"Oath," interviewing prominent officials of
the West Kliore HuiWiu Kiver railroad, made
thexe discoveriisi: .
"What do you pay tbse Italianst"
"Ono dollar ami thirty llvo cents a day.
They live very c-loo. The only way 3-011 can
get good work out of thetn is to drivo thoua
bard; consequently, our foremen and con
tractors ktart out at first to learn all the
Italian oaths, and tliat, I think, is about all
the Italian mauy of them know. They swear
all day without interruption, anil thus suc
ceed lu getting moderately good results. The
moment you delay your payments to the
Italians they become fiendish. We have hail
as high as iH),0Oi) workmen at one time on the
road, and discharged 5,000 hands ou the ltt
Said I to one of these gfiitloiniii: "You
have been in England as a railroud man.
How do Amorican railroads compare with
"Why, their road-beds are altogether better
than ours. I think their system of coac-lieR,
too, is better. This plan of putting; the peo
ple in little box-seats, without regard to pri
vacy, and making them ride loner distances
cramped up, is behind our age. In the for
eign comimi-tineiit cars you have at least a
liac-k to your seat clear up and down. We
owe a good doal more to the English system
tlian we concede. For instance, the ticket
loxes used by our general agents aud in all
our offices were invented in England aliout
1S40, and there has been no improvement
pjade on them since."
"JJo you anticipate that there will be any
great change in the stylo of American carsf '
"I think the people in this country can have
whatever they demand of the railroads. If
they want more privacy they can have it.
The competition has now become so great be
tween the railroads, and there are so many
railroads being launched, that they will
hasten to meet the public expectations. On
this road, for instance, we are going to have,
I understand, a system of ushers at the depots,
uniformed, to answer questions, instead of
letting passengers drift aimlessly around, not
Knowing whether trams are to start or what
they are to do."
"How long, do you think, will the Pullman
cars hold their own in this country f
"As long as they continue to make im
provements and meet the rising demands of
travel. Our people are getting more and
more in the habit of wanting private com
partments, where a family can ride and sleep
aud not be disturbed."
My acquaintance then observed: "The
English are far behind us in the checking of
baggage. They seem unusually dull to learn
that simple thing. Brass checks for baggage
are now made in half a dozen places in Amer
ica. They eost about j?0 to $S per pair of
checks with the accompanying strap. Rail
road tickets engraved on steel have become
so cheap that about ten are given for one
rent. The largest bank note company in New
York is running full on railroad Qixlers,
which come all the way from Chicago. 1 ob
serve that New York can deliver your print
ing to you faster than is usual in the west,
where we generally had to wait for a job of
'How many railroad guides pre there'"
"There are three, besides a good many
local or state guides. The most complete
guide in the world is issued by a stock cor
poration in New York, in which many of
the general ticket agents are stockholders.
They went into it to have a record that
should be thorough, and could be referred tp
iu cases of accident or damages. It is a
private concern, pays first rate dividends,
and is handled by the general passenger
agent of the greatest line in this country ,who
resigned his office to edit it. Another guide
published in NeV York has still a fair circu
lation in Hew England. One of the western
guides has perhaps the largest sale."
"What do conductors of railroads do with
the money they collect f"
."They take it to bank at the conclusion of
the round trip and make a deposit. The
treasurer of the company debits them with
money given them to make change, etc I, and
credits them with all that they turn in, and
the country bank where they deposit sends
the balance to the treasurer by draft."
I said to another person intimate with rail
road matters: "Do you anticipate that this
West Shore railroad wCl be sold out like the
"No. I reason from two or three things.
In the first place, the class of men who went
into this road do not want to sell anything,
but need a place for investment and for in
come. It is not easy in these days to get out
of a good security and put your mouey to the
same advantage in loans. In the next place,
Pullman is largely interested in this road,
and his interest in having his cars come to
New York city through the middle of New
York state is greater than his desire to sell.
In the third place, if the road was built to sell
it could have been built at one-half its cost.
Everything in it has been made first class,
The character of the stations, of the rolling
stock, etc., has all been looked into with such
thoroughness that it bespeaks an intention to
run and to hold the road. Stations of the
first class have been contracted for at TJtica,
Syracuse and other large towns, and even
here at Haverstraw the station has cost $25,
000. The locomotives have been built under
the care of the best construction in the
country. Paper wheels of the largest diam
eter ever made are under the ordinary rolling
stock, and make the fore wheels of the loco
motives. Spark consumers and smoke con
sumers are on the engines. The large engines
we use cost $13,000 apiece. The common
coaches cost $7,000 apiece, when plenty could
have been had for $3,000."
"Is this road to be opened to Saratoga this
"We think it is; but Gen. Payne, onr super
intendent, is not a promiser. We are going
to get the Catskill trade, at any rate. Our
policy is going to be liberal with all other
railroads. Instead of playing the hog, we ex
pect to sell half tickets, so that if a passenger
wants to get back by some other road or by
steamer, and take half his journey with us,
we will accommodate him."
"What is the trouble about getting beyond
the Catskill Mountains "
"There is a place there where there is a lot
of blue clay, or blue mud, that will not hold,
and they are having some troubla in getting
a road bed over it. We hope to run to Sara
toga by the 1st of J uly. We expect in a little
while to run from Jersey City to Albany in
three hours. We shall make the run from
New York to Montreal between morning and
evening easily, going over the Deleware &
Hudson Canal cpmpany'B track. We shall
also run through trains from Washington
city to Saratoga between morning and even
ing, thereby accommodating the four laige
cities of the east.
"Do these limited express trains pay?"
"Only as advertisements. The limited from
Chicago to New York is a first-class adver
tisement; but I think it makes no money.
The limited from Washington to New York
is profitable nine mouths in the year, but I
think if you were to take into consideration
the delay to freight trains and way trains to
let that train pass it would be found not so
profitable as it appears."
"Which of the lines of the Pennsyvania
road west of Pittsburg is the most profit
abler "The Fort Wayne "is generally considered
their big road, but the Pan Handle brings
them more first-class passengers. They do
not make the time they ought to make on the
Pan Handle, considering its relative value 0
them. Some of their western lines are not
very profitable. The Little Miami, for in
stance, which they leased at a very high
rental, has been paralleled since, and tho
traffic divided, t The Muskingum Valley '
branch is not o much nod to shea. Tba
tjoiumous and Indianapolis line toward Chi
cago is of slight benefit. The Vandalia line
does very well. The Thiladelphla & Erie
Railroad has not beeu very profitable; yet
you take the aggregate of their business west
or Pittsburg and it is profitable, pays tbe fixed
charges ana leaves a surplus."

"What is the present status of the city of
"In some directions It has grown vigorous,
while in others it is behind the standard of its
population. Its commerce has expanded well,
but it has nas not shown the manufacturing
energy it ought to have done, ami must do to
retain its increase. It wants manufactories
latlly. They do not make anything like tho
variety of product that Philadelphia and
the western cities do. Our principle manu
facture, so to Seak, is canning vegetables,
oysters, etc. This is not enough to give
stability to such a large place. The por
tions Maryland adjacent to Baltimore do not
develop at all as they ought to. aslungton
city has liecome a very important factor
among our farmers, and it takes a very large
riortioii of our ioultry, eggs and garden truck.
It is a more expensive city to spend the
winter in than Baltimore; but the time is
near at hand vben Maryland eople will hes
itate before wintering in Washington or
Baltimore. Baltimore haa not very many
men of large fortunes. Johns Hopkins was
our wealthiest man, and he left his fortune to
found asylums and a university. We want
another kind of rich man in Baltimore to
Kiut tho way to industries which will em
ploy tho people and educate mechanics and
operatives. I regard the city of Baltimore as
in a tolerably precarious position among
large cities unless she develops manufactures.
Thei"e is no comparison, for instance, between
Baltimore and Philadelphia for a variety cf
occujwitioiis, and for the increase of wealth
by mechanical enterprise, stock companies,
etc. Indeed, my friend," said this old sla e
holder, "slavery site on our necks yet. Ncne
know what a curse it was but men who live
in these old slave regions, and were themselves
partakers In the institution. We have good
blood in this state, and very little false chiv
alry. Nevertheless the young men do not
know what to put their hands upon to change
their condition. In many of these old coun
ties the young ladies have to marry what
they find around them. With a soil long ago
worn out for corn and tobacco, still corn, and
tobacco one must plant, because we know no
other form of avocation."
The combination system is gradually de
stroying itself, and eventually we shall have
a return to the stock company system which
formerly prevailed, with a few leading stars
traveling with their own principal support
only, say two or three persons. Formerly
stars traveled with a leading support only of
the opposite sex. This change is being brought
about by two existing conditions: the people
have been surfeited with uneven and oft-repeated
performances of numerous combina
tions which play one piece the season through,
aud repeat it two or three times hi tbe same
town. The companies are so numerous that
the standard has been greatly lowered, and
this the public is quick to resent. The pub
lic of other cities may be beguiled once
or 1 wipe uy the trade-mark or a
well-known metropolitan theater, but
when they are asked to accept as origi
nal companies combinations of the same
name, but numerically titled, they reject the
whole of them as fraudulent. Then, too, man
agers find the star and combination systems
uncertain, and sharing terms uneven ; besides,
they are expensive, Managers are compelled
to recognize the custom of paying for bill
board privileges by admission, and these are
very exacting in the smaller cities. 'Why,
many of these combinations spend more
money on their wail and window printing
than they do on salaries. Managers fre
quently lose on one combination whut they
make on three or four other engagements.
The public evinces a disposition to support
good stock companies in the principal cities,
and in these there is a notable increase in
stock-playing theatres. This past season New
York had three stock companies; next season
it will have seven. These will be Wallack's,
the Star, the Union Square, Madison Square,
Fifth Avenue, the Bijou and Daly's, though
the Bijou will be a musical company, I un
derstand, but still a stock company'. In Bos
ton the Bijou, the Boston and the Museum
will be stock theatres.
Pen Pictures of Talmase.
New York Letter.
His voice is like tbe rasping of ton thousand
files. His manner and gestures are awkward
and ungainly; his modulation is most defec
tive. You can not feel serious and religious
when you hear him, try ever so hard. The
impulse is to laugh, and laugh you do. Yon
feel ashamed of yourself, but as you look
around you find that many smiling faces give
indication that others have been struck just
as you have. It is terribly wicked, but I defy
you to help it. No one will deny that this
famous preacher is original, both in his man
ner of thought and in his verbal expression.
That's what ails him. There is a point be
yond which originality becomes grotesqueness
and is rendered thoroughly unsuitable for the
solemn purposes of the pulpit, and he has
reached it. He is an actor without grace, an
orator without voice. The oddest genius that

Henry Clay and Emancipation.
Ben: Perley Poore.
Henry Clay, in the last year of the last cen
tury, appeared before the people of Lexing
ton, Ky., and, in lofty and manly tones of
ekxjuence, pleaded the cause of emancipation.
His wonderful gifts of oratory, his extraor
dinary powers as a logician, and his rare sa
gacity struck all who heard him with aston
ishment. I have often heard those who had
listened to his speeches of that day declare
that the ears of man had scarcely ever lis
tened to such eloquence as this j'oung man
then exhibited. I have heard both ladies and
gentlemen say, years afterward, that his
voice then rang in their ears, and his appeals
remained in their memories as though they
had beeu heard but the day before, and I
have heard Henry Clay say that, had not the
British abolitionist interfered, awakening
public sentiment at the north, and provoking
the slave owners, tbe southern states would
ha le agreed upon some plan for gradual
Wonderful Cases or VoInntaryfTranee
as practiced 3y the Fakirs of la
The fakirs, of India, according to Napier,
Osborne, Magir, Lawes, Quenouillet, Nikifor
ovitch and many modern witnesses, are able,
by a long course of preparation, diet and re
pose, to bring their bodies into a condition
which enables them to be buried under ground
for an indefinite period. Sir Claude Wade
was present at the court of Rundzgit
Singh, when the fakir mentioned
by the Hon. Capt. Osborne was buried alive
for six weeks in a box placed in a cell three
feet below the floor of the room. To prevent
the chance of deception, a guard, comprising
two companies of soldiers, had been detailed,
and four sentries were furnished, and relieved
every two hours night and day, to guard the
building from intrusion. "On opening it" says
Sir Claude, "we saw a figure inclosed in a
bag of white linen fastened by a string over
the head. The servant then began
pouring warm water over the figure.
The legs and arms of the body were shriveled
and stiff, the face full, the head reclining on
the shoulder like that' of a corpse. I then
called the medical gentleman who was at
tending me to come down and inspect tbe
body, which he did, but could discover no
pulsation in the heart, temples or the arms.
There was, however, a beat about
the region of the brain which no
Other part of the body ex
hibited. Tbe process of resuscitation in
cluded bathing ia hot water, friction, the r-
mow (us ana rrjnon piengets trom the
nostril and ears, the rubbing of tbe eyelid
with ghee, or clarified butter, and, what will
appear most curious, the application of a hot
w beaten cake about an inch thick to the
top of the head. After the cake
hail been applied tbe third time,
the body was violently convulsed, th
nostrils became inflated, the respiration
ensued and the limbs assumed a natural f ull
nem, but pulsation was faintly perceptible.
Tbe tongue was then anointed with ghee, tbe
eye-balls dilated and recovered their natural
color, and the fakir recognized those present
and spoke. Not only had the nostrils and
ears liecn plugged, but the tongue had been
thrust back so as to cloeo the gullet, thus
effectually stopping the orifice against
admission of atmospheric air. This was done
not only to prevent the action of the air upon
the organic tissues, but to guard against the
deposit of the germs of decay, which, in the
case of suspended animation, would cause de
composition as they do on other meat exposed
to the air." If, then, a fakir could suhjend
animation for six weeks, why could not a
Lazarus, a Shunammito boy, or the daughter
of Jairus? complacently remarks the queen
of the" Theosophs, Mme. Blavatosky. The
most wonderful caso is that related by Mrs.
Catharine Crowe in her Nightside of Nuture
of the burial of a fakir in the presence of
Gen. Ventnra, the Meharajah and many of
his Sirdars. Tho political agent at
Loodbiana was present when ho was
disinterred ten months after lie had
been buried. "The cofiin, or box, con
taining the fakir being buried in a vault, the
earth was thrown over it and trod down
after a crop of barley was sown on the 8ot,
and sentries placed to watch it." The Ma
harajah was so skeptical that in spite of these
precautions he had him twice in ten months
dug up and examined, and each time he was
found in exactly the same state as when they
shut him up.
Sjiatlierins Midget for the Kinder
earten. San Francisco Cor. Detroit Free Press.
I feel that it would not be out of place to
state my experience while strolling through
the squalid quarters round about tho "Bar
bary Coast," San Francisco, a few dayssim-e,
when "Peeping Tom" had ocular proof of the
good work the kindergarten toachors are
That portion of tho city is heavy with foul
smells overhead, and black with fouler mud
under foot. Small shojis, frail tenements,
and unkempt and dirty children fairly swarm
in the streets.
A pleasant little lady with beaming face
was boldly entering these places and per
suading the parents to allow the little ones to
come to school.
Following her was a crowd of children
ranging in age from a little midget who
could hardly toddle, to those of 5 or 0 years
of age. Some had hold of her hands and
arms, some clung to her dress, some piloted
her away and the balance were strung out
behind her like a straggling sutler's guard.
I watched her dive in an out; I listened to
her arguments and saw her boldly bear away
her little captives for fully twenty minutes
During the whole time she never provoked
an angry word or a retort,
The children seemed to love her and were
as interested in the recruiting service as her
I went quietly and thoughtfully away,
fully confirmed in my own good opinion of
the brave, quiet work that is going steadily
on to make the next generation fit to endure
and wise to encounter the perils of the future.
That "American Girl."
ILady Wilde has written a long article on
Americans. She says, among other things:
"The English, so say our transatlantic
cousins, speak nicely and pronounce clearly,
but they do not know how to converse; they
have no fluency, are crude and abrupt in ex
pression, and quite infelicitous in smooth
transitions. The girls are dull, diffident and
monotonous; with their pale eyes, pale hair
and sealskin jackets, one might gather a
thousand, or fifty thousand of them together
and they would all be found precisely alike.
The American woman, on the contrary,
disdains this colorless uniformity, revolts
against social usages tliat would limit her
bold originality and assertive self-manifestation.
She is proud, conscious, strong-souled
aud self-reliant. 'I am an American girl,' is
answer enough to any timid old world bigot.
That phrase expi-esses at once dignity, cour
age, self-respect and the independence
of the emancipated republican. The
English girl, in one of the novels, utters
her little harmless platitedus in a soft, low
monotone of broken sentences, " 'How nice,' "
she murmurs, ' 'to have pictures on a rainy
day and it rains so often 1' " and so on, and so
pn, in a limpid, weak, watery way. Always
shy and indistinct with her half utterances,
the stiff conventional attitude never changed,
nor the level murmurs illustrated by gesture
or laughter. But the vigorous, vivacious
American girl never omits a syllable; she
speaks in a loud, clear voice, as if for the re
porters, and as one worth hearing, who de
mands and extorts attention. She accentuates
all she says with grim purpose and resolute
determination to be heard. She is sharp,
smart and terrible at repartee, and may per
haps be sometimes fatiguing to the English
ear with her voluble flow of words. The
English girl never stares nor asks questions
with obtrusive curiosity. She is trained to
seem and be a negation a dormant soul
without volition or an opinion on any sub
ject, felt or expressed. Her American
cousin, however, has an aggressive frank
ness, based chifly upon interrogatories and
bold personalities. Her gaze is clear
and direct; not 'the stony British stare,'
but with the large, truthful eyes
of childhood the eager, inquiring glance of a
candid nature. Truth is in all her words.
This Puritan virtue has indeed remained an
heirloom in the American family. They
have none of the subtle evasion and graceful
mendicities of high life in Europe the deli
cate flatteries, so charming and so false.
These are stamped out at once by the frank,
fearless candor of the American girL Yet
one trembles a little before a candor so un
compromising; for we all shrink from the
downright expression of the actual, and the
glare of an unshadowed truth makes one
nervous. But the Americans have no mercy.
Nature meant them for a nation of interview
ers. They generalize, describe, and label you
after ten minutes' inspection, and send oil
your portrait across the Atlantic, with all
your imperfections on your head, for the
amusement of the crowd, who must be pro
pitiated by a victim, and who applaud and
shout 'Bravo, TorolT' when a 'special' has
been more than usually successful in tossing
the victim from his horns, to be trampled in
the dust of the arena. Yet they are by no
means an ill-natured or cruel people; on the
contrary, they are kind, generous, and charm
ing to the passing stranger who enters within
On the BIsT Bridge,
New York Cor. Inter Ocean.
No other such thorough mixture of rich
and poor has ever come under my eye as that
which is daily made on the Brooklyn bridge.
Everybody must walk across at least once,
and that brings whole broadcloth into con
tact with holes in tweed, while satin flaps
against calico. It is not a bad place to study
the newest fashions in women's dress, though
a severely trying one, for tbe glaring sunlight
renders colors unendurably bright that, when
less illuminated, are only artificially gay. Be
sides this, the slightest artificiality of skin or
hair is pitilessly exposed. Tbe more art
ful promenaders, however, are careful to
dress in sober hues, and to soften their com
plexions, whether natural or painted, with
the screen of a parasoL Here comes in a pos
itive novelty a transparent parasol. The
sticks and frame are ivory, and the covering
is filmy lace, either white or tinted. Through
this new parasol the carrier's head can be dis
tinctly seen, with an indistinctness just suffi
cient to increase whatever beauties it really
tossesses. I am told that this device is going
to be common at the summer resorts.
These who plant trees for landscape effect
should give attention to the grouping of vari
ously eclered foliage inthe trees planted. A
