It h not wily that thejr are Inmte
qawtely jwM, fan the wretetal InmfH
crewey of the y compete tkem to rmr
sue a system whfofc operates grunt
ltjstlc to tnetrartllng pnUto. It i
net In Vmman nature to treat with tile
pasetonnle Impartiality thote who five
"lij" ami those who do not. The
potter inevitably comes to regard the
tlp givers m hie re I patrons ami th )
others a so many unjust awl opprea
site burdens on his .time ami tabor.
The color of the porter has nothing to
do with this. White men would have
precisely the same feeling. Ami the
icHtlt now Is that those people who
travel in the Pullman cars, ami who
think that the high prices they pay for
the privilege should secure them every
attention without additional tribute to
the porter, do not receive what they
have paid for, and are consequently
They have a right to be dissatisfied.
The Pullmans have created a system
which necessarily operates Injustice.
They employ porters in laborious ami
responsible positions at wages which
they know the porters cannot subsist
upon. They know that these men. In
order to keep body and soul together,
niHst either rob thorn or tax the travel
ing public, and they know, further, that
the taxing plan can lead to but one re
mit. It let ids to ns that in this the PuP.
rrans do not treat their patrons fairly.
They can well afford to pay porters tie
sunt wages anil In this way do twofold
F ocd. The porters would then be justly
recompensed for arduous and faithful
service, and the traveling public would
he much wore apt to receive tqual and
impartial attention. Under the present
plan the Pullman profit at the expense
of both their employes ami their pa
trout, and the vicious fruits of the
p'an are steadily multiplying as the
rotters grow more discontented and,
therefore, more inattentive ami uncivil
to those who do not tip them. Indeed,
it Is the common sentiment of traveler
that the Pullman service Is conspieu
ously deteriorating, though few stop to
think that this is not the fault of the
potters themselves, but of the mischiev
ous system maintained by the company.
As we say above, our sympathies are
with the porters, and we hope to see
them win.
The era mi of the day among the news
papers Is for operating lotteries la
one eolHtnn they will sotelmnly assure
yn that lotteries are the most evil and
eenupting agencies known to man, and
in the next they will call attention to
the fact that they are running a little
lottery of their own. Of course It Is a
0d Utile lottery, a strk-tly mora and
best Sclent one, but a lottery all the
same. They have various schemes,
iHt let us take, for example, that one
whleh the esteemed Philadelphia Put

Plain Speech
We believe there is
nothing commends the
assertions ol any house
more than "plain
speech. ' While it may
not be necessary to
make confidants of the
public, it is necessary to
treat the intelligence of
the people with respect.
To be perfectly pla:n,
we have trimmed the
twigs or price in many
departments, because
we wish to employ a
legitimate stimulus at
this a naturally slug
gish season.
We have about ioo
pieces ol Van-Colored
