'Many com mercial and manufacturing concerns have come to the conclusion that the abuse of alcohol on the part of their employes is detrimental to their in terests, and they refuse the services of men addicted to this habit. Few companies have been courageous enough to refuse employment to men who use alochol moderately, because in this country, at least, it would appear to be an infringement on per sonal liberty. Accidents like the. ter rible one on the Delaware and Lacka wanna railroad on 4th July last can not happen on the Berlint. elevated railroad because every employe before going to work must , report to a 'trust worthy officer, who ascertains whether or- not he Is under the Influence of liquor. Tt were well if all, railroad companies adopted this- rule, for it would prevent much loss; o...
