The day of the negro porter; the
gentleman who brushes your coat and
breathes a soft hope in your left ear that
the tip will be large, has nearly passed
on transcontinental lines in the opinion
of many "local railroad men. Recentjy
it was neml-offlolally announced that the
Union Pacific would soon dispense with
Its negro porters and employ In their
places white men at an average Increase
of $12.60 a -month In salary, tips to, be
rigorously frowned on.
In the east the annoying train huck
ster of popcorn and yellow cased liter
ature has been relegated by the Burling
ton "to" his proper place, the depot plat
form, and his absence in the crowded
trains has brought many blessings, on
the heads of the head officials from the
traveling publlcJ U- , Ui
- The-eomplaint-of ; the-enerat. public
against v the - service '-.afforded them by
porters ' and waiters on through trains
has been steadily increasing but when
the railroad men themselves began to
make complaint and commercial and pro
fessional travelers lodged long and de
tailed kicks with operating and car
service officials then the trouble for the
negro servants began to brew, r Men
connected with car service, , especially
with dining car equipment, say that the
wail about poor service and Independ
ent help has increased Immensely since
the tens of thousands or tourists and
settlers began to make the overland
trip, and many of the traveling pas
senger agents who are constantly on the
road have added their complaint, to the
general cry, . :t:, '
One sufferer writes the car superln
"After a four days journey over your
line and after constant- annoyances I
write you. Have you no civil waiters?
Do you pay them anything, or do your
patrons pay your -wages besides their
faret Can a man get a. decent meal on
your diners if he pays double jrlce If
he don't tip the waiter 40 cents on the
dollar? I am Ignorant, please enlighten
me." ,! ', .
Another bounces Into the office and
relates that after expending $2.80 on his
dinner orders he got less and received
much scantier attention than his neigh
bor who started In by giving the waiter
half a dollar and only ordered 75 cents'
worth of edibles; e
Then a claim agent arrives and tells
how h-aw -a- hungry - crowd neglected
for half an hour while one man lingej-ed
over his dessert because the waiter was
tipped not to let the crowd In to annoy
the little man.

wage than they have been receiving
heretofore. The remaining 10 per cent
represent the employes belonging to the
Amalgamated Association of Iron, Steel

ment between the corporation and the
association prevents the wages of these
men being reduced before the agree

ranges from 6 to 30 per cent, and will
mean a saving of more than $1,000,000

The reason for this Is very plain. Real
estate is looking up. A large portion
of the transactions made during the
ween were small homes, ranging from
$1,000 to $1,500 .each, , There is a very
large call for this class of property at
present, and real: estate ' dealers say
they can sell twice as much as they did

''There is an unusual demand for
small homes,," say Rountree ft Diamond,
"and we have no doubt that the sales
which were made during the week could
be doubled If we had a larger - list of
properties..- we see that the committee
having charge of the accommodations

that Portland needs more hotels la be
