Agent * .
The Burlington Is neck and neck with the
Union Pacific In the scheme of advertising
the exposition through newspaper men. Fol
lowing up the announcement made by the
latter , the former has offered a similar prop
osition to any and all newspaper men In
Illinois , Missouri , Iowa , Wisconsin , Michi
gan , Minnesota , Ohio and Indiana. The
tales mentioned are In the territory covered
by General Passenger Agent Eustls of the
Chicago , Burlington & Qulncy and , the an
nouncement was made by him. He Is In the
city with a big bunch of eastern Burlington
passenger agents who are looking over the
exposition and will go back east to relate
to the people Its coming glories.
The newspaper workers will bo supplied
vrlth free transportation for themselves and
wives , which will be good at any time be
tween now and the opening day ot the ex
position , Juno 1 , They will be allowed their
own time for taking the trip. The result
of this scheme Is expected to be a wide ad
vertising of the big show in the states from
which the newspaper men will come.
The Burlington is going a step farther and
Intends to have a big majority of Its pas
senger agents posted by personal observa
tion on the exposition. As an example , all
the agents stationed along the lines ot the
road In Illinois , Iowa and Missouri will bo
brought to this city before Juno 1. They
will come In parties , will bo shown what a
good thing Omaha has In store tor the people
ple ot the United States and will then be
requested to push it along.
Educating : the Aarents.
'A starter has already been made In this
plan , as a big crowd of eastern agents were
In the city yesterday and are being put
through a course ot Instruction on the expo
sition. They have been gathered under the
urine of General Passenger Agent EustU
himself , who also felt like getting a few
pointers on the big show. The
party Includes the following :
Harry E. Heller , district passenger agenl
at Allentown , Pa. ; J. N. Merrill , genera !
southern agent with headquarters at At
lanta , Ga. ; W. J. O'Meara , New England
passenger agent from Boston ; J. M. Been-
tel , division passenger agent ot Burlington

T. A. Grady , excursion agent , ot Chicago ;

H. Waltz of New York.
The entire party was taken out * to the
exposition grounds yesterday in charge
ot the exposition's official chaperone , Major
Clarkson. They will be In the city for a
day or two.
Assistant Passenger Agent Smith says he
expects big results to come from a thor
ough posting of the eastern agents on the
ixposltlon. He believes that the foreign
ravel this year will be light. Steamship
> erths are selling for any old thing that
hey can bring and seaside cottages are
being pretty nearly given away. This IB
all the result ot the war. The consequence
will bo that people will come out west for
heir summer trips , and If the smooth pas
senger agent , after seeing what the exposl-
lon Is going to be , can not con them into
coming to this city ho will be considered a
promising candidate for the Spanish army
and will be shipped across the pond , trans-
After Vlewlnor the Ground * .
Among all the visiting Burlington repre
sentatives there was expressed the greatest
admiration for the grounds and the buildings
ot the exposition after tlulr return from a
visit at the grounds. General Passenger
Agent Eustls said : "The progress made on
be grounds and the buildings reflects credit
on those in charge of the Institution. I I ad
not seen the buildings since April ] , and
.hey have certainly gotten along veil. They
are beautiful and attractive. I have no
doubt but that a large attendance will visit
the city during the months the exposition
will open. To my mind It seems as though
the crowds must be Increased by the war
scare. European travel and seashore vaca
tions are not going to be at all popular with
a naval war in progress. I asked the gen
eral manager of a big transatlantic steam
ship company the other day It I could get a
stateroom for early this summer , which or
dinarily you cannot do In May. Ho told mo
I could get a whole deck If I want it An
owner of a number of seashore cottages re
cently told me that 75 per cent of his cot
tages had not yet been engaged for the pres
ent season. The people are not going abroad
or to the seashore la large numbers. The
only question is , Will they travel ut all ? If
they do they'll come westward in greater
volume than before. If the people do come
west they are going to stop off at Omaha ,
though they may not make this city the
objective point ot jtheir Journey. In my
opinion there Is only one drawback in sight
and that is the surprising lack of first-class
hotel accommodations. .Th.ere will not be
enough of these to supply the demand. We
are planning to overcome this lack by secur
ing a large number of eastern par
ties who always Insist on the very
best accommodations to use private
cars when they _ come out here. We have
ample room to "place their cars , and I be
lieve that numerous parties , with from a
dozen to eighteen or twenty persons in A
porty/wlll * vfslt the exposition in this man
ner. Weare doing all , we can to boom
the exposition because we feel that It's
partly bur enterprise. The Burlington road
was the first to subscribe , and we are going
to try hard to get back the 130,000 that's
Invested In the'worthy enterprise. "
AdvertUlns Department at Work.
J. lU.Grlffltts , advertising agent ot the
Burlington at Chicago , said : "To show you
that we'are Interested- the Transmlssls-
slppl Exposition , we have got the biggest
party ot passenger men that has yet visited
the exposition here now. We are going to
follow this up with another party of out
southern representatives at an early date.
The advertising department la now at work
on an Issue of 250,000 large bird's-eye vlewa
to be scattered all over the country to help
advertise the exposition. "
W. J. O'Meara , New England passenger
agent , reported exceptional Interest in the
exposition in his territory , aa did also Harry
E. Heller , district piMenier tgc&t at Al-
Icntown , Pa. , who arranged for the accomo-
datlon ot a party of fifty prominent Phlla-
dcbhlans whllo he was here. They will
visit the exposition in July.
IJRINGING THE PEOPLE OUT WEST.
Eautcrn Trunk Line * at "Work to Tarn
the Tide of Summer Travel.
The eastern trunk lines ot railway are
taking an active Interest In the matter of
running excursions to the west by way of
Omaha as a means of diversion for the people
ple who usually spend the summer In Europe
or in the resorts along the Atlantic coast.
The Department of Publicity and Promotion
.s in receipt of a number'of letters from
the general passenger agents of these roads
regarding this matter , and all are to the
effect that the road represented by the
writer is making active preparations to
carry out the plan referred to.
General Passenger Agent George H. Dari
lels of the New York Central road says In
this connection that he has written to the
chairman of the Trunk Line association , re
questing him to bring this matter before
the association. Mr. Daniels says his road
will assist the movement in every possible
way , and will do all that can be done to
bring about arrangements for making low
rates to Omaha and the west for such
excursions. Mr. Daniels also states that he
has consulted with W. R. Corwln , an Influ
ential member of the Merchants' association
of New York , and he has agreed to use his
influence , which Is said to bo strong , to as
sist In the matter.
The local railways and the Department of
Publicity and Promotion are doing every
thing possible to bring about the arrange
ments for turning the traffic via Omaha with
stop-over privileges , allowing the excursion
ists to stop in Omaha as long as .they like.
Mlonrl' * Mineral * .
Dr. David T. Day , mining commissioner
for the exposition , has returned from a flyIng -
Ing trip to Missouri , where he went to look
Into the situation regarding a mining- ex
hibit from that state. He says that he
was agreeably surprised to find'the prepara
tions for the mining exhibit greatly In ad
vance of what bo had been led to believe.
He predicted that the Missouri mineral ex
hibit will be the finest ever made by the
state and will be of great scientific value.
The exhibit will completely fill all the
available space and will comprise every min
eral found within the borders of the state.
The material Is nearly all packed ready for
shipment and will commence to arrive in
Omaha early in the coming week.
Editor * Headed Thin Way.

ROCK ISLAND'S ' NEW RYER
Time and Distance Annihilatoi Added to the
TUNING-UP TRIP A GREAT. SUCCESS
Run of the Special Aero * * from the
Lake * to the Monntalu * Made
In Twenty-Four Hour * Jnt
for n Tct.
It was in 1867 that the first railroad to
) maha from Chicago was completed. H was
then considered fast time when the distance
of about COO miles was covered in twenty-
four hours. Recent experiments have dem
onstrated that trains can now be run be-
.ween tbo two cities In about nine hours'
: lme , whllb In the same time that thirty
rears ago was required to make the trip be-
.wecn Omaha and Chicago a train can now
go from Chicago to Denver , a distance ot
nearly 1,000 miles.
The first run of "Tho Rocky Mountain
Limited , " the new train of the Chicago ,
Rock Island & Pacific , was made from Chicago
cage to Denver in Just twenty-four hours.
It left Chicago on Thursday afternoon at
2:30 : o'clock , and arrived in Denver on Fri
day afternoon at 1:30 : o'clock. Allowing for
the one .hour difference in tlmo between the
two cities the actual time consumed by the
run was just a full day. The run
ning time was about three hours less
than the tlmo consumed because of the
stops , ono long delay at Green River , 111. ,
on account of an accident to a locomotive
contributing most toward the retardment ot
The first train of the Rock Island's new
train service between Chicago , Omaha and
Denver passed through Omaha yesterday
at 1:30 : a. mi , after one ot the most re
markable runs Across the state of Iowa ever
made by any railroad. The actual running
time of the new train , called "The Rocky
Mountain Limited , ' ! from Chicago to Omaha
was nine hours and fifteen minutes , lower
ing the best previous time between the two
cities by forty minutes.
The train left Chicago Thursday afternoon
at 2:30 : o'clock. It was expected that It
would reach Omaha about midnight , but
an accident , which happened at Green River ,
111. , delayed the train one hour and seven
minutes. Locomotive No. 1101 , Engineer
Albert Lund , lost one of Its driving wheels
through the melting ot tbo axle from a bad
hot box. Another locomotive had to be
secured from Rock Island , thirteen miles
away. Then the race to make up the time
lost by the accident began , and from the
record made across Iowa It Is probable that
the train will go Into Denver this afternoon
at 1:30 : o'clock a run ot twenty-four hours.
This la.tour hours and a half better than
the schedule. The speed on the Iowa divi
sions ranged from sixty-five to seventy-two
miles an hour. The last twenty-one miles
Into Council Bluffs were covered in eighteen
Breaks Record Early.
.The run from Chicago to Jollet , the first
forty miles out ot the eastern terminus ,
was made In forty-nine minutes , the best
previous time belnj ; fifty-five minutes. Most
of the running here was through the yards
and necessarily somewhat slow , especially
at Englewood. where the tracks are being
elevated. It took Just two hours and eigh
teen minutes to cover the 128 miles from
Jollet to Qreen River , 111. , where one of
the big driving wheels , weighing 6,600
pounds , suddenly left the engine and landed
In a nearby corn field. The actual stopping
time on account of this accident was one
bour and seven minutes , though more time
than this was lost in stopping and gcttlug
under headway with a new engine.
Engineer Hoover with ono of the 900
class engines then took hold ot tbo special
and got away from Green River at
6:47 : p. m. He went Into Rock Isl
and at 7:05 : p. m. The run from
Rock Island to Brooklyn , la. , a distance of
107 miles , was covered In 112 minutes of ac
tual running time and 118 minutes of tlmo
consumed. Des Molncs was reached at 10:30 :
p. m. The 176 miles up-grade from Rock
Island had been covered In three hours and
twenty-one minutes , though the running
time was less.
At Des Molnes Engineer Harry 'Bentloy ,
with locomotive No. 048 , took the train and
brought it Into Council Bluffs , f42 miles.
From sixty-two to seventy-five miles an
hour was maintained through the western
part of Iowa , the run from Neola Into Coun
cil Bluffs being at the rate of seventy-five
miles an hour. The arriving time at Omahn
was 1:32 : a. m. From Council Bluffs to
Philllpsburg the special was hauled by loco
motive No. 905 , Engineer Charles Laird.
From Ptiilllpsburg to Qoodland , Kan. , Engi
neer McSteln , with another of the 900 class
of engines , had the train In tow. The
arriving tlmo at Philllpsburg was 7:26 : a. m. ,
and Goodland was reached at 9:18 : , the 139
miles being covered In 155 minutes full
time. The boundary line between Kansas
and Colorado wcs reached at 9:42 : a. m. , and
Llmon , Colo. , at 11:30 : a. m. From Goodland
Into Denver the train was pulled by Engi
neer Boyle , and the latter city reached at
1:30 : on Friday afternoon. The greatest
burst of speed on the trip was on the Iowa
division , when the run from Stockton to Dumont -
mont was made at the rate of eighty-four
miles an hour. On the Illinois division the
best time was between Munooka and Mor
ris , eighty miles an hour.
Anticipate * a New Train.
The train was run as a special to Den
ver In order to Inaugurate the new train
service eastward from there on Sunday , the
same day a corresponding train will go
west from Chicago. All the cars have been
especially built for the new trains. The one
that passed through Omaha this morning
