THAT IN'Ti;iiS".\TF. LAW.
IT, MADE NO PJO VISION FOR
'FREIGHT ON WOiEN’S BUSTLES.
The Traffic Manages Are All Excited
Over the Question and May Refer it
Back to the Intestate Commerce
From the New Y<rk Evening dun
The pool corninissioiers and trafH: man
ager! of the trunk line, the central traffic
lines, and the transcoitinental lines are in
a muddle. And it is al about a little siniplo
matter which any woman could Answer in
half a moment, namely, the difference be
tween a hoopskirt and a bustle.
The story, as told by a railrad official, is
Messrs. Stiefel, Sachs & Cos. of 18 Walker
street, in this city, are extemve dry goods
shippers. They do a bjg txnscoutinental
business, mainly with their inn Francisco
house, Sachs Bros. & Cos. Anong the arti
cles which they ship are lades’ bustles. Not
a week goes by but large caes of these im
portant articles in the mtonal economy of
a lady’s attire are shipped rom New York
to San Francisco by this h>use.
Last spring the traffic nanagers and pool
commissioners of the line between the At
lantic and the Pacific .oasts made out a
new rate sheet to take effect on May 9.
The rate sheet covers nanv pages of large
paper, and comprises atieles of every pos
sible description. Undo-the head of “dry
foods” is to be found the word “bustles.”
ho rate affixed to tiis is $3 per hundred
pounds. Under the lead of “wire goods,”
is to be found the woxl “hoopskirts.” The
rate affixed to this is §1.50 per hundred
This was done witi ail the arrogance of
ignorance. Probabl' every man in the
meeting thought i* knew' just what a
bustle was and what a hoopskirt was. If
the traffic managers had been a little less
conceited about thdr wisdom, if someone
of them had only *ked his wife, in an off
band way, for a definition of these terms,
days and weeks of labor would have been
But no one did io, and the rate sheets
were printed and distributed all over the
country to railroadmen and to shippers of
all kinds. Tim shipping house of Stiefel,
Sachs & Cos., and (bubtloss many others be
side, were shrewd enough to take advantage
of the ignorance oftho rate makers. They
shipped their many cases of bustles with the
mark “wire goods” on the boxes, paid the
rate of §1 50 per hundred, and they flour
ished and wore happy, and their race multi
plied on the face of the earth.
It is the custom of the agent of the lines
in the Transcontinental Association at San
Francisco to open the boxes and see
whether the mark on the outside really
corresponds with the articles inside the
The agent of the lines, who was acting in
this capacity last July, happened to be an
officious young man of the kind who think
they know ail about it. He opened a
case from Stiefel, Sachs & Cos., marked
He found in it a collection of articles, the
nature of which was, he thought, known to
him. He was a married man, and he felt
sure the articles contained in the case were
bustles. The rate on bustles was, he ascer
tained, twice as large as the rate on hoop
skirts. On the strength of this he reported
buck to the Pennsylvania agent of the Star
Union line that a higher charge should have
been made on that consignment of goods.
The Pennsylvania agent looked into the
matter. He was a bachelor and didn’t
know any more about bustles than he did
about Kamschatka. But he thought the
Californian must know, and so he sent back
word that he coincided in the opinion and
would see that the matter was rectified.
Then he referred the subject to the agent of
the California Fast Freight line. This gen
tleman did not agree with the other author
ities who had expressed their opinions on
the matter. He said the articles were made
of wire, hence they were wire goods.
As hoopskirts were the only things
named under the head of wire goods which
could be anything like the articles in the
box in nature, he thought that the shipper
should be given th i benefit of the doubt.
Still, he said, his ideas on the matter were
not altogether clear, and he asked that the
subject be referred to Commissioner Albert
Commissioner Fink made an exliaustive
examination into the case. It seems that
the articles in question were about 2W? feet
long. They had an outward, an inward and
a second outward curve to them. They
were wire frame with a cloth covering. Mr.
Fink’s idea of a bustle was a wire article
about a foot long, and shaped like a quarter
of a sphere. A hoopskirt, on the other
hand, he took to tea wire article in the
shape of a dinner tell without the handle.
He didn’t know anything about these com
promise things with their in curves and out
curves. It must he something which hnd
recently come in like in curves ami out curves
in the game of base ball. Such things
weren’t heard of when he was a boy. They
might be hoopskirts and they might be bus
tles. On the whole lie was inclined to
agree with the Star Union man that they
were bustles, because lie didn’t think they
could bo hoopskirts.
Then the matter was taken lief ore the
Broadway Classification Committee. This
committee consists of representatives of all
the trunk lines between New York and
Chicago. The thing had now teen going on
for alxiut six weeks, and there was a stuck
of papers about the ease a foot high. AH the
reports and opinions of the railroad men and
all the evidence which could be obtained, by
deposition or otherwise, were carefully kept
for future reference.
The Broadway Classification Committee,
among whom is Commissioner 8. F. Pier
son, listened patiently to the evidence, but
flatly refused to give any opinion. They
considered that it was a subject for wiser
beads than theirs to decide. They referred
the matter to the committee of the Central
Traffic Association. This association is com
posed of the representatives of the lines be
tween Chicago and the Missouri river, and
Ls headed by Commissioner G. K. Blanchard.
The Central Traffic Committee listened
eagerly to the evidence, and asked for more.
They all had decided opinions in the matter
and tried to express them all at once.
At last, after a stormy meeting, in which
the committee reaolved itself into two fac
tions and much bad blood was shown, they
gave it up and sorrowfully returned the
answer that they could not agree upon a ver
dict. The committee is composed of four
men. Two of them insisted that a bustle
was a “little sawed off thing shaped like a
quarter of an orange,” and that these big
long tilings must te hoop-skirts,
The other faction as vehemently protested
that a hoopskirt was a big thing that “came
ail the way around.”
Then the matter wont to the committee of
the Transcontinental lines between tbo
Omaha anil the Pacific coast, of which L.
U. Cannon is a member.
The Transcontinental people, after sev
eral wordy meetings nnd a couplo of all
night sessions, succeeded in coming to an
agreement. The articles were hoopskirts.
They were sure of it. They were all inar
m'd men, and it was a pity, they said, if
they didn tknow what a hustle was.
Having now, after months of inquiry, ob
tained a verdict from one committee, the
California Fast Freight people referred the
matter back to the Bt ir Union lino to te re
considered. Representatives were appointed
from the two lines to visit the house of
Htiefel, Bachs & Cos., on Walker street, and
probe tiie important subject to the bottom,
That, there should lie no prejudice in the
matter one married man wa* appointed on
the committee and one single man. The
married man was the Htur union man, Mr,
Frank Smith, and the techelor was Mr.
John H. Mliillinn, of the California Fast
Freight at 3*f< Broadway. 1 ast week the*'
two gentlemen met and discussed Um ques

received them kindly. He undertook to
s low them the error of their ways.
"You see " he said, “the old-fashioned
bustle has not teen in use for manv years.
It was a little, short contrivance. Now the
new-fashioned bustle is longer and larger
It is much like a hoopskirt, and we claim
that it comes under the head of wire
He then brought out samples of old-fash
ioned bustles, new-fashioned bustles and
hoopskirts, until the head of the unmarried
representative, Mr. Minihan, began to
swim witli bewilderment.. They loft the
store wiser men.
That is the way the matter stands at
present. The evidence and weight of opin
ion seems to te slightly in favor of the hoop
The committee appointed by the two lines
submitted the case, with their additional
testimony, to the Trunk line people, in
whose hands it now lies. They will hold a
meeting in a few days and will consider the
subject. It is hoped that they will arrive
at a decision. If they do not, the case may
have to te brought before the Inter-State
Commerce Commission, and the views of
this august body on the subject of bustles
and hoopskirts will then be revealed to the
“The tale offers a sad example of the re
sults which follow an attempt on the part
of intelligent men to meddle with a subject
which is beyond them,” said the railroad
man who told the story to the reporter.
“The men who prepared that rate sheet are
men whose names stand high in the annals
of railroad management.
“Yet so simple a thing as a bustle floored
them. Had they been wise and consulted
their wives, as I have done, they would
have learned that hoop skirts are not worn
now in civilized countries like the Unit,si
States. Again, why should they rate bustles
at #3, and Ifiop skirts, which are made of
the same material, but are much larger, at
§1 50. Surely if they had had any concep
tion of the subjects they were treating of
they would not have done so.
"If there had only been one woman in
that company of traffic managers, how dif
ferent would the result have been? Hoop
skirts, bustles and dry goods of all kinds
would be rated with some sort of system.
This matter throws anew light on the sub
ject of later for women. Think how much
work aud valuable tim-j could have been
saved if there had been a woman at any
one of these meetings when the subject was
“Now the case may go tefore the Inter
state Commerce Commission. What then?
Are those sages any better authorities on the
subject of hoop skirts and bustles than anv
other men? They will be just as badly off.
If there only were . woman on the Inter
state Commerce Commission we would have
some hopes that justice might te done.”
AN ARTIFICIAL LARYNX.
A Genuine Talking ’Apparatus Sub
stituted for the Vocal Organs.
From the Boston Advertiser.
One of the most remarkable operations in
the history of surgery is now being per
formed at the New York Hospital by Dr.
Bull, one of America’s most noted surgeons.
He has removed a man’s larynx and vocal
organs, and is now perfecting a machine
whereby the patient may be able to articu
late in a loud tone.
About six months ago Mr. William Wil
son, an engineer of Newburg, N. Y., who
is undergoing this painful but heroic opera
tion, experienced a difficulty in breathing.
He thought at first that it was somo throat
affection caused by a cold, hut the trouble
increased at such a rate that he felt it expe
dient to come to New York and consult Dr.
Bull. It is fortunate that he did, for had he
delayed two days he would have been a dead
man. As it was, he was in danger of suffo
Dr. Bull thought that Mr. Wilson was
suffering from a papillary growth in the
larynx, the same disease that the Crown
Prince of Germany was under treatment in
England for. The operation of tracheot
omy was performed by cutting an orifice in
his windpipe and passing a silver tube into
the lungs, thus allowing the man to breathe
through this medium. When it was neces
sary to feed him, this opening was plugged
up with a rubber cork. The larynx was
also opened at this time, scraped out and
Mr. Wilson went home apparently in good
health and experienced no difficulty with
his new breathing machinery. He did not
enjoy his freedom from pain very long,
however, for he returned in three weeks
with his throat in a worse condition that at
first. The wound was opened and a piece of
the papillary growth examined under a mi
crospe. It was learned that Mr. AVilson was
suffering from cancer of the larynx. Dr.
Bull then decided to remove the whole
larynx, and with the assistance of Dr.
Weir five weeks ago performed a most suc
cessful operation. Mr. Wilson, who is a
man 152 years, stood the ordeal bravely, but
it was decided to put him under the influence
of ether. The surgeons cut an incision
down the median line of the neck per
pendicularly over what is known as
Adam’s apple. The wound being well
sponged, the delicate task of removing
two inches of the man’s larynx was then
undertaken. It was cut off just above the
trachea and below the epiglottis, and the
piece removed. It resembles in alcohol a
piece of macaroni half as large as a man’s
thumb and about as long. Tne wound was
packed witli an antiseptic dressing that
stopped the flow of blood and tended to heal
the cut. Food was then administered to
him by means of a hard rubber tube pass
ing into the stomach Two weeks ago a
tube was attached to the tracheal ttite on
the inside of the orifice in his throat. This
tube passed upward into the back part, of
the mouth, partly filling the cavity that
was formerly occupied by the larynx.
After this tube was put into his mouth
Mr. Wilson could talk with his tongue and
lips, but his articulation was very faint.
Then after this tube was inserted it was
necessary to put a plug in the upper end of
the tube whenever ho wished to eat; for
without a plug liis food, instead of follow
ing the natural channel to the stomach,
would lodge in the tube Dr. Bull there
upon inserted a rubber tell that closely
fitted the orifice. This accomplished the
desired result in that direction. Then the
plug was withdrawn from the other, or
tracheal tube, thereby allowing the man to
breathe and eat at the same time.
Having performed these astonishing op
erations so successfully, Dr. Bull thought
he would go further aud provide the man
with u talking apparatus, seeing that ho
hail cut away all of his vocal organs. He is
accomplishing his purpose in a wonderfully
clever manner, inasmuch as he has made a
hollow plug to fit the tube timt runs into the
mouth. In this hollow plug a reed identi
cal to the little tongue or metal that vibrates
in u harmonica is placed and fastened with
great care in such a manner that it will vi
brate and cause a distinct tone when the
outer orifice is closed, and the air drawn
into the mouth, through the two jointed
tubes into the lungs and from the lungs ex
pelled in the same manner.
The Doctor is experiencing some trouble
in fitting this reed, hut thinks that in a
week’s time Mr. Wilson can talk us well as
ho ever could, though Ids tone will te
changed, that, of course, taking the tone
ami pitch of the reed.
Mr. Wilson will not have to learn to talk
again, but doubtless will surprise himself
when his new voice gets in good working
order New reeds can te put in at any
time that Mr. Wilson's voire fail* him, but
one reed properly taken care of should last
him the remainder of his natural life. He
lim. stood hit sufferings well, and when be
returns home in a few days lie will te en
abled tei attend to bis business, though it is
t nought that hi* friends won't recognize his
voiie over the telephone For delicacy of
•qierution and the remarkable results at

The Condescending, the Fishy, the
Gushing, the Disrnifled * and the
From the Home Journal.
The bony shake is not confined to either
sex; it may lie found alike in tall and short,
stout and thin; and consists of an offer of
the bones only of the right hand; not until
your hand closes round the shaker’s palm
can you feel the coldness, the lack of fervor
in the greeting; there is no responsive grip
to your own, but the muscles only of the
fingers and the palm lie in your hand, as
though you were handling that which may
te fitly described as belonging to one of the
lemon squeezers of society, one who is a wet
blanket on all enjoyment, sees clouds in sun
shine, coffins in the candle, whose talk sets
your treth on edge, and in whose unexpres
sive eves you can find no trace of synqnithy
or feeling. The bony fingers should have
already warned you that to trust such a one
will entail on you disaster and defeat.
The Condescending Shake. —Have you
never felt it? How lightly the fingers
(sometimes three, seldom four, and never
the whole hand) drop into your palm; you
do the shaking, because the condescending
fingers lie passive in your grasp, and the
hand itself would tell vou, if it could, how
much it feels the ineifable sweetness of its
own disposition in even allowing you so
great a privilege. The same hand once
inaybe met yours with a grasp os genial as
your own, but you have remained station
ary, whereas Torn had a windfall, and
curious, isn’t it, to see cause aud effect? The
genial handshake has become more high
toned and placid, and the nervous grasp of
tiie fingers is changed for a gentle dropping
of tho digits in your outstretched hand.
The Fishy Shake. —Cold and clammy
strikes the hand you grasp, giving you a
feeling of dissatisfaction and disgust ns you
instinctively think of Uriah Heep, and,
under one pretext or another, furtively take
out your pocket handkerchief to wipe off
the moisture which seems to have passed
from the palm of the shaker into yours.
Possessed, as a rule, by those whose tempers
have gone wrong, whose milk of human
kindness has turned sour, or whose hidden
purposes it is impossible to fathom, tho
clammy hand frequently belongs to those
with whom it is not pleasant to deal. In all
fiction the ghastly hand is icy cold, or else a
fishy, clammy grasp—either will do to fill
up the harrowing detail. Even grim death
himself is supposed to touch us witli a similar
grasp. Take warning in time; never try
and perpetrate a joke with a man who has
a fishy handshake for a greeting.
The Mechanical Shake.—Who is not fa
miliar with the action of a pump handle as
it is pushed up and down, and in some hand
shakes the same principle is at work? There
is no soul in it. The lifting up and down of
the arm, which, when it is released, falls
dmvn flat against the owner’s side; the me
chanical utterance of a few common place
words spoken like an automaton, all
these tell you enough of the character of the
man who stands before you. You cannot
gather grapes from thorns, or else you
might expect miracles to occur again on
earth; and if you think there is any enthusi
asm below the surface in tho mind of tho
mechanical shaker, why, all wo ask is try
to force it out of him if you can.
Tho Gushing Shake.—The how-are-you
shake, with tiie how very large ami loud,
the sort of greeting that fairly takes your
breath away and makes you tear you will
te eaten tefore you know it —the jolly man
or the jolly woman, to whom life is a pleas
ure and whose existence is a series of de
lights, who wants everybody to teas
happy as he is himself, and whose flow of
spirits fairly infects you with some measure
of the same good humor; your usual
sober-mindedness mayte, comes 'to the
rescue just in time, however, aud you get
over the slight attack cf unwonted frivolty;
yet when the shaker has gone it almost
seems as if a ray of sunshine had shone on
you, and the day seems all the brighter for
The Dignified Shake. —Much affected by
the professions. You are, may te, im
mersed in some pursuit for the good of man
kind at large, or for your special town (for
we trust you are the respectable and belong
to somewhere); big with importance, you
stroll along, and so strolling you meet the
dignified shake. You hail thought of com
municating your opinions to the lady or
gentleman you have now met, hut—-one
touch of the hand aud away flies the fancy!
Like the frozen mutton of the Antipodes you
will want thawing in the warmth of friend
ship before you can talk to any one again,
and as the gushing shaker gave you life and
light, so the dignified shaker gives you a
douche of the cold water, which takes
away your energy and spirits for the day.
The Friendly Shake.— I The hearty grasp,
which, without being too violent either to
crush tho bones or to hurt tho fingers, is yet
warm enough, fervid enough, to tell you
that the shaker’s heart is right. Y’ou have
only to look into the eyes of such a one to
he able to read the honesty of purpose that
shines through the lamps of the soul: a grasp
that tells of a loving heart, in whose recesses
there are sympathies that can share the
woes as well as tiie joys of others; that can
afford to laugh at the narrow-minded, the
selfish and the wicked; but can offer to those
whom they respect the genial hand shake,
wherein every muscle, overy nerve, tells of
a desire to do ail they can te cheer the path
in life of those they meet and inspire within
their fellow-creatures’ hearts the knowledge
that there are among us still those who are
ready to offer at all times and seasons the
fervid grasp that tells of friendship, of fel
lowship and good will.
