greeted Mr. Frederick SrhofT and Mrs.

Friday afternoon, indicated decidedly that
they have not. There has been no branch
organization of the society In Nebraska
and as Mra. Bchoff and Mrs. Orlce were
passing through the city Friday they asked
that a meeting be arranged at which they
might present the aim and work of the
organization. While practically all of the
women'a organization of the city were
Invited and urged to attend, only 10 women
were present. Rev. H. C. Herring opened
tha meeting with prayer and Mra. Mary

Mra. Bchoff was the first speaker and
he told of the condition that necessitated

their varlou cluba. At the conclusion
Mr. Rheta Chllde tsnrr of New

The meeting adjourned without any or
ganization, an Informal tea following In the
club room adjoining. Unwilling to de
part without effecting an organization, Mra
Bchoff called the meeting to order again
and asked that a temporary chairman and
secretary might be selected. Thl the
women reluctantly did, Mr. George Payne
being elected to the first office and Mrs.
Edward Johnson to the other. At this Junc

any further attempt at organization at that

OMAHA, Sept. K To the Editor of Th

Interview of Mr. Gonden, who traveled In

last year. Almost everyone In Omaha
know who Mr. Gonden represent. I

Mr. A. B. Hunt Dear Blr: I notice In thl
morning's Bee the report of a talk by H.
J. Gonden In regard to th telephone proposition.
While you undoubtedly know that all Mr.
Gonden says I not true, yet It might be
well enough for you to know that the Bul
letin of the League of American Munici
palities, which Is published In Dt Moines,
Is a subsidized Bell organ, and thousand
of cople of this paper are purchased by
the Bell Telephone company every Issue;
In fact, I rather fancy that the Bell com
pany's patronage Is what keeps the paper
alive. Our friends In De Moines are fully
conversant of the fact, and the Independ
ent telephone press knows exactly where
any article on the telephone proposition
which appear In the Bulletin come from.
This might be of some use to you In com

REVOLT AGAINST PULLMAN
Groat Batlroads Bwaklsz Away
from ' the Bleeping; Car
Practical results obtained by at least one
great railroad system of the United States
are now conclusively deaionstrating that
the objectionable private car ystem even
as applied to sleeping and parlor cars Is
not always as necessary aa Interested per
sons ask the public to believe, and so, If an
evil. 1 an avoidable one.
With the assembling of congress this
question of ownership of car by other
than the operating railroad, together with
the abuses and discrimination which are
worked through and under cover of th
private car system, 1 certain one again
live issue. Private car are of
from the ordinary coal car.
rlth th railroad-owned cars, ex
ited lettering, through the re
frigerator type and on up to the highest
peclallzed form, the Pullman sleeping car.
And here, at it best, and with It mo
nopoly of one of th moat Important
tranche uf transportation sen-ice almost
complete, It Is being successfully proved
that th private car system can be dis
pensed with to the advantage both of th
railroad and the traveling public generally.
The Chi ago, Milwaukee A Bt. Paul rail
way is unique among the many railroads
wading out of Chicago, is that It own
and operate It own Bleeping and parlor
cars. For fifteen years thl company, with
a railroad syster.i now comprising 7.13

manager of the road. Unable to stretch
out hi C feet I inches in any Pullman car
berth, he determined that his company
should provide sleeping car comfortable
for the man of any dimension.
The Chicago, Milwaukee and Bt. Paul
railway being ao located aa to have pretty
regular passenger traffic throughout the
year, finds Itself better off In having Its
own equipment. It now has eighty-three
sleeping cars, twenty-one parlor cars and
twenty-nine cafe and composite observa
tion car. Concerning the Independent
position of th company a regard sleep
ing cars, II. R. Williams, general manager.
in a letter Just received, says:
"After providing for salaries, mainte
nance. Interest and other usual charges, our
leeplng car business shows a small profit.
Our average sleeping car mileage per day
1 2S.2U4 mile. Thl company ha operated
It own sleeping car equipment since 1890.
Experleno ha not developed any serlou
objection to th syatem, and th fact that
we continue to operate our own cars is evi
dence of our satisfaction with th plan."
Thus, instead of paying money to the
Pullman company (or th use of sleeping
cars, the Chicago, Milwaukee & Bt. Paul
railway 1 getting aom Income from this
branch of the transportation business.
With It virtual monopoly, the Pullman
company Is able to drive hard bargain with

to charge them 1 cents per car mile, aay,

Mora recently an average for car earnings

agreeing to pay a certain lura (virtually a

is only slnt th last contract wa mad
and because the profits of sleeping car
operation on the heavily patronised Penn
sylvania lines are exceptionally large. Bo
far a 1 known, no other railroad enjoy
so favorable contract.
In all rase the railroad using Pullman
cars haul them free of charge and in cas
of wreck make good the loss. The Pull
man company builds and maintains th
car and pay it conductor and porters.
In return It gets all the receipts and. be
sides, a virtual subsidy, more or less
large, from th railroad, with the exception
On a run from Now Tork to Chicago It is
calculated that car receipts would average
about (75. Assuming round trip is made
every four days, this yields an income
of IC.S2S per annum on a car costing, aay.
C0.(X4 against this Income must be
charged maintenance and deterioration.
J. J. Hill, president of the Great North
ern rallwsy, which also operates Its own
sleeping cars, holds the view that a rail
road should be complete In ltelf. Before
the senate committee last spring talking
on isle regulation, Mr. Hill aald:
"I have made one rule that If anybody

MrKeen and Mr. Mohler as to what is
wanted for the branch line service.
Mr. Hubbell. a locomotive expert of Chi
"I cannot find words to express my ad
miration for this car. Six years ago when
I ii the first motor ear which wa con
structed I was struck with the idea and
said at that Urn that within the next
twenty-five year all suburban and treet
cars would b propelled by their own power.
I helped to Install the Council B'.ufTs-Ornaha
line and am conversant with all sorts of
cars, but McKeen has th right Idea. It is
all right and a success.
F. A. Nash, president of the local electric
light company and western agent of the
Milwaukee road, was also enthusiastic over
the car and wanted to buy it from McKeen.
"McKen will solve th problem of local
traffic and has a car her which is fast ap
proaching the proper thing. When h gets
th larger one built he will start the rail
way world to talking about him more than
it is now."
The trip to Valley was enjoyed by all.
The car 1 o constructed that the ventila
tion is perfect and no odor from the engine
whatever gets to the passengers. No record
was made for the entire distance as th
road 1 quite congested at thl season of
the year and several stops were made for
order, but there were stretches on tha
run when Mr. McKeen let out a few kink
and the register as well as several stop
watches showed that the car was spinning
along at the rate of sixty-three mite an
hour. No trouble wa experienced in
climbing the hill from the Omaha station
to th summit, which ia th steepest stretch
of road on the Union Pacific until the
Sherman hill I reached.
Mr. Mohler wa so pleased with the suc
cess of the car that he has instructed
Mr. McKeen to proceed with the construc
tion of two new car with engines of 2u0
horse power, the engine on motor No. 1
being half that. The new car will be con
structed on a different plan from the prea
ent motor. A trailer will be used to haul
th passengers and the motor car con
structed to carry the engine, th light
plant, a baggag room and a mall section.
n ork on the will be begun as soon
material can be secured.
Everyone was of the opinion that th
motor car wa destined to run the locomo
tive out of business on local traffic, because
of the lesser cost of operation and th
fewer men required to handle th train.
One of th most notable features of th
operation of th car was th total absence
of Jar in both starting and stopping.
Trolley car as well as steam car come
up with a sudden Jerk and there Is also a
Jolt at the start, but the motor car was
both Btarted ani. stopped by Mr. McKeen
without the allghest Jar. Mr. McKeen waa
at tb throttle during the ehtlr trip.
These cars are built under General Man
ager Mohler's Instructions, whose confidence
and practical suggestions are said to have
been largely responsible tor the building
and ultimate success of the cars.
