! The Blame Divided..
Washington, Sept. 4. B. P. Barnes,
assistant secretary to the President,
arrived in Washington today. Mr.
Barnes was with the Presidential par
ty at. Plttsfieid yesterday, being- In the
- second carriage behind that occupied
by the President, Mr. Cortelyou and
Governor Crane at the time of the ac
cident. Although Mr. Barnes dis
claims, any special knowledge as to the
c4 rcumsUnces - of . : the accident - not
"shared by many Others, yet from what
he saw and heard on the spot he -thinks
the responsibility for the accident lies
between the driver of the; President's
carriage and the motorman, with the
greater burden upon the latter.
Th. trnltev mnA a that OOlnt. ilr.
Barries says, is straight for some dis
tance, and the motorman must have
seen and recognized the President's
carriage with its four white horses
some time before the crossing- was
reached, but instead of -' stopping or
materially reducing- his, speed, be came
on at a rate that made it impossible
for him to stop when he saw that
collision was imminent "The driver of
the President's carriage, on the other
hand could hardly have a clear view
of the track at the point of crossing,
as the outriders ion either side j must
have obstructed it to . some extent at
least. : v, o -
Among the people Who gathered at
the seen of the disaster It was sug
gested that the driver of the Presi
dent's carriage may have taken greater
chance In crossing- the track than he
usually would have-; taken. . He un
doubtedly felt his 'Importance: as the
driver of the President's landau, and
was reported to have refused;' $1000 to
allow another man to take bis plaee
tor the day. .... '
I Legal Steps Are 8Tow.-
Plttsfleid. ISept. 4. Less interest than
was generally expected was shown in
the appearance before the District
Court today of Motorman Euclid Mad
den and Conductor James Kelly, who
had charge of the car that struck the
President's carriage yesterday-. Not
more than 50 persons ' were present.
The case was not even called; and af
ter a conference between counsel for
the -street railway men and "the court.
It was agreed to postpone the matter
for two weeks. a Bail of $5000 for Mad
den and $2500 for Kelly was continued.
The presiding judge was Joseph Tuck
er president of the street-railway com
pany. Had hearing been bad he
probatly would have given place to n
associate. ". . ' ":-' .' '-
It Is believed -that two weeks hence
another postponement will be. granted
and that the preliminaries and action
by the Grand Jury, if the case should
come before It, will take up so much
lime that actual trial will not be reach
ed before January. - r . t

that the rail had spread. The train
