in Carrying Them Out.

Pennsylvania System Taken as a
Model by Great Rival Ballast
Will Be Rock Xew Rails,
Cars and Engines.
CHICAGO, Nov. . (Special.) The
death of Edward H. Harriman is to
have no effect upon the extensive im
provement plans which he inaugurated
Tor the New York Central lines, and
the task of rebuilding a large portion
of the lines is to be carried to com
pletion with vigor. In the accom
plishment of this task there is to be
expended, during the coming year, a
total of $85,000,000, which will go far
ioward making the New York Central
lines capable of handling as large ton
nage as the Pennsylvania, and handle
t as expeditiously.
When William Newman was taken
from the presidency of the New York
Central lines and W. C. Brown put at
'.heir head, through the suggestion of
the late Edward H. Harriman. it was
with the understanding that the new
president would be given a free hand
by the board in bringing the lines up
to the standard of practical perfection
, that pertains on the Union Pacific.
Harriman is said to have stated that
to do this would take at least $100,000,
900. and the directors were Inclined to
balk at first. Arguments of increased
tonnage moved at less cost were used
and finally prevailed.
Directors Balk, Harriman Wins.
Mr. Brown was eager to undertake
the task, provided he was assured a
sufficient amount of money. His plans
were prepared, and they called for an
expenditure of JS5, 000,000 the first
year. Again the board .was Inclined to
balk, but Harriman won it over In his
usual mRSterful fashion and the ex
penditure was authorized.
It was feared by some that the death
of Harriman would cause a change in
the plans, and this apprehension gained
ground when W. K. Vandcrbllt and
William Newman, together with W. C.
Brown, recently made a long trip of
Inspection over the New York Central
Will Equal Pennsylvania Lines.
The sum which it is purposed to ex
pend during 1910 In betterments and
extensions is the greatest, with one
possible exception, that a railroad sys
tem ever spent In one year for the
same purpose. The men who controP
tiie system, however, are apparently
Imbued with the Harriman Idea that. If
the New York Central lines are to re
main a serious rival of the great Penn
sylvania system, this enormous sum
must be expended. The Pennsylvania
tiow speiis physical perfection of
maintenance and perfection of opera
tion. Its ability to handle enormous
tonnage expeditiously is the wonder
and envy of every railroad. Edward H.
Harriman declared that there waa no
reason why the New York Central lines
should not be as good a system.
Rock Ballast, Additional Tracks.
Of the great sum to be expended,
fully 115.000.000 is to be poured into
, the Lake Shore, which for years had
the reputation of being the best rail
road physically In the Vnited States.
Its ballast, however, was sand and
gravel, which has the twin faults of
dust and Instability, and there Is to
be a change to rock ballast. Fully 175
miles of new third and fourth tracks
are to be bulit, 35.000 tons of new
heavy steel rails are to be laid and

Insurgent Leader Warns . Cannon
Whole Middle West Is Insurgent
and Vows to Reduce Power
of the Triumvirate.
CHICAGO, Nov. 6. Defying the trium
virate, composed of Senator Aldrich,
Speaker Cannon and Representative
Payne, to read the insurgents out of the
Republican party. Senator Cummins, of
Iowa, in an address before the Mar
quette Club tonight, made a vigorous
retort to Mr. Cannon's recent attack on
him and defined the position of the In
surgents on the tariff. f v
He particularly heaped ridicule and
sarcasm on the triumvirate, which he
compared to the "three tailors of Dooley
street," for their efforts to define what
is and what is not a Republican. He said
that, if they succeeded In driving out all
who agreed with the insurgents, they
would drive out the majority of Repub
licans from the Ohio-to the Rocky Moun
tains. He declared the purpose of the
insurgents to promote the nomination of
progressives and to . reduce the influ
ence of the leaders "to that point at
which they will feel it necessary to con
sult xat her than command."
Referring to Mr. Cannon's statement
that he practically proposed to Join hands
with V. J. Bryan, Mr. Cummins branded
the assertion as false, declaring it to be
"simply an appeal to blind passion and a
senseless prejudice." He declared the
Democratic party incapable of governing
the country and referred to Mr. Bryan's
He said there was no intention to ac
cept as final the revision of the tariff
against which the "insurgents" voted.
He added, however, that criticism of
the tariff bill was no invitation to any
Republican to forsake his party candi
date. "Our struggle," he declared with em
phasis, "will not be to exclude anybody
from the Republican party, but upon the
principle involved, we ask no quarter
and shall give none."
Heaps Sarcasm on Cannon.
Saying he spoke in the hope that a
better understanding may follow a fair
and candid discussion of the differ
ences of opinion In the Republican
party, Mr. Cummins saidi
A month ago a distinguished son of Illi
nois came to Iowa obviously angry and
therefore in one of his hysterical moods.
He made a speech ostensibly in defense of
the rules of the House of Representatives,
but which was. In fact, an assault upon
those who had opposed the Republican ma
jority In Congress upon the tariff measure.
Not content with burning us at the stake.
he scattered our ashes to the four winds In
order to mak-a sure that we would be lost to
the Republican party forever and ever. He
exalted me to a pre-eminence among the
Insurgents which I do not deserve, but
which I would be proud to occupy, and de
clared, with a vehemence which you who
know him will appreciate, that I had be
come an ally of a certain eloquent gentle
man whose quadrennial business has been
to carry the Democratic banner to over

he made another speech a few days ago
at Elgin, In which he repeated in alt the
colors of his rainbow phraseology the de
nunciation of those who committed the
horrid crime of voting against the tariff
bill, and again consigned them to the
lowest depths of Democratic perdition; and
then, to completely satisfy his lust for
blood, he assigned to Senator La Follette

Warpath After Depredations.
VICTORIA, B. C, Nov. 6. (Special.)
After a five hours' battle, beginning
this morning at daybreak, a force of
60 special police, under Chief Constable
Maitland-Dougall, and embracing vir
tually all male inhabitants of Hazelton,
on the Skeena River, captured the In
dian village of Kispiox and made
prisoners several chiefs of the tribes
who have been inciting the related
nations of the Skeena to war upon the
whites, obstructing railway construc
tion and this week seizing supplies and
stopping provincial road work.
Settlers Fear Trouble.
-Chief Constable Maitland-Dougall makes
no report of casualties to Superintendent
Hussey here, although private telegrams
say firing was practically continuous from
daybreak until noon.
Despite, the fact that the Canadian gov
ernment had ridiculed the suggestion, resi
dents of the North country apprehended
serious trouble all along the Skeena as
soon as Winter sealed the waterway, the
Indians nursing an original and legiti
mate grievance as to game laws and fish

basic supplies until It was fanned into
flame by agitators who have all Summer
been preaching the legal rights of the
Skeena nations to all the lands along that
Lately a conference .with Special Com
missioner Stewart and Indian Superin
tendent Vowell, the former sent from
Ottawa, proved abortive, the extravagant
claim being firmly adhered to by . the
chiefs of the 400 people of the Skeena
nations that their country has never been
won by conquest or alienated from its
aboriginal possessors either by treaty or
sale, and that the whites have therefore
no status of ownership.
Words of Alarm Are TJnheeded.
The Government premptorily dis
missed petitions for re-establishment
of old tribal boundaries, and cancella
tion of all reservations, and Inspector
Green and others in July and August
last predicted an uprising with the ad
vent of Winter unless a strong force of
the Royal Northwest Mounted Police
(Canada's frontier cavalry) were sent in.
This suggestion, too, was ridiculed, al
though many residents sent out their

The prisoner's partner escaped.
Mr. Shepard and Mr. Kelly were walk

on the sidewalk, who appeared to be
quarreling. As the ministers came
abreast the trio the center man, Buren,
yelled 'Help! These men have robbed
me of $500." One of the alleged crooks ran
up Washington street and the other
headed the other way, both ministers
taking after the second fugitive In hoj

and he broke away. Again they gave

to his rescue. The captive is said to have
