"Life on u nljrlit cnr 5s not so ilnl
and inonotoiiuiH n the avor.igo poraoi
would suppose , " wns the reply of i
driver on u Third nvcnuo street car t (
The Star rooortor laat night , who had
invited , conversation by asking the
knight of the lines and brake if he
did not "prefer driving by day. " Tht
car \vns n closed one , nnd na tie ) houi
wis ( juito Into , the man of news was
riding on the front platform , lotli t <
throw away a froshly-lightod cigar ,
"I hayo boon driving of night now foi
over ft vo years , " the driver went on ,
"and in that time I htivo contriver
to BCD about us much lifo in Chatham
street and the Uowory as the tivunigd
driver. Whoa , there ; can't you stand
up , you old bundle of bones ? " ho cried ,
rebuking one of the horaos which lost
its footing and came within an ace ol
slipping down on the paving stones nt
the Pearl atroot crossing "Every
thing ia so damp to-night that the
horsiss can scarcely keep their feet , "
ho continued. "And thia is a pool
team , too. The company always have
their boat stock on the day cars.
When a horao comes on the line fresh
from the country , ho ia full of lira and
pays no attention to the bell. J3y the
time ho has dragged a day-car , com
peting with tho'Elovatod , for a couple
ot yeras and sustained
ho is as still'as an old .man ; then ho ia
turned over to the night runs , when
the running time is lengthened from
ten to thirty minutes , and " "Going
up ? " " .Not this evening ; some other
evening ; good evening. The break
in the conversation was occasioned by
two young girls who were standim ;
alongside of the track , at the en
trance to the Bowery , ns though wait
ing for a car , and the driver chocked
the speed of his car as jio addressed
them. Their slangy .ansVor evidently
nettled him , for ho struck the pit
horse a stinging blow with his whip ,
and muttered something by way of
consolation , that the young women
were not good enough to ride in his
car. "You occasionally carry some
pretty rough passengsrs , do you not I
"Rough passengers'/ / Now you are
shouting The roughs only travel late
at night. In the early evening they
are quiet because they have not bo-
,001110 waked from atalo beer oc 'vil
lainous whisky , but , later in the night ,
when they are three sheets in the
wind , they as nastyaa rattlesnakes.
I carry all these low bummers , 'rope-
in , ' runners and 'heelers' for the
Chatham street and J3owery dives.
This trip is too early for thorn , but
when I leave the city hall on the next
Tun , a score of them will climb oft
board before I got to Grand street.
The majority of these hoodlums live
between Thirty-fifth and Fiftieth
.streets and above Ninetieth street on
the east side. They all know mo , and ,
as they never fad to greet mo when
getting on the car , I can say , without
tho. slightest exhibition of pride , that
1 am on speaking terms with some of
the most notorious
in Now York city. "Do they ever
make trouble on the trip ? " "Not as
a usual thing. They know ino and
understand that I know them and
would give them away to the police if
they ever got on my car the second
time. At times one will come aboard
a little drunker than usual , and pick a
.quarrel with some timid-looking re
spectable passenger. " "What course
do you pursue on such occasions ? "
"Well , it is a good deal like a play , i
rccogni/.o the offender as the heavy
villain , and myself as the avenger. I
stop the car , set up the brake , walk in-
aide and catch him by the throat.
The conductor comes to my assistance ,
and wo railroad the offender out of the
X .car quicker than a tonguoy woman
could say Jack Robinson. I never
warn them of what I am about , for
that might give them a clunce to draw
a knife. I tire thorn out first and lec
ture them after the car starts on.
About once a month one of this cla s ,
who is a stranger on the line , will try
to g6 for a watch or a pocket-book. If
either the conductor or I detect the
thief , we hail a policeman or else give
the rascal to understand that wo are on
the alert. I can always toll when a
job is put up to work a car. One fel
low will get on at a street crossing
and walk up to the upper end of
the car , a second will get on a half-
block further along , and the third
will bo at the next crossing. If moro
than three are travelling together , two
will get on together , say at the second
crossing. If the first man thinks
there will bo any difliculty , or that the
prospect is not worth the risk of detec
tion , ho will leave the car before they
all get on. Once aboard , they gather
about tK drunkonoBt or richest dress
ed passenger , and then if I or the con
ductor decline In interfere , they are
both conductor auu driver for tv time ,
The devices by which passengers maybe
bo robbed are many. A mock quarrel
can bo begun , and in the general sham
battle which OIIHUCS watch chains can
be snapped and their owners will not
r loss until the thieves have
loft the car. . Ono can got on the front
platform and one on the rear and keep
mysoV < and the conductor chatting
while their palls are free to
It was on this score that aomo years
ago placards wore put in each car
urging that assongors should not en
gage the conductor or driver in con-
'versation , and spotters were sent out
with many cars to aeo whether wo
were livim up to the rule which for
bid conversation. Sometimes a thief
will try to rob the conductor , but as a
usual thing the crooks know that the
man who works the alarm monitor haste
to account for every faro registered ,
and so are honorable enough to let
him alono. " "Do many women travel
on the night cars ? " "On this trip ,
jesj on the following trips ? " No. At
this season of the year a great num
ber are coming from Coney Wand and
Kockaway , and they save live cunts by
riding on the surface lino. Next- trip
the waiter-girls from the , concert sa
loons , ana the cooks and servant girls ,
who Imvo boon out for 'a time , '
will climb on at every block. Tlio
- this are piotty
-women on run respec

too much boor. I hate n < lrunkon
man , but I novnr see a drunken
woman without n feeling coino ovoi
mo that I would like to ring her nook.
Intemperance ia growing among
women , too They start out by drink
ing n glans of beer 'before going to bed
of an evening , ami a * they cannot
begin to slantl as mucli liiiuor as n man

beer , and * fosters the dcsiro for it ,
speedily loses all claim to being a lady
A few nights ago a woman cot on who
was drcsfeod in black Bilk. She actually

very drunk , but nut on n haughty ail'
and assumed
A mti.vmnn iiE.vmxo.
She sat in the loft-hand upper cor
ner , and the car was pretty well
crowded. At Hester street an old
hug got on , Shn wns slouchily
dressed , and not quite bo drunk aa the
other woman. Hy thu side of the
nicely-dressed woman Ihoro wns about
four inches of unoccupied space , and
the new-comer attempted to wcdgo
hcraclf into it , Such a look of dis *
gust as she received I never saw bo
foro. Hockoning to the conductor , the
woman with the line clothes managed
to say : "Con duclor , rumovo this
vas ft-bond , ple.isoJ" "You dare
call ino nio , n lady a vagabond , you
drunken thing ! " cried the dilapidated-
looking feninlo , and , before anyone
could interfere , she flow in the
lino-looking woman's fnco und
almost scratched her eyes
out before wo could
interfere. As it was , the assaulted
woman wont into hysterics , had a
touch of the jim-jams , fainted and
converted the car into : i traveling hos

frequently iho Bowery qirls who
travel on the late trips fight. They
always carry a heavy whisky glass in
their pockets , and a few of thorn carry

man girl with a dagger. She belonged
in the Atlantic garden , .and was try
ing to kill a fellow who was making
love to a woman from ono of the
I3owery variety shows. She would
have stabbed him , too , had she not
dropped her dagger. It wns very
warm that night , and the front door
was open , and I , who had boon
quickly stopped in and put my foot on
the kuifo , blocking her game. The
fellow she wanted to stick turned white
as a sheet and hurriedly loft the car
with his serio-comic companion , The
Gorman girl never said a word until
the retreating couple turned into
Prince street , and then she said , ad
dressing mo , in a cool and decidedly
sweet voice : "Oblige mo by removing

taken by surprise that I blubbered out
something , and stopped oll'tho dagger ,
and she thanked mo with her eyes ,
loaned forward , picked up the glitter-
inginstrument , wrapped her silk hand
kerchief about it , and then allowed
handkerchief and all to drop in her
lap. She loft the car at Sixteenth

The custom house officers on the
lookout for smuggling have recently
been closely watching the movements
of certain vessels arriving at this port ,
and at midnight on Wednesday made
a "haul" which to no inconsiderable"
extent repaid them for their extra ac
tivity , The Havana line steamer
the City of Washington an
chorcd oil1 Quarantine , early
on Wednesday evening , to remain
there over night. Special Officers
S , D , Cook and M. J. Harrigan de
termined to closely watch her , and
when darkness sot in they lowed off
toward the vessel in a small boat. For
three or four hours or more they were
to3s < ? d about on the waves , discovering
nothing out of the usual order of
things , but just before midnight their
patient watch was rewarded. The
steamer's stern light was raised and
waved live times in quick succes
sion. Tlio ofllcora pulled to the steam
er. Harrigan handled the oars and
sat with his back to the vessel , while
Cronk forced his slouch hat well down
over his face , and further disguised
himself by tying a largo handkerchief
over the top of his head and down
under his chin , as if to hold his hat on
in the wind. When they reached tlio
vessel a voice from overhead said , in
half suppressed tones , "pull awuy and
como luck in fifteen minutes. " They
followed instructions without a word ,
and wore soon a half mile or more dis
tant. The fifteen minutes soon
elapsed , and then the light was
waved again , this time over the
vessel's side. The small boat again
pulled up beside the steamer. The
voice overhead was hoard again. "All
right ; hero goes , " and down to the
boat fell n bag at the end of a stout
ropo. The rope was loosened and an
other bag followed , then another and
anolhor , till live in all had been cast
down. "That's all , " called out the
voice , and the boat hurled toward
shore , to turn as soon as darkness hid
its track and make way to the hospital
ship. That reached the bags were
opened and the Havana cigars to the
number of 7,000 were discovered , all
nicely packed in pretty boxe * . The
eoizuro was made known yesterday at
the custom house , and an agent of the
steamship line was soon on hand for
particulars , and was not a little sur
prised when ho learned tlio story of
the interesting way in which the
smuggler * on his vessel had over
reached themselves and made delivery
to government ofllcors instead of to
confederates. The cigara have not
been appraised yet , but nn examina
tion proves that many are of extra
brands. The steamer will probably
have to pay a heavy line , there being
no evidence ! as to the identity of thu
persona who throw the cigars over

A City Exposed to Dostructiv
Poor Wntor Supply nnd Wrotoho
Flro Protection.
Xe.v York letter to rhihdo ! | > ! ih Kcctml.
The great lire at Vanderbilt'a horsi
car ntablus on Fourth avenue , aw
which made a ruin f Moroll's ' ulogan
storeago warehouse with its valuabl
contents , has called attention to th
liability of this well-built city to _
great down-town tire and the impossi
bility of checking the flames , In the
great fire of 1835 there was a smal
supply of water and only a volunteer
department ; before the conllagratioi
of 1848 Croton water had boon intro
duccd , but the mains were inadequate
In both cases buildings had to bo
torn down in order to check tlio llames
Many of our citizens imagine Urn
with the increase of Croton supply the
lower portion of the city is eompara
tivoly sufo ; but the fact is
there ia not a building below
Canal street whore thu water rises
higher than the basement. The neu
postoflloo water supply does not rise
higher than this , and yet it is built 01
the most favorably-situated ground it
the lower pait of the city. At thu
terminus of the horao cars , opposite
The llurald building , all the water for
the horses has to be brought from the
Antor , * ho w.itor hydrants not beint ,
available , llenco if there were a lire
in that vicinity the mains would nol
supply enough for a single engine. Ti
1843 thuso maina were wooden four-
inch mains , madu by boring logs ;
now they are only eighteen inches
when they ought to bo four feet ami
a hr.lf. Hero is whore the troubh
lies in the lack of a new aqueduct am
source of supply , which should supplement -
plement the Croton and render thu
How of the stream inexhaustible. In
nearly all down-town stores water if
pumped up to reservoirs on the rooi
or in the top story , and nearly all the
elevators are run by stoant , so thai
the drain upon the Croton is kept up
day and night.
Suppose that a fire breaks out in
any down town building. In point of
fact but a single stream can bo turned
upon it. The conilagration , oven in
an alleged lire-proof building , must
soon gain the mastery unless the
watchman or the first engine on the
ground can put it out while it .still re
quires only a few pails of water poured
on the tlamcB. If thia cannot bo done
it must spread until an entire section
of the most valuable portion of the
city is in flames , and it will not bo
chucked until dynamite is applied by
some lovel-huadud official , and a blocker
or two of vulu.tble buildings has been
laid even with the street. The talk
about lire-proof buildings is all non
sense. Take "Fort Sherman , " for
instance , at the head of Wall street ,
which will perpetuate for a few years
John Sherman's peculiar ideas and
methods in banking. Its massive
walls seem stout enough to withstand
the pressure of a dozen outside confla
grations , but within it is filled
with the most inflammable wood
work , which would speedily curl up
its iron girders , scale oil'its rod sand
stone battlements and leave it a smok
ing ruin. These are facts which are
undeniable , but which noj newspaper
in this city would dare to publish in
the plainness with which they are hero
set down. Seine of those papers have
their local habitation in buildings
which are professedly fire-proof , but
are only iron and atone tinder boxes ;
others tear to distress politicians by a
veritable allusion to the water supply ;
others , again , fear offending the Fire
Department or the financiers who are
erecting ten-story towers of peril. The
Fire Department is all right "tho
linest in the world , " of course but it
is not their fault that the water supply
is utterly insufficient for their nueda
nnd that the public ia kept in blissful
ignorance of the fact. Some day the
thoughtless public of Now York will
learn it to their sorrow and at a cost of
several hundred millions , possibly.
Meanwhile their ignorance is bliss and
saves them some little expense in the
: est of private watchmen.
It must not bo thought that there is
not a fire-proof building in Now York.
1'horo is ono , exactly ono , and no more.
The building in question is the Lennox
Library structure , at Fifth avenue
ind Seventieth street , opposite the
I'ark. It is literally founded on a
rock , being built without a cellar , on
i ledge of solid gneisi und trap. There
yaw no contract work about. Every-
; hing was done by day's work , and the
jricklayors , who were all carefully so-
octed , were allowed only to lay BO
nany bricks'a day. The result of Mr.
Lennox's conscientious care is not
inly ono of the handsomest buildings
n the city ( its outside walls are of line
vhito marble ) , but the only ono which
s absolutely fire-proof. Within its
iccuro walla are already placed a
ihoico collection of statuary and
mintings ( including "Milton Dictating
I'uradise Lost to his Daughtora" ) , and
lie libraries are olacing and catulogu-
ng the finest library in America , 'the
juildinu is bettor worth a vitiit than
my other in or about Central park.
Let us hope that when comuloted it
vill be thrown open to the public at
m hour when its treasures can bo
nado uao of by the general public ,
{ specially our workaday young moil
tnd women. The Astor library and
uost of' the others are closed during
ho only hours in which working poo-
do can visit them. If opened until a
oasonablo hour in the night , they
night possibly escape an accidental
ire which would bo fatal to the valua-
ilo contents of the buildings. As for
ho few libraries that are kept open to
tvening visitors , their available con-
cnts are mainly works of fiction ,
