RAILWAY UNION RUMORED
Coahtisn of Grtat Waitim aid Kama
Citj Bonthsrn Reported.
STICKNEY SAID TO HAVE GOT OUTLET
1ll Among His Owa Men la
If Ha IwirM Harrlmatn'a
Asreeaneat to Some
Sort of Term.
An Interaatlns report crop out of ths
yeax-end gottsip In railroad circles, al
ways proliflc of timely stories, that a
coalition of Interests between the Chicago
Grtat Western and Kansas City South
ern has brn or will be efTocted. Sub
stance is lent to the report by the fact
that Great Western officials at Kansas
City and St. Joseph, la receiving their
batqh of annual passes for 1906, notice
among them passes over the Kansas City
Southern, as well as the Oreat Western.
On of these officials who was In Omaha
a day or two ago said:
"I never before had an annual over the
Kansas City Southern and do not know
what the receipt of one now means, unless
It Is proof of the rumor that Mr. Stlckney,
who controls the Oreat Western and Mr.
Harrlman, who controls the Southern.
have got together on some terms whereby ;
one road takes over the other or both are .
merged In a sort of joint management. 1
eouldn't tell which would be left In the
Stlckney, It has been said, has courted
an outlet to the gulf such as might be ob
tained through the Kansas City Southern,
and the balance of opinion is he has se
cured that road rather than that Har
rlman has got his. If Indeed any exchange
has been made.
Omaha officials of the Great Western
profess to be entirely Ignorant of any such
Railroad Traffic Laiweet.
Railroads report the largest volume of
business for the Christinas holidays In
their history. J. E. Buckingham, assistant
general passenger agent of the Burlington,
"The Burlington did the largest holiday
business In Its history, the business being
all Incidental to the general vacation and
Christmas time. On some of the roads the
crush was so great conductors had to take
matters In their own hands and throw open
the Pullmans to the general publlo to ac
commodate the crowds which would pile
Into the trains at some of the stations.
This season la hard on the paaeenger de
partments of the railroads, for not only Is
the passenger business large, but the ex
press business also is so large It delays
the trains, so it la almost Impossible to
make time with the passenger trains."
All Hopes Are Exceeded.
John Ferguson, assistant general pas
senger agent of the Northwestern arrived
In Omaha Tuesday to meet the newspaper
men on the Lost Angelea Limited, due at
11 p. m., and accompany the train to Chi
cago. Mr. Ferguson said.
"That train is making a start on the
California business far beyond our expec
tations for a new train. While the people
of Omaha are all aware of the advantages
of tli new train, with its shorter route to
southern California. It will take a little
time to exploit It through the east, but
when people learn of Its advantages the size
of the train will then surely have to be
"This town of yours Is a surprise to me.
I have never visited a town where I could
look around snd see so many new and mag
nificent buildings, especially in the whole
sale district. Reading- In the pupers had
given me some idea of the growth of
Omaha, but the actual seeing was for be
yond my expectations." ,
Fitter u Thousand on fpccial.
The Burlington estimates that over 15,000
farmers attended the lectures on the seed
corn special which mad a tour of the
state last week. After a lay-over for
Christmas the special started out on Its
second week's tour Tuesday, and JudKlog
from the Increased Interest, larger corwds
wilt be out than attended last week. Sec
retary Wilson has notified Prof. Lyons
that h will spend one day on the special
If It is poslble for him to do so. The gospel
of good seed and how to plant it Is one
of great Interest to the farmers who are
heainnlng to see that the professors at the
university are practical men as well as
theorists, and that the corn crop of Ne
braska ran be Increased If attention Is paid
to the doctrines which ar taught by thee
Word has been received from Denver
that the Colorado Midland has begun work
at Its shops at that place on three dining
ours which are to bo placed In service
early In IV
These cars will be the first of the kind
ever built west of Chicago, and will be
finished In mahogany, elegantly upholstered
and equal in every respect to any cars
put out by eastern shops. An Indication
of the large amount of equipment being
built for lines throughout the country is
known In the fact that eastern shops
could not guarantee tho delivery of these
cars In time for next season'a tourist
travel to Colorado, resulting in that lino
deciding to build them at their own shops.
The Colorado Midland in known in
Omaha aa Georgo Vallery's road, Mr. Val
lery, one of the best known railroad men
In th country, having left the Burlington
about a year ago to assume the mnntige
inent of the Midland.
Why Cars Are Scarce.
The Railroad Oasetto accounts for the
oar shortage which Is now crippling the
traffic on the railroads nf the country by
an Interesting table, which shows the num
ber of cars ordered lust year was consid
erably less, in fact, only one-half the num
ber built in any year since 1399. During the
last three months the car companies have
booked some record-breaking orders for
1307 delivery, among which sre orders from
two of the leading railroads which alone
are larger than the whole output fur 1904.
Th table shows the estimate made by the
Gasett for the last seven years:

It was a subject of comment with
our costunieru that during the great
rush of Christmas shoppers at our
Drug Store Prescriptions were con.w
pounded with out usual promptitude.
The reaaou for this Is found In the
fact that our prescription department
Is located la our basement quite re

sales department. Here a force of
skilled pharmacists devote their entire
time to the Compounding of Prescrip
tions, and thus are able to &ive a bet

problems of store keeping. Prescrip
tions are timed when wceived so that
we as well aa our patrons may know
just how much time has been con
sumed in the preparation of their
medicine. Every prescription la
checked by a second pharmacist, thus
