"The Idea expressed sometime ago by
The Bee that President Mohler's powers
would 'be elaborated as a result of tho
merger dissolution Is entirely in lino with
subsequent events and opinions," says a
railroad man In Intimate touch with what
Is going on.
'That would naturally follow, of course,
since tho Union Pacific's importance as
a transcontinental road would be en
lianced. Here la the way we have figured
it out: Julius Kruttschnltt, heretofore
Feneralisslmo of all the Harrlman forces,
subordinate only to Judge Lovctt, will
hereafter be entirely divorced In author
ity over the Union Pacific and Mohlqr.
He will become chairman of the execu
tive committee of tho Southern Pacific,
Hnd as such, the big mogul of that road,
but that alone.
"lAJvett will remain in his present posi
tion, and ulohler will report directly to
liovett and none other. Mohler, as presi
dent of the Union Pacific, with head
quarters In Omaha, also will have au
thority over the Oregon Short Une and,
we feel sure, over tho Oregon & Washing
ton Railroad and Navigation company.
And he will be president In every sense
of the word. '
"Now, this Is what railroad men expect
to hear announced when the time for of
ficial announcement comes."
Railroad men who. aro advised, say. the.
'Union Pacific has 7O,X,00i) .or JSO.OOO.W,

Volders refusing to sell the San Francisco- J
Qgden line cpmpletlng the, -Overland's
.Omaha-Pacific coatt road.
"Tliero are several ways around that,"
said this man, "one of which might be
for tho Union Pacific to make It so un
profitable by traffic alliances with other
roads east of Ogden, that the Southern
Pacific people would not care to hold
onto the property. They would certainly
not be In aB advantageous a position ;o
treat with tne lines cast of Ogden as
would the Union Pacific, Its own main
line competing with these others. The
Union Pacific would also he In position
to extend Its own line to San Francisco."

The piano business in Omalia during
the year 1312 has been the most-'satisfac
tory of any season In the history of tho
business. This Is according to the state
ment of Mr. W. J. Eden, munager of
Hayden Bros.' piano department.
"The piano sales ducing tho last year,
were of such a character as tp encourage
us to expect even greater business dur-
lug the coming twelve months," ex
plained Mr. Eden. "The Hayden Bros."
trade has exceeded that of ally other year
exceeded It by a great deal. The safes
also have been substantial, and '.lie per
sons who have bought pianos und player
pianos have taken only the best Instru
ments. We sell pianos on' liberal terms,
and have found that tho percentage of
those that are returned because of de
faults In payment was much les In 1912
than in any other year.
I'luyer Very I'liimlnr.
"Player pianos especially the famous
Angelus have been hi great demand, and
the sales of player pianos In Omaha have
been very much larger than ever before.
Homes that do not have a member of the
family who can play an Instrument get
a mechanical player, for every one recog
nizes that no homo Is ifcallya homo un
less It has the best class of music. The
Angelus player Is so nearly perfect, that
It Is sought by many buyers every
week." . . .
