For Saturday , Sunday and Monday , the
last three days of the Transmlsslsslppl Ex
position , the lines entering Omaha from the
I' north , south and west have made wonderfully -
( ' fully low rates. With a couple of excep
tions the rates are the lowest that have
been granted to the exposition during its
lifetime and will undoubtedly "clean up
all the exposition travel remaining along
the Nebraska lines. "
The rates to bo offered on these three
days will amount to 80 per cent of the one
way fare for the round trip to Omaha from
all points within 200 miles of
Omaha , except east of the Mie-
ourl river. Up to date the Chi
cago-Omaha lines have not announced any
reduced rate * for the closing days of the
exposition. The matter Is now under con
sideration and it Is possible that the Iowa
lines may follow the worthy example of the
While the rates agreed upon by the Ne
braska lines are supposed to bo limited to a
radius of 200 miles , they are not. The Union
Pacific Is going to allow the people of North
Platte , 294 miles from Omaha , to enjoy the
rates. The Burlington will apply the rates
from Holdrege , which Is beyond the 200-mile
radius , and if any one from McCook or Ox
ford wants to come in to help celebrate the
last days of the fair it Is probable they will
not be denied the low rates.
The tickets on these rates will bo offered
for eale on Saturday morning for the first
time by these railroads : The Union Pacific ,
the Burlington , the Elkhorn , the Missouri
Pacific , the Hock Island and the Omaha
road. They will be sold nil day on Saturday
nnd Sunday and for all trains arriving In
Omaha on Monday morning , The final re
turn limit on all the tickets will bo Tues
day night , November 1.
All of the passenger officials are confident
that the rates will bring In an enormous at
tendance. It Is expected that more people
will be attracted to Omaha for the closing
day than for the opening day. This will be
in accord with the policy of the railroads ,
which offered very few concessions at the
start of the big show , but In the latter days
have named the lowest rates ever quoted to

One of the Men Killed AVnit to Ilnvc
llecn Mnrrleil Monilny.
The aftermath of the Union Pacific wreck
at Silver Creek , Nob. , on Wednesday , brings
to light ono of the saddest stories known In
local railroad circles for many a day. Wil
liam B. Shannon , the head brnkeman of
freight train No. 27 , who died from his in-
jtirlee , was to have been married next Mon
day to Miss Louise Snyder of Sioux City , la.
The wedding was originally set for Tuesday
of this week , the day before the wreck oc
curred , but an Shannon had just started to
work for the Union Pacific , and wanted to
got a start with the company , It wan
thought best to postpone the ceremony until
Miss Snyder came down from Sioux City
yesterday , and will accompany the re
mains of the dead brakeman to his former
home at Dcnnlson , 0. , this afternoon.
Before coming to Omaha Shannon bad
lived In Sioux City , where ho was employed
on one of the Northwestern lines.
The funeral of Samuel Illndman , the Union
Pacific engineer who was killed In tbo
wreck , will not take place from his late
residence in this city , but from his foimer
borne In Grand Island , Neb. The funeral
services will be held there on Saturday
morning. The remains were taken to his
old homo In Grand Island from Silver Creek
yesterday. His wife and family went out to
Grand Island this afternoon , occupying a
special private car on the "Fast Mall" train
through the courtesy of General Manager
The funeral of William II. Kenan , the
Union Pacific fireman who was killed In
the same collision , will bo held at St. Fran
cis Xavlcr's church , Council Bluffs , on Sat
urday morning at 0 o'clock. The remains
will be accompanied from his late residence ,
1019 North Eleventh street , to thu church
and from the church to the CatholK ceme

Special Trnlnn Nreeniinry to Ilnndle
As the time for exposition excursions
grows shorter the Omaha terminal lines
continue to bring In increasing crowds of
visitors. The Northwestern this afternoon
had three special excursions in addition to
their regular trains. The first arrived at
1:45 : p. m. and the other two followed
within nn hour. They were from Gilbert ,
Carroll , Boone and other points In Iowa.
The Ilock Island had two special trains
from the west at 11 a , m. yesterday ,
nnd both wore well filled. A party of S50
excursionists from points on the Northwest
ern In Minnesota , between the stations of
Rochester and Tracy , came Into the Web
ster street station late Thursday night. It
was in charge of Freight and Passenger
Agent Van Camp of the Northwestern at
Rochester , Minn. , and K. M. Weston , trav
eling agent of the Northwestern , from \V1-
nona , Minn. The regular trains of the Bur
lington and the Union Pacific brought m
lluavy crowds from the west yesterday ,
and the outgoing trains were equally well
filled with returning excursionists. The Mis
souri Pacific hits an cxcttrslon here of 1,350
people from Atchlion , Kan. , and vicinity ,
to stay hero until Sunday.

There Is great Interest manifested In local
railroad circles over the annual meeting of
the directors of the Oregon Short Line ,
which will be held In New York City this
afternoon. As ten out of the fifteen direct
ors who were recently chosen by the stock
holders nt Salt Lalio City nro Union Pacific
representatives there are many who believe
the Union Pacific will force the election of
Its own president at this meeting.
Two names are most frequently heard In
connection with the presidency of the Oregon
gen Short Line. These nro IMward Dickin
son , general manager of the Union Pacific ,
and H. G. Hurt , president of the Union Pa
cific. Should the latter be chosen he would
undoubtedly fill both offices. Should Mr.
Dickinson bo made president of the Short
Line , and accept it , it Is believed bo would
remove from here to Salt Lake City and act
1 as president and general manager of the
Short Line. It is not thought that Samuel
Curr , now president of the Oregon Short
Line , will be re-elected.
Thu results of the annual meeting of the
Union Pacific directors In New York City on
Thursday were just what were anticipated.
K. II. Harriman was again chosen chairman
of the exccutlvo committee. H. G. Hurt was
re-elected president , nnd all of the other
officers of the board were continued In their
( iincUol on the Pintle Illver.
Omaha passenger men pleasantly remem
ber John E. Gunckel , who represents the
Lake Shore road at Toledo , O. Ho visited
Omaha in July when the fishermen of two
continents assembled here and ho was to
pleased with what ho saw that ho went back
and worked up the party that came out hero
last month fiom his home town.
Like all Gaul , Gunckel's work In Toledo
Is divided Into three parts. Ho writes copy
for the reporters when they run bhort , rus
tles passenger business nnd tells fish stor
ies. The latter Is his long suit. Ono of
the greatest he ever told was when ho wrote
the following for the Toledo Bee and the
Omaha Bee after n trip across the plains of
Nebraska on the Union Pacific. This is
what be eays :
While riding along the waterless Platte. 1
asked Captain A. G. Shearman , the general
agent of the Union Pacific , where the cow-
boyn nnd farmers procured their fish. Mr.
Shearman said : "Tho bottom of thu Plutto
looks as dry as a temperance meetlne. but
It Is deceiving. The riverbed it nulcksand.
eight feet In depth , a stranco. active mass
of moving earth and water , although you
can't nee It move perfectly dry nnd hot on
top. I stopped off at Ocallala last summer
and saw the cowbovs fish. The Platte con
tains but one species of fish , a gulf catfish ,
which crows to the enormous weieht of 250
or more pounds and has greater strength
than an ordinary Nebraska mule. Its
power lies In Its success in shovlne Itself
through the quicksand. The boys dig a hole
ten feet square , eight feet deep In the bed
of the Platte. The catfish , through some
Instinct , finds this hole and remains for a
time. The cowbovs fish this hole. It must
be done within a few hours after It is made
quicksand boon shuts it up. Thev use
young prnlrlo dogs as bait. The summer
afternoon In mind they caught four cat
fish weighing 180 pounds each.
"Hero is the strange part. While the
boys usually catch five or six catfish out of
each hole , when evenlne came thov had but
four , so tliev baited their hook and tied the
line to a cornstalk. A mule crazing nearbv
came along during the ntcht. and whllo eat
ing the cornstalk somehow his lees became
entancled In the fish line. Ono of these
blc catfish bltlnc at the bait started In
the quicksand and with such strength that
he pulled In the mule. The boys were com
pelled to again dig out the hole. Thev found
the mule and the catfish , the latter weigh
ing 241 pounds. Of course the mule was
dead. It Is said mules avoid tbo river bed
of Platte. "
Men In the City.
There are a host of passenger men In the
city. Some of them have como to
see the exposition in Its closing days and
others are hero to sco If they can set a
share of the travel of the Midway folks and
other exposition Inhabitants when they
leave the city next week. There Is a big
scramble for the Midway business and
rumors of all kinds of reduced rates are
rife. Oc the other hand , one of the joint
agents representing the Western Passenger
association has taken a list of the Midway
people , and promises to report any line
that shaves the rate for them.
Among the visiting passenger men are :
General Western Passenger Agent Jerome
and Traveling Passenger Agents Vanderpool
and Merrill of the New York Central , Trav
eling Passenger Agents Branch of the Erie ,
Selnworth of the Michigan Central , Foley
of the Pennsylvania , McNutt of the "Katy , "

Throughout the exposition the travel on
the trolley line between Omaha and Council
Dluffs has been heavy. This has been espe
cially true during the last month. A great
number of strangers come to the corner of
Fourteenth and Douglas streets every morn
ing to take the car for the Ufufls. As there
la n double track there many of them stand
and let several cars coming from the Bluffs
go by , thinking they will como back on the
other track , but the cars continue around
the loop. It has been suggested that the
conductors of the Bluffs cars could save lots
of Inconvenience to visitors if they would
call out the cars and their destinations at
this busy corner.
