Spalding Says a Few Words About

John W. Glasscock, the ball player, -writes
a letter telling why lie could not remain
frith the Brotherhood. President Spalding
criticises the Players' League strongly. E.
C. McClelland makes a definite challenge to
Alexander Miller for a 10-mile foot race.
Amid the many alleged statements of
Glasscock's position in the present base
hall controversy as to the causes for his re
fusal m join in -with the players in their
new departure the following letter written
by Glasscock himself to this paper will be
of exceeding interest. In some respects the
"Wheeling player points out strong reasons
for his conduct; reasons that have not here

received at this office last evening:
THE IlrTEBESTING LETTER
"W HEELrvG, W. Va., November M, 1859.
To the Sporting Editor of The Diinitch:
iJEAK biK-HaTlnK read the paper in reference
to tny alleged treachery to the llrotherbood, I
would like to lay the facts In the case before the
public through your agency, to eliow that the
blame does not rest on me entirely. '
On the evening of the 7th or last September the
Jw York and Indianapolis players met at Dick
Engel's. and held a meeting for the purpose of
signing this agreement. It was read by Mr.
W aro. and he asked u to elf n It. Denny and I
. Objected to signing any such article, as we under
stood it. It required mo to play ball In Brooklyn
for the same salary as I received at Indianapolis.
I told them 1 would not sign any sueh agreement,
and that caused a kick, Denny siding with me.
W ard said he did not care whether anr player
signed ltor not. he would, and rollowed it by
signing. Buck Kwlng and Johnson talked to me
about it, and said the agreement
WAS OSLT A FORM
to say tou would go with them If they should
make terms satisfactory. I signed on that under
standing, but with the condition emphatically
stated that I was to better my condition.
I lately received a contract from Ward; It was
not fully filled out. There vas no party of the
first part and had 1 signed It that blank conld
haTe been filled out so as to make me play any
where. Then again It was for a term of three
years and the consideration named was 3,000 per
year, which Imlgbt get If the club had good luck,
as the contract slated that the player's salary was
to be paid out of the net earnings. I think I
would be very foolUh to go with the Brotherhood
for less money than 1 have been getting and with
out any certainty of getting even that. I cannot
sacrifice my prospects and run the risk of tnjur
lncmy family just to accommodate Ward and
others. 1 think I have
TAKEN THE EIGHT STEP
In thismatter; If lam wrong I will be the loser. I
defy Slessrs. Al Johnson aud Ewlug to deny that
Denny and I signed that agreement on any con
ditions other than I have stated. The objects of
the Brotherhood, as I understand them, were to
enable the players to better their condition finan
cially, the abolition of the sales system and the
doing away with classification.
As the .Brotherhood ctUed for me to play ball
anywhere Tor less than 1 got last year, and as I
was practically classified by Mr. Ward and held
for a term or three years, wherein was I tc better
my condition, and wherein does the new system
Improve on the old one'
Hoping I have not taken up too much of your
time, and that yon will help place me in a right
light before the public,
I am respectfully touts,
John- v. Glasscock.
KEEDS XITTLE COMMENT.
The Utter needs little or no comment Of
course, it is In the mam an ex-parte statement,
but nobody can reasonably ueny that Glass
cock adduces some very plain and strong rea
sons in defense of his present course. If sen
timent is not to be considered the ruling ele
ment of baseball. Glasscock's case is a strong
one Indeed, and in many respects he has here
tofore been misrepresented as far as his present
coarse Is concerned. That part of bis state
ment relative to his understanding with Ewing
and Johnson is of the greatest importance, be
cause if it is true in Glasscock's case it may be
true in many others, if not all cases. Besides,
it It is true, that is if the "understanding" re
ferred to was general, no players need
uave very serious scruples aoouiu. However,
It would be unsafe to torm any definite opinion
on the matter until Ewing and Johnson have
explained their side of it
MORE F0M SPALDIXG.
He .Criticises the Brotherhood Balloon In
Chicago, November 27. la an interview to
day President Spalding, of the League, said:
"There is about just so much wind in tbe
Brotherhood balloon, and I suppose it has got
to come out, then -it maybe our turn to say
something. Talking baseball in midwinter
when there Is not much else to do is a harmless
and very inexpensive pastime. It costs a little
money, of course, to send emissaries from one
end of the country to other, but I hope tbe en
thusiastic backer who is putting up the cash
will feel himself rewarded for the outlay."
"What will the membership of the League
tbe coming year consist of T"
"There are ten clubs in the League as It now
stands. I don's think the circuit will be
changed from its present membership.'
"The Brotherhood people seem to be signing
more players than the League. How is this?"
"The League consider that the contracts
they signed with the players beforo the com
mencement of last season, giving them an op
tion on their services for 1S9Q, still hold good.
The players seem to be having a good deal of
harmless fun now, naming their own salaries
and signing what, to say the lecst, is a very re
markable document. I confess to some sur
prise that our old players, who. heretofore,
have shown a good deal of circumspection in
signing any contracts we have asked tbem to
sign, should be so carried away by their en
thusiasm as to put their signatureato a con
tract so obviously drawn in favor of the capi
talists. Possibly the enormous length of
the contract may have prevented them
from fully comprehending its con
tents. By the recent legislation
at tbe annual meetingof tbe League, the power
of engaging players for the next season was
taken out of tbe hands of the individual clubs
and Invested in a negotiation committee which
with N. E. Young as Chairman, and whatever
negotiations or contracts are being made by
League clubs must be made throuch him. As
It is nearly six months before it will be neces
sary to put a team in. the field, there is ample
time for each club to select its team, in tbe
possible event of the players getting their ag
gregation in the diamond. The boys will find
there is something else to do to get in full
operation, besides the naming of their own
salaries and signing contracts."
'How do you account for the attitude of the
prss in some localities, who seem to favor the
'That is accounted for partly from the fact
that the public are very apt to take sides with
the popular favorites, without regard to the
justness or fairness of the questions at issue.
SVhcn the popular excitement, which has been
superinduced by this peculiar and sensational
action of tbe Brotherhood, shall have died
away, the thinking patrons of baseball will
more justly estimate the services which tbe
League has" rendered In the widespread promo
tion nf the national-game in the past, and a re
action havinr set in, will undoubtedly accord
to it their support in the future. They will
also stimulate the chances of the game being
properly conducted under experienped leaders.
While the League has undoubtedly made some
mistakes, jet its 14 ears' record stands behind
it to-day as an assurance of its policy of purpose
in the future."
Ardner -Mans With Cleveland.
Another name bas been added to the Cleve
land club roll for 1830. Joe Ardner, the well
known second baseman of the Western Asso
ciation, one of th'e strongest youngsters, has
signed with the League. When affixing his
name to the contract Ardner said, with a laugh:
"I'd rather be a slave this year. Til tell you
why. Last year I playec a month on tbe co
operative plan. After the traveling expenses,
ground rent, ett, were paid, we divided up tbe
net receipts. I got 90 for my share. That
settled me." Ardner played last year with the
St, Joseph team. He is a hard hitter, a fair
base runner, and can catch in an emergency.
He is known all over this part of Ohio, having
played in some of the finest amateur teams that
were ever organized in the State. His habits are
exemplary. Cleveland Ltader.

The Two Noted Faclllits Matched to Fight
1SFZCIAI. TELIGRAU TO THX DISPATCH.
Saw Kkascisco, November 27. The direc
tors of tbe California Athletic Club matched
Jack Dempsey and Billy McCarthy last night
for a finish tight to take place in January
for a purse of 1,500, the winner to take
$1,500 ana lose $300. Both men are to fight at
154 pounds. Tbe winner of tbe contest will be
matched with young Mitchell for the March
contest. Some were of tbe opinion
that Dempsey would have a walkover,
while others were not so certain of it.
Attention was called to the fact that at S
o'clock on tbe evening of bis fight with Kelle
her, McCarthy weighed 159 pounds; it was
thoughtthat he could not come down to weight,
He offered $300 to Kelleher in case he agreed
to co on with the fight and should lose.
Kelleher refused tbe proposition and
Jimmy Carroll was sent over to McCar
thy, and after working bard with him
succeeded in bringing him down to
weight by hard sweating. This, -and the
fact that he did not have a bite to eat left him
weak. Notwithstanding this he won easily.
It IS acknowledged that be is shifty andtrong
and a clever fighter, and a splendid contest is
HORACE PHILLIPS IS TOWS.
The Old Manager States He ! Forever Done
Ex-Manager Phillips, accompanied by his
wife and brother, was in the city a short time
yesterday. He stated that he is done with
baseball, and will probably locate permanently
at Grand Rapids, Mich. He batf little to say
about baseball affairs. "I'm taking little inter
est in the business now," be said. "However,
I think the League will, as usual, come out on
top in its fight with the Brotherhood."
Mr. i'hillips did not visit a member of the old
club, nor did any of them visit him. This was
taken to mean matters are not of the pleasant
cst between tbe old manager and tbe club
officials. He left for Grand Rapids yesterday
A Big Shooting Tournament to be Held at
There is not the programme of sports for to
day that there used to be formerly in this city
on a Thanksgiving Day. Time was when
chicken mains, etc, were in full swing in all
parts of the city and its suburbs, but there will
only be one main to-day worthy tbe name. There
will be numerous "scratch" battles, however.
In addition to these there will be a dog fight
between two well known terriers. There is con
siderable money bet on tbe result.
The leading local event, however, is the live
bird shooting tournament at Brunot's Island.
It is under tbe auspices of the Herron Hill
Gun Club, and the managers are Messrs.
Charles Richardson, Jim Crow, E. E. Shaner
and F. F. Davison. Shooting will commence
at 10 o'clock this morning and will last until
evening. Excellent sport is promised. There
will be many minor events of more or less im
portance. The absence of the football players
prevents a football match. The local team, ac
companied by a host of friends, left for Detroit
M'CLELLAND TO MILLER.
The Pltisbnrgora Mnke a Plain Offer for a
Alexander 51 '.Her, of Philadelphia, has chal
lenged E.C. McClelland, of this city, to run a
ten mile race for $200 a side. Curious enough
Miller offers $12 as expenses for McClelland if
the race Is run in Philadelphia, but he de
mands $25 to run in Pittsburg. He also wants
tbe race to take place on December 16.
Referring to the challenge last evening, Mc
Clelland said: "Why, it is absurd to talk of
running a ten-mile race for $200 a side. lam
anxious to run Miller that distance, but $200
a side will not pay for training expenses. I
will run Miller a ten-mile race for $500 a side,
or even $400. and will give or take $25 expenses
for choice of track. However, I would rather
take $25 and run in Philadelphia, as there will
be abetter track there than here in December.
If this suits Miller we can put up the money
as soon as be is ready."

The Proposition to Dismantle It Bitterly
Richmond, Va., November 27. The
proposition made before tbe School Board
last night to dismantle the Jeff Davis
mansion has caused something of a
sensation here. On every side oppo
sition is manifested to removing this last
remaining conspicuous landmark of the
Southern Confederacy. Davis, whose occu
pancy of this quaint old structure
during the lour years of civil war
has made it historical, is drawing
to the close of his life. The people of
Richmond seem to be practically unani
mous in the opinion that the White
House of the Confederacy Bhould be
left standing as a monument of the
most eventful period in the history of this
country. The general sentiment seems to
be that if the city -needs another school
building it should be erected on some less
historical spot than that upon which stands
tbe old Davis house.

regarded with much favor, especially
as the new company is under the auspices
of tbe River Plate Loan and Trust
Company of London, which has been highly
successful. The Bank of London and
Mexico here has been made financial" agent
of the new company. There is ample room
ior soundly-managed companies of this
nature here, where the rate of interest still
continues high, especially in the interior,
and in the promotion of new enterprises.
Branches in the interior cities of large
banks of this city are nearly all doing ex

high. The business -boom here is growing.
Importations are running away up beyond

The business is solid, and based on
metallic currency. The crops are good,
and the appearance of wheat from the State
of Sonora at this capital is regarded as a
sign that the country can easily supply it
self with first-class wheat, as well as enter

IT'S A FAIR FIGHT.
Friends of Quay and Plait Deny That
Bosses Have Interfered
IN THE SPEAKERSHIP CONTEST.
Reed's Supporters Believo Their Favorite
Will be Nominated
WHEN THE SEC0KD BALLOT IS TAKEN.
The UcEInley Workers Much Encouraged by Beet nt
McKinley's friends are working hard for
the favorite ior Speaker. It is denied that
Quay and Pla'tt have interfered in the fight.
Sixteen or more Pennsylvania votes are con
sidered certain for Reed, whose friends claim
a total of 70 on the first ballot. The Presi
dent aud members of the Cabinet tell what
they give thanks for to-day.
1FHOM A STATP COBBISPONDINT.
Washington, November 27. Though
the air was raw and penetrating to-day, it
was the hottest day of the Speakership fight.
Many of the supporters of McKinley had
become very indignant on account of the
supposed intrusion of bossism into the con
test, and which had resulted, as they
thought, in the development of nearly solid
delegations in two States for Reed. All
day long the burden of their talk has been
that Quay, in Pennsylvania, and Piatt, in
New York, have been- managing things and
dragooning members to the support of Reed.
Members .of Congress from both States
deny that any such influence has been used.
Thev claim that while both Piatt and Quay
have a perfect right to express their prefer-1
ence lor a canaiaate ior opeaKer, iney nave
used their influence no further than to ex
press that preference in tbe most casual
manner. No one can be fonnd who has
heard Senator Quay even express a prefer
ence. QUAY SILENT, AS USUAL.
The strongest expression anyone quotes
from him is that he thought both Reed and
McKinley were needed on the floor of the
House. In regard to the charge of bossism,
he had nothing to say when asked in regard
to the matter this evening. He would not
take the trouble to deny such nonsense. If
he had attempted to influence anybody, it
might be found out from the other party.
Representative Belden, of New York,
said that so far as he was concerned he was
working for Reed solely on his own respon
sibility, and not as the mouthpiece of any
body. He was ior Reed because he be
lieved he was the best qualified for the
Speakership. Mr. Belden will give a
Thanksgiving dinner to-morrow evening to
the New York delegation, and it may be
that it will be definitely known after "that
how many New Yorkers will support Reed.
claims op the m'kinley men.
A Pennsylvania member said to the cor
respondent of The Dispatch this evening
that he did not know of a single member of
the delegation who had been influenced by
other than his personal choice, and that the
best refutation of the charge that the posi
tion of the delegation was dne to the influ
ence of Quay, is that Dalzell, whose dislike
of Quav, is of the most lively character, is
enthusiastic for Reed, though from a sec
tional standpoint be should be for Mc
Kinley. Though the supporters of McKinley do
not make their claims of support so strong
as formerly, and are not asserting the nomi
nation of their favorite on the first ballot,
they gather hope -and encouragement from
tbe fact that the practical consolidation of
the East is strengthening the antagonism ot
the West, and tending to concentrate it on a
candidate representing the West. They are
more quiet and more discreet than they have
been at any time, and are doubtless making
their position stronger by that policy. Thev
are doing very good and very hard work
among the members as they arrive.
CANNON'S fbtend hopeful.
Cannon's friends appear to be encouraged
by the wet blanket put upon the McKinley

Columbus, November 27. Governor
Foraker to-night issued Thanksgiving par
dons from the Ohio penitentiary, releasing
William Carroll, who has served 22 years,
and Anthony Baccioco, of Cincinnati,
who was convicted immediately after the
Berner riots. Carroll is one of the
most noted prisoners in the penitentiary,
and an earnest effort has been made to se
cure his pardon. He Is a mechanical eenius,
and during his imprisonment has in
vented quite a number of pieces, which,
it is believed, it handled properly,
would be valuable property. Carroll
was one of four persons who made an effort
to rob the Brown County Treasury in 1866,
when the guard, named Rose, who was on
watch at the time, was shot and killed.
Carroll escaped after being arrested and
was captured a year afterward and con
victed and sentenced to imprisonment for
life. Another member of the party named
Huling was convicted of murder in
the first degree and sentenced to
hang but commuted, and after
serving eight , years, was pardoned
by Governor Young. The other two mem
bers of the party received small sentences.
Baccioco was a policeman in Cincinnati in

How a Wall Street Man Avoids Meeting
New York World.3
The story that John Wanaraaker has
seized on a room at the top of the Depart
ment Building in Washington, to which he
can withdraw during business hours and be
safe from interruption is another illustra
tion of the fact that business men hate to
resort to all kinds of devices to secure time
and opportunity for prosecuting their bus
iness affairs. A Wall street operator who
hires a large room in. an office building
downtown secures himself from interrup
tion at the hands of people whom he doesn't
want to meet by locking his door-and pass
ing in review everybody who applies for ad
mission through an ingenious arrangement
of a mirror.
The mirror is placed on the wall opposite
to tbe door and on a level with the transom.
It is inclined, somewhat toward the floor,
so that nobody can knock at the door with
out having his image reflected. The opera
tor of the room looks up through the tran
som to the surface of the mirror, and if the
party is somebody whom he wants to see he
opens the door, and if otherwise the door re
mains obstinately closed.

One night when three or four of us boys

were in bed. He had a terrible snore for a
human being, and after several of us had
called to him and failed to stop it one of our
crowd slid out of bed, reached into num
ber seven, and, with great deftness affixed a
spring clothespin to the sleeper's nose. It
was, of course, expected that he would wake
up in a few seconds, but, to our surprise, he
did not, while at the same time he suddenly
ceased to snore.
By and by all of usj dropped off to sleep
and everyone in the car was up before num
ber seven. In fact, he slept so late that the
porter parted the curtains to arouse him.
After one look he jumped back with a yell,
and when we hurried up we found the man
cold aud dead. He was lying on his back,
hands locked under his neck, and that
clothespin had pinched his nose all out of

RESOLUTIONS DIRECTED AGAIH8T SEED
Katloial Sllrer Contention Wants a Western
Man for Speaker.
Senator Stewart yesterday addressed the
Silver Convention at length, arguing in
favor of the free coinage of that metal.
He stated that it was demonetized by a
trick at the instance of the bondholders.
Besolutions denouncing the alleged Wall
street candidate for Speaker of the House
were received with cheers.
Sx. Lor13, November 27. Soon after the
silver convention assembled to-day, the fol
lowing resolution offered by Sir. Jacks, of
California, was received with cheetsand re
ferred under the rnle:
Whxbzas, Wall street and Eastern bond
holders are now actually at work striving to
elect a Speaker for the approaching Congress
whose record Is entirely opposed to silver inter
Whereas, Representatives In Congress should
be servants of the people, and,
Whereas This great convention shows tbe
nnanimlty of public opinion in tbe Western
and Southern States and Territories in favor of
more coinage of silver, therefore, be It
Resolved. That the Western and Southern
representatives in Congress be requested to
support some friend of silver for tbe Speaker
ship ot tbe present House of Representatives,
and that their failure to do so will be a betrayal
oi ine people warranting ueir political death.
ADDRESSED BY BLAHD.
The Chairman, then .announced that the
convention would be addressed by Congress
man B. P. Bland, of Missouri. Mr. Bland
was received with a storm of applause and
addressed the convention at some lenzth.
He was followed by Senator Stewart, of
Nevada, whose ringing remarks evoked fre
quent outbursts of applause. The Senator's
add re A was a distinctively offhand talfc, and
seemed to suit the delegates much better
than the printed papers to which they had
previously listened. Among other things
Senator Stewart said:
Daring the deliberations thus far, I have
been profoundly Impressed with the fact that
the question of money Is involved in these pro
ceedings, and in order to understand what
ought to be done we.mnst confine ourselves to
the elementary principles that govern money.
Civilization without money is impossible. No
progress whatever has been made toward civili
zation wlthoat tbe use ot some medium of ex
change. The Individual hy himself, however strong he
may be, cannot become civilized or maintain
civilisation. The most intelligent and strongest
men among us are comparatively unable to
maintain civilization. We mnst avail ourselves
of tbe efforts, labors and Intelligence of others.
A CLEAB NECESSITY.
There must be an interchange of commodi
ties. In early times and among tbe savages
efforts have been made to obtain some medium
of exchange. The people ot some nations have
had cattle and others grain, and others shells,
and the Chinese had the bark of the mulberry
tree stamped in a peculiar way. The Africans
have various Kinds of trinkets. Nations have
tried lead, iron and copper, but finally all civil
ized and semi-civilized nations have decided
The Use of silver is pre-historle. The first we
heard of the use of silver was as money. Gold
was firsCused as an ornament. By and by we
find gold is used as money. The two metals
are peculiar they are Imperishable. Nothing
can destroy them. Their qualities are entirely
similar. Consequently the two metals, gold
and silver, are termed the precious metals.
For 8,000 years or more they have been tbe
metals out ot which money. conld be manufac
tured. Now, I say, as long as a dollar can be
(manufactured out of a given quantity of silver
or a given quantity of gold It makes no differ
ence to the owner what bullion he has. With
either he can get a- dollar, and with that same
dollar be can buy tbe same amount of labor or
SOME ANCIENT HISTORY.
When Borne rose to greatness by conquest,
she persistently gathered to herself tbe treas
ure of the civilized world. The excavations in
Spain bear testimony to-day of mining opera
tions conducted 2,000- years ago. Bat as she
went on accumulating gold, property was going
up, the whole Empire was employed daring
several centuries and until the time ot Augus
tus, when she was in the zenith, it is estimated
that she had from 1,800 to 2,000 millions ot
money, gold and silver, in circulation in the
Roman Empire. She, beside this, had a vast
amount of plate.
Alining ceased, the Empire was rent in twain,
broken up In fragments and Invaded. Money
was borrowed and lost, and she kept growing
poorer and poorer, until the end of the
seventh century, when she had lost the great
majority of it. The civilization of the world
went on for 700 years, poverty and debt grow
In e, ability to pay growing less all the time.
No man had any courage in those days. Ho
man could assert freedom and independence.
Why, I tell you, there is nothing like scarcity
Poverty, inability to pay debts, inability to
support a family, will make men cowards. Ap
plause. Tbe creation of the great middle
classes of England was brought about by tbe
discovery of gold in Mexico and South
America. Free silver In Europe was the cause
ot the people having some money and becom
ing independent The farmers ot our country
to-day, in consequence of the machinations of
tbe money kings and cold mono-metallists, are
losing tne inaepenaence ox cnaracter ior wnicn
they have been noted.
Their mortgages are making them cowards.
There is nothing that makes a man a coward so
quick as a mortgage on his farm and to have
his creditors pressing him. Applause.1 I will
not stop to explain to you how this silver
.demonetization fraud was committed- I was
In the Senate when tbe bill passed; X did not
know it; I bad no means ot knowing It; I did
not know that any such scheme was contem
plated. There was no discussion in the Sen
ate; not a word, not a suggestion in the Senate
tbat the silver dollar was to be omitted.
There Is nothing in tbe record of the Senate
to show how tbat dollar got ont The confer
ence of tbe committee don't show it, but we
find the fact to be that silver was omitted, and
I call upon the people to explain how It oc
curred. It may have been a mistake. Who
made tbe fraudulent dollar! Tbe men who
clandestinely got the bill through and who
seem to tako charge of tbe fraud.
A delegate Mr. Stewart, are the people
bound by that fraud?
Mr. Stewart They are bound as long as they
submit and no longer. Loud cheers and cries of
"hi. hi". Tbey are bound to that extent and
no more. This trick in thfeSenate was played,
for some motive. Let -us Trare it back to see
what tbe motive was. There was 12,500.000,000
of national debt that we know of. It is esti
mated by statisticians tbat there is from three
to fire times as mnch other debt, consistinerot
'county, municipal and private debts of in-
dlvldnaisaml corporations, as mationaiaeot.
THE BEASOK FOB IT. '
Suppose there was only three times as much,
tbat wonld make $10,000,000,000 of debt In aU.
When that debt was contracted tbe people had
tbe right to rely upon the supply of money
coming from tbo West Two hundred millions
ot gold and silver was being manufactured in
a month. Thsy had a right to rely on that and
to make on tbat. Now the scheme cut off one
half of tbat supply and tbe debtor is bound by
that contract: When you get in debt you sell
money short and you agree to deliver some
thing that ybu have not got at that time, if it
is a dollar you have contracted to deliver you
are in the language of tbe street "clinched."
We know before the report was made what
must be the result of the Investigation In
Europe. Wo knew that tbe Powers tbat were
at work, we knew very well, that the law of
supply nnd demand would make tbe price of
money go up and tbe price of property go
down; we knew tbat; all of us knew It. it did
not want any philosophers to tell yon how it
wonld be. The royal commission ascertained
the fact and tbey made It public Tbey ascer
tained it and put it In tbe learned language,
but all tbe same it is the fact. The world has
suffered and every age has suffered ana all
have suffered, and everywhere except the
bondholders. The whole world is suffering the
same as we are.

A railroad is a raUroad, isn't It? The
public thinks so. Hut under the surfaec,
railroads are sometimes bailt to sell. For
instance, there-is a piece of road I recently
saw that is laid of rails 30 pounds to, the
yard 106,600 pounds of iron to the mile of
trade. Now, a local street car company
will put 78-poand steel rail down 274,660
pounds to the mile, or 137 tons and 666
pounds. A. great scany trunk lines are
laying 96-pound steel rails 337,920 pounds,
or 168 tons and 1,920 pounds to tbe mile. At
50 a ton to isea the first would cost $1,690
a mile, the last 95,070. So it will he seen
bow railroads are built to sell. Bat this is
not all the saving-..
Sometimes, it .is cheaper to build two
miles of track around a hill thaa half a
mile straight through; and the miles
count in selling, especially Western roads.
Then, I have seen rails sp'iked at quarters
and centers, or, at most, half the ties
skipped. There is also a difference between
8-inch clear white oak ties without sap, 16
inches between enters, and "culled" or
solt-wood ties 2 feet apart. In short, it
takes a man a lefig time to learn the differ
ence that can-be made la' the expense of
constructing a railroad.
