Superintendent D'Bernardi Reiter
ates His Previous Statement
NO DODGE STREET VIADUCT
Truck Are to nr EleTntetl from
Harney to Webuler New
TnrtU nt Ralston to D
Built In the- "Sprtn.
When General Superintendent d'Bern.
ardl of the Missouri Pacific was In Omaha
two weeks ago, ne Rave out the Informa
tion that mammoth freight yards In the
vicinity of Ralston were contemplated,
and that owing to the growth ot the
company business In this city and on
the company lines In Nebraska, the time
was not far distant when such yards
would have to be constructed.
litre, Tuesday Superintendent 'dBer
liardl stated the Ralston yards had been
decided upon and that construction
would be commenced next year, this con
struction entailing the expenditures ot
something llko $1,X,000. Surveys for the
yards havn been made and the blue prints
and' working plans presented, so that
nowj. for them to become an assured
fact, Ihere Is nothing to do but to begin
Work and push It to completion with all
possible speed, as soon aa spring opens.
The growth of the Missouri Pacific s
business- In Omaha', according to Superin
tendent d'Bcmardl, has made the con
struction ot the new yards necessary, and
when they are finished they will be
nmnnip thA tnrpt nnil mnat rnmtilrtft In
the country. They will be the largest
on the- Missouri raclfle, even greater In j
extent and more completo than the yards j
In St Louis or Kansas City. !

The yards north of Webster"streetand
out along the Belt Line, although enor
mous In sire. Superintendent d'Bernardl
says have been outgrown, owing to the
large amount of freight handled, regard
lew of the. fact that when they were
constructed It was thought that they
would be large enough for all time. It
was also thought that additional switches
could be put In at Intervals along the
Belt Line and make this a part ot the
yards, should It ever become necessary to
enlargo them. It has been found, how
ever, that this plan would be Impractic
able, as. this trackage Is rapidly being
taken over by manufacturing plants and
The new yards at Ralston will be on
the level ground that the company owns
there, and will be connected with the
Belt I.lneby numerous tracks, enough to
enable the handing of car loads ot freight
without any delay.
No Dodw Street Vladnct.
Superintendent d'Bcmardl states that
the company ha completely abandoned
the Id ft of a viaduct over Dodge street,
whre It U crossed by the Missouri Pa
cific tracks. When he was here two
weeks ago he stated that the oompanr
had the overhead crossing under consid
eration. Now ho nyn It has been ap
proved and the work will be done next
The plan of the Missouri Pacific net
only contemplates an overhead crossing
at Dodge, but similar crossings over a'l
of the strtets between and Including Knr
nam, to n-point ns far north, perhaps, as
Cass. This new plan approved by the
Missouri Paclflo officials, means the ele
vation 6f the Belt Line tracks as far
south as Harney, to a point nearly ns
far north as Webster street. The com
pany will bridge all of the east and west
streets with steel and concrete structures,
high enough that the streets underneath
may be maintained at about the present
Inspecting the work on the Belt Line
done during last season, the superinten
dent found the grading practically com
plete and most of the steel laid. The en
tire new construction, he says, will be
finished Inside ot thirty days, and the
second 'track will be In use before tho
end of the present year.

Do Your Mailing
Early is Warning
from Uncle Samuel
The latest Christmas cry Is not "Do
your shopping early," but, "Do your
mailing early." Of course, the appeal
comes from the Postofflco department
and It Is being made from Maine to Cali
fornia. The department at Washington
Is soon to Irene placards for distribu
tion from each office, which urge patrons
to assist In aoldlng a congested com! I
tlon of tho malls during the holiday rush
These cards will be prominently displayed
In the public buildings of Omahn.
It Is pointed out that many persons
wait until a day or two before Christ
mas, depending upon tho distance their
parcels aro to go, before mailing presents,
hoping thus to have the gifts reach their
destination on Christmas day. This prac
tice, postofflco officials say, defeats Us
own ends. Inasmuch as tho rush becomes
so great that many of the presents cannot
bo delivered until after December 2J.
In order that compliance with the re
quests that All Yuletldc greetings and
presents bo consigned early may be tha
mure rendy. permission has been granted
for patrons to direct on packages, In ad
dition to the regulation address, ".Sot to
