ENDANGERS HUMAN LIFE H« Less Tfcu Cripples Freight Scr- Tiee; XnibM* CmMeriig Cittiig Off Car Soply to Tk»»e Shippers Wi» 1'ersj.t r* tW Bad Practice. Victor Records for March Railroad men declare that overloading is one of tet cause.', of delay in prompt movement oC cars. TbM has became so ^seriO1ls that the railroads arc considering the adoption of stringent rules tp check tie practice. Statistics ol 43 cars in one yard show that these cars had excess lading ranging all the way from 3,000 to 2-1,200 pounds. All the cars are being held tor lightening, either by the railroad or for return to the mines it the j shippers elect to accept the latter coarse and do their own reducing after paying the road for getting the cars back to the initial point. An overload of 10 per cent beyond the stenciled capacity oC a car is permitted, bat that above, vralws the excess is so slight as to be negligible, paring down most be done. The overloading practice became especially serious when cars became scarce. Shippers, "when they receive a car on their sidetracks load all in HI that it could pocsibly contain and trusted to luck to get the car through. With a shortage of coal cars came the use o£ bo* cars for the transportation of coal. The temptation to overload these was too great to be resisted, railroad, men say. ' The car noted as having an overload oi more than 34,000 pounds was described as a^60,000-pound capacity box car belonging to a foreign road. The shipper loaded the car to the roof ^with coal and then billed it out. The' car stood up under the burden long enough to teach a scale track. When it was run on the scales the eyes of the scale cleric bulged as he recorded the weight The car was promptly sidetracked and the shipper was notified. Danger to rolling stock is not the Daly question involed. the coal freight agent pomted out. as there is the added danger to human life from wrecks due to breakdowns in transit. Bailing sides and broken iixles under overloaded coal cars are by no means uncommon, railroad men say, and nothing is more dreaded in a moving freight train than a broken axle. Railroad officials are considering cutting off car service from such coal concerns as deliberately overload cars placed at their disposal. There are said to be hundreds of overloaded coal »rs side-tracked in the Pittsburgh listrict. Most ot these hav« been left o the railroads for putting in shape "or transit. The railroads with a serious shortage of labor in their :laseiHcation yards, ha;e been un- iblo to keep up with this extra work ind, as a consequence, the cars with surdens too great for safe hauling are iccumulatmg. While no estimate was" made of the imount of coal prevented from reacb- ng the consumer promptly as the re- :ult of overloaded cars, the quantity s believed to run into thousands of ons.
