The Union Pacific railroad has notified
the western passenger association of its
withdrawal from the association, even
from all local agreements to which it
has been a party. And in the big rate
fight it will be a free lance.
Mr. and Mrs. Steve Dwyer arrived

gone to house-keeping in the Sheriff
Banks residence over on south Melvin
street, and are receiving the congratula
tions of their many friends here.

The superintendent of the railway
mail service pays some attention in his
annual report to the oil lamp which he
says is a prolific source of danger to life
and proporty on trains. He points out
that a vast amount of damage is done
that the public does not hear of, and
mentions forty-three cases where lamps
broke and saturated the interior of cars
with oil without taking fire. The car
stove is going and the car lamp must
follow suit. It is out of date.

Rosewater thinks the government
ought to donate 50 millions to the Union
Pacific railroad. Wliat’s the matter with
the government taking charge of the
road? It owns it. It ought to be able
to run it.

Fireman Harry Kingsbury of the switch
engine experienced a narrow escape from
death, last Saturday evening, in this
wise: He stepped offliis engine at seven
o’clock, and in the dusk and not hearing
the approach of the Imperial train on ac
count of the switch engine “popping,”
he stepped right in front of Engineer
Chambers’ locomotive, which struck and
tossed him up on its pilot, from which
he fortunately rolled off the side and out
of reach of the wheels. Subsequent inves
tigation disclosed the fact that his left
arm was broken, although Kingsbury
was making preparations to go to a
dance, not thinking his injuries more
than of slight account.
Everything points to a big revival of
work at the Havelock shps, and the
Times of that place says that prospects
for a speedy resumption of full time at a j
very early date is exceedingly bright. ]
Some go so far as to assert that this will
occur about the first of the month, al
though no authoritative news could be
learned. A number of the gangs are now
putting in ten hours a day and some of
them extra time. The rush of work has
begun and a vast amount of repairing
will have to be accomplished by the time
severe weather sets in. The Burlington
stands in need of the engines and the
boys will doubtless be put back on full
time very soon in order that the motive
power of the system may be put in pro
per shape. As a straw, it is well to note
that where a month ago the storehouse
track was filled with idle locomotives,
now there are none, all having gone
back into service.
The ticket office and general Western
headquarters of the Burlington road will
be established in the Iron building, Sev
enteenth and Arapahoe, on December i.
The papers closing the lease were signed
Wednesday, and plans are being drawn
for the finest railroad office in Denver.
The company will occupy the cffices of
the defunct Chamberlin Investment
company. The offices are on the ground
floor, at the corner of the street, and are
well lighted supplied with every modern
convenience. The movement two blocks
toward the south from the present loca
tion, Seventeenth and Larimer, is in ac- J
cord with a general influx of business in
the direction of Broadway, which is point
ed out as the future retail center of Den
ver. It is understood that several other
railway companies are preparing to take
flight in the same direction, one of
them having its eye on the Equitable
building. From unofficial sources it is
learned that the Burlington company has
been paying £7,800 rental per year for the
use of the rooms at Seventeenth and
Larimer. The outlay of $650 a month
was considered too heavy a burden bjT
the management, and the lease expiring
the change was decided upon. The new
location is said to have been secured at a
much lower figure than the amount nam
1 ed above.—Denver News.
