The depot at this place was broken into by
burglars last Friday night Some tickets and
money was stolen and two mail sacks, which
were left in the depot for safe keeping, were
cut open, and contents rifled. George Wirts

the thieves secured nothing of any value. At
present there is no clew—Holbrook Herald.
The machinery of the federal courts has re
volved again, and the programme is all ar
ranged for a conference between the Union
Pacific receivers and representatives of em
ployes, whose wages it is proposed to reduce.
The circuit court has made President Clark
the arbiter of the contention. The contem
plated reduction has been postponed, but
there is nothing in evidence to indicate that it
can be averted.
March I will bring about several changes
in the passenger department of the Burling
ton. By reason of the resignation of L. Blake
slee, traveling passenger agent of the Burl
ington, with headquarters at Denver, who will
take a position with the Florence & Cripple
Creek railway, Mr. F. C. Mathews, traveling
passenger agent in Omaha, and acting cash
ier of the passenger department, will be trans
ferred to Denver with larger powers. Mr.
Mathews will be succeeded by W. G. David
son, a brother of the chief clerk of the pass
enger department, as cashier.
Another new time card is likely to go into
effect on the Burlington within the next ten
days. It is not believed that any material
changes will be made in the present arran
gement other than train 15 from Kansas City
and St Joe will stop here for supper. About
May 1st however, some important changes in
the train service are likely to take place; just
what they will be is not known. But a daily
passenger train to Hastings and Oberlin will
probably be resumed. The loud and continu
ous remonstance against the present arrange
ment, has probably reached headquarters.

President Perkins of the Burlinglion made
a significant statement to a citizen of Lincoln
when he passed through the city, Tuesday.
He said that on the Burlington system alone
the idle railroad men numbered not less than
10,000, and that business conditions were such
that no one could tell when it would be possi
ble to give them employment. The Burling
ton has not less than 2,000 cars that ought to
go to the repair tracks. The care of this roll
ing stock would give employment to a large
force, but the available funds of the company
are needed more urgently for something else
and the cars will stand until the revival of
business makes it necessary to get them ready
for service again. President Perkins is always
as optimistic as the condidions warrant, but
he did not seem to be looking through a very
cheerful pair of glasses when here.—Lincoln
