It is to be built by the Wabash people. Aatihorlty for the statement that the Wabash is going to build a new line out of Toledo is Colonel S. C.' Reynolds, a director of the company. It may mean more than a new line. The Wa'bash has been kept out of the field for Chicago by ao agreement with the Lake Shore, which let the Wabash Into the union depot. Now If the Wabash puts in a new Chicago line, it may be compelled to build a new depot, or go into another. Still another develop ment may be another Detroit line in connection with the Flint & Pere Marquette. The whole matter grew out of the determination of the Wa bash to let its line between Toledo and the Ohio and Indiana State line be sold under the famous Compton judgment. Mr. Reynolds says: "The company has decided not t pay the agreement, but let the Oht division be sold. It has come to th conclusion that it can better afford to build a new line out of Toledo This will make a better connection with the system for less money than it will cost to buy the old line ucde the sale of the court." Some time ago a judgment agains the Wabash railroad for »3,555,00 was taken upon that part or the roa< lying between Toledo and the Indi ana state line. The above telegram was sent out from Toledo yesterday which Is considered to be a bluff 01 the part of the Wabash, while taer may be a possibility of that compan building from Whitehouse to Mont pelier, connecting with the main line with the Chicago division, thus making the shortest time between Toledo and Chicago. KAILROAD NEWS. It is said that the Wabash is contemplating the building or a line from Toledo to Chicago. In the month of October contracts for building 60,000 freight cars of different descriptions were let. Blrt Flook, of Idaville, has secured a position as brakeinan on the Panhandle railroad out of Logansport. James Balcb, carpenter for the "Van" at Terre Haute, was murder- dered by footpads while walking on the street. The Vandalia is said now to be doing the heaviest business in its history, not only on the main line, but also on the Michigan division. The interchange mileage system is still frowued upon by the traveling At Dolan's Opera House Saturday NIftht Sert. The Gay Masqueraders" will be t Dolan's opera house Saturday uight.

THE GOLDEN RULE. WORLD'S FAIR, CHICAGO, 1893 men. They are constantly meeting delays due to the extra work caused ticket agents, Of the 50,667 tons of east/bound freight sent outof Chicago last week, the Panhandle secured 9,799 tons, a larger proportion than any of the other eight lines. Passenger traffic on the western roads is rapidly increasing. Late reports show that recent earnings are far in advance of those of the corresponding period last year. A transportation official who has investigated the matter states that there are more fast trains run on Indiana roads than on the roads of any state in the union, or at least west of New Jersey. The eastern roads out of Chicago are much disappointed over the amount of business they aru securing. It has been decreasing for some time, and if it were not for the amount of westbound business the roads would find themselves la a bad position. President Osslao D. Ashley, of the Wabash railroad, is dangerously ill at his Lome in New York City. He is suffering from a complication of diseases, and it is feared because of his advanced age (sixty-five years) the illness will terminate fatally. An exchange is authority for the following: Beginning one week from Sunday Wabash passenger conductors will run through between Toledo and St. Louis. The distance is 450 miles. At present the runs are from Toledo to Danville, 111., 250 miles, and from Danville to St. Louis, 200 miles." The Pennsylvania company has just issued a dainty monogram of the "Pennsylvania limited." It is unique in that it ia illustrated by reproductions of photographs of actual scenes in a train which is making fifty miles an hour. Every phase of a passenger's life has been caught by a clever photographer, and the result is an interesting camera story of a trip from Chicago to New York. The old accommodation trains on the Wabash read, taken off three years ago, will be restored next Sunday, when a general change of time takes place on that line. These trams formerly ran between Fort Wayne and Lafayette, but under the new arrangement Fort Wayne and Springfield, 111., will be tbeii- terminals. The running time of other passenger ttaini will be •bortened. Indeterminate Sentence Statute Ing County Treasuries. Judges of circuit and criminal courts and prosecutors throughout ttie state report that the new indeterminate sentence law is very materially increasing the cost of the administration of the criminal laws and, necessarily, of the burdens of the courts by increasing the number of trial cases. They say that before the law was enacted a large per cent of the criminals'arrested plead guilty, hoping by this means to secure a lighter sentence than they would if prosecuted before juries, but under the new law, where the judges and juries cannot fix the measure of punishment they almost invariably go to trial, knowing that the duration of their sentence depends upon i.hetr conduct in prison, rather than upon the facts brought out before the court. Wnile the prison officials say the law makes better prisoners the court officials declare that it is adding greatly to the cost of the administration of the criminal law. JOHN McLNTOSH Will Not be Permitted tn Attend the Funeral of His Father. John Mclntosh, the murderer of Frank Pottmeyer, will not be permitted to attend the funeral of his father, the late Joseph D.
