There is no improvement in the servico of

It is statod that tho Brooklyn Board of Ed.

tho general sentiment that she should bo ro

honorablo record as a teacher, and has ro.
coivod tho unqualified indorsement of

Tho people of Brooklyn should mako an

KtattttUian, bong Ialand, afiks what has been
done by the railroad In the matter of settlement
with relatives and representatives of those who
wero killed by the CtnUworlh dlaaiter.
The average Mice paid for those who were killed
was O.ooo, Hccsrdtng to a recent statement. This
will be used ns b baala for futuro cs'lmates, and It
la a good thing to know at J tut what price a human
Ufa ) held, Tho figures on milch cows snd
domeatlc animals have been settled for
some time, but It has always been a
question more or lens open to diacnsilon who
should establish tho value of a human being. The
Chatsworth horror seems to hae been In this way,
a blessing In dligulse for It establishes a precedent
by which a wife knows to within a few rents what
sum will be refunded to her In caso her
husband rhonld be returneil to her la a dead state
by s railroad company, with tho teric remark that
while hu may havo been poaustcd of some merit,
he Is not available for Us columni.
Itatlroads are alio enabled through this ruling to
know, by a careful calculation, about what a
rlekcty bridge or drunken employee may cost the
company In a year, snd the pasaciige r himself Is
afforded much comfort when ha takes a train by
knowing that he can troll hlmaelf ocr a car
stove till llfo la extinct, and, In esse n Jury holds
that the accident was not due to hit own negli
gence, hla widow will get $2,0 K) In crisp currency,
besides what la left of his own crisp remains.
Kt'dl, I would favor a sliding scale. I would hold
that the widow of a good pro.vlder ought to get'
more by Identifying the body of her husband than
a woman who points out tho roaat p4lk which
marks tbe spot where her hiiabaiid was trying
to hold four seats nnd put his feet on two moro at
the tltno of his death. The man who reluctantly
leaves his home to tako a Journey, and r, ho leaves
tcurs of regret on the lashca of hit little ones when
he goes, ought to be worth moro than the man who
only goes home to get his clothes laundrled.
Hut In talking about the price paid by a railroad
for the death of a pastcmicr, we forget that tho
loss of tho money la not the only thing that haunts
the railway afterwards. Think of tho slecplcas
nights that a railroad roust pass, tossing
on Its restless roadbed as It were, and thlnklngof Its
vlctlmi 1 ;Thcre Is whero It pays the awful pca
alty of Its rash acts. Who would be a wealthy
railroad with sleek, blooded rolling stock and good
cnnnrutloos and strong social tlcj, but with the
blood of Innocent people on Its divi
dends T Those wno aro prone to envy a proipcr
otia trunk line, with a fringe of telegraph poles on
both aides, should remember that It may have a
skeleton In Its waiting-room which robs It of nil
Joy. 1 would rather bo a poor newspaper
man, riding on a clergyman's half-fare
permit, and knowing that In case of
accident my widow could present her second hus
band with a dowry of 12,000, than to bo a sln

How tittle Hlnbborn Uatllneaa Cost at Man
Ninety Ilnr' Liberty.
Tho occasional caller dt clthorof tho city
police-courts finds thero much to ponder
upon happenings which hnvo been dupli
cated so many times that oven the reporters,
over alert and nlivo for anything interesting,
fail to appreciate their oddity.
This morning, in tho middlo of a long line
of persons nt tho Tombs was a bcetlo-browcd
man, forty-fivo yenrs of ago, with a stubblo
of beard all over his face. Ho woro n blouso
nnd overalls nnd enrried on old slouch hat.
His turn came nt length.
" Now, my man, what's the matter with
you and your wife '" nsked Justico Kllbreth,
briskly, scanning tho indictment hurriedly.
" Sho says you havo been beating her, havo
been half drunk for two wcoks and havo not
provided for her and the children. Is
that so If"
The prisoner was sullenly silent and looked
nt tho Justico defiantly from under his big
brows. A woman, whoso hair was unkempt
and whoso shoulders were covered by a faded
and torn green plaid shawl, was being shoved
to tho front by a policeman. Shn finally
reached the tot) step at tho corner of Justice's
throne, and she snid, half Bobbing : " It's
too truo, Your Honor. Ho has dono nothing
but ill for a month. It's tho drink, though.
He's ns good a man as nuy woman could wish
when ho's himself, but I can't earn money
for us nil when ho spends it pr drink. He's
got some money thnt ho got for last week's
three days' work, though."
" How much money havo you f" sternly
demanded Justice Kilbreth.
"Sixty cents," responded tho prisoner,
" I want it, John," chimed in tho wifo, for
which sho got only an ugly scowl from hor
" Will you give it to her ?" nsked tho Justico
nftcr a moment's thought, in a soft but sig
nificant nnd threatening tone.
" No, I won't, nnd that's all there is of it,"
said tho prisoner, testily.
"Threo mouths on the island," said tho
Court, laconically, tossing the papers to tho
Clerk, whilo " John" was hustled to tho cage
and tho wifo found hor way out of court, sob
bing ns if her heart would break.
" If that loafer had shown any symptoms
of repentaneo, nnd had given that CO cents to
his wife, I'd hnvo let him ou with n warning,"
muttered tho JttBtico as ho scanned tho papers
in the next case.
Afterwards ho said: "Wo havo scores of
cases like thnt. If I had told tho wifo in nd
vanco what I was going to do sho would have
gono on her knees to plead for that vaga
CAPT. EOBBINS'S RETIREMENT.
lie Did Not Care to be Fat on Trial In Ills
I.nut Jllonth of Police .Service.
" Why did I ask to bo retired yestorday,
thirty days boforo I became sixty years old ?"
ox-Capt. John M. Bobbins said, repeating a
question asked this morning. " Well, tho
answer is a simplo ono. When a man has
spent thirty-threo years in tho polico servico
and is put in a nolo by a subordmato in an
effort to screen bis own shortcomings it is
time to got out. I don't proposo to go
through the form of a publio trial nt this late
day, and.whilo confident of winning tho caso,
I had rather bo retired than to stand the
worry of trial. I havo only mysolf, wifo and
a grandchild to provido for, nnd tho $1,000 a
year pension will keep us. I must be a
Iiretty poor specimen of a man if I don't
mock out at least $600 more a year."
It is said that whon the application for re
tirement was before tho Board yestorday,
Gen. Fitz John Portor opposed it on -tho
ground that Capt. Bobbins should first be
tried on tho charges of neglect of duty.
President French favored granting the
application, and said with much feeling :
' This man has spent thirty-flvo years of his
lifo in tho polico service, nnd is within a
montli of 1i!b sixtieth year, when under the
law ho must bo rotircd. I hopo tho general
will withdraw his opposition nnd let tho old
man go out of tho department in good order
and in comparative peace."
Then tho application was granted, Gen.
Porter alone voting against it.

Tho conl peddler, proporly so called, is, of
course, nn itinerant, but tho small Btorokcep.
ers who havo a wooden box or bin on the
sidewalk, nnd sell by tho basket or bushel,
are included in tho category.
It is n business which caters to tho wants
of the very poorest people, whoso necessity
corapols them to buy their BuppHes in smnll
quantities nt a time. If tho dealors nro to bo
believed, tho peddlers' lot is a comparatively
easy ono. Ho sells ice and vegetables in tho

erolly a " black diamond." Ho gets his sup.
ply by tho half ton or ton from tho East and
North rivers, whore he is allowed 60 oents
por ton off tho prico to privato cousumors.
Tho peddler gets 2,000 pounds of coal to
tho ton, but ho doos not sell by woight. Ho
uses the beautifully indefinite measure of
quantity known as n " bushel basket."
Curiously enough tho "buBhel bnskot" is M
supposed to hold only half n bushel, but it
never contains its normal quantity. When
tho basket is at its biggest nnd best, it must
bo fillod soventy-fivo times to got away with
a ton of coal, and in most cases it contains
only fifteen or twenty pounds.
Tho usual prico to tho poor pooplo who bny

cents per bushel. At thoso rates tho peddler
reaps a fair harvest. Ho can get coal to-dny H

2,000 pounds, which by basket solos yields
him from 58.25 to $11. A peddler with a fair

Thon tho peddlers complain thnt they aro
not given right weight for their money.
Their tou is mostly only 1,800 pounds nnd
when they complain they nro told thnt if thoy
don't liko it they can lcavo it. Indeed, some
dealers refuse to sell to peddlers at all. They
havo to pay cash for their coal before thoy
leave tho yard, but after enrrying it in bas
kets to tho top floors of high tenement build,
iugs, thoy often havo to givo their customers ,

frequently incur bad debts.
The burning grievance of tho peddlers is,
however, that thoir profits got less and less
with every increase in tho prico made by tho
coal barons. Thoy complain that tho prico ,
is raised at an hour's notice, and they can got)
no moro than 23 cents n bushol, even whet

Thus out of tho ouarrcls between tho
