Appeal from "Railway Business As
sociation" Doesn't Stampede.
) Readers of Letter Sent Oat
tervret It as Means eft Gettlaa
j Baslaess for Big Sap-
pi? Henaes.
In face of the many announcements by
railroad companies that railroad rates must
be advanced and the growing tendency of
transportation companies to meet every re
quest for an equalisation of rates by an
advance, business organisations of Omaha
are receiving many letters from business
organisations In the east begging the
Omaha organisations to help "conserve the
Interests of the railways."
One of these letters was received by or
ganisations In Omaha Tuesday when the
Omaha business men had scarcely recov
ered from the coup which the railroads
worked on the Nebraska Railway commis
sion In order to get rates Increased for
switching cars between Omaha and Ralston
from about $2.60 per car to a minimum of
$10 per car.
The Nebraska Railway commission had
Just realized how the railroads had thrown
few hands full of mustard powder In
their eyes and announced that they would
reconsider the Ralston rate hearing when
the "Railway Business association," with
headquarters In New York City, sent this
ppeal to Omaha:
We believe that your organisation ean
plan an Important part in bringing about a
permanent and thorough resumption of
prosperity lor au our peopio tiy router ng
conditions which will restore vitality to the
ranroaos. n tne carriers are eitner to pro
mote business by improvement of service
or create business by large expenditures
of money, their purchasing power, now seri
ously impaired, must tm restored, win you
not do us tne honor to read the enclosed
appeal and. if It meets with your approval,
causxt It to be laid before your body for
official action. Trusting we may hear from
you favorably at your early convenience, I
remain, very truly. u. m. BAfujKu,
Acting secretary.
Significant Array of Names.
Then follows an appeal from men whose
names are found In almost any guide to
manufacturers or sellers of railway equip
ment, who send out such a letter when the
Missouri river cities are trying to figure
how much the railroads are going to make
as a result of advances from the Pacific
ooast amounting to as much as 20 per cent
and advances from tho Atlantic coast.
The organization sending out the appeal
says It Is formed "to conserve the Interests
of the railways of our country and of the
manufacturers of railway material and
equipment, contractors In railway construe
tlon and dealers In miscellaneous railway
The Commercial rhib of Omaha and other
organizations are inclined to thick the
preamble of the organization tells the truth,
but cannot see where the shippers of the
Interior are to be benefited by "conserving
the Interests of the railways" to benefit

The letters will be read to the executive
committee of the club.
Expected to Succeed Stlckney as Pres-
. Ident of Great Western.
The appointment of Horace O. Burt as
one of the receiver of the Chicago Great
Western is taken as an indication In rail
road circles that Mr. Burt will become the
president of that road when It Is reorgan
ised. As president 'of the Union Pacific Mr.
Burt made a most'JjihWlable reputation as a
railroad builder, and" it is generally con
ceded that no one Is a better upbuilder of
tho physical condition of a railroad than he.
It Is recognized in railroad circles that
Mr. Burt Is the representative of the Eng
lish capitalists who own the majority of
the stock of the Great Western and as such
is expected by these capitalists to put the
road upon its feet. Thore seems to be no
doubt that Mr. Burt can do this if he is
given the money, with which to work. In
looking over the properties of the Great
Western which have now come under his
charge Mr. Burt was In Omaha a short
time ago, but his usual reticence prevailed
and he did not give any Intimation as to
what he or the English capitalists expected
to do with the road.
The rumors that the road was for salo
seem to be put at rest by the employment
of Mr. Burt and Omaha railroad men think
this is an indication that every effort will
be made to put that road upon Its feet and

Mra Edholm, who has charge of the sale
of the Red Cross Christmas stamps in
rOmaha. reports that the sale so far has
been very encouraging, but that the chief
difficulty seems to be that people do not
know where to obtain them, and Inquire
at the poatofflce for them. These stamps
cannot be obtained at the postof
flee, because they are no part of
the government's business, but they
may be had at any drug store, at
any stationery store, and at any stationery
counter In any department store. When
you mall a letter, step into the nearest
drug store or other place where the Red
Cross stamps are on sale and buy a supply.
The proceeds are devoted to the anti
tuberculosis campaign, and $0 per cent of
the total sales In Nebraska are devoted to
the work la Nebraska. Over M.Oi of these

was Mr. Bpens first trip to many of these
growing cities and hs was most favorably
Impressed with the rapid strides which
many of them are making.
"No trace of tho fire and devastation Is
descemable In the business districts of
Ban Francisco," said Mr. Bpens. "The only
traces of the fire which are left are In
the resident sections. All modern cities
practically rebuild their business district
.vorr ten years or so, and by the fire
Ban Francisco had a chance to rebuild all
at once. That chance was taken and a

Th. Btt Railway commission has noti
fied the railroads to appear January 12 and
show cause why the rates to Kaiston
should not be established on a lower and
different basis than that which now exists.
With tho consent of the commission .the
rates to Ralston were raised some time
ago to a mileage basis and that new
town was taken from the switching sone
of Omaha. On complaint of Bhlmer &
Chase, founders of tho town of Ralston,
the case was reopened and the commis
sion visited Omaha aSturday to look over
tho situation. The notice to the Burling
ton and Missouri Pacific Is the result of
that visit.
