Majors’ Rules

“The rules of Alexander Majors, one of the government contractors, were found to be of valuable service with every train that went out on the plains. No swearing or profane language was allowed, and no drinking of strong drink, or gambling under any circumstances. With such requirements faithfully adhered to, the men soon got to be quite orderly and under perfect control, and of course much better fitted to contend with the rough and trying experiences of such a trip.”
