Robinson the editor of the Railway Age, said to the New York Tribune: The proposition which confronts the allwny employe is too plain a one. Does he want his wages paid iu 53- ent dollars? That is the whole ques- lou. Railway companies could not ncreasc their rates under free silver. Their expenses would certainly be in- reascd enormously—in the Interest harges on their gold obligations nnd n the price of materials and supplies. They would have less money to spend n wages. Employes would probably get fewer dollars than they do now. ;hey certainly could not get more— nd every dollar would only be worth ne-half as much. What has the railway employe to sain by free silver? That sums up the statement as brleC- y, as fairly and as thoroughly as we lave seen elm-lug: the campaign. ' ; Docs >e wnnt.hls wages paid iu 03-centdol- ars?" is the nub of the whole thing. Do other wage-earners, any more than he 800,000 railroad employes? Men are asking all sorts of questions. some relevant nnd most irrelevant— vhat is this and. what was that, and iow will it be when, and so on and so in. But when the web^of irrelevancy hat has been woven round this ques- ion is brushed nside it all comes down o the question for every wage-earner —"Do you want to bo paid in 53-ceut dollars?" That is the question the plain people of Abraham Lincoln's Ime would have asked—and answered. ;t-is the question which will be answered this year. EXPENSES' AND REVENUES. • General Manager Loree, of the Panhandle lines Is quoted as saying that •the Panhandle like nil other well managed railroads, at this time is making every effort to'make the expenditures come within the revenues. Every nook 'and corner is being searched, and where a position is found that Indicates a sinecure or even partially so, there is a head that drops Into :he basket. On a great system like the Panhandle, iu the course of years of brisk business a great many places will be filled that hare their uses at the time, but when dull business conies their duties are largely normal and coulfl b'e shifted to the shoulders of others without serious Injury to the service and this is being done as cxpedl- tlously as possible. There Is a blacksmith's helper here, a watchman there, an extra clerk in some other place all over the country tha* could be dls pensed with, and when the total Is made the figures are simply astonish Ing to even those familiar with the routine of the business of a big trunk lino." RAILROAD NOTES. Ed Peurose Is at work, again after a brief Illness. Roy Moore spent Labor Day hunting in the seven sections. Allies P.onder has returned to work after a continued illness.

George Fettip, John McMunri, Ed Hartmau and Ed Slgmund were flsh- ng Labor Day. Besides having a. Teat deal of sport, they caught a uum- ic-r of good fish. It will be noticed that most roads the ast week of August show more favorable earnings than In tne preceding weeks of the month, which. Is iu some measure due to the fact that the week overs two Sundays. Within the last three weeks, three lundred sound money clubs have been orined among the railway men .alone, vlth a membership of 120;000. Fully .tie-third of this enrollment is made iy of former Democrats. The work on the now repair tracks s progrcslsng very nicely.
