Catastrophe Would Have Resulted
iBIg Four through freight train No,

Cleveland and St. Louis, suffered a
serious wreck In tho local Erie yards
Just west of tho union depot at 5:45
o'clock Tuesday morning. Three

Had the wreck occurred three cars
further back on the train, It Is very
probable that there would not be any
steam shovel shop or union depot In
Marion today. Just at the rear of
the last car wrecked was two box
cars heavily loaded with dynamite
In all there was about twenty tons
of dynamite on the train.
That the wreck was not of moro
serious nature Is probably due to
the particular caution which engineer
Mahoning who was in charge of the
train, oxerclsed upon passing through
the local yards.
Customarily tho through freights
pass tho union depot and through
the Krle switches at a speed of
about thirty miles an hour. It has
often beon predicted by local rail
roaders that a terrible wreck would
occur at this point. Owing to tho
heavy fog, tho engineer was feeling
his way along atj the rato of about
iv iiiiil-3 uu num.
When the train was passing over
the switch frogs connecting the Cin
cinnati division of tho Brio to the
yard tracks, the fourth car from tho
euglno caught on a switch point and
as a result there waa a general pile
up. As to Just what caused the
wreck Is not definitely known. Hod
the switch been out of order the en
gine could not have passed safely
through It, It Is tho general opinion
of the trainmen that a brake beam on
tho car whloh first left the rails
caught on the switch point and thus.

MARION GAS COMPANY
Scored Hard for Requiring
Deposit of Ten Dollars
Property Owners Want Their Money
Deposited Where (They May

Whether tho Marlon Gas com
pany has tho right to rcqulro non
property ownors io deposit jjilo to
insure tho company against possl.
bio loss Is a mutter which Is soon
to bo decided by the city council.
At tho regular meeting of the
council hold Monday ovonjng, thero
wero a numbor ot citizens present
protesting against the plan ot tho
Soveral tncmbors of tho ' council
expressed tho belief that under its
frnnchlso tho company has no right
to make such a requirement. Coun
cilman Gorton, after expressing
this bellof, made a motion to refer
the matter to tho city solicitor,
and street light nnd gas commlttco
for investigation. Councilman Wil
son, who also said ho does not
think the company has a right to
make any such requirement, sec
onded tho motion and it was car
ried. "No othor business man or com.
pany has" tho right to rcqulro any
deposit from his patrons and I
don't sec how tho Gas company
can do it." said Mr. Wilson.
A. K. rattcrson. former captain
of police, was the first citizen 10

tho Gas Company is discriminating
by neglecting to require a deposit
from somo of Its patrons.
"If you find tho company can
do this under Its franchise, tlioro
Is another question I want to ask"
said Mr. Patterson.
"Wo ask them what security
we get for our money and the
answer is that when the company
is through hero we can dig up
their gas mains and get j30 worth
of pipe," said William Qralg. They
promise us four per cent, interest.
Mr. Craig says ho understands
that tho company has already se
cured $3,000 f too people's monoy
through these deposits,
'Somo of us offered tho company
security in.placo of tho $10 and
it was refused," said Matt Por.
tor. "If they have a right to my
money, I want it deposited whero
I will know it's safe. I don't want
to trust It with them."
City Solicitor Donlthen said th'at
this Is a question which comes up
annually. Ho says ho understands
thnt th6 company mudo this ruling
after having beon urged to do so
by property ownors. who did not
want to bo hold liable for gas
bills Incurred by their tenants. Ho
said that if thero Is any discrim
ination It should bo Inyostgatcd.
