transfer is as follows :
Fremont , Nob. , Nov. 29. Special to
The News : It Is officially announced
here today that operating headquar

be re-established here beginning next
Sunday. Six train dispatchers will bo

How Could It be Official ?
"How could such an announcerren
como officially from Fremont , " the
headquarters hero suggested , "when
there are no officials in Fremont , save
a trainmaster ? Norfolk is the enl >
headquarter point for the Northwest
ern road in the Nebraska & Wyoming
division , and Norfolk knows nothiiif ,
of any such 'ofllclal' announcement. '
As a matter of fact there is everj
reason to believe that the transfer Is-
but a temporary arrangement. Th
railroad building out of Casper , the
Boncsteol branch , the Scribner & .
Oakdale branch , and the line betwcei
Deadwood and Missouri Valley , arc
all directly radiated from this cento
and it is an easy matter to dlspatcl
trains between Lincoln and Fremon
and Hastings and Fremont , either ou
of Norfolk or , by means of one of tw
> dispatchers , out of Fremont.
Assistant General Superintenden
Walters was but recently moved fron
Sioux City to Norfolk and it was stat
ed at that , time that the reason fo
the change was the growing Import
ance of Norfolk as a railroading polnl
Further , it was recently officially ai
nounced that a new headquarter
building will be built in Norfolk to nc
commodato the officials , since the num
ber of them has been increased her
by the addition of General Superinten
dent C. C. Hughes and Assistant Gei
oral Superintendent Walters , togctho
with Trainmaster Mount and Genera
The news dispatch , of course , mere
ly says that "operating headquarters , "
are to be established in Fremont , no
reference being made to a transfer of
division headquarters or of reestablishing
lishing division headquarters at Fre
At headquarters here , when asked if
the arrangement would be permanent ,

tell what may happen in the future.

Mr. McCarthy said , "but I know the

square deal policy , and that suits me.
I feel confident the house will pass
the bill speedily. "
Mr. McCarthy was looking forward
to a delightful winter In the national
capital. He said he thought the ses

South Omaha , Nov. 29 The moderate
orate receipts of cattle and the change
in the weather has caused a good re
action in the market , prices ruling 1
ffT25c higher than last week for al
grades of fat steers and butciers

plies next week but also look for a
good demand and think anything goo <
enough for the packers will sell wel
Christmas cattle are not plentifu
but are in the usual demand and i
moderate supply can bo sold to goo
advantage and we advise shipping thl
class of cattle during the first ten day
Stockers and feeders in fair supply
with prices well sustained for desir
able grades while common steers and
heifers are selling at low prices.
Short fed or warmed up cattle are
slow sale and those of good quality
should be hold back and made better ,
as we think the outlook warrants so
We quote good to choice fat cows

Hcgs The largo receipts of hogs
expected by the packers failed to ma
terialize and with a sharp advance in
the provision market , the trade ruled
active and 10@20c higher than last
week. The packers are still "talk-
Ing" large receipts and lower prices
but are taking the hogs at the advance.
We still believe the general supply
is at least normal but don't look for
continued liberal receipts until after
The bulk of the hogs today are sell
ing $4.8004.85. with top $4.90 , which
Is still in line with the other markets.

little reaction most any time next

tically the end of the season for ship

The word results means a whole Ir-t to tbe farmer of to-day and it
especially attractivr to the homeseekcr or those sec ! np new locations.
If we tell you of a country where yu arc sure cf success , will you
believe us ? It is only necessary for y u to farm the land and the
best results will follow a State which the government reports will
show leads in the production of wheat. It also ranks among the first
in the raising of com. alfalfa , timothy and other products , together
with stock raising. We speak of
The great State of the West , where lands can be purchased from $5
to $30 per acre which equals the returns of the $ M to $1 0 per acre
lands of other States. EASTEHN COLORADO is identical m most
respects and the same opportunities are offered there. Buy quick
while the lands are cheap and secure the benefit of an excellent invest
ment. THE MISSOURI PACIFIC RAILWAY touches the
heart of this rich agricultural region and extremely low rates are
offered , allowing stop-over at pleasure in cenain territory for inspec
tion of lands , etc. Write us and we will send you free descriotive
