erful road to go to one whose construction
work ha not progressed much beyond the
hundred mil mark, -ha aroused consider
able comment, especially In view of the
fact that Mr. Dickinson' reputation a a
railroad man rank with the best. It is
agreed that it took some very substantial
lnducementa to get Dlckinaon to identify
himself with the projected road. It being
admitted .that the association of such a
man with any such road would be of vast
benefit to the latter. It Is understood in
this connection that Mr. Dickinson get In
on the construction contract, without which
it U believed he would not have accepted
the proposition. The Impression also pre
vail that some of the powerful money fac
tor ot the railroad world are back ot the
Stilwell project, which give it an element
of substantiality. What Mr. Dickinson'

Edward Dlckinaon was born at Cumber

career aa a messenger boy in the service of
the Cleveland k. Toledo railway at the age
of 13. After two years' service with that
road and six year with the Atlantic
Great Western a operator, train dispatcher
and baggageman, he received an otter from
the I'nlon Pacific at Omaha, and 1871 found
him holding the position ot train dispatcher
cn the latter road. At the end ot hi second
year of service with the I'nlon Pacifio he
was appointed chief train dispatcher ot th
Wyoming division of the I'nlon Pacific with
headquarter at Laramie. Ia 1877 he be
came superintendent ot the Laramie di
vision. In 1883 he was made general su
perintendent of the Wyoming division and
in 1885 he was appointed to the assistant
general superlntendency ot the entire sys
tem. Two years later he became general
superintendent. Here ia where Mr. Dickin
son made a great reputation for himself and
commanded attention all over the west as a
In 1883 Mr. Dickinson was made general
manager of the Missouri division, compris
ing the lines in Kansas and Nebraska. July
1, 180, he waa retired and before the news
became generally known he wa tendered
the position of general superintendent of
the Trans-Ohio, Baltimore & Ohio, lines
with headquarter at Chicago. Within a few
months he returned to the Union Pacific
and accepted the position of general man

According to local Weather Observer
Welsh we have had the best ot our Indian
summer and the mercury ha et in on a
downward course, which will carry us into
winter. For the last tew day the tempera
ture ha been steadily dropping like the
pulse of a dying person and It Is predicted
that summer can laat only a short time
Although the weather of this October has
seemed remarkable, a glance at the past
records shows that in reality it baa not
been up to the Nebraska standard. Taking
as an average the mean temperature of each
day for twenty-five years, the first seven
teen day of thla month show a deficiency.
The seven days between the 17th and 24th
being a very wide departure in the way of
excess, has brought up the average for the
month to about normal.
For those who have taken occasion to re
mit k that thla is remarkable weather tor
thla time of the year It is pointed out that
a year ago yesterdsy the thermometer stood
at (0 degrees, and a year ago today at 79
degrees. The local record for an October
day was made on the lzth ot that month in
18H9. when the mercury climbed to tZ.
However, it is now past the average time
for starting the winter fires in the furnaces

TRAINMEN WANT MORE PAY
Press Reports Confirm Story that Demand
on Companies is to Be Made.
STRIKE IS AMONG THE POSSIBILITIES
Railroad Managers ia Omaha Dear
that TnUsmea Have Submitted
Amy Denaadt, hat Actio is
The press reports from California that
the Southern Pacific trainmen will make a
demand for an Increaae In pay and from
New York that the Union Pacific dlrectora
had held a secret meeting to discuss the
"demands of the trainmen who have threat
ened to strike," naturally have revived in
terest here in the reiterated statement
that a concerted demand for higher wage
and revised schedules would be made on all
, the trunk line of the country thla fall.
Although this story, which was originally
printed In The Bee and published in various
other papers, has been officially confirmed
by E. E. Clark of Cedar Rapids, Ia., chief
of the Brotherhood of Railway Conductors
and one of the men selected by President
Roosevelt to arbitrate the anthracite coal
mine strike, no definite information as to
the plana and details of the movement can
be obtained from any ot the Omaha rail
roads. This report comes from Oakland, Cal.:
According to the Tribune, a demand will
he made upon the Southern Pacific within
the next thirty days for Increaned watn-K,
which wlil affect more than SO.Ouu employe.
The union ofliLlaU are loath to speak of
their plan and purposes, but admit that a
concerted demand will be muds on the
Southern Pacific; and twenty-two other
roHda west tif Chicago.
The demand l baad:
Kirst On the increaiied rout of living.
Second The increased profits of the torn
phtliea. Third On the fact that the heavier equip
ment in use compels mora work.
This from New York, both reports coming
over Associated Press wires Thursday night:
The directors of the I'nlon Pacific met
h re today and dlscimund the demands of
lha trainmen who have threatened to strike.
No decision waa made public.
torr leaaraurd by Clark.
Briefly stated the ktory which E. E. Clark
confirmed was to the effect that the train
met on practically all the trunk lines ot
the United States had agreed to present a
coucerted demand for higher wage and ie-
vised schedule based on the three prin
ciples mentioned in the above report from
Oakland. The agreement held that every
trainmen' lodge should stand out for the
provisions of this demand until It wss
granted by every road; that if all but one
road granted the demand operations would
cease throughout the country until the man
agement of that one road yielded. No strike
was contemplated, but the plans provided
that as a last recourse a strike would be
The reports of the action or plan on
the Southern Pacific seem to harmonize
exactly with the original plans and It ia
believed that the demand will- be made on
other roads now directly. The report that
the Union Pacific Board of Director ha
taken up the matter ha given rise to two
view. One is that the trainmen have
quietly presented their demand to the
general manager or president and that the
case somehow ha been carried to the
directorate. The other theory la that the
report haa the shopmen' atrike on the
Union Pacific confused with the plan ot
the trainmen and that it is the shopmen'
strike which the director have under con
sideration. President Burt' office waa conaulted re
gard lug the New York report yesterday
and this statement waa made:
