Ceased hp Vibration.
{ Most evidence brought out before
' the Jury was to the effect that the
j landslide was caused by vibration from
' passing trolley cars, although it was
: shown that the work had been proper
I ly braced and was thought to be In a1
: thoroughly aafe condition.
S. T. Cowherd, of the Arm of Cow
i herd a Cowherd, grading contractors!
and employers of the laborera who lost
j their lives, waa the principal witness
; He waa of the opinion that the paes
I ing trolley cars caused the vlbratl' n
! of the two Iron polea which were car?
ried away when the earth collapsed.
< and this loosened the numerous braces
j which had been constructed and were
j regarded as sufficiently staunch to
prevent any acident. Foreman L. A.
Carter also attributed the cave-In to
vibration.
John Tyler and Thomas Bowles,
colored, the latter a brother of George
Bowles, one of the men killed, were
also wltneaeea. Their testimony waa
merely corroborative of that of Messrs
i Cowherd and Carter.

It 1? expected that State Bac?

chosen by Governor Mann to act or*
the part of Virginia In the tnvestiga- 1
tlon which Is to be made of oysters in
the Potomac River. The result of the.
conference held In Washington Mon?
day waa an agreement tor analyses
to be made bya chemist and a bac?
teriologist from each of the States of
Virginia and Maryland, and the Bu?
reau of Chemistry of the national gova>
eminent was asked to lend its aid.
I which its representatives agreed to do.
Dr. Ferguson mad* the bacteriologi?
cal examinations which res alt ed in
I condemnation of the Elisabeth River. ?
Hampton Creak and other waters by
State authorities, the effect being pro?
hibition of the marketing of oysters
from infected territory.
The motion which brought the war?
ring aide* together In the Washing
tlon meeting was made by State Dniry
and Food Commissioner W. D. Saun
ders. who returned to his office yester?
day.
Virginia officials have feeling against
the Bureau of Chemistry because it
gave this State no notice of its in?
vestigation of conditions of the Poto?
mac, and consequently no choice of
protection to the oyster industry.
Mr. Saunders says that the feeling
shown in the meeting was caused bv
the intemperate remarks of cyster
planters and dealers, who were not
properly in the gathering nor entitled
to be heard there.
