cough and lung trouble pulled me
down to 100 pounds in spite of doc

of consumption and that I am alive

me. Now I weigh 187 pounds and

not seem that one ef the most Impor
tant and necessary means of safety
lies in the regulation of the public In
this Indiscriminate use of railroad
premises? Statistics of the interstate
commerce commission show that no
less than 51,033 people were killed
while trespassing on the property of
.railways In this country from 1902 to
1911. The number of railway passen
gers killed during the last 10 years was
4,340. Trespassing on railway proper
ty, almost universal In the United
States, Is a cause of great trouble and
expense to the railways. It Is con
stantly necessary for trainmen to stop
trains to put oft people who are steal
ing rides or to keep from running
down those who are walking on the
tracks. Oftentimes trainmen become

are injured or killed by them. Tres
passers often meddle with switches,
causing wrecks and often great loss of
The much heralded convention of
representatives of the railroad shop
men's unions to form a national fed
eration, scheduled for March 4 at Kan
sas City, will not take place. This was
decided upon at a conference In that
city, at which the International presi
dents of the unions involved endeavor
ed to map out some plan to bring about
better 'understanding between the
various organization. International
President J. A. Franklin of the boiler-
makers said in Kansas City that no
meeting of the systems federations
waa contemplated. "There's nothing
radical in sight," said he. "We have
been going over the entire situation
with a view to bringing about a better
understanding between the unions.
This twill require time aa there are
many matters to be considered." One
of the subjects discussed was the re-1
organization of the shopmen's federa
tions so aa to Include only workmen
who are employed exclusively in the
shops. President W. H. Johnson of
the machinists contended that unless
the system federations were organized
on a different basis they would be cer
tain to fall of their purpose. In fact,
all those present believed that there
was a future for federations composed
strictly of shop trades, but how to
bring this about was the Question.
There are nine trades in the Illinois
System federation and it has been dis
covered that in getting new wage
scales the number made negotiations
too complicated. The boilermakers,
blacksmiths and machinists, with prob
ably the 6heet metal workers and
steamfitters, are the unions likely to
take part In the new plan of organiza
tion. This would leave out the car
men, clerks and other workmen not
employed in the railroad shops. Pres
ident Franklin was emphatic in saying
that radical action was not even considered.

Great strides have been made during
the past two days in clearing the streets
of snow. Yesterday Commissioner R.
R. Reynolds assumed personal direc

getting the gutters cleared so that as
the snow melts it can run off into the
drains and not flood the streets and

Governors of 13 states have been
asked to use their influence to stop
trespassing on railroad property. Pres
ident Miller of the Burlington road has
addressed a letter to the executive in
which he deplored the slaughter of
humans In this way. The bead of
the Hill lines said 14 trespassers are
killed every day by the railroads.
Appeal to the governors Is the start
of a campaign to be Inaugurated by
Hill's representatives tn every state
reached by the lines, to create public
sentiment against tree passing. The
governors addressed are: '
