Flatbottom Ferry Boat Capsizes
in tho River at Cleveland.
Tho Most Appalling Disaster Since
tho Viaduct Horror Last Winter.
It Wai T.oudcd With Laborers nt ttiollmo
Uetnccn Fifteen mill Twenty IVraoim
Drowned Fourteen Dead Undies
Uno llcen I'ounil so l'nr.
Cu.vuland, July 17. The most ap
palling disasterwhich has occurred in
Cleveland, exoept the Viaduct horror,
last winter, when a loaded car plunged
100 feet into tho river, occtincd Thurs
day tit three o'clock. While the llnt
bJttomcd ferryboat, loaded with be
tween forty and fifty laborers, was
crossing in' the old river channel, it
was capsired nud all the men lli.ro wt.
into the channel and between fifteen
and turnty drowned, 14 bodies having
altcady been taken from tho water.
The nrcident was due to a panic among
the men on board. Tho boat was
loaded so heavily that the gunwales
was only thtuc inches above the water,
and a passing tug made waves which
came into the boat. At once there
was a uish to the other side and tho
boat went under anil spilled the men.
They wore nil membci.s of a gang of
ore handlers and weie coming to their
homes. Tho scene in the ilver, as de
scribed by the men on the tug and the
steamer Langdon, which were passing,
was one of a wild stiugglo for life.
Men grappled e.ieh other and went
down in fierce embiace. Lines and
life prcscivers were thrown fiom both
vessels and many were pulled aboard.
Others of the unfortunates were res
cued by small boats anil s-ome swam
ashore. The life saving crow was sum
moned and the work of scinching for
bodies at once begau. Within a short
time 12 of the unfortunates were
brought to shoie and taken (o tho
morgue for identification Those who
escaped scattered in every direction
and it is uncertain just how many lives
wcro lost; but 20 men are toporlcd miss
ing and tho dragging of tho channel is
still In progress. Hie crowding of the
boat was due to the fact that the ore
gangs pay just so much a trip on the
ferry and tho moie that got on the less
the cost to the passengers. The men
mostly lived on Gunge street and Sei
dell nvenue, which lead down lt the
docks nnd ship 3-ards and the scenes
there are indescribable. Men, women
and children wcro running about
bcrcaming and tin; disorder which pre;
vailed made it impossible to get intelli
gent stories from eyen those who were
rescued and have icturned home. The
men were all Germans or Poles and
their families can not speak English.
By 11 o'clock Thursday night 14 bod
ies had been recovered and taken to
the various morgues. There was nn
immense crowd soon gathcied on the
bank of the river, watching the work
of the boats conducting the search.
Among them was Wm. llcnlow.a press
man. In moving about he lost his
footing, fell into the river nnd was
drowned. The work of identification
is proceeding slowly, owing to the bod
ies having been taken to various
morgues, the scenes enacted by the
undertakers wero disgusting in tho ex
treme. They almost catno to blows in
their anxiety to gain possession of the
bodies and the police had to interfere
in the interest of decency, nnd threaten
to arrest them.
Cu.vnr.ANn, duly .17. At daybreak
Friday the crew of the tire tug Cleve-
lander returned to the old river bed to
continue the search for the bodies of
tho men di owned by the capsizing of
the ferryboat Thursday night. When
Capt, Motley and the life-saving crew
quit at 1 11. m., nfter a diligent search
of five hours, in which 15 bodies wero
hauled to thu surface, the crew- of the
Clevelander took tho life-savers' ap
paratus and continued the search un
til 5:30 a. m. It was resumed after
An hour nfter daybreak the streets
nnd bypaths leading to the scene of
the horror were packed with a 6tcady
stream of humanity. While hundreds
came out of curiosity, in the great
throng, however, wero many anxious
relatives of the missing. At nine
o'clock tho ndjoining docks were lined
with thousands of people watching the
search. The decks of the steamers
Bessemer and Wolf weie filled to over
flowing. It was estimated that nearly
10,000 people assembled to watch the
Tour boats, each containing tu o men,
glided about, trailing a line attached
to grappling hooks.
When the ill-fated scow was righted,
hats, caps "and dinner pails, floated
fioin underneath. There wero still
three bodies missing at unon.
