General Impression that an
Earthquake liad Struck
the City ,
A few moments befrro 7 o'clock
yesterday morniug a dull , heavy detonation
tonation was heard In the direction
of the U. P. bridge , accompanied by
a concussion that was felt aU over the
city , jarring houses and waking their
inmates even in the outskirts , As
the majority of the people were up at
the time , the singular occurrence
caused a pretty general excitement ,
some thinking an earthquake was al
hand , others that a steamboat cxplo
aion had taken place , and many that
something had fallen in their imn
diate neighborhood. It in a curious
fast that to all who were in the house
the concussion seemed to corno from
very near by.
A few witnessed us well as felt the
strange occurrence. A man who
stood on the Ii. & M. bridga ? nd an
other on Tenth and.Jono . ? streets uoro
looking toward the river , all the time
their si ht being directed in the line
of Metz'a biMwory. They felt a very
severe shock and at the same time saw
the air in the direction of ths river
A CtOUD OP FLYIN'O DEBRIS ,
iron , timber , brick and mortar. Ono
uf these men says the msss was
thrown upward to a considerable
height and suddenly spread out in the
| form of a bouquet , the fragments fly
ing like rockets in all d'rections. As
no apparent change was observed in
the brewery , the stack still standing
and tha towering structure remaii ing
apparently intact , it was believed that
n steamboat had blown up on the le
vee near the bridge. However , this
supposition was as far from the truth
as the others.
The true cause of the general alarm
was the explosion of the boiler in
Metz's brewery , which was located in
the new addition recently built at the
north end and immediately upon the
bank of South Omaha creek.
THE SCEJfE OF THE ACCIDENT.
It appears thas about G o'clock Mr.
Richard Seamin , the superintendent ,
started the engine to hoist the beer
in the "wash room" to the store-room
in the second story. There was at
this time , he says , plenty of water in
the boiler and but ten pounds of
steam on There were eight or ten
men in the wash-roorn. As soon a
the work of hoisting was completed
the engine was stopped and the en
perintfiiaent and all the men except
the night watchman , Prod Grieb , and
the man who relieves him , Chris
Sultzjr , left the building to go to
breakfast. The latter turned on the
pumps and started the engine up. It
ia stated by him and wo are informed
by the night watchman that at this
time thcrd was 40 pounds of steam en
and ono gage of water. Sultzm
pissed out of the builJing , and at the
same titno Grieb smarted into the en
gine room to got a bucket of watei
to wash with. He had only i > ot par
tially through the doorway when t > c
explosion took place , and in an iu
etaut he was hurled into the southeast
corner of the engine room and
BOI1IEU BENEATH A MASS OF 1SP.ICK
and mortar. At the same time thi
boiler room and the heavy 12 incl
brick walls wh'cli formed the north
side of the engine room were demo !
ished in the twinkling of an eye , then
broken and splintered parts bcint
scattered far and vide , and letting
the bright light of day fall broadly ir
upon a scene of wrack and ruin novel
surpassed in this city. Nor was the
rain confined to this structure alms
for the flying flues and debris wen
< hutled with terrible force across tin
creek , carrying de.truction and alanr
to many of the adjoining cottage ?
Mr. Sullsir was fortunately not in
jurcd by the explosion , though ven
much alarmed , and
UEAU1SO TI1E CK1ES
of the night watchman , hastened a
once into the building to his relief , ii
which he was seconded by others
who , attracted by the noise of the dis
aster , hastened to the scene. Th (
man was soon dug out from the maai
of brick which covered him , and car
ried immediately to his house , not fa :
distant , when Drs. Coflman and
Parker wore summoned to his assist
It ance. It was found that his left If j
was broken above the knee and hi :
left arm above the wrist. There wen
other severe injuries about hi :
head and body and it is probable hi
tcrnal injuries beside. Ho auflorcc ,
terribly and had to bo put under tl
influence of chlorotorm before hit
wounds could be dressed. At uoot
it was believed that he would proba
bly recover , but it was not cortair
whether the broken members wouli
have to ho amputated or not.
The explosion occurred at a verj
fortunate moment for all except poui
Griob , for had it taken place 'fiftcet
minutes earlier when the full forci
was on hands it would undoubtedly
of them , and later in the day , whet
10 all the men were on duty , ten or fif
toeu must have suffered more cr lei ;
from its havoc. It was fortunateaUc
for Grieb in that , had it been a Bee
end eailier or later and his entire bodj
been in cither room and uprotectedbj
the doorway , hemust have been killcJ
instantly , as there wa ? great pile o
brick thrown on each tide of thothicl
wall in wHch ho stood. The boilei
nhica lay dua east and west was ;
total wreck. The entire outer she !
was destroyed with the exception 01
the central section , five feet in width
which was flattered out straight. Tbi
flues were blown in ? 11 directions , a
majority of them , however , a littli
west of north. The boiler head
which was cf good one-lislf inch iron
was folded together and blown tvi
hundred feet , falling in
east of ihd nwin building. Soroo
pieces and especially the fluea were
blown over ono thou'and feet , and the
latter were found afterward , broken ,
t\visted and bent in all shsprja and hi
one or two instancca so as to act ei
actly as a huge iron boomerang. T-io
great brick stack was cricked In sev
eral places and left leaning a little to
the northwest , looking aa if it might
fall at any moment. The pumps were
displaced and all connections with the
engine dislocated or broken. The
engine was covered up to a consider
able extent with rubbish , but ap
peared to be all right except in a few
minor respects. The boiler iron as
found after the explosion appeared to
be at least half granulated. The entire -
tire north end of the newaddition was
and the windows all broken , and the
lightning rods torn off. One or two
cracks in the adjoining wallj were no
ticeable. Tie whole thing had the
appearance of having been on a big
bust. The boiler was built about
three years ago by Joseph F. Warg
ler , of St. Lous , and with its fixtures
cost S735. The damage to the build
ing and machinery is estimated by
Mr. Ed. Seaman , secretary of the
company , at between § 3uOO , and S-V
000. Both building and machinery
were fully insured against fire in
companies represented by Murp. y
and Lovett , but this will probably
not be available in such a case. Of
course there wiilbe some additional loss
from tne stoppage of the works , whiph
especially at this season of tbe
should bo brewing every 4y
tharo was a good $ tore on hand , be
tween 3,50D and 4,009 barrels of beer
being iu store in the cellars.
Men were set to worlv in less than
an hour after the accident clearing
away the dpbris , and tha tmnigatB
were looking around for a boiler to re
place the one which had created so
nmch confusion by its sudden depar
ture. Mr. Ed Seaman thought tha
boiler t < tkenfroru the Omaha elevators
could bo obtained and if so they would
get 1o running agaiu iua wejk orttn
days. In fact ho said they must bo
running They couldn't lie idle long
this tiico of the year.
The dimago done to houses in the
neighb' ' rhood WMS in one or two cases
very considerable. Mr. Jens Larecn
lived juat across' the creek north of
the brewery and in the line taken by
most of the missiles. His
wife WAI sitting at break-
kfast when tha explosion took place
and his two daughters were still
asleep m an adjoining room. The
house lay with broadside toward the
brewery , with a etable and a few
coops and pens between it and t'io
creek. At least half a ton of brick
struck the house , on every square foot
of its surface , roof and sides and
went through , leaving it like a seivo.
The bro. < kfa.t t b'e was swept clean
and the bed in which the young wo
men e'opt was covered ith the pieces
of shinnies and ceiling of their own
honac. followed by portions of the
boiler room. The whole family , was
alarmed , aud unable to account for
BPDDEK BOMBARDMENT ,
took refuge in the street. The only
injury received by any of the family
was a slight wound on the head re
ceived by Mrs. Larson. The etable
and chicken coopj were riddled and
some of tha feathered inmates hurt.
The damage will reach § 150 or SlJOO.
The next house seriously injured
was that ovrai d by Joseph Brohasky
and occupied by his family and that
of Joseph Barkoeh The families
were up except the children and the
men had gone to work. Ono ot the
iron flues trom the boilar struck the
north slope of tbo root , knocked a
hole through it and fell ovir agiinst
the cottage owned by John Mudsen ,
next door. The lath and plaster fell
m upon the beds cccup'ed by the
children in the first house. Mr. Bro
hasky s litiio boy Eunl was covered
over and badly Bc.ued , but not hurt.
Mr. Barkosh's little 11 mouths old
'irl received a part of the wreck and
had a long scratch on one Lg. On
the south aide of the roof
A B1UCK STKUCK
and parsed clean through , falling on
the floor of tha ramo room. Scores
of brick fell iu the yard and street.
The corner of Sir. MadEen's house
was knocked off , with a portion of the
porch , and the iluo Onally stuck iu Ihc
ground two or three feet deep. Tin
flues , 32 in number , flow everywhere.
One was buried five feet deep at the
corner of Eighth and Jor.es ; one .1

MABITOB MATTERS ,
The Steamer Bed Cloud on Her
Way to StLouig ,
She Meets With an Accident
is Delayed ,
About 8 o'clock Fiiday morning
the steamer Bed Cloud , which went
up the river April 15th , arrived from
Fort Bdnton , having left that point
August 15Lh. Last spring the Red
Cloud in lowering her stacks to pass
under the bridge.let them fall and had
to lie over for repairs. Friday aa
she came by the Smelting Works the
aame operation resulted in a similar
way. Tiio ropes slipped and the
huge stacks fell on the nurricaue deck
with a fearful noise. The damage
was so great that the boat had to lay
over and get mechanics in this city to
repair the in juries , at which work they
found busy by our reporter Saturday
Capt. J. A. Williams was found sit
ting in front of the cabin door and
cheerfully gave us what news he had ,
His boat left Fort Benton with a full
load of passengers and freght , having
really more than her full complement
of the latter on her arrival at Yauk-
ton. Passengers were discharged at
all the principal points , about a dozen
coming to Omaha , and twenty-five or
thirty more destined for Brownville
St. Joe and towns between Omaha
and St. Louis. Of the cargo of freight
abaut } 00 . tons was left , consisting
mostly of wool , hides and po'ts from
Montana , and of the wrecked steamer
"Co1. McLaoit , " sunk near Bismarck ,
last spring , by the "Red Cloud. "
The remaining officers , besides
C.ipt. Williams were L. L. Hine ,
clerk ; Stewart and Fox , pilot ? ; Rue
and Fitzncr , engineers ; Morris , Stew
ard , and Murphy ronto. The boat
loft for St. Louis about noon to-day ,
having baen delayed about 24 hours ,
STORMS OP RAIN.
In conversation with the captain
the litter remarked that they had ex
perienced eome heavy rains on their
way down and that by to-morrow or
day after the water would begin to go
by here with a rush. "Wo don't
know what heavy rains are , down
herd , " said he. "Why between Fort
Randall and Fort Pierre , it came
down with such fearful foreo as to
swoop the banks clean of trees for
fly rods back. If it would
am here as it did up there ,
he river bottoms would all bo washed
ut , and nothing left but deep gullies.
'It was terrible , " he continued ,
'more like a waterspout or tornado
han like one of our rains. " The cap-
ain further stated that the high stage
f water this year had been very un-
isu&l and" favorable for boating. The
vater came up very slowly in the
pring , but it stayed correspondingly
eng , and there has boon no obatrnc-
ion to navigation by low water this
ear. The river at Fort Benton Aug
ust loth was twenty Inches higher
han at the same date in 1870 , and at t
3isiuarck three or four feet higher.
Che largo fleet of steamers has been
> usy all summer , but is nearly
hrough. More freight has been of
'ered than over before , notwithstand-
pg the railroads.
THE BK1DGE NUISANCE. .
The Red Cloud , while in Omaha ,
lay with her nose just under the west
ern pier of the U. P. bridge , and her
stern swinging out in the swift , boil-
ng eddy almost to the second pier.
' 'Tnis is a great nuisance , " said Capl.
Williams , pointing to the great bridge
above his boat , "I expect to find the
Plitfsinouth bridge equally bad ; thai
at St. .Too is nearly so , and there are
DUO or two others further down. "
'I would go on the stand" said he
and swear that no boat is safe in gO'
, ins under that bridge either up 01
down. It ought to have been built al
.8 least live feet higher , which could
been done at a comparatively lighi
cos-t before the work was completed
but of course all the congressmti
were bought up and thought the rni'
road was such a big thing that any
thing it did was all right. It ought t <
bs blown out of water and there shoulc
bo no penalty for a man's raising it it
that way. Things are growing worsi
for steamboats every year and tin
riyor more completely blockaded , not
withstanding it is in violation of thi

A Few Points Concerning the
Trip of the Presidential
Party About Omaha.
They Are Surprised at Its
Beauty and Magnitude ,
From a gentleman who mot the
Hayes-Sherman party at the east
Council Bluffs depot , Friday morn
ing , we have been favored with some
items not yet published. Mayor
Chase , Gen. Williams and the parties
who left Omaha at 7 o'clock on the
dummy for the Council Bluffa trans
fer were informed when they reached
that point , by a gentlemanly conduc
tor of an east-bound train , that it was
quite possible that the train with the
presidential patty would not stop at
the transfer and they had probably
better take his train and go down to
the cist Council Bluffs depot whore ,
as he understood it , the people of the
Bluffs were to receive the presidential
party. Upon arriving at that depot
the train dcspatcher informed Mayor
Ohaso that , as ho under etood it , the
presidential party would neither stop
there nor at the tranfor , but go di-
reotly to Omaha. Ex Mayor Law
rence , of the Bluffs , was at. the depot
and said ho had been appointed chair
man of a committee and expsc'od to
receive the party there. Mayor Chase
replied that if the train did not atop
thera then Council Bluffs might not
care HO much for they were at home ,
but if the train did not stop it would
be a rich joke on the Omaha commit-
too. Ho fien suggested to the train
dispatcher that a man might go down
to the St. Joe cross'ng where tralns
wait a moment , and inform the party
that , the committees f om Council
Bluffo and Omaha desired the train to
stop at the East Depot , if but for a
few moments. This plan worked tea
a charm. Upon arriving the conduc
tor announced that the train would
stop but a moment. Both committees
immediately boarded the train ; the
President appeared on the rear plat
form and shook hands with a half
dozen Bluffites. Mrs. Hayes and
General Sherman were called fnr and
appeared , being cheered. Thn train
th.cn carried the Bluffa delegation to
the transfer , loft them , and then
crossed the bridge.
While crossing the bridge General
Sherman held a consultation with
Mayor Chase as to Omaha arrange
ments. The mayor infoimed him of
carriages , when the geivrjl said he
had ordered ambulancas and wished
the president and party to take a
drive , aud see all they could of Omaha
while stopping over , and did not do-
sive a formal reception. The mayor
asked what carts of Omaha ho wished 1
the party to see , and he replied ' 'sub
stantially the same part as you drove
mo over , a few wcoks ago , up Sherman
Avenno to the fort , to the High
School hill , Hanscom Park and the
military depot. " This plan as the
puWicwore shown was carried out.
At the High School Gener.il Sher
man proposed to visit the third story
for the view , when some ono inquired ,
"General , this must bo a pot town of
yours ? "
Hossid : "Yes , this always was a
favorite town of mine , and I was here
at an early d\y several times. "
Not Gliding just the view to suit
them , Mrs. Hayes proposed to ascend
the tower if thn rest of the party
would follow. This was agreed to at
once. Up iu the tower a general
conversation was carried ou in
regnrd tj the beautiful surroundings
of Omaha. The president said he
was surprised at ita magnitude and
' charming location. General Shermin
, pointed out all points of interest , and
' seemed to be as familiar with Omaha
a-i if ho lived here. He seemed the
leading spirit of the party.
The ride to Honscom park was al ,
the free-will choice of the party. A
jollier party has not been hero foi
many a day. Mra. Hajes everywhere
was the point of admiration.

d , Neb. , September 2.
The arrival of the Pro'ident of tin
United S'atus ' at the post caused i
ie scene of beauty and gayety that wai
fc10 iefc pleasant to look upon. It was posi ;
10 lively the grcatot honor over wit
nessed by a military post. Notwith
10 standing the rain , the iirat call for parade
ado was sounded at the proper time
and at the appearance of Presiden
Hayes the troops were furnied in Km
h and a salute of twenty-one guns wa
fired by the artillery of the. post. Ow
ing to the rain the troops were dia
missed immediately after parade , bu
this action was not taken on the un

their places in front of the command
