Crushed to Death.
A frightful accident on the Coun
cil Hlulfs and Omaha motor oc
curred yesterday on the bridge,
whereby Nr. ami Mrs. Charles Cole
were killed and a number of others
seriously injured. The following 9
told by a witness of the accident:
"On account of the heavy travel
the train was a little behind time as
it cHmbrd the grade at the west
.end of the big bridge, and just as
soon as the level was reached the
motoriiian, W. K. Iloyt. turned on
the full current to increase the
speed and make up the lost time on
a level track. When within seventy-
five or 101) feet of the first truss on
the channel span of the bridge, the
trailer in timed the track and
bumped along on the block pave
ment. Kvidently the train crew
was not aware of this fact, for the
speed was not diminished. Just ;
the span was reached the rear car
rave a lurch and struck the heavy
trnxx m the souih side of the
"Mr. and Mrs. Cole, who occupied
front seats on 'he right hand side
of the tra-'ler, were thrown out and
against the iron ia-l:ng which
rds the roo.nach. The force of
the shock t.T crashing against the
iron pillar was so great that the
bodies, whe'i thev struck the rail
ing, bounded back ami feU beneath
the front end of the car anddtrectly
::cross the track.
"The couplings broke and the
front end of the trailer remained
slightly elevated and loaning
airainst the truss.
"After the shock every passenger
jumped to the ground and gathered
urouiid the two bleeding bodies.
Some one ran to the toll gate v.t the
west end and telephoned to the cit
jail and to the coroner."
and Water Destroy
TlTUSVlLLE, Pa., June 5. The city
of Titusville has been visited during
the past twenty-four hours by one
of the most disastrous fires and
Hoods in all the history of the region.
Oil creek has overflowed its banks
from the west and above the water
works to the city line below, and for
hours assumed the proport-ons of
aresistless Hood, reaching nearly up
t the line of Spring street. The city
is without fuel, street car service or
electric lights, the watrr works and
g.is works are surrounded by water
Scopes of cheap dwtlling houses
i: the lower p.n t of the city." on Me
chanic street and vicinity, have been
destroyed and scores of lives have
been lost, some being burned, but
the majority perishing by drowning.
The scene presented by the rushing
waters surging thiough the lower
part of city, as witnessed by thous
ands of citizens, was one of u'.ter
desolation. When morning broke
hundreds of anxious people looked
out of the windows or stood on the
roofs of houses, waiting for a help
ing hand and trembling tor their
tate. Strong men by means of boats
and ropes succeeded in saving
those who had a secure position mi
til the waters began to recede.
J. C. Petersen, C. II. Petersen and
1,. G. Larson, with their families,
and Mr. Knrnes took their dinners
with them yesterday and went upto
the "point" just above the mouth of
the Platte river, where they had a
good time all by themselves. They
went up on a Hat-boat, using a sail
and the wind for motive power,
returning in the evening by the
current of the Hig Muddy.

Dodd Opera Company.
Penquette's beautiful opera, "The
Chimes of Norinandy," was pre
sented to a large audience at the
Farnam Street theater last night by
the Dodd Opera company. In
many respects the rendition was
much better than that of "The
Mascott," which opened the engage
ment. The chorus sung in better
unison, and there was more snap in
the individual work. Mr. Chamber
lain as the miser, Gosford, won a
curtain call hy his excellent work
in the chateau scene. The part of
Serpolette is much more su'ted to
Miss Leslie than that of Bettina.
The score is more suited to her
voice, and her rendition of the part
last night made her more of a
favorite than ever. She is always
vivacious, always working to make
the act move along, and is well sua
taining her reputat ion as a pams-
tnViiur. earnest actress. Miss St.
Clair as Geriualne also scored a tri
umph last night by her exce'lent
singing. Mr. Charles is hardly
equal to the part of Henri, but his
endeavors to please were so ap
parent that the audience readil'
overlooked any m'aor defects in his
singing. Mr. Young as the Pailiff
and Mr. Hayes as the Notary did
good work. Altogether the per
formance was a most pleasing one.

The local ball cranks who mean
dered out to the ball park yester
day were witnesses of the most list
less games of the season. The visi
tors were unable to find the ball,
.-owl their field work was very raw.
The work of the locals was the ex

ting were excellent. Reeves pitched
the game of his life, the visitors
being unable to find him until the
ninth inning. Baker made his de
but with the home team and played
first in great shape. Pond also
played his first game yesterday at
second. Kennedy at short was in
vincible and his stick work was
something to behold.
Kimtnel started in t pitch for
Fremont but was pounded so freely
that Purcell was substituted in the
third inning. Graver's catching and
Marsh's batting were the only fea
tures that relieved the monotony of
the Freaks' playing. The score:

The ball game between the locals
and the Grand Island team Satur
day afternoon was the real article
of first-class ball. The home team
played with only two errors, and
one of them was an excusable one.
But for Yapp's wildness Platts
mouth would have won. The whole
team played with lots of ginger.
The features of the game were the
fielding of Green and the stick
work of Maupin, Kennedy and J.
