THE RAILROAD RESPONSIBLE. Terdlct of the Coroner*« Jury in the New York Tunnel Disaster ln<|ue*t. Nltw YoiiK, March 6.—The coroner's in quest into the cause of the accident hi the tunnel of the New York Central rail road in this city on the morning of Feb. 'JO, and which cost the lives of six persons, wan concluded last night by the jury returning a verdict. They find that the danger signals were properly set at the time the New York, New Haven and Hartford train passed them but believe that owing to the density of the atmosphere in the tunnel at the time, Engineer Fowler, of the New Haven train, did not clearly see the signal. They also find that the officiais of the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad company are immediately re sponsible for the loss of life because of the failure of Engineer Fowler to distinguish the danger signal and thus causing the collision with the shop train; and further, that the officials of the above company are responsible for the death by suffocation ' aud burning of two of the victims of the wreck, caused by the upsetting of a car stove which set fire to the wreck. They recommend that the legislature compel the New York Central and Hudson Hiver Railroad company to make addi tional openings in the tunnel, and also that two men lie employed in the signal cabs in the tunnel instead of one as at pres ent. They further recommend that a uni form rate of speed be adopted for all trains passing through the tuunel. Coroner Levy announced that he would issue a warrant for the officers uud directors of the New York, New Haven and Hart ford Railroad company and have them placed under bonds to await the action of the grand jury. Engineer Fowler aud Operators McManus ami Breen will be re leased from their bonds. Among the railroad officials who will lie arrested today are Directors Chauneey M. Depew and William Rockefeller. The others are: Charles P. Clark, president; K. M. Reed, vice president,; O. M. Shep hard, gotleral su perin tendent; W. D. Bishop, jr., secretary; W. I* Squire, treas urer; H. M. Kocherkperger, comptroller; Charles T. Hempstead, general passenger agent; Charles Rockwell, general freight agent, officers, all of New Haven. The oilier directors who are equally liable with the officers to prosecution, are : Joseph Park, George N. Miller and Wil son G. Hunt, of New York city; K. H. Trowbridge, of New Haven; William D. Bishop and Nathaniel Wheeler, of Bridge port; Henry C. Robinson and Leverott Braiuard, of Hartford; Henry S. Ixte, of Springfield, Mass. President Clark and Vice President Reed are ex-officio mem bers of the board of directors. It will be noticed from this list that thir teen of the persons whom Coroner Levy wants live in Connecticut. This brings up an interesting question of a political aspect. If these persons re fuse to come to New York to answer to the complaint against them it will be necessary at one stage of the proceedings to secure requisition papers for them from Governor Hill. But Governor Hill having refused to re cognise requisition papers from Governor Bulkeley it is certain that Governor Bulke ley will refuse to honor such papers from Governor Hill. If these thirteen persons do not choose to oome to stand trial therefore, it is en tirely likely that they con stay away in perfect safety. But the five New Yorkers, including Mr. Depow and Mr. Rockefeller, twenty-five time« a milUonadre, will have to get their bail bonds ready today As the officers of the road spend most of their time In New Y ork It will not be difficult to serve them with the arrest warrante. BARING CRACKSMEN. Freeport, Fa., and Shreveport, I«., Both Raided by Margin». Srrkvrport, Ln., March «.—Abont 7 o'clock three masked men entered the Shreveport and Houston Railway depot, and while one covered the watchman with a revolver anti kept a lookout the otherx blew open the -safe, from which they took 8400. The office of the Shreveport and Arkansan railway was alxo entered, the eafe blown open and a email turn of money taken It in thought tbe same men who robtied the Houston depot also committed this robbery. There is no dew to the thievee. The Robbery at Freeport. Fukki*OBT, Pa, March «—The raid upon the Freeport bank by expert burglars proves not to have been so profitable to them as first supposed. The burglars pene trated the safety deposit vanlt, but did not get into the safe proper. An employe of a Pittsburg safe company opened the bank's private safe. All the contents of the safe were secure, and beyond the damage to the vault the bank's private loss will be very small. No clew whatever as to the iden tity of the burglars has been obtained. It is stated that the lose to owners of private boxes in the vault would not be as heavy as at first supposed, but the actual amount of money and value of the bonds and pri vate effects taken from the boxes cannot be definitely ascertained for a few days. Labor Leader» Indicted. ScOTTDALK, Pa, March «—The grand jury of Fayette county has indicted the strikers and labor leaders who were pro secuted for assaulting Thomas Ixiuden, pit boss at W. J.

The workers are to receive the old scale of wages until the new scale is signed, and all non-union men now at work will be discharged. There is great rejoicing over the victory.
