This week , the B. & M. Railway Co.
changed their plans in regard to this city ,
having concluded to remove most of
their men to other places and abandon
the shops here partially. They laid off
three men , one quit , sixteen were sent
to Hastings , McCook , Holyoke and other
points. They claim they cannot afford
to keep two round houses so near together -
er as Hastings and Red Cloud. The business -
iness men of this city feel aggrieved over
this treatment by the officials. An effort -
fort will be made to get the road to
change the order and have the workmen
returned to this city.-Red Cloud Chief.
The company has evidently concluded
that it can secure enough men who will
pay their debts , to carry on their business -
ness , and seem to have commenced to
systematically clean out of the service
all employes who are regarded as of the
dead-beat stripe. In Plattsmouth , Lincoln -
coln and other places the weeding out
plan is operating , and a number of em-
ployes , some of them long in the service ,
have been let out. The company is
weary of the order and garnishment business -
iness , and proposes that its employes
shall pay their debts , or retire from the
service. The company owes it to the
commercial interests of the state , and
its course will be generally commended ,
and need work no hardship to any one ,
while there wilFa distinct gain to business -
ness men and others.
The sleeper Banda passed through the
city , yesterday , on its way east on the
Burlington. This is the first Pullman
which has been turned out for the Burlington -
lington with a new vestibule. The former -
mer vestibules , it will be remembered ,
were nothing more than alleyways for
passengers to pass through on their way
to other cars. The new vestibule is the
most complete thing of the kind ever put
on a car. It completely covers the platform -
form of the car and makes it an excellent
vantage ground from which the country
may be observed. Gates are lowered
covering the opening left by the steps
while the doors above them are of thick
glass through which one can see plainly.
The furnishings are of the finest material -
terial and as the vestibules fit closely ,
one hardly realizes that he has left the
main part of the car. Journal.

HIGH SPEED RAILWAY RECORDS.
During the closing days of last month ,
the two great competing railways that
run from London to the north of Scotland -
land , known respectively as the cast
Coast and \Vest Coast routes , commenced -
menced an acceleration of service on
their through trains. In the active
competition that followed , the West
Coast companies covered the total distance -
tance 01540 miles in the unprecedented
time of 512 minutes , or at the rate of
63.25 miles per hour.
The sustained speed was remarkable
in any case , and especially so when it
is considered that it was made by a
regular daily train starting du schedule
time , and that the latter half of the
journey was made through a mountainous -
ous country , in which , for a distance of
6o miles , the grades are very severe ,
varying from i per cent to 1.33 per cent.
The engines , moreover , that hauled the
train were not the largest on the road ,
but in some cases were of a type known
as the President class , that is now some
25 years old , but which , on account of
its excellent performance , is still in
active service ,
On Thursday , September 12th , the
New York Central Railroad made up a
special train that was a counterpart of
the Empire State Express , drawn by
their latest and most powerful engines ,
and set out with the express purpose of
"breaking the record" of their transatlantic -
lantic brethren. Over a course that is
100 miles shorter and over a line that is
remarkably level and free from gradients ,
this special train , which was considerably
heavier than the English train , made an
average speed that wss one mile per
hour faster than that of the Nest Coast
train , being 64.34S miles per hour , as
against 63.25 miles per hour for the
English train. , These are both very remarkable -
markable performances. For purposes
of comparison , however , they are useless ,
until we are in possession of all the conditions -
ditions that prevailed. The bare question -
tion of speed is in itself no test of locomotive -
motive performance. This is a fact
little understood by the Fublic at large ;
but well understood by engineers them-
selves. To judge of two performances
it is necessary to know :
I. The ratio of the weight of engine to
the weight of the train hauled.
2. The ratio of the amount of coal
burned , water evaporated , and oil used
per mile to the weight of train hauled.
3. The state of the weather , whether
wet or dry , and the force and direction
4. Most important of all , the amount
and extent of the grades and curvature
on the two roads on which the record is
With all these data to baud a very
close estimate could he made in each
case of the actual units of work performed -
formed in a given unit of time. Only
after such a comparison , based on accurate -
curate data , as above , could it be even
approximately stated which performance
was the most satisfactory.-Scientific
George Bunting has received a letter
from his chum and fellow-worker , Al.
O'Niel. Al. is in Chicago , and the letter
states that he is having a sportive time
with the girls and boys , that his fingers
are slowly healing , and that he will be
in Republican about the 1st of February.
An ovation will be tendered him on his
arrival. . . .We regret to say it , but every
indication now points to the early abandonment -
donment of the Red Cloud round house
and what shops were connected therewith -
with , Master Mechanic Archibald went
down the line , Tuesday morning , to supervise -
pervise the taking out of machinery , and
it is said that for the future but one engine -
gine will be retained to do the yard
work. The enginemen along the line
have been notified to take their work to
the McCook shops , and altogether , appearances -
pearances for the railroad future of Red
Cloud are anything but cheerful , Mr.
Archibald has discharged four men and
removed twelve families to Hastings and
McCook. The opinion is well nigh universal -
versal that the company will soon make
Republican City headquarters for all
their interests between Nymore and Mc-
Cook. Stick to it , boys , this is going to
be the valley town.-Republican City
