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 Commission. 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 as follows: 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 pounds. 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 saved. 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 box. 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 “wire goods.” 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 Fink. 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 thin. The pile of |Ki| r* in tin* itks‘ was brought out, and all tin- facts and opinions Were read over They than Visited toe IS I*l Wa c*Ui!>itshutout of Mttotal. H*u’te 4 Cos, Mr. ttlrauaa, a mimawMit* of tka firm. 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 goods.” 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 skirt theory. 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 world. “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 discussed. “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 cation. 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 cauterized. 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 tain'd, this of Miration has never been equaled _________________ ♦ # ♦ * (liMMii** it!

The Condescending, the Fishy, the Gushing, the Disrnifled * and the Friendly Shake. 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 gleam. 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. A CHECKERED CAREE& An Englishman Who Has Disbursed Two Fortunes, and Expects to Make a Third. From the New York Bun. The Hon. Vincent Pool, of England, pass ed through this city recently, on route to the famous ruby fields of Burniuh. He is largely interested in the Anglo-French com pany that has secured the privilege of work ing these historic mines, and has resignod from tho English army to serve this com pany in an official capacity For years Burmah has been the chief ruby producing country in the world. The min ing, however, has teen confined to the sur face, nnd carried on in tho most primitive manner. The new company, with modern appliances, expects to increase the output cm innously. Mr. Peel is over six feet three inches tall, straight as an Indian; proportioned like a Hercules, he is, with his clour cut features, closely curling blonde hair and merry blue eyes, a singularly handsome man. His complexion, from exposure to many suns anil many climes, is as swarthy as an Arab’s. His career has been a remarkable one.
