The president of a street railway
company in St. Louis recency told
an inquirer that he wanted '-steady
and sober men, and only ihat kind."
lie considers even moderate drink drinking
ing drinking a bad habit, and will not toler tolerate
ate tolerate it. He thus defined his policy:
"My foremen and others who
have charge of men are repeatedly
cautioned to be careful when men
report for duty. -If a man shows
the least sign of having taken a
drink or two, or does not appear
steady in every way, he is right
then and there asked to step out."
This is purely a matter of busi business
ness business with him. He is not seeking
the moral improvement of his em employees,
ployees, employees, but the safety of the prop property
erty property interests that he represents.
"We must do this in self protec
tion," he explained, "for let it once
become known that we tolerate
drinking,and demoralization would
soon ensue among the whole lot,
while every accident that happened
would be credited by the public to
the drunken antics cf our men, and
we should then be compelled to
pay 'every claim made against us."
This is another illustration of
