Rock Island to Meet Burlington in
Service From Chicago to Denver !
"Thirteen years ago," said a Bur
lington trainman yesterday, " The
Burlington had one through train
each vay between Lincoln and Den
ver. Now t'ae company runs three
through trains each way and
the local service is taken
up by ether trains as far
west as Wray, Colo." The service on
other through lines has been im
proved and extended corresponding
ly,' and the tarffic secured seems to
warrant the trains put on.
'"Greater even than the improve
ment made by giving more frequent
service is that made in equipiuetit
and capacity of trains. The roads
are now running chair cars that
carry almost as many people as some
of the old trains would carry. All
through trains are equipped with
the best cars that can be furnished
by the builders, and there Is real
competition in equipment and ser
ice, even if the day of rate cutting
Among the railroad men the action
of the Rock Island in putting on
trains to duplicate Burlington trains
Xos. 1 and 6 has aroused much In
terest. Soon after the Burlington
announced that new Denver trains,
to be known as Nos. 9 and 10, would
be put on, the Rock Island announc
ed that new Denver trains to be
known as Nos. 23 and 26 would be
put cn. The new trains on the Bur
lington duplicate Rock Island trains
Nos. 7 and 8 between Chicago and
Denver. The retaliatory act of the
Rock Island was to announce Den
ver trains running on practically the
same time, as that of Burlington
Nos. 1 and 6, with equipment of the
same pattern. Further, the Rock
Island will enter Into competition
with the Burlington on Lincoln
unicago business by putting cn
again Nos. 13 and 14 leaving Lincoln
fifteen minutes earlier than that
train. Further the Rock Island Is
to have the fastest time that has
ever been made by that road between
Lincoln and Omaha, one hour and
forty minutes east bound. The Rock
Island Is three miles longer between
Lincoln and Omaha that the Burling
ton, and is further handicapped by
being compelled to run over Union
Pacific rails from Albright to the
Union Station In Omaha, while the
Burlington enters over its own rails
and keeps everything out of the way
of its passenger trains.
During the Bryan campaign last
year the Rock Island ran these two
trains between Lincoln and Chicago
and then pulled them off Just about
tne time people began to get ac
quainted with their time. It was
said that after they were pulled off
patrons of the road went to the de
pot to use the afternoon train from
Lincoln, only to learn that it had
been pulled off.
The Burlington change sets No. 1
the westward bound limited, back to
very nearly Its old time. It will
hereafter leave Lincoln for the west
at 7:30 a. m. It will continue to
make the run without touching Oma
ha. The midnight passenger, No, 9
to the west, will pass through Oma
ha, while No. 10, east bound, will
go over the main line east avoiding
Burlington No. 4, leaving Lincoln
at 7:20 a. m. for Omaha and the
east, will not run between Lincoln
and Omaha on Sundays. State
Hatlsmouth Has to Bow to the In
evitableScores of Citizens
After reading the public state
ment of this representative citizen of
riattsmouth given below, you must
come to this conclusion: A remedy
which cured years ago, which has
kept the kidneys In good health since,
Van be relied upon to perform the
name work In other cases. Read this:
J. W. Hickman, Oak street, Platts
mouth, Neb., says: "I will never
cease to praise Doan's Kidney Pills,
as they were of such great benefit to
me several years ago. My kidneys
and back were a source of constant
suffering and I was subject to at
tacks of lumbago that came on with
out the least warning. The simplest
movement was painful and I was
annoyed more or less by the Irregu
lar passages of the kidney secretions.
1 read so much about Doan's Kidney
Mils, that I finally procured a box
from Goring & Co. s drug store. I
was so gratified with the results of
their ue that I publicly endorsed
them lu 1906 and at this time, I
h nrtlly renew that statement. I hope
t!iat other kidney sufferers will profit
ry my experience."

Fine Musical Treat.

they did wonderfully well. Consid

many older bands. They played sev

much applause. Later they played
at the Woodman meeting the boys all

they added much to tho pleasures of
the occasion. They surely have de

Kansas City, Mo., May 26. Jas
Sharp, known as "Adam God," on
trial for murder for his part in the
fatal religious riots here last winter
furnished a sensation in tho crimln
al court today when he arose In hi
place at the prisoner's bench and ac
cused a minister of having entered
his cell and of abusing him.
"Your honor," declared Sharp, ad
dressing Judge Latshaw, " I want
to have a man arrested for coming
into my cell and abusing me." The
Judge gave respectful hearing to the
prisoner, although he had become ac
customed to Sharp's outbreaks, and
the latter continued:
"This minister called me a liar and
a hypocrite and abused me, although
I was not talking to him.".
"Who , was he?" the Judge asked.
"There he sits," declared Sharp,
dramatically, pointing to Rev. Job
Lyon, an evangelist who frequently
preaches to the prisoners, and who
happens to be a witness for the state
In tho present case.
A consultation between Judge, at
torneys and the prisoner ensued. It
showed that there was little basis
for Sharp's charges, and Judge Lat
shaw finally said:
"You will be given every pro
tection of the law, Mr. Sharp. You
are entitled to a fair trial, a fair
chance, and I will hop thnt you get
