Ing , cart Tng [ three people down 10 death In
the Icy wnter8 or the river. Six others were
re8cued tom the IJrtlaly 8ubmerge(1 cnr.
H was the worst strot Cr accident that
ever occurred In Miwaukee and the news or
the disaster , sent 1 thr:1 : of horror throughout -
out the city.
From all accounts the accident seems to
have clearly been due to the carelessness of
t the motorman , John Kennedy , but ho Btuck
to his post In 1 vain en < leaver to stop the
car which he hall prmlt 1 to approach too
near the open draw nnd pahl the Penalty of
his carelesness with his life. The car
struck endwise on the Ice and was sub1erle(1
for about two.thlrds c its length , the fact
that I did not go to the bottom of the river ,
which 18 eighteen feet deco at that point ,
being due to the thickness of the Ice. Thil
circumstance alone , It Is bclond , made It
posslhl to rescue any of the passengers.

. TOO LATE TO STOP.
nussel avenue and 10on street car No.
' 1 15. southbound , was speeding along up Kin-
. nlcklnnllt avenue at about 8:30 : o'clock with
twelve pnssengers aboard. The Chicago &
Northwestern railroad crossing situated
about twothirds of 1 block north of Itln-
nlcklnnlck bridge was made on schedule
time. The usual stops wee observed and
\ at the conductor's signal to gu ahead Motor-
mon Kennedy applied his power and the ill-
fated car Mart cd onward to be suddenly
stopped by an awful casualty. Holng along
at a fair sped , not more than probably ten
or twelve feet from the bridge Conductor
Peterson , who Is saId to have been In the
Eervlce but a short time , rang the bell ' to
BtOp. Instantly the passengers became al\'a :
. to the fact that there was something out of
. J ' - ' 1 the ordinary wrong and they soon perceived
cause for alarm when , looking out , the open
brIdge was almost at hand and no brakes had
as yet been aPPlied. At the sound of the
. . bell the motorman grasped the brake crank
and twIsted It with might and main. Dut
; the wlleels slipped . There was no time to
reach for sand , and the helpless passengers
realized. to theIr horror that no mower on
Earth could prevent them 'lunging healong'
Into the yawning gulf of Icy waters.
I \Viid shrieks from the four women passengers -
gors IntermlnglM with the breathless gasps
, . . ' of the pale-faced men' . There was no time '
. , : : : -Z to plan , nor to say a word. The rear door
: , : was all the means of escape that was of-
; teredo The , men on the rear end. two or
" . three , Including the conductor , had already
Jumped. \VI\un I' . Savory was the first to
reach the door. He had occupied a front
seat nt the window and had SZCn the brIdge
open shortly after the railroad crossing had
been passel } . lie needed not the warning
bell of the conductor to notify hIm of the
danger. He had already been calculating.
lie was the first to bound forward and reach
) . the handle of the rear door. But he never
: , opened it. The Instant ho touched It the
forward end went down and he , together with
the terror-stricken passengers who were
crowding behind him , were thrown to the
, ' CHASIED TIHOUGl TIE ICE.
A heavy crash followed ns the Ice was
struck , and then the car gradually sank hal
way into the water. The fro was instantly
quenched and the passengers entirely sub-
IWge\l. \ Their efforts to get out will proba-
" bl never bo Imown. CertaIn I Is that the
two ladles who met their death lust have
been at the very bottom , and were Instanty
suffocated , as their bodies bear no signs of
bruises. One woman , probably Ella Waceh-
holz , clung desperately to Edward Hoffman
ns he contnued to raise himself out of the
water lie could lend no assistance , how
ever , as hIs strength was almost gonc. lInt
the strong aria of a rescuer was near at hand
and the helpless woman was safely borne
above the waterc all soon taken to a place
b pafety. AnnIe AlI was rescued In 'a simi-
lar way Their preservation Is alone due to
the fact that they chanced : to be farthest ,
_ away from the rear door In the frat attempt
to e cape. -
Miss Schinldtkunz's , body was ' first dls-
coven'd. Afterwards the body of MIss Ehi-
man and thu motorman were taken from the
car. Two alempta were made to lift the Cr ,
but the chains broke each tUne. Police used
graJJlng books on the wrecked car without
1 effect. H Is thought the l&t of dead will be 11111- :

and while tile mines were fghtng this fire
II explOsion occurred , which wrecked the

aul has fmoyed from the ruin eight terri-
bly injured mIners . I Is believed there are
several others In the mine
I Is believed fifty persons perished In the
disaster. The work of rescuIng the living and
recovering the bOI1es ! of the delt Is greatly
Impede owing to the fact that the explcllon
caused the workings to collapse , filling the
galleries with tons of rock and earth and
great quantities or timber that had been used ,
fcc liupports. The wounded are In n terrible
condition , their fesh being frightfully torn
They suffered the most excrucIating agony ,
and as they were remove(1 from the pit theIr
groans caused the hardest of the miners who
had hoard them to shudder. The mouth of
the pit Is surrounded by wailing women and
children , whose husbauds anti fathers are entombed -
tombed In the - mine . .

LONDON , Feb. 4.-The mysterious schooner
yacht Mohican from New York Is not lost
as reported In the United States unless she
has met with disaster since January 13 , for
on that date site nrrh'ell nt St. Michael's ,
The Mohican sailed from New York In the
latter part of November , with Dr. Connor
Herring , his bride of a few days , and a young
girl , Miss LetHia Thompson , on board , nc-
cording to general report. Miss Thompson
Is said to have run away from homo In
order to take this cruise.
Dr. Herring Is n son of the presIdent of the
Georgia Central railroad . He purchased the
Iohlcan from George E. Fitzgerald & Co. of
Boston The frst wife of Dr. Herring was
an Englsh lady , with whom he lived In
London for several years. In England the
most Intmate friend of Dr. HerrIng was
Montague Eder , who was the doctor's classmate -
mate at Oxford anti who Is saId to bo his
partner In the Mohican venture. When Dr. '
Herring returned to New York with his wife
: lr. Eder I returned with him. br. all Mrs.
HerrIng disagreed , Mrs. HerrIng returne(1 to
England and was closely followed by Mr.
I der. Dr. Herring began dIvorce lrOeeed-
Ings early In 1894 , but his wife anti Mr. Eler ,
who went back to America , succeeded In inducing -
ducIng the doctor to refrain from pushing
the ncton. ! Some time afterwards Mrs.
Herring began ' a suit against her husband
and In November last she was granted an
absolute divorce with the privilege of marrying -
Ing again This privilege was denied the
doctor . However , Dr. Herring und Miss
Iobel Harris of nooth Day Harbor , Me. , were
marrIed In Jersey City on November 17 last.
They returned to New York and reside
there willIe the Mohican was being prepared
for her voyage.
Wishing to secure a companion for Mrs.
Herring No.2 , the doctor advertised for one
and Letta Thompson applied for the place
pleading that she was ill-treated at home , and
she was engaged. But Mrs. Thompson , the
glrl'B mother refused to let the girl go , and ,
visiting the yacht ' one day while the family
was away , compelled Letta to go ashore.
Dut while walking up Vesey street the girl
ran away and made her eSCpe.
Mr. Eder , It appears , In the meantime had
married : rs. Herring No. 1 and had conic
back to England , after , as reported , draw-
lag up eo.partnershi papers wIth Dr. Her-
ring , which resulted In the purchase and
fitting out of the rohcm ! : for a long vo"age.
I was said that It was Intended to arm
tile MohIcan with two Iatlng guns , but
whether thIs was done or not Is unknown.
The destination of the Mohican was said fo
be Plymouth , Eng. , where Mr. Eder and
his wife . formerly Mrs Herring No.1 , were
to joIn the party. The first stoppIng place
was announced to be at Fayal In the Azores
Islands and the eventual destination of the
MohIcn was said to be the. South Pacific ,
where her two owners were (0' go Into pearl
flailing on a large scale.

WASHINGTON , Feb. 4.-Tho report from
Shanghai that a hunting party from the
Unite Stales shIp Concord had been over-
powered and carried off by the natives near
Chin' Kiang because they had accidentally !
shot 1 ChInaman , although net yet officially
confirmed , las given rise to grave concern
at he Navy and State departments. ChIn
Kiang lies al ( ito Yang.Tsa-Klang rIver , 16

, mouth of the Grand canal. The country Is
famous for Its 'game , ant whenever a naval
vessel Is In the harhor the officers avail
themselves of the opportunity to hunt. I
Is felt at hot State department , however ,
that the officers of the Concord showed very
bad judgment In Indulging In their desire for
sport while the country Is now dlsturb
and the natives are EO Jealous of the pres-
eCO of foreIgners. I Is not bleved , how-
ever , that the party Is In get danger I
the commander of the Concord shows pru-
den e In dealing with the case. As to the
best method of settng the mater and securIng -
curIng the release of the prisoners there Is
a difference of opinIon between the officials
of the State and the Navy departments. The
former believe that the bet course would - be
to Apply to the Tartar general In command
at Chin Kiang , who would compel the na-
tves to gIve up their prIsoners and thus
avoId any breach of international law. The
naval officers . on the other hand , endore
the acton of Captain Craig In senlng an
armed relief party from the Concord In pur-
suit , relYing upon the fear of the natives of
tile American naval force to secure the
speedy release or tile officers.

The following was Issued ! ) ' the executive
board of distrIct assembly 75 , KnIghts of
Labor tonight : " "To the Ctzens or Brooklyn -
lyn : Wo congratulate you , for this day you
saw demonstrated that the 'strlkers' and their
sympathIzers could peacefully assemble In
the face o ! all , the abuse h'ane upon them t
ly their lormer - employers , coo present to' '
their next representatives , the mayor and

petition setting forth your rights and their
rights and requetng respectful hearing and
consideration of theIr grievance. Will

again believe the misrepresentations of the
enemIes of the people when they represent us
lS things , murderers , lawbreakers anti rioters ,
or will you rely upon your own eye and experIence -
perIence when ) 'ou judge us ?
"Never was a more orderly crowd seen than
that tcdY which marched to the city hal to
personally demonstrate their respect for law
and order and their love for the gd opInion
of theIr fellow citizens. I Is true that the
people wanted to stand In front of the city
hal steps and In tile pubIc square while
their representatves were nshlerlng the pe-
tition. I Is also true they were prevented
from doing so by their servants , the uniformed -
formed polIce of the city of Brooklyn , who ,
with murderous clubs In hand and pistols In
pocket , or belt . kept them from their own
domain , the public square In front of the city
hail , and drove them hike E many cattle from
place to place , upon the sidewalks c Court
street Fulon etreet Myrto avenue , 'VI-
loughby street and other public thoroughfares
surrounding the city hlahl. Not even were they
allowed to hide themselves behln the ample
oxidized coat tails of henry Ward Deechel' ,
lie revered lhilosophier and friend of the
people , who ever spoke for freedom , justice
nn(1 humanity , all whoso voice , were It not
cold , would bo heard today In our cause as
powerful and eloquent as when he stoOl be-
fore an Englsh mcb and pleaded "for the
shackled slave of tIle south. But . aias , I
seems the memory of hIs- virtues . the In-
iluenco of his patriotism , the recollection of
his love for the common people , has 'passed
away In the city which hI male famous , and
In which nothing seems now to rule save the
Insolent and domlnee\lng corporations engaged
In robbIng and enslavIng the people.
"Does God will I so ? ills ways are won-
deriul amid past scrutiny and Is mills grInd
slowly , but they grInd fine . lid' must mean
vchl . and we , tile people , submit . The rule
of the common people means peace : H moans

agitation , Blnco that rule must be In peace
And , fellow citizens that rule wIll come , and
when the battles betweell the corporations
