AXIEL WILLARD. the recently elected president of the Baltimore &
Ohio Railroad Company, has just assumed the duties of that office,
and the company is receiving congratulations on having secured the
services of one of the most successful railway men in America. Mr.
Wlllard was born at North Hartland. Vt., January 2S. 1SC1, and at
the age of 18 began railroad work as a track laborer on "the Central Ver
mont load. He became a fireman and then locomotive engineer, and in
1SS4 he entered the employ of the Minneapolis. St. Paul & Sauk Ste
Marie railway. In 15 years he passed successively through the grades
of brakeman. conductor, roundhouse foreman, engineer, trainmaster, as
sistant superintendent and superintendent of division For two years
he was assistant general manager of the Baltimore & Ohio, and then
successively assistant to president, third vice-president and first vice
president and general manager of the Erie. On January l, 1904.
James J Hill secured the services of Mr. Willard, making him second
vice-president of the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy. In this office he
has been the chief operating officer of the Burlington in charge of
operation ano maintenance, and during his connection with that road
the Burlington spent over $00,000,000 in betterments to properfv. In
all his work as an executive officer Mr. Willard has had two paramount
aims to promote safety in travel, and to see that the railroad deals
fairly with the public. It has been his policy at all times to have
the rail'oad company treat each community that it serves the same as
a public spirited citizen of that community would do. He makes the
railioad a local enterprise in every town through which its lines pass,
and this policy has done much to change the sometimes hostile attitude

Philadelphia. Much to the surprise
of Pbiladelphians who believed that
the greater portion of the late Dr.
Thomas YV. Evans' great collection of
curios was in Paris, it has been

at public auction to provide the bal

of Philadelphia to build the Evans'
