The employes claim that for the past
few months the foreman has compelled
them to work ten nnd one-half hours
a day for ten hours' pay. This lias
caused much discussion among the
men and several of them decided to re
fuse to start their fires in the morning
any eailler than seven o'clock. It J
lacked but a few minutes of seven .yes
terday morning when the foreman ap
proached two of the employes, John
Son tag and James .Shannon. They had
not yet started their llres and the fore- I
man ordered them to do so. The two1
men refused io obey his orders and I
were told that their services weie no
longer needed. Nothing was said to
any of the other hands.
The two men claim that they have
another grievance, respecting tin in
crease In wages. They were promised
n raise several months ago but as yet
the expected has not arrived. li Is
feared that more men may be dis
charged today should they refuse to
start work before seven o'clock.

receive their salaries tomorrow utter

the teachers to be paid, but the change

As noted under this head a few days
ago, the holiday rush of travel on the
Delaware and Hudson road Is on and
is growing daily. Loaded trains during
the busy hours, early morning and
evening, are the rule. On the evening
(rains up and down the coaches are
filled sometimes to overflowing. It fol
lows Unit the conductors have their
hands full to pick up tickets and are
sorely taxed to "clean up" a train, as
they call it. when the stops are so
numerous and the distance between
stations is so short.
For several days tho Delaware and
Hudson company lias had Its tratnS so
crowded that the work was found to be
away beyond what one could effective
ly dispose of, and a remedy hud to be
applied. The desired relief was secured
in the employment of an extra con
ductor on each train. The different
baggagemasters were called upon, and
now the work is divided. The conduc
tor begins in Ihe smoker and works
towards the rear. The extra conductor
starts in the rear car, continuing until
he meets the conductor. Til this way
ihe train is properly covered. All ot
the tickets are picked up between sta
tions and a heap of contusion Is avert
ed. It is an easy matter for a con
ductor to forget the destination of some
of the passengers, and II Is not unusual
for a passenger Io take advantage of
this and try to ride several stations be
yond the one to which his ticket carried
him. This arrangement also operates
to save delays, thereby keeping up the
elllcicncy of the service by maintain
ing the schedule.
Tlu head brakeman fills tho baggage
master's place and an extra brakeman
does duty on all trains except the two
Touching on the mistakes which a
conductor is likely to make in the tick
ets lie collects, brings to mind what a
conductor on one of the local roads
said the other day with reference to
this very subject.
"Of course," said he, "it's a trick of
our Job to remember the faces of every
body who rides and the tickets they
give up, but It's Impossible sometimes
to keep in mind everybody and every
ticket. This is particularly true on
leaving Scrantou in the evening, when
every seat in every car Is taken and
there are passengers standing In Ihe
aisle. Occasionally we have to ask n
man a second time for his ticket, but
we hesitate, for there Is sure io be some
bother, it's strange how people take
offense at this asking. They don't seem
to be able or willing to make allow--allies
for the overtaxed conductor who
has any number of troubles of his own,
They pitch Into him nnd reel olf any
length of abuse. The Intelligence of the
persons who lose their patience on such
occasions would surprise you. Hut
there's no redress for the poor con
ductor: he has to grin tiuil bear It with
Ihe lest of his troublis,"
I'ostiniistei- Thomas long ago earned
tin- lepiitatlou of meeting the postal
needs of the residents) of Carbondale In
a highly satisfactory maimer. In his
udmlnlstinliou of the otilcn of post
master he has shown ihe same qualities
Unit eliiiracterlzed his tenure of allien
as clctk of the courts, which was
marked by signal elllcicncy. Therefore,
when a department oillclal gives lesil
inoiiy anew of how well tho poHtolllce
here Is being conducled, It offers uddl
llnnnl iciisons for reeling that Carbon
dale has so worthy a postmaster. This
testimonial to .Mr. Thomas conies from
Inspector Gorman, who inado a Uslt or
Inspection to the Carbondale postolllce.
Like all government employes who hold
position where silence Is golden, Mr.
Gorman, after his Inspection, was not
what you would call voluble, but he
said enough to Indicate that everything
til the posiolllce was 'llrst-i lass;" while
his iimnner would convince one that his
repoit, if .Mr. Thomas could see It,;
would make hint feel that he was fully
mtnstiilug up o the postal depart
incut's standard ot a good postmaster.
A slglllllcnul Incident of Inspector
(ionium's visit was his comment on the
absence of storm doors at the lobby

prised that they were not in place and
I'l owned his dlspleasiuo at their ab
