ECONOMY AND HONESTY TO PREV Al
Retrenchments to the Amonat of
K1.noO a Year Have Already
Been Made and More
NEW YORK, Sept. 11. President Paul
Morton outlined the policy of the new man
agement of the Equitable Ufe Insurance
society In an address which he delivered
at Manhattan Beach today to 750 agents
of the society who came from different
parts of the country.
The convention, which will close Wednes
day night, Is held In fulfillment of an an
nouncement made last December, when It
was promised that all agents who wrote
more than a stipulated amount of business
would be given an outing during the sum
mer. President Morton welcomed the
agenis at their first meeting this afternoon.
With him on the platform were Second
Vice President Gage E. Tarbell, Third Vice
President George E. Wilson, Comptroller
W. A. Day and other officers.
Mr. Morton's Addrraa,
After briefly reviewing recent events In
the Equitable. Mr. Morton said:
I sm going to say a few words to you on
your new administration. There will be
no attempt to make It daztllngly brilliant.
The effort will be to make It honest, cour
ageous and mnservative. There will be the
greatest con.ierallon shown for the policy
holders and at every turn their Interests
will be protected. All of the new directors
are policy holders. Businesslike methods
will prevail. The more economy of the
right sort we can Institute the more we
can save to the policy holders. Invest
ments will be of the highest character.
The institution will not be run as an ad
junct to any one or several banking houses.
Every owner of securities will have a
chance to deal with us and our aim will be
to buy the very best at the very lowest
prices. The cheaper this society can be
Iiroperly administered the better we can
Invest our earnings and the better showing
we can make the easier It will be for
agents to sell our Insurance. I want to see
the Insurance buslncua removed as far as
possible from politics.
Insurance a sacred Trout.
I believe In the proper laws safeguarding
the sacred trusta of Insurance, and 1 will
co-operate In the enactment of any neces
sary laws with that end in view. We shall
all work to put the business of life insur
ance on the elevated plane it ought to
The new irfanaaement of the Equitable
will Insist on an annual audit of Its affairs
by an unbiased and Independent account
ant. There will be no attempt to deceive
anybody, not even ourselves.
Retrenchments are the order of the
day In the Equitable, They already amount
to over IiKiO.uoO per year which Is equal to
4 per cent on an Investment of $15,ii0,000.
They will amount to a much larger sum
before we are through and I am sure that
we will satiRfy not only our own policy
holders and our own agents, but the many
who will buy what we have to sell.
CAR FALLS TO STREET
(Continued from First Puge.)
were taken Into custody. At a preliminary
hearing this afternoon all the men waived
Two versions of the cause of the wreck
were told to the coroner. One of these was
that the switchman had set the tracks for
a Sixth avenue train and when he saw his
mistake had attempted to rectify it while
the train was 'on the curve, the change
throwing the second, third and fourth cars
off the track.
The switchman, however, declares the
wrecked train had Sixth avenue signals set
and he expected It to slow down to take
the curve. Instead It maintained the speed
usual with Ninth avenue trains -on the
The curve at Fifty-third street Is a sharp
one and Is practically unbanked, according
to statements made today. It Is Intended
to be taken slowly and Is not constructed
for a higher rate of speed than six miles
Conductor Johnson this afternoon made a
detailed statement to Police Inspector
Flood. He said:
I was on the first platform of the second
car. We had Just left Thlrtv-nlnth street
and were going at a fair rate of speed, as
It Is a long run to Fiftieth street. The car
was pretty well crowded. There were a
number of men on the platform and In the
aisle of the second car. There were a
number of shop girls, who were laughing
and joking. ,
When we reached the curve the first car
went on and the second nnd third cars
went together like a jackknife, aticking
light up in the air and practically clusing
against each other. In consequence, from
where I was on the trout platform of the
second car at the start I was dropped to
the rear platform of the first car. Then
the second cur dropped to the street. I
held on to the Iron rail like death and was
straight up In the air. I saw girls and
women climbing over the seats of the cur
that they might escape.
Relng an old railroader I pulled out mv
watch and looked at It. It was exactly 7:08
a. ni. The hIkduIs were set wrong. That
was the trouble. They were set green and
yellow, which Is lor a Sixth avenue train.
Hull was accepted for all the railroad
man under arrest late tonight.
Policeman Tell of Accident.
Policeman Edward Moron, who was In
jured, was standing beneath the structure
when the accident happened. He leaped
when he heard the crash overhead and
"I turned around and saw the car coming
to the street," he. said. "It fell with a
crash on its forward end. The bottom
crushed and the aides shivered and opened
out. The people were Jampvd forward,
holding to the straps and mixed up to
gether. 'When the sides broke out they were
scattered all over the street. These were
the lucky ones. Those, who could not get
out were the worst Injured.
"I saw tht re was awful work ahead, so I
ran to Fifty-first street and turned In an
alarm. Then I sent in a call for all the
ambulances and asked for police reservea.
"As I ran back I called for help from
wagons of all sorts. When I got back the
atreet was strewn with injured people. We
lifted them Into grocery wagon, trucks,
anything handy and hurried them to Roose
velt hospital. Many of them were women.
They had fainted and It looked as if nearly
all were dead.
"When the firemen came they began
dragging people out of the car. The
further down they got Into the mass of
humanity the slower the work became and
tha more serious were the wounda of
"Finally axes had to be used to get
the people Irom under the wreckage. At
that stage they begun to pull out the
The excitement among those In tha de
railed cars on the structure as they real
ised whit happened became Intense.
In the forward car the men. deeming the
motorman was responsible for the wreck,
attacked him And tried to beat him. Ite
was dragged from his seat, but ha
shouted for fair play and convinced the
crowd that It was the switchman and not
he that was responsible.
W. C. Joh ison, a passenger on tha train,
said of the accident:
I was sitting on the second car of the
train reading a raper when all of a eud
den the lights went out and svervoiis
was thrown to one side. The next tiling
I knew I was thrown out of tha door and
l.in.lfil In the street, striking against
woman. This probably saved my life.

Eleven bodies of those killed In the wreck
were tsken to the Forty-seventh street
police station and laid oat In a row on tha
floor of the back room, and as fast as
persons who could convince the police that
they could make positive Identifications
reached the station house they wort ad
mitted. As the news spread the crowd In
front of the station hoi increased until
there was danger of a fatal crush, and ex
tra police were ordered frqm adjacent pre
cincts to aid In clearing the street.
The head which was found detached from
the body was that of Solomon Nugast. He
had been sitting at tbe front end of the car
which Jumped Into the street when a sharp
piece of board or metal aevered his head
from his body as though done with an ax.
Both head and body were, found on the
tracks several yards apart.
"I am satisfied that tha whole accident
was due to the neglect of the switchman,"
said Coroner Scholer. "'In the first place,
he made a mistake In turning the Ninth
avenue train Into Fifty-third street, and
then added to his blander by turning the
switch back again In an attempt to divert
the train Into Ninth avenue again. The
last mistake caused the terrible accident
and loss of life."
Joseph Bach, the policeman, died of In
juries after having been taken to Roose
velt hospital .
Switchman Is Arrested.
Cornelius A. Jscklnson, the swltehmarf.
who was blamed for causing the disaster,
was arrested at ills homa In West Twenty-,
second street. He maintained that he had
set the switch right. ' '
General Manager Hedlejr of the Inter
borough Rapid Transit company explained
the wreck as follows:
The wrecked train was a Ninth avenue
train, southbound. The signals In the
switch tower were set for open track for
the Sixth avenue, southbound. The train
went down Ninth avenue at a rapid pace
and struck the switch. The curve at this
point Is not banked. The train took the
switch, and at a rapid speed, and the first
car held to the rails simply through the
weight of the cars belilud. The strain was
so great that when naif way around the
curve the coupling broke between the first
and seconds oars and the second can's front
trucks Jammed the rails. There was noth
ing lert to guide the second car and It
kept on In a straight line without turning
and went over the side of the structure
falling to the ground dtrectlv In front of
the southeast corner of Fifty-third street
and Ninth avenue. . It was a physical Im
possibility for the switchman to have
turned the switch while the train was
moving rapidly over It. Statements to that
enoct are absolutely incorrect.

INITIATION AND ORATORY AT THE DEN
Many Mew Members Make Their
Peace with Sum wo n and Board of
Governors lines Some
The Ak-Sar-Ben Initiations at the den
are drawing to a close amid a blase of
light and glory, to say nothing of the $10
bills being turned In for membership cards.
Samson says there are yet some cards left,
that the time la getting short and that It
behooves every loyal cltlsen to get busy
and present himself at the den next Mon
day evening, when the last Initiation of
the season will be given. The total paid
membership to date Is 971.
Last evening's session was marked with
unusual eclat, which was contributed to
not only by the Initiation crews, but by
the Initiates and the speakers of the even
ing. It was a fitting occasion for one of the
closing evenings of the year at the den.
George F. Bldwell, manager of the Nebraska-Wyoming
division of the Northwest
ern railroad, acted as grand mufti on the
speakers' stand and offered some interest
ing statistics In connection with his talk
showing the rapid strides made In recent
years by Omaha and the state. He said
Nebraska will have the largest wheat, corn
and oat crop this season that It has had
for many years, and added that every cltl
len of the Antelope state has Just cause
for feeling glad he came to Nebraska.
Mr. Bldwell was followed by T. W. Mc
Cullough. of The Bee. Colonel MeCullough
spoke of the present substantial growth of
the city, the standing of the state from
the various material standpoints and of
fered words of praise for the work being
done by Ak-Sar-Ben. "With the passing
years I feel prouder each succeeding time
I meet our friends from rut In the state,"
said Mr. MeCullough.
BnlldlngT I p of Omaha.
Hon. G. W. Llnlnger spoke earnestly of
the need of additional Jobbing facilities for
Omaha, citing the growth of the machin
ery business as the result of his efforts
In the early days to seefcre competition for
the pioneer houss of which he Is the head.
From one house wholesaling machinery, It
has come to be that Omaha and Council
Bluffs form the greatest center of the
agricultural machinery and Implements
business In thepnlon, and what " Is
true In this line should be true In all lines.
Not a line Is overdone, he said, and he
urged efforts to secure more.
Mr. F. G. Snyder, of Louisville, Ky.,
made a hit by telling of how favorably he1
is Impressed with Omaha and Us possibili
ties and closed by prophesying that Omaha
would become the New Y'ork of the west.
Hon. John L. Webster, following the key
note of the evening, pointed out the achlve
ments wrought by little Japan, and then
asked If anyone could comprehend the
limitless possibilities of Nebraska, when its
resources have been properly developed,
when water and steam power are turning
the raw products of the fields Into addi
tional wealth by manufacturing them for
further uses. He asserted that Omaha
would then surely become to the central
west what New York Is to the oast,
J, W. Woodruff spoke pleasantly of what
Ak-Sar-Ben had done for Omaha In pro
moting sociability and the lighter thing
of life as well as for the material pro
gress of the community. "We know a
, busy man down town," he said, "but we
do not know If he has a heart or a laugh
n him. We bring him out here, take him
over the trail, and we find he has both." '
About seventy Omaha membera went
through last evening, while the out-of-town
visitors numbered forty. The at
tendance of former members waa generous.
Work on Parade Fund.
At the meeting of the Board of Governors
of the Kalghts of Ak-Sar-Ben, held last
evening at the Omaha club. It was decided
to hold a meeting of the board at noon
today at the Commercial club, the purpose
being to divide Into committees and meet
the merchants of the city who have not
contributed to the parade fund. It has
been stated that whatever the Omaha
business men subscribe toward the float
fund will be used to entertain tbe fall vis
itor. "Ak-Sar-Ben needs the money, and the
matter Is up to the merchants," said one
of the governors last evening in summing
up the situation.
The ball committee reported that this
year's grand ball will be a function that
will aurpaaa anything of the kind yet at
tempted by Ak-Sar-Ben. The ball will be
held along new lines, which will not be
divulged Just now, It waa stated. The
music committee reported that It wants an
appropriation for eleven bands for the
afternoon parade and electrical parades.
The matter of music was left open for an
Director W. 8. Jardlne addressed those
present at the den last evening and called
for volunteers who will ride on horses with
the floats and for men to ride on the floats.
Eighty horsemen will be needed between
the floats and about ninety men on the
floats. Some of the lodges will furnish
men for the floats, but a number of re
cruits are needed. Samson would like to
have he names of all volunteers at the
earliest possible moment.
Danes Are Preparing.
An entertainment committee of the Dan
ish Brotherhood Is making arrangements
to take cure of all the Danish visitors to
Omaha during the fall festivities. The
committee has already sent out 7.0o0 circu
lars to the eighty Danish lodges within
, i0 miles of Omaha, setting forth the en
tertainment that will be offered them by
the local lodge. Headquarters will be main
tained at Washington hall, where on the
evening of October i, afterMhe daylight
parade, a grand free entertainment will
be given for the visiting Dunes.
