TAPS NfW TERRITORY FOR OMAHA
Brln ThU City with It Growing
Coanrrrlil Interest Into Touch
with DcTFlopIn Conatry
of the Korthwest.
The Burlington's new train to the nortbj
WMt, which will give Omaha 4,0u0 mile
of additional daily train service, will be
Inaugurated Sunday. L. H.- Btebblns, chlet
clerk of the baggage department of the
Burlington, with headquarters at Chicago,
la In tho city to arrange for the baggage
. equipment and also for the mall service
which this new train will care for. In
speaking of the new train General Passen
ger Agent Wakeley said:
"Our additional train to Puget Sound
Is Intended to Increase Omaha's im
portance as a gateway from the
east and to doubly Join her Interests with
that rich northwest section, a aone Increas
ing In population and wealth faster than
any area of equal extent In the world.
"But few years ago this line ended
In the sand hills of Nebraska, then later
reached to the Black Hills, putting that
prosperous community In touch with
Omaha's markets, pushing on from Edge
mont, the permanent cattle ranges were
crossed, which meant additional business
for Omaha packing Industries. As the
line advanced toward the Northern Pa
cific territory, those who studied the rail
road map soon discovered that by com
pletion of this line into Billings, Omaha
had not only gained a stretch of new terri
tory 900, miles long this side of Billings,
but that her complete commercial organism
had been put In close touch with the older
country along the Northern Pacific
through to the Puget Sound.
Thousands Go West.
"Since the policy was inaugurated a few
years agothat of extraordinary low rates
to assist colonists to find homes In tho
northwest, thousands have located there,
and thousands more of producers and con
sumers will take up the march Into that
country this spring, but it's a big country.
The new lands to be reclaimed, opened
and Irrigated In the next few years will
make homes for as many more to satisfy
the legitimate land hunger now prevailing
among our people. Large ranges In north
west Nebraska are being divided Into farms
with quick sales. The North Platte valley
will soon add 200,000 acres of abundantly
Irrigated lands, with their high cjass pro
ducts and the wealth of the community
that goes with this to Omaha trade.
"The country around Sheridan, with Its
coal and Irrigation, is Increasing in popula
tion, while the ranges beyond mean a
permanent supply for the packing Indus
tries. Beyond Is the Big Horn country
which will furnish one of the surprises In
the history of territory development. With
government and private enterprise 200,000
acres of that land will be Irrigated In the
Immediate future. The soli Is rich, the
sun and climate favorable, and some day
that country will be a vast garden t
augar beets. The Burlington will have Its
line built to Worland, near the Wind River
reservation, which will be opened for set
tlement this summer. If 1,000,000 acres of ir
rigated land were thrown upon the market
tomorrow, all ready for the plow at $36 an
acre, It would be sold within a week and
all be producing within the year. This
ahowa the value to a trade center of a
community built up in an Irrigated region."
Omaha., tho Under Do.
The announcement by the Northwestern
and Illinois Central of a rate on coarse
grains from Minneapolis to the Oulf porta,
the same rate as Is made from Omaha to
the Oulf, haa stirred some members of the
Omaha Grain exchange to a realization of
the fact that it la not getting Its just de
serts on the grain question. The Illinois
Central has practically a through line from
Minneapolis to the Oulf by connection with
the Minneapolis & St. Louis railroad, al
though the present rate Is made via Dixon,
111., with the Northwestern.
The southern roads are permitted to In
vade the territory of the seaboard lines
without complaint from the lines, but when
the seaboard lines come to Omaha with a
low rate the southern lines will not stand
A. H. Merchant, secretary of the Grain
exchange, said: "It Is time Omaha grain
men and Jobbers were going after the rall
roada on the ratea which are made from
many points In Nebraska, which are In
favor of Kansas City as against Omaha.
The rate on corn from Grand Island to
Kansas City, a distance of 313 miles, hi 15
cents, while the rate to Omaha from Grand
Island, a distance of but 147 miles. Is but
1 cent lower. This is but one point, but It
Illustrates the advantage Kansas City has.
Many of the rates in southern Nebraska
which favor Kansas City and 8t Joseph
are brought about by the Grand Island
road, which does not come to Omaha. 1
understand this road is now owned by Mr.
Harrlman and will be operated by the
Union Pacific in the spring, and this may
bring about a readjustment of the rates to
the advantage of Omaha."
THE VALUE OF CHARCOAL.
Pow People Know How I'selnl It la In
Preserving Health and Scanty.
Nearly everybody knowa that charcoal la
the aafest and most efficient disinfectant
and purifier In nature, but few realise It
value taken Into the human system for the
same cleansing purpose.
' Charcoal is a remedy that the more you
take of It the better; It Is not a drug at all,
but simply absorbs the gases and Im

Intestines and carries them out of the
Charcoal sweetens the breath after smok

other odorous vegetables.
Charcoal effectually clears and Improves

ILLINOIS CENTRAL LOSES CASE
Railroad Called on to Pay Eleven
Thoneaad Dollar for Injnry
by Passenger Train.
Dr. CTiarle Rosewater has been awarded
a verdict in the federal court for IU.O00
damages against the Illinois Central rail
road for Injuries received by being run
down by a train on that road the evening
of January J, 1901. at the Thirteenth and
Pierce street crossing.
Dr. Rosewater brought suit for $20,000,
claiming he was permanently Injured by
the accident, which' he held was the re
sult of gross carelessness and negligence
on the part of the railway company. He
was returning from a visit to a patient
and had stopped at the crossing, but was
a moment later signalled by the flagman
to "come on." He drove carefully across
the tracks on a trot and looked in each
direction for any approaching train, but
could discern nothing through the fog,
smoke and steam, and was struck by the
Illinois Central passenger train that was
moving at a very rapid rate, r ile' was
thrown from his buggy and narrowly es
caped death. As it waa be was painfully
Injured about the head and ' back, waa
confined to hla bed for aeveral weeka and
haa not yet recovered from hla Injuries.
The caae was given to this jury -at 6:30
Friday evening, and the verdict waa ren
dered at noon Saturday.

fair held under the auspices of the State
Checker club. In the preliminaries Mr.
Johnson made a remarkable showing, out
of twenty-six games winning nineteen, los

aidered remarkable, particularly In view of
the fact that he had never played th
game up to about a year ago. Then th
