The railroad pass that comes back to
the Union Pacific aa a rello was Issued
to Chief Washakie of the Shoshone In

ing the early days of the construction
rendered some valuable services to the
Union Pacific and to reward him, he was
given an annual pass over the system, j
that then consisted of a single track line j
from Omaha out into Wyoming.
It Is doubtful If Chief Washakie ever .
used the pass, for It Is bright and clean, J
though the Ink used In filling it out Is i
a little faded. It seems that years ago,
prior to his death, together with some 1
other relics. Chief Washakie turned the j
pass over to Judge Carter of Uinta
county, Wyoming. The Judge was the
father of Mrs. Maurice Gibson, pure food

of her father the pass came Into her j
possession, and recently in looking
