THC TRAIN DISPATCHER.
A Man Who Hol.U the Llle of Krerj
l'ssiiger In III. Ilaml.
There is a class of railway employes,
almost entirely unknown to passengers,
whose responsibility is so much greater,
mid vvhv-e slightest omission might
jeopardize the lives of people on trains
more than any oversight on the part of
conductors or engineers, that it is indeed
strange that they are so seldom mentioned
iu the public prints. This class is the
train dispatchers, whose every order is
implicitly olieyed by trainmen: and while
the crew of one train is responsible for the
tnov einents of that train nlone. the dis
pat'he;' holds in his bunds the lives of
every individual on every train on the
road; nml on a ro.ul having n large traffic
ie duties imiosed ou him are very great
and ardiUMs.
His iKisition in the railway service is
tiuiiiie. ere nil trains running on time
nud provided for on the jieriodicnl time
table issued by the company, he would
have no duties to (lerfonii; but Unfits will
get delayed and (scasions will arise re
quiring e.xtra trains, or trains without
tiny spudded time or rights, tolie run over
the loud, and then his services are neces
sary to avoid hours of delay.
All trains ou railroads are divided In
classes, according to their importance:
generally two, passenger and height,
and all trains of one class running in a
Sccitled direction have the right of the
toad, or need keep no lookout for trains of
the same or it lower class running lu the
opposite direction. Thus it is assumed
that ou a certain railroad trains running
eastward havethe right of vvayover trains
running westward, then an east liound
jmssenger train can run the whole length
of the road in entire disregard nf all trains;
another passenger train going west need
only to look out for the east liound pas
senger train, while the freight trains
must keep out of the way of Isith passen
ger trains mid of the freight train which
is running In the direction presenlied as
having the right of road.
Kvcry one understands that all trains
are chartered, or have a time given for
passing cull station, which time can In
no instance Is- anticipated, and hence all
trainmen know where all other trains
ought to lie at any jiarticular moment, if
on time, hut as trains frequently and gen
erally get late, the train of inferior class
must luive its movement expedited by
some extraneous cause, or ft may Isi de
laved for hours awattimr a train thut may
have lien wrecked, or has been kept back
for some other of runny causes. Then the
duties of the tram dispatcher are of im
portance He will probably give an order
to the delayed train by telegraph direct
lug it not to go lK-yond a certain place
which lie thinks it cull reach without dif
ficulty, and he directs the uprising train
to proceed to the same place and there
pass the other train, and iu that manner
the trains are enabled to pass each other
without any delay to either. Ills great
rcsiHiusibility consists in that he may have
a doen other trains iu his charge at the
same time, and In directing one train to
go beyond Its usual place to meet another
he may neglect to give nil order to the
second train, ami in such an event a colli
slon would prolsibly ensue, lunch prop
erty be destroyed and probably lives bo
losL
It will readily lie seen that the slightest
mistake of a train disiiatchcr might cause
serious results; nnci in this resi-et his re
sjioiisHiility' is proliably greater than that
of anv cither individual under whose
charge the public arc placed. I'hilailttl;

New tTert for the Shoe Ituttoller.
It is ii singular fact that nine out of ten
of the bums and tramps brought into the
station house have on their erson a shoe
buttotier Xo matter w hut kind of shoes
they wear, still they have one of these
biniple instruments. Lieut, llambrock
decided a week ago to make a collection
of the shoe buttoners taken from the
prisoners brought into Hremeii street
station In the seven days they numliereil
eighteen, and like vising ladies do with
their strings of buttons, lie attni lied them
together He has now 11 diaiu some
three feet iu length. A iieculinr thing is
that the hook end is K-ut into a variety of
shulK-s. The )ieuchaut for having button
ers attracted the attention of the detect
ives long ago, and it happened to striku
.some bright minded )iol!cemun that
the little instrument could lie made
lo do the work ot a skeleton key. us
far as the locks in common use were con
icrned. In reality, the shoe buttouer. To
all intents and purjioses was converted
into a burglar's tool, aud still could lie
readily passed on as a necessary imple
ineiit in arranging one's toilet. The sis
