The platform provided for the speaker and other distinguished guests was gayly decorated with the flags of All nations and seats had been provided capable of seating nearly 6,000 persons. President Hayes accompanied by members of his Cabinet Gen. Goshorn John Welsh and others arrived in the building at 2 15 of clock under escort of the first City troop.

A when you watch a dozen men in the employ of a City or Borough at work on a Sand Bank you Are deeply impressed with the idea that the Man who makes the picks understood his business. If a pick was very Light it come Down for fifteen or Twenty minutes when uplifted by a Day labourer employed by a Herald. Pottsville May to. The last of the victims of the Wadesville disaster Benjamin Mosely was found at Midnight in a breast about too Yards from where the miners had been searching. His body was neither burned nor scarred and it is supposed that to was smothered by a fall of a court House. Rockford 111., May la. Just before noon to Day As the Keystone was being placed in the dome of the main Pavilion of the new county court House at this place the entire dome and the Interior Walls of the Structure came crumbling Down with a terrible crash. The building was designed by Henry l. Gay of Chicago and the building Wras let to w. Richardson of Springfield who began the work in the Spring of 1876. The dome was 119 feet from the ground and supported by the front Walls on the outside and two Iron columns on the inner Side. These columns rested upon a Brick a Wall going up from the ground floor to the floor of the court room. The Wall was crushed by the weight of the upper masonry and crumbled like so much Rotten mortar the entire Interior of the building falling taking All the rafters the corrugated Iron ceiling of every room with its Concrete filling and the Iron Joist. The scaffolding fell in a mass carrying with it nearly All the workmen on the top of the building. There were from Twenty to Twenty five men at work at the time of the Accident. The massive Stone top of the dome fell with a terrific crash toward state Street. Timothy Flanagan who was putting in the Keystone of the final Cornice jumped for the Guy rope of the Derrick in front but missed his aim and fell 120 feet to the Earth and was dashed to pieces. The mass of human beings with the exception of four or five who jumped from the windows fell inside the tottering Walls and were buried in the debris. The whole Structure looked As though it would fall and those assembled knew not what to do. To go near enough to the Structure to Rescue those lying in the ruins was hazardous in the extreme but Brave men before the dust cleared away commenced to extricate the dead and dying. Indescribable horrors ensued. Men Lay terribly mutilated beneath those rocks shrieking for assistance that was Only rendered at the risk of the lives of the bystanders. William Glass was extricated but one of his legs was left beneath a ponderous Stone. He expired in great agony upon the Green Sward in front of the court House. A negro jumper from a window sixty feet from the ground and though badly injured will probably recover. Within ten minutes after the disaster four bodies were recovered by the almost superhuman efforts of the rescuers. The wounded were carried on stretchers to the nearest hotels. A swede named Andrew Bildahl had his head split open but the wound was closed and the victim May live. The anguish of the living was heart rending. The workmen a wives and mothers filled the air with bobs wailing and moaning and the Looker on w As sickened by the sights on every hand. The list of killed is As follows Fred. Haugh a. Haugh j. Pipe a. Ii. Hollenbeck j. Warren George Glass Timothy Flanagan or. Linholm j. Lawson j. Peck and c. Harris. The wounded number eleven of whom two at least cannot recover. W. Richardson contractor and f. Latnrop superintendent had a narrow and thrilling escape. They were on the dome of the building before it fell and were talking of the probability of it f Alii no Wrhen they heard a crash and rushed at once to the West Wall where they stood when the dome went Down. Had they been a moment longer both must have perished. When the dust cleared away both were standing on the Wall. The loss to the building will be from $50,000 to $65,000. The entire front must come Down to the frieze and the plans will probably be changed. Superintendent Latham lays the blame on architect Gay whose instructions were followed out implicitly. Digging for the missing is still going on. A a a Mary you Are very naughty this morning a said a kind old aunt to a Little girl a a but you must learn your lesson.
