Fifty People Plunged Down Inte
a Cellar at Columbus.
Thore Was a Display of Fire-Works
in Ohie's Capital.
A rrirtlrtti "of a Sidewalk fllven Way and
Soen the Air I Kent With Piercing
Crip nnil (ireutis Unfnrtu
Hilten llndly Crushed.
Cei.umiius, 0., Sept. 10. Fully 30,000
people, citizens and visitors, gathered
in the stute-house yanl, Thursday
night, te witness the display of fire fire
werlts piven by the beard of trade en
the cast front of the capltel.
When the exhibition was ever a gen
eral rush was made for High street te
take the curs far various parts of the
city. That thoroughfare between
Bread and State streets was seen liter
ally packed with people, surging te and
fro ns the crowd was augmented from
cither side. In the midst of this natural
excitement the crash was heard next te
tlie Nell heuRc. The immediate cause
of the accident was singular as it was
Jnn.s Leach, a crippled boy whose
home w in Plcasantvllle, O., and who
makes a living by entertaining street
crowds by whistling and imitating
birds and fowls, thinking te catch a
few nickels from crowds as they left
the fire works, took up a position in
front of Smythe's book store, in the
Nell block and just south of the Nell
house entrance.
He settled himself en the glass grat
ing near the building, and as seen as
he began his performance the crowd
was attructcd tewurd him. He was im
mediately surrounded by a multitude
of men, women and children. In an in
stant there was n creaking, and then nn
awful crush. The sidewalk ever Iho
extended cellar had given way, and half
a hundred souls wcre dropped eight feet
below', 'A fearful scream went up from a
thousand threats as of ene man, fol
lowed by the groans and screams of
the peer victims. A .black hole twenty
feet long and six feet wide, lllled with
writhing beings, was here, where a mo
ment bofei-o joy and pleasure reigned.
The most vivid imagination can net ex
aggerate the horrors of the scene. The
crowd en the verge of the pit surged
baek, while these in the rear pushed
forward, and for a moment it
seemed that a huge mass of hu
manity was te be piled ene
upon unether until the hole was filled.
Ofllccra in the vicinity made their way
te the scene with dlfllculty. The patrol
wagon was summoned, but it was sev
eral moments before a rope could be
stretched te kcep the crowd from
tumbling in. Then the work of rescue
began. Dozens of willing hands hur
ried through the store, procured lights
and reached the victims from within.
One after the ether the injured wcre
pulled out and carried back Inte the
apartments under the store.
These who wcre last te go down es
caped with slight bruises, but the un
fortunates underneath were cut,crushed
and battered up, many having broken
arms and legs, with ugly cuts from
which bleed flowed profusely. In the
awful heap wcre old and young,
children and women nnd men. Mnny
of the children were but slightly hurt,
and as seen as light came scampered
back Inte the store and tip the stairs
like se many frightened rats.
There were many victims, however,
who could net move, pinned te the
ground and against the wall by huge
pieces of grating. The most seriously
injured was James Leech, the cripple.
His deformed and shriveled legs, almost
useless at best, were both broken, ene
of them in four places, and both arms
badly fractured in four places. Ills face
and head were cut in a dozen places,
and there were ugly bruises all ever his
body. The peer fellow's injuries are
considered fatal. Twe or three ethers
will probably dle from their Injuries.

Vnlunlile hire.
Captain James Ilcflln, the head of the
police force In this city, died Inst night
shortly after 1 o'clock at his home en the
comer of Market and Fourth streets.
Ills death was sudden and apparently
without mental or physical suffering.
He had spent the clay in Cincinnati yes
tcitlay where lie had gene te confer with
the Health authorities of that city in
regard te devising menus for the mutual
protection of the two cities against the
cholera. Thus his last day was spent
as had been" the greater portion of his
matured life, looking te the welfare of
the city and the people whom he loved.
He aril veil home en the 8 o'clock train,
spent the test of the evening at the meet
ing of the City Council and at the thea
ter, nnd In conversation with friends and
physicians upon the one subject that was
uppermost in his thoughts that of pre
paration for the evil which threatens the
whole land.
He was rcnlly the chief factor in the
piecniitienary measures te he nuclei taken
and he fully realized the responsibility.
Te day would have found him at the
front with nil his untiring nnd impulsive
He anived at his home about midnight
and immediately letlred. There was noth
ing in Ills leek te cause alarm, hut in prepar
ing for bed he seemed te he almost worn
out and his wife inose te assist hlin. HIb
breathing was unnatural, but this was
attributed te his exhausted condition
caused by the unusual cxeiliens of the
After letiring he seemed te fall asleep
almost immediately. His heavy breath
ng caused his wife te he uneasy nnd It
Anally became se labored that she
attempted te arouse him' This she was
unable te de, and becoming thoroughly
alarmed she called her eldest seu and he
hastily ran for Dr. Owens, a short dis
tance nway. Hy the time Dr. Owens
in rived at the house the gallant Captain
was dead.
His death was caused by heait tumble,
from which he has been a sitlTcicr for
many years. The excitement and worry
of the day Just passed had probably an
injurious elTcct.
In the death of Captain Ilellin Mays
ville sulTcred an irreparable less. This Is
said with no effort te exaggerate, nor in
anticipation of the incapacity of any one
who limy succeed him in an elllcial ca
pacity. Fer the elllcc which he has se long and
solieuniahly filled he bail an especial fit

and bringing the cilmlnals te Justice he
was eminently .successful. Ills acquaint

In the Ohie Valley was mere fenred or
dreaded by the worst elements of man
kind. While it was as a public elllcer that he
was best and most favorably known he
wns none the lessnppreclnted ns a private
citizen and a friend. Ocncinus and kind
hearted, nnd of a warm, Impulsive nature,
he was ever ready te de n kind net for
any one who would ask the favor. In his
long nnd eventful public, career, he, of
course, became involved in strife and dis
agreements, and like nil ether mortals he
may hnve made mistakes, but in this hour
of death nil friends nnd enemius will, in
ene voice, pay tribute te Ills worth.
James ilellin was born in tills city en
July 4th, 1845, nnd wns therefeiu just n
little ever 17 ycnis of nge. All of his
boyhood wns spent in ids native city.
On the 2d day of February, 1801, he en
listed ns n piivate in Company H.,
Eleventh Kentucky Cnvnlry. On Mnreh
12th of the same year he wns promoted
te he a Sergeant. In June 1605 he wits
trnnsferred te Cempnny K., of the same
regiment. He was distinguished through
nut his whole soivice for his gallantry
nnd heroism. He was a participant in
mnny warm engagements with the enemy
nnd was conspicuous for the bravery
which in all his life wns ene of his most
prominent virtues.
In 1872 he wns elected City Murslinl of
Mnysville. With the exception of four
years, three of which he wns n Deputy
United Stntes Mnrshnt, and the ether en
the polices feicc, hu has held this elllcc.
Thus for sixteen years he lias had prnctl
cnl control of police affairs iu lids city.
In nil that time lie was never known te
waver in ills duty. His imme will always
be held in the city ler which he has done
se much In revciencc mid esteem.
Such is a hiief sketch of his life, be
tween every line of which could he writ
ten n paragraph te his cicdlt.
The funeral will tnke plnce Sunday

This extra nnd gratuitous service en
Captain Phlster's part may disarrange
his ncros8-the-rlvcr trips somewhnt; but
we belleve the people of Abordcen, with
the geed of the citizens en both sides of
the river at heart, will second his efforts

unether plague ship arrived in pert
with Its story of disease and death en
the voyage.
Eleven mero victims add te the long
list of these who have died of cholera
between Hamburg and New Yerk.
This is the story of the steamship
Bohemia, which reached New Yerk
Thursday night and anchored In the
lower quarantine.
Her coming has been dreaded as much
as the coming of her sister ship and
hlstcr death house, the Scandia. She
left Hamburg at the time when the pest
was at Its worst, and her 081 steerage
passengers, gathered from the Infected
regions of Germany and Russia, were
confidently expected te bring the chol
era with them, and these expectations
wcre realized.
"We hnve had eleven deaths en
beard," said the captain. "They were
nil of little children. There Is no sick
ness en beard at present The last
death was flve days age. Nobody has
been ill en beard since then."
"Hew long after you left pert did the
first death occur ?"
"About the fourth day. The chil
dren were very young. The eldest was
between four and five years. They
were all in the steerage. Ne adult pas
sengers have died or been sick."
And thus another chapter is added, te
the sorrowful tale from down the Hay,
