se had any proof of any wrong-doing bj
es Mr. Evans in connection with the disal

have presented it during the cours*
of some of the many investigations
ill which have been conducted of the dis>1

ing the time Mr. Evans was demanding
id of the court a final judgment in con.h.

e, embers of the past at this late day
er the only effect of which could be tc
tie bring Mr. Evans into unpleasant nout
toriety again. There ought to be ai
p- end at some time to charges and ac
a- cusations. We presume the attorney
general urged all the proof against
Mr. Evans which he had. The attorre
ney general himself in one case endec
te the prosecution, and in the other ?
he jury of another county wrote a verVe
diet of acquittal.
It would have been far better foi

he ished it then and there and put ar

not see fit so to do. A long and ted
Qn ious course was followed, with ver:
^ e little result. That, however, has noth
st- ing to do with the matter in hand.
Mr. Evans is a citizen of Newberr;

f ; of both Jin^s to twenty hours, indicates R
a a tendency away from the old speed

- improved roadbeds, stronger bridges,

- tougher rails the roads are in a bet(1
ter position to run fast trains with |
r safety than when most of the limiteds |
e and flyers were instituted.
a Most speed records on American
a railways in fact, were made under less
f! secure operating conditions than now
s j exist. A Lehigh Valley train in 1897
r covered 44 miles at the rate of 80
miles an hour; a Burlington train in
1902 ran 15 miles at a 98-mile gait, and
- a train on the Plant system in 1901
3 accomplished the remarkable feat of I
running five miles at the rate of 120:
Y miles an hour. As far back as 1848
the Great Western, of England, ran
a train 53 miles at a speed of 68 miles
Seventy miles an hour is the maxit
mum speed allowed on French railt
ways. It is more' a theory than a con- j
i dition as respects trains on regular j
) schedule in any country. The Penn- i
; sylvania's and the Central's Chicago!
1 flyers average under 60 miles an hour.
The fastest German train, running betwen
Berlin and Hamburg, maintains
a speed of only 55 miles an hour, and
English schedules are but little faster.
Does a public demand exist for 18,hour
and other high speed trains?
Railway managers represent that it
does, and the recent wreck on the Bur
