News
Niagara Falls, N.Y., Sept. 6. - Two women and a man were crushed to death and two men were injured this afternoon when a slide of shale rock forced out a bridge leading to one of the stairways in the Cave of the Winds under Niagara Falls. A hundred or more tourists who were in the cave at the time had narrow escapes, many being bruised and cut by the falling rock.

The dead and injured were members of a party of tourists just completing a tour of the cave. It is the first accident since the cave stairway was built in 1880.

The dead were:
A. HARTMAN, Brooklyn.
His wife, LOUISE HARTMAN.
CLARA M. FAUST, Pittsburgh, Pa.

The injured are:
T. W. LEE, Pittsburgh.
FRANK E. HAEHLING, Detroit, Mich.
