why railroad companies want to a-

but the conditions ia this country

lines over there ure all comparatively
short and run through very popu-

much heavier troUic than is possible
on our roads and justifies expenditures for safety devices that would

eighteen Hindus sentenced to a

"It was back in the early eighties
when towns on the plaiiiB of Western Kansas and Nebraska were few
end far between. Even the tide
tracks were many miles apart, and
telsgraph stations wero no closer together than the needs of the service
required, which wasn't very close in
those days. I was a locomotove
engineer on the Union Pacific at that
time and had a passenger run from
Omaha to Cheyenne.
"We pulled out of North Platte
one bright spring day about an hour
behind time. The schedule waan't
so fast as it Is now and there was a
bigger margin for delays, but it took
pretty fast running to gain an hour
in a two-hundred mile run. One
thing or unother held us back, until we got to Julesburg, the Denver
Junction, und wo were still fifty minutes on the wrong side when we
draw out of there on tbe homestretch.
1 gave her ail the steam she
could curry end we wars Just bitting ths track in ths high pluces,
when 1 noticed fur oil across the
plains ahead of us the smoke of ti
locomotive coinlug in our direction,
and coming fast, too, There was
no regular train due In that vicinity
at that time and 1 hud received uo
orders in regard to u special or a
wreck or work train, so 1 wot a
littio puzzled. Still, there was a
siding over near the point whore the
amoks was rising, and I thought the
other fellow must be making for it,
'So I kept on at a pretty stiff
gait, watching the distant smoke all
the time. Pretty soon I became a-
ware that she had passed tho siding,
and from the way I was going and
the way she was going, it would be
but a few minutes before wo would
come together and somebody would
get hurt. I had about olght coaches, besides tho baggage and express
cars, swung behind me, and every
coach wns crowded with passengers.
Tho thought of what would happen
to all these peoplo unless something
was dons mighty quick turned me
cold, but It set me to work. Sooner

We death has raised the question ot
lirt escapes all over the continent.
From the Atlantic seaboard to tht
Pacific coast, in every town in the
Dominion and in tht United States,
this question of the children's security against fire has been raised.
It is to be hoped tilic the conununi-
tlat will insist upon the provision of
exits, proper and adequate for times
of emergency and panic, while yet
the horror of the Cleveland holocaust ia upon them. It too often hap-
perns that the first shock of a col
amity leads to an outburst of unmeasured aud irrational denunciation, directed here, there and everywhere, without aim or intention. For
a lew days there is a perfect frenzy for reform, for security, for every
possible kind of precaution, In the
United States this first inevitable
impulse finds direction in the desire
to Os tht responsibility, to turn the
light ot the law on some unfortunate
individual. In the General Slocum
calamity the captain took, all the
punislmiant for the faults of a system ln which there was no regular
inspection. Ths soma thing would

Thla might account for the vast army of laborers used. For Instance,

would hove 30 multiplied by 100,

average number on the Cltv Investing building would not exceed two
thousand men a day, while the maximum would probably never reach 8,-

The upshot of the affair Is that the

at they caught on to the situation,
there wae such a hullabaloo at never wae heard before on a railroad
train, I suppose, for people don't
usually havt to much notice of
coming eollision. it was all tbe
crtw could do from keeping theiu
from jumping right through the windows, and I never did understand
why most of tbem didn't do it anyhow.
"Well, after e long time, we did
get our old machine stopped. Ami
than there woe a general exodus ofl
passengers, lt wasn't any too toon I
either, for that fool locomotive was'
only a mile away and wasn't  even

as if he had a clear road.
"By the time we got to going he
wos not over 800 yards from us,
and, though I pulled the throttle
out to tbe limit, and Jim Corbln,
my fireman, stuffed her with fuel until her furnace was white hot, the
other kept gaining on us. Closer
and closer, with not a tound we
could hear above tht rattle of our
own machine. it was like being
chased by a spook, and it felt more
like it when it got so close I could

that seeraod to bt only a few seconds sway. She wat only ont hundred feet away now,- and I got in

never did like to leap from e train

came to a full stop within sight
tbe telegraph station,
At soon ns I could get my train
to a standstill I jumped out ol my
cab and ran ahead to the 'dead' engine. I found that the engine was
not the only thing that was dead
there. Stretched out on tbe floor
wat tht body of a man with a revolver clasped in one hand and a bui
let hole through hit brain, I know
every engineer nnd fireman on tbe
road, but this man was a stranger
to me, Judging from his dress and
appearance ho was not a railroad
mon ot all.
"With the help of the telegrapg operator—I waa the only man left on
tha whole train; all the rest hod
dropped by the wayside as we started book—I coupled on to the dead engine, put her on the side track) and
reported to the train despatchcr for
orders. Without explaining the mys
tery, he Instructed me to pull ahead,
pick up my crow and passengers and
proceed to Cheyenne, which I did,
though I had to get o brokomon to

trouble until I got to Kimball,
There I learned that the station a
gent, who wat also tht operator
had got Into an altercation woth a
stranger and had been fatally stabbed. The stranger had been captured with ths bloody knife In hit
hands, and preparations for a a immediate lynching had been made.
Suddenly he broke away from his
captors, Jumped aboard an engine
that waa standing, with steam up,
on tht main track—the crew being
at lunch— pulled open the throttle,
and in no time was whirling across
the prairie. A .hundred shots were
lired at him as he ran and after he
mounted the engine. Whether one
of these latter shots hit him, or whe
ther he fired ths ball through his
own brain was never made certain.
Nor did anyone ever find out who he
was or where ho come from. But tho
death of the operator prevented any
report from going over the wires and
the train despatcher was in blissful
ignorance until I  made my report.
