It is currently reported that a lead
lng railway corporation will Introduc
a system of accident and death insur
ance for its employes as a substituti
for the pension plan that so many otb
er railway corporations have success
fully adopted. Without comparing tin
efficacy ot either plan as the best pro
vision for permanent and faithful rail
way employe It Is noteworthy tha
both plans contemplate a certain draf
upon the corjoration treasuries as
free-will offering by the stockholders
In several industrial as well as raltwaj
corporations a plan has beeu adopt e
under which the employes contributi
out of their earnings to the mainte
nance of a permanent pension fund ov
an insurance fund. It has been fount
by pxperlece that this plan of creatinj
funds which Khali be controlled by thi
employes themselves Is successful to t
degree. The more recent departure ol
creating pension or insurance funds t
be maintained exclusively out of thi
corporation's surplus earnings has ye
to have its success demonstrated it
practice. Under either system the ul
timate benefits to the employes maj
be the same, but there is a vastly dif
ferent principle Involved. Where rail
way or other corporations provide foi
their faithful employes out of theli
surplus revenues, without taxing thi
latter a more or less meager earning:
they adopt a principle that is not ma
terlally different from that known
economics as profit sharing. They gi
to the. employes the added incenti
to permanent and faithful labor thai
conies from a knowledge that the cr
vices rendered are not measured whol
lj" by the stipends paid. They ais
foster a wholesome belief that corpora
tions under wise and prudent manage
meut are not soulless, and that the in
dividual who create a corporation
wealth are not considered mere cop
in a machine to be displaced withon
runner recompense when worn out
Probably it will be found in prarth
that the most successful method
maintaining pension or Insurant-
funds for corporation employes will bf
one in which the corporation trea.su
and the earnings of employes are Joint
ly taxed. Iu this way there will be
community of Interests created and

In time of war. It was often the only

Sherman's campaign around Atlanta
just before he begun bis famous march
to flie sen. The time of the "Hnlil-the-Fort"
Incident was In the early
days of October. SiU, and on the eve
of the terrible battle of Allatoona Pass,
As usual, newspaper men were at the
front, but the language of the siirnal
service was one thing they could not
understand. A correspondent of the
New York Tribune telegraphed to his
paper: "A signal station bard to the
front is waving merrily Its little flag
n flag that talks -but I do not compre
hend its language." Cen. Sherman
maintained his communication with
the army for a distance of seventeen
miles, over the heads of the rebel
army, nt the time when (Jen, Hood,
the rebel general, had moved his posi
tion smith of Atlanta and placed his
forces between the Union armv and
t'.TintlniiCmga. Tills incident ! referred
to In Sherman's report and In "Nich
ol's Story of the Orcat March." Cen.
Sherman told oue officer of the signal
corps Hint "one dispatch sent by the j
corps was worth more than a million
dollars," and in his letter to the Secre
tary of War, he said: "It whs of great
value to us and to the whole country.

Mr. Walker was with Cen. Sherman
all through the Atlanta campaign, ami
after the capture of Atlanta his corps
was encamped at East Point, near At
lanta, for a rest after the severe and
perilous service on the march from
Chattanooga to Atlanta. On the even
ing of October 3, 1HC4, the signal scrv-
ce first discovered the movements of
the Confederates near Lost Mountain.
Tills was signaled to Cen. Sherman at
Atlanta, who replied to "watch close

going north. The signal service lost
sigiit of the rebel column for little
time, but found It shortly In the obi
hue of works near Big Shanty, a few
miles north of Kennesaw. The dis
tance from Kennesaw to Atlanta was
about twenty-one miles, and fo Alla
toona Pass seventeen miles. In com
municating with Atlanta Mr, Walker
was obliged to slgnnl' for the Chatla
liooclie river and the iamps near by
making It a very difficult matter.
We had great difficulty in reach
ing Allatoona Pass," says Mr. Walker,
"as the Confederates were between us
and were burning the railroad and
other property which had fallen Into
their hands." Allatoona was In Im
minent danger, being only garrisoned
by a brigade and altout to receive the
stack of one of the largest divisions
of (Jen. Hood'r army, that command
ed hy (Jen. French.
Cen. Corse, of the T'ulon armv. nt
Rome, had lieen ordered by signal to
move his division to Allatoonn, but
there was some doubt whether Ihe
order had reached him. "On October
4." siys Mr. Walker, "we signaled the
following: 'Commanding officer, Alla
toona, Kingston and Home; Enemy

Cen. Sherman."' At 8:30 p. 111. the
following signal message was sent;
Commanding officer. Allatoonn: (Jen.
Sherman says bold fast; be Is coming,
ianed, Cen. Vaoderer." which mes
sage was received by Mr. Walker.
The next day dawned with a dense
fog covering Kennesaw mountain.
Cen. Sherman came to the top of the
mountain early, asking for the news
from Allatoona. At 8 a. m. the fog
lifted a little, and the signal service
asked for the news, when the an
swer came: "We bold out; Cen. Corse
is here." At this time the battle was
raging around Allatoona. "We could
bear the roar of the cannon," says
Mr. Walker, "ami with our telescopes
we could see the charging confeder
ates." Allatoona Pass, on which so
much depended, was the place where
(Jen. Shermau " had " atored vast
amounts of rations, ammunition and
clothing. It was now besieged by a
vastly superior force and the signal
service was the only means of com
munlcation between the Union troops.
The fate of Allatoona depended upon
the ability of the corps to dispatch
and receive messages. (Jen. Sherman
and staff and other officers of the
Union army remained on the moun
tain until near evening. "At 3:15 In
