SCRAPS OF SEWS Relating to the Railroads and Their Employes. The Wabttsh pay car-will reach this city next V* ednesday. The Panhandle bridge Inspection party left for Uoland this afternoon. Freight Conductor Edward Hall, of the Panhandle, is o2 duty on account of Illness. Conductor Van Loon, of the Panhandle, who has been on the sick list for several days, has resumed hia run. General Superintendent Miller and party passed turough the city this afternoon In a special, en route from Chicago to Richmond. Firemen Horn back, Berry, Rau, Rummell and Minneman have been promoted to the position of engineers. William Schaefer, a Panhandle switchman, had the second finger of his right hand pinched this morning in the yards in this city while making a coupling. The Panhandle bridge inspection party, under the direction of the chief engineer of bridges, reached here today, and will Inspect the bridges on the Chicago division. The gross earnings of the Wabash lines since July 1 are $600,000 in excess of those up to the corresponding time of 1896, and November and December promise equally good results. Trainmaster May reports many applications for position as brakeman. He examined ten today and should they pass the examination they will at once be assigned to duty on tne road. The Panhandle had in the local yards today 331 loaded cars, which they were unable to forward owing to a lack of motive power. Officials of the road say this is getting to be an everyday occurrence. The work of cutting down the iteep grade on the Panhandle road at Rush will soon be completed. It is thought by officials that the crew operating the steam shovel will finish their work within the next ten days. This will no doubt be 'glad news to trainmen, as trains have been de- ayed considerably at this point. Much has been said about long runs for locomotives, and ID all parts of the country tbe experiment is being tried. Still superintendents of motive power and master mechanics bave not settled the question as tu whether anything is really gained by the new departure. Although it is but eightejn months since the long runs were introduced, tnere is a wide diversity of opinion as to their utility. The Importa-ice of the judgment against the "rVabash Railroad coin- panyin what Is known as the Cornp- ton suit, has been over estimated, as any purchaser of the line from Toledo to the Indiana state line would secure a property of very small earn- Ing capacity by Itself and with a lu- cal business of nominal value. It is also considered only reasonable that In the event of any one bidding higher than the Wabaah for the seventy- two miles of the road the purchaser would be glad to make arrangements with the Wabash for the use of It rather than permit the Wabash to construct a new line, as It certainly would do. Followed Her Betrayer. Miss Sophia Habiaborst, the niece and unlawful wife of Henry Koopmann, left at 3 o'clock this morning for Minnesota, where she will join her betrayer. ADDITIONAL LOCALS.

They drove the ould-be thieves off and notified the police of the occurrence, The First Hole In the Broadway Pare, nifciit Shows Up Badly. Some expert street makers are of the opinion that a poor quality.of cement was used in the Broadway improvement and that a sand founda- Made Last tion w °uld have proven equally as good as the cement, and many thousand dollars would have been saved to the property owners. In the hole dug in front of Mc- Kdig's pool room on Broadway, the cement seems to have no greater sticking quality than common clay and cne can kick it to pieces with the foot. Golden Wedding.

In all the schemes proposed for so ailed "currency reform" hy the substi- •ntion of bank notes for notes issued by government, one thing is observable —they ail provide that the bank notes aall be guaranteed by the government and redeemed by it, either in the first instance or after failure to redeem them >y the banks. The most modest of these schemes sks only for an amendment of the na- ional bank act by -which the banks hall be permitted to issue notes to the mount of 100 per cent instead of 90 >er cent, as now, of the face value of he government bonds deposited as se- urity for them, but still leaving them guaranteed, first, by the government's bligacion to pay the bonds, and if that dall prove insufficient, owing to a de- line in the market value of the bonds, hen by the direct undertaking of the overnment to pay the notes as provid- d in section 108 of the bank act. Secretary Gage's scheme provides that he banks may issue notes secured by •ovemment bonds to the amount of 60 >er cent of their capital and 25 per ent more secured only by the banks' own assets, and he would "extend the guarantee of payment by the government to all circulating notes of the banks, whether issued against deposited security or against assets." Kbw coraes Mr. John C. Biillitt of Philadelphia and goes a step further than Secretary Gage. He would permit the banks to issue notes to the extent of one and one-third of their capital, depositing as security for them 15 per cent in gold in the treasury and 15 per cent in gold in their own vaults, "and the government should agree to redeem these notes in gold after-default by the bank issuing them." Thns, throughout all the proposed "reform" runs the idea that the currency which is to take the place of that issued directly by the government shall nevertheless be guaranteed by the government and virtually be a government obligation. To effect this reform Mi. Gage proposes to pay the banks 2% per cent per annum upon $200.000.000 <tf Our opening will continue for the season on THURSDAYS, FRIDAYS, SATURDAYS, Mrs. W.
