EXPECTS HEAVY FALL TRAFFIC
"While there has been no business
boom so far, I think that the coun
try over has a better feeling and the
merchants are buying somewhat more

B. L. Wlnchell, director of traffic of

who is In the city, to remain a few
Mr. Wlnchell came ovr from Chicago,
) holding business conferences with Pre.
Ident Mohler of the Union Pacific and
topping at the Hotel Fonteoelle. Re
garding this hotel Mr. Wlnchell asserts
that it Is as good a can be round In the
country, and that It Is a pleasure to be
numbered among- Its guests.
"Over the country," aserted Mr. Wlnch
ell, "business men and others seem to be
n.ore optlmlatlo over the future. If there
l a wheat crop In Nebraska and Kansas,
such as is promised at this time, this fall
we will have all the business we can do.
At this time the prospects are very flat
tering for an enormous yield. The acre
age, I understand. Is large, and we must
hope for favorable climatic conditions.
"Until another harvest Is gathered I
hardly aee how there can be any great
amount of tonnage moved, as I under
stand that most of the wheat is sold and
out of the hands of the farmers. There
Is considerable corn in the country, but
my understanding is that a large portion
of It Is being fed."
During his stay in the city Mr. Wlnch
ell expects to make a number of calls on
old friends, of whom there are a host of
Mr. Mohler entertained at luncheon for
Mr. Wlnchell yesterday.
