U. P. Places Order
for 80 Engines
of Latest Types
55 Locomotives, Designed in
Omaha, Are Powerful
Machines To Be Used
on Crack Trains.
In the face of the present busi
ness uncertainty, the Union Pacific
railroad last night announced the
placing of an order for 80 locomo
tives to cost $5,500,000. - Fifty-rWe
pf these engines are of a new de
sign and will be the most powerful
high-speed locomotives ever built
The design was made by the Union
Pacific mechanical engineering staff
in Omaha, The remaining 25 will
be of the heaviest type of locomo
tives now in use, but will not be as
powerful at high speed as the
Omaha designed machines.
Some of the new high-speed lo
comotives will be placed in service
between Omaha and Denver and
will make the run between these two
points without change. The present
runnine distance of an ordinary lo
comotive is 150 miles, as compared
with a running capacity of 500 miles
or more of the newly ordered en
gines. Other new locomotives will
be' placed in-service between Salt
Lake City and Los Angeles, Chey
enne and Ogden and on the Oregon-
Washington lines in Oregon.
Work on the new locomotives will
begin immediately, and delivery will
be made in October and November.
As soon as the locomotives are
completed thev will be placed on
the Overland Limited, Los Angeles
Limited, Qmaha-Colorado Special,
Oreeon-Washington Limited and
other crack trains of the system.
The new locomotives are intended
to haul heavy transcontinental
trains at a speed of from 50 to 60
i;vles an hour up grades over which
locomotives now in use make but 25
to 3d miles per hour.

"Reunification is illusory unless

Conferees Begin Work
Upoh Tariff Measure
Washington, Aug. 24. Shelving!
the American valuation question for
the time being, at least, the six re
publican conferees of the senate and
house began their task of composing
the 2,436 differences between those
two bodies on the administration
tariff bill. The valuation question was
discussed only briefly and there was
no indication when it would come up
for a decision.
Members of the conference dis
closed, however, that the American
valuation as originally written into
the house bill, was receiving little if
any consideration. The plan under
discussion was the basing of ad
valorem tariffs on the wholesale sell
ing price of the imported article in
the American market. Adoption of
this plan was urged on the conferees
by Senator Oddie, republican, Ne
vada. He said it would remove the
administration difficulties presented
by the original proposal and at the
same time prevent "abuses" growing
out of the under valuation of im
ports. Resolution to Oust
