Evidence that Tho Slaughter at Kouts ind., was due to carelessness. The freight Engineer Rushing ahead in a fog after a warning. Twenty five Miles an hour Down Grade and unprovided with Sand. A correspondent who has Boen watching the coroners inquiry into the deadly wreck at Konta ind., telegraphs As follows the responsibility for Tho disaster a becoming fixed Ukiu Tho Crow of Tho freight train which crash of into the disabled Pas longer. All to Emo no to l>0 had co Rocs from to employee of Tho Railroad but Thoro la no goo i Ria a a u for a Loving they have not told Tuo truth cd Noordin it Tho Manu Rients of Tho two trains that a out Ful night. First of All the Stab Libed facts against the on Elneor were that he knew to passenger on Gino was disabled and that the pose Ngor train a amp a not a Groat Way ahead of him. But two stations Back he had received distinct orders to look ont for the train Nax Load boat Fox at a torts whelk tie dead weh1i tax at a certain station. In a True he did not find the train there but it is also True he had to calved no information As to its locality. He Only know the Paa Zongor was ahead of him Komi whore Outha Lino with a disable i engine. Notwithstanding this knowledge be rushed ahead in a Douso fog. According to the testimony at Twenty Flo Milos an hour or oven a greater Rato. He ran on to a Grade mulch made a Stop within a half mile out of the docs Una at Tho Rato of Speed. To acknowledged he woe Uno Osy Aud under a spasm of temporary fear at Tho thought that thu passenger night be before him. To Wal stood for brakes. Then the thought of recovering lost Pluie overcame Hie caution and to whistled a off brakes i Quot when directly Ander the semaphore he saw the danger signal and again called for brakes and did All in his Power to Stop he train. This u his own Story but Why he should not have seen the red Light of the Eora up bore to fore that time is not Clear. It was apparent to the trainmen of the passenger train who stood by the Side of Tho track 2,500 Foet away but he Saya be could not Aee it. The most probable work no at the wreck. Explanation a that to was not looking Down Tho Bock at that critical moment on both to rate of running and Bis Outlook to was taking frightful changes and the throw at Tho Dlo was against him an a ther fact but lightly touched upon in the evidence is fall of significance. The engine was without any Protection against a Slippery track. To s3nd-i/ox was exhausted it is in Giu Oor a duty to Seo that bin engine is Sui with that safeguard against slipping wheels. Had and been in the Sand Box that a Light the wheel would have held to the track and while Trio shot a a might not have been entire r avoided. Its severity would beyond a doubt have been la Routly lessened. To Engineer s Effort to Stop Hia train on that Down Grade into Tho Poai engr wore almost timeless on this account and from All the fact at baud at this tune it does not appear that the heavy freight waa lacked of at All in its d Orect or half a mile. While any one of to fleas fact May not Render remains of the freight i no Ink. The Engineer liable to prosecution foe criminal negligence Togo Thor they ought to be Odomd ered unfit for a scr ice where human life die pends Jyon Faro falness of employee from an extended talk with the Coroner it was apparent that this View was substantially the one he Bod taken from his in von ligation. While the Blomo or to wreck primarily at tacos itself to the freight Engineer Tho ignorance of Tho jul Enger conductor regarding the movement of trains is surprising. He waa two hours late. According to the printed schedule of trains. Umoh to carried in his pocket the Quot meat train to. 4p. Should Havo passed him an hour before. Without knowing a thing Al out Tho locution of that train he Weott Ltd j that to had no idea that any train was be Jimil him.
