White Oaks Disposes Of Its
- Coal Output For
THE NEXT SIX MONTHS
And the Alamogordo Lumber Com-
pany Contracts For Two Million
Feet Of Logs Will Take Two
Years To Get Out..
The coal output at Capltan has so
wonderfully Increased of late and the
Teln la showing: up eo steadily so far
that that point gives greater promise
tban ever before of becoming ooe of
the most important mines of the west.
Tae Wtoite Oaks has been continu-
ously hauling down from eight to
twelve cars a day and today a special
was run down which carried tweoty-
ne cars of coal. This came in at noon
In charge of Conductor Graham and
as the lopg string of cars pulled into
the yards with its glittering length of
lean blask coal it offered a striking
omment&ry on El Paso's prospective
importance as a coal center.
The contract was today signed by
representatives of the G. EL and theE.
P. N. E. whereby the former agrees
to take all the coal that the latter will
furnish them for the next six months.
At the G. H. offices it was said that
this meant all the coal except that fur-
lshed local dealers but the White
Oaks people asserted that they were
bliged to give the G. H. no certain
p a-t of their output but that the con-
tract was made merely to fix the price.
The management is well pleased with
the work of Mr. Thompson the ex-
pert and formerly general superin-
tendent of the Colorado Fuel and Iron
company. He is thoroughly exper-
ienced ia western coal mining. He
somes down tanight to meet Mrs.
Thompson and will make his home at
Each day the White Oaks continues
to 6end up several coal men and these
send on for their families and help to
build up the country..
The Alamogordo Lumber company
Is as closed a contract with Moore & Mo-
Dona'd. a big lumber contracting firm
ef Michigan for 200000000 feet of
They are to go to work at once and
the. logs scaled are to be deliverad on
the lumber company's road. They
will be brought down to the company's
xoills at Alamogordo and sawed up
It will take two years at least to get
out the number of feet contracted for
and for the purposes of the contract
the new firm will bring at once from
Michigan 150 men in addition to the
' anea now at work and even this force
xaay be increased later. These new
sen will in all probability bring tbeir
families and it will mean a Sensible
addition to the population and a con
sequent building up of the country
which is tributary to El Paso.
The lumber company had even now
sore contracts on band for its lumber
tban it can conveniently fill.
It handles all its own lumber over its
own road and delivers it to the White
Oaks at Alamogordo whence it is
rought down to El Paso.
HE CARRIED "STRAW WEN"
Was Detected And Fled Clerk On
Mexican Central Other Inter
esting Bulletins Of the Road.
During the past fifteen days em-
ployee on the Coihuahua division of
the Mexican Central nave been dls
eiplined for the following reasons:
Five conductors nave been discharg
ed for intoxication. This is in line
with the policy laid down in the for-
mer bulletin that men who drink are
sf bo use to this company aad will be
A eon d actor baa been discharged for
staking Improper reports of cars rob-
bed. It must be understood that in
order to properly place the. responsi-
bility for robberies it is necessary to
abtaln full and accurate reports from
all persons ooncerned in b addling cars
and conductors will see that in all
eases where cars are robbed in their
train the fullest details are given in
A conductor has been discharged
for poor hanijlog of a work train.
There seems to be an indifference
among some conductors in handling
work trains and a disposition to shirk
their duties. Conductors must know
that they are always expected to prop-
erly discbarge their duties regardless
of the class of train which they are
handling and no excuse will be tolera-
ted for failure to do so.
It has been necessary to discharge
another conductor for failure to pro-
jierly issue carh fa-e rebates. It
seems there have not yet been enough
examples of tots kind to convince con-
ductors tbst it is the intention of the
aaanagemant to put a stop to this sys-
tem. They are azain reminded that
removals will continue .as long as con-
ductors keep up this practice.
A conductor has bet n discharged for
running by bis orders. Toere wai no
accident in this case but that makes
the offense none tbe lss serious so far
as the act is concerned and conductors
should bear tn mind that when the safe-
ty of lives am property is ntrusted
to them too mSiia care cannot be ex-
arcifec In a proper interpretation and
axeoution of orders.
A conductor ha been given fifteen
days' book suspension for moving lad
by destination. This was en ant of
gross negligence on the part of tbe
conductor and ooe which ordinary ca-e
would have p-evented. Conductors are
autloned to guard carefully agaioet
such errors which ciuse d!ay. to
freight and unnecessary expense to the
A brakeman has been discharged for
being abi-ent from terminal delaying
train about thirty minutes. Train em-
ployes are expected to inform them
selves before going away from termin-
als when they will be required 10 go
out thus avoiding trouble in securing
a crew and delay to trains.
Two agents have been discharged for
failure to make remittances and month
ly reports. Either of theee is a serious
offense. Agents must r err ember they
are under bond and any failure to
properly account for moneys in their
Doseession will result in loss to tbe
bond company as well as logs of their
positions with this company. Reports
from stations must be reoeived prompt-
ly in order to keep up the records of
the general offices and delays-are very
annoying and productive of a ar?e
amount of unnecessary correspondence
acd loss of time.
A clerk has been discharged for im
proper use of passes and carrying
"straw men" on provision roll. This
man has left tbe country to avoid pun
lsbment. It Is needless to cay that
men in positions of trust are expected
to make legitimate use of the powers
git en them and any failure to do so
will be met with prompt and severe
THE NEW CLASSIFICATION.
More About tbe New Western
Freight Rates And Their Ef
In an interview Mr. Houghton told
In the Herald the interesting points
about tbe new western classification
which on the 25sh inst.wlll go into ef-
fect Its operation has already been post-
poned tan days so that shippers might
get ready to meet it and no further
delay is looked for. While the new
classification is ostensibly only a re-ar
rangement of tbe classes of merchan-
dise it actually imposes a considerable
increase in tariff by putting many art-
icles into classes bearing a higher rate
than at present paid.
There are 363 articles on which tbe
classification is changed and every one
of these is an Increase except the item
of locomotives in transit over a road to
which they do not belong. The old
schedule provided that the man riding
in the locomotives to take oare of them
could pay fare on the return trip. Now
tbey will receive passes home.
On such items as soap beds and fur-
niture salt fish axle grease agricul-
tural implements flour feed electric
wires cables and insulators the in-
crease in tariffs ranges from 16 to 45
per cent. Tne effect of some of the
changes is said by railroad men to he
in favor of the local manufacturers in-
creasing the rate on manufactured
goods while leavitig it unchanged on
Some injury may be donetbe vege-
table growing industry of the west by
the changing of winter vegetables in-
cluding potatoes frem the fourth to
the third class. This change will in-
crease freight rates about 30 per cent.
TICKET AGENTS LOSE
Salaries Will Not Be Advanced
But El Paso Agents Are Not
It lis evident from the following
article from the Topeka Journal that
the El Pao 'ticket agents are but
slightly affected by the cut off in com-
missions. Western roads will not make a gen-
eral advance in the salaries of their
ticket agents as a result of tbeir re-
cent decision to abolish passenger
commissions tbe first of next moctb.
Several of tbem however have
practically decided to increase tbe
waes of agents in many of tbe larger
and more Important towns. It is al-
most certain that the roads of the
east south southeast and southwest
too will not advance their agents'
salaries except in individual
"In the larger towns that is
in places having thirty thousand
or more inhabitants the agent may
feel tbe loss of commissions in a
considerable degree but in the smaller
towns the abolition of the fees will not
b9 even so much as an inoonvenience.
Tbe roads have no intention of being
unfair with tbe agents nor have they
any pronounced desire to pay bigger
wages tbaa the conditions warrant. In
the towns ranging from 3000 to 8000
in population the average monthly in
come of commissions to an agent is not
more than $5. In some - instances to
be sure the azeots are luckier. Tbe
payment of the commissions however
has nothing to do with tbe regulation
of salaries the figures being fixed in
all instances tn relation to the men's
worth and the importance of the points
ANOTHER BUNCH GOES THROUGH
Fifteen Cars Of Cattle For Cuba
Coming Up Over tbe Sierra
Col. James Beaumont of the S. P. Is
back again from tbe catileman'a con-
vention at Ft. Worth.
"I wanted to etty over this week.
and go to tbe Texas convention at
Sn Antonio" be said this morning
"but I had to come on back to look
after a shipment we are to make out
from El Paso at once.
"Tbis is a shipment of 15 cars of
cattle coming up over the Sierra Ma-
dre today and they will go to Cuba.
This does nob mark a resumption of
the Cuban trade; but it is a fact tht
good fat cattle still bring good prices
in the Havana market and these are
probably ia fine shape.
"As to the Ft. Worth convention
there were lots of cattlemen thee
and they had a good time but there
wasn't much trading nothing nice
