and a. Many More Terrible lo
Jured Th. Falae Work waa
ClscroxATl, June Ifl. The false work

Covington, K.; fell at 10A"i a. m. yes
tenlny, carrj-ih? down wit?i it niriety
men. of whom a large number the ex
act fiunre iH'injraarct unknown were
buried under the debris of the bridge
and killed, among them being Andrew
and Albert llaird. two of the contract
ors. The construction of the bridge waa he
gun early last fall, and was used for
foot passengers and street railway traf
fic. The piers have been completed,
and the work of fixing the heavy
pieces of iron had begun. A track
from the Newport side had been run
out on the first pier to the heavy iron.
The false work ran up HO feet from the
Xnt a atiek of the false work from
pier to pier remained, and the river was
filled witli timbers and iron work with
scores of men struggling for life. i'w-I
6f the terrible accident spread rapidly,
and soon a crowd of hundreds had
gathered, and the work of rescuing the
bodies was at once lwgun. Itv 12
o'clock twenty-two ltodii'S had been
taken out and the work was being
pushed with vigor.
Cincinnati patnd wagons responded
to a hurried call, and the dead and
wounded were carried away as fast as
taken ont. The accident is supposed
to 1m due to the heavy weight of the
iron floor supports, the false work not
being strong enough.
When the crash came it was but a
few moments Until liolh banks were
filled with peopie. A big portion of
the false work was submerged, and
with it were tile unfortunate work
men. The scene was a horrible one.
In a minnte the air was filled
with the shrieks of the injured
and dying. 1 hose who could free them
selves from the tangled network of
timlier. struggled to the surface of the
water and tried to get ashore. One
after anothr gave up the desperate
and uneven struggle and sank into the
murky w.ter. The lwnks were
rrowded. but not a soul could get to
the rescue of the poor fellows.
As soon as possible volunteers went
to work to get out the dead and dy
ing. It was a grewsome task. Among
the first to lie taken out was one of the
Itainl brothers. His body was in a
horrible condition, bis back broken,
and neck crushed and broken.
At S o'clock the steamer Hercules
Carrol commenced the work of remov
ing the iron and timbers from the
river, in the hope of recovering the
bodies pinned under the wreck.
Although the excitement, caused by
the aii'idcnt was intense, there was a
noticeable absence of the heartrending
scenes usually accompanying such
catastrophes. Most of the men were
strangers, but a few had families, wives
and children, on the seencto add their
tears and cries to the grim spectacle.
As the accident occurred on the di
viding line between Covington and
Newport, the coroners on both sides
will bold in'incsts. Itodics landed on
the Covington side were taken in charge
by Coroner Wilson, while those landed
in Newport were placed under the care
of Coroner lavis.
The corner of the Newport pier is
badly broken and appears to have been
weak. The story was started that the
pier, by bniikinjr. had caused the dis
aster, but there is apparently no foun
dation for this.
Troliably one of the saddest eases
conniM'tcd with the disaster was the
death of James Johnson, of Pittsburgh,
I'a., who was one of the important
siiltcoTitractors- who built the canti
lever bridge lietwecn Cincinnati and
Newport. Mr. Johnson reached New
port early yesterday morning.and after
eating breakfast at his old boarding
bouse on Fifth street, went to the new
Licking bridge to talk with someof the
workmen, many of whom were his in
timate aco,uai ntanccs. Johnson was
on the false work when it gave way.
Hisliody was recovered at 2:S0 p. m.
Much sympathy is felt for poor Jack
Fierce, the veteran newspaper man.
When the news of the accident reached
him the man's anguish was pitiful:
His eldest son. Fred, formerly secretary
of the llnilders exchange, was on the
ill-fated bridge when it fell, having
gone to work Monday. For a l-ng
time Jack would not go near
the terrible sii'ne, fearing he
would learn the news that would
break the heart of the good mother
lying ill at her home, unconscious of
the accident. Finally he mustered up
the conraee to visit the wreck, tho hos
pitals anil the morgue, but could find
no trace of his missing son. who un
doubtedly went down in the awful

London, June 1(1. The fixing of June
'it as the (late for the dissolution of
parliament looks like an artful dodge
on the part of the conservatives to gain
an advantage over their opponents by
preventing any borongh elections from
leing held on a Satunlay. The liber
als have been afraid of such an occur
ence, and have for weeks l"e-n urging,
through their organs the ir justice of
virtually disfranchising numbers of
workmen, who are mainly liberals
Thousand of workingmen cannot vote
at all unless they do it on a Satunlay,
and in addition to those wlo will be
wholly disfranchised, there are many
who will have their votot crowded
out in another way. When an elec

tbe workingmen must wait until ft or 9
o'clix-k in the evening before they can
go to the polls The balloting ma
chinery is often too slow in Its opera

consequence some votes fail to be re

severely against the liberals than

It is expected that the elections in

M ichael Davitt bitterly scored Harring
ton for having incited his comrades to

break a Justinian heed. Davitt de
dared that he was opposed to all viiw

A MOOTED QUESTION.

New York, June 10. The statement
made by Chauncey M. Depew that the
differences between Whitelaw Reid and
Typographical I'nion No. ft had been
adjusted, and that the union had re
quested his candidacy, is a topic of
mnch discussion. It was stated by an
officer of the union to a United Press
reporter yesterday that Mr. Depew had
spent some time with Mr. Reid at his
home on Ophir farm, Tuesday night, in
regard to the matter but that no set
tlement had been reached. The United
Press reporter's informant said there
was very little likelihood of a settle
ment between the union and Mr. Reid
being reached. The members of the
union say that if its committee at Min
neapolis gave Mr. Depew to under
stand that a settlement had been
reached between Mr. Reid and the
union, it placed tbe anion in a false
position, and exceeded its authority.
At a meeting of the International
Typographical anion in Philadelphia

the setenn1 son of James G. Elaine, ex
secretary of state, died! st 11 a. m. yes
terday, at the McCormiclc mansion. 1S5
Rush st reet. He had been ill but a few
hours and his death was wholly un
expected. Septicaemia, which devel
oped late Friday night from a
bowel complaint, was the immediate
cause of death. Mrs. Emmons Blaine
and her son, McCormick Blaine, S
fears old, and Mrs. Chris McCormick
were the only members of the family at
the bedside when Mr. Blaine passed
way. Death came so quickly that
there was not time to summon the oth
er members of the family, Mr.
and Mrs W. (I. McCormick, who.
were in the house at the time. In
effectual efforts were made throughout
the night to reach James G. Blame and
Mrs Blaine to convey the intelligence
of their son's condition. The family
left Augusta, Me., several days ago for
Bar Harbor, Mr. Blaine's summer
residence, but it was impossible to
effect the delivery of a telegram
either to Mr. Blaine or to anyone who
could transmit the message to him.
The New York and Boston repre
sentatives of the McCormick company
were instructed to exert every effort to
convey the information to some mem
ber of Mr. Blaine's family or to Mr.
Chris McCormick, who went to New
York some days ago, but np to
noon the efforts had availed nothing.
Mr. W. G. McCormick immediately as
sumed charge of all matters incident to
the calamitous event. Representatives
of the local press and the press
associations were admitted to tha
house a few minutes after
Mr. Blaine's death and were
given this statement of tho
attending physicians Drs. Billings and)
Alpost, which was as follows: Mr.
Emmons Blaine died at 11:15 o'clock
of aeptaeaemia (blood poisoning), due
to the disease of the bowels It waa
Impossible to obtain fuller particulars
from the medical attendants at that
Mr. McCormick was insistent in his
requests that no announcement of the
death of his brother-in-law should get

advices bad reached the Blaine family.
"It would be a death blow to them all to
receive the dreadful news without
preparation, he said. For this reason
all information was withheld until 13
Sir. Blaine's death is due, indirectly
no doubt, to the ordeal he passed
through as the chief director of the in
terests of his father at the Minneapolis
convention. He labored incessantly for
several days previous to the opening of
the convention and throughout its ses
sions nor did he relinquish his labors
after the nomination of Mr. Harrison.
Mr. Blaine has been nominally gen
eral agent for the Baltimore A Ohio
Railroad Co. since last fall. When the
officials at the general superintendent's
office heard the news they were dnm
founded. "Why. only yesterday, said
the chief clerk. "Mrs Blaine sent word
to us that although her husband waa
unable to attend to any business, she
thought he would be at the office in
few day. We are all inexpressibly sor
iirised and shocked."
Prior to his engagement with the
Baltimore Ohio, Mr. Blaine held
prominent positions with several other
roads He was a universal favorite
among other men. Several years ago
he was secretary to the president of
the West Virginia Central road,
and his better position in Chi
cago was the reward of a strict atten
tion to the duties of his office there.
Prior to his engagement with the West
Virginia Central he was assistant
freight agent of the Atchison, Topeka
& Santa Fe and at other times
was with the Chicago A North
western road and other corporations.
Mr. Blaine returned to Chicago from
Minneapolis Saturday greatly exhaust
ed. Monday he felt much better, but
on Tuesday he was much worse again.
Wednesday his symptoms began to
alarm him, and Doctors Billings and
Alport were summoned. They
found the patient already in a
semi-critical , condition, but it
was believed that his exceptionally
vigorous constitution would pull him
through. Friday noon, however, there
was a sudden and alarming rise in
temperature, and the physicians knew
that the danger was imminent and
required heroic treatment. It waa
agreed that nothing but a sur
gical operation could save the
sufferer's life, and preparations
were made to perform it. The tempera
ture was so high, however, that it was
put off until to-day, the patient mean

and antiseptic treatment to prevent.
if possible, the absorption of ichor

vailing, however, and when the hour
for attempting the operation arrived,

of the Chicago and Calumet clubs of
