Charles R. Pratt Tell* of Failure to
Protect Passenger Elevators.
Charles K. Pratt, an engiriw of this city, who
♦.jj, given much attention to the safeguarding of
«l*vators, has written the following for Th? Tnb
TM? year has broken all records In the riumb»r
m r slrratar accident and in the number of people
Injured or killed. '1 !!«•!••' are two general causes
f'nr this record: First, old *»levatorf«. (iuine of which
jJ^llßtnr ■ .'*. are wearing out : second, iiicrease.i
drniar.u an<l competition have ;uit some very in
irior s"* s <2s.is?eroux eWstors on th* 1 market.
Tiiere. are four classes "f elevators: Steam, now
almost obsolete; b»lt. us»"i] only lor cheap freight
" r Vice hrdraullc. for hig'l >ipe«Hl passenger ser
\ir*> and «>W-tric. for a!! kinds of elevator eervice.

Inr* Some type* of electric elevators are as sal.?
■ s the hydraulic, but they range all the way from
that gr*':' to the most dangerous and unreliable
d*v'?e« that ever operated, at: elevator car.
T*ere «r<» tb« following geaoral causes for eie
ritor accidents: Fir^t. poor detijni: second, poor
vorkmanfliip: thirii. }H-«i«r material: fonnh. lack of
lortecti^n. and fifth, careless operation.
The Bureau of Huildinps is responsible for design.
workmanship and material: the inwmacQ c<«m
«arjies for all that and for das lack of insp«-<;
tior. and the owner i? respoosiMe for . very thing
•j-^c er«i»t»"S!t bumbuß about most elevators is a
device on the car culled a saft^tv. that is auppos«d
-0 protect the passengers by aai>ly stopping the
car if it falls or goes too fast. Borne of these de
we** are i:ever fa condition to work at all. some
Blip-- work under possible condition.", some would
uot'ttop the car if they di.l work, ar.d other* stop
a car so suddenly as to injure the posser ?ers<.
Curiously enough, no bureau uf building*, insur
ance 1 wanna architect. builder. er«r»nf'«-r or owner
has ever scon known to specify what a safety .le-
ots a car should do when it does work. And
wt. If if Is possible to have a device on a car that
mill positively and asfelv stop it from falling or
colr.g too fast, what more important function ia
there about an elevator to specify? £uch elaborate
oe\iees as air cushions. etc.. costing as l-.iph as
$S.(tno an elevator, ha- •■ profited by ihes<» inade
cuate car paf«-ti*s.
For na-y year* the city of Philadelphia, reccg
r ,' T .- c the 'unreliable quality of car "safeties." ha*
mnpelled owners of buildlnies to install air
ruFbione °r other *q'iajly exper.sive and troubie
«ome dev.ces cr. *very passenger elevator. Ar.d it
Is cr.ly this morth that Philadelphia discovered a
-„-«■-• that «-as perfectly reliable, and officially
authorized it? us* without other expensive auxiliary
»{etv devices being pro.idt-d <->n Uw sum* car.
The writer •--• a larpe ::cw alevator plar.t in
this city the test beiryr conducted by an expert of
the elevator company that installed th* elevator*,
•nd found that the elevators might tall tbe wrbole
height of th« buiMlr.g before the safeties woul.l
»-ork aatOßßatieallT. that m<.«=t of the device* for
Th« operator to work the safety by were inopera
tive, and when t.ri safety sraa made to work with
a. lf>ad equal to a csr full of passengers it did not
rrop the car »* all. This plain had been accepted
by the Bureau of Build:r.|?-s and by the. instirar.ee
Another re-er.t installatjcn of the best make of
♦levat.Tr in nn» of the fir.-st buildir.cs in New- York
■was tested the other day by the Bureau of BulM-
Jejs. Thy elevator builders objected to harirc th«
ctt safeties tested at tbe full down spfd; the
Safld:r.gs inspector Irnisted upon a full M»*f<l te«t.
an* 1 o" three elevators the ropes tiyit oi>*Tate«i the
car Faf«ejr were cut lr. t»o.
It is not fair to restrict romrw't'tiT. by «pe<^rjinK
any particular makes of any devices fo«- ary pur
jKiie, ' bin if a panirular re«ult Is desired, then
that result enould be sp*-e-ifie<i. An er.i?ir.e«>r wouM
rot simply order "an engine." without spf-<:if> ing
)•« rise gencml character and its duty. Is it less
absurd to accept anything in the s'.iap* of a safety
«Je\ii-* without jriklr.s it ci^t f.in:- reasonable
specification ?
c hould not an elevator car safety meet these
four simple conditions? d> Cfierate at «ces f of

Road Treated for "Auto" Cup Race
Makes Trouble for 1 1 on. inches.
Crude oil spread ,j., ,-,, main street of th«
villae* of Hernpstead, Lang Island, forth* au
tomobile rn.-e next Saturday is causia* no end
of trouble for the housewives of that town. They
nave '1i«.... that nearly every bouse in th»
village has acquired a fine assortment of grease
ri<-ts on carpetF. vugs ar.d furniture. The oil was
lut on the Fuiton-st. roadbed tout Thursday,
ani thai evening, after the Democratic parade,
the trouble began, for nearly every man, woman
and child in K«*n-ps?ead had \valk«"l over th»
oily road.
Several of the finest houses In Hempstead are
along the road, among them that of Walter E.
Frew, the vice-president of the on Exchange
Bank. In his home, it is said, a number of
Oriental rugs are the worse off for the nil. At
the corner if Fulton and Washington st*. Is the
home and office of Dr. Louis Xott Lame hart.
Patients have left their footprints behind them,
and he is mourning over a carpet to be cleaned.
So general Is the da mace that a number of th*»
victims talk of damage suits, bur are unde.-iaed
as to whether or not they should be brought
■gainst the American Automobile Association
or the Board Of Supervisors of Nassau County.
Even horses that an driven over the oily ur
face of the road suffer, and the stablemen are
nearly at the point of striking, because of the
extra work that it requires to clean th» horses'
legs, as the oily splatter sticks like clue. At
the drujr stores of Hempsrejii a ar^neral demand
has l.e«>n created for Ding fluid, but as yet
nothing seem* to remove the spots. The odor
•if the oil has also aroused the ire of •'- vil
las«»rs. Th» people of Hompstead are becoming
angry over the case, and an Indignation meeting
may be h<»M.
