SiO maser emission has previously been detected in all of these sources; they are well-confirmed, mass-losing, late-type stars having accurate radial velocities derived from SiO observations. For 78 sources, single, unambiguous near-infrared counterparts were found within the errors of the IRAS positions; for the other 8 sources, multiple candidates, candidates with a low confidence level, or candidates overlapped with other stars were found. From the J-, H-, K-band and IRAS 12 and 25µm intensities, we estimated the spectral energy distributions of the sources, and obtained the distances, assuming a constant luminosity. The derived distances of the IRAS/SiO sources are consistent with the current bar model of the Galactic bulge, where the near side of the bar is located in the first quadrant of the galactic longitude. We also reanalyzed the radial velocity shift with distance, and confirmed the presence of streaming motions of stars in the bar-like bulge. File Summary:

Note (1): The difference in the position in right ascension and declination (DX and DY) from the IRAS PSC position is expressed on the plane of the sky; the coordinates of an object are given by RA = RA(IRAS PSC position) + DX("), DE = DE(IRAS PSC position) + DY("), at the epoch of 1950 (the signs of DX and DY are taken oppositely from those of Deguchi et al., 1998PASJ...50..597D).
