have been worked out by the North
western to expedite the movement of
trains through Norfolk at the noon
hour and with Iho special aim to send
the Black Hills passenger on to Omaha
and Chicago without delay nt noon at

leave the Junction at 1:20 : and Norfolk
at 1:30 : , thirty minutes later than the
present scheduled time which It has
been impossible to observe.

rive at 12:50 : instead of 12:30. : This
train will leave for the west at 1:15 : ,
arriving at Oakdale at 2:11 : and fur

great convenience to many travelers

oy his family , left Norfolk at noon for
Kankakee , III. , where he goes to as
sume his position in the Illinois state
insane hospital. Dr. Singer has been
assistant physician at the Norfolk in
sane hospital for about a year and his
appointment to the directorship of
scientifi' ! research into mental discuses
at the Illinois hospital comes as an
emphatic promotion and Is a striking
recognition of Do * . Spngpr's ability
For some years Dr. Singer has been
recognized as an authority of national
reputation on mental diseases and his
loss will be keenly felt by Dr. Young ,
superintendent nt the Norfolk hospital.
Dr. Young has been considering a
number of applications for the position
made vacant by Dr. Singer's resigna
tion , but as yet as made no selection.
While the appointment will be made
formally by Governor Sheldon , the
selection has been left entirely with
Dr. Young. Dr. Young expects to
leave for Lincoln shortly to confer

place and It Is probable that the new
assistant physician will be chosen be
" , ' fore long.

Erie Railroad Has New All Steel Pas
senger Coach , Said to Be Imper
vious to Shocks.
New York , Sept. 12. The Erie Rail
road company has received an all-steel
assenger coach , which Is on exhlbl-
Ion at the Jersey City terminal. The
car Is practically non-wreckablo and
will not burn. There is less than 300
pounds of wood or other Inflammable
material used in it construction , and
all of that has been treated with a
preparation which , It is said , renders
t impervious to hent.
The car is strongly built so that It
will stand almost any shock that rail
road service will glvo it. Its weight ,
which Is nearly fifty tons , and much
In excess of that of the wooden car ,
Is the only bad point , from an operat
ing view , but It is expected that designers
signers will profit by experience and
produce a steel coach of equal strength
sut of lighter weight.

next. The governments represented
were as follows : Costa Rica , Nica
ragua , Guatemala , Salvador and Hon
duras. Assistant Secretary of State
Xdee of the United States and Senor

only point on which any hitch oc
ourred was that relating to the pro
tocol to be signed. Two of the Centra1
American representatives were with
out authority to sign the document
without first submitting it to their
governments. One of those said 1
wan possible that this might involve
come trouble and perhaps the chang
Ing of the protocol in some import
ant particulars. Some delay , there
fore , Is expected to be caused by re a
son of this fact It IB not doubted ,
however , that a permanent peace pact
will be entered Into.
, * Bvierytiling wus exceedingly en-
couraging , " said Mr. Adoo , "and the
utmost good nature prevailed. "
Nebraska Railroad Commissioners De
termined Law Must Be Obeyed ,
Commodity Rates Not Lowered West
of Grand Island.
Lincoln , Sept. 12. General Manager
G. W. Holdrogo of the Burlington road
is likely to bo culled to account to thu
state of Nebraska on a criminal pros
ecution for the manner In which thu
pass lluta of tlio road have boon cer
tified to the railway commission. Com
missioners Winuett' and Clarke wore
in consultation and the conclusion
reached was that nothing remains but i
to carry out the railway commission
act by commencing a prosecution of
the acting head of the road in tha
state on a charge of submitting uu
Incorrect list of passes given In No-
The commission has evidence oi
fourteen passes Issued by thu Bur
lington road In Nebraska that wore
not included In what purported to bu
a true list furnished by the road. The
law provldcu a heavy penalty. Thu
filing of a false statement under oath
may also be construed as porjnry.
The railway commtuntonors consult
ed with the attorney general and it la
believed here that prosecution will at
once bo commenced by him.
The Burlington will also bo proceed
ed agaltiBt by the railway commission
on the charge of failure to put into
effect the 15 per cent reductions in
certain commodity rates specified by
the Aldrlch bill , west of Grand Island.

schedules showing the reduction west
of this point. The law provides for the
arrest of the officials responsible and
heavy penalties on conviction.
The railway commission has post
poned indefinitely the grain rate hear
ing begun here and suddenly stopped
by the Injunction Issued In the federal
court. The coses will bo hold up pond'
ing judicial determination of the suit.

Stickney of the Chicago Great W 6t
ern road has returned from Europe.
Unlike some other railmd men , he la
not worried because Wall street has
bad to sell a few of Its autoi.

over , " Mr. Stickney said. "Some
things that have happened may be an
nounced later , that ia , some concerns
that have got Into difficulties may
have to suspend , som * eastern con
cerns I mean. But I don't expect the
trouble to spread to the west or grow
more serious In the east. No , the for
eigners have not lost any of their
faith In American investments. They
think it is simply a Yankee antic to
put stocks up and knock them down
again. It has often happened before
and the foreigners are used to it. It
does not shake their confidence in oui
securities. "
