OMAHA ROADS READY
COT TRAIN SERVICE
Officials Will Meet Demands of
Vatiinst T)ofAn Oouncil
for Movement of Troops
Omaha railroad officials are work
ing in harmony with the executive
council of the American Railway as
sociation, which has requested that
all roads immediately readjust sched
ules to as to make available the max
imum transportation energy for mov
ing troops, food, fuel and supplies.
The action off the council has been
anticipated and for more than a
month traffic and operating officials
of the lines of the central west have
been in daily session in Chicago, fig
uring out schedules for the rearrange
ment of the passenger and freight
Although officials have not given
publicity to their findings, it is known
that they have made progress. It
is said at the Omaha offices of the
railroads that the work hai been car
ried to such a point that numerous
trains on forty-eight hours' notice
could be discontinued and that inside
of another forty-eight hours the
schedulea would be such that the pub
lio would suffer little inconvenience.
It is said that when the new ar
rangement! are in working order
trains out of Omaha will have an en
tirely new lineup.
Instead of a dozen east bound
trains leaving inside of two hours,
the schedule will provide for one
train out over one road at a certain
hour; perhaps an hour later a train
out over another road, and so on dur
ing the day.
A ticket good over one road will
be good over any of the six roads
operating trains between Omaha and
Chicago. Similar rules will apply in
connection with trains moving in
other directiona. Operations at all
other terminals will be similarly ad
justed. It is said that the methods to be
employed will release i large num
ber of locomotives for freight and
Many branch line trains, will be
taken off, and on lines where there
are two trains each way daily, a
passenger and a freight, probably a
mixed train will handle the business.
Officials at headquarters of all the
Omaha roada have notified retired
employes that they are likely to be
called back into aervice at any time.
Such men as are able physically to
stand the work will go onto light runs
as engineers, firemen, conductors and
I Cut Off Excursions.
With ' the curtailing of the train
service abandonment of all cheap
rates is expected to follow. The Ohio
and Indiana railroads have set the
pace and are out with official circu
lars stating that there is a demand
for all motive power for freight and
government service and that until the
war is over cheap rate excursions
have been abandoned.
Several linea are taking ateps to
discontinue the running of parlor and
Railroad officials fear the curtailing
or me passenger service will nave a
serious effect on state and county
fairs and other summer and fall gath
erings. Dog Poisoners and Hen.
Roost Raiders Are Busy

oned to death in Omaha within the
