Chicago, fob. 3. Tho Atchison nr.d
tho Rock Island roads gave notice to
day to Chairman Caldwell of the
Western l'asaenffcr association that
beginning with next Sundny they
would reduce the first class passenger
rate between Chicago and Denver by
$o. the cut to bo operative in both
The announcement to tho chairman
was the sequence of a conference held
this morning between the general
passenger agents of tho Northwestern,
Burlington, Atchison and tho Rock
Island over tho fast trains which the
two former lines have announced be
tween Chicago and Denver. The At
chiton and tho Rock Island having
longer routes to Denver than th
other two roads cannot meet tho fast
time made by tho North western and
tho Burlington except at great ex
penso and inconvenience.
They therefore asked that an extra
fare bo charged on the new fast trains
and that they be used as 'limited
trains. To this request the Burling
ton and the Northwestern refused to
accede, savin"- that tho buinos
would not warrant them in charging
more than the regular fare. The Kock
Island and tho Atchison then asked
that the fast trains be taken olT, con
tending that the amount ef tho Colo
rado business at tho present time was
not of sufficient volume to warrant
any special train service, lnis re
quest was also refused, and then tho
Atchison and Rock Island announced
that there was nothing fur them to do
but to make a rate lower than offered
by the other two roads, and said that
on tho date on which the Burlington
and tho Northwestern inaugurated
their fast train service they would re
duce their rate between Chicago and
Denver bv $5.
The Burlington and tho Northwest
ern said they would meet any rates
that were made by the Atchison and
the Rock Island, and would slill keep
their fast trains in service.
As soon as the matter was reported
to unairman jaiawoii, no called a
meeting of all in terested lines for to
morrow to consider tho matter and see
if some settlemen t, could not bo reached
The trouble is certain to involve pas-
sengerates between Omaha and Chi
cago, and Kansas City and Chicago,
as well as the through rates to Den
ver, inasmuch as the fast trains of the
Burlington and tho Northwestern
will shorten their running time to
both of these cities.

Pulraan sleepingcars will bechartered
and may bo used during the entire

lie received by that time the excur
sion will bo carried on. If less than
forty are received, the trip will he de
elated off and all the money received
win no at once returned, n more
than forty applications are made the
forty first received will be assigned to
a car, and the others will be given a
second car if enough are received to
pay for it. Ut.less enough applica
tions ate received to pay for two cars,
the number in excess of forty will be
assigned berths in the regular sleeper,
and will have to go to hotels at points
where stops are made.

story, says the Omaha Bee. Mrs.!
Murry says that sho nnd a brother
named Albert Brister weraorphans at
the iige of five and that about a year
later her brother was stolen and she
has never seen him since. A few
weeks ago while visiting friends in
Bois City, Idaho, she was surprised
by receiving a letter from him. A
few days later she got another one.
Both were written iu this city. The
letters, however, failed to give his ad
dress, other than tho hotels at which
he wasstopping, and when she wrote to
these addresses she failed to find him.
Mrs. Murray would like to have the
police locate her brother.
