Watch this Live Store, Corner Main and Merchant Streets
to suggest a plausible explanation, for
the disobedience of signal indications.
That they are disobeyed, however, is a
fact, and the lives that are annually
sacrificed from this cause call loudly for
some means of arresting its results. Th
most disastrous accidents of this char
acter occur on roads equipped with mod
ern systems of automatic block signals,
where elaborate precautions to prevent
accidents (short of guarding against the
consequences of signal disobedience)
have been taken. The trains involved
in these lamentable disasters generally
are operated by trusted employes of
long experience.
, "But the record abundantly proves

that even splendid signal equipment and
admirable dittuipline, coupled with long
experience and hiffh moral character on
the part of employes, cannot prevent
the occasional man failures which
dure such fatal results. These facts
brought to the attention of the Congress,
with the suggestion that these man fail
ures indicate the necessity for the de
velopment and perfection "of some sys
tem of automatic train control to "be
used in connection with existing signal
systems.
High Speed Condemned.
'High speed was an important con
tributing eaune of several serious acci
dents during the past year. On many
roads there is no limit to the speed at
which passenger trains are allowed to
run. Knginemen are thus encouraged
to run their trains at excessive speed in
order to make up time lost on schedules
that are- in many cases already sulli
ciently fast for safety. Such high speed
is especially dangerous in times of fog
or storm, when signals can be seen but
a comparatively short distance. The
maximum allowable speed of trains on
all roads should be established at a
safe limit, and it should not be left
entirelyto the judgment of enginemen
to determine whether or not this limit
is exceeded.
"Inasmuch as the only purpose of in
vestigation," the report continues, "ia to
learn the true causes of accidents, so
that such cases may be eliminated as
fully as practicable, it is manifestly im
possible for the commission fully to ac
complish such purpose unless empowered
by law to enforce its recommendations.
Furthermore, the commission should be :
authorized to conduct independent inves- ,
titrations with resnect to all matters
affecting the Bafety of railway travel,
the object being to prevent accidents as
far as possible rather than, as at pres
ent, merely to point out the causes of
accidents after their occurrence. There
is particular need for an investigation
of the conditions surrounding the use of
steel rails and car wheels upon rail
roads. Recommendations.
Among the important recommenda
tions for new legislation are the follow
ing: That one period be fixed for the begin
ning of all actions relating to transpor
tation charges and that that period be
within three years "from the completion
of the service as to which' damages are
claimed.
That a carrier which fails to demand
Payments to Former Legis
lators and Newspaper
Men
PROBED BY PUBLIC
SERVICE BOARD
New Haven Messenger Re
fuses Answer as to Num
ber of Poker Games
Boston, Dec. 19. Further 'explanations
of some of the payments made by the
New York, New Haven & Hartford rail
road to newspaper men and former leg
islators under the "general expense" ac
count, was sought at the hearing be
fore the public service commission yes
terday. A newspaper reporter, a former mem
ber of the legislature and two New Ha
ven employes testified during the fore
noon. Testimony that he was employed by
the New Haven to read all legislation in
gearch of "jokers" affecting the railroad
was given by John J. Garthind, a real
estate dealer, who formerly served in
the House of Representatives.
It required oil expert, lie said, to de
tect the hidden meanings in some of the
hills.
George II, Sargent, reporter for a Bos
ton newspaper, testified that he received
money from the railroad in, return for a
weeKiy letter which he mailed to small
newspapers throughout the state.
John A. Alarby, who described him
self as a legislative messenger, employed
by the railroad, said that he received
750 a year in 1012 and 1013 for follow
ing legislation at the State House.
He denied ever speaking to members
of the legislature, explaining that his
duties merely required him to attend
all committee hearings.
Information regarding card gnme al
leged to have leen conducted by em
ployes of the New Haven company at
a Boston hotel and nt which members
of the legislature were said to have been
allowed to win large sums of money
was sought from Henry K. Bowden, an
other railroad messenger, by Arthur I).
Hill, attorney for a Boston newspaper.
Bowden denied that he conducted any
card game in which legislators habitual
ly participated.
When asked to give the commission
all farts in regard to the card games
in which members of the legislature
took part. Bowden declined on the
ground that the answer might incrim
inate him in some way.
B. & M.: AFFAIRS DISCUSSED.
New Haven Executive Board Has Meet
ing at New York.
New York, I)oc."19. Boston & Maaine
affairs were discussed at yesterday'
meeting of the executive board of the
New Haven com ny, which lias a con
trolling interest in the Boston A Maine,
which has $27,fHMl,ilOi) in one year 6 per
cent, notes due the coming year.
Chairmsn KIMott deprecated rumors
of a receivership. He intimated that
with a little more time the New Haven
directors hoped to extricate the Boston
i Maine from its present situation.
payment of charges for any transporta
tion service within a period of fx I days
shall be deemed guilty of giving a re
bate to the shipper.
That all suits brought to enforce or
set aside orders of the commission be
directly under the supervision of the
commission, instead of, as now, under
the direction of the department of jus
tice; and that the commission be cliaifcd
primarily with the duty of presenting
such cases in court subject to the right
of the department of justice or private
individuals to intervene to protect public
or private interests.
That the commission be authorized
to mnke ordi-rs after investigation, re
specting the constitution and mainte
nance of the physical properties of rail
roads engaged in interstate commerce
and rules and regulations pertaining to
the use and operation of such proper
ties. That the commission be given control
and supervision over railway capitaliza
tion. Thiit, further to minimize the danger
of accidents, the commission be empow
ered "to require the use of block signal
systems and to require the adoption and
use of steel or -steel underframe cars in
passenger service."
That explicit' authority be given the
commission to examine all books and
papers of common carriers subject to
the law.
Thnt the commission lie relieved of nil
duties under the parcel post law, "or
that, such duties and the standards to be
applied be more clearly stated."
The report gives some consideration to
the law providing tor physical valuation
of railways. Up to the present time it
has not been possible to do more thnn
prepare an outline' of the plans for the
grent task of valuing American railroad
property.
The report shows that the work of
the commission increased tremendously
in volume. Scores of violations of the
law by botli carriers and shippers were
investigated. In this connection the re
port says that "the false billing of
freight by shippers continues." It is
pointed out that serious abuses of tran
sit privileges by both carriers and ship
pers constitute a continuing evil, rem
edy for which is being worked out by
the commission. Failure on the part of
carriers to collect from shippers certain
demurrage charges wfcs made the sub
ject of many investigations, because this
is regarded by the commission as one
of the most insiduous forms of rebat
ing. Stress also is laid upon violations
of the anti-pass law, but the report in
dicates that these are becoming less and
less frequent.
