Conductor J. E. De Kay, Is one ot the
best known railroad men In this vlc
luty. He begun his railroad career as
a brakeman on mall trains No. 1 and
2 on the Delaware, Lackawanna and
Western Road In July, 1SC9.
Tho passenger business of this great
system was then In Its Infancy there
being but one train each way daily
(excepting Sunday), running from
Great Bend to Hampton Junction con
necting with tho Central Railroad of
New Jersey for New York. During
the summer months a train was run
from Scranton to Hampton Junction
and return. The express business of
this road was carried then In one end
of tho baggage car, now about twenty
cars of express are handled each way
dally. Among the old conductors of
this mall train were A. B. Fuller, Sam
Nash, L. Dudlej and L. R. Sears. Ful
ler died many years ago; Nash has
been In business In this city for years.
Dudley Is still living In Blnghamton
and L. R. Sears died December 13 last.
Another old conductor, John Sllsbee, of
this train lies quite 111 at present at his
home In Blnghamton. Sam Dolterer,
son of Davis Dolterer, at one time
superintendent, was then engineer of
the Colonel Scranton, a wood burner,
nnd O. II. Adams, engineer of the Wil
liam E. Dodge, a wood burner, on the
opposite run. Dolterer died at Carbon
dole some years ago and Adams still
living, Is engineer on trains 3 and C,
the fast trains of the Delawnre, Lacka
wanna and Western. It took over
seven hours In those days to run from
Hampton Junction to Great Bend, 130
miles: It now takes train No. 3 ten
hours to run from Hoboken to Buffalo,
40S miles. From tho one train to eight
through trains dally shows tho great
Increase In passenger traffic the past
few years upon this system. In 1S70
this road was then opened to Blngham
ton. Conductor Dudley run the first
passenger train over this road with
De Kay as one of his brakemen, and
Edward Harris, noweud, was bag
gageman. In 1S72 DeKay was promoted to a
conductorshlp on trains and con
tinued until 1S7C when he entered the
Scranton yard as an assistant to Gar
rett Bokart, then promoted to assist
ant superintendent of the main line
and Lackawanna nnd Blooinsburg di
vision. In April, 1S77, he again com
menced running on the road as con
ductor on trains 7 and S, accommoda
tion between Scianton and Blngham
ton. There were not many passenger
trains on the road at the time, conse
quently this train carried many pas
senger. It was a terribly slow train
a3 far as Its time was concerned, but
required lively hustling to get the work
done, So slow In fact that a story Is
told of Conductor DeKay asking an old
man one day near Blnghamton for his
"I gave you my ticket," said the old
"I don't remember getting any ticket
form you," said the conductor.
"No wonder you don't remember get
ting any ticket," growled' the old man.
"When I' left Scranton I was a young
man and your old train has been ho
confounded slow I have grown old
since I boarded It."
On April 3, 1SS2, through trains were
run from Elmlra over the Buffalo di
vision to New York and a passenger
train leaving Scrajiton at C.20 a. in.
was run through to Elmlra and DeKay
was promoted to the position of con
ductor on this train from Blnghamton
to Elmlra. This train was greeted with
gieat rejoicing by the people along the
line as It wns a commencement of the
final opening up of a now trunk line
to Buffalo, and gave many towns on
the south side of tho Susquehanna
river railroad facilities they had never
before enjoyed. On May It, 1SS3, ho
moved to Blnghamton nnd commenced
running on the main line and Morris
and Essex divisions from Blnghamton
to New York where he yet runs. On
September 8, 1893, his wife after a
lingering Illness died ut Pueblo, Colo.,
with consumption. He has a daughter
attending the university at Syracuse.
On some of tho new monster freight
engines built for the Baltimore & Ohio
bv the Pittsburg Locomotive Works the
new Bell Spark Arrestor, invented by
Mr. J. Snowden Bell, has been applied.
The new arrangement consists of a
double perforated deflecting plate, and
the deposition of the netting In a series
of inclines, with no horizontal surface
except a very narrow ono on each side
of the exhaust pipe. It Is said that this
arrangement not only prevents the es
cape of no many llvo sparks, but It pre
serves tho llfo of the netting, and Is,
therefore, more economical and effect
ive than any spark arrestor now In use
on any other road,

When Mnjor McKlnley left the gov

ed 191 pounus; when nominated for
president he still weighed 191 pounds,
and It inuy surprise the many who are
troubled about his physical condlton,
und very unnecessarily, too, that af
tro four munths of the most arduous
sort ot mental nnd physical toll, he
continues to weigh 191 pounds. Tho
president-elect Is n conspicuous ex
ample of the believers in the religion
of cleanliness. In addition to his Meth
odism, Mr. McKlnley considers that a
largu degree of moral righteousness
proceeds from the well-rubbed human
unit. Nobody haw ever seen him emerge
from the dressing room In the morn
ing, without presenting the crisp and
clean appearance of a self-respecting
man, whoso freshly shaven face, care
fully brushed hair, and well-ordered
clothes bespeak his regard for external
At the same tlmo nobody would ever
think of accusing Mr. McKlnley of be
ing In tho leust degree foppish, On tho
contrary, he Is so careful, yet unosten
tatious in his dress, that unless one
stiips to think of It, the matter of ap
parel never once enters the mind. He
always wears a frock coat, except dur
ing tho extremely heated period, und
he Invariably appears In public with
nothing less dignified than a tall hat.
On the day of his nomination, when
tens of thousands of people, suddenly
found themselves tearing to his house
by some common linpuse, It seemed for
a few moments that a stampede toward
the front door was In progress, which
must bo chocked Instantly. To accom
plish this purpose, Major McKlnley left
the house from the rear door, Intending
to show himself on tho front porch,
nnd thus restrain the movement for

"Where's my hnt?" he Inquired us he

There was no time to hunt for hats
and he went to the appointed place,
but It was noted when he reached the
spot he sought he was so mindful of
appearances even amidst nil the tur
moil that he found opportunity to re
turn the soft and unconventional hat
and exchange It for a statesman's hat,
before the speaking began.
Ho has Inherited a wonderful consti

In maintaining a fair state of health

regret of all who have busi

his mantel hns fallen upon the shoul
ders of Mr. Floyd, a man with a feroc
ious black moustache and muscles of
steel, and, who, under a rather severe
exterior, has one of the softest hearts
In the world. Major McKlnley never
drinks wine, and his only stimulants
are coffee and cigars.
Some people think that he smokes too
much, but that Is only a matter of
opinion. He eats sparingly, and his
habits are Indicated by the fact that
on the long and excited night ot the
election all that pasesd his lips were a
cup of coffee and a few crackers. An
old colored aunty presides over the
kitchen of the McKlnley establishment.
She weighs about 200 pounds und her
bosom heaves with pride over the re
sponsibility of her office.
NOT A SOLEMN MAN.
There Is an Inclination on tho part of
the public to suspect that Major Mc
Klnley Is a rather solemn person In
private because he Is serious in public.
Nothing can be farther removed from
the truth. The president-elect never
forgets to be dignified, but a flavor of
quiet humor which Is ever rarer than
wit, constantly pervades the library
when he is in it. lie is a wonderfully
considerate man, too, to those who work
under his. directions. Persons like the
writer, whose duties have taken them
to his library daily for the Inst live or
six months, will all agree that they
have never vet heard a harsh word
from his lips or even seen any manifes

McKlnley, "It wus a great occasion, but
