port Greater Care Being
Taken by Railroads of
Country to Insure Safety.
Greater care Is being taken by tho
railroads of the country In keeping their
loromotlves In good condition. This Is
shown by lepoils of the Interstate Com
tneitc Commission coveting the Inspec
tions of locomotives by the commission's
SO Inspectors In the last three Jeais.
The reports show that the numbei of
locomotives Inspected has Increased and
the number found defective in tiny way
Kor Instance, their were "1,2.14 locomo
tives Inspected In 1012. Of UiIh number
6") 7 per tent, were found with some
slight defects. Last ear the numbei In
spected was 00.3.'';, and 603 per cent, were
found defective. This jenr 02,715 have
been Inspected, and onl.v r2 9 per cent
were found with defects Many of then
defects, however, were not In violation
of the law. The delVrts that vverc In
violation of the law represented 15 pes
cent. In 1512, 5 2 per cent, last jcar and
.! (! por cent this ear
The eieatcst trouble from accidents
has been, according to frank McMan
amy ihlef Inspector of locomotive boll
trs of the Interstate. Commerce Com
mission, with the failure of arch tubes,
and four out of live of the accidents aie
caused by their Improper application.
The gientet care being ierclsed in
this direction by the railroads s rellected
in A material reduction In the number
nf accidents due to the failure of loco
motive boilers and their appurtenain.es
