President -A. I Mooter and his associ
ates of the Union Pacific railroad were
guests st a banquet at the 'Commercial
club Thursday given by the Commercial
club In honor of Mr. , Uohler's elevation
to t$ prfftdency of.tbe road. 1
Befldes being marketf by 'many ezpres-
stons of good will between railroad offi
cials and the business Interests of the
city, the banquet was made a memorable
one by its unique setting. A complete
miniature reproductloa of the Union Pa
cific, with double tracks, block sfctnal
system, rolling stock, depots and tele
graph lines extended tbe entire length of
the long table set In the form of the
letter U. The entire plant was electri
fied. Two or three trains plied back and
forth from "Omaha" to "Ban Francisco,"
the semaphores of the blocking signal
system showed at the proper time and
the telegraph instruments In the four
little depots, connected with the chief
dispatcher's office la the Union-station.
ticked out every trsln order, just as it
went out on the real Union Pacific
Great Night for Wrecks.
There were more wrecks on the Union
Pacific last night than' In any five years
of the road's previous history. The first
on was very early In the evening, when
a happy banqueter placed an oyster on
the half shell on the track In front of
the flying Overland Limited and threw
that train and Its. whole load of passen
gers Into the ditch. Next a spreading rail
threw a train of live stock Into the ditch
somewhere between Cheyenne and North
Platte. Then someone dropped his menu
on the track near Salt Lake City and
a McKeen motor oar flew the track.
K1v or six rear end collisions enlivened
The little cars and locomotives were
perfect reproductions of the Union Pa
cifio rolling stock, even to the name of
the road and numbers on them. The en
gines carried eleotrlo headt.'ghts. It re
quired 1.M0 ties to lay the road, which
It stretched out In a straight line, would
have extended more than a block. Dr.
F. II. Mlllaner, electrical wlsard of the
Union roclflc. was general manager, su
perintendent, trainmaster, roadmastsr
and section boss of the road.
In aldUloa to the miniature railroad,
roses decorated the tables. The room,
with a picture of E. II. Ilarrlmaa at one
end In the center, was decorated with
palms and greenery and a myriad of col
ored electrlo lights.
Tbe dinner, prepared under direction of
Steward Pryor .of the Commercial club,
was full of pleasing surprises, such as
a cherry and grape fruit salad. In which
ine cnerries were siuiiea wun lUDeris,
and a nessclrode pudding representing an
Immense egg In a nest, the nest being
made of candy drawn Into fine threads.

Ward M. Burgess presided as toast
master and Introduoed President A. L.
Mohler. Oeneral Bollultor N. H. ' Lootnla
and Vice President J. A. Munroe of the
Union Pacific, James E. Kelby of the
Burlington and President David Cole and
W. B. Wright of the Commercial club.
In responding to the toast, "Our Oueot,"
Mr. Cole said that It the eastern terminus
of the Union Paclflo had not been
located here, Omaha would now be
about aa big 'as Ptattamouth or Blair.
The business men of Omaha were glad,
he said, that an Omaha man had been
made president of this road and they
could be assured that "where Omaha l(,
there will he be also." He related some
of tba history of the road, paid a compli
ment to K. II. Itarrlman and unveiled
the picture of Harrtman In the rear of the
Mr. Cole read telegrams from Robert
8. Lovett, L. J. Bpence, Julius Krutt
schnltt and J. C. Stubbs of the Harrim&n
lines, also from E. H. Wood and Charles
J. Lane of the Omaha offices, express
ing regret that they could not be present.
Mohler Expresses Krieadshlp.
Mr. " Mohler replied briefly, expressing
his appreciation of the ovation tendered
him, satisfaction ' with the commercial
development of the cTty and the friendly
feeling existing between the people of
the city and his road, and the belief that
the development of the city and Its sur
rounding territory has but fairly begun.
He sold he felt tempted to scold the
clubmen a little, to give them a lot of
figures from the railroad standpoint, but
he was too happy to do any scolding.
W. 8. Wright, responding to the toast
'The Overland." told of the Union
Pacific, past, present and future. He saw
n vision of the future Union Pacific,
with a massive stone bridge and
four trucks across the Missouri river;
a new passenger depot which Impressed
blm as much like the Pennsylvania
terminal In New Tork City, though
larger; and subway tracks running out
to Twenty-fourth street, went of which
were giant terminals with hundreds of
factories; magnificent docks along the
river bank and the nver rilled with
steamers. His vision included the destiny
of the present Union Pacifio officials,
Mr. Mohler to become chairman of the
board of directors of the Harrlman lines,
Mr. Monroe to take Mr. Mohler'a present
position and Mr. Lane to become "com
missioner of railways" of the United
N. H. Locrals, general solicitor of the
Union Pacific, replied to Mr. Wright.
He said the banquet. In conjunction with
the near approach of Christmas remlndod
him of "Peace on earth, good will to

TEADWOOD, a D., Dec. 32.-(Speclal.)
In another round in the circuit court,
this time at Sturgls, Mrs. Melissa Llnch
of this city was victorious over her di
vorced husband, Samuel O. Llnch. The
Llnch divorce suit tried here a year ab
by Judge Boucher was one of the most
sensational ' in these parts, Mrs. Llnch
securing a divorce decree and a third
Interest In her husband's ranch at Pied
mont. In that trial her two grown-up
sons testified against their mother, and
were roundly scored by the court. Shortly
afterward Llnch sold the property In
question to Richard Stoll of Sturgls,
after Mrs. Llnch had given Stoll "notice
of her Interest. She was unable to se
cure her rights and went Into court.
Judge Rice now deciding .that 8 to if should
be trustee of the third interest for Mrs.
Llnch. Llnch and Stoll claimed that a
clerical error In filing the deed to the
property had shut out Mrs. Llnch.
