"Mr. Chase told me that at the Cabinet

drew forth a pocket New Testament and
said: 'These men will know that Ism for

where, as free as the Constitution and
laws will permit, and that my opponents

yet with this book in their bands, in the
light of which human bondage cannot
live a moment, they are going to vote
against me; I do not understand it at all.'

A member of the Leglalature deearibell
his fall as follows: I heard • low
rumbling sound and felt myself sinking
rapidly. I was facing the gallery and saw
It falling towards me. Fortunately It
did not reach me. I saw menserambllng
oven each other in the gallery and heard
what seemed one unearthly yell of
agony. Then came the crash and I sank
Into darkness. I found myself under a
MUM of rubbish, with a dead body
over me, a wounded man under
me and another at my side. The pocr
fellow under me said, "Oh met bat if 1
could only fear God always ea Ido now;
how wicked 1 have been all my days.
Oh God, forgive me, spare me and .I will
be a true follower of Jeans."- The man at
my side exclaimed, "Oh death where is
tby sting; oh grave where fa thy slat).
'ry 7" I heard a number of cries on all
aides of me; some were ■peaking about
their wives, 'others of their children.
while others were begging for air.- I
believe many died from suffocation, for
although little hurt myself I should
'have died from suffocation if not removed
when I was.
Mr. Jaynes tells the following touching
incident concerning Dr. Brock: I wee
flitting behind Dr. Brook and fell under
him. /kw with my mouth to his cheek,
and could - feel him growing cold. He
asked my name and I told him. he
said: "I am dying; tell my • poor wife
how much 'loved he and -thought al l
her In my last momettla."
Telegrams of sympathy and offering
aid for the sillicted are coming from all
parts of the country. A. citizen of New

CAC OP THE CALAMITY.
An experienced architect who has
viewed the plan of the Capitol, says the
girder which gave way wee composed of
two pieces of wood belted together,
making when combined an area of
thirteen to twenty inches. It was
formerly supported by COIIIOIIIS which
were embsequently removed to Improve
the appearance of the Hall of Delegates.
In the girder was a mortice which
reduced the available . strength to nine
and a half by twenty Inches. The fatal
error was In making interchanges with
ant examining the girders with refer- .
rence to capacity to endure IMO new
strain placed upon them.
Evening—Thera have been twenty-five
additional funerals this ' evening.
Hearses could not be obtained for all of
them, and furniture wagons appropriate
ly draped, had to be used. The funeral
of John M. 'Jazzier, page In the House of
Delegates was attended , by the. General
