Hint ho ought. On n curvo ho
'might not sco the hcncl o his train,
and an oxporioncetl brakonian
or conductor on tho front car
might, by putting on brakes at tho
wrong time, do a great deal of
harm. A sudden check in push
ing a train would bo more apt to
throw tho ongino off than any of
tho cars. It would bo impossible
to tako a train ovor a four percent
grade at slow speed. The heavior
tho ongino tho less speed is need
ed to tako a grado.
Cross-oxnmined by tho Attorney
Goncral: It is not "a great deal
Bafor" to pull than to push a train,
but it is safor, not so much on
account of mechanical reasons as
becauso tho engineer has not so
much control of his train.
Mr. Walsh, tho defendant, tes
tified: Was born in England, '62
yoara of ago; had boon nulronding
and u orking on steamers since ho
was 17 years of ago; drove pas
sougor tiains on tho Kahului rail
road before taking employment
on tho Wailuku plantation. Wit
yncss gave an elaborate expla
nation of how it was imprac
ticable to dispense with pushing
cars on tho plantation railroad,
llo was in tho habit of running
down tho one-half percent grade
upproaching tho culvert, and as ho
reached tho foot of tho ascending
grado putting on ono-fourth steam;
followed tho same proctico on tho
occasion of this accident; about 80
feet from tho place whore tho en
gine went off ho felt a lurch and
put on tlio steam brake; boforo ho
had timo to revorso tho ongino it
wont over on its side. Unci been
working on tho construction of
tho road for a month boforo run
ning on it; did tako into consider
ation tho newness of tho road;
discussed tho number of cars that
could bo hauled, with Mr. Wells,
and witnoss thought ton cars
would bo about right, but Mr.
Wells gavo him no dofiuito in
structions; witnoss was not parti
cular, as ho folt it was a matter
for his own judgment whon ho be
gan running; found there was no
diiliculty in taking fifteen cars,
and sitico tho accidout no change
had boon made in tho number.
Ho consideied tho speed whon tho
nccidont happened wan six to ten
miles; had ho known tho car
biakes woro on ho would nothavo
exempted to go up tho grado, but
would have whistled off brakes,
rovorsed and taken a f rosh start;
two brakes on going down tho grado
would not luivo muilo much diff
oronco, but if on when steam was
put on ho would notice it at once,
and that was what happened. Wit
ness then gavo details of tho ac
cident and his actions on tho oc
casion. Whon the ongino was
righted thoro was nothing found
wrong with hor, not ovon a nut
was started. Ho called tho atten
tion of all on tho spot to tho fact
that tho steam brako wus on and
tho throttlo closed. Would not
tako an oath on whether ho blam
ed tho road to Mr. Cartor or
not, did not romembor but might
havoflonoso; was not uwuro that
ho had been careless in any do
greo,his greatest surprise was whon
whon ho arrested for ninnslnught
or; sinco tho accident ho had not
changed tho manner of his work
on tho road.
Cross-examined: Witnoss said
that after his committal in Wailu
ku, Mr. Howoll had apologized to
him for tho ovidonco ho had given
at tho coronor's jury; did not bo
iievo ho Bpoko to Mr. Cartor as
that witness had testified, but
would not swoar ho did not. Ho
did not always push tho cars at that
plnce, ho pulled them whenever
practicable; never put on stoam
until tho culvert is passed, as that
is whoro tho grado begins; have
not tho least idea how tho accident
odemred;- tho road was good at
that placo so far ns ho know, if ho
know it was bad ho would not
run ovor it; had been driving
locomotives for ton mouths, wns
previously a firoman; pay was
SCO a month, but ho made about
$80 by ovortimo and (Sunday
This closed tho caso for tho
piosocution, and Judge Carter
desired that argumont should
proceed. Mi. Kinney thoroforo
began his closing address for tho
detonso to tho jury a few minutes
to 6 p. m.
Attor tho Attornoy General
closed for tho prosecution, Judge
Cartor delivered his charge, tho
jury retired, returning in about
three minutes with a unanimous
verdict of "not guilty."
