No damage. Master Mechanic Archibald went out to Denver , Wednesday , returning on the Golden Gate special , this morning. The second Golden Gate special went through , this morning. It was a solid Pull man train , similar to the first one. It. B. Simmonds and C. T. Watson made sad work among the mud-hens in the vicinity of Cambridge , last Saturday. The boys were loaded for duck , too. Roadtnaster Rogers extended his jurisdic tion of inspecting low joints and boss jerries on the line vacated by C. A. Parsons for a short time Akron to Denver. L. M. May , who has held the position of route agent on the B. & M. between Omaha and this city since August , 1887 , died sudden ly at his home in Falls City , Tuesday of last week. \V. S. Perry , supt. bridges , made a tour of inspection from McCook to Denver , Friday. Alf. Williams , civil engineer , was also a pas senger from McCook on same train , he hav ing been caught in the shuffle during the late curtailing. The annual report of the C. , B. & Q. , was given out , yesterday : Gross earnings , § 27- 725,966 ; operating expensesS17,53S,455 , taxes , § 1,231,243 ; rentals , § 206,077 ; interest on bonds , § 5,491,992 ; sinking funds , § 765,492 ; total , § 25,193,261 ; leaving net earnings , § 2,532,704. E. Budd , a workman employed at the Erie railroad shops at Jersey City has invented a locomotive which it is expected will make over eighty miles an hour. The works are similar to those of a ferry boat. An engine is being constructed by the company , in fact is almost completed and will be tested in a few days. The wheels make three revolu tions to one exhaust. No. 1 leaving McCook at 12:10 , Friday , April 3d , made the fastest trip to Denver ever made by any train , taking all draw backs in to consideration. Engineer Bailey made the run of 143 miles in 3 hours and 15 minutes , including 3 stops , which was an average of 44 miles per hour allowing 5 minutes for each stop , which is a low average , the actual time was 48 miles per hour. It is the best run ever made by No. 1 between McCook and Akron. Engineer Bartlett's run of 112 miles in 2 hours and 45 minutes was also an extra good one , considering the restriction to mak ing up time on the first 24 miles where the advantage is great owing to down grade. Had he been allowed to make up time over the entire division his average time , includ ing one stop for water , would have been 2 hours and 30 minutes , or 4G > miles per hour after deducting 5 minutes for a stop. A very good average when contending witliC broken springs on one side of engine. The actual time ( all stops deducted and estimating 5 minutes for each stop ) was 255 miles at the rate of 45 miles per hour. Taking into con sideration the grade no better run was ever made in the west by a regular passenger train of 7 cars. Jimmie Burns and Brakeman - man Keim held on to the rear end as con ductor and 1st mate , respectively. Children Cry for Pitcher's Castoria.1 PEOPLE YOU KNOW. Citizens and Visitors Briefly Mentioned.
