THE GRADE CROSSING AGAIN
It IB to the survival of the grade crossing that the
> pitiful deaths of the Newark schoolgirls must be at
tibutcd
a The Lackawannas Morris and Essex line Is as well
patched by gatemon probably as Is any road running
iifhrough populous suburbs But oven tho most careful
gateman cannot avert an accident of this kind when
1 tho conditions combine to Invite it Given a fast train
tunning down hill on slippery rails and a trolley car
kidding along also on slippery rails across the tracks
lth the brakes powerless to hold the wheels and the
r roment of disaster has arrived The trolley car crashes
1 J ts way through the frail barrier of the gates directly
J i1 yju front of the locomotive and ton young lives pay tho
tJ fjienalty
1 < J The penalty not of some ones immediate carelessness
Hut of the Lackawannas traditional policy of parsimony
by which the road so long delayed the Improvements
f > bat would have made this meeting of train and trolley
i car Impossible The Lackawanna ofllcials point with
f fcrlde to the preparations they are making for an ele
sated trackway through Newark and the Oranges Un
g fortunately for the little victims these Improvements
1
i tardily In response to public pressure are only I
fader way Unfortunately also for the road whose
J long series of disputes with the city authorities regard I
Ifilg division of expense postponed the beginning of the
hack elevation until too late
J < There Is probably no other railroad of consequence In
country that has been run so entirely In the Interests
t 1U stockholders and with so little regard for the
jrelfare of Its passengers and of the public dwelling along
fU line as the Morris and Essex division of the Lacka
ffywanna Until the new management took hold It was so
roEl pendent In the betterments that form a regular annual
item of large expense on other railroads as to excite de
iil lon adopted the block signal system only after
Sthe costly rearend collision on the Hackoneack mead
jsows ten years ago It began the elevation of its tracks
p only at the very last It has run fast and frequent
1 1 trains over the numerous grade crossings of the Oranges
i 3fand preferred the occasional Jury verdict for a podes
i triaD cut down to the payment of a fixed Interest charge
> Jon an an elevated trackway The wonder has been that
J theta have not been more horrors like that at the Clifton
cror < sing
I S The new management may have the Just excuse that
gthe burden of Improvements left It to Inaugurate has
fjffieen too great for Immediate accomplishment rIt Is
rt Lcertainlya pity that Us track elevation has been so long
i i i Delayed
I
i THE VANDERBILT SUBPOENA
J More than passing Interest Is likely to be taken in
the failure of Reginald C Vanderbilt to appear In tile
Criminal Branch of the Supreme Court In obedience to
I f subpoena
Mr Vanderbilt is a young man of very great wealth
living In an environment where the possessor of riches
comes naturally to regard their possession as tanglblo
evidence of power carrying with It Immunity from
1 ordinary legal proceedings It Is a delusion which
grows upon the flattery that feeds It and comes even
tually to assume a reality not its own
b There seem to be some doubts as to whether the
< i young millionaire was properly served with the legal pa
per the etiquette of the subpoena Is subtle and some
times needs a judicial Interpretation But assuming
that It was served In due legal form It Is quite as neces
I cary for Mr Vanderbilt to obey Its summons and appear
i tn court as If he were plain Mr Jones There is no un
certainty about that In default of his presence Mr Je
Ml Some hints at a body attachment and a Grand Jury In
dictment This is the proper course In which the Die
trictAttorney is sure of popular support Any disposi
tion to make a martyr of the rich young man should be
repressed
I
In the eyes of the English law a nobleman of whom
4
the authorities have taken cognizance has no privileges
over a commoner Hero where we have only the arls
Jocracy of wealth we are not always mindful of that
l sound principle of the law
THE CHEERFUL PASSENGER
j The cold snap as it has affected local transportation
has thrown in high relief the consoling cheerfulness of
the passenger and his disposition to make the best of
adverse circumstances
E The unheated car chills him the blownout fuse de
lays him the brokendown truck blocks his car for half
an hour but ho does not lose his temper more than In
exlo yaseo tofttme Inwardly As a rulo he Jollies
bj nelghbor and perhaps helps the crowd out When it
t starts The Good Old Summer Time
w U it tho ozone of the Icy air that tones up his nerves
v or la it that his digestion has Improved so that he en
dues discomfort and drafts on hlll goodnature with a
greater equanimity than formerly
Whatever the cause the Improvement Is there lie
I U patient and longsuffering It is only when he is
r forced to see empty cars go by marked No Passengers
or obliged to change to the car ahead that be shows
symptoms ot revolt
d THE HUNGRY PARK SQUIRREL

WOMAN AND THE HAN SHE LOVES
How She May Make or Mar His Iife
By Helen Oldfield
SINCE the day when Adam made the excuse to Jehovah
The woman whom
thou savest me she tempted me
and I did eat
womann Influence
over man has been a
potent factor In the public and private
history of the world
Cherchez la femme Is theGallic maxim A plasm uoon
petticoats says the old English dramatist
What a volume might be written of the unknown wives ot
treat meal Women who have persistently sacrificed them
selves merging every hope and ambition In the strenuous
effort to further
their husbands careers content to give on
all else until when they ore left behind In the race of life
the fine new friends and parvenu relatives or the aelfmada
man
Deride his homely wife I
And pity him for being tied to such a clod for life
Such women as these stand silently and heroically holi
ng the foot of the ladder etralnlng every nerve to k
beep II
steady that the husband may climb hlgher and higher
Theirs Is faith of the sort which moves mountains and
which accomplishes what It expects by the force of Its be >
lef says Helen Oldfleld In the Chicago Tribune
But let no fond and foolish young creature Imagine tha
her lover Is ni wax In her hands He may yield before min
rings to her lightest whim yet be as adamant thereafter
Indeed the wife is far more likely to adopt the husband
opinions and to walk In his ways than the husband la to fol >
low the lead of his wife unless she Is clever enough to fee j
guile him therein without his suspecting it Marring
makes or mars a man but thero are men whom too Influ
ence and entreaties of the brat and wisest woman who eve
dived would be powerless to move except In the channels at
their own choosing All of us for example can recall a
stances where women have married drunkards trusting
their ability 1o reform them and seen hope faith and coot
age die the death under the fiery breath ot appetite There
are not many more pitiable sights than that of n woman
striving with all her rtreriglh of body and mind to bold upf
the dead weight of a worthless husband In such cue 11
her love and patience be Infinite leaning moreover upon i
the help which Is higher than they eha may reap In dUll serf V
son If she faint not But those who faint not are few 1
None tho less It behooves all women to be careful that r
what measure of Influence they may exert over the men wh
love them Is for good A man goes much faster to hell
when a woman helps him on the road say the oriental
proverb Neither can any one tell how great may be th4
Influence of an apparently little thing Trifles make up UK
turn of human life and there are scale so delicate that
they cannot be used near an open window a breath of S
will turn them
It Is much to n man however fcaia he maYbe to be as to
believe thoroughly In some good woman therefore lot all
women take heed that by no thoughtless act nor hasty went
they blight the saving faith whlcte b even u a gratis j
