Hutchlnion. Kan., July 6.—The talk
about th«- removal ««f the Santa Fe

persistent, this. dlvTsien rejnoval
theory, and- weJI Informed people say
that ihe change Is bound to be made,
sooner ov later.
Yesterday a Santa Fe official, n rep-
resentative of the passenger department.
It is understood, anil whTse name could
not be learned, talked to some of tip* busi-
ness men and sorpe of Ills particular
friends here regarding the proposed
t-nange. His friends hav- *--
'count of the lOft-mlle* d
pay which the company gives to the men
In train service. Some of the divisions
are too long and others are too short and
this makes She pay roll larger than it
should be If the divisions were made
equal. There Is a short-run. 73 milo, be-
tween Newton and Emporia, and a run
across'there makes the trainman pay for
a hundred miles. The division through
here to Dodge City Is long, and the men
draw pay by the mile, when the mileage
Is more tijan 100 for the run. so there is
no saving on the long division, when the
short run causes a loss. The short run
gives less work than It should ftlve nnd
the engines have too much to do when
they make the long run from Newton to

day In the Interest of n -proposed electric
line between Muskogee and Fort Gibson.

time, and It was s.Weral weeks ago learn-

road would be of paramount Importance
to the town In many ways, and It Is to be

Its advent means more tine resl-
more people and a rnpld advance-

much for the Industrial development of
both Muskogee and Fort Gibson.
INCREASE IIN EARNINGS
THE SANTA FE MAKES GOOD MAY
The Santa Fe's May statement showed
/in Increase of 2 per cent In gross earn-
ings nnd a decrease of 10 per cent In net.
Tne April statement had shown an in-
case of 2 per cent in gross and a de-
ease of 2 per cent In et.
The showing for the eleven months of
le current fiscal year, however, is very
vorablc. Gross earnings show an In-
ease of J5.190.941, or nearly In p.-, rent,
hlle net earnings after expense-., taxes
id rentals, show an Increase of jl,4t 5,-
1. or 7 per cent.
Assuming that June will show about
le same results as those of June a vear
ago, Atchison's exhibit for the current
fiscal year will compare with that of the
• ended June 30. 1903, as follows-
Gross earnings >67 541 338

It is probable that June will show "a
slight increase In gross earnings. Net
earnings should be favorable, as they
will compare with a poor showing lust
year, tlfe loss, being $611,000. largely on
account of floods.
Other Income Is taken at' Inst yean
figures, although It is probable there
will be an Increase. An allowance of
$800,049 is made for Increased fixed
tbarges on account of new bonds sold.
As the company will save $100,000 In
fixed charges owing to the retirement
of $2,500,040 serial debentures during the
year, this estimate is probably high.
The balance for the common stock In
1904 will be a little over 9 per cent, a gain

Muskogee, I. Tf. July 6.—The new
federal jails In this city and in Ard-
more, South McAlester and Vinita, are
almost completed. And the amount of
money appropriated for building them
Is all exhausted and no more is avail-
able. The original appropriation was
for $140,000 for the four. This sum
included the cost of furnishing then
and that Is where the shortage comes.
The buildings are completed. They
lark equipment and a few small things
but can be occupied. The jail at this
place is ready for occupancy. It will
be supplied with what is necessary in
some way or other. Marshal Ben-
nett is In communietion with the de-
partment at. Washington and will ar-
range for the details as rapidly as pos-
sible. The cost of the jail at this place
has been $38,000 up to this time. It
is estimated that $3,000 will be requir-
ed to complete it
With the occupancy of these new fed-
eral jails there will be better accom-
modations of the needs of the depart-
ment in the way'of places in which to
keep prisoners. The number of pris-
oners tn the jails of the territory Is
greater than In an pother Jails in the
country. There arerrarely fewer than
100 prisoners in the jail at this place.
At present it is an old wooden stock-
ade with afT inadequate number of cag-
es. The prisoners are retained more
by the watchfulness of the guards
than by the strength of the struc-
ture. The stockade surrounds a large
tract of land and is supplied with
guard boxes on top of the fence. These
boxes are occupied at all times by men
armed with Winchester rifles.
The new jail will probably have one
armed guard on duty but this will bo
a precautionary measure rather than
a necessity as at present.

general of Canada notwithstanding the
unofficial announcement of the selec-

including those of president of the

labor," the say-
I ing runs, and in a sense it
is true. But even love
canuot lighten labor or
make it easy for the
woman who is in constant
suffering from inflamma-
tion, bearing-down pains
other womanly dis-
eases. The one thipg that
can make work easy for
women is sound health,
and Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription is the thing
that will give sound health
to sick women.
Dr. iMerce has so much
faith in bis " Prescription "
that he offers to pay *500 in legal money
of the Uuited States for any case of Leu-
corrhea, Female Weakness, Prolapsus, or
Falling of Womb which he cannot cure.
All he aska is a fair and reasonable trial
of his means of cure.
