WMerits of 'the Vestibule Oar.
From tho New.York Times, May 23d, 1SS3.
Speaking of tho injunction in favor
of tho Pullman Company, restraining
tho Wagner people from the uso of tho
vestibulo attachment, a prominent rail
road man said the other day : "The
vestibulo attachment is ono of the, most
important improvements of tho ago to
ward tiiO'ticrlectiou ot absolute com
fort in passenger car construction. Sev
era! years ago, when t)io ,dining car
was introduced and the praotice of pre

timid people, especially ladies and in
valids, experienced great difficulty iu
passing frora'their seats in tho sleepor
to tbo dining car when tho train was
running at a high rata of speed. -Tho
open platforms between tho cars form
cd a golf over which they feared to at
tempt passage in fine weather and
which in wind or storm, or both, was
impassable to pcoplo with delicate con
stitutions., If tho dining car system
was'to bo a success, this objection must
bo overcome, and tho Pullman peoplo
set themselves tho task of bridging tho
chasm, in order to accomplish this
end they evolved and doveloped tho
idoa of tho vestibule, and in bringing
it into successful usago tho railway
companies, as woll as. their patrons,
find that the original difficulty has not
only been completely overcome, but
that a great many othor 'marked ad;
vantages havo been secured irr tho in-
(roduction 'of tho vestibule. One strik
ing feature is tho additional strength
created anq distributed ovor tho entire
train by tho cIobo fitting of'the coaches
to ono another and tho consequentr
increased power to withstand the shuci
of a collision. Telescoping is hardly
possible). in a well-equipped vestibule
train, from tho simple fact that tho
steel frames arrest the forco which
would drive ono c.u into another. Tbo
steadier motion with which tbo closely'
united factors of the train nro endowed
will loo readily reoognized as a most
beneficial result. This steadiness is
noticeablo at once, but particularly per
ceptible to tho occupants of upper
ueniis or moso wno, naviug trieu to
read or write m tho ordinary car, uc
dertakc to do so in a vestibule train
The vestibules, beside protecting tho
passengers in passing from ond to end
of the traiu, serve the purpoao of storm
doors to a residence, and prevent tho
sudden drafts which tho opening of an
ordinary, car door always creates. An
other feature, which is prominent from
a social standpoint, is tho deadening
ot tho noise mado by tho rapid rpvo
lution of tho wheels over tho rails, so
that conversation may bo carriod on
without in any way straining tho voice.
"Tho constructors of theso ci
'builded wiser than they know,' and
succeeded in abolishing many of the
petty annoyances that beset tho rail
way traveler, oven on the best equip
"lheso cars,' ho continued, "aro as
far. superior to tho ordinary coach as
tho Pullman is to tho old-fashioned
passenger car, Thoy enhanco in
great degreo tho pleasure and comfort
of travel, and, as tho loarncd judge re
marked in 1119 deoision nuovo referred
to, thoy must havo proved a startling
and successful innovation or a compe
ting company would not havo been bo
prompt' in imitating them. The Penn
sylvania's Now York and Cjiicago
Limited Express was tho pioneer ves
tibule train, and tho enormous popular
ity it has won is tho best evidence of
public appreciation of its merits.''

Tho valuo of tho phosphato of lime
to tho human system is every where ao
knowledgcd by tho highest scientific
authorities. This substance, is found
in wheat and other cereals, and const:
tutos tho vital or nutritive element
therein. Indeed, it may bo truly said
to bo tho essential and vitalizing con
stituent of all grains. If grams aro
dopnyed of their phosphate, thoir lifo
sustaining properties aro withdrawn

known fact that fmo white flour is do
prived of a large portion of the phos
phates in tho prooess ot bolting, antl
that such (lower alono will not sustain

nURO MONDAY MAY 23, 1888
Gentlemen of the Convention It is
riot to bo. wondered at tho assemblage
of a convention of tho second largost
bbdv of tho democracy of tho country
should be awaited with attention and
w nroccodincs viewed with concern.
The action hero of thos3 who claim to

lion frco electors is bound to bo weigh
ty with consequence. Applause.
This day, it is already forshadowod,
is to mark a new birth tor tho demo

For tho first timo within tho politi
cal generation of those oven older than
tho most of ns, our state democraoy
ranges it self iu line with tho Organiza
tion of the entire country on what has
at last come' to bo the BUprerae Issue ot
political discussion. Groat applause.
With faco to tho front and baok to the
past, wo aro about to declare for eman

High above the late contusion or.

sage of last December and tho rcnomi

Laggard as' they might havo been in
tho past, henceforth tho democraoy of
Pennsylvania will be to the front,
with' banners' high-advanced in the de
man 1 for revenue reform by a thorough
revision of tho tariff. Applallse.
Upon tho basis' of such measures as
tho concurrent will and wisdom of the
executive and legislative representa
tives of the party, have determined, we
will fearlessly preach this faith in tho
sheep pastures of Pennsylvania and on
tho threshing floors, 6n tha cinder
banks and in tho workshops; wher.o the
shuttlo flies and mill wheel turns in
factdrv town: where tho woodman's
ax 'rings through tho virgin forest of
tho West Branch valley, under tho
shadow, of the coal breaker, and where
the fire flag floats in tho oil fields of
western Pennsylvania. Applause.!
With a clear, distinct and unequivo
cal policy, aliko freed from tho delu
sions of the doctrinaire and from.tlio
thrall of tho monopolist, tho democracy
of Pennsylvania keeping Btep with the
niusio 01 a party moving 111 uuuruKuii
files, may. fairly hope to retriovo its
fortunes and to recruit its ranks.
Even if it emerge from the conflict
at first without victory it will survivo
without dishonorable concession or
disgraceful compromise. Applause.
In tho sobor second thought of the
American people thero can be no doubt;
sooner or later must como conversion
to a well proved system of , economy
nnder which the alert mechanical gen
ius of our country shall sell the pro
ducts of its handicraft in the open
marts of all the earth; then tho manu
factures shall bo relieved from the vic
issitudes of fitful stimulation and de

spirit of restored American commerce

Happily for the topic and tho timo,

Laughter and applause. To-day tho
democracy welcomes with fearless chal.
longo to tho presldontal contest of 1888
tho prcsldcntal combatants of 1884.
Well may we, assembled ns tho rep
resentatives of tho party in tho com
monwealth, turn with profitable con
trast to tho aspect of political conduct
prosonled here. Tho peoplo of Penn
sylvania in tho broken pledges of a
faithless administration havo learned
that tho promiso to en forco tho fundi
raontal law of tho Btato was to bo kept
to tho car and broken to tho hopo.
Tho wiso rovision of inadequato blun
ders if not moro serious crimes. Uor
porato cncioashmcnt has been un
checked. Flagrant violations of law
aro unpunished nnd tho state treasury
is roenauced with grievous deplolion
in tho relief of combined capital from
its justsharo of taxation.
In boldly formulating theso issues of
federal and state concorn in tho solco
tion of puro and capablo candidates;
in delegating tbo uutliorlty of this con
vention to fit'an intelligent represen
tativd to tho higher council of tho
party, in the participation lioro of la

wht so fortunes aro linked inseparably

fact that it comes to mo only as a ro

.tho collar of any individual buckled

Harmony is to be followed by aggres

Bie .Treasure Vault.
THE LAItOEST'CONSTRUCTION OF THE KIND
IN THE WORLD.
The one-hundred-million vault is tho
Jargcst construction of tho kind in tho
world, writes tho Washington ' corres
pondent of tho Pliiladclplija 2'imcs.
As it 'now appears it looks liko a mod
ern improvement on tho dungeons of
tho old inquisition in Spain, Italy and
Austria. Descending into depths of
tho massive foundations of tha Treas
ury, about thirty' feet below thoeurfaco
of tho publio throughfares outsido and
orossing a dingy, dimly-lighted baro
apartment, n great Bquaro of steel,
standing partly open 111 a steel case
ment, suggests tho entranoo to the new
vault. Tho door, about eight feet high
and six feel wide, is six inohes thick
and weighs fiva thousand pounds, or
two and one-half nettons. To movo it
on its tracks into itsstoelcasingreqnires
tho desperate exertions of fiyo men. A
mechanical device is now being con
structed to lessen tho demand for this
amount of muscle in haudling thepon-
derous portal. A lock ono foot in dia
meter, resembling tho highly polished
bottbm of a dish-nan and operated
through1 a combination of tho most do
lioate and intricate mechanical appli
ances by means, of a key, throws tho
powerful bolts into tho slots in the
frame, and a time-lock holds them
thero against any thing Bhort of blow
ing up tho building by tho roots until
tho hour fixed for the morning rounds
of the official custodian of tho vaults.
Passing through tHo jaws of this
monster of human contrivance ngamit
burglarious attempts, the chill, damp
air and inky darkness Buggcst the
strength and insolation of this vast
treasure-box. It is 85 fret long, .'i0
feet wido, and 12 feet high, surround
ed by missive walls of masonry and
brick fivo "feet thick. In tho dim
light of a candle tho weird lattico work
of interlacing bars of steel which form
tho sixteen cells, each ten by twenty
feet, may bo vaguely seen. Around
the inner cago leads a narrow corridor,
where tho custodian of tho vault may
make his rounds of inspection. Upon
a traverso central corridor tbo cells
open. h,noh door is htted with an in
genious devico tor fastening, which
will not catch until tho door is cntiroly
shut and tho' key removed.
h.nch ot theso colls will hold six and
a half million dollars, or two hundred
tons of silver dollars, or a grand total
of 3,000 not tons, equal to 100,000,000
silver dollars. If tho corridors wero
used for storago this aggregate could
be increased to $128,000. Somopracti
cal idea of tho extent of this trensuro
miy be' formed when it is realized that
to transport it would rcquiro at least
l.BUO wagonB, which would extend in
a continous lino from tho now city hall
of Philadelphia to Norristown, or a
train of cars which would extend from
tho Broad-street station to Fifty sccoird
Tho following summary of tho crop
prospects in this state for tho present
year has been prepared by Secretary
Thomas J; Edge, of tha stato board of
Wheat Tho averago of wheat this
year has been somewhat increased and
the condition of tho crop is far nbovo
that of tho same timo latt year. A fa'r
average crop may bo expected. As
rule tho percentage of loss by f roe zing
is low. In eastern Pennsylvania thn
err p will bo abovo tho 11 v or ago of the
past ten years.
Corn Tho average of corn has been
slightly increased, probably 5 per cent.
Tho, season has not been favorable to
the crop. Owing to cold weather
much has failed to sprout, thus compel
ling replanting. Less than usual loss
from bad seed has been repotted.
Oats There has boon but littlo
change in tho area sown with oats, but
Indications favor h fair crop.
Potatoes Thero will ba a slight In
crease in tho average of the potato
crop, although lat.t year's low prices
Fruit Tho indications previous to
last week's frost pointed to a largo
crop, but it is now impossible to indi
cate what the outcome will ho until
the result of tho cold snap shall havo
boon heard from. Considerable da
mago has been done
