Having purchased the S. H. Desch Grocery and
Meat Market, we have decided to run the same
on a CASH BASIS. We think that by so
doing we can sell First-Class Goods for less
money than we could by doing a credit busi
ness. Accordingly, after August 17th, we will
sell FOR CASH ONLY. You are invited to call
and get prices.

New Organization
Railroad Employes
A local branch of the American Rail
road Employes and Investors Associa
tion was organized at Alliance the
evening of August 5th. This Associa
tion Is composed of railroad employes,
and below is given the principles of
the Association:
Its purpose shall be, by all lawful
methods, to cultivate and maintain be
tween its members such a spirit of
mutual interest and such concern on
the part of all of them for the welfare
and prosperity of American railroads
as will best promote their successful
and profitable operation, for the bene
fit alike of their employes, Investors
and the public.
To encourage, by every proper
method, cordial and friendly feeling on
the part of the public toward American
railroads and their business.
To publicly provide means for obtain
ing consideration and hearing from all
legislative bodies and commissions em
powered to enact laws, rules and reg
ulations affecting the conduct and op
eration of railroads.
To do whatever lawful things may
be necessary in order to secure a fair
return alike to capital and to labor in
vested in American railroads, with due
regard at all times to efficient service,
fair treatment and safety to the public.
This Association shall at no time be
used for partisan political
nor shall it take any part in controver
sies, if any, which may arise between
railroad employes and railroad officials.
Its membership shall consist of rail
road employes, railroad investors, or
their representatives.
Seventy-four members joined at the
time of organization and it is expected
that nearly every railroad man in Alli
ance will become a member. This
Association is a National affair and has
a large membership throughout the
United States. The following officers
were elected:
H H. Giles, Fres; G. A, Reid, Vice
Pres.; II. E. Gantz, Sec'y and Treas.
Executive Commltte, H. M. DeWitt,
J M. SchSrk, A. V. Gavin, S. Wilburn,

Locating Breaks in Telegraph Wires
When a telegraph wire is broken or
damaged, say, several hundred miles away,
how does the operator, sitting in his office,
know exactly where the accident occurred?
The explanation is simple. It requires,
as everyone knows, considerable force to
send electricity through a wire. The
longer the wire, the greater, of course,
must be the force required. This force of
resistance is measured in units, called by
electricians "ohms". Let us suppose that
a wire between a New York office and a
point 200 miles away has broken some
where. The telegrapher knows that when
the wire was intact there was required
enough force to overcome, say, 2800 ohms
to produce a current, or 14 ohms per mile.
He now finds that he can send current
wilh a force required for only 700 ohms.
Dividing 700 by 14, he finds that the break
in the wite is 50 miles from his end,
It is expected that upwards of
five thousand railroad employes
will march in the big "'Railroad
Day" parade in Denver on Aug
ust 20th. Sterling and McCook
are arranging to send a good
sized delegation to Denver to
1 take part in the celebration and
tnere will probably be a repre
sentative party from Alliance.
The Burlington officials have
announced that all employes who
wish to go will be granted free
transportation and also that very
low rates will be in effect for the
benefit of the general public.
After the street parade in the
morning, the crowd will adjourn
to "Lakeside", the big amuse
ment park, where a basket pic
nic will be enjoyed. A program
of field sports, including a ball
game and tug of war, has been
arranged for in the afternoon
and and in the evening Mr. P. H.
Morrisey, former head of the
Brotherhood of Railway Train
men, will make an address in the
Theatre at "Lakeside", together
with Hon. J. P. Shafroth, gov
ernor of Colorado, and Mayor
Speer of Denver.
I Prom the amount of interest
displayed by both the officials
and men of the different roads
rnnning into Denver, and from
the fact that all shops, general
offices, and freight houses will
be closed on that day, "Railroad
Day", promises to be the great
est gatherrng of railroad em
ployees ever held in the enire
