OMAHA IS CENTER
OF RAIL SYSTEM
FOR SINGLE DAY
Oelay in Departure of Fran
Waiters llakes Gate City
Headquarters of North
, For the first time in history the
operation of the 9,000 miles of the
"Northwestern railroad system is be
ing conducted out of Omaha. It is
an innovation and is not likely to
ever again occur. This change in
the method of handling Northwest
ern business is due to the fact that
its recently appointed general man
ager. Frank Walters, was unable to
leave for Chicago - Thursday night,
.? as' he had planned.
.'''In his new position Mr. Walters
kept two telegraph wires loaded with
messages that were 'going out to
the chiefs of the various departments
over which he has jurisdiction. Mr.
; Walters went to Chicago last night
and along with .him went thcop
srating headquarters of the system.
, 1 . 1 Mof e Changes Made. '
' Genetal Manager Walters an
ounces the following changes in the
operating departments, of the sys
tem: B. E. Terpning becomes superin
tendent of the Wisconsin - division,
- Vice George ."Dailey promoted and
transferred to Chicago.
J. C. Cowan is appointed superin
tendent of the Galena division, with
. headquarters in Chicago, succeeding
B.,Ey Terpning, promoted.
J. Leppla is appointed assistant su
perintendent of the Galena division,
lucceeding J. C. Cowan.
W. B. Golden is appointed assistant
: superintendent of the Chadron di
, rision, succeeding J. Leppla.
F.'W. Saxton becomes chief train
Jispatcher at Fremont, succeeding
W. B. Golden. v
C H. Reynolds is appointed assist-
int general superintendent at Nor
folk, succeeding S. M. Braden, who
comes to Omaha as general superin
tendent. ' Office Is Abolished.
At .Huron, S. D., the office of gen
tral superintendent is abolished and
the' Minnesota and Dakota and the
Pierre) Rapid City and Northwestern
. railway divisions are placed under
- !he direction of the general superin
tendent in Chicago. C T. Dike, who
' has been general superintendent in
i. Huron, goes to Boone, la., as assist
ant general superintendent.
Passenger Agent Vacancy
' x At U. P- Remains Unfilled
With the resignation of W. S. Bas-
mger as. general passenger agent ot
'the - Union Pacific, it is considered
doubtful if the vacancy will be filled.
All of the general passenger office
business has been turned over to W,
H. Murray, the assistant, and it seems
to be the consensus of opinion that
this arrangement will maintain.
There is considerable ". speculation
as to who will be appointed federal
manager of the Union Pacific. It is
understood that a number of names
are under consideration, but up to this
time, it is asserted. Hale Holden, who
is at the head of the zone that in
cludes the. Union Pacific, has not inti-
: ' mated his selection. Many' of the
railroad men believe that. President
v Calvin will pick the plum, and there are
still others who incline to the opinion
that the lucky man may be W. L.
t Park, now acting.president of the
Great Western. v
.It is argued that Mr. Park, being a
comparatively young man and being
familiar with the road, having been its
f. general superintendent for many
years, is one of the most logical men
1 to be picked for the place. Mr. Park
. . denies that he has any inclination in
this direction and asserts that so far
- is he knows his name has never been
"mentioned in connection with the
Saturday is Last Day on
Which to Pay Income Tax
. Saturday, June IS, is the last day on
which income and excess profits taxes
A - may be paid. Thousands of notices of
assessment mailed out to persons who
'.- filed returns have been sent out from
the office of Internal Revenue Col
lector Loomis. Many people have al
ready sent in checks or drafts or have
appeared in person to make their
; Taxpayers are urged not to forget
to detach the left hand part of the
fonn mailed to them and to return
; it'with the tax money.
The ' collector's office is receiving
hundreds of smalt checks from tax-
ayers with incomes ranging around
1,200. All unmarried men are liable
for the tax for the amount of their
income above $1,000, married men for
their income above $2,000.
