SANTA FE BALLAST TO RE- ROAD Phones—Dry Goods, 142 Hardware, 224. Groceries, 142 1418-1422 Nineteenth Street SAN FRAN'CISCO, Oct. 2: 1 ,.—A. G. Wells, general manager of the Santa Fe railroad, with headquarters nt Los Angeles, who has been In San Francisco for the last two clays, has completed plans for materially Improving the line between Point Richmond and TYesno. The trade is to be thorough- y ballasted, as It is the only stretch of line on the entire Santa Fe sys- ,em that Is not remarkably smooth. It s so pumby that It is common comment among traveling men lately that If you take an upper berth on that run you stand a good chance of being [(Itched out Into the aisle In a pajamn parachute. Wells came up himself over the bumbs in a special train, but felt the force of the argument and was doubly grieved, It is said, by some one asking him If the train was runnln« over "hog-wallow land." On each side of Stockton, with ballasting materials handy, tho roadbed Is In good condition, but In the tule country the ground has to he frequently resurfaced to preserve smoothness. Ail the way east of AlbtiqiK.'niiie the Santa Fe Is ballasted with crushed rock. For a streth of ;!()" miles In Now Mexico the ballasting Is of ancient volcanic cinders (hit; from the San Francisco mountains, ami it is said to make an Ideal roa<lbeil West of the cinders to the cinder* in tiie bay terminal the ballasting Is nt gravel. The new ballasting now to be hastily hut In hetwoen the bay and Fresno is to hi- of snivel, iinil (I will tal;e three or four months to remake the roadbed. PLAGUE STAMPED OUT IN SAN FRANCISCO. WASHINGTON, Oct. 23j—In view of the Improved conditions In San Francisco, Surgeon General Wyman of the public health and marine hospital service, has instructed his officers to discontinue the disinfection of outgoing vessels. For more than a year all vessels leaving San Francisco have been fumigated for the purpose of killing rats, in order to prevent conveying the plague to other ports. There has been no death from the disease in San Francisco in eight months. Although 5000 rats have been trapped or killed and examined each week, no Infected rat has been found since June 13, except one In July and one in August. The surgeon general has ordered a diminution of the force at work in San Francisco by the discharge of about 100 inspectors and laborers, retaining, however, a sufficient number to continue the work as far as Is deemed necessary. These orders are significant as indicating tho success of the efforts to eradicate the plague, yet the state's warfare against rats must continue for an Indefinite period. ASK FOR A BOND SAYS BRYAN TO LABOR. In tile course of. a speech ynstenlay in WfSt Virginia, Mr. Uryan said: "Yesterday tiie papers announced that the officials of the New York Central railroad had gone out on their car to notify tho employes that they could expect a wage reduction If I was elected. Now if any man attcmps to coerce you I want to suggest a solution. You make him give bond as to how much you are going to get and how long It will last. If they want you to sell your birthright for a mess of pottage, be sure that "you get tho pottage before you give up your birthright." DIRECTORS ELECTED FOR SANTA FE ROAD.
