The Bridge Disaster.
Portland, Nov. 2. The coronor'a
jury today resumed the investigation
of the Madison street bridge disaster.
The testimony, thus far taken has elic
ited nothing beyond what has already
been published. The verdict will not
be reached before tonight, If theu.
It is settled beyond a question that
Paul Odes and Charles A bee wero
among the drowned, making seven In
all. They were seen on the car before
it plunged Into the river. Nothing has
been heard of them since. The searob
fur their bodies continues.
The injuries to Miss Alice Thayer,
the young lady thrown from the car,
have developed seriously, and a fatal
termination is expected.
G.W.Hoover, who Is employed 'at
Hexter & May's and William Kenner,
both of whom live ut Oak Grove, were
passengers on the ill-fated car. Speak
iug of tbe disaster, Mr. Hoover Bald to
"The car is known as the 'Oat urave
oat.' and does not run any lurmer
south than that point, s which is lew)
than a mile above Mil waukle. The car
left Oak Grove this moraine Just five
minutes before 6 o'clock. The track
was frosty and very slippery, aud to
make time the motorman was com
pelled to run as fastas possible. I thluk
iver 20 passenger were ou the car by
the time we reached the East side. A
number got oil, and by the time wt
struck the east end of Madison Btreet
bridge there were ab ut 15 passengers
-n hnnrd. After Da8siifsf.on.tbe bridge,
the car kept up its rapid rate of speed;
it went just as fast as when corulujj
.tnwn tbe track from Mllwnukle. Of
course, there was a pretty heavy cloud
of fog hanging over the river, ann one
could not see far ahead of the rapidly
moving car. The first thing I noticed
ivKua red Unlit. Conductor rowers
was standing near the front end or tbe

AM.. WILD CONFUSION
"All was n scene of wild confusion
and panic for an instant, and every
passenger m idea rush to save his life.
Those on the rear platform jumped off,
and those in the oar scrambled out. u
all happened In an instant, and I, like
the rest, can scarcely remember what
transpired. Fortunately tnere were no
children on board the car, and only one
woman, Miss Alice Thayer, who is
About 20 years of age. Bbe was sitting

up when the conductor shouted "Jump

river. I remember seeing two persons
Hwlmmlog the moment after the car
sank from eight. Iu the fog and con
fusion I could not tell who they were.
I saw the steamer Elwood passing
through tbe draw just at tbe momont.
There was no attempt made to cheek
the speed of the steamer and she plowed
straight ahead and ran down the two
persons I saw struggling In the water.
I saw the bow of the steamer strike one
man (I think It was poor Charley Beck
mau,) on the head, whloh would have
been enough to kill him. I think tbe
actions of the, officers of tbe steamer
were very censurable iu not oheoklng
tbe speed of making some effort to res
cue those who were drowning."
COMPANY IS CENSURED.
Both Hoover and Ken ner very strong
ly condemn tbo railway company in
not providing sand buckets for the
"The attention of the company has
been called repeatedly to this import
ant matter," said Hoover. "All tho
cars on other lines carry quantities of
sand.In wetandfrosty weather tbo track
is so slippery that it Is very difficult
to run without sand. To overcome this
difficulty aud make time it is necessary
to run at a yery high and dngerous
rate of speed when the car Is once under
way. To this, cause I largely attribute
tbe fearful accident this morning. I
do not blames he conductor and motor
min as much as I do the company.
The car was running very fast oyer the
bridge, and when the motorman dis
covered the draw was opeu he was un
able to stop Iu time. He made almost
superhuman exertions to stop the car,
but the epeeJ. slippery track and waut
of sand rendered Ms frantlo eflofea of
The two gentlemen are of the opinion
that ouly three passengers were insldo
tbe car wheu it went over tho briuk,
but iu the great excitement they were
not very positive about the exact num
ber. THE ELWOOD'S DEFENSE.
It was for the Balem-Portland steam
er Elwood (Capt. 1) that the Mudl
s n street bridge druw whs opened yes
terday morning when the ill-fated car
woul to IU fule. In an Interview
witli Cup, hie, last night he siiid he
cou'd hear the car coming on tbe
bridge. "Could you see tbe car?" asked
the reporter. "We could see tbe light
on the car," said the captain, "and
from tbe noise she was making I knew
tho car was coming pretty fast. I fell
uneasy for the car when I heard them
eoroiug, knowing aa I did that tbe
draw was open. I was afraid they
couldn't stop, and I blowed the whistle
vigorously, thinking tho motorman
might not know tbe draw was opeu.
The car was coming fast and If we bad
been about another length ahead tbe
car would have fallen upon us. We
saw about six men In tbe water aud
threw out life preservers and planks.
We rescued one man on our foot plank.
None of those In tho wafer paid any
attention to lire preservers, They
seemod to be struck dumb."
"In an interview iu last night's Tel
egram G. W. Hoovar eaye the steamer
Elwood plowed straight ahead and ran
down the unfortunate passengers strug
gling In the water and says be thinks
tbo action of the o dicers f the steamer
nma verv ceUHurablo in not chtoklng
the speed or making norao efforts to
rescue those who were drowning."
"Mr. Hoover was evidently too bad
Iv excited to see things clearly. In
stead of plowing through and tunning
down tbe passengers, the iilwoou
stopped before reaching the draw tltjng
up at tbe pivot pier, and rendered
every possible assistance to the unfor
tuiiatts. We threw overboard life pre
servers, planks, aud staging aud suc
ceeded lu rescuing the ouly man who
fell lu the water and cscajed with his
life. While we were tied at the pier
we sent out a email boat and took
aboard the man who was floating on
tbe Elwood' foot plank.

A DECISIVE BATTLE.
Fought By tho British in Matabe!e
London, Nov. 2. A dectalvo battle
baa been fought in Matabole Laud.
Over 600 men were killed.
A special dispatch from Cape Town
says the troops uudor command of
Major Forbes and Jameson, adminis
trators of tho British South African
Chartered Company, occupied Hulu
wayo alter several fights in whloh the
Matabeles suffered heavily. Tho first
fighting occurred betweon Hope Foun
tain and Buluwayo, whoro the Mata
beles bad centered their force. They
wero nrmod principally with their na
tive weapons, ftfsegales aud knob-kor-ries,
although somo of them bad rifles,
which proved of llttlo service to thorn.
Tho natives fought bravely, and made
desperate attempts to got within strik
ing distance of tho British. Tho latter,
however, with superior arms aud their
gatltug guua were able without trouble
to keep them from getting within dan
gerously cIobi quarter. During one of
the fights Mujor Forbes1 columns made
au onslaught upon tbe Mutaboles and
dlatroyed half of a regiment, number
ing hundreds of natives.
Tho British loss In all tbi engage
ments wuh light. The natives were fin
ally forced to retreat, followed by tho
Chartered Companies' forcca. 'They
followed the road to Buluwayo, where
everything was In great confusion.
Runners from the scene of tbe fighting
have arrived with news of tho Muta
belea' defeat. No stand was made at
Buluwayo, and all tho people living at
tbo kraal Joined the fleeting army, tho
course of whlch'WBB northward along
tbe foot of the Matoppo hills. It Ib
thought that tbo Matabeles will make
for-tba Zambesi river, or tho compara
tively uninhabited country to tho west
ward of tho Umnlatl river, Tho imper
ial troops took no part in tbe fighting.
They followed Mayor Forbes and Dr.
Jameson to Buluwayo, urlvlng thoro
some time ufter tho advance columns
bad arrived. King Lobongula ac
companied his reglmont In, their
flight to the northward. Tbo Matabe
les' loss Is reported to exceed 8000 killed
and wounded. All Mashoualand re
ports confirm these stories and agree
that Matabrlo power Is utterly broken
One of tbe envoys killed by the llechu
analand police was a relation of a pow
erful king of one of the native states,
who has, consequently, withdrawn Into
tho interior aud is preparing to engage
