Great Stretches of Land Southeast

The Missouri river has resumsd Its ero
sion of the banks on the Iowa side south
east of Lake Manawa and the high
priced farm land ia now disappearing at
the rate of many acres a day. In the last
two days the current has cut Into the
land a distance of mo feet, and has gone
eastward nearly three-quarters of mile
since the rutting began a few week
Yesterday only forty acres of the Kl
wards farm remained, and at the rats

compilsed ion acres, of land, valued at
$aoo an acre. Splendid crops of corn and
small grain were growing on the land.

the probability seemed certain that tho

of tho park land. Long stretches ot the

the general ruin and swept awny.
George C. Clark of the Leonard Kverett
company went to the scene yesterday
afternoon and returned after an Inspec
tion of several hours. He wrote Mr.
Everett that a farm house on the Ever
ett lend was doomed and doubted that It
could be moved In time to escape de
struction. Mr. Clark explained the case
of the rapid destruction ot the farm land
at the present time as being due to the
fact that the liver has now reached a
section where the subsoil Is all sand,
which melts with extraordinary rapidity
under action of the swift current.
"No one can realise the rapidity of the
destruction unless he sees what Is going
on," said Mr. Clark. "The current Is
rushing along with extraordinary rapid
ity and the sound of the falling earth
Into the water Is almost continuous. The
cutting la different from anything I have
ever seen the liver do. The point of at

Big Ogden Gateway
Case Won by U. P.
The Interstate Commerce commission
Wednesday settled one ot the most Impor
tant passenger rale controversies Which
It hss ever been called upon to review,
when It handed down Its decision In the
Ogden gateway case.
In l'U the I'rilon Pacific system an
nounced Its Intention to discontinue the
Interchange with the IVnver & Rio
Grande at Ogden of passenger business
to or from points on the Oregon Short
Line a part of the Union Pacific system.
The Denver R0 Grande contended
that as these rates had been In effect
about eighteen years they should not be
cancelled. The Union Pacific stood upon
what It regarded as Its legal right te
retire from an arrangement which short
hauled Its own lines and contended that
It waa entitled to the long haul on pas
senger trafflo to and from territory
served by the Oregon Short Una, The
principal reason assigned was the large
expenditures made by the Union Pacific
in the construction of branch lines par
ticularly to Yellowstone park and In
Oregon Short Line territory, the testi
mony Indicating that In recent year
$100,000,000 waa expended In the construc
tion of branches to enable the Union Pa
cific to serve Idaho and adjacent terrl
tory, while the Denver A Rio Orande on
the other hand had Invested nothing In
Oregon Short Line territory.

the majority opinion of the commission,
In addition to the shorter mlloage the
service of the Union Psclflo in point ot
time la much superior. The fastest train
over Its rails from Omaha reaches Or den
