While trainsuieu are of one mind in

agree about the methods of these imli
' itlnals in "doing'' the countrv. In
spite of the strict rule of all railroads
prohibiting tramps, these ptofessional
tr.it elers get over the road somehow or
other with astonishing rapiditt. They
haie been known to go from S.tn
Fr.tneiseo to New Yolk in but a trifle
longer time than it took Air. Mackay
on his record-breaking ttip. It is by
110 means cettaiu that one of these
nomads didn't accompany Mr. Mackay
p.tttoftho way across tho continent
on the fast mail train. Tramps are
partial to mail trains. Thu trucks are
toomier than those of the ordinary
coach or freight car. VImteer doubt
there was about Mr. MaeUai's beat

any doubt that Mr. Tramp beat the

Mime freight utrd, and when ti train

a tramp, but ho isn't; he's a beggar
and a tcudtcTrrtfAs--There are others,
who have lust yot tlcir hand in, trav
eling fronrtowtiTo town, and when a
trainman cateho. them stowed awai in
a bo ear, they whine pileoiisly, and
recount their sufferings, or those of a
silk family miles away, which they are
aiiNious to get to.
These arc no tramps," said a
br.tkenian. There is nothing inter
esting about them, and they are a
nuisance. The professional tramp is a
character, and sometimes you meet
with one so slick" that he deserves to
beat his way. The real tramp makes
no excuse wheii bo is discolored. Nine
times out of ten makes lineal, and as
a good many of them go armed, it is
dangerous to meddle with them. For
if there is a human being who might
be expected to value his life ciieapll it
is a tramp, rather than 11 burglar.
How many times have J had tt tramp

"Probably tramps will hang onto
most anj thing, from the brake-shoo to
the wheel bov," suggested the reporter.
No," said a trainman of tho Atlantic-
& Pacific railroad. "Many people
have erroneous ideas about the habits
of tramps. Personally, I never saw a
tramp on a truck, bitt others s.iy that
they have. Tramps generally pull for
an empty bov, car, if Jhere is one open.
It is cut ions to &eo them search the
yard over, inquire- about the departure
of trains and their destination, and
the stops they make along the way.
Why, last Saturday night, just before
leaving for WinsloW. I went to
search my train for stowawais,
and I found an empty Santa

didn't know one another, and they all

position, lint genciallv there is noth

professional vull stand between two
ars with a foot on one bumper anil
the other foot on the other burnpei.
Of course, this is reckless, for trains
often bleak in two, and tlmvii goes the
tramp and one section goes over him.
Probably more tramps are killed in
this way than any other. Sometimes
1 li.unp is drunk and tumbles oil' from
his perch when the train is going
around a enne."
"Suppose you catch a lot of tramps
aboard after the train is under way?"
"Do you think that wo pitch them
oil? Well, no, for sovcr.il reasons. If
they should get killed we should be
criminally responsible Beside, the
tramp might not bo the one to be
pitched oir. A couple ot burly fellows
will sometimes make it lit el v for a
brakeman, or the whole crew, for that
matter. On a Dclawate and Hudson

al Wilis eatry their pockets full of
stones for ammunition, and tho chances
are that the will stone on after the

tramps, and they often lie in wait tin.
til thu train returns to get revenge.
The worst place to gel the tramps down
on oti is in the mining regions. Old
conductors say that they sometimes
had to call out the police of the mining
companies in order to suppress them.
"Tramps around New Yoikarenot
so dangerous, but they are just as
common. The mails between New
York and Philadelphia are n great run

Pennsylvania and Jersey Central com
panies combined to get rid of them.

them down and arrest every one thev

Col. Siau'.ou, who ma.le the suny
of the Colorado Elver from Grand
Junction, Colorado, to Yum i, Arizona,
ivad a report before tho Aniotiean
Society of Civil Engineers which met
n New York last week. He ay!
"Even inch of the t iv er from Grand
Junction to Yuma is cov vied, and tho
remarkable statement made that the
maximum grade will not exceed 1--
feet to the mile, except for a distatfee
if twenty miles, where il will not ex
ceed 20 feet. 1 -r -
Still another and peihaps more feas
ible grado would not exceed 26 feet "to
the mile. Thu survev was made in thu
interest of the Denver, Colorado Can
on ifc Pacific Hailroad Co., which will,
m nil probabilit, build tlie road from
Grand Hiver to San Diego, the latter
mint being advised by Stanton as the
proper tei minus to such a road.
The mining and agricultural jx.ssi
bilities of the country through which
the road would pass, are portrayed by
thf writer in an impartial manner.
The immense ledges of gold and silver
bearing rock, immense deposits of iron
and copper are sjioken of liriettli, but
enthusiastically. Perhaps the most
interesting report to Prospect or readers
will be that of the placer ground. Of
this he says:
"From Daub Crossing to Lee's
Ferry, a distance of loO miles, tho
gold placer deposits are almost con
tinuous the whole way. In past ages
while the river was cuttiug its way
down through the red saudstouc of
Glen Cainon, there were deposited on
the successive levels of tho stream vast
beds of line and coarse grav el, into
which has settled great quantities of
fine gold dust. From w hence this gold
has come is a question on w hieh there
is a great difference of opinion; this is
of but little importance to thu present
investigation. These beds of placer
gravel are found all along this whole
extent of ICO miles, on tho benches of
the canyons, at various heights, some
being 100 feel and more above thelcvcl
of the water, while the larger amount
of the deposit is from 10 tooOfeet above
low water, w itli very extensive bars in
the bed of tho river, which are over
flow ed during high water.
"From personal examinations the
writer considers thec gold deposits
not only ven extensive but very rich
ami valuable. On account of their sit
uation, so much above tho level of tho
stream, and thu fact that through this
section the river has so little fall, these
baisjcau only be worked by Using moie
mach'mcrv and more extensive plants
than arc usually necessary in such
cae. This is the reason ivhythe.so
bars have not been more extensively
worked up to this time." Prospector.
