Moat Kxclting Occurrence In ojiI
Wheeling In a Long Time.
Ono of tho saddest Occidents ever |n'
chronicled here occurred yesterday afternoon
about half past live o'clock. Tho gtn
nnptlm yacht Gertrude enpbized near tho uu
landing at tho foot of Fourteenth street ^
and all the passengers on her were (ij1
thrown into tho river. The accident was tin
caused by a lady's dress catching in the dii
pulley of the tiller rope, holding the rope
so that the tillerman could not coutrol ou
the rudder, and tho yacht struck a bar^e
ii iiiiarlnrlnir lilnu* ami .tin nn ol.nliflit
U<|UI???II?A ?"? ?? ?? U1( DVtHltjlll,
turning over tho boat bodily. Tii
All tlio occupants were thrown iuto
thu water, but most of them escaped at
oaco. or
The only person known to bo drowned Wi
is Edgar W. Wells, the well known to
architect. It is possible, however, that to
several others wero lost, as the wholo w
number known to have escaped is fourti'i'n.
"i
I Mr. William T,English, official scorer P(
of the base bull team, Air. William Mc- t0
LaughUn and Mr. I). R. lirookB wero
taken from the water unconscious, but [>'
were resting easy late last night. Those yj
missing aro not known by name if, "
which is almost impossible, any are
missing. All may have escaped, but got ?l
out of the water without being observed
and gone to their homes. Jj
DISTRESS OF PHI ENDS. jf
News of the casualty spread with incredible
rapidity, and iu a short time ol
the bank of tho river was densely lined Jj|
with people. Those whose friends were ^
at the ball game ou the Island. or who Jj
knew that friends wero in tho habit of BV
crossing in the yacht, were much alarm- a,
ed, and the extravagant versions of the *?
affair which were circulated added to the
distress of those whose friends had not
come home.
The first story was that eight or ten C1
persons were drowned. This soon nar- *<
rowed down to live, tho live being Mr. J
wuup, iur. McLaughlin, Mr. urooKs, Mr.
English and Mr. GeorgoGillin, acarpen- ^
ter workinsr for Klieves, Kraft & Co. All J11
of these but Mr. Wells llhally turned up. j*1
That Mr. Wells was drowned seems ?l
unfortunately beyond question. One of {*
the men who saved Mr. McLaughlin
say's that he saw two men sink about the
same time near the mouth of the creek, 0
and a little farther out in the river. He 8'
thinks he caunot be mistaken, but if w
there were two drowned no clue to the P
identity of the second mau could be
found last night. - ^

The Dctalli* oi tlio Accident Taltl by the ^
Itt'HCIICll. jj
It was about 5:u0 p. m. when the accident
occurred. The game of ball ou the u
Island, between the Wheeling and J!
Springfield nines, had just been finished,
and as usual there was a rush to the
naptha yacht furry landing on the Island
shore. g'
The two yachts, Gertrude and Hazel, r(
the former the property of Mr. I. G. fi:
Dillon and the latter of Capt. Aea Booth,
left the Island almoBtat the same time.
Both were well filled with people, but ?
neither overcrowded. So'far as can be j..
definitely ascertained, there were sixteen
passengers ou tho Gertrude. She
will comfortably seat eighteen or twenty. aj

her, in all sixteen persons. There were ?i
passengers and witnesses who insisted tl
that there wero at least nineteen persons, o!
and perhaps twenty, but if thero were
more than those named below, none of ]*
tho survivors could namo them, nor m
wero they heard of after the accident, tl
while tho fact that no person has been sc
reported missing conflrnjg the belief that hj
nobody else was aboard. gj
W. H. Saddler was in charge of the w
yacht, and George Engel was running cc

now it occurred. an
When tbo yacht neared tho eastern
shore it was necessary to steer her be- ye
tween the south end of the Cleveland, Tli
Lorain <k Wheeling Railway Company's wl
wharfboat and tbo bow of the sandboat ho
Fay S., moored just below with a flat- Tli
boat outside her. Tho boat worked all Mi
right until it was time to curve into tho Stu
rather narrow passageway to her land*- hai
ing. Then, for Borne reason, the rudder ovi
refused to work.1 Shi
Englo pulled tho tiller-ropo hard, but the
it was fast. It afterwards developed
that Mrs. Mendel's drcBs had cotton
against one of the pulleys through Of
which the ropo works, and being drawn eas
in, clogged the pulley and caught tho Syi
rope fast. nat
Sawyer, tho base ball player, yelled to wh
Eogel to shut ofl tho power, but tho anc
utter was too much occupied at thp ropp
iced, and tbe yacht craahcd with full
se against tlio largo barge lying
innt the Fay S. ller bow ran lip the
go's side, aud the boat turned comtely
over.

'adler, Kngel and Home of the passen- I
a who had prceence of mind enough I

:ht struck, immediately went to work |

o two ladies were gotten outupou the ,
turned keel of the Gertrude, and from '
it delicate place to tho barge aud ]
lore. Young Scheelo found ono of
s ladies clinging to him, but was soon 1
ieved and got out safe.
All the other passengers wero soon

uling but Mourn. Wells, Brooks,
iglish aud McLaughlin. They were
m to float oil'down the river, Binkiug
d rising ut intervals.
All the passengers of the other yacht,
i) Hazel, at once sprang out, except
inrles E. Van Keureu, Tho crew of
a Hazel ran her down tho riveraBhort
itance in the hope of rescuing uny of
o other boat'u passengers who might
11 bo in the water, but this was witht

SOMiTxAKKtMV ESCAPES.
to Awful Kxtturluiiou uf Sir. I'ucllah nuil
Others,
Mr. English went under tho bargo at
ice. He came up below, and near him
as Mr. Brooks. The latter atteraptod
hold Mr. English up, but was himself
o far gone. Joo Kay, a young man
lio-works at Meyers & Katclifl 'b hotng
house, waded out nearly up to his
;ck in the water, and extended a stick,
Mr. English, who had barely strength
lough to catch it. Uo was drawn safeadhore,
and became unconscious aa
j landed. He was carried up to the
otel Bohler, whero ho received every
teution, and Dr. Charles Frissell being
immoned, soon brought him urounu.
e remained in bed at the hotel until
jout 1) o'clock lust night, when he was
tken home in a carriage, still weak and
I, but out of danger.
Mr. Brooks was able to clamber out
; the water, and Mr. J. A. H. Parsons,
issing in his buggy, took him to his
orno. Many people who did not know
ir. Brooks or Mr. Wells, but recognized
le former as a contractor and builder,
lpposeiL him to ba the missing man,
id hence the persistent report that Mr.
Tells was safe.
CARRIED DOWN STREAM.
Mr. Brooks says ho saw another man
irried past in the swift current just aa
lr. English was saved. This may have
sen Mr. Wells, or possibly Mr. Mcaughlin,
who was carried down to the
louth of the creek, where parties on
sard tho houseboat Glass City rescuad
ira. He wa^ exhausted, and in another
linute must have gone down for the
,st lime.
A colored man who was at the mouth
f the creek is sure that he saw two men
;ruggling in the water after McLaughlin
as taken out, hut tho most probable exlanation
of tbis is that he saw Wells at
yo diflerent points.
Expressman Wiucber says ho waa on
io wharfboat, and saw Wells swept
own by the mad current At that time
e was paddling, and seemed able to
eep afloat. As his clothes became
eavier, however, he must sink.
There win a'story that a man had gone
nder the barge aud not come out, but
lis was either Mr. Gillin or McLaughu,
both of whom were saved,
tuk 1>k0wne1> man.
Tho death, under these horrible cirjmstanceB,
of Mr. Wells is peculiarly
id. He wub in the prime of life, had
:ached a proi;d posjtiqn in hjs profeson
of architecture, recently oompleted
handsome residence in the Fifth ward,
oe of the finest in tho city, and was
ist entering upoi) a career of usefulness
ad honor. Mrs. Wells, the bereaved I
ife, is an invalid.
Mr. Millard F. Wells, of the River-j
de glass work?, at Wellsburg, camej
d\vu on the Pau Handle train yesterly
afternoon to attenc} the J3ooth-Mod:aka
performance at tho Opera House
,Bt night. He was on tho wharf soon |
iter the sad accident occurred, and
lere learned with shocking abruptness
[ his brother's awful fate.
In another column the firm of Klieves,
Iraft & Co., qf whigh &Jr. \Yells was a
leraber, advertises a reward of 1100 for
le recovery of his body. He is de:ribed
as about 5 feet and 11 inches in
eight; weight 190 pounds; wore small
?Je whiskers aud mustache; hair black;
as dressed in q ljgljt sujt, gj-ay oyerjat
and white shirt; had on his person
small open-faced watch. He was a
jnial, popular man, widely known and
niversaUy respected. His untimely
!?aUi will cause sincere and general
>rrow.
STOIUES OP THE RESCUED.
Mr. Biooks says he was almost cxausted
when he came up near Eng3h.
When he started for shore, howler,
and felt the bottom under his
et, he wasencodraged, aud could have
ived at least one man who went past
Liu had ho had a plank. Ho Bhouted
i a man above to throw a board down
om a pile near, but his rcquat was not
nderstood. Had he secured a plank,
a said, ho would have beeu wllliug to
) back into the current and try to
iscue somebody else.
iur. .bngiiBii wan one of the moat
svorely used up. To an Intelligencer
porter who called shortly before he
aa taken home he told an impressive
ory. He said he was perfectty con:ious
when he came up, and cleareaded
enough to have gotten out enfo
ad it not been that he came up beneath
le barge. He tried to scratch his way
it alon^tho bottom of the barge, but
ink, and coming up, again struck the
irge. The fourth time this happened
3 gave up all hope, but a moment later
oqo again and saw tbo linht of day.
ike a Hash the dense, black mass of
jople along tho high bank impressed
self on hia sight; Then he started to
nk again. lie heard somebody shoutg,
"Here, catch this!'* but could not
.tch anything. Soon a stick was
ruBt into his hand, and mechanically'
3 clasped it. When he came to again
) was in bed in tho hotel.'
SOME STORIES EXPLAINED.
> Hoys in the Yncht? How tho Story
Stnrteil*
One of the last of the untrue reports
bo abandoned by those people who
ilieve in exaggerating such casualties
is that two small boys were in the
cht and were drowned. Parents
:ioso small boys were not at home
jre alarmed by this report, and when
was stated that with Mr. Wells', Mr.
lglish's and Mr. McLaughlin's hats,
len they were picked up in tho river,
ire two boys' caps, those cans were the
ject of everybody's quest.
A. 11 the passengers and the two men
nning tho yacht declared there were
boys in the boat, but this tfid not
isfy anybody, and the report grew
d spread.
rhe fact i3, two caps were found?one
)lack cap for a boy of probably four
aro, and the other a larger plaid one.
ey were found ono within the other,
?ieh led to the suspicion that aomeily
on the boat had bought the'caps, '
ia was confirmed after the accident,
a. Hornbrook, who waa taken to the
imm liouse when rescued, said she
i bought tho caps, aud had then gone
3r to CQll on Mr. I. G. Pillon'a family,
a returned on the Gertrude, and lost
i hats when the boat capsized. ^

Tho audience filled every Beat downataira
and comfortably crowded tho rest
of tho house. It was notablo for tho culture
and refinement of those present, the
unusual number of out-of-town auditors,
and the close, critical attention and discriminating
if not vociferous, applause I
which it bestowed.
The croking of thoso who eaid Mr.
Booth would not'make an honest effort
in u "ono?night" town was set at naught
by his finished and masterly rondition.
Madam Modjeska, although not in perfect
health, also gave a characterization
of Portia which was worthy inato to
, such a Shybck. Finer acting was nevor
seen anywhere; nothing like it was ever
enjoyed in Wheeling before.
Of tho company, it is enough to say
that every member was worthy to play
in such a cast, while the attention given
to staging, costuming and tho little de?
' tails which make or mar a perfect whole,
tnado tho performance all that the most
i critical could desire.
Manager Wester deserves the thanks
, of the community for giving local
theatre-goers the opportunity to see eo
memorable a dramatic performance, and
, it is to be hoped that the popular rek
ward which crowned his effort will encourage
him to repeat it in tho futuro,

[ In Part II of tho Circuit Court yoster'
dav the case of Chnrl?>o
of Stealing a horse from John Duncan,
was continued till the next term on account
of the alienee of a material witness.
The witness lives in Jackson
county, and a eupcena was sent to the
Sheriff there, as the law directs, but he
did not respect it enough to ever acknowledge
its receipt. His neglect of
duty may cost him something.
Michael aud Mary McLaughlin adopted
as their own child, with the sanction
of tho court, an infant child of Flora

child was named Michacl William McLaughlin.
In Part I in tho matter of certain U.

late Thomas Hughes, tho property was

gown with hluo trimmings would have
made any diminutive miss's eyes dunce
with delight, Mr. Graves set It up on a

an old-fashioned watch key, to a square
projection in tho hick, began to turn.
"Twinkle, Iwlnkle, little ilnr,
How I wondei wlmt you arc,

rrcited tho doll, with correct intonation
and induction, and in n line voice somewhat
liko tho artiticial tone of a very
small child on tho stace.
Over and over it said tho lines, and
though the voice whs rather shrill, it
was more like tho real human voice than
the average voice sounds through the
telephone. It is very probahlo that one
famll)ar with the^ voice reproduced by
the mechanism in tho pretty doll would
recoguize it if he heard it here.
The doll is one of Edison's talking
dolls. Inside it is a diminutivo phona*

tho public were put on exhibition
