lloldrege and Wlllard Heiara from
General Manager lloldrege of the Bur
lington west of the Missouri liver, and Dan
iel Wlllard. second vice president of the
system, have returned from a week's visit
to the front. The battle is on around
North Platte with the Union Pacific, and
each road has a force of men striving to
complete the road first, which will open up
this fertile country. It has been given out
officially that the Burlington has simply
made a small start on the roads which will
be built by It and under its direction In the
Immediate future, and this activity of the
principal officials of the road aeems to bear
out that statement.
The Burlington now operates and controls
8.S7S m!les of road, fifty-eight miles more
than a year ago. The gross earnlnks of
the road for the year ending . June 30, per
mile were $7,436.tB against 7.C14 in 1P03-4.
The percentage of operating expenses, in
cluding taxes was 66.85 for the year against
88.34 the year before.
The number of revenue tons moved one

with 1WB-4. and the freight earnings de

The hearing in the injunction matter per
taining to the Union Pacific and Burlington
set for Thursday morning in the United
States circuit court has been continued
until November 8. Additional stipulations
were filed in both cases Wednesday evening.
The litigation arises out of the building of
a railway line from TIcrshey, Lincoln
county to Bridgeport and Northport, Neb.,
along the North riatte. Both companies
claim the right to certain territory and
rights-of-way in that section, and hence
each road has enjoined the other from
building the contemplated line.

Assistant Postmaster, Woodard said:

Scene of Another Marriage In Which

Judge Vlnsonhaler officiated late Wednes
day afternoon at one of that class of wed
dings for which Omaha aeems to "be a pop
ular rendezvous. Lor an W. Teagarten
came here from Georgetown, Colo., and
was met by Miss Mabel E. Davis of Evans'
Landing, Intl., and they proceeded to get
married. The bride and groom have known
each other for many years and, having
agreed to become man and wile, decided to
meet in Omaha. After the wedding the
couple left for Denver, where they will
make their home.
The manufacturers of the Remington
typewriter, not content with the state of
practical perfection to which that machine
lias already been brought, have added sev

model. Among' these are an Improved let

line spacer, making corrections eaay and
adjustment of the paper by hand no longer
necessary; an adjustable side guide for lm
mediate adjustment to any marginal inden
tation: a new polychrome lever, making
possible an Instant change in the color of
the letters. All of these Improvements have
been thoroughly tested and found to add
greatly to the speed, ease and evenness of
action and the perfection of the work.

the last issue of the Dally Democrat, pub

Robert Smith says:
"In his work In this department Mr.

President O'Neill iind Duckey Holmes
e.rrlved In Omahs Thursday and. accom
panied by W. A. Rourke. went to Linci!n
o look over the situation at that point
with reference to placing a Western lear.ue
ase ball team in the spring. O'Neill s:d:
"Mr. Holmes met with the same reception
at Lincoln that I did earlier In the year,
and we think the town all right for a base
ball team. They have had no good ball
for some time and aro about ripe to pt-
ronlxe the ganiP. We have a prospective
purchaser for the St. Joseph team, so thut
own may remain In the league next yenr
and might be all right with proper manage
"This talk of dropping one of the Colo
ado towns Is all rot, as we must have two
towns In the west on account of the jumps
and as long as there Is one Colorado town
n this league there will be two.
"The Sioux City papers have had the
Colorado towns out of the league twenty
times, and Carney, In an Interview in Bos
ton, Bald the stime thing, but that does not
make It so. The Colorado towns will re
main. 'It does not look feasible for either To-
peka or Wichita, and neither one of these
towns will be given a franchise. In all prob
ability. They art bound by an agreement
and the draft price is 12. 500 a club, which
would be pretty expensive for a small town
like either of these.
"We had thought of putting a team in
Kansas City for this league and Tebeau
was willing and had consented to the prop
osition, but the other owners balked and
the deal was off.
"Tes, I have been trying to get out of
the presidency of this league, as I want to
get back to California, the land of sun
shine and flowers, but they don't seem to
want to let me go."

to buy the St. Joseph franchise and put In a

Rheumatism does not come on in a
causes that produce it work silently in the system for years. This insidious
disease becomes intrenched in the blood, and some exposure to cold or damp
weather, or slight indiscretion brings on an attack. Poor digestion, stomach
troubles, weak Kidneys, torpid Liver, and a general sluggish condition of
the system are responsible for Rheumatism. Food souring in the stomach
poisons the blood, the failure of the Kidneys and Liver to act properly leaves
waste matter and impurities in the system, which, coming in contact with
the natural acids of the body, form uric acid. This is absorbed by the blood,
and as it penetrates to the muscles, nerves and bones produces the terrible
pains and aches and other disagreeable symptoms of Rheumatism. Life is
made a torture by its excruciating pains, nerves are shattered, the health un
dermined, and if the disease is not checked it breaks down the strongest con
stitution. It will not do to depend oo plasters, liniments, etc.; such treatment
is helpful in easing the pain and reducing the inflammation, but does not
reach the blood where the real trouble is located. S. S. S. cures Rheumatism
by purifying and invigorating the thin, acrid

ONE CAPTAIN PLAN TALKED
Change May Go Into F.ffecT When
Haae Leaves tbe Police
It Is not unlikely that when Police Cap
tain Haze quits the force, which. It Is
announced, will be some time between the
present and the first, of the year, his place
will remain unfilled by the Board of Fire
and Police Commissioners. . There is a
movement among the commissioners to re
trench to the limit In framing up next
year's expenditures, and It haa been sug
gested the department may be able to get
along very well with one police captain
and one captain of detectives. 'The argu
ment la made that when either had to be
absent from the station a sergeant could
be left in charge the samo as Is done at
Commissioner Broatch said he thought
quite favorably of the plan, remarking
that he always had contended for rigid
economy . and keeping the money spent
within the amount made available through
the taxes levied.
"Tho department must have a number
of new things next year," said he. "Tha
patrol wagon Is all gone to pieces, and
we must have a new one. Personally, I
am In favor of an automobile patrol wagon,
as I understand they have been used suc
cessfully In a number of cities.
"With regard to filling Captain Hazn's
place, nothing definite has been determined
by the board. In fact, the matter has not
been discussed or the sentiments of the
commissioners drawn out. I think we
could get along without two caplalns. It
has been done before and I believe It can
be done again without lessening the effi
ciency of the police."
Other members of the board were more
reticent. Ono declined to talk until Cap-
ain Haze's resignation had been filed.
