EXPLAINS Hit ACTS.
Secretary Balllitfar Says Samethlttf
Washington. Secretary Ballinger's
widely discussed revocation of the fa-;
m "Garfield order," withdrawing
from settlement 1,500,00a acres of
public lands, and the substitution
thereof of a withdrawal order, with
holding from settlement 300,000 acres,
Sunday was declared by Mr. Ballinger
to have been wholly promotive not
subversive of Nthe conservation po
licy. ' -
A lengthy explanation of his cancel
lation of the Garfield withdrawal was
given to the press by Mr. Ballinger.,
who asserted that it was a logical step
in the preparation of the policy of
conserving the waterpower on the fed
eral domain, and one which Mr. Gar
field must have taken himself had he
remained in office.
"The first order was a blanket with
drawal issued to meet an emergency
and without taking time to ascertain
just where the power sites were
located," Secretary Ballinger said. "In
telligent prosecution of the policy de
manded, that as-soon as possible there
after these sites be located and the
lands not needed to protect them be
restored to entry. It would be an un
warranted reflection on Secretary Gar
field to assume that he would not
have done precisely' what I did ascer
tain as soon as practicable where the
power sites were actually located and
issue a new order withdrawing them
from settlement and. restoring to
entry all lands not needed for that
'"I found that by utilizing the geo
logical survey instead of the reclama
tion service, which had been employed
by my predecessor, I would secure ac
curate information as to the location
of the power sites. On consultation
with the legal officers of my depart
ment I found that I could make with
drawal order retroactive; that is, that
I could Issue withdrawal orders later
which would .effectually protect any
power sites within any entries which
might, have been made in the interim.
The retroactive provision of the sub
sequent withdrawals operated com
pletely to conserve the sites.
"Not a single power site has passed
out of the possession of the govern
ment during this administration," con
tinued the secretary.
"As a matter of fact the withdraw
als order by me protected 50 per cent
more power sites than Were con
served by the Garfield order. This im
plies no criticism of the Garfield or
der and merely shows that the Gar
field ordered was tentative."
Secretary Ballinger stated that his
orders of withdrawal do not protect
power sites within forest reservations,
and added in explanation, that previ
ously he had offered to include power
sites on forest reservations, but that
the offer was. declined on the ground
that the forest service could take care
of such sites. The secretary asserted
that a number of factors caused his
course to be misunderstood and mis
represented, but some of these he was
not at liberty to discuss.
MASKED BANDIT MAKES HAUL.
Blows Open Safe in Private Home,
Burlington, & J. Cash and bonds
amounting to nearly $i0,000 were
stolen from the home of Schuyler
Ranier, aged 72 years, by a masked
bandit late Saturday. Although the
Ranier home is less than half a mile
from the Florence postoffice, the rob
ber, after locking the aged farmer's
housekeeper in her room, blew the
safe with dynamite, hastily gathered
the contents and departed without
leaving a trace of his whereabouts.

af InaankMM System That
Camaaratlvely few people know
Just what is meant ay block signals
when they read that a railroad, has es
tablished the system on its lines.
The block is a length of track which,
on double track roads, has at its en
trance a post and movable arm, and
on single track lines one at each end.
To say that a line lias every inch
protected by this system means that
the entire line is divided into consec
utive blocks. Only one line from Chi
cago to New York is thus protected,
and of the total in the United States,
one-third is on the Union and South
The operation of the block system
is simple but. absolute. In a few
words, It means, that a train cannot
move from one block into the next
until, the latter block? is empty. As a
train moves forward; the signal, arm
is set to showHhat the block just left
may be entered by the next train
following. When a train enters a
block it so affects the en
ergy that is a part of sig
naling that the sema
phore arm remains hori-
zontal until the block is
vacated, when the arm
automatically drops and
points diagonally toward
the ground. Therefore,
aB long as the engineer
sees only drooping sig
nals he can keep on go
ing, but the instant he
finds the arm stretching
out over the track, he
must come to a stop.
knowing that that block is occupied
by another train.
The energy mentioned above is elec
tricity, the current being obtained
from a battery near each post The
rails of each block are made as if all
of one piece by connecting the joints
with wire. The extreme ends are then
connected and thus a circuit Is formed
In which the current 'flows. When no
train is in the block; the mechanism
operated by the current pulls the arm
down and holds it there. When a
train enters the block the wheels and
axles, combined with the rails, form a
shorter circuit, the energy that held
the arm down is withdrawn and up it
swings to a horizontal position.
Each block is independent of all
other, blocks. When the last wheels
of a train leave It, the current re
sumes its flow and the signal arm
at the entrance is pulled down to the
"proceed" position. But before the
hind wheels have finished doing this,
the front wheels of the locomotive
have entered the next block and
caused the arm there to rise to the
For a single track line the auto
matic arrangement is the same, but
there is a signal at each end of the
block. To prevent two trains on a
single track line entering a block at
the same time from opposite ends, be
fore the entrance to a single track
block is reached the train sets a stop
signal at the far end of that block,
and as it enters it sets the entrance
signal to stop just as is done on
double' track. Half a mile or more
before reaching the entrance signal of
each block the engineer comes to
what Is called the "distant" which
tells him how the other or "home"
signal is set
As the automatic signal is con
structed, it cannot show "go ahead"
unless the entire combination of rails,
wire, current, magnet etc., is work
ing perfectly. If a wire parts, a rail
breaks, a battery
fails, a switch point
opens the slightest,
falls and the re
leased arm re
sumes the hori
zontal position. So,
when the engineer
sees the stop sig
nal, he knows that
there may be a
train on the block,
an open switch, or
a broken rail or
ratus. At night colored lights are display
ed on the same posts. The lamps
will burn eight days without replen
ishing, but are refilled every four or
five days. When the home signal 'is
at stop, the engineer sees the flame
through a red glass. The caution light
on the distant is yellow. A green
lights means go ahead and is used
on both the home and; distant signals.
Where two or more lines cross at
grade the general plan of semaphore
arms for day and colored light for
night is the same, but owing to the
complications all signals are con
trolled by levers operated by men
from a central station. The crossing
and contiguous tracks are governed
by the interlocking system. When
this is in perfect order and the cross
ing unoccupied, it displays "stop" to
every track approaching the crossing.
Any change must be made by the sig
nalman, and to display "proceed" he
must first lock all other approaches,
with the -stop signal.
There are now about 11,000 miles
of railway equipped with the block
system. The only line thus, protected
every inch from Chicago to California
is via the Northwestern, Union and
Southern Pacific One-third of the
11,000 .miles of automatic signaling is
on the Harrlman lines and the North
western has more miles of double
tracks automatic than any other rail-

FMICETT HAS A STRONG LEAD
Few Counties Yet to be Heard
From, But the. Outcome Seems
to be Republican.
Lincoln. Official returns .from a
number of counties from which only
partial or unofficial counts had pre
viously been made Increased Faw
cett's lead, over Sullivan so far Satur
day as to put him out of, all danger.
Returns from eighty-four counties,
complete, and partial returns from
one other, give Fawcett 90,586 and
Sullivan 89.444. a plurality for Faw
cett of 1,142 votes.
The six counties still to hear from
Judge S. H. Sedgwick
all gave republican majorities last
year, when the state went democratic,
and are expected to increase Faw
cett's plurality. The arrival of the re
turns from Adams, Saline and Holt
counties, all of which gave democratic
majorities, cut down Fawcett's lead,
but as the democratic counties are all
included in the count, further returns
will not cut down this plurality.
