KEEPING Wa OF CARS
Work of the Car Accountant's Office
in This City.
KEXNIO SYSTEM DESCRIBED
Interesting Method of Recording Cars
Owned by the Company and Those
That Pass - Over the Road.
, Magnltnde of the Work.
Few people have an Idea of the vast
ness of the work carried on In the car
accountant's department of the Dela
ware, Lackawanna nnd Western rail
road, which otllce was moved to this
city from New York when W. F. Hall
stead was made general manager of
the road and the headquarters located
In this city.
A reporter of The Tribune was shown
through the office yesterday afternoon,
and the system that is used In keeping
the record of cars explained by R. T.
Kennle, head ot"the car accountant's
department, who has held that posi
tion for the last fourteen years. While
working as a record clerk In the com
pany's office In New York, he Invented
the system which Is now In use nnd
which Is recognized to ba the best in
- Description of tho Systom.
The office employs about forty hands.
Some are engaged in keeping the record
of cars owned by the Delaware, Lacka
wanna and Western company, while
others keep the record of cars that come
on the Delaware, Lackawanna and
Western lines which are owned by other
corporations. All agents at stations on
the Delaware. Lackawanna and West
ern lines send In a daily report giving
a list af all cars received or delivered
to other roads; also on this report the
destination of each car Is given and Is
known to the ufllce clerk to be loaded
or empty by a plus or minus sign, which
Is opposite each car. On account of the
time and room it would take to enter
Into a book the name of the station a
car Is taken from or left at, a cipher Is
used, each station being known by the
number of miles It is distant from Ho
boken. Following is an example of
Jiow the record of a car Is kept:
If a car owned by some other com
pany should come on the Delaware,
Lackawanna and Western line from the
Grand Trunk raillway at Illack Rock,
N. Y., destined for Hoboken, It would
be entered in a book as "G to 414," tho
letter G being the cipher for the Grand
Trunk road, and 414 for the station of
Black Itock, It being that number of
miles from Hoboken. The next move
would be the conductor taking the car
from Black Rock to East Buffalo and
405 would be placed under 414 with the
plus or minus sign after each move to
show whether loaded or empty, and so
on until the car would reach Its desti
nation. If a Delaware, Lackawanna
and Western oar should be delivered to
the New York, Chicago and St. Louis
railway at East Buffalo, it would be en
tered as "405 to A," the number being
East Buffalo and the letter A being the
clptver for the New York, Chicago and
St. Louis railroad. If the New York,
Chicago and St. Louis should give this
to another western road, say the Chi
cago, Hamilton and Dayton, It would
be reported to the Delaware, Lacka
wanna and Western by a postal card
by the road making the delivery and
entered in the book as "A to C H" and
so on until the car was returned home.
Thus the owners always know what
road their cars are on.
Curs of Other Companies.
As soon as a car owned by another
railroad leaves .the Delaware, Lacka
wanna and Western lines the number
of miles made on Delaware, Lackawan
na and Western line la given to its
oredH and at the end of the month each
road Is paid accordingly The record of
cars owned by the Delaware, Lacka
wanna and Western company are kept
In the same manner with this excep
tion: Mr. Rennle has what Is known as
the "duplicate record." Besides keep
ing the record In a book a large case
supplied with small tickets. Is situated
In the cemter of the room and record
ktipt In the same manner on tickets,
each road having a separate box sup
plied with tickets. The advantage de
rived from this Is that by counting the
tickets In any of thesp boxes the exact
number of cars on any road can be told
immediately. A report Is sent In by
shops owned by the company each day,
and the day a car enters and leaves
shop iln entered. If a car owned by an
other company Is repaired at any of the
Delaware, Lackawanna and-Western
shops a bill for repairs Is sent to the
company which owns he car and set
Moments are made each month. This
Work Is looked after by Mr. Runyon,
who acts In the capacity of repair ac
countant. Mr. Rennle said that at any
time he can give the location of anj
car owned by the Delaware, Lacka
wanna and Western company.
About 60.000 oars ere dally looked
after by this department, and as the
mileage made by each car every month
has to be figured up. It is apparent
even to an outsider that there must be
an excellent system to take care of this
vast amount of work. Besides the 31 -088
cars owned by tho Delaware, Lack
awanna and Western there are about
as many more belonging to other com
panies, which pass over the road in the
course of a month, and which have
to be ltept track of with the most pre
else accuracy. There are about forty
connecting roads which are continual
ly taking or delivering cars, and some
of .these roads have as high as seven
Description of Each Car.
Another record which Is kept In this
department is a description of every
car on the road. As soon as a car
comes out of the shops it Is entered on
a large record book, with tiie date of
Its being put la service, a descrip
tion of Its make, dimension, capacity,
equipment, kind and size of doors and
whether new or rebuilt. If It is re
paired later on a record of this is also
kept, together with the kind of repairs
necessary; also when H Is again put In
service. ' ;l ' ' .'
Richard P. Hamilton, who is Mr.
Rennle's first assistant, presides oyer
the details of the work, although the
inventor of the system, sir. Rennle,
gives It his constant personal super
vision. Both these gentlemen have been In
this line of work for great many
years, and both are strong advocates
of the per diem system of renting cars,
a movement for which Is now agitating
the leading railroad companies. As
stated In yesterday's issue a company
at present under the mileage system
pays merely for the use to which a
neighbor's car Is put, and although It
may have the car in its possession for
a year it may only credit It with having
run only a few miles on its road. If
the per diem system was adopted a
road would return Its neighbor's car as
soon as it got through with it, and thus
a company could have the use of Its own
equipment more than It does now, and
would receive some sort of an adequate
return for the use of its cars on other
PRIEST IS PROSECUTED.
Pceallar Charge Brought Against Rsv.
Valentine Ilalough, of Old Forgo, by m
Woman of Loose Charsoter-Sald to
Have Been Caused by Designing Op
ponents. On a charge of criminal assault a
warrant was yesterday Issued by Alder
man Wright at the Instance of Tedella
Levozboski, an unmarried woman,
against Rev. Valentine Balaugh, of
Old Forge, pastor of the Greek Catholic
church, about which there Is much
trouble now In the courts. The woman
is 28 years of age, and admitted that
she is the mother of two illegitimate
children. Her testimony was so utter
ly devoid of any coherence and truth
that the alderman denounced the action
as an outrage and dismissed the case.
Ex-Judge W. H. Stanton represented
the woman and Attorney E. C. New
comb the priest. Since July 7 the
church at Old Forge has been closed.
The pastor and those who sympathize
with him brought Injunction proceed
ings against the contingent which
holds the keys and refuses to open the
church. Two of the defendants are
Kost Rusln and John Sharack, a pair
of tip top intriguers. The prosecutrix
blurted out while under Mr. Newcomb's
cross-examination that these two men
would not let her abide In peace unless
she consented to this persecution
against the priest.
She tried to prove the charge by
telling a bolstered up story In which
she got so tangled that the alderman
saw the motive. The criminal suit
against the priest Is likely to result In
trouble for the perpetrators.

Without any oratory the name of

Aug. 28. A short silence reigned before
Attorney RIchardiHolgate took the floor
to sing the praises of R. Willis Reese,
the Quay candidate. He started out
with a flowery Introduction and told
how forty years ago the (Republican

that no man has shown more skill in

years has had his hand on the pilot

Glenburn, appealed to the chair to shut
oft some of the La Plumelte's steam.
Chairman Mackey ruled that the orator
was In order and tie was allowed to go
on with his recitation. He ended by
nominating R. Willis Reese. During
his harangue Mr. Holgate referred,
with the hope of pandering to ' the
sentiment of the delegates, to the silent
senator as a "man who came up from

We have never thought favorably of
the Idea of advertising two or three ar
ticles cheap, simply to draw trade. Our
plan Is, and always has been, to make
the price on every thing io stock Just
as low as It can possibly be made.
Goods that usually pay all the profit of
a store, such as Teas, Coffees, Spices,
Confectionery, Cigars, -etc., we sell on
almost as close a margin as Sugar,
Flour, Butter, Hams, etc., are usually
sold, and we have found by adopting
this plan that we are selling more Teas,
Coffees and Cigars In proportion than
we are of other goods. We have a
great many people come to as for both
Teas, Coffees and Cigars that buy noth
ing else from us simply because they
get strictly first-class goods' in these
lines from us, at much lower' rates than
they are accustomed to paying. All our
Tea is bought direct from the Importer,
and often before, It has reached these
shores. We have been unceasing In our
efforts to offer the best. value for the
money in Teas, Coffees and Cigars for
years, and our sales in each of these
lines Bhows that our endeavors have
been appreciated by the publio. Our
prices on Spices,. Soaps, Starches,
Matches, Salt, Rice, Canned Goods and
Dried Frluts, and, in fact, all the class
of every day goods Is invariably below
