PLUNGED TQ THEIR DEATH
Frightful Motor-Car Accident at
A Heavy Electric Motor-Uar With From
Twenty to Thirty Passengers Plunges
Into a viaduct Draw and Drops Into
the it Ivor One H andreot and One Feet
Below, and All Aboard aro Drowned.
Ci.EVKiiA.ND, Ohio., Nov. 16.?A heavy
olectrlo motor oar, ooatalnlng between
twenty and thirty passengers wont
through the draw of the Central via?
duct at 7:45 o'clock this evening and
dropped one hundred and one feet to
the rivor below. It is a horror, the Ii t o
of which has never occurred here be?
fore. The Central viaduct is a hugo
stilt bridge 3,000 foet long, mado of
iron. It oonneots the HeightB and tho
prosporouB residence soction on tho
south aido with the business center of
Directly over the river is a draw
bridge of tho pivot swinging pittern,
and this is 10L feet above the surface of
the water. The south aide street rail?
road passes over the bridge and on
cither Bide of tho draw thore is a safoty
switch, which unless the conductor
alights and holdB up a handle will send
a car into tho gutter Instead of allowing
it to go on the draw.
First reports from tho scene of the
disaster seem to place the blame on the
conductor. These were to the effect
that the ill-fated motor car, containing
between twenty and thirty people ap?
proached tho draw just as a vessel was
nearlng it and the bridge attendants
had closed the big iron gates and were
preparing to swing the draw.
As 1b tho rulo tho oar stopped and the
conductor wont forward to release the
swltoh in case the way was clear. lie
must have beon blinded by the eleotrlc
lights, for an oye-witness declares that
although tho gates wero closed and the
draw was already in motion, the con?
ductor raised the switch handle. The
motorman applied tho current and the
car shot forward and struck tho gates
I with a orash.
There was only a moment's pause,and
I then the heavy car ground its way
through the wreckage and plunged over
the brink into tho biaok abyss, amid the
Boreams and frantic struggles of tho
pasBODgers, who at tho first Intimation
of danger rushed for the rear door.
Tne car struck the water with a great
oplaeh and thenthoro was alienee. Soon
men began to rush about shouting and
police patrol wagons and ambulances
wero Boon flying to the spot in response
to telephone calls. In an incredibly
short spaco of time the work of reBCue
The captain of the bridge guard says;
"I saw this oar coming rapidly toward
the draw just as I had given the signal
to swing it to admit of the passage of a
vessel. I waived my hands and hallooed
to the motorman to stop, but apparently
he paid no attention to me. The car
came on. Just before It went over the
brink the motorman jumped and ran
This Btatement does not agree with
those of eye- witnesses, who declare
that the conduotor went ahead to open
tho switch,which Is abont 300 feet away
from the draw, and motioned for tho car
to come ahead. Certain it Is that the
conductor mounted the car again and
went down with the paanonaers to
death, and it will never be possible to
tell exactly what he did beforo the ac?
Tho railway ofilclals say they are at
present unable to give tho namoB of the
conductor and motorman who were in
charge of the car. Tho pollen are look?
ing for the motorman. The exact num.
hue of passengers in /ho car will not be
known until all the bodies are recov?
ered The fare register in the car,some
of those who escaped say, showed that
twenty five fares had been collected.
There may have been other pausen
gers with transfers which would not
havo been rung up on the register. As
near aB can be learned there wore fifteen
at least, and possibly twenty ?uraona in
the car whon it mado the plunge. Seven
unidentified bodies aro at the morgue
now, and ono man, whose name has not
yet be n learned, 1b at a hospital in an
unconscious condition. So far as oan
bo learned he ia the only one who es?
caped instant death.
The work of rescuing the bodies went
on by the glaring light of the lamps on
the fire boat. By 10:30 five more bodies,
making twelve in all, had been taken
from the river. Among them was a
young woman with blonde hair and
fairly well dressed, being the body, ap?
parently, of a shop girl going home
from work. By her aide in the dead
wagon lay the body of a woman about
50 years of age and near here was
another of a woman about 40 years old.
Scores of persons living on the south
side who had relatives or friends work?
ing or visiting on the east side flocked
to the scone of the accident and visited
the morgues to make anxious inquiries
about their missing friends. In the con?
fusion, however, but little could be
learned from them. Perhaps tho persons
for whom they were looking, were in
the throngs abont the bridgo, for up to
11 o'clock to-night not a ainglo body bad
Word just comes from the scene of
the wreck that a dredge has been secured
and that the wrecked car will be raised
bodily from the bottom of the river. If
that is done, tho remainder of the bodies
will soon be recovered, for It la probable
that low, if any, of the bodiea havo
floated away, tho river being practically
without current at that point.
The motorman, whose name 1b Rotters,
had been in tho employ of the company
four years, and was regarded as a thor ?
oughly competent and reliable man.
Tho conductor, whoso name ia Hoffman,
and who ia in tho wreck, had boon on
I the road two years. He albo had the
i full confidence of tho company. Tho
I first body identified was that of Honry

taken to the hospital In an unoonsolouB
condition is Patrick Looney, of Lyman
Btreet. He reoovered consciousness
shortly before midnight, but is in a

He said when he reoovered conscious
nosB that his recollection of the accident
waB not very clear. The first intima?
tion he had that an aooldent was to oc?
cur was when he felt the oar falling.
Before he knew what had happened he
became unconscious and remembered
nothing more until ho came to at the
hospital. Looney's Impression was that
the car was full of people, though he
could not remember whether it was a
single car or double train.
Three more bodies have been identi?

Constantinople, Nov. 10.? The news
from the different provinoea of Asia
Minor oontlnueH to be gravo, confirming
beyond doubt tho impression which has
prevailed hero for a long time past,
that the movement haa now assumed
proportions which have placed It be?
yond the control of the Turkish author?
ities, even if the latter were really de?
sirous of punishing the Mussulmans for
massacreing Armenians. In fact it is
considered very doubtful whether the
Turkish troops would fire on Mussul
mans If they should be ordered to do so.
it is now known that thoro are about j
800 victims of the Kbarput massacre,
and that eight of the twelve buildings
belonging to the Amerioan missionaries
there were sacked and burned in spite
of the assurances of the porte to the
United States ambassador, Alexander
W. Terrell, that the lives and property
of the Americans would bo protected,
and although It was announced that
Turkish gendarmes had been detailed
to guard the mission. The Amerioan
missionaries, however, escaped, and are
now in a place of safety. Mr. Torrell
has notified tho porte that tho United
States will bold it responsible for tho
lives of the missionaries.
The inhabitants around Kbarput are
in a state of great distress from hunger
and if the cold weather was to set in
suddenly there would bo much more
suffering and considerable loss of life.
From Guran, In the villayot of Slvas,
where the Kurds have been besieging

No definite aotlon ia known to have
been taken by the ambassadors of the
powers, but it is reported that they will
join in a note to the porte informing the
government that in spite of the remon
stranoeB and recommendations of the
powers, mattorB have now reached a
Btage in Asia Minor where it is evident
that the sultan's authority is not suffi?
cient to quell the repeated dis'urbanceo
which are breaking out, and it has be?
come necessary for the powers in the
interests of Christianity and humanity
to put an end to those disorders by oc?
cupying jointly various portions of the
Turkish empire until order is fully re?
stored and a better system of govern?

In order to carry out tho policy of the
powers the most powerful fleet ever
gathered together is being assembled

of the opposition to the pastor is claimed
to have been partly political, the pastor
being a Democrat and an aotlve a..p
porter of his own and his brother's
party. Tho trouble grew until it lu
volved the whole congregation. The
faction which opposed him by virtue of
this withdrawal on Mr. Cleveland's part

and Miss Yettke were recovered,
burned beyond recognition. The build?
