CAUSE OF BIG
SoU Ralls and Old Ties Gen
erally Blamed By
A croup of railroad men were discussing-
the cause of wrecks.
Imperfectly constructed roadbeds
were cited as the most prolific cause
of accidents. Tracks insufficiently
ballasted and the ties retained too
long In service cause, much of the
'"There ought to be 24 Inches of
rock ballast on all parts of the track
and the curves should be set In ma
sonry," said one man. "You hear
pecple comparing the losses from
wrecks In this country with those of
England to our disadvantage and they
do not stop to consider that there It
costs something like $50,000 to $250,
000 a mile to construct the lines and
they are practically set in masonry
all the way while In this country the
average cost of building a track Is
from $7,000 to $8,000 a mile. They
pay Interest on something like $68,
000 a mile but It costs less than $10,
000 a mile to construct. i
"Then take the matter of ties.
They are repla'ced at the rate of
about 5 per cent a year. That makes
the ties do service for an average
pediod of 20 years, but the guaran
teed life of a bernatlzed or treated
tie Is only rlne years. Qreat difficulty
Is experienced by the railroads in se
curing ties and In consequence they
have to do service too long. When
the tie Js rotten the spikes shove
Bldeways especially on curves and the
next thing is an accident due to
spreading of the rails.
"The heavy engines known as
'consolldators,' throw the curve
tracks out of alignment. Not dirt
iailast can possible hold the rails
and ties in place permanently. The
ties are driven down Into the dirt.
Maybe somebody reports the curve
out of alignment In time and maybe
It is found out by a train going on
"A former prolific cause of acci
dents has been the soft steel rails.
They are being replaced on the best
roads by the open forge rails. These
are much better, tougher and lees
liable to break 4n cold weather. The
old, soft rails where In use are liable
both to spread and to snap with the
"Lack of automatlo signals also
greatly increases the risks of rail
roading. The time will come when
they will be universally demanded.
They are costly but perhaps after all
not so costly as damage suits
Danger of Fire.
"When a passenger train has been
wrecked the greatest danger is from
the Pint son gus with which the cars
"There is always fire around a
wreck. It is Impossible to tip a car
over and burst it up without break
ing a as pipe somewhere. The cars
are dry as tinder, oiled and varnish
ed. Add the flowing gas and any con
tact with fire and almost in an in
stant a wreck is a solid masa of
flames. All cars should be lighted
by electrcity. It would not be whol
ly without danger, but it would be
far less than the present system.
"Properly ballasted tracks, elec
trically lighted cars, ties replaced
when they have reached the danger
point and the use of the open forge
rails would greatly lessen the dan
gers both for employes and passen
gers. Then. In Justice to the railways
-the government should protect their
right of way. Trespassing should not
be permitted Upon it. No one ever
trespasses on a line of railroad in
England, France and Germany. Here
in America thousands of tramps,
white, negro and Mexican are killed
every year while trespassing on the
right of way of the various roads.
Proper construction and operation of
the tracks and proper protection of
the property of the roads would at
least cut In half the number, the
swppalling number, of those killed
yearly in railroad accidents."

Chihuahua, Mexico, Oct. 17. A
large force of laborers are at work
. grading on the extension of the Sier

Casas Cirandes. It is stated that
about thirty miles of this grade are
completed, and that track laying will

rct competitor of the Kaunas City,
Mexico and Orient. Col. W. C.
Greene, who is understood to be the
principal owner of the Sierra Madre

Harrlman interests have acquired

commerce commission by Mayor
Behrman of this city, asking If the
Illinois Central railroad could furnish
free transportation to strike breakers

follows: "The law does not require
and the commission can not compel
railroads to give free or reduced
transportation to Indigent persons.
Railroads have the right to do so at
their option, and It la for them to de
termine whether, in fact, the persons
carried at free or reduced rates are
