At n meeting of tho Stove Manufac

Oct. 0. 10Q0, u unanimous spirit of In
dignation seemed to prevail nt tho cure,

their transition, and numerous opinions
were freely expressed that every year

As a partial attempt at remedying
tho troublo resolutions wore adop ed
and forwarded to the various nillioad
companies, setting forth tho nvinir'ne
tureis' grievances. A copy of the reso
lutions was yesterduy posted for em
ployes of the Central Railroad of Now
jorsey.and accompanying It was a bul
letin order front Superintendent W. W.
Wentz, jr., which read us follows;
"To train nnd enginemen; Your at
tention Is Invited to the attached copy
of resolutions adopted by tho Htove
Manufacturers, Oct. 9, 1900. Parti u ar
attention Is caled to the causes leudlng
to damage of such merchandise, espe
cially as to tho lack of care In making
tho couplings, use of air, and In fail
ing to particularly proteot cars from
damage In making flying switches.
"You are enjoined to use great caro
In the performance of your work, and
thus overcome cause for complaint on
the part of our patrons."
The refolutlons lengthily state thttt
during the past several yeais the
breakage of stoves has steadily In
ci cased, and tho greater part of car
loads at a lime have reached their des
tination broken, tn small shipment of
from ten to fifty stoves H has been a
freauent occurrence for half tho cargo
tn be very badly damaged. An Inves
tigation made Into the cautcs of this
condition of affairs showed that auto
matic couplers were In a way responsi
ble, as they tended to Incrcnso oaie
lessness among tho railroaders, nnd It
tho first contact of tho curs did not
couple them, the engineers Jammed
them together with a force that cau ed

tents. Air brakes suddenly applied to
a car going at high speed, also were
considered the causes of much damage,
and llylng switches, made carekssly,
wore said to be responsible for n uen
oral shattering of the wares.
Transfer stations not possessed of
the proper facilities for baggage hand
ling are deemed another cniuo of com
plaint by tho manufacturers.
