I Thcro la DO room for doubt that tlm cause
of tho accident was In Ibo llrst place the stair

blockade of considerable magnitude occurred
shortly before tire fatal crush ut a point almost
midway between the anchorage and thp Now
York tower whoro tho promenade Is l narrowed
fiom UW foot to 18 foot by time cables coming
down to tho footbridge At iho head of hue
btairfc tho prouicnndo U ISl feet wide Thu
Iron banisters of the stairway narrow It down
to U uot In width Tlioro mire seven stops
rather low and then comes n landing of tIme
limo width of tho stairway nnd 8 feet 3 Inches
Jn Iho otherdirection lioyond this landing
mire seven moro steps Time bed below them Is
of stono for n foot or so amid then tho concrete
walk begins and widens out to time width of ito
proiimuudo above From tho top ot the stair
way across tire landing and to the bottom time
width Is only fourteen feat Persons slopping
on time stairway or just below It can by leaning
over time railing a little look Into time trcstlo
ways through which the curs are to inn Many
stop there nnd In tIme narrow stairway and ut
tint foot of It a blockade Is easily produced
In the bocond place lie accident ut thu stnlr
