The Right Word.
There is a wurious species of writers
on railroad subjects, some of them ed
itors of railway journals, who express
themselves as if they had never heard
of a loooinoUve engineer. Their pens
move with contempt and anger when
the nnsizestion la made that men who
manage locomotives have the right to
be called engineers. The snob writers
mention enginemen, runners and en
sine runner, but never locomotive
engineers. They shudder to call any
one an engineer who does not oarry in
bis pocket a college graduate's diplo
ma. Moved by this snobbish sent!
ment. some railroad companies call
their engineers "enginemen," but it
does cot appeal to publio taste. The
American public has decided that the
title of the man running is engineer,
and nothing that envy or. petty jeal
ousy can do will ever take that appel
latlon away from the popular tongue!
