C(ause of the Ashtabula Accident.
The joint committee of the Ohio
Senate and House appointed to in
vestigate the cause of the rec nt
railroad disaster at Ashtabu~a, be
gn its session in Cohimbus on the
23d inst. Several witnesses wei e
exumined, among themi Mr. WVil
liams, an Assistant Roadmaster of
the road, whlo gave it as I is opinion
that the disaster was caused by the
terrific gale of wind prevailing at
the time. In support of his theory
be produced a report from the
signal service, showving that at the
time of the accident a gale was blow
ing at a velocity of 300 miles an
hour, when the train went on the
bridge. Winnd struck the whole
sur~face of the cars at a force esti
mnited at five pounds to the square
foot, which broke some of the bolts,
and the terrible craish followed. It
is said that several members of the
committee are inclined to accept
this new theory as the true one.
SOUTH CAnoIn.-It has been pub
lished that information from the
Senate South Carolina committee
was to the effect that they would
report that Chamberlain had been

There is no doubt that the Senate
committee will make such a report,
anid the value of it may be measured
when it is known that during the
whole progress of its investigation
the Senate committee has taken no
testimony. at all bearing on the
election. -Its whole time has been
occupied in hunting up and ex
amining witnesses in reference to
the Ellenton and Hamburg affairs.

domain of dispute, leaving only to
