The great railroad men of this country
have come up from the ranks. Hera and
there ara a few who have entered the rail
way business with a university education or
through the avenue of grod poa.tli.nfi, but a

Train Dlepntcliere Snrceed.
The avenue through which the telegraph
operator generally rises to high positions Is
the train dispatcher's office. Conditions In
railway operating ilepertments have
changed considerably In recent years. Pome
roads, the Pennsylvania being a conspicu
ous example, have been employing; In their
operating departments many engineers who
have graduated from the technical rchools.
President Cassntt. himself a graduate of-
the rtrnelaer Polytechnic Institute, has
bee-t the chief promoter of this policy.
There also has been a rapid Increase of
double tracks and cf block signal systems
and other appliances which, by lightening;

numoro'is 'u the land. This If the view
taken by William A. Gardner, who, as vice
president In charge of the operation and
maintenance of the Chicago Jt Northwest
ern, oontrols the handling of mere trains,
perhaps, than any other railroad man In
Chicago. Mr. Gardner himself heaii rail
way work thirty years ago as a teleyrapher
for Uie (JlUcaaro 6 Alton at Lemont, 111.
Telearaebr Is neat School.
"I don't mean to assert," said Mr. Gard
ner, "that men can't be trained for operat
ing officials as well In any other sclixol as
i In that of tho telegraph operator, but I be
lieve that In the future, m In the post, that
is the school from which the greatest num
ber of them will be graduated. Supcrln
tend'.its constantly are on the lookout for
operators who show special alertness, cool
ness, and clearness of head and application
to their dutlos. Such operators, no matter
where they are found, are advanced speed
ily to the train dispatcher's office aa va- :
canclea occur. ' j
"On every division there la a chief dia- '
patcher and six assistants. The assistant
dispatchers work 'tricks' of eight hours.
The chief dispatcher works nearer eighteen
hours than eight. He often has a telegraph !
Instrument in his room, so that he can be j
called day or night. The dispatcher must ,
have Initiative and a Judgment that is not
hasty or Impulsive. He must know how to
handle men, for every operator and every
conductor and engineer la under his orders.
He niubt plan hU campaign and stick to It.
He fights a battle every hour. Every train
represents a regiment of soldiers, und the
dispatcher must move them all so they will
not meet or they will at once plunge into
Mves Aaxlows Life.
"The train dispatcher has more annoy
ances and anxieties every hour thsn any
other person on the road has in three. The '
man who can stand the strain to which he
Is subjected and make no bad mistake gen-
rally has capacity for higher work. Many '
dispatchers are 'busted' and become ner- i
vous wrecks. The business of a railroad is I
co lurmsn transportation, ivo man Is in a
better position to learn how best to furnish
It than the dispatchers, and while changes
In conditions have rendered and are render
ing their work less exacting ant Important
than formerly, their chances of becoming
general officers are probably not being ,
The greatest railroad man In Canada Is
Sir William C. Van Home, chairman of the
board, and formerly president of the Cana
dian Pacific. For his eminent service In
promoting the commercial and Industrial
development of Canada he' waa knighted.
BIr William is a native of Will county. Illi
nois, snd forty-nine years ago began his
railway career as telegraph operator on the
Illinois Central in Chicago. He continued
to be. connected with various American
roads until Isjc. when he went to the
Canadlua Pacific as general manager. His
last position on this side of thy rational
line wis that of general superintendent of
the Chicago, Milwaukee 4 St. Paul.

the operating department on most well or
' ganised roads is through the (Trades of
j train dlspocher, train master, assistant
' superintendent, division superintendent,
! general superintendent, assistant general
managor, general manager and vice presi

things eo,uiJ, the vice president in charge'

of being msuo president in c.ise of a va
cancy occur rlrs In that office. The pro
portion of superintendents end general
managers who have been telcgr.jp'-ers Is
even larger than the proportion of vice
presidents and presidents.
Some of the Salaries Paid.
Telegraph operators are paid on western
railroads from tZ2.!A to $75 per month. Train
dispatchers get around J120, chief train dis
patchers from $1) to J150. The pay of as
sistant superintendents varies from JloO to
tM per month, 'that of division superin
tendents on the big roads from $Z,aC0 to
I4.W0 per year. The general superintendent
of a big system gets ie.000 or upwa.:d, the
general manager gl 2,cX to 115,000. The sal
sties of vice presidents in charge of oper
ation, like those of Cher high railroad
officials, vary wiley, ra-..yinff from Jlo.COO
to three or four times that amount.
The telegrapher's art Is not tho one for
the young tnun to learn who wishes to
make big money from the start and who
will grow Impatient If opportunity seems
slow to ccme. Promotions usually do rot
como fast nt first In the railway operating
department, as the careers of tho great
railway operatives of the country show. Bu
the careers of these men also demonstrate
that for tho young man who la not in un
