Williams was friend of Lafay
ette, by whom he was named. But
he says he's still a kid, and danced
a jig just to prove it.
The Burlington railroad has
fixed the blame for the Western
Springs wreck. And the fixing
is interesting.
The Burlington finds the engi
neer of the fast mail was to blame
because he could not stop the
train he was forced to run at 70
miles an hour to be on time.
And it also finds the flagman
of the Limited to blame because
he did not walk far enough back
on the track, through the fog, to
warn the mail.
Curiously, the Burlington does
not lay any blame on itself. It
says nothing about why two ex
press trains were being run only
12 minutes apart.
The history of that fast mail is
interesting, too. It isn't long since
the mail contract was offered by
the government. It was worth
$1,000,000, and the competition
"between the Western railroads
was keen.
The Burlington won, which ex
plains why it was running two
express trains 12 minutes apart,
and why the engineer of the mail
was running 70 miles an hour
through a fog.
