Travelers going (jast on the 5:15 ■electrio car Tuesday were delayed one honr by a peculiar accident. Like some people, the car which was dne to leave at that hour tried to spread out and cover more territory than its capacity warrauted. At the "William st. switch the forward trucks with the motorman started ou the Main st.line for Ypsilanti while the rear trucks with the conductor started up William st. for the university. A house divided against itself cannot stand, (we have been told). An eleotrie car can stand under those cirumstancs but it can 't do aaiything else. In this instance the brakes were rendered useless and the ;ar was compelled to wait for the next ■one which towed it to the shops at Ypsilanti.
