DOWN TO DEATH.
jAn Electric Car, Heavily Loaded,
' Goes Through a Bridge
Between Fifty and -Sixty Persons Are
Drowned Like Rats in a Trap.
Homo Twenty Escaped by Swimming The
Cor TVixb Currying Hlght-Sccrs to the.
Scene of a Sham llnttlo In Honor
of the Queen's Birthday.
VicroniA, B. C, May 37. The most
terrible accident thnt over took place
in this vicinity occurred about two
o'clock Tuesday afternoon when an
electric car fell through tbo Point El
lice bridge into an arm of James bay,
' A sham battlo at MaoAuley point
was on the programmo cfl part oi too
celebration of tho Queen's birthday
'and nearly tho whole of the population
of tho city had-gono out to witness it.
'Victoria prolongs tho celebration of
the yucca's Dtrttutny, moro man many
of the older cities and celebrates it
moro enthusiastically. Tho day was
practically a holiday in the city.
Tho electric cars running out to the
scene of tho battlo had been over
crowded all tho forenoon. Every car
was full, not only inside, but as many
as could do so clung on the outside ns
The car to which tho accident hap
pened contained about eighty persons.
Even the roof was occupied.
In crossing the Point Ellico bridgo it
loft the track, crashed through the
'railings and fell into tho water, 75 foot
'below.' The fall was so sudden and
unexpected that all the passengers
ere carried down with it.
Tho car floated for a moment and
then was carried down by the weight
of motal work attached to it Those
inside wore unablo to escape and wore
.drowned liko rats in a trap. Some of
those on tho outside escaped by swim
ming, but many, Btunned by tho fall or
unablo to swim, were drowned.
It is believed now that fifty or sixty
persons were drowned, but it is as yet
impossible to ascertain the real num
ber. It is difficult to learn who was on
tho car when It took the fatal plunge,
and it is equally difficult to learn how
many escaped. It will probably bo
several days before the real extent of
the disaster can be learned.
As soon as possible the work of re
covering tho bodies was begun and is
now being pushed vigorously forward.
Up to 10:30 p. m. sixty-two bodies
have been taken from the bay. Twenty
persons known to have been on tho
bridgo at the time of the accident are
missing and it is supposed that they
have perished. The car register shows
90 fares and it is probable that over
125 were on board.
THE MICHIGAN CYCLONE.
Forty People Were Killed and That Many
More Injured Much Damage to Prop
erty. Dkthoit, May 27. The cyclone which
devastated the northern portion of
Oakland county Mondaj-evening swept
a path half a mile wide and 10 miles
long from west to east, clearing the
earth of nearly everything movable.
About forty persons were killed out
right and fully that number were in
jured, some of whom will die.
The cyclone first struck earth six
miles west of Ortonville and passed
half a mile north of that village. In
these six miles of devastated country
before Ortonville was reached, 15 per
sons were killed and about twenty in
jured; some fatally.
About eighteen farm houses were de
stroyed in the lino of the storm from
Ortonville to Oakwood, but only two
persons were killed. Four others were
probably fatally injured and eight or
ten moro or less seriously hurt.
The three miles stretch from Oak
wood to Thomas is a scene of heart
rending desolation and wreckage.
Everything in the path of the cyclone
was leveled. In and around Thomas,
the death list is large and many are in
jured. After completing its work of de
struction at Thomas, the cyclone evi
dently separated, ono section going
northeast and doing an immense
amount of damage between Thomas
and Dryden, in La Pero county, and
the other following a southeasterly di
rection to North Oxford.
After leaving North Oxford, tho
path of the southeast cyclone is marked
at intervals until Mt. Clemens is
reached, where great damage was done
and many persons injured.
After passing Dryden and Whigvllle,
in La Pcre county, tho next heard
from the other storm was in Saui Lac
county, 30 miles away, at tho village of
Amadore, which was nearly swept away.
The funnel-shaped cloud struck a mile
west of the village, and in a path.half a
mile wide and six and a half miles
long, to tho shore of Lake Huron,
every building was moro or less dam
aged. Tuscola county was also visited by a
wind storm of cyclonic violence Mon
day evening. Nearly every building
in the path of the storm which started
near Gilford and travoled directly cast
