Engineer Tells of Experience
In a Wreck.
ACCIDENTON LONG BRIDGE
Mr.W, R, Sanders Was In Charge of
the Train the Baggage Car and
Tender of Which Went Down
Into the Potomac River.
Mr. TV. R. Sanders, of this city, engi?
neer on Cheeapeake and Ohio train No.
6, engine 28, the tupder of whloh crashed
through the Long Bridge over the Po?
tomac to Washington Sunday night, has
arrived at his home In this city, after
an experience sufficient to turn his hair
gray almost, and one that he will ne;ver
forget. Mr. Sanders, who Is one of tho
pluckiest and most efficient young engi?
neers on tho road, described his thrill?
ing experience In some detail to a re?
porter for Tho Times-Dispatch last
night Said ho, in telling of the occur?
We left Washington at 11:21 P. M. and
tho accident occurred at 11:81. The train
consisted of engine, tender, a dead-head
baggage car, which was being carried to
Gordonsvllle; express and mall combi?
nation car, two day coaches and 'throe
? sleepers. Three minutes' time Is required
? of trains ? In crossing this bridge by gen?
eral orders, and the train was Just roll?
ing along without steam when the crash
occurred. As the engine passed the center
, of the draw I reached up to the throttle
j to Increase the speed of the train after
? passing off tho draw, which in about
; elg-hty feet long.
LEFT IN DARKNESS.
I "Just as I was in the act of catching
hold of the throttle the accident oc?
curred, and the Jerk of the parting train
caused me to throw the throttle wide
open. Immediately the electric lights
on the bridge and on the engine went
I out and we were suddenly left in total
darkness. In the noise of the escaping
steam and the crashing and cracking
of breaking and falling timbers I could
. not realize what had happened, though
j I felt the giving away of the bridge,
| which Is about fifteen feet above tho
water arid the water bentnth about fif?
teen feet deep. Some of the cross beams
of the overhead frame work of the bridge
fell and struck the headlight and dynamo
and the stack, knocking them over and
crushing the bell, then falling on tho
rear of the cab roof, crushing that down
considerably. It was too dark to see
anything, and I called to my fireman. J.
R. Woods, of Charlottesvllle, to see what
i had become of him. After calling seve?
ral times he answered feebly by groan?
ing. Indicating that he was still on tho
engrine or near by. The second car, the
combination express and baggage car,
had toppled over the end of the draw
and was resting on the edge of It, with
the other end In the water. In its fall
the express messenger slid from one end
j of the car to the other and was consld
| erably bruised. The car was left lying
? over the edge of the draw at an angle
I of about. 45 degrees. .
"As stated, everything was in com
I p?ete darkness. At this moment four
men, who were stationed in the engine
room overhead, whence the draw Is ope?
rated, came down the sides of the bridge
to the side of the cab. About this time
I attempted to pull the engine away, but
it would not move.
FIREMAN WAS HURT.
"As soon as the fireman groaned in re?
sponse to my call, I found him in the
cab, bleeding profusety from a severe
scalp wound and another on the face,
Inflicted by the falling timbers of the
bridge, one of which struck him in Its
fall. He was blinded by the flow of
blood and was nearly unconscious from
the blow and loss of blood.
"When I found out he was al! right, or
a*, least alive, I lit a torch and stepped
down on the ond of the ties. Had I
stepped off the rear of the cab Instead, as
the light soon showed me. I would havo
gone down into the Potomac, for the back
of the cab was Just on the edge of the
broken draw. With the assistance of tho
four men who had come down from the
draw, I made an Inspection of the draw
I where It connects with the bridge at tho
? south end, and finding it ih proper posl
j t:cn, I returned to the engine and moved
it off the dra"w carefully, so as to avoid
I setting the bridge afire and to get the
: fire out of th? firebox and prevent a pos
I B.'ble explosion, for with the tender gone
and full steam up, there was danger of
It Then I rendered all possible assist?
ance to Fireman Woods.
"Although weak and In pain and blinded
by the blood flowing down his face, he
assisted me in getting the fire out of the
; engine. In order to do this we had to
stand on the cab seats above the firebox
and reach downward and work the grate
? bar back and forth, there being nothing
foi us to stand on. the tender and bridge
both having been swept from under ue.
Faint and weak and bleeding, the fireman
I labored faithfully, and between us we
succeeded in getting the fires out
! "?? to this time I thought certain that
all the coaches had been plunged into
the river, for the tender and deadhead
baggage had gone, and it was too dark
to see beyond the draw, and the silence
of death prevailed. Naturally I was
much relieved to find that they had re?
mained on the track on the other side
ot the break in the draw, and all were
WAS A BIG ENGINE.
"The engine was what Is known as a
six-wheel connected one, with five foot
eight inch wiioels, such as is used for
passenger trains. After easing It away
ft cm the break and off the draw on to
tho solid portion of the bridge, I went to
tho south end of the bridge, where a tel?
egraph station Is located, and reported
to headquarters the trouble. Assistance
soon came, and it was not until then we
learned the rest of the train was safe,
and, only the deadhoad car and the tender
gene. This empty baggage car was to be
cut off at Qordonsvllle. It was this that
caved the rest of the train. On the bridge
above us were electric light and trolley
wires, and In the collapse of the super?
structure of the bridge I was afraid that
wires had been exposod, especially when
the electric lights went out Fortunately,
I here was no 6iich danger to add to the
peril of the situation.
'It was a close call for us, and a very
remarkable thing that the entire train
was not thrown Into the river."
Mr. Sanders Is an active member of the
railroad Y. M. C. A, and Is one of the
most reliable and careful men in the sor
vico of the Chesapeake and Ohio. His
friands are congratulating him on his
thrilling escape from death or serious in?
jury, As it was he was entirely unin?
jured, and his fireman only severely hurt.

Aldermen Refuse to Make
GOES NOW TO THE MAYO
Merchants' Light and Power Ordinance
Concurred in?Constitutional Ques?
tion Raised as to Eligibility of
Mr. Ellett for Seat in Board
The Board of Aldermen at a called ses?
sion last night adopted without amend?
ment the redistricting plan for changing
the ward lines of the city, and it now
goes to the Mayor for his signature. If
approved by His Honor, it will become
effective on January 1, X'j??. The plan Is
exactly as It came from the Ordinance
Committee, and as printed some time ago
In this paper.
The ordinance granting a charter to the
Merchants' Co-operative Light and Power
company was concurred^ In aud a large
amount of routine business was disposed
of. The resignation of Captain James R.
Sheppard as a member of, the Board from
Lee Ward was accepted, and Mr. Minor
nominated Mr. T. H. Ellett as his suo
Mr. Seay raised the point that Mr. Ellett
was . IneLglble, for tho reason that he
Is now. a member of the Council, and
the new Constitution does not permit the
election of members to positions within
the gift of the body, or of ex-members
until twelve months shall have elapsed.
The nomination was laid upon the table,
and the matter referred to the City At?
torney for his opinion.
The board was called to order at 8
o'clock, and a rjuorum of members an?
swered to their names.
The resolution and ordinance granting
a franchise to the Merchants' Co-opera?
tive Light? and Power Company were
concurred in,"and a number of paving
and curbing resolutions from the other
branch wero also concurred In. The reso?
lution to appropriate $1,000 to repair tho
roadway from Chimborazo Park to Ful?
ton caused a good deal of discussion,
and it was finally concurred in?ayes,
17; noes, 3.
An ordinance was adopted appropriat?
ing $15.000 for coal and oil for the gas
department, owing to the exnense of tho
additional output of gas during the year.
Under suspension of the rules the reso?
lution appropriating $500 to repair the
gas pipes at the City Hall was concurred
In, and the proposition to raise the salary
of' the superintendent of the Alms
house caused quite a debate. It was
advocated bv Mr. Gunst and opposed by
Mr. Allen, the latter desiring It to go
over until the next budget It was fi?
nally concurred in?ayes. IS; noes. 1.
The raise Is from $1,200 to $1,500 per
year, and le effective on January 1st,
The ordinance allowing the Virginia
Mechanics' Institute .00.000 cubic feet
?f gas free of charge was concurred In.
nnd a number of other ordinances were
read and referred.
When tho redlstrictlng ordinance carao
up Mr. Gunst offered an amendment
that the western boundary of Monroe
Ward lie the centnr of First Street, in?
stead of St. James Street. ?
The amendment was tabled, on mo?
tion of Mr. Cottrell. and Mr. Beck sought
to amend by running the Une north and
(,0,ifV| h??in.e?Ti Clay and Lee Wards.
Mr. Cottrell moved to table, and this
was adopted-*ve?. 11; noes. 8.
Mr. Beck tried to amend the plan by
having the wards numbered Instead of
named; that "Jackson" be substituted for
"Henry" as the name of the new ward,
and Mr. Seay moved that it be named
"Henry Ward Beecher." All these amend?
ments went upon the table, and after
some filibustering, led by Mr, Beck, the
plan was agreed to-ayes, 15; noes, 4.
Tho plan now goes to tho Mayor for his
slpnature, and If approved will become
effective on January 1, 1904.
When the roll call was reached Mr.
Beck made a brief but spirited speech,
calling for a report from the committee
?of municipal Investigation. He said that
the. body had Investigated King William
politics and other Irrolevont matter, and
be desired to know what was tho reason
for the delay,
Mr Minor declared that tlie report
would be mndo as soon as It was possible
to do eo, and here the matter was ended,
A number or petitions for the refund of
taxes were offered on roll call. They
were ull referred. Mr. Gunst tried to call
ur. the ordinance requiring the Passenger
and Power Company to put its wires un?
der ground, but the body refused to take
it from the table.
A resolution providing for subdividing
the city Into precincts was adopted, and
the resignation of Mr. Jas. R Sheppard as
a member of the Board from Lee Ward
Mr. Minor presented the name of Mr.
T. H. Ellett as Mr. Sheppard's successor,
and Mr. Seay_ralsod the point of ineli
glblllty on account of the constitutional
inhibition against electing members of
the Council to positions In the gift of tho
bedy until twelve months after the ex?
piration of their terms. On motion of Mr.
Gunst the nomination was laid upon the
table, and tho opinion of the City Attor?
ney as to the constitutional status of the
matter was asked for. A resolution to
appropriate $4.000 for the purchase of a
school lot was concurred In, and Mr.
Satterfield offered by request a resolu?
tion to Increase tho salary of the harbor
master to $400 per year.
Mr. Wood offered an ordinance, which
was referred, fixing the salaries of the
city court Judges at $4,000 per year, in?
cluding that paid by the State, and It was
referred. This is an Increase of $500 per

teresting report She stated that Mr.

tion. The excavations at Jamestown this
year have unearthed the foundations of
? perhaps the oldest English-American
houses in this country. She thought that
It was most important now to protect
' these foundations and also to make every
! effort to finish the breakwater. She also
wished the members of the A. P. V. A.
I present to exert every effort to raise
money for the Jamestown work.
After Mrs. Bagby's report was resd,
Mr. Samuel H. Yonge made several sug?
gestions concerning the future work ut
Will N?ver Sei! Is'and.
Mr. W. G. Stanard presented tho fol?
lowing resolution, which was adopted

ed last night, and the reply he re?
ceived, which was In the shape of a let?
ter, could not bo obtained, since the
Brauer people themfcelves refuse to give
It la gathered, however, that tha rep?
resentatives of Mr. Brauer politely, bui
positively declined the Invitation tor rep?
resentation at tlie proposed meeting, which
was to be held Fr.day night at the re?
quest of Mr. Todd and his friends. Mr.
Brauer, It |h said, declared that ho was
not sure the State Committee would be
rt'llllng to participate In any meeting call?
ed at the Instance of a person, who does
not recognise the supreme party power,
and for the purpose of allowing an Inde?
pendent candidate (Todd) to fight the
party organization. The letter, It Is fur?
ther said, concluded with the statement
that Mr. Brauer reserved the right at
any and all times and places to uphold
the banner of the Democratic party.
Another Interesting document that pass?
ed yesterday was one clearly exemplify?
ing how closely and tightly the lines
drawn In the county over the question. Mr.
Sidney O'bunnon is secretary of the
County Committee and a supporter of Mr.
Todd. His father has just come out In the
following letter, advocating Brauer, to
whom the paper la addressed;
"I beg leave to acknowledge the receipt
of your letter of m'en date, und to eay in
reply that having participated In the pri?
mary held on the 3d day of September
last, I am In honor bnund to accept the
result, and recognizing you as the nomi?
nee, I shall unquestionably give you my
support at the election In November. As
I have done In the past, I will not hes tato
In the future, on all proper occasions, to
express my opinion as to the duty of ull
participants In the late primary, which
In to support the nominee,"
The Two Committees.
| As stated above, the fight, apart from
' Its personal aspeot, Which Is, however,
one growing dally more Interesting, has
developed Into ono of importance to the
party in the State, It le a contest be?
tween the two committees?State and
county?and much hangs In the balance.
The State Commtttae is making every
pren??rMlon to clve Brauer Its hoarty
support. Chairman Ellyson name out
again yesterday to this effect, calling
upon the Democrats of the county to
vote for the party nomtneo. It Is under?
stood that four of the five members of
the District Committee waited upon him
with a request that something be done In
this direction. Plans are also being
made for Brauer meetings all over the
county, and the first of them, from
nre*ent outlook, will be held to-morrow
night at Chestnut Hill. One at Shu
malrer's. with Captain George D. Wise
a? the speaker, will follow later on.
There was some suggestion yeeterdav
that the county eommltteemen showed
signs of weakening, but such Is not tho
?-?se. Chairman Itutlln said las? night
that the County Committee will do all
In Its power to elect Todd and defeat
Brauer. There will also be gomo Todd
meetinors. Ono uf them will probably be
hold Friday night. It ivi? r?nortffl v<??
terdav that a prominent Todd man had
defined to withdraw, but this report
could not bo verified last' night.
