Courage of Rescuers Wljo Plunged
Unhesitatingly Into the Turret
How One Man Died.
Boston. — Capt Henry McCrea,
of the Georgia, seated in his cabin
Wednesday, told about the explo
sion on the battleship Monday that
caused the death of nine men and
the injury of 12 others. Said the
“I was on the bridge making the
run for the practice. I was taking
observations of each shot. I saw
we were beating the records of the
other ships of the fleet. On the bridge
I could hear the command from the
after turret. So I knew when the
next shot was coming.
“I heard the shout ‘Fire,’ but there
was no shot, and then I saw men
running aft, and quickly the fire hose,
that is always laid out in readiness
when there is firing going on, was
“I rushed to the after bridge near
the turret to see what was the mat
ter. The water was already being
poured into the turret The boatswain
and Midshipman Gravescroat led the
way for their men with the hose. I
tell you, there was courage! No man
knew what had happened and no man
knew into what danger he might be
“Probably one little act, or rather
one great act, of one of the men, pre
vented a far greater disaster. I don’t
know his name. He’s dead. He and
one other stood by the second gun
that had just been loaded. The last
powder bag that Ijad been put in was
protruding a little from the gun.
When he saw the flash, instead of
dashing to the ladder to save himself,
he crowded home the charge in the
gun and with the help of the other
men got the gun closed before the
flames reached the bag. If the flames
had touched that bag there would
have been an awful explosion, for the
powder was confined in the gun and
would not have flashed as the other
did, but would have exploded. Not a
man in the turret would have been
left alive, whatever other damage
might have been done. That man gave
his life for the others.
“I am told President Roosevelt has
inquired about a man that gave his
life in closing the shutter from the
ammunition room to save the ship
from blowing up. I would be very
wrong to have a story like that go
out, because I cannot find that there
is any foundation for it, or need for
a man to make any attempt to do any
thing of the sort. But if the president
wants heroism let him look up this
brave man w'ho stood by his gun to
save the rest.”
