gram to the HEK.J Kx-Uovcrnor Warren
was the principal witness oxamincd by the
Union Pacific Investigating committee at Its
session hero to-day. Ho testified that the
facilities of the road for handling freight and
transporting passengers were goo.1 nnd that
during the pjvst few years no complaint
could bomado of either branch of the service.
Cattle shippers had no complaints nnd ho
knew of no rebates or special rates being
granted any firm or Individual. No Inllucnco
had been used lately by thu Union 1'aolllc to
curry elections In the territory. What Influ
ence had been used In early days was rather
to prevent bad lo lslntloh than to direct It.
In regard to the building of branch lines Mr.
Warren strongly favored thc.conttnuanco of
present branches and the building of new
ones. ' 1 ho Chovenno it Northern , now built
from Cliejenno to the I'latte river , should bo
extended north to Buffalo and branches
north should' bo built from Laramlo and
Kawllns. If this uero done much of the
trailu captured by the Northwestern In Its
course across the toirltorv could be regained
by the Union 1'ncltic. Without these feedois
the road would soon become llko a
trco stripped of Its branches. Ho thought
that previous to 1&31 the equipment
nnd road bed was robbed to pay dividends ,
blucu that time the policy eeo'iis to Imve
changed nnd the line of road has practically
been reno\\ud. Now stations liavo been
built and the ncncr.il condition of the road
Improved , although no dividends liavo been
paid. It nt the maturity ot Its debt to the
government the road could not pay ho
thought an extension of tiinn should bo
ernnted. M.ivor Kher and Mnrshnl
Smith testilied that thn Union Pacific
discriminated ncalnst Individuals nnd In
favor of their own agent In the
coal business. The freight on coal from
Hock Springs to Clioyonno was the samn as
to Oinnlia , MX ) miles further away. F. b. lie-
hard , who \vis a fielght bllllni : cloik from
lb7U to Ibb. ! , testified that the rate of freight
charged the * company's ngont on coal was
S5.50 per ton , while to the government It Is

and attaching endorsement ot Mr. Dowitt

his autograph. When these notes In the
State of New York bank readied 810,000 the
clerks became suspicious nud submitted the
signature to the president , but ho considered
It genuine and subsequent paper was dis

ho says , when there have boon brighter pro

crops are not only promising to bo unusually

ter than the average , There Is no threat so

earlier than usual and farmers are in hl h
spirits , fcclltu sure of exceptional rewards.
It Is noticed by President Cable that nil
the dreary tnlk about hurt to thu west from
real est.itu booms has nothing whatever to
suppoit It. Activity In real estate has at
tracted settlers instead of frightening them
away. In Iowa , towns that have , been
boomed the most , the most general business
Is being done.Vliun \ people talk about wild

Canada's foreign trade has been utterly bar-

impossible to extend Canada's ioroisn trade

A Petroleum King.
A few days ago , in a hospital of
Vienna , poor and alone , died the son of
a man who , a few decades back , was
called the "Petroleum King" in his ( tali-
asan iiome , ami wns the founder of one
of the most oollossal industries of mod
ern timas , the roliuin of oil. This man
his nanio was Ailolph Schremcr
shared the lot of the majority of in
ventors and benefactors of mankind. Ho
increased the world's wealth by millions ,
enriched thousands , laid tlio foundation
for immense ! fortunes , but remained a
poverty stricken man. The petroleum
industry in the United States dates from
the "liftios , " the first sale of American
oil taking place in 1851 , but Abraham
Schrolner , by documents in the archives
of Vienna , produced illuminating oil as
early as 1853. Ho owned apiecu of land
in Boryslaw whore , in nn opening in the
earth , ho found a black , tar-like sub-
.stance which the peasants hat' ' used from
time immemorial to heal wounds and
greese thuirwiigon wheels. Schre'mer got
thu idea that the lluid in thu clay might bo
employed in other ways. Ho kneaded
n ball from the slime , stuck a wick into
it , and it burned brightly with a red
llamc until tlio substance was exhausted.
This was the lirst petroleum lamp. Later ,
Schreinor heard something of distillation ,
and determined to try afow experiments.
Ho purchased u lingo kettle and trans
formed it into a distilling apparatus as
well as possible , filled it with the bluc-k
earth , and placed it uuon the firu to ac
complish the distillation. But that hap
pened more rapidly than ho wished. The
petroleum exploited , the kettle was
liioken into a thousand pieces , and
Sehrciner's body was covered with scars ,
Hardly recovered from his wound * ho
began his experiments again with a
proper apparatus , into the .secrots of
which an apothecary had introduced
him. Here ho wns crowned with better
success. Ho gained a product which re
sembled a strongly-smelling oil , and pe
troleum was found. He filled a bottle
and hold it to a druggist in Dropobyuz.
That was in the year 1851. ! Schroinor
was , therefore , not only the discoverer of
petroleum , but the first who introduced
it into commerce. The first purchaser ol
tlio new fluid in quantities was the apothe
cary , Mikolasuh , in Lcmburg. The lat-
'tor , who acquired the lirst ono hundred
pounds for fifteen llorina , refined the oil
until ho succeeded in making it compar
atively clear and colorless. Ho was ac
cordingly thu prime oil-refiner. In the
same year the Kaiser Ferdinand Knihvaj
company purchased three thousand
pounds at 100 guldens per ono hundred
pounds to use in lighting their signal
lamps. Encouraged , Sclireinor enlarged
his factory and began thu production ol
oil in great quantities. In 1850 ho bored
the first oil well In Ualicm. Ho then
erected his refinery and distillery. In
1800 the entire works were burned to tlio
ground. But ho completed them anew ,
hoping for bettor luck. Ho had hardly
started his motor , when the flames nt'nln
robbed him of his treasure , and this time
beyond restoration. His youthful cnergj
had dcsortcd him now that gray hairs ,
feeble health and ago hud come. Ik
tried to drown his nuiury in drink and
died in great poverty , leaving hia son
nothing , save a document which .statuil
that Abraham Belirenlor was thu first mar
to discover petroleum for illtiminntlnt
purposes nnd introduce it into trade.

TERRIER AND HOD E N T.
A Wicked Hull Slut Which Preferred
Douj to lints.
San Francisco Clirontclo ; A very largo
number of sports assembled at a cerium
pit last night to witness a rat-killing
tournament in which several prize tcr-
rlors took part.
Tins sport is becoming very popular ,
and many podlgrco terriers arc being Im
ported from England and the cast , so
that before long some excellent records
should bo made In this city ,
The rats last night wore a yory mixed
lot , the smaller fry being hard to mouth
and the largo ones showing determined
light , so that the work of extermination
wont on slowly.
The lirst dog to the pit was Bessie , a
bull slut , who certainly looked as if she
would bo moro at homo chewing thn
windpipe of one of her own kind than
crushing rodents , a supposition which
subsequent nvonts verified. Besslo
proved herself very Incapable In the rat-
killing line , and it was fullvfonr minutes
before the sixteen vermin which she
essayed to slaughter were ready for the
Dick , a fox torriur , came next , and got
through with live rats in thirty ncconds.
He was followed by Darkey , a nonde
script , who killed eight rodents In a
bungling manner in the slow time of two
AlmedaJaek , a Swedish terrier , then
Meshed his maiden teeth < n the carcasses
of sixteen squealers , and though rather
ponderous for pit maneuvers managed to
corpse his siring in an even tlucc min
Jack , a fov terrier , then killed nine
average rats in ono minute and gave
way to Jerry , the never failing brown
and white fox terrier , who put an end to
the earthly careers of twenty-five assorted
brownies in the creditable time of liW. :
The last single feat was performed by
Jack , a Yorkshire terrier , who ran against
four furry lighters from the seawall and
had a very rough time with thorn. Sun
dry nips on the mnx./.le made the British
dog act cautiously and it look him a full
two minutes to perform his contract.
There were tlion twelve rats Inft and
they were turned into ttio pit and a "freo
for all" arranged , in which all the avail
able terriers took part , Bessie , the bull
slut , then came out in her true colors ,
and as soon as she touched the nit floor
in company with the other dogs she
seized Yorkshire Jack by the throttle ,
and caused him to yell for mercy. Jack
being dragged away from her. she turned
her attention to the Sweedi.sh terrier ,
and was mopping the floor with him at a
lively rate , This slight incident gave
rats a temporary respite and they played
leap-frog over thu non-combatant dogs ,
which were watehing Bessie's erratic bu-
havior in evident consternation , but the
oHending animal once removed , the rats
were attended to and killed in less time
than it takes to write it.

St. Paul Pioneer Press : It is cabled
that thu Oar of Hussiu has set the seal of
his approval upon the great project to ex
tend the Central Asian railway , which is
under construction across the Knights
steppes , to thcSyr-Daria , and is projected
up that river to the Russian military
posts thereon , and to Tashkent ) , Diizad
and Samarkand , Already the railway
made it comparatively easy for Russian
armies to get down to the Afghanistan
frontier , but thu extension of the main
line to and down iho Amoor Valley to
Vladivostock , tlio great Russian naval
station on the Pacific Ocean ,
is a military necessity , and its
oflectuation embodies ulso im
portant results to Russian commerce
in Northern Asia nnd with China. Within ,
the last twenty years Russia has added a
territory in Central Asia considerably
larger than Franco nnd Germany com
bined. The remarkable faculty tor ab
sorbing hostile Asiatic nations and tribes ,
nnd making them aids in her civilizing
processes , is onn of the phenomena of this
great scheme of Russmn conquest. The
Russians know exactly how to govern
them subject Asiatic people ; they sel
dom seriously disturbo native adminis
trations , and they consequently nro sel
dom troubled witli dissatisfaction or ro-
volt. The vast Central Aiirn region is
kept in order by loss than fiO.OOO Russians.
The extension of railway facilities will ,
of course , insure this security from re
volt , because of the case with which
troops can bo transported constdorablo
Tlio Central Asian railway lias boon
constructed ever the most difficult portion
tion of tlio route across the Asiatic con
tinent , probably ; but one-fourth of the
distance to Vladivogtock Las hardly boon
travorsnd. Tlio proposed road Is to pass
through Kirghisk.lrkoiitsk and tlio other
important military stations in Siberia ,
and its cost will bo imiuenso. It will , in
efloct , give Russia the strongoit grin on
Asi.x and alarm the British government.
This railway will bo n menace to North
ern China , and greatly facilitate Russian
designs on Coroa. \ \ huthur the czar
really wants Afghanistan is problemati
cal ; but the railway to Merv already
places in his hands advantages for furth
er conquests southward wliioh England
docs not now possess. The British gov
ernment , indeed , has recognized the
strength and meaning of Russia's move
ment by expediting the extension of the
railway from the Indus Valley through
the Bolan Pass to Candahar and Cabul ,
