C R. Fpens, the new appointed Rerienil
firiaht nsent of the. Burlington linen west,
who succeeds D. O. Ives, who has been ap
pointed general traffic manager of the
Wabash, arrivrd In Omaha Wednesday
morning from Chicago to enter upon the
duties r.f his new onice. For the loot two
years Mr. Spens lias been assistant to
Freisht Traffic Manager Crosby, in charge
of the freight traffic of the entire Burling
ton system. The position which Mr. Spens
has held has made him entirely familiar
with the greater part of the work which he
Is to take up. Iss than yean of age,
Mr. Spens la the youngest general freight
agent In the United States.
"When I left Chicago lHst evening," said
Mr. Spens, "Mr. Crosby in his Instruction
to me reaffirmed the statements which he
made in Omaha a week ago in connection
with the building of the proposed "ne rrom
the Ashland cut off to Omaha. The line
will be built all right, Just as Mr. Crosby
"I hope that the fact that I come as a
comparative stranger to Omaha will not
militate against me in any way, as I have
come with the Idea of making this my
home, although I only brought a small
grip with me this time. I am surely going
to strive to do the right thing by Omaha
and hope to impress this upon those with
whom I am to ronio In contact, for nothing
can be accomplished except by mutual co
operation. For the next two weeks I sup
pose I will have to stick pretty close to
this desk to lenrn the detail of the office,
and then I will have more time to get ac
quainted." Sew Orleans for Coffe..
New Orleans Is becoming the great Im
port city for coffee," said J. W. Weltzell,
freight agent of the Illinois Central,
Wednesday morning, "and the reduction in
rates forced upon ttie roads show they In
tend to keep -It as such. A bag of coffee
weighs about 130 pounds Bnd In 1S99 2T9,361
Iihks were Imported through New Orleans.
In this was Increased to 1,279.133 bags,
showing the enormous Increase of the busi
ness. This has been brought about largely
by the Importers at New Orleans, who have,
realized the chances offered In the coffee
business. New Orleans is so much nearer
as a port of entry for the entire middle
west country and the dealers there have
engaged ft man who travels through this
territory for the express purpose of finding
thn wants of the people in this section of
the country. This man was through Omaha
Tuesday and makes all of the Jobbing
towns on the Missouri river. He says the
people of this section demand the highest
giado of coffee that can be procured."
Vnlon Pnoine Folder.
The New York Commercial has this to
say of the handsome pamphlet which the
advertising department or the Union Pa
cific has prepared on the Portland exposi
tion: Of all the season's literature of the rail
roads of the country a booklet issued by
the lnhn I'actflc, Southern l'acific and the
Oregon Short Line on the Iewia and Clark
exposition now in Portland, Ore., must take
first rank. The cover is an artistic piece
or work. In subdued colors, showing lxwls
and Clark discussing their dream of the
then unknown northwest and exhibiting
their plans of the exploration. A brief per
sonal history of the two famous explorers,
something of the Indian woman who helped
them and an original map of the country
forms the first part of the pamphlet.
Railway Xotes and Personals.
I W. Wakeley general passenger agent
of the Burlington, returned from Denver
A bill has been Introduced into the
Georgia legislature making It a misde
meanor for any railroad to carry passen
gers on Sunday for less than the regular
rates or in other words to forbid cheap
excursions on Sunday.
A great many Omaha people are taking
advantage of the reduced rates to the north
offered by the Chicago Groat Western and
there la quite a colony of Omaha people
at Clear I.ake where the reports come of
some big catches of fish.

One box of canned strawberries caused
the present trouble of J. C. Shandy, If the
reports at police headquarters may be
A week ago the man was arrested on the
charge of larceny as bailee, the complaint
being sworn to by E. O. Hoyce of the
Nebraska Messenger Express, on behalf of
Miss little Layton. Now another charge,
that of forgery, has been filed against the
It Is alleged that on July 1, Bhandy was
given two boxes of canned strawberries to
haul for Miss Layton, one box to go to
Bcotts Bluffs, Neb.,, as baggage and the
other box by freight. The baggage was
received at destination allrlght but nothing
of the other box has been found. When
questioned as to the missing box Shandy

posed to have been signed by a former
employe of the local Burlington freight
depot, but in reality signed by Shandy.
Shandy will have a hearing In police
court Friday morning.
NO SICKNESS AND NO DEATH
Constable Simpson, Father of Mae
Children, All In Pink of
Constable Ed Simpson has made a record
that is enviable and which should dispel
the Idea that race suicide Is gaining ground
in Omaha. Twenty years ago Mr. Simpson
was married. He has nine hearty chil
dren, never had a death in the family and
never had occasion to call a physician ex
cept when the stork rang the doorbell at
"Plenty of Nebraska ozone, lots of sun
shine, a cheerful disposition, temperate
habits, pay your gas bills regularly and
you have solved the problem of a long and
healthy life," nays Constable Simpson.
ALL EXPERIENCE HE WANTS

that He Is Not Pining; for
Stella Jordan of the bad lands has been
fined 17 and costs in police court, where
she was charged with larceny.
The story about Miss Jordan is that one
August Holder gave the woman 3 to hold
for him. She held the money until she
had lockjaw in the hand and the allegation
Is that Holder tried in vain to transfer the
money from the woman's hand to his
August Holder, who is a stranger within
the city walls, says his experience on the
first day of August will hold him for
awhile, and he was not punning when he
made the statement. He looked serious.

could do seemed In vain. At last when all
hope seemed to be gone we began using
