or thrco railroad rncn are gathered together.
It la admitted on all sides that a final solu
tion ot the terminal question , which lias been
mooted for so many years , Is near at hand.
Thcro U no rcasinable doubt among thoko
who know that all the railroads entering the
city except the Ilurllngtoii will occupy the

General Manager Dickinson of the Union
Porlnc said lo The Hoc that the matter of
a permanent depot , as well as what roads
should occupy It with the Union Pacific , la
still an open question and might not tie

for the permanent depot are now bolng pre
pared but arc not nearly completed. Presi

and It Is said that whllo there he will nub-
nilt the propcefd plans for thu permanent de

western , the Milwaukee and the Itock Inland
Work on the Union Pacific's temporary de
pot Is progressing at a remarkably rapid
rate. It wan Just one week ago that the
city council gave the Union Pacific railroad
permission to construct a temporary frame
structure , and the building has now advanced
lo the stage of roof construction. The ground
was surveyed on Monday , the piling was
driven on Tuesday , the floor beams were laid
on Wednesday and Thursday , the sides were
run up on Friday , and on Saturday the work
men began to build the pointed roof. The
alacrity with which the work 1ms been
pushed , eonllnns the flint announcement that
the Union 1'aclflc hail nil Its plans and ma
terial prepared a fortnight aqo , and merely
waited for the necessary permission to prac
tically build a depot in n night. A score of
workmen , under the direction of John Lang-
try , supervisor of bridges and buildings for
the Union Pacific , are working as hard as
possible to hurry the completion of the
wooden structure to enable the Union Pacific
to move Into a temporary homo of Its own
before thu Burlington finished Us own per
manent structure. At present one of the two
, V framn buildings of the Union Pacific , Just
north of the tracks , used by passenger trains
and cant of the Tenth street viaduct , Is well
along toward completion , so far as the ex
terior Is concerned. This is the shed that
stands opposite the west end ot the present
shed. The piling Js driven and the floor
lieanm laid for the other frame
building , which will be Just west
of the ono whoso timbers are
already up to the height of fifteen feet. Thu
structure that Is nearlng completion Is to
bo used as a baggage room by the Union
Pacific and other roads dependent upon It for
terminal facilities. The ono that will stand
between it and the viaduct Is to provide
waiting rooms for the passengers ot four
great railroads during the exposition. Bad
structure Is almost n duplicate of the shed
that has served for a depot for eight years ,
except that the root U sloped a little bit
higher. The location of the new buildings
allow that there will bo considerable room
between them and the tracks , allowing for a
wldo platform , which will no doubt lit- found
very convenient during the exposition. A
drive-way and walk will slope down from
the cast sldo of the viaduct to the front
ot the now frame buildings.

against every railroad In the Southwestern

A. n. Stlckney , president of the Chicago
Great Western road , accompanied by his

The trouble with
us nowadays is , that
we do not lead nat

inine portion of our
society is especially
culpable in this way.
It is really a wonder
that women are as
healthy as they are.
Very few women get
any outdoor exer
cise. Very many pet
no exercise at all.
Modes of dressing
interfere with the
action and with the
circulation of the
blood. All the hy
gienic laws arc bro
ken. It is little won-
dcr that nine women
in ten arc troubled
rith some derangement or irregularity in
the action of ( he organs distinctly feminine.
Neglect and wrong living will show them
selves first in the most delicate organs of
the whole body. With such weakness and
sicklies * so prevalent , it is to be expected
that the bearing of children would be
fraught with dread and danger. It should
not be so , of course. Nature never meant
It to be so. The performance of the high
est function of which a woman is capable
should not bs accompanied by pain. If
perfectly natural living were the rule , it
would not be so. As lives arc lived , some
thing else must be done. A remedy must

the cheap rates to northwestern points will

With parties ot ten or more the tickets will

Pacific has declined to participate In the
cheap fare tourney , and the reduced rates
will , therefore , not apply to California points.
The local passenger agents are getting
around this obstacle by belling tickets to
Portland for $20 , and advising the tourists
desirous of visiting California points to take
the steamer from Portland to San Francltco
at the rate of $7.50 each , making the rate

Whllo the plan to purchase the now truck
and hose wagon that have been secured by
the exposition association , as soon as the exposition -
position Is over promises to satisfy a part of
the demand for new apparatus for the fire
department , these will not altogether meet
the requirements. The exposition truck will
meet the demand for a truck at Tweuty-
aevonth and Lcavenworth streets and thus
furnish a long needed protection to that part
of the city. Chief Hcdcll has frequently
called attention to the fact that the -truck at
Twenty-fourth and Cumlng street is now re
quired 'to answer alarms as far southwest
aa Hanscom Park and by the time it liaa
made this long trip , It is too late to bo of
service. With a truck located at Twenty-
seventh and Loavcnworth streets this diffi
culty will bo relieved , but the necessity for
replacing thu old No. 3 truck with a modern
pattern will remain. This truck Is so an
tiquated and cumbersome as to bo practi
cally ucoless in comparison with a modern
hook and ladder apparatus and It has gone
beyond thu stage at which it can bo suc
Chief He Jell says that the two hose wagons
will be required to replace two that are now
out of < latc. No. 4's wagon Is too old to be
ictalncd In service and No. 1's wagon Is
also a cumbersome relic that should bo re
placed by a modern \chlclc. Aside from that
It Is the opinion of the chief that two new
hose companies should DC located In order
to thoroughly piotect the city. There Is a
stretch of two and one-third miles between
No. 1's house at Twenty-fourth and Cumlng
streets and No. ll's at Thirtieth and
Spauldlng. An additional company should

fire is conseijucnty likely to get a tremendous
start before a stream can be turned on. If
ono company was located at feomo point on
thu high ground It would be able to hold a

climbing the hill.
Whllo ho would like to have one or two
more engines , Chief Hedell docs not urge
their purchase at this time , as ho consider
the older apparatus mentioned more essential.
The engines , now In service would bc > ade

conflagration more would bo needed. The
chief contends tlwt theco la not a city In
the country in which the flro department Is

The arrival of spring weather , with the
gradual disappearance of the mud and Ice
from the pavements is making a perceptible
difference In the burdens carried down town
by the motor trains In the morning. The
bicycle brigade is rapidly filling up and
hundreds of people who have been patroniz

the paved streets. The reappearance of the
bicycles has been promptly followed by a
vigorous protest against the condition of the
pavements on some of the principal streets.
Cumlng street in particular is so cut up with
holes that It Is almost Impassable for a wheel
after dark , and several other thoroughfares
are In very little better condition. It is not
likely that the Board of Public Works will

Contractor Mi-Cloud 1oirn < lo Get
Work IInil IT Way Soon.
Work on the upper stories of the federal
building will bo commenced very soon. In
fact , it has already begun. Contractor Angus
McCloud of Minneapolis has been hero several
days and has been taking measurements on
all the floors preparatory to securing the ma
terial needed. L\e soon as an active start Is
once made. Contractor McCloud says that
the work will be rushed. He has a year from
February 15 In which to complete his con
tract , but he states that ho will finish con
siderably sooner. The contract calls for the
expenditure ot about JS5.000.
Active work , however , will not commence
for a couple of weeks yet. According to the
contract McCloud Is not permitted to use
any part of the completed first floor of the
building in his work. ! Ho consequently can
not use the permanent elevator shaft to
hoist his material. He has been compelled
therefore to put In a temporary elevator ,
which will bo erected on the rear and out
side of the building. The contract for this
work baa been let to the Klmball Elevator
company of Council Bluffs , and the power
will be furnished by the Industrial Iron
works of this city. Work on this will com
mence Immediately. It will take ten days
or two weeks to put In this elevator. As
soon as It Is ( lnluhed Contrator McCloud will
Vut about twenty men to work and In a
couple more weeks he expects to Increase
this force to fifty.
There Is but one other contract to be
let on the building , end that Is for tbe
permanent elevators , which will bo located
directly to the north ot tbe Sixteenth street
entrance. The contract Is almost ready to be
let , but ttils may be delayed for a time be
cause Congressman Mercer Ic endeavoring to
have electric Instead of hydraulic elevators
The- contract for the clock and bell In the
tower Is also to bo let In two or three days.
It is impossible to tell yet when those will
bo put In place.

\uturnl Itmcllon Following Hltf
NEW YOHK , March G. The stock market
has arrived at that dull and sluggish con
dition which always follows a long con
tinued upeculntivo movement , followed by
liquidation. The liquidation was completed
before the violent break of last week. A
sharp rally early In this week represented
the covering of short contracts put out In
loot week's decline. The culmination of the
rally was accented on Tuesday by the exag
gerated significance attached to the utter
ance of the secretary of the navy on the
Malno disaster. Some small traders looked
upon this rally as the upward course ol
prices. But they were speedily disabused
by the decline of Wednesday. Doth tin
stock and bond tnaijtet have fallen Into neg
lect and tend to sag from Inanition. Large
operators are out of the market and the
outsldo public shows no sign of Interest In It.
The only movement of prices outside of upo-
clul stocks affected by special causes la due
to manipulation by small traders. There haa
been some relaxation of Interior demands for
money on Now York , and this , together with
the gold shipments In transit hither , ho *
resulted In a somewhat easier condition In
the money market. A feature of the week
has been the changed attitude of London to
ward American securities , which have been
sold by that market. This belling ta largely
the result of the exchange and money situa
tion and demands on London for gold for
shipment to New York.
