Tresspassers Continue to Tresspass and Get Killed Notwithstand
ing all the Efforts That President Miller and His Assistants
Can Put Forth.
About four months ago the
president of the Burlington sent a
letter to the governors of the
states through which his line runs
regarding the trespassers w ho are
killed on railways, says the Rail
way Age-Gazette. In the course
of it he said: "If the average for
the last ten years is holding good,
fourteen people were killed yes
terday while trespassing on the
railways, whose deathswereAvhol
ly unnecessary ..and under proper
laws might have been avoided;
fourteen will be killed tomorrow.
And yet, chiefly because these
fourteen people are killed daily
meet their deaths in fourteen dif
ferent places, almost no public
notice is taken nor concern mani
fested." Hut, Mr. Miller said in
this connection: "If a wreck
should take place tomorrow in
which fourteen people should die,
the news of it would be widely
printed over the country."
II was the irony of fate thai in
so short a time a collision ac
cident took place on the Burling
ton itself in which thirteen peo
ple were killed, and that t here en
sued the very result Mr. Miller an
ticipated. The news . about the
wreck at Western Springs has
been printed all over the country,
and the accident is being in
vestigated by the coroner of Cook
county, the Illinois commission
and the interstate commerce com
mission. It has been the subject
of column after column of news
paper comment, and it is thought
that some important recom
mendations by the public author
ities may result.
Meantime, it seems' pertinent to
inquire, what ., are the public
authorities, who' are so diligently
inquiring into the sensationa
Burlington accident and prepar
ing recommendations on the facts
disclosed, doing along the same
line to prevent the deaths of tin
fourteen trespassers who are kill
ed each day on the average on our
railways? Nothing. The tres
passers continue to trespass, they
continue to be killed at the rat
of 5,000 a year, and the public
authorities and the public con
linue to do nothing about them
and apparently to care nothing
about them. They llnd it much
more agreeable to become excite
and active about the fatilities for
which they may hold the railway
and their employes responsible
than about those for which they
themselves are responsible, al
though those for which they
themselves are responsible ar
many times the more numerous.

Large Crowd In Attendance and
Everyone Has a Very
The garden fete, given by the
Melchizedees" at the R. B. Wind
ham home last evening, proved to
be one of the most delightful
entertainments of the season held
n this city. The young ladies had
exerted every eltort to make the
affair a success and are highly
elated over the results.
There were many features last
night of much excellence. To
start with the night was a most
ideal one. The lawn had been
prettily lighted with Chinese lan
terns, electric lights and the like
and the the booths, located at
various places about the lawn,
were very attractively decorated.
To enter the lawn was almost an
approach to fairyalnd, owing to
the handsome design of Hit' sev
eral booths and the artistic ef
fects of their decorations.
About 8:30 a short program was
rendered on the east porch of the
Windham home. Misses Eliza
beth Falter and Marie Douglass
furnished reading and kept the
audience thoroughly at attention
by their finished style and pleas
ing manner. A ladies' quartet,
composed of Misses Kathryn
Windham, llallie Parmele, Fran
ces Weidnian and Lucile (lass,
contributed a charming vocal se-
selection, after which a playelte
entitled "The Old Maids' Tea
Parly," was given. Those taking
part in this playelte were Misses
Elizabeth Falter, Mildred Cum
mins, Lucile Class and Kathryn
Windham. They were typical old
maids and the talkingest ladies
the oldest, old maid favored the
company with a vocal selection.
This was the tlrsl lime she had
ever sung in public, and the way
he sang was very realistic and
amusing. Alter several very
graceful sleps, these talkingest
old maids drank their tea ami ale
This concluded the program and
then the guests were invited lo
visit I he various booths about the
lawn. The booths represented
foreign countries, I he first being
Spain. This hoolh was of a very
pretty design, being done in the
yellow and red colors. The voung
ladies, dressi'd in Spanish' cos
tumes, served delicious fruit
punch and wafers for a nominal
Ireland was represented by a
very prelly booth, erected in the
form of a porch, in Ihe green and
while colors, with the shamrock
decora! ions, and which delighted
the eve. This booth was a very
isl ily gotten up affair and at
tracted much attention. At. this
booth elegant home-made candies
were very much in evidence, and
which sold quite rapidly. The
young ladies in charge were
dressed in green and while.
Pirturesque Holland was also a
booth of novelty, being built in
the shape of a Dutch dyke around
which mounds of grass, foliage
and the Dutch wind-mills had
been arranged. M mature ferry
boats were located at the head of
the dyke, in which the guc.-t placed
a nickel and Hie boat was drawn
to Ihe other end of the dyke and
relumed, bearing a lillle surprise
for each purchaser. The young
ladies in charge of this booth were
appropriately dressed in the Dulch
The last booth and the one rep
resenting Japan, was in the form
of a Japanese tea room, where the
young ladies, dressed in Japanese
style, served iced lea, sandwiches
Away back in a dark, spooky
corner, the Den or Horror was
located, where the guests en
coiinlered many horrible things
and which provoked much fun.
The fiardeii Fele was a grand
success in every way and the
young Indies netted over $10,
which amount will be used for
frescoing the walls of the lecture
room of the Presbyterian church.
The "Melchi.edecs" wish to
thank the public for their liberal
patronage, both in the purchasing
of tickets and at Ihe booths.
