It is Told Where the Money Is.
Of AH Kinds Being Made on the
Northern Pacific Lino Through
outTrain Length Will
A newspaper correspondent In St. Paul
has succeeded In getting from the North
ern Pacific the first statement of the
nature and extent of the great, costly
improvements being made on that prop
erty. Improvements recently completed, un
der process of completion or about to be
begun Involve an outlay of enough mil
lions to build a pretty good lltue ruad,
and these are all undertaken In the Inter
ests of ultimate economy not Immediate
necessity. The Northern Pacific and
equipment is first class, unexcelled by any
In the West, and has never been allowed
to retrograde to any noticeable extent.
Present Improvements are by no means
rendered compulsory because of contin
ued deterioration, as many people unac
quainted with the property suppose. Were
this the case Mr. Hill would not want
to shoulder the burden.
Public attention Is directed towards the
Northern 'Pacific these days more than
towards any other road In the country,
and people desire to know Just what
improvements are being made and why.
In the first place grades are being re
duced to such an extent as to double
the present train length. This grading
Is now In progress on two divisions In
Montana and the authority of the receiv
ers has ben asked for additional work
of a similar character extending over
several other divisions. In fact, the com
pany expects to continue this work
throughout all divisions of the road, the
entire cost thereof being over 31,000,000.
Then the work of making permanent all
'bridges wherever possible, which has
been In progress during the past few
yeans, has been continued, and forty
two lineal miles of lumber and trestle
bridges have been permanently disposed
of by filling and securing a permanent
embankment, with the result of very
greatly decreasing operating expenses.
Chief Engineer McHunry states that
the two principal trestles crossing the
deep ravines In the lines crossing the
Rocky mountain summit will be re
placed during the present year by steel
viaducts of modern design and construc
tion, for which contracts have already
been let. The only remaining lumber
trestles there, three In number, will be
filled In during the ensuing year, thus
reducing greatly danger to life and prop
erty by fire or wrecks. It Is Intended
to eliminate all of the numerous timber
trestles in the Cascade mountains on
both sides of the summit tunnel by per
manent embankments, work on which
has been In progress the past two years.
This work is novel' In character, and Is
described by the chief engineer as fol
lows: "The material Is removed and deposited
In place by the hydraulic Jets and slulc;
lng material through flumeB. Five large
trestles have already been filled by this
means. This process, as adopted by us,
Is entirely new to railroading men. When
we are through we expect to havo as
fine a roadbed as any west of Chicago
and one of the finest In the United
In addition, a number of the more In
portant bridges have been replaced by
permanent structures of steel and mason
ry. Permanent lining has been provided
for all the great tunnels. Instead of
timber, Portland . concrete fills the sides.
while the arch is formod of hard burned
bricks, six rings thick. This work Is very
costly, but has been pushed so vigorously
mac tne present year win see the com
pletion of botli of the Summit tunnels,
piercing the axes of the Rocky moun
tain and Cascade ranges. Work Is now
In progress on minor tunnels and will be
prosecuted steadily until completed. All
the tunnels are being lighted by electric
ity, as ore European tunnels.
The company has constructed some
modern coaling stations, the principal one
being now at Fargo, which is the Ingeni
"'is Invention of Chlof Engineer Mc
Ilenry. This device has attracted a
great deal of attention and favorable
comment from the world of railroading,
ana nas previously been described by this
paper. A coal bunker Is being erected
ot Tacoma to supply the growing demand
for coal at that point.
"All these Improvements." says General
Manager Kendrlck, "will save, we think,
nunareas of thousands of dollars an
nually In maintenance alone, to say noth
ing of Increased safely and Immunity
from losses by delays. The money Is
profitably spent. The Northern Paclflti
lays this year 200 miles of steel." .
"PAP" JENNINGS DEAD.
Disowned by His Family He- is Burled in
the Potter's Field.
Spokane, Sept. 13. Old "Pap" Jennings,
who died In old age and squalor In .a
shack here last night, was at one time a
prominent citizen of Oregon. His son
Charles was a steamboat captain on the
Willamette river. He leaves other chil
dren well connected.
The old man has been on the down
grade of recent years, it Is said, bis fam
ily disowned him. He has eked out a
precarious living here by doing chores for
the French courtesans. It waa said by
Oregon people here that Mrs. Frank
Hodgklns, of Salem, was his daughter.
Acting on this Information the under
taker telegraphed to her asking what
disposition to make of the body. It seems
this was an error, though, for the tele
graph compiny reported back that she
declined to accept the message, saying
It was not meant for her. The old:, man
will be burled In the potter's field.

THE O. A. R. BOYS
Ask Congress to Defray Expenses De
mand Their Dues.
Louisville, Sept. 13.-iAt the G. A. R.
encampment today the matter of interest
was the adoption of a resolution favoring
the placing of flags on every public build
ing and the introduction of a military
drill In the public school curriculum.
The camp further declared Itself against
long parades and marches of encamp
ments in future.
Resolutions were adopted asking con
gress to make an annual appropriation
to defray the expenses of conducting
memorial1 day services in national ceme
teries. The report of the committee on pensions
was similar to that of last year and was
"We demand for our comrades their
Just dues, which the country gladly con
cedes. No niggardly cutting down of
pensions, under the guise of reissues; no
partial and grudging allowances that cut
here and there, will meet with the full
measure of duty that the country owes
to her surviving heroes. Nothing short
of full measure, dealt with' an honest
hand and liberal heart, will meet with
the approbation of the American people."

Buggy and Street Car Coma Together
Near Clatsop Mill.
Yesterday afternoon what might have
boen a very serious accident occurred on .
the curve near Clatsop mill.
Mrs. Smith, wife of Superintendent
Smith of the waterworks, and Miss Uello
Cleveland, were out driving and In go
ing around the curve In the street at the
mill attempted to cross the track- Jusv
then a car coming front the opposite di
rection turned the corner and despite the
efforts made by the motor nian, who shut
off the power and applied the brakes as
soon as he saw the buggy on the track,
the car ran Into the buggy, considerably
damaging it and throwing the occupants
to the ground. The ladles did not hear
the warning bell of the car, because of
the noise of the mill and owing to their
position on the track and the shape of
the street Just at that paint It was Im
possible to get out of the way. The
motor man did everything In his power
ti. avert the disaster and succeeded In
greatly reducing the speed of the car.
Mrs. Smith suffered a slight bruise over
the eye, otherwise no Injuries were re
ceived. Mr. and Mrs. Smith both called
at the Astorlan otltee last night and
stated that they entirely exonerated the
street car company from any blame In
the matter, Mr. Smith Baying that she
considered It very careless In herself at
tempting to drive across the track Just
at that particular place, Instead of con
tinuing on the samo side until after
rounding the curve.
