RIDING ON TiIKELEVATED
BUCOLIC VISITORS THUNDER
STRUCK BY THE SYSTEM.
Half a Million People Carried Every
Day in the Year Some Amusing
Experiences Pay of the Employes
and How They Get Their Positions—
The Railroad Lawyer.
New York. July 16. Nothing about
New York more interests the stranger on
his first visit to the metropolis than the
wonderful system of elevated railroads.
And nothing more completely confuses him.
It is difficult for him to understand which
side of the mid he must ascend in order to
get the train he wants. A prominent
"Western real estate man, on his first visit
to New York recently, ascended the stairs
of the western track of the Sixth avenue
line at Park place Go take a train for an up
town hotel. ‘‘This is the down.train track;
you’ll have to go down stairs and come up
on the other side,” said the gentleman. The
stranger went down one flight of stairs,
crossed the street and ascended another
flight. He found himself at the same station
that he had just left. He tried to cross the
track but was restrained from doing so. He
was so confused that a guard finally con
ducted him Mow, directed him to the prop
er stairs and instructed him that he must
always turn his face in the direction lie
desired to go and then take the left hand
track. He gained the right station, hut
tried to gain the platform through the exit
gate. He was turned back, took his place
m a long lino of passengers who were buy
ing their tickets with great alacrity. If ho
had been observant he would have seen
that each had a nickel ready. He thrust a
dollar bill in at the window. It took him a
minute to gather up his iiandful of change.
While he was doing this a score of pa.
sengers were trying to struggle past him,
hut they were uiianle to do so. The stranger
■finally gained the platform and heaved a
sigh of relief. He heard someone shout
“Ticket, sir!” but he paid no heed, for he
had bought his ticket. Then the train
rushed up, and the stranger made a dash to
get aboard, but the gateman caught his arm
and directed him to drop his ticket in the
receptacle with a sort of pump lever that
stands at the entrance to the platform.
When the stranger had finally deposited his
ticket he made a mad rush for the train, but
the guard slammed the gate of the platform
and would not, to the man’s intense disgust,
admit him. He looked doleful, but his grief
gave way to surprise when two minutes
later another tram came along. Ho in
structed the guard to let him off at Thirty
third street. The guards on elevated trains
have no time to look after each passenger.
If they open and close the platform gates
and announce each station as a train stops
and give the name of the next station as it
starts they have done their duty. Home of
them have a confidential way of calling out
the stops in very unintelligible speech that
would provoke the envy of the avej-age
brakeman on a Western railroad. When
the train started from the Twenty-third
street station the guard shouted “Thirty
third street next!" The words “Thirty-third
street,” were in a loud tone. The next was
almost unintelligible. The stranger, think
ing that he was being carried away from
Thirty-third street, made a desiierate effort
‘to get off, but the platform gate restrained
him. Finally he reached Thirty-third street,
descended to the ground and walked to his
hotel perplexed, hut after ail pleased with
the wonderful elevated railway system of
New York. He had lieen accustomed to
traveling on lines whose passengers got
atioard and disembarked with exasperating
deliberation. It pleased hitn to observe
with what rapidity, as compared with
Western lines of travel, the passenger traffic
of- the great elevated system is handled.
There are some features about the
management of "L” roads unlike the con
duct of any other linos in America. Every
day an “unusual occurrence” report is made
out and laid before the General Manager.
It reports, for example, that an intoxicated
man tried to get aboard at one station and
had to be put down st airs, that a man with
an unmuzzled dog in his arms got aboard at
Fourteenth street, and that another man
with another unmuzzled dog followed in his
wake and tried to go aboard, but was turned
back by the eeemitric gateman, although
the ticket seller insisted that he should he
admitted. There was a brief war of words
between the ticket seller and the gatemau,
but the latter triumphed and the man hail
to go and buy a muzzle for his dog before
the man at the gate would let turn pass.
One of the most unusual occurrences of
recent date was the ease of an old and some
tv hut exhilarated countryman who took the
Fifty-eighth street train for Harlem. This
is a train on the Sixth avenue line which
leaves the road leading to Harlem and ends
at the southern end of Central l'ark. The
old ntan went to the terminus of the Fifty
eighth street line, found out his mistake,
went down stairs anil upstairs again, took
a return train, was carried by where ho
ought to have changed cars, and finally be
came so confused that lie berated the guard,
who put him off at the first station. He
crossed over the line once more, took an up
town train and amused himself by calling
out at every station in a cynical, revengeful
tone “change for Harlem!” The cry made
one nervous woman not acquainted with the
route rush out and leave the train which
•was bound for Harlem. At one Hundred
unri Twenty-fifth street more strangers were
confused by the old man’s call of “change
for Harlem!” and again he was compelled
to leave the train, with the result that he
did not reach Harlem until the next (lay,
but when he got there lie was a wiser mid
more sober man.
There are thirty-two miles of double
track, or sixty-four miles in all in the ele
vated railway system of New York. Every
day track hands walk over it anil another
set walk under it, craning their necks as
they look up for any defect in the line. At
One Hundred and Tenth street the Ninth
avenue track is, at points, more than 60 feet
high, and the inspectors above have a dizzy
walk, while those on the surface crook their
neck out of shape in gazing up at the trestle.
The ride over this high section of the line
makes many nervous persons very timid,
but the track is so securely guarded with
heavy guard timber that it w ould tie almost
impossible for a train to leave the rails. In
one or two instances axles have broken, but
no train lias ever left the track. If a com
plete derailment should occur at One Hund
red and Tenth street, and a train should fall
Upon the rocks below, few pnssangers
Would survive the accident. The thirty
two miles of elevated roads on Manhattan
Island is divided into four lines. As ull
roads wen- said to lard to Home, so all “L”

confusing number of cross lines and branches

Each, train which consists of four or five

One of the most curious developments of
practical life in New York is the phrase of
the legal profession known as the railroad
or financial lawyer. The traditional bar
rister of the old English style, wizened and
withered by the study of parchments by
the midnight oil, is very far from the
vigorous, generous and practical character
that wields so much direct influence in the
great movement of affairs in New York
city to-day. The fact is that the develop
ment of our railroad system has risjuirml
and produced anew sjiocios of legal advisers
who are familiar with their professional
specialty and who are otherwise capable of
suggesting origiual means and methods to
their clients. In this way they become
interested parties, as well as counsel, iu the
schemes promoted by financiers of the day.
Talking with some of the parties interested
in the recent Pucific Railroad Investigation,
I was told of an incident in Mr. Edward L.
Andrews’ career which at once illustrates
his peculiar kind of capacity and at the
same time exhibits the wonderful shrewd
ness of Jay Gould in picking out men. It
seems that Mr. Andrews, who is one of the
most prominent lawyers in town, had
brought a foreclosure suit for some English
clients against the Kansas Pacific at a time
when Gould was also fighting that concern.
Gould saw the pa]iers in that suit, admired
the wav they were drawn, and then obtained
from Mr. Andrews an opinion on the
validity of the income mortgage. The result
was the famous purchase by Gould of two
millions and a half of the Kansas Pacific
income bomis at about ten <;ents on the dol
lar. Gould retained Mr. Andrews, prose
cuted the suit, and, in the end, acquired the
control of that great, highway. The hold
ers of the lionds had not thought very
highly of their security, but Jay Gould,
backed by an able lawyer, soon brought
them to a different frame of mind.
In another 1 " case a big railroad wanted to
extend its line to some Western point,
several hundred miles distant, and was
about to construct that mileage at a heavy
cost. Mr. Andrews suggested to them an
alternative presenting an enormous saving.
He showed them on the map where the
purchase of the depreciated bonds of several
defaulted roads would give them control of
the greater part of the distance, requiring
the construction of only u small mileage to
make their through connection.
The versatility and readiness of this class
of men is remarkable. A few weeks ago the
executive authorities of the city of New
York obtained an opinion from the Corpo
ration Counsel that the statutes of New York
prohibited the sale of wines with meals on
Sundays to guests of fiotals. The proprietors
of the Brunswick wont to their lawyer one
evening and asked him for a post-prandial
opinion on their rights. They said that tho
question involved an income of 8150,IKK) a
a year to the hotels of New York city. Mr.
Andrews read tho opinion of Judge La
combe, and penciled off on the spur of the
moment an opposing view of the question.
A few duvs afterwards tho committee of
the hotel-keepers had it printed and cir
eulated. It was published in the daily
papers. and some of them were inclined to
jioke fun at what they deemed an over-re
fined construction of the law. However,
the hotel association backed up their
counsol, and the result was a unanimous
opinion of the General Term of the Su
preme Court sustaining his interpretation of
the law. Guests of the hotel now rejoice in
a glass of wine with their dinner after the
deprivation of it for several successive
Just now a well-known New York lawyer
is engaged in an enterprise of a public and
national character. He purposes to bring
about a settlement of State liabilities and is
backed in the undertaking by a powerful
syndicate of liankers, with the wealthy
house of Morton, Bliss & Cos. at their head.
The wonderful advance of the prosperity of
the Southern States has indicated that the
present is an opportune time for the efficient
handling of this subject.
Modern times have brought anew devel
opment of legal talent. From men of this
character many of our leading railroad
presidents are taken, James F. Day, of the
Michigan Central; John M. Walker, of the
Illinois Central; Franklin R. Gowen, of
the Heading railroad, mid last, hut not
least, Chauncy M. Repew, were all practic
ing railroad lawyers before they presided
over our great system of railroad transpor
tation. The railroad lawyer is a man of
enormous influence in the business world.

A certain doctor in town was once called
to set a patient's leg which had been broken
in some way. The patient was one of those
kind of men who considered it morally
wrong to pay a doctor’s bill, and he owed
the physician already quite a sum. After
setting the leg of I lie fellow and oinking him
as comfortable ns possible, the patient
turned to the doctor with a sort of thankful
not expression, and said:

doctor said lie had enough and he receipted

THE INTERSTATE LEAGUE.
What the Base Ball Boys are Doing in
A meeting of the organizers of the Inter
state Base Ball League was held in this city
a few days ago and views interchanged re
garding the matter. After some discussion
resolutions were adopted to the following
1. Any person playing in this league
shall have been a resident of his respective
city for two years previous to his engage
2. One-half of the franchise money shall
be awarded the club winning the pennant
The Secretary, William P. Bailey, was
directed to forward copies of the resolutions
to the several clubs, as follows: Atlanta,
Columbus, Charleston, Macon, Augusta,
Columbia and Jacksonville, and also to cor
respond with them in regard to the matter.
As soon as the eight cities notified inform
the organizers here of their decision, a meet
ing will probably be called in Macon or Sa
vannah to perfect the league organization.
The members to compose the Savannah
club will be selected from the general clubs
in this city. It may as well lie stated in this
connection, that the players here are being
watehed carefully as to their qualifications;
so they may take warning from this and do
their best, if they expect to secure positions
in the League team. Tlje players will re
ceive a regular salary from the club, of
This scheme is certainly a good one,
and should be encouraged by all lovers of
baseball. The success of this Interstate
League will be the means of giving “home
talent” a chance to expand, and also will
keep the money that has lieen expended on
forejgn players at home. Besides
greater interest will be taken in
this league, composed of clutwof this section,
as it were, and the various contests between
the different cities in the league would
prove very productive of sport, and attract
hundreds who would never attend a foreign
clubs games. The Managers request the
papers in the cities enumerated to place this
matter before their readers. Mr. William
P. Bailey is the Secretary here, to W’hom all
communications can lie addressed.

Nashville, July 16. —For four innings
there was a grand display of fireworks to

C. R. Nagles has been appointed master
of trains on the East Tennessee road, with
headquarters at Atlanta. He succeeds J. J.
Kress, who has gone into the wholesale
fruit and commission business.
The first meeting of the stockholders of
the Columbus Southern railroad was held in
Columbus Friday. Directors were elected
and an organization perfected, and the indi
cations are that work on the road will be
commenced at an early day.
The Georgia Pacific railroad made its an
nual returns to the Comptroller General
Friday. The road was returned at an
amount which averaged only about SIO,OOO
per mile. Two or three years ago the road
was returned by arbitrators at abdut that
figure per mile. Since then it has been
completed through to Columbus, and runs
solid trains from one end to the other.
Being a part of a great system it does an
immense business, both in freight and pas
senger traffic, and Comptroller Wright feels
that it should pay the same valuation that
roads of a like description make. This val
uation would increase the returns of the
Georgia Pacific about $4,000 per mile. The
returns were sent back for correction. If
the road refuses to accept them, the matter
will have to be adjusted by arbitrators, the
rood selecting one, the Comptroller the
other, and these two choosing a third.
One of the Oldest and Most Popular
Institutions In Atlanta.
The human race is scourged by many ter
rible diseases, some of them hereditary,
some arising from carelessness or exposure,
and not a few are the result of the indul
gence of baleful habits, which, like on armed
man, take possession of their victims body
and soul. Prominent among the latter are
opium-eating and the intemperate use of
alcoholic stimulants. But of the two the
former is infinitely more debasing and dele
The habit of opium eating, or the use of
narcotics in some other form, is the more
insidious and hurtful from the fact that it
.s almost universally practiced in secret.
The writer had once a life-long friend, and
true gentleman and Christian, whom he did
not even suspect of indulging in this per
nicious habit until he confessed it within a
few months of his decease. It was the same
old story. His medical adviser had pre
scribed it as a remedy for neuralgia, and the
fascinating drag, which banished pain and
steeped the senses in a delicious lethargy,
nad at length overmastered him. How
many similar instances might be recounted.
To Dr. B. M. Woolley, of Atlanta, Ga., is
due the merit of discovering a remedy and
antidote for this terrible malady which is
sweeping hecatombs of victims annually
into untimely graves. The doctor is a native
of Alabama, but for a long period has re
sided in Georgia’s capital. A graduate of
an Allopathic college, and skilled practitioner
of medicine, like the great Calhoun, he was
induced to make the cure of the opium
haoit a specialty, as the former did the dis
eases of the eye and ear, because of its fear
ful ravages in society. With this view, af
ter much study and long continued experi
ment, he finally succeeded in discovering
a certain remedy and line of
treatment, which has made him famous,
and proved an inestimable benefaction to
mankind. This is not the work of a charla
tan or unprincipled impostor. On the con
trary, his treatment of this disease—for dis
ease it certainly is—has had the unqualified
indorsement of such members of the faculty
as have tested its merits both at home and
abroad. A single instance out of many
that might be cited, that of a professional
brother, P. H. Pendleton, A. 8., M. D.,
late resident physician to Louisville
(Ky.) City Hospital will suffice for
the candid reader. It is in substance as fol
lows: The doctor had sufiferred from a very
acute attack of articular rheumatism in
187fi, and was compelled to resort to mor
phine for relief, But the disease refused to
yield to medical treatment, and he was
forced to continue the use of the narcotic in
increased doses to obtain any ease. This
went on for ten years until the amount of
the deadly drug administered daily either
internally or hypodermically, reached
almost fabulous proportions. "Hear what
he has to say. “On July 21, 1885, I had
taken thirty grains of morphine. On
the morning of July 22 I began with
your medicine, and to my great surprise
and gratification found that. I could quit off
the opiate at once.” * * * “My rest at
night was sweet and refreshing, ‘which it
had never been under the use of morphine.
My appetite increased, and I gained in
weight notably in a few months." The
doctor goes on to say that by December he
was able to discontinue the antidote, and
felt like one to whom “anew lease of life
had been granted.” Certificates like the above
might be multiplied by the hundred, and
indeed are in print and duly authenticated.
But the Woolley treatment and remedies
for the cure both of the opium and whisky
habits are so well known and established
that further evidence is wholly unnecessary.
Read what that sterling religious journal,
the Christian lnde.r , lias to say on the sub
ject: “These have proven to'be infallible
remedies and made Air. Woolley a benefac
tor to his race. * * * We know of their
good effects. Let the afflicted give them a
Dr. Woolley’s fame has crossed the At
lantic, and numerous orders have been re
ceived for his medicines from London and
other parts of Europe. The Atlanta . Con
stitution, Evening Journal, Athens Ban
ner, New Orleans Times-Democrat, South
ern A ryus, New Orleans i'icayune, and
scores of other influential journals have
borne no equivocal testimony to the virtue
and value of his remedies. Of late, consid
erable solicitude has been expressed by the
friends and patrons of Dr. Woolley lest the
seeret of Ins cures, in case of his de
mise, should perish with him. But we
are glad to state that in that event the busi
ness would still be continued by his son. Dr.
Vasser Woolley, who was graduated with
distinction several years ago from the At
lanta Medical College, and is associated in
practice with his father. In conclusion, the
writer, after a former business association
and intimacy of several years with Dr.
Woolley, would cheerfully indorse all that
has I icon said concerning his personal stand
ing and the great value of his opium and
