W. H. JOHNSON RESIGNS , M. C.
HOUSE ON SCHOOL LOT IS SOLD
W. H , Johnson , Who Has Been One of
the Most Efficient Members of the
Board Norfolk Ever Had , Resigns
Because of Absence This Winter.
At n meeting of the hoard of educa
tion hold last night the resignation of
W. II. Johnson as a member of the
hoard was received and accepted , and
M. C. Ha/en was elected to 1)11 ) the
vacancy. A small house which has

Ransom who will Imuiedlaloly move
Iho house off tlio lot.
Mr. Johnson , who Is now In Colorado
rado Springs , Colo. , tendered his res
ignation as a member of the board be
cause ho expects lo bo In Colorado all
wlnlor and would bo unable lo attend
the meetings or to engage actively in
the work. His resignation was re
ceived with regret by the board mem
bers as Mr. Johnson's sorvlco has been
invaluable lo the board and the Nor
folk public school system.
Mr. Johnson has been a member of
the hoard for two terms and the
chances were that , If he would have
accoplcd , ho would have been contin
ued In the olllco Indefinitely because
of his excellent business qualifications.
The people of Norfolk generally will
very much regret the loss of his ser
vice , in tlio public school work.

house on Soulh Fourth street , stand

was disposed of to Mr. Ransom and
will be moved off Iho ground. This

needed for school purposes.
INCREASE RAILROAD WAGES.
Report From New York Says Increase
Will be Paid Soon.
The railroads in Ihe wesl , as well ,
probably , as llioso In the east , accord
ing to the president of ono of the larg
est western railroads , will undoubted
ly have to comply witli the demands
of Iheir employes for higher wages ,
says a New York report The official
who inndo Ibis statemenl is at the head
of one of the largo systems upon which
demands have already been made , and
ho is convinced that the movement
among the men has gained such head
way that the railroads can IInd no way
out of the situation except by granting
some increase In wages.
It is not his belief that there Is any
danger of a strike on Iho par' ' of tlio
engineers , firemen , switchmen , and
others who have asked for higher pay.
He believes , however , thai Iho rail
roads caimol refuse an advance In
wages without engendering a fooling
of dissatisfaction among their men
which in the long run would prove
very embarrassing to the railroads.
Oilier classes .of employes , according
to this official , are likely to be added
shortly to the list of these who already
have presented demands for larger
wages or shorter hours of work. On
sonic roads the telegraphers have al
ready presented demands , and on ethers -
ors the machinists have joined the
ranks of those expressing dlssatlsfac-
lion with their present pay. Demands
are likely to bo made In Ihe near fu-
lure , lie said , in behalf of the train
The general allitndc of railroad of
ficials , according lo Ibis railroad pres
ident , toward an increase can hardly
reasonably bo refused , although the
establishment of a higher scale of
wages may well prove embarrassing as
soon as business falls off materially
from Its present greal acllvily. It Is
Ibis phnso of Iho mailer that Is said
lo bo embarrassing lo Ihe railroads.
The presenl earnings are on such an
enormous scale lhat practically every
road in tlio country could Increase its
pay rolls by granting higher wages
without being much embarrassed by
this concession to their men. It is
considered , however , that the railroads
arc now al the lop notch of tholr pros-
erlly , and thai should a period of de
pression make Us appearance it would
become necessary to restore wages to
llielr presenl level , or perhaps oven lo
a lower one. A prominent railroad of
ficer said that If any advance was
granted at this time Iho railroads
would have to consider reducing wages
as soon as business falls off materially -
ly , even though an effort to cut down
the wages of their employes bo met
with threaloned strikes.
Nevertheless , the majorlly of rail
road officials are said to bo altogether
in favor of compromising with their
men at this lime by granting some in
crease in wages. It is said that in
most cases the railroad employes have
asked much larger increases than they
have any idea of obtaining , and that
they would really be satisfied with
much less than they are asking for.
Considerable Importance Is attached
by some railroad men lo Iho sugges
tion lhat the railroads In granting an
Increase In wages at this tlmo will
greatly strengthen tholr case should
It become necessary later on , owing to
temporary depression In business , to
nsk their employes to accept lower
wages. Such a course , It Is said , would
enable the railroads to argue justly
that by advancing the pay of tholr men
at this tlmo they had permllled them
to share In the present great prosper
ity , and that It was only fair in turn
that the men should accept n decrease
should a change In business conditions
make It necessary for the railroads to
curtail their operating expenses.

PREPARING TO BUILD WEST.
OFFICIALS VISITED LANDER

Was Lnltl With Heavy Steel and
That From Shoshonl to Lander With
Light Steel Inference.
A train of private cars occupied by
Home of the hlh ( ; olllclals of the North-
wiwlorn road went through Norfolk on
n "hurry" schedule for the west. Sat
urday evening. The destination of the
train was said to bo lender , Wyo. , the
terminus of the now road. The visit
bolng made by these men at this ( line
has given hope that something will bo
decided about future extensions and
that contracts taking the end of stool
beyond l.nnilor will soon hu let.
A gentleman familiar with the situa
tion on the line of the Northwestern
west of Casper , says that heavy steel
wati laid from Casper to a point , twen
ty miles west of Shoshunl , mid that
from there to Ijindor lighter stool wan
used. The Inference lu that the main
line will run west from the end of
heavy stool west of Shouluml , and that
It will point In the direction of the
Yellowstone park. This might Indi
cate a route up the Big Wind river
reservation , and Home railroad men be-
Hove It possible that the Yellowstone
park line of the Oregon Short Mno
company may bo tapped somewhere
near Anthony , but that the ultimate
object of the company Is to build west
to the 1'nelllo coast.

Northwestern movements. The cap
ital slock of one hundred millions WIIH

dred million dollars. It was announced

Special Architect Finds Board Made
Best Contract Possible.
That ( he state board of public lands

tract when it awarded tlio work of In
stalling elevators at the Hustings In
sane asylum to Uarl Woncott for $5170
Is the conclusion reached by George
A. Berllnghof , the architect employed
to Investigate as to the cost of such
apparatus. The report of Mr. Bcrllng-
liof has not yet been Hind with the
hoard , but la ready for the cousidern
tlon of that body. It will probably betaken
taken up at a meeting on Thursday

The archllocl bases his findings on
personal Inspection of Uio elevator
system that Is bolng put in at Has
tings , supplemented by figures re
ceived from half a dozen eastern firms
on how much the work would cost.
Ho sent letters to ten or twelve houses
asking for estimates , without telling
them that the contracl had already
been lot. Six answered by letter sub
mitting figures on the specifications
ho enclosed to them , which were iden
tical with those on which Wescottbld.
Their terms varied considerably , but
all wore well up in price compared
with the present contract rate , Mr.
"I was surprised when I found out
what some linns would have charged
for putting In the elevators , " said the
architect. "Nono of the offers I got
were any betlor than the contract.
Some of the firms wrote that they
could make a cheaper price by sub
stituting other apparatus which would
not have been so good , but none of
fered to go lower on what was want
ed. I was informed by one or two
that the state would bo getting a flno
mechanical equipment If the specifica
tions were followed. I think , on the
whole , that Iho Wcscott contract Is
a good one and the state has no rca
son to back out on It. "
One of the houses to which Arch !
tcct Berllnghof addressed a letter ol
Inquiry sent a man to "look over the
Hastings InBtltutlon and figure on the
cost. Ho was considerably disgustei
to learn that the contract had already
been lot and the work started.
The board of public lands and build
