G. NORTON FLED Hope Man Packed His Belongings After Train Left the Rails NOTE: Before the Mexican ROV- ' eminent hough! control of the nill- roflds In Mexico the railroad corn- imnies were heavily fined and the conductor WHS Imprisoned when (rain wrecks occurred in which persons were killed or seriously injured, if ;i uc »i wrecks vtere caused through sonic violation of the Inws governing movement of tains. Thirty kilometers nn hour was the lawful speed of freight trHins, A kilometer is five-eights <if a mile, and 30 kilos is about 19 miles. By S. G. NORTON Retired I... A. Conductor, Hope It was in (lie winter of !890 ,-ind 1891. The Mexican .Government had not then taken over the railroads in Mexico. I was a freight conductor for the Mexican Central. My run was between the City of Mexico and San Junn del Rio. My train ran every clay, but on Sunday we delivered no way freight. It was a sort of clean up day. This made our schedule very slow. Wo could run along and do our work in a leisurely way, and still Be on time. • ' Now in those dnys, jn Mexico, when cars were set out on a siding, all the links pnd pins were taken out flnd ""put iri the caboose.' This was to prevent the ' Mexicans from stealing them and hammering them into crude plow points, or other tools. When eers had to he moved the brnkeirum first carried links and pins to each coupling, and the engineer then had to back up and come ahead to scp- crate or couple-up each time. One Sunday morning we had orders to meet a train at Cuatillan. There were about twenty cmply-box-cars on this siding. We have to "saw by" the train we were meeting, so first all the ears had to be coupled up. After shoving out ami letting • the train by, we had to uncouple those cars again, taking out all the links and pins, before we could be on our way. So we were forty minutes behind our schedule. My engineer's name was Jimenez. By the time we had finished the tedious task, ho was thoroughly irrita. ted. Instead of running along as fast fis we were permitted, which was thirty kilometers an hour, he just poked along, leaning out of the cab window, and losing marc time-. In those days we did not have air brakes. Speed on grades was controlled by brakcmen, with hand brakes. From Huchuctoca to El Salto there was a down grade, but it was much steeper from El Salto to Tula. This being a Sunday, my brakcmen were all anxious to make good time, to get into San Juan Del Kio to their wives and sweet hearts, and the delay was going to make them so late that they got sore about it. As we pulled out of HuchuctocH the crew decided that they had the engineer on their side of the hill, and would turn everything loose so that .some of tho lost time could be made up. We made a swift run to El Salto, but from there on, nal only wax the grade steeper, but there were many more curves. I rcali/cd that we were running too fast. 1 started to climb nut of the eupalo of the caboose and tried to signal my brakcmen. But they, Without exorcising any common sense at all, were riding like crows, their arms outstretched, as we went swinging and swaying around the curves. Inevitably disaster struck. We approached a sharp curve along a river. The engineer was not throughly frigh. tcned, and he called for brakes, at the same time reversing the engine, but it was too late. The engine do- railed on the curve and turned over on the river bank. The train was composed of empty box.cars, ten or twelve- cars or more and several empty refrigerators. When the engine went off the track the rest of the train just buckled up in the middle, and some of the cars were hurled up high in the air before they Cciine crashing down. In one instance 1 saw space between a refrigerator and the ground, and then another space between the refrigerator and one of my brakcmen, as they came down. As the din and confusion subsided, 1 crawled back into the caboose, put a 41 Colts into my pocket and gathered up a few personal belongings- all that 1 could conveniently carry.

Announcements Must Be Signed Within the last several weeks The Star has received a number of announcements which, because their senders failed to sign name and address, can not be published. Signatures are not printed, but the authority back of the announcement must be known to the management before it can be used. This rule is enforced absolutely in announcements concerning weddings, engagements, births and deaths. If any subscriber has sent such an announcement to us and failed to get it published it is because Die announcement was not signed—and unsigned communications arc treated alike, even though the omission is an oversight.
