. Tabulated, Time, Character,

' Looked After.
All persons wishing employment on tha
Burllogton after January 1 will have to
make applications for their positions
through an employment bureau which that
road has organised. This Is known aa tha
SJjqreau of Employment and will be under
the general supervision of Vice President
Wlllard and under the Immediate super
vision of J. N. Redfern. present head of
the Burlington relief department, with Dr.
J. A. Denny as chief assistant and med
ical examiner.
It is maintained the new department
should greatly Increase the efficiency of
the service and aid the company in weed
ing out undesirable employes. All applica
tions for employment must In the future
crtme through the new bureau. A record
of the time spent and the nature of the
employment will be kept, as well as the
character of the service Tendered the company.-
i The management states that this action
is taken for a double reason. First, to
keep complete records of the character and
length of service of eacn employe, and,
jieeondly, to . assist the officers charged
with employing' new men, in securing good
timber. All applicants must pass satis
factory examinations as to physical, tech
nical and personal qualifications. A record
will be kept of all furloughs, character and
length of service, debit marks and tha
reason therefor and of all transfers. The
announcement states expressly that these
rules apply only to skilled labor.
Railroads "till Prosperous.
In spite of financial disturbances and the
Installation of 2-cent fares in many of the
western states and the reduction of freight
rates, the year 1907 will go down in history
a being one of prosperity for the rail
roads. Of all tha Immense mileage in the
United States, but .349 miles of road have
been placed In the hands of receivers dur
ing the year, which ia .the smallest for any
year since the troublous times of 1903.
Many -hope to see the year 1908 continue
the good reoord, although it will be a time
of test and trial. The expenditures for
additions and betterments have been so
strong during this year that the average
railroad Is In a position to meet with cur
tailments In all branches if such a thing
' Is necessary.
' The , Chattanooga Southern was the
largest road to go into the hands of a re
ceiver, It being ninety-one miles long and
running from Chattanooga to Oadsen, Ala.
Tha next largest waa the Apalatchlcola of
Florid, eighty-nine miles In length, for
which receivers were appointed in' Sep
'.ember.' .
' Not Steam Railroads. -'
', The, most Important receiverships of the
year, says the Railroad Oaaette. were not
at' at cam railroads, but of street railway
companies. On September 24 Adrian H.
Joltne and Douglas Robinson were ap
pointed by the federal court receivers of
the. JJew York City railway and on October
t the Metropolitan street railway waa also
put In- their hands as receivers. - The New
York. City railway Is the lessee of the
Metropolitan street railway and operates
the , surface lines In the boroughs of Man
hattan and the Bronx, New Tork City,
and alio controls considerable trolley mlle
ige north of the city limits. This recelver
illlp Involved a clash of Jurisdiction, for on
November, 29 ' three receivers for each of
heso , companies wertj appointed by the
ittprney generul of the state ofNaw York.
These state receivers were, however, on
December 12 restrained by the United
States court from taking possession.
"Almost without exception both the car
thil locomotive builders in the United
States report a heavy falling off in orders

ning now on orders placed last spring, with
no new work In prospect. One of the large
locomotive building' companies reported a
falling oft of 76 per cent in orders, aa com
pared with last year. The Canadian car
nd locomotive builders have not felt the
rffect of the dlaturbance in financial and
business conditions to any extent. All of

Bark Is Conclusion of Georare Drew
of . Omaha and . James
J. Hill.
George Drew, veteran car driver and
motorman on the' Omaha & Council Bluffs
Street railway and now running on the
West Lesvenworth line, declarea that the
people of the present day are "Boftles"
compared with, their ancestors of fifty
years ago. ' He coincides with James J
Hill, the railroad magnate, In declaring
that the present is a luxurious and sybar
itic generation. Mr. Drew draws his con
clusions from the business In which he
has been engaged and from the ' stand
point of which he has observed and
studied people for thirty-nine years.
"When I was a driver on the horse cur
line ln Omaha thirty-odd years ago people
never thought of having- stoves in the
cara," lie says. "The only thing In those
little cars to give heat was the hay
which we spread on the floor about a
foot thick. People got On the car In the
coldest days and sat in that atmosphere
with their breath freexing In Icicles to
their whiskers and never thought of com
plaining or grumbling.
"How Is It nowadays?" he continued,
warming to his subject. "Here this morn;
Ing a' pasty-faced young fellow got on the
ear. It was nice and comfortable In there,
but Just because It wasn't about 90 de
greea In the shade like It Is In the hot
house where he is preserved he grumbled.
I'd like to have hold of that young fellow
In the early days. I'd have made a man
of him, I'd have made him enjoy sitting
In a snowdrift with a piece of mosquito
netting f or a blanket.
"The winters In the horse car days were
twice as cold as they are now. Why, I
reckon everybody would die If the winters
got so cold now. They couldn't stand 'em.
"Yes, it's true the motormen are pro
tected now and that they weren't protected
at all In the early days. I've stood out in
front driving my horses through many a
ragging bllazard when the thermometer
was way below xero. I didn't have any
protection at all. Didn't mind It then, but
don't reckon I could do It now. I've been
coddled with , the rest of this generation
till all the toughness Is taken out of me."

Ten Thousand Dollars Switched from
General to Road Account.
Tralnor and Rraslng Assert Vre lias

of Money at Ills Coat
The county board Saturday hy a vote of
3 to 2. passed the resolution Introduced by
Chairman I're of the road committee to
transfer $10,000 from the county general
fund to the road fund, which hns been
practically used up by the work on roads
during the last year. Tralnor and Brunlng
both opposed the transfer, declaring that
Chsirman Vre had been extravagant In
hla expenditure of money on the ronds and
that It Is doubtful If there would be a
surplus In the general fund at the end of
the fiscal year. '
t're defended his position on the grounds
that 17.800 worth of work- had been ex
pended from the general road fund on the
repair' of permanent roads and that some
more work would be necessary during tho
spring months. Ho declared there" will be
a surplus In the general fund and pointed
to an opinion from Deputy County Attor
ney 'Magney that the transfer would be
legal If It is to the Interests' of the county
that It be done. Solomon and Kennard
sided wlth.lTre and voted for the resolu
tlon. ,
Ure's report on roads shows that about
$05,000 has come into the road fund during
the year and approximately, that amount
expended from it.
Mrs. McGrata Discharged.
The board also passed 'unanimously the
resolution by I're discharging Mrs. Mo
Orath as assistant to the county store
keeper and appointing Dr. Frederick Ren-
ner to the place at a salary of $50 a month.
This was th resolution offered v a few
days ago by Vre. At that time it did not
receive a second and was laid over until
this meeting.
Bids for furnishing the county with
meat end groceries were opened and re
ferred to the committee of the 'whole and
the county auditor for tabulation. The bids
received Saturday on meat were the "sacond
offering. Only one valid bid was received
a week ago and the board rejected thla
and readvertised, resulting In a substantial
cut in the price. Courtney St Co. was the
lowest bidder, quoting a price of 64 cents
a. pound for cow hind quarters and 4i
centa for front quarters. ' .
The board let the contract for the re-floorlns-
of the larre room tineil lolntlv tw

M. F. Martin, owner of the Ninth street
Arcade resort, was lined $1W and costs In
police court by, Judge Crawford Saturday
morning on the rhargo of renting and leaa
Ing a house at 808 Dodge street for im
moral purposes. Officer T. F. Boyle was
the only witness who appeared for the
state. He testified that he had been on
duty as a patrolman In the vicinity of the
Arcade and hsd.seen Martin renting prop
erty there to Immoral women and had seen
him making repairs. The defense offered
no testimony and Judgment was rendered
on the testimony of Officer Doyle.
The case against John Harris, who ' was
Martin's collector of rents in the Arcade,
was dismissed, as City Prosecutor Daniel
was convinced he had no other Interest In
the property and simply collected the rents.
Martin paid "his fine before leaving the
police station. He refused to say what his
Intentions were concerning the use 'to which
the Arcade shall be put In the future.
The complaint against him on which he
was fined Is only one of many that could
be filed for similar offenses, said the Judge.
All of the houses In and around the Arcade
owned hy Martin are closed and unoccu
pied now. City Prosecutor Daniel says no
more complaints will be filed against Martin
as long as the houses remain closed, but
If he reopens them or rents them for Im
moral purposes Mr. Daniel Intimates ho
may haveto pay a fine for every house
so rented. "

tired Dollars by What la Termed
Itathrr Loose Piece of
In response to a request from Commis
sioner Tralnor, Jamea Ruan and John S.
Helgren, who have been employed by the
County board to check over the county
judge's, district cler;. . ind sheriff's affices,
have compiled a report of the work ac
complished. Incidentally they have com
piled other figures relating to the offices
they have examined.
One of these incidental reports shows the
earnings of the district clerk's office during
the first term of Frank A. Broadwell.
During the four years from U00 to 1SW3 In
clusive the office earned In regular clerk's
fees 1113.521.07. During the same time tha
salaries and expenses were $71,199.71, leav
ing a balance of $i:.0.'1.36. During the same
time Mr. Broadwell's fees as clerk of the
Insanity commission amounted te $4.641. 35
making a total balance of $46,562.71 of the
earnings 'of tbe office over the expenses.
In addition to paying his salaries and
expenses he turned over to the county
treasurer in May, 1905, $1,000 In surplus
earnings. At the end of the term he had
on hand about $3,000 making the total
amount collected of the $113,000 earned,
approximately $78,000.
Loose Bookkeeping.
The investigation discloses what the ac
countants declare Is a piece of very loose
bookkeeping methods whereby District
Clerk Broadwell was allowed $2,101.51 in
fees claimed when In fact he was entitled
to only $1,447.48. While it is not charged
there waa any dishonesty in making the
claim the result Is that the amount of the
fees apparently earned by the office is too
la rue by the difference between these two
sums. The claim was allowed by the old
democratic board In 1904 on voucher No.
STtdi. The amounts wrongfully included
were these: Sheriff's fees, which should
be credited to tho sheriff's office. $54.86;
Jury trial fees, which belong to the county,
$323; witness fees, which gd to the wit
nesses, J136.07; prepaid costs, $140.11.
The report of the work done by the two
accountants covers the number of pages
examined lit an investigation of the county
Judge's office from 0M to 1906 and of the
district clerk's office from 1900 to 1907.' In
the county Judge's office 20.900 pages were
examined and in the district clerk's office
(2,800 pages, including about 61,200 items.
In addition considerable work was done in
the later dockets in ' the county judge's
office and in going over the fve reports,
board bills and other accounts of Sheriff
McDonald and in going over a large num
ber of.clulm recently filed.

WASHINGTON, Dec. 28.-Hcroes are
thickening In Washington, D. C. Another
poison squad is getting ready for business.
This new butch of brave souls and In
trepid stomachs will form the soft drinks
brigade of the service and Dr. Wiley, of
course, will be in command.
Poison squad No. 1 Is now about six
years old. Casualties have been many,
but no lives have been lost. Desertions
have occurred, but most of the changes
have come through .the honorable dis
charge of members.
The squad is maintained at ita original
strength of twelve men. Just why the
number was put at twelve Dr. Wiley Is
unable to state.
The polsonees are young men who work
in Dr. Wiley's own department, the bureau
of chemistry of the Department of Agri
culture. Most of them are. In addition,
students at George Washington university,
which provides night lectures especially
to accommodate students who are sup
porting themselves by working for the
Of course there is none but volunteers
In the squad. There Is never any lack of
these. Aa they get all their meals for
nothing they are willing to have a few
acids, a little formaldehyde, a touch of'
copperas or a few shades of aniline dye
thrown in especially as they would get
some of the same things at a boarding
house and have to pay for It In ' the
Probably the thing they relish the
least Is the absolute knowledge that they
are eating adulterated food. There is no
guesswork about it, no chance to. hope that
It is pure. For the bureau does Its own
adulterating and Is uncompromisingly thor
ough about It.
A new recruit to the squad is not at
once put on an adulterated diet. The first
thing done Is to establish the equilibrium
of his system, to discover whst Is his
normal condition and what diet best main
tains that condition.
That being established, his daily ration
of poison is Introduced and its effect ob
served. It Isn't apparent In a day. Some
times a week or more of the poison regime
has little effect.
But sooner or later It does tell. Dif
ferent adulterants or -preservatives do
not have the same effect.
Formaldehyde causes a lowering of the
temperature and sometimes a nllxht rash.
Other - things cause headache. Indiges
tion, pain in the epigastrium, which.
being interpreted, means the pit of the
stomach. Thla pain Is, perhaps. the
most common effect of the doctored diet
upon its willing victims.
The new squad Is already organized and
its members are being supplied with good
food and drink to find out what thetr
equilibrium is. When that has been de
termined the fizz of the faucet will be
heard in the land.
The bureau has a list of over 100 soft
drinks In which cocaine snd other drug
are used. These are sold freely over
thousands of soda fountain counters. The
bureau, moreover, has records of indi
viduals who have taken no less than
thirty glasses a day of these drug drinks.
Dr. Wiley proposes to find out Just whit
are the consequences to these same internal
regions of having these diluted drugs
dumped fizzing Into them. Ho Is even
thinking of admitting a few women to
the ranks of the soft drinks brigade.
American women absorb perennial gey
sers of the stuff. It wouldn't be a bad
thing to know just what It Is doing to
IJiem. So here'4 to the Soft Drink
brigade! Drink her down!
They will do a-plenty of tha't them
selves when they get started. Of course
their diet will be straight; no polaon

Mayor Dahlman announced Saturdny
morning he would veto two of the or

session. One of the measures to meet with
his disapproval is that introduced by
Bridges placing the appointment of .the

of the mayor and city council, and tli
other Is McGovern's ordinance discon
tinuing: the office of market master.
"1 think the gas- commissioner should he

the mayor. "Tho other department heads
aro allowed this privilege and I don't sea
any reason for singling out the gum com
missioner aa an exception to the rule."
"I am against the abolition of the mar

such an officer. While that department Is
not self-supporting, I think it Is a neces

altogether, I would favor reducitig tho
salary from $100 to $76." '
