When the Illinois Central nnd the Chicago
Great Western railroads , or cither one of
the two lines now headed for Oniahn , obtain
an entrance hero they will use a plot ot
ground In the vicinity of Twelfth and Dav
enport streets for depot purposes.
Since last February ground In this part
of the city has been quietly obtained , a lot
nt n , time , until now the parties who nre
making ready for the cntranco of the new
railroads nro In possession of property
located In the following blocks : No. 23 , .
from Cass to California and from Eleventh i
to Twelfth ; No. Z'j , from Cass to Chicago >
and from Twelfth to Thirteenth : No. 38 , '
from Cats to Chicago nnd from ElevcnUli to
Twelfth ; No. CO , from Chicago to Davenport ;
nnd from Twelfth to Thirteenth ; No. Cl ,
from Chicago to Davenport nnd from Elev
enth to Twelfth : No. C2 , from Chicago to
Davenport nnd fro ; . Tenth to Eleventh.
Nearly every pto./jrtv owner In this part
of the city hac b' tn approached by some
ngcnt of the Omnlia Bridge and Terminal
railway , or auxiliary company , during the
last half year , nnd Informed that his prop
erty was desired nt nn early date on ns rea-
Bonablo terms ns could bo secured. The
southwest corner of Twelfth nnd Cass has
been spoken for. The lot on the corner ot
Eleventh and Chicago streets , owned by
John D. Crolghton , nnd now occupied by a
barn , has drawn'nn offer of $12,000 , but Is
held at $16,000.Tho agent who looks after
the property cast of Thirteenth street , near
California , on which the lumber yard of C.
N. Diets ! Is located , has been asked to
wrlto to Boston to secure the lowest terms
for the , ground. Other offers have been
made nnd negotiations are now pending for
moro than twenty lots In the locality named.
Oiit'rntlniiN Ciii'rlu.l on Uiilt'tly.
The lots that have already been pur
chased nro not recorded as having been
Bold to any railroad company or other
corporation. So far as the deeds nro con
cerned the lots have been evidently bought
by men arid women not previously known to
speculate in real estate deals. Ostensibly ,
a number of clerks In law offices and rail
way companies , school teachers boarding in
llio families of railroad officers , nnd other
citizens not previously known na property
holders have during the last six
months f decided -to purchase ono or
moro lots nplcco In the neighborhood of
Twelfth nnd Davenport streets. It Is worthy
of note that nearly all of the ground In
Council Bluffs that has recently changed
hands and is so admirably located for n
now railroad has been bought by incon-
eplcuous females. Friends of the officers ot
the Omaha IJridgo and Terminal railway and
attaches of the law firm of Green &
Urcckonridgo , which has been handling the
transfer of the property for the prospective
railroads , have been numerous among the
Investors ot land in the locality named , and
most of Clio deeds recorded have been made
oul ) returnable to Green & Breckcnrldgo. It
will bo recalled that the same law firm
handled the deal for C. H. Van-
Duscu with the city whereby the
former secured the Wlnspear tract
of ground on. the river front for an unnamed
railroad eorporntlon. This combination
ot circumstances leaves no doubt in the
tulnds ot those who have been closely fol
lowing eyonts pointing toward thq , entrance
of another rallioad that groujid Is being
secured for terminal purposes.
There has been moro or less excitement
among the property owners in the locality
ever since purchases of various lots by un-
Icnown parties began to bo made. The ex
citement Increased with the talk of the en
trance ot another railroad , and It rose to
fever heat when the Omaha Bridge nnd
Terminal railway recently asked the city
council to vncnto n number of streets and
alloys in tbo neighborhood so that it might
lay tracks thereon. On Sunday last n num-
her ot the property holders got together nnd
resolved that they wnnted to know where
the now line was going to run. On Monday
they sent up a delegation of thirty
to the city hall to demand that
a map of the proposed route bo filed. Coun
cilman Bechel said ho would sco that this
was done before the ordinance vacating the
directs and alleys in favor of the railroad
came up before the council on Monday
Terminal Comimiiy'N Interest.
When a Dee reporter called on General
Manager Webster of the Omaha Bridge and
Terminal railway yesterday , ho was go
ing over a map ot the proposed line , run
ning diagonally through the section of the
city from Fourteenth nnd Webster streets
down to Eighth street and Capitol avenue ,
with General Superintendent Nichols. Asked
the object of securing track privileges In
that part of the city , .General Manager Wot-
6ter said : "Our flrst object is to secure a
connection with the tracks of the Burlington -
ton railroad. This wo agreed to do witliln
n , period of five years sorao time ago ,
nnd that period hns now nearly
expired. I do not Just where the connec
tion with the Burlington will bo made , but it
will bo soniewhoro between Eighth and
Eleventh streets nnd between Chicago street
nnd Cnpltol avenue.
"Our secondary purpose in building a rail
road through this part ot the city Is to affect
n connection with the Missouri Pacific
tracks on California street at some point
cast of Thirteenth street.
"In addition to this wo want property and
a rlglit to lay tracks In this part of the
city for what8vSr.IcsIUraoto railroad uses
may later develop. "
"What nboutfprovldlng terminal facilities
for the Illinois Central and the Chlcnpri ;
Great Western railroads , Mr. Webster ? "
"If any BUh use U desired of our tracks
they win to there , that's all I can say.
Personally , I know nothing about the en
trance o the roads. "
Cournfot DclliiHcly Fixed.
With this remark the general manager
dismissed the subject , nnd returned to the
location of the tracks of his company. Ho
said : "I cannot fllo with the city a map
showing our exact route by Monday next ,
for the very reason that the
route has not been fully deter
mined. The general direction of the
line has been fixed , but If certain prop
erty owners down there Insist on asking ex
orbitant prices for their land , wo shall
have' to change oiir route and lay the
tracks across lots that can bo procured
moro cheaply. Wo want considerable land
In the vicinity of which wo have asked to
have the streets nnd alleys vacated. Per
haps wo may locate a depot on the lot
between Davenport and Capitol avenue and
between Eleventh and Twelfth , or wo may
build a depot between Chicago nnd Daven
port nnd between Twelfth and Thirteenth
streets. It depends on how reasonable
terms wo can secure for land. Of course a
depot dowi thrttre would be a. freight depot. "
As shown on the map of the new line
'thus far drawn , the route comes down Four
teenth street from the north yards , and be
tween Burt nnd Webster streets swings over
to Thirteenth street. This will necessitate
running a track around the west sldo of
the Union Pacific shops , and it Is understood
the Union Pacific has signified that It will
offer no objection to this. Then the line
will run almost south along Thirteenth
street to about Casa , where It will turn
toward the southeast , cutting the blocks
diagonally till the connection with the Bur
llngton tracks Is reached , somewhere bc >
twecn Eighth and Eleventh nnd Chicago
street nnd Capitol avenue. Between Cass
nnd Chicago streets the proposed tracks
swing out to the west , nnd Increase from two
to eight In number.
The connection between this route nnd the
tract of land recently secured from the city
1 on the river front near Nicholas street Is
said by watchful railroad men to bo in the
fact that the Wlnspear tract will be used
for the location of a round house nnd divi
sion shops , < the streets previously mentioned
to bo exclusively used for terminal tracks
and depot privileges.
UMOX PACIFIC PAYS A DIVIDEND.
Flrnt Money StorUlioluVrn Ilnvc Seen
for Many YOUTH.
NEW YORK , Sept. 22. The Union Pacific
' Railroad company has declared a 'dividend
, of 114 per cent on KB preferred stock.
The announcement that the : eorgunbed
Union Pacific railroad had declared a divi
dend was very favorably commented on by
the few officials of the "Overland Uoute"
now at headquarters in this city. The divi
dend was not unexpected as rumors of its
coming were , received from Wall street moro
than a month ago. It Is said to bo the flr&t
dividend the Union Pacific road has declared
slnco 1884 , or ten years before the com
mencement of the receivership. As the company - .
pany was only reorganized on February 1
of this year the early conversion of tbo
great railroad property Into a money earner
nttracta attention to the new administra
tion and Is indicative of economical manage
ment combined with good business during
the last seven months.

During the Day.
All of the railroads entering Omaha
transacted a lucrative amount of passenger
luslness yesterday morning. Tno- exposition
xcurslonlsts began to arrlvo at 7:30 : , and
was time for the noon whistles
o chlmo their calllnpo refrain before the
treet cars had hauled all ot the morning
rrlvals away from the railway terminal
The general passenger agents of the
mnha terminal lines expressed their
iplnlon of the Modern Woodmen of America
n most complimentary terms. The or-
.anlzatlon turned out moro numerously to
clebrato Its day at the exposition than
, as any other secret society. The result
, -as that the street cars had moro people
> ound for the exposition grounds than they (
ould cxpcdlttously handle , and the
canisters who fitted up their wagons with
cnts found that the improvised carry-alls
lelded them a snug profit. The boards
ised for Beats must have cost at least 37
cnts , and It was a poor solicitor of traffic
, o the exposition who could not drive over
ho route ot the over-worked street car
Ines and pick up that many dollars during
The Woodmen came from all directions ,
ut the grand commonwealth of Nebraska
, vas the best represented , and the railroads
.hat operate lines in this state had their
rains moro than crowded. The travel over-
lowed the Union Pacific depot , the
now Burlington depot and the
iVobster sticet station. . A largo
number of the visiting Woodmen were
akcn directly to the exposition grounds by
ho Missouri Pacific. This road brought
n over 3,600 people to the exposition on
ts regular morning trains and six specials.
The travel came from points In soulh-
lastern Nebraska , from points along fhe
Central Branch in Kansas and from along
ho main Hne In Kansas and Missouri. The
noteworthy fact in connection with this
argo influx over the Missouri Pacific was
.hat 510 came in on the special , traln from
.Incoln , and , according to their badges ,
ver300t of these came from the Capital
3lty Itself. The Missouri Pacific is the
eng line between Lincoln and Omaha , and

Drove Too J\enr tlie TrncUn.
A. E. R. William of Kansas came up to
Papllllou , Neb. , and purchased n good buggy.
At the time ho thought ho had secured a
good bargain , nnd enjoyed some fine day
dreams of the show ho would make In his
homo town with his Nebraska equipage.
But he hasn't got it now. Its component
parts are scattered along the right-of-way
ot the Union Pacific railroad In the imme
diate vicinity of Papllllon. In leaving the
town Mr. William of Kansas hitched the
buggy to an emigrant wagon ho was driv
ing. Hearing the railroad crossing he saw
the eastbound "Overland Limited" express
coming along pretty fast , but he knew ho
and his emigrant wagon could get across
n front of it. Ho hadn't counted on the second
end section of his train. That ts the reason
why the bargain buggy is distributed along
the track , while the emigrant wagon was
not harmed. . .Mr. "William remarked , "It
never touched me. "

The Ione Woman Traveler.
The "new woman" doesn't propose to
miss the delights of travel simply for lack
f a protector. She knos how to take care
of herself , and when she starts off on a
Ittlo Journey nowadays It Isn't jwltli the
lervous dread that something's going to
lappen before she reaches'her destination
f ever she docs , but she proceeds at once
o make herself comfortable nnd to thor-
iughly enjoy her little rub up against the
But , although she rests secure In a de
Ightful feeling pf safety , It has never oc-
urred to the gfeneral woman that "making
icr to travel In1' safety" is a business all
She may have heard , for example , that
ho great New York Central railroad Is the
inly route in the United States that Is com-
letely equipped with the world-famous lock
And block system of signals , but that doesn't
nean anything to her until you explain that
> y this' syst3in every foot over which she
ravels is carefully and unceasingly watched
tnd signaled day and night that collision Is
practically Impossible , because a train
cannot enter a given block or section until
he train ahead has passed out , and that
ivon If there shbuld bo another train follow-
ng on the same track the engineer knows
all about It through the elcctrlo telegraph ,
ivhlch Is part of the system , thus making
assurance doubly sure.
If tbo lone woman happens to bo going to
York City she need have no dread of
andlng alone In the confusion of a big ,
strange place If she travels by the New York
entral. All she has to do Is to speak to
ono of the red-capped attendants free serv-
ce who will carry her bag , answer her
questions , nnd show her to cab , car or clu-
Another thing , she lands right In the heart
of the city within a step of a dozen or moro
of Its leading hotels , and she should bear
In mind that this Is the only railroad depot
In all New York City.
The Now York Central might bo aptly
called the "lono woman's route. " Fashions.
