From the condition of engine when she gave out, shows boiler overheated. The right hand side sheet of the fire box is torn away from crown sheet and flue sheet, carrying that part of the mud ring with it. The crown sheet, with crown bars attached, has been blown down against the left hand sheet of fire box, leaving the back sheet and flue sheet pulled down some six or seven inches on top. The outside side sheets were torn completely away from mud ring, back sheet, throat sheet and shell was straightened out with dome attached to it. The shell is all right. The left band back driving wheel was taken off, also the frame broken and twisted; the back cylinder heads are both broken, and piston rod is broken; otherwise cylinders, valve motion, etc., are all right.

Yours truly,
G. H. HAZELTON,

Superintendent M. P.

In reply to a letter of June 16, 1891, from Commissioner Rickard, the following certified copy of inspection of engine was received.

OSWEGO, N, Y., June 18, 1891. Mr. G. H. HAZELTON, Master Mechanic:

DEAR SIR.-- Engine No. 12 went out of shop April 16, 1890, after undergoing general repairs. The last inspection of her boiler was made at that time, and the following repairs made on her boiler: Tubes were all taken out and replaced, crown bars all taken off, and crown bars and crown sheet scaled to prevent mud burning off crown sheet, crown bars were reriveted on crown sheet and all braces made secure, stay bolts were all tested by the hammer test and none found broken. After tubes and crown bars had been removed from boiler and before they were replaced the boiler was scaled and cleaned internally. I then made personal interDal inspection of boiler and all braces, and found them in good condition. The above as per your request of this date is respectfully submitted, and I certify that the same is a true statement relative to the last inspection made on boiler of engine No. 12.

J. H. MCGRAW,
Foreman Boiler Department, R., W. & 0. R. R.

The Board then suggested that hammer tests be made, at least once a month, of all stay bolts.

WEST SHORE. November 17, 1890 -- John Durkin, drove on crossing at Willow street, Syracuse, and was injured, being struck by engine of passenger train No. 51. A letter of inquiry from the Board developed the fact that the crossing was protected by a flagman at the time of accident and flagman warned Durkin not to cross.

November 29, 1890 - Employee Kirk Curry, while standing on the steps of engine at Newark yard, was killed, caused by engine being derailed. Inquiry shows that derailment was caused by engine mounting the point of switch.

March 27, 1891 - While Charles H. Ives was attempting to cross the track at McBride street crossing, Syracuse, he was struck and killed by yard train. A letter from the company states that the crossing was protected and Ives warned not to cross the track.

May 2, 1891 – Allen Cameron, employee, while standing on the track at Marlborough, was struck and injured. Accident was caused by collision. In reply to a letter, asking for circumstances in detail, the following was received:

NEW YORK, June 2, 1891. Wm. C. Hudson, Esq., Secretary:

DEAR SIR.- Replying to yours of the 1st instant, with regard to the accident at Marlborough, May 2, I would state that the accident was the result of the gross negligence of the brakeman of the south-bound freight train, who threw the cross-over switch from the north-bound to the southbound track in the face of the over-due train. This brakeman had been on the road a long time and should have been perfectly familiar with the rules. It is hardly necessary to say that he was promptly discharged from the service of the company.

Yours truly,
J. D. LAYNG,

General Manager.

June 9, 1891 - C. Petzing, while attempting to cross the track at Bowmansville, was struck by passenger train No. 5 and killed. Inquiry shows that the crossing was not protected by either gates or a flag. man, but the view was unobstructed.
