Northwestern Had Announced Much
Money Would be Spent on Improve ,
ments Over Entire System Union
Pacific and Omaha Planned Depot ,
( From Frldaj'B Unlly. ]
Will the determinations of railroads
of the United Status to inaugurate an
era of moat rigid economy In depots ,
sidings , track extensions , etc. , have
nn olToct upon Norfolk and the rout
of the Northwestern system ? This Is
the question which Is being asked to
day around the railroads yards of thl *
The Northwestern recently announced -
nounced that a great deal of money
would lie expended during the coining
year In Improvements. Fremont way
to get $40,000 In Improvements , Nor.
folk was to get a new depot , perhaps ,
and the line generally was to be made
better In many little details. The Un
ion Pacific and Omaha roads were
planning a new station here. OillcialH
of all railroads , however , are said ti
have decided to stop all such expendi
tures because of the continued demands -
mands for higher wages and the con
tinued public agitation which is hostile
to corporations and railroads In par
ticular. The announcement of an
economy wave comes along , with the
announcement that rates may increase
In order to meet tbe demands for In
creased expenses and In order to main
tain the present elllclent service. If
those plans are carried Into effect It
Is very possible that much of the mon
ey which was to have been spent will
bo hold up and that freight charges
will not bo reduced.

Chicago Jobbers Want Monopoly o
Sioux City Trade.
St. Paul Dispatch : That the controversy
vorsy over railroad rates between tin
jobbing interests at Duluth and Chicago
cage , respectively , Is not over , h
clearly Indicated by a dispatch re
celved today from Chicago. The Chicago
cage Commercial association Is no
satisfied with the arrangements intuit
by the Great Northern and the Western
orn railroads running between Chtcag (
and Sioux City , Iowa.
On November 15 , the Great North
era put In some new freight rates be
tween Duluth and Sioux City , makiii !
a considerable reduction In favor o
the Duluth jobbers. This was done after
tor long agitation for better rales b ;
the Duluth commercial Interests
which claimed that the lake rate fron
Now York city greatly favored tin
Chicago jobbers at the expense o
those of Dululh. Even after the nov
reductions by the Great Northern wen
into effect , the Duluth commercial in
terests maintained that the disadvantage
ago they bad boon sulferlng was over
come only one-half.
The Great Northern had been hold
Ing back in the matter of roducliif
these freight rates for a time , fearinj
a rate war with the railroads runnin ;
between Chicago and Sioux City. I
was hoped by the Great Northern olll
clals on December 15 that the matte :
of rates had been adjusted to the sat
isfaction of all concerned and that tin
western roads would not make a cu
in their rates between Chicago am
Sioux City.
The Chicago Commercial associa
tion , however , moved by the fear tha
Duluth would get a big share of UK
western jobbing trade , which Chlcagi
has hold heretofore , has decided ti
enter a protest against the reductioi
in freight rates , which the Grea
Northern has put into effect , unless :
corresponding reduction is made fron
All of the railroads running betweei
Chicago and Sioux City are said to b <
willing to make a reduction from Chicago

Fremont Hill , the Representative ol
the Newly Proposed Yankton Gull
Line , Hnc Left Town and Norfolk If
Thinking Over His Proposal.
( From Sntunlny'fl Dully. ]
Fremont I till of New York , win :
eame to Norfolk to feel the pulse ol
this city In regard lo giving a bonus
for the building of a YaiiUton-dulf rail
road , has left town and business men
are quietly discussing the proposition
which was made to thorn by Mr. Hill
In bilef , Mr. 11111 asked the city ol
Norfolk to raise by private notes tht
sum of $100,000 to bo given to the
Yankton Si Southern railway company
upon the completion of a line from
Yankton to Galvestou. The notes
wore to be deposited In escrow In
some local bank and It was to bo pro.
vided that none of the money was to
bo turned over to the railroad com
pany until the line was completed and
trains running. In return for $100-
000 Mr. Hill promised that the railroad
would bo built and trains run.
As to the advantages to bo gained
for the city by the new road , he de
clared that It was another railroad for
the city and thai It would Increase
property value two percent , lie said
that a line straight to the gulf ought
to lie aide to make lower freight ratof
than lines hero from New York , lie
said that It would bilug lumber from
the noitli Into tills section at cheap
rates and that it would develop hip
wheat markets hero.
There is a diversity of opinion In
Norfolk iis to the proposition made by
Mr. Hill Many revert lo the sugai
factory bonus which resulted badly
for the town.
Many others declare that the $100-
000 Is too much money to ask and II
seems , from a discussion among bus !
ness men , that the sum of $100OOC
would never be raised. Many would
bo willing to vote for bonds amount
ing to $25,000 for the line , but nc
more. Still others believe that tht
road could not well afford to cut Nor
folk out of their route If the plan IE
one developed In good faith.
The city has already voted bonds
for a Yankton-Gulf railroad three dif
ferent times , but the load lias novel
been built.
It seems to be the general opinion
of business men that Norfolk would
welcome the new road , but when il
conies to raining money there Is u
pretty unanimous opinion that the
amount asked for Is too high.
Projected Yankton-Gulf Road Woulc
Mean Fight for Position.
According to the present railroad
plans for northern Nebraska , If all ol
them are carried into effect there wIT
be a race for position up around Nlo
hrnrn. If the Omaha road continue !
Its line from Newcastle to Nlohrara
and if it builds on from Crofton , there
will be two branches which wonlr
have to be crossed by the Yankton
Gulf line. This would mean $1,000 foi
each crossing , or $2,000 In all If the
Omaha road got there first. If , on
the other hand , the Yankton South'
ern g&t In ahead of the Omaha , It
would be winner by $4,000 saving
$2,000 and receiving $2,000 from the
Omaha road.

Butter and Eggs are Almost Worth
Their Weight In Gold Restaurant
and Hotel Men Hang up Signs ,
"Highest Cash Price Paid. "
Tito hens have Intensified their
strike and the consumer and dealer
alike are puzzled as to where they
will get enough eggs to supply the de
mand. The dealers are paying as high
as thirty cents a do/.en and then can
not get oven enough to supply their
regular customers.
These conditions are worrying the
hotel and restaurant men and some of
them have put out signs saying. "High
est cash price for butter and eggs. "
The cows have also gone out In sym
pathy with the hens and refuse to
give up enough milk to furnish the
owners themselves with butter for
their table. It Is thought that before
the winter Is over that butter and
eggs will only bo had at exhorbltant
prices , unless the hens and cows are
willing to arbitrate.
