The folowlng statement regarding the
Central Transportation-Pullman judg
ment was issued from the Pullman otllce
yesterday: "The decision referred to
Is not at all a filial one, as the en ho will
be appealed to a higher court. When a
former suit was carried to the I ulied
States supreme court It was decided that
the Central Transportation company
had no power whatever to make such a
lease, and that it was Invalid. It Is not
at all likely that the higher court will
sustain the present decree of the cir
cuit court. .The Pullman company Is
the largest individual stockholder In the
Central Transportation company.
Judge Myers. In the district court at
Ijeaven worth, Kan., (has decided that
land abandoned by a railroad reverts
to the former owner. Fifteen years ago
when the- Leavenworth, Topeka and
Southwestern was constructed, ten
acres of land running through a large
fnrm was taken by condemnation pro
ceedings. In 1894 the rood, which had
been operated under lease, was aban
doned. The owner of the ndjacent land
rebuilt his fences, including the railway
line In them. When, recently, opera
thins' were ' resumed on the line, -his
fences were torn down and he brought
suit. The case will be taken to a higher
The annunl report of the trackage
of the Pennsylvania Railroad company
has been completed. It shows the miles
of tracks between Jersey City and Pitts
burg and Erie to be 8.073. Of this mile
age. 4.084 Is of the first track, 1,171 of sec
ond, 349 of third, 234 of fourth track and
2,23.1 of company's sidings. During last
year there were five miles of additional
first track laid, 25 miles of second, third
und fourth, and 34 miles of company
sidings, making a total new trackage
of 64 miles. The mileage given above
does not Include any of the lines west of
Pittsburg which are controlled by the
Pennsylvania company. Lust year con
siderable new track was laid on the
lines west, but the tables have not been
prepared. Most of the new work In the
East was done on the Philadelphia and
Pittsburg divisions, although all sec
tions of the system were gone over.

amid tears forgave one another.
TRAIN CREW ASLEEP.
Over-Worked Railroad Men Fall to
Observe Danger Signals.
Norrlstown. Pa., Jan. 16. The engine
of a south bound coal train on the
Philadelphia and Reading railroad
.crashed Into the rear of a freight train,
which was at a standstill a half mile
above Bridgeport, opposite here, early
this morning. Four cars of the freight
train were demolished and the debris
was burned. No one was injured. -,
It. la alleged that the accident was
caused by the crew of the coal train
all being asleep at their posts. Rear
Brakeman Feldes,'of the freight train,
states that he flagged the coal train,
but that no attention was paid to the
THE HORSELESS CARRIAGE.",
Correspondent Barroa Describes. In a
Paris Letter to the Chicago Times Her
aid -His Ride la tine.
The simple truth Is that there are less
than a dozen horseless carriages in all
farts. As yet this method of transpor
tation Is hardly more than in Its in-
ciplency, notwithstanding It was ap
plied experimentally seven or eight
years ago. Excellent as are the results
thus far secured, that excellence Is still
a good remove from perfection, a dis
parity understood by no one so well as
by the inventors and builders, who are
striving to overcome It and who have
full confidence of ultimate success
They do not expect to supplant the
horse to any appreciable extent tor
many years to come, and for three
reasons the original cost is yet too
great (from $600 to 11,800); the care of
the machinery, If not the management
or tne machine Itself, requires a tiractl
cal mechanic; and prejudices of the
general horse-using public .iaa got to
be overcome by demonstrations in vari
ous directions that steam, oil or elec
tric motor wagons, etc., are not only
leasiDie, nut are more economic and
better In the long run than are the
means of traffic and travel now em
ployed In the city and country.
My first experience was gained at the
shops or l.es Flls de Peugeot Frerea. in
the Poulevard Ouvlon St. Cyr, who

seated vlB-a-vis we clambered, quite
wining to make a show of ourselves in
the streets of the most cosmopolitan
city in the world. In the throes and
agonies of starting the machine shiv

travagant ague, giving its machinery
a clamorous rattle, so that we felt as
If we were being subjected to a Swed
ish movement treatment to the accom
paniment of breaking chains. The odor
emitted from the burning petroleum
was much the reverse of pleasant, but
that was minimized by the breeze cre
ated by the speed of our movement.
When the trap was fairly under way
the vibration was not irreat and the
noise comparatively slight, while the
rate at which we traveled a Ions the
street wns to quite a degree exhilarat
ing, enabling us to dart with Impunity
across the course of horses driven In
the usual pell-mell fashion of the Pari
No Nam for It.
My the way. this style ot conveyance
Is so new that there Is yet no suitable
name for "It. The English-speaking
World will not aeeepVhe French term;
horseless carriage Is both awkward
and Inexplicit, and the word motocycle,
which I have used above, lsflioth Inade
quate and misleading. Inasmuch as car
riage and vans are no more cycles
than are omnibuses. Btreet cars, park
phaetons, buggies, etc., to all of which
the motor may he applied. It has been
suggested over here that all these ve
hicles which are self-propelled be
named dynams and classified by appro
priate descriptive distinctions, ns a
victoria dynam, a phaeton dynam, a
break dynam, a vis-a-vis dynam, an
omnibus dynam. and so on throueh the
catalogue of vehicles, which would Indi
cate clearly and comprehensively
enoueh that the particularized carriage
supplied Its own motive power.
To adopt this nomenclature for my
own convenience, the victoria dynam
constructed by E. Roger Is the hand
somest and completest of tne dynams
I have seen, and was constructed at a
cost of about $1,100. It Is an electrical
motor, having a primary as well as a
storage battery, either to be used at
pleasure or one supplementing the oth
er. Thmieh It has grace of curve and
beauty of finish to make it attractive
to those who take the air where fas..an
leads. It Is stoutly built, and seems of
a strength In gear and body to resist all
the perils and shocks of bad roads. M.
Roger confessed to me that the results
of exierlments with electricity are not
yet wholly satisfactory, and he Imag
ined that more had been accomplished
In America In that respect than In
France, one purpose of his visit to
America being to Investigate that par
ticular nhnse of the matter. At the
same time he Is emphatic In the asser
tion that his electric carriages have
worked with almost entire success.
"They are absolutely mietleal." he In
sists, "and are so constructed that' they
will run for 100 hours without re-charg-ing"

Our Great Colleges Were Not Such Vast
Institutions as Thoy Are Now.
From the Chicago News.
Dartmouth college consisted of a
wooden building 150 feet long, 50 feet
wide, and 36 feet high.
At Dartmouth English grammar and
arithmetic were text books In the so
Princeton, the greatest Presbyterian
college, was a huge stone edifice, its
faculty consisting of a president, vice
president, one professor, two masters
of languages, and seventy students.
Harvard university had four brick
buildings; tha faculty consisted of a
president and six professors, and in Its
halls thronged 130 to 160 students.
Yale boasted of one brick building
and a chapel "with a steeple 125 feet
high." The faculty was a president, a
professor of divinity, and three tutors.
The greatest Episcopal college In the
Vnited States was William and Mary's.
It was under royal and state patronage
and was, therefore, more substantially
favored than most of our American
sellouts. At this time. It Is said In a
curious old state report, the college was
a building of three stories, "like a brick
kiln, and had thirty gentlemen atu-

guished German geographer, to Mr. E.
Curtis, of the Chicago Record: "Last year

ited the fortress of Quebec. I was really
astonished at the dude appearance of the
Kngusn somier tnere, having no weapons,
but swinging a tiny walking-stick in the
air and balancing a monkey cap on one
side of the head. I also wondered at the
exceeding number of English soldiers in
Canada and the neglected cohdotton of the
fortress at Quebec. There are lots of
canon on the. citadel and walls of -Quebec,
out it some American (toys want some
night to play o good Joke they can spike
all those canon without being disturbed.
At the citadel a corporal showed me, with
areat orlde. two very small canon of the
caliber used In a German country village
to announce a icnuiaeniesi, neverinewss i
those playthings bear a proud Inscription,
announcing that they wore ruptured by
KiiKilxh soldiers from the I'nlted States a,t
Bunker Hill. I could hardly resist a
laugh, because 1 hud reud the name morn

I will show you a whole country that we
took at the same time from you. "
THE NEW WOMAN.
From the New Tork Sun
Do you see it? .
That living organism over there on tho
Oh. that? v
That's a new woman.
Wbut's a new woman one that isn't old?
Oh. no; one that Is new In the sense of
What's novel about her?
Several things; but underlying them all,
Has she Ideas?
That's what she prides herself on.
Is It so unusual for a woman to have
She thinks so.
What kind of Ideas has she?
New woman Ideas, mostly.
What kind are they?
Heterogeneous ami scattering.
What does that mean?
I'm er well, no two alike and all headed
Hasn't she an object?
She Is one.
Rut she must have some definite aim?
Just about the same kind of am aim a
natural woman 'has when she throws a
stone at anything.
You say natural woman. Isn't the new
She was born that way, but tries to
That's one of her ideas.
Has she any mure like It?
Not like it, but of the same class.
What does she do with them?
Exhibits them, principally. '
oh. It's a free show.
That meuns that she is promiscuous In
Pretty much promiscuous.
Would she as soon have women as men?
Not quite. That is to say, she wants to
convince the women and convict the men.
Convince the women of whut?
That they ure a down trodden sex.
And convict the men or what?
That they are the riown-treaders.
Do the women believe her?
Those who are not in love do.
Has love anything to do with It?
Well, I guess yes. When a womun Is In
love she husu't either time or wish to be
anything else but Just that.
Hasn't the new woman u heart?
She has what the dictionary call "the
muscular organ, situated In the thorax, the
action of which determines the circulation
of the blood."
Whut has become of her other kind of
it's all gone to'her head.
What effect has It on her head?
Jumbles It up so Inside that she doesn't
know a band-box from a ballot box. -
Does the new woman want to vote?
She doesn't know what she wants. That's
about ninety-nine hundredths what's the
matter with her.
What do the men think of her?
They never think of her when they can
And when they can't help it?
oh, they Just laugh.
Does she like to be laughed at'
She doesn't seem to care.
Isn't It true that a womun can't endure
being laughed at?
The natural woman can't; but we are
discussing the new womun.
Why Is he unnatural?
Hecause she is self-made.
Aren't self-mude men the greatest?
It Is so said, but the new woman isn't a
Then, what is sauce for the gander Is not
suuee for the goose?
Only In the Imagination of the goose.
Is the new woman masculine?
In her mind.
In no other respect?
In her apparel and in her manner, as
far as she dares.
Whut Is she afraid of?
And not men?
Oh. no; she Isn't afraid of the men.
She can't help being enough of a woman,
when men are around, to have a certain
Instinctive effect upon them; but she
can't be enough of a man when women
are around to have any instinctive ettect
How does she win converts among the
By being as womanly as she knows how.
8he argues for dress reform; she advo
cates a mild form of well-reguluted Inde
pendence; she suggests a wider intelli
gence, and does a lot of other talking for
the good of woman regardless of man.
She Isn't quite a foul, then?
Not by several lengths.
Does she win many converts?
She wins some, and sets a good many to
Why isn't she successful with all wo
men? She Is too radical. The average woman,
after B,0W) years of being a woman, llnds
some difficulty In growing whiskers and
putting on pants In a hurry.
Does the new woman advocate such radi
calism? The real new one does.
Are there degrees of newness?
Oh, yes; son.e of the real new ones would
like to see congress pass laws repealing
the laws of nature.
Are there many like that?
About enough to queer the entire tot.
Does the new woman every marry?
Not unless she reforms.
But most of them are married?
It happened In their natural state.
What kind of wives did they make?
The kind that hangs the motto, "God
Bless Our Home" on the wall and leaves
the balance to the hired girl.
Why were they such wives?
It's a way some women have.
Is that the kind all new. women are?
Not necessarily; but the good wife and
the good mother doesn't take a day off to
be a new woman. . .
Some women can't be good wives and
Possibly they could If they tried as hard
to be thnt as they try to be good men.
Are girls ever new women?
They think they are, but as a rule they
don't seem to fit.
Can't they learn how?
They can If Cupid doesn't happen to'
catch their hearts before they have gone
to their heads.
Love unmuns them, as It were?
A new woman must be somewhat of an
old womun before she Is eminently suc
cessful, mustn't she?
Yes. The feminine heart was fndo t-
flutter, and nothing on earth can prevent
it doing something In that line when it is
young and sweet ami beuis to mo uu.., .
of the music that has thrilled the world
since Adam first heard the voice of Kve.
Then why Is the new woman at all?
The flutter business is not always per
manent. Like any other. It Is liable to
bankruptcy. When a woman U bankrupt
in heart she either dissolves ln'o tears or
hardens Into stone.
Does that mean that the ne. woman be
longs to the stone age?
That's about It.
Aren't the men to blame for it to some
Couldn't they help the new woman if
Not much; she doesn't want their help;
that what's she Is fighting against; she
wants to be Independent.
Then why don't the men let her be that
They would be only too glad to; but when
the new woman really needs help she can
only get It from the men. They are her
natural protectors, and she hasn't been
able so far to dispense with their services
Will she ever be?
She hus some sort of a vague fancy that
Why does she have It?
It Is the result of the strain Incident to
her reaching for the unattainable.
Is what she is after unattainable?
How do you know?
The Creator didn't build her that way.
How did he build her?
Vnllke any other creature. He made all
the others of dust. Including Adam. When
he had breathed the breadth of life Into
man he took of this new substance and
made Woman. If he had intended her to
be man's equal he would have made her
of thesame common clay. - -
Do you mean that woman Is better than
man? . ' . . :, . - ...
Certainly I do. '
Then why does the new- woman want to
tnake any change? -i - , i
i Ask her.
