Wo Trunk Checks
In mast cnuntrifes of Europe there is
no system of checking trunks and other

put Off pic iks ks out his trun k hires a cab

Throughout England and Scotland and
the Continent there are three kinds of
coaches Passengers travel first class
second class or third class according as
the size of their purses allows In Eu ¬
rope it Is Is a common saying sayit that only
Hen Americans and fools 1 ride first
class The second class coaches are
comfortable and patronized by the best
people In Europe The third class com ¬
partments have no Upholstered seats
and are Used by the poorei classes The
first class compartments are magnifi ¬
cently fitted Up with hangings and up
holstery
Charles C Walker
Charles C Walker superintendent of
the Chesapeake and Ohio railroad at
Richmond Sr Sra Yft a who has been attending
the sess sessiOns ions of the railway aphgreas is
a man who worked his way Into his
present Important position from that of
brakeman on a train
He comes from a family of wellknown
railroad men throughout the South He
line a number of cousins and nephews
who have followed his example and
gone into the railroad business with the
intention ol working up to the top
At present he he has a good story which
he tells about one of his nephews who
has lately embarked in the ra railroad ilroad busi ¬
ness and who fln flnciii da it more onerous than
he had thought The boy is at work
in the lower part of Virginia where he
carries a chain with a surveying group
S He works while he is there laughs
Mr fr Walker because nobody In rail ¬
road work With or without a boss can
Idle and expect to hold his job But he
betrays a great tendency to come to
Richmond and recuperate from his
labors
Hes finding as all young fellows do
that the business is one of the hardest
of all Especially is this so for the
young man whether he starts on the
road or In the offices cf n company The
railroad business calls fc tot constant ef ¬
fort and application as riiaeh n1achso so as any
profession 1 Know
A German Delegate
A prominent figure In the lobby of the
Ntny Wlllard In connection with the
railway congress Is Delegate Schultz
president of the imperial jRaliroad eye
tern tenir r of the German empire Hei Is pleas ple as ¬
ant an d affable and goes about his work
in connection with ttie congress In a a
very direct and busirtesslike way He
was in this country about twelve years
ago when he visited inany na1i of the large
cities and inspected the workings of the
American rairoH dgf ds
Keri S Schultz < Jhultz is also a them her of the
privy council of his country and his
word has much to do with > the manner
in Tynich w hich the state railroadi of Ger ¬
many are operated operate d Ills position Osition is
easily appreciated whgft Whitwe we realize that
the Ka Cit iser i2 r when he wmits Information
and pointers about his railroads calls
on Herr Schults instead of having to j

slon ion i
Delegates Evade interv InteMewere iewers
One characteristic of the foreign dele
gates whic h has excited comment
among the newspaper men who frequent
i ilie he hotels where they stop is their
reticence in being interviewed for pub
lieatlon As A one Englishman expressed i
It yesterday we are thrown down
for an interview
With the represeiitatlvss of American
roa roads ds such Is not the cfcse case but the thefor for ¬
eigners seem to take the view that a
newspaper Interview cannot do them
any good and they prefer not to talk
They are always courteous when ap ¬
preached but as a a rule refuse to talk
for publication
One who was asked yesterday for his
opinion on the project to have a more
extensive Government ovemment control of Airier ¬
lean railways said he preferred not to
hazard his views on the thesubject subject as he
was a a foreigner and would not like
to be put in the th light of criticising the
country whic which h he was visiting
Not a little amusement has been
created among the foreigners tiy the
Jim Crow cars In the Southern States
of America The idea Is entirely strange
to them and they would never have an
idea of excluding one nation on account
of Its color from a certain part of their
trains
More than one of them have express ¬
ed a desire to see the Way lVayJn Jh whic which h the
colored people are sep sCpnted raied from the
whites
Among the AmericaiS railroad men
various opinions are expressed as to
the results and purporte d of the Senate
Interstate Commerce Committee now
engaged In its recess investigation into
the railroad problem in this country
Here are some of the comments heard
on In the subject in the lobbies of the
Willard and the Raleigh
The committee evidently is taking a
conservative view of the whole matter
and Is actuated by a desIre to give the
railroads a a fair show in any event
It is a sure thing that the practical
railroad men not the railroad lawyers
and theorists have given the thecomm comm ittee
the most valuable and serviceable In ¬
formation about the situation
The country is not as excited over
railroad legislation as It itwas was last win wi ¬
ter V
Senator Elkins is well qualified for
the chairmanship of the committee be ¬
cause he has the twofold Interest of the
demands of his constituents and the
safety of the railroads to cons ider
There will probably be legislation
on the matter but it will he e safe and
conservative 1
