June 2, 1888 Saturday  Tough  Travelers on the DSS and A who know the kind genial face of Conductor Harry Johnson, will be sorry to learn that he has resigned his position. The resignation to take effect the last day of this month. Mr. Johnson will easily be remembered as the conductor who so terribly blistered his h and s while clinging heroically to the icy brakes of the runaway passenger train near L'Anse last winter. In consequence to the injury of his h and s he was obliged to "lay off" about three weeks. In paying Johnson his salary for that month, the railroad company unjustly deducted the time he thus lost. This failure on the part of the company to recognize the nerve and heroism of a faithful employee has been severely critized.  -Hancock Herald  The above if true, is not flattering to the company. Mr. Johnson "stuck to the brakes" because the air brakes refused to work, because the rolling stock of the road was in such condition that the engine could not hold the train on the down grade. It is not to the credit of the road to so treat an employee.   DSS and A Passenger
