An" elaborate report has been submitted to congress by the 1 UIOCK B!IJtU uuu uaiii CUUI1UI uutliu of the Interstate-commerce commis sion. DurinK.thc last year the board examined the specifications of 371 de vices; 248 of these being block signal, cab signal or automatic train-stopping devices. Only 12 of the devices were considered to possess sufficient merit to warrant the board In authorizing the Inventors to establish a working Installation with a view to conducting ti'Sts at the government expense. In Its Investigation of the telegraph Mock system the board finds many of the block signal men In the l ulled .States are lacking In training and in experience.
