Buriingtcn Road Installs It cn Lin
One dispatcher at the Burlington
headquarters now wears telephone har
ness; one wire c hief occasionally dons
telephone harness to test out lines and
keep the wires working; operators be
tween Pacific Junction and Ashland,
Omaha and Lincoln, and Plattsmouth
and Omaha, are taking orders from the
dispatchers by telephone and the real
test of the telephone in the east end
of the Lincoln division of the Burling
ton, as a successor to the Morse instru
ment has begun. Opinions of railroad
men as to its successful competition
with the Morse instrument differ, but
many telegraphers declare that the
phone will never win out in the test.
They claim in the handling of train or
ders and railroad messages where forms
and codes are in use the Morse in-
sirumer.i is superior.
On the other hand supporters of the j
telephone idea point to many alleged
advantages. They declare that before
the telephone has been m actual use i
in the transmission of train orders one
year that a system for its use will have
been worked out, the operators and dis
patchers will have been educated to its
use, and the work will be done with
'ess loss of time and with more satis
faction to all concerned than it has ever
been done with the Morse instrument.
in telephone dispatching great care
is taken to give orders correctly, and
orders must be leper ted to the dis
patcher just as he gives them. In giv
ing and repeating train orders numbers
are pronounced and later spelled out.
In fact almost the same procedure is
foil wed where the telegraph is used.
When a dispatcher wants a station
vi pushes in a button labelled with the
telegraph call of that station and rings
a bell. That rings the bell in the ollice
called but in no other efTices. It is said
these bells are so loud that the agent

Is Gaod In His Line.
F. 1'. Fowler who has been
the city for several days auctioning oir
the Weidman fire loss stock, has been
making a complete and glittering suc
cess of the efforts. As is well known
Capt. Fowler is one of the experts in
his line and his work at the Weidman
store has been far above the average
of that usually witnessed. Capt. Fowler
possesses that useful adjunct of the
auctioneer known popularly as the
"gift of. gab, " and he has used it in
these sales to excellent advantage. He
is a talker who is fluent and at the
same time says things which pleases
his hearers' ear and interests them in
the goods he has to sell. As he is an
auctioneer of many years standing it is
useless in this brief article to attempt
to do him justice. He should be heard
to be appreciated.
UNABLE TO LO
CATE HIS WILL
J. A. Connor's Paper Missing From
The following from the Lincoln Eve
ning News relates to the estate of the
well known, former Plattsmouth citizen,
J. A. Connor. From this it appears
that Mr. Connor died quite well fixed
financially. The heirs to the estate
are quits well known' in this city:
"Unable to find the will of Joseph A.
Connor, which it is known was execut
ed last June, the heirs of Mr. Connor
have gone into county court and asked
that letters of administration be issued
to the two half-sisters and his niece on
the theory the will was destroyed by
Mr. Connor before he died. Mr. Con
nor left an estate worth more than
$460,000, which will be divided, in the
absence of a will, among the two half
sisters, Ellen J. O'Connor and May J.
Haynes, and the niece, Mary C. Sperry,
and Miss Grace Connor.
Mr. Connor is known to have execut
ed a will last December. In June he
had Judge Duffie draw a second one,
revoking the first and appointing Al
fred Millard executor. It is this second
will that cannot be found now, although
a careful search has been made for it
among his papers.
Judge Leslie, at a hearing Monday,
announced he wonld appoint the three
heirs at law to administer the estate,
and if the will turned up before the
estate was closed, it could be probated i

It was supposed the will would be
found among some papers Mr. Connor !
kept locked in his desk, but when the
package was' opened no will was there. I

Miss Grace Connor will receive by a
stipulation appearing on the petition
one-fourth of the estate. She has liv- j

years though never formally adopted. !

steel. They are located seventy-five
feet above the ground and their chang
ing require some skillful work on the
part of the men employed to do it. A
swinging scaffold will have to be erect
ed and the work conducted from the
top of the lofty structure. It is Mr.
Weber's intention if possible, to secure
the consent of the company to repaint
the pipe, it having been some eight or
nine years since it was painted. This
work can be done easier now while the
scaffold is in place than later when it
would be necessary to rebuild it. The
plates which are to be replaced are
those bent in the windstorm several
years ago. The plates were straighten
ed at the time but the process of
straightening them left them with
creases in them which have accumulat
ed rust causing them to break.

morning for their home in St. Joseph,
Mo. Mr. Main is ninety-three years of

have left for their home with regret.
They are the parents of Mrs. Smith
