chant merchant charges him a larger price
for goods sold t han he would charge
a. customer who paid cash, or
-whose credit is perfectly good.
The railway supply car furnishes
him whatever he may need at act actual
ual actual cost, with 10 per cent, added.
T:his 10 per cent apparent profit,
is practically consumed by the
cost of delivering the supplies.
The railway company does not
run the car for the purpose of
trade, nor does it run it -with the
purpose of expectation of making
any profit on the goods furnished
7:he person in charge is never
authorized or knowingly permitted
by the company to sell goods to
any person. He can only furnish
supplies to employes, who are at
liberty to obtain them from the
supply car or elsewhere, as they
may see proper. If any articles are
sold by the person in charge of
' this car, he does so in open viola violation
tion violation of instructions. By this ar arrangement
rangement arrangement the laborer is enabled
to make full time, and to get the
necessaries of life at smaller cost
than he could otherwise do. The
advantage to the company is that
its large army of men. scattered
over 2000 miles of road, is kept
close in hard, constantly at their
work, and always ready for any
emergency that may arise.
The Plant System has in its
-employ about 1500 hands, and
this large force keeps in safe con condition
dition condition the 200 ra!e of track. It
is necessary that these laborers
should be thoroughly disciplined,
and always at their posts. Jr. of often
ten often becomes necessary t- mass
Jthem at some given point, like the
Hurricane trestle when that was
destroyed by a derailment, or like
the Auciila bridge when that was
burned. In such cases these
hands are gathered up, together
with their implements, including
cross-bars, axes, shovels, jack jack-screws,
screws, jack-screws, saws and the like, from a
distance of fifty to ico mile.?, and
are brought together so that the
work may be promptly done with-
out unnecessary delay to the bust- ;
ness of the country. In order to ;
have these laborers where their
services can be conirr anued at any :
moment, they are furbished homes,
rent free, by the company on the
line of road, and the company is
now furnishing thtm. supplies
practically at cost.
