TALKING BUSINESS WITH BRIGNOLI.
ntA Is Gained by Spurring; Paasenirers to
Tho Pennsylvania railroad has no
tices placed in prominent positions
in all the stations within a radius of
25 miles of Philadelphia, requesting
passengers to board .and alight from
all trains as expeditiously as possi
ble. The reason for this, it is said,
is that it is very hard under existing
circumstances to maintain the sched
ules to tho exact minute.
Such a notice is a good thing if
people can bo made to heed it. But
it is only a text after all. The real
preaching and driving must bo done
by tlio conductors and brakemen,
and the main work of the superin
tendent will be to keep them up to
the mark. On tho Manhattan Ele
vated the injunction of tho trainmen
to "step lively" has become a by
word, and they doubtless find the
duty of reiterating it thousands of
times very irksome, but it is only hy
this constant spurring at all points
that a great passenger movement
can be accomplished with punctual
ity. General Manager Hain once told
his men (in a circular issued for a
"rush" day) that the country people
who would then visit New York
would not be used to "the energetic
ways prevalent here," and it is a
fact that the thousands of habitual
travelers on the elevated have
learned to move promptly without
being driven and (most of them) with
out overriding their neighbors' rights
The 6ame thing is true, but to a
less degree on the lines of heavy sub
urban travel, but the brakeman on
the ordinary railroad has a harder
task, because his passengers do not
have the practice of those who ride
every day, but even he must remem
ber that a half minute wasted at
each one of 10 stations means five
The methods of driving passengers
successfully cannot be laid down on
paper very well. They must be deli
cate, for folks hate to lo "bossed"' by
trainmen, but they must be constant
and persistent until people do not
need to lie ' "bossed", "hen we speak
of "driving," of course we mean
driving by tho inductive methtd, so
to speak, and one of the Test things
a brakeman can do to induce passen
gers to promptly prepare to disetn
bark without coercion is to announce
the station distinctly twice and al
ways a minute or more before the
We judge that there are still some
2,000 division superintendents who
do not keep their men up to a proper
standard in this simple matter of dis
tinct enunciation. Surely they must
have learned by this time that this
widespread annoyance is not abol
ished simply by lieing shown up in
the funny columns of the newspa
pers. But, after all, tho most effectual
clement in getting suburban trains
over the road promptly on a hard
time table is a good conductor. He
needs no posted notices to passen
gers nor any professor of elocution
for bis brakemen. His quick eye
and brisk movements and pervading
energy soon impel every one who
often uses his train to "step lively."

Cow an Astute Manager Secured a Few
Minutes For Making a Contract.
When James Morrissey was mana
ger of the Emma Abbott Opera com
pany, he made overtures to Brignoli,
going to the Everett House to see
him about the engagement. He was
one of the hardest men in the world
to make a contract with. Ho would
insist on talking so much and object
ing so much that the manager could
not say a word. Morrissey let him
talk for 15 minutes, then expostu
lated. "My dear Brig.," lie said, "wo
never can understand each other if
you will not listen to what I have to
say. We cannot come to terms un
less you hear me."
Brignoli then launched into an
other long series of objections.
"My dear Brig, "expostulated Mor
rissey again, "when are you going
to let me talk ? Go ahead and finish
what you have to say and then give
me a chance."
So matters drifted along for tho
entire afternoon, and they were no
nearer an agreement than when
they began. Finally Morrissey said :
"Brig, I'll give you 15 minutes
more then I want to have five min
utes to myself. We cannot do any
thing this way. I will not interrupt
you, and you must promise not to in
terrupt me. Is it a trade?"
Brignoli at last consented to give
Mornssey a chance "but only three
minutes; five minutes were too
They took out their watches, and
Brignoli talked on for his full time.
Then Morrissey stopped him.
"Now, remember your agreement,
Brig," he said. "You must not in
The tenor walked the floor fast
and furiously as Morrissey talked,
never hearing a word that was said,
ho was so vexed at being kept silent.
A dozen times he attempted to inter
rupt, but Morrissey called his atten
tion to the agreement, and he was
forced to desist. Two minutes of
Morrissey 's time were wasted in
checking his interruptions, but in the
one that remained the manager suc
ceeded in bi-ingiiig Brignoli to terms.
