with smoke, but the flames were con

were extinguished after the train

and an axe.
^The train was bowling along at a

The whole train force was shortly at
work. The train was 'stopped. Or*

snd not .disturb the President, ,who
had been at work until ^fter 1
o'clock in the preparation of his
speech. Effective work was done In
a few minutes and the fire was soon
stamped and drowned out. The burn
?d spot was in the forward part of
the car, near the gallery. Its further
spread undetected might have re
sulted In the .deaf ruction nf the ?u
tire, car, for at the speed the train
was going the flames were easily
fanned. A watch was maintained on
the car during the reat of the night.'

the President slept peacefully and It
was not until he arose in Des Moines
that he was informed of the fire.

All Brooklyn Turned Out To-day

Itoa, but- thg-agflvaf-^f Prr-Cook on
the steamship Oscar 11 of the Boa n?

any American returning from For

big borough at the wrong end of the

-Tho Peary 1 tew Quilted lu their Igloos,
and refused to come out, but' they
were never missed by the Cook clans,
and their disgruntled howls of sus

soon come, however, when Peary
attempts to snatch the crown of the
king of lliu Mwtt Pulp from the head
of Cook. Then, inched, there will be
ructions, and the Hudson-Fulton cel

battle that will be waged between, the

The report of the State -Corpora
tion Commission shows where oth^r*
towns iu North Carolina have been
?granted ? union passenger -stations,
and the, coat ranges from $76,000
down to 98,000. As yet there hu
been no move made by the Washing
ton people for a union station. It Is
certainly badly needed, and It the
proper -argument was presented to 1
the Commission, The News does not
would be readily granted. Washing
ton has three roads, with the chances
good for another, and there Is no
reason under the sun why these roads
should not all enter one dep.ot.; The
town la large enough, has the suffi
cient number of 7 roads, and all that
remains is just a little energy dis
played on the part of the cozens.
The Corporation Commission has
drily recently orflerad^ one for the
town of New Bern. This was not se
cured by the citizens of that town
Toting dn thetr oars; thtty went to
work, worked together, with the re
sult they came out victorious. Why
can't. Washington adopt ? the same
methods and see i( a union depot can
not be secured. ,
That the Atlantic Coast Line depot
Is a credit fo the city no one will
gainsay; that the Norfolk and South
ern depot is not, no one' will ques
tion. As to where this union station
should be^ placed The News, at this
Juncturej._w.lll. noi* auggest. \Vhat is
_in all things UA4. pertains to prog*
the place will take care of itself for
a short whileat least.
Why do the Washington people al
ways do things in a slack-twisted
sort of a way, why don't they get a
move 011 them and push this* thing to
1 the end? Some say, well, it's no use,
we can't get it. How do they know
until they try? Effort must be made ^
in all things thta pertajns to prog
ment to drift thfs way tt will never
come. At the meeting of the Cham

iilSrJt would be well for that body
to consider this ^nyttter and adofrt
ways 'and means rooking toward Its
