For tho first" Vme 'this year, a drag has been working on the West Twelfth Avenue road near the Col- "legei The road has been in bad condition and tile drag will be' welcomed by many people in tho worth end of to nil. Commissioner Corbett said it was a • tough proposition—fixing the road—as dragging was almost useless. The roadbed is clay and gumbo. The drag will smooth it out one day but the ruts appear the next day. Mr. Corbett says there is only one way to put the. road In shape, and thnt it) to build a pike to the College. If a thick base of crushed rock were laid, tho road soon -would become a passab'c highway. >This would be expensive, Mr. Cprbfltt says, and at present, the city cannot afford to construct such a ptke.

Railway Company to issue twenty-five Million dollars' worth of two-year, ~> per cent gold notes, and $IJ!, 487,000 thirty-year mortgage bonds. Tim proceeds, according to the showing made before the commission, are to be used in improvements and betterments along the lines of the Katyi This indicates that the Katy expects lo keep lib promise to improve the road through the Neosho Valley. !

Under a new law enacted by Congress, approved by the President, February 13, 1913, to break the seal of a railway car . containing..interstate shipments of freight, express or baggage or to steal or attempt to steal a'ny- such shipments from a car, depot, depot platform, steamboat or wharf, is a serious offense, punishable by a fine *oC not more than $f)000, or by imprisonment in the penitentiary not longer than ten years, or by both such line and Imprisonment. Persons who knowingly purchase stolen interstate shipment, or who transport such shipments from one state to another, shall be deemed equally guilty with the thief, and punished In the same manner. Cases of this character will be prosecuted in the federal courts. It is expected that the new law will materially aid the authorities in effectually breaking up the organized gangs of freight car thieves which 'operate in various parts of tho country.
