chn gee were made affecting the relatione
of that concern with the Barber Asphalt

ROM OMAHA TO PITTSBURG
O vra Una Rssslsg
A continuous track of Its , awn from
Omaha to Pittsburg, Pa., will be In opera
tion by the Wabash by the first of 1901.
Word has Just been received by the local
Wabash office directly from President Ram
sey, who hsa recently returned from a trip
over the eastern end of the line, that the
extension Into Pittsburg is being rushed,
the construction work will be completed
on time, January 1, and the road ba thrown
open to transportation.
The recent acquisition by the Wsbash of
the Wheeling 6 Lake trie, beginning at
the Wabash's old Lake Eels termlnous and
extending to Jewett, O., takes tha Wabash
within sixty-one miles of the Smoky City,
and the remainder of tha way Is being built
as rapidly as possible. Soma of tbs ties
and rails are already laid.
Owing to the fact that tha company la
building two large and complicated bridges,
one over the.phlo, and the Other over the
Monongabela rlvera, aa means -of com
pleting Its Una Into Pittsburg, President
Ramsey considers It quite remarkable to
be able to announos that tha entire con
struction work will ba finished on time.
This he says, la assured, however, a fact
over which is la personally elated.
Some remarkable architecture and bJ'IA- 1
Ing Is Involved In this pair "of bridges.
The one spanning tha Monongabela river
will contain tha longest single span in
the world, 821 feet. The Ohio river bridge
Is being built from the respective? sides of
the river, tha completion to bo at the mid
dle Junction of the two extensions.
"When we have ouf own lino running
continuously from Omaha to Pittsburg It
will then be Only a question of time until
it Is extended to the Atlantlo seaboard,"
ssys a Wabash man. "This marka
the beginning of the fight between the
Pennsylvania and the Goulds. The former
haa held what it considered a aort of prior
claim to that territory and. haa maintained
a rather defiant attitude, which finally be
came too irritating to tha Qould faction,
hence the aggressive action of the latter."
hoc u island Retrenchment.
In connection with Its general plan of
reorganization tha Rock Island la aald to
have launched a general retrenchment pol
icy. Evidences of economy are becoming
apparent in this section of tha country,
wnere tha read l reducing Its oneratlns
expenses By cutting down or abolishing sec.

taken off and passing trains have to do Ita

All these retrenchments are said to be
In line with, tha Orders sent out from head
quartera to reduce operating expenses
wherever possible In order to awell the

It la still tha general belief among local
railroad men that the Rock Island's prima

coast extension and tha pre reports stat
Inr that the nomnanv has filed new articles
of Incorporation, doubling ita capital stock,

CONNELL WAITSON THE COURT

A flurry ef Interest waa created In tha
city hall yesterday morning by the fact that
Mayor Moores, J. J. O'Connor and City At
torney Connell were closeted together for
some time in the office of the latter, and
tha auppositlon waa that O'Connor's right
to a position on the Board of Fire and Po
lice commissioners was under discussion.
This, however, tha parties to the conference
The meeting waa entirely accidental,"
aald Mr. Connell. "O'Connor dropped in
to sea about an appeal In a case against the
city In which he is Interested. In regard
to this Fire and Police board matter, I
would Ilka to modify tha statement I made
yesterday. I want to say that until I get
tha recorda from the supreme court, which
I expect In a day or so, I'll not bs prepared
to announce my position in regard to the
legal right of the present board' to hold
office, or to advise its members regarding
the course tbey should pursue In the event
the governor's appolnteea demand posses
slon of the offices. I am, however, certain
that points which are not only material,
but absolutely controlling, havs been
wholly Ignored or overlooked in the Savage
mandamus case, in connection with which
the court haa Just decided that It Is tha
duty of tha governer to appoint tha board."

Automobiles must stay off tha boule
vards and keep out . of the parks. The
Board of Park Commissioners has so de
creed. The new rule 'Went Into effect yester
day, and the police department has re
ceived Instructions to enforce It. The res
son Is that the Omaha horse la not edu
cated up to an acceptance of the automo
bile as a fixed institution and until auch
education has been acquired the chauf
feur must keep to thoroughfares dedi
cated to common traffic and to the "dirt"
"Take the boulevard between Hanscom
and Rlvsrvlew parks," aald J. H. Evana,
president of the board. "The driveway is
very narrow and fills and cute are frequent.
8uppose an automobile should come thun
dering along that stretch of read, at a
thirty-mile clip and should meet yon or
overtake you while you were driving a
spirited horse it would be almost certain
to result in an accident, as there Is barely
room enough to turn out even under the'
most favorable circumstances. The same
a true In a general way of tha driveways
In the parka. Tbey are all narrow and in
places precipitous and it Is impracticable
to permit them to be used In common by
both automoblllst and drlvera of horse
power vehicles. It may be that, in
course of time, when motor cara become
more common and horses in consequence
become accustomed to 'them, this .ule can
be abrogated. This board has no desire to
be' severe with the chauffeurs, I am aura,
but It feela that it must take this step for
the safety of the majority of the public.
"Another reason we had for excluding
automobiles from parks and boulevards was
that the average chauffeur is too ambi
tious to break speed records. He declines
to Conform to the speed ordinances of tha
olty, but goes tearing along over tha
streeta at -a terrific rate, seemingly forget
ful that pedestrians or people In more con
ventional vehicles have rights which they
ought to observe."
The rule was passed by a vote of three to
two, as follows: Aye Evans, Linlnger,

CONFER ON BIQ HORN BASIN

Talk Over Proposed
fienstor Dietrich left for Lincoln yesterday
afternoon after spending a couple of days
In Omaha. Yesterday morning ha and Colonel
W. F. Cody had a, conference regarding
affairs relative to the development of north
western Wyoming, where both of them ara
heavily Interested In land.
"The conference waa not pre-arranged."
aald the aenator. "Ws met and. being In
terested In the same part of the country
to a certain extent, we naturally talked
about those matters. There la consider
able discussion now about Increasing the
slxe of the Yellowstone park, hy taking In
pari or me western side of the Big Horn
basin. It has also been proposed to place
the ssme lend In the forest reserve. Many
of the persons who oppose placing tha
land in the park favor placing It under the
operation of the forest reserve law. If
It la placed in the Dark It will ba lmooa.
slble for cattlemen to run their stock upon.
me isno, wbilo if It be placed In the toreat
reserve the cattle can atlll be grased over
the land. T know the country well, having
hunted over It many' times. Mr. Codr
agreed with me In tha contention that there
are few If any natural characteristics
wnich would warrant placing the land
within the limits of the parks, but neither
of ns expressed any decided preference for
either plan. '
"I have been ao busy with the Irrigation
bill which was passed by tbe last con
gress that I have had no opportunity to
give the reservation extension the thought
which It requires. I was especially
pleased to have the aenatora and repre
sentatives come together upon the provl
aion for federal control and management
under state Jaws, as I first proposed that
plan at the Omaha conference held last
year. I expect at the next session of con
gress to carry out another Idea auggested
by me at that conference, and that Is the
employment of federal and state prisoners
upon the construction of Irrigation works.
I did not want to Incorporate It In tbe
present law, ss w wanted that relieved
from aa much of the detail aa possible,
but as under the terms of that law, the
aettler upon the reclaimed land la to re
fund to the government the cost of the
Irrigation system, it Is to the Interest of
the public that that coat be as low aa
possible. We can employ the federal pris
oners at leas expense than wa can . hire
labor, and tbe army of the country can
be well employed In guarding them. We
could thus do work on Indian reservations
where tha government can never be re
imbursed for its expenditure, and In the
atatea w can undertake Improvements far
larger in scope than it we have to employ
free labor." i
