That nearly fifty of the industrial workers of the world arrested here have admitted they were trying to overthrow the United States government Is a statement contained In a report which the California au thorities will send to the immigration bureau at Washington. Lowell, Mass. More than 1.000 tex tile operatives in this citv have lolned the ranks of the 2,000 strikers who are demanding a greater wage in crease than that granted by the manu facturers.

ML To Them Such Rapid Traveling Seem ed Almost Beyond Possibility, Much as Traffic of the Air Appears Today. If the ghost of Horace Greeley were to come wandering back across the old Cattaraugus hills to this town, where he once worked as a Jour neyman printer, it would not only witness changes in conditions, but would marvel, in the face of those conditions, at some of the things his nimble fingers set in the office of the old time Cattaraugus Freeman and Lodl Messenger, says a Gowanda (N. Y.) correspondent In giving a brief resume of rail road progress, a report tells of the advancement in carrying mails from a speed of seven miles per day, twenty years before that date, up to nine miles per hour at the date of the re port. Then comes this naive state ment: "Attempts are making to force it up to ten miles an hour, but at anything beyond this, to a cer tainty, horsepower falls us. How, then, shall we find terms adequate to express the value of a discovery which carries us from ten to twenty or thirty miles an hour?" Speaking of the expenses of rail road maintenance, the report men tions a day's cost of a train upon the Manchester railroad. This was in England, and, of course, English money. "The hire of the engine man, four shillings; fireman, two shillings and six pence; coal, three shillings and four pence; oil, one shilling. To tal, ten shillings and ten pence sterling." At every point in this old report one finds facts of great interest to one liv ing in the present day. when air traffic brings up similar comments. At that time the Freeman and Mes senger was published by G. N. Starr, with weekly issue and subscription price of $2.50 a year. In clubs of twelve, the cost was brought down to $1.25. Advertising went by the square inch. Instead of by column- inch as now, and the rate was "$1 per square, with liberal discount to those who advertise-by the year." Even so far along as 1851, when the New York & Erie railroad went through Dayton, four miles away, newspaper methods were somewhat different from now. In an obscure place on the inside pages of a Go wanda paper was a short notice of the passing through of President Millard Fillmore, with Daniel Web ster, secretary of state, the remainder of the cabinet, Governor Washington Hunt of New York and railroad offi cials. Over this was the head: "Hor rible Casualty." At the bottom of the article it said that two young men. Franklin Peacock and Ebenezer Hen ry, were badly and perhaps fatally in jured by the premature explosion or bursting of a cannon fired in salute to the party. The following week, in the editorial notices, the death of young Peacock was mentioned. So do times and newspapers change. Buffalo Express. Plan Monster Terminal. The Canadian Pacific Railway is planning a new terminal for through freight which will cost about $7,000, 000. This line is said to have at Win nipeg the largest car yard in the world. There are 132 miles of track, with accommodations for upward of 3,000 cars. Engineers are 'making plans for a clearing yard with accom modations for 5,000 cars. COLD WEATHER AND METALS Scientists Assert Temperature Makes 'No Difference, but Railroad Men Disagree. Broken rails and broken axles hare caused many accidents this winter, with its unusually low temperature, yet certain scientists who are report ed to be high authorities concerning strength of material insist that cold does not cause metal to become brit tle, and that the idea that such is the case is a popular fallacy. Among the scientists holding these views are Styffe, Fairbain, Klrkaldy. Webster, the United States government com mission, and others: but they have against them all the practical men who have to handle tools or material in zero weather. It is no superstition that induced a wood chopper to warm his ax before beginning work on a frosty morning; and it is the teachings of experience that induces the trackman to lighten his blows on his cflld chisel when the temperature is low, and be knows it is not necessary to cut so deeply into the rail to be broken as it would be if the day were warm. Civil engineers, as a rule, have insisted that temperature makes no difference to the resisting power of metals, not withstanding that the popular voice has always maintained that metals break more readily in cold than in warm weather. The correctness of the popular belief concerning metal getting brittle when cold- was vindi cated by tests made by a member of the British Institution of Civil En gineers some years ago. A series of drop tests were made on axles kept artificially in a temperature of zero and on other axles of the same kind kept at 100 Fahrenheit. The results were that the axles tested warm ex hibited an average of 58 per cent, more resisting power than those tested at the lower temperature. Chicago Tribune. WILL REPLACE WOODEN TIE Railroads Quick to See Possibilities of New Concrete "Sleeper," Re cently Devised. A struggling Californian named George Gates, who is 70 years of age, has sold to a syndicate of eleven of the greatest railway systems of the United States, for three and a half millions sterling, the patent rights to a concrete railway tie or sleeper, in vented by him. The new concrete sleeper is considered the greatest rail way invention since the airbrake. It is a composition of substances which afford extraordinary resilience and durability. A single machine can turn them out at the rate of 3,500 a day. Gates is a veteran of the Civil war and has had a hard fight with poverty during his career as an inventor. He proposed to spend a portion of the money now received in perfecting and Introducing another invention styled by him a "continuous rail." Of the remainder the bulk will be placed in trust for the benefit of his wife and relatives generally. For the present Gates lives in a modest cottage in San Jose, Cal. Sunday Magazine.

A cooking school for cooks has been established in the dining car depart ment of the Southern Pacific Railroad company. PERFECTED BLOCK SIGNALS WHAT is called the block signal shows tbe railroad engineer whether tbe way ahead is clear or blocked. In tbe modern block system of signals used on so many of the railroads the movements of a train are actually controlled by the movement of another through the operation of these sig nals. Here again electricity plays a wonderful part. How the Dimes Grow Wonderful how easy it is to break a dollar and spend it a dime at a time.
