Triple Car Trolley Train
Goes Through Bridge
Bodies Imprisoned in Submerged Cars
Show Signs of Horrible Agony
Till Relieved by Death.
Atlantic City, N. J., Oct. 29.���By the
wrecking of u three-coach electric
train on the West Jersey & Seashore
railroad  yesterday  afternoon,  at  least
50 persons perished and tlu? list may
reach the appalling total of 75 when
all Is known. While crossing over a
drawbridge spanning the waterway
known as the "Thoroughfaire," which
separates Allantic Clly from ihe mainland, tbe train left the track and
plunged into the water. The passengers in the first two coaches, wi^h
few exceptions, were drowned. Up to
mldnlghl last night 25 bodies had been
recovered and it is believed that at
least 25, and possibly more, bodies are
still in the submerged coaches.
The disaster is the worst that has
happened since the rerrlole .meadow
wreck of July SO, 1896. The train,
made up of three heavy vestibule electric coaches, whicli left Camden, N. J.,
at 2 o'clock in the afternoon, carried
probably 88 passengers, as that number of tickets are held by the conductor. Ho is uncertain, however, just
how many passengers the train carried, and until all the bodies have
been taken out of the submerged
coaches it will not be pq-sslble to give
even an approximate estimate or the
As the sickening details of yesterday's terrible wreck on the electric
line of tho West Jersey & Seashore
rialrood developed during the night,
the disaster became more appalling.
The total number of persons whose
lives were snuffed out almost instantly is probably 66, with nearly a score
injured, several of whom it is thought
will die. Forty-eight bodies have already been brought to the surface.
There were .1 persons on the train, 15
passes and 76 fares. Twenty-five of
this number have been accounted for
which, with the bodies recovered,
brings the total to 73. This leaves 18
persons not accounted for and who are
stipiKtsod to have been drowned. It is
possible that some of these may never
be found, as it Is believed by some
that some of the bodies floated through
the broken windows out into the thoroughfare and were carried by the swift
current out Into the Atlantic.
At police headquarters this morning
it was stated that the effects found
on the bodies were not sufficient to
permit of Ihe identification of more
than six, mid that further identification will have to he made by personal
inspection. The police officers, worn
out by their vigil, wont to their homes
early in the day, saying they would
not return to headquarters until after
1 o'clock. In the meantime all of the
bodies are being embalmed. The early
morning . trains brought persons from
Philadelphia and other points who
were anxious to learn if a dear one
had been swept lo death by the awful
The wreck occurred at the drawbridge Iu the thoroughfare, which
Bpans a small waterway about one
mile OUtstda <>f Ibis city, just on the
eastern edge of the meadows, aud was
directly due to the failure of the
bridge to close properly after the fishing schooner SHubur had just passed
through. As she wns entering the
draw an electric train of three cars
came in sight, across the meadow In
the direction of I .easantvillo, nnd before tho bridge swung back Inlo
position the train, running at a high
speed, dashed upon the trestle. With
a lurch Uie forward car left the rails
and dashed Into the guard rail, the
other cars following. At the point
where the cars jumped the track ti.e
trestle is nearly 20 feet high. Hnd the
ears been open it Is doubtful If any
of the passengers would have escaped
because ihey must have been stunned
by the dropping trestle.
The first two cars were instantly
submerged, but the third car caught
on an abutment aud remained suspended. It was this aw from which nearly all of the injured escuped. The
news of Ihe nwful disaster was quickly telegraphed to this city and in less
than oi hour the work of rescue had

which rises ahout 10 feet, was running In and thc work of tho divers was
necessarily slow. It was not until
several hours later the divers were
able lo make any progress. Then the
awful  evidences of    the    disaster be
came more apparent. When the two
cars struck the bottom of the waterway they slood almost on end, and
first man to descend reported that
the victims were packed In the lower
ends of the submerged cars bo tightly
that it was difficult to move them.
Tin* bodies of men, women and children, many of Ihem badly cut and
bruised, bore evidences of the terrible
sufferings of the victims.
One by one the bodies were carried
to a walling train and laid side by side,
later to be borne to this city and placed In the old Empire theatre, which
was used as a teni|M��rary morgue.
Thousands of persons quickly gathered
at the scene of the disaster and a score
of boats soon surrounded the spot
where the cars disappeared, but they
were unable to render any assistance
and could only await the arrival of the
At the morgue the scenes were pa
thetic. Persons who had friends on
the train crowded about the entrance
and were with difficulty restrained
from forcing their way into the building. . One of the most heart-rending instances was furnished by Frederick Renckert, who lost his entire family, a wife and two children. Benckert
was not Informed In Philadelphia of
the accident until too late to catch a
train, and he hurried here In an automobile. When he saw the dead bodies of his wife and two little boys lying side by side on the floor, he collapsed and had to be carried from the
building. Renckert had Intended to
accompany his family yesterday, hut
was unable to get away.
Walter Scott, the dead motorman,
lost his life through his anxiety to
spend a part of the day with his wile
here. It was his custom to run only
as far as MUlville, but yesterday he
swapped runs with another motorman
and his terrible death was the result.
General Manager W. W. Atterbury,
of the Pennsylvania Railroad company,
which company owns the line on which
the accident occurred, is here, but has
declined to make any statement with
reference to the wreck. He Intimated
that a statement might be looked for
later fn the day.
R. Angeuroses. a member of the
Royal Artillery band, who Is reported
among the dead, is safe here. He did
not accompany the musicians yesterday, but loaned his coat (o a member
who was without a uniform. He was
drowned and Angeurose's cards were
found in  the  pockets of the coat.
At 11 o'clock today 51 bodies had
been recovered from the two cars of
tbe electric line of the West Jersey &
Seashore railway, which dashed Into
the Thoroughfare yesterday, and one
of the cars, thfc first to leave the rails
on the trestle, had been, brought to
the shore. Of the dead 42 bodies have
been Identified.
How many, if any. remain in the
second car Is not known, but with the
aid of three divers who were brought
here today from Philadelphia on a special train. It is thought that the see-
before noon. Tlie fact that some bodies were recovered outside of the III-
ond car will be completely surveyed
fated cars leads to the belief that possibly not all of those drowned may he
recovered. The current at the point
where the accident occurred is very
sirong, and it is probable that some
bodtas may have been carried away

the oc-an.
Calefy I. O. O. F. Will Erect Temple.
C 1 -ary. Alta., Oct. 29.���A committee of Odd Fellows has been looking
around this week for a diserahle building site for their proposed $60,000
Temple building. The Odd Fellows
own a 50-foot site on Stephen avenue
nearly opposite the postoffice, but they
want a corner site in a central location.
Second Performance    of   Westminster
Glee Club  Disturbed  by  Hooligans
in the Gallery.
The Westminster Abbey Glee club
closed a short but very successful engagement In Sherman's opera house
Saturday evening. Every sea', ln the
building was occupied and the verdict
of Friday evening's hearers was fully
Mine. Marie Hooteu was in distinctly better form than on ner first ap*
pearaaco. Her Scottish songs: "Ron-
ie Charlie's Oone Awa," "Whistle and
I'll Come tae Ye, My Love," and "I'm
Ower Young tae Marry Yet," delighted all her hearers.
Master Albert Hole was again the
first favorite. The applause or tho
audience earned au extra song from
hlm,  "Love  Was  Once a Little  Roy."
The other members of the company,
including Mr. Harry Ivlmey, fully sustained the standard of excellence
which has earned them golden opinions everywhere.
It Is to be regretted thai the director, Mr. Hramscombe, found it necessary lo remonstrate with boys In the
gallery who made a noise by eating
which disturbed the singers. Animals
whose feeding Is so noisy should certainly not lie admitted to a theatre.
Hut why Is eating tolerated In a theatre, aud why does the management of
Ihe local opera house permit the sale
of candy and pennuts during the performance? A theatre Is not a circus
ground. Decently bred people will not
eat there; others should not Ih* permitted. The manners of Nelson's Juvenile
st reet    population    are    unfortunate;
they needn't be directly encouraged by
Ihe management of the opera house.
The sale of souvenir programmes by
members of the company during the
performances ls rather an unhappy expedient.
Nelson Firm Will Establish Branch In
the Boundary.
Information has just been received
thai the Nelson Iron works, of Nelson,
contemplate starting a branch lu
either Greenwood or Anaconda. Some
time ago representatives of Uie firm
visited Greenwood and looked over tbe
ground, lt is understood they approached the R. C. Copper company
and the Dominion Copper company to
ascertain to what extent they could
look for support.
At the present time both the copper
companies are obliged to send their
repairs to Nelaon and other cities,
causing much Inconvenience and loss
of time. The mines, also, and all other industries using machinery, find It
necessary to send their work out of
the city. It is not known to what extent the Nelson Iron works have laid
their plans, but some steps have been
taken toward the selection of a suitable site and the plans for the building
are expected to arrive In a few days.

and Trout Lake.
(Lardeau Mining Review.)
W. A. Skinner returned Monday
night from the Steamboat group on
Lake creek. This creek Is noted for
its mammoth showings and the Steamboat is no exception.
When asked about the width of the
lead Mr. Skinner was very reticent,
stating that lt would hardly be believed If he told the exact width. We,
however, found out from a reliable
source that It Is full 75 feet across the
lead, and naked to the eye for the full
distance of three claims. While the
ore is not of a high grade, the values
run from 11 ounces in silver and 42
per cent, lead, to 46 ounces and 62
per cent.
It is a big concentrating -.proposition and with the present price of
metals would be a good profit earner.
The group consists of five claims
and is situated about four miles up the
creek from the Lardeau river. The
trail built hy the government this year
runs very close to ft. The property Is
owjied by Messrs. Skinner, Daney and
Foote, of Ferguson.
The ore from the Mammoth has all
been brought down. There Is ahout
1.80 sacks In all ready for shipment to
the smelter. This ore will average
fully $150 per ton. The supplies and
wood are all ln for the winter's work.

Skillful Robber* Make Off With Large
Haul of Booty.
St. Petersburg, Oct. 29.���The plunder from the amazing robbery committed in this city on Saturday, when a
number of highwaymen got away with
$193,090 frum a wagon which was conveying the cash from the customs department of the srtfte treasury, has
been stowed away, apparently beyond
danger of recapture. Today the police arrested 21 persons. Among the
prisoners is the driver of tbe cab in
which rode a woman whose part it
was to carry the leather bags containing the booty to safety. A man who
was with this woman in the cab has
been captured and identified. Three
customs officers who were in charge
of the vehicle conveying the cash at
the time of the robbery have been arrested. The investigations are beginning to point toward a conspiracy In
the customs service. The house porter
who was wounded 1n tho shooting has
since died.

21 persons arrested yestordnsy on suspicion of having been concerned In
Saturday's robbery, several have Ijpen
Identified as members of the band. No
truce has been found of the booty, the
exact amount of which ls $188,8211, or-
of the woman who carried the money
away. Plans for several similar robberies were found in the rooms occupied by ono of the persons arrested
anil several bomb laboratories were
discovered. The cashier, his two assistants and several other customs employees hnve been arrested on suspl

Lowering Okanagan Lake.
The matter of lowering Okanagan
lake is being taken up by the Kelowna
board of trade with a view to Impressing its necessity upon the government
through the district's representative.
This is a question of vital importance
to Kelowna. but scarcely more so
than to Penticton. Extensive tract.!
of land would be much enhanced in
value by Improved drainage, apart
from the fact that a large amount of
land would be thereby redeemed. With
a fall of l-l feet between Okanagan
lake and Dog lake, tho lowering of
the former is not a serious proposition. The Daily Canadian

Let m therefore  t-e careful woat we
The local ai��olo&ist for any-ojd-ihing
suffers conniption fits every fewa days
that must be amusing if they art' not
painful to the members of the liberal
party who are obliged to recognize it
as the Kootenay organ of that august
aggregation. On Sunday morning,
commenting on a report of .Premier
Mcli ride's speech af. Victoria which
cun ui nod the following: "The only
position for Hritish Columbia to assume is to insist on simple Justice and
If need arise to do so in order to obtain this, let tu cany onr claims to
the court of last resort," the local apologist for any-old-ihin�� say.-: "Doubt-
less a Victoria audience did cheer this
high Bounding phrase with wild enthusiasm, but we question very much it
anyone fn the audience knew what the
premier meant. And we are quite
sure that the premier, in usint tbeM
words, if he did use them, and we bave
the authority of the local McBride
a|��ologist that he did. simply used them
for the purpose of temporarily enthusing his auditors."
Its own "specially" telegraphed report of Mr. Mcllrlde's meeting at Victoria contains the following paragraph:
"In no public address ln this city has
Hon. Mr. McBride shown himself so
largo minded a public man and Liberals as well as party friends aro prompt
to give him his due and congratulate
him sincerely upon the evidences given of maturing judgment, toleration,
fairness and good temper."
That is only a small part of half a
column of fulsome adulation of the
premier which The Canadian would
have hesitated to publish in its own
columns for fear of being called a sye-
Yet wc sn told that the lo-
'... apologist for aay-old-thiug "quea-
Uooi whether anyone in the audience
knew what the premier meanL" Alas:
The** poor deluded Liberals in Victoria who "as w.-ll as his party friends,
are prepared tu give him his due, etc."
Certainly it is contrary lo all traditions of the Liberal party to give anyone not of themselves his due. A
serious mistake has been made by tbe
Liberals of Victoria who should have
had a Nelson mentor with them to instruct them as to what the premier
mean) so that they would not make
the idiotic blunder of giving blm
"his due." The pity is that the Liberal party seems to have so few people in its ranks who know what the
premier means, that is, tbat he means
business in his request for justice
for the overburdened and wronged
province of whose government he is
the bead. While we would naturally
'pared for any _Ort of insult
that might be hurled at the Conservatives <���;" Victoria who recognize in the
premier a man of the hour, we can sec*
no need for this same insult to Include thi ��� ���- of the fold of the
faithful who, for once, seem to have
above party feelings and gave
honor to whom honor was recognlzedly
"due." Th*- frenzy and madness which
cannot distinguish between friend
Inds us of a famous eveni
in thi earl] history of civilization,
an avenl In which tha soldiers of a
largi army, utterly demoralized and
defeat attacked each olher,
till the historian records that "not
knowing each other In the dark tho
BO ���_:��� :. struck madly at their own fel-
-  and slew them."
The concluding paragraph ol the editorial article in the local apologist for
any-old-thing is worthy of serious criticism because it Is one of those rare
specimens of journalism which writes
a paper down as either one thing or
tbe other. Headers will no doubt supply both adjectives and nouns. The
morning paper says:
"It fs attributing too great a depth
of stupidity to Premier McBride So
assume for one moment that be wished his audience to understand that
British Columbia hal not been treated
Justly at the conference, or that there
was any claim that could be taken to
Downing street. Premier McBride
knows, as we all know, .hat British
Columbia has no grievance that can be
taken to Downing street for arbitration.    He   knows  that    the    imperial
government would not Interfere in a
matter of this kind, and, wnat IS more,
has no right to Interfere. Premier
McBride Is only Trifling with the question when he even suggests BUCfa a
possibility. And it is this attitude of
the premier's that calls for the severest rebuke. ii<* is attempting to create an entirely false Impression and
in ho doing risks the possibility of
stirring up whollj unnecessary and inevitably  hurtful  factional  feeling."
In the above paragraph is evidenced
either crass stupidity or blind and Incapacitating rage, When the Liberal
apologist for, etc., says "IP* (tbe premier) knows that the Imperial govern'
un in would not Interfere tn a matter
ol this kind" it attempts deceit. A
glance at the facts will show this
clearly. Tho situation is that, Sir Wilfrid Laurier pleaded, as one ol ihe excuses for nol granting special consideration to the claims ol British Columbia, that such special .grants would be
in contravention of tbe terms ol the
B. N, A. Acl and would have to be re-
fern d to Downing street II Is true,
Sir Wilfrid did not promise to refer
the matter to Downing street and perhaps the local apologist, etc., knows
that Sir Wilfrid does not intend LO do
so, but supposing that be does so refer the matter���as he undoubtedly
should do���would not Hritish Columbia
then have a right to appear, lu the
person of lis premier, or some oilier
duly accredited agent, to argue tin** special conditions of this province und
place Downing street in possession 'of
the facts in the case so that such new
adjustment of federal relations might
be upon a lair and equitable basis?
We trow yes. And moreover, anyone
who kuows anything about the case
will trow likewise.
On the other hand, if Sir Wilfrid
refuses to refer the matter to the Imperial authorities, after having himself
appealed unto Caesar, would not the
premier have the very best of reasons
for carrying his case to the "court of
last resort"? Without a doubt, and if
such an appeal becomes necessary Mr.
.McBride will be supported by every
intelligent Liberal. Only the hidebound partizan woulu withhold his endorsement
The pretence thut Premier McBride has made mistakes or tactical
blunders ,as is so hotly urged by the
Liberal press, will not bear investigation ami iL is poltroon politics to try
to deceive Uie electors who for the
most pari look to the press for guidance and instruction on those complicated questions of international or imperial relations.
Hut then, it is becoming quite a common occurrence to read editorials In
the local organ of any-old-thing that
are contradicted, either before or after
the event, by news items which inadvertently creep inlo its columns.
Wanter���A censor or a mentor.
The Canadian judicial system ln its
application to elections is, in Ontario
and Saskatchewan furnishing food for
reflection to all those who are interested in the operation of election laws
and the conduct of elections themselves. In Ontario the Ilyman case is
engaging the attention of the Toronto
police courts and voter after voter Is
swearing that he took bribe money
while agent after agent is swearing
that he passed it. An attempt, in fact
several attempts, have been made to
move the place of trial from Toronto
to London with the object no doubt of
dulling the edge of the sword of justice by removing the scene of its ex-
ecu: ions to a field where the moral
sense of the community has been debauched by familiarity with flection
The object of the attorney general
of Ontario is avowedly the punishment of the bribers, with their principals and the consequent purification
of future elections. It matters not
tbat Hon. C. S. Hyman Is complacently
holding the seat which It is now admitted by everyone was corruptly obtained, Not until the court of last resort
decides against him personally will he
vacate it and in this determination he
has the support and example of other
ministers of the crown in the Laurier
cabinet. The keen sense of honor
which was once such a distinguishing
characteristic of Canadian politics is
seemingly a thing of the past.
' But while the Ontario courts are ferreting out the facts with respect to the
debauching of the OnUrlo electors
with the obvious determination io punish every purchaser of votes, either by
fine or imprisonment or perhaps by
both, the Saskatchewan full court has
given a decision In a case entirely different that has for tho present put all
possibility of punishment for fraud or
the unseating of dishonestly elected
members out of .the range of expectation. In the Sasktechewan case it has
been decided that stolen ballots are
not criminal ballots and that though
an elector may, by the self-confessed
knavery of an agont, be deprived of
his franchise, this, In the eyes of the
law is not a criminal or even a cfvll
We have thus the amazing spectacle
of a courl in one part of Canada taking proceedings agalnsl agents and
bribers for purchasing votes with a
view to adequate punishment, while in
another province of the Dominion we
have a court deciding ibai II Ib no
barm to steal ballots and vote them
The situation is anomalous In the
extreme. In tbe one case votes were
bought ainl paid lor according to ������
schedule prici  previously agreed upon
by   the  "operators'  or  "machine   rm ii
as  tbey  may  be fitly  called.
On the other band q straight steal,
iu which the ihb*ves were nol onl)
caught red handed bui afterward oon
teased the theft, is declared to be be
yond lhe pale of the law. Justice In
this latter case musi be noi onl) traditionally bul actually blind, ll there
is no law in Saskatchewan by which
a ballot thief can he convicted whose
fault is li? Siuvh the Cramers d! the
autonomy bill were shrewd enough to
di vise proper legislation, it is Incon
celvaible thai In the framing ol laws
for new provinces ihey could bave un
Intentionally overlooked such important legislation as would guarantee
the purity of elections. Vci this is
the spectacle with winch we are cun
fronted. Blither by accident or design
there is no statute upon the calendar
of criminal offences to prevenl the
stealing of seats by corrupt candidates
and their agents, It is a crime to buy
votes and honestly (?) pay for them
ai their market value, but to steal
them by whole constituencies Is nol
a crime or an offence.
If such an omission in legislative enactment had taken place under a Con
Bervatlve administration we are sure
that the earth would ring with declarations of corruption and venality
against the Conservative party hut, as
it is. the Laurier organs have nothing
to say upon the question. Comment
upon tho extraordinary situation seems
scarcely necessary. ���
