B. F. WlncheU, president of the Bock
Island railroad, passed through Omaha
Saturday morning; enroute from Kanaaa to
Chicago. Ma was in hie private car and
vu eooompanled by his stenographer, and
remained about ten minutes while tb train
was at Union station.
"1 don't know a thin about this boycott
affair" aald Mr. WlnchelL "except as I
hare noticed It In a oasual way. The mat
ter Is wholly In the hands ot the trafflo
officials of the road and I am sure they will

cause to complain. At least I hope so. I
Mated through a splendid rain In Kanaas
last night and the crops of that state are
looking Ana, Everything indicate the larg
est oroo in the history of the state.
Mr. Wlnchell was formerly a clerk tinder
John Utt when the latter represented the
Atchison Nebraska road at Lincoln, art
rward the Burlington Missouri. When
Wlnohell became president of the Rock
Island he made John Utt general agent of
the Rock Island In Omaha.

O. W. Held re ge, general manager of the
Burlington, has returned from an extended
trip over the western lines of the road and
reports the crops good all over tne system.
"The Burlington Is taking every precau
tlon to comply with the United States reg
tiioHnna In retard to car appllanoea,' said
Mr. Holdrege. "The requirements In re
gard to air brakes have all been met and
we try to meet all other requirements as
fas as possible. The suits filed or ordered
to be filed by Attorney Moody are not be
cause of any great violation of the laws or
because of any Intention on our part to try
to evade the law. It Is simply a question
of carrying out some of the provisions
cording to the opinion of some government
lnDector. It is a question of accidents
which happen between- repair stations.
"The law Is very strict in regard to air
brakes and also grip Irons on the side ot
the cara In many instances these are
knocked off and are reported by some in
spector before we have a chanoe to repair
Clerks Get Salary Raise.
A voluntary raise In the salaries of the
clerks In the employ of the Oregon Short
Line at several terminal points Is taken
by railroad men as a move on the part of
the magnates to permit the employes to
have a share in the enormous earnings of
the roads and to enjoy some of the fruits
of the. prosperity which Is sweeping ovet
the country, and especially In railroad clr
cles. The roads are making plenty of
money to build new 'lines and to pay enor
mous dividends, and yet the clerks and
offlce men have been working along at' the
same old salaries. Thla move on the Short
Une Is taken as an Indication that some
thing Is to be done for the betterment o
the conditions of other employes. Although
living expenses have been Increasing In the
last few years, the clerks have been work'
Ing along at the same old wages and no
hope has been held out to them to better
themselves, except In case of promotion.
which In most Instances Is slow. Many
of the telegraph and clerical forces have
been raised voluntarily by the Short Une
and an Increase has been granted In the
yardmaster'a offlce at Evanaton, Granger
and other points, and other clerks on the
Harriman tines are In tb hope that It Is
to become the popular thing on all the
