that they are working In unison . against

Harrlman announce a cham;'! of policy
in the Union Pacific pome time ago. and
this is being carried out. The firt work I
none ny itarrinian after acquiring this
great artery of tho natioli was to improve
the main line so the traiiscontinenf al ton-
nage could be hauled at the least expense.
To do this he spent Jll.OO.0Oij building bet
ter roads In Wyoming, and ran his track
In a straight lino across Bait iAke at a
cost of KOnO.OOO to save forty-three miles.
He Is spending $3,500,000 rtsjht under the
eyea of the citizens of Omaha to save ten
I miles of an ox-low Into Sarpy county. He
j Is spending millions In doubu? tracking this
' main line, and as this work Is progressing
lie rjas decided to build feeders for his main
artery and to try- to develop the agricul
tural country along the line of the 1'nion
I his strife for the Vuslness of the west
has made many changes in tho railroad
maps of the country in the lust few yc-rs.
Hill controls to- the north und Harrlman
lontrqls through the central west., but
George Gould la not to be outdone and U
building a line .which .will have few grades
and which will give the Gould system Its
own rails from coast to coast, from Balti
more to Ban Francisco. The Western Pa
cific Is being built as fast as money and the
laborers hich can be secured cun build It.
A scarcity of labor Is holding work tack,
and It has been estimated that it would
lake 60.0MO additional men to meet the de
mands of the west for laborers for railroad
work. George Gould said wljile in Omaha
. the other day th&t he was building a road
. which woulube a surprise to many.

however, for. the grain which this groat
agricultural belt produce and Harrlman
was figuring on building a line of his own.
This would- have .been ready, for some of
the business which'' tho Panama . canal
would be euro to bring to the southern
towns. There Is nd dntibttbo southern
gateways will bo of greater Importance
with the completion of the canal, for roany
boats from across tho Pacific will un
doubtedly, be . unloaded at the southern
ports, and -these cities being nearer by
rail than tho eaM or the west ports to
the great middle west will furnish an Im
mense amount of traffic to the. porth and
Klnre Harrlman has gained control of, the
Illinois Central, which completes a north
and south line for hi in and connects the
eastern terminus of his Union Paclflo and
(Southern Pacific roads, he may abandon
the plan of building the line from Kansas
City south. Residents In the grain belt
had hoped this road would be built, for
It would provide a direct outlet for the
resources ot this state and Kansas.
From Onlaha to Kaasaa City.
Within two years the Union Pacific will
have a good line between Omaha and
Kansas city, a line which will pass
throifgh tho oupltals of both Kansas und
Nebraska In making the trip, and the line
la being built of he heaviest material mid
on a par .with tho renowned main line
between Omaha and Ogden. A new line
is betng built across country from Topeka
to Maryvllle. and the line from Marvvllle
to Lincoln Is being rebuilt and put above
tho reach of water. The greatest help to
Omaha Is the air line which will bo built
between Lincoln and Omaha. Engineers
of the Union Paclflo have made three sur

Railroad construction In the United
States, Canada and Mexico exceeds all
estimates this year and what the Increased
mlleagn. will be for 1907 no one seem to
want to hazard. That it will be enormous
as compared with previous ears no one
seems to doubt and that it will run to
tens of thousands of -miles In these three
countries stems certain. - This-, for steam
roads alone, and besides thousands of miles
of street-railways will be built. The de
mands on the steei mills, furnaces and
mines for the supplies of materials- can
be readily seen In advance to be of record
breaking proportions. It Is estimated that
the construction work of three or four
of the large systems wMl exceed in 1117
the entire construction work in tne t'nlted
States of any year of the last decade.
Harrlman is doing the most work In

Millions for Improvements.
Itenides the new construction the rail
roads are spending millions In improving
their property. Aa Instance of that Is seen
In Omaha, where the Union Paclflo la
spending 5,0uu,000 at , the present time.
A complete automatic; block system wlU
fcoou be In operation on the- Northwestern s
dc utile track line between Omaha and Chi
cago and during the next year the Union
1'aclflc will build over 4u0 mile of additional
track between Omaha and Wyoming. The
business demands it, for without the double
trtL''k th roads would soon be congested
with the Increase of business which every
monthly report of 'the roads show. The
Harrlman lima between Omaha and Ban

WASHINGTON, D. C, Nov. IT. Secre
tary Taft. who returned today , from his
Inspection trip .to western forts, ssjs he
round Fort D. A. Russell, Wyo., amply pro
vided with all the land necessary for the
accommodation of a full brigade and with
ample room for exercises and maneuvers.
There are fcOOO acres of land at the post
and another reservation of J2.0TO acres,
distant thirty miles, where maneuver were
held this falTi Cutting across the country
the ps-rjy struck the railroad 100 miles to
the north and came to Fort Robinson, Nob.
This- post has 10.000 acres with another
reservation of 12,000 acres, distant twelvo
miles. Sftcretary Taft concluded that It
will bo necessary to purchase the Inter
vening ground to mako this a brigade post.
Fort Sheridan, near Chicago, " was next
Inspected and Incidentally the secretary
looked into a complaint that the target j
range there was' an Injury to adjoining
private property. The secretary concluded
that Fort Sheridan could not properly bo
mode, a brigade post, owing to the limited
sixo of the reservation; the high price of
the adjoining land that would have to be
acquired; and other considerations. There
la no Intention, however, of abandoning
the post, which will be maintained on a
At Fort Leavenworth the secretary saw
2.X00 men Under arms. The reservation of
MOO acres Is too small for a brigade pout,
hut Secretary Taft believes It wlil be pos
sible td purchase additional ground at a
reasonable price, making the post largo
enough for a brigade, while the troops
could have fhclr maneuvers at Fort RUcj-,
not far distant.
Bis; Reserve at Port Hlley.
The secretary was particularly pleased
with Fort Riley With Its .X acres at the
postj and a fine plant already accommodat
ing a regiment of field artillery,. a regiment
of cavalry and a battalion of engineers, so
that the place Is already under brigade
basis, congress, having allotted money to
build headquarters lor an engineer depart
At Fort Sill, Okl., the secretary found
the largest army reservation, save one.
namely, Fort Aaslnabolne. Fort Sill has
6,000 acres at. the post and the troops have
the use of the 40,000 sores comprised In
the adjoining Wichita mountain forest re
serve. There are accommodations for only
a squadron at the post now, but it will be
enlarged In view of the .splendid location,
the good water and other advantages. At
this post are the 238 Oeronlme Apaches,
technically prisoners of war. At, present
a majority of older Indians are anxious
to return to their old homes In Arlsona
and New Mexloo, but the younger men de
sire to remain -where they are. Secretary
