>From Barry's post on 1891 chophouse slang:

When the hasher is _tipped to hurry an order_ he tells
the  cook to "railroad here,"

Of course, this could simply mean, "When a hasher is told ..." or some such.

Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have
found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be
imposed upon them.
