we, the uniierxiiruw. a lury of in
quest eni8irielled to investigate the
cause of the dwitb of Ellen Hite on the
31st thy of May, after bearing the testi
mony, do find that hllen Hite came to
twr death from drowning ,aivl the drown
ing was caused by the breaking of the
South Fork dam. We further find from
the testimony aud wiut we saw on the
ground tlwt tliere was not a sullicient
outlet for waste water, nor was the dam
constructed sufficiently strong uor of
proper material to withstand the over
flow, und here we find the owners of
said darn were culpable in not making it
o.h safe as siuhihI luive iieen uone,
esjiec lally in view of the fact that a pop
ulation of many thousands were in the
valley Mow. We hold that the owners
are ryMK.nsihle for the fearful loss of
life ami prorly resulting from the
breaking of the dam.
