GUABDS SAFETY OF THE PUBLIC Provides for Steel Frames and Non Telescopable Devices for Coaches. Under the supervision of the inter state commission a bill is being pre pared which, if it becomes a law, will compel railroad companies to build stronger coaches and other passenger cars, with the exception of sleepers. The bill will be introduced by Repre sentative Esch, of Wisconsin, and will provide that all coaches and cars for passenger service shall be construct ed with steel sleepers and steel sills. The American Railway association has been asked to submit details which would be practical from a rail rond standpoint, and every care is taken to have the measure such as will effect greater safety in construc tion. Before beginning the draft of the bill Representative Esch made a long investigation, going thoroughly into the history of car construction. He conferred also with government officials, who expressed the opinion that something should be done to pre vent the further construction of light railway coaches which either tele scope or break like egg shells in the event of a wreck, thereby causing a large death and casualty rate. I.4MQO From MleepnrB. It is asserted that the immunity from death and injury which passen gers in sleeping cars enjoy is largely due to the steel underframe construc tion, nnd it is understood that tho construction of the present day sleep ing car will be taken as a standard. In this event all day coaches, smok ing cars, buffet cars, chair and parlor cars will have to bo built with exten sion steel beams and possibly be pro vided with steel platforms and non teleseopable device. In view of the unusual number of lives sacrificed in railway wrecks the last year, the urgent reed of some such legislation is appreciated. At the same time the bill will undoubt edly give the railroad a reasonable length of time with which to eourply with the provisions of the measure. This time will be sufficient to permit of nil old equipment wearing out. but it will also provide that all cars to be constructed after the passage of the measure shall be of the required stand ard. It is the purpose to place the enforcement of the measure in the han:ls of the interstate commission, as Is the case with the enforcement of the automatic coupler and other measures requiring the use of safety devices.
