of the injured. Not less than eight of 1

Confused About Trains.
According to the assertion of Conduc-
tor Boyer, his car was lo have passed
two other trains before the canyon was
entered and when Motorman Sherman
j left the No. 2 switch, a half-mile west
of the canyon, he questioned Sherman re-
gardlng the plans. Upon being nssured .
that they had passed two cars, west- (
bound, Conductor Boyer allowed his mo- i
lorman to proceed, feeling that perhaps
hf. himself had overlooked the other train '
while taking fares. I
Apparently, neither motorman heard i
the blast of the whistles which are
mounded as the cars near the mouth of
the canyon. At the sharp curve 100 fect i
west of the first bridge, the packed cars !
crashed together with terrible force, there 1
being a sharp grade at this point. 1

back into the car because of the crowd

JOHN M. SHERMAN, mo
torman on one of the
wrecked Ogden Rapid Transit
trains, who was perhaps fa
persons on his platform, was able to
jump hack into the car and escape in
jury. The few persons injured in his car
were cut and bruised by timbers and fly
ing wreckage. Neither car left the rail,
although the west-hound car was raised
hich from its front trucks and the two
ears remained securely telescoped to
gether. Immediately after the accident, officers
of the sheriff's office and the Ogden po
lice department took charge of the situa
tion at the mourh of the canyon and suc
ceeded in preventing further accidents
which might have resulted from the con
gestion of traffic on tho narrow road
way, The report of tho accident quickly
reached the picnic grounds at the Jler
mltage, where several thousand people
were assembled, and was circulated about
the city. Hundreds who had relatives or
friends in the canyon hurried to the hos
pital to learn the Identity of the Injured.
John R L.ewis and R. B. Porter of the
hospital directory, aided by attaches of
the institution, handled the situation very
successfully posting a complete list of
the- Injured on the outside of the build
ing as soon as one could be prepared.
Line Quickly Cleared.
Within thirty minutes after the two
cars had crashed together the wrecked
trains were towed to the lirst siding west
of the canyon entrance and traffic was
restored on the line. Shocked by the
tragedy, nearly all of the persons on the
upbound car returned to the city. The
report of the accident had a depressing
effect upon the thousands gathered at
the picnic grounds.
Superintendent Kline declared this
evening that he had as yet mado no ef
fort lo ascertain the cause of tho col
lision. He said he had been busily en
gaged in clearing the line for traffic In
order that the big crowd at the canyon
might be brought safely to the city.
'"All of the men who were not in
jured in the accident are busy getting
the cars in operation again ahd 1 have
made no effort to place the responsibil
ity," said the official. "Tomorrow morn
ing I will make an effort to learn . wJio
is to blame for this accident."
Newspaper and telegraph office's In both
Salt Lake and Ogden were besieged last
night with people who had friends and
relatives In Ogden whom they thought
might have been caught in the wreck.
Members of the Elks lodge, which was
holding a celebration in Ogden canyon
at the time of the accident, were readily
Identified Inst night on the streets by
reason of the badges they wore. The lo

Imminent even before the crash of the
two cars. Mr. Stanley last night, In
speaking of the accident, said:
We were silting right where wo

STEPS FROM TOP OF

notices and the demonstrator proved his
ability to control it at nil times.
Although Vescov! asserts that the drop
could have been made In three seconds,
he descended slowly in order to exhibit
tho power of the brake, and took possibly
live minutes to make the descent. Tho
sidewalks and street below swarmed with
persons watching the Inventor. When
lie reached tho fifth floor he stopped and
unfurled an American flag. This act re
ceived the applause of the crowd. As
his feet touched tho ground, F. Anselmo.
editor of the Italian Gazelle, grasped his
hand and congratulated him. Tho curi
ous who crowded around the Italian inventor-
when ho reached the sidewalk,
plied him with questions, and Vescovi
cheerfully answered as many Inquiries as
The now fire escape consists of a steel
ribbon band wound upon a cylinder
about the size and shape of an alarm

The invention was patented September
7, 1012, and Vescovi says he lias a num

patents pending. Ho has exhibited his

and Denver. Colo., and other cities. He
has three styles, differing In width of
