STOP THB TRAIN.
W. H. Wadsworth , mayor oflndianola ,
together with councilmen and many of
the merchants , have petitioned the board
of transportation to compel the Burlington -
ton railroad to stop its fast train , running -
ning east and west , being trains Nos. 2
and 3. Indianola is the county seat of
Red Willow county , is a city of the second -
end class , and the Burlington runs trains
Nos. 2 , 3 , 4 and 5 , at 6:12 : a. m. , 12 nnid-
night , 9:30 : p. nn , and 8:30 p. nn. , respect-
ively. The petitioners state that trains
Nos. 2 and 3 do not stop , but run at full
speed through the city. Train No. 2 ,
going east , stops at Cannbridge ; fourteen
miles east , and at Arapalnoe , about
twenty-eight miles east , and at Oxford ,
about thirty-eight miles east of Indian-
The mayor believes that if train No. 2
would stop at Indianola it would accommodate -
modate a great many persons desiring to
conic to Iudiadolaand that the company
could have it stop without inconvenience
and loss of time at other points , and
that the company unjustly discriminates
against Indianola. 'l'he petitioners further -
ther allege that train No. 3 , going west ,
could stop at points isest of Oxford and
still have ample time to reach Denver ,
the objective point , on time ; that it
would be a great convenience to citizens
to have both trains stop and it is due the
public at large.-Lincoln Journal.
LATER-SETTLED-The complaint of
the ruayor and citizens of Indianola to
the board of transportation against the
Burlington railway has been adjusted
without a formal hearing. The citizens
asked for an order compelling the road
to stop the two fast trains and the matter -
ter has been compromised by the road
consenting to stop the eastbound train
which goes through Indianola early in
the morning. Those who want to take
the westbound train at Indianola can go
to McCook on a local train and board it
THE IASTEST REGULAR TRAIN
IN THi ; WORLD.
The Empire State express noiv holds
the world's record as the fastest regular
passenger train. The speed of the best
trains of foreign nations is : England ,
51.75 miles per hour ; Germany 51.25 ;
France , 49 SS ; Belgium , 45.04 ; Holland ,
44 73 ; Italy , 42.3.4 ; Austria-Aungary ,
41.75 America now heads the list with
53 33 miles per hour to the credit of the
Empire State express. This is the speed
now made between New York and Buff-
A. P. A. and Catholic employes of the
Union Pacific at Pocatello and other
points on the Idaho division have been
having considerable trouble of late. It
is alleged that the Catholic bosses have
been discharging the A. P. A. employes
for trivial offences , but in reality because
they are members of the order and that
the A. P. A , bosses have been discharging -
ing the Catholics for like reasons , and
that there has been considerable hatred
between the men. The matter has been
brought up at headquarters and it is understood -
derstood that vigorous measures viil be
taken to put an end to the quarreling and
if neccessery orders will be issued fc-
bidding the discussion of religious subjects -
jects during working hours and about
the property of the company. It is reported -
ported from Pocatello that this trouble
has been brewing for several months.
The superintendent and division superintendents -
intendents have been notified to put a
stop to all this and to give the men to
understand that politics and religion
utust not be considered in men and that
the work of the men is the only thine
for them to consider.-Journal.
A railway in California has purchased
10,000 tons of steel rails in England.
The cost of rails and freight by sea is
less than the cost of American rails and
railway freight from the east. English
rails cost $23 per ton in New York and
the duty brings them up to $ o. Sailing
ships carry the rails from England to
I'acific ports at a very low rate , as outgoing -
going cargoes are scarce at present.
In Pennsylvania , Ohio and adjoinuig' '
states , which have had to carry water in
cars long distances for the past several
months , are at last relieved by natural
causes. The Lehigh Valley kept several
train crews hauling water , about 300,000
gallons per day. It cost the Ohio Central -
tral $75 per clay for two months to haul
The eccentric Holman locomotive , !

The new "Overland Express" on the
