The flrat week day ot the Peace Jubllco
ot the Transmlsalsslppl Exposition saw an
Immense crowd of visitors enter the city
through Its two passenger stations and one
shed , The Influx was more numerous than
was anticipated , previous railroad advices
being to the effect that the movement to
ward the first big Jubllco celebration would
_ oot set In before Tuesday.
All of the morning trains from Chicago
ivoro heavily filled. Thcro was not ono ot
the four Chicago-Omaha lines that had the
least kick coming on the amount of travel
it hauled In , but the big crowds were ob-
eerved to como In from the west. It the
attendance at the grand occasion may bo
prejudged by the advance guard the
transmlssourl states arc the ones that arc
going to bo the most numerously repre-
ecntcd. The Union Pacific's morning train
from tbo west arrived In two long sections ,
nil the noon train from Beatrice and
Stromsburg brought In a good crowd. The
Burlington brought in Its McCook express
at 0:35 : In two well filled sections , and the
Hastings train , twenty minutes before noon
delivered COO more Nebraakans to Omaha to
bo well taken care of until the last sky
rocket should bo sent up to tell the Inhabi
tants of Mars and other planets about the
glorious successes of the army and navy ot
tbo United States. In addition to the special
trains the afternoon express ot the Burling
ton from the west were In three sections , and
BO far the road has brought In during the
twenty-four hours ending at noon yesterday
nlnoty-ftvo carloads of Mlssourlans. A spe
cial train from the St. Francis branch ,
Kansas , arrived here at 5 p. m. yesterday
with over 1,000 excursionists.
The Missouri Pacific brought In just 2,434
people during the morning. Most of tbo
crowd came from Missouri to attend the
state celebration at the exposition grounds.
The train reports showed the following num
ber of passengers on the five trains : Six
hundred and twenty-Qvo from Kansas City ,
352 from Kansas City. 410 from Kansas City ,
647 from St. Louis and 500 from Auburn.
Demand for Kiiulpinent.
As the reduced rates to Omaha on account ]
f the Pcaco Jubilee were not available until
ono minute 'after midnight on Monday mornIng -
Ing the passenger men were surprised lo
BOO such a largo crowd como In on the morn
ing trains. , Many of the arrivals must
liavo left home before the reduced ratis went
into effect or else the ticket agents In their
homo towns pushed the clock hands ahead a
few hours.
There Is not a railroad superintendent In
Omaha that 'is feeling easy today. All of
them arc worried about the supply of pas
senger equipment for the crowds this week.
Ono of them remarked to a nee reporter :
"Tho crowd has started with a rush and I
don't know what it will do to us before the
week is over. " Superintendent of Trans
portation Buckingham ot the Union Pacific
has distributed a goodly supply of passenger
coaches at Grand Island , Columbus , Kearney
and other central points and the "Overland
Route" is probably better fixed for handling
the crowds than any other Omaha road1 , and
It is not feeling that it will have nn easy
time of ID. Superintendent Blgnell ot the
n. & M , hao everything In the way ot pas
senger equipment that is on wheels ready for
USD , b t ho Is fcnrful that ho Is going to
ruq short. Thirty odd tourist cars of the
Burlington b.ave been presort into service
and as the 'seats ore wide they arc being
made to accommodate three persons each.
The Burlington has also hauled out a
lot ot new coal cars , cleaned them
up and In case of emergency will
run temporary seats in them and use them
for sbcrt hauls into Omaha to help handle
tbo crowds.
An indication ot the popularity of the peacn
Jubilee throughout Nebraska is gleaned
through the fact that at all of the railroad
headquarters In the city telegrams wore re
ceived throughout the morning from station
agents in Nebraska , Kansas , Colorado , Wyo
ming and South Dakota , asking for addi
tional special tickets to Omaha "on account
ot the way our , citizens are lining up to at
tend the Peac' Jubllco at your exposition. "
The requests for moro tickets were sent by
telegraph and called for bunches of thirty ,
fifty , 100 and .even 200 , to be sent Imme
diately. '

Move by RiiNy HtiiKfft.
The special train of the Union Pacific car
rying Presidents Burt , Hughltt nnd Moliler
is making fairly good time. In Its daylight
trips across the country between here and
Salt Lake City. No attempt at any record-
breaking has yet been made , the presiden
tial party making a careful Inspection ot
the road by daylight and stopping at night.
They will probably reach Salt Lake City on
Tuesday morning. John P. Berry , chief
engineer of the Union Pacific , Is with the
Conjectures as to what will be the result ot
iho annual meetings of the Union Pacific and
the Oregon Short Line , to bo held In Salt
Lake City on Tuesday and Wednesday , con
tinue to bo heard from all segments of the
ralrroad circle , but little is definitely known.
Whatever la to bo the outcome will undoubt
edly be very similar to the plan arranged
among the presidents on the special trip to
the meetings. There Is a healthy rumor cir
culating to tbo effect that the directors to
be elected by the stockholders of the two
companies will meet In Salt Lake City this
week , and on the motion of Marvin Hughltt ,
president of the Northwestern , elect Horace
( ] , Burt president of the Union Pacific and
president of the Oregon Short Line , thus
taking the first step toward a consolidation
of the two lines. Opposed to this Is the re
port that the directors' meeting will bo lieM
at n later date In New York City , and that
nothing looking toward an amalgamation
will be accomplished until this time.

Nent SnritliiN KnntcMl.
Preparatory to the annual meeting of the
directors the Union Pacific railroad has just
made public a statement showing Its opera
tions far the six months ended Juno 30 last.
The period covered by this report Is only n
fraction ot a year during which the property
held by the company on Juno 30 , 1898 , was
taken over In parcels nnd at different times.
The acquisition of the branch lines and nux-
'ilfary properties had not been accomplished
until after that date. The report of the
operations of the company now made lsi
therefore , necessarily restricted. The re
port follows :
Gross receipts (1,849 miles . , - . . , . .
main line ) . $7,670,5.9 .
Operating expenses find
tuxes . . .
Net receipts from opcr-
iitlonB . $3,136,161

Interest on funded debt.lSOO,000
Adjustment of taxes paid. Ho.aiS l,91j,918
SurnlUH ( exclusive In
come brunch lines ) Jl.iJG.GSo
The Item of adjustment of taxes represents
taxes paid by the receivers In January Feb
ruary and March on the main line and Kan
sas and Denver Pacific lines In excess of the
amount of taxes apportioned to those months
and Included , In operating expenses and taxes
as shown above. As the company assumed
the payment of the full six months' interest
which fell duo on Its bonds on July 1 , 1898 ,
although It did hot begin to operate Its roads
until February 1 , 1898 , ( main line ) and
April 1 , 1898 , ( Kansas olid Denver lines ) ,
thcro has been Included In the earnings from
operation the net receipts from the opera
tion of those lines during the portion of time
in which they were not operated by the com
pany , the amount representing such net re
ceipts having been received by the company
from the receivers. No Interest Is charged
on the $5,000,000 first mortgage bonds owned
by the company , as they wero- received on
Juno 30 , 1898 , the coupon duo July 1 , 1898 * ,
having been cancelled. The Carbon Cut Off
.railway , Echo and Park City railway , Sallna
and Southwestern railway and Solomon rail
road are branch and auxiliary lines which
were severally operated .from January 1 to
Juno 30 , 1898 , by receivers or under their
own charter , and their earnings are not In
cluded In the statement given above. The
net earnings of these lines for the period
named wcro approximately $416,051) ) , which ,
if added to tha net results ot operation ot
the company , as above given , would make an
aggregate Of $4,189,263 of net income on thfa
basis of the 3,008 miles Which It Is Intended
to embrace In the system ot the company.
To supply new equipment there has been
appropriated from available cash resources
other than earnings from operation , and al
ready In greater part expended , the sum of
$2,4G5,024. The company will acquire 5,601
now freight cars , Increasing the tonnage ca
pacity of its freight equipment 169,525 tons.
Of the sum of $600,000 , being the proceeds
of the sale of the company's three-quarter
Interest In the Pullman equipment purchased
with the railroad property , set aside as an
Improvement and equipment fund , $417,451
has already been expended for new equip
ment. Expenditures amounting to $1,622-
740 have been authorized for the purchase
of rails and ties and for betterments. The
land grant lands and the land contracts now
absolutely owned by the company , or Indi
rectly owned by it through Its ownership of
the securities of the Union Pacific Land com ?
pany ( $100,000 stock and $10,000,000 bonds ) ,
have the following estimated value : Lands ,
6,577,000 acres of on estimated value of
$8,997,500 ; land contracts , $5,884,494 ; total
estimated value , $14,881,994. The Union Pa
cific has also acquired and owns all or a
largo majority of the securities and stock of
the following branch lines , now operated
by the receivers under foreclosure proceed
ings : Junction City and Fort Kearney ,
Kearney and Black Hills , Omaha and Repub
lican Valley and Union Pacific , Lincoln and
Colorado railways , having a total mileage of
801 miles. Arrangements have practically
been completed for the early acquisition of
the line of railroad from La Salle to Jules-
burg , Colo. , known as the "Julcsburg
Branch , " which will add 151 miles to the
system. The company also owns many mis
cellaneous assets , the principal of which are
all the stock and bonds of the Union Pacific
Coal company , two-fifths of the stock of the
Pacific Express company , and one-half of the
stock ot the Occidental and Oriental Steam
ship company.

When Grant Hlteshaw , a Wyoming cow
boy , and his Intended bride , 15-year-old
Maud Coy of Lusk , Wyo. , enter the county
clerk's ofllco here to obtain a marriage li
cense , as he has planned , he will fall Into
the arms of two police officers and will have
to answer to the charge of kidnaping.
A telegram from the girl's stepmother
from Lusk , Wyo. , authorizes IIteshaw's | ar
rest. In a terse way the telegram states
that the two have been keeping company
against the stepmother's wishes for some
tlmo past. A threat on the part of the step
mother to banish the girl to some relatives
In an eastern city Saturday forced Hlteshaw
to act as he did In order that he would not
lose his sweetheart. Late Saturday night
ho rode his broncho to the home
of hla sweetheart with another bron
cho equipped with a side saddle
leading behind. At a signal the girl lei
the house and mounted the saddled horse
and In nn Instant the young Lochlnvar nm
his to-be brldo were riding at full galloi
toward the nearest rahvay point.
Their departure was noticed and thej
were chased by the girl's relatives , but thpj
got to the depot first and were whirling
east In a train when the girl's cowboy rela
tives dashed up to the station In a cloiu
of dust. Some friends of Hltcshaw's told the
stepmother of their plans of getting mar

A current writer has referred to the people of this country as a "Nation of Bald
Heads , " and It would seem there was ample reason for the observation. The "front
row" at the opera , which has by mutual consent and custom been dedicated to
gentlemen with "high forchoadd , " lias now widened to the front six rows , and
threatens to monopolize all the parquctte seats. The condition among the ladles Is
as bad and If" anything worse. The uaytng , "XVomnn'u crowning glory Is her hair , "
In a majority ot casfH IB now a mere burlesque. U Is H common thing to hear the
complaint. "My hair Is coming out In ImmlrulH. ' or "My hair U nearly all gone. "
The condition of affairs noted above makea the visit of the lady representatives of
the Seven Sutherland Sisters to thin city particularly opportune Just at this time.
These Indies have hair over seven feet lour , grown with the celebrated Seven Suth
erland Bisters' Hair Grower. The wonderful BUCCCHH of the Hiilr Tonlo on their own
hair made these ladles enthusiastic on the subject of the hair and scalp and finally
led to their employment by the Seven Bisters , who have Inducted them Into the sci
ence of growing the hair.
For u few days these experts may be aeen and consulted free of charge at tha
well known pharmacy of Sherman & McConnell Druir Co. on Dodge street between
the old and new poHtoftlces. Their beautiful hair alone Is worth a trip to Omaha
from any part of the state nnd will form one of Omaha's principal attractions Jublle *
