Has an Idea a Speed of 100 Miles an
Hour Can Be Attained —Mechanical
Expert Compares Gait Made by Ori
ent Express With That of Best Amer
ican Lines.
Special Cable to The Globe.
LONDON, Oct. 4. — Comparisons
are odious and "we Yankees" hate to
be outdistanced, at the same time we
are apt to be, in more ways than one,
unless the pace is kept up that we have
established. Just as the great Ameri
can railroads are congratulating them
selves upon the establishment of a
twenty-four-hour trip between New
York and Chicago an order has been
received at the Cassel Locomotive
works for steam locomotives to run at
a speed of one hundred miles an hour
by the Russian government. The loco
motives are to weigh 78 tons and are
to be capable of hauling 100 tons at
the rate of speed fixed. With a load ol
only 90 tons they must be capable of
a speed of at least 125 miles an hour.
The railway question is one of the most
important in Russia and in view of the
necessary development of the empire
will he given foremost attention as it
will be the first thing requisite in the
mobilization of Russia's vast army. In
dependently of this point the future of
Russian railways is bound to be al
most up to that of the American.
I am inclined to doubt that this high
standard can be reached so speedily,
for, in discussion Avith the chief me
chanical engineer of a large American
railroad whom I met at the Savoy a
day or two ago, this gentleman said:
American Engineers Ahead.
"I believe that American engineers
will be able to keep ahead of the rest
of the world, for, although general
technical education has not reached
the high standard in the United States
that it has in some parts of the conti
nent, the American engineer is still
nhcad. Of course improved speed will
be made on American roads, especially
after our roadbeds have been improved
for long-distance runs. In what dU
rections the changes will be made it is
hard to tell. Many things suggest
themselves, of course, to the imagina
tion, but they are beyond the rang^e of
practicability at present.
"In fact the idea of sustaining a
I greater speed with any degree of com
j fort involves many intricate problems.
' Yet every year finds us building larger
engines and making greater speed on
all our most Important routes. The in
) crease is so gradual that it is looked
upon as a matter of course. The me
chanical masterpiece of the age is a
train of sixteen cars which has been
taken from Albany to New York at
the record-breaking pace of a mile a
minute. Between Yonkers and Dobb's
Ferry the run of this train has been
made at a pace of sixty-six miles an
;• - "It Is composed mostly of sleeping
cars and its total weight is 916 tons.
The locomotive weighs 270,900 pounds
and the train is about half a mile long.
"With more powerful engines it is
impossible to say how much the speed
of such trains as this can be increased.
There are so many possibilities to con
sider, from improvements which would
eventually mean revolution to small
changes which also have in the long
run a mighty bearing on the speed of
the train.
- "It would surprise the average per
son ta learn how much the decrease is
made in the time of a run by the sim
ple improvement of taking on water
while the engine is running, which is
the result of one of our- minor im
provements. To pass from small to
great things there is, of course, the
ever present possibility that a change
of motive power for heavy engines
_ may be made. But as this is not in
sight it does not come within the prac
ticabilities of railroading.
Would Use Coal Direct.
"Our engineers are more likely to find
the difficulties solved in a different
manner. Experiments are now being
jriade with the purpose of using coal
direct from the cylinders, in which
case It would be exploded so as to
produce the steam direct without the
use of boilers.
"This seems more likely to become
possible of realization than that any
other motive power will succeed steam
for long journeys. Compressed air is
a competitor which steam may have
to face, but we do not look upon it as
yet within the realm of practicability
for heavy railroad purposes. In the
first place the cost of installing the
plant would be fabulous. The main
objection to the use of compressed air
would be the danger of a breakdown
which would involve the" entire sys
"Now the worst accident that could
happen only involves the substitution
of another engine.
"Our metallurgists are confident
that within a short while new metals
Will be made which will possess enor
mous tensile strength compared with
that of those already in use.
"Some discovery in this direction
and a further means of avoiding fric
tion on the wheels would lead to a
positive increase of speed because it
would remove the risk attending more
rapid revolutions.
"My opinion nevertheless is that thfc
Increase of speed and in fact all
changes will be the result of gradual
changes unless unexpected develop
ments surprise us.

"As speed is a necessary adjunct of
luxury in traveling and is the funda
mental point in' railroading, I have
taken up that side of the question first.
Train a Solid Mass.
"It would seem, so far as actual
comforts go, that little could be added
to make a transcontinental trip more
comfortable. The train is now a solid
mass from end to end, preventing any
possibility of vibration where the
roadbed is perfect, a condition which
obtains on the best transcontinental
systems. The modern drawing room
car lacks little of the conveniences at
tached to the best hotels. With its
electric lights and fans, its electric
heaters, observation cars with either
in or outside seats, its barber and its
stenographer, its library and its news
ticker, it leaves little even to be de
"I have often been asked if we shall
not soon carry a doctor on each train.
The fact is I never yet knew a train to
leave our depot without a doctor
aboard. This remarkable fact has
been demonstrated so many times. In
cases of sudden sickness a doctor has
never failed to appear from among
the passengers when needed.
"So complete are the arrangements
of the buffets that it has lately be
come a fashionable fad to give dinner
parties on board trains. On special
occasions arrangements are made to
have these served by well known ca
"Those who travel back and forth
across the American continent on our
big trunk railroads know to what a
pitch the luxury of modern transpor
tation haa been carried. The modern
palace car is.the acme of luxury, and
.•t would seem impossible to eclipse it
as we note the hundred and one ac
cessories which go to make it the
highest idealization of plans and wish
es—a veritable traveling home. Yet
there is little doubt that another ten

decades will see us traveling in cars
as much ahead of those of today as
those of this age are of earlier types.
Do Not Excel Americans.
"Europeans think the service on
some of their roads is really wonder
ful. The Orient express, which
crosses Europe from Paris, is a good
train, and the equipment is excellent,
but does not by any means excel that
of any leading American road.
"I crossed from Paris to Constanti
nople in it the other day, and haa a
fair chance to judge of European re
sults. The train leaves Paris at 7 os
tensibly. It was eight minutes past
when it drew out of the grand depot,
and it was scheduled to reach Con
stantinople at 10:39 on the third day
after leaving Paris, a distance, rough
ly speaking, of 1,000 miles.
"Without a particle of prejudice, I
can say that the Orient express is far
behind, both in speed and equipment,
of any of our best American lines, and
it is supposed to be ahead of all the
continental trains.
"I will pass over the dining car
service, for that is always a matter of
chance on board trains, but the ar
rangements for comfort in sleeping
and drawing room cars were away be
hind our latest trains.
"The service was perhaps better and
more servile, but that scarcely made
up for the promptness and adroitness
of the American servant. Again, the
combination of dining car and sleeping
car is not a happy one.
"The new palace cars in Oriental
effect being finished for one of our
leading railroads far excel in elegance
and comfort anything which Europe
has yet accomplished.

Special Cable to The Globe.
AUCKLAND; N. Z., Sept. 27.—1 have
just seen one of the most important
public officials here who has to deal
with labor questions and seized the op
portunity of interviewing- him on the
question of compulsory arbitration. My
reason for doing this was that by my
latest mail I received accounts of the
distressing condition of the coal strike
in Pennsylvania. I think it may be
considered that this youngster, chip of
the old block, has solved the labor
question far more effectively than has
the mother of the colonies up to the
present time and give you over the
cable the giet of what this authority
said of the situation here.
"We may consider it a settled mat
ter, I think, that the main cause for the
triumph we have achieved in the solu
tion of the labor problem "he said" lies
in the principles of collectivism that
we have stablished.
"Of course New Zealand Is a small
country, and it may have been easier
for us to deal with the important social
Miss Angybel Blim, th' well known
specyal nurse iv th' Avenin' Fluff. At
th' time th' phottygraft was taken th'
infant was about to bite Miss Blim,
which accounts f'r th' agynlzed expris
sion on that gifted writer's face. Th'
Avenin' Fluff offers a prize of four dol
lars to th' best answer to th' question,
"What does th' baby think iv Miss
Blim?"' , ,
" 'Young Alf Hinnissy was siven
years ol' yisterday. A^ rayporther iv
th' Fluff sought hitn out an' indeav
ored to intherview; him on th' Nica
ragooan canal, th Robmanyan Jews,
th' tahriff an' th' trusts. Th 1 comin'
statesman rayfused to be dhrawn on
these Questions, his answer bein' a
ready, "Go chase ye'ersilf, ye big stiff!" J
Afther a daylightful convarsation th' |
rayporther left, betn' followed to th'

him smartly in th' hacb with a brick.

"But we have considered the matter
from a very comprehensive point of
view. The unity evolved by the spread
of trade-unionist ideas has reached be
yond the industrial sphere until it em
braces, at the present time, practically
every calling in the colony. As soon as
it was found necessary for employers
in trades and industries to organize
into unions of employers to match the
union of their employes, the farmers
and people employed in pastoral pur
suits did likewise, including both em
ployer and employe.
"The process of solidarity was thus
advanced. The farmers discovered that
under the* compulsory arbitration act
organization had enabled the artisans
to immensely improve their condition
by getting better wages and shorter
hours, this resulting in the fact that
higher wages had to be paid for goods
and for services. This demonstrated to
them that unless they organized the
rate of exchange would go against the
country if they could not present a
united front and avoid the possibility
of being cut off in detail as workers or
Fight for Arbitration.
"This has changed the entire atti-.
tude of the members in the house of
representatives from country districts,
and they now fight for, instead of
against compulsory arbitration. This
was demonstrated very forcibly about
a year ago, when the urban represent
atives attempted to exempt the farm
ers, hitherto the bitter, enemies of
compulsory arbitration, from the pro
visions of the law, on the ground that
the .nature of their occupation, mak
ing 'both night and day labor neces
sary, would prevent them from obtain-

"With an injured air the representa
tives of the country districts inquired
why their constituents should be cut
off from the benefits of such benefi
cent measures as those comprised in
the conciliation and arbitration act.
"This was the crowning victory of
compulsory arbitration and the most
complete answer yet rendered to the
assertion that It, as a principle, had
positively failed.
"It is now a question only of all em
ployers and employes becoming or
ganized so that the ultimate perfec
tion of the system can be obtained
and all points argued from the col
lective base. That is, at least, my
humble opinion of the matter.
"There can then be boards of mas
ters and men, which, between them,
can thresh out the various opinions
as to remuneration or hours of certain
branches of the various trades ancj
callings. The wholesale waste caused
by strikes will thus be entirely avoid
ed, and everything will work harmo
niously upon as equitable and practi
cal a basis as yet has been devised.
"Already the cutthroat competition
between workingmen has been stopped
and the idea of having a fight for
bread inaugurated practically aban
doned. The advantage to the employ
er is equal, the possibility of one em
ployer driving the other to bankruptcy
being practically eliminated.
Battle Was Fierce.
"Do not think that the situation
here has been brought about without a
considerable fight. The banded em
ployers have been often engaged in a
simultaneous attempt to head off labor
legislation. They have organized at
tempts to influence the public mind
and to incite resistance to conciliation
in committees of the house and in the
formation of factory la%vs, etc. But
that has been merely a forerunner of
the satisfactory solution of the prob-

occasional exaggerated reports of la
bor troubles here, but you can see for
yourself, while in the country, how
smoothly things are working and how
satisfied all classes of people seem to
be. You will find men remaining
steadily at their occupations, notwith
standing the fact that boards of con
ciliation may be very frequently in
session. The members of these, how
ever, effect their business very quietly,
evidence is heard on both sides, with
absolute deliberation, while no trade
relations are for a moment disturbed.
Remember, it is a vital point of our
law that the men must continue at
their w rork under old conditions until
a new ruling has been established.
"Every year finds us changing and
amending the law as conditions re
quire. New points of friction arise
and must be worn down, the law of
compulsory arbitration forcing equita
ble adjustment.
"There is one point of difference be
tween the United States and New
Zealand which might make it more
difficult for you than for ourselves to
carry out the provisions of the law sat
isfactorily. It is that your capitalists
are better organized than your work
ingmen, and that you always have a
large number of immigrants of the
poorest character and class, willing to
take the places of skilled workers
whenever the chances occur. This,
however, should not be a difficult
question to overcome, and the 'forcing
of compulsory arbitration might
bring other difficult points to a focus
and ultimate solution.
