Add one to each cell:

Set Variable [ $matrix ; Value: MBS("Matrix.New"; 5; 6) ]
# set values
Set Variable [ $r ; Value: MBS("Matrix.SetRow"; $matrix; 0; "Joe¶Miller¶New York¶123") ]
Set Variable [ $r ; Value: MBS("Matrix.SetRow"; $matrix; 1; "Bob¶Jones¶Washington¶234") ]
Set Variable [ $r ; Value: MBS("Matrix.SetRow"; $matrix; 2; "Jane¶Stones¶Los Angeles¶567") ]
# add one to all
