"The strike bat jut bfgun," taid
President Smalt of the Commercial
Telegraphers' Union. These three la
conic statements adequately describe the
attitude oi the opposing parlies and in
ciilentally give a hint as to their future
action. Although the officials of both
companies. in San Francisco ar subordl
nates and could not of their own volition
take any steps towards the settlement
It Is nut thought likely that any steps
will be taken while the local officials
report they are handling the business
without any unreasonable delay.
The operators on the other hand state
that they will carry on the fight even if
the companie find a man for every key
and they declare they are prepared to
stay out six months if necessary. Their
leadera however say they expect to win
in much less time and President Small
prophesied that "Lightning wouldt soon
strike In an unexpected place," but did
not explain hi remarks.

eastern cities. At the temporary main

Catoline Motor Car For Union Pacific
NEW YORK, July 2.-An extremely
Interesting Innovation In railway pas
senger transportation in this country
will be Inaugurated next month, when,
It is announced, the Union Pacific Rail
road will place in service 12 gasolene
rail' motor ears. The cars are intended
for branch-line traffic, where the fast
and frequent service required cannot be
maintained by ordinary trains except
t a loss.
Th latest type of these cart deve
loped at tl Omaha shop of Hie Union
Pacific make 60 mile an hour with a
200 horse power engine, reaches high
peed within six car lengths, and can
be stopped within 120 feet. With these
advantages the cart can be put on a
much faster schedule than Is possible
with the steam locomotive.
Outwardly the newest of the cars,
wbk'h ere built entirely of steel, resem
ble a turned-over racing yatch. The
forward end tapers sharply, and the
mof and rear are rounded off to reduce
the air residence and avoid the vacuum
produced by a square car. Rounded
window give to the passengers a wide
range of outlook, and increase the nauti
cal appearance of the ear.
In co U weather the cars are to be
heated by hot water from the cylinder
jacket. Tbey ar lighted by acetylene
gas shining through opalescent panels.
For sanitary reasons the floor of the
cars are built to that tbey can be
thoroughly cleaned by fltmhing with
hot water. The familiar ytem of vent
ilation has been replaced by roof venti
lators which exhaust the inside air by
suction, fresh air being taken in from
th oar roof in front. Vibration is re
duced to a minimum by the way in
which the motive power is balanced,
Tli cost of operating the cart varies
from ten to twenty cents a mile, ac
cording to the density of th traffic, .
but the record kept prove beyond doubt
that the rail-motor car will make po
sililt great Improvements in handling
branch line passenger traffic.

In Letter To Friend, Talk On Collier's
WASHINGTON, July 2.-Vice Presi
dent Fairbanks has made no public
reply to the scandalous attack made on
him recently by a sensation-loving
weekly periodical, but he has keenly
felt the attempt to discredit him br
giving space to idle rumors, so wild as to
lie self-discredited. In a private letter
received here Mr. Fairbaanks says:
'The real author of the 't article.
of course is M -. He knows per
fectly well that I was not able to read
the entire manuscript of the book and
knows also perfectly well that nearly
every statement contained in his article
is simple a pure, cold-blooded falsehood.
The thing seems really to be the. work
of a man of diseased mind. No sane
man, even with no regard for truth,
could put together so many falsehoods
without an occasional statement of
truth." " . -
It is well established that neither the
writer of the article in question nor the
periodical itself made the slightest et
temp to verify the story from the Vice
President or any other party mentioned-
in the article. It is generally under
stood the alleged data was supplied by
former confidential employee of Mr.
lairbanks. and was published without
any apparent regard whether the state
ments were true or not. Both the writer
and the publication have quite a local
reputation as being careless as to
whether th facts are straight at lontr
as they get a "sensation" and can ob
tain credit from the Ignorant and
credulous of "exposing" something. The
periodical which published the article
ha arrogated to itself the position of
censor of newspaper morals and is con
stantly lecturing and hectoring newspa
pers (for lack of discrimination in pub
lishing advertisements. It also orofessegl
virtuous indignation over the
sale of space In the news columns and!
of editorial opinion. Yet it has Ume(
and again published attacks on leading!
men and even newspaper based on al-!
leged facts the untruth of which could,
easily have been ascertained by a simple!
inquiry. Incidentally it is one of the
principal backers of an agcrejration of
talent which is now canvassing the coun
try for .funds to furnish the newspapers
with "data" concerning public men and
their performances of their duties at
Washington. This "data" is to be com-
piled by writer for this and another
similarly sensational periodical, the
idea being that by securing the cooper
ation of the daily pre such attack on
publie men a that mad on the Vice
President will seeur wider circulation
and have more influence. The campaign
of vIllltkatioB i to be conducted in the
name of the "People" and those manag
ing the combination will select the vic
