Montreal, Jan. 5.-Failure of Engineer GaJiriel David to distinguish a danger signal, a break down of the electrical block light system of signalling or a deliberate attempt by somebody to cause an accident to a troop train,1 were thro* suggestions made at tho inquest held this afternoon into the deaths of seven Vancouver soldiers killed l?at night when a Poinre Fortune Canadian Pacific Railway local rammed a military special at Dorval. David, hiuiHelt after being warned that what he might say could be used against him Hhould he be held for trial swore that the first signal ho passed Just before the collis-'on indicated dai; ger, but a second showed the section was absolutely clear. > James Taylor, the C. P. R. division supervisor in charge of the s'gnal system, said the signals, which were worked automatically by electricity and would not be affected, by the weather, showed danger. The block light system, Mr, Taylor swore, was absolutely reliable. Frank Callaghan, lawyer for David, asked pointedly whether there might have not been a conspiracy to wreck the troop train, and Mr. Taylor said he did not think ao. The padlocks or the boxes containing the local controls of the signals were frozen stiff and , had not been tampered with. j Mr. Callagan said that David was prepared to produce two men, McNair, Smiths Falls and Hartley of Montreal, both C.
