SUHMER TOURS - VIA "BIG FOUR" TO THE HOUNTAINS, LAKES and SEASHORES As the polltlcnJ campaign waxes warmer there is an Increasing demand for passenger ears to carry the politicians from one point to another. Just now the 6'hlo roads are pressed for 'equipment iu that direction, and to ac- coinmoda.te the business requires a good deal of transfer of cars. At one county seat a half dozen will be Tvant- cd, at another three or four, and in some cases several trains as with 'the Pennsylvania -and tho. Pittsburg,- Ft. Wayne it Chicago recently, and passenger men say they have never known a. campaign, when Hie commaud for coaches w;is so varied and numerous as this year. "Where the more prominent political speakers appear larger, crowds are gathered tha.n ever before known, and tlio roads have made such rales that many taki> ;ul- vantago of them. It Is estimated that the Ohio, India.na. and Illinois roads have already carried 350,000 persons who IMIVC been .to some one of the numerous gatherings In the States named. Next to the Ohio, Indiana ami Illinois roads those of New York have profited largely through the political campaign business, n.ud Pennsylvania is not far behind. Next month, passenger men express the opinion, this class of travel will be : oven heavier than for the last twenty days. State and county affairs arc helping to swell the passenger business. whose combined weight' tipped, the beam at thirty-six pounds. He says that he never knew the fish to bite so well. .'JosiaJi.
