ABBIDGEOFDEATH. A Fearful Calamity on the Brooklyn Bridge Yesterday. TWO MASSES OF HUMANITY MEET. Neither can Pass the Other and Neither can Gire Way. HEAVY PRESSURE FROM BEHIND. Causes a Crush and a Panic that Kills Many People. SCORES DINUEROUSLY WOUNDED A Scene of Fiiirhtfnl Agony and Despair Graphically Described. LIST OF KILLED AND WOUNDED Some Stories of Hair-Breadth Escapes from a Terrible Death. .'• New Yobic, May — A fearful catas trophe occurred on Last River bridge this afternoon, by which a large number of people lost their lives. The narrowness of tho foot-way for passengers is the cause of tho horror. The majority of the dead aro so far unidentified. At about 4 o'clock a long line of people on foot in the center walk of the structure going from and coming to this city, thick ened, swelled and stopped in its motion just at the stairs leading up from the con crete roadway to the bridge proper. Strong men and feeblo women, manhood and in fancy were wedged together in that jam by (he fearful pressure of the crowd, which extended miles, one might say. on either end of tho line. It was a remorseless, fearful, stupid force that held its victims immovable as the stone foundation of the bridge itself. The stoppage lasted nearly an hour, dar ing which time scores of people fainted. i To relieve the jam, tho bridge officers re moved ?omo of the iron paling a few feet from the stairway on the New York side, when, of course, those unfortunate enough to be near the opening, weak and fainting at tho death, as they were, immediately fall belter shelter, heels over head down on the jagged, gravelly road beneath, a mass of braised, discolored human flesh. Scores wore trampled upon instantly and to stum ble was death. Men were dragged out of that heap of holjple 1 ?:? humanity, their faces ns b'ao as iaclj^o, aud life blood trickling out of their nostrils. Children and women were pale, uishtveled and dead. The road way on eiti.sr sido of lha. walk was strewn with dead trail dying— a pitiable sight and yet, it is said, no efforts were made by the bridge officials to stop people coming on the bridge. The dead and dy ing were carried off in wagons, carts, etc., improvised for the service, v.nd it was a long time tct'ore the police arrived and anything like order was restored or an ambulance appeared. Meanwhile, teauis were rushing both ways at full gallop over the roadways, which no one could tell, threatening the limbs and lives of those on foot who were attempting to assist the unfortunate vic tim', the police shouting themselves hoarse "clear tha way," wagons rattling over the roagh stone?-, men and women crying in all directions, made it a bedlam in deed. A parly of men in uniform did yeoman service at the spot as volunteer police to check the vulgar and carious. AT CHAMBERS BT3EET HOSPITAL here, there are lying thirteen dead, six unknown mou und six unknown women and George Smith, of No. 42 Watts street Tho office war- filled with people making frantic inquiries for missing friends, and with hysterical women.

THE SCENE IN CITT HALL POLICE STATION was simply terrible. Women were scream ing and wringing their hands ; men with torn clothing and bleeding faces, and all around the forms of the wounded, most of them unconscious, lying beside the walls. Every now and again frantic mothers would rush inquiring for some one, but there were none to answer. The revival of the insen sible occupied all thoughts. Then the jangle of the ambulance bells added to the confusion as wagon after wagon tore up to the door, and surgeons descended. A per fect stream of unconscious forms was borne into the station on stretchers as the ambulances were filled and driven away. "I was walking along the bridge to wards the New York entrance," said a man who held a young girl who was cry ing bitterly by the hand, "when I heard shouting i-.nd screaming suddenly arise in front ol" ma. Then I saw hats, sticks and hands stretched aloft, and with one scream the whole dense mass surged and swayed towards the gates. I suppose the people thought the bridge was coming down. Any way they FOUGUT, SCEEASIED AND YELLED LIKE DE MONS. Children and women were knocked down and trampled upon, and I was borne irre sistably out on the entrance. Then I found this little girl, who had lost her friends, and here we are safe, thank God!" The little girl, between her sobs, said her namewas Flora Davies, 02 Lewis street. "I went on the bridge" said Charles Bligh, 59 Third street, Brooklyn, "at about four o'clock, and as I was approaching the river span, I found myself unable to move either backward or forward. Women and children commenced screaming. Hun dreds of men climbed with great difficulty onto the beams, running over the rail roads and made their way to the carriage way. Many let themselves drop through between the beams, and were caught by those beneath. A number of women also escaped in this way. I escaped in this way myself. The police and others helped to pull out the dead and dying, and they v,-ere laid on the roadway until an ambu lance came. The ehrieks of children on the pathway were blood curdling:. They cried 'help, save me for God's sake,' but where ws were we could do nothing." THE SUPERINTENDENT 8 STOIiY. Mr. Martin, superintendent of tie bridge, was roen by a reporter a few min ntes after the accident. He r-p.id, <; ilve minutes before word came to coy office about the catastrophe, I received '?vord in answer to my inquiry, that everything v,; j .tt going on smoothly ou tha bridge, and I pedestrians were moving along quietly. I certainly have no idea \»hat caused the horrible tragedy, as various accounts have reached me. From four distinct sources I hear, however, that the panic was brought about by a gang of pickpockets. New York policemen had warning to-day, that thieves aud bunko men were opera ting the bridge, but as none of them were identified, of course we could do nothing. As «oon as I heard of the crush, I ordered the roadways to be thrown open, and peo are goirg across that way now. FHO3I THE SUN IIXTEA. There was a crush at the steps at the New York approach to Brook lyn bridge this afternoon, a panic followed and at least 14 persons were killed and many wounded. The crush began shortly before 4. At that hour thousands of peo ple were on the bridge, most of them com ing from Brooklyn. The air was clear and brisk and people walking rapidly. As the crowd approached a short flight of steps, those iv front pushed back for fear they might be precipitated over the steps, a distance of about six feet. These people, in drawing back from the steps, made the nucleus of a jam, for thousands behind them pushed on unheeding- Almost in stantly people began to shout "etand back" and '"give us room. : ' Meanwhile the crowd from New York, which was at the foot of tho stairs, got blocked. Men at the head of the New York crowd fought their way back, leaving aclea.iug space at the foot of the steps. The shouting and crowding from the Brooklyn side increased. It was utterly inexplicable. People in the advance guard of th« Brooklyn throng were pnshed in sfito of themselves toward the steps. The; seemed to have a horror of going over the steps, although the flight is only five or six feet high. They locked arms and pushed furiously back against the thousands coming steadily over from Brooklyn. In a few minutes, at a point just above the steps, there was a slow yielding to the frightful pressure from be hind, and the front of the crowd waa forced nearer and nearer to the edge of the steps. Women and children were screaming for help, and men were shouting con fusedly. Umbrellas, parasols and canes were thrown over the rails at the side by people who needed their hands to fight their way oat of the desperate crowd. At last with a single shriek that cut through above the clamor of thousands, the voice of a young girl who lost her footing on the perilous edge and fell headlong, was heard. She struck the pathway at the foot of the steps. She raised herself on her hands and would have got up, but in another moment she wa3 buried four deep under tho bodies of others who fell over the steps after her. She was dead when they got her out, more than half an hour after wards. The men sprang upon the rails at the ST. PAUL, THURSDAY MORNING, MAY 31, 1883. sides and waved the crowd back from both sides, but people continued to crowd on toward the steps. No police were in Bight. Every minute the excitement was worse. Men in the crowd lifted children above their heads to save them from the crush. People were still paying their pennies at both gates, and swarming on . At last the people at the New York end of the bridge understood what was hap pening, the gates were closed, and Iword was sent to Brooklyn to close the gates there. Messengers were sent to the police (sta tion on Oak street, but.before any outside help came the bridge police, assi sted by citizens, pressed two grooers' wagons into the ambulance service. They were ] LOADED WITH DEAD AND DYING) and wore driven off the bridge, followed by crowds of distracted men and women. As the wagons came to the outer street they were obliged to stop to allow a bril liantly uniformed band playing gay music to pass up Chatham street. dead bodies had been laid in the basement of Chambers street hospital at 0 o'clock. Two of the dead Jwere identified — Geo. Smith, 42 Watts street, and Ellen Riordon, 36 Montgomery street. Among the injured were ,T. E. Dale, 75 Henry street; Wilholmina Loew, Monroe street; Thomas Riordan, 3G Montgomery street; Mrs. Chas, Vogeler, 32 west 20th street; Minnio Smith, 258 Houston street; Ella Requa, 26 Horatio street; Frank Bar nett, 19 Mott street. Among the uncon scious are two unidentified men and women, a boy and a girl. was not until the dead wagons'came outj that the public knew of the catastrophe. The wagons were followed off tho birdge by women crying for their children and-men crying for their wives. Several women were half naked, aDd many had only rags. One woman had both her 6hoes torn off aud wa3 almost bareheaded. There were hundreds of them DISHEVELLED AND CRYING. Their faces were white and in many in stances covered with dust and dirt. Mrs Edward O. Colburn, 187 South Eighth street, Brooklyn, came out^ into Chatham street, leading a litttle boy with each hand. She had lost her husband in the throng and he had taken their youngest child with him. While she was talking with a reporter on Chatham street her eldest daughter of nineteen ran up to her crying: "Where is father?" The mother answered that she did not know. Mrs Colburn said: "It was an awful experience. I saw one woman fall backward from the steps. As soon as she fell sli3 was jumped upon by msn, who were forced after her. They XBAXPKD nEK TO DSATU. 1 was pushed against the railing and turned around nnd around. I\ly clothing was torn and I was exhausted, and when I last saw my husband li 3 was holding our youngest child up in the air and beiog carried toward., the edge of the slops by the crowd. I clung to the railing. At last some one from above grasped my wrists and hauled me out of the crush. A few moments later they got my two boys up. At that time the bodies lay three feet deep at the foot of tho steps. One man, who was white as a sheet, struggled out of the mass, with his dead child held above his head. He was screaming. I stood by tb.9 rail, looking for my husband and our other child. Ido not yet know whether they are safe." MB. n. A3EBCBOMBIE, of Skaneateles, said, I came to New York to buy goods for my store. After Boeing the parade yesterday I went on the bridge at 3:30 p.m. I stopped to buy a cent medal, or I should have been on the fir3t step when the crush occurred. After buy ing the medal I walked along. 1 was twenty -five yards from the steps and I walked toward them. I noticed the jam on the steps and stood watching the im mense throng. A man got on tlie iron work and beckoned to the crowd to go back. He was not a polioeman. j saw no policemen there. Heart] a scream and several other serepni3 followed. The crowd surged back r.nd I jumped over the fenco. Tha jnm centered on the steps. I went along the stone Bides and walked along and hnng on to the rail ing with one hand. Just as I got up on the north side of tho bridge the crowd swayed toward New York and threw a girl down on the right hand corner. She went over sidewise aud forward, and fell on her face. Then four men and a woman fell on her. I cried: "Everybody come over and get away, for God's sake." I have been used to handling small gangs of men. I yelled for them to get over the rail, and pulled a man over. I got him over and the women next to him, and after a hard struggle got them so that they stood along the iron works. Mean time the throng was wedged at the scene of the accident. The tide was from Brooklyn, as the New York entrance was closed to all but reporters and the wounded. It was not until a quarter of 6 that a squad of police were sent on the bridge and the crowd was thinned. The following is A BEVISED LI3T OF DEAD AND INJUBED obtained shortly before midnight from the hospitals and stations.

[Special Telegram to the Globe, j MiLWACiEE, May 30 — An inmate of the Soldiers' home, named Henry Mosley, was ruu over and instantly killed by the through express train on tha St. Paul road, at 11:15 o'clock this forenoon, near the railroad station, on the home grounds.
