls attention to the classes of men eligible for commissions and urges that' "There is no reason why eligible men should hesitate to apply for commissions on account of being rusty or even deficient in technical military matters." It says personality and probable efficiency of the indi viduals are given greatest weight by examining . officers. The establish ment of examining boards in every city or town where a fair number of applicants come forward is now be ing considered.

FREMONT BOYS FIRST TO GO The actual work of mustering out the Fifth regiment started this morn ing with the examination of the Signal Corps of Fremont, ommanded by Cap tain .Ices. Army officers estimate that it will be at least fifteen davs, and possibly longer, before all the work necessary for the changing back of tne soldiers to guardsmen is complete. Although the Fifth did a great deal of its "paper work" while still on the border, army officers detailed to do the mustering out at Fort Crook said that it would all have to be done over again and under their supervision. One Suit to the Man. Predicting that the government and state would take away their clothing, officers of the recently returned regi ment have quietly passed the ward along to their men that they should not have on hand any more than the actual clothing they are now wearing, when state and armv officers are ready for inspection. Apparently the sol diers are taking advantage of the hint. as most of them have only the mini mum of clothing now on hand. "It's not right that the men should lose the clothes they paid for," said Colonel 1'aul, commanding officer. "If the government owes the state, its up lo the government to settle, but I can't sec why the men should be made to Slider in the deal." Only four cases of sickness are re ported at l-oi't Crook, all of which are of a minor nature. One of the sick men has indigestion, another rheumatism and the other two colds. To Curtail on Passes. An order issued to all captains Is that they should not issue any more passes to their men than possible, so that mustering out may not be inter fered with. When the regiment returned from the border it brought thirty-two horses. The horses were used by the signal corps and are to be turned over to that organization when mustered out. Sharp, secretary-treasurer of the Townsend Gun company, has recently been appointed captain in the quarter master's department of the Fifth resi dent and is now at Fort Crook, aid ing in tne checking up work.
