I Notes of the
New State Railroad News.
Guthrie, Okla., June 18.—That the
Gould interests are going to get busy
in Oklahoma railroad circles is indi-
cated by the semi-official announce-
ment that they had secured control
of the Oklahoma Central, an indepen-
dent line now in operation from Le-
high to Purcell and under construc-
tion from Purcell to Chickasha The
road gives a western outlet from the
coal fields o the Choctaw nut Ion and
for practically its entire length tra-
verses a country which had been en.
tirely unoccupied by the railroads. It
croHsea several north and south lines,
but Is the only east and west road
in the two territrles. with the one ex-
ception of the Choctaw, now owned
by the Rock Island.
The Gould Interests now have but
one line in either territory, the Iron
Mountain line running from Coffey
vllle Kan., to Fort Smith, Ark. Ru-
mors have been afloat fr several
years that they intended invading the
Oklahoma field, and It had been com-
monly talked that the proposed line
from Caney, Kan., southwest through
Pawhuska to Guthrie was a Missouri
Pacific proposition, but that line, at
least so far as any Missouri Pacific
conmctions are concerned, now
seems to have fallen through entirely.
The Katy Is also planning a num-
ber of extensions. Reports official
In their Character, state that the Katy
will build a branch from Shawnee
northeast to Fallis, giving direct con-
nections with Guthrie, and another
to the northwest so as to give more
direct communications between Mus-
kogee and Shawnee. Work Is now
progressing on the shortening of the
line between 8 haw nee and Atoka, and
*'ith that end in view three miles of
track between Ada and Konawa are
being moved from the river embank-
ment to a new grade along the rock
rliff. Additional train service is also
to be given on the Katy branch be
tween Muskogee and Osage Junction,
giving the people along that branch
a chance to catch the fast trains for
St. Ix>uls and Kansas City at Musko-

I has made a proposition to the citi-
j /.ens of Ponca City vvnlch Is favora-
bly considered there. The promoters
| of the road ask $25,000 from Ponca
jcity, but will allow $600 per mile for
right of way from the east line of the
county to the Chickasha river and
$10,000 for terminal facilities in the
city, reducing the actual cash bonus
The family of Agent C. W. Jaminet
ot the Katy is erpected to arrive in
the city Friday from Sedalla, Mo.
There is an over supply of firemen
and brakemen on the Rock Island ow-
ing to slack business, and the force
is being reduced. It Is not expected

Effective June 23 the M.
Oklahoma City and Jennings will be
resumed this week. On account of
the scarcity of cars last fall the bal

the winter huge pits of gumbo have
been burned at Alsuma. I. T., where
the pits are located. The first bal-
lasting train will leave Alsuma on
Thursday of this week, t Is being
planned to ballast one mile each day

remains unballasted will be placed in

Hemp In the Ozark®.
Steps have been taken by the ag-
ricultural department of the Frisco
road to revive the hemp growing in-
dustry in the Ozark country. With
this object In view, W. S. White, land
commissioner of the Frisco-Rock Is-
land system, has gone to Lexington
and Cynthia to confer with a colony
of Kentucky hemp growers and offer
tiiem Inducements to locate In this
Time was when practically all the
hemp produced In this country cam.
from Missouri, northern Tennessee
and Kentucky. Fortunes were made
in the Industry from 1850 to 1870,
but the cost of production on ac-
count of the lack of machinery put
an end to its cultivation in Missouri.
In late years machinery has been
built for harvesting, planting and pre
paring the crop for the market, and
the Frisco road is convinced that the
industry can be revived here with
