(Continued from Front duty if he had known that any train lad pussed to have reported it as the witness Workman said; He should have refused the order if he mew the train had passed and to wire in "S D" "signal displayed" when the train had passed, was an ict of negligence and was the- cause of the'accident. The changed order goes to Pincher and Brocket simul- taneously, the train 1443 starts out as fast as possible, if he had sent in word that the train had passed, the r could have ordered 1443 to remain at Brocket and averted the accident. "Tlie Crown does not say for a min- ute that Mullin had intended to cause an accident but he failed in the res- ponsibility lie accepted as an opera- tor, and as such is guilty." As -to1 the headlight, there is no evidence to show that the lantern put on the head of the engine went out. The whole matter lies in the fact that if the order had not been ehang- the accident would not have oc curred and the operator was respon- sible for the changing of the order. The running of trains on Sunday mak- es no difference to the responsibility for life. Mr. McCaul said he was not asking or any sympathy for the accused 'The despatcher does, it is true, de >end upon the operator for informa- i Tomorrow Grand I millinery Opening AT C. A.

Hodgson, proceeded lo the ion but on the other hand, the op (raters depend upon the despatcher or clear and distinct messages. The nessage received by the operator a Pincher Station was not clear. DCS jatcher Workman admitted that tb clearest meaning that could have oeen placed upon the message was 'Is there an eastbound train Mullin was not charged with no snowing that the train had passe and hence can not be convicted upoi that fact, whatever the cause of sue an event may have been. He canno be found guilty for not knowing th train hud passed. This the Crow says is the cause of the acciden There must be shown a careless an reckless disregard for duty before you can find him guilty. You must re- member that up to the time he re- ceived the message Mullin did not know there was a train on the line. There was nothing in the message to indicate which way the trains were travelling. The telegram according to the company's rules meant anything hut what the dispatcher meant. Each of the witnesses tried to evade his res- ponsibility and to shove it on to the unfortunate man. If the case proves anything, it proves that the C. P. R. is responsible for the death of the man Ormsby and it 5s a matter of congrat- ulation that the facts have been brought out in the trial. The ultimate cause of the accident was the illegal merating of freight trains, exc.-pl under certain exceptions, on Sunday contrary to Dominion statutes and they are responsible for the conse quences. Mullin obeyed all the rules of th company. He could not refuse the or der. The minute the message was pneumonia.
