VAGRANTS MUST BREAK ROCK
Railroad Will Put Tramps Who Dc~T
Pay on Stone Piles to Make
Ballast.
Omaha. Neb.—While the passage of
the Hepburn bill put an end to rail
road passes, it did not stop the army
of tramps from riding free The
T'nion Pacific officials, however, have
evolved a plan to stop Mr. Tramp's
free rides.
Recently, at all division points and
at most of the large towns on the line,
the Union Pacific hauled in carloads
of stone. It was reported that this
was for track and yard improvement,
but, in fact, the stone piles are for
| the purpose of supplying places tc
work for men who steal rides on
brake rods and on the blind baggage
The company has declared its in
tention of trying to bring about the
enforcement of the state vagrant law.
and. in the future, when a man is
caught stealing a ride on the T'nion
Pacific lines in Nebraska, he will be
carried to the first town where there
is a stone yard, where his arrest will
be caused, and he will be taken be
fore the justice of the peace. If con
victed of being a vagrant, he will prob
ably be sentenced to from 10 to 30
days breaking rock.
The company expects to make
enough out of the work of vagrants to
pay the towns the cost of boarding
the prisoners while serving sentence
The broken rock will be used for bal
last.
