None but a most thoroughly equipped and
well managed railroad could have handled
the unprecedented amount of passenger
traffic of the B. & M. road the past three or
four days. It was simply astonishing that
so many trains following so close upon one
another could be handled so expeditiously
by the company. The boys at the station
here worked like Trojans and everything
ran along smoothly as if it were an every
day occurrence. The Burlington is a great
railroad and the past few days have evidenc
ed that it is managed by thoroughly compe
tent and wide-awake officals.
Friday last , Station Agent Magner was
summoned to McCook to confer with Super
intendent Campbell , the object of the inter
view being to tender Mr. Magner the position
of assistant chief clerk in the superinten
dent's office. As the appointment would be
in the line of promotion , Charley has decided
to accept and expects to leave for his pros
pective home some time the coming week.
Who his successor here will be is not yet
known. Mr. Magner has proven himself an
efficient and painstaking official , and though
his departure will be deeply regretted , our
people heartily congratulate him upon his
deserved preferment. Oxford Standard.
When Governor McKinley was addressing
his Hastings audience the other day he was
interrupted by a gentleman who inquired :
"What is the Itepublicau party doing for
Homestead ? " The governor at once respond
ed that protection and free trade had noth
ing to do with strikes , as England with her
free trade has two strikes to our one. He
followed tliis up with convincing argument ,
and the gentleman who had propounded the
question acknowledged himself convinced.
AsMcKinley was stepping aboard the cars for
Denver , he was again accosted by the gen
tlemen , who proved to be the engineer of the
train , and was invited to make the trip to
McCook on the engine. The governor ac
cepted the invitation , and clad in a pair of
overalls he sat on a chunk of coal and listen
ed to a treaties on mechanics from the man
whom he had convinced that protection
The B. &M. passenger department is ne
gotiating with eastern roads for special rates
for the Nebraska advertising train , which
will be sent east after tiie state fair. The
route laid out is east by the Burlington , the
Lake Shore , the New York Central and the
Boston and Albany to Boston , returning by
the Erie and Northwestern. The railroads
are planning to send along a great amount
of advertising matter in addition to the $10-
000 worth to be provided by the counties.
The Burlington lias also arranged a fast ser
vice between St. Louis and Denver to begin
August that will break the record. Leaving
the Missouri at 2 p. m. , the train will be in
Denver at 6:45 the following evening , mak
ing but one night on the road. Returning , it
will leave Denver at 8:30 p. m. , and arrive in
St. Louis at 1 p. m. the next afternoon.
These trains will run by way of St. Joseph
and the Republican valley line and will have
vestibule coaches with sleeping and dining
car service. Bee.
