MKKRE, S. D.. July S. (Special.) The
railway situation in South Dakota appear
to be Buffering from a blight of the
weather; the financial situation, th high
coat of living, or some other equally potent
crfus to bring about a paralysis In active
construction work, or the finishing up of
proposed work which showed up In bright
and favorable colors a few months ago
"with rosy promises to many localities' of
early railway connections with the outer
world. Less than a year ago the air was
full of rumors of railway extension work;
the engineering forces of the different rail
way companies operating In South Dakota
were being worked at full capacity, and
plans for a large ampunt of new mileage
were not only freely discussed by the gen
eral public but by railway men themselves
Late in the fall, for some unexplained rea
son the preliminary work which was under
way on many proposed lines, was dropped,
and the engineering forces shifted to other
.locations or dismissed.. . While this was
aolng en there appeared to be a general
feeling that such work was only being
postponed until spring, when it would again
be pushed. But spring has come and gone
and midsummer is at band without a sign
of revival of the bright prospects of less
than a year ago.
iVorthnnlrrn Mo pa.
The Northwestern road stopped short all
Its work on the proposed line from Hitch
cork to Oh Ida, scattering Its engineering
force and hauling away piles of material
which had been stacked at Hltchcoolc for
this line. The preliminary work on the
lines north from Its Plerre-Rapld City line,
which wss kept up until the men. were
driven In by the snow last winter, has not
been resumed this year.' Other preliminary
'work has been entirely cut out. That com
oany has completed its line east from
Belle Fourche to Newell on the government
' irrieation project and scattered the con
duction force; within a few days it will
' have completed the line from Blunt to
Gettysburg, and nothing more Is In sight
in that part of the state.
The only thing In the way of Northwest
ern extension which appears to show the
quickening of life is the extension west
from Dallas. This line is proposed to cross
Tripp county and on the strength of such
a line the town of Lamro was moved to
"Winner, several miles north, where the
railway officials had promised railway con
nections before the close of this year. After
backing1 and filling several times on tbat
promise, graders are- now being sent to
Dallas, and the line will likely be finished
to Winner this year, but probably not any
' farther. With- that work done, the outlook
is not bright for any further Northwestern
extension work In South Dakota this year
and approximately the same conditions
exist in regard to extension work by that
company in other, northwestern states where
plana have been pushed.
In Milwaukee Territory.
The Milwaukee company appears to be In
about the same position. They have cut
.out all preliminary work all over the state,
Their proposed line from Hobrldge out Into
J the thunder Butto country has stopped at
, Timber Lake, about half way out. They are
yet working on their Fox Ridge line, and
while the promoters of the new town of
Faith are selling lota on the strength of the
'assertion that the line will be finished to
that place before snow" files next winter,
the probabilities are that the loudest whistle
vthey will hear at Faith before another year
. will be that of a steam breaking plow.
. The Northern Pacific extension down the
river from Mandan, which was to get into
South Dakota this year, is reported to be
at 'a complete halt, with no probability of
.Us getting any farther this year.
The Minneapolis & St, Louis oompany,
which holds an. option on the grade between
this city and Aberdeen, has, through Us
representatives In conference with business
men of this city, secured an extension of
' ninety days in Its option, carrying It up to
the 1st of October. They give the excuse
of the money situation In the east as the
reason for asking for this time. That they
- cannot work until they have finished nego
tiations for the necessary cash, and there
has been delay in this. ' '
Several new companies have filed articles
of incorporation for territory affecting por
tions of this state, but none of them show
' any Indications of getting beyond the inoor
: potation stage this year, and the probablll
' ties of railway exteuslon In this part of the
northwest for at least a year are not very
brlcjht, ... ..
Just what the real reason la for this sud
den dropping of projected lines Is not given
to the public. One authority says It Is
scarcity ot money;, another that the legis
latures of the northwest all meet next win
ter and the companlea want to know what
treatment they are to receive before they
, venture any turther; others ascribe It to
the crop outlook, but that is a late reason
and could hardly apply when the dropping
. out process was commenced last fall. While
these appear to be the reasons advanoed by
' the railways the-uselvea. the "general pub
' lie" is at sea, and many ot that class are
' narrow enough to ascribe It to an agree.

The America will carry a crew of six

600 gallons of gasoline in a steel tank.
Equipped for a day's run It could oarry

Two engines will drive It, one ot TO to SO-

Action Releasing Those Who
Have Stayed Out.
The street car strike which waa Inaugu
rated in Omaha September 19. 1909. was
officially declared off last night at a meet
ing of the street oar men's union and all
of the strikers are now privileged, to re
turn to work, for the company if they and
the company so desire. In speaking of the
matter, O. J. Randall, secretary of the
union, stated last evening;
'There are 362 of the street car men who
took part In the strike last September who
have never resumed work with the eom
pany. Of these there are about 160 who
have remained in the city, while the re
nvalnder have scattered over the country
and are now employed In many different
cities. Those who remained In Omaha, are.
troat of them, employed In other capaci
ties, but now that the strike has been
formally dropped they are free to return
to work. While the strike hss been vir
tually oft all winter, still It has never been
officially ended until the adoption ot the
resolution tonight. We thought It was not
fair nor necessary to continue It longer, so
the action was taken."

slblllly. The South Omaha city council wrestled
with the problem of city finances In a spe
cial sesalon last night. The object of the
session waa the Introduction of an ordi
nance to amend previous ordinances pro
viding for paving to pay a rate of in
terest amounting to 6Vi per cent The
bonds previously have borne S per cent,
but the last Issue of bonds brought no
bidders, so after having twice readvertised
without aucoes It wsa thought advisable
to raise the rat of Interest. The first step
In the proceeding was to Introduce the
amendatory ordinance. The ordinance will
affect an Issue of $208,000 worth of paving
The council took this action after it was
found Impossible to sell any large quantity
of the bonds to local capitalists. Th state
treasurer was also appealed to to see It
any money was in thet treasury whloh un
der the state law might have been used
for the purchase of the South ' Omaha
municipal bonds. At the present season ot
the year It wa found that the state wo
short of funds for uch an investment.
The South Omaha Commercial club re
luctantly agreed with the council that th
rate of Interest must be raised. ,
