PASS SYSTEM AT CITY HALLi Lutheran league meeting
Evil that is 80 Dwply Entrenched u toEi
Hard to Uproot
ays Railroads Shoald Khat OsT It,
. far Constituents Will Sot
Cease DrMiaJl Amr
Other War.
"Tha psss evil no far as city councilman
and other city c.fllrrrs are concerned cannot
ba exargrrated." said one of th outgoing
rouncllmen. "It wvmi to me that during
mjr term when I was not talking municipal
business with people In their presence or
over the telephone I have been talcing ap
plications for railroad parses from con
stituents. It lias been the custom for city
nfllrcra to use their Influence with the ra.ll-
. ways to obtain these passes and the custom
lias been worked to death. Some of the
councllmen have asked railroad ofllcers to
hut off on the deal, so hard has the prac
tice been worked.
"During the last administration the
charge has been miule repeatedly that
least one councilman not only procured lots
of transportation for his friends and him
(elf, but actually got passes and sold them
to scalpers, netting a clear profit for him
self by every transaction of the kind.
Baaad to HrlaaT Resalts.
"Bay what you will, this pass business
means that the councllmen can't help but
treat the railroads with more or less
grarlousness and leniency every time they
' ant anything from the city. The prac
tice Is tnot confined to the council. It ex
tends to other departments aa well, and I
know of one In particular that is actually
stuffed with blank transportation that can
he used any old way the department sees
fit. I doubt If there Is n department, of
ficer or employe of the city who has not
received free transportation from the rail
roads. It does net take much discernment
or reasoning to figure out what It means,
for the railroads do not give away free
rides without expecting something in re
turn. "The talk about the anti-pass question
being Injected Into the new administration
as a leading Issue started aa a Joke, but It
has developed Into something more seri
ous. Several of the councllmen who will
take their seats Monday say they are go
ing to uproot the practice. They may suc
C4. but if they do they are going to
' have, "mighty hard sledding. The city hall
has been a mecca for the pass fiends for
o long that it will take resolution and
effort to educate the public to a new view,
(letting a pass for a constituent Is an
awfully nice way to make a firm friend
and booster out of him."
Tntal of Seven Ilnndred Miles of
Trark Will Ba l.ald
This Year.
Tn addition to the new work already
mapped out, the Union Pacific, during the
year 1906, will relay 337 mile of main line
between Council Bluffs and Green River
with ninety-pound steel rails. It will lay
In addition to this, on new lines and
branches, 344 miles, or a total of 701 miles.
The magnitude of this work Is best ex
plained by stating that If in a straight line
it would build a track from Chicago to a
point nearly fifty miles west of Grand
This is In addition to the double track
work which Is being done In Wyoming.
Th work on the Lane Cut Off Is progress-
a n . v- v niiu 1 11T7 1 1 11 1 at
am being cut away and placed In the heavy
fills, which the work requires.
A. la rga force of men is at work on the
line from North Platte to Northport and
this work is being pushed as fust as pos
sible. The Burlington la said to have aban
doned its work on the line between North
riatle and Bridgeport.
The contractors also are pushing the work
on the Una from .Central City to Stroma
burg, and as no heavy grades will be met,
this work should soon be finished. General
Manager Mohler drove over this new route
lust week and reported the work pro
gressing nicely.
Klithtlaar the Flames.
Talbot's "Fighting the Flames" is the
rather unique title given to the big show

Hw Boston Commissioner.
The appointment of James Taylor Weth

fund commissioner of Boston.
Twenty-two years ago Mr. Wetherald
adopted Boston as his permanent home
and entered the field of newspaper and
magaslne advertising. Having met with
remarkable succoaa he Is now sole owner
of the largest newspaper advertising agency
In New England, which bears his name.
He has developed the accounts of some
of the largest advertisers in the country
and his progressive methods,-rare business
ability and experience have contributed to
the success of a number of notable adver
tising campaigns. Beside the newspaper
and magaslne advertising business which
he owns, Mr. Wetherald Is president of
Chester, Kent & company, manufacturing
chemists, whose products are sold in both
this and foreign countries.
Wetherald undoubtedly has a wider per
