Within the last few days the American
express company has attached a car to
the fast mail train on the Chicago, Bur
lington & Quincy road. The railway
mail clerks do not take kindly to the
scheme. They say the fast mail train is
a government train, and should not have
a private business attached to it. The
express car is run ahead of the mail
coaches and is the cause, the clerks say,
of their missing numerous pouches here
tofore reliably caught on the fly. The
reason stated is that the express car
causes a suction that displaces the hang
ing pouch before the mail coach reaches
it. It is thought by those interested that
the experiment of running this express
car on the fast mail train will be discon
tinued very soon. Omaha Herald.
