The show outfit Monday night made an un
provoked assault with clubs on Attorney L.
O. Stevens, and bruised him up badly. They
are simply an organized body of thugs and
thieves, and should have never been allowed
to get out of town. McCook heard of their
actions here, and about three hundred railroad
boys laid off to be ready for them.—Akron Re
A passenger created much amusement at
the depot, Monday evening, in unsuccessfully
attempting to board No. 6 in motion. He was
quite a sprinter for a heavy, dignified man,
but as one of the boys remarked, “He couldn’t
cut her." Just as he was about to grasp the
step railing of the last receding Pullman he
gave up and commenced to frantically signal
for the train to stop. But she stopped not.
The B. & M. is cutting down on their num
ber of employes along their different lines on

And through this we lose Mr. McKinney
who has been an assistant at this point. He
was changed to Indianola, leaving last Mon
day. He was a bright, industrious young em
ploye and we, as well as many more, are sorry

gams our loss. Success to him.—Imperial
The latest railroad news is to the effect that
President T. F. Oaks, of the Northern Pacific,
is to become president of the Burlington sys
tem. J. M. Forbes has resigned as president
of the board of directors and President Per
kins will succeed him, thus creating the va
cancy that President Oakes will fill. Mr.
Oakes is one of the ablest railroad men in the
west, and if he goes to the Burlington it will
be a winning move for that road.—Lincoln
Ths remains of If. W. Aliller, the notice of
whose death on the tram at Akron, Colorado,
we published two weeks ago, were brought to
Palisade several days since, and the funeral
had yesterday from the Methodist church. The
services were conducted by Rev. Madely ac
cording to the ritual of the Episcopal church,
of which deceased was a member. The cir
cumstances surrounding the death of Mr.
Miller makes the case one of peculiar sadness.
Deceased leaves a w’ife and one child toinourn
his loss.—Palisade Times.
Speaking of the abandonment of trains on
branch lines of the B. & M. Auditor Taylor
said Wednesday: “I have ascertained that it
costs the B. & M. $i.02'A per mile to run its
passenger and freight trains. This includes
everything except fixed charges. While out
on one of our branch roads some time ago I
rode 184 miles and only four persons occupied
the train in that time. Now it is reasonable
to suppose that a railroad cannot operate a
train on that amount of business. On another
train, by actual figures, its earnings were $9.50
per day, whereas it costs 895 to operate the
train during the same length of time. There
has been nothing done by the B. & M. people
to warrant the assertion made by the public
that we are discontinuing trains to make more
odious the maximum rate law. The whole
truth is that there is not business enough to
warrant the continuance of trains on branch
lines when people will not patronize them.’’
