There has been litt le said about it yet but it is a fact that in a short time the B. & M. will put on some of the finest fast trains in the world.

It is understood that the Chicago switch men have made up their minds that they can not afford to strike this spring. They realize that they would stand little or no chance of winning, since all the roads, without a single exception, have announced unequivocally that they will accede to no demands for high er wages. Chicago switchmen are better paid than those at any other point. A pecu liar feature of the situation is that the move for higher wages was started by non-union switchmen, and the union men came to their support. It has been announced in authoritative manner that the Burlington road will expend considerable amount of money this season in the enlargement of the shops at Havelock.
