The drcai Question thul woe KMsi fcy
the JIVomnnt Nntloastl Council
There are both tailors and dressmakers In
this city who are already laboring over the
question that WM raised by the Womans Na
tional Council In Washington last week when
It formally announced Its desire for the Inten
tion of some new kind of business dress for
business women Persons of the mOlt stu
dious mind the most arilstlo taste and tbe
Inraest knowledge have begun to give thought
to the subject and It Is certainly worth their
while to do to The man or woman who gets
up an acceptable and successful design will
surely win fortune I a patent can be secured
for the design
In these times and In this country there Is I a
prodigious army of ° business women or
women who earn their livelihood In com
mercial and Industrial pursuits In clerking
telegraphy typewriting and many trades
The size of this army Is conntanllv enlarging
and Its field of action la steadily extending
Many of Its memberadlsllke the
11 memberldlllke preient con
rentlonal style of feminine dress It is cum
bersome and pretentious it Is inconvenient
for women In many lines of business u Is
l costly Tnere Is no end to Its new fashions
I la not the thing that ought to b worn in
active lire by women of common sfUe and
practical wall
Thus the reformers argue
hut the main iniestlon nt Interest for the
theorizing tailors end dressmakers who have
been stltred to thought by tile Woman Nn
tlonnl Council refeis to the kind of biiinea
costume that would be acceptable to bUR 011
womeu IK neefnarv flint the garb now In
vogue should be changed from baits tr bon
net or cain It be modllted In wars that will be
satisfactory to those concerned Y Theie ate
advocates of a radical change nnd thny main
Inln
tain that nothing less thnn that can meet the
demands of the times hu the reporter hiss
not eerlnfned that any of them has yet got
up a fashIon plate Illustrating the character Int
the new business garb and It Is probable tint
even buMneee women would bo apt to JMinh nt
MICU a plate The more conservative
tblnkeiB who hare taken up the subject
maintain that the desired reform can
lie brought about by making certain modifica
cerfln 1011
toM In the existing costume whle retaining
ltd fundamental features They say that some
eOle
of the allcle8 of feminine wear should bo din
wonI Rlould
canlnd while others could bo judiciously slm
S lifted The liloouier dress thnt Mrs
looiner one tried to Introduce never mot
with any favor bit I may have contnlnfil 1 sng
cestlnnn that wnnld be Hrrvlceahle to the le
formort of his time The now bndlneRH rai
ment must be pbin rot protU ami the stuff of
which II Is madomuat be choap yet tine and
durable The fact that women era lond of
WOnfn
I right colors unit like to Increase their attrao
ton by Ulaulaylnc them must noor be lost
81rlt of
Ills regietted that the Womans National
Council neglected to appoint n committee on
business costume to which tailors and dress
makers could submit their designs or by which
stiBgestl ns could bn made I a committee
of that kind ponsed of lull power to act In the
premises had > been appointed several iiues
tlnpp o Interest might have been ettted dun
faa the present your In tbe anence of such a
committee It will be Impossible to get tho
Councils omelet endorsement or xnr design
dlllln
till Its next National Contention Meanwhile
all dress reform ne and students of lemlnlno
oostinne cab profitably continue to ponder the
Questions at issue

Coroner Levy resumed his Inquiry Into the
recent railroad collision In the Fourth avenue
I tunnel yesterday Mr John D CrImmins Is
laid up with a severe cold and his chair In the
jury box was vacant He sent a note to the
Coroner tslllnc him that he would be out to
day and that he would read the testimony
over and not delay the proceedings i
The fact was established that the fire which
destroyed tho wrecked cars and presumably
hastened the death of some of the victims was
caused by the deadly oar stove Daniel Sweeny
foreman of the car cleanerswho was a passen
ger In I the same car an Mis Bnppel and the only
one to escape alive on thnt fatal morning was
put on the Band to help prove this Sweeny
testified thnt he wan In the second car from
the rear of the shop train The car belonged
to the New Haven road be understood There
was a heater In the north corner of the car
The shook of the collision dazed him and
when he recovered the car was lull of smoke
and steam ana burning coal were scattered
about tie Moor There were coals right under
his feet He groped his aJ to a window
knowing that both ends nf the would

Where are you

he could not release her himself he oinwlod

Then the Coroner called Conductor Wm 1
Drumntoti who brought In the owl train
tl
from New Haven nn tho morning of the ac
cident to prove that the two cars which woro
burned and In which the ear cleaners lost
their lives were a part of his train He testi

lied that hn had conch 99 nnd ttmoker 178 In

cnlconxtructlonnnd In hits opinion the e was no
ground for tho belief that the system could lie

bloiK with the Now Haven passenger train Ho
wits at the Mchtyslxth street station when It
happened From the ialan to wit
nesses be teamed that the Heventysecond

Albany engineer went by He had beard the
testimony of thai engineer who said that his
fireman I the signal clear but be nud not

Then hnw do you explain the fact that the
Konndd not ring

gonl don i boleve the gong can b rune by a
train running twentyfive miles nn hour Tie
wheels of the cars would travel RO lust that
they would pause the hammer or the gong to

Do you conceive It rosslble for a train to

considered The witness said that U wasnt
possible so lit as the main tunnel wee con
corned ami not advisable for the side tunnels
He thought that If some mechanical appliance I
could bu used to clear the tunnel of smoke and i
steam It would be a good thing I
Juror Wlekham iiektd him what he thought
thonlb
nf the scheme to Hunt the tunnel with electric
lamps Mr Platt declared that he > nod never
Fain an oleettlo light which would penetrate
fug and smoke for any considerable distance
and he remarked that there was no use deny
lag that I was PO thick In the tunnel that ery
