ciety demands that some concert
ed action be taken to curb it.
"The tramp class is not mere
ly confined to the mendicants who
travel from one point to another,
depending for sustenance on
charity bestowed from the kitchen
door, but embraces the murderer,
bank and train robber, house
breaker, pick pocket, and petty
thief, who adopt the guise as a
convenient protection to their ne
farious callings.
"The police do not furnish a
remedy when they order the
tramps to the railroad yards with
the surest ion that they get out
of town on the first train that
comes along. This merely unloads
the evil on the railroads and the
neighboring- city, town or village,
which in turn pass it on to the
next point.
"The railroads are great suff
ers from the (ramp evil, and while
they maintain an expensive ser
vice to police their property they
are unable, single-handed, to
cope with the situation, and for
scliish interests alone, they
should have the hearty co-opera-
and insures at all times every
pound of weight, including the
drivers, being carried on the
wheels. This gives us our light
draft and allows the wheels to
pass over rough ground without
in the least affecting the depth of
the furrow.
Seventh Furrow Wheel Control.
Automatic steering rod no
side thrust on tongue; adjustable
rear furrow wheel not affected b
horse motion.
Eighth Foot Lift.
Extremely high- double bear
ing adjustable to small boy or
large man conveniently located
and when bottoms are raised no
levers are in the way and it
comes just right to be used as a
step for the operator to reach the
Ninth Main Frame.

tion of the counties and municip
alities through which they pass.
If each city would maintain a
well-supplied rock pile and see to
it that these undesirables are es
corted to it on their arrival, it
would have a salutary elTect. A
farm of Free Masonry exists be
tween these travelers and the
news spreads quickly. Let, a
chain of cities and towns adopt
the rock pile plan and the tramps
will soon give that section a wide
berth. Counties could have many
good roads built by utilizing the
(ramp and at the same time ma
terially diminish his number.
"Texas has solv the problem
by the establishment of convict
farms, and now the tramp ques
tion is one. of the Lone Star
state's least troubles.
Poor Police Motto.
"The railroads bring in the
tramps, let the railroads take
(hem out is a poor police motto.
The railroads bring them because
they cannot help it and they lake
them out, often at the cost of hu
man life and heavy property loss.
Hardly a day passes but that
some employee of the railroad is
assaulted by ' tramps loitering
around stations or stealing rifles,
murders are no uncommon occur
rence. Railroad employees are
reputable citizens and they de
serve the same protection that is
given to other members of so
ciety. They do not get it when
desperadoes are turned loose to
battle with them in the darkness
in railroad yards ami on rapidly
moving freight trains. Many
costly wrecks, involving heavy
loss of life, are chargeable to
these knights of the road, and
public safety demands the adop
tion of methods to check the
growing menace. This can be
brought about by a proper co-operation
of the municipalities and
the railroads, who are more than
nnvioiK t o abate the danger and
are entitled to the proctection
which has long been denied them.
Some Tramps Worthy.
"It is not to be denied that
among the tramp class there are
many worthy objects of charily,
seeking an asylum among their
friends, and in these instances
the interstate commerce commis
sion provides that railroads may
carrv them to their destination
free of charge, and some of the
railroads are willing to do this.
It is only necessary for the city
officials to satisfy themselves that
the claimants are deserving and
the necessary transportation will
be forthcoming.
"Statistics show that in 1912
the railroads of the United States
killed 5.434. trespassers,, or thirty-nine
times the number of pas
sengers killed in train accidents
and seven times the total number
killed 'in train accidents. If a
trespasser is killed or injured on
a railroad, no matter how unjust
his claim may be there is usually
some unscrupulous lawyer on the
lookout. for a contingent fee and
the railroad is called upon to de
fend an expensive damage suit.
At everv session of every state
legislature a multiplicity of bills
are introduced to correct evils,
real and imaginary, inflicted by
the railroads on the public, but
an investigation of -the statutes
will show that the railroads are
denied the protection public safe
ty demands and that are afforded
other classes of property holders
"Certainly the railroads arc
entitled to public sympathy and
me active aia oi me siaie, coun
ties and cities -in -their effort to
eliminate the tramp evil, which is
manifestly, a mutual menace. The
Burlington railroad, for instance,
spends annually for police protec
tion $110,000, from which the
public receives many benefits, and
to which fund no taxpayer con
tributes one cent. The railroads
are doing their part to rid the
country of tramps and desper
adoes. Why not let the cities help
instead of hindering them in their
good work?
"Don't rush the tramp to the
railroad yards. Put him on the
rock pile. Sift the dangerous
criminal from the harmless but
useless mendicant."

New Bank Inspector Named Inter,
urban Buys New Cars.
Lincoln, Oct. 2. Combined freight
and passenger earnings on the Chi
cago. St. Paul, Minneapolis and Oma
ha road amounted to $1,975,9S9 during
the year ending June 30, 1913, accord
ing to a report just filed with, the
etate railway commission. This is an
Increase over last year, when the
same item showing a total of $1,959,-
158. Total operating expenses for the
fiscal year of 1913 amounted to $1,441,-
949 and for the year previous to $1,
337,582. This is the first road to make its
1913 report to the state regulating
body. Other reports are looked for
from time to time, all being due by
Nov. 1. The M. and O. spent in this
state for additions and betterments
the sum cf $C9,303 in cash and $332,-
SS3 in securities. Total taxes paid by
the road amounted to $100,575. Two
hundred and eight miles of main line
are operated In this state.
Want a Jobbing Center.
Traffic Commissioner Bell of the
Sioux City Commercial club and rep
resentatives of other interests in the
Iowa town called on the state railway
commission to urge careful attention
to revision of class freight rates under
moDosed eeneral order No. 19, which
makes a general reduction in this con
nection. They are fearful lest South
Sicux City, a Nebraska town, will be
discriminated against as a jobbing
center and that Omaha, now enjoying
the same rates as that place, will be
given a 10 per cent advantage under
the new order. Representatives of
the Commercial club will be here at
the rate hearings, Oct. 7, to look after
their interests.
Buy New Cars.
New equipment is soon to be put on
the Omaha. Lincoln and Beatrice m-
terurban road, which operates between
here and Bethany, according to an
nouncement by Manager Norton. This
6tep is looked upon as evidence that
rlflcials of the road are planning on
putting the line in tiptop snape ior
sale to the McKinley interests later
on. The Illinois concern tas lately
acquired the old Nebraska Traction
and Power company's properties ana
the purchase of the local line would
be a valuable adjunct in connection
of Omaha and Lincoln by an interur-
ban route.

Controversy Over Lands Within
Right ot Way.
Omaha. Oct. 2. Relative to the con
troversy over title to the lands within
the rieht of wav of the Union Pacific,
acting under orders of the executive
committee of the road, President A.
L. Mohler has issused a circular, set
ting forth the plans which the com
pany proposes to pursue. In this cir
cular. President Mohler says:
"It has been brought to the atten
tion of this company that a misappre
hension exists in some localities as to
the policy of the company concerning
the titles to lands held or claimed to
be held in private ownership within
the limits of the rights of way granted
to its predecessor companies by acts
of congress. The company intends
tn defend its title to the full extent f
the right of way so granted against
trespassers and persons claiming pos
session only by virtue of the operation
of statutes of limitation. But, not
withstanding the decisions of the Unit
ed States supreme court to the effect
that the title to the right of way was
of such a character that it could not
ho alienated bv the grantee, the com
pany does not intend to assert title to
any lands within the limits oi me
right of way granted by congress
which have voluntarily been conveyed
hv this comcanv or Its predecessor
companies, but intends to recognize
the validitv of all titles so acquired.
"In any case in which a property
owner, deriving title to land within
the limits of the right of way granted
by congress under conveyance of this
company or its predecessor companies,
rermirps or W ill be benefited by a con
firmation from this company of the
titio Intended to be conveyed by sucn
earlier deed of conveyance, a quit
claim deed will be given by this com
nanv. uoon Dayment only of a nominal
charge to cover the expense of pre-
narinsr and executing the deea.
"This company, however, reserves
tfco rltrlit to determine In eacn case
whether the facts bring the case with
in the policy hereby announced.
