(bridge carpenters,' of whom one
1 j:. :
m ijrouauiy uie, were eeriousiy in
jured this morning by jthe collapse
of .B bridge that is being erected, by
the Lafe Pence company ' acroes
Balch'e gulch near Thirty-flret and
J"liurman streets. ' ' , ( :)
' Bight men were at woiknponthe
euperstrqpture at the time. 7
Beatty, one of the number, was at
the edge of the bridge when it col
lapsed.' He clung to a huge girder
Etretcbed in mid-air and esoaped in-'
jury. He climbed from liia peril
ous position and alone began-the
Work' of rescuing his wounded com
rades from the wreckage. ; ; '
. The men who were caught', were
buried beneath, a great pile of gird
ers and heavy timbers. They fell
into the bed, pf '.'the creek 'which
flbw" beneath the bridge ; , ' '
j Other workmen who escaped in
jury quickly weut to the rescue) of
thfi men anrl oiAeA in drairolnp- them
jfrom the debris. , r The . scaffolding
on which the men were -workine at
the time pf the accident was 40 feet
high. , : ,(',:.
Prominent, among . the. rescuers
was Miss Maud Howell, who' lives
on Willamette Heights, near , the
the scene of tbe accident. One of
the uninjured carpenters rushed in
to her home in order to call assist
ance by telephone and in that way
she learned of the wreck.- . o
- Miss Maude Howell proved a
splendid heroine, for as soon as she
heard oi the accident, ehe grabbed
a bottle of brandy, all the bandages
and absorbitant cotton, : liniment
and other .1 medicines ' she thought
might alleviate suffering, dashed to
the brow of the. hill,, picked: her
way down through the treacherous
defiles of the ravine, and was first
person there to render emergency
relief. She really took' ebaree of
mattere, ordered the men , to, bring
water in cups .or anything they
could find: She bathed tbe gaping
wounds, placed cooling drafts of wa
ter and invigorating sips, of brandy
to the lips of the suffering unfortun
utes.1 Jewell, when be smiled tbe
brandy, was . still in a daze, but
murmured that he' had never touch
ed liquor and wouldn't begin now.
1 Miss Howell with deft ha'nd ' rip
ped up clethei int(rr. bandages for
head, rme and feet, and -6 00a had
swathed the wounds in ootton and
bound thami'sScnrely. ' She bad
started to' make a splint for Jewell's
arm,: which; was ' broken in three
places; wheri Dr. Thornton: arrived,
making the splint oat af a piece of
board.' Without thought of the
shocking injuries of . the men, the
sight of blood, the curious crowd,:
the pluoky girl worked valiently
until all that she could do had been
done. Thenf ; with words of oom-
fort to the sufferers, thoee-whowere
conecioue, i Bhe struggled 1 back up
the steeps to her h ome. I 1 ; ! 1
Tbe Lafe Pencef Company, after
completing a 75-foot flume trestle a
few hundred feet beyond ithe- one
which gave way, began erecting the
ill-fated one. " The main bents, . the
false work,' and the' dock j were in
place but an order ro raise the west
bent to a level with the east . one,
which is built on a high elevation,
it was neoessary to construct a '"po
ny" bent on top of the former.' The
pieces of the pony bent ; had been
put together In the canyon below,
end it was being hoisted by 1 block
and facKie tp tne top 01 !tne- main
bent of the west side. ' (
' Two men were hauling away on
the line and the six men were ready
to make tbe bent fast as soon ; as it
had been, jockeyed into place by the
block and fall. . ; ! - i
Tha bent, which is ' composed ol
timbers about 15 feet long, three
inches thick (and about I4 inches
wide waB almost' in 1 place; being
lees than' three . feet out of; plumb,
when something gave way.' . ,
Itiseupposed the bitch 'in the
sling around one end. of .the bent
flipped, and released the top of the
bent. : Ik went crashing down on
the deck of the trestle'on which the:
six men were at work. : The! weight
of the bent sprung the planks of the
deck, breaking one or :t wo of; them;
and the ' w' o'.e mass of . writhir g
timbers', ' 'wiib the men On : top,
plunged to the: rocky; bed of the
stream, 40 feet, below. : r r . i ..
Besides the injuries sustained
from the high fall on) the sharp
rocks i the men twere-tsanght
pinned in by the mass of wreckage
Their startled companions lay to
with vim. first digging the victims
out of the- debris., saving- two of
them from drowning in the shallow
water, stanching the flow of blood
as best they could, and making
their companions as comfortable
