THE YARDMASTER'S T1L8TIMOKY.
Evander Calwell, the vardmaster said:
Have been employed by the company
three years. For the last six months as
ysrdmaster at the Junction, My business
is to make up trains. Wanted some cars
from the norib io the south side. Went to
the telegraph office and inquired where! the
Pacific exp'reMi was. The operator, Hen
derson, tapped the instrument as though
taking a message, and said She is forty
fire minutes late now. He save nie no
written message. I tiien went down ten or
fifteen rods to where Jones' ebgine was and
told him to take those cars over to the

then jumped off his engine—it was standing
still, and walked back on tbe other side of
the main track to give some instructions to
the switchman. I saw the switchman down
the track in front of the yard engine, signal
to go ahead, and Jones moved down on the
main track. When I requested Jones to go
out he did not decline. He took his watch
and said: "Eighteen minutes I think 1
can make it." I looked at my watcb. Can't
now eay what time it was. Heard tbe Pa

express when it. was about forty rods or

time I have before sending the yard engine
on to the main line. I do not know of any
time when there has been apparent danger
of collision. Have never had any trouble
or controversy with Jones about switching.
Heard of his having quarrels with switch
men. He is very obstinate and contrary
and in the habit of disputing about time.
