Baltimore, Md., July 24, 1883.
A terrible, calamity occurred
Tivoli, an excursion resort on the' Pa,"
tapsco, ten miles from this city, about 10
o'clock last night, by which many lives
-were lost, the number being estimated between
sixty and seventy. The accident
vas occasioned by the j giving -way of the
outer portion of the pier, on which several
hundred persons were congregated awaiting
a boat to return to this city.
The locality is in a small bay district,
about two miles from North Point Lighthouse.
It was- .formerly-'known as Holly-Grove,
and was the first regular excursion
place fitted up near the city, about fifteen
years ago, and was the most popular resort
at that time and for several years
afterward. Yesterday an excursion was
given to Tivoli under the management of
the Mount Royal Beneficial Society of the
Catholic Church of Corpus Christi, of
which Father Starr is pastor, Mount Hoyal
avenue and Mosher street.
The excursion went down on the barge
Cockade City, which was towed by the tug
Amanda Powell. The barge was formerly
an old canal-boat, which had been fitted up
with several decks for excursion purposes,
and used as such for several years. Yesterday
she made three trips,4 the last being
made from this city between 6 and 7
o'clock last evening, and reached Tivoli
before 10 o'cldck.
During the day she had taken down about
five hundred persons, and on her last trip
about one hundred. A large number of
those who went down during the day had
remained, intending to return on the last
trip. When the. barge approached all those
on the shore made a rush for the end of the
wharf, which is several hundred feet long,
and were closely packed together at the
gate, about twenty-five feet from the end,
impatiently awaiting admittance througn
the gate. As the barge came alongside and
struck the wharf it suddenly and without
warning gave way, and a large portion of
the crowd was precipitated into the water,
which is about ten feet deep. Many were
able to save themselves by fleeing toward
the shore as the outer end of the pier
crumbled and fell. Darkness added to the
confusion and terror, and little cotld be
done at once to rescue the drowning, most
of whoni'were women and children. The
first news of the disaster reached this city
a little after 2 o'clock this morning, when
the barge landed at Henderson's wharf,
bringing a number of the bodies of the
Up to noon sixty-five bodies had been
brought to the city. All except four
have been identified. The following
is a list, with ages, so far as ascertained.
It will be seen that a greater proportion
were young ladies and children:
John McAnny, Mrs. John McAnny and
infant, Mrs. Crouch and two children,
Katie and Lena; Mrs. Thomas McLaughlin
and three children, Katie, Mary and John,
aged thirteen, ten and nine years; Mrs.
Keller, Mrs. Rebecca Erman and daughter
Belle, aged sixteen; Miss Mary Burns, Miss
Kate Colbert, Miss Laura Swearer, Maggie
lnompson, Maggie .Burns, Wilhelmina

thirty; Bridget Gaffey, aged twenty-eight;
Winfield Gaffey, aged twenty-one; Minnie
O'Neill, aged three; Fannie LeMaria,Mary
Lindburg, two sisters named Parr, Annie
Owens, Mollie Murphy, Mary Hughes.aged
seventeen; Olivia Scull, an infant; Mary
Hammill, aged eighteen; Alice Ryan,
Johanna O'Connell, Mary Giblin, Elizabeth
Connors, aged twenty-two; Annie
Miller, aged twenty-three ; Elizabeth Bookman,
aged sixty, and a daughter, Elizabeth,
aged nineteen; Patrick Ryan, aged
thirty-eight; James Owens, W. A. P.
Jacobs, Thomas S. Mo?eman, Daniel Gibbon,
infant, Albert Ross, aged forty; Jesse
Bumwalt, Henry Tonburg, Wm. Garmer,
aged eighteen; Bernard Gately, Edward
Oalahan and Annie Weidel.
They resided in almost every section of
the city, being members of Catholic
churches in different localities. As soon as
the bodies had been deposited on the wharf
the barge went back to Tivoli, and before
seven o'clock this morning had returned to
Henderson's Wharf with her second load of
dead, numbering over thirty. By this time
the news of the calamity had spread
throughout the city, and thousands gathered
at the wharf and in the vicinity.
Baltimore, Md., July 24 4 p. m.
Up to this hour the number of bodies recovered
at Tivoli is sixty-six. It is estimated
that the loss will reach between
ninety and one hundred. The city authorities
have taken action looking to the burial
Df those victims whose relatives are too
poor to provide it themselves.
The Sun, in an extra issue after 1 o'clock,
says: "The boat had made three trips to
jTivoli. The morning boat took down one
hundred, the 2 o'clock boat twelve hundred
and the 6 o'clock boat seventy-five. This
latter boat reached the pier at 8:20, and
prepared to take all hands back to the city
kt once, as requested by Father Starr. The
excursionists, knowing this was the only
boat, dashed along the pier until they were
stopped by the gate near the steamer. Some
youths tried to climb over the gate, and a
tnan and boy seated themselves on the rail,
tvith their legs hanging. A too sudden
movement caused the rail to break, and the
two were thrown into the water.
A commotion followed, and there was a
sudden crash and a chorused shriek. Splinters
flew in every direction, and about two
hundred people were struggling among the
broken timbers in eight feet of water. The

heard them two miles away. Those who
witnessed the scene say that it was sickening.
The moon had gone down, and the
only light was that shed by two feeble coal-oil
lamps. Some rescuers took barge lanterns
and set them on the wharf. Two of
them exploded,' and added fresh terror to
the scene. Those on the decks of the barge
threw life-preservers, stools, and benches
Into the water. These struck a great many
and knocked them insensible; others let
down planks and ropes. Indescribable
hopelessness and terror reigned. Shrieks,
ci;rses, groans, cries for God to " Save us,"
and heart-rending prayers for help.
Those males drowned were trying to help
women and children. After the confusion
a huge fire was built on the shore for those
who had been saved, and their clothes were
soon drying. Dredging for bodies then
commenced. Twenty-eight bodies, were
found up to ten o'clock, when Father Starr
took upon'himself the responsibility of ordering
the boat up to Baltimore, and it
came up, and went back at daybreak.
The bodies at the Eastern Police Station
i . were laentinea tnis afternoon as unose oi
If, . Alfred Burgan. aged eighteen, and Miss
ltoaf !Kate Ives, aged twenty-eight; and the two
children as those of John McAnany, leaving
alive but one of that family, a little
boy of six years, who was rescued. The
bodies of two more children are said to
have been found, but only one of them, tho
child of Bernard McGahan, has reached
the city. At 8 o'clock this evening Coroner
Morfit began au inquest, at which
Father Starr, pastor of the Church of Corpus
Christi, was present.
VERDICT OF THE JURY.
Following is the verdict: "We find that
Louisa Swearer and others came to their
deaths by drowning, by the breaking of the
bridge at Tivoli on the night of July 23
and that the authorities of the place did
not use proper care and precaution to
rent the occurrence."

said: "Ketchum, when you can spare

Ketchum asked: "What in

Spooner, sadly: "won't you O a little i
thing like that for an old friend?"
"Certainly," said Ketchum, and going'
to his desk, he drew out a sheet of foolscap
and commenced to write as follows:
"I, Moses Spooner, of so-and-so, being
of infirm body but of sound mind,
do, etc." "Now about the property,"
said Ketchum. Spooner
waited a moment, until he could properly
control himself, then said: "I
desire that my one-half interest in the
Big Fissure be sold and the proceeds,
after all debts and charges are paid, be
sent to my old mother, Patience Spooner,
in Pike County, Missouri." Ketchum
putitddwn. Spooner continued: "My
undivided one-third interest in the Lame
Duckl wish to have sold, and, after
paying $1,000 to your head clerk, Jones
(he is a friend of mine), send the rest to
my mother, with instructions that it be
paid to Missouri Price, also of Pike."
Then, with increasing emotion, he added:
'Sou would before this have been my
wife, but I could not think of making
the dear girl my nurse." Spooner con
tinued to dispose of his property, and
finally said: "That is all except $8,000
which I have in the bank at Salt
Lake City. Put down $5,000 to your
little daughter, Nellie, Mr. Ketchum,
the other $3,000 to yourself. Also add
thatl appoint you and your clerk Jones,
my executors, to serve without bonds."
Then he went off by himself, took a seat on
a barrel, and for some moments buried
his face in his hands. Ketchum called'
Jones to the desk, had him copy on legal
cap' the will in a neat, clerkly hand,
called up Spooner and two witnesses,
had the will signed, sealed and witnessed,
folded the paper, placed it in a large
envelope, had the envelope properly
and laid away carefully in
the safe. Then said Ketchum: "Spooner,
let us take a little drink for old friendship
sake." "I cannot" said Spooner.
"You know my weakness. The
doctors say one drink might kill
me, and a protracted spree would be
sure to." A light shone in Ketchum's
eyes. The doctors beblowed," said he.
"One drink would not hurt any man.

Spooner, come and brace up. After
the necessary resistance Spooner yielded

that he felt no bad effects, that, indeed,
it made him better. He took another.

and Jones alternated in supplying him.
He kept on for two weeks, but no
symptoms of the fatal spasm manifested

a physician came in. Ketchum asked

physician down to the springs, twenty
miles away. That day Joe , the
owner of the mine, came down town,
and Ketchum tremblingly inquired how
much was due to Spooner on the books
of the mining company. "Its the other
way," said Joe; "1 bought him a suit of
clothes, paid a back board bill in Salt

It may be that wool can still be grown .J

It is about twenty years since the
game of croquet began to come m
vogue, and a few years after that it had
become the great American outdoor
game. It had the advantage of afford
mg pleasant but not violent exercise;
of giving opportunity for manual skill
and intellectual ingenuity; of being a
game at which ladies could play as well
as men; of being easily comprehended,
and easily adapted to any place; and
last but not least, of being inexpensive.
With such recommendations, it is no

has been on the wane. A new and powerful

to children and to people in far-back

In these days of rowing giants and athletic
heroes fine physical development is
more observed than ever before since the

looked up to far more than in the days of

fewer specimens of well-developed manhood
than then. An e missary of this paper
met a magnificent specimen of physical
power a few days since in the person of
Dr. A. TV. McNames, of- Waterloo. His

injury and experienced a general debility,
which seemed similar to the effects produced
by malaria. My back was very
weak. I had no appetite, and at times
loathed food. My lips were parched and
cracked. My head felt as though it were
entirely open at the top and it pained me
on the side intensely. In six weeks' time
I had fallen away from 208 pounds to less
than 170. I was in a most wretched condition.
I was completely discouraged."
" "What did the doctors say about you?"
" Almost everything. I consulted no less
than six different physicians. They all
treated me and none did me any good. At
that time I was suffering intensely. I could
not sit upright but was obliged to rest in a
cramped, uneasy position. I was compelled,
to urinate every five minutes and I
passed over three quarts everyday. I was
not living, I was existing.
" One night(how well Iremember it!) my
wife had put the children all in bed when
the feeling came over me that I should live
but a very short time. My wife and I
talked matters all over and I gave the minutest
directions as to what she should'do
alter I was gone. I was not in a flighty
condition by any means, for the doctoron
leaving town the day following, bade me
good-bye, saying he never expected to see
me again, for I was suffering with Bright's
disease of the kidneys in its last stages.
"Within the next lew dys more than twenty
friends came to bid me good-bye.
Among the number was Dr. John L. Clark.
He asked me what I had used in the way
of medicines. I told him. He then recommended
a remedy of which I had heard
much, but about which I was very skeptical.
If faith were an element of power it
certainly was lacking in my case."
" And so you did not try it?"
" On the contrary, I did try it, and to my
surprise it seemed to go to just the spot.
Indeed, it was the most palatable thing I
had taken into my mouth for months. J
" And did it cure you?"
"Do I look as if it did?"
"Yes, indeed. "What was it?'
" Warner's Safe Cure."
" A proprietary medicine 1"
" Of course. What of that? I suppose I
once had as great a prejudice against advertise!
medicines as any one could have.
When I was studying medicine at Ann
Arbor, Michigan, I used to vow with the
rest of the class that we would fight all
such remedies at all times. When a man
comes down to the last hour, however, and
bids his wife and friends good-bye, such
bigoted prejudices as these all vanish, I
can assure you, and any remedy that can
cure is gladly welcomed."
" And how have you been since then?"
"As well or better, than before."
" Do you still exert your strength?"
" Certainly. But I do not as
formerly. My strength is increasing every
day, and my health is number one. I know
that my life was saved by Warner's Safe
Cure, and I believe it is the best medicine
that was ever compounded by any chemist
orphyician. I am willingthe doctors should
sneer at me for such a statement if they
choose, but I have proven its truth, and am
prepared to stand by it."
The above experience should be of great
value to all who are suffering. It shows
the deceptive nature of this terrible malady;
that all symptoms are common to it
and that there "is but one way by which it
can be absolutely avoided.
The distance between New York and
Brooklyn is only a span.
