The Ufa of the railway station agent , at in-

of pleasure. In the performance of bis duties
ho Is compelled to "star" in many a Urania.
About 4 o'clock in the morning ho arises

which rests on n munlcl piceo composed of n
low rtiHty nails driven Into the studding ,
nnd discovers that It Is uoar train

the ticket stand. Ho does not look as

trains running in opposite directions are
scheduled to meet at a given point at the same
moment. The same mav bo sulil where trains
* r duo to moot at a given point nt too same
tliuo whitro roads converge. The wreck on
the Hurlington at Gibson was largely duo to
the former of these facts. It U true that the
engineer on ono nf the trains was found to'
have failed iu the performance of his duties
through his fulluro to apply his air brakes ;
but , if the other tnr.n hud reached thii spur

ono will dispute that they "met"
or that the mooting will provo as dlsasterous
to the company ns it proved unfortunate to
the passengers. Hallroad men , as a rule ,
admit that the practice of making too clone
connections at points on the same line with
trains moving in opposite directions , is a bad
one , and one that sooner or later must result
us did it in the wreck at Gibson. Practical
operators state that nt least ilvo minutes
dilTcrcnca should exist between train arrivals
under such circumstances. Then if a train

"While on the railroad commission the
writer spent weeks , yes months , on experi
mental trains with thu ablest rallroid ex
ports for the very purpose of ascertaining
the practicability of using the automatic )
couplers uud brakes on freight cars , nnd , as
said above , every doubt wus removed and so
admitted by the railroad exports who as n
committee from the National Master Car
Builders' association had these experimental
teats in charge and they ta reported to itiat
body. Hero then Is the point I wish to make
emphatic before the public mlud :
This "absenteeism" in the ownership of
our railroad property as a rule ban the elfect
of mulling these owners Insensible to thodnn-
gors to lifo and limb to which our citizens en
gaged in the railroad service are continually
exposed , and tlioy are made to stand before
the public as heartlessly weighing the terri
ble suffering from loss of the lives and limbs
of railway men , together with the crushing
grief of wives and mothers , against thu few
paltry dollars of outlny it might take to cniiip
their endues ami freight cars with the safety
appliances now admitted to bo not only prac
tical but In the end economical.
No matter how humane thogcnoralonicora
nnd management may bo , or how willing to
put on these lifo nnd limb saving appliances ,
they uro powerless to do so only us the boards
of directors vote to appropriate tlio money
for this npcclil purposo.
All who are any way familiar with the
temper of most hoards of railroad directors
are tr.varo that the great demand from them
upon the managers of their property Is for
"dividends. " They are very slow to listen
to anything from these managing ofllcers that
calls for n considerable present outlay of
funds. Thcao presidents and general man
agers want to bo reinforced when they go
before the boards by a "public sentiment" era
a "thus salth the law. " While some of the
roads are doing something toward applying
these safety devices , our appeal is to boards
of directors and muuugors of all railroads
mid to the legislatures , both state and na
tional , to give this humuue subject their first
The great bomb to bo thrown by Chief
