Engineers .Under' Constant Strain.
In the hearing before the arbitration
committee whicE is hearing the demand
of eastern locomotive engineers for
more pay, Dean Wood engineer op the
twentieth century limited on the New
York Central said he makes the run be
tween Syracuse and Albany, 148 miles,
in 162 minutes, including slowdowns.
He added that he made as high as
seventy-five miles an hour on straight
track. In that 148 miles, ho said he
passed 151 block signals, all of which he
had to see.
Wood said he was not on the fast
train through choice, but because he
was assigned to it. He said he worked
twelve hours every other day and was
paid $186 per month. Asked by Chief
Stone what danger he most feared .-iri'
making fast runs he said the great
danger lies in the buckling of a freight
train on an adjoining track.
C. N. Gallagher, engineer of a fast
passenger train on the Boston & Maine,
said he ran from White River junction
to Springfield, Uasa., and that there
were 270 signals on the 123 miles of
track. He said he was prid $5.12 1-12
per trip, or about $163 a month.
Cattle Shortage Everywhere.
Lincoln Journal: It is as J H. Ed
misten writes from Lincoln county,
the price of cattle is going up and the
number going down. Tho average value
of per head of all American cattle in
1900 was $21.78, while in 1910 it had
climbed to 26.81. Meanwhile the jium
ber in the country had fallen nearly
nine per cent. It is not a Lincoln
county or a Nebraska or a range county
phenomenon, this decrease in cattle.
Missouri lost more heavily than Ne
braska, The west as a whole lost more
heavily than the cast. The country is
going qut of the cattle business and
beef Is apparently not long for the
family of small means. Yet because
of the cost of grain, of the power of
ine pacKers or ior some other reason
there is no sign that higher prices are
tempting people back to the land and
the cattle growing .Mr, Edmisten pleads
