The work of rescuing the bodies of the Victims has gone on steadily and so far 15 have been found, With four persons still re ported missing. The identified dead are!

First reports from the scene of the disaster seemed to place the blame on the conductor. They were that the ill- fated motor car, containing between 20 and 80 people, approached the draw just as a vessel was Hearing it, and the bridge attendants had closed the big iron gates and were preparing to swing the draw. As is the rule, the car stopped and the conductor went for ward to release the switch in case the way waa clear. He must have been blinded by the electric lights, for an eye witness declares that although the gates were closed and the draw was already in motion, the conductor '-.raised the switch handle. The rnotorman applied the current and the car shot 'forward and struck the gates with a crash. Uhere was only a moment's pause and then the heavy car ground its •svay through the wreckage and Plunged Over the Brink into the black abyss, amid the screams and frantic struggles of the passengers, who at the first intimation of danger rushed to the rear door. The car struck the water with a great splash and then there was silence. Soon men began to rush shouting about, and police patrol wagons and ambulances wore soon fly ing to the spot in response to telephone calls. In an incredibly short space of time the work'of rescue had begun. As the car wen-t over the brink of the abyss the niotorrnan jumped from the vesti- buled front. All the other occupants of the car, with tho exception of the f ev? who liad managed to jump as it toppled over, went down to certain death. Tho car disappeared from sight as soon as it struck the water and all on board were drowned. Augjast Rogers, the motormau, who has been held 'as a witness, has been charged with manslaughter. This action- was taken by Chief of Police Hoehii after he had investigated the accident. _ THE TIME OF STRIKES PAST. Men, Says Del)*, Must Strike at tho Ballot Box. MILWAUKEE, Nov. 1C.—Mr. Victor L. Berger, editor of The Daily Vorwaerts, went to Woodstock to interview the imprisoned labor leader, Eugene V. Debs. Debs said in substance: The time of strikes is past. Laboring men must strike at the ballot box, A .laboring man who votes for any of the old parties is a slave who is voting the ticket of his master, and he is forging his own,chain, I am for silver, but tho coinage of silver is no real issue, because it would change nothing in this damnable industrial system that makes slaves of the great majority of the people, Only the complete overthrow of the present wage slavery and the establishment of 'the co-operative ' common^wealth will afford a thorough and permanent help.
