CAUSE STEEL TIES
Wreck of Pennsylvania Flyer
Believed Due to New Device
MAY MARK ITS EARLY DOOM
Report of Conductor That Rails Spread
Inadvertently Permitted to Be
PiLsburg. I'll., Feb. 2T Alt Uoii.mli the
Pennsylvania railroad continues to in
Hst, in its .-tatcineiits for iho public,
that tin; wreck of the IS-hour Ilier near
.Johnstown on Friday night was caused
liy a broken rail hunger, the opinion is
almost firmly fixed ia railroad circles
thai tho s:eel tics were to blame.
Railroad men who examined tho dam
age to the roadbed assert this. So does
the conductor of the Ilier. And that
the company itself leans to the same
view is shown by the fact tlia- it has
demanded that the Carnegie company
make good on its claims for the new
4 uliii'lir So l(-ortt'il.
Still another indication that the Penn
sylvania otlicials. far from believing
the wreck was an act of Providence,
as they profess in public, privately
blame the ties is the fact (bat Conduc
tor M. V. Follies of the Ilier yesterday
reported the cause as follows:
"Cause of wreck, spreading rails."
This message was wired to Pittsburg

little signal tower on the motmtaiiisid
near the scene of ibe crash. 1; was in
advertently allowed ;o become public.

It is-believed that the wreck of the
Ilier signals the passing of tho steel
tie, yet only in the experimental jit age.
Its use by the Pennsylvania was at the
so:icita ion oi tne maker, i tie com
pany consented to try the ties on sonic
of its heavy mountain grades. Mineral
Point curve, known a tho most dan
gerous on tho mountain, was one of
those so equipped. Hut the bolts by
which the heavy rails were attached

who were injured in Friday's wreck
