The legislature ought to go very
slow In its con.sideration of the Gray
don 50-car train bill. which wol (
limnit the length of traIns in this state
to fifty cars. Should this bill be passed
it would wipe out at one blow
millions of dollars of capital Invested
to make possiblo the hauling of long
er trains. he bill is inten(led, so it
Is understood, as a ineasure of safe
ty against accidents. One of the rc
uIlts will he the giving of ellployment
to more men.
rhe question of the safety of the
shorter train s is a debatable one. It
has been pointed out lby railroa(d of
flcials that to clit Ip one 100-ear train
into two 50-car trains quadruples the
danger of collision and Other things
that may tend to muake railroad traflic
utnsafe. Pres. Mark W. Potter, of tlie
C., C. & 0. railroad, which ruts trais
of as high as 135 cars, ascribes the
low fatality record oil Ills railroad to
the greater safety i'.eident to longer
and the'refore tewer trainis. There is
certaiily a tuestion whether or not
shorter trains Wouild give more sa fey,
while it goes without truestion tlit
they wold in(1 - crase the ex len s to
the railroads and indlretly to thle
