CREW HELD TO BLAME.
:Ra road Commission Concludes Re
port of the Ogden Wreck.
Columbia. June 21.-The railroad
-::-r.rrnssion today finished its report
tc the Legislature on the wreck of
:_b Ogden special at Greenville. The
report fully sustains the position of
the railroad officials that the blame
att.ches to Engineer Hunter and
Condnctor Acker of the special for
iailure to observe the rule which re
gnired them to come into the Green
-lc ards full control. It finds this
rle is "in accordance with the best I
- mactice of standard American rail
ways, and that it is wise and best cal
uiatd to promote safety."
The report lets the crew down with
'is nnding: "It appears from the
sevidence that they had been fur
sished with the rules and had been
-:amined on and knew them, but sim
ply in this action at least misinter
: reted .them."
The report observes that the opera
-ter at Greenville should have made
veery effort to notify the yard crew,
ar.d as to the special crew says, "Rail
-oad companies should only employ
men thoroughly familiar with all or
s, rules, etc., concerning their
.The r.eport concludes with the rec
'ommendation that the railroads pro
-vide .a special messenger for the yards
.t Greenville, Spartanburg, Charles
ton, Columbia and like cities.
- Commissioner Earle filed a supple
-mental report in which he differs with
-she other members in several import
-ait -particulars. He contends that re
:gardless of the rules the Greenville
'rd employees should have had the
1racks clear, and they had ample in
:formation that the special was com
ing. He finds fault with the rules
-which do not provide for clearing a
yard in such circumstances as well
-as to require the special to approach
-der control. He dissents from the
-conclusion that Hunter was acquaint
ed with the road. He finds the Bun
combe street crossing at Greenville
.angerous and contends "that all
trains should be required to turn The
rrve approaching it under control."

until he had finially spent all his mon

"Everything in nature is fitted to do
u:e thing well and spend its whole
life doing it. You never hear of the

for a change. Each one knows its
place in the world and sticks to it,
and that is what boys must do if they
would accomplish great things.
"And remember always to keep
your ambition up to the top notch.
What ever you do, try to do it bet

this, every boy will have to work out
the problem for himself. There is
no fixed rule for deterr.iining the capa
