Mr. Robert r. Porter, th<vwell known lr
traveller and newspaper writer on econ- rc
omical subjects, has a lengthy, timely ui
and Interesting letter 111 the Philadelphia
Inquirer on the subject of railway pool- H
Ing In England, and Its benefits and su- In
perlorlty over tho American system of tfc
railway competition. Ho discusses the
matter exhaustively, and In a way which tJ
shows that ho has devoted a great deal 1,1
of tlmo and study to the question. He tl
shows that railway pooling In England,
which Is legal, has developed n healthy C;
competition which has not only been K'
beneficial to the public, but has kept the I"
roads prosperous and clear from the con- 1,1
dltlons of. bankruptcy In which many of
tho roads of the United States have been hi
plunged by ruinous rale cutting. 11
The system of pooling adopted by tho K'
English roads Is popular with the public, l)r
on equal terms with each other; there is 1K
no favoritism, no rebate. All competing P'
roods between given points charge the
6amo rates to the same points regardless "
of distances, and the cutting of rates is
unknown, the maximum rate, of course, 01
being a legal one. Mr. Porter says:
Under these agreements, which appear to It
bo absolutely kept as to passenger unfile. i\
the wholo regular traffic of the llulted
Kingdom Is practically pooled. For ex- P<
ample, there aro four great railways com- f,,
petlng for tho traffic between London and
Liverpool?tho London,und Northwestfi-n, tu
tho Midland, tho (treat Northern nnd tho .i,
Great Western. Tho London and Northwestern
Is tho shortest and' moat direct > .
way, nnd theroforo tho faro is based on f
that route. Between It and tho Grout
.Western there la a difference of some forty bi
miles, yet tho faro on all four roads is j
identicaly the same. A rocular pool once J
existed between these roads lor tho Llv- n<
erpool traffic, but when It expired mutters ,
bad adjusted themselvea in a matter satisfactory
to each company, und tho com- iu
nuct or agreement has been substantially ,
Kept without the form of/ft pool. Of course, ''
If any one of theso four companies beKun hi
to cut rates they wqrild be met by the .
other companies until all bad enough of Ju
such folly, and entered Into an actual
agreement again. This, It should be remembered.
they have a perfect legal right r'
to do. Thus we have here, and there are h;
hunderds of similar Instances in England,
a tacit agreement as to competitive rate.-', t*
namely, that each company shaull secure. m
by legitimate means, all the through
traffic It can. the rates of faro being sunt- tb
lar at all competitive points. Again, the ci
dlstaneo between London and Birmingham
la 113 miles by the Northwestern, amt linu Ft
miles by the Great Western, yet both
charge the samo and do tho Journey in
the samo time. hi
The policy, Mr. Porter argues, has
made prosperous railways of these roads
that were laid out for legitimate pur- fJ.
poses, and madp the path of the "rail- y
way wrecker" more difficult In the Brltash
Isles. The public benefit may be '
understood in view of the fact that the f
misery entailed upon hundreds of thou- r
sands by illy considered and fraudulent '
railway enterprises In the United States
has been greater than any cheapening of
freight to tho shipper has been advanta- 11
geous. As It Is the railway stocks and '/
bonds of England are safe and prollt- '
able Investments for the savings of the
people. A railway clearing house exist- 1
ing by authority of law was established "
many years ago for the purpose of 111
affording in respect to passenger and ^
good3 traffic uniform facilities "as If such
lines had belonged to one company." Mr. h
Porter continues: fQ.
For nearly half a century the Railway
Clearing House has flourished and icrown
with tho railways, until to-day e very rail- ni
way company In England Is a party to this
Association, and lis Juadfjuart?? rs on Hey- tr
mour street, Euston Hquare, has practle- s.
ally become tho railway parliament of the
kingdom. To he sure, the Clearing House til
has nothing to do with the llxlng of rate . ,,i
either of passenger or goods traffle-. It '
has, however, all to do with tho carrying a
out of arrangements made between different
railway companies In Its pas ?-nrcr
department, the Charing House dlvld- In
or pro rat?*s tho moneys due each com- .
pany on all tickets Issued over more than
one road. In its parcels department, it ;n
not only looks after the dlvhdon of receipts
between railways, hut hetwe-n tinrailways
and the nrlthh government It- ot
self, which employs the railways to carry
the parrels sent hy post. In this way, In- r'
stead of declaring the association illeg.-il. ;i<
the British government becomes an active
partner In the association, which I hciievo ri
more ihan anything ei?r- has brought tip ,
the standard of railway companies in
England. of
It appears, from Mr. Porter's nrtlcl".
that the clearing house has full power In
relation to enforcing classification,
avoiding tho evil of fraudulent classlflcation
with which honest railway maringers
In this country have to contend. (
Tho objection that this agreement among
tho railways savors too much ot the , ,
"trust" Idea to he popular 1n thin ooun- t(

"In a hundred, probably a thousand,

The iv. ignatlon of Mr. Justice Field
'om the bench of the United States sureme
court, while not unexpected, is of Sow
lore than passing interest for more rea- Plod
>ns than one. Justice Field's longjudl- fuse
rul caif r, embracing more than forty a de
sars of continuous service on the su- amo1
reine benches of California and the
United States, has been a record of ^h
onr, marking him as one of the most elo')

roduced. His own resume of his Judl- new*

They dragged him from his dungeon
At dawning of th? day,
And out between the soldiers,
Drawn up In war's array.
They hound his eyes In darkness
And faced him to t he wall
Of an old deserted convent?
The bravest heart of all.
The captain pave his orders.
And "Heady" was the word;
The fearless young insurgent,
Unflinching, calmly heard.
Then shouted fortli his challenge:
"O, God. make Cuba free!"
And "Aim!" the captain ordered
With voice of villainy.
When, lo! before the captive
A secret door swings wide,
And In the narrow passage
Behold the Cuban's bride.
She looked a saint, and lifted
Her ryes unto the sky,

"Murlllo, It is I."
And In a moment led him

And shut the door behind her,
And bore her lover away.

And Icy cold their blood.
