A Much Abused Class of Rail
Patience a Requirement of
Some Incidents of a Short Journey
on a Cable Car.
Some of the Annoyances Which the End
Man on a Street Car Has to Put
Up With Each Trip.
It was lucky that Job was bom and
lived at the time he did. If he had
been a production of modern times he
would have been obliged to possess more
patience than he had, celebrated as he
was for that quality, to have preserved
a calm and equable temper under the
various annoyances incident to modern
times and conditions of society.
If Job were living today and wished to
keep up his reputation it would be well
for him to shun certain occupations. For
instance, he would fare badly as a ticket
agent in a railroad office or retailer of
stamps at a city postoffice. Above all
things he should avoid taking employ
ment as conductor of a street-car in a
large city. If any men have a chance
to see the exasperating side of male and
female character they are the con
Human nature is said to be a fascinat
ing study, but viewed from the conduct
or's standpoint it presents phases cal
culated to drive men to insanity or hope
less misanthropy. To verify this state
ment just take a ride any day on one of
the Los Angeles cable cars and notice
the various incidents of the trip, then
mentally step into the conductor's place.
Properly, your study of this subject
should commence with the consideration
of several facts. These men are subject
to a set of rules as inflexible as those
governing the military; their cars must
make schedule time or the whole system
is disarranged; the lines being run for
profit, the comfort and convenience of
the passenger is considered at the ex
pense, sometimes, seemingly at least, of
justice to the conductors "themselves.
This last is not a pleasant thing to be
lieve; perhaps it is not even admitted
by the officers of the road, but it is a
fact, and a little consideration will con
vince the reader that it is a fact.
The public demands a street
car system, complete, swift and
trustworthy, but is not willing
to yield comfort or personal feelings to
obtain it. The company, consequently,
is obliged to yield to those upon whom
it depends for support and profit and the
human machinery suffers in conse
Suppose that the reader, being dis
posed to pursue the line of study sug
gested, has hailed a car and taken his
seat along with several others; the con
ductor marks up the number on the way
bill and starts in to collect the fares.
This man presents a Canadian dime.
''I can't take sir," respectfully and
firmly. indignantly from
the passenger. Then, though the pas
senger ought to be aware of the fact that
Canadian coin is not legal tender in this
country, and that if the conductor re
ceives it he will be obliged to lose it or
to play the dishonest trick of "passing"
it on another passenger, he proceeds to
argue the matter with the conductor,
who is obliged, by law of the company,
to accept insult and profanity from the
passenger and keep his temper. In the
meantime a lady sitting behind the con
ductor, arrives in front of the place
where she wishes to alight, and, without
having manifested any previous inten
tion of doing so, she frantically springs
to her feet and rings the bell, giving it
two pulls to emphasize her desire to
stop. This being the signal to go ahead,
the car continues gaily on its wav
and the lady is finally deposited,
angry and protesting, a block
beyond her destination, and the chances
are five to one that she complains to the
company that the conductor was inat
tentive, for people think it is their sol
emn duty to complain on every possible
occasion—to increase their already
exalted self-importance, probably.
The fares collected, the conductor re
turns to his place on the rear platform,
where there are perhaps two men smok
ing pipes strong enough to run the cable
without outside help, a half-drunken man
whose condition renders his fall from the
car very likely, while such a fall would
procure the conductor's discharge and
the company a damage suit. Perhaps,
also, there is a man who, pretending
sympathy for the conductor and his
hard task, gratifies an aimless and idle
curiosity by an innumerable procession
of questions which the conductor can
not attend to without neglecting his du
ties nor can utterly ignore without an
gering his tormentor and risking a com
plaint of incivility to the company.
There is scarcely a trip during the day
or night in which the conductor does
not encounter one of this class of
More passengers are getting on all the
time, and others getting off. Among
the latter is the passenger who wants
the car to stop on a curve and goes away
mad because he has to take five extra
steps in consequence of the gripman's
failure to violate the rules in so stop
ping. Among the former, nine of ten
attempt to take the car at the wrong
street-crossing, ignorant or forgetful of
the fact that the rules of common sense,
as well as of the company, demand that
a train shall not be stopped directly
across a street, obstructing travel anil
exposed to the possible danger from
runaways or uncontrollable heavy cars
or vehicles on the cross street.
There is also quite frequently a lady who
tenders five pennies, or sometimes even
four, in payment of her fare, declaring
that to be all the money in her posses
sion, and relying on the conductor's
natural gallantry to prevent her being
put off the car. She is careless of the
fact that she is stealing that much from
the conductor —perhaps thinks the com
pany loses it and that makes it all right,
As the end of the line is reached the
passengers get off more frequently, and
the conductor and gripman are kept
busy attending to their wants. If a pas
senger gets off at the corner of the street,
and another passenger lives in the next
house to the corner, he will wait until
the car starts up and arrives in front of
his house before stopping it. If the pas
senger happens to be a lady, this is an
invariable occurrence. At last the end
of the line is reached, the cars are
switched, the conductor adds up the col
umns of his way bill, straightens out the
money matters, deposits bad coins in his
own pocket, substituting good for them,

dusts and turns the seats in his car, looks
around to see if there are any passengers
coming, then signals the gripman to go
ahead. As soon as he does this, a
man who has been strolling leisurely
along without glancing toward the car,
a hundred yards away, gives a frantic
yell and commences to run. He reaches
the car, puffing and blowing, and then
goes for the conductor, not for any par
ticular offense, but somewhat on gen
But time and space forbid considera
tion of more annoyances. They could
be multiplied ad infinitum. It" is said
that a man can't go past an old hat on
the street without at least desiring to
kick it, and a negro philosopher ex
plained it by saying: "It's'cause de
hat aint got no feet ter kick back agin."
The American nation is a nation of
kickers, and the conductors, unfor
tunately, can't "kick back agin," so
they catch more than their share of the
They know how to cure rheumatism in
Pennsylvania! Mr. J. F. Meighan, a
Pittsburg cigar dealer, awoke one
niorning with an attack of rheumatism
in his light arm. Working around the
store during the forenoon made it worse.
By noon the pain was so severe that he
could not raise his hand to his head and
had to carry his arm in a sling. One of his
customers, on learning the facts, went
across the street to E. E. Heck's drug
store, and at his own expense procured
a bottle of Chamberlain's Pain Balm
and persuaded the cigar dealer to try it.
It eased the pain and reduced the swel
ling so that by the next morning he
could use his arm, and by the second
morning was entirely well." This is only
one of the many severe cases of rheuma
tism that have been cured by this valua
ble remedy. Fifty-cent bottles for sale

San Francisco Wants Another Trans

The San Francisco papers are endeav

city in the hope of securing another

to start a subscription list and raise a
half a million of dollars of subsidy. O.
D. Baldwin led off with an offer of (5,000

Eight "Sunset special trains, filled with

en route for New Orleans and New York.
About a week ago the Santa Fe offi
cials sent out a corps of engineers to
survey a railroad line from San Bernar
dino up through Highlands via the
asylum site, then over to East High
lands, thence across the Santa Ana
river to Mentone to connect with the
Redlands branch. This road when
built, will complete the loop and circuit

Union Pacific Movements.
A recent number of the Riverside Press
Our citizens need to keep an eye out
regarding the operations of railroadmen.
It appears certain that the Union Pacific
engineers are deeply impressed with the
route through the Morongo pass. It
will be compelled to take either of two
routes from the neighborhood of Ban
ning, one taking the road into San
Jacinto valley—and thence to San Diego
—from which a road could be run
through Riverside and Chino to Los
Angeles. This would probably be the
shortest and most profitable to build;
but a strong effort will doubtless be
made, and this by parties who effect re
sults by work rather than talk, to get
the Los Angeles division run to the
north and west of us, with the San Diego
line branching at Pomona. This latter
would make a cork-screw-like line, which
would not suit the San Diegans, and
ought not to be considered by men who
are building roads for dividends.
A committee of our citizens should
have this matter in hand to examine
into, in order to present to parties inter
ested the advantages in the way of busi
ness which Riverside valley offers. The
development sure to be made within a
short time in the San Jacinto, Perris
and Chino valleys will make such a line
one of the best located in the State for

company, has returned to the East after
making an extensive tour over the com

with Messrs. Magoun and Baring. Mr.
Rinehart reports the country to be in a
very prosperous condition along the
lines of the road. The road is doing an
excellent business and is in splendid
order. The entire equipment and roll
ing stock ig in constant use, so heavy is
the traffic demand, and the traffic is
steadily increasing with the growing
prosperity of the territory tributary to
the road. Mr. Magoun and other mem
bers of the party are still on the road,
and it is not expected that they will re
turn east for a month yet. Atchison
