George Arnold, the eight-year-old son
of an emigrant from Arapahoe, was run
over and killed by a west bound Burling
ton freight train near Riverton, Tuesday.
The boy and his sister, about the same
age, were driving some cattle along the
road close to the track, and at the ap
proach of the train the boy's horse be
came unmanageable and threw his rider
immediately in front of the train.
Carroll D. Wright, United States La- i

President Cleveland to investigate the j
Pullman strike, acknowledges that he
has a pullman pass that entitles him to
ride free in any Pullman qpr at any time
in any part of the United States, and
that he uses it whenever he pleases. He
ought in decency resign from the com
mission. He is incompetent.
Traveling Freight Agent Choate of the j
Union Pacific, has received plans for a j
new irrigation pump made in Beatrice, |
and which will be experimented with at
Kearney and Lexington. It draws from
eight wells with three-inch pumps and j
twelve-inch cylinders, and with an ordi- j
nary windmill lifts three and one-half j
gallons per stroke per pipe and makes i
forty strokes per minute. This means I
nine thousand gallons per hour, suffi- !
dent to cover seven and one-half acres 1
one inch deep every twenty7 four hours,
or sixty-three acres in a season. The
pump is highly spoken of. Mr. Choate j
has just returned from the northwest I
The telegrams announced a day or j
two since that the Burlington had de- '
dared its regular dividend. Amid the
numerous railway bankruptcies which '
have thrown upwards of 40,000 miles of
railroad into the hands of receivers, the
Burlington has kept on the even tenor of
its way and earned a dividend for its ;
stockholders. This speaks volumes for
its management, more especially in view .
of the prevailing commercial distress,
reduced traffic and other misfortunes
which have involved all interests alike.
It is a demonstration of executive ability 1
and business capacity of the highest or
der, and denotes as weil the strong hold
which the road has upon the general
public. In addition to this it is con
structing an extention of its northern
Wyoming branch from Sheridan to Bill
ings. Montana, a distance of 143 miles,
where a connection will be made with
the Northern Pacific, and a new route
thus opened to the Northern Pacific
coast. Seventy-two miles is- already (
completed and work is being pressed
with vigor. A railroad that can declare
a dividend and construct extensions in
these times is certainly entitled to praise
for the extraordinary capacity of its man

The failure of the corn crop has neces
sitated the closing of three station on
the Burlington in Nebraska. The sta
tions abandoned are Cheney, south of
Lincoln; Farwell, between Central City
and Greeley Center, and Elyria, north
of Greeley Center. These stations are
largely dependent upon the shipment of
corn, and the failure of the corn crop,
the officers of the road claim, would
cause the stations to be kepjt up at a loss.
The plan of running a passenger train
on the B. & M. from Red Oak, Iowa, to
Lincoln without change of engines, but
with a change of crews at Nebraska City,
has been changed, and under a new or
der the C., B. & Q. engine is dropped at
Nebraska City and a B. it M. engine
takes the train to and back from Lincoln.
The Nebraska City News says: '‘Another
change has gone into effect on the B. it
M. In the past the firemen have been
allowed to run as do the engineers, first
in first out. The company claims that
the firemen are not acquainted with the
engines and use more coal than is neces
sary, and to save coal each fireman will
in the future be required to stay with
his engine and go out when it goes out."
Trenton, Neb., August 26.—[Special
to Lincoln Journal.]— The eastbound

He is at least eighty years old, and when
found had over $200 in his pocketbook
