The lleniou fur Our Illirh Itallroad Tares
The first obvious reason for the differ
ence in passenger fares is a difference in
the kind of service rendered Continental
Europe pays two thirds as much as America
or England and gets an inferior article India
pays still less and gets still less The dif
ference is seen both in quality and quantity
of service In India express trains rarely
run at a greater speed than twenty live
miles an hour In Germany and Franco
their speed ranges from twenty five to thirty-live
miles an hour and only in excep
tional instances is more than forty miles an
hour In the United States and in England
the maximum speed rises as high as fifty
or in exceptional instances sixty miles an
hour With regard to tne comfort of the
cars in different countries there is more
room for difference of opinion there can
be no doubt that the average traveler in the
United Suites or even in the English third
class cars fares better than he would in
the corresponding diss on continental rail
roads and infinitely better than tho bulk of
travelers in British India Xo rates how
ever low would induce an American to be
content with an Austrian third class ac
commodation or to tolerate that which is
furnished the average Hindoo traveler
There is a second reason of oven greater
importance though it is less obvious at first
sight This is tho difference iu the number
of trains Taking into account density of
population and amount of travel Europe
has more trains than India and America or
EtiLlatid more than continental Europe If
there are r00 travelers daily who wish to
use a certain line iu India the authorities
give them hut one or two trains a day
They are thus ablo to secure very large
train loads and as the train rather than
tho passenger is the unit for many items of
expense the sacrifice of public convenience
in the miter of hours of travel is a source
of economy for tho railroad For a given
number of people who ran use railroads
Austria provides moro trains than India
Germany more than Austria England more
than Germany and tho United States moro
than England Each concession to the pub
lic conveyance iu this matter involves a loss
which must be paid for somewhere Pro

THEY AUK AVOltKED UI
Palestine ICailroail Circles Over the I and
G Investigation
Special to the Gazette
Palestine Tex March 31 The resolu
tion of Representative Gerald providing for
a commitee to investigate the receivership
of the International and Great Nothern has
caused considerable comment in railroad
and commercial circles in this city It will
be remembered that when the suit of Jay
Gould vs the International and Great
Northern railroad in Uidge McCords court
in which the receivership was inaugurated
Palestine stockholders made a vigorous pro
test which resulted in a suit here involving
the question of venue and the celebrated
case was reversed by the supreme court
The investigation as asked for by the legis
lature will in all probability develop a
sensation in the end and all tho railroad
men and citizens here arc glad of it
SOMi FUN A1IKAD
T at Campbell Attempts to Bonuce Col
iteration Counsel for the I nntl G X
Special to tho Gazette
Tviek Tex March 31 A few days ago
Col W S Herndon received a communica
tion from T M Campbell one of the re
ceivers of the International and Great
Northern railroad company informing him
that after April 1 his services as counsel of
the company would bo dispensed with Tbo
communication was in the nature of a very
unpleasant surprise to Col Herndon and it
did not Jake him long to make a vigorous
protest to Col T It Bonner and Hon Felis
S MeCord Judge of this judicial district
against what he regarded as a summary
and arbitrary act Learning that be had
received such a letter your correspondent
sought him out and asked him kbout it He
replied Ihavo received bum a letter
y f
It amounts to nothing Mr Campbell took
it upon himself to attempt to dismiss me as
counsel of the company without conferring
with or obtaining tho approval or consent
of his company Receiver Col T R Bon
ner or Judge MeCord His action being
without authority is of no affect and has
been annulled by Judge MeCord
From this it appears that the new re
ceiver is likely to have a very lively fight
on his hands If he persists in his deter
mination to force CoL Herndon out of his
position of counsel for the International
company The colonel is a man who will
not consent to bo peremptorily pushed
aside and h proposes to make things very
lively and interesting if the attempt to do
so is persisted in
The introduction of the Gorald resolution
to investigate the International and Great
Northern receivership has been a topic of
interesting talk hero to day and the news
of the action taken in the matter is eagerly
awaited
Commercial Industrial Commission
St Louis Mo March31 The adjourned
meeting of the commercial industrial com
mission of St Louis met to day and re

mercial associations of tho city The name
of tho association was changed to the St
Louis traffic association
At to days meeting a number of new
members joined the association and swelled
the membership to 400
A move to bring about many reforms is
now upon a firm footing and it is thought
the railroads in the near future will meet
tho demands of the association
Thero will be another meeting of the as
sociation on Friday next

The 1aymastcr
The next attraction appearing at tho
opera house Wednesday and Thursday
April 1 and 2 with a grand matinee Thurs
day will be The Paymaster
The penultimate theatrical attraction of
the present season is now occupying tha
boards at theTremont It commenced its eng
gagement last night will be presented again
for a matinee this aftornoon and again to
night The play was seen here last season
It deals with a hero who bears the heroic
cognomen of Robert Emmet OConnor
who is falsely charged with crime and in
carcerated but who makes his escatie by
plunging from the window of his prison
into a river below The river is repre
sented by a tank cut under the stage and
filled with water and is the most natural
feature of tho play The cast with one or
two exceptions is simply execrable The
leaps of the leading man into the tank first
to escape from prison and afterward to
save his sweetheart arein both instances
prompted by the right sort of motive and
are very thrilling and realistic scenes
Steve Mallcy as Larry OBrien tho com
edian is clever enough to deserve com
mendation and he adds to a good Irish
dialect a nimble pair of heels and a volco
with melody enough to sing a comic air
with sufficient eclat to win encore
Miss Clara Coleman the soubrettc is
also an exception in point of ability
She sings and dances very acceptably
and her work with Larry goes far toward
relieving the play from being very tire
some Miss Coleman is the sister of Mis3
Alice Coleman tho well known cornetist
and has quite a number of friends and ad
mirers in Galveston somojof whom sent
