NEW DIVISION IS PLANNED
Rock Island Lines West of Missouri
River to Be Bear
ranged. It was learned yesterday that the present
.eastern division of the Chicago, Rock
Island ft Pacific railroad west of the Mis
souri river is to be divided Into two di
visions, the change to date from May 10.
That means a new division superintendent
for the extra division, and this place will
probably go to Mr. Burleigh at Falrbury,
Neb., now assistant superintendent of the
present eastern division under Division
Superintendent Jones at Horton, Kan.
The eastern division comprises the line
from Council Bluffs to Philippsburg, Kan.,
from Kansas City to Topeka, from St. Jo
seph to Harrington, Kan., from Horton.
Kan., to Falrbury, Neb., from McFarland,
Kan., to Belleville, Kan., and from Falr
bury, Neb., to Nelson, Kan. Tbe new
division as planned will embrace all the
lines named except that between Council
Bluffs and Phlllippsburg and between
Falrbury and Nelson. The reason for the
change Is that the present aize of the east
ern division makes it unwieldy. No change

HEAVY INCREASE IN MONEY
Over Three Millions Gain Reported for
the Week by Got ham's Anno
NEW YORK. April 26. Tbe New York
Examiner this week says:
The official statement of the New York
associated banks for last week showed an
Increase of $3,325,500 In cash, of which
1761,600 consisted of specie and 82,563.300
This increase of cneb Is only $811,200 be
low that which was estimated from the
traceable movements of money during the
week, the estimated sum being $4,613,600.
In the previous week there waa a difference
between tbe estimated and the official gain
of $1,173,900, the latter being $860,100, while
the former was $2,134,000. This wide dif
ference, It was then believed. Indicated
that the statement was made on rising
averages, which belief it now appears was
most likely correct. Therefore It would
seem that the bank returns of last week
reflected aotual conditions as regards cash
more closely than has been tbe case. Tbe
cash movement was well distributed
throughout the week, money coming from
nearby points in fair amounts each day, at
tracted by the opportunities for employ
ment in the New York market, and it
seemed to be evident that the monetary
tide had quite decidedly set toward this
center not only from neighboring cities,
but from all parts of tbe country. The
loans were decreased $1,097,300, making
$13,829,300 since April 12, Inclusive, during
which period stock transactions were In
The reduction In loans last week appear
to reflect continued conservallem on the
part of the banks. Tbe requirements of
stock commission houses have been largely
met with offerings from country bankers
in the West, who have loaned the balances
with their New York correspondents, also
stock exchange borrowers have been en
abled to obtain all the money they needed
elsewhere than from the local banks or
The deposits were Increased last week
$7,112,400. The statement Is therefore out
of harmony, the gain in cash less the loss
in loans calling for an increase In deposits
of $2,228,200. The required reserve was
augmented by $443,100, which amount, de
ducted from tbe gain In cash of $3,325,300,
leaves $2,882,400 as the increase In surplus
reserve. This Item now stands at $9,461,
050, against $16,759,775 at the correspond
ing date last year.
The cash changes by individual banks
were comparatively small during the week.
Nine Wall street institutions showed a net
gain of $12,200,000, two of this number In
dicated an increase of $4,100,000 and one
a decrease of $1,400,000. The bank clear
ings for the week were nearly $2,000,000,000,
an Increase of $369,710,010.
