Accidents.

The Board has determined this year not to publish in detail the results of its special investigations of accidents, in an endeavor to reduce the size of this volume; it prints here, however, a statement of the accidents which it investigated and in which its inspectors have made reports. As usual; copies of the inspectors' reports were sent to the companies, and in some instances recommendations were made, most of which were complied with and others of which are pending.
