tion that . the innovation was decided
upon, because it was felt that some
travelers' might actually feel hurt , if
they were not etlowed to dispense little
gratuities to the employes wlio served
them well. But the ' tipping evil had
grown so rapidly and so much discrim
ination was noted on the part of the
'red caps" that It was decided to break
a new trail and remove the whole sys

Notices telling of the ' abolition of

it had got so that when a woman
with three children and, four suitcases
came Into the . depot, the porters would
let her find the ; way to the trains at
best she could, because they didn't see
sny chance of a tip," said an official of
the terminal company today, , "But If a
taxi drove up and a well-dressed man
with a tiny suitcase should alight, he
would be pounced upon before he got
to the door. . His grin would be taken
from hlra and he 'would feel compelled
