tho opposlto direction on a parallel track.
C A. "Willard of Xo. 5M1 West Calianne a e

time to run its own length, even at a high
rato of speed.
This quickness of action Is designed, to
mako it impossible for a person to get lie
hlnd a car in time to be struck by the pole
Motormer. would be required to throw tho
rod into position before reiching a crossing
whenever a car is approaching from an op
posite direction on tho adjoining track.
The intents wro granted recently and
Mr. Willird is now negotiating with vnri
ous street rallwav sv stems to placo the de
vice in up on many lines.
The Inventor Is . retired lumber merchint.
in comfortable circumstances
In working on the device he has thought
less of possible emoluments than of saving
life and limb
Living In the "West End and using tho
cars constantly on comparatively long trip)
out to the county line, he has made a study
of the traffic. After witnessing several ac
cidents he became resolved to do something.
If rossible. to reduce the number.
'It Is estimated that about one-third cf
the street car accidents nre caused by peo
eon9'stepp!ng from behind one car in front
of another .Mr Wlllnrd has saved a clip
ping from The Republic on this subject, a
"I never como to a, Crossing to pass a
halting car headed In the other direction
but I Imagine I will run over some one.
"That is where the greatest dinger lies
for running down persons. Experienced
ones know that when they pass behind one
car and stop on the adjoining track a car
may be coming there. Not all are expe
rienced, however, and primarily moat of the
experienced folks are sometimes careless.
They make motormen sweat blood in keep
ing a sharp lookout."
I3y the ue of a tall rod, such a he lias
invented, Mr. Willard says these accidents
would not b" probable.
The rod would not be projected unless a
car Is anproachlng from the opposite direc
tion, and, knowing this, the public would bo
warned. The rod Itself would prevent a
person from crossing i-nraedlately Vhlnd
the car, where the danger is greatest, be
cause a view of the other track is entirely
shut off. Ilv the time a pedestrian circled
around to the end of the pole he might
catch a glance of tho other car, even if he
were not aware that the fact of the pole bc
intr extended meant that there was d m
ger. TO TAT FOR. EXPERIMENT.
Mr. Willard lat week opened negotiations
with the Transit Company to give Ills de
v ice a. trial.
"I have offered to pay the expense of the
experiment." said Mr Willard. "and feel
confident that a trial would show the en
tire practicability and virtue of this safe
guard. "Accidents of the kind which my Inven
tion would prevent occur evey few divs I
know of o many that I am deeply anxious
to be of some ue In preventing recurrences.

A. B. du Pont, vice president, and John

would enable the cars to make better sched

"It is of the utmost Importance to move
cars rapidly and regularly.
"To this end carefully calculated sched

owing to the loss of time in slowing down
on meeting cars from which passengers are I
