INFERIOR RAILS TURNED OUT

UNION'. PACIFIC IS MAKING TESTS
Situation Haa Reached Alarmlna
Staae When Thousands of Toss
of Dilapidated Ralls Are
"We are testing all these rails as they
break," said W. R. McKeen, superin
tendent of motive power and machinery
of the Union Pacific. "We have them plied
up at the shops as high as a house and
are testing them, 'photographically' and
chemically and by weights and otherwise,
but are not half through with our tests
and have made no report on the tests as
When asked If the press dispatch In The
Bee, thnt 15fl,0n0 tons of steel rails had
been ordered by the Union Pacific to be
made by the open-hearth process, was not
an Indication I hat he believed that process
was the best. Mr. McKeen replied that It
probably showed that Mr. Kruttschnltt
"The manufacturers know what is the
matter with the rails." said Mr. McKeen.
"and It Is up to them to correct the fault."
The general Impression seems to prevail
that the steel companies are trying to
turn out the steel too fast, with not
enough regard to quality. When Mr. Har
rlman read the report to the directors ot
the Union Pacific at New York last week
thAt the Union and Southern Pacific had
449 broken rails In the month of February,
and that nearly half of these were the new
ninety-pound rails, which had been In use
but six months, the publlo was surprised.
More Severe Test Jfow.
Four of the recent wrecks on the Santa
Fe have been ascribed to broken rnllB and
they were the new and heavy type. The
rails are put to a much more severe test
at present than In former years, for the
engines are larger and the loads are larger
and they are sent across the country faster
than ever. A person standing at the sta
tion and watching one of the new mogule
of the Union Pacific pass over the rolls
can see the rails bend under the weight.

Borne of the nonexiierts of the rnllroad

In the great and growing west," said A. M.

was In Omaha to arrange for the large
movement of settlers which Is anticipated
for the opening of the Huntley Irrigation

acres of land at nominal prices. This land
is all ready for the settlers, who have only
to plow and sow and turn on the water.

the time Russia was forced to sue for
"General Kurokl Is In this country as a
representative of the Japanese government
to the Jamestown exposition," said Mr.
Cleland. "He Impressed a person most fa
vorably, and. most of all he impresses you
as being a man. He wns accompanied by
two of his generals and about fourteen oth

by the unseasonable weather. They are

The fruit on the northern const seemed to

Mr. Cleland has come up from the ranks
within the Northern Paclflo. A few years
