THE WIG AN ACCIDENT. Captain Tyler's report on the Wigan accident haa atlastbeenissuedbytheBoardofTrade. It minu- tely describes the scene of the catastrophe, sum- marises the evidence taken at the inquest, and then sets forth the general conclusions of the inspector. These, as anticipated a short time ago, set up alter- native theories of the points having been moved dur- ing the passage of the train over them, and of the near wheel of carriage No. 123 having slipped and left the main line. Captain Tyler deci- dedly iprefers the latter explanation, and deduces as a moral from it the necessity of a limit being placed on speed in passing such dangerous {places all Wigan station. In conclusion, he say, there is a grave responsibility attaching to tthe company on whose line the accident occurred, and also to ithe other companies actively competing with it, unless they adopt reasonable precautions, not only in pre- scribing moderate speed, but also in having their re- gulations carried out under proper discipline.
