Frenzied Struggle ia tho AirCliamber lu to Who Should First Fly the Graphic Ac count of tho XMaaster by One of the Three Recovered The Record of Mishaps LOUISVILLE Jan 10 Sixteen men work ing in a caisson used in the excavation of a fonndation for a pier of the new bridge ucross the Ohio river between this city Sind Joffersonville wero caught by a sudden burst of water caused it is thought by a too rapid excavation and are believed to have been drowned Engines and workmen were kept at work all aigUt trying to pump out the water repair the break and extricate tha men but thun far without success Description of the Death Trap Tho caisson is located 1200 yards from the Kentucky bank in about twentyfive of water Twenty men were at work in it The caisson proper is twelve feet under water and is re Etched by a manhole shaft which projects above the water surface This shaft ia reached by four trap doors from the interior of the caisson which is kept supplied with air at a high pressure sometimes in casfs like this a pressure of two atmospheres iii order to keep out the water and enable the men in tho lower chamber to dig out the sand etc The Burst of Water Shortly 6 oclock last evening while tho men were excavating in the bottom of the caisson the water from the river barst under tho edge the huge machine and tha unfortunate workmen were caught like rats in a trap Of the twenty men in the cais ton when the flooding was first noticed Abe Taylor Frank Haddox Louis Couch and James Merrill succeeded in reaching tho traps to the manhole shaft and escaped The fate of the others is yet unknown but there is hardly a possibility that any of them are alive The nien Entombed Those still in the caisson aro Thomas John son Monroe Boling Foreman John Knox Prank Mayer Fred Soaper Joseph Mc Adams Tom Aih Hamilton Morris W E Haynes Reuben Tyler Chris Childs Thomas Smith John Gordon Louis Cox and Peter Nailor and one other narnu not given Haynes Knos McAdams Mayer and Nailor are white men the others negroes A Survivor Tells the Story Abe Taylor one the survivors tells the following story of the accident and the hor rible flght for life of the panicstricken work men imprisoned in the air chamber beneath tho bed of the river Tho men were at work in the soft bottom of tho river They made snch rapid piro gress today in the muddy surface that the excavation went down faster than the caisson whose great weight was expected to carry it gradually down keeping pace with the work of excavating to a rock founda tion This afternoon an unusual quantity of water began to trickle from under the caiswns edges but the pumps were at work taking it out and no apprehension was felt Gradually the incoming tido increased until suddenly from under the edge of the caisson on every side a flood gushed in A Frantic Struggle for JLifo The men too late realized their deadly peril and all rushed for tho exit into the escape pipe Immediately around the trap door which admitted to liberty and life the frantic unfortunates fought like demons all knowing that but few of them could pass through the inner trap before the airehnm ber was completely ttlled by the inrushing tide Only one could go through ab n time and as one man gained a preeminence he was snatched by his frenzied companions and drawn back into the struggling crowd The Relentless Flood Fours In Meanwhile the flood rose swiftly and re lentlessly The caisson roof was scarcely higher than the mens heads and to be lefl behind was thought to be certain death Taylor says he was the last of the survivors to escape into yie outer lock As he escaped from the clutches of a dozen hands and leaped through the trap into the outer lock he heard Knox the foreman shout For Gods sake hurry boys its getting over my head let the shortest men go first The trap tell back behind Taylor and shut his doomed comrades from view It is sup posed that before any others could escapo they were all drowned A Bora Chance for Iilfe The workmen the punapsi at a late hour lest night howuver thovight there was a chance that somu of the imprisoned workmen were still alive The air gunge on the engine which pumps uiiinto the caisson shows a strong and steady pressure of air in the air shaft and caisson and it ia thought possible that the compressed air in the caisson will bo sufficient to keep the water from rising to the top and that some of the men may be able to keep their heads above water until released The Men mil Bead LATER At 1 a m tha outer chamborof the caisson was reached and three bodies were found All of the men in the caisson proper are known to be dead Messrs Smith Co of New York are the con tracting engineers in charge of the caisson work the Phoenir Bridge company a Pennsylvania corporation have the contract for the construction of the bridge Whisky the Probaible Cause The engineers theory of the accident which is partiaUy supported by facts ob tained from the workmen who escaped ia that the foreman who it is alleged had been drinking while attempting to reduce the air pressure turned the valve of the sup ply pipe too for and the firessure on thei in terior of the caisson became so low that it was not sufficient to keep out the water ACCIDENT ON THEJNION PACIFIC light scalp wounds and C T Dobbins bag agemagter Cruised cut and internal iiiju which may prove fatal fatal Accident in a
