"I bav been In this buslnee for over
twenty yer and never bav known pas
eecger traits ta run on as poor time as
they hat don thl year," said on of
Omaha' veteran' railroad men yesterday.
"It I a tact," he continued, "that roads
generally have failed to observe schedules

be made It 'would be found tbat mora train

In any other similar period ot Omaha's his

"Now, It will b Interesting to look Into
the cauM ot thl condition. Some will tell
-you, glibly, that It I due to the unprece
dented volume of traffic and Indirectly that
la Correct.' , But that doc not fully explain
matters, it la true that, taken aa a whole,
thla ha been the greateat year for pas
senger and freight bualnesa In the coun
try history and Omaha, the gateway to the
great west, ha opened her portal to un
usually large horde of travelera thla year,
but ! here observed that at time when th
paasengsr traftlo was th heaviest the train
might be making th beet time they had

explain It. I was her In one of the old

tickets were sold to California for 15 and
4h rush .of travel waa something tremen
dous, but the train all mad good flme.
"Th almpla causa la th general short
age ot rolling stock. All these roads, or
at leait , nearly, all of them, are abort on
engines and many on car, and they almply
bav been Unable to meat th condition
which, thl unheard ot era of prosperity haa
thrust Upon them. The railroad magnate
who ire given credit tor being th most
wlde-twat and progressiva fellow n th
country, were caught napping that' time.
They did hot foresee thl enormou Increase
In bullae coming In time to prepare ade
quate means of handling It aa It should
have been handled. Now, you will find that
carcety a road tn thl part of th Country
has failed to order new car and new en
gine, especially the latter. But thl doe
not necessarily promise Immediate, relief
from th congestion that haa set In! The
englaemaker throughout the country are
already covered up with order that cannot
possibly be filled by the last ot 1903, ao
that If thfi enormous Increase In volume of
bulns has come to itay, and there Is lit
tle doubt that It has, It will require mora
than year tor the railroad to catch up
with the situation."
