DEATH LIST NO LARGER But Other Victims of the Grand Trunk Wreck May Not Survive. BODY IN SNOW ALL NIGHT Firemen Not Found Until Scarchert Had Looked for Severs! Hour* OPERATOR AT FAULT PUTS BLAME ON DISPATCHER Says He Had Orders to Cancel the Clearance of Train No. s—Runaway Street Car Injures Several Return ing From Passionist Fathers' Jubilee, LONDON, Ont., Dec. 28.—There were no deaths today among the per sons injured in Friday night's collision at Wanstead, on the Sarnia branch of the Grand Trunk railway, between Pacific express No. 5 west bound and an east bound freight, in which twen ty-eight persons lost their lives. Tonight at Victoria hospital, though several of the injured are still in a serious condition, it is expected all will recover. The body of Fireman Ricketts, of the express train, which was last night believed to be buried under the wrecked engines, was found today cov ered with snow in the ditch beside the track. One arm was completely torn off and the body was otherwise mangled. Death must have been in stantaneous. It is believed the body was thrown clear of the engine and into the deep snow in the ditch where, in the storm and darkness, the wreckers failed to find it Friday night. Snow fell rapidly all that night, so that Ricketts' body was completely covered at daybreak and was not found. Today one of the searchers was at tracted by a little mound in the ditch and investigation showed Ricketts" body under the snow. Tonight there is but one unidentified body In the morgue, that of a woman ticketed from New York to Duluth. The other body, that of a man, un identified last night, was today identi fied as that of George D. Southern, of Lockport, N. Y. Operator Makes a Statement. Andrew Carson, the operator at Watford, the first station east of the wreck, whose failure to deliver orders to Conductor McAuliffe, of the express train, to pass the freig-ht at Wanstead, is said by the Grand Trunk officials to have caused the wreck, this afternoon • made his first statement since the wreck. He says he received the order for No. 5, the express, to pass the freight at Wanstead at 9:4S o'clock, but declares positively that a few min utes later Dispatcher J. G. Kerr, at London, called him and ordered him to "bust,or cancel" the order. He said: "About 5:45 o'clock, after calling Wyoming and ascertaining that the freight was there, the dispatcher called me rapidly a half dozen times. When I answered on the wire he told me to 'bust' this order. I wrote 'bust it' across the order just as No. 5 was com ing in. Conductor McAuliffe came in and asked me why the order board was out against him for. I told him we had had an order for him, but the dispatcher had busted it. He asked me to hurry and write him a clearance order, which I did. "After the train had started and was out of my reach, the dispatcher learned the freight had left W ryoming. I told him I could not stop No. 5, as it had left. He immediately began calling King's Court Junction, the station be tween Watford a*:d Wanstead, on the railroad wire, and! tried to raise them on a commercial wire. We both failed to do this, however, until after the ex press had passed the junction." Carson admitted that he knew it was against the rules to cancel a train order without sending a substitute for it, but said that the dispatcher was his superior officer, and he disliked to question his order or dispute his au thority for taking this action. Order Book Shows No. Cancellation. The order book in the local Grand Trunk office does not show that the order was "busted" or canceled, as Carson claims. According to the book it was still in force and should have been delivered to the conductor of the express. Kerr has made no statement, not even to the railway- officials, and will not until he takes the stand at the in quest. District Superintendent George J. Jones, at Toronto, says that the rule against bursting or canceling orders was the strictest in the company's book. "I do not think it has been violated," he said, "since the present dispatch ing: rules went into effect. Dispatch er Kerr is one of the best and most efficient men in our service. 'He is the operator who accompanied the train bearing the Duke and Duchess of York on the royal tour of Canada a year ago. I have every confidence in him." ■ Other Grand Trunk officials who were present alsc expressed their con fidence in Kerr. Coroner Dr. Harvey, of Lambton county, will begin the inquest at Wy oming tomorrow. The possibility of pneumonia devel oping among the wounded as the re sult of their exposure while pinned In the wreck is feared by the surgeons tonight. Several of them show symp toms of the disease.
