'A great force of men are searching
the ruins and work will not be stopped
until every foot of debris has been
it examined'
' I The.Penberthy . Injector company's
.i plant occupied half a square of
_ < f , ground. It was composed of two brick
v'V buildings separated by a 10-foot al-
* \ ley. The rear building , In which the
'JT boiler was located and which was do-
' | Btroyed , was three stories In height.
It is Impossible to toll exactly how
many men were at work In the various
departments of this rear building
when the explosion occurred , but the
company officials Insist that the num
ber was not over 85. There were four
boilers In the plant , two horizontal
ones , which furnished steam for the
engines , and two vertical boilers ,
. -which were used solely to test In
jectors. It was the horizontal boiler
that was In use yesterday morning
that caused the awful loss of life.
Fire Adds Its Horrors.
The awful crash came without the
slightest warning. Those In the front
- building said It seemed like the con
cussion of an Immense cannon. Tho.
floors nnd roof of the rear building
bulged upward and'then crashed down
with their heavy loads of machinery
and' foundry , apparatus. Walls roof
and all dropped into a shapeless mass.
Windows in houses for a block around
were broken by the concussion and
flying bricks filled the neighboring
yards. A dense cloud of dust 'arose
nnd as it settled and was succeeded
by denser clouds of smoke and steam ,
agonized cries began to come from the
heap of tangled wood , metal and
brick. Those only partially buried
frantically dug themselves out and
then as energetically turned to dig
ging for their comrades who were bur
Er led deeper. Flames broke out almost
I Immediately and the horror of fire was
added to the sufferings of the Imprjs-
oned ones.
Almost Immediately after the fire
alarm was turned in calls were sent
out for all the ambulances In the city
and they hurried to the scene. Pend
ing their arrival , neighboring houses
j -were turned into temporary hospitals
i and those physicians who were in "the
vicinity eased tlie suffering one.s as
much as they wore able. The first
ambulances on the scene were totally
Inadfctjuato'to carry thos'e who had al
ready been extricated and express
wagons and similar vehicles were
pressed Into service.
Work of Saving Lives.
As soon as the gravity of the accl-
dent was realized calls for additional
firemen were sent In and apparatus
came flying to the scene from all parts
of the city. While part of the firemen
directed their efforts toward the fire ,
which was burning fiercely In the
center of the ruins , the greater num
ber of them seized axes and crowbars
and began prying out the victims who
could bo seen or whose faint cries
were audible.
The floors and roof had fallen at an
angle and formed a sort of huge
cover , under which the fire burned
fiercely. Not until the flremeri had
chopped through this did their
. streams begin to have an appreciable
.effect on the flames. The sufferings
of those buried beneath were mutely
testified to by the charred and blackened
ened bodies.
'Gradually the rescuers worked their
way downward through the pile. By
this tlmo there were no cries or
groans to aid them , for the flames had
destroyed those unfortunates wound
ed by the explosion. But the work of
rescue continued with unabated haste.
Stretcher bearers stood by and bore
nway the blackened nnd burned bed
The property loss , according to Sec
retary George W. Clillds , Is about
