California, and as there are only limited
possibilities for Irrigation, crops are fre
quently entirely out of the question over
larjje areas. Now. I do not wish to dis
parage the country. It Is beautiful and
the climate is mist delightful and varied,
from the bracing air of the seaside to the
eternal summer of the foothills. Los
Angeles has, I believe, a bright future and
la rapidly becoming a great metropolis
In fact. Is that now but it Is the rich
man's country. The man with a substan

here, but the poor man will find wages low,
every line of business overcrowded and
often no employment at any price.

Joseph A. Connor ofOmaha. with the rest
of the frenxied financiers engaged in this
battle of dirt and dollars. In company
with Miss Catherine Olbllu of South
Omaha I dropped Into their offices the other
day and had the pleasure of meeting a
former Plattsmouth boy, Denle Hlatt, who
Is rapidly coming to the front In the the
atrical world.
Mr. Connor had just returned froth In
specting a tract of fifty acres adjoining
the city. The price was only tl,y0 per acre,
but, true to his commercial Instincts, Mr.
Connor was driving a hard bargain and
offered J1.000 per acre, or $00,000 for the
tract. Quite a neat sum for only fifty
acres of land. It appears that this tract
lies near 28,000 acres owned by the Cudahys.
A number 'Of years ago Mr. Cudahy took
the tract from the Hibernian bank of San
Francisco on a mortgage. Now it has in
creased In value until It U worth several
Mr. Connor expressed great satisfaction
at the good fortune of this Omaha gentle
man, who Is noted for his kindly nature
and generosity. This sentiment was
heartily applauded by all the Nebrnskans
there assembled.
Indeed,' Omaha and Omaha people have
a warm place In the hearts of all these
wanderers. Distance and a strange land

Being a sympathetic man the boss barber
hated to discharge the latest addition to his

"It's no use, John," he ssld, "you've got

"Why so?"1 asked John. Don't I give the
customers a clean shave? Don't I give "cm
a straight, even hair out?"
. ."You do' said the boss barber, "but you
do it with the wrong hand. That means the

left-handed barber. It makes them feel

Industry, Intelligence, Perseverance

)- Illinois Central Vice Presi
dent aa Prerequisites.
Second Vice President J. T. Harahan of
the Illinois Central railroad takes the posi
tion that the railroad business is not a
contracted field of human endeavor and
has many excellent opportunities to offer
to ambitious young men. Mr. Harahan is
generally given credit as having graduated
from hlB offices more young men who have
gone to the top of the railroad ladder than
any other railroad official In the country.
Ills Interest In young men always has been
keen and active.
"Success in a tn II road career, as In any
other line. Is. as an abstract proposition,
due "to the possession and application of
certain essential qualifications," says Mr.
Harahan. "Industry, Intelligence, perse
verence and a fair education, together with
the faculty of promptly grasping a situa-
4nuiseinent Park "Winch' P. E. Her Proposes to Open in Connection "With His Other Enterprises.
P. E. Her has added to hi . other pro
poaed enterprises a park that la to ' be
constructed near Sarpy, City, aoroaa the
line from South Omaha, where he aays he
will outrival the famous Luna park of
Coney Island. Associated with Mr. Her

taking. . Thirty a eras are to be enclosed
for the park, and various places and ap
pllaaoes for dlvertisement will be aet
up therein. William Hamilton, a well
known designer and builder of amusement
places, has been commissioned to work
out the details. It la now planned to have
har.glng gardens, chutes, a circus, a lagoon,
a tower aad similar attractions, together
with booth and theaters where exhibition
of various sorts may be given. Power for
the operation and lighting of Dream City
will be obtained from the Papplo, which
Is to be harnessed and put to work.
Dream City wlil be on the line of the
Inter-urban railway, and the car service
between the city and the park la promised
to be such as will ' serve the people per
fectly. The promoters propose ' to begin
work of construction early In the sprlDg.
(Ion, are prime requisites, and in these
days of specialization, even in the opera
tion of railroad properties, the Importance
of technical knowledge cannot be over
looked. This latter I deem especially de
sirable as the foundation for a railroad
career. " It is not. of course, given to every
young man entering the employ of a rail
road to possess these attributes, but having
them, If he is willing to begin at the bot
tom, learn thoroughly every detail of the
work of the department In which he Is
employed and expect promotion only by
reason of merit and ability, he Is bound to
win recognition. Too much stress cannot
be laid upon the Importance of gaining
a thorough knowledge of the basic prin
ciples underlying the work assigned a
beginner In railroad service. He should
learn not only what he has to do, but why
lie must do It and what relations his work
bear to other departments. Practical ex
perience oiily will cover this point.
' Mast . Have Patience.
"A young man who hopes to schieve a
high position may be disheartened for the
time at the prospect of serving years in
euhordln.'dft' positions before attaining some
thing worth while. He should benr in
mind that the successful railroad men of
today have followed this course and n.jny
of them did not receive as large a salary
as Is paid an apprentice today. To do this
Involves at the outset the. overcoming of
false pride. There is nothing which broad
ens the mind of a man of keen perception
as close association with his fellow men,
and rubbing shoulders with them day by
day never hurt anybody, even though they
may wenr greasy Jackets, "
"I have mentioned the value of a tech
nical education. Thousands of boys today
must earn a livelihood and many of thein
assist in the support of parents and others
when they should be in school. This class,
of course, rannot attend a c.llege to secure
a technical education. However, in every
town of considerable slie there are night
schools in which one msy educate himself
sufficiently to prepare for something higher.
After this a correspondence course In any
one of tho several techlncal schools will HI
a young man for a better position than he
might be able to fill with practical knowl
edge alone. These techlcal courses take
time, probably three to Ave years, but they
do not Interfere with the young man's
earning capacities, and combine the theo
retical with the practical. The environment
of a young man of proper spirit entering
railroad service Is calculated to develop the
qualities I have mentioned, whether he
work In the shops, on the tracks, in the
train service or office. Of all things avoid
getting In a rut. The man who cannot see
beyond the confines of his shop or office
will remain In that position. The broad
man will observe the Interworklngs of the
departments and he will become impressed
with the necessity for perfect organisation.
Railroads Are Big Machines.
"Railroads as now operated In this coun
try are big machines. It would not be
amies to consider each department as a
wheel and each employe in that depart
ment as a cog In that wheel. From the
apprentice or office boy to the president
each docs specific work. And when a rail
road man, regardless of his position, real
ises that as a cog of a great working mech
anism successful operation depends on how
he fulfills his duty. It behooves him to put
forth the best that Is In him. The general
scheme of railroad operation contemplates
the carrying out by subordinate employes
or departments of policies outlined by the
next superior. As a general proposition
everybody on a railroad Is answerable only
to his superior officer. So well arranged Js
this system that circumstances rarely fxlfl
to Justify a subordinate questioning a su
perior's orders. However, there is always
warrant for the use of Judgment. If an
order Is manifestly Incorrect an Inferior
would be right tn calling the matter to the
attention of his superior officer. Generally
speaking, however, strict compliance with
I orders is essentia! to the proper operation
I of a railroad. 'Obey orders' is a maxim
of railroading. While this may sound harsh
it will not upon analysis be found to be so.
The word 'Obey' is necessary when It Is
considered that Instructions sent out by
any officer usually affect the operation of
hundreds of miles of railroad, thousands
of shippers and hundreds of thousands of
travelers, while back of these command
depends the success of the rond and its
ability to meet obligations.
Bach System Is Necessary.
"By reason of this well oiled system the
charge Is often mad a that railroad men an;
too much parts of a machine. Now, when
one stops and thinks of the gigantic pro
portions of a big railroad the logic of offi
cers and employes being cogs in a wheel
must be apparent. If every man, officer
and employe, were left to his own discre
tion, giving and taking orders to suit hlH
convenience, trains would be .stalled, earn
ings decreased and a chaotic condition re
sult. It Is this very system of transmit
ting orders from superior to subordinate
thst makes a railroad the heat managed
proposition In the world. In this transmis
sion of orders a man's Individuality Is not
lost. In fact, there must he strong person
ality. There are emergencies where com
munication with a superior officer Is Impos
sible and a subordinate Is thrown on his
own resources. Then the possession or lack
of a quick-acting brain comes nut. And In
this connection I say. without fear of suc
cessful contradiction, that In no line of
work today does a man's progress depend
so much upon his capability In no line Is It
so much 'up to the man' and in none In
there so little paternalism as in the trans
portation world. That there is no absorp
tion of individuality is evidenced by th"
fact that few railroad men abandon their
work for other lines of business, and when
they do they usually return.
"Tact, decision, executive ability, integ
rity. Judgment of human nature, all these
are required to make a successful railroad
officer. He must surround his every official
move so he will be prepared to give an ex
planation for his every art. He must be a
logician, figure out everything, do nothing
haphasard, and above all things he must
train himself to act quickly, as a railroad,
notwithstanding its bigness, is so arranged
In the way of system that speed is usually
the essence of all moves.
"One more point I would emphsslxe, thst
is the importance of being absolutely Just
to all, be they high or low In rank. No
higher compliment may be given a manag
ing offlcur than the steadfast bellf of his
subordinates that he will not permit In
justice, to be done them."
