train arrives in the city over any road but

bound for some point in prosperous Nebraska.
Under the car coupler law the railroads en
gaged in interstate commerce will have until
January i, 1898, a period of five years, to pro
vide the locomotives and cars with the saftey

fied with it, but it is to be expected that they
will make a vigorous effort in the next con
gress to have the law repealed or amended so
as to extend the time. The popular senti
ment of the country, however, is so strongly in
favor of this legislation that the next congress
will hardly dare to interfere with it.
