WITH RAILROAD MEN
T1 AFFIC BIER
Mississippi. Senator Grills Capi
tal Men Good Naturedly, But
Admits Liking Them.
In good humored raillery. Senator
John Sharp Williams of Mississippi
grilled the members of the "Washing
ton Traffic Club last night at the an
nual dinner of that organization, at
Which he was the principal speaker.
Senator Williams declared that In spite
of the fact that the American railroads
killed more people than war did and
charged mors for short hauls than for
Jong hauls, In his" opinion- they did
pretty well, and he had a positive lik
ing for the transportation men In gen
eral and the Washington traffic men In
A feature of the dinner was the
"Washlnfton Traffic Club Short Line"
railroad. A train on this road, consist
ing of a Pullman and an observation
car, ran up and down the toastmaster's
table and stopped at the plate of the
speaker next to be called on. A con-ductor-brakeman-porter,
all In one, with
lantern and flag, had charge of the
train. Before the speaking was over
the duties of this official became so ar
duous that he threatened to strike. A
compromise was effected, hdwever, and
the service continued.
Advises High Ideals.
Odell S. Smith, of the Norfolk and
Washington Steamboat Company, was
the first speaker. In answer to the ques
tion. "Why Am I Here?" Mr. Smith
gave several explanations as to his
presence and then drew from beneath
the table a manuscript which he said
contained but 600 pages and which he
believed lie -could read in three hours,
at least. When the members discovered
that the pages were blank a slirh of re
llei was heard all over the room.
Mr. Smith, after the pleasantries were
over, spoke in serious vein, declaiming
I hat the young railroad men of today
would be the railroad leaders of tha
next-decade, and advising them all to
nit . thrlr wagons to stars and work
-with t. highest Ideals possible. Ideals,
1. SH'd. were the foundation of any
injstn. and the man 'with Ideals and
Wear wss bound to succeed of he
worked as the members of the traffic
-oCKtaima.n Campbell of Kansas
def ended vthe railroads from the good
humored attacks of the Senator 'rom
HUs.sslppI, saying that when he
thougbt of the hard times the early
rci roaders had In the West when they
atoned- io) build, and when he remem
bered the improvement they brought to
the West, he could never find It in his
heart "to cuss them."
