.Iiiiiich A. IMivIh appointed Commissioner,
with Headquarters In
The management of the Santa Fe
Route, appreciating the vast im-
portance of developeing local busi-
ness enterprises in the territory
taversed by its lines, has created an
industrial department, in charge of
an experienced and competent Com-
missioner, whose sole concern it
will be to assist in such develope-
ment by acting as a nn-ans of com-
munication between would-be in-
vestors seeking profitable employ-
ment of capital on the one hand and
the innumerable opportunities for
such investment in Western territo-
ry upon the other. The Third Vice-
President of the Santa Ke has ac-
cordingly addressed a communica-
tion on this subject to the General
Freight Agents of the entire Sys-
tem, a copy of which communica-
tion we give below. The signifi-
cance of this benificent policy to
communities richer in opportuni-
ty than in capital will at once be
apparent, and u will doubtless
meet with hearty co-operation
Chicogo, Nov. 20, 1896.
Mr. F. C. Gay, G. F. A., Topeka, Kan.
Mr. L. f. Polk, G. F. A., Galveston,
Mr' E. Chambers, G. F. A., Los An-
Guntlkmev, In pursuance with
the policy wc have already talked
about, of assiaitng in every way
we consistently can in locating new
enterprises and at the same time
fostering industries already loca-
ted on our line of road, we have es-
tablished an Industrial Depart-
Mr. Jas. A. Davis has been placed
in charge of this department with
the title of Industrial Commission-
er, with headquarters at Chicago.
This department will, so far as it
seems compatible with propriety
take a paternal interest in Ihe dr.
velopement of the towns and terri-
tory served by our company, and
it will respond promptly to all calls
for co-operation in the establish-
ment of factories, location of mills
and the development of any and all
resources that may be discovered.
It will endeavor, where necessa-
ry. to plp.ce produce in touch with
markets, and in a general way it
will undertake to bring about im-
proved conditions all over our Sys-
It will not attempt to boom any
one" town as against another; in
fact, it will not in any way favor
booms, but will proceed on the the-
ory that a solid, continous growth
is better than a booin, and its ef-
forts will be in that direction.
It will not take an)' financial in-
terest in proposed industries, as it
will have no money to invest nor
cash to contribute.
The Industrial Department wil
not assist in the location of cremer
ies where there are 110 cows, nor
rolling mills in a country without
either iron ore, fuel ro coke, nor in
any way will it knowingly lend its
support to a proposition that seems
wrong, either g • ^graphically, com-
mercially or financially.
Manufactories that consume na-
tive raw materials will be encou-
raged. For example, in the corn
belt there does not appear to be
any reason why hominy mills,
glucose, syrup, sugar and starch
factories, if properly managed,
should not thrive.
These factories should all begin
in a small way. The capital inves-
ted 11011 Id not all be put into work-
ing plants. It takes money to oper-
ate a factory after it is built, and
the primary essential is good man-
agement, Nothing succeeds with
poor man agenient.
I write you quite at length on
this subject, because it seems very
important to me that everybody
along our line ought to know how
we feel about this matter. We
want to be in touch w 1I1 people we
Serve, and we want them 10 know
that we appreciate that anything
we do towards building up and en-
riching the towns and country we
traverse builds up and enriches
Mr, Davis wiil be glad, at any
time, to hear from Hoards of Trade,
Commercial clubs, Farmers' Alli-
ances or any organized bodies, as
well as firms and individuals, and
will make it his business to'visit
and advise with any community
wishing to establish manufactories
or in any way desiring to improve
Circ. lar annoiii^eeing Mr. Davis'
appointment will be issued today,
and I think it would be well for
yOu to advise all your subordinate
officers as to what we desire to ac-
complish, in order that we may get
the greatest results from the Indus-

Washington D. C., Dec. 11—Dele-
gate Flynn of Oklahoma has dined
with Mark Hanna, and since then
it has been gossip that if he is of-
fered the governorship of Oklaho-
ma at the expiration of Renfrow's
term, he will tak 1 it.
When his name was linked with
this office before his coming, Flynn
was reported as saying, that he
could not take it under any circum-
stances. To-day when questioned
as to the revived rumors, he said:
"1 am not in any sense, a candi
date for this office. If the place
were offered to me without solicita-
tion on my part nnd my accep-
tance of it, seemed to be the best
thing for the territory and for all
concerned, I might accept it, but I
will not be a candidate."

How To Prevent Croup.
Some Reading That Will Prove
: Interesting To Young Mothers
How To Guard Against The Dig-
Croup is a terror to young moth,
era and to post them concerning
the cause, lirst symptoms and treat-
ment is the object of this item.
• heoiigin of croup is a common
cold. Children who are subject to
it take cold very easily and croup
is almost sure to follow. The first
symptom is hoarseness, this is soon
followed by a peculiar rough
co.igli, which is easily recognised
and will never be forgotten by one
who has heard it. The time to act
is when the child first becomes
hoarse. If Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy is freely given all tendency
lo croitp will soon disappear.
'-veil after tile croupy cough has
developed it will prevent the at-
tack. There is no danger in giving
this remedy for it contains nothing
injurious. For Sale by Blake A
