Often Take Switch at Fifty Miles.
.\r to runnlng condltlons, it was
brought out in testimony at the inques*
started by Coroner Phalaa that lt was
lommon practice to run trains right up
to the point where the engine left the
r.tlla at a rate of fifty to slxty miles
an hour, whlle Henry Gardner, of N'o.
112 High street, New Haven. a flre
nian ln the employ of the company, de?
clared that he h_ul often been on ea*
gines that took the cross-over switch
where the train left the track at the
rate of even slxty mll.-s an hour.
"I knew George riark well," said
Gardner yesterday. "I ran wlth hlm
over thls llii" for elght months not long
ngo as his fireman. He whh one of the
mnrt careful and trustworthy engineers
in the service. an old hand at the busl- !
neee, and 1 can't believe that he ls to
blame. If there Ib any blame. lt must j
belong to some one else."
Coroner Phelan eonvened hls hearing
in the frelght house near the aOSSm et
the wreck to-day, and examlned Bart
1? y Gordon, a section foroman. who was
at work Oll the tracks at the polnt of
th<- wreck at the tlme, and John Allen,
? i.rldge tender. also an eyewitness.
Gordon testlfled that Clnrk'a traln
ran at reckiess speed. but aald also it
was a common practice, as did Allen. I
"The signals Indleated that the train l
should slow down," said Gordon before
the Coroner, "and I notleed that lt was '
comlng toward me at a apeed of bt- :
tween fifty and sixty miles an hour. I ;
ran toward it, wavlng my hat and ;
shoutlng. The engineer must have se-n '
me. as he. was leanlng out of the cab, j
but he pald no heed. The thought
flat-hed acroee my mind that he must
be dead. It is not unusual f"r trains
t.. approach the crosB-ovt-r at that
speed, but they usually shut off to take
the switch. The proper speed ls flfteen
?nili'.y an hour."
Saye Full Speed Is Common.
John Allen, the bridge tender. told
the Coroner that he was In the tender'a
Iback al the tlme, and saw the train !
dash by. H? sald that lt was common
practice for trains to go by at full

were no explosions, but as soon aa lt was
called they began.
Moulton H. Davle, of Weat Chester,
_*_?__', It would be shown, Mr Mlller said,
was one of the men who promoted explo?
sions in that state. I'avis formerly was
an executlve board member.
Mr Mlller read a letter In whlch Wlll?
lam Hernhardt, seeretary of a local unlon
la Clncinnatl. araa alleged to have aald
thal a police Judge in Clncinnatl had j
dlemteeed charges agalnst unlon offlclals
so oft.n that he declared: "Don't let
thla bunch come before mo agaln or IMI
have to do sornethlng."
In the letter, Mr Mlller sald. Rernhardt
asked that a "stranger be sent to Cln
elnnati to blow up the Harrlson avenue
when IfcMantgnl heeltnted ahout Mow
ing up Jobs in I'eorla. IU., according to
Mi Mlller, Kdwurd Smythe, business
ag-nt there, wrote: "Don't fear. I have
fri.-n.ls on the police force here. In fact,
1 control the 1 ..Uee."
Tne Btrongeat stuff ever Invented" ?
was the way Herbert 8. Hockin refer red j
to nitroglycerine when he bought lt to j
< arrv nn a eonaplracy. according to
Mlller. lt waa after dynamlte was found i
to be not 'strong' enough, sald the |
proaeCUtor. that the defendants, in De*
cember, lfrW. decided to use nitrogly?
cerine The detaUs, as ?et forth by Mr
Ortle E. McManlgal had been blowlng
up non-unlon Jobs wlth dynamlte. and
wae In Chlcaao In renponse to a tel>
jmrn from Hockin he went to Indlan
BpoliB. "We have decided to uee nltro,"
? ui- Hockin. and we're golng down to
Muncie to get a aupply "
' That b prettv dangerous stuff,' Baid
MoManlgal. "Yes, lt'e the strongeet BtufT
ever Invented," replled Hockin. They
went tO Muncie, where they met J. B.
MeN'atnara. On a pretext that they
wanted to expertment they bought from
J. W Kal?er 12*? quarts of nitroglycerine
They then rented a vacant house ln whlch
to hlde the exploalve.
N'elghbore who sav* the "dynamiters''
comlng and golng a. night, an express
drlver who hauled the exploslve and a
grocer who sold boxes are to testtfy,
sall Mlller, who charged that Muncie
for a time formed the headquarters from
whlch the "dynamltlng crew" started ?n
Its destructlve campnlgns.
