A PRISON IN THE CAISSON ,
A Terrible Accident at the New Bridge Nar
rowly Averted Yesterday.
RESCUED FROM DEATH ,
How Tlio Cnlmson Sprung a Leak
llnllrontl NC\VH A Illcyclc
A Narrow Uscnpe.
Yesterday morning , sliortly after 0
o'clock a leak was sprung In the now cais
son now in thu course of erection for tlio
Union Pacific bridge , and before it could
bo caulked it had filled the shaft up to tlio
surface , thus cutting oil' the escape of
eight men who were at work on the bed
rock belor the bottom of the river.
Thu announcement of the accident
caused a thrill of horror among the hun
dreds of employes on the bridge , and im
mediately every precaution was taken
to divest it of the startling import which
it contained. News of It was Hashed to
the ollice of ( ! uo. A. JLederlc , the chief
engineer Lln charge of the work ,
with the result of bringing that gentle
man Immediately to the scene. Ills
assistant , Mr. Ralph Modjeska , ran with
haste to thu headquarters and Informed
the higher ofllecrs of the dreadful catas
trophe. Dcforo long , however , the news
spread with the rapidity of a whirlwind ,
and hundreds of people ran to the river
bank and thu bridge to gain all
u the Information that could bo
had. At the latter place
tlio watchman steadfastly refused to
allow any person to cross , and declined
to answer any and all questions pro
pounded to him concerning the accident.
A red flag was placed on the bridge over
the pier where the men were entombed ,
nnd this guided the fuw trains which the
preparations for relief .permitted to pass ,
run SCKNI :
The accident occurred in the middle or
third pier from the Iowa side. This ,
liku the others , is a mammoth granite
structure , and lias been in course of erec
tion for some months back. Its dimen
sions are si.xty feet in length by twenty-
five feet in width and it weighs thousands
of tons. Its surface is now about live
fodt above that of the river , and its base ,
for Home time back has rested on l > cd
rock seventy-three feet below the top of
Yesterday morning at 8 o'clock the
first day shift went down
through the shaft , into the
air lock and thence to the workingcham
bnr below , when they immediately com
menced the work of slushing and cleans
ing tno rock preparatory to tilling tlio
appartmciit with concrete which is always
done en the completion of a pier. They
worked unsuspectingly until ten
o'clock when they started to
como to the mil-face. Some
of tiicin re-entered the airlock and found
to their horror that a small stream of
water was trickling through a pipe , and
told the story that walcr'was in the shall
ubovo them. To open the door leading
from the lock to the shaft would have let
TONS OF Tin : runi )
in upon thorn , so , it is
presumed the loaders returned to the
chamber inimcdintoly below the lock.
There they remained. In this chamber
they were safe so long as they could
stand the pressure of the air
which was absolutely necessary ,
to keen the water from forcing
its way from thu river beneath the cais
son , and so long also its the water from
above could bit prevented from forcing
thu air chamber. But in view of the fact
that they nro not allowed to work
more than two hours under
this pressure , there was scarcely any
doubt that the'enforced detention for
double that period , would be productive
of sorlous results. At thu time of writing ,
tlio men had been imprisoned for three
hours over and above the regular
time , and there was then no prob
ability of their being early relieved.
' KPVbltTS AT IIEL1EK.
As soon as possible after the announce
ment I of the accident , Air. Lederlu
bent his energies to relieve the impris
oned men. Enfriuo 813 was run to the
Dior and immediately set to work to ex
haust the water from the shaft ,
but alter working tor an hour
it was found that she was
inadequate to thu work , and was
withdrawn , the distance of tlio water
rendering it impossible to work with
effect. Darrels were tliun substituted
and in this slow and tedious manner ,
the attempt to allbrd relief
was carried , on with indifferent
success. At the time mentioned there
wns no possibility of ascertaining when
the shaft would bo exhausted , especially
because the water was running in about
us rapidly us thu barrels could draw
Tin : CAIJSI : .
In conversation with ono of the engi
neer force , the accident , as already men
tioned , was iiseribcd to a leak , and
thu opinion prevailed tlurt , it was located
near the air Jock , the tissuru
having been caused in thu concrete
by either indlll'orout material or work
manship. It WIIH so far down , that for
BOIIIU time at least , it was thought it
would bo beyond the reach of any at-
tumptto repair it.mi

The banks on uilhur side of the river
wore thronged with people , the comminy
taking thu precaution to allow no person
not engaged in the work to get nearer
An accident similar to the above ( oak
place about lifteon years ago when the
magnificent bridge at St. Louis was In
was In course ol erection. At that tlmo ,
however , the sciuntillo world know less
nbout the budding of caissons tliaivit
does at tlio present time , and as a consequence
quence , that accident was attended with
considerable loss of life ,
mi : iti > ri'n.
The engine already mentioned suc
ceeded in ritdticin" tlio watur until the
column In thu.halt was about twenty-
live fuel in height. It was unable to do
any more , and the barrel process failed
to oxliaiiit the water as fu : > t as it flowed
in through the leak. To equip an engine
with power nocosMiry to empty thu shaft
would renuiro thu labor of hours , and
that would surety result in thu death of
the men below , Finallv , the expedient
was suggested of allowing the water to
csiapu through thu air-lock to thu cham
ber below. It wns no sooner suggested
than two men volunteered to undertake
the feat. This requiuul u diving through
the tun feet of water which lay at thu bottom
tom of Iho shaft and filled the first apart
ment of tlio air look. This was done
with considerable duringund skill hyena
of thu hands , an intrepid and brainy lad
nallied Mitch Ambrnso. He was followed
by another , Iko Itroiitun. Auibrqso
descended through the chilling waters
which at times enveloped him , darted
iuto the lir t uparliiK'ut of thu lock uud
dragged Dronton after him. Doth fliif
fcred from thu cold , fiandnaily succeeded
in closing tlio apartment door , though
the chamber was full of water.
They then opened lha equalizing valve ,
which allowed the compressed air from
below to enter the anartmcnt in which
they stood until the iircs.sure on either
side of thu door was the same. The
weight of the water in the lirH apart
ment then caused the door leading to the
compartment , where the men were work
ing , to swing easily upon its hinges , and
thus descend to the bed-rock. In this
way about ono-lonth of the watcrin the
shaft was drawn ofT. The last mentioned
door was then closed nnd the process
just mentioned was reversed , and
another tenth was drawn away. This
was continued until the shaft was
pructicallv exhausted. The men wcro
thus enabled to come out of their subter
ranean prison. Nearly all of them stood
their enforced detention in an heroic
manner , but two of them. Gus Nelson and
John Uownlun , Wove badly all'ected. One
of the arms of each a s paraly/.ed , while
other parts of the body wcro racked with

"but when I found that I couldn't , I con

that the water mnft have gotten into the
shaft , or that something had fallen

knew that the men up above uould
do their best to help us , so 1 kept those ot
the gang below at work. Yes , of course
they noticed that they were longer than
usual down below , but thought that the
I'elioving shift were delayed and did not
make a fuss about it , because , sometimes
when they are nt work only an hour they
think they have been th'-ro ' twice tl'ut

The Woman llntcr-
John T. Raymond's now play , "Tho
Woman Hntor , " which will bu presented
at Doyd's opera house to night ,
for the first time in Omaha , is one of the
greatest successes of the great comedian's
life The Chicaho New says : "In the
delineation of a nervous , middle aged ,
blundering good nuturcd man , Air. John
T. Raymond has no equal on the stage ,
and when ho undertakes a part contain
ing these characteristics he makes a suc
cess. Mr. Lloyd , who wrote "For Con
gress , " has supplied him with a charac
ter after his own heart in the play "Tho
Woman Hater. " It is in four acts , and
in construction resembles in no small de
gree tlio current style of German comedy.
It is full of very ludicrous situations ,
which Mr. Raymond and his company
make the most of. Mr. Raymond has a
play which will servo him 'and iiis audi
ence for many a day to come , iiis pecu
liar grotesque humor and Iiis wonderful
facial expression find full play in the
unique and terrible situations of this
"The Woman Hater" will bo repeated
at the matinee Saturday , and Saturday
night "Tho Magistrate" will be played.

THE RAILiItOAl ) GUIST.
TliC Onlaha Northern itoad Notes and
DAnnother meeting of the monied men
of Omaha was held last evening at
the PaNton , in response to an in
vitation or call issued by several wealthy
gentlemen. The ccnrfeoncco was
strictly "on the buict , " and may re
sult in big things. A gentlenianQwcll
posted on all'airs said yesterday : "Tlia
road is going to bo built yet ; something is
going to como of that meeting to-night. "
Freight Commissioner Griliiths is not
feeling despondent over the prospects of
the Omaha & Northern , though he would
like to have things pushed more rapidly
than at present. Speaking of the DEE'S
interview with him yesterday , he said :
"You misquoted mo in making mo say
that President Hughitt of the North
western was a sharper. I think ho is an
accomplished gentleman and a good
railroad ollicial. Wo would do exactly
as lie is doing wore wo in his place. At
the same time I insist upon it that he is
deluding thoOmuhu people. "
THE NEW' nmi.niNG.
Yesterday mqrningThos.MJOrr , of the
Union Pacific signed the requisition for
material to be used in the construction of
the Mansard roof for the headquarters
building Work will bo commenced at
once ; and will probably bo completed
within two months. This will make the
headquarters building live stories in
height , spacious , airy and well venti
lated. It will be one of the handsomest
structures of this kind in tlio county.
MOItH KltEHillT CAHS.
The wonderful increase in the freight
business of Iho Union Pacific lias caused a
demand for moro freight cars. A con
tract for 700 cars , to bo completed
within tlio next few weeks , is
now being executed. Contracts for
500 more are to bo let next week This
will increase the number by 1,200 cars ,
and it is thought that the pressure will
bo temporarily relieved. A railroad elli
cial in speaking of the matter yesterday
said that all the other Iowa lines wore
similarly distressed for lack of freight

Mr. Dullard , the fathor.stnles that young
Rousing was to blame for the trouble

He ( Htillnnl ) was lying siek at the time ,
from injuries received from a police
man's club. Young Housing was making
considerable disturbance about the house
nt the. time and was ordcied away by
Dullard. lie refused to go

his son John , which treatment very natur
ally was resented. Hocsing kept this up
